It’s early in the morning and I’m riding the bus home, since I work nights. I’m reading, because:
a) I like to read, and
b) reading is about the clearest way I can think of to go “HEY PEOPLE ON BUS WHO ARE CRAZY: I DON’T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT HOW AMISTAD TOTALLY BLEW YOU AWAY” without actually saying that or having a sign that says that.
Man, I love snails. They’re really cool looking and they just seem like cool animals. I like slugs all right, too, I guess, but snails are where it’s at. I remember looking up and it turns out that the shell actually IS the only difference between a snail and a slug. But, dang, the shell is so awesome. I remember watching on Square One TV once and they said that the ratio in a snail shell is the Fibonacci Sequence. I might be misremembering that, I don’t know. But I like the Fibonacci Sequence too, so I’m gonna say it’s true.
Isaac Hayes has probably been the greatest discovery I’ve made since my record collecting took a turn for the serious. Not being familiar with anything by the Black Moses I was blown away by the two songs included in the film “Dead Presidents” (highly recommended film!). “The Look of Love” & “Walk on By” have both been sampled and would probably catch any Hip Hop head off guard ? but these tracks are completely mind blowing on their own and after finding the mp3s I knew that I had to track down these records by any means necessary.
