Ohhhh! My bredren from waaay back! This one put me on a flashback to us chilling at the station Thursday into Friday, then riding out in The Couch (my beige beater '85 Caprice Classic), toting crates, and him rocking gigs Friday into Saturday and beyond! Memories. Good to hear DJ Soul (ha, going with the throwback handle) still doing the damn the right damn way... just like did when he was running the WVUA-FM Wide World Of Hip-Hop back in the guts of the Golden Era. Soul sent me a CD y'all. Fortunately, he included a link to the mix online, so he went new school enough for me to share with y'all. Up with the tech, but still...
45 Forty-Five Records mixed on two turntables; No Serato and no special edition remixes; Extended version of this mix coming soon
Thank you, DJ Soul (aka Everett Whiteside aka RunWRC) my University of Alabama schoolmate, for the blessing of "45 Forty-Fives." And Happy Belated Birthday homie!!
(Click play and enjoy the stream above, and ooh's and aah's you get from learning where some classic Hip-Hop samples came from... and from memories of actually playing some of these jams on tapes and vinyl, if you were around back then. And keep reading for more great stuff after the jump.)
What's up, my brother?! You know every time I make a mix CD, I think about you, college radio, and that Nervous/Wreck Beat CD I made for you. Not that I make many CDs these days (only 4 in the last 10 years).
I don't know - this one in particular brought back college memories and seeing posts on Facebook w/ your musings on the current state/glory era of rap. I thought I'd send you my latest offering...If you get a sec, let me know what you think.
(Excerpt from the letter... yeah, a handwritten letter, Everett included with the CD and some running stickers.)
And Everett has his running club up in Oregon running things! Check out the healthy zen of this Hip-Hop Nation citizen at www.WhitesideRunning.com (hmm...maybe I should connect him and the homie Gerald Olivari with The Remix and the Movers & Pacers Running Club he's down with).

Other hoverboard vids we've posted to date have been less than or different than what sci-fi has us expecting - like not that 'real' Marty McFly board we've been looking forward to. But this video is showing skateboarders riding and getting dumped, grinding rails and making jumps! Hey, if it walks, talks and squawks like a duck, it must be, right? Oh wait, this thing can ride across water??? Sh!t it can 'hover' like a duck? Incredible!
We've made the impossible, possible: The Lexus Hoverboard is here... The Lexus Hoverboard represents true innovation and imagination, together pushing the boundaries of technology even further.

DOPE! Now there's a real-life Light Cycle... pretty much taken right off the screen from "Tron." Science fiction, once again, becomes science fact! Want one? Pretty pricey. See?
(See a Light Cycle in action after the jump.)
Tron Lightcycle sells for $77,000 http://t.co/gIRX0fWftl pic.twitter.com/KH5GCOjx96

The all-electric Light Cycle modeled after the machines in Tron makes a head-snapping case for whisper-quiet technology [as compared to standard, louder, motorcycles]. Since the latest Lithium ion batteries are so small (thanks, cell phone engineers!), motorcycle designers can go nuts with new concepts.

Woooohoooo! Now, you don't HAVE to travel a half world away to 'ack a damn fool'... but if you're going to go extreme, go EXTREME in every way! Like, for example, you might travel to Dubai and jump off the world's second highest residential structure for fun. Just make sure the camcorder is on; like these folks did.
SkydiveDubai and XDubai have partnered with DreamJump to bring dreams to extreme reality when they opened the opportunity for limited people from the public to jump using the DreamJump System. Dubai Film has partnered alongside SkydiveDubai and XDubai to bring the fear, adrenaline, laughter, excitement, and joy for you to enjoy.
Okay, yeah. This is INSANE!
