You might win some/But you just lost one (c) L Boogie

RIP Ernie Barnes...

I was obsessed with Mr. Barnes' painting Sugar Shack as a child... I first saw it on a Marvin Gaye I Want You album that my Mom had and fell in LOVE with it! You were a very talented painter Mr. Barnes, you will be missed...

*Somewhat interesting fact: Yeezy commissioned Ernie to do a piece that would serve as his interpretation of West's recovery from his 2002 car crash... It currently hangs from Kanye's dining room ceiling.

We used to ditch school and head straight to the mall... (c) Nelly

You free your mind in your androgyny (c) Garbage

I was called a tomboy this week, and though this isn't by any means as a first, I found it to come as quite a shock because this came from someone that I had recently met. Why the fact that this coming from a new individual was such a shock was because I thought I was much more feminine then I was back in the day. I have come a LONG way from when I would walk out of the door heading to High School and my Mom would say... "You're gonna wear THAT to school?" (mind you my Mom was an extremely rugged female being the only girl amongst four brothers, that recently in her latter years turned priss). HOWEVER I now realize that just because I am more feminine, doesn't mean that I am not a tomboy, I'm just EVOLVING lol. I decided to get a consensus from a couple people; two that I have known FOREVER (my lil bro and best friend) and a couple from people that I hadn't known quite as long.

My lil brothers answer: "You don't look like one, but you act like one." I suppose that I am content with that answer... Looks can be deceiving should be tattooed on my forehead because I know that deep down I am not at ALL what I appear to be.

My best friends answer: "I definitely don't think you are a tomboy anymore... You are borderline prissy." Mind you, he thinks that I am not a tomboy anymore because I recently discovered a love for eyeshadow. He is so used to uber rugged Meezy that I suppose he can't see that I am expanding my horizons.... growing, if you will... lol. My brother found the whole "prissy" allegation to be complete blasphemy.

J's answer: "I think you are a tomboy, you're just one who likes makeup, pumps, and the occasional freakum dress.... I mean you play sports, like sports, and rock sneakers and play video games. All of which are boy activities." Now of course the sociologist in me disagreed with the things J listed as being "boy activities" but I digress.

I guess you learn something new everyday... I suppose to the world, Meezy is a tomboy. I am not labeling myself, even though I get typecasted all the time... :-p but one thing I do know is that I am NOT prissy! lol

I was watching a Chelsea Lately rerun that I had DVR-ed and forgot about and SHIRLEY MANSON WAS ON IT!!!! I love her... It was delightful... That is what prompted the title of this blog, and the randomness of this video below being on this post.

George Will

Mr. Will earns this weeks 'IWP' spot for blaming all of societies il's on DENIM, yes as in JEANS... Read this HERE for yourself folks, that is if you can get past the excessively and unnecessarily complicated banter George uses as an attempt to drive his point home.

Oh MY GOD!! (c) Carol Ann

So, I was going to drive all the way home to meet Mr. Smith but I had to be responsible and stay in Columbus for school/work. Carol Ann DEFINITELY made it up to me by having Will Smith call my phone... :)

This happened WAY back in November when Mr. Smith did his multiple city tour promoting Seven Pounds... I apologize for taking so long for me to post it up here :)

This is a video of a couple of Dominoes employees doing some triflin stuff to the food they plan on delivering to others... Apparently they later told their boss that this video was purely a joke and that they would never do things like this to actual people's orders... However, joke or not their stupidity resulted in them getting FIRED... With all the IWP's that I have encountered this week, you two have without a doubt earned this coveted (ok, so maybe coveted is a HUGE stretch) spot.

She get it from her mama! (c) Juvenile

I have come to terms with the fact that in the Lou I shall ALWAYS be referred to as "Carol Ann's daughter..." Below are a couple of pics of her and I at her client's establishment (The Loft)... She was working to promote Majic 105's Happy Hour with Tony and I was put to work taking snapshots of the event for the promotions team. There's never a dull moment with Carol Ann I tell ya... So much for coming to the Lou and just chillin out avec ma mere... I swear our roles have always been reversed... I'm the old lady, and she's the young hip one always on the go. Why oh why does she get to be so much cooler than I am...? NOT FAIR!!! *runs away from screen pouting*

Me and Ma Mere

Some pretty amazing ladies that wanted to take a pic with the "photographer" lol

Carol Ann and Fletch

Check out more pics of the event HERE...

You're DESPICABLE!!! (c) Daffy Duck

Well, after six years of the run around the nut job also known as Phil Spector was finally charged with murder today. I can't say I'm shocked that it took this long, despite the fact that Mr. Spector said "I think I killed somebody" to police while in custody. He will be formally sentenced on the 29th of May so stay tuned....

The HuSTLe City (c) The History Channel

So it's Easter, and in the typical negro fashion I am congregating with fellow family members over pork and other various greasy foods. So, it's time to settle down and watch a movie, and after a few minutes of deliberation my cousin Siera and I settle on Doubt or Choke (bootlegs of COURSE), my family however wasn't having that and opted to watch a documentary about our very own town...

Check out the Lou on The History Channel's Gangland below

Cause I'm a loser (c) 3 Doors Down

So I stayed home on Saturday night (because I am cheap and don't have DVR) just to watch the Yeah Yeah Yeahs perform on SNL and I was NOT disappointed... Even though I REALLY wanted them to perform Heads Will Roll I was content with the performance of their unrefuted breakthrough hit Maps along with their first single from their latest album, Zero... Here's a funny backstage interview that I found... I've been looking EVERYWHERE for their SNL performance of Zero to post, but I have had no luck... There are a few clips of the perfomance in this lil interview though... ENJOY!

I <3 Karen Orzolek!

I don't wanna grow up (c) Toys R Us Commercials

So I love adult cartoons, I get the best of both worlds; the innocence of animation coupled with the undertones of vulgarity... It's just great! And that is why I am looking forward to Sit Down, Shut Up. It premieres on Fox on April 19th at 8:30pm joining the likes of The Simpsons and Family Guy... Wanna know the best part? The show was set up my MITCH HURWITZ! For those of you that don't know he is the creator of Arrested Development, a show that you must familiarize yourself with at ONCE if you have no clue what I'm talking about. A few of the cast members of Arrested Development will be voicing the characters of Sit Down, Shut Up and I am VERY excited about that. Arrested Development has somewhat of a cult following... Check out the cast of Sit Down, Shut Up below as they play on the pressure of having to live up to the amazingness that was Arrested Development...

So it's a rainy day in the Lou... and I decided to post a song that correlated with the weather...

Song Title: I Don't Know
Artist: Beastie Boys
It's really hard to believe this is the Beastie Boys upon first listen... It's so mellow, and that's why I love it!

Rain or shine I will be at THE GRAMOPHONE FOR THE FALL OUT tonight at 8pm, all the cool kids are going... Well, perhaps on second thought, I should not be in attendance if that is the criteria... Nonsense, I'll BE THERE and YOU SHOULD TOO!

"I think Chia pets should be left to animals"

Mr. Pedott earns this weeks infamous (perhaps not so infamous) IWP not because the chia Obama is particularly racist or offensive... But just because it is one of the STUPIDEST things that I have ever seen...

Tough break nigga... There's always FUBU (c) Commentators at the Race Draft on Chappelle Show


Well unless you were under a rock or are lacking in your kicks knowledge then you should know that today the first pair of the long awaited Air Yeezy's are being released (the ones in the middle for the few that are still clueless as to what I'm talking about). While I do like them... I do NOT like them $215 worth, plus they don't carry midget sizes :-/. However, I might have to get those May releases, something about the Black/Pink does it for me.

Want to hear about some of the MADNESS in Chicago..?. click HERE for the article on the shoe release. Poor Terrill Tucker for missing out after driving to the Go all the way from Michigan... I'm sure there were a LOT of Terrill Tuckers out there today...

MORE! MORE! MORE! How do ya like it? How do ya like it? (c) Andrea True

It has been confirmed.... May 28, 2010 is when we will all be graced with Sex and the City 2. Now, I must admit that I am a Sex and the City fan... As you saw on my "25 Random Things About Me" post... (if you haven't CLICK HERE) I have been watching the show since the 8th grade. However even I realize that there comes a time when things must end, and I'm okay with that. The show was great, the movie was pretty good (aside from Jennifer Hudson's slave like character... "Ms. Bradshaw can i's a shines ya shoes and fixes up yo's life for ya?") Perhaps I read too into the character because she was from St. Louis, as am I and females from the Lou tend to get a bad wrap. Anyway, I will see this movie, because I am a fan... so I suppose I am one of the reasons this shall continue... Once the money stops, the show spin-offs will stop... On second thought, perhaps I'll just cop a bootleg.

Senator Jack Hatch

This Iowa Senator told Representative Ako Abdul-Samad that legislators were treating them both like niggers. Yup, you read right... Mr. Hatch thought that he was "down" enough to throw the good 'ole n-word around in the presence of another African-American. He later apologized saying that he was angry after House leaders in a closed-door meeting decided to remove pieces from a health care bill without telling them. I find it interesting that this gentleman THINKS he knows what being treated like a nigger feels like... Seeing as though he has been privileged pretty much his entire life... You think you know Mr. Hatch, but you have NO IDEA! Bold ain't he?
