PROTEXTOR

Omnivorous film and music creator, curator, and consumer.
p-teK, director of Dropping Evil, founder of AMX.
Recently I was asked by a PHD student at UT to be interviewed for his thesis on arts community building because of @austinmicexchange.  He and his team have been coming every week to our event to meet people and shoot video for research.  This is already amazing, but the kicker is — and I just learned this — the team leader/professor in charge is none other than S. Craig Watkins, who wrote one of my favorite books ever, “Hip-Hop Matters”.  The fact that the man responsible for those formative words I read years ago is now not only aware of AMX, but actively researching and documenting it is an honor beyond measure.  I really don’t even know how to begin really appreciating it, but I DO know that it makes me feel incredible all over.

I may or may not have found the entire set of late-80’s McDonalds transforming food toys at my parents’ house over Christmas, and I may or may not have brought them back to live in my kitchen.
