Baaaaaad Boy?!?!!

I could not have said any of this any better so I will just quote this
article right here!
Although he was portrayed as a good guy in the Biggie biopic, Notorious, (being the executive producer and all) the real life Sean “Diddy” Combs has a smudged record that boasts numerous failed artists and groups.
Danity Kane, Bad Boy’s most recently dissolved group fell prey to the curse after a short two years in the industry. The alleged “bad boy curse” dates back to Diddy’s early beginnings with the ill-fated Notorious B.I.G. Some speculate as to whether it’s really a Bad Boy curse, or simply a Diddy curse.
It’s safe to say that Bad Boy is the Bermuda triangle of the music world. Artists go in and are never to be found again. Remember Carl Thomas? Tall, handsome R & B crooner? He’s now an independent artist. Seems very weird considering that he was such a great talent. Disappointed with the direction of their career on Bad Boy, the L.O.X. fought to be released from their contract in order to join the then newly formed Ruff Ryders/ Interscope label.
"When you see me, don't ask me nothin' about us and don't definitely ask me about Puffy," the L.O.X.'s Kiss spewed in a song entitled "Blood Pressure." Rapper Mase was dipped in the baptismal font (found Jesus) and is currently saving souls in Atlanta. We definitely don’t consider that a downgrade by no means, but we do find it rather funny that Bad Boy artists need spiritual guidance after dealing with Mr. Take That, Take That. I.E.
Loon converting to Islamic faith. Both Mase and Loon declined to comment on the matter. Check out these interesting details from an article published in the Village Voice by Peter Noel: Even Bad Boy insiders are fed up with the way Combs allegedly has treated prominent acts such as singer Carl Thomas and rapper Black Rob.
"I remember when Carl was signed to Bad Boy for a long time and used to hang out with me in Brooklyn," says an R&B artist who spoke on condition of anonymity. "He was broke just from waiting to have his album put out. He was on the label for at least two years and Bad Boy wouldn't put his album out. I would ask him, 'When you coming out, Carl? What's up with your stuff?' His album came out after the Club New York shooting. "Puffy had no choice," the artist continues. "He needed something to save the label. If you save the label, you're one of his guys.
He'll take you to St. Bart's for a while, and then you're never heard from again. You hear nothing about Carl Thomas these days. Almost nothing." Adds the source: "It's just disgusting to me how nobody sees that anybody with a lot of talent who goes to Bad Boy suddenly disappears. As soon as somebody doesn't agree with him, their music goes on the cutting room floor." Who could forget Jamaal "Shyne" Barrow, the gangsta rapper who was convicted of two counts of assault, two gun possession charges, and one count of reckless endangerment in the Club New York case. Barrow lashed out at Diddy, accusing him of betraying his trust to save himself. Sounds about right. Shyne will be release in October of 2009. Will he be out for blood?
Diddy’s biggest artists have ditched Bad Boy for different labels, all with the same complaint – It’s all about Diddy. Great artists become faint memories, steadily losing relevance while the CEO gets his shine on. In 2003, Faith left the label to sign with Capitol Records. 112 left Bad Boy and signed to the Def Soul roster in early 2002. Popular R&B group, Total disappeared into thin air after having a platinum album. Mark Curry, an Atlanta-based entertainer who was signed to the Bad Boy Entertainment record label from 1997 until 2005, wrote most of Diddy’s first hit singles, including “Come With Me” from the 1998 Godzilla soundtrack.
In his new book, Dancing With the Devil, Curry talks about some of Diddy’s ridiculous antics (appearances in EVERY video, being on every record). “Puff charged the artists for his appearances on their records and videos, usually without them realizing it until they discovered their paltry publishing royalty statements. That’s when they discovered that a large sum of their money had gone to fees which were doubled, tripled and even quadrupled because of Puff’s special guest appearance.
He charged artists, for example, for having his Bentley in their videos – which he insisted upon - then took a tax credit for business use of the car.”Dare we say that the curse rests not upon the record label, but is directly correlated to Puff’s poisonous acts? There’s no doubt that there is a science to his success (dude is a mogul), however his rap sheet is long and treacherous.
This idea of an ever-looming dark cloud could really just be a man with a different plan. Executives typically follow a formula that works in their artists favor. Diddy does not. In his fight to remain a relevant brand, assuming wannabe stars are vacuum-sucked into the Bad Boy machine, drained of their talents, and spit back out once they are no longer an asset to the Sean John dynasty. There is no curse, people. These careers have been destroyed by motives. You may kindly Diddy-bop your way to the unemployment line now.

My new Honda!

French industrial and automotive designer Jonathan Mahieddine has created quite a stir on numerous popular tech-oriented websites with his Honda Fuzo, a futuristic design for a flying car.

The young, creative designer envisions the Fuzo as a lightweight and sturdy vehicle — thanks to extensive use of Kevlar, carbon fiber and carbon nanotubes — that would be capable of traveling through the air at a top speed of 350 mph, thanks to four powerful turbine engines. It would also be able to take off and land vertically, like Britain's famous Harrier jump jet and the U.S. military's own V-22 Osprey. What's more, upon landing, the Fuzo would extend its retractable wheels and tool around town like a normal automobile.

Other elements Mahieddine envisions for the Fuzo are a GPS system that not only guides the car to its predetermined destination but also communicates with other GPS-enabled vehicles for collision avoidance. Additionally, airbags would be placed both inside and outside of the vehicle to both minimize injury to its occupants and cushion the blow to pedestrians or non-GPS-equipped vehicles.
Ok so all I have to do is trade in my 06 Honda Accord and what do you think my payments will be? Possibly about 24.3 million over 7 years? I am certain with my good credit I can get a great interest rate…Piece O cake!

Don't push me cause I'm close to the edge....

The Associated Press reported....

A man depressed over the debt he inherited contemplated jumping to his death for hours as he sat on the edge of a bridge in Beijing. In a surprising twist, a passerby joined him on the ledge shook his hand and pushed him off.According to the Associated Press, Chen Fuchao survived the 26 foot fall into the partially inflated air cushion the authorities laid out that Saturday afternoon. He suffered spine and elbow injuries but is expected to recover quickly.

The passerby, Lai Jiansheng, 66, was disgusted and fed up with Chen's "selfish activity" that had in and outbound traffic on the Haizhu bridge in a Southern China city of Guangzhou, backed up for more than 5 hours with police barricading the area."I pushed him off because jumpers like Chen are very selfish. Their action violates a lot of public interest," Lai said. "They do not really dare to kill themselves. Instead, they just want to raise the relevant government authorities' attention to their appeals."

Lai tried to gain clearance to talk to a suicidal Chen but his offer was denied by the police, reports Xinhua News Agency. Lai then broke through the barrier, climbed to where Chen sat, greeted him with a handshake and pushed. Photos of the incident showed a shoeless Lai saluting as Chen was falling.After Lai climbed off the bridge, he was taken into custody and released later that day.

A local Bejing Newspaper said that Lai suffered from "mental illness" for decades and was on his way to the hospital to get his medication. The paper also reported Chen wanted to commit suicide because he had accumulated $290,000 in debt from a failed construction project. He is currently recovering in a hospital.

This right here is my kind of guy!! Not only did he break through the police barricade, then trick the man by shaking his hand first but he then pushed the already suicidal man off a bridge and then saluted as he was falling!!!

Then stopped for an interview and said the jumper was “SELFISH”!! HOW AWESOME IS THIS GUY??!!

Lai Jiansheng you have a Classic University Scholarship waiting on you!

"Sake" TO ME!

Reuters reported.....

A Taiwanese groom died on his wedding day after having too much wine and beer to drink, police and local media said Monday.

The man, 35, an insurance company worker surnamed Wu passed out at home after drinking too much Saturday at a high-end restaurant in Taipei among more than 100 wedding guests, the Liberty Times reported.

It was not known if he had health complications.
"Everyone was having a great time," said restaurant party organizer Linda Chien. "We don't know what happened after that."

Wu was hospitalized after his face turned black, the paper said. A hospital spokeswoman said he died despite treatment.

I don't know whether to laugh at this guy or to feel sorry for the bride, but I found this truly incredible! I mean was he soooo happy that he drank himself to death or was he that sad to be getting married? Either way, he no longer has to worry about any of it.

Chat with DARTH....

How Hilarious is this?!?!!?

You only THOUGHT you saw it all!!

What if you lived with some nasty people, either family or roommate, both can be disgusting at times. If you have no idea what I am talking about then YOU are probably the nasty, filthy person I am talking about.

Well lets just say its not you, and you don’t like using the same bathroom as this nasty person, who leaves the seat wet or dirty, well here is the answer to your prayers….toilet PAGES!!

This toilet comes with pages or tabs if you will, that provides each person with their own personal toilet seat.

When it’s your turn to ummm, do your bizness, simply look for your name, lift the lid and other seats until you see your personal seat and bang…bathroom boo-boo bliss!!

Unless of course this nasty person you live with is also a jerk and they use your seat any way, in which case you have wasted your money on this seat because you could have just had a regular toilet if they are going to use your seat any…whew…let me calm down.

When I grow up...

The associated press reported….

An Eleven-year-old Fin Keheler, from Sandy, Utah, allowed 43 of the slimy mollusks to be put on his face Saturday. He wants the Guinness World Records to verify his effort.

The Guinness web site says the record set in 2007 for snails on the face for 10 seconds is eight. The boy says he has since learned the record was 36.

Fin made three attempts on Saturday. Sitting back in a reclining chair, snails gathered from neighbors' gardens were carefully placed on his face.

Those that remained for at least 10 seconds were counted.
His family is sending witness statements, video and media coverage to Guinness this week.

So this is your goal in life?

Forget being a doctor, a Nobel peace prize winner or even a roided (Steroids) up Baseball player, this lunatic kid just woke up one day and said I want to be the person with the most snails on my face.

Is that what happened kid? Its one thing to have a crazy kid thats probably going through a phase but this kids family is in on the this as well.

The family is actually supporting and helping him with witness statements and video taping their son put funky snails on his face!

Is there any wonder why we mass produce serial killers!

For all of those with a life that are not sure what they are looking at, this is a picture of the Hobbit Jermaine Dupri, a Grammy award winning music producer extraordinaire, and he is showing off a new tattoo.

The tattoo is of his long time girlfriend and once a Classic University favorite Janet Jackson. Dupri had the tattoo done as a birthday gift for Janet Jackson.

However at this juncture no one really cares about Janet, she is WELL-DONE musically, she CANNOT act and she is a lunatic Jackson. Janet Jackson has overstayed her welcome, it is time to go!

So I say to Jermaine Dupri….DUDE NO ONE CARES!!!!

At this point in the game dating Janet Jackson is just like buying the Magnum P.I. Ferrari, back in 1980 every one wanted to drive it, everyone wanted to have it and everyone LOVED IT!! However, 29 years later, it cost like $47, it still looks decent but driving it now…not so special and no one really cares.

So Jermaine go ahead and get your little tattoos on your little body and ruin the little skin you have left, but don’t ever….ever, ever, ever, ever, show us again!

Operation Flash Drive!!!

How could you not want one of these!!!

Turn your flash drive into a transformer!

The Ravage Transforming USB Flash Memory ($43 September 2009) has 2 GB storage.

It can be a mini cassette (flash drive ) and also can be transformed a vicious cat...Ravage the cat that used to work for the awesome decepticon SOUNDWAVE!!!!

It is a bit expensive for a 2 GB flash drive, but not for a hardcore Classic University fan like myself.

up up down down left right left right b a start!

Way back in 1985 what would you have been willing to give for a handheld NES? Your full collection of Garbage Pail Kids cards maybe?... or how about your old Atari 2600 and a sealed copy of ET?

Well now now thanks to the discriminating product monkeys at all you need is half a Benjamin and some old NES cartridges to achieve portable gaming Nirvana.

Thats right, the Retro Mini Handheld plays all the classic 8-bit NES games you grew up with and looks pretty darn sweet with the old style giant cartridge protruding from the top.

Simply pop in 4 AA batteries and jack in your favorite original NES cartridge. The built in hi-res LCD screen looks a lot better than your old crappy TV, plus the Retro Mini comes with AV out cables to connect with your newfangled flatscreen if you so desire.


A Classic University Classic!

Monday, May 18, 2009

And then there were 4!

The real final 4 is about to start tomorrow night! The Orlando Magic on the road against the Cleveland Cavaliers. As well as the Los Angeles Lakers at home against the Denver THUGet….I mean Nuggets. Sorry for the Freudian slip, Mark Cuban influenced me for just a second.

Here is the Classic University take on the current NBA situation, Orlando is a very deep and well coached team however Orlando does not always show up and they are very irregular at times. With attributes like these, I cannot see how they will be able to defeat the Cavs. I think Cleveland will beat Orlando in 6. I really think 5 games will do it, but these are the Conference Finals and I have to give a team more credit than that.

Orlando does not play defense well enough to stop the Cavaliers, Lebron James averages over 30 against the Magic and that is bad news. Even though I feel the Orlando Magic probably have a better team than the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Cavs are playing so well and are so focused, that I believe the Cavs win the series in 6.

Now on to the good stuff! The Denver Nuggets have been much like the Cleveland Cavaliers the entire playoffs…ON A MISSION! The Nuggets have been focused and driven and motivated to crush their opponent, not stooping to the level of their competition. That is more than I can say about Los Angeles Lakers who were taken 7 games by a Houston Rocket team that was so depleted by injuries that they actually called me last week and asked if I could play but I was busy last week.

The Rockets front office actually got upset with me, and I really think I could have contributed but my sister was getting married, you have to have priorities.

Game 7 normally is where the biggest and brightest stars shine in the NBA, but check this out…

Pau Gasol had 21 points, Trevor Ariza had 15 points, Andrew Bynum 14 points and Superstar Kobe Bryant had a whopping 14 point on 4 or 12 shooting!! Is he a role player now? Kobe Bryant scores 14 points in an elimination game 7 against Shane Battier and Laker fans are ok with this?

The Lakers are not going to have the luxury of showing up or not showing up against the Denver Nuggets. The Lakers have no answer for Chauncey Billups or Carmelo Anthony, these 2 stars will be able to score at will. That half way defense they have been playing only worked for the undersized, undermanned Houston Rockets.

Personally the Lakers do not seem hungry enough to beat Denver so I think Denver wins this series in 6 games. The Lakers are what people keep calling a “FINESSE” team, well here at Classic University “FINESSE” is kind way of saying “female”.

Finesse has no place at Classic University and no place in the playoffs. That so called “FINESSE” is why the Lakers keep appearing to not appear! Finesse, just like a female, everything has to be just right for the Lakers to play up to par. In order for the Lakers to play good basketball, the lighting in the arena has to be just right, the referees have to wear the right shoes, they have to get all the right calls, the cheerleaders have to dance just right, and the teammates have to do exactly what Kobe tells them to do.

Houston exposed the Lakers but were not deep enough to finish the job…the Denver Nuggets are that team. They will finish the Lakers in 6 games and send them back to the drawing board and I can not wait!

This may be the sickess thing I have ever heard!

California News Turn to 23 reported....

"It was pretty bizarre," said neighbor Ramon Rodriguez.

Rodriguez was one of the first to discover 34-year-old Angelo Mendoza on April 28 after police said Mendoza bit an eyeball out of his 4-year-old son's face and ate it.

"The guy was crazy. Real bug-eyed; he had to be on drugs," said Rodriguez.

Court documents said neighbors checked on Mendoza's son, Angelo Jr., after they noticed the father acting nervously and fleeing from his east Bakersfield apartment in his wheelchair. Inside, they found little Angelo naked and bleeding. Police said the boy had numerous bites to his hands and his eyes were swollen shut. Doctors said the boy's left eye and muscle were completely missing. His other eye was mutilated beyond repair. The boy told them, "My daddy ate my eyes out." Rodriguez said meanwhile Mendoza approached him at a neighbor's vacant house down the street.

Rodriguez said the boy's father wheeled himself into the front yard and asked Rodriguez to play with him and a pet dog. He was wearing boxers and a sweater. When Rodriguez refused, Mendoza got off his wheelchair and dragged himself into a back yard, where he found an ax.

By then Mendoza had stripped naked. He chained himself to a tree in the back yard and began hacking at his leg with a pickax while yelling incoherently.

"He told me to look into the sun and pray with him. I was kinda scared for a minute," said Rodriguez.

Then Rodriguez jumped on Mendoza and wrestled the ax away.

"As soon as I grabbed the ax he tried to bite me, and I had to hold him down with my knee. There was dry blood around his mouth. I don't know if it was his own, but I'm pretty sure it was his son's now that I hear the story," said Rodriguez.

The police report said Mendoza appeared to be under the influence of PCP. Rodriguez said had he known about little Angelo, the outcome would have been different.

"I would've just let him cut his leg off. What happened to his son is not right. I would've left him alone," said Rodriguez.

Mendoza was arrested on charges of torture, aggravated mayhem, and cruelty to a child. The toddler is now in the custody of Child Protective Services. Mendoza is due in court May 20. His bail is set at $1 million.

I do not know why they call PCP "angel dust" because there is nothing angelic about it! Demon Dust is more like it! This is horrible! There is only one person that can fully repair that boys life.

Casual Friday

Since it's Friday, here is Hilarious Video about casual Friday!!

Is everyone from Africa black?


All Paulo Serodio did was answer a question about his cultural heritage honestly.

The Mozambique native told classmates at a New Jersey medical school he was a white African-American.

Now Serodio is suing, saying the harassment and suspension he suffered cost him two years of his life and has all but destroyed his dreams of a medical career.

The lawsuit filed Monday calls for Serodio's reinstatement at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, plus monetary damages from the Newark-based school.

The controversial question came during a March 2006 clinical skills course.
Another student was offended by Serodio's answer and he was summoned to the professor's office.

There, he was told to never define himself as African-American, despite being a third-generation African. The lawsuit says he began to be harassed by other students, who sought disciplinary action against him.

"I wouldn't wish this to my worst enemy," he said. "I'm not exaggerating. This has destroyed my life, my career."

Serodio eventually found himself suspended from the school just before pivotal second-year exams and couldn't even transfer to another medical school.
The lawsuit asks Serodio also be allowed to take his board exams and for an acknowledgement that the school discriminated.

Serodio said “This has destroyed my life “and all he did was SAY he was an African American, imagine how hard it is being an African American!

I think the label “African American” is totally ridiculous anyway. To say that a black person born in America is an African American is tantamount to a slap in the face!

What do you call a white person born in America? An American right? White people came to this country as well, so how 2 babies born in the same American hospital on America soil can be classified as 2 different things? If this is the case the real Americans are Indians.

It is insulting to call black people born in America “African Americans”, it implies that every one in and from Africa is black and guess what…THERE ARE WHITE PEOPLE IN AFRICA TOO!!!

A person (white or black) born in Africa who decided they wanted to live in America and become a citizen, once they are a citizen, they are called an African American. So why a black child born in America would be called the same thing is beyond me!

What is your opinion?

Another Tirade!!!

I was flipping through the channels the other night and I came across the original 50 cent hit “In da Club”.

While this was and is a great song, unbeknownst to myself and those who loved it, it was the beginning of an era that I despise. The era of the song about the CLUB!!!!!!

If you were to listen to a hip-hop/R&B radio station for any significant length of time these days you are going to hear a song about either the club, what goes on in the club or the notorious V.I.P.

Due to the popularity of the songs about the Club, many new artist have to have a club song, and some artist are making their first single a song about the club, as a result the radio waves are flooded with this nonsense.

Granted, some of these songs are made “FOR” the club and to get you up and dancing, however the same goal can be accomplished with plain old original music, there is no need to focus so heavily on the actual club.

Just to illustrate my point, check out a few of these recent hit songs…

Usher – Love in this club
Plies – I am the club
Beanie Sigel – In the Club
Young Jeezy – In this club
Lil john – In da club
R. Kelly – Freaky in the club

These are just songs with “CLUB” in the title. I went to a hip-hop lyric site and searched for “club” and almost 1,800 songs came up, how ridiculous is that? Where is the originality? Is that a thing of the past?

Does this mean that if I am new artist, when making my album, all I need to do is make a song about the club, a “murder” song, another club song, a “how rich I am” song, oh and one more club song for good measure?

This club trend is even bleeding significantly over in to R & B, one of the biggest hits of 2008 was Ushers song “Love in this Club”, where he talks about actually having sex in the club right in front every one. WOOOOOOW! Whatever happened to hotels and parking lots? LOL!

Marques Houston had a song a few years ago called “Clubbin”. The song was a hit and it was produced by the 50 year old teenager and club king, R. Kelly, who in turn made the above song “Freaky in the club” and his hit “I’m a flirt” was all about the club as well. And who was featured on that song with R. Kelly? T-Pain....and in case you didn’t know, T-Pain apparently LIVES in the club, because most of his hits are about, guess what subject?

Remember T-pain’s hit song “Bartender”, guess where they work, CLUBS. How about the song “Buy you a drank”, I am not sure what a “DRANK” is but drinks are made by whom? BARTENDERS and once again, where do they work? CLUBS!!!! Oh and don’t forget the hit song “I’m N Luv wit a stripper”, just so happens strippers work in strip CLUBS, which is where bartenders serve drinks and strippers strip!! Go figure!

T-pain also helped produce “Blame it” one of the hottest songs on the radio right now…Now boys and girls, can you guess what that song is about? THE STINKING CLUB!!!


Music is at an all time low right now because as soon as someone comes out with a hit song, no matter what it is or what it is about every one has to copy it. No originality and no artistry needed, just check the top of the music charts, then copy and paste.

We here at Classic University are saddened and depressed by this state of affairs and we are about cut out early and go to the Club and get a drank!

Classic University REALNESS!!!

Maxwell may appear smooth and suave onstage, but he says it's all just an act.

The soul singer says he's actually insecure — so a concert tour last fall helped boost his confidence about releasing a new album."Just the encouragement, you can't imagine," Maxwell said at a reception Tuesday. "I'm an insecure person at best. ... I feel like going on the road, I got so much inspiration.".

On the other hand…Maxwell says "The way I make good music, it's not about what's expected of me," he said recently after a Manhattan reception for his upcoming CD. "It's hard to make good music when you're thinking about what somebody wants you to do." So he didn't think about what the fans or his record label wanted. As we say in the 'hood, Max did him. It's been eight years since he released his last album.

"It was a lot easier than I thought it would be," he said about his prolonged vacation. "It was a lot easier than I thought it was to enjoy. [My career] started when I was 21. I don't want to complain about my life, because I don't want to sound crazy to a person that's living a life. I've been blessed. But the common things people take for granted, I never had for a long stretch, such as riding on the train."

"I feel like I've relished these few years, where I got to kick it, where I got to meet girls who didn't know who I was, where they would be like, 'What's your name?' " he said. "Knowing you're appreciated for you as a person was something that was very easy to be into for a while. “
"What tends to happen when records are coming out and all the things that come around you, you're never sure [how genuine people are]," he added. "I'm very insecure, and I want to know people appreciate real things. You want to know somebody's around you not because of what you could offer or who you are."

Maxwell, through the inspiration of his fans, seems to have put his insecurities aside for now. His new work of art BLACKsummers'night, due to be released July 7 and marks Maxwell's first album in almost 8 years, is a nine-track Columbia Records set, the first installment of a planned trilogy, was recorded with a ten-piece band. The first single, the lullaby-like "Pretty Wings," was released Tuesday. The second and third parts of the Trilogy are supposed to be released in 2010 and 2011, respectively.

The single “Pretty Wings” made the highest debut in four years at Billboard’s Adult R&B chart where it landed at no.15 this week. But that is not the only chart victory for Maxwell. The former “Fortunate” singer leaped up to no.22 on the Hot R&B/Hip Hop songs chart which also scored him the best debut by a male artist in a year.

When asked what kind of reception he expected for the album, he said: "I try not to live by expectations. "If you just do it with love, the rest will be taken care of."

"I wanted to be like, 'I like how this sounds,' " he said of his pressure-free recording process this time around." 'I don't care if people buy it or not. It makes me feel good.' "

I really like what he is saying here, it seems that Maxwell is so real as a person that the fame and celebrity actually stalled his career. As a fan, I am glad he is back making great music, but as a human being, it sickens me that he has to go through this just to do what he loves. Do you Maxwell!

Bang, Bang, Bang

Check this out…
Police said an 11-year-old girl threatened her 7-year-old sister with a gun to force the younger child to play with her on Monday at her grandmother's residence. Police said the girl also pointed the .38-caliber pistol at her grandmother.

The child surrendered the gun after the grandmother made several demands for it.The weapon wasn't loaded but police believe the girl didn't know that.

Police said the two girls argued and the 11-year-old then retrieved the gun from her grandmother's bedroom. She was being held at a juvenile detention center on charges of brandishing a weapon and domestic assault.

Ok first of all, are you that horrible of a child that you need a gun to make your own sister play with you? Second, this kid actually pointed the gun at her grandmother?

I would not be here to write these words if had even went in my grandmother's room wtithout her permission, much less point a 38 pistol at her. My grandmother would have whupped me with her antique coffee table if I even thought about going into to her bedroom to take ANYTHING!!! Not to mention the whuppin my father would have given me after my grandmother told him why she beat me into the Intensive Care Unit.

Let me set the scene for you…about 4 weeks after my grandma beat me with the coffee table, I wake up in the ICU. The doctor releases me a week later, and on said release day, my father says to the doctor, “don’t make that bed up just yet” and proceeds to give me the whuppin of a lifetime and I am able to keep the same room in the ICU!

Not only do I get to miss 2 months of school, in the end, I would be a better person for it….that is if I didn’t suffer any real brain damage and if could retain the use of my butt and limbs.

An Indian man who fathered seven daughters has not washed for 35 years in an apparent attempt to ensure his next child is a boy, newspapers reported.
Kailash "Kalau" Singh replaces bathing and brushing his teeth with a "fire bath" every evening when he stands on one leg beside a bonfire, smokes marijuana and says prayers to Lord Shiva, according to the Hindustan Times.

"It's just like using water to take a bath," Kalau was reported as saying. "A fire bath helps kill germs and infection in the body."

Kalau, 63, from a village outside the holy city of Varanasi, outraged his family by refusing to take a ritual dip in the river Ganges even after his brother died five years ago.
"I still don't remember how it all began," he said in Saturday's edition of the paper. "I just know it started about 35 years ago."

Kalau's hygiene regime has taken its toll on his professional life.
The grocery store that he used to own closed when customers stopped shopping there due to his "unhealthy personality" and he now tills fields near Varanasi airport.
Kalau, who wears two pullovers all through the Indian summer, said his pledge not to wash was a commitment to the "national interest."

"I'll end this vow only when all problems confronting the nation end," he said.
But his neighbors in the village of Chatav said there was another reason for Kalau's washing boycott.
"A seer once told Kalau that if he does not take a bath, he would be blessed with a male child," a man called Madhusudan told the paper.
Most Indians prefer sons, who are typically regarded as breadwinners, while girls are seen as a burden because of the matrimonial dowry demanded by a groom's family and the fact that their earnings go to their husband's family.

Ok so I kind of agree with that last sentence, but the part about not washing is a definite NO-NO!!!

This guy probably has a pretty robust funk force field by now. I bet he can’t even feel it when it rains, the water almost certainly evaporates before it gets near him! And what kind of woman is still making babies with this funkzilla?

I mean this dudes breath and body must smell like slow roasted butt smothered in booty gravy with extra booty, with finely chopped up sautéed deep-fried doo-doo on a bed of funky rice! YUMMY!!

That standing on one leg junk ain’t going to fix that kind of funk. That dude is going to need to be put under anesthesia and have open funk surgery and a funkendectomy to get rid of half that funk!

Then the fool has the nerve to say he will end his funkathon when all the problems confronting the nation ends....YOU AND YOUR FUNKY BEHIND ARE A PROBLEM FACING THE NATION!!

Why didn't I think of that?

Introducing the Shadow Chair being launched at the Milan Salone Satellite in April 2009.
A chair that integrates shadow into its structure.
At first glance it is a simple wooden chair that seems to defy gravity by standing upright while only having two front legs, but on closer inspection the shadow is part of the chair and made from steel, which is attached to a metal frame built inside the chair.

How great is that?

Such a great conversation piece and you only need about $800 bucks to get the party started!!

I like it, but personally I will just let my chairs make their own shadows for the low, low price of free. Thanks Shadow Chair...but no thanks.

Have to have it!!!

What did you just say?

For all those that are not aware, Mike Singletary is the current NFL head coach of the San Francisco 49ers and he was one the best Linebackers to ever play football.

Mike Singletary was the leader and focal point of the one of the greatest NFL defenses of all time, the 1985 Chicago Bears.

However, he has one flaw…he is a black man, well at least that is what his wife thinks.

In THIS Article Mike Singletary’s wife of 25 years, Kim Singletary, said something that I don’t even know how to take about how she felt when she met her husband and father to her 7 children, and I quote from the article….

“The young Baylor students forged a strong friendship. They also shared a faith in God. But Kim had never envisioned herself in an interracial relationship. She kept thinking, “I’d sure like to meet someone like him who is white.”

Say what now?!?!? Let me go back and read that again…yeah it still says the same thing. WOOOOW!!

Granted, Baylor University in Waco, Texas, is a private Baptist university and filled with mostly Caucasians but Kim, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING!?!?!

How can anyone say something like that and actual not mean anything derogatory?

I would like to give her a pass because she has been married to a black man for 25 years and has 7 children with him, but does she deserve a pass? What is your opinion of what Kim Singletary had to say?

The NEW Bird and Magic.

The media has found their new Bird and Magic...It's Lebron and Kobe and they are going to milk them for all they can!

However Kobe is throwing a big wrench in the plans, letting the Houston Rockets, a team with two franchise players on the bench, whup the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 4 of the NBA semi-finals.

Lebron looks focused and has lead the Cleveland Cavaliers to 1st and 2nd round sweeps and double digit wins, Kobe...not so much.

Steal a look at the new Nike commercial of the new school Bird and Magic...

Glance before you get in the stance!

Reuters reports.....

A Taiwanese man became a sitting target for a snake, which bit his penis as sat on the toilet at his rural home, local media reported on Monday.

"As soon as he sat down, he suddenly felt a knife-like pain and reacted instinctively by standing up," the China Times said. "When he looked down, he saw the big snake."

The 51-year-old man, from Nantou County, was under medical care with minor injuries, a director at Puli Christian Hospital said.

"As soon as he has passed the risk of infection, he can go," the director, who declined to be named, said. "A snake's mouth isn't always clean."

Local television images showed the black and yellow reptile, reportedly a species of rat snake, being uncoiled and plucked slowly from the toilet bowl.
Snakes regularly enter rural homes in Taiwan and other sub-tropical regions of Asia.


I found so much humor in this article but it is soooo hard to laugh considering what happened to the guy. I personally do not know what I would do if that happen to me. However I do know this, if snakes regularly do stuff like this, I would be on the next thing floating out of that country!!!!!!

This is how it should be done!

This is how it should be done!!!

The new NBA MVP Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers molly-whopped the Atlanta Hawks yesterday in game 1 of the Second round of the NBA playoffs. When you are the #1 seed playing an inferior #4 seed that is what you should be doing.

Some one needs to tell that to Kobe Bean. Yesterday Kobe said this in response to people worrying about the Lakers losing at home to the Houston Rockets in game 1.
“It’s not like it’s the end of the world,” he said. “We’re not the first team ever to lose a Game 1 at home, it’s just here in Los Angeles, people get pretty nervous.”

That’s all you got Mamba?!!? First off your team has been very choppy the entire playoffs THIS year, you got embarrassed and pushed around LAST year in the NBA Finals and you come out and say some crap like that?

Where is the hunger from trying to redeem yourself from last year, where is the fire to be the best in the game and to crush any unworthy opponents?

Through much research and analysis we here at Classic University have narrowed down the crucial issue of the Laker team. Before I get into my analysis, humor me and read this list of names of some of the players on the Los Angeles Lakers…


Is it any wonder the Lakers keep getting pushed around by tough teams? Is there any wonder why they seem to have no heart? That list of names sounds like a list of characters from a 90210 spinoff, not a tough NBA squad.

All the great teams had personality, they had character, they had heart, and they had that garbage man blue color player that set the tone. The Lakers of the 90’s had Kurt Rambis, Clark Kent was as tough as nails. The Detriot Pistons had Dennis Rodman, Bill Lambeer, aaaaaand Rick Mahorn, some of the toughest nastiest dudes to ever play the game.

The new Lakers toughest player is a dude named Sasha Vagin….I mean, Vujacic, who wears a headband his mother gave him to hold back his long pretty flowing hair. Please!!!

A Florida man has been charged with first-degree murder after authorities say he threw a 3-month-old boy out of a moving car on a Tampa interstate.

Police say infant Emanuel Murray died after his mother's ex-boyfriend threw him from a car on a Florida interstate.

Richard Anthony McTear Jr., 21, was arrested Tuesday, hours after a confrontation at his former girlfriend's apartment in which he snatched the child, the Hillsborough County sheriff's office said.

A passing motorist found Emanuel Wesley Murray's body on the interstate. An autopsy determined the child died of blunt trauma to the head, the county medical examiner's office said.
Video on CNN affiliate WFLA TV showed McTear being led out of a Tampa police squad car after his arrest. He ducked his head as TV cameras surrounded him on his walk into a police building.
When asked by reporters if he had thrown the child out of the car window, McTear answered, "It's a dirty game. A dirty game."

McTear is not related to the child, said sheriff's spokeswoman Debbie Carter.
Police had been called to his former girlfriend's apartment about 3:15 a.m. The mother, Jasmine Bedwell, 18, told investigators that McTear had hit her several times and threatened "to kill the both of y'all," the sheriff's department said in a statement announcing the charges.

McTear threw a car seat containing the child across the room during the fight, causing the boy to fall onto the apartment's concrete floor, investigators said. He then picked up the boy and drove off in his blue Chevrolet Impala, throwing the child out while on the interstate, the sheriff's department said.

I am so disgusted...I have no words.

Reuters reported….
A 50-year old Saudi man has agreed to divorce his 9-year-old bride, media reported on Thursday, after the marriage drew international criticism. The decision, reported by newspapers Alwatan and Al-Riyadh, came after months of court hearings, criticism from the United Nations and an international media frenzy about Saudi Arabia's human rights practices….

The child's mother, who opposed the marriage which took place when the girl was 8 years old, took the case to court last year. The court in the small town of Onaiza upheld the marriage on condition that the husband did not consummate it until the girl reached puberty…

In the case of the Onaiza child bride he said the judge could not order a divorce because the marriage contract was carried out according to established rules for marriage, which include the approval of the father. "When the child is under age the father can approve the marriage contract but as soon as the child reaches puberty she can object to the marriage," Al Modi said, emphasizing that it was merely a contract, signed to "secure her future."

He explained that in such cases the child usually remained in her parents' custody and her husband would be able to visit her. But he would not be permitted to live with her or consummate the marriage until she had reached puberty.
So what they are saying is this…

This 8 year old’s dad, excuse me, I should say her father, (because a real “DAD” would never agree contractually or otherwise to have his 8 year old daughter marry a 50 year old man), just pimped his 8 year old daughter out to an old pervert for some extra money to "SECURE HER FUTURE"!!

How can anyone live with themselves after doing something like this?

Come on RiRi!!!

Now don’t get me wrong, I am a huge Rihanna fan and was horrified by what Chris Brown did to her, but he obviously did more damage than people originally thought.

Rihanna obviously suffered some sort of brain damage from the abuse, which is the only excuse I can give for her wearing something like this.

I am going to give her a pass because the event she is attending is the "The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion" Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

You know what, forget that, there is still no excuse for her to look like an extra from a Robert Palmer Video, but she is NOT "simply irresistible" in that tux!!

To her credit, she still makes it look good, but….Get some help RiRi, a mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Liberate your face!

Have you been looking for that great conversation piece because you have trouble starting conversations? Well, wait no more!

In just 7 easy steps, you will be in all the conversations…but none of them will actually be WITH you, just about how crazy you look.

All 7 steps can be found here.

You can learn how to make yourself a ski mask so that you can liberate your face in cold weather.

Now you can out in public without having to worry about people thinking you might have criminal tendencies just because your face is hidden behind a ski mask.

Every one will treat you just like they normally do because they can recognize you, knowing that you are not just some creep walking down the street in a ski mask.

Nope, you will not look creepy at all. But before you go out, don't forget to brush your teeth.

Why Didn't I think of that?

If you are anything like me, (I seriously doubt, then you and your significant other hardly ever maintain the same body temperature.

One of you will be hot and other is cold or one is just right and the other sweating profusely.

Either way, this senario can make for some uncomfortable sleeping arrangements...until now!

Check out the new Kuchofuku Air Conditioned Bed.

So now you can turn the heat all the way up to keep her warm and still sleep as cool as the other side of the pillow!

Have to get one of these!

This Take a Seat by Dutch designer Jelte van Geest, This chair will follow you around when you in the library. See this fun video. You just swipe your library card in the front of the chiair, it will follow you wherever you go.

How classic is that?!?! Need a few of these for the Classic University Library.

Somebody needs consoling

That man you see in the picture is doing what I envision Tracy McGrady to be doing right now!! In the fetal position balled up in a corner crying and rocking back and forth. Why would I say that you ask?

Well think about this, Tracy McGrady, a 12 year veteran, has been the leader and best player on 2 different NBA teams for 9 of the 12 years he has been in the league. NONE of those teams have won a first round playoff series.

However this year the Houston Rockets (a 5 seed in the Western Conference) were having a decent year, that is until Tracy McGrady got hurt. After Tracy McGrady left the starting lineup to have surgery on his knee, the Rockets actually got better! The Rockets went from being counted out of the playoff race to being a 5th seed in the playoffs.

No big deal, that was a valiant effort, no one expected the Rockets to beat and very young and talented Portland Trailblazer team with home court advantage with out their best player. Most were satisfied with the effort. But the Houston Rockets with their best player watching in street clothes proceeded to do what Tracy McGrady was not able to do WITH them for 5 years, WIN A PLAYOFF SERIES!!

I don’t care who you are, that has to weigh heavy on your mind. That’s like the Lakers getting better with out Kobe Bryant, the Cavaliers getting better with out Lebron…NEVER!!

So why did the team win more games and a playoff series with out the so called franchise player? Just ask the man in the fetal position because he is thinking the same thing.


We have been watching sports at its best!!! The Chicago Bulls and Boston Celtics have been playing with a high level of hustle and a refuse to lose, never say die attitude. Even though the Bulls have 3 loses, I have enjoyed every minute of it.

I almost woke my entire household last night watching this game. The suspense in this entire series is better than any movie Steven Spielberg has ever done. Last night was no different.

Three overtimes, stubborn defense from both teams, old school hustle, great team play and more heart than a medical center’s cardiac wing!

One of my favorite plays last night was Bulls center Joakim Noah intercepting a frontcourt pass by Paul Pierce and then out dribbling him to the other end of the court for a three-point play that fouled out Pierce, set fire to the home crowd and helped put down the Celtics.

I also absolutely have to talk about the Mr. Cognac, Ray Allen. I call Ray Allen Mr. Cognac because Ray Allen is first-rate and sturdy yet there is no one smoother in the NBA. His shot is so effortless and pretty like a work of art and he dropped 51 on the Bulls last night.

Man I wish this was a 15 game series but it all has to end Saturday night with a game 7 in Boston. As bad as I want the Bulls to win, I honestly cannot see Boston losing that game at home but hey, this series has been full of surprises and suspense. Who knows what will happen but I cannot wait to see!!
