A Tribute to Chalk
Through discovering the Fabric, somehow I was connected to Jean Michel Basquiat. I think the character of chalk reminds me of the early roots of Graffiti when Graffiti still didn’t exist in the form that it does exist in today.
It also reminds me of Street Games in big cities such with huge Apartement Blocks. Where Kids from different cultures came together to play games like stickball or hopscotch just to have a nice time in their Bario.
A time in which a childhood dreams could be shaped by just a piece of chalk, a time where busy streets were transformed into backyards by simple lines, squares and circles drawn on to the tarmac.
Back to the Playground.
Love saves the day !

The Weird World of Blowfly
„This unflinching biopic follows the 69-year-old funk machine as he mounts a comeback tour. While such disciples as Ice-T and Chuck D. discuss Reid’s influence,
the film also captures Blowfly in action, whether on the road with his drummer or talking it up at home with his live-in mom“
Clarence Henry Reid is an american producer and songwriter.
He produced artists like Betty Wright, Sam&Dave, Gwen McCrae and many more.
He has such a melodic heavy funky style, that it´s not easy to keep standing still.
In „Blowfly’s Rapp“ appears the significant sample of Gwen McCrae´s „Funky Sensation“, as you can hear.
Once in a while Reids‘ funky melody blurs his truly dirty and sexually explicit lyrics. Concerning his songs, my feelings are between love and hate.
Though he is a talented, groovy and kind of insane guy indeed, often i don´t know how to handle his texts.
I was not sure if he is a sexist or only a parodist but it seems that Blowfly was just an Art project.
Blowfly with his Mask doesn’t give a shit for what people are thinking about him, and he enjoys to provoke.
At the End Clarence seems to be an authentic being and his Influence in development of the Miami-Soul History is totally important.

THE HIP HOP COOKBOOK
When I couldn’t find any sleep last night, i found this:
I discovered another one „Rappers Delight“ but this one seems to be more authentic.
„…Look over the shoulder of true Hip Hop pioneers as they share some food for the soul. This collection offers a personal glimpse into the lives and kitchens of some of the most extraordinary artists from all four Hip Hop elements—MCing, breaking, graffiti writing and DJing. Accompanying the artists’ favorite recipes are short stories, biographies and photos from the past and present…“

When I flicked through some Pages, I noticed that one of the Artists is sharing the same place of birth with me, Bielefeld…
He already born there in 1968 and moved 1976 to France.
Darco FBI. With Neon and Camnoz he established the legendary Crew FBI (Faboulus Bomb Inability), which became one of the most recognized graffiti artist collectives.
’89 in France he was the first Graffitiartist who was sentenced.
