MCA, you were a brilliant producer, a gifted MC, a rap pioneer and a generous soul the likes of which are not often seen. You gave the world so much in the short time you were here and I can’t believe you’re gone. Thanks for every song, every cause and every precious minute you lived. RIP MCA.
I was perusing the internet to find one of my favorite comedians, Anthony Jeselnik’s brutal performance on the Charlie Sheen roast, which led me to his performance on the Trump roast, which in turn led me to this. The Situation of Jersey Shore fame, trying his had at comedy and FAILING MISERABLY. Enjoy, or don’t.
VCU in 1977. This video kept me up a good hour longer than I needed last night, watching and rewatching. Former VCU art professor, the late Glenn Hamm captured this amazing footage back in 1977 all over Grace Street, Monroe Park and what looks like parts of Franklin Street. It’s so cool being able to see what the area looked like over 40 years ago, and to see what’s still standing. Music and editing was done by Glenn Hamm’s son, Carl “DJ Carlito” Hamm.
So, this happened at the New York Governor’s Debate yesterday. It’s sort of surreal that it’s not a staged moment, whether or not Jimmy McMillan is serious or not. I don’t think I could legitimately vote for this guy, but he does make a valid point - the rent is too damn high.
I meant to put this up last week, but time got away from me. My good friend Jonathan (or as most of his friends call him, Jon Jon) had an art opening at Cous Cous last Thursday, and we went to check it out. The show is pretty impressive both in size and quality of work, and it runs through the end of the month. The flyer above uses a painting he did based on a photo he took of me last year during a scavenger hunt we both went on. It’s not quite life size, but it’s almost there. If you get a chance to swing by and check out the show, it’s totally worth your time.
I'm a designer and bartender in Richmond, Virginia. I also play music, read comic books, enjoy beer and screenprint on anything I can get my hands on. In an attempt to help fill what little free time I have with more activities, I've created this Tumblr. Welcome.
