@Brian Yes, people in Brazil.
It was my first love too. I grew up with it all around Florida (stayed in NY a couple times.) The fourth season of “The Wire” kinda sums up my childhood.
I’m not into the spoken word style of music.
In fact, I prefer no words. Even when someone is singing, I get the lyrics all wrong. Fact. :D
hip hop is poetry
Don’t talk about my moms, yo.
On the relationship between rap and poetry…
Revelations in Braille, Respiration inhale. View
Nations fail, and shaking of a snake tail. Make due
Blazing swords, Trace the haze, praise the lord
Saving grace, lace your broad. She say she bored.
(^That’s actually a pretty complex rhyme scheme, and mirrors the tone of the Bukowski poem)
Sorry about your childhood hope you stayed in school and didn’t sell g packs. We need food
yeah the great ones can do things with words and build a intricte self refrental world that is great on repeated listens. Just remember that what you hear on the radio usually isn’t the best example of quality.
every week is mystery meat
One more video… The mother of them all
what no hook on this song?
The saga continues.
Who needs more than that?
People other than you, Falderal. :D
That song would’ve been like eight minutes if it had a hook after each verse.
Aside: Anyone familiar with either Conrad’s The Shadow Line or Almayer’s Folly?
There’s a black widow spider somewhere in my house. I am fearing for my life.
I can sympathize. I saw a weird, black, winged bug on my bedroom wall. I threw something at it, it flew around violently, and hid… I barely slept a wink that night.
…or maybe Dude is just the luckiest bastard in the country…
Btw, I saw you made a comment wondering if you should take a date to Moonrise Kingdom… Sure. I’m no ladies man, but take the chance.
[That moment when the ‘English’ captions for the film you’re currently watching on YouTube aren’t in English.]
spew, I hate ^that
Think I read both the Conrad titles, but I guess I remember Almayer’s Folly best. Why do you ask Black Irish? If you’re speaking of films, I didn’t see Almayer’s Folly, and have never heard of The Shadow Line as a movie. Guess I’m no help.
Tommy: Gonna try again tomorrow in the hopes it was a glitch.
Deacon: While my interest in Conrad is spurred by Akerman’s film, I’m asking about the actual novels. What did you make of Almayer’s Folly? Been thinking it would be a good introduction to his work, being his first novel if I recall correctly.
On another note, Shadow Line has actually been made into a film, at least twice. The one I’m most interested in is Franju’s La Ligne d’Ombre.
I don’t think there are many things better than watching Once Upon a Time in Anatolia….
…and eating elotes. Simultaneously.
Ben deactivated his account :O
EDIT: Whoops! Never mind, I was only looking through my “followers”. Yep, cougar boy is still here.
Hmmmmm. Did Ruby ever send him a message?? I’m assuming the deactivation means he is ok but just doesn’t need the distraction of this site.
Wait, which Ben?? The one I was thinking of hasn’t deactivated.
I’m about to watch L’Avventura, Tommy. Spare me some elotes? I’ll give you banana chips…
I can make you one dude. Homemade goodness. I love banana chips too. Yummy movie snacks.
I’ll order 3 dozen elotes and a bib.
Oh my goodness I wish I had that many. I crave them all the time. They’re so messy, or I make them messy, but I don’t care.
