This afternoon, I'm leaving for a weekend getaway for EAR and myself.
Camper Cabins at Afton State Park, my folks are taking the kids.
Sometimes walking in the woods in winter can be good for things like what Saul Williams talks about here:
Not until you've listen to Rakim on a rocky mountain top
Have you heard hip hop
And let a open wide country side illustrate it
Riding in a freight train
In the freezing rain
Listening to Coltrane
My reality went insane
The trains and planes can corrupt and obstruct your planes of thought
So you that forget how to walk through the woods
Which ain't good cuz you ain't never walked through the trees
Listenin' to nobody beats the biz and you ain't never heard hip hop
Not often hip-hop though. More techno and industrial. I liked Carl Craig's Paperclip People or Coil.
But the forecast is a high of 4F, and that's too cold for my headphones. The wires stiffen and pull the earbuds right out my ears.
Not that walks through the park with someone are for headphone listening anyways.
