      Recently, I had an incident that caused an atomic-like reaction on to the world wide web. I stepped into a lyrical battlefield to face a challenger who was worthy of my best, yet, could not receive the best of what The Ripper could present due to complicated circumstances. Unfortunately, Rippers, I could not be at my best and my explanation for this is something only someone with a proper attached device in their mechanism can comprehend.

      I believe that is a complete, descriptive reason why I must have these tickets.

      In 1996 for Marketing 101 I designed a floorplan, menu, signage and waitress uniform for an Ultramagnetic Pancake House in Ames, IA. It would've featured Kool Keith Crèpes, Moe Love Waffles, TR Funk Igniter Plus Beignets and the Ced Gee Blintz. All in miniature, served in a paper cone. You would get all four in our signature combo The Critical Beatdown. I got an A but dropped out the next year which I regret cause now I can't afford a ticket and must win this.


      Because I snack on Triangle Mangoes and Smack on Lame Ducks.

      Plus these busters prolly live at home with they moms... And I know that most these fake thugs got on lingerie under they tracksuits or whatever. Additionally I, too, was a nerdy as a youngster dressing up as dracula and hanging out on stoops and shit freaking people out...

      And I love Seltzer like my man Kool Keith.

      I'm from Montreal and I'll be digging in the crates this weekend in NYC. I need some Ultra funk to ease back from the critical beatdowns people are getting these days in Mtl http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StnKNgPF05s&feature=youtu.be

      i deserve to see UMCs cos they pulled out of Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona, and they were the MAIN reason i was going!

      I need to let loose this weekend, get some down time, enjoy myself. ive been driving trucks for 23 years now and the only real appreciation i got was from that kool keith guy. I've been moving everything from super market produce to fancy boutique shit from New York all the way out to sante fe and back. I've been to golden gate, george washington bridge and boulder ridge. My life is the road and to see a musician who truly understands that would be inspirational. Country singers dont even get the realness of real truck driving. i would like to see bob seger thread a 40 ft flat through a low pass hairpin uphill on a 30. When i picked up this cd in some shit waffle house in iowa city i thought it was going to be a joke but 30 hrs to seattle really opened me up to understand and appreciate it. The lifestyle us orchestrators is way overlooked, i go through some tough shit and i go without seeing friends and family for months. The show is at a perfect time, my job out in Flag point doesnt start till tuesday and my girlfriend wants me to take her out for the night, so the fact that this show is this weekend is perfect. Seeing a great truck rapper teach thousands of people the true ways of the road would be amazing.

      I want to seduce my man with a night of nostalgia. I want us to kick it like kids again, *ease back* , *make it happen* and drop these adult worries for one night.

      If I don't win these tickets, I'll try to make lingerie out of pair of old cookie monster blue Cross Colours (with a "u") jeans... and that wouldn't be good. I can't sew.
