Someone asked me what the hell is a Canhead anyway? Good question. Well, back in the day when the internet was new and people were throwing money at anything with a .com at the end of its name, I began my multimedia experiments with a humble little site called...Canhead.

We were looking for a catchy name, something that wouldn't tie itself to the actual website, but it had to be just odd enough to be remembered. (Think Razorfish, Google,
Yahoo, names like that.) I wanted to make a website that focuses on music (mainly hip-hop but all music is welcome) and is for people like me. After being called a pothead for eons, that was the easy part, but then I remebered a studio session I once assisted and the engineer said the word "cans" in reference to headphones, at least a thousand times.

I was in a bad mood or something and it annoyed me that this guy HAD to say cans instead of headphone..."Tune up the bass in the cans"..."Give the drummer a new set of cans"..."Have you seen those new wireless cans?"...."Whose cans are these?".....ENOUGH ALREADY WITH THE F'IN' CANS YA TWIT!!!

So after I was fired from that studio, I began calling headphones cans. I wanted the site to be for true heads that do what real heads do, smoke and listen to music. If your a super cool head, you listen to your music through your computer with your headphones...or cans.

Can..for..pot..heads. Can..for ...heads.....can...heads.......Canhead! (Brilliant!)

Feel me?

So anyway, the dot com bubble burst, "sponser"at the time) went Chapter 13 or something, I started a record company that is in limbo right now(still looking for my muse...a nice fat business loan!) and years later blogs were born and I get my revenge.

The Begining. (as opposed to the end, yaoming!)

Got to go, see you in Hollywood!
