HoustonSoReal: Well, Maybe this is why more rappers don't speak out on the issues... They Want Scion Money!

HoustonSoReal: Well, Maybe this is why more rappers don't speak out on the issues... They Want Scion Money!:

"Bavu Blakes received an affidavit stating that he was in the Top Ten – chosen by DJ Premier, Green Lantern and Sean Cane, and that voting would commence, online, Monday August 29th on the website

Today, he received a call, again from Jay Cortez, stating that he had been removed from the contest because of the political lyrics in his song “Black Gold.” The lyrics in question are:

1. 'Now Bush and bin Laden got so much they rotten'
2. 'Texas home of the real death row'
3. 'What'd we really go to Iraq fo?'"

Subdivided We Stand: I Read Leviticus So You Don't Have To

Subdivided We Stand: I Read Leviticus So You Don't Have To:

"But hey -- who has time to sit around and read Leviticus these days?

That's where I come in. I want to help you, my red state friends, in your mission of becoming even more judgemental. So from time to time over the next few weeks, I'm going to read and summarize Leviticus for you. By the end of all this, you'll know just who's an abomination, who you should smite, who's unclean, etc. Think of all the new folks you'll be able to seethe about!"

Mike Sterling's Progressive Ruin

Mike Sterling's Progressive Ruin:
"'Shame about what happened to Wonder Woman's team,' Spider-Man said sadly. The offices of the Daily Planet, usually bustling with busy reporters, was now a makeshift command center in the battle against the unknown forces that threatened the planet.

'There will be time to mourn later,' noted Shrinking Violet. 'We must think of something to do right now.'

'What she said,' chimed in Kojak. 'Supes and that other guy can only hold out for so long. We're licked if we can't come up with a pl....'

Suddenly a door slammed open, startling everyone. The Black Knight drew his sword. Frodo instinctively pawed for his ring, only to be stopped by Samwise. Jesus reached for his lightsaber.

A figure stood in the doorway, tall with flowing hair, features obscured by shadow.

Firestorm whispered 'that...that can't be who I think it is, can it? I thought he was just a myth!'

'Oh, I'm much more than a myth,' said the mysterious figure. 'I'm also...your only hope.'"

and it get's funnier.

AP Wire | 09/06/2005 | Bob Denver, TV's Gilligan, dead at 70

AP Wire | 09/06/2005 | Bob Denver, TV's Gilligan, dead at 70:
"As Krebs, Denver's only desire was to play the bongos and hang out at coffee houses, and he would shriek every time the word 'work' was mentioned."

Discovering Maynard G. Krebs on The Many Love of Dobie Gillis on Nick at Nite was like discovering my archetype, or a fun house mirror, or something...
While he was not the first slacker, and only a parody of a beat, he stands as a shining example to all of us who only want to play bongos and hang out at coffee houses,
and grow goatees,
and not work.

It wasn't too long ago he was busted for marijuana possession (Denver, not Krebs)...

I light this one for you Maynard,
you will be missed.

Click opera - September 3rd, 2005

Berlin's a pretty tolerant town, but whenever I wear my white Moroccan robe (and the weather this week has been Moroccan in Berlin) I get the strangest reactions. Something doesn't compute. The wild looks you see here all tend to follow fairly rigid patterns. The industrial goths wear long black leather skirts, for instance, but you can always tell what tribe they're part of. But a white man dressed as a Muslim... what tribe is that? Whose side is he on? What's he playing at? Is this the start of some trend we'd have to call something like "Fashion Muslim"?

While I'm much more of a "nothing's gonna change my clothes ever anymore" kinda guy now I still appreciate fashion freaks...
Back in Jr. High I was all about Hawaiian shirts, and then in High School I was some silly new wave/goth/punk/poseur...
Sophomore year I was easily they gayest little straight boy.
Hair permed in the front.
A broach.
Polo shirt.
Trench coat.
Beatle boots.
Plaid pants.

Now I'm mostly a jeans and t-shirt guy.
Cowboy boots.
Occasionally Overalls...

although a nice white robe does sound comfy.

Fw: [CTRL] People STILL dying trapped in New Orleans

-Caveat Lector- < >

From the livejournal blog of someone working inside a datacenter still operational in downtown New Orleans :

First of all, many thanks to the kind and courageous folks currently staffing Outpost Crystal. Their compassion and honesty are unparalleled.

I am writing this to describe a horrific situation in NOLA that few are aware of, and those who are aware are doing little or nothing. As many of you have likely observed, the national media outlets are suggesting that hurricane relief is finally leading to vast improvements with each hour that passes. Food and water are being delivered, power restored, levees repaired, water drainage plans developed, and those still living successfully evacuated. Many are reporting that the final areas are being checked for survivors, as well as those who have passed at the hands of Katrina (and more often, neglect). Unfortunately, this is not the case. As demonstrated on's blog section, many individuals know the exact locations and WORKING telephone numbers of family members, most of whom are elderly, sickly, starving, and in serious need of medical attention. When able to get through on emergency telephone numbers, a feat not to be taken lightly, they are dismissed or told that dispatch would be sent immediately, yet no one has come, even though calls have been placed for days. Many do not require full evacuation, but basic medical attention and/or supplies. Many are completely immobile, and unable to access the limited relief sites or food drops. I spoke to one such individual, Ms. Lee Livermore, who was still trapped in her home earlier this evening (around 6:00pm EST).

Her nephew, living in Michigan, explained to me that she is diabetic, has difficulty moving, and he has been in contact with the coast guard, emergency services, and even the governor's office, yet nothing is being done. Stranded on a 3rd floor apartment, with little food, no sweets, and low blood sugar, her outlook is not promising. This is just one case out of hundreds, probably thousands. Incredibly, much of this information is available through, a resource many of the media are utilizing, yet remains unreported. The television broadcasts refer to none of this, simply stressing the importance of financial contributions, encouraging National Guard membership for potential volunteers, and emphasizing the positive direction the situation is headed.

For more information on these people who are stranded and requiring immediate assistance, please visit
Note: specific contact information and locations ARE provided

Some of these people, primarily those in high profile areas, such as universities and hospitals, have since been rescued. Others, however, are being ignored, even though their situation and status is easily discernable and their telephone contacts are reliable and consistent.
