Sensa huma, Will!  If I stopped my snarky ways, I would be nothing.  Understatement, I would be negative, less that nothing.  I would be subterranean, total garbage, wriggly goo under the trash can!


I don’t want to be any of that, so I keep my sensa huma.

I don’t know what that is, but I play the sax.  I tried to do hip hop on it.  I didn’t even need to move my fingers.  But no one recognized it.  I can’t imagine playing Name That Tune in hip hop.  Think about it: the Beatles were so great, but decades later they violinized it and made it into elevator music.  How will hip hop ever be violinized when the surviving fans are in their 60s?


>…  I can turn you on to some if you wish…


Eh, probably at least 4 decades too late for that, me lad.  Fun aside, not even kiddng.  I did DNA and learned I have a second cousin once removed who is a hip hop star.  His name is Shinoda.  His mother and I are second cousins, so the rap star is second once removed.  I talked to her (my second cousin) on the phone, she seemed very nice.  Never met her in person.


Hipsters, is there a rap star Shinoda who is in a group called Lincoln Park?  I looked it up once and hated the music, so I fear I won’t get turned on by it now.
