Deconstructing the Starbury Car Crash

The setup: Stephon Marbury is still livecasting, well, his life. Even as I write this post, there's music playing with a black screen on his Justin.TV screen. Marbury has eaten Vaseline. Cried. And now, we've got our first on-air car accident at around the 1:40 mark below: ↵

↵Let's go back and break this down: ↵

↵1:00 -- The philosopher Marbury reminds us it's always a positive day when we wake up and that a lot of people don't wake up. Fair point. ↵

↵

↵1:15 -- The natural transition into singing Happy Birthday, of course. ↵

↵

↵1:37 -- Why yes, Stephon, it would be nice if Mary J. Blige sang Happy Birthday to me. ↵

↵

↵1:46 -- [CRASH! Camera Tumbles.] ↵

↵

↵1:48 -- "Don't worry about it. Ain't nothin' but the devil." Yes, please repeat that verbatim when the insurance guy shows up. That should be sufficient evidence for your claim to be filed. ↵

↵

↵I didn't catch this live because I was out playing basketball, so maybe someone can fill me in if this was a one-car accident and his boy hit something like a light post or a big curb, but if that was an accident with another car shouldn't he have, you know, stopped? ↵

↵

↵I hope Starbury keeps going with this because it's comforting to know I can turn that stream at any given time and see something new and ridiculous. ↵
