In China, when you get to the airport everyone be talking in American slang.

Ike Wister Turner (November 5, 1931 – December 12, 2007) was an American musician, bandleader, talent scout, and record producer, best known for his work with his then wife Tina Turner as one half of the Ike & Tina Turner duo. Spanning a career that lasted half a century, Ike's repertoire included blues, soul, rock, and funk. Alongside his former wife, he was inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1991 and in 2001 was inducted into the St. Louis Walk of Fame.

Turner is said to have been married 14 times but he has only been known to have married four times publicly. Turner's first marriage was to Lorraine Taylor, who had two sons with Ike. The facts surrounding his second marriage, to Anna Mae Bullock (otherwise known as Tina Turner), have been hotly debated. It is believed that Ike married Tina in 1962 due to worries over being sued for child support and alimony payments by Taylor. The ceremony is claimed to have taken place in Tijuana, Mexico, and Tina had a son with Ike. However, their marriage was overshadowed by Ike's constant abuse towards her. Tina filed for divorce and it was finalized in 1978, with Ike keeping every asset attained during the marriage. Ike is said to have openly cheated on Tina with other women, one of which was former Ikette Ann Thomas, whom he had a baby by and whom he later married in 1981. In 1995, he married yet another Ikette, Jeanette Bazzell. Ike has four known children: sons, Ike Jr., Michael and Ronald and daughter, Mia.

In the mid-1980s, Turner suffered a brush with the law when he was convicted of drug-related charges and sentenced to several years in a California state prison. Turner was still in prison pleading parole when he and Tina were inducted to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1991, which Tina accepted on his behalf.

In 2001, Turner's long-awaited autobiography, Takin' Back My Name (ISBN 1-85227-850-1), was published. In Tina Turner's 1986 autobiography I, Tina, later filmed as What's Love Got to Do with It?, Tina accused Ike of violent spousal abuse, which Ike repeatedly denied for many years. However, in his 2001 autobiography Ike admitted, "Sure, I've slapped Tina... There have been times when I punched her to the ground without thinking. But I never beat her."

Turner has attributed many problems off the stage to his drug and alcohol addiction and intense use of cocaine, resulting in his abusive behavior and relationship with his wife and children. Since being released from prison in 1993, Turner had maintained sobriety and continued playing music.

On October 17, 2007, in a telephone interview conducted by satellite radio personality, Howard Stern, Ike claimed that he and Tina Turner were never actually married, though he did not explain why they shared the same last name.

Turner died on December 12, 2007 at 76 years old at his home in San Marcos, California, near San Diego. [5] The cause of death was not immediately released but Jeanette Bazzell Turner reported that he had emphysema.

hey kid, the red sox sucks....

Griffin Whitman, a 10-year-old Red Sox fan from Swampscott, was excited to attend his first Yankees vs. Red Sox game Friday night. The young autograph -collector was even more thrilled to score Yankees outfielder Shelley Duncan’s signature before the game. That is, until Griffin read the message from the 27-year-old rookie: “Red Sox suck! Shelley Duncan.”

“It was cool to get his autograph,” Griffin said. “It didn’t make me feel happy when he wrote that.”

Griffin’s mother, Karen, blasted the Yankees slugger’s bad manners.

“This is someone who wears the Yankee uniform and is on the payroll and should be setting an example for 10-year-olds,” she said.

"You know what," exclaimed Duncan at the 4040 club in New York, "The little kid should know better."

my youth and the nba

hey guys,
so one of the best perks of living in the city is going to basketball games. you know the N-B-A. it's pretty cool. i used to go with my grandpa, pop-pop and found this picture of the two of us. what do you think? pretty cool that an old geezer can take his grandson to see a knicks game and they all they end up enjoying is the dancers...we both really liked the dancers. i guess it's because the knicks stink.... then again, probably not.

hey blog!

new moves...

hey readers,
i apologize for falling off the face of the earth. life has been kind of busy over here... a few quick updates, i've moved out of hoboken, sold all of my furniture - not my bed- moved to the upper east side. now why on earth would i do that? if we've talked in the last 2 years, you'd know that my commute from hoboken was 30 minutes tops, now it's 30 at best, 45 usually and to top it off, my apartment is smaller... so why do it? i have no idea. i'm still working it out.... if you can't tell my inner dialogue would like to say, it's because you want the ladies and hoboken isnt sexy.... then again neither is my apartment.

eye contact and women

When should you make your move

When should you approach her?

There is a very specific moment that lasts for only a few minutes that determines whether you will be able to pick her up or not. You should make your move on the third eye-contact you two make.

No more. No less.

Anything before that will be premature:

0 eye contacts made: "Let me check you out while you introduce yourself, buster."

1 eye contact made: "I have checked you out and am forming an opinion about you."

2 eye contacts made: "I am considering you as potential playmate"

This is when you move in:

3 eye contacts made: "I am inviting you to come over and talk to me, act on it now!"

Anything after that will make you look less confident:

4 eye contacts made: "I am wondering why you didn't respond to her invitation, do you not like her?"

5 eye contacts made: "Are you keeping me as your back up plan?"

6 eye contacts made: "If you are shy, you are not worth my time."

7 eye contacts made: "Are you slow or what? Geez"

8 eye contacts made: "What a looser! We are all talking about you at our table."

9 eye contacts made: "Ha! And to think I was going to give it to him tonight…"

Yes, it takes guts to be able to react to the third time she checks you out.

But if you do go there and introduce yourself, you will find that talking to her and seducing her will be a lot easier than any other time. This is the moment when she is most receptive to you.

Your only effort will be to walk up to her, everything else will work out as planned.

If, you wait till the sixth eye contact, you will have to spend some time convincing her that you are the lover she has been looking for...not an easy task.

reading a magazine on the platform waiting for the subway...

I feel this WHACK against my leg..."What the F!?" as I turn around and see
some blind guying waving his stick at me...

I take out my earphone and look at him..."Can't you f*cking see I'm
listening to music? D*ck!!"

Guess he didn't see me.

Slate Article-- Bogus Trend Story of the Day

The Sunday New York Times discovers online sales losing "steam."
By Jack Shafer
Posted Monday, June 18, 2007, at 6:05 PM ET

Illustration by Mark Alan Stamaty. Click image to expand.Nothing lives up to our expectations. My parents. Your children. Television season finales. Yesterday (June 17), the New York Times located its disappointment in Web-based retailing in a 1,200-word, Page One piece titled "Some Buyers Grow Web-Weary, and Online Sales Lose Steam."

The lede of the article asks, "Has online retailing entered the Dot Calm era?" The story answers resoundingly, "Yes."

The Times finds consternation in the fact that since the Web commerce got started, annual online retail sales have grown at about 25 percent. But those overall rates are slowing, the paper reports, and market-research firms project further slowing. The Times quotes a Jupiter Research finding that online retailing's growth rate has peaked and will slow to 9 percent a year by the end of the decade.

The Times presents a few bogus anecdotes to explain the slippage, including "Internet fatigue" on the part of consumers who are "changing their buying habits." A shopper tells the Times that he now prefers real stores to online ones because of better lighting and better service. His example: Book Passage in downtown San Francisco. The shopper's wife—who just happens to be an executive at the brick-and-mortar department store Macy's—says shopping online is "much more of a task." What else would she say?

The piece provides additional evidence to account for online's decline. Dell now sells computers at Wal-Mart, it reports. Gone unmentioned is the fact that Dell sold PCs at Best Buy, Costco, and Sam's Club as recently as 1994, according to this Times article from one year ago. Another anecdote: has "almost tripled" its number of ticketing kiosks in hotels and other touristy spots. It could be a terrific supporting statistic if the story included the base number of kiosks that have been almost tripled, which it doesn't. The most bogus anecdote claims that "Borders … recently revamped its Web site to allow users to reserve books online and pick them up in the store." There's nothing "recent" about that service. Borders spokeswoman Anne Roman says via e-mail that the book chain has given customers the option to reserve books online and retrieve them in stores since November 2002.

He was killed....

in fact, the ending was genius if you've paid attention to the show
or are just a fan of well developed well thought out plots that all
tie together and have the memory of a champ to remember it all

the ending was simple, he got killed, but let me tell yall why and
explain in detail... There was 3 people in the room total who had a
reason to kill tony.....

the two black guys, they were paid before to kill tony but he was
only shot in the ear, this was in one of the earlier seasons,

also in the earlier seasons, the trucker who was sitting at the bar
stool, who the camera kept focusing in on, is Nikki leotardo, Phil
Leotardos nephew, he was in one of the early season episodes where
Phil and Tony have a sit down....

heres where the genius comes in....

When tonys walking in the diner,you see the camera focus on him, then
it switches to his perspective, and you see him looking @ the booth
hes gonna sit at...

then the camera switches back to tonys face, then it once again
switches to his perspective, and it shows him looking @ the door and
looking @ the people come in..... Everytime the door opens the Chimes
sound....... Carmela walks in, Chimes, AJ walks in Chimes, this when
Meadows parallel parking, still trying to get inside the

at this point the camera switches back to the trucker who goes in the

Then it goes to a scene where meadow finally parks and starts running
in the diner....

the doors about to open, Tony looks up....

and No Chimes......................

No Music............

Everything just goes black...............

In one of the early episodes of the sopranos, tonys talking with
bobby about what it must feel like to die..

Bobby says "at the end, you probably dont hear anything, everything
just goes black"

part of that was revisited in the second to last episode during the
last seconds of it, when tonys about to go to sleep and he flashes
back to the memory of him and bobby on the boat... "You probably dont
hear anything everything just goes black"

so in the end, the Journey song was playing, the chimes on the door
sounded but when meadow came in, the guy in the trucker hat came out
and killed tony...

its the reason you dont hear, or see anything when he died.... it was
from his perspective.... and everything went black, then the credits

this story stinks- thank god its not true

Red Sox Fan vs. Yankee Fan
One foggy night, a Yankees Fan was heading north from
New York and a Red Sox fan was driving south from
Boston. While crossing a narrow bridge they hit each
other head-on, mangling both cars.

The Yankees Fan manages to climb out of his car and
surveys the damage. He looks at his twisted car and
says, "Man, I am lucky to be alive." Likewise, the Red
Sox Fan gets out of his car uninjured, feeling equally
fortunate to have survived.

The Yankees Fan walks over to the Red Sox Fan and says
"Hey man, I think this is a sign that we should put
away our petty differences and live as friends instead
of being rivals." The Red Sox Fan thinks for a moment
and says, "You know, you're right. We should be
friends. In fact, I'm going to see if something else
survived the wreck." The Red Sox Fan then pops his
trunk open and removes a full undamaged bottle of Jack
Daniels. He says to the Yankees fan, "I think this is
another sign - we should toast to our new found

The Yankees Fan agrees and grabs the bottle. After
sucking down half of the bottle, he hands it back to
the Red Sox Fan and says "your turn."

The Red Sox Fan calmly twists the cap back on the
bottle, throws it over the bridge into the river and
says, "Nah, I think I'll just wait for the cops to
show up. Go Sox!!!!!!!!!!!

what do you think this picture says... i think it says i'm not having kids for a while..

If you had a million dollars, what would you do?

NY Post: lemens won/loss record will dictate how much criticism he gets for coming and going.


If Roger Clemens pitches well nobody will criticize him for coming and going in the Yankees' universe. If he gets rocked regularly expect to hear about his schedule as the reason.
