playing mostly all brand new hip-hop today - so much good stuff coming out - but most of it with links to hip-hop's rich past/legacy - including the next one am about to play - a short but inspired new cover of a classic Wu-Tang track by Count Bass D

Bobby you are correct! - @Chris - that's cool - nice drive -Hey is there a train that runs the entire coastline from SF up to BC or does it go inland?
  Fri. 6/23/17 7:25pm Willie in Jersey City:

diggin all this real hiphop ......nice
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/23/17 7:28pm chris:

inland for most of that journey north. the coast starlight goes from LA to Seattle, though. most of the coastal views are out of LA and through Half Moon Bay... that would be nice.
Avatar Fri. 6/23/17 7:30pm Billy Jam:

@ chris - good to know. Speaking of which - a good thing to know about is Marcel M's show on Weds 3-6am on WFMU

Marcel M is currently taking your quiz on Twin Peaks - hit him up with any question on the new series in a new comments board edition we are calling "Stump Marcel M on Twin Peaks"

Avatar Fri. 6/23/17 7:42pm Billy Jam:

yeah Marcel M, where is that missing page?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/23/17 7:46pm northguineahills:

Have we seen the white lodge in new series? Or, has it been so long I can't tell the difference b/tn the black and white lodge?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/23/17 7:47pm Marcel M:

If I revealed anything crucial like that, David would kill me ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/23/17 7:48pm Smilty69:

Whatever happened to Annie, Marcel M? Did she leave Twin Peaks to follow a kickass rapper?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/23/17 7:48pm TheRapperWithNoName:

taking me higher, that's for damn sure. cheers, Billy Jam, Marcel M, all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/23/17 7:54pm Marcel M:

@DJ Chex: I do think the body is major brigs and I'm realllly eager to see exactly HOW that can be. Also did you guys catch the dude walking down the hallway in the scene where the military lady comes to check the body? Some people are saying it may be the guy who was in the cell next to the principal of the school from the first few episodes, who vanished from the cell wearing the weird black mud stuff who looked like Jesus.

I really have no idea about the 4th page tho... but damn I can't wait till Sunday night!

Well, David Lynch is the master of throwing red herrings that later end up not being red herrings. I'm curious as well.
