Nite @ The Yume [SPIT THAT]

to say that i merely enjoyed my nite at the YUME is simply an understatement. The creative energy in that room was enough to keep a steady blaze on the west coast or at least spark a few forest fires. Some of my old favorite personal celebs showed they're faces (namely Ainsley Burrows) and everyone m.i.a stuntd... better catch next week, cuz it think i have abso no choice. RIP got another golden child under his arms, jealous yes i am =) . Expect to see me there a couple more thursdays i got a hunger for more... i curtsy to you Mr. Lewis!!! couple flicks of the social settings ... pay close attn. to the background the art work is no less than impecable thumbs up to Mike Yume, i think thats wat i'll call him!!!

Something You Need 2 Hear!

Something that has seriously been moving me in a strange yet erotic like way, has been the 2 latest leaks from Kanye West's album [808's & Heartbreak] with a November 25th release date . The tone is captivating and it explores a sublimely eclectic and artistic side of him. I can truly appreciate this coming from him. In the past Kanye has merely been a guilty pleasure of mine never really saying anything of worth or substance. But never the less he does it in a humorous and entertaining way. While i think highly of his new poetic style hes been getting a lot of slack for it, it would behoove anyone to try to impose depth and diversity upon simple minded americans pardon my back. I gracefully bow to and applaud Mr. West for his contribution to art. I assume the loss of a mother and girlfriend would rearrange a non prioritized mind. While I couldnt find the imeem rip of "Coldest Winter" listed below is a snippet of "Heartless" just to get your feet wet. Be sure to download both. Following the success of "Love Lockdown" i believe these two are relateable and speak to anyones soul. Its like magic.

after being "Put On" ( imagine that) to a phenomenal artist it only took him one day to re introduce himself into my world. While browsing my world wide web (not searching for him at all) i came across the very piece Mr. Lewis and I bantered about yesterday along with couple of others. The artist is Banksy he creates massive wall murals scattered around the city with clever underlining insiders, and quite frankly i now have a favorite artist. wow thanks!!! Oh and get this he's recently opened a pet store...check out the site -> pet shop

peep game...

Is Left Eye more Gangster than Bad Boy???

Apparently, according to KTU's music selection. I generally don't allow myself to listen to KTU just because it tends to make me upset and today is no exception. While at work about to slit my wrists, I got kinda sorta excited when one of all time favorite TLC songs comes on the radio, "Waterfalls". I don't know about you but I can listen to "Crazy, Sexy, Cool" over and over again. So I'm jamming at my desk and really about to tear it down when they cut off Left Eyes verse!!! WTF!! Is this verse too "GANGSTA" to be played on KTU??? I just don't get it. I mean Left Eye was cool rapper her rhymes were tight but honestly this verse was a step up from bubble gum rap.. I was fuming I just could not understand what KTU's problem was and just as I was about write this blog I hear "More Money More Problems", and I'm thinking to myself 'hold up' here we have a song FT. Diddy, Mase, and the Remarkable B.I.G(R.I.P) so maybe they'll only play Diddy's and Mase's verse (no offense but they are not really all that gangster), but not BIG's.. I sat and waited and sure enough I hear "B.I.G., P-O, P-P-A" and I'm completely floored.. Is KTU trying to tell us something? I know they are not doubting BIG's "Gangsta"!!! So I sat and thought about it, and it came to me Left Eye was a different type of "Gangsta", I guess burning down your fiances crib gives crazy points with KTU.. Even after death they dont wanna piss her off.

R.I.P Lisa Left Eye Lopez (u still got these white boys scurred)


Family Ties...

I had a list of topics i made yesterday eager to discuss this morning...
but none of which are greater than expressing the ecstatic feeling i have about how i spent my yesterday. It started with a regular day of work... yadda yadda ya.... I ventured out & caught up with one of the best. Since unfortunately i wasnt able to catch his open mic ("SPIT THAT") thursday nite i think our entire day of conversation, music and poetry should suffice. Making that train ride back to harlem an easier pill to swallow. to the public he's better known as RIP the Ruler, but to me he's Jaime my oldest boy. We spoke on all the recent events that have empowered yet devestated our lives realizing that we are two minds that are intellectually standing on the same cliff, we groped all facits politics, media, careers, hustle, relationships, creative talent you name it. No stone left unturned, theres nothing more refreshing to me than a tall glass of combative & meaningful dialogue. A blood lust I have sought after for quite some time. A trip down memory lane (art&design h.s. holllaa!!!) found us at the the mouth of the trainstation, where we parted ways with an agreement to stay connected and a pledged allegiance to the planetarium. Mind bending days like those keep me sane and grounded. Only thing missing was a cold flute of riesling, guacamole & tostitos.
With that sed make sure to show major love to my boy, the omnipitant [ RIP ] at his weekly spoken word/poetry (whichever tickles ur intrest) slam every thursday nite at the YUME in BROOKLYN. Surely you'll find me there & who knows maybe one day I will be ballsy enough to get up and drop something....hmmm... never know!!!

Fallin' off the Grey's Bandwagon...

Sitting on my couch half listening to Grey's Anatomy has me kinda sorta peeved. Not that I was never a Grey's Fanatic (secretly wishing McDreamy would take my pulse) but I just feel the longer this show is on the air the more soap opera-y its become. Don't get me wrong my girls would be the first to tell you that I enjoy a juicy story, but Grey's just seems to be trying a tad too hard. I work in the medical field, in a large hospital at that, and while there is your in office scandals(Doctor's and Secretary's
getting it on) I have not met an entire clinical team who has the time, patience, or stamina to sleep with one another!! This concept has been done over and over again. You would think these producers may switch it up just a lil bit.

We have the:

Mousy, Shy Un-Confident lead actress
(Reminds me of Ally McBeal)

Sexy, Scared of Commitment, Ready to Commit, Scared Again Leading Man(How many of those are on Prime Time TV??)

No Hair on Her Tongue BFF.

Bad Boy Gone Good that doesn't want anyone to find out.

Feels like "California Dreams" all over again (hopefully I'm not so old that I'm the only person who remembers "surf dudes with attitudes" lol.)

While tonights show comes to an end I pray the writers come up with something with more originality.

Until next time

Urs Truly,

& the winner is...

if McCain makes anymore of a fool of himself he might as well throw in the towel. He choked last nite, bottom line. Obama just sat there and ate all of his cheap shots and low blows with out even raising more than eyebrow... while watching it i was constantly doubling over with laughter at how McCain looked like Dr. Evil (sooo stiff) and sat patiently waiting for that dummy Sarah Palin to jump on his lap like mini me and crawl across the table trying to snap at Barack... (wiping the tears from my eyes) Notice how he never directly answered any questions and spent the entire hour and a half in attack mode, signs of a defeated man. I think we might just have this one in the bag... never know tho, we're fuckn with the biggest thugs of them all ... the REPUBLICANS & they play dirty, so expect anything !!! So pls. lets rock the fuck outta this vote!!!
