Let's televise the revolution........
Carl Craig is pretty damn cool.. actually I think he’s a bloody genius, but lets not get too flowery or ahead of ourselves here, and…..on Saturday night, in the upstairs bar at the Studio, in front of about 150 people he was very very cool. The whole event was..just about- I was, as always disappointed by the ever disappointing
And the Studio has a way to go as a venue too…what’s up with closing the bar at 4am when the lead act has over an hour to go…AND…then refusing to serve even water to custo

Joe Cotton as a celebrity....reality shows on TV One...the failure to provide any news analysis or perspective whatsoever..and lets not even start on Breakfast (who's cousin is that James McConie and how on earth did he ever get on TV)...destroy the death star..sell the fucker off I say..its serves no real purpose anymore.....
