Fifty-six points. Looks like a Madden score. The AFCE is definitely wide open. Without New England to Big Brother the whole division, it seems that anybody can come up. Chiefs got their first win, riding Larry Johnson’s back. I’m not sure if they’d been getting away from him, or if Denver forgot he was there, [...]
I still say this song should never be re-recorded. Ever. But I’m mindin my own business when I see a Canadian choir givin it a run. But not from T-Dot or somewhere Anglo-Canadian. Naw, son. From Quebec. If you heard somethin, that was me fallin out my chair.
I might complain about some of the ramifications of our increasingly high levels of media access, but without it, I would never know stuff like this existed. Long live youtube. Here’s the one for what may be my favorite P-Funk album of all.
White Officer FIRED For Assaulting Black Teen You really hafta watch the video to get the full flavor, but in a nutshell, a white deputy, who had stopped a young Black dude because his pants were sagging, chopped the brother in the throat and tried to say he did it because the brother attempted to [...]
I think we’re within a few presidential election cycles of having elections as a reality show. We’re halfway there now. The talk surrounding the candidates is almost as much about their persons, personalities, or personal lives, as it is about their actual position on the issues.

Some students enjoy school and want to be there. Some students don’t particularly like the academics, but they like the social and/or athletic [...]
3:45 The Redskins could be some trouble. 9:30 I don’t know if I’ve been underestimating them or what, but I didn’t think the Eagles defense had it in em to be THAT physical. They actually beat up on Pittsburgh. Not that the Stillers ain’t get they licks back, but if anything, I would have expected [...]
No way I was gonna write this over again. From November, 2004. Jesus Can Work It Out (JCWIO) by the Cosmopolitan Church of Prayer Choir represents the last of the great bluesy gospel songs. Most contemporary gospel music seems to be oriented differently. Musically, it’s based on synthesizers with horn punches (sometimes synthesized, sometimes real) [...]
