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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
