Hannibal Buress: It's A Rap : NPR

So, for my 1,000th POST!!!!, I wanted to post a link to the episode I was on with Hannibal Buress since it has gone live on NPR and on iTunes (I believe). My portion was #6 It’s a Rap and, well, with everything edited and cut, it sounded fantastic! There was also a Vulture blog clip that stated Hannibal “schooled” me in old-school rap (HA, please), but since this is live now, a couple of thoughts:

  1. Hannibal was absolutely hilarious on and off stage. We talked a little bit and he seemed to be both a really cool and chill guy… but also, absolutely high off his behind.

  2. The portion was edited to remove the only song I got wrong (Missy Elliott’s “Work It”). Thank you, NPR, for making me sound smarter than I was, ha.

  3. About the Vulture clip, it was claimed that I was “schooled”, but then, got a last-sentence kudos about me sweeping the rap game. Then again, the headline “Hannibal Buress and affable teacher swept NPR game category” wouldn’t work as well. Also, I need to use “affable” in my everyday vernacular now.

  4. Also, it is now ON. Karaoke, possibly Sunday afternoon and so on from there, it is ON.

Thank you to those who made this happen and those who supported me there and afterwards, including YOU, who is reading this right now!

Ugh.

Sore throat mixed with artifact gatherings for the new teacher evaluation system mixed with apathy for said artifacts, despite them being due on Friday and just realizing now that most of them are only gatherable at school (UGH) mixed with a very crazy day at my school.

I’m not even tired, that’s so sad.

Ugh.

Oh well, two more days.

If you’re a baseball fan and you don’t love this song, you’re doing life wrong.

Can’t wait for June, SI Yankee games, and maybe a Cyclones game or two too.

Today has been quite an absurdly crazy day. In the span of one day, I have pre-ordered the new Samsung Galaxy S5, FINALLY purchased renter’s insurance, helped my team win its first softball game of the season (yes, I’m too excited about it!), and most importantly, acquired a new roommate!

Thank you all who were able to help out with the roommate search! Very few things beat getting a new roommate who is friends with someone you know already.

I am in Charlotte, waiting for my flight to NYC. As you can probably tell, I am exhausted. Hard to keep up with the bride and groom as well as all their friends, ha.

Thank you to Al and Chelsea for an incredible wedding and wonderful times hanging out. It was a blast, an absolute blast.

Also, thank you to exhaustive-wit for a fantastic Friday. Maybe next time, we could actually take a picture!

Time to slepzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…

Waiting to board to go to Greenville, SC for a wedding and to meet up with exhaustive-wit when I touch down!

A nap will be necessary, ha. 3:30 am wake-up? Ha.

This is my “way too early” face. En route to LGA. No sleep ‘til South Carolina!

Answer this pressing question:

Have to leave for a flight at 4:15 am.

I would get up around 3:45 am if I slept.

Should I actually sleep?

Here’s me with my baseball ticket. Blue Jays. Mets. Montreal baseball. Such a fantastic experience.
