In maDCap's first edition of the segment "Gorm Report" with our San Francisco correspondent Laura Gorman, we sent her to the historic diner called Fog City. Located along the Embarcadero, Laura went to this fine establishment because we'd read their burger was badass, among many other items on their menu. In this episode of maDCap's Gorm Report, listen to executive chef and part owner Bruce Hill tell us what he likes in a burger as well as which celebrity he turned down for a reservation...

In the immortal words of Robert Kelly: "I don't see nothin wrong...with a little Bump n Grind." We here at maDCap agree wholeheartedly, and so does David Fogel of the music and events company 88DC. Along with partner Joe Liehr, Fogel had a vision for his hometown of Silver Spring, Maryland, that included an expanded bump program and robust grind capacity. Now, "Bump n Grind" is no longer simply a description of your sweaty Saturday, it's also the name of a new spot for coffee, music and...

But by night, he transforms into a sonic superhero and unrepentant bass warrior, Flux Pavilion. maDCap's second rendezvous with Flux Pavilion took place in a most unusual locale: the bathroom backstage at the Mad Decent Block Party at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland.

Laura Silverman of HBO's The Comeback

Laura Silverman plays Jane on the HBO series, "The Comeback" which had its season finale on Dec 28. The series was created by Michael Patrick King and Lisa Kudrow. I realize that not everybody who reads this is old enough to remember how most of us came to know Kudrow. For those not in the know, Kudrow played "Phoebe" on the acclaimed series "Friends." In "The Comeback" she plays Valerie Cherish, an embarrassing actress with a thirst for the big time, even when it wants nothing to do with...

In a segment we're going to call "Two Birds, One Scone" maDCap interns Kristy Nguyen and Alana Pedalino chat with Cullen Gilchrist, co-owner of the Blind Dog Cafe located in the Shaw neighborhood of Washington, D.C.

Without Further Ado, an Irreverent Coversation with Riff Raff

11/3/2014
More
I'm not sure where to begin. Once upon a time, we tried to interview Riff Raff at a festival. We approached him as he was throwing lawn chairs off of the deck of his trailer. He agreed to do interview. Unbeknownst to us (and perhaps to himself as well) he responds only in freestyle. Are these freestyled answers good? You be the judge. Just know that Riff Raff has no time for your opinion. Enjoy this conversation about absolutely nothing. https://www.facebook.com/RiffRaffMadDecent...
