  2. I havent dug through this yet but figured i'd share with this thread. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1OlXNyNUGwLCKUQ4alHf2ScKrZlNVoBi5uGPuM6wKmo8/mobilebasic?urp=gmail_link
  3. it's a slow one. I've started it a few times and honestly cant remember if i finished it or not. Theres a movie series that was done sometime in the last few years. its wasn't very well received but I enjoyed it - if you don't feel like reading it, maybe check that out. Theres a lot of hate around that book partially because to current political climate but I took no issue with it.
  4. Cooked some wings yesterday. Little hawaiian bbq sauce.
  5. sucker for westerns. really enjoyed Justified. Finally getting around to the books. pronto went fast. halfway into riding the rap.
  6. My dad bought a 64 baby blue impala 4 door. It was a tank/boat 17.5 feet long. Him and my brother were fixing it up around the time my brother was 17. I remember it being longer than my moms minivan. One day, my brother took me with him and some friends to a liquor store on the edge of town that one of their friends mom worked at so they could get drinks for the weekend. The owner was a straight up alcoholic so he hardly ever carded. It was like 3:30 or so cause we were out of school. We got there and dude was passed out behind the counter. Went home, got the impala, came back and filled the trunk with booze. Those trunks would probably fit 4 grown men. After that, locked up the store and the kid called his mom to come clean the guy up. Since we were all teenagers, I’m sure they just took cheap shitty liquor cause they didn’t know any better. That was a pretty good time.
  7. Heres one from college and one from like 5th grade.
  8. Here's my teenage hillbilly wu-tang story. Around the time i was in 11th grade they were going to do a show in Atlanta. This was right after the Wu-tang forever album came out and they were opening retail stores. My best friend at the time hyped it up and I was down. Well back then, there wasn't really a way, at least that we knew of to get tickets to a show thats 4 hours away. Atlanta was 3-4 hours away and my buddy had heard about it on the radio. The day of the show came around, we hop in the car and drive down early so we can get tickets and good seats. We get to Lakewood and the place was trashed. Wu-tang flyers everywhere. I look down and pick one up and the show was the night before. Today that would we have just said fuck it, mapped our way to Lenox or some place else. But being the boy scouts that we were, we only brought a mapquest print out to get us to the show and back home. Ended up back in the car driving home disappointed but we still had a good time. Looking back I can't imagine even having the money to get in. The whole thing was a complete failure but probably ended up better that way. Those days were filled with road trips not working out. When I was 16, I lived about 90 minutes away from Dekay's Skate shop. Since I lived so far away, and cellphones weren't a normal thing back then, I would get up early and drive down, spend the afternoon, get some pizza and be back before dark. The only problem was that a lot of times I didn't take into account the shop might not be open the days it was suppose to be open. Many times all that was dependent on what kind of parties had gone on the night before or if the college was out or not so many times I came back empty handed. Also think this was around the time Dekay was spending a lot of time in NYC so Shie or Ease would be running the shop. Thats actually where I got my first introduction to graffiti. There was some 12oz magazines for sale and posters on the wall and I asked about them. Being from a small town I hadn't ever seen anything like it. Most of what I had seen done with spray paint up to that point was shit like"Jimmy Loves Jane" or racial slurs. Anyways, Ease was telling me all about things and I believe he is the one that told me how to find the roundhouse. I don't think he ever expected I would go down there. Timeline wise, this was right around the time Samors was being painted. I think Shie was working on that wall but i could be wrong. The Ease piece that was painted there remains to be one of my favorite pieces by him. One time I went down for a skate competition. I wasn't sure of the start time so a sketchy guy i kinda knew a stayed over the night before, the kid i normally skated with wasn't able to go so he suggested i take this guy. He agreed to pay for half the gas and all food. We were so excited we didn't end up going to sleep until like 3am or some shit. we got like 2-3 hours of sleep and wake up tired as fuck. We stop at the gas station to fill up before making the drive, I ended up paying for gas because he only had one check on him. He convinces me to stay away we need to take some yellow jackets to stay awake - I assume all of you know what those are but its basicly over the counter speed for truckers. Looking back I'm amazed they sold them to us because we were so young but I guess theres no age restriction on that kind of thing. So we both pop two, chase it with soda and hit the road. I felt fucking awful the whole day. jittery as fuck, couldn't eat anything, didn't put it together why until years later. Later we end up at the skate shop. Homeboy buys something at the skate shop with a check. Whole trip I felt sick, the kid never actually paid for anything and to top that off I think his check bounced at the skate shop. Most of the time I would calculate how much money I needed for the trip down to the penny. I'd normally only have enough to get me down there and back. maybe a slice of pizza and a coke. First time I actually met Dekay, A friend invited me out for Chinese. I only had like 5 bucks on me but didn't want to pass up a chance to meet these guys. I chose the cheapest shit on the menu - Chicken on a stick, and thought I was good since it was like 4.95. Totally didn't think about money for tax or tip or whatever. In my defense, I hadn't really gone out many places at that time in my life without my parents so I hadn't ever really thought about it. Those aren't great stories but since old times were brought up, WuTang and I figured Raven would be able to relate to some of them a bit knowing the time period and people involved. I'm not sure that I have any photos from that time of my life. I would say my entire life I have been really awful at documenting things. I can probably dig some up from college this weekend.
