SN1:EP9 “The Barber of Sunset Park”By WTA — 7 years ago
This week I visit Eric Aleman, owner of the storied King of Kings Barber Shop in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. I’ve been going to him for a couple years and it’s always an odyssey which begins on my scalp and ends in my heart.
Eric, like a lot of good barbers, is able to step in and out of conversation. He’ll talk if you want to talk. Or he’ll just step back and keep working on your hair. That’s part of why I like him.
He’s not only a really solid barber, he’s also a talented lyricist, hip-hop artist/ whatever you want to call it. He’s a founding member of BLKLYST. Who you can check out playing at Littlefield’s or here on youtube.
If you listen real close here you can hear him shaving my neck at one point. It’s pretty hard to talk w a knife to your neck, but I did my best.Post Views: 2,742
SN1:EP6 “Ali, Meet Chango”By WTA — 7 years ago
Ali Pearl, author of the recent New York Times Modern Love article ‘On Tinder, Off Sex,’ and I discuss: the intimacy of listening to Enya together; our emotional exhibitionism; and a grudge I had against her for not putting me in her article. I also take her to meet Chango—those badass EDM subway performers in Union Square wearing Mexican wrestling masks you may have been lucky enough to experience. :: On Tinder, Off Sex :: Ali’s BlogPost Views: 2,802
SN5:EP6 “Too Many Wizards”By WTA — 3 years ago@haleydrizcoll is our traveling companion today. The joyous peril begins with a traditional pre-show de-crystalling ceremony in front of Andy’s place. Then: it’s fronting English in front of a Natural Grocers; talking exchange students at a mile-high Asian market; soccer hooligans in a middle school parking lot at sunset; and a suburban Vaquero appearing out of the vapor to guide our spirits back home.
