The Penguin Foundation is asking knitters world-wide to send them penguin sized pullovers
Once again there’s been an oil spill and PENGUINS NEED SWEATERS.
INT. A RECORDING STUDIO ON 34TH STREET IN NEW YORK DURING THE FALL OF 1996.
RZA is seated with his back towards a massive mixing board as his eyes scan the room. METHOD MAN adjusts in his seat as he flips through a worn issue of Rolling Stone. Conan O’Brien is on the cover. Across the room, sprawled out on a loveseat, RAEKWON is quietly snoring to himself.
GHOSTFACE KILLAH enters and taps on RAEKWON’s Timberland to wake him up. RAEKWON sits up to make room for GHOSTFACE KILLAH on the loveseat.
RZA: Ok guys. We made some good headway yesterday but I really want to get this track knocked out today. Did you guys finish your verses?
METHOD MAN: You know it.
RAEKWON: [groggily] Mmm…Yeah.
GHOSTFACE KILLAH: Yo Yo What’s Good. I’m ready for the booth.
RZA: Alright let me cue up the track so we can hammer it out.
[“THE PROJECTS” starts playing through the in studio monitors. RAEKWON physically recoils from the sound and starts rubbing his temples.]
RZA: Kwon. KWON! You’re up, man. What did you write about?
RAEKWON: Weed. Oh and about the struggle of living in the projects.
RZA: Cool. Cool. Meth?
METHOD MAN (from behind his magazine): Spielberg movies and the Red Hot Chili peppers. Also the struggle of living in the projects.
GHOSTFACE KILLAH: Check this out.
♪♫♪Suck my dick it’s the kid with the fat knob
I bust all into ya face, plus it come in globs
Quick get on your knees, with yo’ sweet pu-♪♫♪
RZA: WHOA WHOA WHOA. What the hell man? This is a song about the projects. Hell, it is even in the title. Do you have any lines about it or is it all just fucking?
GHOSTFACE KILLAH: Well…no…not really any lines about the projects. It is pretty much just fucking. I do end it with being scared that I may have contracted AIDS.
RZA: Fuck it. At this point, it still makes more sense than what ODB was trying to lay down. He was talking about jeeps and stars. Dude is fucking weird
So far, this is Olive’s favorite part of our new swing set.
In 1997, I was SO PUNK ROCK IT HURT (which means that I was just another 15 year old kid with too many Bad Religion cds) but I remember loving this song. Any time it pops up on shuffle, I love it just as hard again.
Sesame Street Live kind of went hard in the paint.
