Here's a little rant. A little beef, if you will. A beefy little rant, as it were. There's this idea I see put forth in certain corners of our culture. It's rarely the main idea, but it's sometimes in there with the other ideas as a little side clause--a little side dish. It's out there and I think it's false, but maybe I'm just partial, but you can be the judge of that.

It is the idea that less smart people are more spiritually connected. It's the idea that life is such that the more you know the less space your brain has for the spiritual things. I think this is a bone that we have thrown to those mentally less advantaged out there. It's really not true. It's really a load of junk, but dumb people aren't smart enough to know this, so let's just let um keep thinkin it. It's all they got. Now, I don't really know if I'm dumb or smart or what. I could be dumb as a rock, but I won't kid myself into thinking this gives me a spiritual advantage. You gotta stay out there and keep learning and keep your antennae up, I think. I think people that aren't into thinking because they want to be more spiritual just don't understand what spirituality is so they pretend its something else and pretend that this something is a very deep and important part of them.

So, maybe you want me to tell you some places you might see this idea put forth. Now, keep in mind, nobody's coming out and saying it. It's sort of just sneaking itself between the lines. You can catch glimpses of it on the hallmark network, cbn, foxnews, naturally, not that I'm dissing fox news. wink wink.

Now, let me say, we probably should actually just let the dumb dumbs have their cake. Don't go peeing on their cake. We know what's up. You and me are totally smart. But not everybody else is so lucky.

Oh. For Real?

Oh. For real?! That’s the title I’m goin with. Here we go. If something happens in life and you aren’t able to make sense of it, than we call it a mystery. If somebody tells you something or if you read something and it doesn’t make sense, we don’t call it a mystery. We say there’s a hole in the story; it doesn’t add up. It’s not a mystery. It invalidates the story. And you know what? It doesn’t matter if this story is a sacred story. It doesn’t matter if this is a story your parents or your grand parents believe. If there are holes in the story, it’s not a mystery. It’s a hole. It’s a contradiction. I’m talking about the Bible of course. “There are some things we just can’t understand,” they say. Sure, in life there are things we can’t understand, but if I’m to trust something somebody says or writes, it can’t have plot holes. Ok? Let’s say I’m a woman who is deeply in love with my husband, and he’s the one I trust most in the world. He tells me he’s going on a business trip. He tells me it’s in Colorado, and I find, let’s say plane ticket stubs or something that say California, I don’t say it’s a mystery. I say somethin’s up.

Lynch's Best Ten

Brother Lynch's ten best songs are as follows, in descending order.

24 deep. off the album "24 deep." It takes a standard, hip hop sort of approach. Great attack, great triplets, lots of verses, all Lynch. Its very very very good. Its nice how the big drums take a little while to come in. Good start for a good beginning. "I got enough shit on my mind. I just can't care." Good wording, I must say. the bass fits real real nice. Lynch has the juice.

there it is. off the album "block movement." Its slow and a little goofy, but its good in a way that not of a lot of other rap is good. It shows what Lynch does so crazy. He kind of tiptoes up to these little climactic parts and you start to kind of feel the anticipation build up like, like somethin. Somethin sexual or violent. ain't nothin gon' happen that ain't suppose to happen opposed to rappin. i close the gap and hit that ass with the mini mac. close caption.

one mo pound. its very weedy. its very anthemic. its amazing really. it has a wonderful wonderful opening with just enough reverb on the vocal. The beat is very minimal and perfect and the bass is nice and low and grumbly.

return of the baby killer. everybody loves this one. starts out a little slow, but builds up like crazy and the west coast sounds start to come, the bass starts to talk to ya and Lynch triplets the heck out of this thing.

naked cheese. from "ebk 4" nice lil love song. his rappin on this is way too cool. its so great. its very chill gangster rap stuff. he pops in with some way elegant rhythmic moments. Nice and simple stuff like "my weed didn't have no seeds in it. foggin up the cutlas supreme. rollin down the street in it.

situation. off "loaded." wonderful verses by everybody. perfect intro. perfect all the way through really. Lynch is amazing and original and that little clip clap in the beat is the perfect little touch.

siccmade. from the album "season of the siccness" is gross and funny and feels like Lynch's theme song or somthing. Its a very very fine peice of music. lotty da. that cannibalistic nigga that got that nine millamita gun. that nigga that nigga that got them muthafuckas on the run.

XCaliber from "EBK 4" is exciting and wonderful and it builds and you don't know what's gonna happen next. Some of the best little Lynch moments and it all just gels together so smooth. has a lot of good spots of stucturing the phrases in a familiar sort of way but having the parts that rhyme in unfamiliar spots within those sentences.

Now, we are at number 2 which is Last Night off the album, "ripgut collection." and I'm off the OE. you know me. Triplet right there at the beginning. beautiful. Love the little tin sounds in the back. good chorus. Great incorporation of the chorus into the verse. Wonderful bass with it all, too. Came in all alone. put one in yo dome. in the mornin you was gon'.

best song. Die 1 by 1. from "Loaded." it has the perfect lil sample from the movie "Evil Dead." Its got wonderful west coast sounds and such a horribleness to it all. Siccmade music comin up out yo speaka. It just does it. This song does it so so good. I really don't understand a lot of it but I don't mind. After you hear this song you can't be afraid of anything again.
