Today on Rap U: A Song About a Cat.

The Professor sent me this song. I don’t think it’s rap. I’m also fairly certain that he’s not the person singing. In fact, I don’t think The Professor had anything to do with this track at all. Maybe he stole it from someone. Maybe it’s a B-Side to “Puff the Magic Dragon.” I don’t “get” […]

Rap Music for People who Hate Rap Music

“Harrumph!” you shout from your ivory tower of elitism, built on foundations of diamond-encrusted scoffs and platinum-coated eyerolls. “What’s all this about ‘Rap’ so-called ‘Music?’ In my day, people played tender ballads on guitars and panflutes while staring at the floor, terrified of being thought ‘subversive’ or ‘original!’ Musicians would cry themselves to sleep, ashamed […]

What is Post-Cap Art? (A Manifesto)

A while ago, my newspaper horoscope read:  “Your lack of resources makes you unstoppable.” This, I decided, was the perfect distillation of the Post-Capitalist Art Movement. In the last few decades, the idea of the lone, creative soul has succumbed to a new Nineteenth Century Academy—only this Academy is called the Corporation.  Art has become […]

Bubbles – Liner Notes

Everything about Michael Jackson’s life was problematic: his relations with his father, mother, siblings, fans, promoters, producers, financiers, investors, celebrities, record companies, Neverland employees. I believe that he was as loathed by the people who had to deal with him on a daily basis as he was anonymously loved by billions. People say he himself […]
