Song to close out the weekend: "Secret Wars" by the Last Emperor
One of these years I'll fulfill a lifelong dream and attend the geek Mecca (and increasingly relevant) San Diego Comic-Con. Until then, I'll just have to live vicariously through online reports. And I'll listen to the Last Emperor's "Secret Wars", where he pits comic book characters against some of 1999's hottest backpack rappers (and does some hilarious impersonations of them).
This is another one of those songs that takes me back to my DJ days. I have the 12" single (see, this was back in those dark days when one had no choice but to purchase physical copies of music), but I don't believe I ever worked it into one of my sets. But it was fun to just put the headphones on and listen to it. Indie hip-hop and comic books. It doesn't get much geekier than that.
