Throwback Video of the Week

Ok, I can't even front - I've been watching "Family Matters" on Nick At Nite. One of last week's episodes was the one when Steve promised Johnny Gill a valuable baseball card (don't ask me which one, I don't watch baseball like that) if he'd come over and sing to Laura. I'd forgotten all about that episode, but when I saw Johnny prancing around in that purple silk outfit, the memories came rushing back. So, this week's Throwback video is Johnny Gill's "My, My, My." Enjoy!

Now, I'm not a parent, so I'm not here to tell anyone how to raise their kids. I do know, however, that no newborn should EVER be dressed like this!

The blame for this f-ery (I'm trying not to cuss) lies solely on the shoulders of the parents...and BET! I guarantee in 5 years, Lil Man will know each and every word to the newest I-Pain* song (if he's lasted this long, the music industry is clearly on the decline, and it'll only get worse), but the jury is still out on whether or not he'll know his ABC's.
I couldn't make this stuff up, even if I tried.

* From this point on, "singer" T-Pain shall be referred to as I-Pain - tell me your eyes don't hurt after looking at him!

Parkin' Lot Pimpin '08

Ok, I know the economy is pretty bad, and gas is like $40 a gallon but there is no, I repeat NO reason for this foolishness! Note to all couples - if you can't afford a nice ceremony, take your tails to the nearest courthouse, politician's office, Grandmama's living room, etc. and just have a small civil ceremony. What makes this so bad is the fact that, while the attire isn't runway chic, in the whole scheme of things, the wedding party doesn't look bad. I'm almost certain that they paid a visit to David to get these gowns, but they could be (trust me, I've seen) a lot worse! AND, what makes this really bad is the fact that this is happening in the great state of New Jersey! Somebody get Corzine on the line - we need a resolution (literally)! This level of foolishness is inexcusable, and today I CAN'T!
