We're all being ushered home early in Pitchland so none of us will get lost in the land of the ice and snow, so here's a few quick notes.
1. A discussion of comedians and the n-word is taking place on Hiphopkc.com. Drop by and weigh in, if you care.
2. Mac Minister, the guy who a lot of people think killed KC rapper, gangster and sometime gangsta rapper Fat Tone, said recently that he did no such thing.
3. Lawrence.com just did a feature article on Sonic Spectrum host Robert Moore. That illustration is pretty amazing, even more so for having been done, evidently, by Jesse Katsopolis. Honestly, though, when I first saw the article, I was like wtf, because I'm not sure Robert's played a new show of SS in two years. Well, that's an exaggeration, but there has been an excess of "archived" shows since he started up the very worthy venture that is Oxblood Records. But, Robert, if you're reading this, then, hey, just because they wrote a big story on you in Lawrence and got John Stamos to draw your caricature -- that doesn't mean you can keep passing off re-runs! For goodness sakes, I turned on your show last Saturday and heard you talking about the hype around that "new" band from Glasgow... Franz Freakin' Ferdinand. Sorry, but you'll just have to work harder, old sport. We must have our entertainment.
4. To supplement this week's Wayward Son (not yet up online or I'd link it; check here later this evening), a gallery of photos from the breakfast dance, all taken by Scott Burnett.
