GZA wears ArtChemist tee at Rock The Bells 2010. I think this is San Bernadino, CA from Aug 21. The tee says "WU-Electronics - We invented Serato". Which is an indirect quote that RZA made once. I thought it'd make a great tee and the Genius agrees. WU-TANG FOREVER!!!

Keith Elam a.k.a. Keithy E. a.k.a. GURU. Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal, R.I.P
I remember seeing GURU's amazing Jazzmatazz 2 show at Zellerbach Hall in 1995 at Stanford University. Small, intimate venue. Vanessa Daou was the opening act. His big brother, Harry Elam is professor there at Stanford & I remember seeing him there off stage proud of GURU, as he rocked the auditorium.
I'd like to think GURU is now "Above the Clouds" (one of my favorite Gangstarr tracks - listening to it as I write this).

I just got an email from Digitalgravel about some new tees from a company called "Another Enemy". I'm trying to figure out their designs... Disney/Animation lovers or dissers? I'm not sure. I went to check the link for the Little Mermaid shirt to read more about it and saw it is almost sold out - like only 1 of each size left. Crazy world.

Yeah, this is TRUTH! The above is from today's Yahoo headlines. I went to a for-profit computer trade school years ago. Most of the people in my class were twice my age and were only there because they just lost their jobs and figured it was the only way to compete for a better job. My parents made me go so I can get a good job right away.
Now, I'm no brainiac but I was like consistently the highest scoring kid in class, if that says something about the people in the class with me. But 6 months of sped up subjects, honestly no one learned anything.
After graduating with some certificate, I just took whatever computer knowledge I learned and tried to apply it to whatever job I got. I started at the bottom level office jobs and paid off my student loan as fast as I could.
I always hear of people going to trade schools and I wanna tell em it's a scam. At least for me. Thanks to the internet, the research is out there.

Just went to my first basketball game last Saturday. Was at Oakland's Oracle Arena. Warriors Vs. Pistons, score 95/88. Yay! We heard that parking would be hideous. So we took BART. Luckily the weather was good. Our friend was performing during the half-time show for Jazzercise so that's why we went but I was all for the basketball. The eating options were hot dogs, fries, fish & nachos. Seriously? The burger stands were closed for some reason. I had fish & chips.
Next door at the Oakland Coliseum, was Monster Jam Monster Trucks. We saw them ready to drive in.

A Stussy t-shirt of J Dilla wearing a Stussy t-shirt. Awesome!
Stussy and Stones Throw Records teamed with Raph Rashid's classic pic of J Dilla for a limited-edition Stussy Tee. To be released Feb. 13, 2010 in White and Black, available at Stonesthrow.com and Stussy locations.
I like this shirt. I read someone sayin it was the Best Dilla tee. I agree.

Got this from Gombei Bento the other night. It is fresh udon noodles served warm with a black soy type broth. It had chopped green onion, a little white onion and some shaved radish (I think). It was good. It is like a side dish. So I had it with a teriyaki beef & rice plate. I still don't know what Bukkake means.
