So the Blue Scholars have been stalking me. I think they implanted a chip in my head.
This video called Fou Lee is all about grocery shopping on Beacon Hill and MLK. There’s SPAM 3-pack, chunky peanut butter, saba for 69 cents a pound, little cans of mackerel packed in tomato sauce, disappointment in light rail, balut, chicken adobo recipe (mine’s better), cowsin Ian…
And then the philosophy: ” Be original. It’s unconditional.”
Seriously, that’s my world. It’s eerily specific to me. Forget my students and colleagues; some of these references would be lost on some of my neighbors. A few years ago they were rapping about getting marked to target a market they’re not even a part of; now they’re rapping about my grocery list. There’s even a street chicken up in there!
Oh, it’s devastatingly cool to be me right now.
One note for @prometheusbrown, you all better buy some green vegetables. Vegetables are a gift you give to your colon.
