It's SUMMERTIME. And the livin' is easy. Relatively speaking.
Yeah, there's still rent, bills, air conditioner eff ups, your nasty neighbors, and THE MAN. But eff it. It's summertime and the livin' is EASY.
Now that our exams are over (temporarily), Biochemical Slang is back on its grizzly. Supremacy: watch your back. The truth is out there.
Biochemical Slang wants to know: WHERE THE EFF WOULD WE BE WITHOUT MUSIC? Can you imagine life without a soundtrack? Me neither. It's summertime, SNITCHES!
The Originals - Sunrise
Al Green - Summertime
Sam & Dave - Summertime
Sam Cooke - Summertime
The Isley Brothers - Summer Breeze
Millie Jackson - Summer (the first time)
Jack McDuff - Summer Dream
Ice Cube - My Summer Vacation
The Specials - Too Hot
Jay-Z - Dear Summer
...the light? The end?
June 14th is just around the corner. That means Biochemical Slang will be back in business. That also means Vik gets to return to the REAL WORLD. Apparently, even as you ignore the world, time STILL MOVES FORWARD.
HOLLA at Biochemical Slang at CENTRAL PARK on June 16th. The legendary TELEVISION is playing what is rumored to be their last show. For those that don't know, it's BIGGER than just hip-hop. Remember: Hip-hop is rock 'n' roll. Rock 'n' roll is hip-hop. Eff the music separatists. They have no idea what they're missing.
As if you don't already know, Biochemical Slang will be in the building for the hip-hop event of the summer (it helps that this is a free show, eff Rock the Bells expensive-sold-out-ish), the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival.
For those that have no money, SUMMERTIME in NYC is a great place to be.
BIOCHEMICAL SLANG: Livin' ain't free, but it doesn't have to be expensive. Holla!
DON'T LET THE JONESES GET YOU DOWN - The Temptations
The Joneses? They're the LAST of my worries. You know how it is.
The Temptations need to update this track for the 2-double-0-seven. The Joneses have been coastin' for years.
So please bear with me as I prepare to take my BOARD EXAMS. Updates will be less frequent until June 14th.
Be sure to visit my Internets family, located to your right.

Did you know that this past Saturday was Malcolm X's 82nd birthday? If not, I can empathize. There were no flags-at-half-mast. No video montages on the local news. No words of remembrance from our "civil rights leaders." No official national recognition. Just another Saturday. It even momentarily slipped under the radar screen, here at Biochemical Slang.
Eff supremacy. I'll be confident that supremacy is loosening it's grip around my neck when my government, at the very least, acknowledges the existence of Malcolm X. Every yin needs a yang. Every Martin needs a Malcolm. Turn the other cheek, with a clenched fist in your pocket.
Believe it or not, the hippies may be ahead of the game with this one. Believe it or not, Berkeley city offices were CLOSED in recognition of "Malcolm X Day:"
It's a START. What was goin' on closer to home? The Harlem H & M closed on Saturday. It's SOMETHING, right?!?
