after at least 3 years of discussion, 6 months of planning, 14 weeks of building, and more than a few nights of freaking out, last night at 9.45pm we got to witness another one of raph’s obsessive idea’s come into reality.
after all that it was quite surreal to see it parked next to our house. i had feelings that swayed from “of my god – what the fuck are we doing?…” to “oh my god – look at this amazing thing we created – what the fuck are we doing? ” (actually not dis-similar feelings to that of at the birth of our kids – but possibly on a less epic scale).
so please let me introduce the newest member to our family – BEATBOX KITCHEN!!
raph is already up at meredith setting up for the first day of trading tomorrow in the international food court – so if you are lucky to have scored a ticket (pharoahe monch/animal collective/middle east/eddy current – wish i was going to be there) go say hello!
meredith menu includes – shroom burger, chicken schnitzel rap, grilled provolone and tomato piadina and also first (of many) co-labs – eddy current “cool ice-cream” sandwich – premium vanilla ice-cream sandwiched between 2 slices of my secret-recipe brownie. even though i have now tasted it a few dozen times i would still call it a taste sensation. and it comes with a free limited edition magnet!!
anyway now the hysteria of finishing the beatbox is over, i might actually have time to put some of my new work and other news on here… (that is once i get past my single-parent weekend) post of that sort coming soon. til then… stay fresh!
