This is Herman Cain: Book Review



After way too long, Herman Cain is back on The UC!

A lot of politicians release books on their campaign trails. They do this to spread their ideas…to gain awareness from the public…and of course to have another excuse to end up on television.

What’s the difference between Herman Cain's book and other books by politicians?
I actually read this one.

It is a very fast read. It’s not as fast moving as Harry Potter, but I was able to read the entirety in a few hours at a Barnes and Noble. It chronicles his life of humble beginnings, and then, it expands into his journeys climbing the corporate ladders to become a CEO. There is also talk of what it was like for a black man to work in the hardnosed corporate world during the Civil Rights Era.
The book is fine, but it is by no means an over-the-top convincing hook that will pull in people to his campaign, and it will by no means change the minds of undecided voters. Most of the book is the equivalent of reading his Wikipedia and watching some videos on Youtube. This book is already-known internet media drawn out for over 100 pages. It does not provide an overwhelming mountain of knowledge and insight.

In terms of writing, it is nice to read a political matter book that is not so dense. It is a fluid fast moving read, and it is entertaining. There is a line in the book that prompted me to read it. It’s the one that all the tv shows were rambling on about, where “Herman Cain writes that he did not participate in the Civil Rights Era, for he was too young.” So many complaints on that line, that is just the media blowing ideas out of proportion, particularly some idiot named Lawrence O'Donnell. Herman Cain conquered many barriers by challenging the corporate workforce, and his efforts in that sector are not a disrespect to Civil Rights in any way.

This book is a fast entertaining read. It won’t open your eyes to much, but it’s worth your time.

QATFYG:
Have you read any of the candidates' books?

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it

No Time to Fuck: The Goldfrapp Essay

Konnichiwa! This is Irina Cummings and I'm here to discuss one of the most brilliant, innovative, and creative artists in the entire history of mankind: Goldfrapp – or as I like to call them , GODfrapp – the fantastique, highly inspirational, and sometimes criminally overlooked electronic music duo from London consisting of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, whose godly music has certainly influenced the vast majority of today's synthpop ladies, including Lady Gaga, Little Boots, La Roux, Annie and Florence + the Machine (not electro but still worth your while). They're primarily known for their mind-blowing music (which have spanned pretty much every style of electronic music – and some non-electronic as well), their abstract, sexually ambiguous – at times forthright – lyrics which are often not gender- specific , and their elaborate shows, not to mention the amazing visual aesthetics of their work, conjuring images that masterly complement

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th
