Yeah, the highly anticipated, the myth, the legend, THE BLUEPRINT 3 is on the way!  Rumours first surfaced that Timbaland was going to be producing the whole cd.  Well, it turns out that those rumours were false, thank God.

Mixtape DJ MickBoogie reported that….

While the streets are abuzz with Kanye’s video leak of the “Jockin Jay-Z” intro… Press Play, Fashion Forward has some more information for you on this highly anticipated, top-secret project.

+ Kanye will indeed be producing most, if not all, of the album. Remember back in the day when an artist would do a whole album with one producer for cohesiveness? Think classic Snoop or Jeru with Primo… and fast forward it to 2008.

+ Jay will be leaking the finished version of “Jockin” as soon as he adds a new 3rd verse to the song.

+ Tracks to look for include the aforementioned “Jockin’ Jay-Z” and a new track entitled “Victory” that the rumor mill says is simply amazing.

I can’t wait for this shit to drop!  Check the video below for the first live snippet of the track “Jockin”, performed when Kanye brought Jay out at the Madison Square Garden.

Wipedout

August 9, 2008 by

These past few months I had been keeping up on a couple TV shows called Wipeout and I Survived A Japanese Gameshow.  To make a long story short, these programs aren’t what I expected at first.  I really didn’t know what Wipeout was about really, but after the first episode, I was hooked.  If you’ve seen Most Extreme Challenge and Ninja Warrior, that’s what this show is sort’ve about.  The first 40 minutes, hilarious.  Then the real games begin as the people left on the show must compete on a seriously challenging course.  Winner gets a cool $50K.

I Survived a blah-blah isn’t what I expected.  I wanted those crazy Japanese shows I see on G4 and YouTube with insanity galore.  Did I get that?  Partially.  There was major drama involved.  It’s a known fact I’m pretty biased against reality TV.  I’m very picky.  There needs to be a point or some real reason why I’m watching the show.  Are they hunting ghosts?  Are they busting myths?  Are they building someone a brand new house?  (Okay, that was only one time.)  But I like watching real people do things because they love doing them, not for the love of money as a reward, and I don’t want to be involved in their lives.  THAT’S what this show was doing.  I spotted it as soon as the intro came on and showed the “stars” of the show.  I watched for a few weeks before I lost complete interest.  I don’t need another elimination show to keep track of.  Actually, I don’t keep track of any of them.  Sorry, it’s not for me.  Maybe because I’m a writer?  I like scripts.  Unless it’s improv.  That’s different.  Whose Line is it Anyway? anyone?

Overall, I hope to see Wipeout return next summer.  The big thing about that show is the big balls.  Last I checked, they streamline the show on Hulu.com.  Anyway, according to my Entertainment Weeklys, this show stayed on the 10 most watched show of the week for the past few weeks.  So that’s saying something.  It gave me something to do on boring Tuesday nights with no hot dates.  Watch tons of people bounce on big red balls, get punched by a wall, and fall in thick mud and muddy water.  Good times indeed!

Sup!

It’s been a long time, I shouldn’t of left you, without a cool song to listen to(corny)! First off lets song with a song. After like three minutes, for some reason theres a techno mix or some dumb shit like that, so just turn it off after like 3:15.

The Stone Roses – I Am The Resurrection

As you all might know, I am a huge fan of Oasis. I recently got a hold of the cover of their new album Dig Out Your Soul set to release in October.

Jesus just saved your life……..

Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop

August 7, 2008 by

Okay…

First off, I want to apologize for the long hiatus once again.  This thing has been dead for a minute now due to my lack of motivation to update or make any new posts.  But it’s whatever, I promise we are back and stronger than ever.  A lot has happened since I last posted…. turning 22, Coldplay concert etc.  I want to give a shout out to all the wolves.  Make sure you got your cash right for the Wolves hats that should hopefully be coming in this weekend.  Let’s bring this joint back to a grandiose juncture, ya dig!

So, California street wear/lifestyle brand The Hundreds just released their 2008 Fall look book, and I must say it looks very promising.  I’m definitely looking forward to copping some new threads from them.  Peep some of the standout joints from it below.  Holler!

Movie of the Moment: This Film Is Not Yet Rated

July 19, 2008 by

This time around, I’m going to let YouTube do most of the talking.  I saw this movie about a month ago and I haven’t foggiest why I haven’t made this a movie of the moment.  Future filmmakers and movie watchers take notice, this one’s for you.

But that’s not all… someone took one of the beginning clips of the movie and posted that too.  It’s a real attention grabber to something you sort’ve already knew about.

What this documentary is out to prove is that the MPAA is biased against independent films and sex scenes in films with many examples.  It really makes you think about why a movie is rated the way it was and what were they thinking at the time…  And some movies you wonder how it slipped by the radar (Monster’s Ball anyone???). 

Unfortunately, the only way I’m aware that you can see this movie is through Netflix.  If it’s for sale, it’s definitely one I’d buy.  You best believe it’s not for the kiddies or faint of heart.  There’s lots of nudity and dirty language galore, but its hilarious at the same time.  So if you have Netflix, put that on the list.  In the meantime, I found that someone uploaded the movie on YouTube in 10 parts, about 10 minutes each.  So go education and entertain yourself if you don’t have Netflix.

Wiffle Battle? Really??

July 16, 2008 by

In case you haven’t heard, there’s a whole neighborhood battle going on in Greenwich, CT.  Not gangs or guns or drugs or prostitution or dance crews, nope, this is a battle over wiffle ball.  Wiffle.  Ball.

More specifically, there was an empty lot that some neighborhood kids decided to convert into a wiffle ball field where the local youth could come play a random game with the plastic toys.  But this caused a problem to the local townsfolk that live in that neighborhood who angrily declare “Not in my backyard!”  Which actually isn’t due to zoning laws.  And that’s one of the issues that the locals are using against these teens.

I can’t believe they are complaining against this when there are far more worse things these kids could be doing.  Gangs, drugs, prostitution, dance crews… you name it!  Granted, this is in the middle of Suburbia, White USA, but still…  And if you wanna get into a land discussion…  If it’s not being used, why complain?  Build a house or a small shack to house… I dunno… fireworks.  Yeah, that makes just about as much sense, right?

Obviously you can tell whose side I’m on.  I wouldn’t have brought it up…  But I heard this has made NATIONAL headlines.  Really?  People in L.A. know what’s going on in our tiny state?  I also wonder if this would make ANY news at all if this happened in like… Bridgeport, New Haven, or maybe Madison, Meriden, Middletown, or, dare I say it, Sterling, CT?  I’m just saying.  This state isn’t having a good rep lately…  Just a few weeks ago we had that now infamous hit-and-run caught on CCTV in Hartford.  How’s that coming along, by the way?  On the subject of cameras, briefly, to the crooks and criminal present and future: stop it.  The first 5 minutes of the news feature pictures of robbers caught on tape, some captured, some will be tomorrow.  C’mon now, it’s 2008.  Let’s get it together and play wiffle ball!

Not really impressive for the most part.  The black/blue and purple/yellow low tops look kind of promising.

Cath

July 14, 2008 by

“And soon everybody will ask what became of you,

because your heart was dying fast,

and you didn’t know what to do”

MTV.com recently premiered Death Cab For Cutie’s new video for “Cath”.  Great song, great video.  Peep it.

War @ Home

July 10, 2008 by

I always wondered what it would be like to have a roommate.  Just hanging out, drinking, parties; living the free and independent life always seemed so appealing to me, but then I realized that people and their personalities clash.  There are things that you may do that are completely normal to you, but might annoy the crap out of someone else.  Here is a typical example… where one roommate inconsiderately slams the door shut every morning on his way to class.  Well, this is what happens when the other roommate decides to get them back lol.  Butter+Floor=Hilarious.

It’s Coming…

July 8, 2008 by

Yeah the Wolfpack fitted caps are officially on the way.  I was told to expect them to arrive on the 8th of August.  My homey Jason, from Pegasus in Harlem, hit me up with the blueprints of what the actual hat will look like.  Peep em’ below.  Notice how the colorway is Duck Black?  Yeah they are made of a special material (Duck), kind of like canvas, that does not fray as much as regular wool.

Anyone who is interested in copping one, just let me know what your hat size is and of course I’ll need cash.  They will probably be $35.  It’s a first come, first serve basis, because as you know when the sizes are gone that will be it.  So, just hit me up.

Bad News, Good News, Hulu

July 3, 2008 by

I always like to hear the bad news first to get it out of the way, then the good news.  Sometimes it doesn’t always work out because chronolically, it might not matter.  For example:  Bad news–your car exploded today.  Good news–you just got great detail work on it yesterday.  Sucks, huh? 

Anyway, the bad news I didn’t want to dwell on because that stuff will only get you depressed the more you read, listen, watch and think about it UNLESS you are doing something about it.  Unfortunately, the things that have been done (12-year-old girl found dead in Vermont, ignored woman dies in hospital waiting room) you can’t change but can only hope and pray it doesn’t happen again. 

As for good news, a murder has been caught in Illinois. (By the way, the “s” is silent… sorry, just a pet peeve.  And so is the last “s” in Arkansas.) The murder killed about 8 people… some with an axe.  The sex offender who kidnapped the 12-year-old girl is also in custody.  I’m emotionally affected by these crimes because some of my best friends have been molested.  However, I can’t say if I think the death penalty is fitting.  Maybe life in prison would be better.  Let the fathers in jail have their way with the offender.  But the fact one more is in jail is good news.  The big breaking story on CNN at the moment is 15 hostaged were rescued from a rebel group in Columbia, 3 of which are American.  The shocking part is they had been hostages for 5 years or more. 

There’s political news too, but I’ve had my fill and have been taking the week off.  Plus I don’t want to be another blogger yappin’ my fingers off about what some other blogger said or saying something that’s been said already.  I will say that I think it’s silly about the fuss people make about lapel flag pins and patriotism.

The big thing right now that I’m excited about has been out for a while now…  But sometimes, I’m a little slow.  Hulu.com is something amazing.  I think of it as a cross breed hybrid of YouTube and Netflix (instant watch).  High quality video of some of your favorite TV shows and a decent collection of movies.  No membership required!  Just look for something you want to watch, and hit play.  What I like about this site is it’s abundance of SNL clips.  NBC.com edits them down.  Here, you get the whole thing sketch.  They have the full screen feature, and if you don’t want that, they have an awesome “turn the lights down” feature.  It’s nothing big, but I found it cool.  I haven’t watched any of the movies yet, but soon enough.

I don’t have a Movie of the Moment right now.  If I were to pick one, it’d be Gone Baby Gone due to the Vermont story I spoke of earlier.  Not a movie for happy times, but Michelle Monaghan is hot.  You’ve seen her also in Mission Impossible: III, The Heartbreak Kid.  She looks like Liv Tyler.  But I just have a thing for brunettes and light eyes.  Look her up.

Faggots

July 2, 2008 by

This tasty dish which seems to be some kind of TV dinner created by a guy named Mr. Brain from Great Britain. I guess the creator is going throughout Britain promoting his dish. Since the Doody family, also from Great Britain, won a statewide competition which I believe consisted of who can eat the most faggots, they have become the spokespeople for this product.

This is what the 14 year old son said when asked about how he felt about being a spokeperson for Mr Brain’s Faggots:

“When young Lewis, the Doody’s 14-year-old son, was asked what he thought about being a spokesperson for faggots he replied, “I can’t wait for school to start again so I can tell all my friends about the great taste. My friends will love faggots!”

I cant even make that shit up. There’s the link to the story.

I think this is what Killa Cam would say about it:

“Wild Homo.”
