#INTERNET Ah, we're back! Like we said, we were just "chilling out" for like 3 years. Feels good to have the team back writing. Still us three: Chuck, Benjamin, and Virgil. Got new interviews coming up, and hopefully we'll be posting on a regular basis, who knows. We also interviewed each other, check: CHUCK, BENJAMIN, VIRGIL...

PERMALINK PAGE!

Here’s what’s up too!

I really loved Ben’s last post. Now I’m going to steal his idea and you’ll read this one first because it’s now on top of his. That’s what’s up. I’m already getting a little tired of traveling to speak - I need a trip with some friends where i can just relax and do nothing. That’s what it’s all about sometimes, finding a way to relax and not think about anything, and I do not mean watching TV. I recently rediscovered my old love for Dick Tracy. I used to collect little Dick Tracy action figures like crazy. Lips Manlis, Pruneface, Flattop, Mumbles, Influence, The Tramp…I used to have a yellow Dick Tracy raincoat/trenchcoat that I wore all the time - Ben had a good laugh about that. I called my mom today about it and she actually went and found it from when I was like 7 years old. Ha. I’ve been listening to NO hip-hop lately. I don’t know why, it’s starting to get boring to me. Just never feel like putting it on anymore. It’s all jazz and indie stuff these days really. Sufjan, Tortoise, Mute Math, Matt Pond PA…I know Ben has been listening to The Beatles a lot…get out of your box! The Office (American) is still the best show, really, of all time. Every day I care less and less about hype brands and the whole sneaker world. I know that sounds like a sin to a lot of you but I just do not care about fashion at all these days. I don’t even dress all that well, I wear flip-flops in the summer, and honestly wish people stopped caring about who has the rarest and freshest shoes on. Ben made a really good point in that last post. Let’s try to start being inclusive, not exclusive. What’s the point? Limited this, limited that. Boring. But hey - I’m gonna go to bed now, visit Holly tomorrow, and see some family. THAT is a good weekend right there. Grand Rapids next week! Then me and Ben are going to Barcelona in May for OFFF! That’s right! The Barcelliance….
