Jim Rice, Kokorokoko, and 103 in Seattle

teeth shirt from KokorokoNarratives should be released, hopefully, this will work out.  I had a  Fin Du Monde beer , sitting in front of the Highdive on Chicago ave, facing East, chair just into the small dot of shade from the tree at my back.  It was hot, but kind of perfect.  103 degrees in Seattle today, we are taking note right?. Crazy town. It was lovely here in Chicago, and the timing of having a day off under the sun was swell as well.  I had to bike over to this  store, and you should check out, Kokorokoko is the jam. Ashland, just south of Dusty Groove, so.. Haddon st.  There was this shirt that I was loving a few months ago, specifically a really nice deep soft blue one. It was a small, I was sad.   So yesterday,  one of the owners, let me know (via secret note style) that there was a nice blue newly arrived shirt for me at the store. So today, I peeped it, tried it on, and now will rock it, most likely little kid new gear style, meaning day one, tomorrow. Teeth kind of freak me out, but the print on the back of the shirt is a spine of teeth, pretty dope. I also got myself a nice Tom Tom Club 12″ of Lorelei. $3.

All About The Roosevelt’s… that shit from Taco Bell… I know its my own fault for even watchin the tele, but come now. Kill that noise, I get parody and the push to drone out the brain with ads, but that song hurts the universe.
Jim Rice went into the hall of fame last weekend, pretty cool. It brought back this really great flood of memories, thoughts and smell recalls from when our family lived in this freaky last neighborhood eat in Urbana Illinois. Washington and 136 if your from the 217. I have a really good instant recall of the field between Carrie Elementary School and our little enclave of cookie cutter cheap houses, that field was where I played baseball with friends and with my favorite Easter present ever, my Jim Rice baseball bat, black with white writing and trim. The model of bat was more recognized with the signature of Reggie Jackson. His bat was an often seen bat in the baseball bat bins at the Zayre, AIr Way (later turned into Target), Goldblatts, and Jerry and Al’s, a super dope old school sporting goods store from Champaign Urbana and… oh, yeah, its not about a list of stores, its about the bat, I loved my Jim Rice bat, it is connected with a the smell of early spring in near rural Urbana. So congrats to Jim Rice, and Ricky Henderson as well, he was strait hood. Lake Side Tarace style.
I just heard a clip of a dude ( not even gonna repeat the fools name, no spread of him here ) calling Obama a racist “who has a chip on his shoulder”. Are things really that way? At least the day was nice and warm.  One a pretty cool last little note, I like the way the Cubs are playing.  I’m thinking this is gonna be a nice run towards the playoffs.  Soriano, Ramirez, Lee, and yep, i’m thinking Bradley is gonna actually heat up.  Kinda offense only?  I’m sure that by the time I hit publish post, that the Cubs could have dropped to 4th place, but as of this second.  First Place baby.
