Going Underground

Whilst researching music history by genre, I came across this fun "map".
One question: Where's Biggie???
UPDATE:  I found Biggie up by Nas & Mobb Deep :)

Atlantic City



I went to Atlantic City for my cousin's 30th birthday celebration this past weekend.  My only familiarity with the place was Louis Malle's Atlantic City and a few other gangster movie references (most recently  in American Hustle), all suggesting a rather dim afterglow succeeding the town's glory days (circa 1920s-1940s). There were definitely dark vibes- the palpable economic depression, those pawn shops that will accept anything, that scrambled desperation that comes with gambling addiction territory.  Despite that, I managed to have a good time. This is, after all, one of my closer family members, second in line to my firstborn-ness on my dad's side of the family.  Smoke-stenched casinos and cheesy nightclubs (which I admittedly really enjoyed) aside, the seaside in winter is a beautiful place.

Just what the subject says... fantastic!

About Me

My photo
I'm an LA transplant now living in Brooklyn. I develop film projects by day, write at night, and have a dangerous predilection for vintage Robinson Golluber scarves- this blog serves as a tiny window to everything else I do when I'm not satisfying those first three passions. I'm trying to blog more and tweet less @annabelleqv. What about you?
