The United States Army has dropped the largest non-nuclear bomb in the country of Afghanistan on the date of 4/13/2017. This non-nuclear bomb weighs up to 21,600 lbs. (pounds). Impact of the blast from this bomb was severe. Several citizens felt impact from the bomb blast in combustion after the bomb had been detonated.

The bomb that dropped was called a GBU-43. A GBU-43 weighs 21,600 pounds (lbs.) and is considered by most to be massive. GBU-43 is considered as “Mother of All Bombs” by The Pentagon. Originally this bomb was designed as a deterrent which was used in the Middle East in the year of 2003, but is now being used as a weapon of terror and mass destruction. GBU-43 is designated for combat use.

US President Donald Trump authorized a non-nuclear bomb to be dropped in Afghanistan in a militaristic effort to sweep out the combative militant ISIS group. The bomb was intended for an ISIS target. Particularly, this ISIS target was located inside a cave in Afghanistan. 800 ISIS fighters are present in Afghanistan. Most ISIS fighters are located in a village called Nangarhar. Afghan forces are battling ISIS there as well.

This is Michael Mixerr. This news review will be about how Austin, Texas allows real estate development to build in floodplains. This news review will also be about why it is not a good idea to build or zone a neighborhood or a trailer park inside a floodplain.

Over the years, City of Austin has allowed real estate development to build housing located in flood plains which is a mistake on the City of Austin’s part. Neighborhoods such as Onion Creek, Yarrabee Bend, Timber Creek, Jet Lane, Rainey Street, Onion Creek Plantations, Rio Lado, Austin Pecan Trailer Park, and Williamson Creek are prime examples of bad planning and the City of Austin allowing real estate development to build housing inside floodplains.

Many trailer parks and several neighborhoods in Austin, Texas have been zoned to floodplains unintentionally meaning that in the past the City of Austin has allowed neighborhoods and trailer parks to be built in floodplains. Allowing home owners and real estate agencies to build homes in floodplains is not always the brightest idea as results show. These neighborhoods and trailer parks wiped out clean as a result from constant flooding.Mold would grow inside after flooding happened. As a result of constant flooding where neighborhoods built located inside of floodplains, the City of Austin has bought land property from several homeowners and neighborhood associations.

Some of these neighborhoods and trailer parks are located inside a 25 year floodplain or are located inside a 100 year floodplain. The case in Austin is that usually neighborhoods and trailer parks that are located alongside a creek or river are built inside a 25 year floodplain. Such as is the case with neighborhoods Onion Creek, Yarrabee Bend, Timber Creek, Jet Lane, Rainey Street, Onion Creek Plantations, Rio Lado, Elmont, and Williamson Creek.

Over the past 10 years, the City of Austin and FEMA has bought land property from several homeowners. City of Austin developed various flood buyout plans for several neighborhoods over the years. It is April 2017 and the City of Austin still has pending transactions on various floodplain buyouts for properties where houses are located on.

This is Michael Mixerr. Today I will review Lil Raskull - The Benediction.

The Benediction by Lil Raskull was packaged as a limited edition album as The Benediction album was an indie release. The Benediction came out in 2005/2017 on CD. As an album, The Benediction is specifically aimed at the Christian music market which is exactly why this particular Lil Raskull album is so hard to come by and is considered a collectors item among Christian music and gospel fans. Hardcore Lil Raskull fans should buy this album.

One Nation is about staying true to yourself by saying what you mean and meaning what you say. Lil Raskull showcases the gift of gab on One Nation. Lil Raskull gets truthful on I Can’t Lie. He has remorse for all the wrongs and sins he committed in life. Eyes Wide Shut has a dark powerful vibe with a heavy bass ridden line. Eyes Wide Shut sheds light on the dark truth of reality itself. Bang is a remix of Bang from the Streets Are White album that dropped the same year as this album. The musical arrangements have been altered heavily. Do Dem is a futuristic sounding track with a heavy pultruding bass line pulsating in the background. Interesting selection of electro blips from the keyboard.

Too Much is a truthful autobiographical track written by Lil Raskull himself. Lil Raskull showcases how he has too much life to live and how he obtains so mush wisdom to not give it all way. Basically Lil Raskull showcases how exactly he has too much to loose in his life. Lil Raskull won’t stop until he reaches the top.

Lil Raskull gets religious on the prestigious track Trust God. On this track, Lil Raskull tells us not to loose hope or faith, but to trust God. He wants the listener to put all their hope and faith towards God. You can hear some Christian disciples cited if you listen closely. Trust God is appropriate for an album titled The Benediction. Christian music fans will appreciate this track.

I rate this album, The Benediction, 5/5*****!

This is Michael Mixerr. Today I will review Suthern Merchandise - Suthern Stress.

Blasted is about how Suthern Merchandise blasts on these fools in these SA Town streets and Texas streets. Blastin' on dem fools! Blasted is a revenge laced track about giving payback to rivals and enemies as Blasted is a no holds barred type of track. The Suthern Merchandise group is taking no shorts or any losses on this track right here. Blasted is gangsta rap from Texas at its finest.

It's easy to be a soldier when there's no war on Live and Die Like a Soldier. Real talk. Real shit! Being a soldier in these city streets is not an easy task to accomplish. The mission is to get rich as possible and turn your cash (income) legit. People say you can’t be a soldier if there is no war. However that statement is not always proven to be true or accurate. Henceforth the title of this track. Live and Die Like a Soldier is gangsta rap from Texas at its finest.

N 2 Deep is about being deep in the game. Deep in the game of life. N 2 Deep is also about being in too deep in a lifestyle of criminal activity. The mission is to get rich as possible and turn your cash (income) legit. However law enforcement is the biggest concern of the game.

Gangstas In A Playin Mood is a sex song. It has those heavy guitars and heavy bass. You can’t stop Gangstas In A Playin Mood. Ricé's production shines all over the place as he is solely responsible for producing this track. Sex rap meets gangsta rap with such bravado on top of provocative lyrics.

The title speaks for itself on Money Talks. It has a super heavy bass line with that G-Funk. Money talks and bullshit walks on Money Talks. Ain’t a god damn thang funny.

A Brand New Game talks about how new the game was in 1997. Suthern Merchandise brought forth a brand new game for the year 1997 on the track A Brand New Game. Ricé and K-Sam produced the track A Brand New Game.

One In The Trunk is about killing rivals, enemies, and random people. One In The Trunk is about getting revenge for a friend that had been killed by an enemy. This track is another track with a super heavy bass line and that G-Funk stye laced rap. Ricé's production shines all over the place as he is solely responsible for producing this track. Take notice of the heavy whiny G-Funk sine used on this particular track. One In The Trunk is gangsta rap from Texas at its finest.

Suthern Stress is a 7 minute long posse cut featuring all members of Suthern Merchandise. Each and every member kicks a verse of rap. Black Jay and Lady Lunatic stand out the most on the 7 minute long posse cut Suthern Stress.


This album is one of the most rarest Texas rap albums out there along with Lil Sin - Frustrated By Death, P.K.O - Armed and Dangerous, P.K.O - Don’t Fuck With Texas, and Jhiame - Screamin' Dat Pimpin'! For some reason, San Antonio rap gets overlooked. This album has super heavy bass, doo-dooism, gangsta rap, Rock, sex, and heavy guitars. Suthern Merchandise was a rap group and a record label in 1997 that came from San Antonio, Texas.

I rate this album, Suthern Stress, 5/5*****!!

This is Michael Mixerr. Today I will review Jhiame - Doesn't This Love (Feel Good 2 U) / Ya! Liv'n Wrong.

Doesn't This Love (Feel Good 2 U) / Ya! Liv'n Wrong came out as a single on vinyl in 1990 from Jhiame Productions. Jhiame was very much influenced with the New Jack Swing sound that was fairly prevalent in R&B at the time. Added with some hip hop flava along with R&B flava is a touch of Memphis soul. As a matter of fact, Jhiame wrote and produced the whole single with Wordman along with the help from others lending a hand in production. The single Doesn't This Love (Feel Good 2 U) / Ya! Liv'n Wrong has something for the brothas and something for the sistas, hence the title.

Doesn't This Love (Feel Good 2 U) is a bedroom oriented R&B/Soul love ballad perfectly suited for your lover. Much of Doesn't This Love (Feel Good 2 U) has an early 90s R&B sound. The music itself proves to be smooth with Jhiame’s talented production skills. The song Doesn't This Love (Feel Good 2 U) is for the sistas. Added with some organic soul music is some R&B flava along with that Memphis soul sound. To sum it all up, Doesn't This Love (Feel Good 2 U) is an R&B slow jam.

Ya! Liv'n Wrong critiques how the brothas live their lifestyle. Many brothas are just living wrong and living raw. Jhiame takes no shorts or no losses as he calls people out throughout the track while criticizing them at the same time. Ya! Liv'n Wrong is for the brothas.

I rate this single,  Doesn't This Love (Feel Good 2 U) / Ya! Liv'n Wrong, 5/5*****!!

This is Michael Mixerr. Today I will review Jhiame's self-titled album called Jhiame [Jhiame - Jhiame] .

This album has that neo-soul New Jack Swing sound with an R&B/Soul edge to it. This album came out on vinyl and CD in 1992 on Jhiame Productions out of Houston, Texas. The Jhiame albums production is  very similar to the early 90's production style of Teddy Riley. Jhiame was heavily influenced by Guy at the time of producing his first album. Jhiame was heavily influenced by Guy at the time of his production when he first started out producing for various artists including Goldie and himself.


Rhythm of Luv is a smooth R&B love song that is obviously a slow jam hence the title itself. A mellow R&B slow jam. Jhiame was heavily influenced by R&B slow jams when he produced and wrote this song of his. Rhythm of Luv is a touch of R&B/Soul.

Why U Wanna Change Me Now is about now that they're a couple, the woman wants Jhiame to change his ways. Jhiame ain't up on it. Why U Wanna Change Me Now was possibly influenced from the song Why U Treat Me So Bad by Club Nouveau. Why U Wanna Change Me Now is soul song influenced with old school R&B.

C'mon Babe is about Jhaime getting a woman to love him. C'mon Babe is somewhat obviously similar to Why U Wanna Change Me Now as both songs have obvious similarities in comparison to each other comparatively speaking. C'mon Babe and Why U Wanna Change Me Now were possibly influenced from the song Why U Treat Me So Bad by Club Nouveau.


Doesn't This Love (Feel Good 2 U) is a bedroom oriented R&B/Soul love ballad perfectly suited for your lover. The music itself proves to be smooth with Jhiame’s talented production skills. The song Doesn't This Love (Feel Good 2 U) is for the sistas.

Much of Doesn't This Love (Feel Good 2 U) has an early 90s R&B sound. Added with some organic soul music is some R&B flava along with that Memphis soul sound. To sum it all up, Doesn't This Love (Feel Good 2 U) is an R&B slow jam and is yet another sex song. Jhiame was very much influenced with the New Jack Swing sound that was fairly prevalent in R&B at the time. Added with some hip hop flava along with R&B flava is a touch of Memphis soul. As a matter of fact, Jhiame wrote and produced Doesn't This Love (Feel Good 2 U) with Wordman along with the help from others lending a hand in production.

The song Doesn't This Love (Feel Good 2 U) came from the Doesn't This Love (Feel Good 2 U) / Ya! Liv'n Wrong vinyl single in 1990 on Jhiame Productions. The single Doesn't This Love (Feel Good 2 U) / Ya! Liv'n Wrong had something for the brothas and something for the sistas, hence the title.


Inner City Blues is a cover version of the same song by Marvin Gaye. Jhiame raps on Inner City Blues at the very beginning. Inner City Blues samples Marvin Gaye - Inner City Blues and The DOC - The Formula which you can hear clearly if you focus your attention on the samples used along with Jhiame’s production. Jhiame was influenced by Marvin Gaye’s song Inner City Blues when he first produced his own cover of Inner City Blues for his first album.

Jhiame represents Jhiame Productions as he raps about his production company in the very beginning of the song. Rap meets R&B/Soul on Inner City Blues. Jhiame sure knows how to captivate his audience with flows in his own raps. Other than that, Jhiame sure knows how to captivate his audiences attention with his soulful sound.


If you are looking for or longing for longevity, then you will be disappointed as this Jhiame album has only has 8 songs. Most of this album is short. However, if you are a fan of long obscure R&B/Soul, then this Jhiame album is perfect for you. Most Jhiame albums are overlooked and overshadowed by R&B/Soul fans in general altogether. The Jhiame album is an iconic masterpiece in Houston soul and Houston rap.

I rate this album, Jhiame, 4/5****!!

This is Michael Mixerr. Today I will review DJ Laz - Pimpin’.

In all honesty by any means, Pimpin’ is one of the most overlooked DJ Laz albums from the Pandisc record label corporation. Bass music dominates the whole album. The production is as smooth as ever. The electronic sound inside its own modernized production gives the album a polished sound. Heavy trunk rattlin' bass dominates the album. La Fiesta is spicy mix of Spanish music infused with bass music. La Fiesta also has a blended mixture of salsa music. Legendary DJ Spin lends a hand in production for the track Hold Up with Fern Roc. Let Them Ho’s Fight contains samples of Burn Rubber On Me by The Gap Band.

I rate this album, Pimpin’, 4/5****!

Mixerr Reviews #954

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

Currently as of April 2017, the Cedar Valley School sits abandoned in a large field of overgrown grass from resulting vegetation. Brush covers the lot. All entrances to the school building are boarded up. The front entrance is still boarded up to this day. Several windows are reported to be broken. Jim Connelly Masonry, Inc. owns the land where Cedar Valley School is. It is unclear if current owner Jim Connelly Masonry, Inc. has any plans for future development.

Cedar Valley School holds an important place in the history of Oak Hill that has long been forgotten. Lack of historic preservation and political interest is what led to the demise of Cedar Valley School. The City of Austin should have designated Cedar Valley School as a/or with a “City of Austin Historical Landmark”. Cedar Valley School remains as one of the few surviving public school buildings associated with development of Oak Hill with the former 1924 Oak Hill School. The Cedar Valley School is regarded as a prominent historic structure being one of few remainders of rural Oak Hill.

The location is 7901 Thomas Springs Drive, Austin, Texas, US 78736.

This is Michael Mixerr. This news review will be about the former Cedar Valley School in Austin, Texas.

Early settler Mark Thomas gave land for a school in 1867 where modern day Thomas Springs Road is located. This school would become known as the Cedar Valley School. However the Cedar Valley School would not be built or opened until late 19th century. The Cedar Valley School was built in 1883 to serve the Oak Hill community and Cedar Valley community as a schoolhouse operating from 1883 to 1953. The Cedar Valley School was also known as the Cedar Valley Schoolhouse.

1st grade through 7th grade were taught at the Cedar Valley School. Middle school grades 6th grade through 7th grade were taught at Cedar Valley School. Cedar Valley School operated as an elementary school and middle school. Each class was made up of 6 to 7 students. Ratio was 6:1, on occasion with being a 7:1. 6 being students and 1 being the teacher. Some students who lived in the Oak Hill community did not attend school until the 5th grade because students would have to help their families grow crops during harvesting season. After 7th grade, students were bussed into Austin ISD schools. Upon graduation from both Cedar Valley and Oak Hill Schools, students would be bussed off into Fulmore Junior High School now known as Fulmore Middle School which continues to be operated by Austin ISD.

The Cedar Valley School can be described as one tiny room as the school originally operated in one room at the very beginning. Cedar Valley School was originally to be as a one-room schoolhouse as planned. Right before Cedar Valley School closed, another room was built. The second room was built in 1952. A third room was built later that year.

The Oak Hill School and Cedar Valley School consolidated in 1953. Cedar Valley School was closed and consolidated into the Oak Hill School District in 1953. The reason why Cedar Valley School was closed down and consolidated was due to lack of funding directly from dwindling property taxes in direct attribution also by Oak Hill School District consolidating various schools in the Oak Hill community and Cedar Valley community. Students who attended Cedar Valley School were bussed to Oak Hill School on US 290.

In 1960, Cedar Valley joined Oak Hill and Manchaca to form a rural school district, but got annexed by Austin ISD in 1967. 1960 is where Oak Hill School District and Manchaca School District attempted to form a short-lived school district that lasted from 1960 up until 1967 in a 6 to 7 year timespan. 1967 is the year when Austin ISD annexed the school districts of Oak Hill and Manchaca.
Despite being operated and supervised indirectly by the Oak Hill School District itself, the Cedar Valley School was directly associated with the Oak Hill community itself. Nevertheless, the Cedar Valley School was always considered a part of the Oak Hill School District regardless of consolidation and closing.

From 1968 to 2001, the former Cedar Valley Schoolhouse ran as a community center under the title of Cedar Valley Community Hall. In 2001, the Cedar Valley Community Hall closed and became abandoned falling into disrepair. Over the years, the Cedar Valley Community Hall has fallen into a state of disrepair. Jim Connelly Masonry, Inc. bought the land in the mid 2000s.

Currently as of April 2017, the Cedar Valley School sits abandoned in a large field of overgrown grass from resulting vegetation. Brush covers the lot. All entrances to the school building are boarded up. The front entrance is still boarded up to this day. Several windows are reported to be broken. Jim Connelly Masonry, Inc. owns the land where Cedar Valley School is. It is unclear if current owner Jim Connelly Masonry, Inc. has any plans for future development.
