Before the holidays arrive I wanted to forward you a note from the The Beat Within's Volume 14.48. The discusses "time" a topic that I've been thinking about as well as the we close in on another year. A Voices Behind Walls newsletter is pending a post-2010 December update with a link to the full issue of Volume 14.48 which you can also access now at the following link: http://www.thebeatwithin.org
Here is an excerpt from the Editor's Note of The Beat Within, Volume 14.48:
"Is it possible that today is already December? Can it be that nearly another full year has passed? Can this really be the 48th Editor's Note of the year? Time... What does time mean? There is a very old English phrase: "Time and tide wait for no man (or woman)." What do you think that phrase means?
So many of you who are reading this measure your lives out in "time served" - two days here, a month there, a year or two or...? Because we are older than our writers, maybe we value time more than. Like the sand in an hour glass, we can see it slipping away, never to return. When we're young, time seems endless; the future seems to stretch out like a highway whose end we cannot see. It is a time to play, a time without thought or consequences. But as we move along that highway, we begin to see that time does have an end, and that all the potholes and detours we have to take along the way do count for something - either by slowing us down or giving us lessons to learn from."
Happy Holidays to you all from Percy Carey, Michael Chavez Booth and all of us over at Day By Day Ent.

In these pages you'll find new tales of Central City's protector versus familiar villains such as the Octopus and Sand Saref; witness his undying love for Ellen Dolan, daughter of Commissioner Dolan, the only man to know his secret identity; and glimpse what might be the Spirit's fate in an uncertain future.

Recently, I was fortunate to hear about singer Nina Storey. I read up on Nina. She seemed like a sweet lady. I listened to a few of her tracks. She has an even sweeter voice. Both her demeanor and talent have garnered increasing fan following and positive press coverage.
If you can spare the brief moment, watch one of Nina's recent music videos (below). I think you'll agree this woman has some soul. Her voice is soothing.
Frankly, I'm digging her music greatly and just want you to have the same opp!
Nina will be performing at the Hotel Cafe this coming Tuesday (9/8/09). The show begins at 8pm. I'm venturing to see if she sounds this good live. I'm thinking, yes.
Have a good week.

I need to set the record straight, there's no problems between DOOM and I. I understand in the past things were said back and forth but that is the past, so if anyone approach you and ask about a war between MF DOOM and MF GRIMM
Please tell them what I just stated; if they don't believe you, just send them here to read this; that goes for anyone else in M.I.C. who people might think we're beefing. I'm on a path to become a better person, it's the only way the creator will allow me to enjoy the benefits of life. I'm about to apply for college, and attempt to get a degree in marketing, I'm also donating my time to the local zoo, because of my fascination of studying orangutans; my goal is to create a story about them and other great apes and turn it into a graphic novel. I'm looking forward to seeing how life will be in the future. I would also like to thank all of you guys for supporting me, and for the comments they're were needed. Please excuse any errors in this I'm typing from my phone, I'll edit everything later. How many of you guys heard my song "Dirg of Dolor"?. You can check it out on Youtube.com until I post it up here at "The Percy Carey Show". Feel free to think me what you think about the song. Thank you, and goodnight.

"To Be or Not To Be That Is The Question?"
"I Am who I Am"
"I yam who I yam"
(Popeye the Sailor man)
I'm working on 10 albums at the same time; it was the only thing I could do for my own selfish reasons to top my triple CD American Hunger, which consisted of 60 songs (The first and only of it's kind from a independent solo hip hop artist, and should be in the Guinness Book of World records right now), so you're talking about at least 150 songs I plan on releasing in 2009. I don't even know why I'm even telling you guys it's not like you really care. It's weird dealing with different mediums of entertainment, because no matter if it's music, television, comic books, I broke the record for it, and I still feel like that don't really mean anything to you guys; all people really care about is what type car you're driving, or how much your chain cost (slaves wore chains, only difference is you paid cash for yours, and Jacob The Jeweler didn't have to whip you in the middle of his plantation to make you keep them on). But when it's all said and done what will you be remembered for? What have you really done on this planet? Everything I said I wanted to do in the entertainment industry, people always told me it couldn't be done and don't waste my time trying, and you know what? I did it anyway. I created my first album in 24 hours before being incarcerated, and it went down as a hip hop classic. I created and recorded American Hunger in 11 days (and two hard drives crashed while recording it) and it's considered a classic as well; yeah, you might disagree and think that I'm whack, but to each his own... life goes on; I'm just trying to make up for all of the trouble I put my family through. Since I was born I've been a headache to my mother; it's wild because when she was pregnant with me the doctor's told her not to have me due to complications, but being the strong woman she is, she went through the pregnancy anyway, and almost died on the table, so I owe the lady a lot. I've been shot, went to prison and tainted my family name and honor, by giving in to my temptations of the street. It wasn't needed for me to do the things I chose to do in the past, I just wanted to do it plain and simple, and I paid for it dearly. Most of my friends are dead, no excuse me, ALL of my friends are dead, because most of the people that are still alive, I found out the hard way that they were never my friends in the first place. I helped start the careers of a lot of artist that are now successful; I taught all of them how to survive, create music, beats, create labels, distribution, how to close deals, only to have them stab me in the back; but that has happened to great men throughout history, so why would it be different for me? (I have to play my position and just act it out to the credits roll) I don't care about the majority of things in life anymore but I do have a strong desire to make sure children don't go down my past destructive path, so that's where my head is at right now; it's not a girl, a car, jewelry, friends or anything materialistic, and I'm not trying to buy my way into heaven like some of you guys reading this, my fate is my fate. I'm just selfish and I don't want kids to feel the pain I've felt. After all of the years of trouble finally I got my act together and I must admit it's a wonderful feeling to hear my parents tell me that they're both proud of me, and I'm going to continue that. With that said, welcome to the Percy Carey show, where anything can happen (and sometimes nothing at all). Thank you for not listening.
