The Brilliance!


We’re really internet and we’re really back. A website about things Benjamin , Chuck , Virgil , and various friends & guests think are interesting. Little-to-no specific focus, a bit odd, speling errors, and incredibly culturally relevant.

Jamel Shabazz & Trifling Mental!

A Time Before Crack. It’s a ‘happy’ book with an honestly chilling title. Jamel Shabazz is legendary for capturing the essence of urban living with his camera. Famous for his book ‘Back In The Days.’ Trifling Mental caught up with Jamel for a smart interview on his thoughts around the book, his vision, poverty in the inner-city, viewing his images as fashion photography, and more. Trifling Mental does their thing…very thorough. Check the link below for the interview. Quality stuff. And go get the book ‘Back In The Days.’
