HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAROL ANN!




“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts." (c) Washington Irvin


So, today my Mom is having a birthday party back home that I sadly cannot attend. :( Due to these circumstances I wanted to give her a lil shine that let her know I was thinking about her.

Artist: Ben Folds
Song Title: Rockin the Suburbs
This song shall always remind me of my 'male, middle class, and white' friend Mike... It's pretty funny, he's basically making fun of all the whinny bands that complain about having it so 'tough...' ENJOY! Ben Folds is an amazing pianist. I have tried several times to cover his songs, to no avail...

IRRESPONSIBLE WHITE PERSON WEDNESDAYYYY!


CHIP SALTSMAN

So, unless you were under a rock I'm sure you heard about Chip Saltsman sending out a Christmas tape with a song entitled 'Barack the Magic Negro'... While this is more than enough to get him 'IWP' status... I decided to post him now because he was STUPID enough to think that he would be promoting his candidacy for the RNC chairmanship INSTEAD of the ignorance that got him in the news back in December... Watch HERE as Contessa Brewer lays into him

HADOKEN!!! (c) Ken


Street Fighter 4 is cominggggg... and I'm pretty pumped, even though the game won't even be released on my outdated Playstation 2. I guess I will have to suck it up and upgrade (or get the computer version) lol. There are going to be a few new characters; Abel, Crimson Viper, Rufus, El Fuerte, along with the classics of course... (Ken, Ryu, Zangief, etc.) Now I know Street Fighter 3 was somewhat of a disappointment but I have high hopes for 4. After all, the arcade version of Street Fighter IV was voted Best Game of 2008 in Japan by the editorial staff of Arcadia magazine in the February 2009 issue of the publication. The game also won in the categories of "Best Graphics", "Best Production", and the "Reader's Choice Award". The character Ryu took the No. 1 spot in the magazine's "Top 20 Characters of 2008" in the same issue. PlayStation: The Official Magazine has rated the game 5/5 while Official Xbox Magazine has given Street Fighter IV a score of 95/100.

This game definitely brings me back to the old Super Nintendo days... I feel so old, but hey you gotta admit, it's a classic, I CAN'T WAITTTTT :)

I'm a loser baby/So why don't you kill me? (c) Beck


So I wake up around 9:00am this past Sunday; watch Meet the Press, read a little of Berger and Luckmann's The Social Construction of Reality and then decide to reward myself with some hilariousness. Now, I didn't know in what form this hilariousness would come forth into my life so I begin to start with television. I wanted to see what horrible show I could lose myself in for a few hours... after a couple seconds of channel surfing I settle on 'Tool Academy' (now reflecting back I should have looked a LITTLE longer, but you'll have my ADD to blame for this extreme decision). Tool Academy is a new VH1 show on which frustrated women bring their lying, cheating, egomaniac, and in many cases BROKE boyfriends on the show to 'straighten them out.' The show starts off by the tools girlfriends telling the tools that they are going on a show to compete for the title of 'Mr. Awesome,' however soon after arriving on the show they realize they are going to be schooled on how not to act like total morons.
I definitely think I lost at least 22 brain cells after watching this, but I digress... it was my own free will. The first thirty something minutes of the show consisted of the male contestants doing all types of ignorant things on camera while their girlfriends watched in a back room and cried. After the men are told they are being challenged to shed their tool-ish ways the tools and girlfriends watch the tools actions that were filmed previously. The girlfriends cry again and the tools feel bad for a millisecond, offer some fake sympathy, and all is well.
Their first challenge vastly approaches, in which they test their communication skills. They have to build a bed together; the tools are to read the instructions while their girlfriends build the bed. Several comments from the tools such as; 'you're stupid,' 'shut-up,' and 'I quit' later the challenge is over... I knew for sure the guy that just gave up was going home, but I was proven wrong when Dimitri 'The Greek God' gets voted off. Check out his girlfriends 'ultimatum' here....



What Dimitri basically said to pacify her was 'Ok, I love you ALRIGHT... NOW GET IN THE CAR... b*$&h' (c) BobbyG
... and then the other contestants with their comments are HILARIOUS!! 'She's stupid, her man ain't gon change.' That's so typical, they see clearly the wrong in someone else's situation but totally disregard that they're dealing with practically THE SAME THING...but that's denial for you. I guess that makes coping with their stupidity that much easier... by focusing on the wrong in someone ELSE'S situation instead of dealing with their own issues.

I mean I would have a lil more respect for this show if I thought it would impose change, but it's not. To me this show is the equivalent of some girl who just found out her cheatin, lyin boyfriend cheated for the 99th time so she doesn't answer his calls for a whole day, plays her Beyonce', Keyshia Cole, Mariah C. ladies empowerment records of her choice on repeat, listens to her girls repeatedly remind her of what she ALREADY KNOWS (her boyfriend ain’t ish) but the next day she goes back to answering his calls and everything is peachy keen. Now don't get me wrong, I know relationships take work, and people make mistakes, no one's perfect... and all that jazz but COME ON!! You just got BLATANTLY disrespected on national TV! He doesn't care about you... Some fights aren't worth fighting. If you don't stand for anything you will fall for everything. So do yourself a favor and stand for the respect of yourself... cause if you don't respect yourself best believe your man isn't going to either. Besides, you have to realize that you putting up with his mess is only ENABLING your man from being a better person. He has what he wants, he's comfortable, he is doing whatever he wishes with minimal if any repercussions at your expense. Think about it... If you're rewarding his disrespectful ways by staying with him, what motivation does he have to change?

One of these things is not like the others (c) Sesame Street

SUPRA SKYTOP...



LEVI GRECO...








Levi is truly swagger-jackin Supra with these wack imitations.... To top things off they had the NERVE to name these Greco, after the pro skater Jim Greco who has their own signature shoe with Supra. How bold can you get... $65 vs. $119.... I'm sorry, but I know I'm not alone when I say I'm willing to save up a couple more pennies and get the original.



I wouldn't put them on BLAST, but this isn't the first time they've been caught bitin...



Lookin pretty similar to the Vans to me...





Chuck Taylor's anyone?

IRRESPONSIBLE WHITE PERSON WEDNESDAY!!!

Khalood Bojanowski

Momma's Boy is a show on NBC in which female contestants compete for the affection of a male suitor, while also trying to gain approval from his mother. Khalood has made it abundantly clear that there are some characteristics that a female must have, or else she will not approve of her son's choice. "I cannot have a Jewish girl, I cannot have a black girl. It has to be a white girl," Khalood says. "I don't want somebody from a divorced family. I do not want somebody outspoken. I do not want somebody after my son's money. I want a girl just like me." She made it a point not to leave ANYONE out, also announcing to the house of females that Asians, Muslims, and "fat-butted" girls need not apply.

How sad it is that this is what NBC considered prime time worthy. Did the writers strike set you back THAT far? I guess Ryan Seacrest took it upon himself to 'bring NBC back' with a hit show and came up with this mess all on his own. That's the only logical explanation that I can come up with for this artistically and creatively remedial television show.
