Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/31/12 7:18pm billy jam:

hey Tall Paul - got your message bout Irish special and YES will make u cd of it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/31/12 7:19pm billy jam:

hey Other David - how's things in Eire?
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:23pm other david:

Oh the usual crap on the home front Billy, religion still butting in - and the reactionary right wing stomping down in times of economic turmoil.

Same old same old, victimise the weak, that's Ireland!

Would love to hear your story sometime, why you left, how you discovered rap & hip hop, I demand a special on that :)
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:23pm other david:

Also big thanks for the premium cd - it's class!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/31/12 7:25pm billy jam:

  Fri. 8/31/12 7:32pm Luke Sick:

Yo I made it, what I miss so far?
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:33pm Brother Billy!:

One more shout out from Lawn Guyland! Wearing out my hips from the shimmying. Good work Brother! Time shifting audio show just started…
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/31/12 7:33pm Billy Jam:

all U missed Luke was DNZ's moms dancing 4 dollars + the new DOOM + saying hello to your fellow Bay folkers here on the comments -
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:33pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

@Luke You missed some slammin music thus far. BUT......you can always listen back in the archives
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:34pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

@Billy LOL!
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:34pm Brother Billy!:

Hope the chiggers ain't eating you the way they getting me!
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:34pm Tall Paul:

Bill your killing it, other thing that is happening this weekend is: there about 35,000 Americans here for the game between Notra Dame and Navy. And Dublin are playing in the semi final for Sam on Sunday
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/31/12 7:35pm Jim Jelly:

Cops ain't shit to me - and neither is Romney
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:35pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Go Navy!
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:37pm Luke Sick:

lol bay folkers are the maniest! yeah I'll go back and peep that tone tank all the modern shark stuff I've heard billy play is nice
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:37pm other david:

@Tall Paul: the US Navy wanted to bring the Enterprise aircraft carrier, but the government dont want a nuclear powered vessel docked off Dublin!

Sellafield & importing nuclear energy from the UK is cool though - Ireland is and always will be a madhouse
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:40pm Brother Billy!:

Orange moon coming up.
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:41pm chris:

Fresno is a shitty place to grow up. Glad bru'man was beautifying!
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:42pm Tall Paul:

Another thing which is happening this weekend is the Electric Picnic The Roots and Roots Manuva are appearing.
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:43pm Tall Paul:

Yahhhaaaaaaaaay Del what a super tune
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:44pm Dawgisht:

@Alf & Tall Paul: Hey Hip Hop Slam Fam! =D

@other david: Thanks! I always have fun making those premium covers.

@Luke Sick: Saw you open for Turquoise Jeep @ The Independent last Monday... felt like I went back to 1987! (in a good way!) Coolshit!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/31/12 7:45pm Billy Jam:

thanks to Tall Paul for allowing me to raid his CD collection to digitize stuff I dont have or only have on vinyl like this one - that sampled the Tom Tom Club in 1981
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:46pm Tall Paul:

Man I love the old skool this was one of the greatest labels from back in the day, Profile records
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:47pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

@Dawgisht How about that FB status I just posted Geoff? <smirk>
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:48pm Luke Sick:

@Dawgisht hell yeah man, that crowd was hyper!! Rime Force Most Illin' is gonna keep bringin it super duty tuff, stay tuned
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:48pm other david:

Old skool was just great fun, awesome talent but no egos
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:49pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

@other david That is true.
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:50pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Man! I got Serengeti's album in my shopping cart ready for purchase on UndergroundHipHop.com. Good stuff!
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:52pm Brother Billy!:

Moon is lovely, breeze is good, dinner tk, fire is lit. Billy provides the rest.
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:52pm other david:

I guess there were egos but nothing crazy - they'd rip on each other but it was always through the music, none of the crap that came later

What's interesting is if you look back at Calypso from the 30's, there was rivalry there too, you'd get Wilmoth Houdini dissing the Lord Executor, but it was all on stage - if you couldnt make it fun, you were crap
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:53pm other david:

God damnit billy, we need more than an hour!

Awesome show, as ever
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:54pm Dawgisht:

@Luke: That shit was insane at the show... some chick right next to us started socking some dude in the face when he tried to push up to the front. Violence at a Turquoise Jeep show?! Huh?! lol

@Alf: Yeah man, good status thing and fully agree! Had an idea for a political sticker:

(... because if America’s getting fucked anyway, she fucks the best!)"
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:54pm Luke Sick:

man I'm glad this work week is over, but I wish the needle could stay on the record forever (especially this PHD record- one of my personal faves), tho I guess in spirit it does, ALoha, yall another great one Billy!
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:55pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

@ Geoff LMAO! True!
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:56pm spidermank:

cheers for the mood bump Billy .
@other david you are on it tonite , cool words , nice one
  Fri. 8/31/12 7:56pm Tall Paul:

  Fri. 8/31/12 7:59pm other david:
