1. Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2 coming up, son. Gitchu some excitement.

2. Chef. Chef. Chef. Chef. Also, needs more GZA. Jim Jones and Rick Ross? C’mon, son. Jones’ career is probably about as dead as armadillos on Texas highways.

Comment:

I don’t really have any stories this week. I guess I could share the one about the time when I realized I might need to give up on my dream of copyediting. I was sitting at my desk, typing up the daily email and thinking about an upcoming “trial copywriting day” at an awesome place I interned over the summer when I realized: If people are going to keep paying me to write, then I guess I’ll keep doing it. For the love of all things awesome, I work at a place partially named “Recognition”; they’re in the business of recognizing people who do great work. Unlike retail.

Hoods on the right, wild for the night.
