Drawing the Line

Filed in Everwhatever

Like Ambra, who breaks it down beautifully, I’m more of a pragmatic conservative than an ideological one. My politics is probably actually more like the way I play baseball: I field left but swing right. So when it comes to issues of race, I can almost always “feel” where the activist is coming from, to [...]

Movin’ On Up

Filed in Everwhatever

Come On Down! (c) Johnny Olsen, Rod Roddy, & Flavor Flav This will be my last day of using the blogger platform. As I mentioned last week…or whenever that was….*shrugs* I’m moving to my own spot. Stereo will still be there, looking quite different, but there will also be some other goodies and treats. Still [...]

It takes a man to take a stand understand, it takes a woman to make a stronger man (as we both get strong) – Chuck and Flav Last time I talked a little bit about misogynistic lyrics in hip-hop. One thing I intended to do, and either was not clear on, or simply failed to [...]

Whas’nEVER I Play, It’s Got To Be FUNKY – When A Bad Jawn Walks In

Filed in Everwhatever

Today’s list is a bunch of songs that I think would make good background music for a good-looking woman to walk in the door. In some cases, it’s based on the title and/or words in the song, i.e. it would be really ironic if she walked in while this song was playing. In other cases, [...]

Put out some rough stuff today. To cool it off for the night time, I thought I’d take it down a notch. This is something I saw the first day I started blogging. I did a cut and paste and put it into Word, so I don’t know where I got it. It’s hot, though. [...]

Filed in Everwhatever

“They get mad when I put it in perspective but let’s see if my knowledge is effective” – Ice Cube Misogyny is one of those words like “racism” that has a nebulous, broadly understood meaning, but is much more slippery when it comes time to actually grab it. There are lots of things we can [...]

Go Team USA!

Since when is it American to root against Americans in the Olympics? Jason Whitlock has an answer. Keep this up, y’all gon’ make me tell you why people really hate Allen [...]
