Wakey Wakey, Eggs and Bakey

I definitely need this:
Breakfast Maker
Now that I'm older, I'm really trying to find things for my future home. I want to be prepared.

Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood

Don't judge me, but I kind of sort of liked this movie:

Alvin and the Chimpmunks, even though it looks corny, had some nice singing in it. They actually harmonized well and kept their musical integrity. Please don't judge me.

Little People In the City

Slinkachu does it again:

I really need to find his book. I'm growing quite fond of his photography.

The Art of Storytelling

I found another cool artist:

Slinkachu is this amazing photographer who uses the premise of miniature figurines and puts them in regular urban settings. I'm a fan.

Dumb In My Backpack

These backpacks are amazing:
Nike SB Eugene Backpack
The Nike SB backpack is everything I've ever wanted in a backpack and some. Someone spot me $100.


Has anyone seen "The Warriors"?

This is one of the biggest cult classics in history. It's about a gang who was framed in the killing of a crime boss. Essentially, they have to make it back across town to their turf in the middle of the night while all the gangs in the area try to attack them. It's straightforward, but it's amazing. Oh, and apparently there's a remake coming soon! Life is good.

Look Back At Me

My favorite Lego artist, Nathan Cunningham has done it again:

I wonder if you can display those things in your home. Apartment ideas anyone?

Don't Be Afraid

No homo, but I really want to be like this guy:

Terrence Howard is more than an amazing actor. He's also an amazing musician and all around renaissance man. When I do a movie about my life, Terrence Howard can play me in my 30's. Michael Ealy will play me in my 20's. Ok, I'm revealing too much. Anyways, have a nice day.

You Can Do It Too

Yes, I am always thinking forward and I already found what I wanted the master bed in my house to look like:

I love it, no homo. But, in all seriousness, what would be a better/cute (yes, I used cute) aphrodisiac for you and your new spouse than bedding of this nature? I rest my case.

Is Anybody Else

As sick of this show as I am?

This show has turned into a gimmick. It was cool for a while. Now, people need to let it go.

The Reason California Rules the World

Another California kid, Reggie Bush, while being an electrifying back, gave us this wonderful treat during the NFC divisional game:

Yes, he did "My Dougie" at the end of his run. Please be jealous of California.

She Was Like, "Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa"

If anyone has seen, "The Carter" documentary, they might have noticed this song that Lil Wayne did that had no title, but had a pleasant beat to it. I was in sadness because I didn't know when this song would be released. Well, on January 10th, Lil Wayne made my day. The song is called "Damn Damn" and features T. Pain. Yes, T. Pain, master of exquisite hooks is in this song too. Please enjoy:

Hey Lil' Mama

If anyone hasn't seen it, they need to see Lil Wayne's documentary, "The Carter":

This movie is one of the top three best documentaries I've seen in my entire life. It's not too long. It's not too short. The best part is it goes in depth into the psyche of Lil Wayne. It also helps that Lil Wayne is hilarious. "I'm gettin' a lil' bit nuuuurrrbus."

Homie's Over Here Tryna' Tell Some Jokes

I have a new favorite comedian:

About two hours ago, I just got done watching Aziz Ansari's comedy special, "Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening". This man is so funny. I could not stop laughing. I feel like we're kindred spirits, no homo. He has me laughing every 30 seconds, literally. "Whaaaaat! I gotta go change my Facebook status!"

For All Those Who Can't Be With Us

R.I.P. Gaines Adams:

Linemen don't get much credit in the NFL, however, Gaines Adams was one of the best defensive ends in the league. He was often overlooked and underrated, but this guy was the truth. He died of a heart attack at 26. I'm telling you, heart health is a serious thing. You only have one so keep it working well.

Your Love Is King

I was watching Kill Bill: Vol. 2 tonight and the main antagonist, Bill said something very interesting about people and identity. Here's what he said:

"Now, the staple of the superhero mythology is; there is the superhero and there is the alter ego. Batman is actually Bruce Wayne, Spiderman is actually Peter Parker; when that character wakes up in the morning, he's Peter Parker. He has to put on a costume to become Spiderman and it is in that characteristic, Superman stands alone. Superman didn't become Superman, Superman was born Superman. When superman wakes up in the morning, he's Superman. His alter ego is Clark Kent. His outfit with the big red “S”; that's the blanket he was wrapped in as a baby when the Kents found him. Those are his clothes. What Kent wears; the glasses, the business suit, that's the costume; that’s the costume that Superman wears to blend in with us. Clark Kent is how Superman views us, and what are the characteristics of Clark Kent; he’s weak, he’s unsure of himself, he’s a coward. Clark Kent is Superman’s critique on the whole human race."

I find that interesting because I think people do hide a lot of their positive aspects. For whatever reason, people hide their intelligence, athleticism, kindness, etc. just to fit in. I just don't think we were made to fit in. If that was the case, we would all have the same talents or none at all.

Despicable Me

I have a question. How come all of a sudden on Facebook, people are giving themselves fake names? I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure people's middle names are not things such as, "bigdog" "minaj" "harajuku" or "bossman". I digress. I don't know why but I'm becoming quite fond of these things:

Yes, crew neck sweatshirts are the business. Yes, I have my school's version of it. Yes, it is that cool in real life.

Guess Who's Back Up In the Building?

I need to go vintage on this one:

Astro Boy was one of the longest running and original superhero cartoons. It came from Japan, but Americans loved it. It started out in black and white which lets you know how old it is. Let's just say all your human acting robot shows and games came from this show. Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-check it out.

Soldier, Raise Your Sword Up High

Swing it like a Samurai. Ok, so one of my favorite movies, "Afro Samurai" has a sequel called "Afro Samurai: Resurrection":

It's oh so epic. Did I mention the RZA is all over this movie? Just watch it.

Just Bring It

This video never gets old:

"You kill the joe, you make some mo'!" Gets me every time.

It's Time

Guys, I finally have to come out to the world:

Yes, I am a Farmville addict. I know it seems crazy, but this game is fun. Everyone needs to hop on this ASAP. Nobody's too cool for this game. Please come see me in some grape planting. I'm just saying. I'm just saying.

Back to the Lecture at Hand revisited

Remember that song I told everyone about in my previous blog? Well, someone did a cover to it and surprisingly, it makes the song that much more beautiful. I can't believe I entertain this.

Maybe We Should Slow It Down

I just had to give a shout out to my favorite italian dish:

Chicken pesto linguine from Maggiano's is amazing. Yes, I just made an extremely obese statement by blogging about food, but I just want to open up people's worlds and palettes. To be honest, I'm a pesto fan. Pesto consists of ground up pine nuts and basil combined with garlic and olive oil. It's a very healthy condiment and it tastes great. Did I just give a culinary tip and recommendation? Yes I did. I'm cool like that. I'm hip like that.

Because My Hall Mates Don't Have Respect

I'm up. I just saw the hyped up movie "Avatar" and...
It was cool. The graphics were on point. The story was great. It was epic. But seriously, why did it have to take over a decade to create? It took a decade to create this:

It looks pretty similar to today's CGI animation. I'm not a movie editing master, but that's just how I see it. Oh well, it did well in the box office and that's all that matters.

Back to the Lecture at Hand

I don't know if anyone has heard of Bangs, but he is an up and coming rapper. Some people compare his lyrical style to that of a Lil Wayne combined with the flow of Jay-Z. I'm a fan. Here's one of his most popular singles:

I joke I joke. But, what's sad about this is that rap like this is popular in Africa-no joke. Yes, it's funny for us to look at and laugh, but he's trying..........................................
Man, I'm just playing with you guys. This guy is horrible. Please laugh. I'll be late for that.

Roller Coaster, of Love

I must say, the BCS title game was great, even with Colt McCoy injured. His freshman backup, Garrett Gilbert, played as well as any freshman would that played in the national championship after having only thrown 26 passes prior to that time. But, you know who showed out?
Crimson Tide running back Mark Ingram goes into the end zone untouched on a two-yard run in the second quarter against Texas in the BCS national championship game.
My boy Mark Ingram. That's my new role model. That is all.

My President is Black, My Lambo's Blue

I don't really like BAPE shoes, but their Barack Obama shoe is kind of on point:
New Obama Bape Sneakers Shoes
Even though these shoes are cool and will be cool 50 years from now, I still think wearing Barack Obama apparel, for the most part, is tacky. I saw someone who was about 23 walking around with a Barack Obama tall tee and some jean shorts, coupled with some Payless flip flops. If that's not style, I don't know what is.

As Real As It Gets

So, apparently this woman trashed a McDonald's because she didn't like her hamburger. They offered to refund her money, but in a true "keepin' it real" moment, she decided to trash the store. I don't understand. It's just a burger at the end of the day and it's cheap. Here's a picture of the lady in her rampage:
In this Dec. 27, 2009 still made from video provided by the ...
Besides the fact that she looks like Precious, this woman is a failure in life. Did she really have to pick up the "wet floor" sign and throw it? In her rampage, she caused thousands of dollars in damage. I must add though, I hope everyone notices that she "kept it real" and it didn't go wrong.

And I Love It

Guess who's back?

Yes, the Delorean is back. The Delorean Motor Company based in Humble, Texas, recently purchased the original blueprints of the Delorean from the Italian creators and are building the original Deloreans at their plant. I want one, but I don't have money like that.

This Don't Make No Sense

I know this is random, but why does everything in the dollar store absolutely suck except for candy and drinks? I mean, you do get what you pay for, but really? There's poor organization and people always steal from that store. These are the only good one dollar things:

Won't Land

Has anyone noticed that basketball phenom Brandon Jennings' hair went from this:

To this:

To this:

And all the way back to the first one all in about a year's time? I don't understand, this man's hair grows at the speed of light. I don't get how he can have it from a flat top to short hair and then have twists with good length in less than a year. The world may never know.

Chillin' In the Phantom, Listening to Opera

My boy Bobbydubb might have just opened up my musical world. I don't really like techno music that much. I just think it's ok at best. However, next to Daft Punk, I am now a fan of Pogo:

This Australian DJ will take popular children's movies, find a trademark song, and remix it. The catch, however, is that he only uses the original music. He simply splices and rearranges it. He also always makes an accompanying video with it. Here is the obscenely beautiful result:

Oh, I Can't Believe It

I saw this in D.C. a while back and I just had to show the world:

Yes, this is real. Drank is an anti-energy drink and was created to relax its users. I have yet to try it. I don't know if I'll ever be able to because I can't stop, won't stop.

It Ain't Trickin' If You Got It

I wonder, why do people have such an attachment to inanimate objects? I'm not saying objects don't have symbolism behind it, but people just need to let it go. It's not that serious. I already know that when I get old, it's going to happen to me. I just hope it's not that bad. Speaking of things with sentimental value, I'm in love with weird things and I might have just found one more thing to love:

I am now a fan of Nathan Cunningham art. Lego art is schweeeeeeet.

I'm So Emotional, I Love My Block

I'm a fan of this exceptional singer:

Melanie Fiona is one of those rare young singers that, get this, CAN ACTUALLY SING. That means no autotune, no producer modulation, no overpowering beats to cover up the voice. She can't just sing, she can saaaaaaang.

I'm Comin' In When I Feel Like

My guilty pleasure:

I love this show. It's clearly a mindless show, but they're so entertaining. Once again, I'm not gay.

Slow Down, Kemosabe

Please see District 9:

I thought it was just going to be another movie about aliens and things getting blown up, but it was one of the most provocative movies I've ever seen. It explores basic rights, not human ones, though. What's weird is that even though in the movie you're watching aliens being mistreated and not having rights, it's actually the exact way white South Africans treated black South Africans during Apartheid. Look it up.

Then Smack It Like E. Honda

I know everyone remembers Street Fighter:

A good percentage of my childhood was spent beating that game on every mode as every character. I ain't crazy, no, yes I am.

I'm Scared

Has anyone seen Jay-Z's "On to the Next One" video:

Someone please tell me this isn't what I think it is. It really scares me. Someone help me. I'm getting nightmares.
