Deeper than a mermaid



Internet (read: baby goat) goin nutz:

-I'm kind of double-posting here, but I want to reiterate- Skinny has a fine interview withthe one and only El-Producto over at Gat. If you haven't read it yet, do so immediately before continuing. He's also got a bunch of photos of stuff that he did recently, if you're into that kind of thing.

-There's a new piece by "a drug-crazed former jai-alai star" friend of ours over at Phawker.com which features a short bit of interview with RJD2 about how he's getting hated on for switching over to the singer-songwriter side of things.

-Lastly, we're about to bring a new member on board here at JS2000. I don't know if he's gonna want to roll with a pseudonym or not, so he'll remain nameless until his grand appearance. Let it be known he plans to write about "football, beer and rap." He'll fit in quite nicely.

-Double lastly, it's a graphical dissertation on This Is Why I'm Hot by Rob Harvilla the Village Voice- a great piece and a kind of distillation of our Rap Scientist ethos. For example, I always prefer to think of Nas as a box-and-whiskers plot kind of on the bimodal side of things, whereas Skinny tends to think he's more like the graph of logarithmic bacterial growth in an isolated medium. But all this pales in comparison to our upcoming interview with one of Rap Science's best kept secrets out of MIT. Did I mention I have a nerd blog?
