Icons & Influences: Ol' Dirty Bastard

Man, I can't even imagine how life would've been had I not discovered the natural beauty that is Ol' Dirty Bastard. This man was one of the most gifted and supernatural human beings on the planet. Quite possibly my favorite individual, next to Dilla.
Enjoy this final documentary that captures the true essence of Russell Jones (ODB) called, "Dirty Minded":

RIP - Russell Jones. You will INDEED be missed.

Birfday Celebration.

So, my lovely lady Sheree stealthly hooked up this surprise BBQ/Party on Morningside for me - decked out with beers and blunts and all of the cool kids that I could've ever wanted to be there. Danny and Shanae were the first people there (lol - that's how she got me - "look! who's that?") and then more people came as time rolled on.

Frank came, (dammit - some asshole stole his camera before the night was over, which was NOT cool - I hate that we all can't have a good time without so shady shit goin down) Sciryl and Charles Hamilton were there (always a good look), Xiara & Bella came (awwww - Bella can be so bad but so cute), Liz, Shannon (hadn't seen her in 4ever it seemed), Kels, Brian, Dep, Z, Lauren, Isaac, Ingrid and a whole slew of other people I might not have known but was in someway cool with.

Overall, yesterday was a fun and exciting surprise. I rarely got suprise birthdays when I was a kid, and I had already told myself that I was over the bar for those. My Ree-Ree came through though, and made it all work out so well. She's amazing, and I'm soooo happy to have her in my life.

I have to give myself at least a week to recover from all the brain cells I've lost over the weekend. I'm running late for work. I'll get up with yall soon.

News Disasters.

My new craze has defintely gotta be viral-videos of real life things, not your stupid re-made version of "Friends" or your friend Shameika singing "Lollipop" while shaking her 'web-cam ready' ass. My first craze installment is newscaster bloopers, blunders and slip-ups. I adore the fact that we rely on a "live-feed" source of news and I love it even more when that system is put into a tense and unnerving moment when something goes wrong during a live performance. Here are a few of my faves:

And this guy is my favorite guy, ever.

Mission Objective

This song takes me back further than it needs to.
This is my own personal time capsule. Enjoy it.
