It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

So some rapper is bitching because the prison issued uniform features the color pink.

Apparently, being made to wear a pink prison uniform is "disrespectful"

This asshat goes on to say how once upon a time he enjoyed spending time in jail, it was a big old party, doncha know, but now that he wears pink boxers, it's not where he wants to be.. it's nothing.


There's a really simple solution to not having to wear pink underwear, you moron. DON'T GO TO FREAKING PRISON.

Why do I feel ZERO sympathy for this jerkoff?

And dude, there's NO respect in being a convict, regardless of the color of your tighty whiteys. Or should I say Stinky Pinkies?

Borderline symptom of the day: annoyedannoyed

I saw that too...and I was like--dude, get a grip! what a loser. I absolutely agree with you.

I bet he's cute in pink though! ha

Got link?

NEVERMIND! Found link. It's a good color for him. I am happy with the AZ prison system for this step. (:

It's not like they're making him wear a thong. I wonder if he'll grow up at all from this? Doubtful.

Is he in Arizona?

I love that sheriff.

There is something about that, on both sides, that bugs me. I'm going to have to think about it (or let it fester in my brain) until it gels.

As an aside...pink is supposed to be a calming color too, if I recall right. I went to the University of Iowa, and the head football coach at that time, Hayden Fry, had the visitors locker room painted pink. It drove the Bo Schembechler crazy apparently. But Hayden was a sly ol' fox, and a psych major from what I recall...there's something to the pink that is suppose to take you down a notch and not make you as aggressive.

So, really, it seems that that Sheriff has the right idea, plus, probably more underwear that not's being stolen!

For me it's not a prisoner feeling 'dissed', it's a broader thing in society where people feel entitled to x y or z without working for it. Especially (and no offence to anyone who truly needs it) the ones you know on social assistance who gripe because, for example, 'my case worker doesn't do nothing for me' or 'I can't get cable TV now cause they don't pay me enough'.

There's not enough grattitude to just be in a free and just society. Everybody wants the kingdom and already feels it is owed to them.

DMX is just a raging ball of douchebaggery anyway. He needs to ATFU and media needs to quit giving his stupid ass attention.

Real men suck it up and deal, yo.

The line of "reasoning" seems to go: Pink is associated with women. If I wear pink, they'll think I'm effeminate, and therefore Teh Ghey. And since being gay is like, the WORST THING EVAR (because it means being effeminate), then I can't wear pink.

Also, our "musician" is missing the point -- if he's in prison he can't tour, and live performance is where the money comes from in the biz these days.
