Jackie Mason's School of Economics


Hi, periodic TSYOA blogger Joe Garden here. Confused by the recent economic woes befalling the world because of the falling U.S. subprime mortgage quandry? Then let Mr. Jackie Mason bring you up to speed!

Or, if you prefer a different viewpoint with less hands-over-the-head gesteculating, check out NPR's Marketplace, who have been covering this for a while.

Franlky, I like Jackie Mason's optimistic, if less accurate, viewpoint a little more.

What are your favorite recent TSOYAs?


So a lot of public radio stations are poking around The Sound of Young America lately. One of the things they like to do is listen to CDs of shows, which I of course am happy to make for them. However, being so close to the production process, it's often tough for me to know what the best TSOYA shows are.

So... go here on our forum and vote on your favorite. Feel free to add your thoughts to the thread, as well.

Your input, as always, is immensely appreciated.

RIP Max Roach

Living with Baduizm


Going to a lot of poetry slams lately? Do you find yourself preternaturally obsessed with rimshots? Do you keep talking about playing Jimi Hendrix in a movie? Is your rap album on sale at Starbucks?

You may be living with Baduizm. Luckily, the good people at Oh Word have scanned a wonderful pamphlet that can help you in your struggle with this debilitating disease.

I am fucking loving it.
