I don't know if anyone's seen Dave Chapelle's Bloc Party, but if you haven't, you owe yourself to see this concert masterpiece. I watched it during the recaps tonight, and fell in love with it all over again. In the film, Dave goes to Bed-Stuy in NYC, armed with some of the greatest talents in hip-hop today (Mos Def, The Roots, THE GODDAMN FUGEES, etc.), and a group of people from Dayton, Ohio, and fucking rocks out one aftenoon in September 2005. It's funny, it's heartwarming, and the music is better than incredible. If you have even a passing interest in hip-hop, or Dave Chapelle, please, PLEASE, see this movie. You won't be dissapointed.

Speaking of concert movies, it's time to move onto the recaps! Today, we've got Destructoid helmets, tattoos, and created stages, oh my! Also, there's the return of everyone's favorite failure, and the first crop of new Monthly Musings.

LET'S DO THIS CBLOOOOOOOOOOG RECAPS!!!

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Schooled

Gather round boys and girls! School may be back in session, but you should still have a bit of time left to skirt your responsibilities and write some damn blogs!

In the true spirit of the classroom, this month’s Bloggers Wanted prompt is all about “things that video games have taught you.” Whether you want to write about a specific skillset you’ve acquired, love (or hate…) for a genre, game design, music composition, edutainment games, general life lessons, or even delve into more abstract territory…. As long as you’ve learned something, even if you didn’t realize it at the time, I want to fucking hear about it!

The world is your goddamn oyster here! All you have to do is slap some words together and format the title as “Schooled: [your blog title here].” It’s that fucking easy, folks! If your blog is up to snuff, it might even get promoted to the Front Page!

Don’t hold out on me, people! I read everything over in the Cblogs. I’ll know if you’re playing hooky this month, and I will look at you with sad puppy eyes if you let me down.
