Business…this week, the column’s on Anthony Hamilton, one of the only singers in recent memory whose music I can listen to without feeling like I might catch suckeritis.
Now, to the biggest sucker of the week…Kobe Bean.
It ain’t just SSP (shameless self-promotion) here in virtual Bomaniland. First, Professor Sandy Darity, my advisor at Carolina and the frequently mentioned Flat Rock Sensei, is featured in the New York Times Magazine (along with his co-authors) for work he has done refuting the “acting white” hypothesis. Click here for a brief synopsis of the work he and Karolyn Tyson are doing on an important topic.
Also, Fred Batiste–a weapon of Mass Destruction–compiled a black college All-America football team for BV, so show the man some love by clicking and going.
A Kobe Bryant rant will be coming before too long…trying to see if I can sell it first, though. Here’s the background info. Be on the lookout. And Cali folks, young Baba will be in your neck of the woods Wednesday.
Business…click, go, and peep this month’s BSN joint, a look at Barry Bonds.
An update is coming soon, I promise. School’s been the real deal, but I’ll be back on it shortly. This week’s column will be on TI, and next week’s will be on Anthony Hamilton. Instead of posting here about Grandmaster Flash, that will be a column entry in late January. Be on the lookout for that one.
And belated Happy Happy to Shaka T. and Cam.
Business – this week’s column entry is on the new Nas. It’s that fire. Next week’s on TI, who also has that fire.
Gas Money to get to campus – couple bucks
Parking ticket – fifty bucks.
Getting dapped up by Grandmaster Flash – PRICELESS
There’s a longer entry on that coming a little later in the day. But, for now, enjoy the column and lemme get back.
Now that the -itis is gone, gotta look back on my most enduring holiday moment from this year. And it ain’t cheerful…
It’s turkey time. Since I’ll be here in Durham for the holiday away from biological family, I’m sending out to the world all the people and things I’m glad to have in my life in various capacities.
Thanks go out to…
Business…peep this BSN piece on college basketball.
Well, due to some hangups, a piece I was going to have run on a pretty famous sports outlet about this Artest business got cut. So, what you’re getting here is the first BomaniJones.com exclusive. It’s in PDF format, and give it a look. If you’re some sort of editor and like what you see, get at me and we can work something out. Click, go, and enjoy.
Check this, coming in the aftermath of the brouhaha in Detroit.
“The league issued a statement saying it was reviewing rules and security procedures “so that fans can continue to attend our games unthreatened by events such as the ones that occurred last night.””
Yep, rich white folks should feel free to scream slurs and throw beer at players. Apparently, million dollar contracts must also come with a dignity clause. You know, in signing the contract, players must trade their collective manhood and be at the mercy of the whims of those with courtside seats.
This message is brought to you live from my living room!
Your intrepid blogger has finally moved into the twenty-first century, and my vehicle to this new millenium is my new laptop. And since I got the laptop, I had to get the fancy wireless router.
I’ll have carpal tunnel in a week and a half.
