BooSlick Chronicles - Only on NHV!

As an experiment in film, I'm spending 9 afternoons with Jahmal, from Newhallville who collects high fives around the neighborhood like Mario collects coins.  He has great ideas, and seasoned talent.  We know one another through a mutual friend, DJ Remarkable, who worked at Cutlers in the 1990's.  I bought all of my records as a kid from Mark, who recently crossed paths with me and we began discussing the possibility of doing a show with Jahmal.  These will appear on his site, as well as future episodes on both here on the main site, as well as the Music Blog.

The formula that we came up with is kind of a combination of what an actual normal afternoon of hanging out in Newhallville is really like.  You can also get to the show via BooSlick.Com

This is part 1 out of 9 which we'll be working on over the next few months.  If you have questions for Boo Slick, post them as comments and we'll try to work that into the next show.

Next episode's focus is homelessness and we're going to go to the New Haven Green to talk to more people about their personal experiences.  Enjoy this 6 minute video.  The full series should probably be a full 45-minute watch, with interviews, conversations, and freestyles all interwoven into one.
