I had a lapse in judgment last night. It was around 11 at the union square L train stop, for those who don't know NYC this is one of the most crowded stops in the city. I was coming home from a long night of sparring, I was sweaty, bruised, and one of my eyes was almost swollen shut. All I wanted in life was to go home - take a shower and goto bed.
The L train slowly approaches the station, about 7 packed cars pass by me until the train stops. Miraculously the doors open in front of me to a completely empty train - here comes my lapse of judgment. I enter said vacant train thinking some heavenly being was smiling down upon me. The doors closed.. Am I really the only person on this train? I look through the train window at the car next to me, a group of people are just staring at me seeing what my next move would be. I look directly to my right and see the largest stinkiest pile of throw up I've ever seen in my life. Now comes the longest 60 seconds of my life between stops. At the next stop I exit as quickly as possible and run to the next train - everyone on the train is staring at me perplexed by my lapse of judgment. I had to comment... I gazed upon the onlookers and proclaimed "I made a huge mistake..." Now I fucking KNOW not to get on an empty train - I've been conditioned for it, it's either a homeless dude who shit and pissed himself or vomit.
In other news: HOLY SHIT THIS BAND.

I've been stagnant for days now. Just one of those periods in your life where you find solace just staring at the ceiling and watching the days pass by. This album is great for those times - loneliness walks hand in hand with a rich mix of instruments and soothing melodies.

New Big Boi album? Sure why not. I have to say I love this track - I don't think it reaches its full potential but I love it. What can't I stand about this track? I'll tell you thanks for asking. When whatever amateur producer cuts/mutes the track in succession at around 3 minutes. Are you serious? I was doing that bullshit when I was 16 DJing at raves - you're full grown professional musicians and sound technicians.. act like it.
In other news: I found myself appalled today in the train station. There I am minding my own business when I see a woman shoving herself through a crowd (because her destination is way more important than everyone else's), when she finally emerges through the crowd I get a full on view of said pusher. She's wearing one of those full body sleeping bag with arms jackets, head to toe puffy sleeping bag. I found myself trying to figure out if I was looking at a human being or a worm with a wig on. If you search the archives you'll find my rant about wearing pajamas to the airport - this most certainly runs along the same vein. Moral of the story is don't treat the outside world like your living room because someone might mistake you for being a bug and then blog about it...
