Shad – He say she say

Posted in Designs with tags , , , , , on June 18, 2015 by alteredlines


I was in the car with the girls the other day listening Taylor Swift. I couldn’t take another round of speak now. (the girls will listen to that song like 20 times in a row if I let them) That song haunts my dreams! To get some reprieve I popped in  Shad’s Flying Colours. This graphic is inspired by a line from the song “He say she say”. If you’re into hip hop, I highly recommend!

I also did another one a while back for the song “Yaa I get it” Click here to check it out.

It’s not hard to tell that I’m more than a little excited to hear
2 of my top 5’s on a track together. Pale Blue Dot is an awesome song, but throw Shad into the (re)mix and what you’ve got is epic!
I’ve been listening to this track non-stop since I got it last night!
I can’t believe they released this one for free!
So go check out the track see what you think. As Always, go support if you like it. Don’t forget, if you click one of the “like” buttons at the bottom of this post, you can share it on facebook, twitter, etc. Go Support!

Saudade – Mr. J Medeiros

Posted in Music with tags , , , , on June 12, 2011 by alteredlines

This is an amazing record!
If you haven’t heard of Mr. J Medeiros
I highly suggest you check him out. This isn’t a vegitarian album, it’s full of meat. Mr. J is one of those artists that once you get a taste, you’ll want to gobble up his whole catalog. I’m still chewing on the album, but once digested I’m sure you’ll see some designs inspired by saudade. You can listen to the whole disc below. Go support! Share it, buy it, shout about it from the rooftops! Whatever works for you, spread the word!

We got Idols, trifle shifting into idle,
Desires demand we shift to control
Punishing the clutch to hold the situation,
Placed as the judge and the jury,
Surely the X-rays will say
that I’m without broken bones.
I’ve strayed from home,
Posting up posters on poles,
reading that I’m missing the point.
It’s about me, can’t see cuz
I’m rolling on these logs,
Hog the spotlight,
But you flip it, it’s bright
and exposes the picture I’m in,
So take the snapshot,
Why am I gonna blow up the spot,
It’s not about the spare change in my pocket,
Gotta rock it, Take out the Key,
Unlock it,
And actually make some change happen.
Don’t get trapped in imprisoned minds,
Rhymes timed to Roman lines…
Do not conform to the world view,
we gotta see through, TRANSFORM!
Confront the norm view, Renew ya mind,
And change like altered lines.

Word junction, what’s your function?
Are you used to build up or destroy?
Are your intentions to tear them down?
And if ripped to the ground is your inclination,
Then what is the motivation?

If I breathed air through lips to grow (that’s inflation)
What would your mental dictation tell you?
Would it be directed towards cessation
Or flow towards regeneration?
Does pushing others buttons ease the depression?
I mean these are just questions and who knows…
They could be internally based,
And often times we find it easier to place
Another person’s face on the one
Staring back at us from the mirror.
So spray some windex on the surface
Or maybe somethin’ with a little abrasion
If slave to the grind is where we been stayin’,
I’m just sayin’ dig deeper and remove the mask,
Cast off the disguise… WHAT GUISE?
Are you surprised that we been lying to ourselves?

We, myself and I
