The PADcast / Episode #005: “Namaste & Cream”

XL & the Slacker Pad start this episode off by recapping the Cavi Sounds party at Melody Lounge and then go into other drunk stories of days past. The Bruno Mars cultural appropriation talk continues (17:20) which carries the crew into a discussion about the Robin Thicke/Pharrell/Marvin Gaye controversy (19:42). XL talks about why his Mayer Hawthorne remix never got an official release (25:08). This week's Beer & Tell segment gets uncomfortably 'creamy' (27:36). A deep conversation about Mercury retrograde leads XL to realize he's been pronouncing 'namaste' wrong all these years (37:32). The Pad discusses the Facebook 'data breach' controversy (40:06). XL shares a story about hitting a middle school crush in the neck with a tennis ball (44:00). Things fall apart from there in the best way but the Pad keeps it creamy!
