There are highways that connect highways to highways. If there’s not a separate highway in the middle of your current highway then they’re building a highway either below or above that highway.
This is kind of awkward. While attempting to summarize the marijuana prohibition debate following full-scale legalization in Colorado and Washington, Ohio’s Dayton City Paper accidentally proved how it’s almost absurd to even call this a “debate.” One DCP staffer was supposed to argue for and one against legal marijuana.
The only problem? They couldn’t find anyone who disagreed.
I feel the NBA is like wrestling, two years before they admitted it was just ‘Alright. We’re fake fighting but we’re really hurting each other.’ Then everyone was like ‘Alright. Cool. We’ll go with this.’
That’s what they should do in the NBA. Just go ‘Look. They’re really playing the games but… ya know… We gotta make sure certain teams get to a certain point in the playoffs so we can get the ratings we need so we can all get our money.’
The first ten minutes of the new season was incredible. Joan’s and Don Draper’s intro were both a great combo of camera work and acting with a tone setting soundtrack. The same at the end where Don is left on the balcony. This show is quality all around. Kinda sad it’s the last season but I’m blown away at how the show has evolved.
I’m from here. This video interviews my Barber as a kid (Legrett), who was right next door to the bar. My mother used to drop me and my bro off there for hours as she did her thing and we got our cuts.
Funny thing is, my generation is already starting to make our mark on the city. A childhood friend opened up his own barber shop the next block over. Whenever I got out, I either stop here or drink down the street. Its a small place but I still have hometown pride.
Yeah Illmatic came out but there were crazy classics that year too.
Jeru: The Sun Rises in the East
Biggy: Ready to Die
Gangstarr: Hard to Earn
Method Man: Tical
Artifacts: Between a Rock and a Hardplace
Warren G: Regulate
Coolio: It Takes a Thief
Redman: Dare Iz A Darkside
Beastie Boys: Ill Communication
Keith Murray: The Most Beautifulest
Boogie Monsters: Riders of the Storm
Craig Mack: Funk The World
Lords of the Underground: Keepers of the Funk
I had everyone of these. Coolio had his Funky Ride success which tainted the status of his album. He was a legend before with WC but he blew up. The Beastie Boys messed critics up who said they were no longer relevant.
Outkast’s first album was not ATLiens it was Southernplayalistic and it was incredible. The Boogie Monsters were the underground version of Digable Planets (Blowout Comb was also ‘94) in some respects. People like Jeru, Redman, Common, all did what they do that makes them great that year.
My favorite album though was Gangstarr’s Hard to Earn. Preemo killed it on Illmatic but he was on a different level entirely with Guru. It’s forever my favorite Gangstarr album.
