Mixerr Reviews #952

This is Michael Mixerr. This news review will be about the status of the former Montopolis School in Austin, Texas.

Today, Montopolis Church of Christ better known as the Montopolis School, is currently located in its same position as an original steel framework structure. The school building is rotting away due to neglect and lack of upkeep in terms of maintenance. Montopolis School can be defined as a symbol of urban decay. Signs of vandalism and graffiti are evident.

On the date of 1/3/2017, Austin Stonewall filed an application for demolition to build 15 single family units and apartments as part of his original real estate plan with KEEP Investment Group/Real Estate. Austin Statesman reports it is more than likely at some point that the Montopolis School will be demolished. Austin Statesman reports historic properties like the Montopolis School are extremely vulnerable to demolition even thought the city has recommended to initiate historic zoning to keep the Montopolis School from being demolished after they determined the building to be historic. This building qualifies for a historical landmark designation, but that alone will not be enough to save the school from further demolition.

Plaintiffs Austin Stonewall and KEEP Investment Group are pushing for demolition in order for 15 single-family units to be on the property. These 15 single-family units will be built on 2 rectangular acres. The City of Austin and real estate developers are currently debating the outcome for the Montopolis School. Still nothing has been implemented or decided yet by the city. Austin Stonewall currently owns property of the land where for which the Montopolis School is located on.

Many groups want the city to keep the school by using empty land as a park and school as a museum. These groups pressed city hall to preserve the Montopolis School by issuing the property with a historical landmark. The Montopolis Neighborhood Association called upon City of Austin to buy the Montopolis School from Austin Stonewall (Austin Stowell) of KEEP Investment Group.

The location is 500 Montopolis Drive, Austin, Texas, US 78741.

This is Michael Mixerr. Today I will review Tow Down - Chicken Fried Steak.

After enjoying moderate regional success with his first album in the state of Texas, he released a sophomore album titled Chicken Fried Steak in 2002. Chicken Fried Steak is a fine example of country rap for which Texas is well known for. Tow Down is an example of fine country rap next to Haystak, Butta Bean, Paul Wall, Bubba Sparxxx, Mean Gene, Lil Black, and Nelly. In fact, Tow Down’s delivery style of rap is similar to Haystak, Butta Bean, Paul Wall, and Bubba Sparxxx.


Included in the liner notes are recipe for chicken fried steak and ingredients for that recipe. A high amount of salt and pepper is used in this recipe. This Tow Down album wouldn’t be complete without a recipe for chicken fried steak. Hence the title.

Chicken Fried Steak is a fine brehsive country rap tune by Tow Down. The tune is the highlight of this album. Of course you can’t have chicken fried steak without the grits. Add a portion of steak sauce and you are good to go. Ironically everything mentioned in the tune is food theme. Not everyone can handle the brehsiveness of Tow Down. Take noice of the raw country sound.

The Tow Down tune is all about getting high. Plain and simple as the Tow Down tune is smooth country rap. The beat is bananas and totally funny. Tow Down contains a portion of Slow Down by Brand Nubian. The whole track was produced by Grizz.

The Interview is spoken word over a funky funny beat with such great storytelling. The chorus in the background is gold. His rhymes are gold. He always delivers out great rhymes.


Rich Girl is about how a rich girl falls in love with a man for his money. She is basically using him as she is after his money. It was love at first site as Tow Down explains. This rich girl had intentions and ambitions for the finer things in life that rich people can afford. Tow Down explains he’s not having it in the middle of the song. (Even his manager couldn’t manage this.) The moral to the story is that you can’t rely on another man’s money. You can’t rely on Tow Down’s money. Rely on your own money.

Ronetta Spencer is featured on the chorus hooks. The chorus in the background is gold. Rich Girl is a country rap cover version of Hall & Oates - Rich Girl by Tow Down and Ronetta Spencer.

I rate this album, Chicken Fried Steak, 5/5*****!!

This is Michael Mixerr. Today I will review Lil Corb - Danger Zone.

Danger Zone is a classic album from former Kami Kaze Inc. member Lil Corb (Corbin Rome) that was released in 2002. Lil Corb was known as the “Killa from the North Side” in Memphis, Tennessee.
Many of the tracks on this album are pulled from his debut album entitled Killa from the North Side which was locally released on cassette only in the Memphis area during 1994. MC Mack produced this album and the Killa from the North Side cassette in 1994. Most of the tracks on this album are newly recorded tracks that did not appear on the 1994 Killa from the North Side cassette. Tracks such as the Intro, Deadly Friend, Killa from the North Side, and Shot Outs are from the Killa from the North Side cassette. Only the difference is that the production and sound quality is more polished for the new millennium to comply with having a more updated sound.

Deadly Friend is from the Killa from the North Side cassette that was released in 1994. The only difference is that the sound quality and production is more polished. The music instrumentation arrangements have been rearranged to have a more polished updated sound. Percussion is more processed and treble has been slightly reduced. Deadly Friend definitely has that spooky horrorcore sound. Deadly Friend and Killa from the North Side are both tracks that will want to make you sit alone meditating in the dark while you drift away listening to the horrorcore sound of Lil Corb. It’s insane how Lil Corb mastered the triplet flow.

Killa from the North Side is a Memphis classic!

Run Yo Mouth has a Todd Rundgren sample to it. It’s insane how Lil Corb mastered the triplet flow here on Run Yo Mouth. The lyrics are quirky and insane. Run Yo Mouth, as well, has an updated more polished sound. Good shit.

I rate this album, Danger Zone, 4/5****!

This is Michael Mixerr. This news review will be about how the Antioch School in Buda, Texas was revitalized.

In 2008, the City of Buda administration set aside a large sum amount of money to rebuild and revitalize the Antioch School. That large amount of money set aside by the City of Buda was used to revitalize the Antioch School. In 2009, the Antioch School was rebuilt and revitalized by volunteers, preservationists, and community activists. Much work on the inside needs to be done. Broken glass on the ground needs to be removed. A few walls need to be painted to comply with building code standards.

As of March 2017, outside walls for Antioch School have been painted white again as maintenance requires due to the fact the Antioch School is a Texas Historic Landmark. Today Antioch School remains in its position at Antioch Park for which the school is located on. The Antioch School also functions as a community center.

This is Michael Mixerr. This news review will be about how the Independent Party or any independent political party does not have power in America.

An independent political party is not capable to rely on the infrastructure set in place by the two political parties in America. Political machines are what get people elected. Leadership comes with these victories. Despite all that, Independents tend not to secure a position for nomination, but Independents do take in enough voters gained in from key areas to qualify for a candidate victory.
In short, the Independent Party or any independent political party does not waver a lot of power in America. An independent political party is not totally capable of relying on the infrastructure set in place by the two political parties in America.

This is Michael Mixerr. Today I will review Lard - Power of Lard.

Although Lard fans consider this recording as an album, Power of Lard is technically an EP due to the short selection of songs available. The shortness of this EP retracts this recording from being a full album despite what Lard fans may think and/or say. Power of Lard has unique blends of both political commentary and social commentary into the roots of industrial rock. The Power of Lard is considerably unique due to the political commentary and social commentary. The theme is upbeat and rowdy. Time To Melt is the weakest track off the EP as the sound is too filitered and watered down.

I rate this album, Power of Lard, 3/5***.
