It's time for...

...Big ups' to my home state, the ever so beautiful Minnesota. Ah yes, Minnesota where the first snowfall of the season doesn't happen until there's a nice sheen of glare ice on the road. Uhn-huh!

I kid. I really do love it here. Atmospheric conditions are usually interesting, and Atmosphere rapping is usually spot on:

Atmosphere: Shhh - hidden track from Seven's Travels.
Since it's an hidden track, I made up my own name for it. Enjoy!

Nice shit, Matt. Reminds me of "I Left My Wallet in El Segundo"; a band whose name I don't remember...

You make Minnesota sound like a cool place to live. Sounds cool to me.

I couldn't have ordered up a better place. As long as you can handle the Minnesota accent (have you seen Fargo? Yeah, like that!) But I grew up with it. It sounds normal to me. Ya know? You bet'cha!

I think the main reason Sarah Palin grated on me so much is that she just played up that 'dumb hick' accent so much...

Oops, onto politics. Time to check out!

Ha! Yes. Fargo was a great film. Let me tell you, these open spaces beat the hell out of the shithole which is here in Glasgow. It suffocates...

ib: the song is by A Tribe Called Quest. I actually played the song the other day for my students, claiming early hiphop cred. And yeah, I can hear it here, too.

Matt: what, no sidebar love?

ib said...

A Tribe Called Quest! Yes. Thanks, Bowhowdy.

Howdy, boyhowdy. Thanks for stopping by! I've got CLD linked now. Thanks for the heads up.

I've been following the news over on your blog, so I'll change the link to your new address whenever the big switch happens. Best of luck!
