  • For about five years, which spanned my marriage and the birth of my first child, Soulstrut was my online home. The site I checked when I opened my computer, the site I refreshed to see how the latest geopolitical battle between Vitamin, Rockadelic, …
  • At this point, Brady's best course is to accept the punishment with a public statement like, "The NFL has meted out a very severe punishment. Their conclusion disregards information provided to them by the Patriots and by my agent Don Yee. Although …
  • Man, I'm feeling you there. I just posted a message on Fatback's Mingering Mike 45 thread about this very same issue. I really want to hear from you guys on this. Are we going too far? I'm thinking we need to slow down a little- at least determine w…
  • From what we've seen here, I feel comfortable saying that Mingering Mike was a dedicated, obsessed, and ultimately frustrated artist. As with all art, you don't have to like it, but we should all be able to respect the time, energy, and focus it req…
  • And with the mingering mike love getting blogged all over the world, we've just made our sequel: Nerds in Paradise.
  • Thanks for the beandip fellas. Soulstrut is always number one in my heart. And this record deserves its place atop the Soulstrut 100. XO, JRoot
  • LaserWolf said: I scored daily. I'm sure it was the same for HC in Eugene. Eugene was ridiculous back in those days. Mr. Mike's records over behind the Safeway near South Eugene couldn't give away records cheap enough. Then there was the pl…
  • I don't really care about the PSI in the balls, but ..having a softer football makes it easier to grip -- for QBs, for receivers, for RBs. The data regarding the Patriots fumble rates at home are pretty staggering, and date back to 2007. It seems li…
  • Fun thread -- reminds me of the old days. On Stamping. I have a rubber stamp collection - mostly alphabets from the 40s and 50s, but a few sets of words and images. (Clon away.) So I understand a stamping impulse generally. I have also…
  • I didn't watch the first Presidential debate between Romney and Obama, but from the excerpts and the fallout that I've seen, the overwhelming impression is that the President put in a very poor debate showing. He didn't challenge, he didn't engage,…
  • Soulstrut Legal just lost its best DJ. RIP. so sad
  • james said:I'd remind folks that history has shown that you should only nominate for moderator people whom you would like to see stop posting. Come back DCastlevania! Hi James. When shall we next meet at Gaylords?
  • SLAM! b/w I can't tell if this actually happened. I don't know what to believe.
  • I knew somebody had to jack the Bantu Village for beats.
  • Horrible news. Absolutely horrible. There is far too much senseless killing in America. Maybe it's time to change your location Breez? Or maybe just put it in bold face?
  • Rockadelic said:I'm into records....hunting for them....buying them....listening to them....selling them.....and I'll go anyplace like-minded people want to discuss them.....if they talk about current events, sports, etc. even better........every pl…
  • LaserWolf said: But really, what credit does James Brown deserve from rock critics? Seems that the bulk of classic rock exists in a world where James does not. The kid with the stuttering posts feels like he's being clowned out of t…
  • Saw this last summer at the Boone Dawdle, the summer excursion of the True False film festival. Enjoyed it tremendously! This summer's Boone Dawdle film was "The Source." Father Yod Heads know the deal. EDIT: More info on The Source…
  • Records aren't about money for me, but records are about money for Funk You. I bought some records from the kid back in 2004 or 2005, and always had a good experience. Back then, when Funk You was building its brand, you wouldn't have found a VG- …
  • Despite being into a lot of soft-batch keebler elf music, I don't really like Rumors.
  • The correct process is underway. It shouldn't take a federal investigation, presidential proclamations, and massive public pressure to get police and prosecutors to do their jobs, but it is progress towards justice to get the correct process underwa…
  • Ako - do you live in Ames? One of my best friends lives up there and I get through there sometimes. Too bad I didn't get through for the record sale!! JRoot

  • Between the strip clubs, the inquiry about what happened after the strip clubs (!), and ending it on the note of "he never sees his son and his son's mom can't believe it," my impression of the writer is that he doesn't really like Diplo, but he's k…
  • Trying a 12-year-old as an adult for first degree murder is an aggressive prosecution strategy (which is about all I can say on the subject without running into grandma's proscription about saying something nice...). We'll see how she handles the M…
  • I am incredulous that Zimmerman has not been arrested or charged. He is known to have committed a homicide. The victim is known to have been unarmed. The job of police is to arrest this man. The job of prosecutors is to arraign the man o…
  • I haven't seen Waiting for Superman, but my man who is an education prof absolutely hates that movie with a white hot passion. He describes it as an insidious and decontextualized commercial for charter schools, which in his view will only further …
  • white_tea said:Speaking of Portland -- the new look squad out-hustled Chicago at home on Friday, thereby creating a new definition of Trap Game: Fired the coach, traded their center, dumped their former No. 1 overall, and were on the road -- now tha…
  • pickwick33 said:Dante said:i want to know if pickwick owns this record. Nope. It sounds like something I could take or leave either way, to be frank. Not on my shopping list, but if I found it in a dumpster, I'd take the chance. The two…
  • It's times like this that I really miss Chicago. Down here in the Show Me, it's all conceal and kari steez. We're more likely to hear the Moo and Oink (RIP) than to shop there.
  • Great looking site. A nice contribution to the history of the label. Please keep us posted on release information.
