Ed Banger producer DJ Mehdi has passed away at age 34. Here’s the incredible video for his track “Signatune”.

Oh man… Mehdi was that rare class of musician who could make a whole room that wasn’t even there to see him still go absolutely apeshit on the dancefloor. I’ve seen it happen first hand.



Howard Zinn, the Boston University historian and political activist who was an early opponent of US involvement in Vietnam and a leading faculty critic of BU president John Silber, died of a heart attack today in Santa Monica, Calif, where he was traveling, his family said. He was 87.

Without Howard Zinn, I wouldn’t have gone into History. Simple as that.
