So the First Official HOR Brunch Shitshow was yesterday and I could tell by the illegal amount of Jameson going around and the way Denman was grinding on tables that everybody was feelin’ pretty turnt! G’wan witcho day-drinkin’ selves! Twerk ’til the break of dawn!
Anyway, here’s something a bit more low key for ya since I figure the majority of yall are feelin’ the struggle today. Here’s the latest installment of Fact Magazinet’s mix series featuring an hour long trip curated by German producer, DJ Koze. Sometimes twinkly, sometimes glitchy, sometimes retro, this mix takes you on a sonic adventure through some of Koze’s favorite releases so far in 2013 – including Herbert, Christian Loffler, Bibio, and a random surprise from Harry Belafonte (which is definitely not from 2013 but it’s okay because it’s a totally welcomed additive to the vibe). Trust me – it’s a great night to settle in with this one. Get your life together!
[I regrettably inform you that there is no tracklist for this mix but they're slowly picking it apart over on the SoundCloud page if you're looking for a specific track!]
The Queen of Mountain Dew, the Sultan of Spam, the Ambassador of bad rapping has once again resurfaced landing on a couch somewhere in Atlanta, GA. You know he’s serious because he went out and got promo photos and videos made. You also know that it would lead to a freshly pressed HOR post. It’s hard for me to say what hasn’t already been said because he’s so bad, his performance is the punchline in itself. You would think for going into hiding for over a year that he used the time to work on his “craft” and get better. Nope. It’s the same Ziplok quality that we have come to love. Here is a youtube video he did in front of hundreds, correction….. a cameraman and a few bartenders at a spot in GA.
Hey remember that “UR a HATA” track? It was one of the few songs that was somewhat catchy production wise before Zip spits on it. Worry not, he reminds you how bad it is, LIVE!
Here’s to another run at Myspace stardom. WITH THAT SAID, You kind of have to give respect where it’s due. Myself and the readers of HOR have yapped at Ziplok for over 3 years now and it’s pretty much a wrap on what we’ve already said about him. Zippy has stood the test of time and keeps hammering away at it. To be in the HOR crosshairs, still putting forth the effort regardless of how bad we think it is and how broke he stays chasing a pipe dream at 35, Zip keeps going and at this point, he’s at least entertained us for a long ass time.
In the 3 plus years HOR has been live, we have come across some interesting people during our internet travels. Everyone from pissed Myspace rappers, club promoters, DJ’s, photographers, and that one Elvis impersonator. Since part of the site does poke fun and call people out for some the less talented things they do, obviously we get some push back from those people we talk about. Thats totally expected and not surprising in line with what we do. However, we are really good at what we do so for the people we talk about on here, it really gets under their skin. So what I did was take some of the most heated emails, comments, messages and give you a behind the scenes look at just how angry some people get. Enjoy!
ZIPLOCK BILL THE PHOTO GUY
The under 15 teen fans of the Jolleys were mad but the icing on the cake was the fact their mom kept raging. Calm down kids, it’s just a shitty music review. Mamma Jolley
Pictures? Felony? Aint nobody got time for that
ETA SILVER G
Not gonna lie, I miss the Silver Gman. He hasn’t logged onto to any social media in two years after our Silver G post. His meltdowns were legendary. Looking back at these is like seeing the writings of a famous author. Each line of rage outdoing the next. He would send me messages and would make himself more angry as the messages kept coming in. Just like the Elvis he sought out to be, he is truly the KING of HOR.
“I have the right to bear arms”
Thats the best of the best. There are hundreds to pull from but these were without a doubt my all time favs. People should realize that this is just a corny blog that makes dick jokes and finds off the wall shit to talk about. It’s never been that serious. Relax people and enjoy the LuLz.
KW Griff ft. Porkchop – “Bring In the Katz” (.rar Kelly Remix)
SUP DUDES. I took a tiny hiatus from mixtape hunting but I’m back and I hope you’re ready to turn the fuck up. Philly DJ/producer, Dev79, just dropped his Street Bass Bootlegs 3 compilation and it’s totally off the chain. Like, it’s gonna turn your ho hum Saturday cookout into a wild weekend rager – trust me. You’re not even gonna know what hit ya.
Not only did Dev79 include a rack of his own original productions and remixes in the compilation, but he also recruited other producers like Starkey, .rar Kelly, and Distal to remix everything from Ciara to Mike Jones to Danny Brown. Tons of boom baps and bone rattling bass to scratch that itch for ya.
Get your god damn life together and download this mixtape. Don’t act like I never did anything for you. See ya next week!

Our second installment of HOR Sessions is gonna get fuckin wild with Baltimore’s favorite DJ Jewo, the Jedi dick slingers from Dicksquad, RACECARBED. Bagel and Stanley have been throwing down high energy sets for a couple years landing them at some the premier venues such as U Street Music Hall while playing at some of the most hype parties from New York (Kat face Party), to Philly (Mad Decent Mondays), and holding it down in their hometown of Baltimore (part of Dicksquad)
While we were on our May vacation, I discovered a weird corner of the internet which somehow landed me on the Facebook page of a guy named Ken Dinners. I haven’t been able to find his location but I’m guessing he’s somewhere in the northwest. Basically what Ken does is ask random women on Facebook to see them naked. I don’t know if he’s the biggest perv/douche online or the funniest because afterwards, he screenshots their reactions and post them on his “Fan Page” which as of right now is at 36 strong. Here is one of them from his page. I wonder if anyone has actually sent him nudes? With the funny comes the douchey. His over the top use of the words “Swag” and “Yolo” can be a bit much to handle. I don’t know what it is about Ken Dinners because he looks like the biggest lowlife loser but at the same time I can’t stop laughing about how funny he is with women. Also, he’ll post random photoshops of himself. Here is the “Yolocopter” Stop on by his page to read the shenanigans of Ken Dinners. One day he’ll get nudes. In the meantime, “Bye haters”
Very excited to introduce the next project to fall under the HOR umbrella called “HOR SESSIONS”. In addition to our forthcoming podcast, HOR Sessions is a vehicle that finds some of the best known, and yet to be known talent throughout DC and beyond. We knew we hit a home run on the first at bat by getting vibe specialist, Chris Nitti to kick things off. Chris has been doing his thing for years wether it’s warming up a crowd at U Street Music Hall, or taking people on a rooftop journey in the District. Chris is also a contributor with our homies over at Blisspop. Get ready to go deep, HOR Sessions, with Chris Nitti.
On a quest to find something different, Jagwar Ma came to my rescue. The Australian duo just curated this immensely interesting mix for The Fader, titled “Livin in the Past”. It kicks off with sample from “Groundhog Day” and the rest is history. ”Livin in the Past” is only thirty minutes long but it’s one hell of a journey. They guide you through the 60s via The Velvet Underground then through South Africa via Miriam Makeba then through Jamaica via The Wailers and through everything in between. It’s unbelievable how cohesive “Livin in the Past” is. Fuck genres. It’s all about ~vibes~ now and Jagwar Ma is coming correct with it.
Jagwar Ma just announced a new album, Howlin’, expected for release on 6/10, so be on the lookout for that. Something tells me these guys aren’t tryna be locked into anything but so far everything from their corner has been hella psychedelic. SO ENJOY LIFE OKAY. That’s what it’s all about.
Tracklist: 1. Bill Murray – Winter Prediction (Excerpt from Groundhog’s Day) 2. Sonny and Cher – I Got You Babe (Excerpt from Groundhog’s Day) 3. Jono’s Mangled Mosaic with bits and pieces from: -3a. The Velvet Underground – Here She Comes Now -3b. Jimi Hendrix – Living in the Past (Excerpt from Hendrix Concerts) -3c. Lonnie Donegan – Love Is Strange -3d. J Dilla – Nothing Like This -3e. Serge Gainsbourg – Requiem Pour un Cour -3f. Velvet Underground – Heroin -3g. Primal Scream – Don’t Fight it Feel It 4. Jagwar Ma – Man I Need (Time and Space Machine Dub) 5. Cut Copy – Sun God (Andrew Weatherall Remix) 6. Mester Geraldo e Sua Bateria – Mistura No.1 (Ma’s What Love Dub) 7. Miriam Makeba – Amampondo 8. Storm Queen – It Goes On 9.

HOR has gone from dick jokes and Shitty internet rapers to dick jokes and DJ fails and I’m totally ok with that. This video was sent to my youtube inbox and thought it was a gem. Shoutout to Deejay Sequel for sending me this. He sent me the video but is not the dude “scratching” so please, don’t troll him off the internet. Can you find the multiple offenses in this video? Got any videos you would like to share? Please post/message them to the HOR FB PAGE.
Also here is a callback from the “Female Promo Shoot” post, I don’t think that Juicy M chick gets the point of the post.
