By: Dan Gibson // March 14, 2008
Even if you aren't a parent, for better or worse, it's hard to escape the grasp of music for children these days. A section of the record store that was once a copy of Really Rosie and a few Disney Read-A-Longs has quickly moved past the Wiggles and Dora The Explorer to a booming busine… More »


Trick Daddy, The Rap World Misses You

By: Dan Gibson // March 14, 2008
Writing about Rick Ross, and repeatedly seeing the "Slip N Slide" label tag next to his album titles made me a little sad because I sure do miss Trick Daddy.

I saw a mini-marathon of old Pop Up Video episodes on VH1 Classic the other day, and it made me a bit wistful for the days when the channel could be counted on to occasionally be informative.
