Phillip Mlynar

Phillip likes to pretend that he's the world's foremost expert on rappers' cats, a claim that admittedly comes with little-to-no competition. He considers his expose on Rags Lauren, a cat who lives in a recording studio and was the unwitting victim of a fake Twitter account, to be a ground-breaking classic of the form. He is also convinced his idea for cat sushi is a million-dollar winner. 

Full Name: Phillip Mlynar

Location: The feral cat-strewn blocks of Bushwick, Brooklyn.

Where You Can Find Me on the Internet: Tweets and Tumbls plus Instagramming

What I Do for a Living: Write about rappers.

What I Do for Fun: Collect Le Creuset cookware (in red). I'm speculating that cast iron will emerge as the new gold when it comes to savvy future investments.

The Furry Members of My Household Are: Mimosa aka Mims aka Chicken Mims, the latter because of the time she faced up against a rooster back in her shelter days.

My Favorite Things to Write About Are: Arcane rap songs from long-forgotten periods of time. Also, rappers who like sandwiches.

My Pet Peeves Are: Food Bazaar supermarkets, people who try and convince you that Arrested Development is funny, and apartment building neighbors who seem intent on turning the shared roof terrace into a shanty town by adding so much tacky garden furniture and leaving trash out. But I'll have the last laugh when I start keeping free-roaming chickens out there.

My Guilty Pleasures Are: I sometimes enjoy canned macaroni and cheese.

How I Deal with Cat/Dog Hair: A well-stocked supply of Ikea lint rollers.

What I Want to Be When I Grow Up: Eric Cantona.
