  Fri. 1/6/12 7:05pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

What year did Skillz start his year "Rap Up"?
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:05pm other david:

Hah - Nice! WFMU sticker on College Green :)

Must put mine somewhere in town
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:06pm DJ Eons One:

What up fellas? Just trying to make it through this last hour of work. Guru drop gave me chills.
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:07pm Billy Jam:

Occupy Dame Street!
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:08pm Ike:

Hey hey hey Billy Jam! Also working late here....
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:08pm Billy Jam:

hey ALF - (MC) Skillz has been doing those "rap ups" for a full decade now
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:09pm bob:

where's that phasing waa waa waa waa from?
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:09pm Billy Jam:

hello IKE - any overseas adventures upcoming for you?
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:11pm Billy Jam:

at Bob - not sure - Anyone?
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:11pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Yeah I didn't start hearing them until roughly 07'. I hope he keeps them up for another 10 years. I really like them.
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:13pm Ike:

I wish! Not too likely. Would love to go someday to Ireland, Scotland, Germany, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, the list goes on. How about you?
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:15pm Billy Jam:

That sounds good Ike - and really good as a cycling trip. Me I was just in Ireland - followed by Cali - but want to go back up to Canada or the Mid West or both in next few months - after the Marathon want to do a bunch of remotes round the US - that's my wish at least
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:19pm Ben Drinken:

Wow the first mention about the marathon I have heard yet. The year is already underway at full speed.
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:21pm Billy Jam:

@Ben Drinken - hah hah - good point...and we are not even done with the first week of the new year - It is because I have been looking at my calander fo the full year ahead and planning shit
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:26pm Ben Drinken:

I always admired that about you. You plan and do so much and give it back to us listeners.
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:27pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The remote broadcasts are pretty cool. Do you pay for your own expenses for them?
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:32pm Billy Jam:

yeah I pay my own way and then usually have somewhere to crash lined up - like the Vince Mackmahon DJ giuys over in Galway or the folks over in GErmany or the UK etc. punk rock style :)
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:35pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Cool. When I was single, I'd usually visit places where I could stay with friends or relatives.
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:36pm Ben Drinken:

Does having you off the 3 hour slot on WFMU free you up to do even more? I do miss the old Friday slot. Such great stuff. And when you went to California in support of the free form station in turmoil.
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:37pm Billy Jam:

yeah - all you need is toothbrush, bit of cash, passport, good friends + a TieLine and laptop if you want to broadcast live remotely - Am hoping to go to Budapest Hungary - have it mostly worked out but need to finalize dates
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:39pm Ben Drinken:

What about health care. I know you are a few years older than me. Maybe by ten. But I would worry about that as I travel around. How do you handle that?
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:42pm Billy Jam:

I pray to Buddha, drink lots of water, eat fruit, and smoke medical mariajuana
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:45pm Ben Drinken:

can't think of a better plan. these are four things I will add to my new year list of need to do.
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:46pm Guessing:

on other words, don't get sick!
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:47pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Billy, you forgot to mention along with "pray to Buddha, drink lots of water..." make DnZ mom's jokes
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:48pm Ben praying to Buddha and Drinken water and smoki:

I feel better already. What a great crack at the whip for a new life and new year.
  Fri. 1/6/12 7:50pm Billy Jam:

Catching up via the archives, as usual, at work. Curious about that 3rd track, but there's no way I'm googling that title from work... Looking forward to PTNOTR world tour 2012 in Budapest and elsewhere!
