WarRock and our Ninth Guest!


Hello War Rocketeers (I’m still working on what to call you guys). Euge here. If you haven’t listened to our newest Episode, I’ve announced a new music project and website for my raps and swears. But seriously, AdamWarRock.com is now up and running, and while I’m getting the concept album written, recorded, produced, and mastered (release sometime in 2010, DJ producer announcement is coming within the next week, hopefully), I’ll be posting up tracks, both old and new and sorta-new, to the site on a regular basis. So check it out, and please, if you want to join in on the fun, email adamwarrockmixtape_at_gmail.com, beats, rhymes, or life all accepted. Hopefully by the end of next week, I’ll have over an album’s worth of tracks posted up there. I write and record A LOT, so stay tuned to the site.

But enough of that. For our NINTH episode, we have with us special guest Tom Peyer, writer of many titles, including Hourman, Legion of Super-Heroes, and of course, Stephen Colbert’s Tek Jansen.  We’ll be recording with Tom this Friday, the 16th, so be sure to email or twitter us your questions, as we roll along with the show!

Also, be sure to check out Awesomed By Comics latest diss track, sorta, to us in Episode 63 at this link. I’m preparing something special for them in response. Not sure when I’ll have it done though. PREPARE YOURSELVES EVIE AND AARON.

Podcasters Act Like They Don’t Know

Hollywood Boulevard

Ahem. Euge here….So let me explain. You all know how much of a hip hop head I am. Sometime in late high school, early college I began rapping at parties as mostly a goof. As college went on, I put together a home studio and recorded some demos and began performing live shows. And then after a long hiatus, I recently started working with some producers to put out some proper music in the form of a hip hop album that is forthcoming.

I was joking with Sims online that I was going to make a “D.O.A. (Death of Auto-tune)” like song about War Rocket Ajax. And this weekend, while I was recording some other tracks and had the equipment set up, I chopped up the instrumental and then wrote out a street anthem to the D.O.A. beat. And after blowing up Sims’s inbox, he convinced me to post this. So here it is.

(Track) or listen:

I’ve already been told by Evie of Awesomed by Comics that the beef is on. So let this also be a challenge to any comics blog/podcast out there that wants to start rap beef with the War Rocket Ajax crew. I will answer, and I have the second instrumental loaded in the chamber. That goes for you too, Jeph Loeb.

Otherwise, all in good fun. HOVA.
