Inhuman Swill : Hip-Hop

Grand motherfucker

| No Comments

My apologies if you've already seen this. Months ago—way back in March, as a matter of fact—I conceived of a poem that would incorporate hiphop-style rhymes with science fiction storytelling and would be called (as I knew even then) "Grand Motherfucker." I would write the poem sometime over the spring or summer, then perform it at the September 4th science fiction edition of Tuesday Funk.

I made a few notes, but somehow I managed to not start working on the poem in earnest until late in the morning of, er, September 4th. I worked furiously for the next few hours, finally suturing up the last rhymes at around 5:30 pm. The show began at 7:30.

Better late than never! Here's how the poem went over last Tuesday night. Or perhaps how it went down. I hope you like it.

Epidode #53 of "ShunnCast" is now available, in which Bill combs through the dusty vaults of his cassette collection to unearth a musical gem from his missionary days that might more profitably have remained buried—"The Wenatchee Rap" by No Parking Zone.

I got the best Valentine's Day present from Laura. I couldn't wait to try it on and have her take a picture. (All I got her was a lousy iPod.)

If you don't know the provenance of this tasty truism, wake up, son, and smell the cupcakes.

Double true!

And speaking of the Chronic, I'm sure most of you have seen this already, but if you haven't, here's a link to Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell's "Chronic(what?!)cles of Narnia" video at the Saturday Night Live web site. ("Lazy Sunday," it's actually called.)
