Regulaaators!  Mount up!

The 90s did bring us a few good things: NAFTA, the World Wide Web, a free Nelson Mandela, Seinfeld, Nirvana … and good old fashioned hip hop.  More specifically, Warren G.     

VanityFair.com features an interview with him (read it here), which I couldn’t help but think has to be one of the most honest, humorous celebrity interviews I’ve read in a long time.  Combining financial insights and Cristal, kudos to Warren and contributing writer Eric Spitznagel, and here are some of my favorite parts:

VF: So that’s why Chrysler is bankrupt? Their cars don’t have enough leg-room for dancing?

WG: At all! (Laughs.) It’s a trip. You know that little bitty car they sell, the electric car that’s real small? You can’t even fart in that car.

VF: What are your thoughts on health care reform? Is it really just socialism in disguise?

WG: You know what, man? I couldn’t even tell you. I just know they need to fix it, period. Let Obama do his thing.

I don’t know if you get this a lot, but when white people over a certain age hear the name Warren G, their first reaction is usually “Do you mean Warren G. Harding?” I assume there’s no connection.

Naw, man! That’s absurd. I’m Warren Griffith the Third. I ain’t named after nobody named Harding.

So you’re never like, “I wanna give a shout-out to the Budget and Accounting Act of 1921, bitches!”

Hell no! I don’t even know who the fuck Warren G. Harding was.

Ok, so I can’t figure out how to post this video from funny or die.  So, you just have to click the link and watch the musical about California’s Proposition 8 – starring Margaret Cho, John C. Reilly, Neil Patrick Harris, Maya Rudolph, Jack Black and more! 

 

I just have so many issues with this topic…  I keep hearing the phrase “deconsstruct marriage” and to me, that’s like saying “jumbo shrimp.”  The focus of marriage is to construct a new relationship…  We are discriminating in America still, and it’s sad.  Why is one person more valid than another?  There’s no answer, and by not allowing people to have civil rights we are making them feel invisible.

Standing in front of the jumbo tv in downtown West Palm Beach, it was as though the cool temperature suddenly rose a few degrees.  The blustery winds seemed to calm.  The collective pulse of the crowd steadied.  

Today was glorious.  There is a lot of journalistic junk food – dress reviews, celebrity spotings, dance moves – that you could get fat on, but let’s not.  Let’s hope that we remember the little things – for me, it was the smile on the young girl’s face as she sat on her father’s shoulders, and the little tap dance in my heart after President Obama said, “On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn out dogmas, that for far too long have strangled our politics.”  I hope that everyone – regardless of color, political affiliation, religious belief, preference for automatic or stick shift – let today remind them of how lucky we are to be Americans.

Watch and read President Obama’s entire speech here.

Happy Monday.  I’m so excited about tomorrow’s festivities.  I’m hoping to steal away from the office to watch our 44th Presidential inauguration.  Anywho, with that on my mind…I’ve not much left for tonight’s post.  So, here are some pictures and a few words to get us by this Monday 🙂

We’re loving these glasses!  And the red wine goblets; and the white wine glasses…they make a Tuesday night feel more special 😉
