92y:

If you missed Tracy Morgan and Hannibal Buress last night at 92Y, Grantland has highlights:

On the (very important) question of white people using the N-word at karaoke.
Buress: “You can’t pick a song that’s [N-word] heavy. Like, Kanye’s ‘All of the Lights’ is OK. But YG’s ‘My N—a’ you should avoid.”
Morgan: “When you drinking at the karaoke spot, know how many [N-Words] are in the song.”
On the Brooklyn Nets
Morgan: “If you’re a Nets, Mets, or Jets fan, you probably have low self-esteem.”
On Buress writing for 30 Rock
Morgan: “It was just you and a sea of white dudes.”
Buress: “We had an Indian dude.”
On the 92nd Street Y
Morgan: “I didn’t even know this shit was here! Is this the Upper East Side or what? This is where the good cocaine is.”
On side businesses
Buress: “I want to open a Jamba Juice.”
On performing for white audiences
Morgan: “That’s why I wear a watch. Because if white people see me wearing a watch they feel like they can trust me.”

Read more.

The good cocaine is at the McDonald’s below the J/M/Z train at Marcy Ave.

"Good cocaine" in NYC is never found in Brooklyn, or in NYC for that matter.

Glad Gawker is sticking with the same Brooklyn jokes from five years ago. Smart  to be consistent, since the demographic is probably changing. That being said, I never understood the animus associated with reading the New Yorker in public.  Sometimes people just want to read the New Yorker on the train, and it’s not a statement about anything other than convenience. Then again, the average Gawker junkie probably looks down their nose at ppl reading Gladwell or Gary Shteyngart on the L train because Balk’s cock wrote a blog post about it once.
Richard Tarnas is prolly OK, though, since I’m guessing most Gawker readers haven’t heard of him — or if they have, they don’t care. Oh hey, look, I can do the cultural cleaving too!
Also: “says he’s a ‘writer,’ is actually a ‘blogger.’” </fixed>

What is going on in Buffalo? First Ralph kicks it (he was 95, but it seemed like he&#8217;d lived forever), now Jim has got cancer?
Oh yeah, this is a football blog now, even though I don&#8217;t really watch football (it makes my head hurt*).

RIP, you old coot.
If the Bills get moved, I&#8217;m done watching football forever.

GRANTLAND: At one point there was talk of you working with Kanye?
 

MADLIB: I don’t know what happened. Maybe he didn’t wanna pay my fee, or maybe he didn’t wanna go in that direction. Probably the money thing, he wanted to put his name on my— I actually don’t wanna talk about that. A lot of people record over my music and it don’t come out.
