The Price Of Sugar…

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

This documentary is likely to get me off my sugar addiction. The invitation to attend is open to all interested in the subject matter.

Let’s get healthy Internets, and possibly get freedom in the process.

Greatest Threesomes Of All Time [ll]

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011


As the Internets Celebrities roll out another episode of ‘I.C. NYC’ I began to see the group reaching G.O.A.T. status. Who else brings this level of edutainment other than KRS-1. Except the Internets Celebrities do it without all the self-aggrandizement.

There have been other moments in our history when three dudes from similar yet disparate backgrounds came together to be great. Here’s a short list of some of the greatest threesomes [ll]…


No one can deny the fame or popularity of the Three Musketeers. They are hell’a ghey tho’. Let’s move along before I Tracy Morgan myself.


Was the Celtics ‘Big 3’ of Allen, Garnett and Pierce as great as Jordan, Pippen and Rodman? Of course not, but the 72-10 Bulls never had cool nickname either.


Maybe Dr.Dre. Eminem and Fifty Cent aren’t actually a threesome. They are together in this pic tho’ and that should count for something.

de la

De La Soul is hands down my favorite threesome in rap history. Sorry ’bout that Moe Dee.

knight rider

Okay, so Gary Coleman was only on Knight Rider for one episode but just think about the power that a magic negro midget, a talking car and David Hasselhoff’s pants were generating. The world still isn’t ready for that reality. R.I.P. Gary Coleman.

And without further adieu I give you Episode 3 of ‘I.C. NYC’ from the greatest threesome on the internets.

Smif N Wessun: Still Hard [ll]

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011


So much of music today is seen the same minute its heard. So with that in mind DuckDown gives you the visual treatment for Smif N Wessun featuring Styles P and Sean Price titled ‘That’s Hard’.

I mean, with these four(4) individuals on a track could it be anything but hardbody?

Copp this for your earholes: Smif N Wessun x Pete Rock = Monumetal


The police brought mase to the Monumental release party.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t the rapper.

The Bright Side Of Commerce…

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011


Transformers 3-D: Dark Of The Moon is in movie theaters as we speak. I know this because I went to a paid screening of the film last night even tho’ promo posters say the movie opens on Friday. This early opening could be the new method for studios to tout how much their blockbuster films have grossed for the opening weekend.

Frankly, this third installment of Transformers will need all the help it can get to recoup what has surely been a mammoth publicity budget along with the underwriting that has computer generated mechanisms destroying two(2) major U.S. cities. With all the money that was spent to produce this film unfortunately none of that guap went to the writing team.

I’m not going to tell you NOT to see this film because this is what a 3-D flick should look like. The film is day-glo bright, uber bombastic and constantly blowing up everything that moves into smithereens. The ten year old who lives in my heart enjoys these things immensely. Throw in a dinosaur or shark and he is in heaven. As a matter of fact, he was in heaven because they assigned all the Decepticons ‘shark moufs’.


The movie however is not child’s play. The violence isn’t meant to be implied. We don’t just see machine dismemberment we also see humans crushed and killed in the chaos. Don’t bring your ten year old to see this movie unless you also get high with your ten year old (which might also be too cool of you, from a parental standpoint).

I imagine this is Michael Bay’s final installment at the helm of this franchise and he doesn’t make any new friends on his way out of the door. I just hope Hasbro toys keeps the franchise poppin’ with possibly some prequels or does like DC Comics and revisions the entire concept. I always felt like the best storyline was some type of Cain and Abel shit with Megatron and Optimus Prime both being brothers vying for control of Cybertron.

The way the movie plays out now is on some campy cornball shit. Like comparing Adam West’s Batman to Christian Bale’s version. Except the Transformer’s franchise hasn’t given us Dark Knight depth yet. Transformers 3 was a nearly 3 hour product placement bonanza. In 3-D. There wasn’t a can of sodypop that wasn’t placed in the center of the screen for recognition and then removed. Maybe this is how Michael Bay pays for all of his explosions?

What else are you gonna do with your time this weekend especially if shit is a thousand degrees outside? Go treat yourself to Transformers 3-D and enjoy a bit of revisionist history along with some out of control commercialism. You are an American and you deserve it. And don’t forget to yell out “U.S.A.! U.S.A.!” at the end of the movie as I did in salute to all the Defense Department resources reallocated for the making of this film.
