"I can hear my mother call"

If you listen to Dr. Dre and don't know Funkadelic/Parliament, shame on you!  "Cosmic Slop" was not sampled by Dr. Dre, but I love that song.   I had to put "Cosmic Slop" on.  You feel me?

Sometimes I forget my Ipod and I listen to Pandora.  When I do listen to Pandora I'm always introduced to new artists, which is no surprise since I only listen to records or my Ipod.  I'm not exposed to new music as often as I would like to be, since I don't listen to the radio and music videos are non-existent. . . well to basic cable.   I don't think I would hear anything good from those outlets anyways.   Man, I do wish I had the Fuse channel; they show "Juice" every night.  Man that would be great.
