'I ain't no Harlem fat girl!'

Greg Stacy at OC Weekly has a hilarious 'analysis' of Gwen Stefani's 'Hollaback Girl' that is a must-read. You will laugh at out loud! A preview:

Uh huh, this my shit

Gwen is introducing us to her shit.

All the girls stomp your feet like this

This talk of shit and stomping has nothing to do with actually stepping on feces. But what does it mean? From a reading of the later text, we can conclude that the song takes place in the world of high school athletics, and that Gwen is apparently leading the girls in a calisthenics exercise. The “shit,” we surmise, is what she calls the exercises she’s teaching the other girls.

A few times I’ve been around that track
So it’s not just gonna happen like that

Here, Gwen exhorts the girls to try harder as they jog around the track, reminding them that physical fitness is “not just gonna happen,” but must be worked at.

Cause I ain’t no hollaback girl
I ain’t no hollaback girl

These lines are the most confusing, but their meaning will become clearer later.

Oooh, this my shit, this my shit

Gwen repeats this four more times. She wants to make sure that we are well acquainted with her shit.

I heard that you were talking shit
And you didn’t think that I would hear it

Gwen has been the victim of some slanderous high school gossip, and she doesn’t appreciate it. Gwen is 35 years old sliding into MILF status at this point, but we’ll grant her some poetic license.

Read the whole thing here and laugh!

All's Wells that Ends Wells!

David Wells wins his third straight start. This is a good sign. Hopefully the Sox starting pitching is about to round into shape. Now that I said that, watch it get rocked tonight.
Still three games back of thos damn Orioles though. Ugh.

Judge not, lest ye be Judge Moore

Judge Roy Moore of the great (giggle) state of Alabama is considering a run for Governor. Isn't it great when soemone that has more than one issue decides to enter the active political realm? Anyway, here is an excerpt from the Boston Globe piece (free registration required):
Moore, a Republican who enjoys widespread support in his home state, is poised to run against a vulnerable Republican governor. If he wins, some party strategists speculate, he could defy a federal court order again by erecting a religious monument outside the Alabama state Capitol building. With the 2008 presidential race looming, President Bush would then face a no-win decision: either call out the National Guard to enforce a court order against a religious display on state grounds or allow a fellow born-again Christian to defy the courts.

Now, who here thinks that our Dear Leader has the fortitude to stand up to his base, as this article implies he might?
Yeah, I thought so too. Look, I say let him put up his graven image, his golden calf, and let him pay the consequences in the hereafter. The man is an idealouge, an egotist (as the article indicates, he has a HUGE self-image), and a fool. Let him bury himself.

Personal Update

Well, it has been a coouple of weeks since I last updated. We are going through FRI training to learn how to teach kids to read, so it's been a bit hectic around the Masy household these days. I can't wait until I can actually get a real summer vacation! I will try to update more soon.
