Hudson Family Tragedy

Lifestyle
Wow. Just really fucking wow is all I can say to the recent tragedies that have happened to Jennifer Hudson. The loss of a mother, brother and nephew are tragic in solitude and combined together is a recipe for extreme disaster. If she's never heard from again its understandable but still tragic because despite it all people would love to see her succeed. Especially for her lost loved ones. There has been so much talk about how she should have known to get out the hood once she got a little fame and fortune but so many are shunned upon for doing just that. Why should money equal a move to the burbs? She should uproot her family because she got fame now. And fame doesn't alwyas equal riches. I'm…

Time to give it up: A memo for strippers!

Lifestyle
So, this weekend me and my friends hit the strip club.  And we went to a strip club where girls strip because: 1. Drinks are cheap. 2. Things get really raunchy at the other kind (or so I've heard) 3.  Drinks are cheap. Now, if you are in strip club and your sitting there at the bar or around the "stage" you should tip.  It's only fair.  For those that don't go to strip clubs often I guess you don't know how the work. Well, the ones I've been to usually work this way: Girl dances around or on the pole depending on her skill set.  After she's done there she makes her way around the bar/floor and gets her tips.  It isn't like on StripTease where Demi Moore got…

Vacuum + Penis = ???

Lifestyle
Ok, so I've decided to start a Things that make you go hmm category for things like this.  It's neither a rant or a rave and not quite a GTFOH, lol. More stories will be moved to this category eventually or I may just do a from this date forward kinda thing.  Either way, on with the story. A Michigan man decided that he wanted a blow job from a vacuum the other day at the car wash.  I guess regular human suction just wasn't quite enough, he had to go for that industrial strength.  How do you receive sexual favors from a vacuum? That's how the police reported it.  What do you charge him with? Public indecency? Sexual deviancy? How do you say you're going to jail for fucking…

Hope for Hoes!!

Lifestyle
There is hope for porn stars everywhere. Sasha Grey is an inspiration to all them hoes out there-she parlayed her fucking on screen to playing a high priced call girl in REAL MOVIE! She fucked her way to the top! Her role is realllly going to focus on her acting skills. I mean, I can see how that is so far fetched for her, instead of traditional oohs and ahhs that a porn actress has to deliver, she's going to have to TALK! I wonder if she can form real words. I'm not really a fan of white girls in porn, I'm actually pretty particular about the porn I watch, so I've never seen any of her movies, which include Bitchcraft 4, Totally Fucked 2, Flower's Squirt Shower 5, Grand…

Even Split

Lifestyle
No, your eyes are not deceiving you. That there is only half of a house.  One day, this could be you! I've had this story on my radar over the past several days and I'm just getting around to writing about it.  This couple from Cambodia literally split their house in half after the dissemination of their 18 year marriage.  The husband decided that he would saw off his half of the house and move it to another portion of the land.  The land, which they divided into four equal parts, one for the wife, one for him, and two others for their children.  Aw, how wonderful, don't leave the kiddies out.  Now right, I know that houses are built differently than they are in the US, but how the…

Feeding my addiction

Lifestyle
Go DL Hughley! On my mornings new stroll came across this article about CNN giving DL Hughley his own show, some would compare to the Colbert Report or the Daily Show. As you all know, I am a CNN junkie. I watch all the debates on CNN, I catch their morning show, American Morning, I like Larry King even though he's ancient. I love how he makes people slightly uncomfortable in his interviews, LOL. Anywho, Variety reports that the Show will air Saturdays at 10pm and then again on Sunday in the same news slot. Its predicted that they are gearing to appeal to a younger audience as the elections have bought news to a forefront among the new generation. I think, sometimes, that DL boarders the lines between slightly…

Delve a little deeper??

Lifestyle
Ok, so I hijacked the questions from over at SheenV's place.. He does Wednesday Weirdness, and I liked these questions... I might hijack a few more, he just doesn't know it yet! IF you haven't, check him out over there in the blogroll.. its cool stuff! And he loves shoes too!!! LOL Once again, Thanks!!! 1.) Do you think you're approachable? Absolutely! But people might disagree.  If I don't know people in a crowd I tend to stay to myself until the ice is broken.  Some might take that as unapproachable, but to me its just normal behavior.  Often times people say I'm just "acting light-skin" LOL 2.) Out of the two, would you rather be able to predict things before they happened or be able to read minds whenever…

Review: Shoe Addicts Anonymous

Fashionable, Lifestyle
I picked up this book in the train station, Shoe Addicts Anonymous, because I was done reading my current book on the ride to the city.  If I had one word to describe this book it would be... FLUFF! I'm an avid fiction reader, but sometimes fiction still makes you think and ponder the possibilities.  There was none of that here for me.  It was an easy read.  I bought it on Monday evening, was done Saturday night and didn't even read some every day.  The gist of the story is that there are four people who have a club dedicated to swapping shoes.  The idea started with Lorna, who is so deep in credit card debt that she needs to consolidate.  She works as a waitress and lives in…

Battle of the Divas! Jennifer Hudson vs. Jazmine Sullivan

Battle of the Divas! Jennifer Hudson vs. Jazmine Sullivan

Lifestyle
I don't know about some people, but I was excited about Jennifer Hudson's cd being finally released.  I was not so excited about Jazmine Sullivan's cd.  Not because she can't sing, because she has skills, but because her first single didn't wow me and there was so much hype around her.  Everyone was talking about it.  I like to be the kind of person that strays from the norm.  Now, JHud, is a great singer.  Do I think she should have gotten an Oscar for singing in DreamGirls... NO.. but that's not my point.So these two albums came out pretty close together in time, and rather than write seperate reviews, I'm going to compare them. Personally, I think Jaz's album blows Hudson's out the box.. Not for vocal skills but…

Please Wait Patiently

Lifestyle
You know it really ticks me off when people come into my job and they want a specific person and only that person. We tell them this person is unavailable at the current moment and give them alternatives-do you want to see someone else or wait or even come back later. Now if you choose to wait, I will tell you I can't guarantee how long you will be waiting for. Do NOT agree to wait and then pester the first person who walks past to with your problems. It will not make the situation better by bad mouthing other employees. You choose, repeat-choose to wait an undetermined amount of time. Shit happens, get over yourself. How do things get lost you ask? Let me give you several hundred documents…

How can you write, but you don’t read?

Lifestyle
I came across this article about how 2008 was proclaimed the year of reading. In the article they said  Posh Spice (Victoria Beckham) has never read a book, but yet she writes them.  How does that really work? What about her kids? I think this occurs a lot today. Hell, we have a lot of "authors" who do not really write their own books. I mean, every time one of these "tell all" books comes out by these former video groupies, do people actually think they wrote them? No, they are more like dictations to a person they sold their story to.  Foolishness! Anyway, the article asks, does reading make you clever? Not necessarily. Reading does stimulate the cortex, and does improve things like: vocabulary grammar spelling writing comprehension reasoning…

HBO’s True Blood

Lifestyle
HBO's new series True Blood stars Anna Paquin and a few other people who i don't know, but so far its pretty good.  It's based on a series of books by Charlaine HarrisI have watched all four episodes and each one has been pleasantly surprising. My friend says that the way they use the metaphor of vampires and humans is reminiscent of blacks and whites after the Civil War with the central idea of assimilation.  She said that every time they say vampires she replaces it with the N word.  Sometimes, it really does seem interchangeable. I like the show because, well, I just like it.  I don't have a thing for vamps because I hated Buffy the Vampire Slayer so it can't be inherent.  True Blood takes place in…

Case of the Missing Peen!!

Lifestyle
"I think penises are little Napoleons that’ll try to take over the world.”- My friend the Asian This was the perfect time to use that quote! Can you imagine waking up to find your penis gone!! For the ladies, you're breasts?? Philip Seaton, 61 went in for a circumcision as part of a medical procedure in Louisville, KY and came out with his whole peen gone. That's got to be worse than the hospital in Trenton, NJ that I went to once! Remind me never to get hurt in Louisville! Anywho, he and his wife are now suing the doctors for obvious reasons, among those, "loss of enjoyment in life." I whole heartedly agree that enjoyment is gone, which is why I'd never want to hurt my mammories! This doctor…

Debate or Debacle

Lifestyle
Yesterday I read an article about the different debate approaches of Senators Barack Obama and John McCain.  I briefly read the article, wondering how the hell was this old man (McCain) going to stand a chance next to a viral man nearly, if not, 30 years his junior with a much sharper mind (Obama).  McCain graduated near the bottom of his navel class whereas Obama is Harvard educated and a much better speaker.  In the article the authors said McCain had a lackadaisical approach to this debate, not really giving it much practice while Obama was entering "debate camp." Interesting. At least to me. So with this information stored in my ever growing brain it wasn't too big of a shock to hear that McCain wants to postpone the debate…
