The Blue Scholars, My Neighbors, and Snowpocalypse

Thanks to the excellent Rainier Valley Post, I discovered that neighborhood hiphopsters The Blue Scholars had put up a video they shot during Snowpocalypse 08.

Longtime readers might remember that I posted another Blue Scholars video (Joe Metro) that showed some of the depth of Seattle and some scenes I know too well. I even commented that I’d probably ridden the 48 bus with those guys at some point.

Well, the new Snowpocalypse video is even closer to home! Want to see New Holly? This video is full of scenes of the streets near my house, the townhouses of Phase 3, the fences and porches of my neighbors. You can see the intersections we drive through, catch a glimpse of the scary sub-par Safeway we try to avoid, the view of the power lines that arch over the Chief Sealth walking trail that winds through New Holly uniting the Phases. Holy cow, Geo and Sabzi aren’t just my neighbors, they’re my neighbors!

  • Fantastic! Tonight when I turned off I-5 and drove up Graham there was a car ahead of me that had a single bumper sticker, a wonderful calligraphic Blue Scholar logo. I found myself wondering if maybe they were from somewhere in the neighborhood. And now, even if that wasn’t them, now you tell me.

    I didn’t know about Rainier Valley Post, either, I’ll show Lisa.
