Rolling spice like a joint? Fucktard.
Just plain wow...I thought I had seen some ghetto shit in my day, but this had to have broken into my top five.
While it is irritating enough that my upstairs neighbors liking dropping shit through and usually over my balcony, the idea they drop a couple of roaches isn't particularly surprising. But when they drop roaches of that spice/incense/hot hippie garbage nonsense, that's a bit much.
Just found out we will be without children in the apartment this evening...nice...maybe the girlfriend will get on top tonight. Wish me luck. Wish me even more luck she doesn't read this and beat my ass.
Well now, it seems that the ratings for Charlie Sheen's return to television might be falling faster to Earth than, well...Charlie Sheen. Anger Management, airing on FX, recently experienced a forty percent drop in the ratings from the debut week, losing about two million viewers down to 3.3 million.
Could be worse. I mean, we are talking about the FX network here. Still though, while the first season has a guaranteed ten episode run, there is reportedly a 90 episode deal with distributor Debmar-Mercury hanging in the wings waiting to see how this pans out. Personally, I kind of dig the show. Sheen has a bit of a better backstory this time around, and a little bit better cast in the long run. Yeah, say what you want about whatever the hell that kid's name is, and Jon Cryer had his moments with a one-note character, but this show seems to pull the best aspects Sheen was working with on Two and a Half Men, and puts it together with something with a bit more teeth.
Yeah, I said there was more teeth to a role of a skirt-chasing therapist than that of a skirt-chasing jingle writer. Sue me. Just check this out on the off-hand chance it survives to a second season, and to see if Selma Blair's character will ever whip out the sweater meat in a meaningful way, by which I mean the audience (by which I mean me) can enjoy. FACE THE DAMN CAMERA, ALREADY!
So, five-time Olympic champion Michael Johnson, now a BBC analyst for the 2012 London games, said "...difficult as it was to hear, slavery has benefited descendants like me- I believe there is a superior athletic gene in us."
Damn. I did notice Johnson apparently waited to make a remark like that to a British publication (The Daily Mail) while working for a British media outlet. Johnson was at least mindful of the fact that if he had done this working in American media, he'd already be out on his ass. Either that, or Jimmy the Greek was a little before his time.
It does make me wonder if Johnson is just angling for a little extra relevance during the Olympiad, or if he actually thinks this way. To say slavery benefited anyone not at the handle end of a whip is the worst kind of attempt to make a point, any point, especially from someone who lives a far better standard than the vast majority of slaves. I'm sure they would have loved that word, benefit.
