    yeah, as i was typing i was ac tually thinking that the name of the author wasn't anywhere near as important as the idea that you were drawing the parallel between lux's writing and iconic author's writing. Now that I think for the purpose any famous author's name does pretty nicely.

    It's not really fair because he's actually writing poetry/shit with meter involved, but i always thought lux had a similar descriptive style to gabriel garcia marquez. intrinsically poetic, not one wasted word, substantiative meaning behind legitimately every sentence. Can't read a marquez book without giving each and every passage serious thought (because you'll miss too much and the rest won't make as much sense), can't listen to a lux verse without doing the same.

    This makes me want to go run back all of Lux's battles, lol. The intro. was a good look. Picture definitely could be better but what can you do (besides hitting him on twitter or facebook, maybe he'll give you one) though. Besides a few writing errors, I love the writing on one. I feel like this specific excerpt is what you want to do with all of the battlers. This really captured a general view of who Lux is inside the ring and outside of it almost. I definitely need that hard copy of these though. Or digital version so I can print it out on my own or throw it on the Kindle. I'll buy it either way. I hope Verb is in this 2 by the way.

    A nitpick, but change "bodying" at the end of the third paragraph to "victory". Non-battle fans may have no idea what "bodying" means.

    Or if you want to use a stronger phrase/word, maybe something like "leading to a one-sided and overpowering victory"...or something like that.

    You can get them cheap as shit online as well. I think I got a short one, like 2 or 3 feet long, on Ebay for like 2 bucks including shipping that works just fine.

    Yea, I think it'll actually work fine with this cord or whatever. At first I thought the recorder was not capable of doing it or something, but now I think its okay. At least I hope (here is the recorder: Olympus VN6000 Digital Voice Recorder Review – Bestcovery)

    Thanks Job1

    Edit: Actually reading the reviews there seems to be conflicting opinions as to whether this will work with a computer lol

    Thanks for the compliments bro.

    Verb didn't make the cut, though in all honesty I am debating on including him now. Like at first I thought there was no way he'd be in, but given his huge influence on St. Louis battling and the fact that he's had BIG name opponents I've really been thinking about including him.

    Of most of the current guys doing it I think major arguments can be made for several (Pat Stay, Johnny Storm, Soul Khan, Real Deal, etc.) and Verb is definitely one of them.

    Word, I can understand of course cases can be made for a lot of people. A lot of battlers deserve that just due. Reading the Lux portion though just made Verb pop up in my head for a sec cause of the connectivity. Lux put Verb on somewhat. Verb created his own little scene in STL with Word War ala Lux with Lionz Den. Came to NY & immediately built a fanbase who champion him as one of the best. You got everybody taking shots at Verb now, in Grindtime & URL when just over a year ago he was on the corner battling some nigga with the image of Sho-Nuff :funny:

    Anyways, good shit bruh. Keep em' coming.
