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?

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

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-Lawso

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
