Pretty chill mixture in here — even if a tad on the ambiguous side. But it all correllates with how we’ve been rolling over the past month or so. Give it a listen. We hope you enjoy!

On March 19th the verbal attacks will take a backseat to a pay-per-view sword fight between the two.  MTV is said to be reproducing the sword fight on its hit show Celebrity Death Match.

A marijuana bust along the U.S. – Mexico border revealed 30 pounds of the drug stuffed into framed pictures of “Jesus Christ” the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency said Wednesday.  When asked what tipped them off Authorities said the 22 year old woman had thought they were pictures of Jesus Christ but they were actually pictures of Jerry Garcia.  A Dead giveaway.

DC Podcast Vol. XI

Instead of going on about what a chill and decent podcast we have this time around, I’m just gonna say… ya know… whatever. It’s your decision if you wanna jam on it.

Seriously, it’s up to you. I understand that some people just aren’t that into music. They’d rather sit in silence and play solitaire. Hey, ya know, that’s your thing. Whatever you’re into, we respect your decision.

Dimitri From Paris Is Our Decent Bastard of the Week

You’re in a lounge, all dressed up, scoping out chicks, fancy beverage in your hand — ya know, the usual. Everyone inside looks classy, but deep down they like to party. Maybe snort a few rails and dance like motherfuckers. Indeed, the pent up lounge is waiting to erupt, but there’s one thing missing: bad-ass lounge/disco/dance music. That’s when Dimitri from Paris busts in, starts an all night groove-a-thon, and ordains himself as Decent Communty’s Decent Bastard of the Week.

Dimitri from Paris, believe it or not, is not from Paris. Born in Istanbul, with parents from Greece, Dimitri from Paris is internationally hailed as the master of the mix tape. His musical influences are rooted in 1970s funk and disco sounds, which he then fuses with electro and block party hip hop from the 80s.

Dimitri from Paris has followed a glamorous musical path by recording soundtracks and advertising campaigns for fashion houses Chanel, Jean-Paul Gautier and Yves Saint Laurent and remixing hundreds of artists as diverse as Bjork, The Cardigans, and James Brown.

Primarily, however, Dimitri from Paris is a groove instigator. And compiling groove after groove, upon groove, upon groove, he brings absurd, upbeat jives that ooze with flow. We could rant on about what a great DJ Dimitri from Paris is — but the best way is to listen to him do his thing. Please click below and dance your private parts off.

Interesting eBay T-Shirts

Would you buy this shirt for 29 grand?

Damn. There’s some serious shit on eBay. You can find pretty much anything you want on that piece, and decent t-shirts are no exception. Let’s examine a few t-shirts The Commuity deems “the real deal”:

Transcelestians: This badboy is quite possibly the most rare Star Wars collectible on any planet. A t-shirt made for crew when filming began for A New Hope, aka Star Wars aka Transcelestians (the working title). This is such obscure Star Wars trivia that when this working title is googled, there are no results…seriously, try it. It was once owned by Ben Burtt, the four time Academy Award winning sound technician who got Darth breathing heavy. Price: $29,000

Beatles Butcher: The true origins of this relic are unknown. Its controversial artwork is derived from the infamous Beatles Butcher album that was released in 1966 and subsequently pulled from shelves because of widespread complaints. The original banned albums are worth a small fortune and this tee is arguably even more scarce. Is it an extremely rare record store promo?  Or one of the earliest examples of bootlegging? Either way it’s a vintage artifact. Price: $20,000

Duran Duran Concert Cutoff T: This 1984 piece is from Duran Duran’s first stadium tour of the United States. A film crew led by director Russell Mulcahy followed the band closely during this tour, leading to the documentary film Sing Blue Silver and the accompanying concert film Arena. Just before making their stadium rounds, the band appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine and won two Grammy awards. This t-shirt is one of the foremost relics of a special time in Duran Duran’s history. (And it’s a cutoff!) Price: $11

Allman Bros/The Band/Grateful Dead Summer Jam: This beauty is my second favorite shirt on the list (behind the Duran Duran T). Quite the Summer jam going down at Watkins Glenn in 1973! A heady time for all bands, but especially The Grateful Dead, who played their tightest/cleanest jams throughout 73-74. It’s a great looking shirt and perhaps a decent deal when compared to this other Grateful Dead T. Price: $1,500

Iron Maiden, Florida ’87 — “Vice is Nice” Tour: This 3/4 sleeve baseball style t-shirt is pretty freakin heavy. As in, heavy metal! Iron Maiden fans are known to hoard their concert t’s — but this rare find documenting their ’87 run through the Sunshine State is a true gem. Think about it — it’s 1987 and you’re in Florida on the “Vice is Nice” tour with Iron Maiden. It gets no better. Price: $950

Who is the Chillest Member of Phish?

Bro. Why do questions have to be so difficult? I’m trying to figure this shit out, but it’s kinda insane. This whole question, ya know? I’ve been sitting here for the past three hours going back and forth in my head. Page is fuckin chill, ya know? But Mike is mellow as shit too! The way he just stands there and bobs his head sometimes? That’s laid back. I bet it would be really chill to chill with Trey. And Fishman, man, that dude probably just lets it his shit flow — which I think is pretty chill.

Fuck man, I guess if I gotta say, it’s Page. Ya know, cause he’s just fuckin chill, bro. What do you guys think?

DC Podcast Vol. X

Wazzaaa Dece lovers! We’re ecstatic to jam out the tenth edition of our podcast. The Decent Atlanta studios recently upgraded their equipment, and the result is the most professionally produced podcast yet. It’s smoother in every regard, and you’ll really notice the enhanced sound quality.

Click here to listen to and download the Decent Community Podcast.

However, we’re happy to say that all the slick production takes a backseat to the music. The tenth volume is the most cohesive podcast to date — really capturing a chill vibe that we hope will appeal to a broad audience. It’s a little less jam-heavy than usual, but I’m willing to bet that everyone will find some goods they’re really into. Seriously, we’d really appreciate you giving this a listen. One love!
