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: 2,637
SN4:EP3 “Boat Act”By WTA — 4 years agoTim Duffy, comedian, writer guy for Comedy Central, takes Andy along on his daily commute from Staten Island into the city.It’s an everyday trip Tim’s been taking for years, but Andy still finds it exotic, which makes him feel a little like a hayseed. Also, on this Valentine’s episode, Andy gets into the thick of it re: what it means to be in love at 41 and how he’s worried he’ll have to start closing the kitchen cabinet doors when he’s finally living with someone for the first time. (Note: Staten Island Ferry is noisy so the audio isn’t perfect here.)Post Views: 4,366
