FEATURED ARTIST ~ BLOCKHEAD: Interview, Live Mix, & More

Blockhead grew up in downtown New York City. The son of an artist, early on he found his passion was for music. A fan of a whole range of sounds, especially hip-hop, Blockhead steadily built a tremendous collection of tapes and later CDs from innumerable artists. After a brief stint as a rapper, he realized his calling was behind the boards and not on the mic, and from there he began to produce beats.

Tue, 07/13/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Who needs facts when you've got opinions?

Facts? Don't bother me with the facts. An article from the Boston Globe discusses the ramifications of a University of Michigan study which shows that reality has very little bearing on one's deeply held opinions, whether right or wrong. In fact (so to speak), the study suggests a perverse tendency to cling even more tightly to one's beliefs whenever reality proves to be inconvenient.

With Joe on vacation, Abe probes the murky waters where faith and fact overlap.

Michael Parenti on Civil Liberties

Michael Paretni on Civil Liberties in the 21st Century, Part 1.

In his November 2009 lecture at the University of Hartford Dr. Michael
Parenti answers intriguing questions about democracy. Is US democracy a
result of capitalism as some claim - or does it exist - such as it is - in
spite of the current economic system. AND did the founding fathers even
envision a democratic system - and why were so many of them opposed to
democracy.
