Also in memoriam, pitching great Rod Beck died Sunday. While he didn't do the bulk of his work as a major leaguer with the Red Sox, it would be the with the Red Sox that he would enjoy his last glimpse of glory falling out to the minors shortly afterwards before a brief stint with the Padres. Rod, sadly, had a pretty lengthy bout with substance abuse, he disappeared until showing up in headlines on Sunday after being discovered dead in his truck with no explanation. Sad stuff.
I've been out for a bit and I hate coming back with two deaths, but I'll get to more posting later. Went to Memphis this weekend for the Stax Revue which was just crazy dope. Maybe I'll find some time to expand on that. In the meantime, make sure you cop the limited run of the MF Doom album MM Food being released by Rhymesayers. It's packaged in scratch-n-sniff foil that smells like chocolate and includes a bonus DVD (which I'm watching right now and it's super-bonkers), a copy of the Food Drive Tour poster and a MM Food sticker. That's how you do limited editions. Thanks Rhymesayers for setting it straight.
Alright, I haven't shaved in ages so gots to hit that before I shuffle to work. Be good kiddies. Steve, got the email with the candy image. Much thanks. I'll get it up before too long.
