Tonight, Pop Art Painter Jamie Roxx (www.JamieRoxx.us) welcomes Crack in Shell's James McFadden to the show.
Crack in the Shell, founded by James McFadden (Bass/Keyboards) and Daniel Alan (Vocals) in 2010, cannot be pigeonholed into just one musical category. CITS show variety both musically and vocally, ranging from punk to rock to psychedelic in style. Comprised of veteran players from TN. to CA. to Lebanon, the band's sound is as diverse as their background.
CITS have been making a name for themselves, and have played as direct support for The Gin Blossoms, Winery Dogs, Don Dokken, Bret Michaels, Geoff Tate, Lou Gramm, and more.
Crack in the Shell are currently putting the final touches on their video for “After Life,” and finalizing their third release ‘I Am Alive.’

The natural hair/loc lifestyle is a growing one. Everyday more women are deciding to embrace their natural texture and give up the "creamy crack" and more men are deciding to stop running to their barbers every 2 weeks. Though there are more and more people chosing to lock their hair, the loc lifestyle has changed drastically. Growing locs was once about the lifestyle and culture, but now its become commercialized, it's about style and fashion, using popular products, and most importantly a quick way to make money for some. The word "health" does not come to mind when most folks think about locs, which is unfortunate because the health of your hair is the most important part of your Loc journey, and that health starts from the scalp. The hair on your head ONLY grows from one place, YOUR SCALP. If your scalp is unhealthy, damaged, clogged with products, dried out from using dryers, then the chances of your locs being unhealthy is great. We are obsessed with techniques, styles, products, neatness, etc, while or scalps are being ignored. I say this to all my clients, "your hair is like a plant. If you don't take care of the soil, your plant will die". Take care of your scalp so you can grow a beautiful and healthy crown. For more information on locs care visit my website and don't forget to check out my radio show tonight @ 9 pm Eastern time and also subscribe to my youtube videos.

Joining Can We Talk for REAL, Wednesday night will be Dr. Watson, from Real Woman Speak. RWS is dedicated to impacting the lives of women through visual media and print by collecting our stories and preserving our histories So many stories have been lot but so many have been captured and will hold our history forever.Most recently, she was featured on the LGBT Radio Nation Show the topic being Intergenerational Communication. Dr. Watson has also been a guest on the Rhonda Sciortino radio show Crack the Code and the Detroit Area Agency on Aging Senior Solutions Radio Show. Since her retirement, she has ventured into yet another genre, film making. Starting a production company, Reel Women Speak is dedicated to impacting the lives of women through visual media. Women will have the opportunity to become empowered, enhance and develop their quality of life and recalibrate their future, thereby strengthening families and transforming communities. Collective Voices: Wisdom of our Lesbian Elders is her first independent film. Dr. Watson states that “whether it’s in my writing, art or film I have a deep need to recollect traditions and generational legacy, this perhaps comes from listening to stories from my elders specifically, African American women sitting, laughing, talking on porch steps or around the kitchen table.”
Dr. Debraha Watson describes herself as a mother of two adult children, a film maker, poet, short story writer, essayist, editor and retired higher education administrator. “I can be driven or complacent. Insecure or egotistical like all living creatures I am passing through stages. I am recovering, discovering and growing.”
It seems like another skeleton falls out of the United States’ closet every day. Whistleblowers are coming out of the woodwork, and the government is struggling to keep the scandals contained
In 1996, Gary Webb, a writer for the San Jose Mercury News, published a series of articles known as “Dark Alliance.” The articles detailed how the CIA turned a blind eye as Nicaraguan drug traffickers sold and distributed crack cocaine in Los Angeles throughout the 1980s. It also described how the Reagan administration protected drug dealers from prosecution.
US Army Private Bradley Manning is responsible for what some have called the biggest leak of secret military data ever. His actions also helped put WikiLeaks on the map, as he provided the organization with hundreds of thousands of classified documents.
Among the things Manning revealed were:
• A secret video, nicknamed “collateral murder” that showed US air crew laughing after killing dozens of people (including reporters and civilians) in an air strike.
• Detailed records of the civilian death toll in Iraq (even though the military repeatedly said there was no record). Out of 109,000 deaths logged in a six year period, 66,081 were unarmed civilians.
• US Soldiers committed horrific acts of torture on Iraqi prisoners, and despite hundreds of filed complaints, authorities never investigated.
• US defense contractor DynCorp was involved in child trafficking.
Currently Manning is being imprisoned by the military and is facing 21 charges, including “aiding the enemy,” which comes with a life sentence. Yes . . . Manning is in jail for exposing the US government paying a company that sold child slaves.
