Raw, adjective: 5. crude in quality or character; not tempered or refined by art or taste

Heading home today after an audition across town - trying to get back in the saddle after a too-long grad school-imposed performing hiatus - I crossed Market St. toward the Powell cable car turnaround and ran smack into a bearded, middle-aged dad type sporting a quiet blue-colored t-shirt.

It read: "Go to hell, I'm reading."

I nearly hugged the guy.

(Picasso, "Woman Reading," 1932)
