Best of Bold As Love: 2008 Edition

Jack lipstick

2008 was a big year for this blog.  I became even more excited about exploring the cultural shift that’s bringing Black rock and all of its manifestations to the fore.  This resulted in approximately 200 posts over the course of the year.  From these posts, I’ve pulled what I consider to be the best of the year.  Enjoy!

FINALLY

  • Sounds.  Vibrations from our hardcorps.
  • Photos.  My documentation of some of the shows I attended.  In a few cases, I got some decent shots.
  • Video.  I started doing video interviews of fly folks (are there any other kind?) in the community.  Check ‘em here.
