In The News / What the $#@! is happening in Arkansas?
« on: January 04, 2011, 08:49:33 am »
 Something in the air...

Thousands of dead birds picked up in Ark. town

BEEBE, Ark. (AP) - Environmental service workers finished picking up the carcasses on Sunday of about 2,000 red-winged blackbirds that fell dead from the sky in a central Arkansas town.


The commission said that New Year's Eve revelers shooting off fireworks could have startled the birds from their roost and caused them to die from stress.

Robby King, a wildlife officer for the commission, collected about 65 dead birds, which will be sent for testing to the state Livestock and Poultry Commission lab and the National Wildlife Health Center lab in Madison, Wis.

HEF BAILS OUT HOLLYWOOD
~~"...You Ought To Be In Pictures..."~~


Los Angeles, California - Hugh Hefner has saved the iconic Hollywood sign in L.A. The Playboy tycoon gave the final donation of $900,000 in order to save the sign.

The 84-year-old soft porn mogul, who calls the sign “Hollywood’s Eiffel Tower,” explained his generous donation, “My childhood dreams and fantasies came from the movies, and the images created in Hollywood had a major influence on my life and Playboy.”

Vox Populi / Pres. Obama's Supreme Court Pick
« on: April 12, 2010, 08:43:57 am »
By the end of the summer, there should be a new addition to the Supreme Court. What should President Obama look for when considering a nominee to replace retiring Justice John Paul Stevens in the Supreme Court?

How does the candidate interpret law?  How much appellate experience does the candidate have?  ...judicial experience?

Personally, I've been subjected to the abuses of really, really awful, unscrupulous judges in my life who did not hesitate to infringe on my basic civil rights (free speech, for example) and I would like to see someone sitting in the star chamber who can best represent cases involving race, gender and Big Business in a manner that aligns with how I would have seen it.

Former Georgia Supreme Court Chief Justice Leah Ward Sears

Former Georgia Supreme Court Justice Leah Ward Sears, an expert in family law and the first African-American woman to serve as a State Supreme Court chief justice, was on Obama's short list last year. A member of the left-leaning American Constitution Society, it would be nice to see a Black woman on the Supreme Court but unfortunately she is also a friend of conservative Justice Clarence Thomas.

There are other candidates rumored, like

GM unveils new concept car in China earlier this week

Looks like the world in Spielberg's AI and Minority Report, doesn't it?



CHINA - General Motors unveiled a new electric concept car in China on Wednesday , aiming to burnish its image as a supplier of non-polluting cars tailored to the crowded mega-cities of the future.

According to Reuters dot com  and ms.hsj.org

http://my.hsj.org/Schools/Newspaper/tabid/100/view/frontpage/articleid/348141/newspaperid/2899/GMs_New_Concept_Car.aspx


Now that the federal government is part ownership of GM, can you picture  this kind of imagery in the distant future?

Hmmm...
A Woman's Worth by Alicia Keys

~~You could buy me diamonds
You could buy me pearls
Take me on a cruise around the world
Baby, you know I'm worth it~~

~~Run my bubble bath
Make love tenderly to last, and last
Baby, you know I'm worth it~~~

According to a study released by the Insight Center for Community Economic Development, a single white women in the prime working years of ages 36-49 have a median wealth of $42,600  compared to the median wealth for single women of color [read: Black & Hispanic Women]... which is only $5.

Feel The Funk / Hi, Mr. Willie Mitchell

Willie Mitchell passes away at 81

Classic Ol' School R&B Producer


MEMPHIS, Tenn - Record producer from the South, and  musician played with many musicians but his best work was known for the distinctive instrumentive arrangements behind Denise LaSalle & Al Green's singing voice from the late 1960s to the mid-1970s has died at age 81.

His sound has been covered and sampled many times over by many music recording artists since his time with Al Green.

He teamed up again with Mr. Green in 2004 for another collaboration and the results sound as if they never left the business.

Vox Populi / Community Job Feedback
« on: December 09, 2009, 08:47:14 am »
From what you have heard about the President’s job creation summit meetings, what seems relevant to your community?
Hmmm...





What parts of your local economy are working or thriving? What businesses and sectors are expanding and hiring?
Hmmm...



What parts of your local economy are not working or thriving? What businesses and sectors have been hit the hardest? What are people struggling with the most?
Hmmm...




What are the opportunities for growth in your community? What businesses and sectors seem poised to rebound? What do you see as the “jobs of the future”?
Hmmm...




What are the obstacles to job creation in your community? What could make local businesses more likely to start hiring?
Hmmm...






What other issues and ideas should the President consider?
Hmmm...


The White House has created a forum online for any American who may have something to contribute to the discussion.
Six simple questions presented by the Obama Administration with regard to suggestions, ideas and feedback to job creation.
I thought it would be a good idea to post the link here in HEF to increase the volume of ideas and concepts in the ‘suggestion box’ for the president to consider from today and all the way up to January 7th of the new year.

Good luck!

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.  “It’s gotta be a human being. We’ve narrowed it down to that much.”
The winner gets a trip to Los Angeles to work with producers and the show’s 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, “D’OH!” 
Say, Jenn, isn't this a character you created?  I happened to notice it on your blog used as your avatar. Maybe-e-e…

Feel The Funk / The Magic Is Gone...

...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
