I have to be honest. I should have just pointed the camera at the crowd at this year’s Rock the Bell’s Festival at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California. I have never seen so many white people with cornrows. It was outstanding. Where do they all go when they leave the concert venue? Back to Pleasanton? Do they have to undo the knots and comb their pompadour back out? Or do they always have cornrows? Were they born that way?

Ugh, so many questions.

But instead of riveting photojournalism, I bring you some leftover shots that I forgot to put up a few months ago.

This is Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s son. He performed with the Wu-Tang Clan in place of his father, cuz his father’s dead. I don’t know his name. He probably doesn’t have one. ODB seems like the kind of guy who would forget to name his kid. It’d be funny if his name was Matt, though. But not that funny.

.

This is Method Man. I have a lot of photography friends, nerds, who would tell me all about how this photo sucks and about how much better their photo would look if they brought their $90,000 Canon EOS ID with a lens made of unicorn retinas. Well, that’s what I used, too, assholes.

.

This is A Tribe Called Quest. But I’m too pissed off at photography nerds to talk about a rap group. When I was little, nerds were different than they are now. Now, it’s cool to be a nerd, but when I was little, nerds were  drooling sociopaths who showed up to school in suits of armor and tried to probe girls with their wooden swords. That’s what David did, at least. One day, David showed up in a suit of armor and the next day he was gone. No one ever saw him again. The other day I saw a girl wearing an I Love Nerds shirt, but she was studying for a test at junior college. That’s like Justin Bieber claiming Crip. Leave it to popular culture to fuck up some pure shit, like nerds. And rap music. Ta da!

.

.

This is Q-Tip, from A Tribe Called Quest–my favorite group of all time. Never mind their shitty albums, like the Love Movement and Beats, Rhymes and Life. Before rap died a miserable death, they were the shit. Now they’re older, getting fatter and not nearly as interesting, but Q-Tip and Pfife are like Sonny and Cher in my book. Do you know what’s insane, though? I was just looking around on Facebook and I found a kid I went to elementary school with back in Boston. I think we were in fourth grade when I saw him standing in front of his apartment. I was across the street, really far away, so I thought I would throw a rock at him. Just to scare him. So I found a rock and threw it. The rock hit him right in the center of his forehead, split his head open and he went to the hospital. He ended up getting like 10 stitches. I felt really bad. But I also felt a little bit good because of my impeccable aim. One step closer to becoming a ninja, I thought. Anyway, the dude is now a Hasidic Jew. Beard and everything. He looks really nice. Trip out, Facebook. Trip out.

Snoop Dog. I don’t really give a shit about Snoop Dog.  I think he felt that vibe, though. I’m pretty sure he realized that people who really listen to music didn’t want to listen to hours of Snoop doing his bullshit pop songs. So for this performance, he performed Doggy Style in its entirety, which was really rad. If you remember, when Snoop first came out he was this little gangbanger who looked like a hungry-ass preying mantis. Now he’s just a parody of himself. From all the reports, Snoop wasn’t even a real Crip. He was just a scrawny weirdo who wanted to be in a gang. Which reminds me that I used to want to be in the Latin Kings. I knew a dude who was a Latin King and when I asked him if I could be in his gang he laughed and told me to go write a book. He called me a nerd. And then I thought of David, from elementary school, and how he wore armor and carried a sword that he used to probe chicks with. Man, that dude was cool. I wonder what he’s up to now.

    I like what you guys are up also. Such smart work and reporting! Keep up the excellent works guys I?¦ve incorporated you guys to my blogroll. I think it’ll improve the value of my website :)

  33. Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but, I’d like to send you an email. I’ve got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.

Trust yourself enough to take your ideas and turn them into reality. Believe in yourself and your ability to lead the fleet, not just to follow the other ships.”
    I guess if you can get Brian in here to comment three times you can get me to do it once.

  35. Along the lines Simon is talking about, I got a fair number when I spelled Tim Ferriss’ name wrong. Unfortunately, Tim Ferriss wasn’t one of them. This is perhaps because he has a Google alert on his name spelled correctly.
    Whatever, good post, blah blah blah. I still can’t believe you did a guest post here and didn’t tell me.

  36. I just let my community know I’m not an expert. I describe what worked for me and ask them what works for them and discussion ensues.
    Unless I am mistaken, isn’t “Don’t you think it might just make the difference?”

  37. You’ve been a very good teacher. Oh, and your warm thoughts and love always make me give you a special place in my heart.
    Yeah it probably isn’t the best strategy, in fact, the only way to truly swap your conclusion and opening statement is to write the post first and then simply swap them, otherwise, you will simply just be writing your post.

  38. As far as the dare, last month I wrote an article on my blog about thinking unconventionally and working your plan backwards (which relates to what I’m talking about).
    I think my conclusion would work better up top (just under where I tell people this is a series post) and I think probably my quote from Albert Einstein would work better at the bottom. What do you think? — you can click my name above to view the post.
