Boardwalk Empire (Trailer)

We all know no one can hold a candle to HBO programming, the network is responsible for such shows as The Wire, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Entourage & The Sopranos.  This Fall, Boardwalk Empire will debut on HBO.  The show will be based on the book The Birth, High Times, and Corruption of Atlantic City by Nelson Johnson.  The book will be adapted by screenwriter and producer (former writer & director of The Sopranos) Terrence Winter.  Furthermore, the pilot episode was directed by Martin Scorcese who will be heavily involved in the project throughout.  New faces to HBO drama Michael Pitt & Kelly MacDonald will join forces with some familiar ones in Steve Buscemi (Tony Blundetto The Sopranos) & Michael K. Williams (Omar from the Wire).  Fall is a whole summer away but at least we have Boardwalk Empire to look forward to, enjoy the trailer.

Return of the Crooklyn Dodgers – Crooklyn Dodgers ’95

Man if this isn’t the very definition of 95, I don’t know what is.  Crooklyn Dodgers ’95 consisted of Chubb Rock, DJ Premier, O.C. and Jeru da Damaja they recorded Return of the Crooklyn Dodgers for the Spike Lee Joint Clockers.(played in the first scene)  This was the follow up to the original record for the Crooklyn soundtrack the previous year, the group then consisted of Buckshot, Masta Ace & Special Ed.  I am sure at some point we will have to do a feature on the classic film Clockers as well as the first Crooklyn Dodgers record Crooklyn itself so stay tuned.Download/Stream–>http://www.zshare.net/audio/6005621835b0e6c8/
