Does anyone realize that Pharrell has been making hits since the current college generation was toddlers? Yes, Pharrell Williams has been making hits since his sophomore year of high school. That's amazing. If anyone hasn't heard it yet, they need to get the "Despicable Me" soundtrack:
I know the movie hasn't come out yet, but Pharrell composed the whole album with Hans Zimmer. In other words, Pharrell teamed up with one of the two top movie score composers in the entire world. I'ma G, I'ma G
Here is the athlete to watch on the US soccer team:
Jozy Altidore is one of the most skilled US soccer players I've seen in awhile. He's young and brings pure athleticism to the table. If you want to see someone get juked out their cleats, this is the guy to watch. He also takes a lot of hits. Tough soccer players always get props.
DROID!! That commercial gets me every time. The Droid X beats the Blackberry for me because the data plan is the same price, and with the Droid it becomes a mobile hotspot. In other words, when you're in the airport and you don't want to pay for a stupid T-Mobile Hotspot or the limited bandwith of airport internet, you can pull out this bad boy and have your own internet. It's beautiful. Corporate Thuggin'
Sorry I've been M.I.A. I was in L.A. all weekend. Yes it was amazing. Yes I miss it already. Now, in the spirit of L.A. and celebrities and opulent living, I bring you this amazingly expensive piece of home decor:
It's called a Qlocktwo. It's $1,100 and tells you the time in a way that you can say it, as opposed to numbers. It's so beautiful. Cop this. Stolen from Uncrate.com
This piece is named "Complex Thoughts" its painted by Rochell Alexander. This picture honestly encompasses everything I believe I'm going through right now. The painting seems simple, yet complex at the same time. However, upon looking at it longer, you start to see various complexities that you missed at first. That's how I feel about myself. I'm a mass of idiosyncrasies and peculiarities that make me seem eccentric, but also genius. I'm making it more complicated than it is. Simply put, I like simple things but my thoughts are quite opposite. Enjoy.
John Krasinski is a wonderfully talented actor. His range is really impeccable. Maya Rudolph also played a good supporting role. It's about this boyfriend and girlfriend couple who are looking for places to raise their unborn child. When this movie previewed, I thought it was just a wanna-be indie movie that was cashing in on the appeal of John Krasinski from "The Office". I actually ended up forgetting that this movie even existed. I was bored tonight so I decided to give it a try. This movie cuts deep to the center of existentialist questions that all parents or wanna-be parents have. I don't want to ruin it, but watch it and be pleasantly surprised.
Have you ever had the feeling that you're working to your capacity knowing that it's all you have and hoping that it turns out alright? I'm there right now. It's excitingly scary and I just wish everything would turn out o.k. so I don't have to worry every day. Oh, and starting today, I begin writing my memoir. I'm thinking about doing a book about my blogs also, thus the reason why I'm writing in more prose lately.
I was talking to my friend Melanie the other day and we got on the subject of people who hustle. We ended up sharing the same pet peeve of hearing people talking about hustling, but not going anywhere. I guess I feel like being a good hustler entails working hard all the time and making at least nominal progress, but these days, everyone's "hustling", but for some reason not making any money or status. It makes no sense. If you're going to be a "hustler" do it like Young Jeezy and actually get somewhere. I'm just sayin'.....
Moccasins. I need a pair of moccasins. They're comfortable, yet functional, both things that I enjoy. Oh and if everyone didn't know, I'm pulling for the Celtics so I have to give them a shout out on the blog for beating the Lakers. It makes no sense that I'm from California and I don't like the Lakers, but I guess I don't like the fact that because they have Kobe, everyone's on their bandwagon. I believe if you're a fan, you're a fan of a team. If you're a fan of a person, that constitutes as groupie love. I'm just sayin'. Oh and I don't get why the world is on this whole going natural kick. Natural to me just equals naturally higher prices for simple products. At the end of the day, everything is natural. Even if it's made in the lab, the materials come from the earth. However, one natural thing that I do enjoy from time to time is pure cane sugar. It's an acquired taste but it does taste great in soda. Speaking of soda, check this one out:
Yes it is Cheerwine, cherry-flavored soda made from pure cane sugar. More please. Stolen from Uncrate.com
Good morning world. So, I'm going to this wedding today. I don't know why I mentioned that, except for the fact that I feel like being a wedding planner is easy money and I'm kind of jealous. Oh, and by the way, I'm trying to get my children's books published. If anyone has any publisher hook ups, I'd be much obliged. Oh and I'm feeling like a new tattoo is in order. Which one should I get:
This one means courage and valor.
This one stands for the supremacy of God. Decisions decisions...
The F1 Fly Dopp Kit is sleek, stylish, and deliciously retro, no homo. But in all seriousness, it's a durable carry on bag thats very reasonably priced. I hate carrying my football bag on. I want to look more dapper. Stolen from Uncrate.com
Ice Cube, despite his horrible "Are We There Yet" movie series is making a sitcom of the same title. I don't care how beautiful Essence Atkins is or how funny and buff Terry Crews is. Frankly, Ice Cube is corny, and he is the only one I know that could ruin a show with all-star tv actors. He's still a thug though. Don't get me wrong. You know what is good, though?
Yes, Tackle Box, the Cool Kids' newest mixtape, is out. From the first track, I must say it's their best mixtape. They get better with each mixtape. Get it so you can enjoy it.
