This is, quite frankly, the funniest thing I’ve seen in a while. The Official Ninja Homepage: Real Ultimate Power. Props to dogg for the link.

One summer, a long while back while I was working at Rounder, I had the pleasure of cataloging an endless sea of CDs in a disgusting, dirty warehouse that happened to be directly underneath Fort Apache — the place where some really outstanding music has been recorded. Anyhow, I slogged through the most monotonous work I’ve ever done while listening to the muffled, vocal-less, kick-ass sounds of this album while it was being recorded—at the time never knowing exactly who it was up there. Some time later, a co-worker put a CD on the overhead stereo and I immediately recognized it (this time with vocals) as my summertime companion soundtrack. I’m reminded of this since I just dug this gem out and played it again for the first time in a while. Damn it is a good record.
I’ve acknowledged the fact that I use fresh, cracked pepper on just about everything.
