What kind of women names her son Talib?

Posted by Anonymous | October 6, 2011 7:36 PM

Talib ain't so bad. I believe it's Nubian for a hummus-like spread which features mashed chick peas and assorted green shrubs from the banks of the mighty Nile.

I didn't occupy wall street yet, but earlier today I occupied a seat at Mamouns.

I guess that's good enough. When it comes to occupying things, it's best not to overdo it. Unless you want to. I like to occupy crawlspaces, but I don't find crawlspaces all that often.

The S P I N DOCS will be occupying Brooklyn Bowl On the 23rd and Bowery on the 13th. Then the world.

I'm occupying my mattress, who's with me?

You don't need to occupy Wall Street when daddy pays your bills.

10:33 WAY too late for that
Side note - notice all the consumer electronics being used in the vid. Now, big corporations (funded by banks) wouldn't be the source of all those consumer electronics devices, would they? Hmmm?

If the current state of our economy further deteriorates to depths we've never experienced before, it's very likely that crime levels will elevate to a point that surpasses that 80's in NYC. Even as a kid that shit wasn't cool and I was lucky enough to have two loving, hard working parents that took care of me.

I mention this because Hip Hop has focused (and in certain cases) glorified crime and violence for many years.

I was very happy to hear that Talib made it down there to plant some positive seeds for the hip hop community by (attempting) to shit the hip hop community's focus away from the typical subject matter of that genre. (Although he's probably not the first, or considered a mianstream hip hop guy for that matter)

I know it's fun and very tempting to hang on to and constantly express a cynical view of the current situation (and your fellow BV posters), but to completely turn a blind eye and prentend that you are outside of situation is to turn a blind eye to some serious ramifications down the road.... while you are "minding your own business" on Kent st. eating hummus.

9:28 - way too earnest bro. this is BV. just drop a hummus joke, call someone a faggot, move on.

Whats he promoting?

Posted by Anonymous | October 7, 2011 9:44 AM

hey 8:16 maybe some idiots down there are calling to ban all corporations but the overwhelming majority of us believe that corporations should exist and be profitable, but should not be buying influence in government and writing legislation.

Fecal matter occupy's my gf's mouth on a nightly basis

Posted by Anonymous | October 7, 2011 10:14 AM

so lemme get this straight ...

the proposal is that instead of corporations (private entities) interacting with the federal government (corrupt institution) that all that should be consolidated under a larger, more corrupt federal government?

no thanks.

Hey 9:47 - I read your points, they seem fair and nice. Maybe you could read some of the Tea Party points from primary sources, rather than making us into caricatures and ascribing straw man masks onto our motives, "members", and actions? You might be surprised at how close what you wrote is to what the Tea Party exists for.

(generally, to ows sympathizers) You all think YOU all can be that intellectually honest and objective?

Posted by Anonymous | October 7, 2011 10:23 AM

@9:28 De La Soul used to rap about holding a piece of doodoo in their hand and getting haircuts. This guy is not the first to "shit" the focus away from bitches and guns.

Posted by Anonymous | October 7, 2011 10:26 AM

Tea Party = Occupy Wall Street

Same difference.

Posted by Anonymous | October 7, 2011 10:36 AM

larger, more corrupt federal government = DMV efficiency applied to energy, healthcare, etc.

for new gov't workers: lifetime pension plans, better benefits (than what they mete out), union-enforced 35 hour workweeks

for us: no competition, no efficiency, no motivation for customer service, long lines, poor service, denied claims, hassles

where can I sign up?

i visited occupy wall street yesterday afternoon finally. i was thrilled to see the crusties and their dogs sleeping all over the place. isnt that what they do on the reg anyway in tompkins square?

Posted by Anonymous | October 7, 2011 10:57 AM

i'm not going down there until they book better musical acts. who the fuck wants to bear the smell to see Talique Whozit?

"Tea Party = Occupy Wall Street"

No, not true. The teabag nitwits support the the repubs, OWS supports no one. they are not affiliated w a political institution. it's more like amorphous anarchy, a think tank of sorts.

@ 10:26 ... yeah I know. And there are rappers out there that never strayed from that approach to hip hop.

Of course things changed dramatically since then, which is what I was referring to.

Funny how hip hop more innocent back then when things were pretty tough (barring Grandmaster Flash)

Yeah, grammar errors and mispellings everywhere... one of my shortcomings (shrug)

Thx for reading my post.

I just spit coffee through my nose.
Keep telling yourself that, Shirley.
And remember, if you sing reeeeally hard you can stop that rain.

This moment of silence for billionaire Steve Jobs brought to you, in part, by billionaire inside trader George Soros.


How amorphous.
