The Snowden Principle
I get an endorphin hit every time I open one of these up.
Ed, got link to the “baw wit da baw” with Busy Bee? You will need a discography page with links when this is all done so that we may all travel through the history.
The “Baw wit da baw” Busy Bee scene is building toward his epic battle vs. Kool Moe Dee.
Wow. They ACTUALLY LOOK LIKE THAT.
When I saw that photo, I had to make them my Tomax and Xamot. Forgive me.
So if I run up to sucker-punch one…
…the other will feel it, before they both come around to kick my ass?
here they are, briefly, in the trailer of A Film About Jimi Hendrix. their interviews in the full-length version are memorable for both their candor as well as their proto-b-boy mode of expression. alas, the full version is behind a pay-wall.

Thanks so much, Noah. I wish I would have seen this first, because it felt wrong drawing them with dreads, just based on the era.
hey, man, I’m here to help. and I was totally thinking “Tomax and Xamot” from the way you had them finishing each others’ sentences. pretty funny.

A print of “Out Story Thus Far” would be cool. Just sayin’.
Always the high point of my day! Thanks, Ed Piskor!

Yeah man. Read this interview with Mr. Hyde, where he describes Starski coming to school driving a 98. http://www.oldschoolhiphop.com/interviews/mrhyde.htm
I’m halfway through right now. I love that he worked a skating rink, one of my winter jobs is an ice rink monitor. Ice is the best. Also, I love that the come-ups for his sound system crew were measured not just financially but also in terms of having to carry equipment. One of the many reasons iPod jocks suck is that they have no fucking clue how spoiled they are in terms of laboring for their art. my gigs were like 5 crates minimum and 2 techs weigh like 50 lbs or something. help with gear was important to gig negotiations.
also, Pesco just posted the animated video for Cavern, peep it:
