DIGGIN' DEEP: GROOVE B CHILL

Bought Groove B Chill's Starting from Zero from a bargain bin about a year ago and finally opened it up and listened to it in its entirety yesterday. This thing is a col' relic of hip hop's yesteryears. Anchored by production from Prince Pawl and Pete Rock, you'd be hard-pressed to call Starting from Zero a fluke. It's actually pretty slammin'. But Zero, unfortunately, didn't age very well. The delivery and production is really dated so beware, but whatever, you'll probably find it for $.99 so, for the sake of your health, skip on the Milk Duds, buy Groove B Chill and shake your ass off. Geez, just checked SoundScan for Groove B scans and it looks like only 309 CDs since its release in 1990 have been registered at Soundscan. 950 cassettes. That'd make total scans since 1990 have reached only 1,259 units. Find it, buy it. It's one of those rare hip hop records (like KMD's Mr. Hood) that just col' rocks the bells.

Lubbock's Little League team rolled again on Sunday against Chandler, AZ, 6-1. Yeah, those boys play some bawl. Ancell struck out 11 and hit a towering home run while Arredondo hit two homers as the Lubbockians (or Lubbockites) pounded a team that hung 16 runs just the day before in a victory over one of those other teams. Betta believe it. These dudes are on fiyah.

Tropical Depression Erin really whooped up on Oklahoma. Once she became depressed, I really thought that she would just hang around and bum everyone out, but not do much damage, but girl took a hard right in Abilene and bee-lined toward Oklahoma and put it down.

The Boston Beard is getting thick. It's thicker than a Dr. J afro at this point. It's like wearing a sweater on my face. The thicker it gets, the more evident my greying becomes. I'm not necessarily scared to go grey, but if it would go grey with some sort of symmetry, it'd be nice. It looks like I missed my mouth with a fork-full of egg, but just on the left hand side. I think it looks like the Virgin Mary, but I'm keeping my mouth shut. I don't want to alarm the papparazzi. Boston trip happens in t-minus 11 days. Oh yeah.

The coolest kids in band belonged to the drum line. They got all the honeys.

In the dream he also comes down the stairs very rapidly--so rapidly that, according to his own distinct assertions, he hardly touched the individual stairs, but rather flew or slid down, as we used to say.. His departure afforded me relief. . William! he screamed, he is running away with us; we shall be dashed to pieces! Can't you get forward and cast off that line? What do you mean? cried Podington, as the boom gave a great jerk as if it would break its fastenings and drag him overboard.. As the squire passed ahead of the deacon she was stirred by a noble resolve...
