Quitting is the New Black

Two working class heroes have emerged this week; Steven Slater and Elyse Porterfield.

Steven Slater, is was a Jet Blue flight attendant. Slater approached some hag who was attempting to remove her luggage from the carry on compartment before the plane came to a complete stop. The passenger refused to listen to Slater and her luggage “accidentally” hit Slater in the face. Afer that, Slater got on the microphone and went on an Continue reading

They Raping Errrbody

Rape is not funny and if someone crawled through my window I would be freaking terrified.

So, I kept seeing on twitter and facebook people writing, ‎”hide your kids, hide your wife, and hide your husband cuz they rapin’ everybody out here!”. I just figured it was a lyric from a Rick Ross song or something since it took me about a month to figure out what people were talking about when they said, “I’m Big Meech, Larry Hoover.” Don’t blame me; I don’t listen to the radio. Anyways, after a car ride with some friends I was introduced to the greatness that is Antoine Dodson. Antoine is like a bootleg Lafeyette. True Blood.‎ Basically, Antoine saved his sister from an intruder after a man crawled through her window and tried to rape her. Here is the original video from a Huntsville, Alabama news station.

Hide your husbands? LMAO.

Now, that you have seen the original, watch the Antoine Dodson auto-tune remixed song, “Huntsville Rapist Bed Intruder Song”. I love everything about the song. The beat, the auto-tune, the way it was edited, the random White boys. Love, love, love. And it’s actually pretty catchy.

Again, rape is not funny in any way but Antoine Dodson definitely is. Antoine is the latest internet sensation and the “Huntsville Rapist Bed Intruder Song” has almost 700,000 views on YouTube!

Is King James Miami’s Savior?

We all know by now that Lebron James decided to join the Heat and play basketball in South Beach. As someone who is not a sports fan my first thoughts were, “Oh crap, more tourists and traffic!” and ” Oh crap, now airplane ticket prices to Miami are going to increase”.

However, Alfred Spellman, producer of “The-U” and cult-classic “Cocaine Cowboys” , appeared on Bloomberg Television and he had a more positive view. He believes that King James will “unite Miami and lead the city to a Renaissance”.

During his appearance he mentions the economic blows that Miami has faced including the housing market crash, unemployment of 12%, 100,000 foreclosures in 2009 and the oil spill in the Gulf.  Spellman believes that Lebron will bring in tourist dollars and help revitalize Miami’s downtown area.

I loved the fact that Spellman addresses Lebron stating that he is coming to play ball in South Beach which is a misnomer because he will actually be playing at the American Airlines Arena in Downtown Miami. But he said South Beach so we all know what’s really on his mind. Prince side eye.

I really do hope that Lebron revitalizes the Miami economy and that will mean more coins in MY pocket and not just increased prices for products, tickets and houses, while wages remain the same. @KidFury ( a guy I follow on twitter) summed it up best when he twatted, “If Lebron James coming to Miami causes more traffic, higher club covers and cost of hot wings to increase and/or more groupie attacks… I WILL leave. Lebron, you are free to have your fun, but keep that ish cute. I was here first”. chuckles.
