YouTube, Yahoo, DailyMotion, Blip.tv and Viddler Inez Sainz and Christine O’Donnell may not have anything to do with each other at first glance, but both are at the epicenter of sexual hypocrisy in America. Christine O’Donnell Tea Party Member Christine O’Donnell, a marketing consultant, beat Delaware GOP Senator Mike Castle for the right to represent the Republican Party in that state’s Senate Race. Now, according to Rachel Maddow, Christine O’Donnell has some weird issue with sex. In 1996,...

Inés Sainz, Tv Azteca broadcaster, originally uploaded by jrsnchzhrs. Did you get an eyefull of those legs? Well, they belong to Ines Sainz and get they get her a lot of attention and access to, for example, Matt Leinart (who’s biceps she’s measured a while back) or Terrell Owens (who she gets access to when others don’t). At first this blogger wasn’t going to weigh in on the Ines Sainz issue. If you don’t know, Ines Sainz is the female broadcaster who accused the New York Jets players of sexual harassment,...

The 99ers need a Tier 5 unemployment extension now, but is Congress listening? Despite hopes that Debbie Stabenow’s Americans Want to Work Act S3706 will make its way through Congress and to the President, currently this bill is not even on the Senate docket. We are dealing with an election year and there could be many distractions along the way. One thing is certain, it cannot become law until it gets to the floor for a vote. 99 weeks are not enough for millions of unemployed Americans and so Stabenow’s bill will add an additional...

Oakland City Hall Gwillym Martin’s an Oakland Resident and taxpayer who first found this blogger on Facebook and sent via email a copy of a complaint filed against the City of Oakland. Now people file lawsuits all the time, and at times for silly reasons; not in this case. But any media person who seeks to pick up on this story should make sure they understand it first. Read on. Martin filed a lawsuit in Alameda County Superior Court that specifically names City Administrator Dan Lindheim, CEDA (Community and Economic...

Lady Gaga VMA dress: real meat Lady Gaga won the majority of the awards at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards last Sunday night. Twitter was filled with “little monsters” jubilant about every single win, and others who were getting a bit annoyed at the predictability of the outcome. It is debatable whether the right artists won – or if it just a popularity contest. The fans rule the votes, but it seems as though some of the Lady Gaga fans voted for her in every category regardless of whether or not another artist...

Deadspin’s Black Row on  There are times this blogger likes Deadspin, and others where the whole blog just sucks. Today, Deadspin sucks. Why? Because in short order, the September 13th edition of the sports blog managed to mar the image of black sports legends Joe Morgan, Tony Dungy, and John Salley, all right in a row on on blog issue. And never mind that Salley’s an invited contributor, Deadspin’s asking him to basically make himself look like Tiger Woods before Thanksgiving 2009. Even if he’s...

Jay Mariotti and Girlfriend (?) (Deadspin.com) ESPN Personality and former AOL Fanhouse Columnist Jay Mariotti, after being declared all but done at ESPN, panned on Twitter, and then canned from AOL Fanhouse, is not breathing a sign of relief, because after the LA County District Attorney announced it was dropping domestic abuse charges against him last Thursday, The LA City Attorney slapped 7 misdemeanors on him: 4 domestic violence charges, false imprisonment, vandalism and grand theft according to TMZ.com. Yes, he’s accused...

The Kansas City Chief’s Dexter Mccluster, Javiar Arenas, and Eric Berry are rookies that opened the New Arrowhead Stadium with a win against The San Diego Chargers. So much for the yearly “Chargers are the best in the AFC West” media mantra that this blogger’s sick of. Not a fan of the Chiefs, but it was nice to see them beat the Chargers. They had to be, and are, a vastly different team. According to ESPN’s Trent Dilfer, Chief’s Head Coach Todd Haley said they were essentially better, stronger,...

Oakland’s bar scene has really improved over the last five years. Where there were one or two good bars downtown ten years ago, now there’s arguably six of them. You know the environment’s good when there’s a bartender competition. The problem is such events have been all-male or mostly male. Not anymore. On October 5th, 2010, Pican Restaurant will play host to the first Oakland Female Bartender Competition sponsored by Grand Manier and Zennie62.com. A Great Idea. How the idea started goes back to a video I...

Today at 8 p.m the final 4 contestants of the MTV Bachelor Pad (Kiptyn Locke and Tenley Molzahn, David Good and Natalie Gertz went into the Semi -final not knowing what the final challenge was. Only knowing it was in front of a live studio audience along with the people they voted off to get to that point. At first the people who were voted off the show were given the chance to ask the final four personal questions. If you remember the last time we saw Michelle, she got in an argument with Tenley. So Chris Harrison, the host of the...

Kat Schawarzenegger Katherine Schwarzenegger, the daughter of California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and California’s First Lady Maria Shriver, has a new book out with a great message for young girls: love yourself. First, this blogger has to note that Katherine Schwarzenegger has a massively good publicity machine which undoubtedly is due to her father’s celebrity status and connections. As of this writing, Katherine Schwarzenegger’s number one on Google Trends and she doesn’t even have a sex tape!...

Shock G of Digital Underground speaks on his time with 2Pac photo credit: ani yapundzhyan As we look back on the life and times of Tupac Amaru Shakur we decided to dig in the crates and pull out an old interview we did with Shock G of Digital Underground. Here Shock G says his proudest moment was hearing 2 Pac talk about how his fondest years were spent being a part of the DU camp. In this interview Shock G talks about the importance of 2Pac in Hip Hop culture and why he and his band mates would drop everything to accommodate 2Pac’s...

Zennie62.com is proud to officially announce that the legendary Hip Hop Journalist and Oaklander, Davey D (Dave Cook), has joined Zennie62.com as a featured blogger. Davey D has his own area called “Hip Hop News with Davey D.” Frankly, for the number of people Davey D knows and has known in the Hip Hop community, from Mos Def to Oakland’s Too Short, and Tupac Shakur, it’s almost tragic that Davey D’s work and voice has not been promoted and celebrated. That’s coming to an end.  Davey D is...

Jeffrey Katzenberg Starting Wednesday, this blogger’s taking a special trip to something called The 3D Entertainment Summit, in Universal City, California. With the proliferation of 3D in our entertainment lives, this event, only in its third year, has become the must-attend function for anyone involved in or covering the tech aspect of culture. As mentioned in a previous post, DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg will be the keynote speaker, and film producer and Director M. Night Shyamalan will be the featured speaker. But...

Every year around this time many of us within Hip Hop take some time out and reflect on the life and times of Tupac Amaru Shakur as commemorate the anniversary of his tragic death Sept 13 1996. With each passing year its interesting to note that as a younger generation grows older, icons like 2Pac don’t seem to mean as much. For example, I’m not sure I heard anyone shout Tupac out during the MTV VMAs (Video Music Awards). Not sure if people took time to acknowledge him during the VMAs red carpet interviews or if anyone bothered...

Add caption If you’re wondering how Virginia Tech could come so close to beating Boise State, 33 to 30 ten days ago, but stunningly lose at home, 21 to 16 against James Madison, you simply must read the blog post by Mike Kuchar, The Defensive Coordinator at North Brunswick Township High School in New Jersey, as prepared for and presented at Chris Brown’s excellent Smart Football Blog. To give the Clift Notes version of what Coach Kuchar wrote before the link to it, Virginia Tech broke down Boise State Offense...

Did Chelsea Handler kill it, or did she suck? That provocative range of choice best shows how viewers feel about her performance as host of The Video Music Awards, or The VMAs, and what they tweeted on Twitter. But for this blogger, Chelsea killed it because she was, well, Chelsea. She did what she was expected to do: be sassy, valley-girlish, and black-male / ethnic focused in her humor. The bottom line is Chelsea Handler made money from of coming off like the chick who has fantasies of sex with black men every second of every day,...

2010 MTV Video Music Awards – More VMA Video Eminem and Rianna memorably sing “Not Afraid/Love the Way You Lie (Live) at the Video Music Awards. It’s a song about an abusive relationship. Since I’ve known one too many women who seemed addicted to such relationships (not with me because I’m good at running away from them), it’s a hard song for me to listen to because it, to a degree, seems to romanticize such pairings. While their song is moving, the only annoying aspect of the entire video is...

The Amazing Lady Gaga (Stefani Germanotta), for whom it could be said dominated 2010 pop-culture including an amazing visit with KISS, dominated the Video Music Awards, with 8 VMA award wins as of this writing, including VMA Best Female Video Of The Year. Lady Gaga came out in her signature high heels with a flowing layered dress, and did not disappoint. Here she is accepting the VMA for Bad Romance (video by willtado on YouTube): Lady Gaga’s combination of punk, soul, politic, and provocation are a winner for a cynical 21st...

Sway is currently on the television screen interviewing Lady Gaga – who was nominated 13 times. She has already won the first two awards of the nice for Best Dance (Bad Romance) & Best Collaboration (Beyonce). There are many predictions that Lady Gaga might just win every award she is nominated for. Gaga is basically taking over the world, and her fans “Little Monsters” are definitely loyal and persistent. Those fans are unstoppable, and they must have all voted. It may be a bit predictable if Gaga wins every award,...

Vick  Philadelphia Eagles Michael Vick came in for Kevin Kolb, who left the game against The Green Bay Packers with a concussion, and is leading the Eagles from down 20 to 3 to now behind 27 to 20. As of this writing, it’s 5:17 left and Twitter’s going nuts. Michael Vick is a Top Twitter Trend, right behind, CALA BOCA COLORIDAS, Everybody Hates Restart, and Kevin Kolb, who he replaced. Here are some of the tweets: _ItsJustTY – RT @BowWow Mike Vick is back!!!! Wow he look like the old vickhalf a minute...

Michael Vick  The Philadelphia Eagles vs. Green Bay Packers game was to feature Donovan McNabb-replacement Quarterback Kevin Kolb against The Green Bay Packers Aaron Rodgers. But Kolb was knocked out of the game; Michael Vick, who has experience, more experience, in the same offense, came in and directed the Eagles to their first touchdown. The Packers were up 20 to 3, now, it’s 20 to 10. So far, Vick is 5 of 7 for 39 yards and has an amazing 31 yard run to set up the touchdown. But the Packers came back, scoring...

Bieber with Handler  Chelsea Handler, feeling her blonde 35-year old oats before the Video Music Awards tonight, takes a photo, the one you see, with 17-year old Justin Bieber, then tells Kim Kardashian via Twitter to “Watch her Armenian back.” Chelsea’s known for racial and ethnic-based humor, but apparently it didn’t go over well. Kim Kardashian failed to respond on Twitter. According to MTV, Handler and Kardashian have a feud going, that’s referred to as a “catfight.” Chelsea...

Pete Carroll Seattle Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll is having fun. That much is evident as he enjoys the Seattle Seahawks first touchdown in their game against the San Francisco 49ers. It marks Carroll’s first score in his new NFL career: a one-yard run by Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, after a nice 17 yard catch by Wide Receiver Mike Williams, who looks like a new man in Seattle after four years of floundering. Pete Carroll A Fan On The Field But Coach Carroll’s the one who looks like a new man. Free of the...

Stafford  Matthew Stafford’s injury and the Detroit Lions’ loss to the Chicago Bears 14 to 19, this blogger’s prediction of the Detroit Lions being in the NFC Championship Game has taken a massive blow. Stafford is the Lions second year quarterback, and along with their other new young players, represents the best hope for the team to achieve any playoff-related success. That can’t happen if he can’t play; Matthew Stafford was sacked by Chicago Bears defensive end Julius Peppers, forcing him...

Matthew Stafford is the Detroit Lions quarterback; today he suffered a crushing sack from Chicago Bears defensive end Julius Peppers late in the second quarter. Stafford’s right shoulder injury forced him out of the game. Sport’s Illustrated Last season Stafford has a left shoulder injury which caused him to miss four gamess. This season has just started, and Stafford was standing on the sideline with his arm in a sling while he watched Shaun Hill replace him in the third quarter. Before Stafford was injured he led...

The 99ers will be calling Senator George Voinovich (R) Ohio in droves when Congress reconvenes next week. It is not often these days that we see a Republican do the right thing for America, but Senator George Voinovich is no stranger to bucking his party. He announced last week that he will vote to start debate on the Small Business bill as well as the $50 billion infrastructure stimulus spending bill. It appears that he will want to add an amendment pulling the 1099 reporting requirement that was included in the Affordable Care Act as...

Oakland Raiders Offensive Coordinator Hue Jackson is one of this blogger’s favorite coaches. But this outing, his first game with the Raiders and against the Tennessee Titans is disappointing. On a 4th Down and 10 play, Jackson called a three-to-one formation where there are three receivers on one side of the play and one on the other. For seemingly the hundredth time, Jackson called a play that had Raiders Quarterback Jason Campbell throw to the strongside receiver. Meanwhile, the loan receiver on the other side who get single...

One reason I believed the Indianapolis Colts should go with a safety like Taylor Mays in the 2010 NFL Draft is they’ve been riding the much-injured horse that is Safery Bob Sanders for too long. Now, again, Bob Sanders is hurt. He injured his elbow in today, Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans. Sanders is not expected to return and it’s not reported for how long he will be out. Meanwhile, the Colts, down 10 to 20 for the Texans, are driving an in Houston territory with 12:32 in the 4th Quarter. If the Colts...

At first, the Tennessee Titans score of 30 to the Oakland Raiders 6 would seem to be almost insurmountable. Especially listening to the ex-San Diego Charger Dan Fouts. It’s not. First, offensively, the Raiders and Titans are almost similar looking at the stats at the half: 8 first downs to 11 for the Titans. But the Titans have had big plays, leading to 108 yards for Oakland to to 261 yards for Tennessee. The Raiders problems offensively, aside from the center snap errors, are one of the types of plays called by Offensive Coordinator...

Keenan Allen leaves ‘em grabbing for air.  Cal Football Freshman Wide Receiver Keenan Allen’s second game in College Football was as impressive as his first one, but in a way you’d not have expected. Rather than being the big play receiver against Colorado, where Cal won 52 to 7 Saturday, Allen was the one moving the chains. He had 6 receptions for 66 yards and an 11 yard average. In fact, the one big play, a lovely 62 yard bomb, came from QB Kevin Riley to Junior Wide Receiver Marvin Jones. But Keenan...

It’s that time of the year again – the MTV Video Music Awards will be airing tonight at 9PM ET and hosted by Chelsea Handler. Last year at the VMAs the most memorable moment was when Kanye West snatched the mic from Taylor Swift as she had won Best Female Video. He announced that Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time, and then later Beyonce let Taylor come back on stage and give a proper thank you. Kanye is performing this year at the VMAs, and he has also said that he wrote Taylor Swift a song. Maybe he will be...

While Cal was manhandling a Pac-10 pretender in Colorado, Oregon was taking it to Tennessee, and USC was staying just ahead of Virginia, Stanford, in the only conference battle, totally destroyed UCLA 35 to 0. The game has fans taking to Twitter to express their displeasure with UCLA Head Coach Rick Neuheisel, who’s in his third year at the helm.  That  awful beating has him in trouble. Butt Kicking There was nothing fancy about the win: Stanford used conventional formations, and sound schemes. But they executed with...

As we remember 9-11.. Ask yourself what are u doing to prevent a tragedy like this from happening again? Have we been taking the path of love and understanding or hate and revenge? In the days after 9-11, I recall how folks came together and tried to comfort one another…I remember for the first time in a long time folks would look and try to find the humanity in each other. I remember those images of folks reaching out and trying to find deeper meaning in the tragedy that occurred. No one knew what they could really do so folks just...

Cindy Paoletti of Syracuse, N.Y appeared on the Ed Schultz show on MSNBC yesterday. Paoletti, 58, understands those costs of long term unemployment. Laid off from her job as a bookkeeper at J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.’s operations center in December 2007, she used a severance package to pay bills, and then began collecting $330 a week in unemployment benefits. She exhausted her 99 weeks of benefits in March 2010, and still can’t find a job. Employers “just don’t want to hire anybody in our age group,” she...

As i type this blog mobile entry, I am standing in the cool provided by an open concession area at Cal Memorial Stadium.   For the Bay Area it is a hot day.  About 80 degrees.  But even hotter is Cal.   The stars mentioned in the first blog post have driven.this obvious win.  QB Kevin Riley was 7 of 13 for 81 yards.  WR Keenan Allen had 3 catches for 49 yards. And Shane Vereen had 45 yards rushing.  OK. Not big numbers but with Cal's Defense they aren't needed.    ...

In a game that was to be a test for the Cal Golden Bears, Cal is clobbering Colorado now 21 to 0.  The stars are the Cal Defense, Running Back Shane Vereen, and Freshman Wide Receiver Keenan Allen. The other story is the hot weather. It must be 80 degrees as I live blog this account Stay tuned.  ...

Today marks the 9th year since the tragic events of September 11th 2001, when The Twin Towers Of The World Trade Center in New York City were destroyed by two hijacked Boeing 767 planes in an elaborate crime plot, the Pentagon was damaged by another plane, and the third plane, reportedly headed for The White House, crashed in Shanksville, Pa after a passenger revolt. Over 3,000 people were killed, countless families impacted, and the sprit of America damaged, perhaps irreparably.  And so because the New Freedom Tower’s design...

Cal hosts Colorado today, and this blogger’s excited to see what Freshman Wide Receiver Keenan Allen does against a real good opponent in Colorado in two hours, plus. Again, if Cal Offensive Coordinator Andy Ludwig can install a plan that gets Allen on-one against a defender consistently, he will be the Heisman front-runner. Too much pressure on him? Hey, brother. It’s COLLEGE FOOTBALL! It’s the big leagues. Want less pressure? Go play intramurals, brother. ...

Towers of the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan Seen From West Street, 05/1973, originally uploaded by The U.S. National Archives. September 11th 2001 was marked by the murder of not just the 3,000 people that were in the twin towers of The World Trade Center, but the towers themselves. The World Trade Center symbolized American ambition, wealth, power, and purpose. Moreover, since it was developed by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, its completion in 1973 showed what American government could do. A constant symbol...

@clairew @gregpass & @jillyface, originally uploaded by @Twitter. In the Kanye West at Twitter blog posts it was mentioned that Twitter employees also know how to get their drink on at work. Here’s an example: the Social Bar event September 4th. Since that was a Friday, it’s fair to assume that the Social Bar’s a Friday thing at Twitter. A great way to relax and unwind. Lots of drink glasses, eh? ...

@kanyewest, originally uploaded by @Twitter. In the last post, we saw Twitter Founder Biz Stone announcing that Kanye West was joining Twitter on July 28, 2010. The subsequent Flicrk photos apparently show Kanye West singing there as well, and perhaps it’s his new single. Whatever the case, clearly Kanye was having a good time. But this blogger can’t help but wonder if he was the only black man in the room. Hope not, but looking through the photos, it seems that way. Someone Indian, but not someone black. When this...
