Barackin' The Q

CLEVELAND — NBA superstar LeBron James and Grammy-winning recording artist Jay-Z want people to get out early to vote for Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama.

James and Jay-Z will host a rally Wednesday at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland which will include a free concert by the hip-hop star.

James attended a Cleveland rally earlier this month to encourage people to vote for Obama. He's also contributed $20,000 to a committee supporting the presidential nominee.
Looks like Franklin will be ducking out of the office tomorrow to pick up a ticket.

I can honestly say, It has been a while since I've been this hyped for a flick.

I'm about 1/4 through the graphic novel and it's hella dope.

The last shot alone gives me a semi.

I'm an idiot and I get my news from Sean Hannity.

Cleveland area blog bloggerinterrupted took some cringeworthy video at a McCain/Palin event in this area.*

* The campaign event was held in Strongsville, a suburb of Cleveland. If you know anything about the Cleveland area, there has been a long-standing geographic racial divide (easing up a little recently) between the East and West Side of the city and her suburbs. Strongsville is about as "west side" as you get.


I also came across this one today. This is from a McCain/Palin rally in Bethlehem, PA.

This could get ugly. It's one thing to paint your opponent as a wine-sipping, latte-drinking, wind-surfing frenchman. It's something a lot more sinister to paint his as a Terrorist-sympathising, america-hating radical-muslim Mancurian candidate.

Now I'm starting to worry a lil' bit.

My Daily Reminders for the Office

  • When saying words that end in 'ing' ... say the 'g.'
  • When listening to hip-hop, always use the headphones.
  • Don't look angry, even when you're fuckin' angry.
  • When greeting clients, don't say "wuddup?"
  • When greeting clients, don't say "howdy!" either. There's no need to compensate.
  • Don't allow Black panhandlers to guilt you into giving them money because you're walking with your white coworkers. Give them money because you want to... or don't.
  • You've gone this far without playing drinking games. Don't start now.
  • You are in no way inferior because you didn't travel to Europe before, during or immediately after college.
  • Save the CB4, Fear of a Black Hat, Major Payne, Last Dragon, Dolemite, Malcom X, School Daze and Hollywood Shuffle references for another time. They won't get them. Even if you find the clip on YouTube and e-mail it to them.


I guess these have been around for a while, but they're new to me.
