This was my favorite of the illustrations in Schmuck Diaries. The illustration for the last chapter in the book, the story was very short but effective. Adam Kessler, Seth Kushner’s comic persona, has been dumped once again. Plans had been made to go to a nice restaurant in the city but with the turn of events he finds himself at the local chinese takeout. While waiting for his food a young boy named Ken, comes up to him and prophesizes that he’ll be married by the time he’s 32.Later when he gets home he opens up the fortune cookie that came with his meal that reads: “No one can walk backwards into the future.”
Four years later at the age of 32 he shows that fortune to his new bride.
Hip-hop crew abruptly disband one month after release of surprise album
Less than one month after releasing their surprise LPNiggas on the Moon, experimental hip-hop crew Death Grips have broken up. The group posted a picture of their farewell message — written on a napkin — to their Facebook page. A representative for the group confirmed the band’s breakup to Rolling Stone.
"We are now at our best and so Death Grips is over. We have officially stopped. All currently scheduled live dates are canceled. Our upcoming double album The Powers That B will still be delivered worldwide later this year via Harvest/Third Worlds Records. Death Grips was and always has been a conceptual art exhibition anchored by sound and vision. Above and beyond a ‘band.’ To our truest fans, please stay legend.”
