With the success that you have received in the music world, it begs the question, What level or degree of mason are you?
I’m an orange belt in free masonry. Meaning, I’ve met the lowest level member of the Illuminati but I’ve yet to been fully hazed in. I’m hoping in the upcoming weeks to do that thing where you run up a ladder clenching a hot dog in your butt cheeks. I hear that’s the final step to becoming a full free mason.
Have you ever considered writing a book? I mean, who has the time for the kinda shit…but figuratively.
would you take the opportunity?
I can’t say I’ve considered it cause it’s never been a real option but I would love to do that. I wouldn’t even know where to begin with figuring out how to get that done.
I like writing but I also write this way for a reason. I’m a college drop out with very little knowledge of sentence structure and basic grammar. If spell check didn’t exist, reading my blog would be like looking at cave drawings. But hey, if any of you out there put out books, holler at the kid and we’ll get this shit poppin’.
Worst job you ever had?
When I was 19, I had just dropped out of College. My parents weren’t happy and I had no intention of going back. At the time, My mom was working as a social worker at a school for disabled kids. Somehow, she pulled some strings and got me a job there. It was a high school and some of the kids were actually older than me. I could go into a long-winded yet uplifting story about how hard yet fulfilling this job was but I’d be lying. While I do think it could have been that way, I was 19. I was in no mind-set to be working that kind of job. Basically, I would get up at 5:30 am (strike one), take the F train to the last stop in Queens and then take a bus (strike 2) , just to arrive at this madhouse full of kids ranging from slightly emotionally disturbed dyslexics to batshit crazy kids that needed harnesses to walk (strike 3 through 8). Again, My 19-year-old brain was not prepared for this. Because I was under qualified , my job was to give special help to this one student in particular. I was basically a less glorified teachers assistant. He had something known as Prader willi syndrome. I’m not 100% sure about all of the characteristics of it but he was highly OCD and emotionally childish. He ate EVERYTHING. In fact, he had a little bald spot on his head from where he scratched and made dandruff fall, that he would then eat off the desks. Worst of all for the kid was that he was never gonna age. He was pretty much just stuck in the body of a pudgy , awkward 13-year-old forever. I felt terrible for the kid but, also, he was a total asshole. I realize that this is entirely due to his condition but , man, I hated that kid so much at that time. His condition was one that made any good deed done to make his life easier completely thankless. He’d scream at me all the time and cry uncontrollably when he didn’t get what he wanted. It was awful. So, yeah, that job sucked. I’m glad I did it in hindsight, but it was completely brutal at the time.
How did this girlfriend of yours that must put up with a lot of crazy shit?
First off, very well put question…for someone from planet GRARGNON. Ba dum bum…anyway, My girl doesn’t have to put up with THAT much. I’m pretty mellow in real life and she works insane amounts of hours at her job so it’s not like she’s around me all day while I’m ranting about dumb shit (which I don’t do anyway, as much as it might seem like I would). To be honest, she almost never reads this blog anyway. I dunno if it’s for the betterment of her own health or she’s too busy or cause she thinks I’m an idiot. Whatever the case, it’s fine with me. She hears all this shit come out my mouth eventually anyway.
Yo Block, being a basketball fan, are you psyched that Melo’s on the Knicks now?Fuck the Knicks and their Melo-drama! Does this trade get them out of the first round?
These were two separate questions that I just made in to one.
It’s cool that the knicks got Melo. I think it will eventually lead to good things (other players coming to NYC) but they aren’t winning shit with this team they have now. No real center or even a back up and a serious lack of depth. They can make it to round 2 this year (depending who they play) but they simply cannot beat the elite teams in a 7 game series with the team they have now. Defensively, they’re terrible and I’m pretty sure no shitty defensive team ha ever won the championship.
What is the purpose of pinching a girl’s nose while receiving a BJ?
It could be the hopes of making her laugh so the jizz comes out her tear ducts or just being a complete asshole
What do you think of Dubstep? I mean the real grimy Wamp wamp dirty stuff(so the kids call it). Would you consider doing some music of this type that ties back into hiphop? Amp 1 and Bassnectar had a pretty good collaboration on a recent album but maybe that kind of stuff is a better one off…
I recently commented on this but I’d like to clarify. I don’t hate dubstep. I simply don’t care about it. In my world, (outside of random shows I play where dubstep is playing) it does not exist. The shit I’ve heard has ranged from loud and boring to slightly less boring and loud. I like some of the drums they use but the overall product just isn’t for me. I can’t really fuck with any genre of music that has one set BPM. Also, I’m old. I don’t go out and take Molly while dancing all night. It’s just not my scene. I feel like older people who try to cling on to their own social relevance by trying to keep up with every little electro music fad are kinda the worst.
