A Tribe Called Quest

A Tribe Called Quest is my favorite rap group ever. They provided the soundtrack to most of my high school life. When I was a senior in 1998, they broke up and released their final album.  It was a sad day. 10 years went by, and they have kept very quiet, except for a...

Records on the Road at Night

If you are want to know the story behind this photo, here goes: several weeks ago I was at the grocery store, and while loading the bags into my car I took out a bag of my old records to take a look and put them on the roof of my car, but forgot to put them back in. I...
