Other Black People My Students Can't Do For Their Black History Month Project

Yesterday, I told a student of mine that Chris Brown was definitely unacceptable to do for their Black History Month Project. That's a given. But here are a few other figures who I've thought about banning and keeping. Comment below if you agree.

Rest in peace, but no.

And yes.

I hope that clears some things up.

Having a Beard is a Prison

Growing a beard is manly...for the first month. Then, it starts to become a prison in all the following months. Everything is hampered by it: Kissing your girl, eating breakfast (Call me Crumbface), washing your face. Everything!

"So why don't you just cut your beard off then?" asks the man in the front row.

Because of Bearduary. If you don't know what it is, click on the link. You'll find plenty of hairy-faced men.

Now, I'm not blaming them. They're doing a fine community service by encouraging men to cover their faces with man hair in the coldest months of the year. I applaud them. But because I see things through to the end, I'm keeping my beard and it's like a prison. I can't wait until March 1st. That's when the fur's coming off.

I don't like reading online

I don't like reading online. It hurts my eyes and my feelings. I like reading books. I also like pictures of morbidly obese people. Like this one.

Would you believe I actually went to Staples and had this picture blown up into a poster that's now on my wall? I look at it while I write. It inspires me. What inspires you?

Not too big a fan of Poker myself (I'm much more of a Go Fish kind of guy), but if you dig the sport, check out Flatcall.com. They have some pretty cool apparel.

Four Great Bands Where Multiple Members Sing Lead Vocals

Props to the bands where there are multiple singers. It's one thing to have multiple creative minds in a group, and another to have groups where almost everybody has the balls to sing. Here's a list of the only bands I can think of that have accomplished this feat. Can you think of any others?

4. Weezer

Was the Red album any good? Well, no, not really, but on it, all four members each had a song of their own to sing. And even better, when they went on tour for the album, they all played different instruments every night. That's pretty badass.

3. Mastodon

Mastodon is an interesting band in that multiple members sing lead within the same song. What I mean is, whole sections of a song will have up to three members of the band singing lead. Too bad lead guitarist, Bill Kelliher, keeps quiet. :(

2. Kiss

Those who only know Kiss from their biggest single, "Rock and Roll All Nite" might think that Gene Simmons is the lead singer of the group, when the truth is, he only sung lead on a very small number of Kiss songs. But the truth is, of the original lineup of Ace, Paul, Gene, and Peter Criss, all of them got a chance to sing lead. Bitchin'.

1. The Beatles

And of course, the biggest band in the world had all four members singing. What makes The Beatles the most amazing group of all on this list is that each member had at least (at LEAST) one song that's considered a Beatles classic to their own. Even Ringo, with "Yellow Submarine" and "Octopus's Garden" had his share of hits. Unbelievable.
