I was recently asked by a coworker to recommend a hard disk drive to store PowerPoint presentations for a one-week event.

I suggested this one to her.

So +Pradheep Shanker posted a Bloomberg story that claims that a Jeb Bush-Derek Jeter group has won an auction to buy the Miami Marlins.

I was wondering whether there was a money person in the group, and Bush and Jeter were just the front faces (similar to the Dodgers, where Magic Johnson is the front face and Mark Walter has the money).

So I looked at an earlier Forbes article that made the following statement:

= = =
My sources say the Jeter-Bush group can put in about $200 million of equity and are currently "running around looking to raise money."
= = =

OK, Bush and Jeter can probably raise $200 million, but that's not enough to buy a major league baseball team - even the Marlins.

So I suspect that they'll need to bring someone else into the group with major bucks.

Or, if Bloomberg is right, they've already done so.

Insert "Oscar Munoz is a major investor in SoftComplex" joke here.

Remember when we wanted our comedians to be honest and edgy?

Me neither.

Actually, I do - barely. It was 1975, when Chevy Chase and Richard Pryor performed a job interview sketch on Saturday Night Live - a sketch that wouldn't be allowed on television today.

I don't always agree with Whoopi Goldberg's "View," but I find her to be more sensible than most. Here's what she recently said when someone decried cultural appropriation:

If we’re gonna go with cultural appropriation, wear natural hair. If we’re wearing white lady hair, isn’t that appropriation as well?

And she's also said this:

If you’re going to talk about appropriating, and what’s cool and what’s not cool, we’re all in deep doodoo, because we’re doing it to each other constantly.

Of course, Goldberg is no stranger to controversy. You know those Friars Club roasts, where anything goes and it's so raunchy that it's never taped? (Well, unless there's some special comedy show that's doing it.) Whoopi Goldberg was roasted at the Friars Club some time ago, and one of the roasters was her then-boyfriend, Ted Danson.

Danson is white, but that wasn't the issue.

The issue was that Danson was in blackface, and used a particular word that Richard Pryor used on network television in 1975 - the word that rhymes with the name of Roy Rogers' horse.

As a black woman, how did Goldberg react to this extremely offensive performance?

She loved it.

If people on the dais and in the audience were not aware of what the day was supposed to consist of, they should have checked to see what the tenor of these roasts are, and then made a decision as to whether or not they wanted to participate.

Ontario Emperor's music was originally released on mp3.com in 1999 and 2000, including the full-length album "Digital Judge" that was released in November 1999. After mp3.com ceased operations, Ontario Emperor released a free track on GeoCities. After GeoCities ceased operations, Ontario Emperor released a free collection of songs on last.fm. After last.fm ceased hosting music files, it was on to Bandcamp, where the song "Bare Plate" was released last month.

"It's been a while since I've released a full-length album," said the marketing flack who is pretending to speak for Ontario Emperor. "I'm happy that 'Salad' is finally available, and those who love melodic synthetica will enjoy the songs on this album."
