...after our move back to New York, I found this clip on an old tape in the bottom of a box. This is from my first trip to India back in the spring of 2000. The two hippies singing Bob Marley in the rickshaw, are Spanish guys I traveled with for a while...
One night I was over at Sofian's house, reviewing a script and bullshitting the night away. He said he needed a location to sub in for the Himalayas. I suggested Colorado, and we started surfing around Google Earth and looking up photos. After about an hour of this, he said he was convinced the Rockies could work, but we should go have a look see ourselves. I laughed, but he was serious and procceded to book us plane tickets to Denver. Two days later we were driving through mountains and hiking through snowpack. June, 2011.
After cleaning out the inside, Dre and I started sorting out the debris on the outside of the Shack. We came across a forgotten about pile of Hip Hop in the Hills signs, that had been put under the eves for safe keeeping, for the next festival, which never happened. So, we had a big bon fire, it was cleansing. May, 2011.
Dre, Madeline and I cleaned out the downstairs of the shack, took almost 900 pounds of junk, computer monitors, a couch, broken tables, moldy Nine37 flyers, down to the dump. Dre and I also unearthed David's old buffalo hide, it was stiff and hard, but the fur was still soft. Basically, it was gross. May, 2011.
...stopped in on the Graz' fam' on my way up to the shack, helped Michael move his grandfather's old piano into the house. He had found the original reciept from the late 30's in the bench, original price $336.00. May, 2011.
I can't be exactly sure, but I am going to assume this picture of my grandmother, Mary Jane Weaver, (back left in white) was taken when she was around 5 years old. Found at my parent's house, May, 2011.
...I have some good friends from here, and I hate to say it, but Kansas is fucking boring, at least to drive through. My trusty navigator had little to do... April, 2011.
...drank one too many IPA's at the Dillon Dam Brewery, then drove over Loveland Pass before decending down into Denver and on into the Prairie. April, 2011.
