So, this guy knows soemthing about waht's up obviously. Not quite sure waht the 805 stands for, but I bet it's soemthing pretty ballin' or epic.
Spotted this baller cruizin' down LSD, savin' soem gas mileage on Saturdei during a lovely Chicago foggy overcast, the fog had a ceiling of about 20-30 floors. Waht do they call that, stories or soem ish?
I wish lil Stevie Williams read this blog, ish even if Josh Kalis read it I would be zooo pzyched!!!
As of the end of this post I am currently listening to "Hate" by Olivelawn from the album "Sophomore Jinx" released in 1992 on Cargo Music.
I have a pistachio green Olivelawn 7" that has Neil Blender playing bass. I got back on 5-25-1990 at Rave records (I still have the receipt in the sleeve). It used to be a fucking rad record store next to The Metro in Chicago, IL.
The band also features O on guitar, he used to be a skateboard photographer in the 80's & 90's, then went on to form the successful band Fluf.
So, have you ever met soemone who only has one thing on their mind?
Whether it's Sex, Skateboarding, Music or even Donuts, there's always soemthing for ewerbody.
As of the end of this post I am currently listening to "Freedom" by The Frogs from the album "Racially Yours" recorded in 2000.
"The Frogs are this fucked up band from Milwaukee that play sugary sweet pop songs that are unafraid to fucking "go there." In fact The Frogs seem to delight in making you uncomfortable or tickled depending on just how tight your ass is...
...The Frogs, while being controversial, are often thought provoking, clever, and profound in their ruminations on race. Can you handle it?" - Cosmic Hearse
"Absolutely amazing songs, much more tightly composed than their improvisational stuff. Lots of psychedelic, folk, and glam influences, and a tripped-out lo-fi vibe throughout. The lyrics are NOT racist at all... you must remember that the Frogs write songs in character, and here they take on issues of racial tension, the history of slavery, and other difficult topics with surprising seriousness. They sing from the perspective of both blacks and whites, and their use of irony is challenging but ultimately very intelligent and complex. It will make you laugh, make you cry, and most of all it will make you think... It's more "Chappelle's Show" than "Amos & Andy," but unfortunately some people aren't willing to give this kind of thing a chance." - Electric To Me Turn

So, I had this dream the other night that I was hanging out in the Woods watching soem Deer grazing, chilling out when all of a sudden, this Horse just come trotting trough paying no mind to the Deer and they payed no mind to him.
I thought this was the most amazing thing in the world, the animal kingdom know who's on each other's side. Have you ever watched forest life? Deer could be chilling and a squirrel or chipmunk would be jumping around, and they would not even care.
I was in such amazement that I had to do soem minor dream translating to figure out waht mai subconscious was trying to say.
I think I will be doing this in the future, if when I awake from mai slumber and I remember mai dreams, to write them down just as they happened with no further embellishment or thought put in. Major and minor details, like colors of objects or things, night & dei, color of the sky, flowers dead or in bloom...etc. You get the picture, don't you?
Todei's moon is in the 3rd quarter of Capricorn, and is also an ideal dei for planting parsley, potatoes & radishes.
...and buying antiques.
As of the end of this post I am currently listening to "The Mix" by Astral Projection from the album "The Mix" released on November 27th, 1997 in Japan on Cutting Edge records.
So, on Friday the 2nd of April 2010 I came in to the Chi (pronounced "shy", not Chee or Chai, which is pronounced Ch-eye, not K-eye) to hang with soem bros and deliver soem 350 buttons for Metal Cakes.
I met Gordon & his daughter over at Delicious Cafe for tea (Yerba maté) and a S'mores muffin before leaving to go skate Wilson. The wind was pretty windy, but a lot of the people didn't seem to mindy.
After shredding for a few hours and painting a kitty cat & and alien abduction scene on Gordon's daughter's board, I had to go back to Delicious Cafe to meet up with Kathy from Metal Cakes to delivery said buttons. All went well and I had scone to go, and a coconut fizz. If you added 2 shots of Parrot Bay in that drink it would've been boss.
Then, I left to meet with the owner of Wellborn Clothing about soem new buttons, and just business in general, over some tofu Pad Thai & Pad Se Eu at Penny's in Wicked Park.
This was a landmark dei, the temperature, attittude and mai largest button order to date all set the stage for the night.
Everyone was about, we rolled the scene grabbing a few coffees and running into old heads along the way.
Paul, Rasa, Alison, Anna, Kelli. They were basking in the nightlife with a glow brighter than the amber luminescence of the urban tiki torches that line the streets. (streetlights?)
Upon further investigation of the Flat Iron friday art walk, we walked the maze of brush strokes, smiles, sculptures, resin and moar friendly faces. Marfa ran into his screen printer who, it turns out, has his studio set up in the old funeral home I once called home for 2 years. Small world.
As with all things, unfortunately the good too, they must come to an end. Settling our ambition for another night, for there are plenty to come, when we'll encroach the burgeoning scene once moar with the saem good vibes and warm hearts that were set in motion on that night.
I love Chicago.
As of the end of this post I am currently listening to "Sophisticated HIgh" by DJ Ellis Dee from the album "Sophisticated High" released in, I'm guessing, 1995-96 due to the track listing. Which has tracks from "Oceanic" by Cosmosis, "Cosmic Courier" by Mindfield, "Ganesh" by Sheyba, and "Sleepless" by Razor's Edge.
The Mindfield track being the youngest, I'm gunna say 1996. (sitation needed)
Ooh Ooh Ooh, "Future Space Travellers" by Prana & Athena just came on in the mix!!!
