Before rap metal was a thing, the collaboration seemed revolutionary. Yet it sounded natural, as if it were meant to be. So monolithic is the ensuing wall of noise that one might wonder where the Bomb Squad ends and Anthrax begins, and it provides the perfect backdrop for Chuck D’s aggressive cadence. The only real surprise to “Bring the Noise” was that Scott Ian could rap. Otherwise, it made sense, and continues to serve as a tidy demonstration of what was so appealing about Public Enemy and Anthrax, hip hop and thrash metal. Disparate styles stomped on the common ground of swagger. (via)
Bon Appetit from June 1991. As seen in the Kaiser Hospital waiting room. So confused by this. Has it been here since 1991? Who is reading this? Did someone bring it along with them and leave it for others to enjoy? Also as a side note: I am quite amazed by how much foodie douchebaggery has changed in 20 years. There is no stress on fresh and local, no food trucks, no comfort food renaissance. If this 1991 issue of Bon Appetit is to be trusted, everyone seemed to be eating swordfish and rice pilaf on really nice white decks in the Hamptons.
