    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Scary, especially since they're reporting he didn't speak English very well. I hope he's safe.

    I don't know if his radio interview was in French or English, but he was able to get there and apparently stayed around all day Monday. He must be able to communicate adequately. I wonder if he was thinking he was going to get a job or be asked to join a group here. His pictures appear moody and brooding, but maybe that's the mage he is going for.
    Could he be missing on purpose, not wanting to return to France? I assume there are a lot more music connections to be made in NYC than a village or smaller town in France.

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.

    French rapper Arthur Astie missing in New York

    Popular young French rapper Arthur Astie has gone missing after getting lost in the Bronx, May 4th.

    Astie, who also performs under the name Ubu Omikro, was staying in Harlem and was supposed to get off at the 125th Street and Lennox Avenue stop, but took the train too far. Astie was last heard from in the Bronx, where he says he was going back underground to get on the correct train.
    The 22-year-old hasn't been seen since. The French embassy is aware.

    Arthur has been found safe in a Bronx hospital.

    I have only just seen that his last call was to his mother and he didn't speak, but she could hear subway noises and the sound of Arthur having a 'strange altercation'.

    What good news. I just hope he is OK. It's not good to look 'lost' in the Bronx at night.

    I think you're right. His dad says he was attacked. In good health though and he thanks everyone for their help.

    That is great news. So sad though that a young man comes to my state, to our country, and gets attacked. I am embarrassed. I pray that he has a speedy recovery.

    Mmmm. Maybe put a hold on any embarrassment. I get the feeling there's maybe a backstory we're missing here.

    There was concern that the 22-year-old may have been attacked. In a voicemail left on his mother’s phone there was the sound of what could have been an argument, Stern reported.

    But police said on Saturday it appears Astie was not the victim of a crime.
