GOdd Quotations: Odd Future

So, I was going to write a little blurb in defense of those Wolf Gang kids — one that properly explained how any of the highly controversial, misogynistic, homophobic, and hateful verses could possibly be construed as Good. But then I realized, chances are you’ve already come to your own conclusions about these most divisive, pop culture-phenomehoodlums. You’ve probably already decided that there’s either no excuse for what they spit or that they’re just sitting back and laughing at the reactions to their purposeful and reactionary provocations. I guess it’s obvious where we stand.

“This is for the niggas in the suburbs.
And the white kids with nigger friends who say the n-word.
And the ones that got called weird, fag, bitch, nerd,
Cause you was into jazz, kitty cats, and Steven Spielberg.
They say we ain’t actin’ right,
Always try to turn our fucking color into black and white.
But they’ll never change ’em, never understand ’em,
Radical’s my anthem, turn my fuckin’ amps up!
So instead of critiquing and bitching, being mad as fuck,
Just admit, not only are we talented, we’re rad as fuck.”

Goodosphere Shares A Joke: The Ghetto

Dave Chappelle has been in the news recently because he appears to have popped up for realsies on Twitter. For several reasons, including some choice endorsements and a quasi-convincing photo, some 170,000 folks have decided to follow him. They’re all hoping. So are we.

Double Down: Until The Dark Knight Rises…

We just realized that the first quarter of 2012 is nearly done with and we’ve nary made mention of the fact that The Dark Knight Rises is coming soon to an IMAX near you. The only question is, “How will you pass the time until July?” The Internet is here to help.

Ride Your Bike

With the arrival of spring and the departure of what was an exceptionally tame winter, it’s a good time to break out your bike if you haven’t already done so.

If you’re in the market for a new steed, there are a couple cats in the Bay Area who will build you one out of recycled Honduran mahogany, cherry and maple hardwoods. They are a touch pricy, but you are paying for a handcrafted bike made out of ornamental Chinese pistache and an uprooted redwood and whatever other choice woods they manage to find laying around their San Jose shop. Worth it? Probably.

While we’re on the subject of riding bikes, a word to the wise: Lock up! Otherwise, you may end up like Aspen, Colorado’s Jay Maytin, who left his bike unlocked outside of his wife’s law office only to find it stolen upon his return. Luckily, it all worked out. The bike was found outside a local police station the next day with a note that read, “Sorry. I stole this bike. I rode it home. Please give it back.” It was signed, “Drunk.”

Thanks, Font.

Spring Action

It’s the first day of spring, so break out those baseball gloves, adventure shoes, and copies of Astral Weeks. Also, get your algae on.
