some food for the brain...
Now Playing: polyrhythm addicts - it's my life (feat. phonte of little brother)
Topic: articles

it's hump day, and it's time to get your read on. let Bakari Kitwana's op-ed from New York Newsday serve as a final note regarding the Imus controversy - very well said and really breaks things down for those who want to know what's going on behind the scenes. and while you're in the zone, follow that up with Tracy Sharpley-Whiting's perspective on the sexual politics of hip-hop. i'm seriously considering a sit down with this woman's new book.

and then there's this. found it while hanging out on twitter courtesy of Jersey Todd. i hope it's real. it's terrible that i have to be skeptical of something like this...

impose magazine issue no. 27
Now Playing: showgirls episode no. 5 (showgirls.podshow.com)
Topic: articles

i meant to post this weeks ago, but if you can't find the latest issue of impose magazine near you, you can download it from their website as a PDF file. issue #27 can be found here.

i wrote an article on Black Milk, Detroit-based hip-hop producer that everyone seems to be talking about right now. got some reviews in there, too: albums for Funkstorung, Miho Hitori, and RJD2, so go check that...

Imus be a flippin' idiot (but we knew that already...)
Now Playing: showgirls episode #5 (showgirls.podshow.com)
Topic: articles

Imus in the morning, Imus in the evening, Imus at suppertime...it's all the rage. LITERALLY.

and so, in a sea of online articles, here are two that washed up on my shores. first off, sister Stephane Dunn gets down on some righteous indignation type stuff and reps for double x chromosomes with kinky domes out there. and then there's Kevin Powell to the rescue, who sums up sex, race, and Imus so beautifully in this article that it saves the rest of us the need to go off about it. damnit, Kevin, you done did it again...

Topic: articles

apparently such a twisting of a mass media slogan doesn't just apply to Fox News: check out what happened to an American Studies professor on CNN via this article. seriously jacked up situation...

the last soul brother: james brown (1933-2006)
Now Playing: kindred spirits radio show on giantstep.net
Topic: articles

i was wondering when my man Dr. Mark Anthony Neal would get around to writing something about the Godfather of Soul. and of course, he knocked it outta the park, as always. more on-point than a seasoned ballet dancer. read the article here.

o.p.b. (other people's best of lists) and...the year in racism.
Now Playing: adam curry's daily source code (www.curry.com)
Topic: articles

perhaps by the middle of 2007, i'll actually have my own best of 2006 list done. as for now, here are several others worth reading by Mark Anthony Neal, the always opinionated staff of Other Music (it's an exhaustive list, seems to get larger every year, but always worth reading), and the irreverent and wacky station members of WFMU.

and as an added bonus, a very funny article from comedian Baratunde looking back on the year in racism.

breathing while black...
Topic: articles

when Amadou Diallo was shot to death by the NYPD, black life was worth 41 shots. with the recent shooting death of Sean Bell by the same firing squad, black life has apparently increased by 10 shots.

if this keeps up, we'll be up to 100 shots by 2012. should i be morbidly flattered by this?
