the shuffle. [9/23/06]

Trying to do 2 things at once is bad enough... try being a writer, a father, an employee and a regular dude at one time. Shit's kind of crazy. Add a twist of Heineken, and it's a bit worse! In any case, big tings are going on around here... I just have to get off my ass and "git R done!" Soon enough...

Today is the first day of Autumn... I am working on a mix to compliment the return of Autumn. Watch this space...

I've been having a crazy week... getting used to the little man and all. I am trying to juggle, y'all. I have some mixes coming, some interviews coming, a whole gang of shit on the horizon. Hopefully, we can get this rock the dub thang moving strong. Soon come, as per usual...

Oh, and I HAVE to big up XXL on their new DVD, which I watched last night and today and absolutely LOVE. I don't get into the "hood DVDs" too much, but what I've seen on YouTube and other places do not compare to the slick design of this one right here. From watching Raekwon smoke that L right on the charter bus to seeing 50 act like a fruitcake, talking about how he pondered the looks of "Hot" Rod before meeting him, to Fat Joe and TV Johnny dicing it up, that shit was official.

In any case, lets' get on to this shuffle thing of ours...

01/In the Not Shocked file for this week, Willie Nelson got busted for drug possession, and pics of the stash have hit the 'Net. He has under a pound of 'shrooms, and a pound of herb. At 73, you'd think his old ass would be slowing down. He's going to catch a heart attack in the next 5 years, watch.

02/Speaking of fucked up celebs, Lindsay Lohan fractured her wrist earlier this week. It sounds like homegirl is wigging out. The site reported that Lindsay was seen beefing with her mom's, then stormed out, leaving her mom to play Lindsay and do dumb shit like throw fortune cookies at people and not leave a tip. I guess some people aren't cut for Hollywood.

03/Keeping it Hollywood for a mite, the rumor going around is that Brad Pitt is replacing Tom Cruise in the next installment of the Mission Impossible movies. I never watched a second of any of the shits, but they say that Tom's character is to just be an afterthought, and Pitt is to play some new cat. After watching Brad do the spy shit in Mr. & Mrs. Jones, I'd prefer him than goofy ass Scientologist Tom.

04/With the monetary success of flicks like The Passion of The Christ and Chronicles of Narnia, Fox has set up a new division to produce and distro religious flicks. The interesting part of this FoxFaith venture is that they plan on putting out this flick I heard about a bit ago, where Christ is portrayed as a Black man. "Colors of The Cross" suggests that Jesus died not for what he was trying to do to the population at large, but because he was a nigga. I don't think this is documented anywhere but in the minds of shiftless Negroes, but it's an interesting idea. I mean I've never heard anyone say that just because Christ is depicted as a black man in the Bible that everyone else was white... how does that work, exactly? I mean, based on the makeup of people in Iraq and the Middle East, where the original Bible times geographically took place, those peoples are of color... where does the white man fit in? Ponder that one...

05/Spaceballs is one of my most favorite guilty pleasures. A send-up on all things scifi, Mel Brooks created a masterpiece of malarky. Now, he is bringing this model to the G4 network as a cartoon, lampooning current events and even more pop culture. I'm not sure if I get that channel, but I need to make it a part of my life. Or just grab the torrents...

06/In the UK, the MOBO (Music of Black Origin) Awards ceremony took place... and Jay-Z won an award, for "Best International Male". What the fuck kind of category is that for a music awards show? I don't know, I applaud the UK heads for thinking of Black people and giving us our own awards show over there, but it sounds like any old hodge podge show, whether it's the BET Awards or the Vibe Awards. They are all wannabe's and knockoffs, and lack the power and drive to truly fill the void left by popular (White) media. Maybe I need to come up with my own awards show?

07/Back in the states, Oscar-winning crew Three 6 Mafia is the latest batch of coons to get their own reality TV show. These niggas are trying to establish themselves as "Hollywood players", which can either mean they want to get more Hollywood $$ or more Hollywood pussy. The fact that Asthon Kutcher is producing this is kind of odd, but I guess money talks and Bobby Brown walks.

08/I don't know if you guys have ever asked this question yourselves, but someone had the audacity to throw this up on Yahoo: are animals gay... the answer? Possibly! Word is, there's two Brokeback penguins who fuck each other and ignore the females. I honestly never thought of animals as being gay, but you know, that's some interesting shit. Sort of. I wonder which guys have to sit there and study these gay animals. Like, is that a course of action the heads of the department seriously ponder over? And how does one get funding to research penguins who dig in each other's boootyhole? No WONDER there's no cure for cancer! Too fucking preoccupied of Moe and Joe Monkey are an item.

09/The most disgusting story of the past week is contained right here... apparently, this unfit mother went out one night, got toasted on gin, then went to the shelter she lived at with her 3 month old seed, threw up 6 inches of vomit in a bucket, and passed out... only to awaken to her child having drowned in the bucket. She should be made to swim in a vat of bile and Seagram's, fucking bitch. Get a hold of yourself. Hopefully she changes her life around in jail. Oh, and before I end this item, how the FUCK did she throw up that much vomit to drown a child? Is that even possible?

10/Is Clay Aiken really gay or just tired of people bashing him? This week, he spoke with Dianne Sawyer, and it was reported that he basically says "I am not gay", but there's another story with him on the back pedal, giving the timeless comment of "you bitches don't even need to know who I fuck", which is respectable, but does not lessen the cloud of suspicion over him. My thing is, the accuser, who's blog is suspiciously amended by now, said Clay fucked him raw in the asshole for 90 minutes. What? Was he on E? What man has 90 minute anal sex with ANYONE?!!?? How do you let something penetrate your ass for 90 minutes straight?

11/How in the FUCK does punk as Aaron "Mom and Dad, they be gettin' on my nerves" Carter get to marry THIS FINE ASS CHICK!? Is he that paid off that bullshit "career" of his?

12/This was an interesting week for Hip-Hop interviews... Ras Kass discusses his altercation with The Game for XXL, and The Game breaks bread over at All Hip-Hop about the same altercation and his new album; Talib Kweli mixes it up about his past career, present standing, and future aspirations over at All Hip-Hop (parts 1 and 2); DJ Shadow speaks on The Outsider, trying to convince the masses that it is not a big piece of shit, too.

13/Hip-Hop also had some odd moves and shakes this week, all starting off with Onyx's Fredro Starr (AKA Malachi from Save The Last Dance) trying to strike it rich, twice, with his new group, "Yung Onyx"... nigga, please! "Your time has come..." A prosectuor in Detroit says that Proof only pulled his piece because the bouncer squeezed off a warning shot himself; hell, he just got picked up on weapon's charges! I mean, if someone is shooting at you, what the fuck do you expect them to do, lay down? Nah, not if you yourself are strapped. Think about it for a bit. Speaking of Detroit, Eminem is hard at work on his "official mixtape" which went from being a regular hood thing to this big retail extravaganza. No one wanted that, they wanted Eminem going back to 97 and spitting that raw. I can't hate on him for trying to make more corporate bread, but maybe that divorce shit has his mind taken over. I mean, he now has a mediator to help Kim and himself chop that shit up, for good or ill. On the White boy tip, 'Wierd Al' jacked Chamillionaire's steeze and created "White & Nerdy"... classic! For some grimey, real shit, the Clipse's album got pushed back another month, and those niggas ain't happy! Anytime you talk about lynching your whole label, you need to just be able to do your own shit. Jive is going to feel real dumb when Clipse do their numbers, esp. with the Neptunes behind the boards. And for those who want to know, Chuck D kicks the ballistics on DRM files and policy. Nice to have him in our corner, somewhat. And on a dope note, the guys over at A Salute To Weed Carriers have got their antics in print! Big up to them!

14/Did you realize schools in the US are cutting back on recess? How the fuck do you expect kids to stay awake for the 2nd half of the day if they don't get a break? I had recess all through elementary school, and I did fairly well in my studies back then. When I had no recess? I actually did a bit worse... now, they only get like 20 minutes for lunch AND recess? That's some deep shit. Now, if we make it so the fucking TEACHERS get no breaks, you KNOW their punk asses will be ballin'! And don't even get me started on the theory of obesity and lack of excercise in our schools...

15/Gotta love how Justin Timberlake's subpar sophmore album hits #1 when it comes out. Don't get me wrong, JT can do his thing, he just fails to do it on this outting. You also have to love Gwen Stefani wanting to get her 2nd album out by year's end. She is doing her thing, especially with a 4 month old running around. But ma, Akon? Don't stretch too far...

16/Remember the exclusive Mork & Mindy NIke Dunk SB? Well, there is a Pee Wee Herman SB Dunk that has been spotted this week... I like the color scheme, I just don't wear hi-tops. I wonder how scarse these jammies will be. Get ya game on!

17/As if we needed this, Fisher Price is dropping the 10th anniversary "Tickle Me" Elmo doll, dubbed the "TMX" (no, he is not a Muslim), making sure punk ass kids will be bugging out this Christmas. Place your orders now. My thing is, what's the point of a convulsing doll? Is that really a good time? Shit doesn't even seem fun to me. Maybe I have to be 2 to understand.

That's all I have for this week. As per usual, keep your ears peeled and your eyes open. And check out our final thought...



Beautiful. Uno.
