|Immortal Technique chronology|
Revolutionary Vol. 1 is the debut album by rapper Immortal Technique in 2001, and re-pressed in 2004. The first edition had no distribution and no bar code; it was sold by the artist on the streets and at his shows. The album re-press was manufactured with a bar code and is being distributed worldwide by Viper Records. Immortal Technique claimed in an interview to have sold more than 45,000 copies.
The album is best known for the song "Dance with the Devil", a narrative in which Immortal Technique describes the story of a young man named Billy Jacobs who attempts to join a gang, and in order to prove how "real" he is, he steals, gets into fights, does cocaine, and to finally prove himself, rapes an innocent woman. An intoxicated Jacobs completes this task after covering the woman's face with her shirt, and is unaware of the identity of the woman until he takes the cover from her face. He is repulsed to find that the woman in question is actually his mother, which leads him to commit suicide. "I made myself more of a part of it when I wrote the song, and it eventually became an urban legend, and what's sick is that people thought it was about rape [when] it was really about how we are killing ourselves and destroying the most valuable resource that the Latino/Black community has, our women." The song has acquired something of a cult hit status in recent years.
Additionally, the album contains a song entitled "No Me Importa" (Spanish for "I Don't Care"). This is notably Immortal Technique's first song in Spanish, as he was born and spent a small portion of his childhood in Peru and learned to speak the language.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
