My favorite movie of his was The Hitcher. I must have seen that movie around 6 times on vhs during the 80's

Monumental loss. Her prologues are the most complex, yet simple (and irrefutable) declarations of humanity. She taught me how to think before any other writer. Woke, before woke.

Years ago, I was in Princeton NJ for "Communiversity" day. I was with family including my young son. I went hunting for the Humanities department. It was a small, square shaped building where I essentially broke in from interior quad...It was deserted. I was hoping to find her, hoping for a glimpse, or maybe a brief introduction. She wasn't there of course, but the rest of the day I felt better, lighter, and stronger for having been in her space.

Couldn't agree more. Her prose has been a huge inspiration to me multiple times in life.

I have no familiarity with rap past the 90s...... and haven't ever explored it, don't really know where to start. But damn, this just hooked me immediately.
