a couple of weeks ago, I decided to affirm my affiliation to the Bushwick part of my neighborhood. In other words, I shaved my head and got some wife beaters. It was a hot one today, so I was sporting a wife beater tucked into my pants, as is the fashion. While walking around in this fashion whilst listening to Bad Brains, I was trying to figure out what percentage was badass and what percentage was poseur. I think it was 55/45.
There's some graffiti on a sidewalk near my building. "Bushwick" is written in blue paint with "Obamawick" underneath it. I think it's kinda awesome.
In other news, I'm 25 now. People keep telling me either a) you're a quarter of a century or b) almost 30! I think they both mean the same thing.
I watched the East River fireworks from Dave's office on the 55th floor of the Empire State Building. It was awesome.
Also, I got a kitty! He's an orange tabby, about two months old, and kinda looks like Thom Yorke. So his name is Li'l Thom Yorke. I snorgle him mercilessly at every opportunity. One of these days I'll get around to posting pictures.
Recently I've been immersing myself in music, specifically Wilco, Soulive, LCD Soundsystem, and J Dilla (aka Jay Dee). Good shit.
