(Where my WASPs at?)
The NY Times has a piece trying to convince its readers that young Republicans are people too. Seriously, they even go to parties and stuff!
Can you imagine what Karl Rove or Dick Cheney was like at age 25?
Some things are already self-parody so I won't dissect this one.
But this serves as a great eulogy for the last 12 years of Republican power.
I can't wait until election day...
Republicans really understand black people.
Peep their new ad to get the Negro vote...
- BLACK MAN #1: "If you make a little mistake with one of your 'hos,' you'll want to dispose of that problem tout suite, no questions asked."
BLACK MAN #2: "That's too cold. I don't snuff my own seed."
BLACK MAN #1: "Maybe you do have a reason to vote Republican."
Sounds like a rap song.
- Is Starbucks really becoming an arbiter of culture?
They may started out as some underground coffee shop in Seattle but at this point they are the Wal-Mart of this caffeine game.
Does it even have to be said that you're a tool if you think Starbucks makes you cool or indie-hip?
These people didn't know about Etta James or Miles Davis before they saw the CD on the rack and heard it playing on the radio system?
This quote from the article kind of made me sick,
- Even the keyboardist Herbie Hancock, whose recent album “Possibilities” has been a strong seller at Starbucks, buys the idea. “Going to Starbucks,” he said, “you feel kind of hip. I feel kind of hip when I go to Starbucks; that’s how I know!” He said people of every age had told him they weren’t familiar with his work until it appeared there, then he called back to say he’d never gotten better promotion in his life.
Herbie Hancock, what the fuck?
I used to bump Headhunters with pride until I read that shit.
To be honest, the reason I didn't check out one of the only non-coon ass black movies of the year, Akeelah and The Bee was because it was produced by Starbucks.
The only thing that reading this article has done is confirm Starbucks position as the store to hop into when I have to use the bathroom.
