Further Random Thoughts
By Tia

I’ve had a request from one of the IT guys at work. He would like to have a section of the blog dedicated to “white IT guys in Tennessee like us.” UMMMMM….Yeah

Is anyone else sick of Ashton Kutcher? I don’t know if it’s just me or if it’s a general consensus. But there is just something about the kid that bothers me. Maybe it’s because he hangs with the grand wizard of hip-hop, Sean Combs or maybe it’s just who he is in general. He’s never done anything to me personally but for some reason I just don’t care for him.

Whatever you do, you MUST pick up a copy of this month’s Details Magazine. The header is “What Makes Keanu Cry?” GOOOODNESSSS

Why does Francis Bean look so much like her dad, Kurt Cobain?

Am I wrong for not feeling bad for Kobe Bryant? I don’t at all. He wouldn’t be in all this trouble if he’d kept the little general at the post. I don’t know if he raped that girl and I don’t think any of us ever will. But whatever happens he kinda brought it on himself don’t you think? It’s unfortunate that his image is tarnished. It’s unfortunate that his endorsement deals are gone. (He should have read the fine print in those endorsement deals contracts. Companies are now including “good behavior” clauses in contracts. Basically, if you’re naughty your endorsement deals can be yanked. No questions asked.) It’s unfortunate that his marriage could be irrevocably ruined. BUT all of the “unfortunateness” (I know that's not a real word) could have been avoided. So maybe I’m just cold and callused but I don’t really feel bad for him. I do feel bad for the Kobe’s wife, Kobe’s daughter, the girl (If she was actually raped) and X-tina. (You like that segue don’t you?)

Why do I feel bad for X-tina you ask? What have all of the headlines been about? Britney and Madonna. X-tina has apparently ho’ed herself to such a significant degree that she can make out with the princess of darkness and no one even thinks twice about it. So you are so freaktacular that you kiss the woman who has kissed every stank person in the free world (remember Dennis Rodman) and no one bats an eye? Boo-boo, I’m so sorry. Come on home.

There is a guy near me on the plane who is clearing balding and he is rocking a thin curly pony tale. WHY WHY WHY?!?!?! Let it go. Crop that up and rock the short hair like my man Sean Connery.

I was watching the bootleg version of Cribs, How I’m Living, and they were featuring the house of that Asian kid from Smilez and Southstar. Okay, it was just wrong, especially since MTV was touring Shaq’s house on the next station. Now I’m not going to front. My man had a cute little starter home somewhere in Florida. But it was the irony of it all that was cracking me up. Shaq was showing us the biggest bed known to man. Southstar was bragging about his queen size “where the magic takes place.” Shaq was showing us his movie theater. Southstar was showing us his 26” in the bedroom. Complete with VCR, “because sometimes, you know, if I want to tape stuff I’ve got it all taken care of.” It was just wrong, wrong, wrong. So you mean to tell me BET couldn’t find any ethic stars, with comparable homes, to let them in? I say ethnic because apparently BET is for all who want to be “down.” Black, Asian, Hispanic or whatever. I guess famous people don’t trust BET either. Good to know we’re not alone.

But while I’m thinking about it, I do want to offer kudos to BET for putting on some grown folks music. I think the show is actually called Grown Folks Music. I saw some mature R&B videos. By mature I mean everyone kept their clothes on and no one had to use an explicative to get their point across.

Lenny Kravitz and Nicole Kidman-I give it 3 months, TOPS. Didn’t she used to kick it with Q-tip?

And finally, if you haven’t already check out 28 days later. But be forewarned, FULL FRONTAL MALE NUDITY in the first scene. No warning or anything. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not really scary. It wasn't to me, anyway. If anything it’s more apocalyptic. There are some sketchy scenes but overall it’s one of those movies that makes you think, “what would I do if the world were almost over?” At least that’s what I thought. PLEASE NOTE: that the puck rock black British chick DOES in fact hook up with the rock star looking Brit Boy. Also, noteworthy, check out Mark in the early stages of the movie. He will soon be joining the Brit boy hall of fame. But you have to catch him before his untimely demise. And I do mean UNTIMELY.
