A look at what's going on in Trinidad, on H Street, and in the larger area north of Capitol Hill.
amanda mcclements is foxy
Om nom nom! And the sundries look pretty good too!
Off topic:Inked, I think its a small blemish on your otherwise great blog that you still don't have a Fat Trel post. In that spirit, you should post something on the new book "Once Upon a Time in Chocolate City: Son of a Street Fiend." I saw it advertised at Inspire BBQ and then picked up a copy on 8th and H last night. It starts a little slow but I really enjoyed it. The area is heavily featured in it also...
h street II:*gag*start ur own murderous gangsta blog. *gross*
Poo -Bugger off. Go write some more fecal matter related posts no one gives a sh%t about. The recent history the book and Fat Trel represent is an important part of the history of our neighborhood. By the way, didn't you move out of this neighborhood?
H Street LL,I'll look into it.
Chief Keef & Fat Trel video shot in NE DC:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGMVd4kRacQ
Thanks @ Inked and Oboe!Guns are a bit much in that one. This "Benning Rd (flyer than you)" is more a song everyone can get in to. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGUI2JmKQKQ
"Remember back on Benning Road/Fucking hos and stealing clothes" (And that's the least of it).Sorry, can't get into it. The decent music doesn't compensate for the misogynist/misanthropic/misguided lyrics.
@H Street LL:Yeah, that one's a bit "shooty". Though I did learn a cool new DC gang sign. Will be flashing that one at the next DC Bocce League meet-up!
I watched this video and it made me sad. I can't believe people have such warped ideas of what success in live is (money, guns, drugs, people fearing you...). It left me feeling like the world is a horrible place. Then later in the day I saw this video and it reminded me that not everyone is warped. http://vimeo.com/40000072#
" i be shittin on the bitches"fat trel is so much what is wrong with dc.i pity the child that listens to him.
This blog doesn't post about music.
That's kind of a dodge, since even if this blog did post about music, the contents of Trel's lyrics dont really jibe with what one would expect to see on FT. I agree with the above posters--if LL wants to spread the misguided gospel of Fat Trel he should do so on his own blog or at least a forum where his thuglife-glorifying tastes will find a more receptive audience.
Anons - get a handle. Seriously.@Alan Page - you are one of the best posters here, but I disagree with you on that statement. Numerous postings about music at Gallery O/H, HR 57, other events etc show that that is not the case. If there are other bands that are very pertinent to the neighborhood I would love to see them featured here also. I am talking about a one post a year type of feature only. Just my opinion.BTW the book doesn't glorify "the thug life." I thought it provided an interesting look at life in the neighborhood in 89-90. Sherwood Rec is featured, H Street Connection, 9th and I, etc. Also, in the article in WCP (and the feature in WP), Trel was presented as articulate and as being involved in a lot of community events. How do ya'll know what people who read FT listen to/are interested in? I know plenty of readers who listen to hip-hop. In conclusion, props to ya'll for listening and responding, though. Honestly.Oh, and @ Poo - you are cool with me.
I think posting about music would be good additions to the blog. But the original blog entry is about the really attractive woman with that purple thing in her hair and some type of American food.
HSII-we're cool. i just can't help being an ass 98 percent of the time. :)
I am aware that there is a rumor that someone known to many on H Street might have recently passed away. Please do not post about this until there is official confirmation of the rumor. I would hate to find out from a blog, or twitter, that someone I knew had died before it was officially out there. Let us please be sensitive to this person's family and friends.
sorry, dudes. I'm still kicking. I have a back-up breathing regulator set to a panic switch, and I have an unmatched ability to choose safe words that are guttural, yet distinct.

I bought it from one of the guys in front of Rite Aid. I just called Inspire BBQ and they don't sell it. On the inside of the back cover it appears you can buy it from Amazon Kindle or B&N Nook (there is also a mail order option). It is fifteen for a paperback. Note that its written in sort of a spoken word style...
I knew there couldn't be this many posts about actually shopping at Salt & Sundry. There are probably more comments here than that joint has had customers.
