C'mon P.  I'ma need you to get up on the times!  Folks have already seen episode 59!!!

I don't have caaaaaaaaable!  I have to make complicated arrangements to watch!

But it's okay, when everyone I knew who watched The Wire looked like death last week, I figured someone must have knocked off [the best character in television history].



Then you're gonna love me for this one:

Wow what can you say?

I blinked and Cheese got his wig pushed back.  Didn't see that one coming.


I feel bad for Duquan though.  Nobody could take 5 minutes to give this kid a job and keep him off the street?  Damn shame!


They could have used an extra 30 minutes though.

Marlo - Columbia --> corporate focus, entrepreneurial strength, cold admissions policy

I wouldn't say that Columbia has a corporate focus or a cold admissions policy...

Haha. Quite true; I wonder if this has replaced Chappelle (though to the blogger's credit, Mos Def was a post a few weeks ago).

Have y'all read this yet? http://stuffeducatedblackpeoplelike.wordpress.com/
Not as good as SWPL, but pretty incisive too.

I think this one is much better: http://stuffblackpeoplehate.com/

Thanks to, I think, GoldenAfro for posting it in the main BLSD thread.

Cold enough that it didn't admit me!

Also, turn on your radio to listen to Spitzer's announcement!
