Why does it say paper jam when there is no paper jam?!?

So, my husband thinks that in keeping with the "friend" aspect of this blog, I should also post about random stuff I think of, not just about race and inequality. On the one hand, I can see where he's coming from. I have a very multi-faceted personality, and think about a lot of other things. On the other hand I'm skeptical, because it seems the best blogs are the ones where the posts revolve around one certain theme. But I'd like to think of myself as a flexible and open person, so I'll try it out and see how it feels.

Do you think that the people who work at T.G.I.Fridays wear less flair now as a direct result of the movie Office Space ? I wonder.

How was that for you? If you have any thoughts on the matter, leave me a comment.

ETA: I just couldn't help myself (:

Ask yourself these questions: How come Samir wasn't the main character in this movie? Have you ever seen a movie like this where a person of color was the main character, and the white characters are the supporting roles (besides Harold and Kumar go to White Castle )? Do you think this movie would have been as popular/made as much money if the actor that played Samir was cast in the role of Peter? Why or why not?

  1. Great post! And to answer your question: no, the movie would not have been so popular if the Indian guy, Samir, had the lead role.(Maybe in India) Although I have seen movies with black lead roles and a white cast sorrunding them, but those roles are usually reserved for black mega stars.

    BTW, I loved that movie. That scene in your pic with the hip hop track playing in the background was priceless.

    You have a good site going here, keep up the good work.
