- "The ISM"
GLC is a good dude. I only met him once thanks to my FSD gig, but he's a memorable guy. Hilarious. Here's a little 101 for those of you unbeknownst to that ISM. I can vouch for the fact that GL actually talks like this too. Via Andrew.
- "Fuckery" A teacher in Arlington, Texas got charged with five counts of "having an inappropriate relationship between a student and teacher" yesterday. Not only is this an actual crime in Texas, but it's a felony. "Inappropriate relationship". If a judge read that to me in a court I wouldn't know whether to laugh or cry. Probably cry because I was gonna become a part of the system. The poor lady caught the charges for having sex with five of her high school students. They were all 18, but this is Texas and in Texas everything except buying a gun is a felony. I don't blame the kids, though. If I found out one of my teachers was down for a train I'd probably hop on board too.
- "Sugar Ray" The Leonard variety. The former champ has a book coming out that details his sexual abuse at age 15 by a "prominent Olympic boxing coach". Takes a lot of courage to put that out on paper, so I commend Leonard for that. Hopefully other people who've been molested will draw from that strength. Maybe even seek help if they feel that's necessary. Via NYT.
- "Blu" New music from Blu is always welcome here. I won't call it a mixtape or EP or anything like that. Just good music. Hit the pic for your free download. Props TSS.
- "Miami" This story made my day. Luther Campbell aka Uncle Luke formerly of 2 Live Crew is running for mayor of Miami. If I could vote, I'd vote for him on the strength of this album cover alone. He might actually make Miami a habitable place again after outlawing Ugg boots, v-necks, and indoor sunglasses wearing.
