In Memory Of…

Monday, May 31st, 2010


ALL of the fallen soldiers

ThunderCracker’s born day was yesterday. He is still a big presence in my mind as are all the people that I miss dearly, Megatron, Kenny, Herb Shalat, my dad. All soldiers. Some are veterans of foreign wars and others are casualties of a silent, subtle domestic war that continues to this minute.

I feel like spending some time reminiscing on where I have come from. Without the people that have come thru my life in one way or another I’m sure I would not have become the person I am today. As long as I breathe their memory lives thru me…

Ass Backwards Indonesia…

The ultra othodox reactionary Islamic nation of Indonesia just put a law into affect that bans tightpants.

Not from rappers like Lil’ Wang, but from women.

Men dressing up like women in Indonesia will still be acceptable

*pew, pew, pew!*

Complex magazine hollered at the kid again to participate in their rap music roundtable review they call ‘The Consensus‘. This time around we were to drop a few words on the new KanYe West single featuring Dwele titled ‘Power’. It’s a good song that I could envision being on the ‘808s & Heartbreak’ album. Musically it fits into that groove while lyrically KanYe is rapping and not using the spartan repetitive prose he employed in 808s. Or the autotune.


This what the fux I’m tom ’bout. That Eminem single you sent out was great for retahds and losers to get dressed to, but this shit here is what a Wall Street daytrader showers to in the morning. All ego with no apologies. Like Jordan shooting free throws with his eyes closed.

One day in the near future someone will uncover 808s and wonder how our culture produced that futuristic album but couldn’t follow up that movement. KanYe dialed his shit back to put this together and its still gonna be a crazy single. The live instrument concert version will be off the hook.


Now peep all the reviews from the distinguished panel – The Consensus

Celebrate National Running Day 2010…

nb nat running day

and win a pair of New Balance shoes!

Now y’all know how I feel about running for no reason, but as part of my promise to Chocolate Snowflake to become healthier and increase the quality of my lifestyle I’ve become more active at least in walking. Little things like eschewing an elevator or escalator for stairs and walking to my favorite supermarket (PathMark Atlantic Terminal FTW!) are part of the program.

But I am also admittedly a rewards-driven animal. My new favorite sneaker company is stepping in with a promotion that is right up my alley. [ll] to something being up my alley. New Balance is giving away free sneakers on June 2nd for National Running Day, and you don’t even have to be some psycho sidewalk jogger to win yourself a pair either. It’s as easy as going to and creating a profile.

If the global epidemic of obesity in developed nations is secretly some alien plot to fatten us up because that will make us taste better at the armageddon BBQ then you are going to need yourself a pair of shoes that will help you run faster when the proverbial shit his the fan. If and when those stinking aliens catch me at least my feet will be comfortably stylish.
