  • BS of the Sun Podcast 8/5/15: Send in the clowns

    in Basketball

    Paul Coro from the Arizona Republic joins the show to discuss the foolishness surrounding Marcus Morris's twitter bonanza, Summer League and the rest of the team's moves this offseason.


    In addition to Coro, Dave King and Jim Coughenour examine the ruckus caused by ex-Sun Marcus Morris and whether it might be cause for concern with his twin brother, and current Sun, Markieff Morris.


    Is the Suns organization partly at fault for the scorched earth nature of recent player departures and should the team finish cleaning house? Does a trade of Markieff for less than equal current talent have minatory implications on the team's 2016 playoff hopes?


    This episode is all Morrii... because these guys are such a charming pair to fawn over.


    We'll try to keep the clowning around to a minimum.

  • Urban Therapy with Sun #146 A Long, Carzy Summer.

    in Lifestyle

    We see a lot of strange things in the summertime. You never know what you're gonna get on a daily basis while you're driving, riding public transportation, walking, sitting on your porch or steps, shopping, looking out of your window or whatever. The summertime does crazy things to people. It' makes some people act out. When you think about it, you've probably seen the wildest things ever during the warm weather months. So, what have you seen this year? How about last year?
    This is a call in show.
    You are encouraged to share anything crazy that you've seen this summer. Nothing is too wild, ratchet, ghetto, unbelievable, ridiculous or just plain wrong.
    I know that personally, I don't have to leave my street. I have pictures! They give me a show every single day! Wait until I share my stories. Share yours as well and let's have some fun on this show.
    There may be drugs involved. In fact I know there will be.

  • Nelson Alburquenque and the Rise of Tikal Sun

    in Indie Music

    Nelson Alburquenque bio:



    Nelson Alburquenque is a songwriter and poet from North Hollywood, California. He is known as the rhythm guitarist for the band Tikal Sun.
    Born in Santiago, Chile, Alburquenque was adopted at the age of two years old and grew up in the suburbs of Washington, DC, the son of second generation Jewish-European Americans. 
    Alburquenque, most notable for his composition work in Tikal Sun, first discovered the acoustic guitar at 15 years old in 2004. Learning did not come easy, as Alburquenque soon found his hands were too small to form both basic and complex bar chords. After a year of taking a hiatus from learning guitar, Alburquenque re-tuned his strings in his Sophomore year of high-school, thereby bringing the notes closer to his hand. Throughout the years, Alburquenque has modified his original tuning, in addition to creating additional alternative tunings, all of which Alburquenque continues use to paint his musical landscapes within Tikal Sun.


    Today, Alburquenque has independently authored over 150 songs, contributing all rhythm guitar for Tikal Sun. 
    While Alburquenque’s native/Inidgeni music is unique and often earns the praise of his peers, Alburquenque himself remains humble and generous in his relations with his fellow artists. A follower of his own spiritual philosophy, nyi, Alburquenque’s dream for the world is to see the recognition and preservation of all indigenous communities around the globe. Through his Indigeni music in Tikal Sun, Alburquenque hopes to honor and shed light on the Native voice.
    He is 26 years-old.

  • Urban Therapy with Sun #144 The 90-Day Probation Period.

    in Lifestyle

    Many jobs make a new employee wait 90 days before they can claim full benefits as a full-time employee. During this time, an employee is not expected to have any unexcused latenesses or absences. If the employee violates the rules within that time period, he/she can be terminated uncontested. Ever wonder why 90 days is the measurement that companies use to grade new employees? Let's see if we can find out why.

    Many women have employed the 90 day rule when it comes to having sexual relations with a new potential relationship. Is this a result of reading Steve Harvey's book Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man? Has this changed the game as far as dating is concerned? Can a book overrule what the heart feels? What would be the benefits that are derived from making a man wait 90 days to have sex? Would you use that criteria? Should a man be expected to wait for that long? Is that a long time?

    What are some other things that people wait 90 days for?
    How about drug rehab? Isn't that the time period that most in-patient programs use to determine whether an addict has successfully completed detox? Why 90 days?
    What's up with the 90 day rule? Is there something valid behind that time period?
    Listen to the show on Wednesday and let's see what we can find out.

    Have you ever had a loved one that received Hospice Care? What are some of the factors that determine whether a person should choose hospice Care or or not?
    What is the emotional toll that is taken on the family of the recipient? Is Hospice Care always the end of the road for the recipients? Does anyone ever come back from receiving Hospice Care or is it usually time to just start making funeral arrangements?
