Seriously, man. Worst. B-boy. Ever.

I'm envious. I would love to muster up the courage to go to a class. I watched too many episodes of 'Beef' this weekend. The segment about Kool Moe Dee and Busy Bee was very eye-opening. You don't realize how such a seemingly small gesture had this huge rippling effect throughout the culture.

You should give it a shot! My teacher says that the hardest part is getting the rhythm down, although my aching joints don't necessarily agree.

There's so much interesting stuff that I'm unaware of coming into this--that clip being just a small example. I've never really been a big consumer of hip-hop before, in any way. So it's definitely been educational. I'm just trying not to turn it into a kind of cultural tourism.
