ALONE ONE's blog –


Boston lost a legend last week. CASH/COZ, a big inspiration to me and my generation in  Boston graffiti late 80’s/ early 90’s.

If you’re in Boston tonight…

20 years ago… Digable Planets – “Pacifics”

“NY is a museum with its posters and graffiti 
If you’re in the city
on Sunday 
come check me”…

– “Pacifics” from Digable Planets

20 years after being released, this song is still one of my favorite hip-hop tracks to just straight up CHILLLLL out to.

Cool little animated video for “God Loves Ugly” by Atmosphere..

Dope lyrics. Feeling the beginning..

“I wear my scars like the rings on a pimp,
I live life like the captain of a sinking ship”

and the ..

“appears more clear in its simplest form,
nobody sees tears when you’re standing in a storm,
abandoning the norm, and handling the harvest,
measuring the worth by the depth of the hardships,
I welcome all the hatred you can aim at my name,
I held on to the sacred ways of how to play the game,
when the soldiers started runnin short on rations,
I began tappin the egg, to spark the hatchin,
make it happen,
and take this captain to the gallows,
I keep steerin us into an area thats shallow,
talkin to my shadow, he advised me not to worry,
he said I should  plant my tree and let it rise out of the fury,
so give me some light, a little love and some liquid,
I’m gonna creep through the night,
and put a plug in the spicket,
and when the water grows,
and the dam starts to overflow,
I’ll float atop the flood, holding on to my ugly”

Most hip-hop these days really sucks. But every once in a while, someone says something good..

“Yesterday’s history, tomorrow’s a mystery, today’s a gift.. that’s why its called the present”

– from “Revenge Of The Herbs” by Skitzophrenics (Boston/Cambridge)
