A Top Mount Fuller an Absurd Hero is Born
Cards Against Humanity.
I’m a big fan. Well, I bought this.
It’s great. It hold all of my shit. But it holds something else too.
If you have it, open your box.
You see how I started to tear away at the top of the box there?
Do it carefully.
There’s something in there. What could that be?
There’s a card.
There is a card literally hidden in the top of the box.
But what card?
I fucking love these people.
I found out you can print out the entire game for free on their website a few nights ago: http://cardsagainsthumanity.com/
For months I’ve struggled to find the right words to fit the beats that I’ve made over the summer. Along with work, and a buffet of other problems to deal with, it’s been an uphill struggle for me to find the proper words to express myself. However, it turns out that persistence is the best approach to any sort of creative block and I am proud to announce that besides recording, the first song of Food Groups is full written lyrically and instrumentally.
I’m very reluctant to start rapping. I’ve been told no or met with a dodge-y remark by most of the people I’ve talked to about it (there are exceptions of course). Those that have encouraged me have given me the strength to push up and over the mountains of self-doubt that I face daily and there’s no way that I can ever hope to repay them or express how much their support has meant to me. They have made all the difference at bringing this first of 5 songs to fruition.
Part of my time at my new school has been spent with the hip-hop society which is the most exceptional group of freestyle rappers that I have ever encountered in person. Being in their presence has been humbling and encouraging. They’re very accepting and have served as a good reminder of what hip-hop stands for. I hope that someday I am able to write raps half as well as some of these guys freestyle.
All in all, the first song off of food groups is lyrically and instrumentally written. I wanted to write about it in order to give myself some level of accountability for finishing the project. I could not be happier with the way that it’s turned out and even though it isn’t perfect, it’s a fairly accurate representation of who I am as a person. I can’t wait to share it with the rest of you.
