This blogger is on vacation, roaming about in the city shown above. From now until next Sunday, DarnellColes (the official 206UP.COM Office Robot) will be handling posting duties. Keep checking the blog for updates every couple of days, and don’t give Darnell too hard a time, he’s just a damn robot!


VIDEO: “Steve Jobz” – Benadrill & Lake House Ent.

Tip of the hat to Lake House Entertainment‘s RoofDogg who passed along the crew’s latest video, “Steve Jobz”, a tribute to the man of the song’s title and a lament over the loss of the LHE’s famed Lake Washington home — damn you, reverse mortages! Here’s hoping the idiosyncratic collective finds some new digs soon.


VIDEO: “Nothing’s Gonna Change” – Sam Lachow & Raz (feat. B Skeez)

At first glance Sam Lachow and Raz seem like an odd pair for a collaboration. Cast expectations aside, however, for their new track, “Nothing’s Gonna Change,” the first drop from the duo’s upcoming 5 Good Reasons EP (September 17). Everything works here, from the live instrumentation to the chemistry between the two MCs.

206UP.COM has a Facebook presence now. In addition to the Twitter and RSS feeds, you can also get your daily dose of all things Seattle hip-hop injected intravenously into your Facebook feed. Lots of feeds, I know, but if you’re already looking at this website then presumably you can’t get enough of that Town goodness. Please go “Like” it by clicking here or on the little button on the right side of the website. You know what it is.

A little about the photo: If you do a Google image search for “206up” the above picture is the first totally unrelated image that appears. I thought that was really dope so I went ahead and used the photo without the photographer’s permission. Hopefully that’s cool with him. His name is Apolinar Fonseca and he’s based in Cali. Dude has a lot of cool shots over at this blog (here) so please pay a visit.

Someday soon 206UP.COM will have its own legitimate branding, but until that day I’m’a have to keep jacking images and banners from folks who are far more talented artists than myself. Here’s to open source computing in the cloud.
