I know it's been a while, but you can still make me smile...
Being that this blog is the place of intelligence and sophistication, how about examining the semantics of conflict - have a look at the Guardian's exploration of creative destruction vs. total war.

or if that's too serious for you, there is always news from the onion....

otherwise, it's nice to be stopping by to say hi :)

I work for America's most admired company. This according to Fortune magazine. It's the first time Wal-Mart's ever received this designation and Lee Scott, the CEO pictured at left, was pretty excited about it in a note to the entire team (1.4MM strong).

Richard Cheese & Lounge Against The Machine. It's one of those ideas I wish I'd thought of. I'm cheesy, I have a half decent voice, I like popular songs.

I can't give too may details but a very reliable source has told me that Steve Jobs and Dr. Dre had dinner together on Tuesday night. Those that know why I know this will hear the story soon. You heard it here first folks.

What I dig about this

What I dig about this video is the song itself (Chali 2na and Akil from J5) as well as the breakdancing and pop-lock dance sequences. The fact that the dancers are dressed in huge cartoon animal costumes is pure gravy.

Saddam Enrages Bush With Full

Saddam Enrages Bush With Full Compliance
WASHINGTON, DC—President Bush expressed frustration
and anger Monday over a U.N. report stating that Iraqi
president Saddam Hussein is now fully complying with
weapons inspections. "Enough is enough," a determined
Bush told reporters. "We are not fooled by Saddam's
devious attempts to sway world opinion by doing
everything the U.N. asked him to do. We will not be
intimidated into backing down and, if we have any say
in the matter, neither will Saddam." Bush added that
any further Iraqi attempt to meet the demands of the
U.N. or U.S. will be regarded as "an act of war."

Not sure where it originated but thanks to Shastri for forwarding it to me inline.

I thought I was being overly careful whenever I'd cut my old credit cards up and dump the pieces in disparate bins throughout the house. I dunno, maybe some dude would rummage through my garbage and carefuly pice together the shards of plastic and have at it with my $75.00 in available credit. Well naysayers be quieted, I'm not the only kook in tha hizouse. These privacy tips do go above and beyond but there are some nuggets in here too. [Huh huh, I said nuggets]

?love [quest-love], from The Roots,

?love [quest-love], from The Roots, is among my favorite album producers for any type of music let alone hip-hop. I've seen The Roots a total of 5 times since the first time at the Cattle Club in Sacramento in 1994. Since then they've grown on me like few other bands. Listening to them live one is transported to the early days of hip-hop where a cardboard sensibility ruled over any would-be notions of violent grandeur. Most amazing is ?loves ability to recreate any sampled beat you can imagine. Yeah, that's right. Doug E. Fresh? Got it. The Bridge Is Over? Got it. Apache? Got it. Off the hook. Yeah that's right, they play live instruments...and well. Check out ?'s eloquent diatribe on Freshhhhh Air (can't you just say it normally Terry?).

"He is please so much by raising his hands."

Didja know that emoticons are culturally relevant? Yeah, there's a whole slew of 'em used in Japan (and believe me, they use 'em more than we do) that we don't have here. Coolest is that they're oriented horizontally rather than vertically. That means no more tilting your head to discern what homie wants to convey to you.

I just wasted a little too much time on this one (thanks Prof. Newman). It reminds me of another fun one.
I'd like to bring it down a little now and ask a more serious [not really] question:What would Jesus Drive?.

Picasso's Guernica is an important piece historically speaking. It's eerily ironic that the U.N. is choosing to cover it up, even if temporarily.
