Gov. Blagojevich FAIL

save me
Our governor got nabbed by the Feds this morning. I can't say I didn't see this coming, but I didn't think the FBI would run up on him like they were reenacting the lyrics to "Ante Up." A lot of the details are still forthcoming, but still, there are a few points that I'd like to clarify...

People. Stop talking about corrupt Chicago politicians when referencing this corruption scandal. Blagojevich is the governor of the entire state of IL. Not the governor of the city of Chicago. Such a position does not exist.

I'm not saying Chicago ISN'T corrupt but um...you should know the difference between a mayor, a senator and a governor, as well as the reach of their jurisdiction.

And for once, Mayor Daley isn't implicated in this particular corruption scandal (as far as we know, for now) because he did NOT get along with Blagojevich. Obama was not implicated in any way shape or form either. They knew better.

That's all I got. I'm sure piccolouno  will come up behind me and point out anything that I've missed, or where I'm erroneous in my assertions, but yeah. I know it's highly inappropriate, but this shit has been cracking me up all day. You can't make this up. You just cant.



Git It Shawty! Single Ladies Edition

The Humble Beginning: dancing your ass off in a tiny bedroom to "Single Ladies" by Beyonce...



Next Stop: dancing your ass off in front of a green screen and a live studio audience on The Bonnie Hunt show, 1,000,000+ YouTube views later:

 
Love him, but it kinda makes you think: I have seen more gay men straight NAIL the choreography to this song, it's getting to the point where it's a little...surreal. It's almost like if you're a woman and you think you want to practice real hard so you can do your own YouTube video of you dancing to "Single Ladies" - DON'T. There's a gay man out there who can do it 10x better than you and he'll probably get a job somewhere because of it.

I'm not hating, I'm just sayin'...

Timothy: Welcome home - for good this time! See you @ the Roots + Cee-lo show @ The Vic on Thursday

Rodney:
Stay strong, stay vigilant out there in the desert - I know it's rough. Please don't kill any of your fellow Marines, even if some of them DO think "nigger" is the appropriate way to address a fellow soldier >_< I don't know how the mail service is out there in Iraq, but there's a package w/ your name on it coming soon.

David: See you when you're done w/ tech training! Enjoy sunny, warm FL while you're still down there, cuz you already know it's some bullshit happening w/ the weather up here this time of year. (Psssst...take a detour to Miami before you come home & bring me back an Adam Rodriquez-esque Cuban man plz :)

Marcus: Not even living in the desert w/ spotty wi-fi can stop your musical genius. I don't know where you're drawing your inspiration from, but what I've been hearing is some of your best stuff ever. We talked about why you didn't want one, but the offer for the care package still stands.
 
Forever grateful to the ones who fought and praying for the safe return of those who are still fighting. But for real, let's dead the wars...

*looks around* SECURITY!

Srsly??

Von Pea's response:
"we got gunz too! and not from no gun store! the whole brownsville is gonna be outside the white house 24/7 starting 1/1/09"

...yeah, it might be time to call Louis Farrakhan and recruit a few Fruit of Islam guards:


He's definitely going to be needing a set-up like this every time he speaks out in the open:




*sigh*

In closing, I will let President Obama say a few reassuring words for the constituency:

I got footage of his speech, but it surpasses the upload limit for the week so I'll  have to do it next Thursday when it resets. That night was so surreal - all of this is. Definitely one of the best nights of my life.



"Obamapalooza" in Grant Park

obama
FINALLY! Here are my personal photos from the now infamous Election Night rally at Grant Park in Downtown Chicago dubbed by many as "Obamapalooza." They start off showing the crowds that were gathering in the early afternoon around 2 PM and ends with the deluge of people leaving the gathering around 11:30 PM:

Next up: Videos brought to you by Vimeo.

Today's Anthem

obama
(Chorus):
Talk shit now (now…now…now…) What? What?
Talk shit now (now…now…now…) What?
Talk shit now (now…now…now…) What?
Talk shit now (now…now…now…) What?
Talk shit now (now…now…now…)

Say something, say something (what was that?)
Say something (I dare you), say something...
