don't quit your day job!

(Joshua Masayoshi Huff)

Another illustration of the gap between funding of collegiate sports:
The San Diego City College baseball team caught the Honolulu's TheBus from Waikiki to Waipahu because they couldn't afford a van or charter bus.

I hope people stepped up and gave them rides. We always talk about the "Aloha Spirit"--but people often come up pretty short.

And when your son doesn't have your back, you should really reconsider your priorities. My favorite quote?
"I don't think 9/11 was right personally," he said. "I don't agree with 9/11 or with any war where only civilians are dying."

Check out Consequence's "Don't Quit Your Day Job" if you get a chance. Dude was on a ton of A Tribe Called Quest tracks, and now he's on Kanye's "Good Music" label...and, to top it all off...he's Q Tip's cousin. The beats on the album are really laid back and keyboard and guitar driven--it's a really great rap record to put on if you're trying to unwind.

Consequence "Job Song"

How I get stuck in this dead end job when I can rap?
But of course my bill collectors they ain't trying to hear that"

Consequence "Disperse"

Kanye West, Consequence and DJ Khaled "Grammy Family"

Kanye's verse is problematic here--especially because of all the anti-homophobic remarks he makes in the media. You're really gonna drop that f bomb here, 'Ye (well, not in this version, but it's easy enough to find).

Consequence and Kanye West "The Good, the Bad, the Ugly"

Enjoy your Tuesday! You're almost 2/5 done with the work week!
