Prototype - next Outkast Video/Single

Outkast is shooting a video for Prototype - off of the Love Below cd. My question is - why the hell is another Andre track being released as a single? Almost any of Big Boi's songs should be a single...
Unhappy, Bowtie, Church, The Rooster, Bust, Flip Flop Rock...all really good songs. Speakerboxxx is superior to Love Below and it's a shame that they're not releasing more tracks from it


ACC Preseason Picks

The media has done their ACC preseason picks...and once again Florida St is picked to win it...
#2 Miami, makes sense.....#3.....UVA????
Once again UVA is ranked highly. When are people going to realize that UVA sucks...two consecutive tire bowls + loss of their QB doesn't equal #3 in ACC. Every year they're a popular top pick (ok, the past 2), and every year they fail (again, the past 2).
Maryland?? #5?
Guess it'l be fun to watch MD once again finish higher than expected, and to watch UVA fall again.

Sarunas Jasikevicius

For Maryland Basketball Fans:
From ESPN - Mark Stein

So many teams out there need a point guard. Houston, Miami, Dallas and the L.A. Lakers are simply the first four that come to mind.

Yet one of the best point guards on the free-agent market is no longer totally free, and I'm struggling to understand why NBA teams didn't make a harder push for this guy.

Sarunas Jasikevicius is the best point guard in Europe. He's the Maryland alumnus who gave Team USA beaucoup problems at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney and who'll be confronting the Yanks again next month in Athens where Lithuania, the reigning European champions, figures to be Team USA's toughest competition along with Serbia and Montenegro. And since he already has experience playing in the States, Jasikevicius figures to adjust faster to the NBA game than his Euro point predecessors who struggled, namely Sergei Bazarevich and Aleksandr Djordjevic.

It appears, though, that Jasikevicius will not be seen on these shores next season. A clause in his contract that permitted the Lithuanian to jump to the NBA -- without compensation to his current club, Euroleague winners Maccabi Tel-Aviv -- expired this week. If an NBA team pursued Jasikevicius now, Maccabi would be entitled to a buyout of at least $1 million, with NBA clubs restricted by league rules from chipping in more than $350,000.

San Antonio wanted him last summer but couldn't pry loose Jasikevicius -- a clutch shot-maker with "big cojones," in the words on one NBA personnel man -- from his Maccabi contract. The concerns about Jasikevicius are his athleticism, defensive shortcomings and an occasional problem with turnovers, in addition to the standard fears about a foreigner coming to America at a position where he has to tell teammates what to do. Yet this is the zone era, when it's easier than ever to cover up for a bad defender. And while I might be a tad biased, I still rate Jasikevicius better than a lot of backup points in this league, pointing out again that he does have a better handle on the American hoops culture than Bazarevich, Djordjevic or even Tony Parker did when they first came over.

If your team needs some depth in the floor-leader department, consider this an opportunity missed.

Random Steve Blake Mention:

Eddie Jordan really likes second-year point Steve Blake, and the Wizards better take notice, because a half-dozen other teams do, too. But Washington's best hope comes from realignment; in a new division with Orlando, Charlotte, Atlanta and Miami, the Wizards should at least compete.

Starbucks might raise prices?? I already pay a ridiculously stupid $3.47 for my morning mocha.

"We believe the price increases will be met with little resistance by the consumer because the underlying demand for the products has been so strong," she said.

Bullshit. I'm out No more Sbux for me.

Vengence Scale

Highlites from the Vengenence Scale which is a must read.

  • 0.1 -- O.J. Simpson's valiant attempt to find the "real killers."
  • 1.8 -- George Costanza feeding lobster in an omelete to Jerry's non-lobster-eating girlfriend ... Scottie Pippen's dunk on Ewing's head in the '94 playoffs (the one where he stood over him and glared).
  • 5.9 -- Dr. Kimberly Shaw returning from her car accident with a red wig and a giant alien scar on her head, seeking revenge on the entire "Melrose Place" cast.
  • 6.0 -- MJ against Drexler in the '92 Finals ... MJ against Barkley and Majerle in the '93 Finals ... MJ refusing to play on the original Dream Team unless they left off Isiah.
  • 7.1 -- Snoop and Dre taking shots at Easy E in "Wit' Dre Day" ... Biggie recording "Who Shot Ya?" ... 50 Cent creating the word "Wankster" in a song about Ja Rule.
  • 8.0 -- Justin Timberlake's "Cry Me A River" video. (Note: The most underrated example of vengeance on this list. After Britney cheated on him, not only did he dump her, he put out a best-selling album fueled by a song about their breakup in which he basically destroys her with the lyrics. Just an unbelievable piece of work. It's devastating. I can't even imagine what she did when she first heard it. And if that wasn't enough, he made a well-received video about the song, starring a Britney look-alike. And if THAT wasn't enough, he immediately started going out with Cameron Diaz. By the time he was done, Britney's career was in the tank -- she was chain-smoking and hanging out with backup dancers and white trash guys from her hometown. Now that, my friends, is vengeance. Bravo, Justin. Bravo.)
  • 9.1 -- Tupac Shakur recording "Hit 'Em Up." (Note: In my book, the most devastating rap song of all-time. And you wonder why Pac was murdered. This made "Who Shot Ya?" look like it was written by James Ingram and Michael McDonald. Every line is crossed: This one has death threats, admissions of sleeping with other people's wives, jokes about sickle cell, mama jokes and at least 100 F-bombs. I'm not kidding. And while we're on the subject, "We ain't singin', we bringin' drama - f--- you and your motherf----- mama!" remains the greatest single moment in 2Pac history. And yes, I know I'm white.)


The U Network

Move over MTV: The U Network is coming to college campuses this fall, boasting what it calls a more intelligent, "clean" alternative for today’s young people.

TUN aims to challenge what it says is MTV's liberal bias as well as compete with the entertainment channel by including student-based programming and in-house productions co-produced by students like "The W Show," a docu-series based on President Bush’s 2004 campaign; "Dinner and a Debate"; at least two military-themed reality shows; and a "positive" spring break special called "Make or Break."

I know I can't wait for "The W Show". I''m guessing it'l be similar to the Ashlee Simpson show.

Krispy Kreme Donut...Drink?

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Once the fried dough embodiment of hot and fresh, Krispy Kreme has transformed its original glazed doughnut into a new frozen beverage for summer.

The chain introduced a new line of frozen drinks Wednesday, including frozen original kreme -- a drinkable version of the company's signature doughnut -- raspberry, latte and double chocolate.
