This morining i get up, get ready, and at 6:15 i grab my Mp3 player and head out the door, Its around 6:30 when I get on the bus, every day I see the same two people, one, this guy who is a guitar player that lives on the block i always been meaning to talk to, to see if he'd be willing to jam one day, that wears a fender hat, the other, a black girl with cornrows,
Every morning not only do I have my headphones but so does this girl, Shooting out jams at incredible volume, you know stuff like the latest 50 Cent or that white guy, well today she didnt have them, so i sit behind her, Black Label Society blastin away, everything was cool and all of a sudden, she turns around and starts getting loud with me "why you niggers be listenin' to that heavy metal EVERY DAY" refering to the dude and I, i could barely hear the rest due to the fact that it was loud, so i completely ignore her, so does he, 2 minutes later she turns around, yells, "lower your shit" she thought i had turned it off, but it was a break in between songs, then what happened next made the man freak out, the next song was "Doomsday Jesus", which has a loud startoff, she leapt out of her seat, and started to clap rhythmically with what she was saying, but i couldnt hear her cause of the song, i then lowered it, only to hear her say, "heavy metal is fo' fags, you niggers gotta get yo shit together and listen to real music, I, completely shocked of that fact that she actually stoodup, and in that classic ghetto way, played hooked on phonics, was speechless, the dude stood up, looked her right in the eyes and said " I will never lower myself to listen to a form of music that demeans an entire culture and robs it of its dignity" She turned around and sat back in her seat, talking loudly to herself as if to draw attention to the rest of the travelers, and inform them of why we were wrong, It was then that this dude stood up leaned onto her and said, "shut the fuck up" right into her face, on his way back to his seat, he looked at me and said "What are you listening to", I replied, Black Label Society, He said "black La---turn that shit up, and returned to his seat, the black girl was quiet for the rest of the ride, and got off at 34th street

One time while waiting for the ferry on the Manhattan side I saw this guy with an acoustic guitar and he was playing Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibtion"! And it was all correct too! That was freaking awesome.

Shit, I would've loved to have heard that. It was my favorite piece when I took the russian classical music class at my school.
