          If Urkel and "Chocolate Rain" nerd tag-teamed a garden snake, and that snake had a combo of a bowel movement/ baby....it would look like Louis Farrakhan.

this piece of shit song:





nothing but top 40 SUCK.  this is what i expect to hear in j.c. penney when i'm trying on a pair of pants that are too small because i'm too fat and they don't have my size.

Most definitely a pair of dad jeans, then off to meet the wife at Starbucks, who just bought the kids matching osh kosh b'gosh overalls.

Sounds like he's firmly planted in the "douchebags with guitars" category, ala David Gray, Jason Mraz, and numerous other carbon copies of each other.  This is what passes for adult contemporary these days.

i'm sick of the ongoing glorification of tupac.  he was a degenerate animal who was good at speaking rhythmically into a microphone.  good for him.  he's dead and i don't care.

The "hologram" is supposedly going on tour.  I've heard it's not even a proper hologram.... Just a 2d image projected onto an ultra thin screen.

      I heard it on a local radio station that was gleefully celebrating his demise on Friday Sept 13, 1996. I've appropriated it ever since...

         I was more of a Geto Boys fan, they wuz my niggaz!

How can you not love a raw-ass rap group that had a gangster midget, and featured said midget with his shot-open eye-socket on one of their albums.  The real shit.

         You don't see those muthafuckas playing cops on "Law and Order" or hen pecked dads in "Are We There Yet", either.

    HA! Though O'Shea Jackson has yet to make any movie as good as "Encino Man"

              I think he gets his scripts out of Eddie Griffin's wastebuckets.

If I lived around there, I'd become a loyal fan of that host or station from that moment.
But how did that not become some national "scandal," with people getting fired and others marching and boycotting etc.?   You can bet it would today.   I don't remember hearing about it.

    Hard rock-centric WAAF in Worcester,MA was the station(Opie and Anthony were the drive time hosts at the time) it was actually a DJ with a name full of pathos.."Rocko" (recently deceased)and he was taking calls about Tupac's oh so tragic passing that night. There was quite a bit of schadenfruede on the airwaves that night...

          The key to avoiding a boycott? Do your outrageous bit on a low-rated station. WAAF was a weak signal at the time(hard to pick up in Boston), and the Internet was in it's relative infancy. Those factors kept them from getting into hot water.

Cutesy, Japanese-style video games that look like they were made in 1990.  Bleh.

i love tupac, biography and all. he was supported by local gangs and banned from the hustling life because the neighborhoods wanted him to succeed at rap. even though I like him and his music, i hate the hologram thing too.

May I present to you Katawa Shoujo?  It's a romantic/eroge game about cripples.  I'm dead serious.

Coming home from a job interview to find a rejection email... apparently sent DURING the interview.  ::)  lols

Ouch.  That would warrant a less than friendly response from me.  I remember interviewing with Levi, Ray and Shoup a decade ago and them sending a rejection letter (u.s. mail) the same day as the interview. But DURING the interview?  At least have the courtesy to wait a day so that you at least APPEAR to have THOUGHT about it a little.

They already had a candidate chosen (Uncle Bob) and were going through the motions according to some company HR policy.

I'm assuming it was some clock-related mishap. At least they bothered to tell me at all - fairly unusual these days.

My thoughts exactly.
 --  it's happened to me too, though I couldn't figure out how it was physically possible to actually get it sent out that fast.   The time it happened to me, I had submitted the application late on a Friday (just applied; no interview), and the rejection was at my house on Monday (and I mean postal mail), saying that the position had already been filled.
Thanks for jerking the rest of us around, assholes!
Nice credible imitation of "due consideration."

Regarding Tupac...

An oldie but goodie. A quote from a letter sent from PEZ Candy Inc., to sculptor Michael Durham in response to his suggestion:

"Thank you for your recent letter. Unfortunately our audience is geared to 3 to 6 year olds and therefore your proposal for the "Fallen Rapper PEZ" series would not fit into our criteria..."

I guess in this case, it's sort of a Bizarro World type of Forest Gump. Death is like a box of chocolates.

The site shows the rapper PEZ prototypes in various stages of development, as well as a copy of the letter.
