- "Delays" So, Returnof4eva got pushed back till Monday. It's all good I guess. I have enough good new music to get through before K.R.I.T. takes over my rotation.
- "Nate Dogg"
It might not be new, but this DJ Premier-mixed tribute is a solid half hour of classics and little-known cuts. Via TSS. RIP to the Hook King.
- "Nike" CFO Dan Blair just announced that pretty much everything Nike will cost more during the next fiscal year or so. Why? Because "the rising cost of cotton, oil and transportation will squeeze profit margins.".........You're kidding me right? They've been selling $12 shoes for $150 since Do The Right Thing came out, and you want me to listen to complaints about profit margins? Good god. It honestly doesn't even matter; Nikes are as elastic as gas. People will pay whatever for 'em.
- "Fuckery" This is actually a pretty sad story; one guy's life is pretty much over, and countless people were prevented from trying the new Pacific Shrimp Taco. An unnamed suspect walked into a Taco Bell in San Antonio, Texas and ordered seven (!!!) Beefy Crunch Burritos. Now, we all know that Beefy Crunch Burritos are the shit b/c they are 99 cents. Well, on this fateful day in San Antonio, Taco Bell upped the ante. To $1.49. For our hungry anti-hero, this was the end of the line. I can only imagine what was going through his head when his total came to $10.50 instead of $7. The would-be Tex-Mex martyr then proceeded to bust an air gun at the cashier, and then let off his other air-powered rifle at the cops when they hit the scene. Nobody got hurt, but dude is facing two felony counts of aggravated assault against a public servant (and countless prison gang rapes). Can't wait to get to Texas. **Aside** Definitely, definitely didn't think this one was on us. C'mon bruh.
- "Sensitivity" Some lady for The Atlanta Post wrote some ol' bull about something called "Anti-Street Harassment Day". As a man, I'll never fully be able to understand what it's like to be a beautiful woman walking down the street and getting hollered and stared at every day from the time she hits 16 till the day she hits 35. I won't. But this chick lumps in craziness like mass-groping at NYC's Puerto Rican Day parade or a gang rape in Texas (#losing, again) with simple cat-calling or looks. That shit is wrong. Smacking a stranger's ass or bugging a chick for her number until she sprays you down like a roach is harassment. Looking at a beautiful woman in public, or even manning up enough to strike up conversation and ask for her number, is not. Ladies, if you have cleavage out or have been blessed with a nice ass, there are people who are gonna look. Sure, you bought those leggings because they are warm and fit you well. I get that. Everything has unintended consequences though. Word to Kamau.
