Preem!

A 15 hour playlist from the greatest boom bap hip hop producer to walk the earth, DJ Premier.

Bulletproof | 1996

I remember absolutely loving this movie in high school. It’s peak 90’s buddy comedy featuring Adam Sandler, in an unconventional role for him at the time, and Damon Wayans, fresh off his action block buster, “Blankman”.

The Diary by Scarface | 1994

I still remember the first time I saw the video for “I Seen a Man Die” on Rap City. I’m pretty sure it was still hosted by Joe Clair.

They Live | 1998

I don’t even know where to start with this movie. I love it for it’s obvious theme and surprisingly for its campiness. Emphasized in one of the most arduously obtuse fight scenes I have ever seen put to film. It’s truly miraculous.

Dah Shinin’ by Smif-n-Wessun | 1995

Surprisingly I enjoy this album more now than I did when it was released. It may be a few tracks fat and a bit shapeless, but it’s still one of my favorites 90’s hip hop albums.

Spies Like Us | 1985

Directed by John Landis Starring: Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, Donna Dixon, Steve Forrest One of my favorites. Feels depressingly pertinent to the absurdity of our

Inner Space | 1987

Directed by Joe Dante Starring: Dennis Quaid, Martin Short and Meg Ryan I remember this being one of my favorite movies back in the day,

The Chronic by Dr. Dre | 1992

Dre is of the first hip hop artists I ever listened to. And apparently he is, or at least was, an abusive buster who’s just adept at marketing and paying for/stealing other people’s ideas?!

The Professional by DJ Clue | 1998

Also released today, but in 1998, DJ Clue – The Professional. This was the epitome of the mid 90’s hip hop for me. Banging ass

Congo | 1995

Directed by Frank Marshall Starring: Laura Linney, Dylan Walsh, Ernie Hudson, Grant Heslov, Joe Don Baker, Tim Curry and Bruce Campbell. I remember watching this

Chronic 2001 by Dr. Dre | 1999

Released November 16, 1999, my senior year of high school. I’m not sure if it’s unpopular or not, but I think I like this one

Labcabincalifornia by The Pharcyde | 1995

I still remember the first time I saw the video for “Drop”, directed by Spike Jones. They learned all of their lines backwards so they could run the film backwards and have them still rapping on beat.

Gonna Be Sharing Ish I Like, Not Just Ish I make

In addition to sharing my photography and musings, I plan to share some of the movies I’m watching, music I’m rocking, and books that I’m reading. Anything that has inspired is fair game to be shared.

Hersheypark Happy

At the end of last summer, I made the half hour journey from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to the land of happiness and cavities. Yes, I speak

Fruitless Repairs

At what point does repair become obsolete? It would seem like most days are spent taping together bits of dust instead of just sweeping it into the bin and starting anew.
