Answers to questions Vol. 9



The beat goes on. Send more questions to phatfriendblog@gmail.com or leave’em in the comments right here. Again, I prefer random non-music related questions/topics but I’ll take what I can get.
Let’s do this.

got a question…
so what do you think about people who are so interested in your opinion about so random things like… food, traveling? isn’t it kinda weird….?

Good question. As a person who likes to hear himself talk, it’s awesome. Anytime someone genuinely wants to hear what you have to say , it feels nice. It is weird on some level as , who the fuck am I, really?
Whatever the case, I’m glad people do cause this shit is fun for me and it’s good to have hobbies.

How do you feel about Olivia Munn’s departure from attack of the show, and debut into prime time television?

Well , first off, that show doesn’t exist to me anymore. Nothing personal but , without Munn, I’m not watching it. Secondly, I’m happy for her success. I can’t say I love that show she’s on but I genuinely love her enough that it doesn’t matter. I mean, shit, she’s already so famous that there’s a backlash against her. That’s when you know shit is going well. On a side note, I follow her on twitter and she posted a pic of herself. I noticed from the background that it’s this bar I’m always at. Like a creep, I wrote her a weird tweet about how if I had been there I would have tried my best to not stare at her to grossly (or something like that). She never responded. Oh well.

what is proper public bathroom etiquette?
I’m somewhat of a novice with public bathrooms. I’ll pee anywhere but shitting is a different story. With that in mind, lemme see if I can draw up a few guidelines, as I see them.
1)Eyes up top.
Obviously, don’t look at another mans cock while he’s peeing. That goes without saying. But, it’s easily rule #1

2)Not everyone needs to wash their hands after peeing.
With all these toilets that flush on their own now, washing your hands after peeing is somewhat pointless. How dirty is the skin of your dick? So dirty that you need to clean your hands off? Assuming you didn’t piss on your fingers or touch the inside of the urinal, you should be good to go. I’m not saying you shouldn’t do it , it’s just shouldn’t be obligatory. I’ve seen people scoff at others who don’t wash their hands after peeing. Fuck them. Learn to piss straight and it’s not an issue.

3)If you gotta go, let it fly
Pretty much all the times I’ve had to let a huge dump out in public were emergencies. Otherwise I wouldn’t be there. When you first approach this situation , I think most people try to be coy about it and attempt to silently slip out the quietest shit known to man. This never works as it just tends to lead to a drawn out farting sequence that sounds like a grade school band tuning their instruments. So, the answer is just to have no shame and let it fly. Shit your brains out. You don’t know these other people. Let them bask in your horrific dump. If you want, hit them with a courtesy flush…or don’t. Again, you don’t know them. Not to mention, we’ve all been there. It may be gross to hear another person do it but , surely, we can all relate.

4) Don’t speak.
Word to No Doubt. When pissing or shitting next to someone, keep your fucking mouth shut. This includes cell phone conversations cause , i’m not looking at you. Maybe I think you’re talking to me. Public bathrooms should be treated like libraries. Keep everything to a whisper. Except for thunderous dumps. That’s out of your hands.

if you were to pick an 8 song track list from all of your solo work, what would it be?

It’s hard to say cause I’m sick of all the older shit to a point where I can’t really gauge how much I like it or ever liked it. What do remember is how I felt when I made certain songs so maybe I can go off that.
In no particular order:
1) The first snowfall
2)Sunday Seance
3)A better place
4)The strain
5)Farewell Spaceman
6)It’s raining clouds
7)NYC Bounce
8)Roll out the red carpet

That’s about right….who knows? You like how I took two from every album? I’m OCD like that.

So I had a buddy yesterday make a comment that I suppose kinda irked me since I’m seeking your response. I made the comment that we were prolly into different hip hop, and then said “hip hop is hip hop” I personally disagree, but perhaps I’m being pretentious. It’s like saying Aesop Rock, Blackalicious, Atmosphere, MF Doom, the Juice Crew are the same as FLOrida and all these new school fools. What are your thoughts? Sorry if this questions comes across as a waste of time.

There are tons of different types of hip hop within the spectrum. Sure, Aesop is nothing like Flo-rida but they do both fit under the same umbrella. When I was younger and a total elitist underground hip hop nazi, I might have argued differently but , the truth of it is, if it’s not all “Hip hop” then it’s all just made up sub genre’s. Just cause someone says they like hip hop but only listens to Waka Flocka and Flo-rida doesn’t effect the kinda shit you listen to. The same way the Strokes are as much rock and roll as Linkin park.

What are your thoughts on “Cupcaking/Cupcaker” Homies?

(note: I had no idea what he was talking about so he sent me the urban dictionary definition of the term:
1. To be in the honeymoon phase of a courtship or relationship; when a couple is engaged in public displays of affection and/or being anti-social by only paying attention to one another during a social outting with a group of friends. 2. When a guy or a girl chooses to spend time with a love interest over their friends. However, this term is more commonly used to describe men who become MIA (missing in action) after getting with a girl or getting into a relationship.)

First off, great term. So much to say on this topic.
Listen, we’ve all been in relationships. There’s no shame in showing your better half that you actually like them. And, especially in it’s early stages, people do get wrapped up in one another. They disappear into a cocoon of sex and take out food for a week. I get that. I’ve never been that dude , as I tend to wanna take long luxurious dumps and be alone for a bit every day, but I get it. So, as far as definition #1 above, I’m not even mad. Granted. PDA is fucking corny. Unless people are drunk, it’s almost always the girl initiating it on the guy , who would no doubt much rather just take this fiasco inside and getting down to business. But it’s part of the courting process and hating on that would be like hating on getting laid.
#2 , however, is a different story. The Term “chooses” is a peculiar one. Cause, while a man does like spending time with him girl, I find it hard to believe any man “chooses” to spend ALL of his time with his girl. No. This just kinda happens when the girls gets her claws in you. Keep in mind, this is not every girlfriend. Not even close. But , it is a particular kind of girlfriend. A needy and exhausting kind that breaks a normal man down to the point were resistance is futile. It get’s so bad that a dude can’t even go to a sporting event with his friends once in a blue moon or hang out for more than 2 hours at a time without having to take a long , invested phone call with his girl whose side he just left. I realize, this sounds very one sided and I can acknowledge that. The truth is, the guy in this situation allows this to happen. So, he’s just as at fault as the girl. It also should be said that some dudes are just as codependent as their girls are. They genuinely do need to be around their girls as much as the girls need to be around them. I’d say it’s rare, but it happens.
There is one beautiful side note to this phenomenon. When a dude enters this world, and vanishes from his friends for a year, while we may make fun of him and call him a pussy whipped bitch behind his back, he’s always welcomed back into the fold. That’s never an issue. Guys have an open door policy with friendships. Unless some bad shit goes down, no one is getting exed out of the cypher for a reason as stupid as “hanging with your girl too much”. Girls, however, are on some other shit. Not to get too deep into it but lemme try and verbalize this. Women have two tiers of friends. One is the top tier. These are the girls you’ve known forever and they’re not going anywhere. They’ll be at your wedding and your funeral. The second tier are the disposable friends. These are girls who, at some point, are “BEST” friends. They hang out together hard for a month. Go out together. Really, they are glorified party acquaintances. When a girl gets in a relationship, these are the first to go. They may hang around for a week or two but once the relationship gets at all serious they’re as disposable as a tampon to the wifed up girl. It’s these girls that really get the short end of the stick , when it comes to “Cupcaking”. But, on the bright side, you best believe that when they get wifed up, they’ll get to drop those tier two hoes just a quickly.

  1. Just wanted you to know that today’s blog has led to two different Chicago offices debating whether or not washing your hands as a guy when you pee is non-negotiable.

  2. Good grief Charlie Brown.
    Seriously there are dirty people out there, that after touching their junk should ALWAYS WASH their hands.

    Oh and I lol’d @ #’s 3 & 4.

    • Fuck that. My dick is clean. It’s no different than touching ones arm except , unlike arms, it’ always covered.
      Wiping asses is one thing (Of course you wash your hands after that) but touching your own penis? nah.

      • Amen dude. I come out of a public restroom with automatic-flush shit after peeing, and my girl who was waiting outside was like “did you even wash your hands?” (one of those restrooms with just the open door and you walk around the little wall thing, so she’d hear the sink. She’s a big hand washer.) So I said “No i didn’t touch anything, except my johnson” Her: “Why don’t you wash your hands after touching it”… Me: “It’s not dirty. It just chills in my pants all day. Besides, you put it in your mouth don’t you?”

  3. “but touching your own penis? nah.”

    your wang might be clean, but think of all the other nasty motherfuckers not washing their hands… you still gotta open that door! dick germs all over the door handle? no fucking way…

    easier to make everyone just wash your hands – takes two seconds.

      • point taken, but it is really just the time factor for me. hand goes from dick to door in less than one min… plus why NOT wash your hands? not like it is hard to do…

        but yeah, are there just as many germs on the subway in big cities? probably.

        slight tangent – but I’ve heard two of the worst worst germ spots are bowling balls (tons of shit germs in the finger holes apparently) and TV remote controls in hotels.

      • Yes, i am one of those assholes that always washes my hands. In public or any where else. Grocery store, record store, bathroom, bar, restaurant.. you name it. Germs Yo!
        And we’re all proud of your really clean gennies. BAhaa.

  4. Thats funny I just made a playlist for my job today and you picked 8 out of the 12 songs Of yours I picked. Also as far as sub genres of hip hop go thats a waste of time. I have two genres on my itunes, hip hop and other. Hip hop is everything from cam’ron to aesop. Sadly Tony you have been classified as other.

    • For real? You really had “roll out the red carpet” on a mix tape? If so, that’s awesome. That is one of those songs NO ONE ever bigs me up for that I happen to love.

      • that song and NYC bounce are two of my personal favs.

        the drums on roll out the red carpet kill me every time…

      • Yeah I put more Downtown Science on there because it has more lines about New York. Its being played at a restaurant in Gramercy and I need those lines to make my owner think it is less hip hop influenced. That song, Long Walk Home, and Cherry Picker were my choices from that album. Yo come through and listen to the mix 29th and Park son.

  5. haha loved the bathroom etiquette one.. What about public transportation etiquette? I find myself riding the bus way more than the train so like when im sitting in the middle of the bus and i have no obligation to stand up and let the old lady take my seat when the dicks in the front “reserved for elderly/handicapped should be doing that.. but i find myself doing it especially when its all women that are sitting around me and i see some people kind of staring like yo.. your the man.. get up and let her sit.. i find that its the young kids that dont give a fuck and just sit there when they should be doing the courtesy of getting up.. and people need to wear Deodorant ASAP when summer time comes.. any crazy stories from the train/bus/walking?? people dont even need to take a bus in NYC right?

  6. Bathroom etiquette #4 can’t be stressed enough. I’m sick of hearing rich corporate assholes on their cell phones while they’re dropping off the kids. I always make sure to flush the toilet right next to them a few times before I leave. If I’m feeling particularly bold that day, I’ll turn off the lights.
