Go Lakers, get garnett

I was not going to post this post cuz I figured everyone who read the post below would head straight to the site, but hopefully by me posting this maybe somehow the trade will happen. Kinda like that saying, if you will it it will come, or something like that.

Kevin Garnett STILL not traded

The minnesota timberwolves still have not been able to get rid of garnett, and I say get rid of because even though garnett is probably their best player (my opinion) the management really wants jeferson from the celtics instead of kevin. I think its ludicrous that this is still going on, I've been hearing from friends that kevin was now a pheonix sun, this news just throws my whole day off.

If kevin gets signed to the Lakers that would be SOOOOOO AWESOME though.

Funny Garnett picture from, go lakers.

Future of RPGs on 360

I have an appreciation for japanese artwork in different forms, may it be manga books, anime movies, or toys. But one thing that I have enjoyed over all of them are Japanese RPG games such as the final fantasy series and such. I love the stories told through this medium and the emotion they bring out of the player, so being a new xbox fan I have starved for a long time for a good RPG, that will all end at the end of the year. Even if you don't keep up with video games, you should at least know that by the end of the year 2007 halo 3 is coming out and so is GTA IV, but thats not all. Final fantasy creator and the Dragon ball series creator are coming together to release a english version of their smash game Blue Dragon game to north america, so I'm excited. Also eternal sonata and lost odyssey coming out this year, so there's a lot coming out to look forward to. Check out the link below for some 360 edumacation.

Crooks still doin it

I haven't been keeping up with a lot of the street wear scene for some time, too long in my opnion. But I noticed some of what crooks have been putting out, including the crooks vs knowledge watch collabo, and the tee they have out in the in4mants store, ridiculous. I definetely need that watch, just which it came out in gold, and not just platinum.


Jay being exposed

Calvin Klein Bacote, an OG from Brooklyn did an interview with the Drama king Kay Slay and Angie Martinez about Jay-Z's past life and how he was less of a gangsta turned rapper and more of a rapper living out the life of a real gangsta (in this case being that of the young calvin). Jay even referenced calvin in the song allure off the black album, when he raps "I never felt more alive/ Than ridin' shotgun in Klein's green five." Calvin talks about how jay ignored him once he was released from a 14 year bid in jail, and has done the same financially to the people around him (such as dame dash, ta-ta, beanie, Jaz-O etc), calvin claims he's just here to let people know who the real Jay-Z is. If you haven't heard the audio yet, you need to.

The Golden Compass (trailer)

The Golden Compass is a forthcoming film based upon the first novel in Philip Pullman's trilogy His Dark Materials, slated for release on December 7 2007 by New Line Cinema.[1] The story tells of Lyra's adventure to the far north in search of her friend. The movie title reflects the North American title of the novel The Golden Compass, known originally in the UK as Northern Lights. The project was announced in February 2002, following the success of other recent adaptations of fantasy epics, and at $150 million is expected to be New Line's biggest budget project ever after a series of box office disappointments in the past year

Daniel Craig just can't stop getting new work can he, he's in not one but two movies coming out this year. Well I guess playing bond comes with some perks.

Get Smart (trailer)

Maxwell Smart (Steve Carell) is on a mission to thwart the latest plot for world domination by the evil crime syndicate known as KAOS. When the headquarters of U.S. spy agency Control is attacked and the identities of its agents compromised, the Chief (Alan Arkin) has no choice but to promote his ever-eager analyst Maxwell Smart, who has always dreamt of working in the field alongside stalwart superstar Agent 23 (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson). Smart is partnered instead with the only other agent whose identity has not been compromised: the lovely-but-lethal veteran Agent 99 (Anne Hathaway). As Smart and 99 get closer to unraveling KAOS’ master plan—and each other—they discover that key KAOS operative Siegfried (Terence Stamp) and his sidekick Shtarker (Kenneth Davitian) are scheming to cash in with their network of terror. Given little field experience and even less time, Smart—armed with nothing but a few spy-tech gadgets and his unbridled enthusiasm—must defeat KAOS if he is to save the day.

Steve carrell = good movie

Streets is Watching

Nowadays jays rhymes are more about the things money can buy and the lifestyle he enjoys, but earlier in his career you could hear how hungry he was for the paper and how relentless he was as a lyricist. Streets is watching off his in my lifetime vol 1 album (which I liked better than the first) is definetely a classic track.

Jay Z the rapper, the entrepreneur, the icon.

NBA 2k7

For those that do not have an Xbox maybe you should just skip this post all together but for those who own an xbox and having played or own and played NBA 2k7 you know how addicting this game can be. It has been in my xbox for as much time as all my other 9 games combined, maybe even more. The point is I like the game, and I have dedicated myself to playing the online mode until I become the #1 ranked player in the world. As of now I'm the 25th best (out of like 3000+ to put it in persepective). I just finished a 10-0 run, feeling unstoppable, so I challenged a rank 7 player and got demolished. I used the Cleveland Cavs and got my ass whooped by the Lakers. At the end of the game I was only down 10 points but this rank 7 guy played like a freaking machine, not making one mistake, and totally leaving me in awe of how focused a person can be playing a videogame. I mean, I wouldn't even be typing this post if not for how good this dude was... Anyway I gotta get better, so If I do break the top 10 I'll keep you posted.

Oh and If you play on xbox live and wanna challenge me let me know what games you have, and get ready to get BEAT, just kidding, but not really.

Lil Wayne (Live In B-More)

This guy is on top of the world and to think that he will not be releasing his new album this year just shows how cocky he is about his new found standing as one of the most admired rappers (if not the best in the game) out right now. I like the concert vid shown above I even like the mixing in of tracks off his albums, but the freestyle at the end makes the whole vid worth it. Lil wayne is on fire.
