The LuLac Edition #901, Aug. 8th, 2009

SNAPPLE "REAL FACT" #682, more turkeys are raised in California than any other state in the union.



A few weeks back the rapper Lil’ Wayne performed at the Toyota Pavilion on Montage Mountain. Fights broke out and a few people had some problems. One young man was also stabbed. I sat down with a young woman (a soon to be Junior at one of the local high schools) and asked her a few questions about the concert.
Q: Did you go to the Lil' Wayne concert?
A: Yes. Me, my girl friend and these three guys. We had a blast.
Q: What do you see in his music?
A: He’s real, you know.
Q: How so?
A: Well, his songs tell a story. Your age group should respect that, you had that guy who got killed on the highway driving, the guy in the plane…..
Q: You mean Harry Chapin and Jim Croce?
A: I guess.
Q: So Lil' Wayne tells stories?
A: Yeah. Prom Queen. The music video is about Lil' Wayne in high school falling in love with a girl, but she dissed him for someone else when she became prom queen. As they get older , Lil Wayne becomes famous, while she becomes pregnant with the baby of her ex-boyfriend, who has left her.
Q: That’s a story, you’re right about that. Do you identify with the Prom Queen?
A: No, Prom Queens are stupid *****.
Q: Whoa, where’d you hear a word like that?
A: Please.
Q: Do those words come easy for rappers?
A: It’s freedom of speech.
Q: How did Lil' Wayne get his start?
A: Rapping into some rapper’s answering machine, then he got a break from the guy.
Q: Were you near the fights?
A: Naw, wish we were. See our guys kick some butt. We tried to get some purple dank.
Q: Did you?
A: Not telling.
Q: Do you think your “friends” would kick butt if they could? Maybe to impress you?
A: No, they’re weenies. Besides, if they got busted, I’d be stranded for a ride!
Q: Are you open to other music like classic rock and jazz.
A: I am, I bet you’re not.
Q: You’re correct. You have a good bullshit detector.
A: If you lived with my family………..
Q: Do your parents like Lil' Wayne?
A: I don’t live with either of them, I live with my grandma.
Q: Are you rebellious?
A: No. I just can’t stand them fighting. So I left. I got a big ass tattoo of Gang Star on my back. I guess that was a way to rebel and say **** you.
Q: Have they seen it?
A: My mom knows I have it.
B: How ‘bout your dad and grandma?
A: No. I play the modesty card with both of them. They have no idea.

Next time interview a young person with something to offer. Todays interview subject will do well to wind up with a GED and clerking at the Family Dollar Store. Oh well, whatever.

Unfortunately, this is America's future; the slacker college student with no "real" opinion on real things. This young woman will soon be under the tutalage of one of my peers; my heart goes out to him. Of course, since we cannot or will not fail students in our "everybody's number 1" society of today, what should we expect of youthful intelligence?? Class dismissed.

Rubbish. Interview a high school female with great SATs and a high class-rank and you'll get the same answers, and the same attitude. Nowadays, it's cool to be smart, you can be both at the very same time, which just might be one of the biggest differences between this generation and ours.

The interview is a good addition to LuLac, but as noted by 11:11shouldnt be wasted on folks with nothing to contribute.
Congrats on No#900 and continued success in your future endeavors.

Whats become of the Bishop?
He seems to be laying low for a while now. Perhaps the short fall on the Bishops Appeal sent a message, but most likely not the right message. He is like a submarine out in the harbor. You know he's gonna fire on someone or something soon. Just curious as to who or what it will be. One thing for sure, he's gonna come out with
both barrels blazing like a comic book action figure in purple robe and spectacular headgear!

Jeez, there seems to be the same visceral reaction to your "rappet" interview as to your Sara Palin posts.
THAT'S disturbing.
