Kick, Push

Here's how I look when I listen to Lupe Fiasco's "Kick, Push":
I dunno why but I really like that song.
Hey, guess what? I'm basically all tapped out on things to blog about.
Today was a record music hall at Value Village! Old school hip hop tapes: De La Soul's De La Soul is Dead, Public Enemy's Fear of a Black Planet ("9-1-1- is a Joke"!), Run DMC's Tougher than Leather, and Stetsasonic's In Full Gear, plus some records that you can check out on Album Coverz.
I've been watching movies lately...The Science of Sleep (gorgeously fun), The Departed (fucking intense), and Marie Antoinette (interesting balance of excess and subtlety, with a great anachronistic soundtrack) in theatres, as well as Layer Cake (seen it before, but not since I read the book - the movie is really tight and impressively stylized without sacrificing any content/narrative), Elizabethtown (Orlando Bloom is a waste of time, and Cameron Crowe makes nice stories without anything too risky and doesn't direct his actors enough, which works with people with natural chemistry, but not fucking elves), and How to Get Ahead in Advertising (watch it!!!) on DVD.
And this weekend, Shout Out Out Out Out and DJs Hunnicutt and Co-Op, as well as Islands!

"Americans have long regarded the semi- colon with suspicion, as a genteel, self-conscious, neither-one-thing-nor-the other sort of punctuation mark, with neither the butchness of a full colon nor the flighty promiscuity of the comma. Hemingway and Chandler and Stephen King wouldn’t be seen dead in a ditch with a semi-colon (though Truman Capote might). Real men, goes the unwritten rule of American punctuation, don’t use semi-colons... If you really want to hurt your parents, and you don’t have the nerve to be a homosexual, the least you can do is go into the arts. But do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites, standing for absolutely nothing. All they do is show you’ve been to college."
