Thanks to Aquarius Records I am the proud owner of DJ Drank’s Greatest Malt Liquor Mix, a set of St. Ides Malt Liquor ads recorded in the 90s by top rap artists and very shortly afterwards pulled off the air due to public outcry. Great, great stuff.
I was in Trader Joe’s today buying things I shouldn’t, like peanut butter filled pretzels and Irish whiskey, and I saw a familiar face. It was one of those totally out of context recognition situations, like seeing your elementary school teacher at a leather bar or something. I thought “wha..whaa…him?” and said “Hey! Did you work at Rhino Records in L.A. in the 80s?” Why yes he did, and he remembered me too. Which shows both that he’s got a great memory, and that I bought far, far too many records at the Rhino retail store during that time. My favorite record store clerk from my college years is now working at a grocery store down the street from me, 50 miles away. Yow.
I made smoked salmon quiche and an artichoke heart and tomato salad with tarragon dressing tonight, with mochi green tea ice cream to finish off. I R COOK!
