love GSH and Sarah Jones
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Ken From Hyde Park:

"The nubs"? I think that refers to some hair removal product. Like if you use a razor, you'll have nubs of stubble, but not if you use the other product.

RIP Lord Bizr 68, founder of the international LORDS graffiti crew.

I remember video footage of a Sarah Jones performance in South Africa being my first introduction to her work. Loved the GSH/SJ double punch!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Caryn:

And go Niners, indeed, BJ!
Avatar 7:15pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

It is hard for some black men to shave because they get painful bumps as the hair grows back on their face. It has to do with the hairs being curly and they grow and curl underneath the skin before popping out eventually. My beard hair is curly too and this happens to me as a white boy. But not as bad as black men. I remember this was a problem for a lot of black guys when I was in the army.

my God billy, you are bringing the house down. Red is for the blood in my arm, black is for the gun in my palm, and the green is for the trom that grows natural, like locks on Africans!

Dead Prez - Let's Get Free. Get it, Bump It, Feel It.

Avatar 7:24pm Billy Jam:

yo Bad Ronald - good to have you here - and yep one hour is Too $hort (also the next artist I am about to play :) - As I got the music ready for this show last night - I had 3 and a half hours at first - and then narrowed it down to this one hour's worth - of which I am going back in time mostly to the Afro Centric era of hip-hop to play for today - but could easily do another two shows of this
Avatar 7:25pm TheRapperWithNoName:

who do we gotta grease to get the 3 hr slot back? I got 5 on it
  7:26pm Tall Paul:

Hi Bill, love this song. How y'all doing? What time is it Superbowl weekend.
Avatar 7:26pm Billy Jam:

Avatar 7:29pm Billy Jam:
