NEW MUSIC: Sleigh Bells x DRAG

As a student of Music, listening to Sleigh Bells I was blown away. 
Their mixes of House (Club), Hip-Hop, and Pop are amazing. I
noticed a few of their songs had spaces with no vocals on them. I
thought of the idea on Thursday and finished the EP on Sunday night.
Thank You to Sleigh Bells and artists like them that continue to push
the envelope and create great music.

UnderCovers -- Cancelled

Boris Kodjoe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw starred in the NBC spy drama UnderCovers. The story line was ok, but the dialogue was pretty bad and Hoyt the assistant tech nerd was very annoying. The show could have had a chance simply if it were better. I think the creator J.J. Abrams (of LOST, ALIAS, Cloverfield and Star Trek fame) was just banking on Black people being happy about a Black Spy show. Such was not the case. NBC isn't really the right channel for that sort of thing either so that was against them as well. If on the CW, or even FOX I think the show would have stood a better chance. The show was cancelled so they say because they weren't getting enough young viewers. I just don't think it caught peoples attention's after they saw the first two episodes. It was kinda crappy. Make a better show, get better ratings (not always true!)

Honey Battered Breast Tenders from Tyson are GOOD!! No sauce or ketchup needed. That's all!



TV Show: The Walking Dead

AMC is kicking ass in original TV series' at the moment. The Walking Dead opened with a great 1st episode. A Sheriff of a town in Georgia gets shot by fleeing criminals and taken to the hospital where he falls into a coma, only to wake up in a world over run with ZOMBIES!! I love a good Zombie feature so I'm pretty much all for this show to be great. The show gets to key points pretty quickly and doesn't drag things out of a season or 6 episodes down the line. A few things have sorta confused me through the first 3 episodes.

Spoiler Alert!!!

If wild escaping Hicks are shooting at you and you get shot, why would you take your vest off?? (In fact in most movies when people get shot why do they take of their vest right after??)

It was never fully explained how long he was in a coma in the hospital. Additionally, Zombies got into the hospital so why didn't they kill him?

When these guys put the guts on them to blend would just so happen to pour down raining right?

Why did the Deputy Sheriff have to disarm the car alarm. Wouldn't the Sheriff had thought to do that??

Why have so many changes of heart about a guy that was about to kill everybody??
Funny how the dude knocks over the tool bag and drops the handcuff key down this mysterious drain pipe in one graceful dumbass fall. But the guy can now reach the hacksaw and cuts his hand off??!! But it was only one way off the roof, so how did he actually get away??


With all that being said it is a pretty decent show. I just hope that it becomes a bit more complex as the show develops.



New Music: Baltimore Beat Bangers Vol.1

Imahj of Wisdom Court Ent.

This CD showcases Imahj, Banga Bill, Ms. Tris Beats, Street Scott, Skarr Akbar and more. Imahj tagged all the beats pretty perfectly to the point where its not annoying and you can still hear the beat. A little birdie told me part 2 is on the way.

Due Date

From the same Director that made The Hangover, here comes Due Date. Basically its some crap. The funniest moments are in the trailer. Every other moment in this film is not even smile worthy. Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galafianakis play passengers going cross country that get kicked off a plane. So due to happenstance they travel together cross country and silliness ensues. Its definitely a rent it movie. The director said he wanted to make a more mature comedy than The Hangover, but this just wasn't funny at all.

Julian's Recipe Waffles

Awwww mannnnn. These waffles are crazy good. They are more like dessert than they are breakfast but they taste great. Pearl sugar adds a texture to the dough that is just great. No butter or syrup needed. The only place I've seen them is Whole Foods.

Rise and Fall of Allen Iverson

I would say that no other Basketball player has had a bigger impact on culture then Allen Iverson. No not even Jordan. Jordan was the greatest player but you couldn't really relate to him. Allen Iverson is the reason everybody is tattooed up. Allen Iverson was the reason guys had cornrows. He changed the style of the black youth in America. He was a good player with great drive and passion. So its sad to see him playing in Turkey for 2 years for 4 million knowing that he lost millions of dollars and a chance to play in the NBA. Stefan Marbury is a nutcase and I could care less about him having to play overseas. But AI...The Answer!! Man this one is pretty sad.

Crossover Waved Away Picks



This was a fun movie. Bruce Willis plays a retired CIA agent who is trying to hit on the woman that processes his retirement check every month. Unfortunately ( or fortunately however you want to look at it) a job in the past is coming back to haunt him and a few friends from the 80's. Morgan Freeman and John Malkovich join the fun. This is a comedic, chase, whodoneit, ex-spy film. It was good. I can't remember why it was good but it was.

Chuck Norris Knows

Chuck Norris is the man. And for whatever reason he is more popular than ever these days. He is in a series of T-Mobile commercials from the Czech Republic. This is the funniest one.
