List your favorite hip-hop lyrics. If you're not into hip-hop list your favorite lyrics from other genres.
I'll start: How could you falter when you're the rock of Gibraltar. I had to get off the boat so I could walk on water. This ain't no tall order, this is nothin to me. Difficult takes a day, impossible takes a week. I do this in my sleep, I sold Kilos of coke, (so?) I'm guessin' I can sell CD's I'm not a businessman, I'm a business, man Let me handle my business, damn! - Jay-Z - DB, Lil LB's Dad
"'Cause I grabbed the mic and tried to say, 'Yes, y'all!', they tried to take it, and say that I’m too small: Cool, ’cause I don’t get upset, I kick a hole in the speaker, pull the plug, then I jet..." -Rakim,"Microphone Fiend" - Derrick
I just love the braggadocio these lyrics exude. It expresses a confidence I wish I had. I have the "Difficult takes a day. Impossible takes a week" quote posted in my cube at work. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Ooff.. I may need to do some RND before answering, so many words! I may try to quote one by heart.. One of the songs that I loved performing most was from LONS: Don't ring the bell I'm not comin to CLASS -- Teachers bein preachers how the hell can I PASS? -- First day of school and would zone to the rear -- with a blind spot view and a one leg chair -- I asked when WHAT when WHAT when... more... - Zu from AOD
I'm here at this podium talking, The ceremonial offerings dedicated to urban dysfunctional offspring. What's happening? City governments are eternally napping, Trapped in greedy covenants. Causing urban collapse And bullets that scar souls with dark holes. Get more than your car stole, some parts be blacker than charcoal, for real This society's deprivation depends not on our... more... - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I love Chali 2na. Great lyricist and I think I would cut somebody to have his voice :-p - DB, Lil LB's Dad
The microphone explodes/shattering the molds/either drop the hits like de la O/or get the fuck off the commode/with the sure shot/sure to make the bodies drop/droppin no copy yo/don't call it a co-op/terror reigns, drenching/quenching the thirst of the power dons/that five-sided fistagon/the rotten sore on the face of mother-Earth gets bigger/the triggers cold empty your purse. "Bulls On Parade" Zach de la Rocha - Bren from iPhone
I sit 90 degrees underneath palm trees, Smokin' beadies as I burn my calories, Brooklyn roof tops become Brooklyn tee-pees, Who that be, enemies, wanna see the death of me. From Hawaii to Hawthorne, I run marathons, like Buju Banton, I'm a true champion, like, Farakkhan reads his Daily Qu'ran it's a phenomenon, lyrics fast like Ramadan. "Fugee La" - Praz - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I play my enemies like a game of chess, where I rest No stress, if you don't smoke sess, lest I must confess, my destiny's manifest In some Goretex and sweats I make treks like I'm homeless Rap orgies with Porgy and Bess Capture your bounty like Elliot Ness, yes Bless you if you represent the Fu But I'll hex you with some witch's brew If you're doo-doo, voodoo I can do what you do,... more... - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Where you at Eric? I know your favorites could fill several large volumes. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
The voice of racism preaching the gospel is devilish, A fake church called the prophet Muhammad a terrorist, Forgetting God is not a religion, but a spiritual bond, And Jesus is the most quoted prophet in the Qu'ran, They bombed innocent people, tryin' to murder Saddam, When you gave him those chemical weapons to go to war with Iran, This is the information that they hold back from... more... - Zu from AOD
8D When I listened to that album, I was hooked for weeks. Words of wisdom. - Zu from AOD
I take 7 mc’s put em in a line, And add 7 more brothas who think they can rhyme, Well, it’ll take 7 more before I go for mine, and that’s 21 mc’s ate up at the same time -Rakim, My Melody - Eric - Final Countdown
Rakim is a must. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Not hip hop, but...Dearly beloved/ We are gathered here today/ 2 get through this thing called life/ Electric word life/ It means forever and that's a mighty long time/ But I'm here 2 tell u/ There's something else/ The afterworld/ A world of never ending happiness/ U can always see the sun, day or night/ So when u call up that shrink in Beverly Hills/ U know the one - Dr Everything'll... more... - Katy S
Well now you're forced to listen to the teacher and the lesson / Class is in session so you can stop guessin / If this is a tape or a written down memo / See I am a professional, this is not a demo / In fact call it a lecture, a visual picture / Sort of a poetic and rhythm-like mixture / Listen, I'm not dissin but there's somethin that you're missin / Maybe you should touch reality,... more... - Eric - Final Countdown
It's hard getting written punctuation to match up with a rappers flow. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I been browsin', inspectin' X-Men comics / You know I collect 'em / The pens in my pocket, I must protect them / My ergonomic keyboard never leaves me bored / Shoppin' online for deals on some writable media / I edit Wikipedia--Weird Al Yankovic - MiniMage
All over the world hearts pound with the rhythm / Fear not of men because men must die / Mind over matter and soul before flesh / Angels for the pain keep a record in time / which is passing and running like a caravan freighter / The world is overrun with the wealthy and the wicked / But God is sufficient in disposing of affairs / Gunmen and stockholders try to merit my fear / But God is sufficient over plans they prepared - Mos Def - Victor Ganata
Top of the world, Yet I aint never left my head to turn and look back, Every second page is anthem, Perfected writ mood, In the perfect world I set the perfect mood, And in perverted abodes, I claim rogue, Enflame clothes and sing songs of underdepression love, Chemical imbalanceship, paranoia, My scientist fiction, I kick space raps that's down to Earth and, The kids that get dubs are... more... - Eric - Final Countdown
Well goodness gracious, let me just take this / Time out to pull a rhyme out, and update this / For you and yours, simply because / Some MCs have luck but suck / So I pluck 'em like feathers on the back of a chicken / 'Cause I’m mad like a pit when my man says "sick ’em" / Positive is the mindstate, but it could still mean that / I will kick a ill, malicious like mean rap. - Mark H
What's up kid? I know s**t is rough doing your bid, When the cops came you should've slid to my crib, F**k it black, no time for looking back it's done, Plus congratulations you know you got a son, I heard he looks like you, why don't your lady write you?, Told her she should visit, that's when she got hyper, Flippin, talk about he acts too rough, He didn't listen he be riffin' while... more... - Eric - Final Countdown
I got a letter from the government The other day, I opened and read it It said they were suckers, They wanted me for their army or whatever, Picture me given' a damn - I said never, Here is a land that never gave a damn, About a brother like me and myself Because they never did, I wasn't wit' it, but just that very minute...

They use the simple back and forth, the same, old rhythm that a baby can pick up, and join, right with them But their rhymes are pathetic, they think they copacetic using nursery terms, at least, not poetic on a educated base, intelligent wise as the record just turns, you learn, PLUS burn by the flame of the lyrics which cooks the human brain Providing overheating knowledge, by means... more... - Eric - Final Countdown
My Adidas walk through concert doors and roamed all over coliseum floors I stepped on stage, at Live Aid All the people gave and the poor got paid And out of speakers I did speak I wore my sneakers but I'm not a sneak My Adidas touched the sands of foreign lands with mic in hand I cold took command my Adidas and me close as can be, we make a mean team my Adidas and me, we get around together, rhyme forever and we won't be mad when we're caught in bad weather My Adidas.. -Run-DMC - Eric - Final Countdown

One more, my favorite verse from De La... I am Posdnous I be the new generation of slaves, here to make Papes to buy record exec rakes, for the pile of revenue I create, But I guess I don't get a cut because my rent's a month late, Product of a North Carolina cat who scratched the back of a pretty woman named Hattie, Who departed life just a little too soon and didn't see me grab the... more... - Eric - Final Countdown

I think I'd be OK if the high note of my creative career was about women's underwear. - Wirehead from Android
He had a next on Rah? Who knew? - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I didn't know until a good while later. There were actually a few hot songs on it, but come on...it's Sisqo. He's like the Dennis Rodman of R&B. - Rahsheen
*confesses to watching the first season of "Gone Country" on CMT with Sisqo* - LB needs a break.
Wow. Such an apt comparison. Good in a team environment. Hot mess on the solo tip. Sisqó = Rodman. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Exactly. And it's kinda sad. They were like..the last hot R&B group. Even got a reality show and (I think) they dropped another album...but no dice. - Rahsheen

earlier, I posted a very general statement of affection for my friendfeeding friends. In the comments on this post I shall endeavor to be more specific about the things I really love about you fine people.
I like pie - Johnny
I like that Johnny likes pie. And that Johnny connects so immediately and warmly with everyone. - Bren
I had delish key lime pie tonight. - Micah
I love all the foodies here. I have seen so many great recipes from anna, Steven Perez and a bevy of other food-o-philes on here. edit: Micah just made my point for me. - Bren
I Loves me some ZZ Top - Loud! - Brent - Yes I am
I love that people here have fun *here,* that they share their joy (and sorrow) with people all over the world who have become a close-knit group of friends. Real friends. - Bren
I love Jandy's insane passion for film. I don't really get it, but I love it, and I am glad there are people like her and Jon (among others) who just let their passions show, even if they are somewhat obscure, or if they get flak from the people who don't get them. - Bren
I love the musicians, Rob (atmos trio), Josh Haley, Helen, and everyone else who shares their incredible talents with us. - Bren
I love the writers - Higlet, Brent, Aden, momo and so many others who grace us with beautifully turned phrases on a regular basis. - Bren
I love seeing Kamilah's ff-inspired art roll through my feed. She captures the essence of friendfeed in a way that is primal, joyful, vibrant and warm. - Bren
I love RAP's vast and comprehensive strolls through musicology. - Bren
I love the politicos. Even when I don't agree with them. I love that there can be civil political discourse here, even when it seems impossible in the "real" world. - Bren
I love the photography. The talent possessed by Kol, Mellisa, Johnny, and many many others is beyond me, but I'm glad I get to enjoy it. - Bren
Oh, right... the librarians. don't even get me started on the librarians... so much awesomeness - who knew? - Bren
Wonderful post. Simply wonderful. - Absentee
Oh, Bren....(((((hugs))))) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA

I love Derrick. His honesty, openness, and willingness to share his life with us is disarming and endearing. - Bren
Thank you for making me smile, Bren! - Mary Carmen
I love the ff'ers who have moved on, but who made ff interesting to me at times when I thought I would just bail: Corie, Far, Haggis, among others... I am thankful that I had the opportunity to encounter these fascinating, fun, lovely people. Maybe someday they will come back to the fold, but even if they don't, I'll always be thankful for what they contributed. - Bren
I'm really glad that this post has made people happy. I will add to it as I think of people. :) - Bren
this is so great, not least because I dig the same people for the same reasons <3 - Starmama
I love Bren, because he slyly wore a sweater vest to the PDX meetup and gave me a ride home in his zoom-zoom mobile and didn't succumb to putting his hands all over me. It's tough. Many fail at it. - Derrick
It was especially difficult since we got "lost" and had to drive around Portland for an hour... :) - Bren

A: don't tell anyone, but you'll always be one of my absolute favorites. :) - Bren

One of the few Technomages not accompany his people on their departure to a higher plane of existence at the dawn of the Third Age of Mankind, little is known of the being who calls himself Eric. What is known is that he maintains the level of knowledge and wisdom among all of the advanced races of beings in the Interstellar Alliance. Eric was instrumental in defeating the Drakh Keeper program by instituting a patch that would repel the Keepers from their hosts. Wise in the ways of many computer systems, Eric's assistance was instrumental in designing the Excalibur, the advanced starship which located the cure for the Drakh plague that ravaged Earth. Eric divides his incredibly busy schedule between hunting down the remnants of the Shadow's allies, who would erase all knowledge from the galaxy and bring eternal darkness to all worlds, and spreading the gospel of maintaining proper security among all the known worlds, admonishing all sentient beings to patch their computer systems. - Steven Perez
And he loves old hip-hop and a nice cocktail! - Derrick
Yes, yes y'all! - Eric - Final Countdown

Alix Whitmire was an average high school student when one day, while walking along the shore, she found a man who lay half-dead. Nursing him back to health, she discovered that he was a prince of the fabled city of Atlantis. Upon his full recovery, she accompanied the prince to his underwater city, where members of the court who had tried unsuccessfully to kill him now concentrated their efforts on both of them. Fleeing to a forgotten lab, Alix volunteered to undergo a risky operation to help her better adapt to the crushing depths of the ocean. The operation went beyond anyone's expectations - Alix found herself imbued not only with the speed and strength of an Atlantean, but also possessed of the ability to summon and command the denizens of the deep, especially the otters. Using her newfound powers, Alix helped the prince restore his kingdom. She now patrols the high seas, protecting her new home against any and all enemies of the oceans. - Steven Perez
You are so good that this :) - comix aka martha

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread: Eat your vegetables! And chocolate. | King Arthur Flour – Baking Banter

"The following recipe takes advantage of zucchini’s aforementioned neutral flavor, plus its soft texture, to create nicely dense, dark-chocolate bread. Semisweet chips create soft little pools of fudge that complement the bread’s nicely moist texture very well, thank you. Are you ready to back off dissing your zukes, and put them to tasty use? Try our Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread." - John (bird whisperer) from Bookmarklet
Oh man, I still haven't made some chocolate zucchini bread! Stupid fires distracting me! Maybe I can make some if I get back early enough on Sunday. Sounds so good. - Jenny H.
I think they're unfair to zucchini, but I want to try this. - John (bird whisperer)
I'm making this in muffin format in a couple of weeks for my vacation. Though I'm subbing fig pieces for the chocolate chips. (and egg whites for the whole eggs, and apple sauce for the oil, and...I'm just a giant wet blanket) - Hookuh Tinypants
I made this over the weekend, and it was awesome. - John (bird whisperer)
Woot! - Derrick
I'm thinking of making this and taking it in to the library. What's the texture like? Bread or does it lean towards cake? - Derrick
OMG there's chocolate zucchini bread??? - Steve C, Team Marina
The texture is more like cake than bread. - John (bird whisperer)
WELP. - Derrick
If I made this my son would be eating zucchini! - Melly
I have no idea what Dutch cocoa is. Or all-purpose flour. To Google I go! - Melly
See, it's healthy... it's got vegetables! ;-) - John (bird whisperer)
Dutch cocoa is cocoa that doesn't have extra sugar. All-purpose flour is regular white flour (not whole-grain, not bread flour, etc.). - John (bird whisperer)
I'm guessing it is plain flour since you have to add baking soda & powder. Which means I should be able to use self-raising flour instead? - Melly
The generic cocoa powder I have on my baking shelf says "pure cocoa powder" in the ingredients, that's it. So I'm guessing that means no extra sugar. - Melly
TOTALLY GOING TO MAKE THIS. - Melly
Dutch processed cocoa should have a neutral Ph (it has been processed with an alkaline to take away some of the acidity.) It makes a difference depending on the leavening you're using (baking powder vs. baking soda.) Most baking cocoa you'd find at the store is dutch processed, at least it is here. Both natural, and Dutch processed, should have no sugar. - Jennifer Dittrich
I just put zucchini on the shopping list for next week. - Melly
I knew someone here would come up with a more sophisticated answer than mine. - John (bird whisperer)
Heh. I just have to have the low-acid stuff. I love chocolate too much not to have it :D - Jennifer Dittrich
I've made this recipe a few times, and it's been awesome each time. :-D I'll be making it again in a couple weeks. - John (bird whisperer)
i do have a bunch of grated zucchini in the freezer... - holly #ravingfangirl
Does the finished product freeze well? I was thinking I could slice some and put it in zip-lock bags in the freezer for Josiah's lunch box. And to stop me eating it all at once. - Melly
I don't know. I haven't tried freezing it. - John (bird whisperer)
Yes it does. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
:oD - Melly
If I can get through the next hour without passing out, I'm making this tonight! - Melly
I've made this for every post-concert reception, and it always disappears. - John (bird whisperer)

Pete's Got To Go
OK so we have a lot of Unshelved comics for Derrick :) But what other advice / support do we have? Me - remember that it's about people, not information, books or tools of any sort. Especially when the people *are* tools ;)
Thank you, Pete. :) - Derrick
Know who knows for when you don't know yourself. - Pete's Got To Go
meet/keep in touch with a bunch of a people you trust that you can bounce ideas off of, ask questions of, etc and i also suggest finding someone local that can help keep you sane as well - Sir Shuping is just sir
It is a very small profession - somewhere in your network there will be a link to almost anyone else in the profession. This is good and bad: things can haunt you for the rest of your career (don't burn bridges!) but it also means those connections are there to help when you want to get more involved and stuff. - ellbeecee
Honestly, I feel like I've already found such a great network of people here even in these early stages. Your suggestions and gentle nudges have helped me discover other people. Believe me, I'm grateful for that even though I'm still a year away from even applying to library school. - Derrick
Start writing. You can start submissions as soon as you start library school. Get scholarships to go to conferences. Without trying to pigeonhole you--you're a minority male, there are lots of scholarship and internship opportunities but you need to start applying NOW. http://ala.org/ala... - Hedgehog
By "small" I mean in the "it's a small world" sense - not that there aren't so many of us. - ellbeecee
Remember it is also an international profession, so feel free to imagine burning those bridges as you discuss it with folk in the UK ;) - Pete's Got To Go
You don't have to know everything - you just have to know where to look it up or whom to ask. The LSW is wonderful for that. :) - LB needs a break.
Derrick, do not play down your gender or your race. Even though there are more than you may think, there are not enough black or male librarians/library professionals out there. - ♫Maurice the Dolphin♫
There will be things that piss you off royally, whether about the profession, a specific workplace or whatever. Have someone you really trust (inside or outside the profession) that you can vent to. Then figure out what you're willing to live with and what you want to work on changing. Then do what you need to do. - ellbeecee
Don't like something? Wait a week or a month. It'll change. Everything changes, and rapidly. (*edit: also, if you don't like it, do something about it, if it's within your power) - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
Some people have librarian... fantasies. Use this power wisely. - Pete's Got To Go
Oh my. - Derrick
Yeah. You;re adding another cliché to your already full plate ;) And what colleen said about change is true; learn to surf :D - Pete's Got To Go
Make sure to never consider yourself above things whether it be shelving or plunging a toilet. Also--be careful of condescension and condescending based on library types (I'm better than you cause I'm academic and you're public/children's...etc) - Hedgehog
don't let people run you over because you're "just a librarian" librarians have power...use it wisely. - Sir Shuping is just sir
You all have no idea how incredibly you've *already* been. Much thanks to each of you. I'm incredibly lucky to have found you. - Derrick
*snickers behind hand* QUICK! Get the door and lock it before he can escape! - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
Most useful piece of advice I *ever* got about library school was only 4 words: Don't believe the hype. Goes right along with what Steve said up there. - Catherine Pellegrino
Best advice? They're only books: Nobody dies. - Jenica
Oh! Yes, that's the other one: there is no such thing as a bibliographic emergency. - Catherine Pellegrino
Librarian help :) - Pete's Got To Go
Of course, we've learned from The Librarians -- and Buffy the Vampire Slayer -- that there are such things as bibliographic emergencies. :-) - bentley

What's the longest piece of writing you've very memorized and recited publicly? (e.g. soliloquy from a play, a poem, essay, verses from a holy text, a song, etc...)
A few pages from Hamlet (Act II, Scene 2) for high school honors English. - Stephen Mack
Stephen, cool. Was you assignment specifically to memorize that bit of Hamlet? - Micah
Steve, how long did it take you to feel like you had it down pat? - Micah
The entire musical, Les Misérables [excepting the strictly male numbers]. - Jenny H.
(Sidenote: *squeee*—I looove Les Misérables) - Micah
Me too, MICHAH. Still. :) - Jenny H.
The Hamlet soliloquy. I was so nervous my voice was quavering. The teacher thought I was emoting and wanted to put me in a Shakespeare contest. I declined. - Spidra Webster
I read the book in Jr High and saw the play in Orange County (a long time ago) in that theatre with the rotating circular floor. Kelly, when did you perform it? - Micah
Paul Revere's Ride - Jessie
Steve, different but the same: forgetting my formation steps during a field performance in my HS marching band—yeah, the sweat that starts pouring out, oye. :) - Micah
Spidra I don't whether or not to say you doth protested too much. :>) - Micah
Jessie, what was the occasion for performing Paul Revere? - Micah
One or another of the French poems I recited in French class in high school. The poems weren't very long, maybe 20 lines or so. - John (bird whisperer)
John, did you take much French, or just one year? - Micah
Probably Mark Antony's speech in Julius Caesar. - Akiva
My social security number - Todd Hoff
Todd, I effectively have two—have only one memorized. - Micah
Akiva, where did you perform it? - Micah
Madison Square Garden. - Akiva
(And by that, I mean 10th grade English class.) - Akiva
Well. - Micah
I think it was 5th grade history class? - Jessie
I played Prospero in The Tempest. The guy had a bajillion lines, including one extremely long monologue. - chrisofspades
The Highwayman (http://www.potw.org/archive...). In 7th or 8th grade? - Marianne
Not sure. I did theatre for 15+ years, and memorized a whole crapton of plays and musicals, and then a lot of monologues for various theatre competitions. I'd be hard pressed to figure out which was the longest. - Hookuh Tinypants
Either the Jaberwocky or the Centepede's poems about Aunt Spiker and Aunt Sponge from James and the Giant Peach. - kendrak
Oof. Good lord, all those prayers in catechism...*shudders* between first communion and confirmation...it's no surprise I still remember every single prayer now, a full 25 years after I stopped attending church. - Hookuh Tinypants
The Lord's Prayer, probably. I can't remember having memorized and recited anything else. - Eivind
The Bells by Edgar Allen Poe. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
the opening soliloquy from Richard III, I think - Bren
Jaques' monologue from As You Like It - Kristin
I think it was a sonnet for english class. I forgot which grade. - Rodfather
Apparently I've blocked it from memory. I can recite The Beasties Boys "Paul Revere" from memory though, FWIW. - Derrick
Dozens of old ballads when I was a Folkie back in the 60's. Barbara Allen, Mary Hamilton, The Unquiet Grave, The Bonnie Earl of Murray, stuff like that. The "Quality of Mercy" speech just so I could study it. A couple more Shakespeare things for English class. Always wanted to learn the Canterbury Tales Prologue in Middle English but never got very far. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
My best man speech for my best man. Three pages written I think. Still stands as greatest in history. :) - Steve C, Team Marina
1 Corinthians chapter 13. - Steven Perez
