    A Date With Mayonnaise

    This Friday (4/28) I will be hosting a Bike Day on the loading dock of the 800 N. Michigan Ave building. The loading dock is right across the street from Pippins (that stinkhole of a bar). Startiing at 1 PM until 3:30PM you can stop by for a free bicycle tune up and a bit of chain lube. Nothing fancy, just in and out. Although it's free, I'll have a mayo jar for any donation you care to offer to help support Katrina victims.

    Just put together the playlist for this Friday’s event. The theme will be mid to late 80’s R&B/Dance music. This was the last great era of R&B before the Hip Hop culture took over and destroyed any semblance of real music. With a few exceptions, I hate Hip Hop and I don’t care who knows it. Give me a song written and sung by an artist with a beginning, a middle, and an end instead of stolen samples from past masters and histrionic phrasing and gangster posturing.

    So when you stop by you’ll be hearing lots of The SOS Band, Cameo, Midnight Star, Prince, The Whispers, Peoples & Yarbrough, Imagination, The Gap Band, Atlantic Starr, Dazz Band, New Edition/Bobby Brown, Teena Marie, Shannon, Klymaxx, Vanity 6, Mary Jane Girls.

    So come by and get your groove on.

    Wet My Whistle.

    I'm testing positive for the funk. I'd glady pee in anyone's cup.

    You had me until your rant about hip hop being nothing more than "stolen samples from past masters and histrionic phrasing and gangster posturing". And you prefer Bobby Brown? Hip hop changed America for the better, and declaring your loathing for a huge and varied genre is like musical bigotry.

    Exactly how did hip-hop change America for the better? I would love to see your imperial evidence of that fact.

    Imperial evidence? Empirical. And no, there haven't been any controlled experiments demonstrating my contention.

    Rap and Hip Hop gave voice to a generation of African Americans who continue to be marginalized in America. It told America what was happening in the inner cities and brought questions of race, violence, and oppression into the mainstream debate. Look at Public Enemy and N.W.A. for examples. Not only that, it's proved to be a durable and flexible art form that's given rise to a ton of innovative and progressive artists.

    I don't have to defend hip hop as an art form. It's obvious to anyone who's been paying attention that it's worthwhile, creative, varied, and important.

    If, with a few exceptions, hating Hip Hop makes me a musical bigot, then I am proudly a Musical Bigot.

    Excuse my typo, there have been studies done, please refer to the library. I'm not argueing that hip hop isn't a worthwhile art form but stating that hip hop and the blind commercialism that its now preaches (with exceptions ie: dead prez) are, if anything, a hinderance to the advance of the american ideal.

    Still, dollar days in new orleans, and good luck on the fundraiser I hope it kicks arse

    And like all music, it got commercialized and glamourized whatever aspects of culture execs thought would make the most money (in this case greed, misogyny, and violence).I wish more good indy artists got air, instead of these soulless buffoons we get stuck with. I better keep wishin cause it isn't going to happen.

    But I don't think you can discount an entire musical genre simply because the majority of it's mainstream branch may be soulless. I don't even like hip hop, really, but I can plainly see the impact and importance of its roots and many of its more underground artists, the latter of which I know very little about.

    I totally agree. There is no reason to say, "I hate hip hop/country/rock/gospel", cause how can you hate a form of expression? Maybe you don't like the entire spectrum of pop artists within a genre, but I bet everyone would like one or two artists from any genre. They just have little chance of getting exposed to the right artist.

    I didn't say Chingy is a progressive truth-teller. I said the genre has done good things for America. Speaking out about what's wrong with this country IS advancing the 'American ideal'.

    And, finally, you can be damn sure that hip hop has done more good for America than Bobby Brown and the Gap Band ever did.

    I love Hip Hop, but you better have some Freddy Jackson ready
    to go when it's time for the "quiet storm".

    to all the hip-hop haters, just because you don't understand something doesn't mean it's bad. it just makes you look like fools. turn off the radio and mtv and listen to the real thing.
