TheBlindBox S2 Ep22 Huck Gee
OG. Triple OG. Huck Gee.
The Blind Box gets a visit from the legend Huck Gee. We don’t use the term lightly, so if we say it we mean it. If you’re not familiar with Huck or the Toy World, this is one you need to hear. If you’re a long time fan of Huck? This one’s the one you’ve been waiting for. Ready?
Huck returns from his mission to Mars (?!) & talks about what he’s been up to lately, including all of the emails he’s been returning (as well as a big one he got recently), his watch that’s dropping in the next 24 hours, his past contributions to the toy scene and his well known “falling out” with Kid Robot. “The Blank” creation process & who he would like to see it in the hands of sometime soon (Hint: Huck has some ideas, GM offers his own, initials? SW), Huck’s current list of artists to watch & Dolly Oblongs recent contribution to the retail market. Christie’s Auction House? Marc Jacobs? Podcasting & digging in the crates and how it’s a lot like something else we do often as hip hop heads & music fans, as well as Huck Gee’s Top 5 Survival Guide to the Apocalypse (Another spoiler: If you make customs you want to hear this for a Huck Gee “Skullhead” Giveaway courtesy of the man himself). Oh yeah, forgot, we also talk about those phuckin’ Phunnies…. Enough spoiling, hit play and get to the gettin’, Apocalypse Now.
In Segment 2, The Blind Box gets a visit from Hip hop producer, MC & Toy Collector Paranorml. We talk with Paranorml about …well, toys! A lot of collector talk, some top 5 lists & more. We also take the time to talk about Kendrick Lamar’s Grammy Performance & the difference between racist and supporting your race, and what The Blind Box would be if GM wasn’t as…nevermind, Just listen. The void in podcasting, being hip hop heads while collecting vinyl toys, Kano, Wong, Doze Green, Quiccs, Ron English & ….. Slum Village & Dilla? Yup, this is what we do. This is The Blind Box.
