The Daily Word in Urinating Walls, Black Friday and The White House

The Daily Word

Germany has walls that will make you think twice about urinating on them.

This local diner is going to give you all the feels and remember what holidays are actually about.

Are you a health freak? Well there’s a new type of tattoo just for you.

Incase you missed it, this guy had a lot of balls on Thankgiving.

Black Friday gets wild.

Do you ever just wonder how science is even real? Same.

Reading Recommendation: Monstress

Marjorie Liu transposes real-world issues into a fantasy world

Writer Marjorie Liu wastes no time in her new comic series, Monstress.

Within the first issue alone the main character has evolved three times over from slave, to prisoner, and beyond. Not only is the character development rapid and spot-on, but the world building is immediate and visceral. We can thank Liu's collaborator, Tokyo-based Sana Takeda, for her contributions to the ornate, mystical aesthetic of Monstress.

Perhaps most importantly, Liu is taking on heavy issues in the story of the series- identity, racism, the legacy of war and the degradation that comes with drug abuse.

I highly suggest keeping up with Monstress as the story evolves. The first two issues are out now from Image Comics.

Stevie Stone Rolls into the Launchpad

Launchpad was graced with Yung Knowledge, YAK Boy Fresh, BINGX and Stevie Stone on Sunday, Nov. 22. Yung Knowledge officially began the show. The duo were exceptionally charismatic and engaging. Easily captivating the crowd, they initiated audience participation and used that as a flawless segue between songs. YAK Boy Fresh (Y.ou A.lready was backed by a band – atypical for his work – but they all had incredible chemistry. YAK Boy Fresh’s flow was effortless, rhythmic and rousing. BINGX was extraordinarily entertaining and receptive to audience members. His high energy was relentless and unmatched.

Stevie Stone took the stage after a short film showing him escaping from a mental institution looking like Hannibal Lecter. Working with DJ Picasso, he was commanding and powerful. Stone’s passion for his music was easy to see and feel. He wanted his fans at Launchpad to know he appreciated them. He performed songs primarily from Strangeulation Vol. II; the crowd was wild and reflected Stone’s enthusiasm. With all the excitement and energy he was putting into the show, Stone took small breaks at the beginning of some songs before jumping up and dancing through his set. He invited a few groups of people from the crowd to join him, his touring crew and the other musicians on stage. All who joined him were eager to do so.

Stevie Stone is an unpretentious performer with outstanding content and flow. He subtly harmonizes with the music. He can stay in tempo but change rhythms with ease. His voice is profound and authoritative. When he’s on stage, there’s no misidentifying the drive and expertise he exudes.

After the show, Stevie Stone stayed to interact with fans. While his music is aggressive and direct, Stone was very kind and gentle with his fans. I watched him talk with and take photos with at least 20 people before I left. When I talked to him he was thoughtful and was genuinely concerned that I enjoyed myself. I talked with a few of the other musicians at the show; they were the same way. I felt welcomed and very pleased to see them all.

I loved watching the crowd and their energy which reflected the performers. Being unfamiliar with all of these musicians and their work, I looked to the crowd for guidance. The group was enthusiastic, wild, blissful, and passionate. Everyone was happy to be there, perhaps most of all Stevie Stone.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need a chilly rub.
