Re: “Talking to The Roots' Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson: The LP version

ryanspose, a-rod, blaine, dadam -- thanks to all of y'all for your comments. i had fun writing this. and, yes, much more space in print should be afforded to those artists who are actually 'about something'. props to the indy (and grayson currin, specifically, the music editor) for allowing me to post up the stuff that didn't fit in the print version. its unfortunate that, when we can't hear from the artists, themselves, stereotypes can color our perceptions. and on the flip, its also sad that so many of the artists and entertainers who are afforded the opportunity to speak don't use the opportunity to say anything of substance. the following link (if it will post) is from an article i did during the last election cycle, featuring Phonte' from Little Brother, DJ Chela and Spectac. similar vibe.

Re: “North Carolina's ridiculous liquor laws

i'm laughing at the previous post (re: the 3 day waiting period for club membership so folks can drink). i bet its a lot easier to get a gun.
