"Do you remember the happiest moment of your life?""One time back in 73’, I went to see a show at the Village Vanguard by Rahsaan Roland Kirk. He was amazing. He could play three saxophones at one time. I went to his last set of the night, and I got there early and found him sitting at the bar. I went up to him and asked if I could join him on stage for a song, but he told me that he wouldn’t have the time. ‘If you change your mind,’ I told him, ‘I’ll be sitting in the front row corner.’ I told him exactly where I’d be because he was blind. Then right at the end of the show, he started waving toward my table. I got up there and started playing, and at one point he motioned for the whole band to stop, and I got to play a solo up on the stage. Everyone was clapping for me. I rode home on the subway that night feeling like a king. Feeling like I could play with anyone in the world."

First Moon Party

These ads for tampon subscription service, Hello Flo, are awesome. The first one, Camp Gyno, came out last summer and the second, First Moon Party, more recently, and holy shit. The camp one is great, the moon party? Fucking awesome.

Even though I have still not gotten my period, most of what I hear tell and perceive is that, like most if not all things puberty related on either side of the gender fence, it comes laden with embarrassment, confusion, and sometimes shame. But I love how this ad is all about changing that part of our culture, making getting your period something one could be PUMPED about. Not that one needs to be pumped about it, I don’t know, do you. Like I said, I’m still waiting on mine. But strange as it may sound, this commercial makes me want to have a daughter just so she can live in a world that makes her pumped about getting her period.

First Moon Party just makes me wish I was a girl cuz this short is so fucking rad. My ladies days? A vagician? The daughter and mom knock this out of the park.

Got hepped by Passion of the Weiss that today is the 10th anniversary of MF Doom's MM..Food (I don’t know why I don’t have this album) and it made me revisit this awesome video of Yasiin Bey, of former Mos Def nomenclature, quoting Doom lyrics and loving on the genius of the metalfaced villain. After all, why should I be editing and drawing poems when I could listen one of my favorite rappers talk about how awesome another of my favorite rappers is?
Don’t tell my publisher.

Sigh. Goddamn I love this.

Been playing with these new pens I got for my birthday, hepped to courtesy of Joseph Lambert and his always wonderful sketchbook. Inspired from one of the poems that may or may not be in my upcoming book, so we’ll see if a picture something like this one finds it’s way into the book or not as well.

"My name is Michael Hunter. I was diagnosed with leukemia in June 2013 & was told on June 11, 2014 that I only have a few months left to live if I can’t find a donor. Please help me with my biological family or a donor match! I was born in Columbus, OH 3/1/1985 at Doctor’s North Hospital and given the name Christopher Brown. Please share"
Michael is a friend, I’m asking that you all take the time to share this. He desperately needs a bone marrow donor and there is very limited number of African American donors. Without a donor Michael is going to die.
Michael was adopted and does not know his birth family. We know he has a half brother but have no information about him.
He does not specifically need an African American Donor but because of all of the things that factor into finding a match (blood type, dna tissue etc.) , someone of similar descent is more likely to be a closer match.
If anyone knows anything about Michael’s birth family or if you would like to see if you are a match, please privately message me. I can put you in touch with him and his caregivers directly!
We hope through spreading awareness we can either find his birth family whom he does not know or find a donor match. Michael lives in the Cincinnati, OH area. Please dont just like this or scroll past. Please share this! You could save his life!

Aesop Rock rocking a pair of open tongue hoverboard shell toes like he was bringing 2088 back. Still playing double dutch with a city brick and your eardrum, and it never felt better. That dude used the term gibbous moon.
