Weekly Giftbasket: Rap Lobster Edition

These are the critical bits that found their way across the wires this week. I offer them up for your Thursday amusement knowing that, basically, you've stopped working by this point.

1. Cookin with Coolio

With a black toque topping his famous twisted braids, this "ghetto witchdoctor superstar chef" implores you to "get your ass into that kitchen, baby."

No ordinary Food Network nonsense, this is raunch-flavored 2.0 at its best. Cookin with Coolio is shown only on the internet, and viewers are encouraged to "Live the Dream, Win a Pepper" by posting their video responses. Jenni Powell did, and her winning video earned this comment from Coolio:

"He seemed like one of those salad eatin' bitches so she made him a Coolio Caprese salad. It worked out, because Jenni got his panties off..."
The promo can be seen right here:

2. Nuestro Gran Amigo

After watching this video, I for uno don't understand how Obama did not kill the popular vote in Texas.

Familias unidas, seguras y hasta con plan de saluuuud!!

Stephen Malkmus is Still Damn Hot

Here's a little trinket for those of you who, like me, wore the tape out of your Crooked Rain cassette back in '94:

He can hit my plane down anytime...

4. And for the 9 People Who Have not Already Seen This...
"Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolor disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life?"

I read every one of those books as a child. Does that explain anything?

Thanks so much for the Obama video. I had not seen that. It made me smile really el-biggo. Made me miss Mexico.

Anyway - I posted it on my angry political blog with some link love back atcha.
