I dunno about you but if I got my ass kicked because I was paying to much attention to my IPOD and not the danger in the streets… I would feel like a pussy. Especially if during the beating, in between fists and feet, my art-is-life snow white ear phones came undone and the "attackers" heard my madonna-mega-mix. I fear that would constitute a whole nother beating; one i might never wake up from. Anyways, I was HYPOTHETICALLY talking about me, but really talking about you. It was actually more a warning for all you mp3'ers out there who seem to be oblivous to reality as you float on cloud ipod. It has become quite an alarming epidemic over the past year. In fact, it's gotten so out of control that i've seen white yuppies wearing they're work costumes walk through a bloods vs. crypts gang face off and come out completely unscathed. I think the gang members were equally confused also as they're usual "rough" and "tumble" ways no longer seem to scare normal peole. It's like we've beome a city of zombies. Sometimes it seems like the population is so zoned out that one could get into some crazy shit without any consequences at all??? Who knows… try it out with your friends…
