Nice start off with Garry Shandling, such a bummer and kinda interesting how many people he influenced.

Great start! PUMPED!

hey Cliff
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/25/16 7:12pm tomasz.:

the way the "Everything Is Fair" beat transitions from the sample into the minor-key verse is still so clever
Avatar Fri. 3/25/16 7:13pm Billy Jam:

@tomasz I concur

Nice tibute to Phife, @Billy Jam

is scenario earlier or later -the style is so different from the others

And Shandling too, what's up with that?

I'm blasting this show in my house. Great tribute.
Avatar Fri. 3/25/16 7:19pm Slick Goldtooth:

I'll be honest, Tribe was one of the groups I was a little late to the party on to getting into/ one of the NYC groups I knew the least about for the longest of times. Nonetheless, enhanced my palette for the better.

Also I fucking love the sampled Baby Huey Change is Gonna Come cover.
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 3/25/16 7:19pm geezerette:

Nice "Walk on th Wild Side" riff. Love that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/25/16 7:21pm tomasz.:

on UK radio they only ever played the Boiler Room rmx of "Can I Kick It" (Fatboy Slim iirc) so it was really disorienting when i heard the original

God told me to listen to Billy Jam, Amen!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/25/16 7:27pm tomasz.:

honestly i don't listen to that much of it... a lot of people speak highly of 6 Music, which is freeform-ish but in practice seems to be mostly indie rock. late-night Radio 1 used to be amazing, perhaps still is sometimes. "Mixing It" on Radio 3 is a great out-there little show, and a bunch of other R3 can be good too depending on your tolerance for heavy classical.

My ex-boyfriend taught me how to overthink. So, I would be a candidate for Overthinkers Anonymous

@Marc15 - I am a candidate too…but I am self-taught - currently trying to un-teach myself the bad habit

if anyone's still following the GTA Deer Cam, the deer is currently having fist-fights with boardwalk thugs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 3/25/16 7:33pm Cliff:

I like how the Deer Cam is the most popular twitch stream for GTA :D
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 3/25/16 7:36pm Toots:

I'm so happy to see so many old playlist friends still here. Needed to take a break from playlist participation after DJ Keili left. So much radiooooooo! But I never stopped listening to my favorite DJs on my favorite station! xoxo
Avatar Fri. 3/25/16 7:37pm Slick Goldtooth:

@cliff+ tomasz, Just looked it up, that's totally awesome. Being funemployed for a month and playing GTA V was a dangerous yet satisfying mix. Pretty much could get lost in that game for eternity, always finding something new and interesting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 3/25/16 7:37pm Cliff:

Awww, I miss Keili too
Avatar Fri. 3/25/16 7:38pm Billy Jam:

her mom has….and is on here

she's in Miami, i believe studying. she seems to be having a nice time.

Yeah, me, her mother! She's grrrreat! About to leave for Temple University, Tokyo

Hi Keili's mom, I loved her show when she was on WFMU!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/25/16 7:42pm tomasz.:

ha! hey there Toots, did not know it was you
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 3/25/16 7:42pm Toots:

Tomasz!!! It's me! DJ Mama! She's really great. ALSO, just started talking about a new project she's been planning. So she could be back sooner than we know if Ken's up for it!

@tomasz I never heard of the GTA twitch thing before - and now I am mesmerized watching this deer run in place against a boarded up doorway in a mine shaft...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 3/25/16 7:43pm Cliff:

That would be great :)

so many excellent Tribe Called Quest tracks , great tribute Billy, archived till the end of time, respect

"Let me tell you bout my only vice; It has to do with lots o loving and it ain't nothin nice..." That's brilliant.

It's really nice to just be a fan though. REALLY nice.

Glad to hear about Keilli too, I miss her on Saturdays, she was mentioned on another comment stream recently during the marathon and it got me thinking back ho much I loved her enthusiasm and joy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/25/16 7:45pm tomasz.:

@Dave i've had it on literally all day. don't worry, the deer is both invincible and regularly teleports across the map
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 3/25/16 7:45pm Dave in Vermont:

which happened just as i read your post!
  Fri. 3/25/16 7:46pm Sam:

Great fucking show Billy, this is relaxing and trippy as all hell.

@BillyJam, Thank You. The bad habit has made my depression worsen and has hindered me from entering a new relationship. I wish I knew how to break it

Seriously Marc15. SeanG is right. You can even get mindfulness meditation links on youtube. A few minutes a day and you're golden after a little time.
@Tomasz I don't get the ddeer thing. I guess I'm old...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 3/25/16 7:56pm Cliff:

Yep, with meditation what's more important is that you do it consistently at the same time every day, than how long you sit for.
