My Mind is Blown

March 7th, 2005 · 6 Comments

    You read my mind, dude; I was just listening to it in the car. “My guest today is The RZA.”

    Good times.

    I like how she pretends she’s real familiar with wu-tang. Terry Gross is straight gangsta, biatch.

    It was a lot less awkward than her interview with Chuck D, which got pretty ugly at times.

    And when she listed all his nicknames, I yelled out to my empty car, “She forgot zig zag zig Allah!”

    …and yet, ten times as much successful communication occured as during her O’Reilly interview (even adjusting for time, given his walkout).
