  • Neat things that should have happened but didn't

    So I found out today that NE miners slang was actually called 'pitmatic'

    And my immediate thought was that the whole mc Pitman joke would have been about 50000 times better if he had called his album Pitmatic and made the cover like the cover of illmatic

    Anyway, that was my thought about a thing which should have happened 10+ years ago but didn't.

    This is one of my favourite posts in quite some time.
    Splendid stuff.
    To infinity - and beyond!

      Good post.

      I always regretted that Mad Magazine missed the opportunity for an Alfred E. Neuman/Illmatic cover.

        Someone with even moderate photochops could make amends for this missed opportunity, and all without any of us having to listen to pitman.

        Research for the original post did include listening to witness the pit ness again, which was considerably shitter than even my most charitable memory of it suggested

                    If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

                            hooray! Thank you! obviously the best pitman album that never was. (can it say 'pitman' instead of just 'pit' though?)

                            I actually want to hear a version of 'one time 4 your mine', by pitman. someone should tweet this shit at dan greenpeace

                            maybe vg+ should begin a subtle online psychological campaign to get Styly cee to bring pitman out of retirement in order to record a complete mining town themed cover album of illmatic. would that be a bad thing, or a good thing? I want to hear pitman say 'yo whatever' & 'it sounds clever' 'sound clever does it, yer twat?'

                            plus control a nine, fine, see now I represent mine

                              Yeah, I'm too much of perfectionist, as is obvious.
