China Olympic Grammar Errors – Part 3

8 08 2008

China Welcomes Y’all for Coming!!. Today is 8/8/08. The long awaited Olympic just kicked off few minutes ago in China. But to our surprise, there are some serious issues that are still plaguing Chinese Olympic villages. Despite the fact that we have been sounding this warnings for months (see part 1 and part 2), it’s disappointing that COPO (Chinese Olympic Planning Organization) are not fully organized in their language skills.

Many public signs (examples below) erected are full of errors. Unfortunately, the world is in China now. Any attempt to remove these misleading signs now would bring more embarrassment. Since we don’t complain without giving solutions, we would suggest that English speaking visitors over there should help to correct or graffitize the errors, especially if you are from South Bronx like me.

Happy Olympic!

Unwanted VA Beauty Becomes New York Queen

22 07 2008

This is a typical classic case of “one man’s garbage is another man’s treasure.” Obviously New York has good eyes for beauty than other cities in America. It is widespread seeing small-town hotties making it big, beyond their widest dream, after settling in New York. Leigh-Taylor Smith is a 22 yrs Virginia native who moved to Manhattan after losing some beauty contests in Virginia, for two consecutive years. Within a year in New York, she was crowned “Miss Brooklyn” last February. And yesterday, she won the State Crown for “Miss New York.” Not too bad for perhaps a village girl who relocated to NY last year. She’s vowed her next win would be Miss U.S.A, a title held by another small town girl, Tara Conner from Kentucky.

As this fate unfolded, many Virginians are proud of her. So exited they are that a major news headline in Virginia exclaimed: She’s from here!! She’s from here!!! Yeah right! losers; after you dumped her? But Ms Smith might not be getting too much love from many New Yorkers. There has been some residency issue since she won Miss Brooklyn. Luckily, she’s not an illegal alien; otherwise, some people could have asked for her deportation right away. Brooklynites had legitimate reason to beef on this. Why would they swallow the fact that someone who lives in Manhattan, another borough, and for less than a year could take away their crown just like that?  At the time, Ms. Smith couldn’t understand what the ado and hatred is all about. She once said: “I can’t believe all the ‘controversy’ of me taking the title back to Manhattan, I really didn’t expect it.” She told a Brooklyn news outlet.

The Brooklyn organizers came to her defense and issued a statement that they allowed outsiders to participate because there wasn’t enough interested candidates from Brooklyn. – OK, that is a lame excuse for the birds because I have seen better looking women in Brooklyn. – So what happened that this same lady went on to win the State title? Here is another reason from an executive of the New York pageant: “contestants must meet one of three prerequisites constructed by the Miss America Association: have permanent residency, be a full-time student or a full-time employee.”

That said, so out of sixteen contestants across the state of New York, there weren’t enough beautiful chicks? Or could we say because of the huge population here, native NY beauties have melted in the crowd that only  out-of-state hottie would stand out of many heads? Are we really looking closely enough? In my view, these successful non-NYKers (girls) have unparallel swagger that beats most NY beauties hands down. So, the judges must have been impressed by the girl’s attitude – that alone can make any lady stand out from a “sea of beauties.”

Hence, it’s no surprise that some city politicians, such as Anthony Weiner, want to enact laws that would allow easy flow of foreign beauties into New York show/fashion industry.  My advice to New York gals is: Polish Your Swagger!! Notwithstanding, I still love my NY girls; they are fun to be with and I wouldn’t trade them for some beautiful “country pumpkins.”

A Prostitute Notoriety & Her Very Proud Mother

12 07 2008

“Like mother like daughter!” As if the nude pictures of her daughter circulating over the internet isn’t enough, Carolyn Capalbo had been seen couple of times, since the sex scandal, exposing her own body [too] in public domain. Apparently, she is displaying herself for would-be johns for hire.

The most recent “ass-display” was in Atlantic City. Hooker Ashley Dupre (left inset), who brought down former governor of New York, was spotted with her  very proud mother (right inset) almost butt-naked [creating traffic jam?].  In NY Post, the mother was bragging to a reporter that her daughter is heading to LA [for a TV contract]. Meaning one bad girl is rising to stardom at another man’s peril; and the parent is showing off her slut-child’s ill-gotten accomplishment.

The nature of her cable show is being compared to Tila Tequila’s, which I think is absurd, an unfair media analysis because, unlike Ashley, Tila is no whore in any sense. Any TV show from Ashley Dupre, if any thing, would be an ill of the society. What other skill does she have other than getting laid for dough. Her show probably would teach teenage girls how not to go college and make money by sleeping around with men. In essence, it is like telling girls it’s okay to be streetwalkers and famous for it. Is this world really fair? While many ladies go to school and work hard to be somebody, here is media, MTV, and some hungry productions such as Handprint Entertainment reward an infamous call-girl with a TV contract? It’s sickening, really.

The wish of every parent is for his or her child to grow, get a decent career, and live a responsible life. No one wants his/her offspring to be famous for prostitution, at least not publicly. But for Carolyn Capalbo, she appears to love every bit of it: she’s been using every minute of her daughter’s fame. She claims how good and sweet her daughter is. Despite the notoriety, her little girl is still an angel who can never be blamed for engaging in “sex for pay.”

The issues here is Ashley Dupre lost her $4 K per night job – clearly grounded with no stellar skills to get a standard job. Then she tried to sue GirlsGoneWild and parties for money, but to no avail. So in such situation, she would be desperate for money in order to maintain her lifestyle. And the best option is to turn her notorious fame into a cash cow. Of course, ‘mum’ would be happy since some bucks would surely pass on to her. We’d see how the show goes.

Quote of the day:

“I think it’s unfair that men put laws on a woman’s body, I think a woman has a right to choose with her own body. I mean, I don’t think prostitution is a career. But maybe [it is] a little steppingstone.” —- Heidi Fleiss

Tommy & Pamela: A Disgusting Marriage Model

2 07 2008

Feminists would argue that “what’s good for the goose is good for  the gander.” But when it comes to women sexing around, that rule shouldn’t be applicable. It’s a serious moral issue, especially when kids are involved, but not for Pamela Anderson.

Celebrities, by default, are the most salacious animals of humankind – with their druggy and pornographic lifestyles available for public consumption. Who are you going to blame in this tabloidly paparazzi-infested society? Lewd exposure of stuff that should be private abounds every where. CelebX sleeping with celebY and celebXX doing it celebYZ. Who really cares about what horny celebrities are doing except that they overdo it under the magnifying lenses of media jackals.

Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson’s marital-orgy is a ro-ro (roll-off, roll-on) which reignited again after years of divorce with back-to-back relationships with various sex partners. In the Rolling Stones Magazine, Lee said: “Pamela and the kids have moved in with me, it’s awesome, man. It’s definitely working. You can tell on the kids’ faces – they’re happy.” Of course, the kid would be happy. But that is not the full story behind the reunion, Mr. Lee. “We do it for the kids” is a cliché better saved for stuck-on stupid married couples. What would happen when the kids become adults and leave home. Break up again?

Lee-Anderson’s relationship exemplifies a real messed-up affair which has no moral value especially for their kids. Here is a lady who, during her first divorce, got involve with five men (there could be more), married two of them and divorced in sequence. Now she is back with her first beau. Her “tasted Johns” include estate developer Laurence Hallier, actor Stephen Dorff,  model Marcus Schenkenberg, singer Kid Rock, and Rick Salomon whose only major accomplishment is the porno tape he co-starred with Paris Hilton. I doubt if Tommy Lee had much luck in getting laid as his wife during the course of their break-up.

If there is any pain for a man in Tommy Lee’s situation, it is psychological. Men are neither wired like women nor could stand their women being banged by other men. Making it worse for Lee, Pamela’s sexcapes were well publicized. It would have boosted the man’s pride or overlooked if she did her thing privately. Tommy Lee really looks like a wimp right now. It is like saying is okay for married couples to divorce, sleep around with various partners for few years and then renew their marriage again.

Apparently despite his rock-star status, Tommy Lee is not a man of sexual ego or prowess. It’s no surprise that Pamela once said she is yet to meet a man who had it all sexually. Physically, Pamela Anderson hasn’t been all that dented with her free-for-all sex galore. But mentally, Tommy Lee would have to deal the s#*t she brought from ex-flames. She could say she carries nothing over from these men, but on a man’s mind it would be there.

It is this type of thought that wouldn’t let most men take back adulterous women. How can I knowingly take back a woman who has been decked – not by one motherf*rk@r but many? Please…there are “plenty of fish” – fresh ones: legally blondes with naturally endowed breasts, including virgins.

Ice T hit Soulja Boy: State of Rap not in ‘Ice Age’

26 06 2008

Isn’t it dumb for legendary Ice T, 49, who built a solid reputation in two decades, to ignite flames that could melt him? Or is Ice (T) too cold lately (being a retired rapper) that he thinks the best way to heat-up is to start a brawl with a hot rapper, Soulja Boy, 17? In what appeared to be (another) brewing rap-war between generational-gapped rappers: ‘old school’ Ice T accused ‘new school’ Soulja Boy of single-handedly killed hip-hop – in reference to Soulja Boy’s super-man lyric which Ice T dismissed as garbage. And then he told the boy to “eat a dick.” In entertainment industry where beefing between rappers has become a means to huge record sales, one who have thought that rivalry with fresh-face Soulja Boy would come from some new generation rappers but iconic rapper like Ice T.

No doubt, Ice T got it made even before Soulja Boy was born. And he (Ice T) bragged he is not looking for money – because he has all the money he could make. True, his success can not be disputed with eight albums and over thirty films under his belt; he is surely a force to reckon with in entertainment world. But it’s a colossal error for him to dis a rising artist like Soulja Boy. Among many reasons why “Ice” shouldn’t have melted so low are:

  • The two rappers are generations apart – 32 years difference is no joke. What worked in hip-hop during Ice T’s music career peak [hip-hop’s “Ice Age”] does not work nowadays, and vice versa.
  • Ice T should have been a mentor to the boy. Why not call the teenager and give advice instead of ranting him out publicly on YouTube.
  • For the fact that Soulja Boy was nominated for 2008 Grammy, Ice T, a music vet, should have known better the kid’s s#*t is tight – i.e. Soulja has huge following, at least among the youths, which could solidify him as a future mainstream rapper.
  • Ironically, Ice T is like “a ‘pot’ calling ‘kettle’ black.” Throwback, he helped pioneer raunchy lyrics mixed with gangster rap that glorify guns violent and degrade women. So on moral ground, little Soulja Boy beats Ice T.

The reasons list could go on. My view does not mean I am a fan of Soulja Boy, as I am too old for his lyric. Needless to say, I have Ice T’s music collection but none of Soulja Boy’s. I’m analyzing from Ice T fan’s standpoint which I am, but no too deeply. Ice T, a retired rapper who is now a full-time Hollywood actor should know that there would always be audience for any kind of music: good, shitty, cheesy or whatever. Music entertainment is a big pie, so to speak; and creative artists would always get their bites. Saying one rapper killed hip-hop is an understatement. Soulja Boy re-innovates hip-hop to his own style; otherwise his music wouldn’t be exploding. Word up!!

Think U’re Fat? Check this out: Big-bone and Sexy!

18 06 2008

If you feel insecure about the your “extra poundage” you may need to reconsider. I just received pix from someone who simply said: “I will never complain about my thighs again as long as I live…” Well, I think there are too much ado about people being overweight. Who cares! as long as the person affected feels good about him or herself. In fact, some of the happiest and most bubbling people I’ve ever known are fat; and my sister is one of them. She is the only fat person in the family and the most fascinating one. She loves to party and her gorgeous attires usually make her the envy of so-called slim-girls. Although, my sister is not as big as the lady in the pictures, but she reminds me of her outgoing personality. She would grab the mic at any opportunity and make her self the center of attraction.

For all ‘thick’ ladies, the point here is that: there are some circumstances in life that you might not be able to control. No one can judge you based on your weight or your appearance, without your permission. If people see being fat as your weakness, you owe it to yourself to prove them wrong. That is, turn what they see as weakness into your greatest strength. However, if being heavy compromises your health, I would suggest you shed that kilo. If there is no eminent risk, tell the naysayers to ‘take a hike’ and enjoy your blessed self – it’s God-given. If Monique can build her brand around “thick madam,” why can’t you?

How To Tell Your Girlfriend She’s Fat





Cameron Diaz, P Diddy: ‘D’ Beauty playing with ‘D’ Beast

9 06 2008

This past week, the Media buzzed about Cameron Diaz’s latest companion who happened to be a ‘playa’ we all know too well. The dude born “Sean Combs” aka “Puff Daddy” aka “Bad Boy” aka “P. Diddy” aka “Sean John” aka what next…? – Phew!!! I’m having headache here. If a guy can have numerous aliases in his life time, then you need to wonder who this guy really is or just conclude that he is man of different characters.

Consequently, it would only be logical for someone like Diddy to thrive on varieties. Some people would say: So what? “Variety is the spice of life.” But variety could be a self-centered and exploitation behavior of seducing women, especially when a music mogul like P.Diddy is involved. Borrowing wisdom from John McCain’s book, “Character is Destiny,” It could be better said that “Character is Integrity.” Undoubtedly, P. Diddy must have gotten integrity in his business dealings otherwise he wouldn’t have been so successful. However, he has “zero integrity” as far as “love deals” are concerned.

Throwback, P. Diddy and his cohort, the late Notorious B.I.G. aka Biggie, had lifestyle patterns of being circled by groupies [2 smartest-ass groupies of such encounters are Lil Kim and Faith Evan; both of whom made it big; thanks to Biggie]. Just as B.I.G. was allegedly dating the two aforementioned ladies simultaneously, he had a baby-mama which some claimed to be his common law wife.

This same approach has been a norm for P. Diddy who fathered two children from two different women [ex groupies? Possibly!], while having affair with Jennifer Lopez (J. Lo). When J. Lo became bygone, the Bad Boy was back cripping with one of his baby-mamas, Kim Porter. Two more babies, he was out on the street again looking for more lame chicks. Since his newest babies were born, there has been many reports of him romancing some ‘white chicks’ on the French Riviera and God knows where else… It was also buzzed that there are other faceless jump-offs includes his protégé turned singer, Cassie. And the most recent hi-profile babe attempt before Diaz was Eddie Murphy’s quickie wife, Tracey Edmonds.

Therefore, how in this world could Cameron Diaz hook with P. Diddy? If nothing else, the Bad Boy appellation is enough to make any woman [in her right sense] to run for the hills. If the Diddy-Diaz love-affair materializes, it could be the same old factors of ‘money’ and ‘power’ which can draw even A-listers women to suboptimal men. P. Diddy is what he is. Old habits of womanizing don’t die easily, and many times they never did. In my view, P. Diddy is not slowing down anytime soon in his escapades. He is out to taste very “woman race” on the surface of this planet. He had black Latino, and white chicks. It is only a matter of time before he goes hunting for some ‘Asian’ and ‘Eskimos’ chicks.

As for Cameron Diaz, the best way not to have a broken heart is not to expect anything much from a “rolling stone” like P. Diddy. Hey Cameron, “they say half bread is better than none.” So have fun baby, while it lasted and dust off your skirt when it is over; pretend as if it never happened.
