My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss’ Final Two

Well, I just watched the second to last episode of the series…

Damian made a poor choice (in the last episode) in kicking David off for being “too honest” instead of Annette, who really appears to be a jerk. He got too caught up in Mr. Todd’s world of garbage and made his choice based on that. Honesty’s what you want. Consequentally, he was next to go.

So, we’re down to Mike and Annette. They don’t like each other, which works well for the show. I am rooting for Mike to win. It should be a good finish.

For those who don’t know, Fox released episodes 6 through 9 online only and they have been added each Friday. About an hour long, check them out, if you wanted to see the show (it got cancelled after 5 episodes). Fox made a good choice in releasing the episodes of the show as to not alienate fans.

House has to fire someone!?

What?! That stinks! I like all of their characters.

Maybe it won’t happen. Any guesses?

It’s GONE!

Well, the good Winamp.com video selection I was talking about… gone. The PD videos anyway. :(

Stinks…

Kain Cioffie

Kain Cioffie was a rapper signed to Bad Boy Entertainment. He appeared on a number of tracks, including:

Where’s Sean by PD featuring Big Azz Ko, Black Rob, Bristal, Kain, Loon and Mark Curry.
Let’s Get It (Remix) by PD featuring G. Dep, Black Rob, Kain, Loon and Mark Curry.
Lonely by PD featuring Kain, Kokane and Mark Curry.
This is Me (Remix) by Dream featuring PD and Kain.

He also has a mixtape out or something, of which I haven’t heard. I was looking forward to his Bad Boy release.

However, it appears as though he is off of Bad Boy, unfortunately. His official website is at kaincioffie.com, but it is only a coming soon page right now (with a verse).

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

A well named day it is.

The End of Jeremy’s Story

Jeremy has posted the end of his ordeal (the one I mentioned yesterday).

Quite an ignorant jerk he got.

Jeremy Meets Homeland Security

Jeremy has gone through quite an ordeal.

Like I said in a comment… I was very surprised reading it all. Very unfortunate.

I don’t envy their job and there are idiots in every profession, of course.

Not a huge surprise that it happened, just a surprise that it happened to a friend of mine, I guess. Rough interrogations, stripsearches and the like are acknowledged parts of the work of law enforcement (police, FBI, airport security, homeland, etc.). Good people get caught up in it sometimes, unfortunately.

But, he shouldn’t give up just yet… it looks like him and the media company are going in the right direction and hopefully it can still work out, so we can all hear his big news.

Leadership Not Always Synonymous with Friendship

Great post by Brandon.

Plaxico Burress and Edgerrin James to Miami?

Is it even possible? Who’s paying for this?

Palm Beach Post:

Agent Drew Rosenhaus, who soon will add Burress as a client, said on his weekly appearance on SportsXtra that he’ll try to get Burress to Miami, as well as Colts running back Edgerrin James.

I don’t know if what we have now, Burress, James, the number 2 pick and extending McMichael’s contract is even possible. Granted, we’d probably be trading Surtain.

It will be interesting to watch.
