Trivia #02

Both RZA and GZA are vegetarians.

Last trivia post people asked for proofs, well this time I bring you proof right here:

“We not only capturing a song, we capturing a moment, that’s a moment in History, and that’s what songs used to be.”

I’d pay really good money to see the 36 Chambers show, unfortunately not as much as required to go down to the US of A. Anyway the video speaks for itself and delivers good knowledge ’bout the Wu.

O ALFAIATE LISBOETA

“(…) A nossa indumentária carrega consigo um conjunto de signos e símbolos que, goste-se muito ou pouco, serve de plataforma de comunicação com quem nos cruzamos.” @ O ALFAIATE LISBOETA: O casaco desportivo

Found this post in the middle of a research for my final event at Restart and instantly felt compelled to mention it over here.
Do a favor to yourselves and click on the link after the quote. Brilliantly written, showing a sense of charm and culture not often seen online.

The post was a grabber, and the blog now has my attention…not saying I’m gonna be a close follower (fashion is probably at the bottom of my list of interests lol), but I think at least it’s worth a weekly check-up.

Got in touch with the work of Ross McDonnell on a late night browsing on Booooooom and instantly fell in love with it. I’m not that much into photography but from time to time I really get amazed by it.

Please visit the links below and try to catch the same feeling as I did.

More pop than hip-hop actually, and too much similarities  with Lupe Fiasco, but still very nice.
Paramore is is also nice, don’t hate on the girl just cause she got her boobs on twitter ahah.

JR #01: NEVER FAIL & PxHxT – Split 7″

Two different bands, the same record, 6 new tracks.

There was no better way to officialy start a record label intended to have no barriers, than with a record that mixes styles, sonorities and messages. NEVER FAIL and PxHxT prove in this record that what matters the most is people, leaving differences on the background and uniting themselves with Juicy to release a threesome record, but with a single idea. Crossover baby.

Cool stuff, pay attention to the info in the beginning.

Bulletproof vest

Once upon a time, I made a post about being fired.
For those who ain’t gonna bother to click on the link, one of the phrases that ended my post was “Bottom line: I’d rather die on my feet than live on my knees.

Tonight, I visited Ana’s blog almost randomly, and a “giant” text caught my attention while browsing through her latest posts.

The text was Ana’s way of recovering her dignity and expose a fucked up situation. In a way, I related to what happened to her, and while reading her words I noticed the same pride and the same ambition that I had on my own post several months ago.

Not everyone has to be strong and mentally focused on everything they want to achieve in life, but let her post serve as a wake-up call to everyone enduring tons of shit everyday just to get some lousy euros at the end of the month. Don’t you ever let anyone treat you as an inferior human being just because they are your hierarquical working superiors. Fuck that, no money pays for dignity or happiness.
