YOOOOOO!! I need to see this man! Cooke was that dude. couldn’t play his senior cuz he was 19 before the season started. Against the rules in NJ. oh what could’ve been. Also, the 2001 high schoolers fuckin up killed the 02 Draft Class of high schoolers. That’s why Amare dropped to 8th.
props to the 2dbz
This is the most important mix that my dude Spin has ever made! Listen to it!!
Dilla day. 3 favs and a masterful tribute.
This was gifted to me Xmas 03. Junior year of high school. By Hinna. I believe me and Hinna got close sometime sophomore year. She took the time to get to know and understand me. Maybe that’s why she put up with a lot of my childish BS. Anyway, on the last day of school before break she gave me a gift bag. I had to walk around all day with it and hear questions on the bus and I also believe we had a basketball game that night. Everyone was curious as to the contents and the nature of our relationship for that matter. Both were none of their business. Although, me and Hinna were just friends (sidebar: I always felt if I ACTUALLY persued her I would’ve gotten a chance at heartbreak). Eventually I opened the gift. It was a blanket, pillow, and teddy bear. The reasoning? I wasn’t allowed to go home most nights and had to find a place to stay. So she gave me something to have on my journeys and a way to feel at home no matter where I went. Needless to say I didn’t take them with me everyday. When you’re on the go you pack essentials and pack light. For me this meant my CD player, batteries and cd’s. BUT this was the sweetest, most thoughtful and most significant gift I have EVER received. It’s a gesture that I hold close and am reminded of every holiday season. Hinna, I love you. Wherever you are I hope you are happy and enjoying success in life.
Tiff and Clarice ask me about you more than I’d like. I don’t think they believe that I’m ok (am I though?). They worry. I should be grateful… But this song came on shuffle in the car. And GOD DAMN! It seems like it was yesterday when you sent that sweet sentiment about this song to me. Now? Ha! Smh.
New pick ups from the local book store Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore

I learned to today that my uncle performed at the Trabadour with his band once upon a time.
