Reviews @ BEATMAKA.com (Heaven For Climate)
FLAVA'.....This track had lots of Flava'....You want something new and different...this is it. Lots and I mean lots of character in this track [and yes, Flava’]. There were two small speed bumps…1. In the bass towards the end of the track and 2. The man's voice and women singing at the end didn’t jazz me as it sort of brought me down from an emotional high from what the rest of the track was about.....but other than that everything was SWEET as a cherry pie….Nice ambient vocals and ever changing beat really gets the mix together for some serious Jammin’…But what really got to me was the variety of the track…kept me on my toes not knowing what was coming next…The kids at the end reminded me of the streets here in NYC during the summer…which made me feel right at home. Nice Freshman intro…Welcome to Beatmaka.com!!! Bottom line: Flava, character and lots of variety = download [Even though we had two speed bumps]__ **** 4 stars out of 5 **** [could have been 5, but speed bumps slowed us down to a 4]__ AG --alguerrero
This one is great! Guitarflavored triphop. I would rate if 5 but there is a serious flaw I want to point out: While playing the bass seems to be at few points 'out of control' for example around 0:45 and then at the end of the turntable session at 2:26. This should be fixable.--tonik

LoadPuller's Artists of the Week for Nov. 23rd to 30th:
Leaving Jezebel and nervegasm
.........(THANK YOU SO MUCH!!....))
" like them all... very cool...
but, i really love 'the street part 1'. it's something i can just close my eyes and groove to. would love to hear it out at a club. i'm gonna dwnld it so i can listen to it in hi-fi on-demand, without waiting for the endless dial-up buffering!
"Listening to "Drive"......
Seems like this would be a cool film score....
It's not a "song", per se, but very cool Music....
I can hear this track backing an Urban video thingy...
Tasteful - creative..... - sensitive, strong track. " --droolymutt
"Heaven for climate is my absolute favourite of yours. Especially when you play around with the flanger in the middle of the tune and these guitar chords are awesome, even though I feel like having heard them somewhere else before."--PNFA
"you're the first artist i've listened to since joining the forum yesterday and i couldn't have gotten off to a better start .. every song was a solid atmospheric groove .. heaven and blue sky were outstanding .. peace."
"Ok, listened to "Render".
Not really my favorite genre, but I like the guitarish parts of it..."
"Listening now to The Street pt1:
Great bass intro. Beats are cool, very funky. Nice atmosphere. Simple & effective tune. Very strong sound & the guitars are good too. Seems to lack something.. a vocal maybe? I'd prefer a few changes in the drum loop too but it works well.
All in all a good solid tune"
"I heard some of your songs, my favourite is
Heaven for Climate
And I know that you was here Song of the Day
Very unique soundstyle you have "
"Very cool, unique sound! Heaven for climate is my favourite - it's SOTD "
"The sonic tension of 'Drive (the street) is impressive. It's highly melodic yet even more interesting in it's textures. "

JAMAICAN PHRASES or PROVERBS

(Deliver that which you promised, don't just talk about it!) (15)
stay out of trouble or gossip. Means I came here to (whatever you came for) not get involved
in politics or gossip. (29)"Carry Go Bring Come" (gossip) (12)
"A so im tan" (that is what he is like)
"tan deh!" or "yu tan deh!" (just you wait!)
"Tan tedy", stand steady, means "hold still". (5)
Bunks Mi Res (catch my rest, take a nap) (5)
"yu dam Lagga head bud" (stupid) (14)
"What sweet nanny goat a go run him belly" is a
cautionary Jamaican proverb which translated means:
What tastes good to a goat will ruin his belly. In
other words - the things that seem good to you now, can hurt you later... (10)
"tek smadi mek poppy-show", which means to make fun of
someone or shame them, making them look ridiculous. (5)
"You too red eye" (meaning, you're too envious) (14)
Ya No See It? (you know?) (1)
"the gal come wine up on me," it would mean that the girl came and was
dancing up on me. (17)"Chicken merry; hawk deh (is) near", it's a Jamaican
proverb which simply means, every silver lining has its dark cloud
Even in the happiest times one must still be watchful. (22)
"Fire de a Mus Mus tail, him tink a cool breeze". Set a Rat's tail
on fire and he's thinks there's a cool breeze. Used to describe
someone or something (the system for example) that is clueless. (4)
This characterizes the delusional complacency of the upper classes. (22)

"Me throw me corn but me no call no fowl"
It evokes the image of a farmer silently scattering who is
saying, in effect: "Don't call yourself a chicken just because you eat my
feed; I never said I was endeavoring to feed the chickens." That is, "You
are who you show yourself to be, not who you might say you are." (21)
"Sorry for maga dog, maga dog turn round bite you". This metaphor extends
very well to all manner and sort of do-gooding and should be considered before
any hasty acts of charity! (22) giving help to someone and they show no sign of thanks and may even scorn you for it. (29)
"Mi throw mi corn, but me no call no fowl". refers to the conversational
technique of throwing out a provocative statement (throw corn) in an indirect
manner, thus forestalling any accusations of personal insult. (22)
"Sweet nanny goat have a running belly". It's a barnyard analogy akin to the
grass is always greener, but much coarser, noting that the sweet foliage avidly
sought out by the nanny goat gives it diarrhea (running belly). It's a blunt
way of warning someone off temptation. (22)
"cock mouth kill cock" really can't be expanded upon any further, nor can the
similar "If a fish coulda keep him mout' shut, him would neva get caught". (22)
somebody who chat too much (29)
"Everyting Crash". The topic is social chaos. Also, "come bad in de morning
can't come good a evenin'", and the even more pessimistic "every day bucket
go a well, one day di bucket bottom mus drop out". (22)
Mashin up of one's plans (29)
"Wanti wanti can't get it, getti getti no want it", i.e., the Have-nots covet
what the Haves take for granted. (22)
"Trouble no set like rain", that is, unlike bad weather, we are often not
warned by dark clouds on the horizon. (22)reminder to be careful (29)
Jamaican proverbs consistently counsel patience and forebearance, as in the
beautiful image "time longer than rope". The child must "creep before him
walk". And remember, "one one coco fill up a basket", take it easy and fill
up your shopping basket one item at a time. (22)
"Every mikkle makes a muckle", refers to thriftiness, similar to "a penny
saved is a penny earned". (22)

22 WAYS TO KILL A MAN WITH YOUR BARE HANDS
"Free my hands and I'll varnish this
floor with your brains!"
(from "The Scarlet Citadel" by Robert E. Howard.)
Sometimes when you are threatened with physical violence, a weapon to
defend yourself with is not always available. Your hands, however, are always
with you, and can be as lethal as any weapon. Below are a list of attacks that
police are instructed not employ, as they may prove deadly.
1. TEMPLE - A very susceptibile vital spot. If struck with sufficient
force, may cause unconsciousness or death.
2. NASION - This is the summit of the nose. If struck with sufficient
force may cause death.
3. PHILTRUM - This is the area between the upper lip and the bottom of
the nose. Attack to this area may also cause unconsciousness or
4. HOOK TO JAW - A powerful hook punch to the front side of jaw may
snap an enemy's neck. Fatal.
5. ADAM'S APPLE - A sharp blow here may cause enemy to asphyxiate.
6. SOLAR PLEXUS - The small of back. May cause death.
7. TESTICLES - The strong, focused pain of a vicious low blow may
cause shock, resulting in death.
8. BASE OF CEREBELLUM - A powerful blow to the nape of the neck,
causing mortal damage.
9. COCCYX - A powerful blow to the tail bone. Fatal.
10. FULL NELSON - Stand behind the enemy, put your arms under his, and
lock your hands behind his head. Bending the neck forward may either
break neck, asphyxiate enemy, or cut of supply of spinal fluid to
brain, causing brain damage or death.
11. HALF NELSON - Again, standing behind enemy, but one arm is used to
pin one of enemy's arms.
12. BRAIN BUSTER - Bend enemy over towards you, placing him in a
headlock. Grab the back of his belt, and haul him into the air,
vertical, upside-down. Allow yourself to fall backward, landing on
your enemy's head, which will absorb your combined weight. Most
effective on concrete or gravel.
13. RUSSIAN OMELET - Cross enemy's legs. Fold enemy by pinning his
shoulders to ground upside-down and placing his legs above him. Sit
on his legs, folding the bass of the spine. Fatal.
14. HEART PUNCH - A strongman's attack, it is simply a powerful blow
to the heart. (Many years ago, the wrestler Ox killed an opposing
wrestler with this attack.)
15. UPPERCUT - An upward strike to the bottom of the jaw with the heel
of the hand, causing the enemy's head to snap backward. May shatter
16. ABDOMEN - A substantial blow to this area may rupture a vital
organ, causing death.
17. RIB CAGE - A vicious shattering of the rib cage may cause grave
18. HEAD-TO-WALL PUNCH - A swift, hard, cold-cock punch to an enemy's
face while he is standing near a wall may drive his head into it,
causing the back of the skull to shatter fatally.
19. PINNED DROP KICK - Standing behind enemy, holding his arms
straight back. A drop kick to the back without releasing arms may
severe spine, causing death.
20. HEAD WRENCH - Grabbing an enemy's head by the mouth and the back
of the skull, then twisting with a sudden, violent jerk to rend
vertabrae, may easily cause death.
21. CHOKE HOLD - Once a favorite of law enforcement officials, has
often proved deadly. The right arm goes over the enemy's right
shoulder, and grips the back of the head. The left arm comes over his
left shoulder, reaches across neck, and grabs own right forearm. With
enough pressure applied, causes brain damage or death.
22. HEAD YANK - Bend enemy forward, grab head, and pull back with
convincing force. May seperate delicate vertebrae, causing death.
(nrv: got kung fu?)
I wish I could live free
Hope it's not beyond me
Settling down takes time
One day we'll live together
And life will be better
I have it here, yeah, in my mind
Baby, you know someday you'll slow
And baby, my hearts been breaking.
I gave a lot to you
I take a lot from you too
You slave a lot for me
Guess you could say I gave you my edge
But I can't pretend I don't need to defend some part of me from you
I know I've spent some time lying
You're looking all right tonight
I think we should go
(from the album" Turn On The Bright Lights")
(it's to late.. but.. what the heck!.. this is a freaking blog!..)
this is it
there are no hidden meanings
you can't get there from here, and besides, there's no place else to go
we are already dying, and we will be dead for a long time
there is no way of getting all you want
you can't have anything unless you let go of it
there is no particular reason why you lost out
on some things
the world is not necessarily just! being good often does not pay off
and there is no compensation for misfortune
you have a responsibility to do your best
it is a random universe to which we bring meaning
you don't really control anything
you can't make anyone love you
no one is any stronger or weaker than anyone else
everyone is, in his own way, vulnerable
there are no great men
if you have a hero, look again: you have diminished yourself in some way
everyone lies, cheats, pretends (yes, you too, and most certainly i myself)
all evil is potential vitality in need of transformation
all of you is worth something, if you will only own it
progress is an illusion
evil can be displaced but never eradicated, as all problems
yet it is necessary to keep on struggling toward solutions
childhood is a nightmare
but it is so very hard to be an on-your-own,
each of us is ultimately alone
the most important thing, each man must do for himself
love is not enough, but it sure helps
we have only ourselves, and one another
that may not be too much, but that's all there is
how strange, that so often, it all seems worth it
we must live within the ambiguity of partial freedom,
partial power, and partial knowledge
all important decisions must be made on the basis of insufficient data
yet we are responsible for everything we do
you can run, but you can't hide
it is most important to run out of scapegoats
we must learn the power of living with our helplessness
all of the significant battles are waged within the self
you are free to do whatever you like
you need only to face the consequences
what do you know... for sure... anyway?
learn to forgive yourself, again and again and again...
