Afternoon Tea 9.10.08

Word on the street is that pop piper Usher and wifey Tameka Foster and expecting their second child.  Looking forward to a few more cheesy Essence covers.  {People} .

Looks like another of the world’s most interesting dictators might be kicking the bucket soon.  Although North Korea has been doing a good job of denying Kim Jong-il is very sick, rumors of illness are going around after he failed to appear at a military parade.  …On another note is it f**ked up that every time I think of Kim Jong-il I think of Team America? {BBC}

A 72-year-old Ex-Ku Klux Klansman, James Ford Seale, was convicted and sentenced to three life terms for kidnapping and killing two black teens back in ’64.  Two weeks later the courts have agreed that the legal statute of limitations was already long gone.  I have no idea how to feel about this… Thoughts ladies? {BBC}

It seems like every summer is the summer of natural disasters.  While the Caribbean is getting hit hard by hurricane after destructive hurricane and China is working it out after another mud slide, a 6.1 magnitude earthquake shatters Southern Iran… smh {Globe and Mail}

After traipsing across the world, A-Trak and Boys Noize are heading west to Europe and North America and have joined forces with another mash-up artist, Golden Girl (not Golden Girl as in old, but Golden Girl as in she’s gonna save the nation) Santogold.   Peep the schedule here. Also, new gorgeous track-master Flying Lotus and the RZA are all set to play at We the People. {XLR8R}

—Hump day, slump day.  One more day til the Coney Island, Astroland and the Cyclone. Many Nathan’s Hotdogs will be consumed!
