Lucky Dube (R.I.P.)  different collors/one people   Options Victims  Shanachie  1993    R.I.P. to reggae great and South African musician Lucky Dube who yesterday evening around 8:20PM (October 18rh) was gunned down and killed, reportedly in front of his own kids, in the Johannesburg, SA suburb of Rosettenville. Police are calling the murder part of a botched hijacking in which the artist was reportedly dropping off his son and daughter at another family member's home. Reportedly two gunmen approached Dube's car and opened fire killing the artist but not harming his children - both who apparently had already just excited the vehicle, then running to get help after witnessing the shooting from afar. Lucky Dube was one of South Africa's most successful reggae recording artists and started out his career doing traditional African Zulu music as a Mbaqanga artist in the eighties before switching up and doing reggae music fulltime. Lucky Dube, whose rich catalog includes 21 albums - both Mbaqanga and reggae including last year's reggae album "Respect" , was only 43 years old and is survived by seven children and his wife Zanele. His full name was Lucky Philip Dube (pronounced doobay) and his mother named him Lucky apparently because he was born in poor health, yet survived    1:42:14 (Pop‑up)

  3:06pm Sean Daily:

  3:07pm north guinea hills:

that's cheating? play on!
  3:09pm north guinea hills:

maybe i should have gone w/ 'worst penny thrills 'insteand ;)
  3:10pm north guinea hills:

and instead of 'insteand', i should have gone w/ 'instead'
  3:10pm Lisa Michelle:

Hey Billy Jam,
Ok Im always late, but always make it to the party! In the middle of a move at work, and they will snatch my headphones in 15 mins, play something fonky!!
  3:15pm bpab:

I feel French when I peer down the page's narrow confined space for listener input...cuz it's a comment alley view.
  3:17pm Pamela:

Muggs and Sick - nice music.
  3:18pm Andrea:

Esta chingon
  3:24pm north guinea hills:

sean, the 'hoo woo!' made me rofl.
  3:31pm north guinea hills:

billy, superb soft machine interjection before rap rhymes. i give up, i'm not getting any more work done for the rest of the day...
  3:36pm cannonball:

Doc's Retro mix is fiiiiiiiiine indeed. go billy go.
  3:44pm north guinea hills:

i could go for some aciiiiiiiiid techno/folk
  3:49pm P to the C:

  3:55pm P to the C:

Lucky Dube!!!!!!!!!!whoa....i didn't hear.....having a moment...sad .........cheers for the dedication billy....
  3:55pm Sean Padilla:

"Stop Jockin' James" is the funniest song I've heard in quite some time.
  3:57pm Pamela:

I miss Scott too... Do you miss his beer too?
Thanks for letting us know about Lucky Dube... So sad.
  3:58pm Sean Padilla:

It didn't take long for me to think of a cliche that I hate. Whenever people say "You gotta do what you gotta do," it reminds me of my woefully inarticulate dad, who says it at least once during every conversation I have with him.
  3:59pm g:

"it is what it is"
  3:59pm The Box:

Think outside THIS, yo.
  4:00pm Neil:

  4:03pm north guinea hills:

wait, i missed that (actually was working). was lucky dube that south african reggae king?
  4:05pm hank:

  4:06pm north guinea hills:

yeah i miss scott's beer (been getting tanked during lunch on microbrews in his honor). oh, we need trouble to bring back the comments, otherwise i might have to WORK!
  4:07pm john:

"Hey Now!" Hank Kingsley..
Someone beat me to it!
I hate life!
  4:07pm P to the C:

yeah NGH.....check out his album from early 80s- titled RASTAS NEVER DIE.....let's hope so eh?
  4:12pm Nick the Bard:

"You learn something new everyday"
Especially the people that say it like sixteen times in a 5 hour period when you're playing Scrabble with them...
  4:12pm bpab:

"On the ground" seeped silly in the last six years from more pointed/literal uses to free-scattered overuse all over the damn place. Whenever I hear it from radio sources/reporters, I repeat it aloud with a shout in my kitchen. Neighbors nervous.
  4:12pm north guinea hills:

Hey Now!
  4:13pm 420 here comes 420:

celebrate friday celebrate god bud
  4:20pm P to the C:

"at the risk of sounding cliche"

the tractor beam is pulling....can't break free.......
  4:21pm hank:

  4:23pm north guinea hills:

son of bloody hoser! missed the hank kingley reference (i paused the player to talk to my boss), so, i'm 6 minutes behind everyone else.

porkchopulous, i get paid tomorrow, and i need some vinyl. i'm hitting the shops in bed-stuy and crown heights, so hopefully i'll get lucky and find some lucky. i've only read about him before....
  4:29pm north guinea hills:

billy, throw me the deets for bootie nyc. sounds suite!
  4:37pm Boston, MA:

thanks for keeping the beats tight
  4:46pm north guinea hills:

gneisse, finally some lucky dube! my day is complete!
  4:49pm oOo:

that bush quote "nobody cares about their deaths more than I do" is sort of a cliche, like "nobody ______ more than me/I ..."

it's always a really uninformed thing to say and can only be deemed true by determining your position relative to every living human, in the case of GW it means every human would have to concede that their concern was of less degree than the president's own... I doubt that even he could agree that that would happen, so it's a strange thing to say because when looking at it from this logical perspective, it seems that he would be forced to disagree with himself
  4:53pm cannonball:

couldn't it be that GW's concern is _equal_ to that of the most concerned of humans?? the line is 'no one cares <more> than me' , not 'no one cares <as much or more> than me'.

obviously - still a hackneyed cliche, and a most certainly untrue statement
  4:56pm north guinea hills:

holy shit, bernhard gal! i have this record
  4:57pm chuck norris:

all truth is cliche-ed
  4:58pm oOo:

yeah good point I would edit my comment from "concern was of less degree" to "concern was of less than or equal degree", and that is admittedly more plausible
  5:01pm Sean Daily:

Look, we know what Dubya's record is. To rehash it is counterproductive. The main questions we should be worried about are 1) How do we get rid of him, 2) How do we make sure that history remembers him as a shit president and 3) How do we survive the fucker.
  5:02pm north guinea hills:

ditto, sean. i'm out. enjoy the fresh and freaky weekend everyone!
  5:08pm cannonball:

SD: for what its worth, I was debating the semantics more than anything. sort of in keeping with the 'cliche' theme. anyhoo.
  5:14pm chuck norris:

the good lord sent us the bushman to eliminate this cliche you call truth
  5:31pm Sean Daily:

Oh yes... take off the sweater... take it off... oh yeah... yeah...
  5:32pm Sean Daily:

I hear you, cannonball. Dubya's fast become one of the biggest cliches in American history.
  5:37pm P to the C:

"im not one to gossip but......."
"you didn't hear this from me but..."

"i'm just sayin'"
  5:46pm Paul Caruso:

you can't believe everything you see and hear, now can you? Now if you'll excuse me, I must be on my way.
  5:52pm A+D:

Billy Jam rulez!
  11:17am spidy:
