On Tour Madlib is Heard: Detritus
posted by April 22 at 11:11 AMon
I am I-5 southbound here, driving to Los Angeles to play. Madlibís Beat Konducta India has been the theme of the highway think-tank. Beat Konducta India is thirty-four instrumental hip-hop tracks using music, sounds, and samples from Indian cinema. Itís filthied and slow, and all the tracks are around two minutes long. Madlib scans into a cut, you see what he wants you to see, then he’s out. The tracks are short, but heís not in a hurry. The 70 beats per minute lumber like Godzilla through a city. The monsterís too big to be quick. He was minding his own business until Delhi got in his way.
During the Seattle - LA drive, hereís what recurs: Consumption of coffee to be alert. And consumption of water because the coffee dehydrates. Then itís hard to make time because the bladder says, ďMe me me.Ē
And so enters the risk of the Little John Portable Urinal for men, which came with the Lady J female adapter. The Lady J looks complicated. Can you do the Lady J and drive?:
Or, the Pit Stop:
Hereís the Pit Stop, the portable urinal designed for truckers that’s tailor-made for guys and gals with promises to keep. The receiving end is designed to be mounted on the wall of a truckís sleeper cab, while the leakproof container at the other end of the five-foot transfer hose is self-sealing with a quick-disconnect mechanism. The 1.25-gallon tank’s carrying handle facilitates easy transport of all of that detritus without danger of spillage, and is probably big enough for a non-stop coast-to-coast haul.
Without danger of spillage. Without danger of spillage? Look at that thing. There is much danger of spillage.
Detritus - de∑tri∑tus n:
1. debris or discarded material
