Hennessey On Ice is the monk meditating on top of the highest mountain and the bugs crawling through the filth in the lowest gutter. When you almost reach the top of the summit, we are there to push you back down. And when you are sinking in the sludge, we will lend a sturdy hand to pull you out. We are whatever you want us to be. We are both the curtain and the man behind it*. Sit down and stay awhile, we think you will like it here.
Hennessey On Ice is high concept, low execution. We are stilted, pulpy, and not quite on the mark. We put out accessible nonsense and coherent gibberish, part fantasy and part hard news. Our reporting methods are impenetrable, populist, obtuse, clear, and sophisticated, and our tone hovers between sincere and smarmy. We toe the line between wide-eyed and bitter, restrained and hot, unhinged and cool. We walk the fine line between repulsion and engagement, straddle the broad line between profound and inane, and we draw the line at a point between boredom and rapture. Our content is sometimes mad real, sometimes mad fake, always seriously sinister and silly. From some angles we are repellant and from others attractive. But from all angles, we have been described as peachy and unimpeachable.
We are abrasive and sweet. We speak in staccato and take long, deep breaths.
Here at Hennessey On Ice, we are more than a lifestyle. We are more than a way of thinking. We are an institution. You will be required to sign a contract if you wish to interact with us, and we drug test before allowing anyone to make our acquaintance. If you are mad that we do not rap about the drugs you take or peeved because we do rap about drugs though you do not take them, well, it is ok. We personally do not do any drugs or illegal activities, but mention them once in awhile to sound cool.
All creeds, races, socioeconomic classes, and ages are welcome here at Hennessey On Ice even if you get slightly dissed. If we happen to make fun of groups you identify with we are deeply sorry. We try not to target any groups specifically, as audiences or victims. Some might say this constitutes a lack of focus but we don’t really see it like that. We see it as a grand welcoming of our fellow man and woman into the rainbow colored melting pot of universality.
We are here for the downtrodden and the privileged – the derelict and disgusting as well as the rich, the popular, and the beautiful. If you happen to be a one percenter, donations are welcome. Corporate partnerships are available for all, and if you are interested please just leave a comment below with all your information, including checking account and bank routing numbers.
We cater to the intelligent and the unintelligible, and our work serves the irascible and incredibly patient. We appeal to the stable and certifiably insane, arcane beatniks and urbane twits. Those who only look ahead, only look back, plus those content to “live in the moment,” whatever that means.
Here at Hennessey On Ice, we spit streams of consciousness, and hope they land somewhere between earth-shattering, pointless, mood altering, profane, sublime, and cryptic. Our product may make you prone to fits of jubilation. It may make you feel sad, worthless, dejected; it could even make you physically ill or at least little queasy. But behold, all the secrets of humanity wrapped up in one neat lil package.
We endeavor to plant the listener in the midst of a toast in a Jamaican shanty or a hardcore rap battle in Bed-Stuy. Our product is for people who like original music as well as completely derivative efforts that are shameless in their tasteless appropriation of the past (actual) work of our forebears. We are almost trying too hard to stay relevant, often resulting in an aura cooler than that of a “hipster,” but with less of that new age nonsense.
This is an outlet for the most heinous, vile, ebullient, and life-affirming human thoughts possible. This is for those who have never lost, raised a brow, or produced a bead of sweat. This for the underdogs and the perennially neglected monsters underneath brave men’s beds. We offer you strength and weakness. We are badass and bitch incarnate. Please, take some time to listen to our hymns and bask in our beams of brilliance.
*Well, really just the man behind it.
