Bless Up, Chance the Rapper, and Life: u/Fio_Fiddlesworth ld imgur So my Mom sold one of her schnauzer puppies to an aspiring photographer DrSmashlove So u know how I said a few weeks ago that I tried all the healthy ice creams and I was done with them, and I was going back to real ice cream? About that. See there comes a time in yo life when u realize: u just ain’t about that life. It come at different times for different people. Some of u pretty ladies go to music festivals. And y’all got that friend Mandy. Mandy got a lil marketing gig in the city where she make a good wage. Went to a good school. Seem normal. But she different. U knew it when u hit Lollapalooza with her and watched her pop a Molly, pop three pills where she ain’t even know what pills they are, some cool white kid in a Larry Bird jersey just handed them to y’all so she took them, smoked a blunt, then snorted coke with that same kid in a port a potty. U seen her 15 min later vibing to Chance the Rapper while a lil bit of puke dribbled out the corner of her mouth while she looked around crazily and on that day, u had a realization: u ain’t bout that life. Mandy? Bout that life. U? Not about that life 😂. That’s me with ice cream. I went to Mariano super market. Grabbed some Ben and Jerry Cookie Dough. Seen it had 60 grams fat - 1,120 calories-pint. Gently caressed my 6 pack over my t shirt. And reflected on the fact that I’m just not bout that life. So I copped some skinny cow ice cream sandwiches. Each one got 160 calories. I eat two to get satisfied and that’s plenty. I gotta eat seven them b!tches to equal one pint of Ben and Jerry. I used to be bigger. Had a 36 waist. Ate whatever I wanted. I can’t go back to that place. I’m a new smash. U feel me? I’m in a different place. I’ll eat B + J once in a blue moon bc it (and Jeni’s) are still the GOATs but for daily use, imma stick to these skinny cows. P.s. Skinny cow please make them rectangular with a paper (not plastic) cover. On the rare occasion my mama bought us a box of generic ice cream sandwiches, peeling the paper off as it sticks to the ice cream on the side and then liiiiiicking it up the side was the best part. The adult equivalent is peeling the panties off a woman, seeing them stick to the Nani, and liiiiiiiicking...well, y’all get the point 🤗. Bless up! 😂😂😂

America, Crazy, and Fila: The '90s Are Officially Back! Tamagotchi ls Making a Comeback @balleralert The ‘90s Are Officially Back! Tamagotchi Is Making a Comeback - blogged by @miss_binky ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Look around. Everywhere you go, it’s pretty obvious – the 90s are back and in full effect. So for a generation that’s re-embracing Tommy Hilfiger, FILA, and Super Nintendo, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to hear that the Tamagotchi is making a comeback too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That’s right, the Japanese “virtual pet” will hit store shelves again in November (just in time for the holidays). Originally released in 1997, the toy had millions of kids addicted to feeding and cleaning up the poop of a pixelated “pet,” and drove parents and teachers alike crazy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Surprisingly, the re-release of the Tamagotchi will not have any real tech upgrades. The only difference between the 2017 and 1997 version is that it will be about 20% smaller. Bandai America, the company behind the toy, is banking on the love of nostalgia to fuel sales of the virtual pet. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to marketing director, Tara Badie: “For many Generation X kids, the Tamagotchi device can be considered America’s first and favorite digital pet. The enduring power of Tamagotchi is its clear expression that nurturing and love never goes out of style.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So the question is, will kids raised on smartphones and iPads see the allure in a colorless, pixelated blob the same we we did in the 90s?

Donald Trump, Football, and Friday: Jesse Williams Says National Anthem Controversy Is A Stunt to Increase Military Enroment @balleralert MS 「ORM E WILLIAMS ACTOR S NUCLEAR FORCE IS "A WAR DETERRENT" TO END US NUCLEAR 5 Jesse Williams Says National Anthem Controversy is A Stunt to Increase Military Enrollment - blogged by @janisemonee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Over the weekend, Donald Trump made headlines for some disturbing, yet not surprising, comments. This time Trump turned his attention to the NFL and the National Anthem. During a rally in Alabama on Friday he asked “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b**** off the field right now, he’s fired’?” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In response to Trump's comments, Jesse Williams appeared on MSNBC on Sunday and offered his thoughts on the matter. "It’s also important to realize this anthem thing is a scam,” Williams said. “This is not actually part of football. This was invented in 2009 from the government paying the NFL to market military recruitment to get more people to go off and fight wars to die.” He continued to say “This has nothing to do with the NFL, or American pastime, or tradition. This is to get boys and girls to go fly overseas and go kill people. They’re marketing. They’re pumping millions and millions of dollars into the NFL to get us to put on a pageant in front of the NFL football games to get you to go off and fight.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Grey's Anatomy actor has been vocal on various social issues and is just the latest of celebrities and public figures to continue the conversation surrounding the NFL and the National Anthem. Others like J. Cole, Lebron James, and Diddy have also weighed in.
