уголок хип-хопа:

pimp c в составе хх-группировки ugk был подписан на лейбл jive, когда ему было всего 14 лет. со своим напарником bun b они записали несколько альбомов, стали легендами, а в 2000-х и сам pimp c записывался соло. но тогда же, в начале 2000-х начались неприятности с законом и в 2002-м он схлопотал 8 лет. pimp c освободился досрочно в самом конце 2005-го, успел записать материала на несколько альбомов, а летом 2007-го его уже не стало. в тюрьме pimp c пристрастился к сиропу, одурманивающей лекарственной смеси, которая так популярна в местах заключения. передоз сиропом и стал причиной смерти.

So this is a preview of what I THINK may be the actual cover for the STEEP INCLINATIONS vinyl cover (if I don’t decide to hand paint a more Roger Dean-type cover, which has been my plan for some time; maybe just the interiors), if I ever manage to have it made in vinyl. To be honest, I may have to to a double-gatefold, which will be even more spendy.

The track running times are VERY approximate. The fact is, some tracks will be shorter, some will be longer, and the total running time may climb to the point where I’m putting tracks from separate acts onto succeeding LPs. Frankly, I see this as a 3-CD job, approximately sixty minutes per disc, unless I manage to condense it down to two, which I’m sure even my proggiest friends would prefer. How to translate that into vinyl is another matter.

I’m just becoming aware that vinyl is becoming popular again, and I’ve always felt that vinyl LP covers are the ultimate visual medium for Prog Rock listeners (stoned or straight), short of making an animated feature film (regular feature films don’t seem to live up to it, do they?).

So there you have it: the graphic design for today is… and of course, I wasn’t paid for this job, either. Bloody cheapskates, those Etcetera boys. Can’t wait til they break up.

Happy Easter, for those observing. For the rest of you, have a lovely day. Thanks for reading.

Easter eggs

Since I’m not religious, don’t like chocolate, and I’m a freelancer Easter doesn’t loom large in my calendar as an important holiday. However, the weather has been marvellous this year, and people are in rare good humour, so there’s been a great vibe – plus the Galway Food Festival is on so the city is buzzing.

Although I don’t partake of the chocolate variety I do like normal eggs, and always buy organic. A lot of the time I get eggs that originate from a poultry farm in the Burren called Poulataggle. When I bought my most recent carton of eggs I found a surprise inside:

Easter eggs

It’s a small gesture, but that made me happy when I saw it (and secured my custom). The extra egg went to Martin, who eats chocholate.

Finally, here’s a line-up of golden, chocolate bunnies for the season that’s in it. The ironic thing is that I took this image in February, when they started appearing in the shops!

Happy Easter/Passover to those that celebrate it!

Someone asked me what I thought it meant, being "grown up"

Apr. 20th, 2014 | 12:11 pm

To me, it means taking responsibility for the things you can take responsibility for. We're not responsible for everything in our lives - we're surrounded by a whole sea of stuff we have very little control over - but there are things we can take responsibility for, and where we can, adults do.

It means knowing exactly where you really are in life - without lying to yourself about what you are really like - and then setting your directions from there, rather than from some idealised version of yourself that never really existed.

It means that rather than making decisions on the basis of wishful thinking, you work out what the cost will be of getting the thing you want and make a conscious decision as to whether that's a cost you're willing to pay.

It means putting in the effort to understand world around you as it really is, not as we wish it was, and doing what's necessary to cope with that. And, sure, trying to change it for the better - but from a place of knowledge, not assumptions and bias.

(None of this is easy, and nobody gets this right all of the time - I sure as hell don't. Adulthood is an ideal to strive for, not something you achieve. Oh, and it shouldn't stop you from having a damn good time and engaging in child-like fun along the way.)
