Month: October 2015
It’s funny to think that so much music I heard at 5 yrs old stuck with me. That it had such profound impact at such a young (albeit influential) age. So, just like with dr dre and ATCQ, the first time I heard Nirvana I was all in. I’m sure it was the smells like teen spirit video. But I instantly fell in Love with them. We all only really had a short time with Kurt Cobain’s genius. And based on montage of heck, we would’ve gotten to keep him around even longer had they solved his stomach ailment (maybe). I do believe we watched this live and I know I watched the many replays of the unplugged special. I remember my mom being a little scared of my fascination when Kurt bugged out at the mtv awards performance and started smashing his guitar on stage, for no apparent reason. Luckily our home was without censorship so I was allowed to continue being enamored with the tortured star. I hope the universe freed Kurt from his pains. He was truly a gift.

Shea Serrano The Rap Yearbook signing and panel
Finally met the gawd after being pals on the tweeters for several years. It was at Skylight books and man is that place great. Kinda small but very great. They have little events there a lot. It’s surrounded by hipster but that’s not so bad, I guess. The Churro Borrough is right down the street so that’s a definitely plus. 9/10. I would def bone again. Also, you gotta support local independent business. YOU HAVE TO! Anywho, because I know him (Shea, duh) I got to cut the long ass line to get my book signed (fuck yeah hoe). The panel/discussion they had set up was cool. He had the authors of the short rebuttals in the book argue their point live. And Shea is so fucking meta that, just like his articles, there were asides very loosely tied to the subject at hand and non-sequiturs for non-sequiturs sake. ‘Twas great. Plus I met Chris Ryan and talked to him about Liverpool so that was fun. We both have so much optimism for the Klopp Era. Next time I need more time to kick it with Shea. There’s plenty we have to talk about.
