[Robin Williams courtesy Wikimedia Commons]Editorial courtesy of Steve 'Flash' Juon:

That was a pretty pivotal year for me - my first as a teenager - and at a time in my life where I had more say over my entertainment dollar (and more disposable income thanks to a summer job) than ever before. It was also what one might call the golden years of the VHS tape, a time at which the VCR had become affordable to the masses and every town had a store where you could rent tapes.

After the release of After School Special, a mixtape based on 90s television shows, he gained a fan base through internet buzz while still living on his friend's couch. Soon after, he released his follow-up The Book Of Adam which was received so well, he quit his day job the day after the listening party.
