Rihanna on Chris

So a several day news blitz has finally come to an end tonight (hopefully) on 20/20 with the Dianne Sawyer interviewing Rihanna about the now legendary abuse that happened so many months ago.
My question is why now? Why are you coming to tell this story so many months later?
Did it have to do with the push back she admitted receiving in the interview from her corporate endorsers? Is it perfect free publicity for the new album that is dropping soon? Or is it that she is finally at a place where she can discuss this?
Whatever her reason I am glad that Chris has talked to Larry King and Rihanna now has had her moment to get her version of the story out... that this goes away. Because neither one of them are mature enough to be dealing with this in the media spotlight. There are a lot of issues ere that need to be dealt with and its unfortunate that their parents and handlers are allowing this to be played out in public. Now I must say she looked absolutely amazing as she recounted the story of the night and why she went back to him, but hopefully we are now done.

So You Think You Can Dance... season 6 begins

I thought this past summer's series was mediocre at best... and so far this season of So You Think You Can Dance is not grabbing my attention. But as a fan of dance I will watch faithfully each week.

I have always been a fan of dance, even before my years working at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, where I was exposed to many different dance styles. But Tap has never been a favorite... never even a like for me. Very surprised that they decided on three tappers... and their opening introductions are so annoying. I was disappointed at the judges decision to send Arianna home. Not only was she a cutey... but she was by far not the worse female dancer last night.

Victor Smalley and Bianca's Travis Wall's routine was by far my favorite. Victor is a cute guy and probably the only thing to swoon over this season. He definitely brought it in that routine. The contemporary piece was steamy, passionate, and filled with emotions, that also required a lot of strength to accomplish the moves.

I am excited to see what the choreographers bring this season while Victor is a cutey... I guess every season can't have Danny Tidwell...

just 4 laughs: Top 60 Ghetto Names...

One thing that annoys the shit out of me is stupidity. Because stupidty can be prevented by listening and educating yourself on the subject at hand.

Yesterday the DC Council held an open forum for citizens to speak about the upcoming vote on the Same Sex Marriage Bill before the council. Below you have a prime case of stupidity.

I wish people would understand two things: (1) The United States of America Constitution's 1st Amendement states that there is a freedom of religion in this country. This means the government can not pass a bill based on your religious beliefs on how I should conduct my life. "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof" (2) this is not even a religious debate... so keep your Bible quotes in your church where they belong.

My New Toy... HTC Hero

Just as I was considering abandoning Sprint after an 8 year run. They finally released the best phone they have offered on their service in some time.

I am on week 2 of Sprint's version of the HTC Hero and I must say so far i am quite pleased. There are so many things I like about the phone. The new Android platform allows for a new cell phone experience on this service. One of my favorite features is the ability to link your contacts with your social networking contacts. So now I can see all of the contact information and latest Facebook update, message or picture. The customizable display and 5.0 megapixel camera with zooming features are also quite hot.

The only drawback that I have experienced so far is the short battery life. While I can go the entire work day without it dying... I would be nervous to go from work to dinner or drinks without loosing all battery life. Luckily my bestfriend once had an HTC phone so I have a new car charger and backup charger for the office coming soon.

Good going Sprint hopefully this phone and the great plans you have will keep you a float for awhile longer.
