But I've always been afraid of being one of those guys that crosses the line between chubby and "GOD DAMN look at that fat F*%$K" I think I have figured out the line..See if you agree with me... When your gut is so bulbous that the front looks like an ass, you have SERIOUsLY crossed the line. So I've started to notice people's "ass guts". And it got me thinking, I'm a Grizzlies season ticket holder, very proud one in fact. ut I noticed something odd at the game. Just like every arena, there are some seats reserved for diable people, or folks who just have a harder time getting up and down the stairs. This I think is one of the great things about hummanity, the disabled are a minority in America that typically gets a big fat nothing, so the LEAST we can do is give them wheelchair ramps and folding chairs to sit in at the game so they don't have to break a vertabre climbing to the rafters. Well I've notice a pair of really obese white girls who have what I would consider handicapped seating. Now, I hate to remind my liberal friends (of whom I count myself among) that these women are NOT DISABLED. You know why I say that.. BECAUSE A BLIND MAN WOULD GIVE UP BURRITOS AND CHICKEN NUGGETS TO BE ABLE TO SEE AGAIN!! ...out|W|P|111483571991032714|W|P|Another Day|W|P|4/27/2005 07:41:00 PM|W|P|Ed Arnold|W|P|

Well this is that time. My job requires only 3 things...An understanding of Audio Video hook-ups, the ability to lift heavy object, and a personallity. Guess what our new guy has none of these things. Aside from having a distended gut like an ethiopia child, he can't lift a 30" tv WITH help. Honestly, I could take the lack of personallity, I could take. The lack of knowlege I could take, because I think I could train a monkey to do that...But damnit, you gotta be able to lift!!!|W|P|111455685646405619|W|P|trained monkeys|W|P|4/26/2005 11:00:00 AM|W|P|Ed Arnold|W|P|

And although the Griz lost I can't be too upset with the performance. They played strong on both sides of the ball, but Pheonix is such an juggernaught offensively and from the 3 point line that it was damn near impossable to slow them down. I have high hopes but am realistic for the next game tomarrow. I imagine the Griz will steal at least one game, as I have a hard time imagining the Suns shooting that high a persentage for 4 straight games, buit I can't see them advancing. We just don't have anyone who is dominant in the post through a double team. Pau has improved be he could not move closer with Amare in the way.|W|P|111453068379717334|W|P|Griv vs. Suns|W|P|4/25/2005 09:24:00 PM|W|P|Ed Arnold|W|P|Hoping Blogspot will be a more pleasent solution the Earthlink crap...But, you never know...I'll be trying to move my handfull of old post onto the new site soon.Check back for details...|W|P|111448235315345541|W|P|1st day in the new diggs|W|P|4/24/2005 08:32:00 PM|W|P|Ed Arnold|W|P|So as expected last nights show was no dissappointment in the talent department. Percee P was fabulous. Although it was many of his older guest apperances strung together to form small sets of rhymes with quick changes. He allowed almost no time for the DJ to work, but the show didn't really suffer for it. Percee's mid ninties rhymes are as tight as the ones he wrote this week so the old stuff was very enjoyable. Problem was... White people. god damn it it sucks to write this. I AM a cracker myself, you know. It was reallly an embarassment. It was an almost EXCLUSIVELY white crowd. Again this wouldn't be a problem if 80% of the guys didn't look like B-rad's crew in Malibu's Most Wanted, and 90% of the girls looked like 1st year sorority pledges with tatooos. Again, this even wouldn't have been a problem but the crowd just HAD to show how "down" they were by ... god i hate this... laying down a beat up piece of lanolium, tapeing it to the floor and "breakin'" on it. Luckily it only lasted a few minutes and nobody got hurt, but... Jesus christ, I saw a 17year old suburban white kid who looked like a hip hop version of the curly Redhead dude from Charles in Charge doing the Robot... Pick up Percee P "Legendary Status" out now, and look for "Persserverance" available on Stones Throw records in August.. Tonight, Griv vs. Suns...and alot of prayer|W|P|111454256203500377|W|P|Percee P|W|P|4/23/2005 04:59:00 PM|W|P|Ed Arnold|W|P|Well, As posted before, my desire to have neat-o crap that runs on batteries has overwhelmed my common sense. I'm carrying 4 rechagable devices around now. My PDA (for calander, adress book and minor amusement) my ipod (duh!), my celll phone (because god knows when my car will explode and I'll need to call someone to come get my sorry ass), and now my freaking PSP (movies for lunch at work, and major ammmusement. I'm sure anyone reads this could think "but Ed, the PSPplays MP3 why would you need it AND the ipod?" Because the PSP is shit as a music player. It has poor controls, a clunky interfac unless you're holding it in your hand (meaning the remote they give you sucks) and it in order to store more than a few albums I'd have to invest in some serious Memory Stick duos. And damn it, I won't invest in another damn memory standard. The games look great, but there is no "killer app" no game that will make John Q Douche say "I gotta have this or I'll have to sell one of my kids"... But it will come...It WILL COME|W|P|111454265086599776|W|P|PSP needs some damn games|W|P|4/22/2005 08:26:00 PM|W|P|Ed Arnold|W|P|Tomarrow night at the High Tone in Memphis on Poplar the excellent MC Percee P will be blessing Midtown's 3rd Shadiest bar with a session. If you read this and can drive there, you should go. Percee P is one highly underrated old schooler. In fact, you'd be hard pressed to find a Percee P album anywere, but he's made mad guest apperances for years. Planet Asia, Jurassic 5, Lootpack, Lord Finesse, Kool Kieth and Bid Daddy Kane are some of the names he's spit with, we're lucky to have him come by. Rap is everywere in Memphis, but 2 turntable mic hip-hop is often hard to find.(though things have vastly improved over the past 5 years. So if you can hear this...Go see him Saturday night. I'll try to post a review Sunday.|W|P|111454270217968682|W|P|MC Percee P comes to town|W|P|
