NFL Week 13

Filed in Sports

I didn’t watch the Eagles on Thursday night, but I worried about them a little bit. I shouldn’t have. They crushed the Cardinals. But that’s a big part of what frustrates me about them. They’re totally schizophrenic. If the offense shows up, the defense stinks. When the defense plays well, there’s no offense. If you [...]

Post-Thanksgiving Post

Filed in Everwhatever

Having had a couple days to think about it, I think I wanna do organize my list of beauties around the underrated theme. That is, there are certain names that are almost guaranteed to come up in a discussion of all-time beautiful Black women. We all know who they are, and my goal is to [...]

Thanksgiving Post

Filed in Everwhatever

Around this time of year, one of the common memes is a list of things for which to be thankful. I could do that too, but I’m thinking a little bigger than that. Specifically, I’m back to thinking about the difference in ideological mindsets. One of my homeboys likes to challenge me on the degree [...]

Test Time

Filed in Politics

I took the Civil Literacy Civics Quiz which has been getting a lot of attention because of how many people have failed it. I’m surprised to report that I got a 90.91%. Let’s round up and call it a 91. That’s B+/A- territory. I’m not really surprised at the score, I’m surprised by which questions [...]

The dude, Blackink done put an idea in my head. He don’t appreciate RZA’s mic skills too much and estimated that he’d fall into the bottom 3rd of any breakdown of the Wu. That, of course, got me wondering what the full breakdown would look like. Let’s here The engine and caboose are easy. That’s [...]

Rolling Stone Top 100 Singers

Filed in Music

The whole list is here. I really can’t comment on 100 singers, partially because that takes way more time than I have. Second, because I don’t listen to that much of every kind of music. My tastes are eclectic, and I have representatives of most genres in my collection, but I don’t know enough about, [...]

Got Hope?

Filed in Everwhatever

Of the insane number of expectations that have been foisted upon President-elect Obama, one of the ones he didn’t self-create is the idea that his presidency will somehow open the eyes of the lost and allow them to believe that they, too, can achieve anything if they would only put their minds to it. Charles [...]
