We need more House.
From my generation, I can see how house music pioneered in Chicago (it was largely black and gay) and moved to gay scenes in different cities, from Boston down to D.C., and everywhere in between. Back in the 90s, the perception of house music was very different—especially on the hip-hop scene. House music is gay, you don’t fuck with it—only as a joke. Something like Jungle Bros’ “I’ll House You” was a gimmick. It’s a far cry from the David Guetta–fed climate of today’s urban radio, where every current rapper needs a house record to break into the charts. But back in the 80s and 90s, house and techno moved and grew rapidly in Europe, where it incubated and became the sound we have today on the radio. It’s a long way from the music made in garages and cheap hardware (like the 303 synth) in the 80s and 90s and today, on laptops using free programs. That makes it sound so raw and exciting—and that’s what we have with the ballroom music that Mike plays every Tuesday.
Inside Job, Narrated by Matt Damon (Full Length HD = 1 HOUR & 48 MINUTES)
‘Inside Job’ provides a comprehensive analysis of the global financial crisis of 2008, which at a cost over $20 trillion, caused millions of people to lose their jobs and homes in the worst recession since the Great Depression, and nearly resulted in a global financial collapse. Through exhaustive research and extensive interviews with key financial insiders, politicians, journalists, and academics, the film traces the rise of a rogue industry which has corrupted politics, regulation, and academia. It was made on location in the United States, Iceland, England, France, Singapore, and China.
