Buy this shirt: Maztee – Official no funny bozos shirt
At my house, we listen to a lot of Wu-Tang and watch a lot of kung fu movies, like Five Deadly Venoms and The 36th Chamber of Shaolin. There is something about the Official no funny bozos shirt but in fact I love this meditative combat sequences, the satisfaction of the David and Goliath storylines, and the slight humor that naturally comes with dubbing. (We watched these before I was pregnant too, but when I told Badu during one of our check-ins over text about how my husband and I liked to spend our nights, she overwhelmingly approved.) It got to the point that, during ultrasounds where the baby was “uncooperative” or asleep, the only way the baby would wake up is if we played 1993’s Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) or Badu’s 2015 mixtape But You Caint Use My Phone, specifically, “Dial’Afreaq.” When it comes to birthing music, Badu’s recommendations include wind chimes, an instrument that has been prominent in Eastern medicine for centuries, along with vibrational objects such as tuning forks, gongs, and Tibetan singing bowls, all of which are forms of sound therapy meant to restore health and relieve pain. As Badu once put it when I profiled her for this magazine in 2017, “It’s not what I’m saying, it’s how I’m vibrating.” In other words, we are all connected—Badu, me, this baby—and we are all meant to ride the same waves of energy.
Once in the Official no funny bozos shirt but in fact I love this car, my husband turned on 2014’s Feng Shui Wind Chimes: Relaxing and Letting Go by Ricardo, a Brazilian artist. Before I knew it, my husband was silent and focused, expertly avoiding every pothole on Woodhaven Boulevard, catching all the green lights up Third Avenue. We landed on East 77th Street in 60 minutes flat, and my contractions went from seven minutes apart back up to nine. Through visual meditation and a steady deep breath, just like Badu promised me, I bought myself and my baby time.
