Shortly after I met Macklemore at Evergreen State College sometime in 2003, he sent me about 67 messages on MySpace (a new thing back then) asking for beats for the debut album he was working on. Like the buster I was in 2003, I pretty much ignored most of his messages. Ok, all of his messages.
Well Macklemore, that day has come. You are becoming far too popular for me to ignore and it’s better that I try and associate myself with your inevitable success as an artist before the opportunity escapes me. I have remixed “The Town” and used my Rollei to take a picture of one our favorite burger spots to function as the artwork for its internet release.
Certainly, I chose this photo because that place is a Town staple and we love those burgers. More importantly, however, it’s the name of the restaurant (without the “s”) that reminds me of my behavior towards you in 2003.
Now get it.
