TechCab Confessions: MC Frontalot

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the May 28th, 2009

For our third installment of TechCab Confessions we have uber nerdcore rapper (the one who coined the term!) MC Frontalot take the hot seat, err, back seat of the taxi. For those of you joining us in medias res, GETV’s TechCab series takes geeks for a ride while they confess their technological sins to a live streaming camera for all the world to see. In this episode, we are honored to have Front — as he’s known to his fans — take a break from performing at SXSW and promoting his latest album Final Boss to tell us a whopper of a story for which, we are happy to say, the statute of limitations has TOTALLY and COMPLETELY expired. A great hacker caper of yore, involving the inaugural Lillith Fair, the Levi’s website and an amateur musician’s online contest — all this, and someone ended up in jail after all! We’ll just leave that to the great nerdcore rapper and elegant hacker to tell you the rest.

    Your algorithm was so good that this is the first I've heard of essence.

    The driver / interviewer needs to be a bit more over-the-top enthusiastic and interrupt the speakers just a bit more.

    Can we get the driver to backup off the mic? Everytime se wails, the sounds goes nuts.

    Christ, my ears. It's not a pleasant experience to watch this, because of the sound.

    Please position the mic differently so the driver's shrieks of laughter don't distort every couple of seconds. Or get a limiter/compressor involved, with someone knowledgeable involved. Techies should be embarrassed to have failed so massively on the sound tech.

    Haha, awesome story! Front is straight up gangstah, you don't even know, son!
