A Quickie

I’m tired, but I’ve read some good stuff.

As always, I love it when the NYT reviews rap albums. Here are excerpts from a review of the latest Luda jam:

“Ludacris can’t get no respect. Last year, on the remix to DJ Khaled’s ‘I’m So Hood,’ he issued a meta-protest: ‘I’m so hood that Ludacris shoulda been on the original version.’ A clever line, sure, but also an honest gripe. One of the most nimble, stylistically versatile and creative rappers of the last decade, Ludacris remains conspicuously underappreciated. His propensities for comedy and vocal histrionics don’t much help; he often appears to be trying too hard…

…Last week he attracted a swarm of attention for ‘Politics as Usual,’ an incendiary political song on the mixtape. (Perhaps Senator Barack Obama’s campaign has been paying closer attention to the mixtape circuit since DJ Drama began calling himself Barack O’Drama.)”

I love word games on facebook just as much as the next 20-something word nerd, but I didn’t realize how ridiculous things had become until I read this article.

Parents forget their daughter at the airport, but remember their duty-free purchases. Wait, wasn’t this a movie?

In presidential politics today, this happened.

From Lauren; amazing Al Franken!

Oh, and the economy is in the toilet. Metaphorically speaking.

If you’re mean to me, I’m going to have Hannah Montana call you in the morning.
