MOSCOW – A Russian chimpanzee has been sent to rehab by zookeepers to cure the smoking and beer-drinking habits he has picked up, a popular daily reported on Friday. An ex-performer, Zhora became aggressive at his circus and was transferred to a zoo in the southern Russian city of Rostov, where he fathered several baby chimps, learned to draw with markers and picked up his two vices.

“The beer and cigarettes were ruining him. He would pester passers-by for booze,” the Komsomolskaya Pravda paper said.

It added he has now been transferred to the city of Kazan, about 800 km (500 miles) east of Moscow, for rehabilitation treatment.

Labeled as one of the greatest classics in Hip Hop Raekwon the Chef’s solo effort “Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…” still sounds as fresh as in 1995.

Thanks to dirt_dog of Philaflava the music world can now rejoice as a digitized version of Rae’s promotional cassette hits the internet.


Gawker website says Jennifer Lopez’s Career is Over?

Boy Brian Moylan, woke up on the wrong side of bed when it comes to Jennifer Lopez. I saw this blog post on Gawker and was like damn this guy really has it in for her for some reason. I understand that she has not had a big hit in awhile but to totally count her out is a little premature. Anyway here is his rant as to why J.Lo is no more.

So, sorry, Ms. Lopez, we’re through with you. You can’t sell a track and you can’t open a film. Also, you’re bland, boring, and otherwise not as talented as plenty of the other people who are competing for our ever-diminishing attention. We’re not going to care about your movies or songs. We’re not going to read about your babies or break-ups. We’re not going to follow the “10 Steps to JLo’s Butt” article in Shape. You’re over. We are taking away your star status. You can go ahead and continue selling your horrible perfume(s) and a bunch of crazy diehard fans will lap it up and still love you. As far as the rest of us goes, you’re through. I’d like to say it’s been fun, but it really never has been. And I’m pretty glad that it’s over.

Shocker: Ex-Cop Pleads Guilty In Hurricane Katrina Killing Probe: 2 Shot, Killed On Danziger Bridge

This story is such a shocker. After going thru a terrible deadly hurricane and looking for food for survival, that these men would be shot and killed by police. Unbelievable.

via Huff Post

NEW ORLEANS — In Hurricane Katrina’s chaotic aftermath, police shot six people – killing two – as they crossed a bridge in search of food. For years the case was a shocking symbol of the confusion and violence that swept through the flooded city. On Wednesday it became a mark of shame for the police department.

As victims’ relatives watched from the courtroom gallery, a retired lieutenant who supervised the department’s probe of the shootings pleaded guilty to orchestrating a cover-up to conceal that police gunned down unarmed civilians.

Michael Lohman, a 21-year veteran of the force, pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to obstruct justice. Prosecutors said Lohman and other unidentified officers conspired to fabricate witness statements, falsify reports of the incident and plant a gun in an attempt to make it appear the killings were justified.

U.S. Attorney Jim Letten said the investigation is continuing and would not say whether higher-ranking officials of the police department might be involved.

Lohman’s plea brought at least some closure to families of victims in the best-known of several violent incidents that raised questions about police conduct immediately after Katrina. The shootings happened on Sept. 4, 2005, six days after the storm smashed levees and flooded 80 percent of the city.

Survivors have said the officers fired at unarmed people who were crossing to get food at a grocery store. The officers claimed they opened fire only after being shot at. Ronald Madison, 40 and mentally disabled, and James Brissette, 19, were killed and four others were wounded.

“We are very, very happy about the progress that the FBI and the U.S. Justice Department have made,” said Romell Madison, Ronald’s brother. “The people of New Orleans should be relieved that there is still justice for everybody here.”

TYRA BANKS’ Beauty Inside & Out Campaign

Tyra Banks Beauty Iniside and Out Campaign

Tyra Banks launches Beauty Inside & Out Campaign today.

With an extensive career as a super model and hit series “America’s Next Top Model,” it would be an understatement to say that Tyra Banks knows a thing or two about being beautiful.

However, Tyra continues to use her celebrity and her talk show “Tyra” to inspire women of all shapes and sizes to embrace their “Beauty Inside & Out.”

I think it is always good to see people confronting issues concerning body image because when we look in the mirror we have to embrace ourselves where we are today.  We have to reject the narrow-minded ideals of beauty that are often projected and range from having the biggest “ghetto booty” to being dangerously thin as a result of anorexia or bulimia.

Seniors are Smoking More Weed Than Ever

Yes Grandma has a bong. She is lighting up the Kush with Grandpa and they don’t care what you guys think.

via Yahoo

MIAMI – In her 88 years, Florence Siegel has learned how to relax: A glass of red wine. A crisp copy of The New York Times, if she can wrest it from her husband. Some classical music, preferably Bach. And every night like clockwork, she lifts a pipe to her lips and smokes marijuana.

Long a fixture among young people, use of the country’s most popular illicit drug is now growing among the AARP set, as the massive generation of baby boomers who came of age in the 1960s and ’70s grows older.

The number of people aged 50 and older reporting marijuana use in the prior year went up from 1.9 percent to 2.9 percent from 2002 to 2008, according to surveys from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin Has Baby Mama Drama, Another Woman Claims Sexual Harassment

Jeffrey Toobin is a pompous asshole. I have seen him past judgments on people ever since the OJ case and now he has his own ‘baby drama’. How ironic that this media whore would find himself in a legal battle over paternity with his lover, while he is married with two kids. This will definitely bring him back down to earth in a major way. Read more below:

via Huff Post

CNN legal analyst Jeff Toobin was in court Wednesday for a case of his own, according to the New York Daily News.

Toobin, 49, appeared in Manhattan Family Court along with rumored former lover Casey Greenfield, the 36-year-old daughter of CBS News analyst Jeff Greenfield. Greenfield gave birth to a baby boy last spring, and though she wouldn’t say then, the Daily News reports she now claims Toobin is the father.
