Growing up in the 70’s, watching Bruce Lee movies and “Kung-Fu theater” on our local TV channel was one of the highlights of my teen years. Well, it still is 50 years later!
Thank you Derek Stubinski of MVD VISUAL for lacing me with the double DVD set of a true classic, SONNY CHIBA in “KARATE BEAST FIGHTER” and “KARATE BEAR FIGHTER.” I remember after the late & great Bruce Lee passed away in 1973, along came a martial artist from Japan named Sonny Chiba. He'd really take his martial arts to the next level by injecting his fist into his opponent's body & literally pulling out their heart. “OUCH!”
Both movies are directed by Kazuhiko Yamaguchi. They were adapted from the popular manga series, “Karate Baka Ichidai” by Ikki Kajiwara from 1971-1977 and chronicled the life and legend Mas Aceyama. I still have his paperback books in my collection.
Both features are on
BLU-RAY. Guess how I spent my weekend.
Yes, a weekend with the late & great, Sonny Chiba!

The late Gary Jackson (HITS Magazine R&B Editor) & Nasty-Nes.
Moving to LA & becoming
HITS Magazine's Rap Editor had it perks. Getting to know & work with Gary Jackson is one I'll always be thankful for. (R.I.P.) my friend. "This is Gary!"

I remember like it was just yesterday, but it was in 1983 when I had the honor to debut Angela Bofill’s music on Seattle’s 1250 KFOX radio. The legendary singer passed away at the age of 70. TV One’s “UNSUNG” recently profiled her story. I didn't realize she'd survived two strokes.
“TOO TOUGH” will always be my favorite track.

Last week I was back home in the “206” Seattle. The magic happened on both Thursday (15th) & Friday (16th) nights.

On Thursday we were at Rainier Avenue Radio’s Black History Month Museum at 4916 Rainier Ave South. Sheila Locke, Sir Mix-A-Lot & I reunited for the first time since NASTYMIX Records closed in 1992. We shared behind-the-scenes look at the birth, creation & fall of NASTYMIX Records!
Friday found us at the
206 Zulu’s 20th Anniversary event at Madame Lou’s (2505 1st Avenue).
Both nights were memorable!
