Imagine a world where 2Pac was a Jedi. People around the Cantina, pour a little liquor out.
This from the NY Daily News:
The Force may have been stronger in Tupac Shakur than previously known.
Death Row Records’ former Chief Engineer Rick Clifford said his former collaborator was set to audition for a role in 1999′s “Star Wars: Episode I” before his death.
The New York-born Shakur was supposed to read for the part of a Jedi that later went to Samuel L. Jackson, Clifford claimed, but was gunned down in Las Vegas on Sept. 13, 1996. Shakur was just 25 at the time of his death.
“It’s sad because ‘Pac found out that I worked for Brian Austin Green. who was on ’90210,’ then he found out I was in some movies. So we always talked about his film career and stuff,” Clifford said in the interview with 2Pac-Forum.com posted late last week.
That makes all of this a bit better…

Relationship Expert George Moufarrej is the author of “Sexual Euphoria: A Complete Guide For Men and Women“, and he believes some things are off-limits for a first date. In fact he has a list of things you shouldn’t bring up.
I disagree…so I invited him on to discuss it. I did it for you.

Dear Departed Friend,
As fast as time moves, we selfishly always think we’ll have more. But the truth is that everything is finite, and the saddest among us are left with words unsaid.
My world stopped this morning when I heard you were gone. Others were there and I’m glad you had a hand to hold in the end, but I’m beside myself that I never got to give the goodbye that you deserve.
You were so kind to me. Unassuming and warm, filled with quirks and flaws that only made me love you more. You’ve been a part of my life for so long and there are things I will never forget.
Not everyone loved the way you would leave your dirty magazines around the bathroom, but I found it honest and endearing.
I wish you would have let me play your piano, but I understand why you didn’t. You more than made up for it with your hospitality, always leaving candy and toys out when we came over.
You were always there to lend an ear for all occasions. We would talk about love and life, comfortably nestled on your worn couch. New friends would be amazed by your bumper cars, but I always felt I knew you better than that.
I’ve introduced you to every important woman in my life since I was eighteen, because I knew how charming you were. To love me would be to love you. I even introduced you to the less important ones, until we decided those girls were better taken somewhere else.
All our late nights race through my mind today. The ones where we stacked PBRs along the wall, jumping frogs and spinning tops. I even remember the times when you used to invite me over for lunch. You knew Perogies were the way to my heart.
We would blast The Menzingers and The Animals. Sink into a good INXS tune and know this was only for us. I always admired your taste in music, and was thankful you shared.
In the end I guess I could have seen this coming. You became less available, only willing to see me on Fridays and Saturdays. You changed your name. You invited over some sketchy college kids, flat brims and bad attitudes. But I knew none of it wasn’t your choice. You were just trying to survive in a changing world.
With all the times you’ve been there for me, I wish I could have been there for you. Life is short and time is finite, but our memories will live forever.
Goodnight Sugar Moms.
This is great work out of Anthony Robinson, and extremely informative. I myself rarely have this problem, you know, because I listened to Otis Redding and watched “Sanford And Son” growing up…but I’ve seen this awkward exchange more times than I can count. Mostly by kids with Marc Ecko shirts and Stephon Marbury shoes. Because if Ghostface wasn’t rockin’ Wallabees, he surely would buy 15 dollar Starburys.
The folks at JoeyRitter.com asked me to be a part of their Skype podcast. So if you ever wondered how “Metro And Gordon Do The Internet” came to be or who Mark Paul Gosselaar kinda looks like, then this is the video for you.
