  • a little boy haggling for my pokemon cards & asking about my time in arizona
  • a young teen walking up all bored w/ her mom and then seeing my manga bins & yelling “YOU HAVE NARUTO” and sitting there boxing and reading them as her mom went to get cash for literally 50 fuckin volumes
  • she liked yuri on ice too!!!! i didnt have the heart to tell her my blog bc its so porny but we gushed together haha (i was sellin one of my viktor mugs and she was like !!!)
  • her face when i handed her witch hunter robin vol. 1 & my second copy of tekkonkinkreet for free. sweet ppl deserve good things
  • the old lady who came inside so i could show her how to thread/work a sewing machine haha she recorded me and it was the cutest thing
  • the ten people who showed up asking about video games only to drive away when they found out someone came before i was even open to buy em all (sorry ya’ll.. he was on it)
  • a longtime follower BEING THE SWEETEST BEAN IRL orz <33 
  • getting my period ofc
  • two cats came to browse :))
  • so did about 34 bees :((((
  • the feeling of closing the garage door after packing up

A photography exhibition entitled “Hip-Hop Revolution: Photographs by Janette Beckman, Joe Conzo and Martha Cooper” will escort viewers back in time via a nostalgia-inducing series of photographs capturing the zeitgeist of one of culture’s most decisive moments.

And while the music was undoubtedly the standout aspect of this cultural moment, the style wasn’t bad either. Bucket hats, boom boxes, gold chains, flat tops – the spirit of hip-hop wasn’t just pulsing through speaker systems, it was all over the streets.

I was listening to the Payday 2 soundtrack today and thinking that it’s kind of weird that the theme song (Criminal’s Ambition) draws on imagery that’s so at odds with the aesthetic of the actual crew. It’s a rap song, references basketball, “if we succeed we can even take care of our kids”, etc–it’s not generically criminal, it’s clearly very gangster in a way that doesn’t line up with the ¾ middle aged white guy in business suits crew (the album cover with Dallas and the big Flava Flav medallion is kinda embarrassing). Even Chains’s origin doesn’t jive with it.

I wonder a little if the Swedish devs went for that vibe because they had a particular view of crime in America…
