Politics As Usual

Right now in Georgia (and across the U.S.), politicians are paying for television time to get your votes. They do the usual things: talk a little about themselves, say what their going to do for your state...

...and sling mud at their opponents.

I know this kind of thing has been going on for decades, but lately, it's been getting on my nerves. Particularly the way Republicans have been using Obama as an easy target to get the conservative vote. This may have to do with the fact that the only other President I've voted for lost to a man who doesn't care about Black people.

I wish I could just let this roll down my back like everyone else, but I have to get out my fustration somehow, or else I'll go crazy.

If you want me to vote for you, do something different: simply tell me in plain language what your plans are for Georgia, and let your work speak for itself, instead of attacking the guy on the other end of political spectrum as you. I'd vote for someone like that.

I'm an anarchist, by the way.

Girls on the Mic

I miss Lauren Hill. I'm not the first person to lament about L Boogie, and I won't be the last. But like it or not, she one of the three female emcees mentioned most often when bloggers and writers talk about the lack of Y chromosomes in Hip Hop.

Scratch that; the lack of Y chromosomes in MAINSTREAM Hip Hop.

There are female emcees out there who are making great music. Unfortunately, Lil Wayne is backing Nicki Minaj.

Yeah, Invincible and Jean Grae aren't gonna get airplay outside college radio as long as every chick in the club wants to be a Barbie.

I guess I could say something possitive about Rocky Rivera or something, but it's been said. I'm just tired of hearing the same deep voices on the radio, I guess.

Come back, Ms. Hill.

I don't think it's crazy to talk to yourself. I'm pretty sure I'm doing it right now. Which means I can speak with complete freedom in a crowded room as big as the planet. With that said, let me make the following statements.

I think social networking is one of the most retarded, ass-backwards concepts of our time.

True, I have a MySpace and Facebook account, as well as Twitter, but they often collect dust. I just can't get into the whole idea of having conversations over an internet connection. I don't even like talking on the phone. Worst yet, it spreads the idea that writing is passe, at least with pens and pencil. And I can't stand L33T speak, and technicially I'd be classified as a geek. (A comic geek, but still...)

I don't really have a point to this story, I'm just talking to myself again.
