This Raw Cold Life

This raw cold life is a beautiful thing. —Mos Def

My name is Shaun and I make paintings, drawings, and poems. My art is a reaction (one of many) to the countless and varied inspirations I encounter. This is an informal collection of such things, too scattered and far-reaching to be condensed into a single label.

  1. The Other Dream Team (preview)

    Documentary on the ‘92 Lithuanian basketball team…

    Understandably I was all about the Dream Team at the time, but I remember my dad pointing out this team to me during the Olympics, telling me how his grandparents were from Lithuania

  4. Marlins' Ozzie Guillen apologizes over Castro flap - Boston.com

    I was trying to watch Sportscenter, but I changed the channel because I was sick of all the anti-Castro propaganda. None of these mainstream outlets are even providing any background on what supposedly makes Castro so bad.

    All that matters is that this is America and we hate him. The ESPN anchor referred to Cuba as the island Castro “took over” more than fifty years ago. “Freed it from a brutal dictator” would’ve been a better choice of words, but that’s just me. I know it hasn’t been all good since the Revolution, but the portrayal is ridiculously one-sided. It’s a real petty look for the US.

    What if a 1950’s manager had made favorable comments about Batista? You know he wouldn’t be getting suspended. You can be responsible for as much brutality as you want as long as you stay Washington’s dog.

    This shit is all so obvious. Why do people keep buying it? Just bring out Tech so he can “run through Little Havana yelling Viva Fidel!

Never thought I’d say this, but much respect to Lebron and the Heat.

  8. Collapse Rant

    That collapse was not Francona’s fault. I understand the way he stuck too long with guys that where clearly over the hill. Wasting all that time waiting for Wake to win his 200th while he pitched ineffectively hurt the team in the long run. But this choke was not his fault. Yes, he probably would’ve let Mike Timlin pitch the 8th inning of game 162, but still, he was the best manager we’ve ever had. It’s the ownership signing all these soft ass players and trading away the greatest hitter we’ve ever had (yes, I know Ted Williams played for the Sox) in a move that most likely cost us a chance at another title in 2008. There’s just no life on the Red Sox anymore. I pretty much knew they’d blow their lead, and as I watched them do it via inning-by-inning updates, I wasn’t that upset. I was almost happy because I knew they that needed something to wake them up. I want to bring back Millar and Pedro and Trot just so they can teach these new guys something about guts and backing your teammates. Adrian Gonzalez is forever punked in my mind by that sorry bullshit about “God’s will” and such. Carl Crawford, admittedly a player I’ve always liked, is much more likeable as he confessed to the public that he’d had a terrible season and had let down his team and its fans. At least he’s strong enough to say that. I don’t want more short, ugly players that appear to play hard because they look like Pedroia and have got no grace. I’m sick of this racist ass city’s bullshit enabling. Get rid of these entitled motherfuckers or Boston’s going to just end up like the Yankees, but without the World Series to go along with it.

    Says Delonte: “Parents come to me and say, ‘Thank you. My son’s bipolar and nobody understands him, and it just means so much for you to speak on it.’ I hear that so much from people, it’s unreal.”
