Got to visit the Red Bull NYC building today and explore the Write Of Passage exhibit which explores the impact of American graffiti art on global culture. Mass Appeal did a great job putting this together which includes a giant SKEME piece and a reconstruction of an actual subway setting.  It was also cool to check out the RBMA radio station in the building and meet some of the great folks who are making things happen at this wonderful institution that supports creativity and community. It was also a pleasure to meet co-founder of Ego Trip/Mass Appeal Sacha Jenkins who had lead a workshop  earlier in the space and is also curating the WOP exhibit. It’s open to the public! If you are in the city make sure to swing by and check it out! More info can be found here.  Thanks Shelley + Hannah and all the cool folks for the great visit!

Okay not only did these guys throw one of the best shows of SXSW 2013 but they are partly responsible for my younger years as an avid reader or alternative literature on Urban music, graff and skate culture.  They approached things with a distinctive perspective that reminds me of what a lot of podcasters are doing today with content, humor and with the an everyman approach. But these guys did it with cool fonts and visuals to accompany each and every issue.  Well now they are back!  I’m prepping for my KCRW show tonight but cant put this issue down.  This issue covers Earl Sweatshirt of Odd Future, the A$AP phenomenon  and an interesting feature on the evolution of writing styles in the new book Flip The Script.  After you read this blurb make sure you subscribe to them!  Or check out the Mass Appeal site! Big thanks to Mass Appeal / Decon for this doozy sitting at my doorstep!  Ps..  Chris Brown article written by the amazing Sacha Jenkins is definitely worth a read!   Thanks again and welcome back MA!
