I Read Something... April 7

From the looks of this poster, Tropic Thunder could be quite a film costarring Black, Ben Stiller, and Robert Downey Jr in some kind of war related comedy. It has to be better than the Larry The Cable Guy classic Delta Farce, a film that received a collective rating of 3% critical approval at Rotten Tomatoes. According to Wikipedia, Larry The Cable Guy blamed the film's bad business on being released against Spiderman 3 and Shrek the Third. Ya think so Larry?


Devo is touring this summer. I'm going to see them in a pool. (Brooklyn Vegan)


DMX's thoughts on Obama in XXL Magazine via The Bad and The Ugly:

"Are you following the presidential race?
Not at all.

You’re not? You know there’s a Black guy running, Barack Obama and then there’s Hillary Clinton.
His name is Barack?!

Barack Obama, yeah.

What the fuck is a Barack?! Barack Obama. Where he from, Africa?

Yeah, his dad is from Kenya.
Barack Obama?

What the fuck?! That ain’t no fuckin’ name, yo. That ain’t that nigga’s name. You can’t be serious. Barack Obama. Get the fuck outta here.

You’re telling me you haven’t heard about him before.
I ain’t really paying much attention.

I mean, it’s pretty big if a Black…
Wow, Barack! The nigga’s name is Barack. Barack? Nigga named Barack Obama. What the fuck, man?! Is he serious? That ain’t his fuckin’ name. Ima tell this nigga when I see him, “Stop that bullshit. Stop that bullshit” [laughs] “That ain’t your fuckin’ name.” Your momma ain’t name you no damn Barack.

So you’re not following the race. You can’t vote right?
