...Since day one literally.   Madison's long history of protest continues, as Saturday's protests rose to a record breaking population of around 85,000 despite the passing of Walker's anti-union bill earlier in the week.  Demonstrators made it clear that the fight is not over.

A New Community: Official Periodic Hip Hop Forum Launched!

Related to Elements: HH Forum

The circle is now complete!  It's been a while since the last blog post was dropped here, but I got a good excuse...  I've been busy setting up a brand new Hip Hop forum, which will complete the trilogy of http://www.officialperiodic.com, http://officialperiodic.blogspot.com and now finally http://forum.officialperiodic.com.  The goal of the forum is simple, we want good people to discuss and build their knowledge of Hip Hop.  This will make it much easier for present and future contributors of the Periodic Table of Hip Hop Elements to provide their unique input to the project.  We have high expectations that this step will help Official Periodic become a more valuable resource to Hip Hop heads worldwide.  Please join us and bring your knowledge to the table!
