This week, Dick Gregory had a few things to say about 'Django,' Lance Armstrong had a few things to say about steroids, and Vernon had a few things to say about the nightmarish future world we're building online. FNGTAC business as usual...

The Field Negros have reunited after an extended holiday to (eventually) dicuss "Django Unchained" and the conversation surrounding it. It's been awhile, so this one's a big'n; we're gonna try not to let it be another two months before we meet again, but just in case, we're giving you plenty to tide yourself over.

This week, Vernon brings you a talk he had with the incomparable Billy Cox, friend and collaborator of Jimi Hendrix. Billy sheds a little light on getting to know Jimi, working with Band of Gypsys, and what it was like to be on stage with Jimi at Woodstock.

For the first time in the history of the show, all three FNGTAC staff-members recorded this one together in the same room. Scheduling was a bitch so don't get used to it, but we had a good time nonetheless. This week's topics—hurricanes, elections, holodecks, Internet porn, Pixar, Star Wars and gun printers. You know how we do.

Our latest FNGTAC was recorded just as Hurricane Sandy was closing in on NYC, so after some updating, Vernon & Kamau discuss the controversy over Zoe Saldana being cast as Nina Simone in an upcoming biopic. This of course gives way to a larger conversation about ethnicity, casting, James Bond and Matt Damon—hurricane or not, this is still the FNGTAC.

In this episode, Vernon & Kamau discuss their thoughts on Jay-Z's recent adventures in Brooklyn and President Obama's recent adventures in trying to keep his job. Afterwards, our dynamic duo finds out what happens when the guy with final edit disagrees with those thoughts...

It's FNGTAC x TBwWKB! After a lengthy absence (read: our typical absence) the FNGTAC returns with an update on Kamau's new show, "Totally Biased" (premiering on FX Aug. 9th) as production officially begins. Kamau and Alex have a quick chat in the (still developing) offices of "Totally Biased" about how he got to this point and what the future might bring.

Feel free to contact us with anything else you might want to know...

Honestly, very little of this episode actually has anything to do with the title but... whatever. This week, Vernon and Kamau mostly discuss everyone's new favorite hologram—move over Princess Leia and will.i.am—Tupac "I Would Never Have Approved of This" Shakur.

We've been away for awhile, but I promise (promise) that it'll all be worth the hassle within the next few weeks. Big changes are in store for the FNGTAC, one of which includes breaking our dependence on Skype to facilitate the recordings. The whole gang will be converging on New York City soon and taking advantage of that in a number of ways, so your patience will be heavily rewarded very, very soon.

Come say 'hi:'
