Event x 6.18.10 || Tingbudong…

Awesome Event

The Misadventures of Emcee Tingbudong, an exhibition showcasing Hip Hop influence on Beijing culture, and how it has manifested its own following. Dope event, inspiring art, and interesting folks. I wasn’t blown away by the fact that Hip Hop has reached cultures out of its own birthplace, because unlike most genres Hip Hop, the whole culture, is a movement all people no matter color or creed can relate to. I was left open because the one who put the event together,  Jamel Mims, took his time out to explore the culture and spread knowledge to us.

The whole event was inspiring. To venture out of your comfort zone and explore other regions of the world that have the same intense interest in the culture you were raised in. Millions of miles away. An awesome achievement.

“The ethnography sheds light on the process of sub-cultural transmission—challenging a politics of imitation with a politics of conversation. They aren’t simply copying what they see in American hip hop. There is in fact an intercultural dialogue going on, if we only dare to listen.” –Jamel Mims, artist

My “L”

Looking at my blog status while I was on an unexpected, and unwanted hiatus (more on that later), I kept a steady stream of readers checking in on my page, and just scrolling some post.

Today though, the day I get BACK my charger, well a new one altogether I see that I had low views.

SMH No Bueno

AT ALL.

Basically I have a Mac-Book that I do all of my work on, thing is the battery is dead. So without the charger Luv (thats his name) won’t work. The charger somehow got damaged this weekend (bad ass lil kids) and I was forced to suck it up and explore the world. Which in a way was good for me. Did a lot of walking, thinking, and analyzing. Came to the conclusion that I can be everything I say I am, and no one’s going to hold my hand and show me the way. Its time to man up and go get it. Nothings handed to you, and ain’t a gottdamn thing free.

So I’m back on deck.

Full Force.

The idea for the mixtape just came to me as I wrote this so be on the lookout for it no later than this year. THIS YEAR.
