OMG magazine journalists read my mind!|
my animation professor from last semester gave jake & i an article from the january '05 issue of TIME magazine about something they call "twixters" (basically people from 18-28 in our generation who seem to grow up slower than previous generations) and it's quite good. it basically sums up my opinion about life for the next 10 years. i thought i was just a weirdo, but it turns out most people in our generation are. if you can find it online you should read it.
less importantly, in this month's URB magazine there's a cover story on lady sovereign and a little blurb on spank rock. coincidentally, these are the two artists i would have put atop my "watch these bastards closely in '06" list, had i written one. last year i said go! team & MIA. this year it's sov & spank rock. there was also a blurb on lupe fiasco, whose guest spot on kanye's sophomore album is easily my favorite bit of lyrics on the whole album (next to cam'ron's "knock knock - who's there? - killa cam - killa who?"), but to be fair i don't know enough about lupe to put him on my list, although i am hoping his debut album is going to kill.
