Very geeked to have our new joint Ding in the most excellent Barrelhouse Spring 2012 Online Issue, which is not only edited by the always stellar Tom Williams, but contains an array of fine writers we love, including, but not limited to the Molly Gaudry and Jesus Angel Garcia. Now, how about some excerpt? Word.
"If there is a problem, yo, I’ll resolve it, check out the hook while my DJ revolves it.
It has always been about love, seriously, straight up, love of music, love of words, language, telling stories and making people happy, all up on their feets and loving life. And I do love everyone, even the haters, the liars, the disparagers and those big pimpin’ motherfuckers who will do anything to bring someone down the second they get any kind of props.
Which is why I never got it, I don’t get it and never will. I can’t fathom it really, truthfully, none of it. Some of y’all will say I’m not willing to get it, that the shit is obvious, obvious to everyone but me. But to that I say, why am I a joke? I didn’t kill no ones, I didn’t rape no ones, I didn’t lie and I didn’t steal. I kept it real yo, legit.
So what up?"
