Tuesday Afternoon Thread: What I’m Listening To

Yeah, that’s the theme today: The last 5 songs I listened to on my Ipod LOL

For Real – You Don’t Know Nuthin

Jade – Blessed

EnVogue – Yesterday

Zhane – Sending My Love

Brownstone – If You Love Me

    Stevie Wonder, the griot of our time, called it back in 1974. JUST as relevant today.

    In honor of Black History Month, and dedicated to:

    the CBC (with a few exceptions)

    So-called ‘academics’ (lookin’ at you, MHP, the “crunk” chick, Bitter Boyce, etc), C&T — Corny and Travesty

    Let’s not forget lefty “liberal” whiny ass titty babies in the “media” (Chris Hayes, Ed Henry, the entire White House Press Corps. Damn, I could go on and on….)

    So, without further ado…


    “You Haven’t Done Nothing”

    We are amazed but not amused
    By all the things you say that you’ll do
    Though much concerned but not involved
    With decisions that are made by you

    But we are sick and tired of hearing your song
    Telling how you are gonna change right from wrong
    ‘Cause if you really want to hear our views
    “You haven’t done nothing”!

    It’s not too cool to be ridiculed
    But you brought this upon yourself
    The world is tired of pacifiers
    We want the truth and nothing else

    And we are sick and tired of hearing your song
    Telling how you are gonna change right from wrong
    ‘Cause if you really want to hear our views
    “You haven’t done nothing”!

    The White House has found more ways to engage Americans in the conversation directly, so should the media— Ben LaBolt (@BenLaBolt) February 19, 2013

    • creolechild

      THIS is why the White House press corps is heated: First of all, seeing as how the “jackals” knew that the state of technology during the Bush years was abysmal, (see link at bottom of post) they were under the impression that they, and only they, had the power to shape the narrative of PBO’s time in office through system-wide news “black outs” regarding anything that he accomplished or by turning press briefings into “unserious” events that were used as opportunities to belittle and disrespect PBO.

      In other words, they bought into their own bullshit, but that’s what happens when you live in a bubble. Silly bitchez! They failed to realize that the public had grown tired of inaccurate information, opinions masquerading as news, and the unadulterated pettiness and egotism of so-called journalists. When it became increasingly clear that the media was no longer credible as a source of accurate information, many people began fact checking for themselves and used social media platforms as tools to push back and refute what was being dessiminated and duplicated by cable TV, radio shows, print and online media venues.

      Meanwhile, PBO and his administration, are all about 21st century technology. Not only did they upgrade White House technology, they took it to another level making photo galleries, videos, livestreams, pods, and apps available and utilized Facebook and Twitter as well to provide us with UNFILTERED information straight from the source. You know they weren’t ready for this man! (CHECK) Despite their efforts at freezing him out and carrying water for the GOP for the past four years, he won re-election to a second term. And, his list of achievements in his first term, alone, will be recorded in the annals of history as “stellar in the face of unprecedented obstruction.” (MATE!)

      That’s gotta hurt! So now, the media is stumbling around in unfamiliar territory simply because they’re not too bright and they have absolutely no point of reference about the survival skills, and creativity, that is honed from an early age by people of color in order to exist in this country. They should have caught a clue from the first four years, but I guess they’re just stupid that way. So, they’ll probably continue to whine, moan, and manufacture incidents that can be used to vent their “frustration.” But guess what? Who gives a fuck about what the media has to say or thinks about PBO, when they’ve been showing their asses for the past four years! I know I don’t…

    Tiger Woods: Golfing with President Obama was ‘pretty cool’
    By Justin Sink – 02/19/13 03:44 PM ET

    Tiger Woods said Tuesday that his weekend golf outing with President Obama was “pretty cool” and that he and the president teamed up for a win against a pairing of U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk and Houston Astros owner Jim Crane.

    “He’s just a wonderful person to be around. And we won,” Woods said at a press conference ahead of the Match Play Championship, according to Sports Illustrated.

    Woods also joked that Obama was “an avid golfer, and so am I.”

  • Jay Carney breaks it down like a fraction…

    “I would note that, you know, and this is important to note given some of the coverage of this issue, that when it comes to solo news conferences, where the president of the United States stands up, and for 40 minutes, 50 minutes, or an hour, takes your questions, allowing reporters to go deep on issues, President Obama has given 35 of those. President Bush, his immediate predecessor gave 19,” Carney said. “When it comes to interviews, the president’s given 591 interviews since he took office. So, I think, that it is clear that we are making an effort to provide access, to make sure that the president is being questioned by reporters and anchors and others. And we’ll continue to do that.”

    “I mean, the president had some downtime, he was playing golf,” Carney said. “You know, I understand that there was a desire to have access or a photograph of that, but the president was having [a vacation].”

    Lil Mama, Keke Palmer cast on VH1 biopic about TLC

    On December 1, 2011, VH1 announced it was prepping a biopic about Atlanta trio TLC.

    More than fourteen months later, the cast has finally been named, according to Deadline.com.
    – Actress Keke Palmer, 19, will play Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, last seen on TV on “Celebrity Cook-Off” last month with Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri. Palmer, who is also a singer, played the lead in “Akeelah and the Bee” and two locally-shot films “Joyful Noise” and “Madea’s Family Reunion.” She also starred in Nickelodeon sitcom “True Jackson, VP.”

    – Rap star Lil Mama, 33, will be Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, who died in a car accident in Honduras in 2002. She’s had two top 10 hits and was a judge on MTV’s “Amercia’s Best Dance Crew.”

    – Actress Drew Sidora, 27, will try to capture the essence of Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, last seen on her own reality series on TLC. She played Chantel on Disney’s “That’s So Raven” and a fictionalized version of herself on “The Game,” now on BET.

    These heartless cuts, in the state with the fifth-highest jobless rate in the nation, at 9.2 percent, show a shocking disregard for 400,000 unemployed North Carolinians and their families, many of whom will now go from struggling to barely make ends meet to outright struggling to survive. — –

    – — – –Marco Rubio and the White House are in a spat over whether President Obama sought enough input from Republicans in crafting their immigration plan.

    Here’s the order of events:

    •Rubio spokesman Alex Conant told reporters on Tuesday that “Senator Rubio’s office has never discussed immigration policy with anyone in the White House.”

    •Jay Carney disputed that claim in his briefing on Tuesday and a senior White House official told TPM that the White House had met five times with staff from members of the bipartisan Senate group working on a bill, of which Rubio is a participant.

    •Conant shot back on Twitter that while the meetings had taken place, the White House “never asked for our input” on a bill.

    •But White House officials say that the incomplete version of their bill floating around the press over the weekend was an unauthorized leak, and that they only planned to release legislation if Rubio’s Senate group and its House equivalent fail to produce a bill themselves.

    So basically a lot of noise around the definition of “input” and “meeting.” The exchange was part of a broader spat betwen Rubio and Obama over immigration that’s been playing out over the weekend.

    Hmm hmm, ninjas owe Bobby Brown an apology. Whitney’s brother is the one who introduced her to drugs!

      Anybody who knew anything about her brother, Gary Garland, who now uses the last name Houston, when he was a starting point guard for the DePaul Blue Demons in the 80s knew that Whitney learned that stuff from her brothers. Gary was a cokehead then.

    – – —Independent Analysis: Sequester Spending Cuts Would Cost 700,000 Jobs – –

    – ——-President Obama today called, once again, for Republicans in Congress to support a plan to void the so-called “sequester,” the automatic budget cuts scheduled for March that were set in motion by the 2011 debt ceiling deal. House Republicans responded by releasing a statement that called for eliminating job training and financial literacy programs and by mocking the very idea of government funded scientific studies.

    —But engaging in the sort of austerity included in the sequester is a terrible idea with the economy in its current fragile state. As Macroeconomic Advisers noted today (reiterating its previous analysis), the sequester will knock 0.6 percent off of economic growth this year, killing 700,000 jobs:

    – Our baseline forecast, which shows GDP growth of 2.6% in 2013 and 3.3% in 2014, does not include the sequestration.

    – The sequestration would reduce our forecast of growth during 2013 by 0.6 percentage point (to 2.0%) but then, assuming investors expect the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) to delay raising the federal funds rate, boost growth by 0.1 percentage point (to 3.4%) in 2014.

    – By the end of 2014, the sequestration would cost roughly 700,000 jobs (including reductions in armed forces), pushing the civilian unemployment rate up ¼ percentage point, to 7.4%. The higher unemployment would linger for several years.

        Love your comments Lamh36, it’s the only reason I would have to view that site, since with the exception of yourself and a few other POU commentors, I cannot stand the others. That post was all about Elon defending his blackademic friends and having jerks on BJ cosign MHP’s nonsense. As for people on there saying that twitter folks were ‘misunderstanding’ her, they can have a roomfull of seats.

      Since I didn’t see any of Obama’s or MHP’s statements, I feel uniquely qualified to opine on this issue. Ask me anything.

    – – —Quincy Jones launches music education application — –

    – – – – –Quincy Jones says he has co-created the music version of Rosetta Stone.

    The 79-year-old composer-producer launched a new music education application Tuesday called Playground Sessions, which teaches users how to play the piano. He said the app will help children and adults learn how to read music and understand the mechanics of piano playing.

    There’s “such a need for this,” Jones said in an interview last week. “The concept is brand-new. I have been praying for this for a long time. It has a learning concept similar to Rosetta Stone. I’m blown away by this.”

    — –Playground Sessions is a musical app with real-time feedback and video tutorials from pianist David Sides. It features about 70 popular songs by Beyonce and Justin Bieber, and well-known tunes like Katy Perry’s “Firework” and Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York.”

    Jones, who produced Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and other successful albums, hopes Playground Sessions will have an impact on music education programs in schools around the world. One of first schools that will use the app is Jones’ alma mater, Garfield High School in Seattle.
    – –SNIP – —
    – – –Chris Vance, who co-created the app and founded Playground Sessions, got together with Jones more than a year ago after working alone on the application for three years. He said Jones immediately saw a vision for the product and wanted to make learning music a fun experience.

    Phylicia Rashad Blasts Kim K’s Mom

    Reality TV star and manager Kris Jenner didn’t have any kind words for Honey Boo Boo‘s ratchet parents. According to America’s favorite sitcom mom, Phylicia Rashad, Kris Jenner is the pot calling the kettle negro.

    According to new reports, Rashad feels Kris Jenner is just as bad as the ratchet mothers of reality television because she has pushed her children to become fame-whores and get a check by any means necessary. A source close to the former “Cosby Show” star said, “She feels Kris represents everything shallow and vulgar about Hollywood.”

    Amen sister Claire…lol

    – —-A recently-released photo from the White House shows President Barack Obama editing his inauguration address just over a week before delivering it at the start of his second term.

    Among the handwritten changes is the replacement of the phrase “not what we look like” with “not the color of our skin,” the words he went on to deliver January 21.

    “History tells us,” he wrote on the pictured draft after quoting the famous opening lines of the Declaration of Independence.

    The official White House photo was taken by Obama’s top photographer Pete Souza. The caption says Obama was working with Jon Favreau, his outgoing speechwriter, in the Oval Office on January 16. — —

    — –Supreme Court Won’t Raise Standards For Drug-Sniffing Dogs– –

    —–The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld the validity of an alert by a drug-sniffing dog whose certification had expired. In a unanimous decision on one of two drug-sniffing dog cases before the court this term, Justice Elena Kagan said the Florida Supreme Court imposed requirements far too onerous on police to establish the reliability of police dogs. She wrote: — –

    The question—similar to every inquiry into probable cause—is whether all the facts surrounding a dog’s alert, viewed through the lens of common sense, would make a reasonably prudent person think that a search would reveal contraband or evidence of a crime. A sniff is up to snuff when it meets that test. – – LOL- –
