<--- self portrait of me listening
Now that I've said good things...it was not a good show today. The first one I didn't finish, or enjoy really. There was just an overall lack of creativity to the games and somewhat stilted energy. Using the ankle thing as it was told in the monologue was boring and the best part of the car shitter was that it turned into the face borrower. The initiator in the 3rd scene was awkwardly setting it up and a minute in it still wasn't clear if they were at a post office or a guy's house. It sounded like the other performer was put in the spot where he had to define the unusual aspect of it. I just couldn't get into listening today and I am sorry I've only written on a day I'm complaining about a free show I listen to religiously.

- On becoming the superhero called Bobby Digital, splitting his identity, and permanently relocating to LA: "I hung out in the hood in South Central, puffin' weed, smoking sherm sticks, taking mushrooms, kicking it with the Black Knights [...]. I was teaching them Mathematics [the Nation of Islam's system of religious numerology] but also exposing them to my lifestyle--they were living the life of a hip-hop star through me, but they didn't have a record out."
- From his LA base, the RZA/Bobby Digital became a class-morphing jet-setter: "One day you're at [his ex-wife's] home in New Jersey having dinner with your family--which I tried to keep together. The next you're in L.A., staying in the Presidential Suite of the Chateau Marmont. You got pounds of weed, bottles of sherm, and you're about to go out with a club with five girls. They're all yours, baby, and two of them are sisters--and I don't mean black girls, I mean siblings."
- Eventually, the Bobby Digital thing got too weird even for the RZA: "I definitely took that game to the extreme. I took it to the point where I was getting ready to roll out at night on some Green Hornet shit: had a suit built for me like the Dark Knight's--literally invulnerable to .45 bullets and knives--had that Suburban, which I called the Black Tank, made AK- and bombproof up to government-security-level standards. I even had a butler almost ready to act as my Kato."
