News Peruse

You know how I do enjoy doling out digital television views,
So oblige me and enjoy ‘FOX & The BILL‘ in a short News Peruse:

The season premier of GLEE ran tonight
And yes – I was the Gleek’iest chic onsite.

I was jammin’
their version of Jay Z and Alicia Keys’ “NEW YORK” –
Arty continues to roll in as the banging hip hop sport – His capacity isn’t short.

I’d also have to say he did TRAVIE MCCOY more justice than fair
when he rolled out the rapping hook to the joint “BILLIONAIRE”.

Sunshine [Charice Pempengco] joined the cast of Glee and “found her own”.
She’s the young asian teen, whose voice sounds ‘soulfully black and grown’.

NEWS out of Atlanta is charging some pretty nasty wrongs
About teen boys being cohersed into sex with Pastor Eddie Long.
What’s really going on?

Time will soon tell…
and arse holes will smell.

More on Real Time’s Bill Maher
Because his LKL interview was on fire:

Bill Maher on President Obama [Democrats & whether people trust the government]

Larry states: A new CNN opinion research poll says 25% say they trust the federal government to do what is right – most of the time. What does that say Bill? “It says more people are trusting than should be. Considering what our government has done lately – but on the other hand the Democrats who have had a pretty successful legislative season don’t get credit for it. Because it hasn’t reached people yet – I mean, the big one is HEALTHCARE and as soon as it passed Obama went up in the poles because ‘people love a winner’ Larry. If Tiger Woods had come back and won The Masters he could have murdered those women. But you know it kind of faded because the benefits of the program haven’t been felt yet. And there was a report out today that said it really isn’t going to pay for itself“.

Larry inputs: But the car companies paid back their loans and they’re selling cars and so on… “Right and they also passed FINANCIAL REFORM and they eliminated the banks as the middle man for student loans, (which was long over due). The Democrats are very bad at selling their own product; The Republicans are genius’ at it and I’ve said it before” says Bill, “A bad product well apologized for — is superior in this country to a good product. The Democrats do have a better product as bad as they are. Now it’s unfortunate that they couldn’t have sold what they’re selling better and have better policies.

Afghanistan was a glaring error, I think. First of all Obama just should have had a different policy from the get go. He’s tied to it now, because he ran on it. He should have ran on a policy that said, ‘The Army is the wrong tool to use to fight terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan. Thank you – goodnight’. But now he’s tied to this dumb policy where we’re supposedly committed full force until like 8 months later, when we advertise that we’re pulling all of our troops out. I mean the Taliban have outlasted people for decades and centuries“.

Larry asks: Well how do you defeat terrorism? “You don’t“, Bill says, “That’s the key Larry, you don’t defeat it. You have to understand it’s always with us. It’s like saying how do you defeat crime? You can’t defeat crime“… Larry interjects Violent crime is down in America. “Down. Right and we’ve had terrorism go down. By the way Obama has been president for 20 months and there has not been an attack. Bush was president for 9 months when we got hit. So on that score – Obama’s kept us safer.”

But you’re saying there’ll always be terrorism? asks Larry. “ Of course. Especially when we do things like invade Muslim countries“. Should we not have called it a war on terrorism? says Larry, Because there will not be a victory day? Bill concurs, “ Exactly. We should not have called it a war on terrorism. There will not be a victory day. Exactly. And you know this war in Afghanistan— I never read a good thing about it. The longer we’re there the stronger the Taliban gets. I mean I read bad things about the government of Karzai, I read bad things about the Afghan Army, about the Afghan Police, I read bad things about our soldiers. Of course they’re put in an impossible situation and they’re doing the best they can – they’re very brave but 5 of them are now up for murder charges. I read horrible things about what ordinary people in that country do. They stoned a woman a couple of weeks ago for eloping. For the crime of eloping and this wasn’t just the Taliban. The whole village came out – even her own relatives. That’s got a hurt — a rock comes and it’s from your mom”.

Larry asks about Pakistan. How do we deal with them? “Well we’re not dealing with them“. Bill responds in a discerning voice, “What – you mean because they’re a Muslim country with nuclear weapons? Well that happens while we were trying to get the nuclear weapons that weren’t in Iraq out of Iraq. I think that genie is out of the bottle.

The same thing with Iran – you know we’re obsessed with Iran getting nuclear weapons. You know that’s like a father whose obsessed with his daughter losing her virginity. It’s going to happen. It’s going to happen and you’re going to have to live in a world where it does happen. To give a little perspective I was watching “Day After Tomorrow” [1983] – Do you remember that? It was a huge sensation at the time because we were in a cold war. It was about what would happen if the United States and the Soviet Union wiped each other off. It was chilling because – ofcourse in that era when a nuclear exchange took place it was between two super powers who emptied their arsenal and wiped out the world. We’re not living in that world anymore. Things are actually better. Could a terrorist get a nuke into the port of Los Angeles? Absolutely, but it would probably be just one bomb. As awful as that is. It’s not as bad as when two super powers were facing each other with arsenals”.

Stay tuned for Larry and Bills latest interview conclude,
I’m Qui
bidding you a Happy Hump Day and “Don’t be a Sue“. lol!
Oui!!! to GLEE!!! 🙂

ALL-STAR Weekend

In Griot, Music, Sports on February 15, 2010 at 12:56 pm

QE is a Fan of ALL of the STARS involved

At first glance one might think the headlining picture is of a Spartan. I beg of thee to look again, it’s actually Usher at the 2010 All Star Game. His leather 6-pack abs vest complete with pecs was strangely attractive. Okay – okay I have a leather fetish. lol! I own a few leather corsets that don’t “rip me up”, but they do bind my love handles quite nicely and Usher was well enhanced as he sang and danced in star mode like he always does.

The Cowboy Stadium is the Largest Dome Stadium to date and has the largest HD television in the world [11,500 feet ] – it comfortably accomodated 108,000 fans Sunday night. The City of Arlington, TX welcomed over 200,000 visitors over the weekend and lucratively enjoyed doing so; the spill over into Dallas, TX was RIDICULOUS! We loved it! Y’all Come Again.

The East Team went hard and The East Team WON!
But not even that could over shadow the half time fun:

Usher went hard and Shakira took the crowd
With her forward pelvic thrusting and her “she wolf howl”.

Her performance was a sexy wow that generated a lot of heat –
That is, until the piano was fired up and out came Alicia Keys.

We were feeling Alicia – no doubt. She melodically conveyed her art
But it didn’t get the All Star response it deserved –because she sang solely about NY.

We all love the NY song – folks around the world would certainly agree
But it almost seemed as if she were purposely “not acknowledging” the BIG D.
Oooo Weee.

When her intuition kicked in & told her with certainty that the crowd didn’t have her back
She changed the words to: “ALL STAR” in place of the word “NY” on her chorus track.

Oh Frack! We could see it in her face – she without a doubt knew
Underestimating the intelligence of the audience just wasn’t the thing to do.

Oh well – we still love her and the halftime show was still pretty good.
Sure we all love NYbut not as much as we love our own hood.

ALL STAR Entertainment is GLOBAL and should be geographically understood.
I’m Qui
And the weekends festivities went harder than wood.
…ie It was pretty good.
