Because I'm White and Trashy

One of the fun things about having to clean up files on a corporate network is that you occasionally find something valuable in all of the crappy personal files, joke and chain emails, amateur porn and other non work related stuff that people save in their "personal folders". In this case I am probably the perpetrator (don't worry - it isn't from my amateur porn files) as I vaguely remember a coworker asking me about this song years ago. It is a homemade sound file of a woman extolling the virtues of being "white and trashy"

Here is the link:
White And Trashy

I wish I could give proper credit but I could not find any info about this. Someone at work said that she heard it on an Atlanta radio station called 99x. They were one of the first "alternative" commercial radio stations in the early nineties and I believe still have a similar format. I remember being impressed by their lunchtime retro shows as the DJ played the "Holiday In Cambodia" by the Dead Kennedys once when I was tuned in.

Must See Quick Time: He Man sings 4-Non-Blondes

Please click the He Man jpeg to follow the link. The download may take some time ( Damn near 20 Mb) but it is worth it. This clip may have been going around a while but I just found it this morning surfing over at the Drawn blog. I tried the creator's site at Slack Circus but it was hosed as of 4:23 EST due to excessive bandwidth - the price of success on the Internet.

Overheard In New York

Overheard In New York has become one of those sites that I check every week or so. It is a pretty good concept for a shared blog. Here are two of my favorite entries thus far:

Clearly Unemployed

Yuppie: I don't think he's working now. All he ever talks about is monkeys and robots.


Looks Like "Like White on Rice" is Over

Black guy #1: Ooh, ladies? Konichiwa!
Black guy #2: Arigato!
Asian girl: We're Korean, motherfuckers!
Black guy #1: Sayonara!

--7th & A

Overheard by: M!J

You know, I talk about robots and monkeys a lot. I wonder if I'm employed......

The Epistle Of St Paul to The Women of Lesbos

A long time ago I was a parole officer in rural North Georgia. Once while making my rounds in Cherokee county near Canton I saw this sign outside of a church and had to pull over to take a picture. The only camera I had was a cheap disposable one and the photograph was a disappointment when developed. The sermon is priceless however: "Be careful with your tongue. It is in a wet place and can easily slip" Words to live by folks. Words to live by

Truth in Advertising: The Messy Burger

Brad's Grill in gorgeous Gainesville Georgia has a HUGE burger called "The Messy Burger" and as the Comic Book Guy on the Simpsons might say: "Messiest Burger Evar!" This place has become one of my favorite spots for Saturday lunch but I have only had this burger once. It is that damned big!

Two Enormous Patties
Red Onions

They also have homemade pimento cheese sandwiches and cakes! Suck on it Micky D's!!!
