A shit load of states have been suffering from heat advisories all week, and Wisconsin is one of them. The only passable day was yesterday, and it was still in the upper 80s, just not as humid. Thank god for air conditioning and nice, cool, basements. I am not a hot weather creature. I prefer Mid to late spring and early to mid autumn for temperatures. Though, we had some wicked awesome thunderstorms this morning.
So, nothing really new here, except I applied at a local pizza place. Which is disheartening, but you gotta do what you gotta do to get that dough. Cash rules everything around me, which segues into my main point.
I'm not a big hip-hop or rap fan, but there are a few artists and eras I enjoy. Public Enemy, Run-DMC, some Jay-Z (99 Problems), Mobb Deep, Mos Def, fucking WU-TANG, and most of the "underground" scene of Minnesota. I posted a couple of Atmosphere songs in previous posts, Atmosphere being from Minneapolis. Last night, I made an awesome discovery. Doomtree, a collective of MCs from Minneapolis, including POS who has found a relatively widespread fame, recently did a mash-up album. 1st: fucking WU-TANG CLAN! Which, is the greatest rap collective of all time. But, the instrumental choice blew me away. Fugazi. Which is one of my favorite bands of all time. Which is one of the greatest bands that had their height in 1990s. Which has hardcore luminary Ian Mackaye flexing his musical muscles and proving how punk rock can be a legitimate art form. The band that may not have invented post-hardcore, but pushed the musical envelope to its limit. Everyone knows Wu-Tang clan. Add some Fugazi to that, and prepare to shit bricks. Here's an example:
Oh yeah, and i quit cigarettes cold turkey like two weeks ago. Wasn't as hard as other times I've tried. Did slip up twice, bummed drags off of friends, but haven't bought any. So yay on that account. But, I've noticed I've been eating more, which means that I'm moving up my diet to next week. Was hoping to start it after my trip, but whatevs. Starting Monday, my new physical self begins to truly take shape
Stay clutch, homies
