Probably something to do with the time zones.

I think these boards run on Pacific time, no?

As for The Roots, congrats on having DYWM?!!!??! go gold. I love that album. Actually, it was an acquired taste. I really wasn't expecting such a jazzy tone when I first copped it. It's become one of the CDs I enjoy listening to most though.

Edit: Actually the boards go by whatever settings you choose. It does seem off by 15 minutes though.

Congrats to the Legendary, more classic than mary-mary, keepin' out the penitentiary, never ever sedentary, always most exemplary, The Roots Crew forever primary... next stop platinum, diamond, double WORLD!

I remember getting that tape and playing it on my walkman all of the freakin' time. That is in my top 5 hiphop albums.

Not that it counts much but GOOD JOB GUYS, congrats, and thanx for making an über trés cool album.
