"old school"
 
"Revolutions on Air" is the story of mix show legends and studio wizards like Shep Pettibone, Tony Humphries, The Latin Rascals, Marley Marl, and Kool DJ Red Alert - innovators whose “anything goes” attitude pushed the emerging hip-hop, electro, freestyle, and house music scenes and kept radio listeners citywide hooked to their tape decks in order to record these now-classic mixes.

"I had a picture of George Washington Carver [a black inventor who was born into slavery] on the wall next to my desk," he told Vintage Computing in an interview. "And she said, 'This could be you.' I mean, I can still remember that picture, still remember where it was."

It's hard to deny Lawson's geek cred: He ran an amateur radio station out of his housing project after building a ham radio on his own (complete with an antenna hanging out of his window and a radio license).

He also spent his teenage years repairing electronics all over the city. Most impressively, he taught himself most of what he knew about engineering. Lawson attended Queens College and the City College of New York before working at several firms, including Grumman Electric and Federal Aircraft. After scoring a job with Kaiser Electronics, which focused on military technology, Lawson moved to Silicon Valley

The craziest secrets of Marvel's Original Secret Wars Comic

"The name wasn't Marvel's idea either.

According to then-editor-in-chief and Secret Wars writer Jim Shooter, Mattel told Marvel that the words "secret" and "wars" tested well with focus groups of children, and nobody bothered to try to think of anything more. So when the new Secret Wars comes out in April and May and sells a hundreds of thousands of issues and potentially millions in merchandise, remember it's only named that because of a bunch of kids in the '80s." via +io9

As you get ready for Marvel comics' mega-event this summer, it's worth remembering this isn't the first time Secret Wars has been waged. Back in 1984, a similarly "covert conflict" enveloped these heroes and villains. How much do you know about the first event that changed Marvel universe forever?

Lawd! This place has always been a main stopping point anytime I am in the area. It is so good that "in the area" includes a 60min drive because it is worth it. Food - the food was great. Just a heads-up that this place serves Native (un) Meats (aka veggie or fake meats). I'm okay with that but I know some folks are not so I wanted to flag it for you. But don't you fret as they have enough options that don't include this that will leave you satisfied. Make sure and try their flavored drinks aka Agua Frescas! Atmosphere - a lovely airy space that is very welcoming. You almost feel healthier when you are in there. The wood decor makes it feel welcoming to all (incl. Ron Burgundy) and the chalk written signs and menu add to the light hearted feel of this place. Value - The portions are very sizable. The burgers or bowls will be good enough to fill you as the only thing you eat there (plus a drink). It always feel like the price i$ right when the bill comes. Returnability - (aka would I go back). I would go back anytime I am near this or any Native Foods as I've never had a bad meal and working on going through the entire menu to know what are my top favorites. Service - Every time I walk in, there are greetings from everyone in the store and asking if I need anything or have any questions. When I mentioned it was my first time there, my server even suggested that I get a refill to go of the drinks.

Overall I was happy with this trip. The Tofu Po' Boy was a bit messy though (messier than the normal Po' Boys) as it was hard to be contained on the sandwich. the drinks options were okay and the mac n cheese was alright.

They should have a sign "Welcome to Hanson Dry, we serve drinks!" This is an establishment that focuses on being an excellent place to have a drink. This may sound like a bad thing but I would argue that this mentality leads to exceptional business. The extent of food will be the pretzels that are served. I almost walked out after I found out they didn't serve any food. However, the customer service was probably one of the best I have ever received and that alone caused me and my team to stay the entire night there. I had a great conversation with the bartender (and I think part owner) about the history of various cocktails, venues along Fulton, learned a good amount about rum and whiskey. This is truly a place you should visit often and frequently.

This is a gem of a store that was launched by Mike Cole. There are many flavor options and also some pretty solid amazing flavor combos (like a red velvet waffle ice cream sandwich) that you will find very funny as they are inspired by pop culture and they will leave you satisfied. The price is pretty attractive as well. One of the best part is that it is open until midnight during the week and 2am during the weekends! You will want to visit at least once a month as he launches a "Flavor of the Month" the last one was "Material Girl" which was passion fruit ice cream with white chocolate kit kat and white fudge covered oreos! I have yet to have a bad experience there - which is why I gave it a 5.

a damn good doughnut! this is one of the surprising finds when it comes down to searching out fun foods for vegans. try the ice cream combination. the space also provides a chance to just relax and catch up with friends or strangers.

I had a great experience at Splitty. The best time was when John was the bartender and server. Get their for the happy hour and you get lower priced buns! They have two good veggie options (even vegan mayo!!!). The selection of beverages are suitable to pretty much any palate and they have a good range of cocktails to choose from that they are known for. Another great aspect was that the music for the night was rather exceptional. It is a small thing that I've seen many places overlook or do very very poorly. Splitty had a good range of genres and songs that covered the hours I was there. The one caution is that if you go there too late, you may find the type of bun that you want is unavailable as they sometimes run out of ingredients.
