Make mine The Chronic

Next on the Good Advice list of suggested listening is Dr. Dre's 1992 gansta-funk opus The Chronic. A venerable hip hop classic among gangster rap aficionados, this album introduced me Snoop Doggy Dogg, and Dat Nigga Daz, two of my favorite rappers to this day. I had this album on tape, cd, and now mp3. The fact that I've been listening to it for twenty years should say enough. For some reason I still have to argue this albums "gangsterness" with my homie Mr. Foulstyles. With songs like "A Nigga Witta Gun", "Rat-Tat-Tat-Tat", and "Stranded on Death Row" it's gangster is not to be questioned. I don't know about Foulstyles sometimes... but I'm sure I don't have to remind you of this albums place in rap history. With that said, if you've never listened to The Chronic (and I don't know why you had not), do it today. That's some Good Advice.

Say It Loud......

Do you ever get lost in all the gay pride hoopla? I mean, we of the straight community deserve to be proud too, right?! On sale now in the HB Pencil Store, the official shirt of the Straight Pride movement... Okay, so maybe it's not quite a movement yet, but that's because you don't have your shirt yet. Grab one (or two) of these from the store, and be proud to be straight once again.

ps: and it's not anti-gay, it's just "pro-hetero". It's Good Advice!

Happy Labor Day!
