A Love Letter to Planet B-Boy

Let me introduce to my new favorite movie of the year. It's called Planet B-Boy. We met a couple nights ago and we're in love. Now, I know what you're saying, "What about Shotgun Stories? You told us that Shotgun Stories" was your number one." I can't deny that we had a great run together but I've met someone new. There will always be a spot in my heart for Shotgun Stories but everyone is just going to have to accept that I've made the best decision for me. If you don't believe me, let me tell you tell you a little bit about my new love.

The first thing I noticed about Planet B-Boy
was how beautiful she was.

She showed me a world I'd never seen before...
and introduced me to all her friends.

We spent the entire night talking about hip-hop.
Then last night, we did it all over again.
It reminded me of the first time I met Style Wars.
I'll never forget you, Style Wars.

So, no offense to Shotgun Stories. You're an amazing movie. I really liked watching you. It's not you, it's me...I just feel that I'm at a place in my life where I need to watch fascinating documentaries about worldwide breakdancing competitions. Do you understand what I'm saying? Who knows? Maybe I'll watch you again in a couple months. Life is crazy. Nobody knows the future. And you'll most likely be my number two of the year. You beat out a LOT of movies. That's nothing to get mad about...oh, come on, I didn't want this to happen. You're going to find someone who truly appreciates you. I'm just sorry that that couldn't have been me.

It's been nice knowing you, Shotgun Stories. Keep it real.
Stop calling my home phone.

Planet B-Boy gave me SUCH a boner. Jesus.

One of my friends is in Germany right now and was actually at Battle of the Year this year (the motherfucker). He wrote a blog post about it here, if you're interested.

Me too. Me too...

I read your friend's post...this will be my next big trip.

Oh man, where were you months ago? I thought I was the only person in America who saw this movie. I have to admit it's faded a bit (there have been so many great docs since), but I was happy to it pop up here again. I'll have to make special mention of it at year's end.

Stop reminding me that I still haven't seen Shotgun Stories...
