Boats and Hoes (c) Step Brothers

I love boat shoes...I love Vans. However, I can't say I would have guessed that the two would have blended so well. Below we have four versions of the Vans Vault Del Barco LX. No pricing... Sowwie, but be expecting these to hit stores sometime this month :)

What's my mutha f*&#n name? (c) JIGGA

Mr. Shawn Carter who rarely does interviews allowed himself to be put in the hot seat by Bill Maher for a special episode of Real Time with Bill Maher... I was relieved that it wasn't the typical interview that consists of the same boring questions...Bill Maher asked some relevant things, and he (or his writers) did some research when it came to Jay-Z's music repetoire... lol

Part 1

Part 3

I just love the colors blue, gold, red, and white together. This shoe is stellar... And I like very few SB low's... Thank you Eric Koston for creating this rendition of the SB dunk. This shoe should hit stores within the next few months. I might have to introduction these to the collection :)

The Man With One Red Shoe (c) Robert Klane


Those that know me know that I have never been a huge fan of the color red... But I AM a HUGE fan of all things velcro, so for the Nike Sportswear Blazer AC High LE I might have to make an exception. I don't know anything about a release or a price for this shoe. In fact, I read somewhere that it's available at a few sneaker shops already... HOWEVER, there is supposed to be a wider release for the shoe sometime later this year. I'll be waiting...

We Gotta Do Better Wednesday!

KEVIN JOHNSON
Mr. Johnson, former Phoenix Suns point guard and current Mayor of Sacramento has been receiving some negative press lately for his alleged misuse of Americorps money... To the tune of 400,000+ dollars. How is this possible you ask? Well, in the Americorps program an individual is supposed to work with an organization to combat poverty. It's basically volunteer work except the individual that is accepted is offered a very modest living stipend... But they have to be in some way, shape or form working to fight poverty. Mr. Johnson is accused of having the Americorps volunteer clean his car, pick up his dry cleaning and pick up his lunch.... I'm pretty sure those things couldn't pass as unconventional ways to combat poverty.... Come on Kevin!

To my people in leadership positions, they ALREADY expect us to not be legit...Lets work on proving them wrong. WE GOTTA DO BETTER.

Weekend Update (c) SNL

A couple updated trailers for some movies that I previously posted...





Chris Rock's Good Hair


Inception in HD!

Saturday, August 22, 2009

Inception n. The beginning of something, such as an undertaking; a commencement



Even on bootleg this trailer looks AMAZING. What is it about? Some sci-fi-esque action film that takes place within the architecture of the mind... Vague? Most definitely so! Lol. Christopher Nolan how I love thee... There is so much mystery surrounding this film...I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it lives up to the hype and will NOT disappoint! Hopefully they let some secrets out about it soon. Coming to theaters JULY 16, 2010... Grrrr, I have so long to wait :(

SONG OF THE WEEK

OOOOOH AHHHH sock it to me (c) Missy E.

We Gotta Do Better Wednesdays...

So, I've been getting on Irresponsible White People (IWP's) on Wednesdays for quite some time... I figured it was time to switch it up a lil bit and put some of my people under the microscope (as if we aren't enough... I KNOW I KNOW). But SOME nigra's coonsatiable actions cannot SOLELY be blamed on "the man" (or can they..? Hmmm... POSSIBLY, lol)... and I am not the type of individual that defends the actions of my fellow coloreds when they are blatantly WRONG *see Boondocks episode The Trial of R. Kelly Season 1* for proof of what we as a people should NOT do. So DBW will shed light on people that need to take responsibility for the role that they play in their actions because they are setting us back... And for the first installment we have...

Darius Chappille

Mr. Chappille allegedly exposed himself on a plane to a passenger beside him, and then when the passenger didn't respond to him as he would've liked... He punched her in the face! After punching the passenger apparently Darius became even more irrate and began running down the aisle of the plane slapping multiple other passengers. When police had arrived to take Mr. Chappille into custody he was completely buck-ed naked.


I'm familiar with people having a fear of rejection but SHEEZ! This was sooo not ballin.

So happy togetherrrrr (c) The Beatles

CHICAGO AT NIGHT!!! ...... Jealous yet?

Sowwie for neglecting my blog duties... My transition to the Chi has been a rather crazy one... I am happy to report that I am no longer beefin with the Red Line and am getting things together before Law School. I LOVE my job and the law students/lawyers I have met there. Matter of fact, the entire staff are pretty much AMAZING!!! I promise I will not forsake you again on the blog tip... I'm BACKKKKKK! Below are a few pics I've snapped over the course of the few days that I've been a Chi-Town resident...




Heading to the Chi... I had to sneak Keyser on the megabus. Lol. He was a good puppy :)





I hate that all the employees in this store ask everyone if they need help EXCEPT me... But I still stop here because they have great sales and cheap clothes (c) Shannon Simmons. They were nice to meeeeee.... AND I got some amazingly wonderful CHEAP shoes :)


*D
I made some pretty amazing vinyl purchases thus far! Shoutout to Reckless Records!
*Disregard the dirty Vans in the background...


I smashhhhhhed this burger at Stella's Diner on N. Broadway b4 the Air and Water show :)



My weakness. Thank God these weren't sold in any grocery store I ever went 2 in Columbus... I really need to practice restraint while in the Chi.



I snapped a pic walkin pass Wrigley Field, headin home... What was I wearing? A Cardinals jersey... Yeah, I'm a jerk like that :-p StL HEAUX!


A random Bentley I saw walking home

I had to get a pic of the nigga that thought he was 'supa dupa fly' (c) Missy Elliot sportin the dress sandals with the THICK white dress socks lol.

MOVIE MONDAY!!

Sooooo, I have a rather extensive film collection so I figured why not share my catalogue with the world... I decided that on every mid Monday of the month I will show you a movie in my collection that I think you need to experience and in turn, LOVE.


The FIRST Mid Month Movie Monday (tongue twister right?) isss...... MEMENTO (Yes, ANOTHER word that starts with an 'M') Check out the trailer below...

A lot of you may know Christopher Nolan from these two little movies he directed called Batman Begins and The Dark Knight... But this movie is what initially made me fall in love with him. What is it about? This guy that has issues with his memory and is trying to uncover the murder of his wife... But it's soooooo much more than that. CHECK IT OUT and let me know what you think! ;-)

Break ya neck! (c) Busta Rhymes

YUM YUM

I'm not gonna lie... If I saw these on a fella I might look twice...


Clae Russell's - Wool available now for $130 HERE

That girl looks like Scarlett! (c) Cel



After we got out of G.I. Joe... My drunken friend Marcel insisted on calling EVERY red head white girl Scarlett... the character from G.I. Joe.. He's RUDE, and fell in love with pseudo Scarlett's at least 10 times that night. Lol


My thoughts on G.I. Joe *no spoilers*

1. I am lookin for one of those super human suits on ebay...
2. Sienna Miller's walk was distracting, intense and extra. I blame that crazy bodice thing she was wearin
3. The Nano maker dude looks like Marilyn Manson and Keanu Reeves' love child, and he sounds like James Earl Jones with autotune
4. CGI > Plot
5. The twist was kinda wack/predictable.
6. I really liked the story behind Black Thunder and White Lightning
7. I should've seen Funny People.


2 out of 5 starts at BEST... See at your own risk... Just don't say I didn't warn ya!

IRRESPONSIBLE WHITE PERSON WEDNESDAY!

Michelle Belliveau


A Wisconsin man got caught up! He was planning on having a rendez vous with one of his lovers only to open the motel room door and see his wife plus three other females. Why is HE not the IWP this week? Oh, he definitely was in the running, but Michelle gets the title for having glued the mans penis to his stomach. Now all of the women are facing criminal charges. What's even more strange about this? All the women in the room were romantically linked to the man... EXCEPT Michelle... Odd....

LOU LOVE!!



I must say it's weird seeing Jeremy Maclin evolve into this FANTASTICAL wide receiver when it seems like just yesterday I watched him play in High School against my lil bro. Congrats to my fellow StL-ian for after MUCH deliberation acquiring a 5 year 15.5 mill (9.5 guaranteed) contract!
