last night stopped over a friend of mine's house to check out his 42 inch plasma tv with the 360 hooked up to it... uh.. it kinda fucked it up for me once i got home and angrily stared at my tv. of course without a job the concept of actually getting one isn't even an ideal i can throw around BUT i am allowed to be damn irritated.

it was soooo, beautiful and it had these lights in the back (that I originally though were just there like 80's electronics stuff), these light light up depending on what's going on on the screen and it's perfection.

oh-kay i was was abnormally wrong on my original view of NBA 2k7. To put it bluntly i was dead friggin wrong, it's the dopest sports game that i've ever played, period.

i accept that my perfection needs some type of fine tuning, from time to time to maintain it's nirvana and this was was on those times.....

oh lost my job today, kinda a downer but in some ways.. well i'm staying positive and über focused... more later.

stay black.. or white.. or asian.. or whatever the hell you are.

Grandma's got a gun

Sadly this revolutionary 92 year old grandma died after shots from the man but she did put 3 of them into the hospital, which is saying something for someone born in 1914.

In other news the fact that there is no Thanksgiving seems to put Swedes & Americans at a lost.... why in the fuck would swedes celebrate thanksgiving here? why would swedes wonder when 'their' thanksgiving is? as i've stated before, repeatedly, i DO NOT celebrate it in the historical context but in the family, food, beer and football manner -- making it my all time second favorite holiday AFTER my birthday (which hopefully will go into world wide recognition by next year).

the "kramer" thing is a moot point to me, at this point, though one must wonder what in the flying fuck this dude was on to go on & on & on like that. Can't Truss 'Em (c) P.E.

While keeping abreast of the PS3 and Wii release this weekend, hey it's interesting and the PS3 won't be here till March (bastards). I came across a story about the first guy in line for the Wii in New York's Time Square who legally changed his name to Triforce. In the article the mentioned that he's 29 years old and I immediately pictures a white dude who lived with his mom (i'm saying where in the flying hell would a grown as man have freed money and time to pull off standing in line for a week to buy video games?) I also assumed, as most would, that the closest thing to sex he ever had was that banned part in GTA. I was wrong. Very wrong. Dude is black, married (lives in my beloved Harlem no less)and has traveled the globe playing video games. He has a gamer's collective called the Empire of Arcadia which in considered one of the best in the world AND MTV did a mini documentary on him and his collective.... Besides legally changing his name to Triforce (sorry but that's an L) I actually respect dude and apologize cyber-ly to him being the butt of my monday morning jokes along with THIS guy.

as my british coworker said: only in america

refusing to forget

my parents died on the 15th of November 1981 as a result of a car accident in which my brother and I were in. I wasn't hurt bad but my little brother, David, died from his injuries on the 25th of November. I was six. Instead of tell the whole drawn out story about how I never cried (because there was no one to cry to, at least that's the way I saw it at the time). I simply want to remember them... it gets harder and harder all the time. I remember when I felt this cold feeling when I realized that I couldn't remember my mom's voice anymore or my brother's. Contrary to popular belief I'm actually not as depressed as one would think about it, it's something that I've existed with all of my life so it's really not that strange but there are backlashes to it that pop up from time to time. I won't have them there for anything in my life from marriage to having a child. My future children won't have grandparents. I don't really have anyone to call and release to, in a real sense of the word, I kinda never let down my guard because of that. On the other hand I'll never have to worry about my parents growing old, having medical problems and eventually dying. The 15th of November is also the birthday of my 'little sister' Carla who was killed along with my best friend in 1999. I used to always tell her how much I hated her birthday... now I really do. I can remember her well though and it's easier to place pieces of her in my memory banks to save because I know what you forget. Anyway, I'm sitting here at work remembering them... like i said, i'm not depressed simply refusing to forget...

something that was stumbled across. Interesting, since all this madonna talk is going on right now.

Welp back to day 14 straight of work, my eyes hurt :-(

it's 7.42 in the am

and i'm sipping coffee and re-encoding (the second time thanks to issues with the program and intel macs) movies to watch on my psp on my way to work. I was looking throught the news and noticed that school shootings are back in vogue for crazy mofos which has always irked me because if your going to do some sort of crime don't you want it to be a your signature? of course i'm not saying go kill random school kids but to follow in any act is even more disturbing then just coming up with some crazy shit by yourself. regardless killing is wrong and if you feel that frustrated and depressed it is better to off yourself in creative ways then to force someone out of the game of life who wasn't planning on retiring.

it's been a long time (c) Rakim

my life is been crazy the last couple of months, a LOT of changes (some great, some..eh..well.. changes) and the overflow of info was kinda hard to type out since the confusion that surrounds that amount of change can be rather soul draining but i'm back... yeah, your saying "riiight" but really i'm back and typing from my malcolm x mackbook on the quietness that could only be a sunday morning with rain falling outside. i've been working long grueling hours lately and even plan to do so today, i can't really put my finger on where i've been all this time but this post was simply to hop back on the horse per se but i'll be back later....

Wikipedia-ish jokes?

And You're So Funny? Write My Script - New York Times

Video: Online Collaborative Comedy

don't quite know how well this is going to work out but i'm game and will follow dude's sites for about a week or so to see.

i've been watching mad documentaries lately: Unforgivable Blackness (the Jack Johnson story), Mark Twain and the Civil War -- kinda on a Ken Burn's thingy lately and all the happier about it.  between you and i, i'm beginning to think that wifey isn't as happy about having to sit though some of these (being that english isn't her first language and all and europeans lack context of any sort in these matters). we also watched the Their Eyes are Watching God in which they sucessfully ruined my all time favorite book... eff it i dont' even want to talk about it.

now to try and train myself to get up at 3am to watch the heat lose to the mavs, yeah i'm hating so what?



U.S. 1, ITALY 1: Short-handed U.S. slugs out draw vs. Italy

After hearing abnormal amoutn of shullbit about the US sucks from all manner of people I'm feeling kinda lovely right now with the tie last night though we were short changed in the people department thus bringing us to Ghana and a must win situation.

It's not like I know a damn thing about soccer or anything.

Nerd iddish but I'm saying Flock is the truth

TechCrunch » Blog Archive » Flock Raises New Venture Round, Launches Public Beta

had a bad dream and woke the hell up after 3 hours of sleep, very rare for me (dreams most would consider bad aren't even an issue to me).  So I'm wide awake and click on tailrank to see a post about Flock the new Mozilla based browsers (like firefox).  i downloaded an alpha version a while a go but it didn't have import features and fell off quickly, though it seemed a little faster than firefox, so FF won again.   This time everything and then more was there -- like the fact that i'm doing this blog via flock instead of having to sign into bloggeranyhoo, the suggestion is to try it out and see what you think about it.  At least i can update my blog more with this.

Other quick news items -- besides being in looooove with arielle (who is now a month old) it looks like i might have a decent job (which i find out tomorrow).  i went to london for an extended weekend and fell in love.  next stop paris or amsterdamn and i have a nice little list to work on.  maybe i'm tired now, more to come.  hopefully tomorrow brings great news, please.  did i mention my RE:Love with my PSP?

Sunday, June 11, 2006

okay, i fell off BUT

i've doing an abnormal amount of ish lately to which i owe my previously blog-nes-tivity at least a couple of posts to catch up with. I *heart* london btw.

more to come soon and i will rock out those posts this week.

this new phantom outkast song is killing me

i got an email this morning, very bright and early, saying "THE NEW OUTKAST SINGLE!!!" so i looked for the mp3 but nothing. this has been my obsession (along with a host of other people it seems). in case you didn't know it seems that v103.3 in ATL played it for their top 8 at 8 in all 8 spots last night. somehow, in 2006, NO ONE RIPPED, TAPED, MEMORIZED IT AND MIMICICED THEIR VOICES at all. so this song is now heading toward phantom stages and it's only been out for less that 24 hours. if you have it send it to me at LOQuent@gmail.com.

okay but to clicking refresh and rechecking tailrank, limewire and netnewswire...



got it last night from a bad quality radio rip. the song's name is "Mighty O". Dre ripped it, killed it even. I feel like it's '88 with a tape with the hissin'. all smiles. can't wait for the good quality version.

4:30 am: sun is shining each and everyday

you know how people wonder about how it is to have the sun pop up at abnormally early times? well sweden 'blessed' me with not having to wonder because that bamma pops up at abnormally early times which results in me waking up at painfully early times with no chance of returning to la la land. irritating.

fell asleep on the couch, again, but went to peek in on wifey -- i happen to enjoy watching her sleep she's so quiet... :-D anyhoo, peeked in and noticed that she's sleeping sideways in the bed. this is a problem for your truly since she has seemed to enjoy trespassing on my side of the bed since we got a new bed. this bed's predecessor was a small bed not made for a non vertically challenged man. i would get leg cramps on the ex-bed because i couldn't stretch out, not to mention it had some crap at the end so i couldn't even let my feet go over the edge. soooo, we buy a new bed only for wifey to decide that sleeping up and down wasn't for her and that sidways motion was were it's at. now when i'm in the bed i feel her *adjusting* herself until she's damn near kicking me off the bed. i'm thinking she's reliving her soccer glory days, but that's just me. this is not a good thing i've been considering an electric fence between us to correct this malfunction. we'll see.

my pistons lost last night to the bucks. we were nice enough to allow them a playoff win so they should be thankful.

welp back to God of War

as 30 leaves

my last hour in my 30th year. i've decided that from here on out i'll simply say '30+' cause i'm not feeling the 31. in fact, i'm pretty upset that for the first time in my life i'm not über amped about my birthday... oh well.

wifey's parents and nephew were here for east (since thursday to be exact) and left today. i swear her dad works more when he's here then at work and since he's not the "delegate" type person he ends up doing most of the work while he's here. now one could say that i'm the man of the apartment and all but i'm man enough to let another man do the job if he can do a better job. he built his whole house so i feel right to assume that he's the equivalent of a surgeon in these matters. regardless the balcony got a new floor, the bathroom a new light (i actually did a hefty amount on that one, which i'm rather proud of), the kitchen tiles were worked on etc. dude killed it. the nephew, as always, was the truth -- though he could work on him peeing aim game more than a little because a man should not have to use a whole bottle of ajax spray cleaner in a weekend. just saying.

oh, i'm pleasantly surprised with fishscale at the moment.

what's in the news? the guy in the proof death situation died, sad another life lost and they were both grown ass men in something so seemingly senseless.

tom cruise supposedly wants to eat a placenta with an umbilical desert... *dry heave*

i wonder if bush will ever let go of 'ol rummy..

eff it i have 30 mins and don't feel like seeing 30+ unless it's light outside.

RIP Proof

a swedish tabloid newspaper reports that Proof was the victim of Detroit's Hip Hop War... i sure do love that they have the inside scoop on shit that no one else has. it's a sad day when someone dies and it's simply an "intrigue piece".

i can think of better things to do with my money

this was a brand new powerbook and this dude ran over it, hit it with a sledgehammer and tried to blow it up-- his great news???

it still works...

though i must live by 'whatever floats your boat.." this would be a great argument for legalized prostitution.

dear white people,

i have locs and if the urge were to move you to want to tell me that i look like (fill in blank with random black guy with locs)________ don't...

last night i was told that i look like will.i.am of my number 1 most hated group of sell outs, the black eye pea-bitches.

so apple finally did it

they just released a patch so that windows can run on intel based macs. personally i don't have a problem with them running the obviously inferior windows OS but the problem i have is that it seems like it's supposed to be a selling point for people to buy macs. my personal assessment is that if you don't get it you just don't get it. apple is a business and improving on the bottom line is fine but why not try and strong arm the comp by taking some of their market share away by offering what they can't. eh, but that's just me and my opinion.

now if they could come out with the next gen ipod video so i can dream freely again.

the white stripes new video feat. conan o'brian

sometimes we sit around in the ldef office* here talking* about video treatments for certain songs. had we actually talked about a treatment for this song -- treatment being the "correct" term because of countless making the video viewing -- denial twist is actually cooler than what we* would have come up with.

*perception based interpretations

call me heathcliff bitch (c) Phonte

yesterday while testing my news cramming skills from my now 3 favorite sources (Google News, TailRank and NetNewsWire) I came across some quotes from 'ol Mr. Huxtable himself, Dr. Bill Cosby, in which he was talking to 2,000 New Orleans residents about rebuilding titled via Reuters Bill Cosby tells New Orleans black to reject crime.

now i'm all for free speech and stand whole heartedly behind people taking responsibility but DAAAAAM Cosby. it seems that his latest hobby is venom laced hatred to anyone who bootstraps haven't already been permanently attached to their upward mobile hands. it's a little too late to get full stop into this and this isn't a situation where i felt that he was pointing out something trivial minus tack. the problem that i've have ('specially since i grew up in middle class cosbyville) is statements without actions. sure he's put a shitload of black kids through college and spoonfed white america the concept that we all weren't good times'n it but somewhere in his old age he decided to stir the pot up to no avail. maybe it was his son's death or maybe after all of that work he feels that he won't see a change before his last breath... dunno but either way it's counterproductive and simply fueling the fox news crowd.

like i said it's a little late here and i've spent the day pulling myself up from my bootstraps (c) booker t. so i won't swear to a coherent content in this post but the shit really got under my skin.

anyhoo tomorrow is wifey's bday (to which she swears is horrible because she's getting sooo old) so grattis på din födelsedag min älskling :-D vi måste prata mer svenka!

and they're thinking about pressing charges? I guess we live in a batman world with joker villians.

Gnarls Barkley

it seems that they broke a record by being the first song to go number one, on british charts, from downloads only. besides the song being ill i guess that myspace marketing is starting to pay off guess j*davey should be more than ready right about now.

Birthdays are fun!!!

said my ever-so-perfect goddaughter when i called her with a congrads for reaching the almighty number 7. she went on to tell me that she wore her birthday hat to school :-D at 11.30 at night and über groggy my face lit up and she continued to tell me how she looooved birthdays etc. i'm still smiling.

Godfather update: rank - capo

My video game life of crime is starting to pay off and i'm getting more and more impressed with their well thought out storylines within this game. they stick to the movie's script but intelligently expand on things that are taken for granted in the movie. the theme song is stuck in my head in all it's variations.

she stopped paying her cable bill yay!

over the last 10 or so years i've become a bitter man because people are doing things that i was forced to do growing up.

your a vegetarian, wow!!! I didn't eat meat until i was 15. people couldn't pronounce the word back then and when you explained it they would would ask curiously stupid questions like: "soooo, what DO you eat?" *blank stare* now it's the Thing and vegetarians talk with faux self assuredness as to how much smarter they are and to think of all the cow families that are together because of them.

another one of many is not watching tv. i wasn't allowed to watch even the cosby show growing up though tv's where owned in the houses i lived. nothing. my great plan was to listen to the plots of shows in one class and respond in the next class. *sigh* well i was on tailrank and noticed this big deal (though i do respect it) of this lady deciding to turn off her cable bill.

I'm a made man!

nothing much going on here at the ldef office folks i'm hoping that today the true signs of spring can kick in and make my life a little warmer. my latest addictions have been daxter for psp which i'm entitled to state is the best game i've played on the psp. my other addiction(s) has been obsessively reorganizing my computer (my new desktop picture above) and playing the godfather (c) title. i've been approaching looking for a job in a more 'direct' way by calling up companies and telling the point blank that they need to hire me, i'll let you know how that comes out.

i went to see the swedish premire of inside man on monday night and officially flushed spike down the toilet. he needs to move to cananda or something to get his mojo back and the needless forcing of race related issues... meh.

god only knows (c) the Beach Boys

this song is my new obsession, along with netnewswire, thanks to big love which affirms my conviction that life as a pologimst is the farthest thing from dope. sopranos was ridic and yesterday i spent my free time in class preaching about born in brothels

born into brothels

this weekend i finally saw last year's docu oscar winner and was blown away, or should i say that something blew into my eyes along the way. those kids were some of the most photogenic kids i've ever seen and the way that they pulled you into the store was amazing. it's scary to know that there are kids, right now, living with so little options. *sigh*

i also saw the smartest guys in the room and the pure evil that greed breeds scared the shit out of me. it's hard to comprehend how people can't accept enough as enough. enron actual caused the cali blackouts of 2000? to make money? that's nightmarishly creepy.

short shorts

- i'm taking intensive swedish classes with chris

- i'm starting to shit swedish

- saw ess vee about 2 weeks ago, right after the funeral and they killed it. perfect breath control and they destroyed the audience

- it really needs to stop snowing

yesterday was apple's "big" announcement and if you've been a trusty reader of this here blahg then you'd know of the ldef's staff's full appreciate and cult like worship well yesterday they didn't really amaze many. they announced that there is a new intel based mac mini but it lacks a tv in (which allows you to record) and the price went up. that kills off the hope that the intel move would lower prices on mac machines and removes me from one who's going to spring for a mini to replace everything but the tv at the ldef headquarters... they also announcement an ipod hi fi ($349) which had me hit the snooze button not to mention a $99 leather ipod case i.e. fuck that. i my honest opinion they used up some of their wow capital in that boring announcement yesterday though i'd put money on 'BIG' changes for their april fools day 30th anniversary changes. i would like to see a full screen video ipod and cheaper intel based ibook.

in totally unrelated news i read touching this article on the last days of jay dee.

my power animal

does anyone know how to stop your power animal from eating up stuff in your dreams? i'm kinda tired of seeing bite marks in my dreams and little pieces floating around. also i think that my power animal has an overbite and if you know of a good power animal vet/dentist please refer me to them.

thank you.

the brokeback theory

brokeback mountain destroys the white male's last bastion of masculinity, the cowboy. if you were to ask any male over the age of 50 what picture pops up in his head as heterosexual masculinity at it's peak you'd hear things like john wanye and clint eastwood characters'. they'd tell you of watching some movie in the theater where the main characters rode off into the sunset with his trusted companion. with the introduction of brokeback mountain one can no longer assume that the hero cowboy and his companion's sunset trips to the wild, for months at a time, allot that they're only riding horses.

funny 'learn english' commercials

this and this one.

let me know what you think.

i was looking through my old blog

and came on this piece of ldef advice pre 2004 elections:

Thursday, 9 September 2004

I've decided to help Christan's out and hurry along the Second Coming. I mean, you've been going to church doing all this damn good but still no blazing trumpets and squashed evildoers. vote for Bush. He'll speed up the last days and take away all religious rights, basically any rights (for security reasons of course) enacting a worldwide government in which, according to Revelations, will bring about the end of the world the POW! your in heaven butt naked with a pet lion and gold sidewalks. damn I'm smart. VOTE for Bush!

btw God told me that, he tells me things all the time (football is his favorite sport btw) because he knows I will vote for bush.

your welcome

blue rose

today is vday in the ldef head office and i've sprung the high, high price of $2.95 for CNN's Pipeline. since we don't have CNN here i thought that it would be a helpful thing to be able to see live broadcasting and i'm quite happy about this choice. 'specially since menace to society dick cheney of the white house crips blastfest is a very great source of live feeds. they just announced that the 78 multimillionaire lawyer that got blasted had a heart attack... one of the doctors said that 'heart attack' is a 'lay man' term and this was what's called a soft heart attack" hammy. Dude even got irritated stating that he was smarter than everyone there and obviously couldn't handle the pressure of having the press ask him or his associate questions which annoy his smartnesstivity.

i really enjoy this.

Blastmaster Cheney

you've probably heard the staff here at ldef refer to vp dick cheney in various negative terms such as "satan". welp satan moved up in my book, just a little bit ahead of stalin, with the news reports of his shotgun action while "hunting" this weekend :-) dear readers it seems that satan reads this blog and took to heart the dueling post. keep up the good work cheney and somebody keep him armed please.
