"Never trust a big butt and a smile..."

Words to live by. Bell Biv Devoe reunited on Jimmy Fallon last night, of course backed by The Roots. Is there anything that The Roots cant make even more awesome?

Once seen, Cee Lo's Grammy performance of "The song otherwise known as Forget You" can not be the best way possible.*

*Just ignore that blonde woman that comes in about half way through.

The Great Thaw: The Great Debate Continues

There is great debate among the citizens of Chicago over the validity of "dibs", and things are getting even more heated (heh) now that the mercury has risen above freezing and the mountains of white stuff have started to melt. Just how long should you be allowed to claim "dibs"?

I dont feel that I'm really entitled to an opinion since I dont own a car, but here are my Dad's rather entertaining thoughts on "dibs":

"I'm torn... In one respect I concur with the comment; "Dibs is silly". All those little chairs in the streets... I mean really people... On the other hand; if I've worked damn hard to clear a spot - how could somebody think they can come along and take advantage of it? It's really just flat out stealing in a sense.

So accordingly, I've come up with a solution... NO PARKING ON SNOW DAYS! Period! Many cities do it, and it seems to work fine. And I don't care where or what size street either. If it's going to need to be plowed, don't park it there. If you don't have someplace to park it, either find a place or don't have it. For Christ sakes already, you live in a city! You don't really need a car in the first place! Even my daughter lives in a city and is smart enough not to own one. If you can afford to own a car, you should also be able to afford a place to put it.

So, it's just this simple. If you do choose to park in the street on a snow day - the plow-man gets 2 options. Either 1) push it out of the way, or 2) just bury it. I have no sympathy either way, because you also have the option of living somewhere else! So move on already people... and please take those little chairs with you.

The Heat Is On

So the Grammy Awards are on Sunday. I know a lot of us music snobs view the Grammys as a joke--an abomination to real musicians, but it's still a huge honor for artists. Tonight as Tankboy and I DJ Tankster Night at The Burlington, I will attempt to sort through the crap and play a lot of the artists we enjoy that deserve the recognition (plus some music inspired by several viewings of Beverly Hills Cop)!

See you there!

May you have plenty of salt, bread, milk, and of course ice cream for the impending snowmageddon.
