Happy belated birthday to Jesus Murphy
, DJ Critical, Uncle Climax
(NSFW audio), Stinkin' Rich
(NSFW audio), Dirk Thornton
, Buck 65
, or as his mom called him, Richard Terfry
. Born in the year of the rat, and he's a Pisces, which makes him a rat fish
, but by trade, he's a turntablist/ MC/ producer/ broadcaster
. Generally he makes some form of hip-hop
(some NSFW lyrics), though as of late, he's been broadening his style, as heard in his cover of Leonard Cohen's Who By Fire
) and Paper Airplane
(official "lyric" video). In tribute to his 41st birthday, there's a lot more music inside. [more inside]

Another salvo in the growing culture war.
PABAAH (Patriotic Americans Boycotting Anti-American Hollywood) takes on Skinny Puppy and college radio. College radio mostly yawns; Some fans resort to bad language and idle threats, a few others offer highly eloquent and reasoned replies.

Most anyone who has been involved in college radio is familiar with the uphill battle faced in injecting something new, different, and cool into the music world when so many artists and labels lack the clout required to get noticed. It is a shame that the College Media Journal
, the music charting hub of the college radio world, has admitted
to falsifying playlists
for their own apparent gain. What does this say about the place of college radio and indie music in the music industry these days?

Despite royalty costs that are lower than for commercial stations, numerous college and community radio stations have either shut down their Internet streams or on the verge of doing so. It's not just royalties killing these webcasts -- there are also regulations that require college stations to report every song they play and restrictions that would force college stations to police how often they play any given artist. Stations are trying to unite and fight these restrictions
, but is it too little, too late? Nearly twenty webcasts have already gone under...
