Snoop Dogg's Manicure Got Us Feeling Some Kind of Way

morningamp:

"Van Halen, Motley Crue, spandex and make-up… kind of gay wasn’t it?" - Brian Babylon

Snoop Dogg’s “gender bending” long manicured nails are just another instance in which a contemporary Hip Hop artist has helped to break down a long held binary idea about gender. Listen to Dr. Coya Paz, Molly Adams, and Brian Babylon confront some antiquated notions of masculinity and femininity.

Tomorrow at noon on the Barber Shop Show, we’re focusing on two small businesses that through decades of service, became legends in their community: Uncle Remus’ Chicken and George’s Music Room. But, as we’ll hear, that legend doesn’t make them immune from struggle. Plus, we’ll unpack the debate about the proposed official name change for Chicago’s Stony Island Avenue (not one of those honorary brown signs… the real deal). Listen in on http://vocalo.org/ or at 89.5fm (NW Indy)/90.7fm (CHI)
