I bought a new hat from Value Village today. It's a cross between a cuban military cap, a kangol flat cap and what I imagine Holden's hunting cap looked like. Could there be a cooler hat?
The ill mcenroe jam last night was really fun. Yy and Gumshoe have stepped up their game. mcenroe was working the crowd into a frenzy. I love watching people get so excited! (It excites me, which in-turns excites those around me - positive vibe feedback.) The talent that exists in the Winnipeg underground hip-hop scene blows me away. For an example of this, download Icis Nizz's promo album. Him and some friends kicked off the MCing last night and I was very impressed. On a side note, I went to my first scratching lesson today at the Graffiti Gallery. Dj Brace (the instructor) is hella dope.
"The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder, no longer marvel, is as good as dead, and his eyes are dimmed." -[from, "The World As I See It", Albert Einstein]
Albert knew what he was talking about. I've said it before, but I think more and more people are dimming their eyes. Comfortably numb. So I propose the following mission for all of you:
Plant Wonder Sparks around your home town (or where ever you happen to be). What are wonder sparks, you may ask? Well that's the best part... The answer is: "anything". Anything that will stimulate the sense of wonder of your fellow man. Paint pictures on the sides of garbage cans, plant trees in strange urban locations, leave poems on the tables in the lunch room, ponder strange philosophical concepts with the other people in the checkout line at the grocery store. You get the picture. Now get out there and create some sparks!
