What's Going On?

Am I the only one thinking that these Hennessey ads featuring Marvin Gaye are a little distasteful. The ones I've seen in Columbus are featured prominately in the Chicken District (5th Ave. and Summit where there is a Church's, Popeye's and KFC within walking distance from one another) and on Morse Rd., going east before you hit Easton. In case you didn't know, Gaye was a cocaine addict and suffered from paranoia and attempted suicide several times before his father killed him in April 1984. According to what I've read, Marvin pushed his father to the edge, an argument escalated and he was shot by his alcoholic father. Now, this surely isn't the image I think marketing folks should associated with urban alcohol markets...or maybe I'm just being overly sensitive.

Busta Rhymes cut his locs (no photos yet, but this is a link to a short video clip of him cutting them off). AJ formerly of 106 & Park cut his locs, and looks kind of hot now. Even SugaRay cut off his locs. So I was just talking to my friend Dii, who rocks some cute Lauryn Hill-type locs, about when people know it's time to cut their locs. I've had several of my friends cut their locs in the past three years or so. I'm always shocked, but other dreadheads sympathize, saying stuff like "yeah, it was time for him/her to cut'em though." So how does it work that you know when you are ready to cut your locs. And what about people who say they will never put shears to their heads...are cutting off locs disrespectful?

I know Thanksgiving is over, and I should really be over this. But I've been up at night, tossing and turing over this and I guess I need to let the Ghetto decide. TURDUCKEN. Now, my blogger buddy Quel touched on this before the holiday, but then I seen southern cook Paula Deen actually make one T-Giving morning. Now, for those who don't know. Turducken is when greedy people turn into mr. Wizard and fold turkeys, ducks and chickens into one another and cook it up. I just don't understand the concept of using one month of meat in one meal. I'm nowhere southern, so this creation is way out of my comfort level. Okay, I think I'll be able to sleep tonite.

Nick and Jessica broke up. Are we surprised? HELL YES! Dingbats like Jessica Simpson are my only hope that a man will take me in and guide me toward not losing my keys, socks, shoes and everything else I own. Despite the afro, I am totally blonde (got a little Clueless on you, there). And if Jessica could land a smart guy despite her...hair color...then I could too. Well, I guess the fact that he was allegedly cheating on her, in Columbus, Ohio, could have caused the breakup. I was convinced that their love was forever...give me a minute...

My mood today: Somewhere between When Will You Call by Bilal and Fuck It (I Don't Want You Back) by Eamon. A chick is a little heartbroken, okay!

My hair: Is about to get twisted...I can't take the fro in the winter...it get's so dry!

Word for the day: Dandruff. This has nothing to do with my hair by the way. Try using it in a sentence today! Example: I am so sick of dandruff ass niggas jumping from one girl to the next.

that Hennessey had is disgraceful--you need to start a letter-writing campaign and who gave permission for Marvin Gaye's image to be used posthumously to sell liquor?

I wonder who owns the rights to Marvin Gaye's image? It's unfortunate they sold it for that type of use. Nick & Jessica are fools.

Those Marvin Gaye ads are pretty bad, I agree. But in reference to the "Chicken District," don't you mean 5th & Cleveland, not 5th & Summit? Not much chicken that I can think of on Summit.

My bad D, that's the outskirts of the Chicken District. You correcting folks like the true writer you are!
