Afternoon Tea: 3.2.09

Check out The Roots on the set of their new gig, house band for Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Looking good fellas (we see you James!). Can you wait? I wonder if Black Thought will finally get the props he deserves for being one of the greatest lyricists…ever. {Village Voice}

Aren’t you tired of all of the “male enhancement” commercials? Let this be a word to the wise. In Moscow, a man won a bet worth $4300 when challenged to a 12-hour sex orgy. And then he died. {TheSun}

Ever hear a rhyme and go “wtf is he talking about?” I do. ALL THE TIME. Apparently I’m not the only one on the “we don’t believe you, you need more people” tip. Check out my new fav site, No Room Service, Just Snacks And Shit.

Wow. Guinean-Bissau president, Joao Bernardo Vieira  was killed as he tried to flee his home. It is said that the murder was a reprisal for the killing of army General Tagme Na Waie. This comes after Viera was reinstated as president after a military coup ousted him in 1999. Motive? Keep in mind that Guinea-Bissau is a hotbed for the cocaine trade in West Africa. African politics = real. {TimesOnline}

Here in NYC, the snow outside can’t stop, won’t stop. Perfect time for this compilation of the world’s most best affordable beach resorts. {T&L}

In the mood to drop it to some digital cumbia straight out of Buenos Aires, but can’t make it to Argentina? The Zizek party is coming to the United States!! Me=there. {XLR8R}
