ole’ faithful: the people, places, and things that never disappoint us

PACERS CLIPPERS

between the economy, the cleveland cavaliers, and the blueprint 3¹, 2009 has largely been an anti-climatic year full of disappointments and epic fails.

despite this, there remains a number of things we can always rely on to come through in the clutch, a bevy of perpetually dependable people, places, and things that never, ever disappoint, and that always perform exactly how we expect them to.

here’s six

ron artest breaking news

between its hair, its haymakers, and its halftime hennessy, “ron artest breaking news” is the literal embodiment of the gift that keeps on giving. i’ve never been disappointed or unentertained after clicking on a headline with its name in it, and “ron artest breaking news” seems intent on keeping it that way forever

the support of sistas

seriously, if you’re a black man with even an inkling of, sh*t, anything, the list of things you can do to make sistas stop supporting you is shorter than kiefer sutherland.

soup with crackers

go ahead and laugh, but name another food more reliable than a bowl of soup with crackers. in my travels i’ve tasted f*cked up versions of pretty much every previously assumed unf*ckupable foods imaginable. i even once had someone bake me some sugar cookies that somehow ended up tasting like smoked salmon. soup with crackers, on the other hand, always comes through, always makes you smile, and, strangely, always makes you think about professional wrestling²

hoes

regardless of where, when, why, how, who, and what, you can always count on hoes to find unique ways to partake in some form of productive hotivity. you may call them many things (“hobby-horse” is my favorite), but “a disappointment” is never one of them³

the barbershop

*just a few of the things i received during last thursday’s weekly visit to east liberty kutz*

a fresh shape-up. a conversation with a crackhead about paul pierce. a slice from ventos pizzeria. two business cards, including one from a female barber i strongly suspect to be a lesbian pimp. stock tips. a convincing theory about the real reason bill cowher left the steelers in 2006 (apparently he got a sista knocked up. she got an abortion, but his wife still told him “we’re leaving pittsburgh or i’m leaving you”). a flyer for a party at a bar that burned down two days later. change for a 20.

the three-five minute early morning quickie

f*ck folgers, this has been and will always be the best part of waking up

anyway, we always have a ton to say about what’s making us itch or grinding our gears, but i’m curious: what else can we name that never, ever disappoints?

¹to be honest, once you realize that the blueprint 3 is just jay-z doing his best impression of a kanye album, its actually not that bad
²maybe this is just me
³unless, of course, she’s your daughter

    I thought it was the media… they cut to commercials at random times during the fight tonight and I was grossly disappointed. So I guess I’ll stick to mirrors. Mirrors never disappoint me, what’s reflected in them from time to time (depending on which store’s dressing room i’m in) but other than that…. i have come to have an over all generally low level of expectation for just about everything, that way, I’m hardly disappointed.

      @Ms. Smart, i been telling folks for years that i’m totally thankful for the existence of Bobby Brown.

      the way he managed to finagle a career as a singer despite not being able to sing gives me hope for all kinds of things.

      Bobby Brown never lets me down. he’s always there when you least expect to provide you some kind of great story to tell your grandkids.

            @Cheekie, y’all don’t remember at Usher’s birthday party some years ago, Bobby Brown – an invited guest – gets on stage and throws Usher off the stage – at his own birthday party – for claiming to be the new king of r&b. i just assumed he slapped him too b/c it makes the story more interesting.

        @Panama Jackson,

    Some things that never disappoint:

    Shopping for shoes

    Going to a NBA game – The energy is crazy and nothing compares to a game at MSG. It never disappoints especially when your team upsets another team.

    Serious Pie – A pizza spot in Seattle – ranked #3 in the country for best pizza. It’s the best pizza I’ve had and I’m from NY.

    Vancouver – I live 2 hrs from here and every trip to this beautiful city is always a good time

    And VSB of course:)

    • A-Town Genius

      @Leila, I do love going to NBA games here especially when people come out to support the Hawks. I guess I just like going to live sporting events in general they almost never disappoint. Even when the game is terrible the people watching is excellent.

      • http://ecstaticfreshness.wordpress.com AkShone

        People watching at a Hawks game is definitely entertaining,lol.

        I guess I just like going to live sporting events in general they almost never disappoint.

        you know what, though? i think that works for every sport, except professional football. nfl games are much better to watch at home than at the game, imo

          @The Champ,

          nfl games are much better to watch at home than at the game, imo

          I agree. HDTVs are so much better and cheaper than they used to be. It’s a better experience at home now.

        • Me fail english?

          @The Champ,

          Maybe I’m just lazy but the only thing I’d rather see live is baseball. I should mention that my football experience sucked because I had wack seats and the Meadowlands is a decrepit fogie of a stadium. Basketball, I was either in the box (which is truly the WORST seat in the house) or I was up close and just bored (it was a Knicks vs. Sixers game). Never seen live Hockey.

          • The One & True GEM… of the Ocean

            @Me fail english?,

            i will ONLY watch baseball in person. there’s something very fun and entertaining about spending a few hours at the ballpark. but baseball itself i find boring as hell.

            hockey is another sport i can only handle live and in living color.

          • P.

            @Me fail english?,

            Live hockey is hype. I went to my first Caps game 2 years ago and lost my voice and was ready to punch random people, and it’s not just because we were playing Boston.

            Yes, I just said “we,” meaning I actually follow hockey enough to do that.

        • The One & True GEM… of the Ocean

          @The Champ,

          indeed. you cant get close up shots of those nice round @$$es at the games. nor do you get entertaining commentating (unless of course you’re like my dad and you bring a radio and headphones).

          @The Champ,

          I like going to pro football games probably more than any other sport but I guess I might not like it as much if we didn’t have a dome here. Freezing at the game is not the move.

        • Leila

          @The Champ, “i think that works for every sport, except professional football. nfl games are much better to watch at home than at the game”

          I agree! I went to my first NFL game this year and honestly, I have more fun watching the games at home.

      i have NEVER been to a professional sporting event of any type. i did see Michael Jordan play once though. when i was like 9 he came to Germany on some USO soldier morale tour and played in a game with some US guys versus a German team. then he judged a slam dunk contest.

      but nope…not ever.

      i…suck.

    umm I dont know champ…. LOL I have had the misfortune of experiencing some extremely f!cked up soup.
    Applebee’s french onion…I mean really,. beef broth, onions cheese? but somehow the cheese had the consistency of wet cardboard and the soup tasted like what I wuold imagine pureed beef bologna would taste like..
    THE HORROR!

    the things I can count on to not disappoint…
    when in the mood to hear some rank dayum foolishness I can always look to my family, whose everyday goings on are far more ridiculous and unbelievable than anything Ive ever told yall about here.

    sleep..man..sleep is always welcome, its always there when I need it… I mean sleep is God’s most perfect gift…LOL

    and I just have to had I can routinely count on being disappointed by the perpetual state of healthcare.
    my sis was in a car wreck a couple weeks ago. Leg got stuck, jaws of life had to cut her out of the car….she goes to the emergency room, Her knee is as big as Champ’s Head. They gave her 2 weak a.s.s advil and an ace bandage and told her to see a specialist. she could not bear any weight on her knee at all. I kid you not they gave her an ace bandage and dishcarged her. We had to act a dayum fool, during which times my momma told the nurse that she was ignorant and ugly(she used a lot more profanity) WE find a specialist that agreed to see her that same day.
    She had a small fracture, a torn ACL and MCL.
    the ER sent her home with an ACE Bandage…..LOL WTF? And she has Great Insurance!

      And c/s on the nasty soup. I’ve had some terrible French Onion. Again, how is this isht even possible? I think mine was at Ruby Tuesday or smthg. Also, the “soups” my father makes when he gets bored. Just all types of cut up hot dogs and pickles in that shet. Diced ham and cloves and whatnot. The crackers DON’T help.

    *My daughter calling for money – I’ve come to expect this call on Subday after noticing that she has posted a new crop of club pics on FB
    *The police being called to any family gathering – someone is either fighting, about to fight or we are so loud that the neighbors think that we are fighting.
    *A friend of mine will find a reason to argue and stop talking to me until after the holidays – I always mess her head up and show up with holiday gifts for her entire family in March. Her husband says she tries the same thing with him Lol.
    *My best male friend will try & hit- If we spend more than 5 hours together. All of that ‘Brother’ crap goes out the window and he becomes a man and I am a woman. I actually time our activities and roll out before we hit the 5 hour mark.

      Freshly laundered clothes. Feels good. Smells good. Looks good.

      Sleep. I fell out at my desk today trying to work on this proposal (that’s still staring at me, not finished) and nearly missed my 5PM class. There were a few blissful seconds after I woke up, I didn’t have a care in the world.

      Beer. The cause of, and solution to, all of life’s problems.

      A good workout. Weights, cardio, or just time on the heavy bag. This might sound odd, but a good workout is damn near spiritual for me.

        @Panama Jackson, I appreciate being able to see what she does but I do have mixed feelings about it. On the one hand I can see what she is doing while often times I feel like I am spying on her. I’ve only had to call her out once. Saw pics of her drinking so I talked with her about underage drinking & being responsible etc. She is a 20 year old college senior…but still!! On the flip side I have to constantly watch what I post as well.

            @pgh muse,

            lmao sooooooooo true!!!!! i STAY illegally parking around the city of pgh after 6p. ive only ever gotten a parking tix between the hrs of 8a-6p. and usually theyre the cheapy $13 metered parking tix. i got one police p.t. but thats what i get for parking illegally at 4p while the cops were monitoring the construction zone across the street (i got too bold)

        @The Champ,

        Yup, it happens in The Chi. We got one right after leaving the club (lights on were at 2am)…I took pics and ish tryin to appeal it because the sign was turned the other way so we couldn’t see it…nothing came of it though so…*kanyeshrug*

          @Cheekie,

          lol! After club tix are the worst! Me and my girls were feeling all cute walking back to the car, iggin some dudes tryna holla from their car. I guess they caught the “stank” vibe from us cuz as we get in our car bout to pull off on they asses, one of em says “Oh yeah? Well…
          …THAT’S WHY YOU GOT A TICKET, HO!”

          Lol. but :( We didnt even notice the ticket up to that point. At least we aint get towed.

            @Me fail english?,

            Ouch!

            Yeah, “not getting towed” is definitely the blessing in disguise when getting a ticket.

        @The Champ, yeah that came out wrong. I meant to say he just decided to write me a ticket while talking to me. There is no way to make this long story short.

        See whahahappen was…I had put in loot in a meter, but for some odd reason it gave me a max time till 8:49pm. Its free after 9. Got back about 8:40 to just wait to make sure they didn’t give me a ticket anyways (they overzealous with that sh!t in Chicago). See a cop, in front of my ride. I make conversation about apparently making the right decision to come back instead just hoping nobody gave me a ticket. We make small talk cool. I walk over to the meter while talking to this cat. Get another receipt. Walk back to my car, he knocks on my window and gives me a ticket. Its 8:47pm. Da FCUK??!!!

        So we start talking (I start getting mad) about it, his buddies show up, they end up making accommodations for me in the back of their car for “making a threatening gesture” (which mind you was me walking IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION and throwing my arms in the air in frustration).

        They open the door, ask me what the problem is, I tell them, they close the door, go talk to the other one, come back, give me “advice” on how to handle the situation (just contest it and it’ll go away and if not I can reach him at said precinct as he hands me his card), and tell me its a minor misunderstanding and tell me to go home.

        Get home, realize later its the third ticket on my car, meaning they will boot it. Pull out the card, call the station, they tell me to come in today, I won’t, they tell me to go to the station and wait for him while they call him, and I do…and wait I did. He gets back, I tell him the shit needs to be dealt with immediately because its the third ticket and don’t want to get booted over no BS. I was too mad to wait and it made sense to me at the time. Argued and argued and well, ended up leaving (nothing was resolved) and paying the other tickets today. Moral of the story, don’t let friends borrow your car if they can’t pay the ticket. And of course, how do I say this nicely (since they let me go and all…this time) Chicago PD sux rectum.
