Soundtrack 2 My Life

I've got some issues that nobody can see
And all of these emotions are pouring out of me
I bring them to the light for you
It's only right
This is the soundtrack to my life, the soundtrack to my life

Shorty I'm there for you anytime you need me
For real girl, it's me in your world, believe me
Nuttin make a man feel better than a woman
Queen with a crown that be down for whatever
There are few things that's forever, my lady
We can make war or make babies
Back when I was nothin
You made a brother feel like he was somethin
That's why I'm with you to this day boo no frontin
Even when the skies were gray
You would rub me on my back and say "Baby it'll be okay"
Now that's real to a brother like me baby
Never ever give my cootie away and keep it tight aight
And I'ma walk these dogs so we can live
In a fat ass crib with thousands of kids
Word life you don't need a ring to be my wife
Just be there for me and I'ma make sure we
Be livin in the effin lap of luxury
I'm realizing that you didn't have to funk wit me
But you did, now I'm going all out kid
And I got mad love to give, you my nigga

Chorus 2X

Interlude: Mary J. Blige

Like sweet morning dew
I took one look at you
And it was plain to see
You were my destiny
With you I'll spend my time
I'll dedicate my life
I'll sacrifice for you
Dedicate my life for you

Verse Two:

I got a love jones for your body and your skin tone
Five minutes alone I'm already on the bone
Plus I love the fact you got a mind of your own
No need to shop around you got the good stuff at home
Even if I'm locked up North you in the world
Wrapped in three-fourths of cloth never showin your stuff off, boo
It be true me for you that's how it is
I be your Noah, you be my Wiz
I'm your Mister, you my Mrs. with hugs and kisses
Valentine cards and birthday wishes? Please
Be on another level of planning, of understanding
the bond between man and woman, and child
The highest elevation, cuz we above
All that romance crap, just show your lo

What are your thoughts on this grammy award winning song by method man & mary j. blige?

I think that my boy Method Man exemplifies my feelings on what I look for in a relationship.

Specifically, she is reassuring through his tough times, knows she's beautiful but
doesn't flaunt herself for attention because she's secure with herself, and doesn't
but into society's view of what her man should do just because...they are on another level

Think about The Roots Grammy award winning track, "Baby Don't Worry."

If you want :)

Pop Culture

As most of you are aware, since October 1st, I have left the friendly confines of Arlington and have moved to Rockville with my friends Justin and Jen. (I'm currently playing the role of Dupree in this dramedy). So, after living with 3 other guys for the last 4 years, I feel I've been taken back in time to my Aeropostale-colored days of 2001-02, when A (squared) and I lived together in Oakton. Back then I was subjected to watching shows that ran the gamut from Yes Dear and King of Queens (which I ended up liking), to Three's Company and Animal Planet (which were OK), all the way to Lifetime hits like Strong Medicine and Any Day Now (which, given the option, make having hot candle wax poured on my nuts seem preferable by comparison).

Fortunately, Justin and Jen enjoy shows that are a bit more gripping, but they do require the viewer to keep up on a weekly basis. In 3 plus weeks, I have already watched a number of popular shows that I had never previously considered...such as! Prison Break, My Name is Earl, Desparate Housewives, The Office, Hero's, Nip/Tuck, and Grey's Anatomy. Some random thoughts/first impressions:

1. Grey's Anatomy sucks. The acting is bad, the story lines are unoriginal and uninspiring, and the female leads are in the category of good-looking but not quite bonafide

2. There is a character on Prison Break named "T-Bag." We all know what goes on in prison, do we need a character named T-Bag to remind us?

3. I like the fact that there's a character on The Office named Ryan Howard. Maybe Lost could add a character named Brian Westbrook or Andre Igoudala.

4. I wasn't impressed by Nip/Tuck, but I'll give it another chance since I caught it halfway in.

5. The Desperate Houswives women are strong to quite strong. Something about the possibility of hooking up with an older woman like Teri Hatcher seems infinitely more intriguing than hooking up with a much younger one like Mischa Barton. Maybe I have an older woman thing. I'd rank the DH girls like this - (Longoria, Hatcher, Sheridan, Cross, Huffman)

Hot New Track of the Week:

Duende (Lost in Robert Babicz Space Remix) – Martin Eyerer and Toni Rios - track 3 on Disc 2 of Sasha - Live at Avalon

Movie Quote Trivia:

*I know your works. You are neither cold nor hot. So because you are lukewarm, I will spew you out of my mouth. You can build your filthy world without me. I took the father. Now I'll take the son. You tell young Vallon I'm gonna paint Paradise Square with his blood. Two coats. I'll festoon my bedchamber with his guts. As for you, Mr. Tammany-fucking-Hall, you come down to the Points again, and you'll be dispatched by my own hand. Get back to your celebration and let me eat in peace.


Lastly, but certaintly not least, I want to wish my close friend Quincy Conner a happy 29th Birthday. I know you're enjoying it right now. See you in the next life brother.

1996-2006 & Beyond

First the fat boys break up, now I've been out of high school for 10 1/2 years - what's next? Quite a scene/show/celebration for the Woodbridge Senior High School class of 1996 on Saturday night. For me, the 6+ hours of partying mirrored my 4 years of high school: Quite a bit of fun, new memories, a late night, unnecessary drama, and of course, a handful of people who drank much more than their bodies are capable of handling. Anyway, reflecting back on the last decade brought to mind one of the more intriguing philosophies out there:

Nihilism is a philosophical position, often associated with Friedrich Nietzsche, which argues that the world, and especially past and current human existence, is without objective meaning, purpose, comprehensible truth, or essential value. Nihilists generally assert some or all of the following: there is no reasonable proof of the existence of a higher ruler or creator, a "true morality" is unknown, and secular ethics are impossible; therefore, life has no truth, and no action is known to be preferable to any other.

I concluded, this may be true or not true, but while I try to figure it out over the next 10 years, why not have some fun and leave a legacy behind that I can be proud of.

Couldn't Pass it Up

Caught this book cover in Barnes and Noble today at lunch. Get funnier.

Also, anytime I see an article on espn.com about JMU-related content I have to peep it. This article is a great story about Mickey Matthew's son Clayton, who was always hanging around practice when I played there back in 1999 and 2000.

Thought Jason Whitlock made some fantastic points in this interview, and he made fun of Scoop Jackson, which is a bonus.

Shout Out

McAdams, Hunter, Morey. All pretty cool Rachel's. Today happens to be my sister Rachel's 26th birthday, and I'm sure she's gonna be celebrating in true Wisconsin fashion (whatever that means). She's come a long way from the days of not being able to pronounce her "R's" and having a problem with spilling any drink handed to her, from chocolate milk to vodka tonics. I gave up keeping a running spill tally - last I checked it was in the 25,000 spill range. Anyway, I'll be out there the weekend of October 6th and 7th for a belated party, where hopefully she'll have some friendly girls ready to hangout on State Street. In the mean time, Happy Bday!

As a bonus trivia question, somebody please name the guy passed out in the picture from this episode of Seinfeld.
