Mr. B – Dazzling the masses in concert!
I tend to flutter about with my news sources from various sides of the spectrum, so when I popped into the Wall Street Journal for a “entertaining” dose of economic theory, I was quite surprised to read about the emergence of “Chap-Hop”, through a comparative article between the “rap” East and West coasts, as applied to the Steampunk musical genre… and to the good-nature rivalry between the much beloved gentlemen of Chap-Hop – Mr. B and Professor Elemental!
Professor Elemental in WSJ stipple –
quite an honor to be so portrayed!
It was quite refreshing to read about as aspect of Steampunk which was not of a “smarmy” attitude (as opposed to numerous other sources of media snootiness). The author of the piece provided a good journalistic review of the development of “Chap-Hop”, and an positive and entertaining view of the genre – most certainly a welcome development. Enough said – do take a moment to read the article, located at : http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703716904576133674200088328.html Do enjoy!
