Swag me out, Tetsuo...

Some stuff just transcends history. Everybody in Akira had that dystopian swag that I find very alluring, and this jacket (and the bikes! Lawd!) were real standouts. Don't know what I'm talking about? Don't worry, the Esquire black book came out just a little while ago.

But if you dig anime fashion (and have about 70,000 yen handy), you can pre-order the Akira capsule jacket here.

I could talk about what's really on my mind...

Which is this guy:
and one of his (And, to be fair, President Obama's) leading platforms to gaining voters.
But it's Friday and nobody wants to think that hard (And I have a research project due this afternoon as well). So instead, I'll leave you with a political morsel of another sort:

It's Friday! Drink and be merry, N*ggas! (because if some people get their way, we won't be able to identify as anything but brown anymore.)

Weekend, Hooooooo!

Today Show Talent

Salute, brehs.

I'm a man of simple pleasures. One of those pleasures is watching the news. Call me masochistic, but I need to know what's going on in the world. How else am I going to know when the Space Traders arrive to scoop a breh up?

I watch local news, but the program I enjoy the most is the Today Show. I like Matt Lauer, and I like to see the side eyes that Al Roker gives to his co-hosts in his rare fits of black man curmudgeon-ness. Lately, I've been noticing the immense amount of sheer talent [1] that exists on the show, and makes it a pleasure to watch. Just make sure my wife doesn't see this post, will you brehs?

#iMourn over more than Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs went on, brehs. Collevtive America is sighing and crying, so much so that they forgot about that white girl who killed that other white girl but got off. That's my official name for that shady ass sh*t, if you follow me on twitter and see me use that #TWGWKTOWGAGO hashtag, know what the business is.

But yeah, Steve Jobs has gone on to that big app store in the sky. Unfortunately, though, so has Derrick Bell, critical race theorist and the beneficiary of may of my years of undergraduate study. Derrick Bell wrote the controversial "Faces at the Bottom of the Well" and the short story The Space Traders, a movie that I urge all of you to watch. In fact, here you go:

Don't ever say I haven't done anything for you.

Also a victim of October 5th, the Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth, right hand main man to Dr. Martin Luther King. HuffPost wrote a really good remembrance article here.

Two extremely influential men, equally as important as Steve Jobs passed on yesterday, with little fanfare from most media. It's up to us to make sure these men are remembered as the giants that they are, brehs.
