Black & White is the New Orange

url

Now that orange has become the new black, black-and-white stripes have become the new orange — after a Michigan sheriff gave his inmates a wardrobe change to keep them from looking “cool.”

The once all-orange jumpsuits at Saginaw County Jail in Michigan took on a different meaning amid hype surrounding the Netflix series “Orange is the New Black,” Saginaw County Sheriff William Federspiel said.

So, Saginaw County went back to basics — the horizontal stripes reminiscent of 19th-century prison garb. Federspiel told Reuters the decision was spurred by a juror who recently wore all orange during a trial.

“When the lines get blurred between the culture outside the jail and the culture within the jail, I have to do something to redefine those boundaries because they’ve been blurred far too often in public culture,” he told MLive.com, referring to clothing that depicts prison culture, including some that are stamped with “Property of the Saginaw County Jail.” “I’ve seen that,” he added. “It’s like ‘What are you doing? Really?’”

Federspiel said he doesn’t expect the uniform change to be complete until the end of the year, though some inmates are already voicing opposition.

“For me, it was an easy decision,” he told Reuters. “It was a cost savings and it breaks away from that cultural coolness. It’s not cool to be an inmate of the Saginaw County Jail.”

I dunno if you will find this funny, but this is hysterical to me.

It’s a fucking TV show bro. Calm down. I had no idea they even got Netflix in prison. Do they even?? I guess they have to right? I dunno, it sounds to me like the Michigan Sheriff is the one watching too much Netflix here.

TV shows and film have glorified and depicted jail in a positive light since Shawshank Redemption. Jail always looks fun as shit in movies. Just a bunch of famous actors fucking around, cracking jokes and overcoming some obstacle while making lifelong friends and shit. The Longest Yard literally made me want to drop out of school and go play ball with Terry Crews, Nelly and Adam Sandler.

Seriously though, the movies and shows are all fun and games, but that doesn’t actually make jail cool. I don’t know why this Sheriff is trippin. There are a ton of reasons, fair and unfair, why people are locked up in this country. But because Orange is the New Black is not one of them. Nobody in their right mind would think its cool to go to jail because of that TV show. And if you do, you are probably a motherfucker I don’t want in my society anyway.

The Industrial Prison Complex is one of the worst things that ever happened to our country. Top 3 worst things. Fueled by racism, it has literally ruined our society and culture in many parts of the United States. The second they privatized prisons, is when they started a chain reaction of problems in our country we can now never fix.

Worry about the Industrial Prison Complex, not the fucking color of the clothes because of Netflix.

PS - And yo, if you are watching Orange is the New Black and thinking that shit is cool, I would suggest you go back and watch the old episodes of Oz on HBO. See how cool that shit is.

Final Destination Fiends: Dude Was Supposed to be on BOTH Malaysia Airlines Flights

Holy shit. This is absolutely INSANE.

So this motherfucker was supposed to be on BOTH Malaysia Airlines flights. BOTH. Let that sit in for a second.

He had a ticket for the plane that went missing and changed it the DAY OF. So he dodges that bullet, luckiest shit in the world. Then weeks later, he has a ticket for this plane that was shot out of the sky…and changed it, DAY OF.

Is that not the craziest story you have ever heard in your life?? I’ve been sitting here freaking out since I watched this trippy shit. Thank god I’m not with Ron right now shrooming my face off when I saw this. This is just mind-blowing, it’s incomprehensible. What are the fucking odds to have both tickets period? Then to change both flights?

Seriously. If I’m this fiend right now, I’m playing the lottery every day. Booking a trip to Vegas and playing every slot, every table, betting every game. Because either he is literally the luckiest fiend in the world right now, or he needs to lock himself in a padded room ASAP. Cause this is some straight Final Destination shit. And those fiends in the movies only cheated death once! This fiend did it twice! Do you know how sour Death must be right now?

PS – Not making light of either situations. Both incidents are absolutely terrible and my worst nightmare. Can’t imagine what those families are going through. But this story is literally out of this world. I can’t get over it.

I Think I Have a Crush on Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey works quickly.

The women’s bantamweight champion stopped Alexis Davis at 16 seconds of the first round. Rousey improved to 10-0 with all wins by way of submission, KO or TKO.

Rousey rocked Davis with a solid right, secured an immediate judo toss and landed nine punches, knocking out Davis and forcing the referee to stop the fight in what became the second-fastest knockout in UFC title bout history.

VIA:

16 seconds?? She knocked that chick out in 16 seconds?? Did you see that shit??

I don’t think I could knock out my little sister in 16 seconds, let alone a trained MMA fighter. And her boobs looked amazing the whole time.

I can just see my whole life ahead of me. Sitting ring side, getting blacked out while she beats up chicks. Spending all her money on mook while she trains all day. Then every time @Oakshades pisses me off Ima have her put that fiend in a arm bar or some shit.

I’m 100% in love. Ronda, what’s good girl? I’m trying to be your sparring partner.

You Got a Fucking Dart in Your Neck (Queens Edition)

MAIN--McDonalds-Stab-Victim

queens-man-stabbed

A man walked into a McDonald’s in Queens on Tuesday morning, chatting on a cellphone and with a knife stuck in his back.

 The man, Andrew Hardy, was apparently involved in a dispute with two individuals who have yet to be apprehended, police told the Los Angeles Times on Wednesday.

 “I heard everybody screaming and it was a lot of commotion,” witness Tromaine Yancey told New York’s CBS 2. “The guy came and he was standing there with a knife in his back and it was a kitchen knife.”

 Officers responded to Jamaica, Queens, at about 10 a.m. Tuesday after receiving 911 calls from inside the restaurant.

 “He was cool and calm. But you could tell he was shaken up,” said Michel Green of Jamaica, 43 and a friend of Hardy’s, told the New York Post. “I went to pull the knife out, but someone said, ‘No, no! It might have hit an artery!’”

 Hardy, 53, was treated and released from Jamaica Hospital in Queens.

 “Everybody was standing there to make sure he didn’t fall backwards on the knife,” Yancey said.

 Hardy has been arrested more than 100 times, police said.

This is such an extreme version of this:

That shit is still hilarious.

Only in fucking Queens could you find a fiend doing a real life Frank the Tank impression with a fucking knife in his back at McDonalds. Jesus christ lol, that shit is so fiended. I have no idea how I would react to this at all. That shit is so OD extreme.

This is why in NYC I stick to Taco Bell, Wendys, and Chipotle.

Also, I realize this is a few days old. I saw this and bugged out but only today did I realize it was in Queens and not some bumblefuck town. That’s too good to pass up.

Shout Out To @ComplexMusic @ComplexMag for including @FiendBassy Last Winter in the Top 40 Albums of 2014

Screen Shot 2014-06-25 at 10.53.48 AM

Earlier this year, Bas joined J. Cole as the only other rapper signed to Cole’s new Dreamville/Interscope imprint, and with good reason. Born in Paris but raised in Queens, Bas has spent the last few years honing his skills on the mixtape circuit before rising to the occasion with memorable guest verses on Cole’s Born Sinner and DJ Khaled’s Suffering From Success in 2013.

Last Winter, his debut album, finds Bas on the front line of success, and for someone who is so close to Cole, he does a great job of distinguishing his voice with homegrown narratives and stellar production from close friend and in-house beatmaker Ced Brown. While Bas is clearly more comfortable working within this aforementioned space, cuts like “Your World” also prove he can step into a different lane and make a pop rap record. This will be the last winter you didn’t know about Bas. —Edwin Ortiz

VIA: Complex - Bas – Last Winter
