Just been feeling blah, rather jdid actually. Didn't even have the energy to properly criticize the Top model gals. Good thing too cause I wake up this morning with a lil ting deyso coming out on my face next to me nose. Imagine how much worse it could be if I had diss the gal whose face was peeling. LOL
Its finally warming up here. We went from the - temps to the 6s and 7s and apparently there was a 14 or 15 thrown in there the other day too but now its raining. I aint complaining, I'll take rain over snow any day and the snow on my lawn has finally melted or been washed away. Amen.
Johnny Cochrane died the other day. Rest in Peace Johnny. Rappers, Black sportsmen and black entertainers throughout North America must be bawling their eyes out right about now. Who's going to defend us when we do dumb ish? lol. Rappers must now straighten up and fly right because what was the first news you hear after Johnny dead? C -Murder's appeal get turn down. Dey aint even wait till Johnny cold to jack up a yout. Cuhdear. Mind you if your name is C-Murder and you charged with murder if I am a judge then you already starting out behind the count just for having that name. That is why if they ever charge me for anything and send me to court I making sure one of my aliases is "C-Not Guilty Your Honor".
Terry Shiavo dead. I aint even going to link to her story. I didn't see why it had to be such big news personally. She was in a coma for years, her husband said she was as good as dead so pull the plug, the family disagreed. In my opinion its just an exaggerated family squabble with the inlaws no need for all the CNN coverage. If my wife in a coma my inlaws can do whatever dem want wid she doah, me not gettin into nun a dat drama. I would tell them straight, I argue wid wunna enough when she was living so I aint arguing wid wunnah now she in a coma. :-)
Now the Pope on his death bed. Wow! I wonder how much longer he will last. Not being callous here but I don't know if you've followed the Pope and illness because for the last 4 or 5 years it has appeared as if he has one foot in the grave. I remember about 2002 or 2003 there was this big youth rally for Catholics from all over the world and the Pope was here. He looked really fragile then and I was just afraid that the man was going to come to Toronto and die here. Anyway I know the Pope's not going down without a fight. So lets see what happens next.
Oh and did you guys know that an African priest is in the running for next Pope? Oooh I just had a bad vision of a Roman Catholic next pope (RCNP) reality tv show. Sacrilege! I'm going to hell for that thought! But hey the way reality tv is going these days it could happen.
Anyway yep this African guy Francis Arinze is in the running for Pope. In 2003 they were calling him the top candidate now they are saying some Italian guy is the top candidate. I don't think Pope John Paul wants to die until he see him move down to number 3. Ok lets be real now. We aint getting no black Pope. Come on now. If punks online are getting pissed because Mos Def got a white dude's role in the Hitchhiker's guide to the Galaxy movie out this summer (big up Moistworks for the link) imagine how riled up people would be about a Black Pope. Think about it! (Personally I don't even think the Mos Def role pays up for the Cold Mountain role that they gave to Renee Zelweigger the other day)
The prison riot thing in Barbados seems to be under control now. One guy died on Wednesday after the riots and the fires flared up again. I'm just wondering where they are going to be housing these prisoners until a new jail is built. They were talking about putting them at the National Stadium but to me that's just madness. Why? Several reasons:
- The National Stadium is the easiest place in Bim to get into or out of. I know so many youth that scale dem walls at Interschool sports its not even a joke.
- The perimeter real real big so you would need alot of guards to defend it.
- Its big and open and is a place where you go to run and jump. I don't think you really want to have prisoners thinking constantly about running and jumping.
- Its like the coldest place in Barbados at night and sometimes during the day as the winds come whistling in off Waterford Bottom. I would riot just to warm up from the cold of that place.
Hey did I ever tell you guys about the time I got hit with the dart in my head just outside the Stadium? Was a teenager coming home from a Carifta meet one summer night and just walking down the street outside the stadium when I heard a quick soft whistling sound and all of a sudden I just felt something hit me in my head and give me a sharp pain. Touched my head to find a flipping dart embedded in my skull. No joke! Some little kid had been playing with darts outside. I was so blasted vex but at the same time really glad that he hadn't hit me in the eye. Taking the dart out was rather painful too but I took it out swore a bit and walked away with a handkerchief to my bloody head. Couldn't really do anything else, it wasn't my area and I was alone and it loked like his family had all just gathered waiting for me to do something stupid like try to start something. So I said no permanent damage done and just walked away to catch the bus.
Hmm mild trauma to the head maybe that's when I started going crazy.
Oh well. Lastly test cricket started yesterday. West Indies vs South Africa. A depleted West Indies without stars like Lara, Sarwan and Gayle. Well as I duz tell everybody no one man bigger than anything. Same way work will get done if you or I quit or dead is the same way West Indies cricket can go on without Lara so don't feel that he name West Indies cricket. He may be great but if he cant play or isn't allowed to play West Indies cant just cower up and say cricket dun cause Lara not here. Its not like when ya is a chile an one fella bring the bat and balls and when he get out he gine tek dem up an go home. No star everybody at test level got dem own gear so Windies cricket just will go on with what we have.
Anyway that's it for now. Hope everyone having a great day.
