Gustav Can Kiss My....

Almost on the anniversary of Katrina, Gustav, at Cat 5, is passing over Cuba.

In remembrance of that event, and to bring some context to this one, a houston chronicle citizen-blogger reposts this from a last year.

As to reiterate my view of the subject,
don't pop sh!t about what should've been done,
what you would've done,

until you've actually faced having to do it.

Because I need it

and because today's the day:



How far women's athetics have come

From the 2000 Sydney-lympics

(video, one expletive - low vol/earphone rules apply)

'tis a shame that I've had to wait 8 years to come to know this guy.

Ever-mounting are the travesties of existence...



I remember back when I used to think Kool-Aid(tm) tasted


(that was then)

maybe I'm not ok...

am I allowed to still dig the roots, but remain unconcerned with the Sol-angel?

I can tell it's been ten years, 'cuz the chillun's taste is definitely taking over.

alas, the good ol days..

Me and Raw Oysters

My response to somebody trying to convince me that I should try these extra special oysters that are going to be at said person's extra special party.

"It's a dead water snail in a rock."

I find that hilarious.

I think it flows better w/o "water", but I like specificity.

(no the flow/water thing wasn't intentional)

Tyra's Cranium

I often reference the undue and possibly extra-terrestrial nature of the size of Ms. Banks' forehead. I just want to take this opportunity to say how wrong I've been to do so.

Without proof.

(let the suspense build, or skip ahead to about 1:15)

My apologies.

{you're right. that's not her voice. cookie for you}

More proof

that I must be getting old (qualitative):

not only did I just sit through a Brak episode that wasn't this one,

I found it funny.


Vivien Thomas

It seems I neglected to mention him.

Of particular interest because he was born near part of my ancestral geography.

(peculiar for me that where he was born was so remote as to be referred to as "near" LP)

There is a movie based around some of his work, Something the Lord Made.

I find at least a hair overwrought in tone, though not oppressive by any means.

(I really liked much of what Mos Def was doing in it)

Do it. Now.

Flying Dream

earlier today,

I was flying small jet that looked like a miniature F-22 (with 2+2 seating),

couldn't figure out how to control speed,

couldn't land


Certainly it couldn't had anything to do with watching this.

Carnal desires

I have a powerful hankerin' for some beef ribs.

Dang shame I po'.

Did I mention I'm po'?

No, I mean more than the usual.

Paid rent w/cc,

though the plan is to pay that back once my promo check comes.

Cellphone? Insurance? Next month's CC?

No clue.

I desperately hope something regular develops soon.

But I digress.



I might have to make that happen.

I wonder how many you get for meat theft in New York State......(?)

And while I'm again not sleeping

Radiohead - All I Need

Chopp - School Is In (outside VPND#25, I have no idea where to get this)

Gordon Gartrell Radio

I've not listened to a lick of it yet.

I recommend strictly on the name alone.

And, Phonte 'nem be on'nere.

And because it is in general keeping with my general policy of legally dl'ing all my new music for free.

I'm broke. No joke. Eating's going to be an adventure for a while.

Somebody please tell Bob Costas

that Carmelo has cornrows, not (modified dreadlocks).

If, I'm wrong, please englighten.

With proof.

P.S.: the US team uni's are blah. I hate the caps.

(another note to Bob and Matt: try Kangol or button cap, not a beret. They were all just being cute wearing it slightly to the side)

AND very, very not good.

so much so that it apparently cost us the Tony Clifton Story.

60's Soul, 10 years Removed

and British

whatever happened to that former army dude that all the morning news shows were trying their damndest to make the next Sam Cooke?
