Wall Street Is An Inside Job…

This documentary ‘Inside Job‘ will have you sick to your brain. Do you realize the kind of world we live in where a tiny group of people is literally robbing the entire world in plain sight? But that is how they have the game set up.

America: Why R Your Peeps So Dum?

Sadly, there is NOTHING you or I can do. We are fuxed the fux up. Everyone who you thought might could have saved us is in on the racket. If I didn’t like shopping as much as I do suicide would be a favorable option to being around when this shit all falls down.

Chocolate Snowflake’s Winter Wonderland…

Thursday, December 30th, 2010


During the blizzard of 2010 Chocolate Snowflake and I found some time to play around in the snow.

We went post-holiday shopping at my favorite store (Marshall’s, natch) and found her a pair of boots for the rest of the winter.


Cablevision went down in her apartment building so I couldn’t spend anytime on the internets. C.S. took the opportunity to get me out of the house.

We walked down Eastern Parkway which was reduced to a one lane traffic strip. Snowfall doesn’t stop the birds or the graf artists.


C.S. took me to the movies where we saw this documentary called ‘Inside Job’. Don’t go see that movie if you still think Obaama is any different from Bush I or II. He’s not. Dude was bought and sold from way back. We haven’t even begun to pay down on the debt that the financial industrial complex has put on our heads.

On Monday night Chocolate Snowflake took me to a play in midtown Manhattan called ‘Black Nativity Now‘. It was a cornbread circuit production full of dancing and praise sanging, as opposed to a chitlin circuit play which is filled with cooning and tomfoolery.

While the city was a mess and it would be several days before it could dig itself out from the snow, C.S. and I kept it moving. Offline but on our grind.

You have to do yourself a favor and peep this exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum of Art.

Fred Tomaselli

This dude was on some niiiiiice shit when he put together what you might call his collages. They are on another level tho’ from the collages of say Romare Bearden. Tomaselli tried to speak with God. I believe that he got an answer.

The Boot Camp Clique Chronicles…

Fur swag on one trillion. Shouts to Matthew Henson…

Dirty Jerz and Sean Price both sent me images of this parka. No doubt the joint is HOARD! I would have preferred an olive green or navy color, but this is the official tissue expedition parka.

Chocolate Snowflake recently gave me a book about Matthew Henson. That dude was super hardbody. Discovering the North Pole was some retarded shit. The North Pole is just ice over water. To get to the pole you have to literally commit yourself to die.


Henson loved adventure so much that he didn’t care if he never made it back home. He learned to communicate and fully integrated with the Inuit eskimos. But most of all Henson learned how to run a dog sled. Mushing dogs was key to moving supplies over the icy tundra and no one was better than Matthew Henson.

The Iditarod race is an 1150mile race across Alaska as an honor to Henson and all the expert dogmushers who navigate that rugged countryside. Timberland created a series of boots named after the great race and the 40-Below was the cornerstone boot. This is the holy grail of Timberland.

The following video is for Marq’Spekt, Dirty Jerz, cocotaso and all of the readers/viewers who have a respect for the craftsmanship of classic Timberland products.
