Geekin’ out on J. Cole

31 Jan

Some real spit during this conversation last month between J. Cole and Angie Martinez (Most kids my age loved Jenny McCarthey, but at 15, I was into Angie–Rap City ya’ll!!).

For the whole, a good interview, but I got a little annoyed every time she joked about the conversation being “too depressing.” Worth a listen though, if you don’t have time for that, at least check out the Letterman appearance he’d made the night before. For all the goofy shit that Grantland posts on its website, I don’t remember one mention of this performance. I guess it was not entertaining enough.

RIP Storm Thorgerson

For those who aren’t hip to him, he was to Pink Floyd what Stanley Donwood is to Radiohead’s cover art.

Great article on one of my favorite basketball players of all time.

There are also some great you tube links embedded within, including one of the best all-time MTV Cribs I’ve seen. I think it was filmed when he lived in the PDX.
