    Dart Against Humanity Ep. 75: Abare

    In the final episode of Season 4, I discuss the past 10 years of my career and where my path crossed with FWMJ. Abare is a term dealing with the damage you can do in trades or exchanges in fighting games that allow you to survive or come out on top even when you're at a disadvantage. I talk about how I managed to get to where I am in my career and what the future holds for Dart Against Humanity going forward.

    Dart Against Humanity Ep. 74: Okizeme

    Dart Against Humanity Ep. 74: Okizeme

    On this edition of Dart Against Humanity, I discuss the ugly events surrounding the shoddy handling of reporting the sudden passing of Kobe Bryant & his daughter Gigi this past Sunday. I was so disgusted with the media and humanity as a whole I fell back from real time social media (especially Twitter) for 3 days. I discuss my thoughts on the past week & my personal process dealing with his death and the overwhelming wave of grief consuming my present spaces. Rest in eternal peace to everyone who lost their lives on Sunday. Amen.

    Dart Against Humanity Ep. 73: American Dart

    Dart Against Humanity Ep. 73: American Dart

    The discussion today is about cult films, how that designation has changed over time and how easy or hard it is for a film to earn that title in the era of Real Time Social Media with all of the different streaming portals both legitimate and of the pirate variety. I even list quite a few cult classics and highly slept on films from the past 25 or so years in the process...

    Dart Against Humanity Ep. 72: The Learning Pt. 2

    Dart returned from MIT after seeing Harry Allen x Rob Swift's Harbanger turntable septet/orchestra with a fresh perspective on the value of Hip Hop culture. He talks about the transformative nature of Hip Hop culture and how art evolves over time due to influence while providing examples from his own life experiences. Next Friday will be about a brand new subject entirely.

    Dart Against Humanity Ep. 71: The Learning

    Dart Against Humanity Ep. 71: The Learning

    Last night, I went to MIT to witness a lecture between legendary journalist/author Harry Allen & legendary DJ/turntablist Rob Swift. I had known both for quite a while but the subject matter of the lecture really resonated with me on many levels as a creative who isn't constantly aspiring to be better and reach the many lofty goals I have for myself which I might never reach. This podcast is about self discovery, self expression & reminding myself to enjoy the process/journey rather than the fact I'm not where I want to be yet. This is The Learning.

    Dart Against Humanity Ep. 70: 2020 Vision

    Dart Against Humanity Ep. 70: 2020 Vision

    On the first episode of Dart Against Humanity recorded in 2020, Dart discusses his research done for articles about 1985 & 1990, including how & why it took so long for the first Rap song to hit #1 on Billboard's Hot 100, MC Hammer's unique single roll out for his 1990 LP "Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em", how Bell Biv DeVoe's 1990 single & LP "Poison" changed the dynamic of the Pop charts plus the odd case of the ascent of Jane Child's "Don't Wanna Fall In Love" on the Hot 100 vs. Lisa Stansfield's "All Around The World" which was released as a single in North America in January 1990 but blew up on the Black music charts. Also, Dart discusses his initial findings regarding Run DMC's sophomore album "King Of Rock" which was released in January 1985.

Solid Show

In a world of people playing journalist as an excuse to social climb and rub elbows with the “powerful” it’s nice to hear somebody speaking about something they’re passionate about consistently and somebody who knows how to RESEARCH. Keep it up Dart ✊🏾

poopoooou ,

Bad bad bad bad

Ignorant man he is not a good host or person

Horse Racing is legal again! ,

Boston music

Dart is a great tour guide of a wide range of music nationally but I listen because of how he runs through Boston’s place in music history. He covers everything from radio stations to charts to record stores and producers and talent. Good stuff.
