Random thoughts from a random king

I know my sister won’t be too happy about this. I had 3 cups of coffee. So when I try to go to sleep…WHOO it’s going to be a TIME! Let’s see what’s there to talk about. Twitter is blowing up. I’m up to 16 followers. 16 people that care what I’m doing. I’m just…I’m just so touched. If you happen to have joined the new crack known as Twitter, follow me at twitter.com/bigdusty864. Big Dusty because as most of you know is my nick name and 864 because that’s my area code. Fantabulous ain’t it?

As some of you know I’m a fan of the longest running circus show known as professional wrestling or sports entertainment if you will, and to say that the product is watered down has to be the understatement of the decade. Let’s look at the positives first. WrestleMania is coming up, which is arguably the biggest wrestling/sports entertainment show of the year. I personally think 3 of the matches have potential to be classics: Shawn Michaels vs. Undertaker, Jeff Hardy vs. Matt Hardy, and HHH vs. Randy Orton. A lot of people would add in the Money in the Bank Ladder match, and I would too if it wasn’t for the fact that Mark Henry is in the match. I mean seriously, how in the world fat man with 2 bad knees going to climb a ladder? And if he can climb the ladder, how is the ladder going to hold him? I’m just saying. The other matches promoted on the show, the 25 diva battle royal to crown a “Ms. WrestleMania.” TIME FILLER!! Ladies and Gentleman during this match take a quick nap because that’s all it’s good for. Before I get comments about being a sexist, let me say this. Raw and ECW have good Diva talent. SmackDown, ehh, not so much. The only positive about the divas on SmackDown is that they’ve gained Gail Kim. My only thing about that is, who did Gail Kim tick off? Another match at WrestleMania is Chris Jericho vs. Ricky “The Dragon”, Jimmy Snuka, and Roddy Piper. Ok yes it’s cool to see the legends, but do you really expect to see a quality match? I thought so. The other title match is the triple threat match with John Cena, Edge, and Big Show. The match itself, I don’t think will be the worst match in history, but I have to say that the build up to this match has been crapacles. Seriously, why is Vickie “I look like a sick dead dog” Guerrero still around? I almost forgot about the tag-team lumberjack match to unify the tag-team titles. The match has potential, but one has to ask if the Miz is ready for the big stage? I for one don’t even think he’s ready to work for TNA. That’s just me.

Enough about that. So we got a fence for the dog now. Don’t judge me for the transition, just roll with it. It’s taking Ginger a while to get use to it. She still used to somebody being out there with her amongst other things, which I won’t get into. Now if any of y’all seen my dog, Ginger, you’ll know that saying she’s little is another understatement. She’s not Chihuahua little, but she’s more like a German Sheppard that won’t grow. So with a dog that short, intimidating is not a word you’d use to describe her. Which takes me back to a time where this guy came knocked on the front door. Now it’s not nice to judge a book by it’s cover, but you could tell this dude was a Lord of the Rings die hard. Anyway he knocked, and Ginger barked like most dogs would do in that situation. I open the door, Ginger got out. Remember, Ginger is short thang. The guy at the door, tried to protect himself with a clipboard like Ginger was a pit. He said he was scared of dogs. Let me explain something to you. If you’re scared of a thing you can easily pick up and drop kick over a condo, you might as well stay in the house and become a loner. That’s pathetic.

I know this is probably old news, but apparently Snoop Dogg has become a Muslim. I really don’t understand the connection between Islam and Hip-Hop. Now, back in the day, black people join up with Islam for the brotherhood because times were different then. I asked my dad about this and he said that it’s a black thing. I don’t know if that’s accurate because Eminem isn’t black, I don’t think. Maybe I’m color blind. Either way, again, supposedly Snoop is now a Muslim. Snoop with a bow tie. Snoop is going to look like a broom going to prom. Bless his heart. I notice a lot of hip hoppers, when they’re in “trouble” go to Farrakhan for help. Maybe it’s the fact that we as Christians spend our time judging, and don’t spend it helping. Less face it, some Christians are not approachable people. I get that vibe around church people all the time, and it’s a shame. It really is. So in essence if Islam is more open to help, how can I blame Hip-Hop superstars for going to Farrakhan for counseling and help? After thinking about it, I know why some Christians aren’t approachable. The Bible says to let your light so shine, that men might see your good works. Glory the Father which in heaven. The light represents God. Some of us Christians are not letting God shine like he should. The light is dull in other words. Time is too short for us to be letting the light dull. We got to let that light shine. Especially in these last and evil days. I’m saying that because I know my light has been dull. So we all must do better.

Quick thoughts. The “Brady Rule” is living proof that the only way you’re going to see real American football is in your backyard. Having 3 cups of coffee late at night was not smart, I don’t know why I let y’all talk me into it. Y’all should definitely check out Tyler Perry’s “The Marriage Counselor,” which is now on DVD. It’s really really good.

Well that’s all I’m good for. I’m going to try and go to sleep. Y’all continue to prayer for me as I’ll prayer for yous. Share your thoughts to what I talked about. Y’all be good now, ya hear?

Deep thoughts then my usual randomness

So apparently Rhianna and Chris Brown are back together. Rhianna is a pretty girl, but obviously something ain't functioning up there in the head. Oprah said something that I actually agree with. She said, "If he hit you once, he's going to do it again." With that being said, I know it's possible for Chris Brown to get save, but many of the true saints know that just because you said yes to Jesus does not mean your issues are going to stop. I understand that you got to forgive, but don't go back to the problem. That's where a lot of us mess up when we claim we've gotten rid of the habit or issue without killing the source of the thing to begin with. If you don't drop or get rid of the source, then you can expect the thing to come back stronger. It's like a plant. The way to kill a plant is not by chopping off the top. You got to get to the root of that plant to kill it. I wish the best for Rhianna and hopefully she'll smarten up.

I talked about this in the last podcast I did, which can be found at here. Trying to stop abortion is not the problem. You got to get to the source. What's the source? The source is having sex before marriage. Abortion is nothing but a cover up so you don't have suffer the consequence of your actions or sins. I've said this before, and yes I stole it from Tyler Perry. If you can lay there and do it, stand up and take the consequence. None of this choice crap. You had the choice, in some cases, to do the do. Now an argument I hear is from rape victims. I understand why they would want the abortion, but let me say this. Don't punish the baby for the sin. Don't punish the baby for the rape. Think about this, what if Martin Luther King was aborted? What if Obama was aborted, although some of you wish that was? What if Abraham Lincoln was aborted? What I'm saying is, you don't know what the baby could become. Think if your all time favorite comedians was aborted, where would the entertainment world be today? Would it be better or worse? Nobody knows. Just trying to make y'all think that's all. And let me say this, condoms is yet another excuse to try and cover up. Again, if you laid there and did it, and you had a choice to do it, and you got pregant, be woman or man enough take care of the baby. For parents, please don't push for abortion if your child makes a mistake. The mistake is in the sex, not the baby.

I'm up to 7 actually followers on Twitter! I'm moving up. Hey, maybe by next week, I'll be up to 10 or more. Who knows. By the way, my twitter is twitter.com/bigdusty864.

So what have I been up to? Well, now I got to go to the bathroom, so I'm going to end this soon. Still no job. No license, and it is because lack of trying. Sue me. I'm going to Moes after church Sunday. BTW, I officially can't stand the stuff crust pizza from Pizza Hut. I just think the crust is disgusting.

Ok, well I'm going to watch the rest of SNL, Saturday Night Live, and then go to my room for the night.

Follow me everything is alright...

That's right my people, I'm on Twitter. I have only 4 followers as this is being typed, so if you're on Twitter, follow me at http://www.twitter.com/bigdusty864. If you're not on twitter, that's your choice. Well that's all. Nah, I'm just kidding...

I also signed on to this site iseecolor.com. I have no idea what's on there or what's the site is about. All I know is that it's supposed to help me and a good friend of mine expose some underground bands. So keep that situation in your prayers.

So like I said before, I'm on twitter. (Quick commercial break, check out this video. It's about twitter...in a way). And I'm following the world renowned rapper and the conceited Sean "Diddy" Combs. He's living proof that any Christian parents that may be reading this, you must be careful of who you let your kids listen to. I've seen and read Diddy bring up God like he's saved, then in the same breath cuss like he's in a Kevin Smith movie. Hypocritical? I think so. The Bible talks about not cussing. One verse that's become one of my favorites is Ephesians 4:29. You can look it up and read it for yourselves but in a nut shell it says don't cuss. Don't say any filthy thing. That only thing that should come out your mouth should "minster grace to the hearers." Now that's the Bible. How you going to claim to be a God follower, and continue to cuss. I don't know.

Now let me say this. In Proverbs 26:11, it compares a dog returning to his vomit to a fool returning to his sin. All I'm going to say about that is that time is winding up. Jesus is on his way back. Now I not going to be stupid and try to predict when because Jesus is going to come when we least expect it. He could come tonight. He could come 80 years from now. The point is. We got to be ready and take a life long time out from being foolish.

Is Dick Vitale's voice annoying to anybody else? Or is it just me?

Oh and yes the title is from a song by Uncle Cracker. I like that song. Don't judge me.

I've been suffering from a cough for weeks now. I can't seem to get rid of it. It's more annoying than watching new Nickelodeon shows trying to be the next Kenan and Kel. Forget it Nick, it won't happen!

Ever been at a place so long that when you go to the restaurants, they just about know you by first name? Yeah, that's a clue that you need to move. My dad says, "No son, that's just as American as apple pie!" pssh....Let me explain something ok. I'll never get annoyed with apple pie. People asking where I've been when I walk in a restaurant after I haven't been there in weeks...yes that will get annoying.

Well that's about all I got for this blog. Be on a look out for a new podcast. Imma try to get one done this coming week. Stay saved.
