Lebron: The New Kanye

Posted by and1grad on November 30, 2010

On September 13, 2009, during the MTV VMAs, Kanye West jumped on stage, interrupting Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech. He proceeded to tell the crowd, and essentially the world, that Beyonce should have won. He ended this drunken ramble (brown liquor STAYS causing bad decisions) with the now famous Kanye Shrug, grabbed his lady, and drunkenly left the event. This comedy of errors, while hilarious, brought Kanye a tsunami of negative media attention…dwarfing that of entertainers that were being accused of actual crimes or other more harmful acts. I mean…you woulda thought the guy was OJ Simpson. Read the rest of this entry »

Quotables

Posted by and1grad on October 9, 2009

There’s been talk of Rush Limbaugh being part of a group that owns a football team. For your viewing pleasure, here are some quotes* that should serve notice to people about Rush Limbaugh.

“They’re 12 percent of the population. Who the hell cares?”

“Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons.”

“Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?”

“You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray. We miss you, James. Godspeed.”

“I mean, let’s face it, we didn’t have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing; Quite the opposite: slavery built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back, I’m just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark.”

Fool’s Gold

Posted by and1grad on September 25, 2008

EVERY time I hear a quote from one of our numerous black athletes, I cringe. Not because what they say is so commonly stupid, but that the way they say it is stupid. The most recent quote I heard/read was from Stephon Marbury. He said, concerning his potential release from the Knicks, “There wouldnt be no negotiation…” I know its nitpicky but this shit drives me crazy. Why cant our athletes at least give the impression that they’re intelligent? Hell, lie to us. I dont care. Just dont make me think that you’re a fool with money. This is one of the things I love about Kobe. He ALWAYS sounds intelligent. He didnt even GO to college and he sounds twice as smart as some of these ballplayers that SUPPOSEDLY did. Shameful.

Oh, and then there’s this Josh Howard, of the Dallas Mavericks, character. He seems to aspire to perfect sounding like an absolute fool. Said something about not taking part in the national anthem because he’s black. Really? Who thinks that? And better yet, who actually SAYS it? They say a fool and his money are soon parted. But clowns like these remind me of when Dave Chappelle was doing his Rick James impersonation and said “They shoulda never gave you niggas money!!”

I didnt mean it

Posted by and1grad on July 24, 2008


Now that I finally got my bike back (’06 Kawasaki 750s), I’ve been feelin myself a lil too much on there. Just this morning I shot the gap (thats what I call lane-splitting) through about 12 cars on the street and then blasted past them all when the light turned green. I know I must’ve scared the shit outta somebody when I did that. Whoops. I didnt mean it…well, maybe a lil bit.
