Carolina Chocolate Drops

I ran across this video while checking out "this black sistas" blog

To be honest with the exception of a few artist I've been very unimpressed with what passes for R&B today. So being a native of North Carolina I'm intrigued by this group. I've always hated country music myself. But Blue Grass music was an entirely different thing, I'm not sure where I developed an ear for this type of music. Maybe it's because of the summer camp my parents sent me to in Black Mountain NC when I was 13, or maybe it's because it' reminds me of the relaxing summer trips my family would take to places like Asheville, Blowing Rock and Cherokee NC.  However being the cool brother that I was I could never let anybody know that I actually liked blue grass music. But that was until a young group of musicians has made blue grass hip. I've already come out of the closet as a metal head, maybe I should add  Blue Grass music to the list as well as well.

The Hard Truth: Companies Don't Hire Unemployed

A very interesting show that was on NPR yesterday.

I hate to break it to you kiddies, but this is what's happening. To me this is just more evidence that the current employment situation is the "new norm". Also this should motivate the long term unemployed to start their own business
and tell corporate America to kiss their asses.

Tyrone gets a new scooter

Ok, so I was supposed to be writing a hard hitting,thought provoking post about our Prez calling in Bill Clinton to help a brother out. But then I had some Crown Royal and all that went out the window. So I leave you all with this on a Friday night.
