I first heard about this guy a stretch back when RyogaVee
was going on about him like he was the coming of the Messiah. Not too long after that Brand
had me over and played me some of his stuff. It's good but not so much to my tastes. I'd kinda liken it to country music in only the sense that I do kinda enjoy it but I'd never want to necessarily own it; that and this guy's stuff doesn't put me to sleep like that cowboy drawl.
With the possible exception of Dr. Demento and Weird Al, I don't think my geekdom lends itself well to a musical format.
Purely on impulse I wanted to see if he had any downloadable stuff I could find and hit up 1 of my favorite 3 search engines. Actually, had several screens worth of links pop up...but unfortunately most of them were dead. All that was available were these:ten year oldFett's VetteI Want CandyratzORC14_Chris_McGee_-_DreamScapseOtt-Gil_22_Chris-McCreary-remrks_UPenn_10-27-01McCreary-Chris_23_Labyrinths_Frequency_2004
I'm not too sure about those last 3...
Here's the blurb that Wikipedia.org has on him: Clicky!Quirk:
I'm not sure if it's a thing with the artist or just the guy that wrote the Wikipedia entry but his rapper
name isn't capitalized anywhere...but they do capitalize his actual given one.Fortune favors the wonky:
Admittedly, I setup this post before I even read the Wikipedia entry. I'm glad I did read it because there's this lil' bit at the end that works out quite nicely. I quote: Prior to the Transformers (2007) screening, on June 3rd, 2007 at WOW Hall in Eugene, Oregon, mc chris announced that his albums would no longer be available for purchase on major markets, such as iTunes. He went on to say, "Pirate that shit," encouraging his fans to pirate, burn, or download his music and give it to their friends to help spread mc chris' popularity, in hopes to increase future record sales and popularity of the nerdcore genre.
Not that I got a problem with doing this kinda thing, clearly as I have a community for that very purpose, but it's nice to know that mc chris actually encourages this sorta thing.
