Americans are stupid! Overwhelmingly so, in fact. It is no surprise that Bush is pushing the 700$B bailout just to saddle Obama with the near trillion dollar debt. And if he should lose to McCain - big surprise! - McCain will have a plan to fix that - a plan that went into planning right about the same time the plan to break the banks went into effect.

My God how can we …..wait, you thought the bank failures happening in the last year of Bush’s office was just a coincedence?

[insert long awkward pause]

None of this should be news to anyone. I mean this is America afterall. So while they protest and bitch and complain there are those in other parts of the world wondering: if Americans can pull 700$B out of their ass to help banks and such, then why do their Christian churches only spend a dollar a day to feed a starving African child?

The Clone Wars Crapola

I’ve avoided this because I didn’t want to start a thing. But I’m not sorry |-|. George has gone insane :crazy:. In case you have not heard “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” is coming out tomorrow. It’s supposed to tell the story that “The Attack Of The Clones” did not, or more specifically “The Revenge Of The Sith(which was a really bad movie, in terms of story and plot). I am the only person, a true Star wars fan, who actually liked “The Phantom Menace“. Simply because it was original and it brought back the Star Wars magic, to a point (Midi-chlorians…COME ON!!!!).

The remaining two just seem to “deliver” what the New Generation Star Wars fan wanted to see. And this is where “The Clone Wars” comes in. You see the original Clone Wars was a cartoon on Cartoon Network which featured 7 or so minute animated shorts getting longer as the series progressed. There was very little dialog. But the visuals were just disturbing, to say the least.

Case in point: in one episode we find Yoda and Mace Windu on a planet fighting off Battle Droids. Both of them use near GOD like powers to push back hundreds even thousands of droids. One scene had a multitude of droids surround Mace only to have him wave his hand and send the hundreds of droids flying. In another episode, the we see the Clone Troopers scurrying about a city giving each other military hand signs and sign language while flipping and jumping around. It was all just too contrived and way over the top.

If you look at the preview for this film you will Anakin has a padawan - what!? He never had a padawan! It was always believed that he was thrown out of the Jedi Knight Order before he even got that far. But George has lost his mind on this one. Not only does he have a padawan but we even see FEMALE Dark Jedi, not one but TWO. This is something that is NOT original Star Wars canon.

I’ll not see this in theaters because I know it’s not what I, a true Star Wars fan, have been waiting for, as the preview suggests. This is just over the top schlaw that George is putting out for what…money?! And he’s NOT getting mine for this drivel…pssfft!

When he gave free license to these 18-20 year olds he went backward and destroyed a great movie pastime. These kids don’t know the true Star Wars lexicon, and their story telling has devolved the greatest films trilogies ever made. The sad thing is that people are going to see this crap and take it seriously!

Now I’m glad I bought the original uncut Star Wars trilogy on VHS, the Non-Special Edition versions. I hated what he did to “Return of the Jedi” by replacing the original Anakin at the end with the “new” Anakin.

George, George ,George how you shame thee.

Isaac Hayes Passes Away at 65

Isaac Hayes - Legend


Sigh…
Saturday we lost Bernie, yesterday Isaac Hayes. Sigh… first Bernie now Isaac. This is too much. Isaac was a iconic performer and legend. I can’t write anymore because only heard about Bernie Sunday, and this morning Isaac. It’s too much. My condolences to both families…


(Originally published on Aug. 11, 2008 at 8:35 a.m. PT E! Online)
“Though Hollywood is still reeling from the unexpected double passing of two pop-culture heavyweights over the weekend, that hasn’t stopped them from paying tribute to their late colleagues, with tributes for Isaac Hayes, who died early Sunday at his Memphis home from as yet unknown causes, already pouring in.

Dionne Warwick: “I’ve lost one of my best buddies and it is not easy to reckon with…I know one can never put a question mark where GOD puts a period, so I will not question the Almighty’s decision to call him home…He was my “family"…He will be a part of my musical life each time I sing the song “Déjà Vu” as this was a birthday gift to me from him…My family and I send sincere heartfelt condolences to his family for their enormous loss, and we will hold them in continuous prayer.”

Aretha Franklin: “It was so sad to hear about Isaac Hayes. So musically advanced and timeless in his compositions. He was loved and appreciated by so many. He was an enduring symbol of the struggle of the African-American man and was a shining example of soul at its best. God bless.”

Patti LaBelle: “I last saw Isaac a while back in Washington, D.C. at a concert where we were both performing. Although he was under the weather, he was still performing. He was the man—he had ‘the show must go on’ spirit. In his absence, he will be remembered through his great music. He will forever be in our hearts and souls. God bless his family.”

Neil Portnow, President of the Recording Academy: “Three-time Grammy winner Isaac Hayes was a true renaissance man—singer, songwriter, producer, session musician, actor, activist and more…his groundbreaking theme song and score for the movie Shaft cemented his status as a musical icon…The world has lost a true creative genius and a passionate humanitarian, but his indelible legacy will remain ever present. Our deepest sympathies go out to his family, friends and all who were inspired by the man and his music.”

Priscilla Presley, to Entertainment Tonight: “I am shocked. We have lost not only an incredible talent but a wonderful leader to his community and a dear friend. To me there will only be one Isaac Hayes, gifting us with years of performing, writing and a voice that penetrated deep into our souls. He is to be admired for changing his life around and standing steadfast to his beliefs, his integrity and to helping others…Isaac, you will be missed but never forgotten.”

Lisa Marie Presley, to ET: “Isaac was one of the more genuine and beautiful souls I have had the privilege to cross paths with and befriend in this life. He was an incredible friend. This is a tragic loss. My heart goes out to his wife and children. Wherever he is going to just became a brighter and more beautiful place, and I will miss him dearly.”

Sam Moore, Grammy winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer: “I owe so much of my fame and success to Isaac Hayes as it was Isaac who wrote, produced and actually invented what is known as the “Memphis Sound"…I truly know I was blessed to have had his presence in my life and career…Fortunately for us all, Isaac’s talent will continue to be recognized and live on as a result of his enormous musical contribution.”

Bernie Mac Passes Away at 50

Bernie Mac

His TV show The Bernie Mac Show was a very good and unique comedy/drama program that showed a real family with real problems and not the wacky families we saw on “Family Matters” et al. I can’t recall when I first saw him, but I do remember his roles in “Friday", “Bad Santa", “Charlies Angles", “The Kings of Comedy", etc.. But, my most fond memory is of the TV show. It was a unique show, and I’m glad it was a show that showed a positive and real side to the Black family, since the Cosby Show.

My condolences to the McCullough family for their lost.


(Originally published on E! Online Aug. 9, 2008 at 12:30 p.m. PT)
“Brad Pitt: “I lament the loss of a ferociously funny and hardcore family man. My thoughts are with [his wife] Rhonda and their family. Bernie Mac, you are already missed.”

George Clooney: “The world just got a little less funny. He will be dearly missed.”

Chris Rock: “Bernie Mac was one of the best and funniest comedians to ever live, but that was the second best thing he did. Bernie was one of the greatest friends a person could have. Losing him is like losing 12 people because he absolutely filled up any room he was in. I’m gonna miss the Mac Man.”

Cedric the Entertainer: “It’s hard to put into words just how I feel and what a painful loss this is. Bernie was a brother, a friend and one of the comic masters of our time. Sharing the marquee with him during the phenomenon of the Kings of Comedy tour bonded us like family, and created a unique moment in comic history marking some of the most meaningful, memorable and fun times of our lives. His comedic approach was his own brand and will definitely stand the test of time. The level of his talent always inspired me and other comedians to ‘bring their A-game.’ I promise you that you never wanted to be the guy who had to follow Bernie’s set! As a husband and father, he was THE MAN and my thoughts and prayers are with his family. He will truly be missed, but so well remembered.”

Don Cheadle: “This is a very sad day for many of us who knew and loved Bernie. He brought so much joy to so many. He will be missed, but heaven just got funnier.”

Kelly Preston and John Travolta: “We are heartbroken. He will be deeply missed. He was a wonderful, kind and gentle man.”

Ocean’s Eleven costar Carl Reiner: “It’s a tremendous loss because of his age and the fact that he was such a vital, original human being. When I use the word ‘original’ I really mean it. He was like no other person I knew. He lived his life to the fullest, even when we were on the set of Ocean’s. He had his own little apartment and he cooked and invited people to lunch every day and he had food that was for everybody. He made very exotic things. His conversations were always different than any conversations I had with anyone else. They were very family-oriented; he talked about his wife and children with such love and it’s very hard to believe that he’s not with us anymore.”

Actress/comedienne Niecy Nash, who played Mac’s little sister on the hit television series The Bernie Mac Show and acted opposite him in the 2005 film Guess Who, said this about her friend and mentor: “His passing is such a major loss to the acting and comedy communities. Bernie Mac was the personification of the word ‘real.’ He kept it real. That kind of genuine spirit that he carried all the time cannot be easily duplicated, but I will do my very best to try.”

Fox Broadcasting Company and 20th Century Fox Television: “Bernie Mac was a gifted talent whose comedy came from an authentic and highly personal place. He was a tremendous live performer and a wonderful actor. Fox was proud to be the home of The Bernie Mac Show, and all of us at Fox and 20th Century Fox Television extend our deepest sympathies to his wife, Rhonda, and daughter, JeNiece.”

Jenifer Lewis: ”Bernie’s style of comedy was bold, courageous and revolutionary—I never knew anyone who loved to be funny as much as Bernie. He will most definitely be very missed.”

Samuel L. Jackson, Mac’s costar in the November 2008 flick Soul Men: “It goes without saying that Bernie was one of the preeminent comedians of our generation. He was also an attentive husband, a great father and loving grandfather. I feel blessed to have shared years of friendship with Bernie Mac and I’m honored to have finally costarred with him in what I consider to be his finest cinematic acting achievement. My sincere prayer is that his family will be comforted by the warmth of love from all of us who knew and respected this man.”

Bob and Harvey Weinstein, whose studio, The Weinstein Company, is releasing Soul Men: “Bernie Mac was a brilliant performer whose legacy will bring laughter to all of us for many years to come. The thoughts of everyone at The Weinstein Company and Dimension Films are with Bernie’s family.”

wow

Well, yesterday I talked to th@ Nintendo lady & everything was straightened out. So I thought I would have to wait at least 2 weeks for my DS to be fixed.

Well, I was very surprised when leaving for work that my building manager told me I had a package. I wasn’t expecting anything at all. I looked at the return address and it said John Trujillio but below read the Nintendo Repair Site address. So I was shocked they sent it out to me the next day.

Buy not much since it was the “corporate thing to do". I was half expecting a new DS - the Crimson one to be exact. But th@ just my greedy selfish self.
Well good job Nintendo for taking care of business. ;D

Okay, it turns out that the guy is really named Fukunaga, and it wasn’t shorthand for fuck you nigga. I checked both the 800-255-3700 to verify the repair and hecked it online and it was recieved. Also they called me as well. She told me that my DSLite was picked in New York and it was signed by a employee who really is named Fukunaga. And that is being repaired – Whew!

An Nintendo employee called me a nigger and stole my DSLite!

My L-button on my DSLite Onyx concked out, so i decided to send it in.
Well i went to the UPS site to track the package wand was greeted with FUKUNAGA,
which is shorthand for FUCK YOU NIGGER. I called but it was after hours, so I wrote and
e-mail with 6 attachments including original sales receipts and the repair order mailing label.

Well, anayway, here is the e-mail I sent to Nintendo of America:

Regarding Repair Order # 6311999

(portions bolded for emphasis)

My name is Paul James Chatman, the L-Button on DS Lite Onyx stopped functioning, so on Feb 05, 2008
I requested a Repair Order ARS mailing label, as my DS Lite is still within warranty (see attached PDF files).

I sent my DS Lite in for repair on Feb 25, 2008. My UPS tracking number is 1Z 999 5AW 06 0081 4884
Today, Feb 26, 2008, when I went to the UPS site to check the status of the package that I sent you I was greeted by this.
Thumbnail

The package was received and signed FUKUNAGA, At first I thought it was a Japanese surname,
until I looked again and then realized the phonetic translation: FUCK YOU NIGGER.
I called 1-800-255-3700 to see if the repair was processed and the system said “No” (to paraphrase).
Then I went to the Nintendo Repair Lookup site and was greeted with this.
Thumbnail

According to the your site the DS Lite Onyx was not received, and YET we have a verification by UPS that it was. My DS Lite wOnyx as stolen by one of your employees. I want it back. I was shocked and heart-fallen that this has happened.

Attached are PDFs of my ORIGINAL Invoice for the purchase and the CompUSA purchase receipt. Both dated April 11, 2007 and April 12, 2007, respectively. Also, attached are scans of my original ARS maling label and Repair Order Invoice.

What has happened to me is a travesty, and places a horrible stain on your corporation, and it’s Shipping & Receiving / Repair Service Employees. I need someone to call me at (personal info deleted) to speak with me on this very serious issue. Or e-mail me at (personal info deleted). Though, I prefer a phone call, if possible. I will, however, call tomorrow morning to follow up on this e-mail, to verify that was received.

Please help me resolve this issue quickly. Unless it was caught on camera (if your facility is as large as I suspect, and the package as small as it was, I find it unlikely), I know there is absolutely no way to track down and apprehend the person who stole
my DS Lite and called me a nigger. But, accountability MUST taken!

Heart-fallen,

Paul James Chatman
Los Angeles, CA USA
(personal info deleted)

I will call in the morning at 6 am promptly. Good thing I’m off work tomorrow, ‘cuz I could not
function at work knowing this was looming over my head all day. It’s things like this that make hate this country immensely.

>:XX :no: :( :'(
