The Unicorn Princess Royally Reviews ‘Paradise’ & Interviews DBOYD

Posted by

It’s been a minute since I’ve published here on the blog, and it’s good to be back. I return with the news of an incredible release by none other than an Oklahoma native that you might all know by the name of DBOYD (Don’t Blink Or You’ll Die). ‘Paradise’ was released on January 27th, 2017 via Galaxy Swim Team and the EP consists of music from straight out of Game Boy. Listening to releases so cleanly recorded and intricate really made me want to sit down and devour everything Little Sound Dj can do and I suggest you all buy the record to feel the same inspiration that I’m feeling.

Hoodie Highlights… his own mental health.

Sup y’all? =) President Hoodie here with, uh… no interview this month.

That’s right. I’m taking the month off from my Hoodie Highlights interview column post-MAGFest for my own mental health. haha

That said, there’s probably some of of you that have been reading my interviews over the last few months wondering why in the world I’m doing a mental health focused series in the first place. Figure here at the start of 2017 is as good a time as any to share a brief version of my story. Read on if you’re curious.

Hoodie Highlights… Jesse Martin aka FLOOR BABA!

Sup y’all? =) Keeping the mental health awareness train rolling here on the blog, I’m back with another guest to talk about the tricky topic on Hoodie Highlights!

As is the custom, today’s guest is another ‘doer’ in and around the chiprealm. If you’ve been tuned in at all these past few years, there’s a good chance you’ve either heard his music (including a couple of ChipWIN subs!) or something he’s had a hand in publishing. Kuma even talked to him here on The CWB back in 2013! (…where in the world has the time gone?). He’s also a member of our newly created mental health support & awareness Facebook group, “It’s Still You”, which you can find more about here.

Everyone welcome to the blog Jesse Martin aka FLOOR BABA of DESKPOP!

Hoodie Highlights… Stemage [again]!

Posted by

Sup y’all? =) In an attempt to actually keep my interview column the monthly affair it’s supposed to be, I return to you with the latest edition of Hoodie Highlights! As with last month’s edition, the primary talking point is once again mental health, a topic that’s likely going to be my focus for a good while now. If for no other reason that I want to keep talking about it, and think that maybe we should!

Today’s guest thinks similarly, so much so that he’s returning as an interviewee here for a second time! The poor soul…

Everyone, once again, welcome Grant “Stemage” Henry to the blog!
