Today’s “Daily Bizcard” design, “The Utter Terror”, goes to my favorite rapper, Ice T.
I’ve been listening to Ice T for two decades. “Body Count” is one of my favorite rock albums.
I’ve never been much into rap per se (I’m more of a Lester Young fan), but I always liked and admired Ice T’s approach- raw, honest, truthful, uncompromising, interesting, thoughtful, intense, original… with a playful sense of humor, buried deep in the apple like a razor.
i.e. The man is no phony. The man is an artist. All art springs from that “utter terror”, whether we care to admit it or not, so I’m thinking he might like this cartoon.
Besides that, it seems we’re both Iceberg Slim fans. Rock on.

[Ice T, please send me an e-mail at [email protected] with your shipping address and the details you want on the back of the bizcard, and I’ll send a free box of 100 to you. Thanks!]
Lester Young…the president. Ice T a bad ass. Both were innovators, both looked at that terror and made sure it didn’t get the best of them.
utter terror??? You mean the space I’m in right now is completely OK? Holy f**k, why is terror necessary?
Blah, blah, blah, great book, blah, blah, blah, cool blog, blah, blah, blah, an effing futurist rock star — loving Ice T and Iceburg Slim has just elevated you to demi-god in my book. Kudos. You, Oprah and Beyonce’s abs enjoy that rarefied space. 😀
