what you're missing...

The reason there hasn't been content up here for a week or so isn't that there's nothing going on in the world, or in my life -- it's just that what I'm doing is staggeringly boring and self-involved (painting doors, building shelves, back and forth to the hardware store...etc), plus it warps my sense of everything else going on.

Finally, since 2002-03 I've been anticipating the summer of 2006 and the hotel workers campaign, which I'm now lucky enough to be involved in. Until we settle a contract in San Francisco, I won't be able to spend very much time at all on stuff that isn't my job, new house, or new marriage. I can't really offer many intimate details of the campaign, and I've already written plenty about the broad issues at stake.

So, like Tip said: hold tight.

Captain of the poets, i'm the #7 pick
Lick, lick, lick boy on your backside
Lick, lick, lick boy on your backside
Listen to the fader, shaheed lets it glide

why quoting "oh my god?"

and more important, i think you picked about the most homosexually suggestive q-tip lyric available.

although it's (i guess) still better than "i learned how to build mics in my workshop class."

oh my god that sucks.

anyway, for folks reading the comments, the song i was originally referring to is "hold tight" by slum village.

I like oh my god more. Just be glad i didn't ditch 'tip altogether and go with "I like my beats hard like three day old shit," which is maybe the best Phife line ever.

What the fuck is up with the NY Hotel settlement?
