Yeah We Like It Raw
My working definition of an industry party is an event where people sell both their soul and their dignity for free drinks. But the devil, he works in strange ways. Last night he had M.O.P. riding shotgun. Fiiire.
Five minutes in and poppi on my left is screaming "this is like a hardcore show". Five minutes more and "How About Some Hardcore" up rocks the crowd. If you don't know now you know... Hip hop used to get harder ever year. M.O.P. killed that. Their 93 shit is still the hardest. Ten long hard years and only New York could give them love. Nine hundred and ninety nine thousand short of mill.
Now they on the ROC and MTV is in the building. Put your middle fingers to the world and watch the crowd go to frenzy.
And yeah after M.O.P. destroyed the place some MC, Talib something or other showed up. Said he was from Brooklyn. We think he should go back to Ohio like the pretender that he is...

So things are slower on the blog front, both here and at American Dynamics. There are several answers.
The simplest is that its summer.
More complex is that I've just somewhat cautiously started grad school. And despite it being a tech slanted program it so far has meant far less time in front of my laptop. God bless.
Both answers are of course correct, but incomplete. More accurately we've been using summer as an excuse the my new found library access as an opportunity to shift into something of an absorption phase. I'm only taking one class so this really means reading lots and lots of stuff. Mainly in a long term search for a nomad economics, a non-metric, non-rationalist economics. More perhaps on this further down the road.
