Dear Lord, Johnny Depp as The Riddler? It boggles the mind…

Johnny Depp has reportedly been approached to play a villain in the next Batman movie.

The actor is wanted to portray The Riddler in the follow-up to The Dark Knight, according to studio bosses.

A source said: “Johnny would be amazing as The Riddler. The studio knew they needed someone who could match or even top the late actor Heath Ledger’s performance as The Joker in the most recent film The Dark Knight, and think Johnny has the potential to do so.”

The Riddler is a manic super-villain who baffles Batman with his cryptic criminal clues

…The Riddler was played by Jim Carrey in the 1995 movie Batman Forever.

Studio bosses are also said to be keen to sign up Philip Seymour Hoffman to play The Penguin in the new movie.

They reportedly believe the Oscar-winning star would be the right choice to play the aristocratic, intelligent and terrifying villain. [Source]

Of course, it’s only a rumour, but if true, I cannot imagine how unreal it will be. Not to mention Philip Seymour Hoffman as The Penguin? Jeeeeesus!

Peace, Love & Batman

We’re all ears for new music here @ PinBoard. That’s probably one of the main reasons we started this blog. I like hearing new artists/bands; I love hearing those who enjoy experimenting and those who do what they do well. So when Michelle over at Audible Treats sent me the press release for DOOMTREE and after I heard their joint “Game Over” I got pretty interested…

The five rappers and four producers that make up the Doomtree crew have been powering through the underground community since their inception, with critically acclaimed releases from their home-grown label, including their own False Hopes series of EPs, and the release of P.O.S.’s Ipecac Neat (named “Best Album of the Year” by The Star Tribune). Since meeting in junior high, they’ve all lived and worked together, helping to create the dynamic and tireless work ethic they have developed as a group. Over the past five years, Doomtree has gained momentum as one of the best hip-hop collectives in the Midwest. 

The self-titled album, DOOMTREE, is a landmark for the group and a self-proclaimed beast. With 21 tracks, not only does the record build the momentum of the crew, but it also highlights their talents as solo artists. As Doomtree says, “The anthems are victorious, the storysongs are full of dream and intrigue, and the bangers reset pacemakers.”

DOOMTREE – “Game Over”

I think it’s cool?! The beat is definitely hot and I like their style a lot.

…What you thinkin?

If you like what you’ve heard/seen/read, then head over to their Myspace and/or their Official Site and show them some love.

Peace, Love & DOOMTREE

I’m a sucka for anything Disney. If you ain’t, you have no soul. Today I watched The Lion King for the first time in about 10 years and now I’m eyeing up Aladdin! Good times.

Anyways, Disney just released this mini-trailer for their new musical movie “Princess & The Frog”. The film is set in New Orleans in the 1920’s and marks the first time the company has used a black princess. The film looks hella cute and funny. It’s about time Disney made one of their classic cartoon/musical features. I love the Pixar/CGI stuff, but this type of classic style is…classic!

LOL That bug is genius. And yet again, Disney has created another hot princess!

Peace, Love & Disney

Remember when Mickey held that competition for peeps to send in their ideas/concepts of what his next leaks should be about? Well, Mickey Factz has some pretty dope fans coz they came up with some pretty cool ideas. Here are the winning two…

From Kyle Connaro:

Tell the story from the point of view of a record (Vinyl) trying to get love in the huge era of CD’s (90’s) and how difficult it is for you to do so and the struggles of being quality but overlooked. Then transition to the same concept with CD’s and mp3s and downloads…

From Ricardo Santiago:

I would like the next concept to be …. You as a dollar bill and what goes on as you pass hands… From drug dealers all the way to the big dogs in congress. Just an Idea…

Mickey Factz – “Going No Where” (Produced By Precize)

Both concepts on one track. Dope ass concepts and what Mickey Factz does with them is beyond anything I could have thought of. This dudes talents seem to have no limits < Real talk.

Update: Factz also sent over the “Incredible” instrumenal, you know, the one that everyone, except Lil’ Wayne (“hint, hint” says Mickey!) has jumped on. I say we get some UK MC’s on it ASAP!

More Bullsh*t From Fox News by Speeakz

I was cruising the blogs and fell upon this. Even though it’s more of the same crap Fox Faux News continuing to broadcast, it’s still nonetheless, a must watch! This time they go after Luda for supporting Obama and certain things he’s said in his “Politics (Obama Is Here)” tune…

Oh, how dope is it that they popped up the 2dopeboyzlink on there too? Hahaha! Good work boyz!

Part 1

Part 2

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I really don’t know how peeps in the US actually stand this type of sh*t and what’s more, I can’t believe in this day and age (where information is so EASILY available) people still buy into this rubbish? Crazy. Politics in the US seems to be getting extremely heated and very personal these days, I just hope it doesn’t explode into something nasty.

Peace, Love & Faux News
