Throwback Thursday: "Runnin' (Dying to Live)" -- Tupac ft. Notorious B.I.G.

When this track was released in 2002, with a remastered production by Eminem, it was already eight years-old. The sampled interviews with Big and Pac are haunting, as their words hang in the air like condemnations of the tragedies they preceded.

Life Imitates Art

The latest edition of Key & Peele's All-Star Game sketch is the realest yet.


Oh Mia

Best way to get heard? Name a song after the hottest chick in porn, and then sit back as she YouTubes herself twerking to it. Mia doesn't have much booty, but she knows how to shake what she's got.

Monday Kickstart: Don't Sleep on Barry O.

Our president is the best of both worlds: a classy statesman, and an out-and-out gangsta on the mic.



That's as close as you may ever see a sitting president come to saying, "Shut the fuck up" as we will ever get. You're a stone cold gangsta, Barry O.

As inspiring as it is to see a president who doesn't let the childish members of the GOP mess with his flow, I think we need a little more inspiration to kick this workweek off right. So, for that I'll hand the mic to Ms. Catherine Elizabeth:


Let's go.

Standing Tall

The world needs more Brad Knudsons, and fewer Deron Puros.

From Global Grind:
A Minnesota father took a stand against both bullying and racism when he took to YouTube to expose the students taunting his adopted African-American daughter.

In the heartbreaking video above, Brad Knudson explains that his daughter’s friend came to the family to inform them that twins at her Prior Lake school were sending Dierdra racist Snapchat videos. Knudson and his wife recorded the Snapchats from their phone — in the shot videos, the twins can be heard calling Dierdra a n****r and a fat bitch.

Knudson, who adopted Dierdra 11 years ago, says the family has “dealt with a little bit of racism, you know, stares, things like that when she calls us Mom or Dad,” but blew it off because “it was directed toward us.” But the videos were too much for the family — Knudson, who said he loves Dierdra more than his own life, decided to take a stand against racism and bullying because a close friend of theirs lost their 13-year-old son to bullying not long ago.

This guy Puro is pure scum, and yet another sterling example of why you should be required by law to get a license before being allowed to be a parent. Brad Knudson, though? He's the gold standard, and would never have to renew his license. He's good for life.



It's the Weekend

Time to get ahead...

Tuesday Kicktart: Wedge Your Bets

Concerts are a good time. Music's pumping. People are drunk/high and happy. It's almost euphoric. But don't let that euphoria go to your head. Because if you fuck around and try to do something you're not supposed to do—like, say, climb over a security fence—karma's going to get all up in your ass.



I don't know what she was climbing over the fence to reach, but I hope it was worth walking around with torn shorts the rest of the day. And probably a torn ass crack, too.

This week's inspiration is the hot-as-fire Eden Levine:

Out of Thin Air

...okay, I'm going to need someone to explain this one to me.



Was that faked? If not...what the fuuucckkkk??

The Worst

Penn State disgusts me. The NCAA disgusts me. The naive-at-best people I encounter on a daily basis who try to defend Joe Paterno disgust me. If there's truly justice in this universe, "JoePa" is burning in purgatory for his crimes against children, whose lives were ruined while he turned a blind eye in the name of achieving a record.

Stand and Deliver: Mike Bobrinskoy

This is brilliant.

From Huffington Post:
You're bound to come across some questionable individuals while online dating: the suave gents on OkCupid who bombard you with genitalia-filled DMs, for instance, or the Tinder users who group text all their matches. But the seediest of the bunch have to be the scam artists who try to con you into sending money. Yeah, not going to happen.

So how do you deal with them? Let Mike Bobrinskoy show you. In the stand-up clip above, the Chicago-based comedian recounts how he shut down an OkCupid scammer named Alexandra (the bit begins at the 1:12 mark). Alexandra claimed to be a Texas-born model with an affinity for big Italian meals "like Garfield!" and giving pleasure "in and out of the bed."


Running Script

Credit where credit's due: Despite falling hard on his ass, he never misses a beat.


Throwback Thursday: "My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It)" — En Vogue

There has never been a hotter foursome of women with booming vocals. Sorry. Destiny's Child wishes they were Terry, Dawn, Cindy, and Maxine. A whole slew of 90s girl groups tried to walk in the footsteps of their stilettos, but groups such as DC, Xscape, 702, and Allure, never realistically had a chance. All four members of En Vogue were strong, classy, adult women who had voices as beautiful as their faces, and their formula was lightning-in-a-bottle that the music industry has been failing over and over to catch again over the past 20 years.

Tail Report: Michelle Jenneke for WSHH

I'm not entirely sure what this is all about. I don't really care, of course. But I just felt like being honest, on the off chance good behavior will bring me any closer to making Miss Jenneke a future ex-Mrs. Defi.



Good looks by TJ with the assist. (He'll be my best man.)

Respect My Gangsta: Jeremy Renner

Jeremy's cold. So cold.

Monday Kickstart: How Low?

If there's one thing the internet has taught us, it's that there are people being dicks in every country, not just our own.

From Tastefully Offensive:
Erik Solbakken and Hasse Hope from the Norwegian comedy show Karl Johan convinced strangers passing by to limbo under a stick while blindfolded. Then when the limboing began the pranksters dashed off, leaving the limboers alone to foolishly walk around like drunk zombies.



And this is why you never let someone blindfold you in public. Notice, though, that all of those bystanders didn't help out either. They just let the prank victims go on believing they were limboing. Not a single "Hey, you're being punked." Dickishness is human nature.

I think on a Monday morning, you need to laugh at someone else's embarrassment. I also think you need to gaze at the beautiful Ms. Rae on a Monday morning—or any other day of the week:

Throwback Thursday: "Mo Money Mo Problems" -- Notorious B.I.G. ft. Puff Daddy & Mase

There was a good five year period where I couldn't hang out at a frat party without hearing this song playing. Still a great track, simply for accomplishing the rare feat of being both strong lyrically (...for like 2/3 of it, at least) and a huge mainstream hit.

(And yes, I called him "Puff Daddy." This is a throwback post, after all.)

Dropping by Unannounced


Bruh.

From Yahoo! News:
Firefighters in Southern California responded to an unusual call over the weekend at the home of a man who awoke to find his ex-girlfriend naked and stuck inside the fireplace.

According to Riverside County officials, the 35-year-old woman, who was not identified, tried to enter the Woodcrest, Calif., home where her ex-boyfriend and three children live through the front door early Saturday morning, but it was locked. So she climbed on the roof, stripped off her clothes and tried to shimmy down the chimney.

BRUH.

I feel you, though man. The crazy ones are like a drug. Or on drugs. He lives there with his three—count 'em, one, two, THREE—kids, and she's trying to break in. Naked.

...bruh.

Greetings and Salutations.

Y'all know how it be.
