In order to raise awareness about the treatment of prisoners in Guantanamo Bay, Mos Def (now known as “Yasiin Bey formerly known as Mos Def”) made a video in which he undergoes the same force-feeding tactics used in the military prison. Yikes!

  1. He should have watched Showtime instead.

  2. Wait, he changed his name? How am I going to assure someone that something is most definitely going to happen, while at the same time showing them that I’m hip and saving precious syllables?

    Also, it took me a while to read his new name because I kept on reading it as “Jasmine Guy” or “Yasmine Bleeth.”

  3. He’s handsome and does interesting, often moving things. I like this guy and not just because I’m a white person . Now off to brunch with my shelter dog before yoga!

    I miss this blog.
