I live in a constant state of early 90s.
When college rock was good, and black people were still on TV.



SLTA___
     Terminal cancer patient threatened with jailtime for mentioning illness at marijuana trial.

Benton Mackenzie has a very rare, very aggressive form of cancer and before reading anything else about his case, Google-image “Benton Mackenzie” or look through the pictures on the Facebook page set up by his supporters.  They are very graphic, but a quick glimpse is necessary.

He and his family are on trial for drug-related charges in Iowa, and Mackenzie is not allowed to use his illness as part of his defense even though that is the reason why he grows marijuana in his parents’ home.  Iowa has legalized cannabis oil for epilepsy sufferers so clearly medical marijuana has some precedent, but Mackenzie isn’t allowed to mention his illness because we’re still fighting this ridiculous war on drugs that nobody can win.

     will.i.am is trying to defend Britney’s non-autotune leak as just a warm-up.

OK but.  Not being warmed up doesn’t have anything to do with your ears.  Britney is flat.  She can’t hear.  No amount of herbal tea is going to fix that.  No amount of warm-ups, vocalizations, run-throughs with the lyrics, prayer, offerings to Santeria, or burnt animal sacrifices is going to make Britney Spears sound good without autotune.

BUT WE KNOW THAT ALREADY, so why y’all trippin?

Edit:  It’s William Orbit, not will.i.am.  How did I put will.i.am up there?  Ooof.  This is going to be a LONG day, I can already tell.  Lemme put on some autotuned Britney and get my mind right.

     Avocado pops with chocolate.

Avocado pops with chocolate.

AVOCADO pops.  With chocolate.  Y’all need to quit.  That’s not a treat.  That’s a punishment.  That’s how you get back at your kids for drawing on the walls or throwing a bag of flour all over the living room.  You give them an “ice cream pop” that’s really avocado and watch them lose their trust in humanity forever.  This is evil and ridiculous.  Why do y’all do this to yourselves?  Why doesn’t anybody love themselves anymore? What’s wrong with ice cream?

     Mom who abandoned baby at Columbus Circle “really needs help.”

Frankea Dabbs, 20, was riding the 1 train with her 7-month-old daughter yesterday and left the child on the train platform at Columbus Circle.  Dabbs continued riding the train, abandoning her daughter in one of NYC’s busiest subway stations.

I can’t defend what she did, but I do want to go out on a limb and assume she probably did what she thought was best.  Given Dabbs’ circumstances, leaving a baby unharmed in full view of passersby isn’t the worst that could’ve happened to her daughter.

Midday Toni Braxton Break:  ”Another Sad Love Song”

So…I’m the only Black person in this office and the only homosexual so I’m not sure how Toni Braxton got put on the playlist (between seventeen repeats of “Let It Goooooooooooooooo” sending me into a murderous rage).  This is the third Toni song I’ve heard at work today, the other two being “He Wasn’t Man Enough” and “Breathe Again,” so the universe is obviously trying to distract me from the fact that it’s hell plus five outside and I want to melt / cry / punch something.

Everybody who comes into the office is damn near steaming.  Like.  Heat just wafting off of their clothes.  Every delivery guy, bless his soul, is smelling like roast meats and looking like death, so thank god for air conditioning and air fresheners.  I don’t know what I would do if I had an Outside Job.   Probably just die.  Every day, die and come back to life.  And cry in between.

     Solange’s first non-statement on Elevator Smackdown ‘14.

Solange Knowles graces the cover of the August issue of Lucky Magazine and speaks out for the first time about the infamous elevator brawl with Jay Z. Solange downplays the incident saying in Lucky Magazine:

"What’s important is that my family and I are all good.. What we had to say collectively was in the statement that we put out, and we all feel at peace with that.."

(source)

That’s really the only way to respond and I’m sure Beyonce's tight-lipped demeanor toward the press has something to do with it.

     Crumbs Bake Shop finally crumbled yesterday.

Crumbs Bakery, America’s most successful (and overrated) cupcake chain, immediately ceased all operations and closed its 48 stores at the end of business yesterday.

With six-hours notice before being out of a job, I feel bad for the employees, but Crumbs needed to shut down or change years ago.
