recreate the waste land (posted backwards so that readers can read from beginning to end normal-like) and for each quote or allusion create another tumblr named after the source and reblog it from there. (bonus pts: like posts from jessielweston.tumblr.com)
RE: comments on various terms for marijuana
“weed” - nothing fancy, but functional. i think it’s kinda the standard; seems like everybody uses it. “cheeba” - don’t really use it a ton, but it’s a decent one. i like saying “the cheeba spot” more than just “cheeba” on its own. “ganja” - i don’t mind but i never use it. i think it has to do with the (real or...
RE: "pot" as a term for marijuana
don’t like it. never use it. i think it’s just the sound of the word that i don’t like…”ot”…
RE: "cosmic american music"
you know why nobody says that now except in discussions about parsons, usually preceded by “so-called” or something to that effect? because it’s fucking stupid, that’s why.

i’ve never actually been asked this, as far as i can remember. apparently it’s asked in job interviews a lot (never had one of those, so maybe that explains it). if i were ever asked it, i think i’d object to it being oversimplifying, irrelevant, pointless, etc. - all of which i do actually believe - and try not to make it obvious that the thought terrifies me. i have no idea...
RE: a thing i saw yesterday
a dude wearing a jerry’s kids is this our world? shirt. i kinda wish i had run up to him and yelled “CRUCIFYMECRUCIFYMECRUCIFYME”
one time when i was high i thought to describe freeway as “a backpacker rick ross”. looking back, that’s fucking stupid.
RE: some tree roots i saw today
they stretched out far beyond the tree, occasionally coming out of the ground. they looked like the veins of the earth, or the wires.

people give a fuck about mac miller? really? i haven’t heard much but all that i have is so bland

saw EMA tonight. really good - band is tight, and anderson has this weird confidence about her that makes her impossible to take yr eyes off of. the rocked-out “anteroom” was pretty cool too.

the more time passes, the more ridiculous the idea of “the next dylan” seems.

RE: weezy f. baby
If you gon’ call him Weezy Then you must say the baby If you don’t say the baby Then just don’t say it at all - Nikki, “Weezy Baby” Go by the name of Weezy F. and - Lil Wayne, “Don’t Trip” ..what the fuck man
for about a week maybe a month or so ago, i kept getting calls asking for “mike”. “mike savage”. it wasn’t a misdial, they were actually calling my number - the problem was just that i am not mike. even odder, i had had the phone for several months before this started. eventually i asked one of the callers to get in touch with mike and ask him to straighten this out....

RE: "everything remains raw"
if only it had. busta’s career for the last decade-ish has become stagnant, stuck in some ill-fitting thug rich suit, presumably added as some sort of commercial concession. to give some reference points, imagine a so-so imitation of rick ross’s wealth rap crossed with boring studio gangsterism. not to say there weren’t a couple of dope verses in there, for example his verse on...
RE: or that high
yeah, maybe i am
RE: "still shining"
busta ain’t even just flowin’ ova this beat, he fuckin’…doin’ BATTLE with it!!! he jumpin’ all over of it, front of it, back of it, kick it crunch it outta shape and dance to the contours of the chunks…. “to my dragon babies stop whinin’, i see my influence still shinin’” at about 1:40; he staggers his flow, keeping right in...
RE: how high i am
not quite high enough to actually write a dissertation on why busta rhymes is a forgotten genius of hip hop complete with analysis of the rhythmic content of individual lines, adoring tangents about his wonderfully inventive flow, and all that shit, but high enough for the notion to occur to me.
