My own flesh and blood told me I looked like Morris Day in this wedding DJ getup I wore this weekend.

Morris Day.

No chill.

Also caught a Russell Wilson comparison again. That’s a problem. He’s not going to get any less notorious in this area.

The people who compare me to people I don’t look like are almost uniformly white people, but both of these comparisons came from people of color. Is it the haircut? The summer skin color?

I see a couple differences here.

Fact-checking

Whitney Houston’s album - like she only had one album? SMH - didn’t go #1 after her untimely passing. Her Greatest Hits album charted at #6 the week after her death, and Whitney had twenty-eight songs in the iTunes top 100 that week.

Follow-up

So as the week has gone on, I keep seeing more rememberances of Robin Williams. The one that stood out to me was Marc Maron reposting an episode of WTF where he interviewed Robin. The hardest thing about listening to this podcast is the honest sadness that you hear in Maron’s voice at the beginning and end. http://www.stitcher.com/s?eid=35080658

Also this quick read from Brain Pickings: http://www.brainpickings.org/index.php/2014/08/15/o-captain-my-captain/

******

We might want to follow up on this on a later show: Henry Rollins wrote a really callous thing about suicide after Robin Williams, calling people who commit suicide “people who blew it”, and Megan Seling rightfully lit him up for it:

No, Henry Rollins, Fuck You And Your Stupid Ideas About Suicide

grown. ass. men.

you scared she gonna strike out yr precious baby boy? OH TOO LATE.

they were doing a special on her on one of the news channels at the gym. i didnt have the headphones so i couldnt hear the story, but one of the photos they showed was of a little girl in the crowd holding up a sign that said “I want to throw like a girl.” For every pathetic, insecure grown man who is threatened by this amazingly talented girl, hopefully there is another little girl who is inspired. But that she has to put up wit this kind of abuse even though she is OBJECTIVELY the best pitcher in the league right now and can throw a ball SEVENTY MILES PER HOUR is absolutely uncalled for. She is truly phenomenal, and those dads can all go eat shit and live

Go on with your bad self

I love that, in a brief interview I got to see, she stated that her main goal was to have more girls play ball so that “we could maybe get our own locker room.” Like, that’s all she wanted, and then she went back to talking about how winning is a TEAM effort and that the reporter should interview the rest of the team, too.
I LOVE THIS ONE.

CNN is just the worst. That quote isn’t from Davis, it’s from Stephanie Tuck, who played little league ball many years ago, and whoever makes the graphics at CNN is bad at reading.

Mo’ne Davis has said a ton of cool things, dunno why they didn’t go with one of those.

Maybe Davis has been heckled by dads - that would be thoroughly unsurprising - but she didn’t mention it to CNN.
