Listen to her on Barbara Walters’ Sirius show. Poor Paula. HSN, here she comes!

Update: Here was the beginning of her Vicodin tour on The View, which preceded the above.

Apparently, The Bible Doesn’t Like Anyone…

I just don’t get it anymore (well, that’s neither here nor there) – I mean, I don’t comprehend religious justifications about anything these days. 

Case In Point – Watch this video and tell me what you think

Be forewarned that it’s odd, extensively offensive, requires a semi long attention span, and displays some crazy people who for all you know could sit next to your cubicle on the daily.

Keep an eye out for the look on the face of the innocent bystander lady with a Dasani water bottle who has to cross through the mob about 5 1/2 mins into the protest mob display of aggression in NYC.  Classic!

Common’s UMC May Induce Kitchen Dancing!!!

Main Entry:  1van·i·ty
Pronunciation: \ˈva-nə-tē\
Function:   noun

1. Kitchen dancing to your own album
2. A small case or handbag for toilet articles used by women

Actually, I’m glad to know that I’m not the only one who still has a Soul Train line that includes the stove!!!
————————————————————-

In other Common related news….  Today, CNN released a few thoughts from MR. UMC in regards to the future of hip hop and the impact of Barack Obama:

“I think hip-hop artists will have no choice but to talk about different things and more positive things, and try to bring a brighter side to that because, even before Barack, I think people had been tired of hearing the same thing,”.

Coldplay to Satriani: “You Wish!”

Kind of old news here, but the response from Coldplay is rather new.

Here’s the skinny: Joe Satriani, a rock guy, tried to talk with Coldplay about what he felt was a bit too close of a similarity between his “If I Can Fly” and Coldplay’s “La Vida Loca”. Oh wait, I mean “Vida La Vida”. Anyway, he says they wouldn’t respond so he filed suit. To which Coldplay responded: 

“Fuck you, who are you anyway?” OK, I made that up, here’s their real response:

“If there are any similarities between our two pieces of music, they are entirely coincidental, and just as surprising to us as to him,” the band says in a statement. 

“Joe Satriani is a great musician, but he did not write the song ‘Viva La Vida.’ We respectfully ask him to accept our assurances of this and wish him well with all future endeavors.”

What do you think? Exhibit A below.

Traffic Update: Panties & Prophets

I just knew today was going to be a rough commute!panties jesus1

Honolulu: 8 boxes of Gap panties fell off a delivery truck and were all over the highway.  What’s the big deal; can we say “I completed all my regift shopping early this year”?

Orlando: Jesus statues are blocking an intersection and causing all kinds of fuss for commuters.  Honestly, the last thing I need when I don’t use my blinker, slow-n-roll, and violate someone else’s right of way is Ceramic Jesus there watching me. 

All that makes me think that I’m just going to call out tomorrow and play hookie!

The Bible and Gay Marriage

bibleLet’s try for a minute to take the religious conservatives at their word and define marriage as the Bible does. Shall we look to Abraham, the great patriarch, who slept with his servant when he discovered his beloved wife Sarah was infertile? Or to Jacob, who fathered children with four different women (two sisters and their servants)? Abraham, Jacob, David, Solomon and the kings of Judah and Israel—all these fathers and heroes were polygamists. The New Testament model of marriage is hardly better. Jesus himself was single and preached an indifference to earthly attachments—especially family. The apostle Paul (also single) regarded marriage as an act of last resort for those unable to contain their animal lust. “It is better to marry than to burn with passion,” says the apostle, in one of the most lukewarm endorsements of a treasured institution ever uttered. Would any contemporary heterosexual married couple—who likely woke up on their wedding day harboring some optimistic and newfangled ideas about gender equality and romantic love—turn to the Bible as a how-to script?

Of course not, yet the religious opponents of gay marriage would have it be so. Read more of the insightful Newsweek article here.
