  1. What defines 90s hiphop?
    I am digging crazy amazing gig posters from Methane Studio (Black Keys for the win).
    Full arm sleeve tattoos in wild colors.
    The weird resurgence at the high school I work at for neon socks and scrunchies (does it all recycle?) Listening to music by the album and not the song.
    Stay by Rihanna (not an album).
    Acoustic guitar and native persimmons.
    Campfires.
    Beards and plaid flannel. (this might just be Oakland, CA)

    1. what defines 90s hip hop? twas the golden age (or, the end of) so: tribe, de la, jungle brothers, brand nubians, pharcyde and the best of the beastie boys (imo). anything heavy on the jazz samples. but maybe I'm a chump for trying to define it at all.

      dig that weird resurgence at your high school, I have seen it here, over and over, never get used to it (yes I think it all recycles).

      music by the album? word.
      beards and plaid flannel? you just described my husband and most of portland.

      love your list, love love love your list, thanks for taking the time.

  3. all good things, such goodness. i always leave this space happier than when i arrived.

    let's see...
    my son's adorably scribbled stories
    fires in the woodstove
    my 2p.m. coffee and chocolate break
    dancing to James Blake
    curating a happy wall in the living room
    oversized sweaters
    our city market and their green smoothies
    making tiny collages
    watching the sun rise each morning
