Straight out of somewhere in upstate New York

The forces that be designed this Straight Outta Somewhere website.

Jaquandor, that fly guy from the OP (that being Orchard Park), did this. There’s a new movie about NWA, “a Compton, California-based hip hop group widely considered one of the seminal acts of the gangsta rap sub-genre.” I wasn’t a big fan, as I found their music misogynistic. I couldn’t name the members save for Dr. Dre and Ice Cube, and the latter only because of his appearances as an actor.

Anyway, there’s going to be a movie about the group, Straight Outta Compton, opening today. In honor, the forces that be designed this Straight Outta Somewhere website. I took the first few pictures of me I could find and did this:

I'm a librarian. I hear music, even when it's not being played. I used to work at a comic book store, and it still informs my life. I won once on JEOPARDY! - ditto.

One thought on “Straight out of somewhere in upstate New York”

  1. Then again, that N.W.A song about the police — excuse me, “tha” police — always makes me smile, simply because it’s so wildly over the top. Or maybe I just have a warped sense of humor.
