I would guess 60's
The bag man striketh again (though on a much lower level).
Yesterday I dropped by the GW that I'll be establishing residency at due to proximity in a few weeks. Anyway it was just before closing, and I didn't have much time to do a complete sweep of the place. Walked past the pile, and I mean pile of bags and stuff in the back of the store when this little guy caught my eye.
A peek inside at the tag... (Click to show)
Not a Billykirk by any means, but way stoked on this. Problem is, this sucker is dirty. As part of a costume shop's inventory, it was probably rented out on a lot of films. As you can see in the first picture, one of the snaps on the left is missing, but that's ok by me. They also seem to have retrofitted velcro tabs to the bag as well, which is pretty awesome since I'll hopefully make this a keeper/user for myself, and you can't see them with the flap closed.
How should I clean this thing? I can't exactly throw it in the washer the leather and all. Soap and brush in the sink?
Also the strap is too damn short, considering various options to lengthen it so that I don't loose the awesomeness of the original.
I've never been great at rote memorization of song titles, but I could probably approximately name 30-40 songs by those specific artists. How many Company Flow, J Dilla, Busdriver, Pharcyde, Antipop Consortium, Digable Planets etc songs can you name off the top of your head? Probably none.
More than anything, I come from an understand of underground music, whether it be punk, metal, hardcore, noise, or hip hop. It just so happens that hip hop beats hit the mainstream sooner and more pervasively than John Wiese noise experiments.
However, you have artists like Johnny Jewel contributing to Oscar nominated films (Drive) so the underground does gets through in unexpected ways.
Hip hop is generally about "look-at-me" lyrics and spitting game about raping women will get people to look at you. Earl's 18, he's young and dumb.
Youth makes music exciting and generally introduces the freshest ideas. Period.
Back in the days, we went to see Thrice. They opened up for Dashboard Confessional. We reluctantly stayed and witnessed some bros talking shit to the lead singer by calling him "pussy", "Faggot", and blah blah. The lead singer stopped the show and invited those bros on stage to talk shit into the mic. The bros didn't. So the singer goes, "Well, this pussy is going to play some music." Fucking awesome! Respect!
yeah people mosh pretty hard actually a couple kids got concussions and one dude broke something, I don't really subscribe to the "no moshing at ska shows" rule. Even though the bands themselves try to enforce it, like at a phenomenauts show I was at, they stopped playing until people stopped moshing.
the maxis had a guy yelling faggot at them, so the lead singer called the kid a homophobic little shit and procceed to grope his other male band members, it was pretty funny.
that is so sick, my goal in life used to be a skateboard artist for nhs distrobution (indy, santa cruz, ect) and follow in the footsteps of jim phillips their long term artist who was the first to put graphics on skateboards.
I guess I was listening to some terrible stuff like Reel Big Fish when I was 15. That hook is fucking terrible and his flow is worse than Mac Miller's. Just give me Earl Sweatshirt's next album and I'll be content. I know those OFWGKTA dudes thrift.
I know all the lyrics to every song on low end theory by a tribe called quest, but I also bump earl sweatshirt and tyler. I don't see why there needs to be such a division among music lovers, who cares if shit is old or if shit is new. There doesn't need to be a competition between different generations, progression is a process. Some new thing starts, and people imitate it, in the case of hip hop, one drum line was the basis for a huge amount of hip hop http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SaFTm2bcac . Now the large "young progressive crew" thing is big, with odd future coming on the scene a slew of similar groups have popped up like the pro era crew. shit is an evolution don't get to caught up in the times.
tryna keep this thrift related so I thought I would brag about the supreme hat I thrifted, it brought a pretty penny on the bay XD anyone else ever thrift supreme?
