since i’ve been back around the way.

this isn’t much of an entry, i suppose, however, i would like to take the time to throw this up there. nice lil’ video, even though the shots at lady opera were unnecessary, unless, she’s the one that did the firing.

i don’t really eff w/def poetry jam. poetry was ruined for me the day that sweet Nia said

“It is the color of light,
The shape of sound high in the evergreens”

the fuck is that? it didn’t help that i watched the movie w/an absolutely unattractive female. the entire time the film was on, i couldn’t help but think about how she (the lady in present company) was not Nia nor LNC. poetry has never recovered. not during any of these def poetry jam’s; not at that shitty house party Asante took me to where those skatin’ ass AKAs read complete garbage out of marble notebooks and sipped crappy wine while playing “I Never” in the dark. in the fuckin’ dark! (this is a story for another time); and not at philly’s five spot, either. during my recent trip home for a bachelor party, i found out that the five spot had burneded da fuck down.

five spot, i will truly miss you. i never expected to return and have the same experiences i did as a youth but i knew that i would visit you again. alas, it seems that this will not come to pass. and that’s a shame. as a note, to myself, and you dear reader, i will make sure to tell the following stories

  • viking style
  • mussels and chocolate martinis
  • drew, the diner and the drive
  • adventures in butterscotch fingers
  • the best perm ever, no seriously
  • double trouble, live
  • antifreeze, the fruity bastard, key lime pie, ping ping ping

anything else i remember will be dumped into “the five spot” category as well.
