Last book to dust off and actually read...good story of a young boy growing up and trying to become a man while trying to figure shit out...too smart for his own good and purposely naive to own up to it...must re-read...some of the references in the book made me feel as if I was listening to a Dennis Miller monologue...fuck that dude is a douche bag...regardless go out and buy the book...

Growing up I never had real idols to look up to besides Don Mattingly and Dave Winfield. There was no one I really wanted to emulate. Luckily coming from a third world family I had relatives in all the best parts of the city- South Bronx, Bushwick, The Heights and every fucked up neighborhood in Queens. On Sundays after church we would pack into the car and go from house to house visiting my family. The only thing to do was look out the window and peep whats going on. I've been a graffiti nerd since about 6 or so. What I noticed was on every highway and street was JOZ and Easy. Sometimes there would be a Josh5 tag along but for the most part it was JOZ and Easy wherever I went. Now it wasn't just some bullshit catch one tag on every block, these dudes crushed store front grills like nobodies business. Seeing these dudes get up blew my fucking mind as a kid. Unfortunately there isn't much documentation on the intoenets but take these photos and multiply by 1000....it still wouldn't give these men any justice. There was no Batman and Robin for me...but fuck JOZ and Easy were the truth....

First time I heard Mulatu was while I was watching Broken Flowers...couldn't help but get caught up in the vibes and I was hooked right afterwards. As of recent Nas and Damien Marley have sampled him. Kick back and dig on it...and if you can catch him live I highly suggest it...

Almost lost you this week but you made it...we fight, argue and snap on one another but that has been the last 31yrs of my life with you...not sure who else would stick up for me growing up, teach me how to cut J.H.S. and sneak off to Rockaway Beach to play handball, take me shopping to The Ville when I was in elementary school(even though you hated me for being a tag-a-long because moms made me come along), schooled me on how to puff a Newport correctly and barter baby sitting my niece with nickel bags when I was 16...oh shit almost forgot the most important part you taught me the whole freestyle catalogue from '86-'92...for all that and I'm sure I'm missing a lot..I love you big sis...we still have ways to go...
Jesus I think I heard this song 200 times a day the summer Richie broke up with you...You even had the Cynthia haircut...
