Today’s SOTD is perfect for a Wednesday. It’ll ignite your day and push you right over into Thursday. Here’s Modeselektor featuring Flohio and Wealth.
May our ink flow and may our stories be told the way Snoop Dogg does it in this song. Here he is again with Round Here. And… go!
Here’s today’s writing incantation.
May we write for miles, until it’s suddenly dusk. May we read like words are food and we’ve been starving, lost for months in the jungles of Burma. And may we edit carefully.
Ever since I wrote “upside your head” in yesterday’s post I’ve had The Gap Band’s 1979 hit “Oops Upside Ya Head” stuck in my head.
Here’s a pimped up version of that song. Which brings me to one more incantation: may we write with the confidence of Snoop Dogg.
We’re clearly overdue for some classic ’90s hip hop. Here’s Mobb Deep and a song that never fails to give me chills. Filing this under survival for a survival-ridden day. Getting the rest of my sleeve shaded in today. Kids, a word of advice: don’t get your ink done in your 50s. According to my tattoo artist our pain tolerance decreases with age and I think I can testify to that… eep.
So yesterday was my birthday. The sun shone all day. Up my sleeve was my still healing sleeve. On my head was a fresh barbershop fade. My button down shirt was crisp. Friends took me out for lunch. I ate a lot and laughed a lot. It was a good day. One of those days where this classic ‘90s song comes to mind.
And yeah, I’m checking all the buckets for this one. Love, survival, sobriety. I’m feeling it all.
