by - November 24th, 2004
Brothas and Sistahs, we are gathud heeah tahday, around this feast of plenty, to partake in tha bounty laid before us. But before we do I'd like ta offa a few words of thanks, especially impo'tant during this heeah Thanksgiving season.
I know that each and ev'ry one of us has somethin' ta be thankful for. I know this, Brothas and Sistahs, beCaus-ah you would not be sittin there reading this if you did not have somethin ta read it on.
Can I git an Aaaaaaaaaa-Men?
And that soooomethin, be it Mac or PC, would not be sittin in front of you if you did not have the means to put it there.
Can I get a Ha-Lah-Loooooooo-YA!
So ya got Somethin ta be thankful fo', I knows ya do. I don't hafta to see it, cuz I can feel it in my bones-ah! Ya don't hafta say it cuz it is spoken in the very A-ya you breathe! Ya don't EEE-vin hafta acknowledge it cuz it is they-ya before ya, whether you acknowledge it or NOT-tah!
Can I git a witness?
Brothas and Sistahs, I've got a lot ta be thankful fo, I don't hafta search hard to find a reason ta give thanks, mah reasons sit befo' me, my reasons are clipped to mah belt and is plugged into mah ears, mah reasons sit 10 miles from my humble home, in the Mall at Millenia, or on the Internet: Praise Al Gore!
Mah friends, I'm thankful for the iMac. Yes I am! I'm thankful for all of that glorious technology artfully crammed into a two inch thick body! I'm thankful for the POW-WAH of the G5, and GLO-RAY of a 20 inch widescreen display! Can ya FEEEEEEEEL tha POW-WAH AND THA GLO-RAY???
Can I git an AAAAaaaaaaaaa-MEN?
I'm thankful for the G4 iBook! Ha-Lay-Lou-Ya! Ya don't hafta dig too deep into your pockets to own one, and owning one is heavenly; YES, I say HEA-VEN-LY!
I'm thankful for Apple's Special Deals Web site, because, Brothas and Sistahs, I'm a po' man, I say I'm a PO' MAN, but I'm RICH in love for technology. Yes I am, and I ain't aff-RAID tah say it! Apple's Special Deals makes it possible for a po' me like me tah buy the technology I lust for. Cuz when I was DEEEEEEEEP in despair cuz my POCKETS were bare, I could ALWAYS go there, and buy cheap hardware!
Can you say 'Refurb'? AAAAAaaaaaa-MEN! Ha-Lay-Lou-Ya!
I'm thankful for the iPod, for OS X, for GarageBand, and the iTunes Music Store; yes I am! Cuz it is the iPod that keeps me hummin', and its GarageBand that keeps me strummin'! AAAAAAaaaaaa-MEN!
It's OS X that stays up soooooooo long, and iTMS where I buy ALLLLLLLLL my songs! Ha-LAY-LOOOOOOOOOOU-YA!!!
And Yay, though I walk through the valley of crapware, I shall fear NO virus! I shall fear NO worm. For OS X is my protector, and a mighty protector it is! Can I git a witness?
Oh Yes, I'm thankful for all those things; yes I'm am. But most of all, Brothas and Sistahs, I'm thankful for Apple stock. It has tripled in value since this time last year, and is projected to double AGAIN! Praise Jobs and the crew at Apple!
Yes-ah, I've got a lot tah be thankful for, my friends, a lot tah be thankful for. And now, I await Friday, so that I can go and get more stuff to be thankful for.
Can I git an AAAAAaaaa-Men!
So, my friends, Brothas and Sistahs, if ya feel thankful, if you feel-ah the Pow-wah of your Pow-wah Mac, if your heart LEAPS at the OS X boot-chime, I want ya tah let me know about it. I want you tah tell me what makes ya thankful, and tell the WORLD-ah what makes ya thankful! Don't hold it back my friends; let the thanks pour forth!
Can I git a Ha-lay-lou-yay, and an AAAaaa-Men!
