graduation day

i graduated college today. and wednesday. well i actually graduated in december but i took part in the official ceremony today. and wednesday. the last four years changed the trajectory of my being. the people i've grown close to have influenced me in ways that i never would've anticipated. and i feel so lucky to have developed my perspective in the greatest city in the world. im gonna miss it all dearly.

i think the most important thing i learned can be summed up by an mf doom line (or ben folds, depending on what you're into): the more you know, the more you know that you don't know shit.

now on to new adventures.

i usually don't get sad when musicians die, but MCA was a personal hero of mine, ever since the first time i listened to the beastie boys as an awkward brown kid in middle school. in a weird way, i looked up to him, ad-rock, and mike d as older brothers. they were just so fuckin cool. id scour the net to watch interviews and live performances. id download all their shit, and then all the shit that they were influenced by, and then all the shit that those influences were influenced by. in high school, id make videos with my friends that pretty much ripped them off. in college, the first internship i ever got was for MCA's company, oscilloscope laboratories. i learned a lot there. fuck i cant believe he's dead.

my top 5 favorite beastie boys, uh, things...
