It was Bouncers v. Every Drunk Guy at St. Augustine on Memorial Day.

The videos kind of out of context since no one knows how the donnybrook started but it seems pretty clear the Bouncers took home the tag team belt on Memorial Day. Going to school in Central Florida and having the self awareness to know that Im in Florida, I’ve set bars to determine how bad a bouncer fight is gonna be. Its not “if it happens”, its “when it happens, how bad is it really?” Well the top bar is set as “I got shoved out the door by a big black bouncer and fell on my ass and got on world star” and the low is set at “Scott Hall pulled my own gun on me and murdered me” No one seems to be dead so frankly its a win in my books.

Also, is this what St. Augustines like?  We took a class field trip there when i was like 7 to the Fort and never heard about that place ever again until about 5 years ago when i heard it was a hot bed for a couples weekend destination. Is that whats up with St. Augustine? Bouncer fights at the beach bar? Might have to take a trip up there sometime.

Someone Clipped Bill Simmons talking about how he got to ESPN with Kanye’s Last Call beat.

Anyone who knows 2000’s hip hop should know College Dropout. Its arguably the best Kanye CD ever. Fuck all his new shit. I mean c’mon. Jesus walks? Through The Wire? fucking Slow Jamz was the instant party song to get a girls attention. Theres not enough fire emojis to descibe how good College Dropout was. And anyone who knows that CD knows Last Call. Its Kanye telling his story about how he got signed to the Roc. Well some genius out there, mr3bits, decided to do the same to Bill Simmons interview about how he got to ESPN. Sure its 3x the length of kanye’s story but with that beat in the back how could you not listen. I need to write my story and track that beat asap.

Photographer Captures a Photo that Symbolizes Memorial Day

(CNN)For those who have lost a loved one in the military, the point of Memorial Day is not barbecues and storewide sales. It's remembering the family members, friends and comrades who gave their lives to help protect our country. This weekend, many on social media have been honoring the fallen by sharing patriotic scenes and other powerful images -- many from years past. It's a reminder that for each person's sacrifice, there are people who miss them and want to preserve their legacies online. Here are some of their stories. Photo by Frank Glick

Chills. Dew on the ground. Fog in the air. The symbol of America overseeing all the lost souls from those brave enough to fight for us on Memorial Day.

Artist Selling Screen Shots of his Instagram Account for 100k

What you see above is part of Richard Prince’s latest art showing at the Gagosian Gallery in New York. The show was originally private according to the New York Post, but has recently been made very public for a number of reasons:
Prince’s 48-inch by 56-inch″ inkjet prints from celebs’ social media feeds — with his comments underneath that are sometimes just emojis — have been on display for VIPs in a private area at the Madison Avenue space.
A spy who saw the works said pics of Pam Anderson and Kate Moss are included and selling for up to $100,000.

Fuck this high society art life. It literally drives me crazy thinking about it. What the fuck is the point of this and why the fuck would you ever pay that much money??????? I can literally go on my phone, look that picture up on Instagram, Screen Shot it, and Print that on a 48 by 56 inch poster at Kinkos in fucking 10 minutes. Listen, im a man who likes to reason both sides just cause i want to know i can. I can rationalize rich assholes spending money on a different car for every day of the week. I can imagine being in the shoes of a peasant farmer who just enjoys working the land. I dont think i can EVER rationalize spending 100 Thousand dollars on some phoney rip off artist whos a lazy rich fuck for a large screen shot of someone who doesnt follow me back on instagram. Fuck everything about this.

We’ve Got a Homeless Shitter Fiasco in Downtown Miami

Miami Herald-Tasked with marketing Miami to tourists and investors, the tax-funded Downtown Development Authority has plenty of maps highlighting restaurants, tourist attractions and real estate development. On Thursday, they unveiled their latest: a detailed map showing where people popped a squat on downtown streets. The scatological atlas, smiling poop emojis and all, was created amid a swirling dispute between downtown boosters and the Miami-Dade Homeless Trust over how to get homeless men and women off the street, and how to deal with corresponding sanitation issues. The two public agencies have been feuding for about a year now, dating back to the creation of a temporary shelter program at Camillus House, and more recently with the DDA’s promotion of souped-up porta-potties.

Its not all sandy beaches and beautiful babes down in Miami anymore. Once you scrap away the facade of the Miami high rises and luxury cars  you’ll find that the homeless are leaving their shit and piss stained marks all over the city. Enough to the point where its become an epidemic apparently. On SE 1st street, that one little shit spot is a block away from one of my favorite Italian spots and I cant have that. Last thing i want after getting a belly full of Fettuccine allo ScoglioIf with a date and walk back to my car and find a guy with his pants around his ankles grunting while he shits.  If I were homeless and i had to crack a deuce i probably would pinch one in the alley too if i had to and were there but even i would try to do the most logical thing i could think of and thats try to take a shit into the ocean. Its the largest toilet in the world and Im almost sure sewage is connected to the ocean anyways and its right there. Just head over to Bayfront where u can get over the ledge and drop one in the Atlantic. That areas just shipping yards anyways, not like thats where tourist flock too. Find a wash off area near the beach and clean your self and go back to being a bum. Keep Miami’s reputation good so you can ask tourist for more change. Problem solves.

 

Well I bet Kionna Moret Didn’t Think Her Memorial Day Weekend Would Culminate in Getting Arrested for Child Neglect.

SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – An 8-year-old boy was allegedly left home alone for the Memorial Day weekend while his mother traveled out of state. Kionna Moret, 27, is now facing charges of child neglect and child endangerment after someone called police to report her son being left to fend for himself Saturday. “To leave an 8-year-old on their own for a weekend and go two states away, to me, is just mind blowing,” said the woman who filed the police report. The woman wished to remain anonymous to protect her family, but she said her teenage child was outside kicking a ball around Saturday afternoon when the young boy came outside to play. She said the boy later told her son he was left home for the weekend by his mother who went to South Carolina for the holiday weekend. The woman told WAVY.com she called authorities around 5 p.m. Saturday after talking with the boy herself. “I looked over at him and said, ‘Hey, is your mom home? I need to talk to her.’ He got very hesitant and I said again, ‘I need to talk to your mother. Is she home?’ He hesitated again and he said ‘no.'” According to the woman, the 8-year-old then told her his mother wasn’t planning to come home to Suffolk until Monday. “I said, ‘Monday?’ and I said, ‘Who is staying with you?’ He said, ‘Nobody, I’m home alone.’ And then I said, ‘You’re home by yourself?’ He said, ‘Yes, my mom said I was old enough because I took Taekwondo.'” She said the boy told her he had pre-made corned beef hash and pizza for food along with a cell phone to check in with his mom every hour. The boy told her he was to keep her travels a secret. “He said his mother had told him that she would spank him until he could not sit down if he told anybody,” said the woman. Police were at Moret’s home near the 100 block of Windsor Court for more than six hours Saturday night, according to the woman. She said there’s still many questions running through her mind. “How many times have I looked and seen no vehicle in the driveway, and now I wonder if he was inside by himself,” said the woman. “It is very frightening.” She said she’s relieved the boy was able to get help before a potentially dangerous situation and she’s hopeful Moret will be held accountable. “If that’s the parenting that she is going to display, she needs to be retrained and be given the privilege back at a later time.” Moret bonded out of the Western Tidewater Regional Jail on Saturday. The 8-year-old remains in the custody of Child Protective Services.

Listen I obviously don’t think Kionna should get a mother of the year mug or anything but a little context is needed in this story. Lets start from weak to strongest point here.

Screen Shot 2015-05-25 at 2.45.03 PMTwo states away SOUNDS extreme but in reality its not the worst.Going from Virginia to South Caroline is like 5 and half hours drive. Here in South Florida you could barely leave the state in that distance of time depending on your starting point. Saying she went two states away is just a ploy to make her case sound even worse. Its Ft. Laudy to Gainesville distance, not THAT bad if you ask me.

Screen Shot 2015-05-25 at 2.48.11 PM Look at that neighborhood! Its like in Home Alone when they say nothings gonna happen because they live on the most boring neighborhood on the block. Its really kind of a paradox, these safe looking neighborhoods with the picket fence where almost nothing happens and the next thing you know the neighbors getting arrested for child neglect but in NYC you see tenement housing literally being run by little bastard children and out on subways on their own by the time they can walk and read basic english. Im sure this kid knows how to lock the doors and dial 911, which from the looks of that house and neighborhood, probably would never need to call. Id love to be home alone in that nice house.

Screen Shot 2015-05-25 at 2.56.40 PMKionna’s been criticized enough so Im gonna give her the benefit of the doubt and say she atleast is a somewhat decent cook/can order pizza pretty well. Corned beef hash? sign me up. Breakfast loaded with your meat and potatoes that can fill you up past lunch for sure. Pizza? its like literally the healthiest thing anyone probably eats on the weekend. If you get a nice plain cheese pie its technically vegetarian soo this kids meal his mother set for him is pretty much a balanced diet to me. Not to mention the cell phone check up every hour. Shit sometimes Im too poor on the weekend to order pizza and i definitely don’t get any loving phone calls from my mother.

c20a29deb280f7c6abcd4e5830b2ce2cThe kid knows taekwondo. As fas as I know he didnt have a gun where he could potentially kill himself from misuse, but what he did have was the knowledge and training to subdue any potential threat that walks through that door

Memorial-Day-Bikini-Swimwear-Bikinis-Swimsuits-Memorial-DayBut most of all its Memorial day weekend. The reason we celebrate is to honor those who served in the military, and guess what, those same kids back then wanted to, no. Had to be a man of the house by 8 years old. And whats more irresponsible, Kid in the safe confines of a nice suburban home with food and technology or at some party that could potentially get violent or risk a child consuming alcohol or on the roads where there are drunk drivers? The answer is the kid in the safe house.
