Odin sacrificed an eye, trading eyesight for insight, and disguised as Vegtam the Wanderer, traveled the world in quest of the wisdom of the ages. I have the eye sacrifice part covered. I'll get back to you when that wisdom thing kicks in.

I think sentimental schmaltz is from 40 years ago, maing. If you want the cracks in the worldly facade from 20 years ago, well then...

Awwww yeah.

The "schmaltz" he connected is from 150 years ago. 40 years, 150 years, I still like it. Maybe Kris Kross's songs will be here in 150 years.

We can only hope folks will still feel a connection with the honest Soul Kriss Kross had the courage to bare.
