Absolutely loving the new series HIP HOP EVOLUTION. On NETFLIX in the U.S. I grew up in NYC in the 70's and 80's. My school bus driver's son was BIG BANK HANK from THE SUGARHILL GANG. Since the moment he gave me a 12-nch single of "Rapper's Delight" I've been hooked on Hip Hop. The series traces the origins and growth of the art form. Featuring DJ KOOL HERC, AFRIKA BAMBAATAA, GRANDMASTER FLASH, DJ HOLLYWOOD, RUSSELL SIMMONS, COKE LA ROCK, MELLE MEL, RUN-DMC, MARLEY MARL, GRANDMASTER CAZ, ERIC B. & RAKIM, PUBLIC ENEMY, ICE-T, N.W.A, DR. DRE and more. Was smiling ear to ear as Grandmaster Flash told stories about how he developed his "science": cutting, mixing, and scratching. Watch the trailer. Congrats to SHAD K for navigating it all well for us... Hey, conspiracy freaks! Where do mainstream media conspirators meet to plot? I never get invited. Because of course, they all work together like the Illuminati... This game has been played everywhere else in the world to terrible results. Now it's being played here and it may be the worst of its kind... Key aim of business leaders should be to disrupt their own businesses. If they don't someone will. Any other thought it wishful thinking... Most morning shows are representations of the decline of our culture. I suffered in the doctor's waiting room listening to a 5-minute segment on the controversy surrounding ROB KARDASHIAN's engagement to BLAC CHYNA. This is how I feel... I want an evolution, not a revolution... Time to watch SEVEN DAY IN MAY again.... The stupid can't take responsibility for being stupid... MAX ZORIN is alive and well and in the Bay Area... Leadership vs. Management... More interested and scared about politics than ever before. Really enjoyed my friend SHANE SMITH's new VICE special report A HOUSE DIVIDED on HBO. Explores the toxic political environment. "Nobody's listening. Nobody's learning" said Republican pollster and strategist FRANK LUNTZ. And listening to a lot of KEEPIN' IT 1600 from JON FAVREAU, DAN PFEIFFER, JON LOVETT, and TOMMY VIETOR... Happy Birthday to NANCY DUBUC, ROY BAHAT, PETER STERN, JENNIFER GERSHON, PETER EZERSKY, and LIZZIE MELZER. Belated to JONATHAN WALD, TYLER GOLDMAN, SARAH RICARD, and AMEE FORSTER MOLA.
