You can't keep a good Hammer down. After going through his own version of Steve Martin's The Jerk several years back, the SF Gate reports that Hammer is starting a new website, dancejam.com. Users can upload videos of their version of the Kid 'N Play dance, as well as other various moves and performances. Personally, I'm hoping for a video submission from Wacky D. Please SF Gate, don't hurt 'em:

DanceJam is getting its start by tapping into the dance phenomenon, underscored by such pop culture crazes as the television show "Dancing with the Stars" and the hip-hop footwork of Soulja Boy and the Billboard-topping song "Crank That."

On the DanceJam site, users can record their moves and upload them, as well as watch and rate others' skills. "The next star might be a kid sitting on his couch," Hammer said.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
