Back when I was living in Columbus, Ohio my friends and I started a quote wall. Whenever a bit of brilliance (or otherwise) poured out of someone’s mouth, somebody would yell “Quote!” thus nominating it for Quote Board status. The quote then had to be seconded by someone (it almost always was), and then it would be written down to be forever immortalized on the Quote Board.

This is the modern-day equivalent of that classic piece of my past.

QUOTE BOARD:

“No pits in that cock. It’s all fruit.”

– Milan, 5/2/19

He’s only free after 7PM,

A Tribe Called Quest, and am now on to some middle-grade fiction with Thomas Lennon’s Ronan Boyle and the Bridge of Riddles.

Thanks again to Beth for the great gift!

Back to eating boring-ass American snacks,

We have the coolest friends,

…as I’m sure you can tell from the fucking Christmas tree in the photo, but big thanks to Grampus and Grandma Sue for coming to visit the kids back in, you know… December.

Now, a love letter to A Tribe Called Quest from author Hanif Abdurraqib. It is called Go Ahead In The Rain: Notes To A Tribe Called Quest.

To be followed by some YA fiction,
