My title of this entry is a reminder to myself that quality is something one must strive for, as it does not automatically come about it’s own accord. I feel like my last entry was rushed and lacking.
Watched Straight Outta Compton Director’s cut last night. Forgot how well I knew the story and songs. It’s been a minute I hear the people pretending to be hip say, so I’ll pretend to be hip too. There is a kind of immaturity to so much of what I used to be attracted too, so much so that I conveniently forget. So it was a fun watch that illuminated some of the band’s story that I didn’t know. For instance I forgot or never knew Dr. Dre was in NWA. How did I forget that?
