Listener Jemal emailed and asked me if I would do a Lumberjanes song. Being that I had read Lumberjanes, and that it’s a really good comic, I was like, “Sure!” See? It’s that easy to have your dreams come true.

It’s weird, I’ve had such a busy summer with work, touring, moving and getting settled into a new city – I’ve fallen insanely behind on a lot of comics (except X-Men, still caught up with that. Mystique? Really, Chuck?). So in a weird way, I’ve found it easier to follow non-big-Two books that have their own contained stories. Things like Lumberjanes, where you can follow a single title that has a vision by one creative team and isn’t bogged down by decades of canon to follow.

Anyway, that’s a tangent. The point is that if you like Gravity Falls and summer camp scary stories and good comics, you should definitely read Lumberjanes, from Boom by Noelle Stevenson and Grace Ellis (art by Brooke Allen). It’s a great title, and one that you can hand to even younger readers and feel good about. For more information, check out Boom’s page on the comic.

Also, this Saturday I’ll be at Bombay’s in Ventura, CA performing at the official Central Coast Comic Con after party. Doors at 9m $5 donation to get in! More info here. Next week, Rose City Comic Con.

alg-jerry-lewis-jpgOn October 18, I’ll be doing a 24 Hour Rap-A-Thon! 24 hours of me writing, recording and posting as many songs as I can. Pledge a per-song (optional cap) or lump sum donation by emailing rapathon@gmail.com. A portion of proceeds will go to benefit RAINN.org, to fight sexual assault. Last time I did this, I made sixteen songs in a day. Can I beat it?

24 Hour Rap-A-Thon Coming! 10/18

Announcing The 24 Hour Rap-A-Thon
October 18, 2014
With proceeds going to adamwarrock.com & RAINN

Email rapathon@gmail.com today and pledge! 

I’m very excited to announce the second Adam WarRock 24 Rap-A-Thon! I could not be more honored to be doing this Rap-A-Thon to benefit not only adamwarrock.com, but also to benefit RAINN, the nation’s largest anti-sexual assault organization.

It’s always been my hope that this site and everything that happens on it would be for some kind of good, and after the success of last the Rap-A-Thon where your donations helped raise thousands of dollars to replace stolen equipment, as well as benefit RAINN – I wanted to try it again, this time in a bit of a more official capacity. So from the get-go, I will be raising money not only to, uh, live but also to benefit RAINN directly!

How does the Rap-A-Thon work? 

INSTRUCTIONS

Last year, I made 16 songs in a 24 hour period. That’s right. SIXTEEN. That’s me finding a beat, writing the song, recording it, processing it and posting it live. We raised almost $8,000.00 last time, and all the excess proceeds raised after replacing my stolen equipment was donated directly to RAINN, to a cause that I feel pretty strongly about.

Email rapathon@gmail.com today and pledge! 

Did you know…

  • Every 2 minutes, somewhere in America, someone is sexually assaulted.
  • 1 in 6 U.S. women are victims of sexual assault, and 1 in 33 men.
  • About 44% of rape victims are under age 18, and 80% are under age 30.
  • College-aged women are 4 times more likely to be the victim of sexual assault.
  • 6 out of every 10 sexual assaults are not reported to the police.
  • About 2/3 of all rapes are committed by someone who is known to the victim.

This, in addition to the pervasive rape culture that continually shows up in comics, in television, in movies — all the while having people incredibly close to me, loved ones who are survivors of sexual abuse and assault.

I wanted to do another Rap-A-Thon, and this time, I wanted to do something that meant something more than just buying a new computer. So hopefully you’ll pledge and be here on October 18 to see if I can break my last record of sixteen songs in 24 hours, and let’s try to do some good in the process.

Email rapathon@gmail.com today and pledge!

“Shaun” [free tunes]

Beat used: Wale “Walk N Live”

Shaun-Of-The-Dead-Cheers

I saw Shaun of the Dead when I was in law school with my friend Sarah. We just happened to be walking through a mall that had an advance screening of it. We decided to watch it without knowing hardly anything about it, because we were bored, and because hey, zombies. We didn’t realize we were about to see what would become one of my favorite movies of all time, by the creative team that time and time again would make some of my favorite movies and/or TV shows. It only bums me out more that Edgar Wright won’t be making Ant Man.

Anyway, if you haven’t seen Shaun of the Dead, uh, what’s wrong with you? Go see it. Now. And The World’s End. And Hot Fuzz. And Spaced. etc.

FrontalotCoverAlt

Hey guys, today MC Frontalot’s new album Question Bedtime is out, and I am on it, along with other amazing guests like Jean Grae, Open Mike Eagle, Sole, The Protomen, Marian Call, John Roderick, Busdriver, mc chris, and comedians like Kyle Kinane, Paul F. Tompkins, and more! It’s a sort of children’s bedtime stories album, and I’m on the track “I Can See” with Sole and Front, rapping about The Emperor’s New Clothes. You should go check it out, and buy it now!

My friend  Mikey sent me this song, and I was like, “Well now I have to make a Golden Girls song.” So I did. And here it is.

Have you ever actually watched Golden Girls? It’s actually an amazing show, and if you love TV, you should check out some older episodes. You could learn a thing or two about friendships from those old ladies.

I’m not doing shows for a bit. Taking some time off. I also am reordering my Guardians of the Galaxy t-shirts, for the two cons I’m doing in September. So hopefully will post those up for ordering soon.

Otherwise, stay cool, pals and confidantes.

“Armor” [free tunes]

ARMOR COVERAdam WarRock “Armor” (Download MP3)
Beat used: Lorde “Team”

I’ve been a bit busy, but still got some free music to you!

I’ve always had this weird fascination with Armor, from the X-Men. Maybe it’s because her name is so obvious, and power is so sort of stupid – and yet she still manages to be a pretty awesome character. Maybe it’s because she’s a part of one of the greatest X-Men panels of all time:

tumblr_lkfs3l6liW1qct773o1_500There’s something so incredibly obvious about a hero named Armor, whose power is armor, and the ensuing metaphor that comes with it. But sometimes, simplicity is the best. I love Hisako, and there’s not much else to it. Hope you enjoy the song.

I’m taking a break from my travels and touring for a while. The next shows I have on the horizon are at Central Coast Comic Con and Rose City Comic Con in September, but for now, just sit back, enjoy the music, and maybe buy some albums while you’re at it. Or not.

If you want one of the new tshirts, shoot me an email. I’m holding on to the last inventory for future shows for now until I reorder them; but I’m not opposed to sending out a few if someone wants one.
