Big Boi (feat George Clinton + Too Short) "Fo Yo Sorrows" Video
by josh keller · Published · Updated
In a time when people who want to be weird or outside the box have to try harder and harder to shock audiences, I always find it at least slightly amusing when George Clinton graces us with his presence. It is obvious within seconds of seeing him that he is genuinely weirder than just about everyone else in the world and he clearly is not trying at all, it is just him being himself. While this track isn’t one that really blows me away, the video is well worth your time just to see an old man who is infinitely cooler than all of us combined hanging out with one of the biggest hip hop stars of the last 10 years. Long live George Clinton.

Funeral fund established A fund has been established to help with the funeral costs for two brothers killed Thursday in a house fire at 1113 Carbon St., Syracuse.
Andres Austin, 11, and Carl Austin IV, 12, both died in the early morning fire at their home. The fire also killed family friend Amber Pirong, 20.
Funeral director Jan Maloff set up a fund through his DeWitt Memorial Funeral Home to help pay funeral costs for the boys, which will be a little less than $6,000. Any money collected above funeral and cemetery costs will be put toward a headstone, Maloff said.
Checks may be made out to DeWitt Memorial Home, and mailed to 4901 Jamesville Road, Jamesville, NY 13078. Credit cards may be used by calling the funeral home at 446-7570.
Raising funds, as opposed to going through the county for assistance, will allow the children to be buried in a cemetery near where their mother lives, Maloff said.
Calling hours for the boys are 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at the funeral home. Services are 10 a.m. Thursday at the funeral home.
Troopers probe fatal crash State police in Hastings and Fulton are continuing their investigation into a car crash Thursday that claimed the life of Timothy D. Schwalm, 20, of 794 U.S. Route 11, Central Square.
Schwalm was driving west on state Route 49 in West Monroe, near Whig Hill and Toad Harbor roads, when he attempted to pass another vehicle in a no-passing zone, troopers said.
That vehicle, a 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, was driven by Brandon A. Manning, of North Syracuse, troopers said. Manning’s age and address were not available.
Schwalm’s vehicle, a 2003 Ford Focus, struck the driver’s mirror of an oncoming car and then hit the driver’s side of another westbound vehicle as he attempted to get back into the westbound lane of Route 49.
Schwalm’s vehicle then swerved into the eastbound lane and struck a fourth vehicle head-on.
The driver of that vehicle, a 2006 GMC pickup truck, was Scott P. Bartkowiak, 45, of 102 Willowwood Lane, Camillus.
Bartkowiak was hurt, troopers said, but his injuries were not life-threatening. He was treated at University Hospital and released, troopers said.
After the crash, which occurred about 5 p.m., Schwalm was taken by SOVAC ambulance to University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Schwalm was a 2004 graduate of Paul V. Moore High School in Central Square. He would have celebrated his 21st birthday on Aug. 20. in our site 2003 ford focus
Lightning ignites trailer No injuries were reported Friday morning after lightning ignited a West Edmeston residential trailer, firefighters said.
The blaze was reported about 7:40 after a severe thunderstorm with heavy rain and hail rolled through the southeastern corner of Madison County.
The lightning struck a metal chimney at 11358 Skaneateles Turnpike, sending sparks through wiring along the trailer’s roof and ceiling, said county Fire Coordinator Joe DeFrancisco.
The fire was contained to one corner of the single-wide structure, and most of the family’s belongings were safely removed. The home is salvageable.
Firefighters said the occupants, the Land family, will stay with relatives until the damage is repaired.
About 30 volunteer firefighters from Brookfield, North Brookfield, Leonardsville, Hubbardsville, Bridgewater and West Winfield responded, as did West Winfield ambulance crews.
The trailer sits on top of a hill. Brookfield firefighters said lightning strikes are a common occurrence in high elevations this time of year.
“We just had one the other day,” said Dennis Johnson, first assistant chief for the Brookfield volunteer fire department. “It’s not unusual.” CAPTION(S):
