I can’t have many more summers like this. Silver Car Crash is the result of that realization and the looming issue I refuse to face that is my future. I know what I am about to say about ideas is ironic considering this cover, title, and paragraph are a direct result of my ideas, but I don’t feel like I do enough with my ideas. Here’s why. In the perfect world, everyone shares their best ideas, and from that grand mixing pot of people’s best ideas, the absolute best idea is selected as the concept for a product. But in the world we live in, the best idea doesn’t always win, so we learn to conform. We learn to adjust our ideas to fit with old ideas. In essence, we are constantly updating the second or third best idea, and no matter how much we update that idea it will never match the potential of the absolute best idea. iPhone 5s are a good reference for this process. It is backwards and terrible, so that’s why a frustrated, young thinker invented art (probably) because there is no “best” art; there are many “best” art(s). I don’t really know the point of this. I just know that I enjoy using art as the medium for sharing my ideas because the real world is horrifying, and there’s no reason why the best idea shouldn’t always win. But the fact that I enjoy something doesn’t mean it’s right, and as I type this I am realizing that I need to start sharing more ideas outside of a safe, cushioned context and face this shit head on in a silver car crash. Okay, that was corny. But hey, I said the title, so it had to feel at least a little validating after reading all the crap I wrote above. Sorry. Don’t conform, and be brave.

I’m going to change that–I’m starting to become a big fan. This recent song that he did with Action Bronson, produced by Dirt Nasty and Alan The Alchemist, is really, really dope. The production might be its strongest asset, but the verses by Riff Raff and Bam Bam Bronson are really well done. They’ve both got incredible flow throughout, and Riff Raff’s flow on that second verse is borderline impeccable. Never thought I’d say that about Riff Raff, but it’s true.
No MP3 as of yet, but expect to be hearing a lot out of Action Bronson in the future. I’ll do my best to bring it here to you guys on Sunset.
Shouts to Bronson’s mobile phone–gotta be at least a decade and a half old.
