Welsome again to my site for the massively popular entertainment machine known to the world as Crowned Eagle Entertainment. 
This is the home of some of underground music's most innovative artists and influences. Any album that features or is produced by a member of Crowned Eagle Entertainment is taken to a higher level. Any live performance featuring anyone from Crowned Eagle Entertainment is taken to a higher level. It is my goal to see 
talent the majors don't see and to display what the political asylum that is called main stream music withholds from a public that deserves to hear it. I, myself, have outlasted and out-performed many artists that were said to be much better than me as critics who are destined to be chained to the lake of fire for not taking a professional unbiased approach when critiquing the results of my hard work then quietly limp away in morbid deadly frustration. 
This site and associated social network pages are for your enjoyment and celebration of the longevity of the entertainment and music career of M.C. Too Tall and associated individuals. Not to spew lies about us. That being said, all comments within good taste are welcome and remember censorship is an outrage!

Thank you.

Crash 'n' Burn and Red Planet

Greetings, my people!!!

You might be pleased to know that I have found a last minute venue for my September 1st Crash 'n' Burn Birthday Bash! It is Ambiance Lounge at 1932 Stillwell Ave in Brooklyn NY which is Ironically the same address where my Red Planet event was first launched with Ian Ford. The bands booked include Box Of Crayons and DLS and possibly Bop Monroe and Pocket Monster. Show starts around 7PM and as always, it's absolutely free!!!

Speaking of Red Planet and Ian Ford, having learned from Rumble Filthskin that after a brief shut down that Lit Lounge is reopening at it's original location at 93 Second Ave come September 11th, I see that as cause for celebration and who better to do a re-relaunch of Red Planet with other than the original resident DJ, Ian Ford as a guest DJ!!? The return of the Red Planet kicks off Tuesday September 15th exactly 1 week after my Crash 'n' Birthday Bash!!! Joining Ian will, of course, be the 3 residents, Rumble Filthskin, Speed Basser and Illson. This will be a re-relaunch blast! Welcome back to the Red Planet!!! Woooooh!!! 

Have a sexy day with your shirt off.

Too Tall and Spaz Squash It
It is only fair to tell you, the many adoring and supportive fans out there that my previous DJ, Spaz had recently hit me up on the ol' Facebook messenger. Years have passed, slightly over 3 and whatever animosity that may have existed between us in those years have dissolved. He is doing well, has a 9-5 and a loving and supportive fiancé and now resides in the great state of Texas. He told me of his experiences in his last days at the Dark Water event to which he was a resident DJ and the rest is all private. Is he working on any sort of comeback? Well... That's private too. That being said, I will ask that nobody pick on the lad. Okay. That's it.

ElevAtioN sizzles in August!!!

August really sizzles with the next ElevAtioN come August 16th! It's really happening! No Survivors is REALLY going to perform at a Crowned Eagle event thanks to negotiations between our new event coordinator, DJ Grave who has been ElevAtioN's resident DJ since the spring. Also on the bill are Blut Reaktor and a returning V3SS3L. Grave will also be DJing between sets with one of our original residents, DJ 5witch.HitteR. Our new hostess, Kirsten Wicked will be joined by co-hosts that include Jeremiah Black from Dungeon X. Top that off with super drink specials, sexy gogo girls and pizza and you got yourself a Sunday night party you are not going to want to miss! ElevAtioN, your Gateway to Gotham!

October Nineth

What's really good, my people!!!

I would like to take this time to say that by October 9th there should be another PHO EP out and I think we're going with the title of one of our songs as the title of the EP which is "Onslaught". The song was released early this year has that powerful beat that the new PHO material has become known for. Other tracks to be included are "Trash Glam" and "The Pigs Ain't Gonna Get Me Alive!" Yeah, that's me on vocals on both those tracks. Two versions of "Where Heaven Is", which were previously planned to go on my next solo album may go on the PHO EP instead. I'm the big shot of the neighborhood. Everyone that matters respects me and whoever doesn't respect me simply hasn't paid their dues. I give the people exactly what they need in a way that is palatable. I don't produce unlistenable noise and try to pass it off as music and I don't book lousy acts at my events. People know what's up. They know the time.

Word.

...and the pigs ain't gonna get me alive! 🐷🐷🐷

The Kirsten Wicked Era Begins!!!
Okay! Okay! It is official! Crowned Eagle Entertainment has a new staff member and a new full time hostess for our flagship concert/party event, ElevAtioN and that person is Kirsten Wicked. 
She is young and vibrant and hails from the Bronx much like the original hostess, Luna Vega who happens to be a very close friend of hers and is STILL part of our staff because she's important to the ongoing development of Crowned Eagle Entertainment. Kirsten has her own Crowned Eagle page and as that page states, she came in through the massive punk rock scene that exists in the Bronx and had done some important work for the VampireFreaks street team. The pending date for her debut will be Sunday August 23rd for the August Edition of ElevAtioN and she will be joined by Neffy, who will be filling Kirsten's vacant seat as gatekeeper and another name and face you need to start associating in your mind with Crowned Eagle Entertainment, DJ Grave and a returning original resident DJ 5witch.HitteR. We definitely have a lock on Statik Vision as one of our scheduled bands with two more slots to be filled. I may even perform myself if Scetlett's up to it or if I can find an adequate DJ to back me up. As you know, I don't do these solo things with a back track. It just doesn't have the same appeal. That's on the shelf for now anyway but what I am really personally excited about, so much so that my heart races, is that Kirsten Wicked agreed to host these events with no questions asked. She's on board and is about as excited about it as I am! The Kirsten Wicked era is about to begin! Isn't that something!

Stamp Out Racism and Conserve Energy
List of random countries... 

Italy 
Spin 
Germany 
England 
France 
China 
Portugal 
Mexico   
United States of America 

It is not legal to just walk into any of these countries and just start working without some form of process. 
People do it, but that doesn't mean it's legal. Many of my friends as myself, for example, have ancestors who came here from Italy by boat at the turn of the 20th century. If they would've gotten off the boat without filling out some paperwork and getting a green card, it would've been illegal. My grandparents came from Italy. My uncles fought in World War II as Americans against Mussolini's regime in Italy. 
This isn't an anti Mexican thing. I personally have worked with and made friends with people who came from Mexico and went through the process of immigration, filled out whatever paperwork they had to fill out and became United States citizens. Guess what. None of them are on the side of any group that is rightfully called illegal immigrants. One woman I worked with said "I did it, got my shots and everything, waited for the green card. Why can't they do it?" I suppose she would be seen by some as "self loathing" because she didn't believe in breaking the law to work here. I think penalties against urinating off to the side where no one can see unless they're specifically looking for the "offender" are too harsh as are penalties against drinking a beer while waiting for a bus but I believe in my heart of hearts that there is nothing too harsh about today's immigration laws and they should be followed and just as importantly, they should be enforced. 
I can say all this and not look hypocritical to any self respecting human being. 
The end.

Disciplining your Asian Slave
Some cultures take a while to adopt the ways of another. While individuals and scenarios obviously vary, there are things common due to a common culture and upbringing. In western culture, the movement over the last hundred years or so is to make things equal among men and women from the work environment to other social environments right down to the household. In a "typical" household in which both spouses are white, you see a lot of give and take going on. Compromise to a happy medium. Among the Asian families I know that haven't been "Americanized", I've noticed that whatever the man of the house says goes and that's it. I've seen this in Arab households too. Bottom line is when you're raised on certain boundaries and a certain protocol then that is what you will take into adulthood and relationships. Perhaps there are Asian women who grew up with a father who took on that alpha male role and they start up a relationship with an American white man and they're not used to being asked what they think about certain things. Perhaps it is in essence, a culture shock. On the other hand, if someone is in social media groups pertaining to Asian slaves then they are in pursuit of a slave and/or already have a slave and really need to look into where they stand as a master and how stern of a master they want to be seen as. If a slave sees benevolence as a sign of weakness then they need to either scale back their benevolence and be more stern or set their slave free to find a master that better suits them. There are western white men who do a fine job of dominating and disciplining their Asian slaves resulting in an understanding of the roles of both and a bond that usually can last for literally decades.

Sullivan Hall in the Summer of 2012
Finally, let me address this once and for all... 
I have been accused of philandering in 2012 by a certain female who shall remain nameless. This person is making bogus claims that on the one and only night when Berlin was held at Sullivan Hall, I made out with someone other than Jennifer. While I did arrive at Sullivan Hall alone that night, none of this other nonsense happened. If anyone tells you that I'm trying to hook up with other females it is a lie. 
Also, my choice of assistant for my promotion is because of her knack for promoting. She did a fine job for Matty and Alesci at Hotel Chantelle and for Pyramid and I figured she can do the same for me. She went above and beyond and I could not have chosen a more loyal assistant for this promotion. She still works with me as my assistant, booking bands and such and she is proud to be part of Crowned Eagle Entertainment as I am proud of the progress she has made working with me and learning from me and my years of experience and there's nothing more to it than that. It is not a front to get her clothes off. I need her, absolutely and most definitely, but not for that purpose. Let me add that anybody who says anything contrary to what I said about this subject is not only a liar but a filthy bottom feeding liar. 
Thank you and may God bless.

The Racial Divide via Social Engineering
Chuck D once said in an interview, in not so many words that when a young black man isn't a thug or a gang banger or a drug dealer, the other people from the neighborhood get on them and say that they're not black enough. He compared that lifestyle to a trap and went on to say that by robbing and selling drugs to each other, they're actually doing the work of those who want to see the extinction of the black race. Public Enemy was very popular when the lyrics were talking about what white politicians and businessmen were doing to the black community but albums like Muse-Sick-N-Hour-Mess-Age came out in which the lyrics in those songs were telling the black community not to fall for these traps and to look at their community and stop hurting each other, one song from that album got air play and you never heard a new song on commercial radio again even though they've made several albums since. 
I chalk that up to social engineering. "Black people do this and white people do that" or "White people are supposed to have this look and style and black people are supposed to have that look and style" and keep everybody divided and not talking to each other. The media has a habit of trying to silence, discredit or shame anyone who pretty much says we're human first before any particular race. The rich purposely have people on their payrolls put out ads and articles and such to make the poor concerned about the styles they advertise so they could get back the money they truly believe they wasted on paying them for a full day's work. The term "modern slavery" defined and put into practie.
See here. We work for somebody else, not necessarily our immediate boss but his boss or his boss's boss all the way up the chain is the rich person that we as that person's employees are making richer. We work all week until the paycheck comes, some of us two weeks because of that aggravating biweekly payroll system, then as soon as we make the money, we're obligated to spend it. Rent's due, phone bill's due, the lights, the (gulp) internet "service" might go out if you don't pay such and such to so and so. Lest we forget, you're not an adult owning up to your responsibilities unless you pamper your significant other and take them to the beauty parlor and to the best and most prestigious department stores and so forth. What are you left with? I'll bet you're hoping it's enough to cover your transportation and lunch at the nearest available place that sells something to eat near your job. You're scrounging for change two or three days before the next check comes around again and a bunch of other people other than yourself have that next check spent before you have it in your hand! And according to our wonderful socially engineered society, don't you dare spend it on what they say are white people's things if you're black or black people's things if you're white because Heaven or science forbid you're caught "trying" to be "that other race". It's either "beneath you" if you're white or you're "selling out" if you're black. See where this social engineering takes us? 
Of course, as society would dictate again, as a white person, I can't talk about any racial issues or the plight of a race that was enslaved and humiliated by a bunch of powdered wig wearing control freaks who died hundreds of years ago and had skin of a similar color to mine. Aren't black people still people and aren't all people supposed to be treated like people? To say you can't speak for another person because you're white and that person's black is like saying that your concerns for equality among humans should be based on your race. These rich elite have the whole divide and conquer thing down pat, I tell you. 
Don't even get me started on the ball of confusion that the elite sell to the Hispanics raised in our inner cities. They have a great portion of them seeking social acceptance from the blacks and another great portion seeking social acceptance from the whites. The Hispanics who enter countries like the United States get hit even harder with the implementation of modern slavery and often have no time to pick which team to side with. Same with the Asians. Europeans and Africans, however fall into the same trap as the blacks and whites born and raised here. 
I'm a big proponent of individuality and have been for many years. I believe that it is important to stand up for your own individually but just as important to stand up for someone else's. I encourage people to interact and share ideas of everything from culture to ideals to social issues right down to tastes in art, music and style. Hip Hop culture itself was founded on that philosophy but along come the social engineers again to shake their fingers at you and say "No, no, no! It's a black thing. It's strictly for those black people in the ghetto and you'd better not lower yourself to that violent anti-white misogynistic culture unless you're one of those people". Same deal with Punk and Gothic culture. These were also cultures based on freedom of expression. It's the media and social engineering that tells us "If you're black, you can't be Punk (even though Bad Brains are a legendary Punk band) and you can't be Goth because you're selling out to the rich white people and making fools of yourselves!" Punk Rock culture was born out of the poorest communities and Gothic culture spawned off of that. Selling out to what rich white people? So John Lydon lowered himself and Afrika Bambaataa sold out when these two fine men collaborated on the song "World Destruction"? The elite are dumbing us down and keeping us divided, I tell you. They know the power we'd have if we didn't let subtle differences between us bother us so much. They know we'd work together and become as rich and powerful as they are if we aren't distracted by much of the nonsense that divides us. That's what it's about, my people. That's what it's all about. 
Stay strong and keep kickin' dat slang!

D.J. DR3W to guest spin ElevAtioN and Red Planet Comes to Lit on Tuesday Nights
So, my people, it may be good news to you that Crowned Eagle Entertainment now has two recurring events simultaneously. We have the monthly ElevAtioN and now a weekly event called Red Planet every Tuesday night and both events are at Lit Lounge in New York City. 
For those of you who have been supporting the music from our artists, following the concert events over the years and seeing these party events develop, these party events are for you to enjoy. 
As a special treat, we have Pacha resident D.J. DR3W coming to ElevAtioN later this month joining our resident D.J. Grave. What makes DR3W one of the hottest new DJs is his own spin on the music. He brings his own remixes to the party and has packed the dance floor at Pacha for over a year and all this is coming to ElevAtioN just for you. As far as Grave goes, what more can be said? His sets are among the sickest most wicked sets going and his years of consistency have made him one of the top DJs in New York's industrial community. Each ElevAtioN is a special night and you never know what will happen. Prepare for ElevAtioN. 
In other news, Crowned Eagle Entertainment is proud to present Red Planet, a Tuesday weekly event featuring all the latest underground dance music being spun by three resident DJs, Rumble Filthskin, Illson and Speed Basser with the occasional surprise guest appearances by other talented DJs such as Chrissy Commando and Ravyn Massacre. The first couple of events in were packed with the interesting crowd that you would definitely want to party with and it's absolutely free! 
Lit Lounge, home of both ElevAtioN and Red Planet is located at 93 Second Avenue in New York's Lower East Side. 
Things are looking up for Crowned Eagle Entertainment and you, our supporters out there are to thank for it. Thank you, so much for your continued support, stay strong and keep kickin' dat slang!

May ElevAtioN Recap

So everyone was in glee from the May edition of ElevAtioN. 
We had to make some staff adjustments. Our guest hostess, EmpressRed fell ill the day of the event and I personally requested that our own Elena Bretanøva fill in. We had Kirsten Wicked at the door. I met her several times and I like her. She is just so cheery. I think having her host future events would be the move to make down the line. 
As for the show itself, I've gotten a lot of positive feedback from people on Superking Armor and Universal Truth Machine. Nate from Imbolg returned to ElevAtioN with his solo project and literally caused all ladies in the room to swoon. He has that voice that somehow touches women's souls. What can we say? 
As for our DJs, we had D.J. Grave guest DJ for a record 4th time in ElevAtioN history and he was joined by one of our original residents, D.J. 5witch.HitteR. The two have worked together numerous times in the past and the cohesiveness between them is just astounding! The party, like in April, elevated upstairs and got just as crazy as April. Notable guests in attendance included last month's co-host, No Survivors founder and frontman, Cornelius Churchill Acolyte and Jason Chase of Spy Cats. It was an extravagant event indeed. Next one's June 21st same time same location hosted by the edgy edgy badass Scarlett Venom. 🙈🙊🙉💀

My Opinion on Adam Weishaupt and Other Prehistoric Reptiles
Here's a blog entry that covers pretty much my opinion on certain fucking assholes in world history that people seem to have a big hardon for... Here goes...
Adam Weishaupt, Albert Pike, Brigham Young, Karl Marx and L Ron Hubbard were not "all that" and people who revere these people as if they were these wise gurus who actually did something for the greater good of humanity are just lost mindless cattle. They suck these people's dead maggot filled dicks to no end and all they were were a bunch of warped jerkoffs who managed to find a few gullible child-like people who were dumb enough to believe the bullshit and spread it across the globe like the fertilizer it is. 
I like Ronald Reagan, Jesus Christ, George Steinbrenner and my late father. It just works for me. If this brings about some sort of anger then let those angry people riot to stop me and I'll bet my lunch money they won't. 
It's just amazing how people flip shit over and make the good bad and the bad good. Who does that? Anyway, that's my take on things and I'm tired of SOME people's shit and THEY need to go and the pigs ain't gonna get me alive!!! 🐷🐷🐷

Hi!

April and May...

So here's what I think about the April ElevAtioN... 

Sys2matik Ovrl0ad was on point and had an astounding set. I also thought Alex Von Nihil did a fine job DJing that night. The host is a very nice and kind and gentle soul and the hostess was impressive as ever. I think it's more work to host one of my events than any other because it does not entail just sitting there and looking pretty. There's promoting beforehand both online and with actual printed flyers and such and such and such! I think Luna's come a long way and there is no question that she is a natural with presentation but we have a mutual understanding that due to the long traveling distances she has to endure, she can't do this hosting thing too often. There are talks, however, of bringing her back in November which is the anniversary month of ElevAtioN. I mean hey! Why not? She was the original hostess and she is a proud card carrying member Crowned Eagle Entertainment and is worthy of my trust as an assistant promoter to this thing. Now let's look toward May...

May ElevAtioN is going to kick major totally happy ass! We got D.J. Grave, D.J. 5witch.HitteR, Superking Armor, The Universal Truth Machine and Imbolg! I was gonna host the damn thing myself but instead, we're gonna gonna gonna reel in a NEW hostess. We at Crowned Eagle Entertainment are proud to introduce EpmressRed who has been all over TV and web interviewing sickass kickass bands for years and now she gets to introduce them to you live. Then we are also introducing an official gatekeeper who has been guarding the gates of Dungeon X for quite some time and now we have her too. She's worked with Vampirefreaks and now we have her. She, of course is Kirsten Wicked. We're in for a good event. Hope to see you there! 😸💀😻 

I'm M.C. Too Tall!!! 

...and if you leave gifts I don't want at my house like those dirty cheap knockoff sneakers that aren't even my size and that John's Deli hat that you've also worn yourself (shit I specifically told you not to give me), I'm gonna launch that shit at your front door. You're trying to make a fool out of me. I'm not down with the neighborhood clown that everybody makes fun of and throws hamburgers and styrofoam cups and shit at. Ya know? Who needs to get caught up in that shit? My wife's gonna spit at you when she sees you. The pigs ain't gonna get me alive!

ElevAtioN: The Super Sonic St Paddy's Edition
Yo, son! I'm all hyped about March 15th, yo! 
We got Box Of Crayons performing for our ElevAtioN event at Lucky 13 Saloon. They are a big deal and you'd be a fool to miss them. They've been making music and doing shows for over 10 years and have many albums out there. They pack the house at Connolly's in Manhattan every year on St Paddy's Day and you could see them for free two days earlier. Your neighbors and friends will be so jealous of you, unless you bring them along, of course. The more the merrier. 
Spinning as guest DJ between sets is none other than Alex Von Nihil, former resident of Velocity and current resident of the Rock 'n' Roll Girly Show. 
This band, this DJ, this whole show is a big deal that only a fool would miss because it is absolutely free! Waste no time! RSVP 
&
See you there!

You Got A Rep to Protect
I guess it's about time for another blog. 
On this one, I will cover the subject of reputation. I often converse with all who are part of the nest and I say onto them "You got a rep to protect". My blog doesn't ruin reputations. People ruin their own reputations. I'd come on here and talk about stupid things stupid people do and get a stupid voicemail from someone stupid telling me to take something down, which I have in the past only because the person's name was mentioned specifically (I have to teach myself to stop doing that) but on the flip side, there are instances when I discuss with you, my listeners and readers, the error of people's ways and still would get texts and voicemails with someone on the other end barking orders at me to get off the subject. Why? Does the shoe fit or something? If I'm so unimportant, why should certain people care what I type on here? If I type something and it magically is perceived as something that applies to you am I ruining your rep or are you ruining your rep? I changed my number, by the way. I couldn't take the stupid voicemails and texts from stupid people. I made sure the rest of the nest has my number though. I've got to stay in contact with my other Crowned Eagle people. You never know when I have to turn this operation into something violent and criminal and have to make some calls to assign my people to carry out my manifesto of madness... But we have a rep to protect so if it happens, you won't even know it's us. 
All kidding aside, persona, how you're perceived and how you want to be perceived play a big role in the entertainment world but also in life itself. In life, I don't do anything that M.C. Too Tall, the stage persona wouldn't do but there are things I wouldn't do in the streets that I may feel is absolutely necessary to do on stage. With performer and fans feeding off each other, these things happen. At the same time, it is necessary to go into character when confronted off stage. Sort of like you pump your ego, I'll pump mine. Balance is necessary though. It shows you're not a nut job that belongs in a straight jacket. 
Some have supported me in the past and are now very much against me. I think it's because my amped up persona doesn't match up with their perception of me as some quirky nerdy guy who would probably be ineffective defending himself against a punch in the face. Could be other reasons. Who knows? However, my people, those are not people I want as a support team anyway. Those who make it a point to attempt to tarnish my reputation are posers who have no real appreciation for the culture they claim to embrace. They're just looking for a platform to stand on with their fashion and be worshiped. I don't worship other people. At the end of the day, they're just people. So if these people don't want to throw me any fanfare, best believe they won't get any from me or my people unless there's a purpose behind it. 
Lies could potentially ruin someone unless they're debunked right away. There have been rumors about me from, indecent exposure to desecration to infidelity and none have caused any adverse effects on me or my brands because first, they're simply not true and secondly, my rep is solid and intact. If I was out there on a regular basis doing what these people say I'm doing while making enemies in the process, I'd be done. 
I think it comes with consistency. You must stay consistent. I'm known a fierce aggressive performer on stage who loves his fans and trashes anyone who suggests or outright says that all my hard work is subpar or lackluster. I take that as an insult not only to my work but to my fans' taste and that of the people who are down with me who helped boost me and help me keep this going. Dropping the ball and not being consistent with that could damage reputation of M.C. Too Tall. You could reinvent yourself but once you've reinvented yourself, you can't let anyone or anything, including your own actions or inactions, tear down your persona. You want to be able to walk the streets without ridicule for an existence that is morally wrong. Not popular is one thing but being the guy known for unacceptable behavior even among those deemed as social misfits is wrong. You got a rep to protect. Draw your own lines and don't cross them. Your rep depends on it... and for God's sake, don't be a poser! 
This is M.C. Too Tall.

My Phone and How Things Work in the Neighborhood

I will not call or text certain people. I only do that with people I'm friends with, people I'm doing business with and people I'm generally on good terms with. To those of you reading this that may not understand, allow me to clarify. My phone is not an outlet for you to yell at me and try to berate me through my voicemail about things on your end that have nothing to do with me or things on my end that you have no say over. You are not the big shot of the neighborhood. I am. I'm the one who wheels and deals, I'm the one with the connects and you are not. This is my world, my neighborhood, I do for my friends 'cause they're my friends and I do have a lot of friends but make no mistake, I am an underling to no one. Nobody scares me into doing things their way. I go where I want however I want to get there. Don't tell me places I know are safe aren't safe because of who might be there. I'm at a level where these small fries can't shut me down. I'm a big shot! Oh!

Operating on a Small Budget and Recruiting the Next Generation
I don't deal with big production. I don't think I even spent a collective of $2500 since 2006 between the gathering of the equipment to the recording and reproducing of the CDs to DIY merch to having merch professionally made to booking shows to advertising. $2500 is not a lot over a span of 9 years. 
My budget set aside for M.C. Too Tall, Crowned Eagle, ElevAtioN and now P.H.O. related stuff is small. Some say it is way too big because "Where has it gotten you?" It's gotten me exposure (several spots on Rew&WhO which is a true achievement, my appearance at 3 of 4 Vladapalooza events, interviews on Hardfire and Vampyre Lounge just to name a few). I've made CD and march sales when I had supplies. It brought bands the people wanted. 
Now I feel I've done enough to slow down and scale back. I've been moving in this direction since 2012. 
Scaling back while remaining relevant is in itself an art form. Being able to put your ego aside and not always be in the forefront allows new talent to come up through whatever promotion you're running. That being said, I sought out a person to front my venture into party events and my promotion overall, for example, discovered someone who was new but was creating a buzz and building a following and pitched my idea to them while building and maintaining a rapport. Maintaining a rapport does not mean putting my seal of approval on any and every last one of their actions but I can't order them what to do and what not to do on their own time. We're all individuals who don't necessarily have to agree on everything but if there's that one common ground to bring about good quality events and keep the promotion behind those events on the map and they do exactly what they're assigned to do, I see no reason to cut them off. In fact, it is protocol to defend anyone who is part of Crowned Eagle Entertainment who has shown nothing but consistent reliability and loyalty to Crowned Eagle Entertainment. 
Here's a story. Dennis Rodman was one of the NBA's best rebounders ever. As of today, he is 22nd all time. He was also known for his bizarre off-court antics and the constant changing of his hair color. When the Chicago Bulls acquired him from the San Antonio Spurs, the press rushed to get Michael Jordan's opinion on the acquisition of this outrageous persona that was about to share the court with him and he said "The man can play ball". 
Thus, no one in Crowned Eagle Entertainment is doing anything that is damaging to my reputation or even their own. I do utilize my wisdom and experience to school the newbies to the well known fact that they have a rep to protect. So that being said, I am pleased with the current staff, the current mix of rookies and veterans and it will remain the same with the exception of adding one or two new members and, of course, these new members, whoever they may be, will be female and in their 20s. That, my friends, is simply to appeal to the younger crowd which I can cover some other time. There's my explanation of why I select who I select for keeping the operation going and why I keep some on board while giving others the heave ho. 
Now stay strong and keep kickin' dat slang. I'm M.C. Too Tall.

Touching Base 1/22/15
What's good, my people? Just touching base as the title for this blog entry suggests. 
Two ElevAtioN installments in at it's new home, Lucky 13 Saloon and I can safely say we have a good spot. Sundays though are tough. We tried but it's very difficult to bring people in on a Sunday. That's usually people's rest day. However, I spoke to Rob, the sound guy and he says it's a go for one Thursday a month and so after my February break, ElevAtioN returns to Lucky 13 on March 12th with Alex Von Nihil as our DJ for the evening and the featured band will be a personal favorite of mine, Box Of Crayons. We get them before their big annual St. Patrick's Day performance at Connolly's in Manhattan. We're calling it the Super Sonic St. Paddy's Day edition and we expect some drinkers in the joint! http://www.facebook.com/events/762488973841764 
The following month is expected to be good too. The band and DJ I'm in negotiations with are kickass, I tell you! It will be hosted by ElevAtioN's original hostess, none other than the ever popular Luna Vega as it will be an annual birthday shindig for her. That will be Thursday, April 9th. I'm also in negotiations with other bands for future events as ElevAtioN continues to grow! 
In other news, my good friend D.J. Spoke and I have put together another P.H.O. song called "The Onslaught" and we have that posted on the M.C. Too Tall Soundcloud. We're working on another EP that I would like to release by summer which will include this and 5 other songs. 
Last, but not least, I heard some of you have asked about new solo material. Well the title for my first M.C. Too Tall EP will be "Kill M.C. Too Tall" followed by an album called "Aliens Must Die" in 2016 beginning a new 3 part series of albums called the Enlightenment Series. I expect to go super uber esoteric on these albums but you never know if my anger will get in the way and once again change the direction of the production. I do assure you, as I'm not getting any younger, I am trying really hard to move away from the angry lyrics and production. We shall see. 
Well, there you have it. That's what I got for you for now. Stay strong and keep kickin' dat slang! I'm M.C. Too Tall. Word.

2014 into 2015
Though I performed only 4 times all year, I am very pleased with the way 2014 turned out. 
I built up ElevAtioN to be as popular as any other local alternative party event, resurrected PHO, put together an entire PHO EP in a matter of 12 weeks and all while holding Crowned Eagle Entertainment to a higher standard. Sure, some sacrifice (unfortunately not blood) was made but the more dedicated and hard working members of the nest remain on board. Some shifting and shuffling was done with the remaining members. In addition, I am oh so very proud to take one more step toward balancing the male to female ratio among the members by adding a new female member to the nest. 
As mentioned quite a few times already, it is an important goal of mine to have approximately as many female members on board as males. Our latest acquisition is Elena Bretanøva. Elena was a dancer at some of the tri-state area's more popular nightclubs and has recently taken up dancing again at the world famous Pyramid Club and at Lit Lounge, both in New York's Lower East Side. Her debut as a member of our nest was at Lucky 13 Saloon in Brooklyn on Sunday December 14, 2014 when we moved ElevAtioN there. While we're on this groundbreaking subject, let me stress that this proud new member is not a replacement to any of the previously recruited members. Luna Vega, for example, is still working with us and still does part time promotional work for our operation and Scarlett Venom isn't going anywhere either as she is an important component to Crowned Eagle Entertainment. We basically now have a cohesive team in our nest ready to take on whatever tasks lie before us in 2015. 
What about 2015? Like all years prior it's all about investing time and funds into, of course, Crowned Eagle Entertainment. Building on our name and good reputation, having several different event brands and of course, the music! Spoke and I are currently working on a new PHO single called "Onslaught" to be part of our next EP and Scarlett and I are working on a song called "You Can't Kill Me" and some other new M.C. Too Tall music. It's way too early to set a date for the release of a new M.C. Too Tall album. I just might release a 6 song EP and call it "Kill M.C. Too Tall!!!" or an entire album called "Aliens Must Die"! Who knows where the creative flow will take me? The new year hasn't even started yet! Keep in mind, there is some never heard before backlogged C to the Z material I expect to release for download as well. We'll see, as I always say. As I stated earlier, the new year hasn't even started yet! 
I do know this however. Having been off the stage for so long, I'm itching to return and so is Scarlett Venom (who I must remind everyone is my WIFE as if there are any subscribers who actually don't know this by now). Thus after all this time promoting ElevAtioN, I decided I'm finally ready to make my debut as a performer at our own monthly event. It looks like my 2015 will begin January 11, 2015 at Lucky 13 with the January White Noise Edition of ElevAtioN featuring the return of Chaz PsyKoticZ, a guest DJ set by the incomparable D.J. Grave, Elena Bretanøva entertaining the boys and girls in the front room and on stage, yours truly with the edgy edgy BADASS D.J. Scarlett Venom! Let's Kick this year off like it's supposed to be for my ghoulish homies and ladyslaves. The dark and angry industrial fun begins 11PM Sunday January 11, 2015 at the NEW Lucky 13 Saloon 644 Sackett Street in Brooklyn just a couple of exits after the Manhattan bridge for all you Manhattanites and non-Brooklynites in general who seem to believe the cooler parties in Brooklyn are across the Williamsburg Bridge. You haven't seen real action in Brooklyn until you've come south of Atlantic Avenue. See you at Lucky 13! \m/
