The Friday Off-The Wall Blog

Oh, so this is what it's like to be in a good mood on a Friday. Cool, I like it. A good week of class, personally I'm revitalized mentally; and now it's time to go drinkin' this weekend and complete a positive seven day period! So why keep waiting. The Happy Friday Topics:
  • Good story to start the week when Illinois Senator Barack Obama began preliminary paper work in his quest for Presidency in 2008. This country is in need of change and Barack is the type of politician that rekindles my interest and faith in the political system. I for one, will vote for him. The question lies within others. Can the simple minded look past the color of his skin? Can his perceived lack of experience cost him in the eyes of voters? Only time will tell.
  • As an avid Facebook person, I found (and joined an interesting group.) As a Bears fan, I've been told by media giants that I'm un-American for not cheering for the Saints this weekend and that not cheering for Drew Brees and Co. is unethical. I understand that Katrina did horrible things to New Orleans that I wouldn't wish on my own most personal enemy but it's a football game. I think if the people down there (and I'm talking from the big wigs down south, to the big wigs in D.C.) helped the rest of the Louisiana area as much as they've helped the football team and the stadium and downtown....the NOLA would be in a lot better shape! And we know the NFL doesn't want to be named in the same sentence as the word rigged, but if the Saints do win, all bets are off. With all that said, Go Bears!
  • From Vallejo, CA. A cell phone apparently ignited in a man's pocket and started a fire that burned his hotel room and caused severe burns over half his body, fire department officials said. Damn people and their hi-tech, new fangled cell phones. Later, investigators have thrown out that theory, attributing the fire to a flame not being put out properly. Damn phones get hot, what are ya gonna do?
  • From the department of "here comes the apocolypse" comes this story about resident whore Paris Hilton. Paris is supposedly trying to get serious about her acting career. *Let me stop right here and say that Paris' best acting is done on her back.* Back to the story, she's going to be starring in a movie called "The Hottie and The Nottie," a story in which Hilton's character claims she won't get married until her not-so-hot friend gets married. Wow, Hollywood is desperate for new and original scripts. If you think that's bizarre, check out the story here where Paris declares sex as sacred. And by 'scared' she means only to be performed for money on camera. Or the story about her wanting kids after hanging out with new gal pal Britney Spears (who reportedly might be pregnant guess this time is that the baby's daddy is resident assclown Brandon Davis.) Oh gosh, that's just scary!
THE FRIDAY FIVE. Five songs in heavy rotation in my I-Pod this week.
  1. This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arm Race by Fall Out Boy
  2. Through The Glass by Stoned Sour
  3. Ridin' Overseas by Chamillionaire featuring Akon (yet another Ridin' Dirty Remix)
  4. Before He Cheats by Carrie Underwood (also known as a potential future wife)
  5. *Go Too Far* by Jibbs featuring Melody Thornton of The Pussy Cat Dolls
THE FRIDAY FIVE PT. 2 (Old School Edition)
  1. Parents Just Don't Understand by Will Smith (when he was known as The Fresh Prince)
  2. Wanna Be Starting Something by Michael Jackson
  3. *Let's Wait A While* by Janet Jackson
  4. OPP by Naughty By Nature
  5. Shoop by Salt-n-Pepa
*Denotes Lu's Extra Point: On Jibbs (of Does Your Chain Hang Low? fame) album, there's a song, Go Too Far, which features Melody Thornton of the Pussy Cat Dolls. The thing about the song is this. It's basically a song promoting abstinence (which I have no problem with) and on top of that it samples Janet Jackson's (I know, hold your laughter) abstinence theme Let's Wait Awhile. I just see something wrong with a member of the Pussy Cat Dolls who did songs like Don't Cha, Pushin' On My Buttons, etc. singing a song...let alone singing the sampled hook...that promotes abstinence. Maybe it's just me. Enjoy peeps!
