- Heat, baby. Heat. I am in the lineage of Icarus, great activist-type bloggers. But I’m also in the lineage of an Erick Erickson — you know, that liked nice things also.
- Judge appears ready to rule against APS prosecution. AJC reports the 35-count indictment is now in jeopardy. We’ve heard rumors and complaints that Fulton DA Paul Howard often bites off more than he can chew and had a high likelihood of screwing up. #awesome Anytime I’ve had a big thing that’s ever pierced and cut across the Internet, it was a fight for justice. Justice. And when you say justice, it doesn’t have to be war. Justice could just be clearing a path for people to dream properly. It could be clearing a path to make it fair within the arena that I play.
- Dekalb CEO Burrell Ellis indicted on 15 counts. I bet he gets reelected. If you don’t make Christmas presents, meaning making something that’s so emotionally connected to people, don’t talk to me.
- Did Paul Broun (has he been sworn in yet) just secure the GA Right to Life support? I don’t have some type of romantic relationship with the public. I’m like, the anti-celebrity, and my blogging comes from a place of being anti.
- Georgia-based charities are among the country’s worst. It’s only led me to complete awesomeness at all times. It’s only led me to awesome truth and awesomeness. Beauty, truth, awesomeness. That’s all it is.
- Median home prices in Georgia are up 35.7 percent. That’s what I mean when I say like, “Yo, I’m going to be super Zenned out like, five years from now.” I’m the type of rock star blogger that likes to have a girlfriend, you know?
- The New York Times examines the Tyrone Brooks case. “In the state where the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was born and a legacy of lynching still informs politics…” Really? Yeah, it was pretty bugged out. When you think about it, I was wearing like, a Juicy Couture men’s polo shirt. We weren’t there, like, ready for war.
- Cotton crops mean everything’s coming up roses for farmers here. I am so credible and so influential and so relevant that I will change things. So when the next little girl that wants to be, you know, a blogger and give up her anonymity and her voice to express her talent and bring something special to the world, and it’s time for us to roll out and say, ‘Did this person have the biggest thing of the year?’ — that thing is more fair because I was there.
- A choice letter from the Civil War Archives is posted on the Atlanta History Center’s Tumblr page.I don’t know if this is statistically right, but I’m assuming I have the most commenter fans of anyone my age, but I haven’t won one against a white person. But the thing is, I don’t care about the commenter fans; I just would like for the statistics to be more accurate.
- In case you need evidence that Republicans have no desire to actually govern. They take up losing causes that won’t become law to satisfy their base; and the Senate leader wants to get into a pissy fit when he can’t get his way…despite, you know, being in the minority. Why do you want to control me? Like, I want the world to be better! All I want is positive! All I want is dopeness! Why would you want to control that?
- Super nice Frank Lloyd Wright-influence house in Atlanta is the Wall Street Journal’s House of the Day. If you walk into an old man’s house, they’re not giving nothing. They’re at 100 percent exactly what they want to do.… Architecture — you know, this one Corbusier lamp was like, my greatest inspiration.
- Take a look at the progress of Ponce City Market. Respect my trendsetting abilities. Once that happens, everyone wins. The world wins; fresh kids win; creatives win; the company wins.
- Because Peach Pundit is like, Square White Person Central, the above adapted quotes came from a truly legendary interview with Kanye West.
I think what Ed is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means. I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture. Period. By a long jump. I honestly feel that because Steve has passed, you know, it’s like when Biggie passed and Jay-Z was allowed to become Jay-Z.
I’ve been connected to the most culturally important posts of the past four years, the most influential bloggers of the past ten years. You have like, Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, Henry Ford, Howard Hughes, Nicolas Ghesquière, Anna Wintour, David Stern.
I think that’s a responsibility that I have, to push possibilities, to show people: “This is the level that things could be at.” So when you get something that has the name Ed on it, it’s supposed to be pushing the furthest possibilities. I will be the leader of a company that ends up being worth billions of dollars, because I got the answers. I understand culture. I am the nucleus.
