- RADIO FASHION TURNUP WAS TOO TRILL
- CHILI BOWL 2012 by Ty
The chili bowl contest at potrero park is gnar.
The bowl itself is legendary but the mayhem that goes down is fucked. Plus
there is a chili cook off if you got the patience to wait, but beer is all
thats really needed. One tall boy down.
This one dude had no shoes on and skated a tiny
little skateboard, so that was rad. Manfire did a frontside flip into one of
the little bowls, this other dude jumped into the deep end caveman style. He
slapped a bunch of times, that was tight. Two tall boys down.
These other fools crashed into each other, one
of them looked like 12 years old but he was shredding like a man so he gets my
vote. Robbie Russo was killing, the big deal was the switch backside noseblunt
in the deep by Eddie Moreno. Gnar. Three tall boys down.
Guest appearances by Jamie Hustle and some traveling hippies from Canada that wanted to buy weed, other highlights included Andy Roy yelling “Get it Robbie!!!” as loud as possible while Russo took his last run. Four tall boys down. Ended it with a El Pastor and more beer at pops. Thanks Chili Bowl dudes, I’ll lurk out next year.
- JOSH FALK INTERVIEW FROM ISSUE 4:
“rough like a flask of absinthe down a sore throat…………………”
It’s funny how I met this girl. We (Reese, $hitbag, Shanti, Larry and I) went to MILK to meet with some girls. The girls ended up bailing before we got there and instead we actually watched the performers at the club. Hopie Spitshard not only stuck out from the rest but she actually ripped. After her set we approached her like a pack of wild kooks trying to push the zine and demanded some sort of interview. She was surprisingly receptive of our tactics and agreed to meet for a beer. Shorty is mad cute but packs a mean punch of enthusiasm. Not your stereotypical “chick rapper”. Hopie has dope presentation, delivery, she’s clever and again cute (hot). The Bay Area has a new dip on the scene and we are very proud to have an interview with her. Collaborations with Del The Funk Homosapien (the song and video for “Space Case” is ultra clean) and she works with some other heavy hitters as well. We are excited to see whats to come from this one. We will be checking back in with her on the regular. Thank you Hopie. Keep up the good work and spread the LURK.
LS: Welcome to the Lump Sum, the Lurk Force, Us Weirdos. Who’s Hopie, where are you from, whats ur style?
Hopie: Hopie is a rapper from San Francisco. I am an independent artist who likes to just release things and rap. (laughs).
LS: You got mad confidence, who/what motivates you?
Hopie: Thank you. Seriously, if I’m on stage I just really wanna be there. People are there, there’s mad energy and it’s hella fun. So that’s what motivates me. I wanna put on a better show because that’s what people deserve when they come out to see you.
LS: Dope. What is one of your biggest pet peeves/what erks you?
Hopie: When people bite their nails. I don’t like that shit. There’s worm eggs under your nails!!!!
LS: That’s ugly. You gonna start a Asian Girl Mob?
Hopie: Most definitely will not start an Asian Girl Mob in the foreseeable future. No disrespect to any Asian Girl Mobs already out there or any other girl mobs out there, but I won’t.
LS: Are you single?
Hopie: No comment.
LS: Ever try acid/shrooms?
Hopie: I have never tried acid but I have done shrooms several times. (laughs) They’re awesome. I really like mushrooms.
LS: Haha, agreed. So, you talk about aliens in the Space Case song and other instances in your music, are you a believer?
Hopie: I do believe in aliens!!!!!!!!! I think it is incredibly arrogant of us to even think that we are the most intelligent life forms that have ever been able to adapt in the universe. So, yeah, there’s definitely aliens. Am I one of them? I don’t know, are you? Probabaly.
LS: Probably. What you got for the table this year?
Hopie: I’ve been in the studio like crazy for the past few months. So yeah, new music is coming out, a grip of videos and some other shit.
LS: Shout outs?
Hopie: I wanna send a shout out to Orrian here, and my new friend JM skateboarder extraordinaire, all the HOPIE heads out there, my producers and Lump Sum.
LS: I want to send your contact info to some homies in LA and also to anyone who reads this?
Hopie: You could peep me on twitter, facebook, youtube, keywords: hopie spits hard or www.hopiespitshard.com, that’s probably the best way to get a hold of me.
Hopie: Killer (in a surfer dude accent).
LS: If you won the lottery would you take the Lump Sum or Payments?
Hopie: I would take the Lump Sum so I could buy everything I need to buy and then not have to worry about that shit and just continue on with my life you know what I mean. Buy a house all that shit and plus, who doesn’t want Lump Sums?
JM: Grab High for them Lump Sums.
Hopie: You’re funny dude. You guys are cool.
LS: Thank you Hopie.
Hopie: “tits!!” as she opens one of the zines
LS: Yeah there are tits in there.
