Black Thought Says: I Told You So – Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston Split After Campaign Fades

So, I’m on a blogging break, but I can’t help but say I told you so!

On September 28, 2008, Black Thought wrote, and I quote (myself):

Ever noticed all you ever heard was Palin saying “Bristol and the young man she will marry.” You never heard the “young man” say he was going to get married.

He doesn’t want to, and he won’t if McCain-Palin loses.

If he did, he would have a while ago.

Of course, he might just do it if they win. The White House is a lot more fun than Alaska.

Just a prediction (link)

Its sometimes just so nice to be so right.

And I’m back to my blogging break, so satisfied.

Housing Crisis Vindicates Guy Who Still Lives With Parents

Lol . . .

OKLAHOMA CITY—In a year that saw a record number of mortgage defaults and home foreclosures, part-time landscaper Ben Foster, 34, was publicly vindicated in his bold decision, made back in the spring of 1996, to continue living with his parents. “It’s like I’ve been telling my buddies for eight to 12 years now: ‘Why get in over your head before you’re ready?'” (continue reading)

Where is Coolio Now?

So, a few weeks ago I featured Coolio on Black Thought’s Sunday Electric Relaxation.

A few days later I thought, whatever happened to Coolio?

The answer is sort of horrifying:

The levels of hell for a 15-minute celebrity vary greatly from level to tepid level. At the top, a failed celebrity appears on Dancing With the Stars. Next, his or her own reality show on VH1. Below that, a cameo in a comedy film. Moving further down, a video series on YouTube. On the next layer, the celebrity is ironically used in an Internet prank. Finally, the lowest of levels is having a video series on YouTube nobody apparently watches. Enter rapper and exile of “Gangster’s Paradise” Coolio, who can now lay claim to living in that last level, as he has a not-watched-a-lot cooking show on YouTube. (continue reading)

However, there may be some hope for our friend Coolio.  Last month his new show, Coolio’s Rules, debuted on the Oxygen Channel.  The channel’s description of the show says:

In the premiere season of “Coolio’s Rules,” we see what life is like for a not-so-average family. Rapper Coolio tries to balance his role as a musician, a bachelor looking for love, an entrepreneurial caterer, and a single parent raising four teenagers (Artisha 20, Brandi 20, Artis 18, and Jackie 15). But as Coolio quickly finds out, teenagers have their own way of doing things, and his irreverent methods of discipline sometimes cause more problems than they solve. The Coolio household is full of pitfalls that demand his attention and threaten to derail his business plans. (link)

That . . . does not sound interesting to watch, but hopefully, somehow it is.

Well, if none of these ventures work out, there is his upcoming book:

In 2008, Coolio is set to release a book of ‘gourmet ghetto’ recipes following the success of his culinary webisodes, Cookin’ with Coolio (link)

Lesson being, enjoy your fifteen minutes of fame.

Global Warming?

The catch to the warming, is the cooling. And ahhh . . . it’s a little chilly out there.

Notice the temperature in northern Florida.

Which, brings us to Bush:

QUESTION: I know you’ve said you are not planning to see Al Gore’s new movie, but do you agree with the premise that global warming is a real and significant threat to the planet?

BUSH: I think it’s — I have said consistently that global warming something is a serious problem. There is a debate over whether it’s manmade or naturally caused. We ought to get beyond that debate and start implementing the technologies necessary to enable us to achieve a couple of big objectives. One, be good stewards of the environment, and two become less dependent on foreign sources of oil for economic reasons and for national security reasons. (link)

Thus, according to Bush there is a debate.

I wish that President Bush would walk outside. I’m colder than I have ever been in November.

Will Ferrell’s Bush impersonation makes me feel a little warmer inside though.
