I’d just had a real rollercoaster of a Christmas and I wrote it down so I’d remember it forever. Of all the holidays in all of the years I’ve been on the planet, this is probably the one I will remember in most detail for the rest of my life. It’s long, but if your family is annoying you (or, you’re Jewish or something) and you have nothing to do, feel free to read it. I’m not changing a thing, but if I feel the need to add a comment as I read, I’ll bold my new thoughts.
There are lots of updates about Jordans on my feed right now.
A) I didn’t know that was still a “thing”.
C) I think brown people need some more hobbies.
E) You do realize Michael Jordan stopped being hot before some of you could spell ‘basketball’ right?
F) They really don’t even go with anything. Am I the only one who thinks sneakers look RIDICULOUS with all outfits unless you’re actually playing a sport? Why are you wearing basketball shoes and jeans? You look crazy.
Jimmy Fallon was hosting it. Is it just me, or is that the most adorable 40 year old white man in the country? I think he is precious as can be with his cute little self. And he always just seems so happy to be wherever he is. Can I be there too? We can be so happy together.
SNL was boo boo as usual. I don’t even know why I watch. I basically just cross my fingers for Stefon or Anything Amazing Involving Kristen Wiig. I was borderline amused by the Tim Tebow and Jesus skit they tacked on at the end though.
Obviously that didn’t go over so well with the Christians :-/
Forreal. I’m trying to change that mindset, but it’s still weird to see dudes cry. That’s why I was so shocked to see Olivia’s manager on Love & Hip-Hop bust out the waterworks and I was so moved!
Yo. That dude goes hard for her and she is so unappreciative. He’s spent so much time and money to get that bitch poppin and she acts all entitled and shit like there’s somebody (other than me) who thinks she’s hot. Bitch you ain’t hot! Nobody is checkin for you! You need to respect that dude and his opinions. That is a GROWN ASS BLACK MAN CRYING ON NATIONAL TELEVISION FOR YOUR WHACK ASS.
Get your life right, Olivia. Most people woulda been done dropped you way before now.
So, a few months ago, Renee paid $30,000 to get her butt done and a full body lift and she said she couldn’t wait to get naked or somethin. I sure hope these stripper-pole pics aren’t a precursor to some tragic appearance in Playboy.
More pics after the jump. And a promo video for the new season of Mob Wives, premiering January 1st!
He broke down at a concert last week to say he was taking a break from music to do a traditional, two-year mission with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. You can watch the video from TMZ…
…but really all you need to know is he’s putting his singing career on hold “not because somebody told me that I was supposed to do it, not because that I no longer want to do music anymore, but it’s because it’s the feeling that I felt that I need to do next in my life.”
I’m not saying it has anything to do with the fact that he got dropped from his record label, his last album sold seven copies, and he has nothing better to do right now. Nah, I’m not gonna say that. But what is a Mormon mission anyway?
Cloudy water, also known as white water, is caused by air bubbles in the water. It is completely harmless.
It usually happens when it is very cold outside because the solubility of air in water increases as water pressure increases and/or water temperature decreases. Cold water holds more air than warm water.
In the winter, water travels from the reservoir which is very cold and warms up during its travel to your tap. The air that is present is no longer soluble, and comes out of solution. In addition, once water from our reservoir enters the transmission and distribution pipes, the water is pressurized. Water under pressure holds more air than water that is not pressurized. Once the water comes out of your tap, the water is no longer under pressure and the air comes out of solution as bubbles (similar to a carbonated soft drink).
The best thing to do is let it sit in an open container until the bubbles naturally disappear.
If Ron Paul is a racist: Why would he oppose drug laws because they target minorities? Why would he oppose the death penalty because minorities receive it more than whites? Why would he criticize the criminal justice system for unfairly targeting minorities? Why would he oppose racial profiling at airports? Why would he reject collectivism, which necessarily implies that he rejects "white rights"? Why would he propose pardoning all minorities convicted of drug crimes? He's not racist.
Real people get real answers.
Why would he oppose drug laws because they target minorities? That’s not *why* he opposes drug laws, it just happens to be a selling point that makes him more popular with the colored vote. Ron Paul opposes drug laws because the War on Drugs is costly and ineffective. I appreciate that he’s the only politician who points this out, but that has nothing to do with race.
Why would he oppose the death penalty because minorities receive it more than whites? Again, that’s not *why* he opposes the death penalty. It’s just another convenience. Paul is personally against capital punishment because he believes no one should be put to death for a crime, but politically, he’s just against federal regulation of the death penalty and it should be left up to states, along with education and marriage.
Why would he criticize the criminal justice system for unfairly targeting minorities? Why would he oppose racial profiling at airports? Because it’s a clear fact that various politicians of all parties have pointed out at some point. Pointing out an injustice does not shine a light either way on someone’s personal views on race. During Separate But Equal, more than a few southern whites pointed out that black schools were inferior to white schools and they should be brought up to standard. But that doesn’t mean they supported integration, having black children sitting next to theirs in school.
Why would he reject collectivism, which necessarily implies that he rejects “white rights”? Saying that each person should be judged based on their individual merits, not on the collective view of their background, is not inherently non-racist. It doesn’t mean he views minorities negatively or positively. It just means that each person should be seen as an individual.
Why would he propose pardoning all minorities convicted of drug crimes? He doesn’t. He proposes pardoning all non-violent drug offenders. Regardless of race.
Here’s the thing. Two people, when confronted with the same information, can draw different conclusions based on their own life experiences. To me, I see a politician who trots out minority support when convenient. I see a man who made money for decades supporting and recommending a newsletter (which may or not have been authored by him, you can believe either way on that) with some pretty despicable comments about minorities. Not until 2001 did he finally say “oh…maybe that wasn’t the best idea.” You could say he had a change of heart. I would say that he was being put on a larger stage and being held up to more criticism and needed to distance himself from budding controversy. But for the record, while he hasn’t admitted to writing them, he has said he must take responsibility for it because his name is all over it.
And I don’t know any pro-racial-equality candidates who would ever in their right mind accept campaign donations from the Grand Wizard of the KKK. It’s not as if he doesn’t know where the money is coming from. He can say whatever he wants on the campaign trail, but actions speak louder than words. And he’s got some shady actions.
This is the same guy that tried to bet Rick Perry $10,000 over a trivial point in a debate. He’s also worth $190-250 million dollars. He’s totally the perfect guy to say what will and won’t hurt the poor.
I can’t even describe the feeling. Depression? Jealousy? Confusion? Whatever it is, it’s because Ekaterina Rybolovlev just broke the record for the most money ever spent per square foot of real estate in NYC: $13,000 per square foot.
Former Citigroup chairman Sandy Weill listed his 6,744-sq-ft apartment at 15 Central Park West for an astonishing $88 million in November, promising to donate the proceeds of the sale to charity.
Now comes news that Ekaterina Rybolovleva, the 22-year-old daughter of Russian billionaire Dmitriy Rybolovlev, is buying the condominium. Rybolovleva is currently studying at an undisclosed U.S. university and plans to stay in the apartment when visiting New York. According to a source familiar with the sale, she paid the full asking price of $88 million setting a record for highest individual transaction in New York City history. (cont.)
So you are going to say Paul is racist because of a dumbass supporter or because he is from Texas? Oh no, he's friends with a racist. I guess it'd be bad if someone was friends with a terrorist. Oh wait, the current President is. Guess that makes the President a terrorist.
And I don’t mean Old Broad, Expecting. Even though that’s true.
She got honored last week as an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. I mean, good for her. She looks really happy.
I’m just super salty because she let that fine ass Aaron Johnson do that to himself. He went from this…
to that. Aren’t cougars supposed to keep their prey all sexed up and desirable so everyone else will be jealous? Because I’m not jealous anymore. She ain’t doin it right. Either fix him up proper or give him back to the nursery. But don’t let him just walk around looking all types of wrong and confused.
Some of these kids don’t have basic hygiene skills. Teaching a person to shower at the age of 12 or 14 sounds strange to some people, but people who work with troubled youth will tell you there are a lot of juvenile delinquents and people who are dependent who have to be taught basic life skills like how to put soap on their body.
Major Tom is a fictional astronaut created by David Bowie and makes up the theme of his 1969 album Space Oddity. In the early 80s, German new-wave rocker Peter Schilling wrote this song about Major Tom being caught in space. Both the German and English versions were pretty sizable hits in various countries and tons of artists from Shiny Toy Guns to William Shatner have remade the song. But this version is by far my favorite.
…’Did you just make love? Or just want to check where people near you made love?’ says the app. ‘I just made love lets you do all that and more!’
The Android - and now iPhone - app lets you record where, when and even in what position you ‘made love’ - and then upload it to an online database - with your comments. (cont.)
Alright, this is just…………………………………………….No.
I hope this doesn’t become like Facebook check-ins. If I browse my feed and see ‘I Just Made Love at 410 E 72nd St, Doggystyle, and I rated it a 4!’ I will throw myself off the George Washington Bridge.
(and you know only the ugly/awkward people will download it, so that we know they in-fact do have sex)
So let's talk about Republicans and this Keystone XL legislation.
I don’t make videos. I’m too awkward and I’d rather blog about it. But I read an article about some fresh legislation and I wanted to make a quick video about it before I run out to dinner while it’s still on my mind. I got a little heated toward the end (oops) but I cut it off before I got out of hand and started cussing at the Internets.
Sorry about the rambling. This is why I am not a teacher. The kids would just be dizzy and confused.
Monkey Rides Dog, and Overshadows Madonna's Halftime Anticipation
^^That is an actual headline from this article. I didn’t change a word.
What planet do these people live on? NOTHING OVERSHADOWS MADONNA’S HALFTIME ANTICIPATION! Are you kidding me? GTFO. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200. You must be on some shit, throwing unnecessary shade at Queen Madge. I’m not gonna even dignify those people and talk about that non-story, but I know one thing…lalate.com better stop talkin out the side of they mouth all crazy before they hafta get dealt with.
SHUT THE FRONT DOOR! I didn’t know they were making new music?!?!
I don’t know if this is as good as I think it is because I’m just so excited to hear them. But I am forreal jamming like Shaniqua at a block party right now. Coko is still sanging, you guys. I mean, 20 years later, and she is really doing the damn thing. And I love how this sounds so much like “I’m So Into You” without being a retread.
I’ma listen to it some more this week and decide if it’s worthy of all this praise I just heaped on it.
