This night job is making sure I don’t see any NBA games during the week unless I’m working an actual game. Damn I wanted to see Lakers/Rockets. Ron and Kobe go way back. Check the interview. As far as work? Got to make the donuts so it’s chillllll. Can’t stop, won’t stop.

7 links for today.

Ron Ron gets lit up by Beans (L.A. Times)

Texas Tech’s Mike Singletary goes off for 43 in early Big 12 action–including 29 straight. Epic. (Houston Chronicle)

USA loses to Venezuela in Group C finale (

Shoe thrower gets three years? (Al Jazerra)

Why the poor stay poor (NY Times)

Google goes phone (BBC News)

Hip Hop Chess? (NBC Bay Area)

Had to include this as well because I saw it live. Republicans crack me up trying to deflect blame for the economic downturn. How much did we spend a month in the war? Get over yourselves and take the blame so we can all move on. 2012 is a long way way so stop trying to position for the takeover because you blew it when you had the chance. Ari Fleischer snaps back at Chris Matthews below. It was hilarious when Chris paused and said “What?” I laughed real loud.

Happy Birthday!

My Mother’s would have been tomorrow. R.I.P Mom. I have a lot of friends, associates, relatives…yeah even ex loves and likes whose birthday is this month. There were a whole lotta lotta people gettin’ down when the sun made it hot I guess. There’s one friend in particular who helped me get through my knucklehead stage when I needed it the most. Happy Birthday Jacquie. Just remember this: Even though I bombed Mr. Yanitis’ Chemistry class after all that tutoring you gave those afternoons in the library, I turned out alright. Thanks for everything. The Prince concert rocking the Dwayne Waynes and paisley shirts, drives all around the PA country side bangin’ Cameo and Miles. You had a serious impact on my life and the total fruit is yet to be determined. God bless you and your beautiful family.

Thanks as well goes to the Abstract for tipping me off to this following classic. Hit me up brothaman. Gotta get you on this mic.
