Observations & Rants

You know the state of the music is bad all around when there’s shock and uproar over a Grammy being awarded to an actual musician over a tween idol.  While I’m at it, memo to so-called Justin Bieber fans: Death threats?  Really?  Do you really want to take it there?  Take it from someone who has six sisters – you DO NOT want to mess with Black fans and as the day is long, you DO NOT want to mess with the sistas!

A little birdy slipped me some early mixes of ‘Meltdown’, the forthcoming – and long awaited – EP by Pillow Theory.  I’m calling it now – this is going to knock people really, really hard on their behinds.  I’m already excited!

As if they didn’t learn their lessons of the failures of Miami Vice, The Mod Squad, I Spy, etc, casting is underway now for a 21 Jump Street movie with Ice Cube playing the role made famous by Steven Williams.  What’s next – a film adaptation of The Secret Diaries of Demond Pfeiffer?  There has to be some original ideas and stories out there.  Please!

For those who are ready to polish the World Series trophy for the Phillies or the Red Sox, remember the 2008 Detroit Tigers.  In the buildup to that year, they traded for Edgar Renteria, Dontrelle Willis and Miguel Cabrera to a team that was just a year removed from going to The World Series.  Didn’t happen for them.  You still have to play the games.

Can winter end, like, immediately?  I need some warmth!

I love who every program that actually helps people or moves us forward as a nation is now a ‘job killer’.   Let’s not even start about the new war on the unions, pension plans, health insurance and any of the very few benefits every day working stiffs gained through collective bargaining.

Yet no one has anything about the real job killers: Outsourcing and unchecked corporate greed.

No one even talks about the war(s) anymore and how its bleeding the economy morally and financially.

Just saying….
