Here’s something for the geeks. Want to be like Michael Bolton of Office Space, but just can’t get into rap? I recommend this album. Whether you realize it or not, you know who Del the Funky Homosapien (alternate spelling “tha funkee”) is. Since you’re a geek, I know you’ve played Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3. Remember skating to this song about personal hygiene? That’s Del. Your geekiness also reveals that you have at least tried to like the band Gorillaz despite the fact their music isn’t particularly notable. Who can resist a band that only exists in animation? Their most recognizable song is
Clint Eastwood, featuring Del. You should give one of his albums a listen, as he raps mainly about playing videogames and/or getting high.
Deltron 3030, the album recommended above, is a space opera about a former mechsoldier who battles the powers that control the galaxy. I mean, come on. It’s great stuff, but you don’t want to get caught rocking out to it. “Look at that geek listening to rap music — what a poser. Wait a minute, did I just hear the word ‘plasteel’?”. So close the blinds, crank the speakers, and enjoy it before anyone notices.
