What's going on






So Under Pressure went over like a leaf blower... or something.
The new issue of the magazine is out now and there were some nice New Era caps too.

















































































Budda was out of town last show and I walked in from an operation on my hand for a minute, so Orion was forced to hold it down by himself, despite the fact that he didn't get a chance to grab his records. Luckily Malicious came through; Mr.Malish's Myspace, check it.

Where have you been?

If you haven't noticed, we've been off the last couple of weeks. Off The Hook radio has been hosting some club shows the past 2 Wednesdays. First there was the Souls of Mischief/Masta Ace show and then there was the Ice-T show which saw Shades of Culture re-unite to perform a song during D-Shade's set.
The lovely Corrine hooked us up with an interview with comedian Robert Kelly during the Just For Laughs festival , Budda said he'd hook him up with some rez smokes and he called Flow a serial killer numerous times, you'll be hearing the no holds barred, chopped up version soon, he's a good guy, check him out; http://www.myspace.com/robertkellylive

We'll be back August 1st. Don't forget, Under Pressure on August 12th.

Guest and guests

This past week, we attended the Nasty Show at Just For Laughs here in MTL. On the bill were host Nick Dipaolo, Robert Kelly, Jim Jeffries, Dave Attell, and Louis CK.

Dave Attell came by the radio show after the club show, you may remember that he used to do a show called Insomniac on Comedy Central and he came by the radio show and put us on TV.

We also had Freestyle Love Supreme on the show, they're an improv freestyle troop, complete with beatboxer for sound effects. They'll be playing at Cabaret Juste Pour Rire during the festival.

On a side note, I was just listening to this guys Myspace page; mrkoichi beats and was liking what I was hearing.

You're screwed, I'm screwed, she's screwed, he's screwed, we're screwed

Radio is not meant to be used as entertainment anymore. First Imus gets fired for saying "nappy headed hos", then 2 NYC jocks get fired for a prank phone call to a Chinese restaurant, then Opie & Anthony are suspended for 30 days(still under threat of being fired) because a homeless guy alluded to having violent sex with Condoleezza Rice, Laura Bush and Queen Elizabeth on an XM satellite radio channel that is branded 'XL' for 'explicit language' and you have the option of blocking that channel. Why is it OK for movies and TV to make jokes but radio has to be a serious medium? Why is it that a paid TV service, such as HBO or Showtime can air things that a paid radio service can't? If you hear any of these recent incidents out of context it's easy to jump to conclusions, but the Imus and O&A incidents were unscripted things that happened... things happen.

Link; Comedian Patrice O'Neal(regular guest on O&A) on Fox News(listen to the crew laugh;

Link; Story on CNN about PC special interests groups taking over your freedom to be entertained

Now given, all these jokes are not always funny, the hosts realize this but it is not against the law to offend somebody or bomb on a joke.

Further reading on JV & Elvis' career ending joke;
http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20070515/ennew_afp/usmediaasiaracism_070515035242

More on O&A's current suspension;
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070515/ap_en_ot/shock_jocks_sex_comment;_ylt=AvNkM47upgnPrDrNhfDkBR1xFb8C


By the way, Imus was fired in the middle of a yearly telethon he does for sick children and he has a ranch for terminally ill children and kids with cancer, which will both be affected by a couple of words. But Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson continue to be 'black leaders'.. who voted these guys as leaders?
There was recently a rape case of a black woman accusing 3 white Duke students of rape, it continued for a year during which time Jesse Jackson said that no matter how it turned out, he'd pay for the stripper/accuser to get a university degree, well, the case just closed and it turned out she was lying.

And as for Al Sharpton, just research Tawana Brawley and you'll see what a piece of crap that guy is.

It's about more than hos

COMMENTARY
Imus isn’t the real bad guy
Instead of wasting time on irrelevant shock jock, black leaders need to be fighting a growing gangster culture.
By JASON WHITLOCK - Columnist

Thank you, Don Imus. You’ve given us (black people) an excuse to avoid our real problem.

You’ve given Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson another opportunity to pretend that the old fight, which is now the safe and lucrative fight, is still the most important fight in our push for true economic and social equality.

You’ve given Vivian Stringer and Rutgers the chance to hold a nationally televised recruiting celebration expertly disguised as a news conference to respond to your poor attempt at humor.

Thank you, Don Imus. You extended Black History Month to April, and we can once again wallow in victimhood, protest like it’s 1965 and delude ourselves into believing that fixing your hatred is more necessary than eradicating our self-hatred.

The bigots win again.

While we’re fixated on a bad joke cracked by an irrelevant, bad shock jock, I’m sure at least one of the marvelous young women on the Rutgers basketball team is somewhere snapping her fingers to the beat of 50 Cent’s or Snoop Dogg’s or Young Jeezy’s latest ode glorifying nappy-headed pimps and hos.

I ain’t saying Jesse, Al and Vivian are gold-diggas, but they don’t have the heart to mount a legitimate campaign against the real black-folk killas.

It is us. At this time, we are our own worst enemies. We have allowed our youths to buy into a culture (hip hop) that has been perverted, corrupted and overtaken by prison culture. The music, attitude and behavior expressed in this culture is anti-black, anti-education, demeaning, self-destructive, pro-drug dealing and violent.

Rather than confront this heinous enemy from within, we sit back and wait for someone like Imus to have a slip of the tongue and make the mistake of repeating the things we say about ourselves.

It’s embarrassing. Dave Chappelle was offered $50 million to make racially insensitive jokes about black and white people on TV. He was hailed as a genius. Black comedians routinely crack jokes about white and black people, and we all laugh out loud.

I’m no Don Imus apologist. He and his tiny companion Mike Lupica blasted me after I fell out with ESPN. Imus is a hack.

But, in my view, he didn’t do anything outside the norm for shock jocks and comedians. He also offered an apology. That should’ve been the end of this whole affair. Instead, it’s only the beginning. It’s an opportunity for Stringer, Jackson and Sharpton to step on victim platforms and elevate themselves and their agenda$.

I watched the Rutgers news conference and was ashamed.

Martin Luther King Jr. spoke for eight minutes in 1963 at the March on Washington. At the time, black people could be lynched and denied fundamental rights with little thought. With the comments of a talk-show host most of her players had never heard of before last week serving as her excuse, Vivian Stringer rambled on for 30 minutes about the amazing season her team had.

Somehow, we’re supposed to believe that the comments of a man with virtually no connection to the sports world ruined Rutgers’ wonderful season. Had a broadcaster with credibility and a platform in the sports world uttered the words Imus did, I could understand a level of outrage.

But an hourlong press conference over a man who has already apologized, already been suspended and is already insignificant is just plain intellectually dishonest. This is opportunism. This is a distraction.

In the grand scheme, Don Imus is no threat to us in general and no threat to black women in particular. If his words are so powerful and so destructive and must be rebuked so forcefully, then what should we do about the idiot rappers on BET, MTV and every black-owned radio station in the country who use words much more powerful and much more destructive?

I don’t listen or watch Imus’ show regularly. Has he at any point glorified selling crack cocaine to black women? Has he celebrated black men shooting each other randomly? Has he suggested in any way that it’s cool to be a baby-daddy rather than a husband and a parent? Does he tell his listeners that they’re suckers for pursuing education and that they’re selling out their race if they do?

When Imus does any of that, call me and I’ll get upset. Until then, he is what he is — a washed-up shock jock who is very easy to ignore when you’re not looking to be made a victim.

No. We all know where the real battleground is. We know that the gangsta rappers and their followers in the athletic world have far bigger platforms to negatively define us than some old white man with a bad radio show. There’s no money and lots of danger in that battle, so Jesse and Al are going to sit it out.

New Grounds

We've been trying out a new phone system for the half-hour freestyle hour, so far it seems pretty good. We now answer the calls off air, then you get transferred to 'on-air' and if there's already somebody on-air, you get put on hold and put in line until the on-air line frees up, you then get automatically put on air.
