2012 : Apocalyptic Signs that Plastic Little Killed Hip Hop : 2012

Its official. Plastic Little scored a half page photo in the Sunday edition of NyTimes Arts Leisure section with awesome quotes from Plastic Little such as “In a sense, these meta-rappers have become keepers of the flame for the genres old guard neo-traditionalists in eccentrics clothing. Theres always nostalgia its a byproduct of capitalism” said Jayson Musson, 30, the frontman for the Philadelphia rap satirists Plastic Little. “Especially for the kids who werent really there, that era becomes hypercool, like the 50s and the Beats.”

The photo was taken from the video “Dopeness” directed by space member Ted Passon. Big thanks to everyone who helped, Carrie from Fabric Horse for making the outfits and the giant vagina, Kelly Turso for taking such a lovely photo, Devynn Emory for the excellent choreography, and super special thanks to the dancers: RoAnne, Meg, Daniele, Hedy, and Dave, and the abandoned hospital people, and

congrats kurt jay jon squid and si young

Spacer Bill McRight gets a little write up in the up-coming issue of JUXTAPOZ (#89). Pick up a copy on news stands soon.

So I was going through old magazines last night after I got back from California and I came across the Tokion Disobedients issue from like 2002.

Beyond being a trip down memory lane of artists who’s work I used to (some of whom I still do) drool over and steal from, it was a nice reminder of the energy and excitement that comes with young people making stuff together.

If sensation was sparked by the work actually in the magazine, or if it was more of a memory of where I was when I got the issue, I can’t say. Either way, it was nice to see 1026 mentioned alongside The Luggage Store, New Image and Alife as a venue that fostered those then young artists.
