Quotes About The Abstract

Sundry combinations of these three strains will probably account for all my odd tastes and eccentricities.
— H.P. Lovecraft —

If you're reading these words, perhaps it's because something has kicked open the door for you, and you're ready to embrace change.

Back in the days when I was a teenager,
Before I had status, and before I had a pager,
You could find The Abstract, listening to hip-hop,
My pops used to say it reminded him of be-bop.
I said, 'Well daddy don't you know that things go in cycles.
The way that Bobby Brown is just ampin' like Michael.
It's all expected, things are for the lookin',
If you got the money, Quest is for the bookin'.
