Was one of Brooklyn’s finest in Harlem in 1939? This Sid Grossman photo of “Harlem Loiterers” from the Prints Collection at NYPL’s Schomburg Center for Research In Black Culture has created quite a stir since being posted to the Center’s Facebook page the other day. Why? Because the man on the right looks a heck of a lot like Jay-Z (for evidence, check out these photos of Jay-Z when he visited The New York Public Library in 2011). Cue Twilight Zone music, right? Schomburg’s Curator of Digital Collections Sylviane A. Diouf found the photo while researching an exhibition, and said, “I was immediately struck by the similarity to Jay-Z and actually laughed out loud … I still hope somebody will tell us who that you man really was.”
So is Jay-Z a time traveler? Is this someone else - anyone know who? What do you think?
So Jay-Z is a Time Lord?
I would totally believe that Jay-Z is a Time Lord.
#5 The Beatles 1
My parents are of the right age to have gone through Beatlemania I got this album when it came out being somewhat ignorant to the majority of the music of the Beatles. The Beatles are one of the foundations for modern popular culture.
#4 Girl Talk Feed the Animals
This was my first real eye opener when it came to the power of the mashup. I realized how much I really love remixes and mashups in particular.
#3 Nirvana nevermind
I was too young to truly appreciate this album when if first came out. It captured something I could feel. later I realized all the raw emotion that existed in that album. Just a powerful album.
#2 Incubus Morning Side
Still one of my favorites. The songwriting is just first class. The album goes all over the emotional spectrum. I can not say enough good about it.
#1 Linkin Park Hybrid Theory
It’s most likely timing that made this album so important to me. It bridged the gap between hip hop and rock for me. I had an outlet. I felt complete empathy with the words. I still am engrossed in the musical experimentation that existed in its creation. It is far from perfect but at the time it was just what the doctor ordered.
So I’m reading high fidelity again and I feel like making top 5 lists.
Sorry I’ve been MIA tumblr here is me and a pineapple and habanero infused tequila cocktail.
A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.
The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.
The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full.. The students responded with a unanimous ‘yes.’
The professor then produced two Beers from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand.The students laughed..
‘Now,’ said the professor as the laughter subsided, ‘I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things—-your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions—-and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car.. The sand is everything else—-the small stuff.
‘If you put the sand into the jar first,’ he continued, ‘there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life.
If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you.
Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.
Spend time with your children. Spend time with your parents. Visit with grandparents. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and mow the lawn.
Take care of the golf balls first—-the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.
One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the Beer represented. The professor smiled and said, ‘I’m glad you asked.’ The Beer just shows you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple of Beers with a friend.
This was what my HS principal did when she left the school.
