I think it's funny when people (with stuck up attitudes about music who will remain nameless but know very well who they are) try to tell me that my "little hip hop obsession" is silly and will never amount to something. Alrighty, go ask that guy at UCLA that's doing his dissertation on it... or, ask Charles, who did a regional AMS presentation on Marilyn Manson... in the SOUTH. What I think is even more funny is how this person (one in specific) claims to LOVE Shostakovich as much as he does but yet... doesn't seem to care about his words... or the fact that Shostakovich truly lived them and I think that to be a true admirer of DSCH you've got to get in his head. I'm not saying you've got to agree with everything he said (though not being a musical snob would be a good start) but you've got to see his perspective and dat a fact.
An that note, CDs to purchase before the road trip to Baton Rouge/New Orleans (ummmmmm the birth place of all this mayhem):

* Purple Ribbon All Stars, I've simply GOT to pick this up to add to my collection of Texas hip hop.

* Dem Franchize Boyz... NO, not because of "I think they like me" because I actually HATE that song and for a long time, oh, I thought I hated them. I've had a change of heart. Still not convinced about that song though.

I just stared thinking about Joe from Govie land. He was perhaps the biggest musical snob of them all. Sarah, Will, thoughts? = )
Though, Kris gave him a run for his money...

I used to be a musical snob *hides* but I have now learned the beauty of expanding one's horizons!! Different genres have different things to offer and if you're open to more you get more out of music.

lol, good ol' Joe and Krissss!

Gotta love Joe for governor.
Anyway, heard anything more from your schools?

I got into USC this week, but I REALLY don't want to go there. I'm sure you know what I mean. I don't want to go where everyone EXPECTS me to go.

Aww, I decided not to apply to FSU for various reasons, and it would be the 5th school anyway. But if I end up in Austin, we should meet up in Houston when you go there to do field work! hehe

*crosses fingers for your results!*
