You'll find it in da club

I love Santogold and I respect Fitty. I also have a nasty habbit of making dumbass blends while I have some extra time. And a few nights ago I had a too much time on my hands, so here's the outcome. Pure, idiotic, simple and designed to make the club go crazy after 3 AM. Especially if the club's filled with beer bong-loving college studs / martini sipping cheerleaders. Love it or hate it here folks, it's fresh from the bakery:

You can spam Bill back all you want on this email:

Now, what's more interesting about Rev. Bill than his stupid flyer offer is the fact that he indeed seems to be the very same man, who has had an important role in trying to bring out to light information about UFOs and secret government documents about them in 1940s:

"The First Roswell by Ryan Wood of tells of an interview with Charlette Mann and references two signed affidavits that support Ms. Mann's recollections about a UFO crash in rural SEMO (southeast Missouri). Based on Ms. Mann's letter to UFO researcher Leonard Stringfield (link to copy of letter), the abstract indicates Ms. Mann's grandfather -- Reverend William Huffman -- was a Cape Girardeau Baptist minister. On a spring Cape Girardeau evening in 1941, the Reverend received a call for assistance. Upon arrival to the crash site outside of Cape Girardeau, the Reverend found something extraordinary happened. Reverend Huffman indicated the local military personnel on site swore all to secrecy because the object was of unknown origin. It was, according to the respected Baptist Reverend, a downed space ship -- an alleged UFO. Some researchers speculate Chicago received the UFO wreckage and Manhattan Project scientists, like Einstein, worked on backward engineering of the craft. The abstract suggests the UFO retrieval personnel would have been the 309 of the Sikeston Missouri Institute of Aeronautics . A time and place consistant with genealogical research."

So the actual story goes like this:

"East Texans Shares "Family Secret" Of UFO Sighting

"I was not a big UFO person, didn't know much about it other than my own experience." Sitting in her Tyler, Texas home, Charlotte man tells us about her experience, which she calls the "family secret," many of the details discovered on her grandparents deathbeds.

It was April, 1941 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Around 9:30 p.m., Charlotte's grandfather,
Reverend William Huffman, got a call about a plane crash and was asked to help. "When they got out there, it wasn't a plane crash at all. It was a saucer, was how he described it," says Charlotte.

According to the story, 3 alien bodies lie on the ground next to the spaceship; two already dead. "However, granddad said the third one when he got to him, he was breathing very shallow and so he did pray with him. He did expire as he was on his knees praying for him. He then went to the other two and prayed over them."

Charlotte's grandfather then took a closer look at the spaceship. "What he was most impressed with was in the inside there were writings, but he did not recognize it. He said it looked similar to hieroglyphics. The Egyptian hieroglyphics," explains Charlotte.

Quickly, the scene was covered with military personnel and Reverend Huffman was sworn to secrecy. Charlotte says, "He was told, 'This did not happen. You did not see this. This is enormous national security. You're not to ever speak of it again.'"

But the enormity of what he had witnessed was too much for a man. The shock on his face told what his words, at first, did not. Then after gaining their promise, he shared with his family what had happened. "Granddad was a quiet man to begin with but grandmother said the look on his face was different," says Charlotte.

A few weeks after the UFO crash,
Reverend Huffman was given a picture taken that night by a local photographer. "He felt like someone else besides himself should have a copy and granddad was the only one he trusted. So he gave him a copy of the picture. So I had seen that picture all growing up." Charlotte goes on to say, "You couldn't see those big eyes and not be affected. It wasn't anything I had ever seen."

That picture went missing years ago after her grandfather loaned it to a friend, who never returned it. But seeing that picture and knowing the integrity of her grandfather, Charlotte believes the story is true. But, she never had any proof until a few years ago while doing research for a documentary on the crash.

"We got validation by going to the archives in Washington D.C. And to see a top secret declassified document that stated that there was in fact a crash retrieval in 1941 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, for me, I have not forgotten holding that paper in my hand and realizing that my families story was real, was solid, and for me was just an answer to a long time question.
