Hello, McFly.

Since you’re here..

Somehow it’s been decided that tonight’s entry will include the 10 blogs I’ve checked most recently.  Here they are, from most to least recent.  I wonder what this says about me.

Lakers Nation.  Three more.

Ill Doctrine.  Jay Smooth is so great at Debo-ing folks with his words.

What Claudia Wore.  Hilarious, if you were ever an avid BSC fan.

2dopeboyz.  The gold standard when it comes to hip hop bloggery.

The Hundreds.  Anytime I’m starting to feel way too cool, I check Bobby’s blog and it helps to knock me back down a few notches.

Disgrasian.  Calling folks out, all the time.

Shannon Hori.  My cousin is a CBS anchorwoman and an awesome mom.

Nailstah.  My girl Annie has a lot of time on her hands.  Meanwhile I own 2 bottles, total.

Foreign Family. My big brother Mr. 44 lets me live vicariously through his blog.

Science Blog.  It’s exactly what it sounds like, and I love it.

Whew, I finally have time to post this..

ESPN did an OTL feature on the history of Santa Anita park, as it was used as a site for holding Japanese Americans during World War II before they were sent to internment camps.

Go [HERE] to watch the video.

Look at him, he loves it. Just like it says in the encyclopedia.

After a recent discussion, I found out that almost none of my friends have seen the KFC commercials that have been airing for the past few months.  How are these things still on the air?

If you don’t have time to watch the video, here’s a summary:

-Normal White people, eating chicken.

-Normal Black people, eating chicken.

-Asian people in Karate outfits, eating chicken.

Am I really the only one seeing this?  Just.. why?

My friend’s cousin was tasered to death by the police.

I’m a little late on posting this, because I was so disgusted/nauseated by the whole thing that I couldn’t even bring myself to do more than post a link to the article on Twitter.  But yeah.. people need to hear about this.  The part I hate the most is how NOT shocked I end up feeling when it comes to stories of young Black males and police brutality.  Ugh.

Police, witness accounts of Taser death differ


Published May 19, 2009

LA MARQUE — Police say a Texas City man who died after being shot with a Taser stun gun fought with officers as they tried to arrest him late Sunday night.

But a resident who called police to the scene said the man was seeking medical help for a possible heart attack and didn’t appear to pose any threat to officers.

Miley noooooo!

Sigh.  Hannah Montana just lost a bit of her magic, in my eyes.  No pun intended.

Adriel Luis breaks it down..

You’d think, at the very least, she’d avoid these kinds of pictures after the whole Team Spain thing during the Olympics.  Fail.  I’m officially boycotting all Miley Cyrus concerts.  Not that I ever went to them before (I’m sure I’d get trampled by tweens on the way to buying a ticket.. they’re so scary!!)

A couple winners from her ‘apology’:

“I’ve also been told there are some people upset about some pictures taken of me with friends making goofy faces! Well, Im sorry if those people looked at those pics and took them wrong and out of context.”

In NO way was I making fun of any ethnicity! I was simply making a goofy face. When did that become newsworthy … It seems someone is trying to make something out of nothing to me … I definitely feel like the press is trying to make me out as the new ‘BAD GIRL’”

“I feel like now that Britney is back on top of her game again, they need someone to pick on! Lucky me.”

C’mon, Disney.  Apparently, we’re not past this.

Two words: Integration fail.
