Trizzy’s Mindspray: Pretzels

Posted on Jul 17th, 2008 by A-Trak

Ever since the Seinfeld episode about “these pretzels are making me thirsty” I’ve had what you could call a mild obsession with pretzels. I don’t actually eat them much, I just like talking about pretzels. Good conversation starter. But upon closer inspection my rapport with pretzels is very peculiar. I really like big pretzels, the soft kind you’d get at a ball game with cheese dip, but I really dislike the small, dry kind they give you on the plane. I can’t think of any other food that I love so much in one variation but find so yucky in the other. The big ones are so chewy, you can practically see steam come out when you take a bite. The small ones are so bland, what’s the point? They provide zero satisfaction. Read More

Tales of Lost Necklaces

About 3 weeks ago I was shopping with my brother Dave (like we always do at this time) and we stopped by this spot BBlessing in the lower east side.

Name That Sample: So Exciting

Posted on Jul 14th, 2008 by A-Trak

One of the questions I get asked most often on MySpace, aside from “how old are you now?” and “are you REALLY the head of the Kwik-E-Mart?” is the name of this particular song. If you search my name on YouTube, this “A-Trak in China” clip is always the 1st or 2nd result, it’s taken from my DVD (Sunglasses Is A Must, a hood classic) and people always ask me about it. You wanna know? I’ll tell you who it is…. after the jump! (Ooooh snap!) Read More
