my makeup artist friend damion wanted to shoot some beauty with one of his male model friends named george, so i was down. last minute he was like, “i think i have a female model coming too. we’ll have them do some doubles.” i was like, “ok, cool. what are we doing for wardrobe?” and he was all, “i think we’re just going to throw them in the tub.” so that was that. BUT, as models are want to do for tests, the female model bailed. i called a model friend of mine and was like, “hey christine, so what are you doing like – right now?” turned out she was down to shoot, so she rolled out and completely crushed it. thanks, christine.

this stinky bunch of rascals is my niece and nephews. they’re all fueled by goat milk. it’s pretty tolerable to get puked on by babies, but not if they’ve been drinkin goat milk. one day one of em hacked up on the bottom of my jeans, and i kind of ignored it. a few hours later i was like, “dude, WHAT is that SMELL?” and i couldn’t figure it out. every now and then i’d get a whiff of a smell that would almost curl my toenails, and i kept looking around to try and find it. another hour or so later, in some golden glance of inspiration, my eyes got big like quarters and i sat up straight and thought, “oh, no – my jeans.” i bent down to take a whiff and it was like a mangy, wet goat found it’s way to my legs about three weeks earlier, got nice and comfy, curled up and died. that stuff could make a vulture gag.
we say grace, we say ma’am – if you ain’t into that, we don’t give a damn

if you’re swedish and you don’t live under a rock, then you probably know about looptroop rockers. i hung with embee, the DJ/ looptroop producer for a couple of days after looptroop played their last show of their USA tour at the highline ballroom with cunninlyguist, grieves with budo, and tunji. the show was ill and everybody in the crowd was feeling it. especially a couple standing close to me who got hassled by security because they were about to bump uglies right there at the show. i might not have been conceived at a looptroop show, but that night my appreciation for looptroop rockers was born. embee not only rocks the looptroop sounds, but does his own thing as a solo DJ which won him the swedish grammy award for best hip hop or soul release of 2004. i heard rumors of more good things to come – so be expecting.
