    No, it's not a bad thing. But it isn't a bicycle, either. Same as dirt bikes. I don't mind them on trails that are designated for motorized use. But it's nice to have trails with no motors, too.

    2020 may be pretty fucked, but there's been so much dope hip hop coming out the last few months, and there's been teasers of more on the way.

    Same. And when I say I'm from LI, the reply is usually something like "my college roommate was from Huntington, do you know Jimmy Anderson", like everyone on that tiny little island knows each other.
