    Nice book stack — That Tricia Rose is really disappointing though!

    Thx. Working texts for my spring course syllabus. Using a small snippet from Rose about radio/media consolidation in the 90s/00s. Haven’t read the whole book, but my impression is that it was written for a particular (general/educator) audience, so maybe that explains your disappointment?

    Not sure what happened to my last comment.
    I like the green kermit kermit thing on the rocking chair in that one pic. That MAKES the shot for me.

    i’m not sure what happened either =( this is the first i’m seeing.

    that kermit-looking thing is a beach towel that nico uses. you have to see her in it. irresistably adorable!

    Well, I LOVE the contrast- you’re looking so male and serious (facial hair, V eyebrows, no visible smile) and then there is that THING. Kinda like my hugely muscled hairy squareheaded testosterone efreak of a husband (he’d take that as a compliment) being caught with one of the Barbie’s he collects for the girls.

    Men can look and act so hard, but then you see them with their little ones and get a glimmer of the soft mushy parts. PLUS, its a side of masculinity we need to see. Big old serious man not as monster, but as protector.

    Rose said in class that it’s “hip hop for the masses.” Explains a lot. She also said she would like to stop teaching hip hop.

    Tricia’s been saying that she’d like to stop talking about hip-hop for at least 10 years now. I’m not sure what that says about this book, or the state of the academy / academic publishing industry / hip-hop.


I'm a techno-musicologist, internet annotator, imagined community organizer.

I left my <3 in the digital global, but I reside in Cambridge, MA, where I'm from.

I represent like that.
