On Wednesday, March 30, The Vagabonds will take the stage at Tampa’s Club Skye for what’s sure to be a rollicking good time. The duo of Baysiqly and E.R. will perform hits from both V For Vendetta and Good Neighbors, and they may even throw a few surprises in the mix.
Special guests for the evening include DJ Smallz (Southern Smoke Radio), producer Drumma Boy, and industry honcho Bigga Rankin.

Help build Boxes.
Boxes is an experimental film project spearheaded by renaissance woman and artist Liz Sanchez. Although the project is under way, they are still raising money to help fund the film to its the ultimate goal of getting theatrical distribution.
Here’s what the project is all about:
Boxes is an avant-garde live show that lifts the lid off society’s stereotypes. Far from a traditional play or musical, this project showcases [Liz's] original music as a vocalist/singer-songwriter, along with dance and bold visuals. It’s an abstract show about E (played by [Liz]), her struggle to escape the boxes, and her need to master them. Through E’s four alter egos, Song, Mute, Riddle, and Word, [the film will] explore the ways we deal with different boxes and the consequences.
As a writer, I can attest that one of the biggest distractions ever, a leading cause of procrastination, is the Internet. Hey, look, I’m a social person. I like to check on my friends via Facebook and Twitter and Tumblr. But I will be the first to admit that hitting up all these various social sites severely minimize my productivity.
The thing is, I need the Internet to write. No bullshit, I mostly use the net for research and reference purposes. And while I’ve recently done
a good an okay job staying off all the “playsites” while working, truthfully, my self control isn’t all that strong. Sometimes I’ll slip away from research to retweet some nonsense or comment on a buddy’s status update. What’s a writer to do?
Well, artist Steve Lambert and buddy Charlie Stigler have created the SelfControl app, a program that will lock you out of Facebook, Twitter, and email, but still allows you to use the Internet for research and writing (and porn).
How does it work? Check it:
Is email a distraction? SelfControl is an OS X application which blocks access to incoming and/or outgoing mail servers and websites for a predetermined period of time. For example, you could block access to your email, facebook, and twitter for 90 minutes, but still have access to the rest of the web. Once started, it can not be undone by the application, by deleting the application, or by restarting the computer—you must wait for the timer to run out.
Proving once again that they are on that bullshit, YouTube took down the
chopped and screwed version of my current favorite song. Fear not, however, music lovers, because as promised, Ms. Rebecca Black has blessed us with an acoustic version of her hit song. We we we so excited, to say the least.
Late pass anyone?
