1. Early '90s Beat-Digging Memories: "The Roosevelt Years" (VIDEO).


    Last year, the guys from Oakley Sunglasses Cheap Gasface were in town from France shooting the short film/documentary Fake Oakley Sunglasses Lookin4Galt Discount Oakley Sunglasses Knockoff Oakleys , for which I was interviewed (as I fondly recalled Beverly D'Angelo's topless scene in the motion picture, Fake Oakleys Hair Knockoff Oakley Sunglasses - an important event from my youth that intersected with the music Galt MacDermot). Anyways, before my testimonial we chatted about another important event: the Roosevelt Hotel record convention - a monthly event that attracted every significant New York-based hip-hop producer of the early '90s Cheap Oakleys Cheap Ray Bans , and shaped the sound of the music in ways people outside the "beat-digging" scene probably never realized. I wrote a piece about the Roosevelt for Wax Poetics a few years ago, and now Gasface has uploaded "The Roosevelt Years" a short interview with yours truly reminsicing a little more about those days. Included are some great photos from the late John Carraro - one of the major sellers at the Roosevelt. Hope you enjoy.
