I had a really great Sunday.
This is the BEST PHOTOGRAPH.
Left to right, that’s Maestro Fresh Wes, Young K, and Shad.
CANADIAN RAP ROYALTY.
I wish I hadn’t had to work during that amazing show, obvz the hip-hop highlight of Ottawa in 2012.
I’m nearer to the camera, but I’m actually hyping Young K in this photo - she is the main event.
She was performing “Juicy,” and a technical error from the booth dropped the beat out in the middle of the first verse - a sound effect dropped to underscore “blow up like the World Trade” knocked out the beat; perils of Serato I guess! - but she didn’t drop a word. The crowd was all rapping along, and I beatboxed to help out, then the crowd started clapping to keep the beat steady, and then DJ So Nice* scratched the track back in and it was allllllll good.
And if you don’t know, now you know.
*So Nice felt really bad about the mishap and offered to let Young K go again (which was extremely gentlemanly of him), but honestly it couldn’t have gone any better. Everyone was happy with the outcome.
Today I woke-up to a phone call from Nolely-Nole that he had just gotten off the Greyhound from Montreal and he was in Ottawa and coming over. Amazing.
I spent an hour trying to update his OkCupid to make it more hip-hop and feminist. (aka to make it more like me)
Then he found the hat Audra ordered me from Lithuania for my birthday and Percy had to take our picture.
Nolely is newly single and amazing, ladies!

Playing Def Jam Rap Star a few months ago, with famous Eden representing in cat ears! Young K has started a tumblr of sexy people wearing animal ears, so… pretty much… go for it!
(and she’s welcoming submissions - especially ones that increase diversity in body type or skin/hair colour/type or gender presentation or ANYTHING, as long as the subject of the image is (a) wearing animal ears, (b) sexy, and (c) not obviously from anime.)
Found this photo of me and K-L from a few months ago, and after marveling for a hot minute at how good looking we are, you know what I realized?
As much as I like my barber, I am really letting him get away with murder in terms of making my hair dyke-y enough. I need to be SHOWING MORE SKIN.
Come on, son!
