classic halloween scary moments.

Mike Tyson & Bobby Brown sing the “Monster Mash” on The Jimmy Kimmel Show.

The “how many” on Halloween 2008 won’t be in regards to the amount of candy, but the amount of Obama/McCain/Palin/Joe the Plumber costumes I will have to come across. Happy Halloween, everyone.

george bush vs. biggie smalls?

What could one of hip hop’s greatest rappers of all time and America’s least favorite president possibly have in common? Well, for starters, they both have the ability to stir up people using just their words.

“My shit is deep, deeper than my grave G/ I’m ready to die and nobody can save me/ Fuck the world, fuck my moms and my girl/ My life is played out like a jheri curl, I’m ready to die ” -Notorious B.I.G. “Ready to Die”

“I stand by all the misstatements that I’ve made.” -Governor George W. Bush to Sam Donaldson, 8/17/93

And they both have biographical movies coming to theaters soon.

W. (2008)

Director: Oliver Stone

Writer: Stanley Weiser

Starring: Josh Brolin as George W. Bush

Notorious (2009)

Director: George TIllman, Jr.

Writer: Reggie Rock Bythewood and Cheo Hodari Coker

Starring: Jamal Woolard aka Gravy as Christoper Wallace aka Notorious B.I.G. [who, by the way, is not Guerilla Black]

Both, also have the opportunity to paint a picture on the duality of man.

beatbox to beat off weak thoughts.

He’s inside my brain, his full time job is making me insane. Serving up self-sabotage, like my self confidence is a big mirage…” –Jay Smooth

Our fears and insecurities over “the haters” (formerly known in the 90’s as “people who pray & prey on my downfall”) seems to by skyrocketing as a culture.   One swift view of any YouTube video and you’ll surely see profanity-laced comments that make you scratch your head and just wonder – why? But, don’t worry about the folks on that branch of the hater tree, they’re human after all (and the easiest kind to deal with). The real hater you should be focused on battling is the little hater inside.
