In my reality Kanye West is an incredibly crazy person. Exhibit A is his latest “song.” Is it just me or did he make in bad on purpose?
I can’t speak to what goes on in Kanye’s reality. And I wouldn’t want to know, either.
When Grammy award winning producer/rapper Kanye West released the video for his song “Bound 2” off of his “Yeezus” album it was met with a lot of controversy.
The video shows West on a motorcycle riding thru the mountains while being straddled by his fiancee a half naked Kim Kardashian. Many people have basically called the video CHEEZY.
But here’s where the fun comes in actors and all around FUN DUDES James France & Seth Rogen decide to recreate the video in its ENTIRETY. Words cannot express it, you have to see this HILARIOUS ISH for yourself and look at the BROMANCE that ensues.
I’m behind on writing original content due to the holidays hubbub so here’s a random blast from the past. I feel it really holds up. I’m proud of myself.
I’m not afraid to admit it. I voted for Barack Obama.
Am I especially proud of it? Naw. It was just a vote. I don’t want to be contrary to the greater wisdom being spun by the Bitchers. (Hey look, shiny new lingo.) They are frothing at the mouth to paint my vote as so much more. It was just a vote. And guess what? I’d even do it again.
Have I lost faith with Obama? No. I’d still vote for him again. Most likely I’ll vote for him in 2012. Do I agree with everything he’s done? No. But more than any mistakes or weaknesses in Obama, I cry foul of the extra loud devicive voices. Yes, for people who used to label critics “traitors” and say that questioning the president was “treason,” all of the sudden those same people feel that dissent is the new cool.

Remember learning about history in K-12? I don’t remember much but when it comes to the first Thanksgiving a few images do come to mind. The following paragraph is pieced together relying solely on my recollections.
The Pilgrims and the Native Americans came together for a feast. The Pilgrims wore funny brown hats topped with a column adorned with a belt buckle. There was maize. There was jellied cranberry sauce featuring distinctive rings from an aluminum can. There was even pumpkin pie. There was a horn of plenty that provided a veritable cornucopia of magical fresh fruits and vegetables. And, of course, last but not least, there was turkey aplenty that looked a lot like simple outline drawings of my hand.
Have you ever experienced that moment when you realized history class left a lot of things out? It was decidedly not the place to go if you wanted the big picture. Or an unvarnished viewpoint free of bias that didn’t accentuate a certain narrative. No doubt there were time constraints or contractual obligations?
My exhaustive (you’ll get this pun after the jump) research turned up something else that was given to the Pilgrims. It wasn’t on the dinner table, perhaps, but I’m sure it was still something to be very thankful for.

I think I’m going to take up interviewing as a hobby, even though I’m happy working at home as my own boss. At least it’ll give me something to blog about and who knows? Maybe I can cash in on one of those lawsuit thingies.
I received an email today about how to handle illegal interview questions. According to the email (always a very reliable source) the questions below are are “illegal.”
Of course, what is “illegal” in a job interviewing type of situation? I think it goes without saying that one person’s “illegal” is another person’s “get yer ass out the door because you won’t be working here!”
Right on. People abusing other people. You know, now that I think about it, they ought to base an economic system on that.
According to the advice in this unsolicited email there are three ways you can go when responding to an illegal question during an employment interview:
- Answer honestly if you want.
- Tell the interviewer their question is illegal thus blowing any chance you had at the job.
- “Base your answer on the requirements of the job and your ability to perform it.” (Whatever…
