It’s with great pleasure that I present to you the next installment in the Cubicle Party mixtape series.

The man behind the decks this time around is San Diego’s own W.Steele, a colleague of HighDef’s resident DJ, Mikey Beats, and also part of the one and only Sleeping Giants Music crew.  The two of us hope you enjoy this journey through hip-hop’s golden era.

The cover art, including the 3D work, is courtesy of my good buddy Sean Stillwell.  If you’re interested in getting any work done by him let me know and I’ll be happy to pass it along.

TheHighDefinite x MikeyBeats: The Breakup

by 5 years, 7 months ago 2 Responses

The latest installment of The High Definite’s mixtape series uses the Cubicle Party songs selected in the last 3 months of last year.  With these songs, we say goodbye to The Aughts and the terrible year capping them off.  Good fucking riddance.

Much thanks goes out to the peerless Mikey Beats of for pushing out yet another quality project for this site.  I’d also like to thank my pal Claudia for working with my childish sketch and somehow turning it into another great piece of cover art.

Tracklist & audio after the jump.  Enjoy.

The High Definite & Mikey Beats Present: The One Year Anniversary Mixtape

by 5 years, 10 months ago Contribute

noname

Once again, I’m proud to present the newest installment of Cubicle Party mixtapes.  These mixtapes are comprised of all the Cubicle Party selections made throughout a 3-month period (this one is from July-September 2009, as well as some songs from the beginning of this blog’s life that never made it onto a mixtape).

I was once again fortunate enough to work with Mikey Beats of the one and only crew.  Much thanks to my buddy Claudia for throwing the album art together and dealing with my vague-ass, indecisive “I want’s” and “make it look like’s”.

Thanks to all of you that have been reading and have helped this thing grow to the level it’s at today.  In return, you get an hour of head-nod music celebrating a golden era of hip-hop music.

Enjoy.

Kenny Powers quotes hastily Microsoft Paint-ed over beautiful landscapes…because I couldn’t think of a good reason not to do this.

5 More Sites That Specialize In Numbered Lists on Obscure Topics

by 6 years, 0 months ago Contribute

I did this list once before, when I first started this blog and I actually made an effort to push out original written content.  Like then, I still haven’t come up with anything great lately that would constitute an interesting list.  Whenever I have, it’s been when I was wasted and the topic usually got washed away in the ensuing blackout that occured after I had my realization.  Since it seems every site on the internet has taken to producing these numbered lists on obscure topics, I’ve decided to just continue my old list cataloging some of the sites that do it better and on a consistent basis for those of you that like having your information fed to you in numerical order. So, in the tradition of laziness that has become a staple of this blog, I present to you: 5 More Sites That Specialize In Numbered Lists On Obscure Topics.  (Click the logos to visit the sites)

#1. List Universe

List Universe was started in 2007 and after frequent front page posts on Digg and Reddit, it is one of the largest sites in the world, serving 1.5 million unique monthly readers and over 4.5 million pageviews a month.  Although recently the list trends have leaned more toward lazily put together photo lists or half-assed video lists, List Universe stays true to form and continues to produce lists that you actually have to read. The lists are pretty well researched and the writing is nothing to complain about.  Coupled with the fact that most of the topics are pretty interesting, you can definitely waste a good part of your morning learning useless shit here.

 

#2. 11 Points

In an attempt to literally one-up the mutlitudes of Top 10 sites out there, list-lover, 11 Points writer, and presumed Jew Sam Greenspan loves lists…so much, in fact, that his About page is also a list.  Since they don’t have a Wikipedia page and that’s pretty much the extent of the research I’m willing to put into each of these, I’ll conclude number 2 by saying the lists mix in actual written lists and photo lists, making this site appealing for both the literacy impaired and people that don’t use furious pointing and grunts to communicate.

#3. Oddee

Like the first version of this list…I find myself at a loss in terms of how to keep describing essentially different versions of the same site and continue to make this shit interesting.  I’ll start by saying this.  The first time I stumbled across Oddee I hung out on the site for like 2 hours.  There are so many interesting lists you can get lost in this shit for a long time.  If you’re at the point of the day when you feel like you’re going to splatter your brains all over your cube in an attempt to quell your overwhelming boredom…have a visit and happily waste the rest of your day in obscure facts on a wide variety of topics.

#4. AskMen Top 10

AskMen.com is huge, which means it has a Wikipedia page…which makes my job easier.

AskMen.com was founded in August 1999 by Ricardo Poupada, Christopher Bellerose Rovny, and Luís Rodrigues. The company secured $500,000 in venture capital in 2000 while its main competitor, TheMan.com, obtained $17 million in financing from Highland Capital. In November 2000, TheMan.com shut down operations, providing an opportunity for AskMen.com to become the largest men’s lifestyle website online.  By 2001, AskMen.com surpassed the other websites in its category to become the largest men’s lifestyle website.

Although their lists aren’t the best researched lists and brevity seems to be a requirement, they are plentiful and the topics are pretty interesting.  Despite the slideshow-style display they tend to favor for the smaller lists, the larger lists, like the most recent “Top 49 Most Influential Men” are indicative of how big the site is, with flashy layouts and built in tangental links. Combine that with all the chicks and other manly shit filled into the margins all over the site, and you’ve got a pretty nice way to spend your morning cup of coffee.

#5. The Oatmeal

I debated for a full 20 seconds about whether or not I should include this one, and decided that yes…people do want their numbered lists on obscure topics in comic form.  Although the lists are pretty brief and get right down to business, the topics, like “7 Reasons To Keep Your Tyrannosaur Off Crack Cocaine” provide all the information you need if you’re looking to kick the obscurity level up a notch, or if you pounded through a bag of mushrooms a half hour before and topics like these have become a horrifying reality for you.

The Cubicle Party: FY09Q2 Mixtape

by 6 years, 2 months ago Contribute

Long overdue, but totally worth the wait.

THDCubiclePartyFY09Q2_Cover

I’m very proud to present the newest installment of the Cubicle Party mixtapes.  These mixtapes are comprised of all the Cubicle Party selections made throughout a 3-month period (this one is from April-June 2009).

This particular one was mixed by the incomparable Mikey Beats of the mighty Sleeping Giant Music crew that resides here in San Diego.  I’d also like to thank Conor over at Six Half Dozen for throwing together the cover art.  He literally threw this shit together last minute for me in about 10 minutes and it was exactly how I wanted it to look.

I enjoyed the shit out of this this morning and I hope you do too.  If not, go choke on something phallic.

Introducing The “Give A Shit” (G.A.S) Project

by 6 years, 4 months ago Contribute

I’ve decided to start an experiment to use this blog of mine to provide some good to the world.  I’ve decided to call this little project the “Give A Shit” Project.  Since I haven’t seen this type of thing done yet on any of the normal blogs I scour on a daily basis to provide you with a diversion from productivity, I have no clue what the results will be or if it will even work.  Regardless, I feel like I owe it to myself to try, and maybe do something with this blog that my parents wouldn’t be utterly embarassed of.  I won’t get too into it here, but check it out here, and if you feel so inclined to help me in this project, I could use the company.

And now back to our regularly scheduled distractions.

The 5 People Responsible For Spencer Pratt’s New Rap Video

by 6 years, 4 months ago Contribute

Accountability. That’s what this post is about. I saw this horrendous musical and visual abortion rearing it’s head up all over the internet for the past couple of days and I was at a loss for words, not a common occurence for yours truly. Although I’m only perpetuating the efforts of this stupid piece of shit by embedding the video here, it needs to be done so you can feel the same degree of boiling rage that I feel. So, please take a minute to watch.

Yeah, that happened. Shit like this happens a lot. These rich and famous douchebags somehow rose to fame because they push stupid shit like this all over the internet and television until we’re forced to know who they are by name. Our anger, however, is usually misplaced on the face that’s pushed out to the public. So who’s really to blame? The parents? No.  They were merely conceiving a child, and, despite any parents’ efforts to raise a well-rounded and decent person, only the person themselves can really determine who they will turn out to be.  So is it the puppet? No. The only things you can truly pin on any of these pathetic individuals are their ability to not die and having the minimal business acumen to take an opportunity to get paid and cash in on it. There are far more devious villains at work here. These assholes are the corporate big-wigs, the spreaders of this filth, and those behind the scenes that bring these atrocities into fruition in the first place.

This particular crime against society, however, will not go without blame. These people will not escape our scorn and ridicule any longer. I did some research and found the people you should really be pissed at.
