ADMITEDLY, SOME DAYS ON THE STRIP ARE FUNNIER THAN OTHERS, BUT THE ARTWORK IS CONSISTENT, AND VERY, VERY GOOD. WHO AM I TO SAY THOUGH? JUST ANOTHER MARYLANDER PROUD TO SEE SOMEONE FROM HOME "MAKE IT", EVEN THOUGH I GUESS "MAKING IT" ISN'T ALWAYS WHAT IT IS "CRACKED UP TO BE". >
... you gotta go out >thinking you're the shit or >you fold.-THAT'S TO BE EXPECTED I S'POSE. LOOK AT BRYANT GUMBEL. YOU THINK HE COULD DO WHAT HE DOES AS WELL AS HE DOES EVERYDAY IF HE WAS 'MEELY-MOUTHED' AND 'COW-TOWED(sp?)' TO THOSE WHITE PEOPLE EVERYDAY? HE "KNOWS" HE HAS TO BE BETTER THAN THEM TO MAKE IT. HE MAKES NO 'BONES' ABOUT THAT EITHER, WHICH IS WHY THEY THINK HE IS AN ARROGANT ASSHOLE. > I'm combative.

HOPEFULLY THINGS WILL SETTLE DOWN BETWEEN Y'ALL IN TIME. > When a man holds >his head up while he's >broke - he's a trooper. >When he holds it up >when he's paid - he's >an asshole.- U AIN'T NEVER LIED....
when I >tried to play Captain and >give everyone money and/or jobs >to rescue them from the >drudgery of the office - >it only made things worse. >I went broke and they >felt resentful and unequal.-I GUESS THAT'S WHAT MC HAMMER FACED AS WELL, WHICH PEOPLE FAIL TO APPRECIATE WHEN THEY ARE SO BUSY MAKING FUN OF HIM, A MAN WHO ACTUALLY SEEMED TO HAVE A GOOD HEART, THE QUALITY OF HIS RAP MUSIC NOTWITHSTANDING.... > >Because I know how little fun >I have, because I know >how hard life under a >perpetual deadline is, it's difficult >for me to imagine that >anyone would think I'm living >it up.- WE WITHOUT MONEY THINK "EVERYBODY" WITH MONEY IS LIVING IT UP. WE HAVE NO WAY OF KNOWING ANYTHING DIFFERENT.
Because I know >how unhappy I am with >my own work - it's >hard for me to imagine >anyone thinking I have a >big head.-WELL, YOU SAID YOURSELF THAT YOU HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ARROGANT, BUT IF YOUR FRIENDS ALREADY KNEW THAT ABOUT YOU BEFORE THE BOONTHANG, THERE WAS NO NEED TO GET ALL "BROKEN UP" ABOUT IT AFTERWARDS. THEN AGAIN, THEY SAY "MONEY &/OR SEX CHANGES 'EVERYTHING'"..... >

And who knows >- soon, I might not >be doing that.-WELL I GUESS I "REALLY" NEED TO SUBSCRIBE TO THE NEWSPAPER NOW, SO I CAN START SAVING UP HARD COPIES OF THE BOONDIGGEDY TO HANG UP AROUND MY OFFICE. IN THE LONG RUN, YOU MUST DO WHAT'S BEST FOR YOU BRAH, SOMEONE EARLIER IN THIS POST ADVISED YOU TO NOT LET ANYONE ELSE "SCRIPT YOU". THAT SAYS IT ALL RIGHT THERE.
peace and blessings.
