Stuff I'm thinking on today...

I'll admit, it's a little tough to fit into carry on baggage... but if you put it in first and then pack around it, no problem. Bottom line is it will impress the hell out of hotel maids and airport security (when you whip it out at any available airport power outlet).

Mark Twain (Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer) left behind 5,000 unedited pages of memoirs when he died in 1910 and one of his parting wishes was that they not be published for 100 years. That time has come.

Whether you like it or not, there is no denying that a lot of time and variety was sandwiched into Erik B & Rakim's 'Paid in Full' single/remix (1988), a masterpiece of sampling. In college, it was a staple of our group of friends... almost required listening whenever visiting the Hansbergers in Los Alamitos Dorm. It still make appearances on my playlists. Found a 'making of' interview..

Rick B and I drove out to a local airport in Calaveras County (CA) last week to check out a thousand-acre spread that's on the market... and what better way to check out a thousand acre spread, in hill country, than in a plane. We flew around in this little Cherokee for an hour or so, getting a great view of the area, the local communities, lakes & the nearby mountains.
