Countdown to New Jack City

The debut of New Jack City is just around the corner! Sunday September 19 we'll be throwing down at Langano Lounge in SE Portland. Things kick off at 9pm pst. Expect a heaping helping of New Jack, as we transport you back to a simpler time when flat top fades were chiseled with precision, and clothes were sometimes worn backwards.

Last night me and Cool It Now made a little trip to Langano to prepare ourselves mentally and physically for the grand event. We spent hours pouring over a color-coded Excel spreadsheet as we worked to pinpoint the perfect selection of New Jack joints to deliver Sunday night. There were formulas involved, and something about Macros. Here's a sneak peek at what we came up with:

As you can see it's going to be a great night. Please join us, won't you?

Behold The Human Highlight Film

Whenever I'm out and about in Portland, shopping for fresh produce or what have you, people always axe me, "Hey Highlight Film, where'd you get your name?" Well folks, please direct your attention to the video below...

Please note: That's not me throwing down those dunks. It's a basketball player I liked as a kid. As far as I know, Dominique Wilkins (the real Human Highlight Film) will not be showing up at New Jack City, though the offer has been extended.
