I’ve only watched the first episode of Mad Men… and maybe part of the second. There’s a scene after work wherein Don Draper is at some lounge smoking, having a drink, and writing down ideas on a napkin. (Maybe that’s in every episode.) He’s working on a campaign for some cigarettes, but can’t quite figure out what direction to take it in…

So, I thought this Karl Strauss was over by Wyndansea. GPS disagreed. It’s in a secluded (sort of) location at the end of a street right alongside the 5 freeway. I had no idea I was near it until I heard Biggie… and “flamingos” (Sneakers, 1992).
Someone asked me if I was living the life.
Not yet, man. But, what’s up with the growlers…?

It’s no secret that I’m a DOOM fan. I remember the first time hearing Operation : Doomsday. B bought a copy at Tower Records and played it in the Nissan on the way out. Fantastic Four samples, “no hooks or choruses,” Dr. Doom parody art on the cover. I was sold. I listened to that album every day for I don’t know how long. I visited BlastPlatform1 every night looking for MF DOOM related art, and even went to the extreme of papercrafting him. But, O:D’s not the topic this time; Madvillain is.
I’m no music reviewer, so, I don’t intend to do one on the album. But, there IS one reason that supersedes all the other reasons why I love this album…
