This past Sunday, David and I had a good ol’ movie marathon. I can’t think of a better way to spend a Sunday or a better person to spend it with.
We decided to watch Hayao Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli films. Spirited Away is one of my all time favorite films and since Miyazaki said his newest film, The Wind Rises will be his last, I thought it’s a great time for a retrospective.
Kiki’s Delivery Service (1989)
Princess Mononoke (1997)
I know a lot of people say this is one of the best anime movie of all time but I have to respectfully disagree. I felt like I was watching a bad play.
My Neighbor Totoro (1988)
Castle in the Sky (1986)
The Castle of Cagliostro
In 2008, Busta Rhymes (I know, I know, bear with me), came out with a song called “Arab Money”.
I would like to point out that while a few people in Islamic countries have a lot of money, 80-90% of people make less than $5,000 USD per year. So yes, Busta Rhymes, I guess you are getting “Arab Money”.
So this guy, gmpent, on instagram I’ve really taken an interest in. He posts various luxury items, you know, like Starbucks and Lululemon (hey, everyone knows how luxurious Starbucks is) and that’s pretty much his account in a nutshell, no family, no friends, not even pictures of himself. Just his credit cards.
And it’s all just a bit…weird.
Conspicuous consumption is rampant these days. So this guy is not original by any means, but the whole centurion card in the froyo is just…weird. It seems his entire life is just cars and two credit cards. Which is really really sad. And I am being so serious when I say every picture has his credit card in it. The credit card in the food is just gross. Do you realize all the places your credit card has been? The tables, counters and other germ-laden public places? And you put that right in your food. Yuck. Anything for Instagram, right?
Because nothing screams ‘nouveau riche’ quite like posing with your credit cards
So what is he trying to say? What is the goal of his account? I honestly don’t know. Perhaps to tell people he has a lot of money. If that’s the case, congrats gmpent! You have a lot of money. Maybe he’s unafraid of being robbed (remember what happened to Soulja Boy?). Or maybe someone should just buy him a proper wallet.
Perhaps this is all some weird joke that I, and a lot of other people, don’t get. If so, bravo gmpent!
A post on Kourntey Kardashian’s Instagram from a few weeks ago has been brought to my attention. Apparently this nellyperez86, has a seriously crazy grudge against Kourntey Kardashian. I’m not even sure what she’s going on about. So congrats nellyperez86, you win Crazy Person of the Week.
Stay tuned for a post on Celebrity Culture and Worship. Posts like these are almost unbelievable. I see stuff like this all the time on the Internet. Definitely warrants a blog post.
Have a good week guys!
Editors Note: No, I will not censor people’s usernames. It’s the Internet, anyone can find it. And if you put your crazy pants on be prepared for backlash.

*cough* speaking of positive black images in the media… What? There isn’t one here? Oh. Then never mind.
Antionio Cromartie, father of 12 and counting, has recently been interviewed about the state of the NFL pot ban, “”We’re just going to do it anyway,” Cromartie told interviewer Ashlee Ray on Thisis50.com, an entertainment website. “They just need to let it go. They need to go ahead and say, ‘Y’all go ahead, smoke it, do what you need to do.'” ESPN
You’re probably still at the part where Cromartie has 12 kids. I wish I was kidding. The kicker is, they’re by eight different women. Glossing over the complete idiocy of risking your health with random women, there is also ongoing financial obligations that comes with a child. Let alone 12. I actually feel bad for the kids. Not the moms, they knew what they were getting into (baby mama 1, 2 & 3 you maybe get a pass), but these children will never have the close relationship I have with my father. There’s no way with a lot of them living all over the country.
What I don’t understand is why these women wanted to be baby mama #X. I mean BM #7 & 8, what exactly did you gain? I’m sure the money you’ve received rivals only a week’s pay at McDonald’s. So what’s the point? Why risk your health and your life for someone that plays for the Jets? This ain’t the Patriots by a long shot. Why have a child who will never know their father on any deep level? One can only guess.
And Mr. Cromartie, at what point is 5 kids enough? Or 7? Or 10? At what point do you think to yourself, hmmm I already have 6 more kids than I can afford, I better use a condom…?
It’s one of life’s great questions. Instead of asking his position on weed. I wanna know what goes through his head when he gets into bed with someone. Would make for a much more interesting story.
Read this article.
No seriously. Read it.
And someone PLEASE explain to me why black people can never just be talented and deserving of something. It has to be a big todo. It has to be because they are black.
