Video + Audio: Has-Lo "Utero"

From Mello Music Group:

Video + Audio: Has-Lo "Utero"

Phiilly MC/Producer Has-Lo's debut MMG album, In Case I Don't Make It, can be ordered today as an exclusive itunes pre-release (the cd release is March 29th).  The critically acclaimed album is featured this month in XXL Mag "Chairman's Choice".  To celebrate, we present the official Utero Video & Audio Mp3. 
The album is a dark blend of haunting imagery and edgy, raw lyricism that takes you through a journey, song by song, of a man at the tipping point: somewhere between survival and suicidal.  Utero is the perfect jump off: gritty and stirring.  Has-Lo pens:

"Take a stroll in my subconscious
Where foul thoughts crumble the walls that block it
Mentally I’m crooked and cracked
White man say it’s ‘hood in me, could it be that?"
The video, directed by Antonio Battle, graphically depicts Has-Lo's lucid dream as he stomps through the scene of his verse.
Enjoy the video & free download: feel free to post and share.

Damon Brown's Latest Update for March 2011

Damon Brown's Latest Update for March 2011


I updated the best-selling iPad guide for the new (and improved) iPad 2. Check out the description below.

Damon Brown's Simple Guide to the iPad:
Make the most of your iPad! Veteran tech author Damon Brown gives all you need to have fun with Apple's popular device, from music and word processing to photos and video games. The down-to-earth tone cuts through all the tech jargon, while the detailed information will get novices and techies alike up and running. Both affordable and thorough, the book will make you an expert in an hour or two.
Price: $1.99!

Click on the link to download it through Amazon and read them through the Kindle device or the free Kindle app on the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Android device, PC or Mac. 

My tech and media blogging now has an official column: CBS Interactive Gadget Watch! <>

Every day I discuss the latest news in the mobile tech world, whether it be  how the iPad's competition measures up, why Borders is suddenly pushing digital books more than ever, or what Netflix is doing to keep loyal customers. The topics are broad and we usually have a great discussion in the comments.

You can follow it directly at <>, but I also post the latest articles on my Twitter at <> and on Facebook at <>

You can also catch me at American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA) conference next month in Manhattan! I will be doing two panels: One on the 21st Century Office (as a contributor) and another on Writing Idiot's and Dummies Guides (as a moderator). 

The organization was super supportive when I first started writing years ago, enough so that I became an active member and, as of last year, joined the board of directors. The conference is definitely worth checking out if you have any interest in being a professional non-fiction writer. If you can't attend, we also will be doing plenty of live tweeting during the conference using hashtag #asja2011 on Twitter.

The ASJA conference will be April 29th - May 1st at the Roosevelt Hotel, Manhattan. Early registration ends on March 25th. You can find more info at  

Thanks for your support and I look forward to connecting with you soon both online and in person.
