Today in Everything, Ever

posted by on December 6 at 17:14 PM


Asian riff

Asian riff sheet music!
Xaxaxaxaxaxa! Moderato!

Ching chong

In Mandarin alone, there are more than 27 different characters (or words) that are pronounced as qing/ching. These include: 清, 靜, 請, 慶, 情, 青, 輕, 晴, 卿, 傾, 氫, 擎, 氰, 箐, 頃, 磬, 罄, 苘, 鯖, 蜻, 勍, 圊, 廎, 檠, 綮, 謦, and 黥.

Good! Now accusations of Rosie O’Donnell’s racism are completely without merit!

Ask Khia, especially about “gay ass” [sic] thuggery, and Lord knows—she will tell you what’s really hood:

Boy look here, my mouth is still hanging dropped down to the floor because I see this all the time hip hop. All these gay ass thugs that, want to be rappers, when they really soft as cotton taking more dick than me.


Houston, 1968:


I wish there were more about her, but…

Pullin’ hair / poppin’ nails.” Bitch, you don’t know Michelle, from a magical Kingdom.

Music: Yuzo Toyama: Etenraku. Text: Poetically arranged from an interview with Remy Ma, XXL Magazine, December 2007, p. 90:

Mein gott en himmel...this post is more spastic and schizophrenic than Brittney Spears and makes less sense than a Mudede post. I swear...this was so frenetic that it had me in seizures before I could even click the random hyperlinks!! *COHESION* and *CLARITY*....maybe I came to the wrong site, but this is ridiculous...even by SLOG standards (or lack thereof)...

I luv this shit!

The Asian Riff always sounded more allegro ma non troppo to me.

Cunei4m, this was a "Today in Everything" post, not "Today in Only One Thing."

Why does Mr. Scholl's mother sound like the grandma in that whatever-carrier cell phone commercial? Not trying to be offensive, but seriously, is that how...never mind.

Seriously, the octupus fucking the chick was old MONTHS ago when Charles posted it... even if yours was in video form.

Well, obvs. the point of the video is Remy Ma. But you're right; the octopus thing is old. Like 180-something years old.

The Rosie comment: Actually the "ching chong" thing is a bit in poor taste, but not horribly racist. I've been studying Mandarin in Beijing for the past year and similar sounds do exist, like "zhong, chong, qing, jing." Although there is the matter of Chinese being a complex tonal language, it does sound a little "sing song-y, ching chong-y" to the uninitiated. Oh, and the View is for shitheads who believe Jesus predates cavemen.

Man! I clicked on the "gay ass thugs," and all I got was Gordon from Sesame Street talking about a toy horse he had as a kid. Now maybe I'm out of the loop, but I don' think that constitutes gay ass thugery. What gives?

Can your burn that Effie Dropbottom record for me?


Posted by It's Mark Mitchell | December 7, 2007 10:04 AM

I WISH I had that record. It's extremely rare, having been issued on a private Houston label. There is very little info on her or the album, but here's the reverse side of the LP, for your reading pleasure.

Damn you and that Asian Riff! Now I have "Kung Fu Fighting" stuck in my head.
