Joonbugs, if you haven’t heard the latest After The Smoke EP, Microwaves, you are missing out! This is truly a great hip-hop album, a definite worthwhile listen for fans of the underground, space-texture, and electronic-melodic scene. Hailing from Tallahassee, Florida, After The Smoke is comprised of front man Rob Coin (Whuzi), and producers Joao Gonzalez (Soft Glas) and Day G. Their multi-genre mixture of hip-hop, R&B, and p-funk lend for an enigma of hazy atmosphere. With textures of different analog/digital synthesizers and drum beats that drive through their spiraling void of color, Whuzi ties it all together with his astonishing lyricism that is nothing short of poetry.

Christmas time is not the time to be caught being stingy, if only on the off chance that ghosts will visit you in the dead of night (or singing Muppets, either scenario is pretty frightening). Unfortunately for Jane Fonda, former 60s bombshell, and daughter of legendary Henry Fonda, she might be crowned this year's Grinchette. Her charity, the epynomous Jane Fonda Foudation, valued at nearly $800,000, has not donated a cent in five years. The charity allegedly made a paltry contribution of $1,000 to the Altanta Obstetric and Gynecological Society. Curiously, just because the foundation made no donation does not mean that the charity was idle. On the contrary--reports show that the foundation made 166 trades, netting about $2,200.

In fact, Winfrey said she never dreamed of being a mother while growing up compared to her best friend. “Gayle [King] was the kind of kid who, in seventh grade Home Ec class, was writing down her name and the names of her children. While she was having those kind of daydreams, I was having daydreams about how I could be Martin Luther King."
