« on: October 17, 2009, 07:21:15 am »
There's nothing like a little online friendly competition, eh?
Contest Winner To Create A New Character
What Are The Odds?

Los Angeles - "The Simpsons" is giving one lucky contest winner the chance to create a new character for the animated TV series, perhaps one of the longest prime-time shows in television history next to "Gunsmoke".

The contest,, part of the Fox show's 20th anniversary celebration, is for those 18 and older.  It started Friday (yesterday) and runs 'til 11:59 p.m. October 24th 2009.
Online submissions can be uploaded here.  ...or here:
Executive producer, Al Jean says submissions should be pithy and funny, who will help judge them along with series creator Matt Groening.  Its gotta be a human being. Weve narrowed it down to that much.
The winner gets a trip to Los Angeles to work with producers and the shows animation director.
The top entry will be announced in mid-November.
Entries are expected to describe the character traits, including his or her name or nickname; age; appearance; occupation and catchphrases. For example, Homer Simpson is known to exclaim, DOH! 
Say, Jenn, isn't this a character you created?  I happened to notice it on your blog used as your avatar. Maybe-e-e

...but not forgotten!

Back in th' early 80s, if you wanted to hear Hip Hop on New York radio, it was through his show past midnight on saturdays, 107.5 FM a.k.a.  WBLS. His was the show that helped bring the rap acts closer and closer to the mainstream and expanded the time slot from 1 am to midnights until Hip Hip music made it into primetime 8 pm by the end of 1989. He was the first person I ever heard interview LL Cool J, RUN DMC, The FAT BOYS and the Boogie Boys. In fact, I still have a cassette recording of some of those interviews. He was the guy's voice in Roxanne Shante's answer to U.T.F.O that exclaimed,  "Oh My Goodness!".  He even once played an EmCee in the classic Hip Hop movie, Krush Groove. When Biggie gave a shout out on his 1st hit single,

"Every Saturday 'Rap Attack,' Mr. Magic, Marley Marl ..."

...that's who he was talkin' about. A legend passed this weekend. That legend was Mr. Magic!



"Oh My Goodness!!!"

Other Comics / Has Anyone Read This, Yet?
« on: October 02, 2009, 01:45:44 pm »

I saw this book at a major book store, picked it up and strummed through a few pages. The painted artwork inside was good enough to justify a purchase.  Now I saw this series shortly after November 2008 entitled, Female Force: Sarah Palin by Bluewater Comics which I almost bought only because the President-Elect at the time was featured in a panel or two.  Many believed that this series was just a stunt for a fledgling comic book company to capitalize on last year's election craze but now I don't think that's the case. The series has now spun-off into more and more mini-bios on prominent people like Vincent Price, Vice President Joe Biden, Barbera Walters, and First Lady Michelle Obama.  Bluewater even has a website

REGGIE HUDLIN'S FEMALE BLACK PANTHER
By JENNIFER M. CONTINO



About the only thing Reggie Hudlin revealed about his new female Black Panther was that "once you read the story [the new Panther being female] is quite logical." As PULSE readers know, several women have been teased as wearing the Panther's costume now, but just who is the actual hero will be revealed in the first arc. Of the characters teased, Hudlin said, "There are obvious choices, and there are ringers, but folks shouldn’t be too cocky in dismissing some of the candidates suggested."

US Airways plane goes down in Hudson River
NEW YORK (AP) — A US Airways plane has crashed into the Hudson River, sending passengers fleeing for safety in the frigid waters.
Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Laura Brown says the plane, an Airbus 320, may have been hit by birds.  Read on, reader...
Yeah, those passenger pigeons have long been a subversive group.
---------------------------



IMO, It is unlikely that a flock of geese or any other south-faring flying birds would be around in brick cold weather like  N.Y.
One of the reasons I don't take airplane flights at huge heights is because the navigation system is installed with computer software; prone to human error.  I mean, back-in-the-day I used to get very frustrated whenever application programs on my PC were shipped with bugs but do I really wanna board a flying tube attached to glider wings, mounted on turbine-powered DC10s  with buggy software?! :-[
This incident will be a clue as to what the Obama Adminstration should look into very VERY closely.  Find out who the software company contracted to this model. In fact, the Obama Administration should find out who each and every contractor to every device, every square inch of this flying stagecoach plus a full scale investigation of the logs and safety proceedures.

Vox Populi / HOT GHETTO MESS
« on: January 12, 2009, 12:21:06 pm »
...uh,  MESS SPECIALISTS, that is! ;D
Dinner  at  1600



The Navy White House Mess is the official elite, hand-picked culinary unit and can trace its origins as far back as 1880, when Navy stewards were charged with the task of providing food-service to then President Rutherford B. Hayes aboard the presidential yacht,  USS Dispatch.
Mess Specialists that worked in the White House officially began thier service in 1942.*

If it were me?  I'd decline the services of those government-issued amateurs and hand-pick my own personal chef. How hard can it be to find an expert when there are award-winning chefs like Rick Bayless out there that would willingly offer thier knowledge, skills and talent for President-Elect Obama's first inauguration dinner?

Editor-in-chief  Kelly Smith Killian asks Mr. Bayless what was his suggestion on the  Restaurants & Institutions site what he'd serve on January 20th, 2009. An excerpt:

Guacamole

  • “Michelle [Obama] loves guacamole. We do all different kinds of seasonal guacamoles at Topolobampo, and they’re always commenting on those.”

Tortilla soup

  • “They also love our tortilla soup. It’s a signature of the restaurant. Everything changes on our menu[at Frontera Grill & Topolobampo restaurant], but the tortilla soup is always there.”

Hawaiian yellowtail seviche

  • “My favorite fish to make seviche out of is this fish from Hawaii--a type of yellowtail that’s farm-raised in nets in the sea. It’s the most amazing stuff in the world and it reflects [Barack Obama’s] connection with Hawaii [his birthplace].”

Roasted beef with red-chile guajillo sauce

  • “For a main course, we’re really in love with this grass-fed beef that comes from Kansas, which is originally where [Barack Obama’s] mother is from. We roast whole rib-eyes and then slice them. The last time the Obamas were in, we were doing a rack of lamb with red-chile guajillo sauce with grilled onions and little fresh corn tamales on the side. They loved it so much that we thought it would be the perfect setup for this roasted beef.”

Apple tarts with cajeta

  • “If you’re going to do an inauguration for the 44th President of the United States, you should probably do something as American as apple pie. We would infuse the apples for our apple tarts with cajeta, which is this wonderful, rich goat’s-milk caramel.”

...aaaa-a-and, Coffee

  • “The first proprietary blend of coffee we ever did for the restaurant was a blend of Kenyan, Indonesian and Mexican beans. [Barack Obama’s father was born and raised in Kenya and the President-elect himself spent a few years of his childhood in Indonesia.] I love the balance: the Kenyan beans are very winey; the Sumatra beans are real earthy; and the Mexican beans are real bright. So each of those balances off, and we hope that’s going to be a great representation of his presidency—that it’s going to be perfectly balanced.”


Now that sounds presidential. Either way, every night,  the new Commander in Chief will be treated to the best cuisine the world has to offer.
