Screaming OW! out loud, right now I'm the SHIT!

If you haven't heard of this dude yet then smh at you. Known earlier on as the white boy rapper that sounds like the other white rapper Eminem. This kid is starting to carve out a niche for himself with his debut album "Asleep in the Bread Aisle". The first time I heard of the name Asher Roth was off his Greenhouse Effect Mixtape, my initial reaction was like everybody else's "damn this kid sounds like Em and he's pretty nice too". Although the mixtape didn't do much for me but it was enough to convince me on the hype train of this "next white rapper". Now that "Asleep in the Bread Aisle" is out, let's just say I can't stop listening to is. If I wasn't convinced about his talents now, then I am now. Given that he has the upper hand on the rest of the 09 Newbies, by putting his album out first. It's not to say "Asleep in the Bread Aisle" is great but it's a solid start and definitely worth a listen.


I didn't even know he had a video for this song until I woke up this morning to this playing on my TV. I've expressed my love for this song from a previous post, or how much I love his music from many previous posts. He may not have the appeal of the big names in the R&B game today but he never dissappoints. Juslisen

How bad do you want it?

"my whole life you said that I could do anything if I was willing to fall flat on my face..." - Jenny Humphries

I've always been a firm believer that nothing is impossible or unachievable, just as long as you're willing to work at it, it's all about how bad you want it.

Attention Deficit Tour (Toronto)

I really wanted to go to this show but I never gotten around to getting the tickets, and I was out having dinner with my closest friends so it was all good. I am not the biggest fan of Wale but I still think he's dope and it's good to see him doing his thing. The real reason I wanted to go was to see Colin Munroe live, dude is super talented so just be on the lookout for his future projects, I guarantee you will not be disappointed. Anyways 2DopeBoyz dropped these videos from the "Attention Deficit" show last night at the Mod Club. Wale does a dope cover of "Best I Ever Had" by OVO's Drizzy, peep the video for his first single "Chillin'" and Colin Munroe's rendition of Yeezy's "Flashing Lights".

This was more crazier than I thought

5:30 a.m.

Three Mississauga students scope the store's layout through the glass doors and come up with strategy. One will go left, the other right and the third straight ahead to the accessories table.

"You have to have a group strategy and you can't be too greedy," says one. "You have to decide what is the most important piece you want," says another. "I want the blue suit but the jacket is on one side and the pant is on the other side of the department. There is no chance of me getting both if I was alone."

Oh how I remember these girls, the had this hypebeast thing down to a tee. In the span for 4 plus hours they managed to:

- buy 4 rounds of coffee (Starbucks & 2nd Cup)

- steal a metal chair from Dundas square

- all three of them changed jackets

- although they weren't the most attractive looking bunch, but would still get a pass from me (smh) then they pulled out their lil death sticks and started killing themselves slowing right in front of me (biggest f'n turnoff)

- talked about clothes

- got on TV

- game planned

- created an awkward moment when one of them pulled out her Ray Bans (mines were already on)

9:25 a.m.

Stephen Thompson (one of the few people willing to give his name) is an outsider here. He is neither fashionista nor frequent shopper – in fact, he owns a construction company. He has driven from Mississauga for the love of his wife: She has instructed him to get the tunic top she saw on a recent episode of Cityline, even drawn him a helpful picture.

No one tells him he is too far back in the line. No one tells him it is hopeless.

Respects to this man right here, He cam prepped with a drawing so he can buy a dress for his wife. Too bad he didn't get what he was looking for.

10:02 a.m.

Two minutes after opening, the cash registers ring in the first item of the day, a short abstract print chiffon dress.

I always envisioned reading about myself in the newspaper, I'd just never thought it would say I was buying a dress.

Words from a friend

"I don't think I can ever let her go and it's annoying how everyone says it's because I'm young and she's my first or whatever. But love isn't about age or even if their first or last, its powerful feeling or things that takes control of you. If I follow my heart and my guts I know there will be a good outcome to all this. It will take time to fully over come this pain but this is the price I pay for letting myself to her. Even if we didn't work out in the end, I know things will be alright between us and I hope given time and space things will fall into place for both of us." -PL

wise words Paddy.

We sure are cute for two ugly people

Juno MacGuff: That's not what it's about. I just need to know that it's possible that two people can stay happy together forever.
Mac MacGuff: Well, it's not easy, that's for sure. Now, I may not have the best track record in the world, but I have been with your stepmother for 10 years now and I'm proud to say that we're very happy. Look, in my opinion, the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you, the right person is still going to think the sun shines out your ass. That's the kind of person that's worth sticking with.
Juno MacGuff: Yeah. And I think I've found that person.


Ya boy, Toronto's own Drake has been on the grind lately promoting his ass off and headlining his own club tour. In the recent weeks he's been clubbing with Cam, interviews with NY's top hip hop radio stations and even been in the studio with Jay-Z.

Wow I haven't updated in a while

I usually visit VideoOnSmash once everyday to check up on new music videos. I came across the vid of Swizzy and Drag-On. Now for those who don't know Swizz Beatz' is one of the few producers in the game who produced most of his beats without samples and rely most on his sped up drum patterns. Which means without the process of having to clear samples, he can make you a club banger in a matter of minutes. Back to the video I am sure this was one of those random beats he got and just jumped on it, make a video just for the hell of it. Not to mention this is a hot track too, Swizz didn't try to overdo himself on the mic either.

Good things

Good things don't last forever baby
Something bout you girl that drives me crazy
Ain't no ifs and buts or maybes
You'll always be my friend

You will always be
You will always be
Say you'll always be
My friend

...a lame excuse to put a pic of my favourite lady in the game...perhaps.

Maybe we should try something different

Jesse: This friend of mine had a kid, and it was a home birth, so he was there helping out and everything. And he said at that profound moment of birth, he was watching this child, experiencing life for the first time, I mean, trying to take its first breath... all he could think about was that he was looking at something that was gonna die someday. He just couldn't get it out of his head. And I think that's so true, I mean, all - everything is so finite. But don't you think that that's what, makes our time, at specific moments, so important?
Celine: Yeah, I know. It's the same for us, tonight, though. After tomorrow morning, we're probably never going to see each other again, right?
Celine: We, maybe we should try something different. I mean, it's no so bad if tonight is our only night, right? People always exchange phone numbers, addresses, they end up writing once, calling each other once or twice...
Jesse: Right. Fizzles out. Yeah, I mean, I don't want that. I hate that.
Celine:I hate that too, y'know.
Jesse: Why do you think everybody thinks relationships are supposed to last forever
Celine: Yeah, why. It's stupid.

The Score

I am currently in love with OSTs (Original Sound Track) and by that I don't mean songs that were put in the movie, I mean songs composed for the movie. You know the piece of music that really jacks you up for a specific scene or part of a movie. There's plenty of good ones out there but the one I can name off the top of my head are "Hello Zepp" or "Zepp Overture" by Charlie Clouser (formerly of NIN). It's may as well be one of the more well known one around since it's be mixed and remixed 15 different times for the Saw movie franchise. For those who have no clue what the hell I am talking about because you're a "lame" for not watching one of the "illest" (I won't use sick) movies series ever.



"Hello Zepp" is a piece of "incidental music" created for the movie's infamous, insane, shock of your life plot twists. You really have to listen to it or watch the movie to understand how the effects of this piece of music works.

Watch your daughters because in a few years, this kid is gonn be tearing shit down in the club and stealing your little princesses!


Toronto is one of the most beautiful, diverse city in the world. There's a lot of history, talent, cultures bundled within this city we call home. Toronto is that city, the city that I grew up in, the city of my many firsts, the city I grew up in, the city that I love.

While Toronto offers many new opportunities for us, we haven't always embraced it. Since the new millennium crime rates increased, drugs, and shootings have given our city a bad rep. There's simply not enough love or pride in our city, not enough people embracing thecity for what it is. Toronto is such a beautiful place, with beautiful people, with wonderful opportunities. It's saddens me that it's often overshadowed by the murders, shootings or other unfortunate tragedies.

1LOVET.O. is a site that was created to present Toronto to the world. Serving as an outlet to showcase our home, our city, our Toronto. It's sole purpose is to unify all the talents, culture, arts of our city in one spot for us to see, to embrace, to appreciate.

1LOVET.O. is necessary step to serve as a support for the entire city, striving for greater awareness and unity. It's time Torontonians and the rest of the world to open our eyes to see Toronto for the city it really is.

Who is this?!

it's motherfucking SETH ROGEN!

Dude looks like a friggen stick, barely recognizable. Anybody who needs to lose some LBs holla at him, because he went from looking like a beluga whale (his words from Zack and Mary) to a skinny looking guy whose head is now too big for his body.

The powers of GOOGLE!

I got a funny story for y'all. If you haven't noticed, I follow a lot of blogs (some quite religiously) occasionally there are materials on some of those sites I would find to be inspiring. Yesterday I was going to write about this quote from one of the blogs (this one being LostintheWILLderness), I vaguely remember what the quote was but it was something like "it's impossible to find your perfect match..." (the actual quote is "it's impossible to find your perfect match. It's about finding someone with flaws that you can accept") so I googled it. This is what I got.

Being the quote crazy person I am, I looked up the whole quote so I can in turn quote the person for the quote (say it fast 5 times...jk).

I ended up finding this.

Apparently dude copied and pasted 18 posts word for word and used it as his (smh).

Shawty brand new (brand new) fresh out the box (fresh out the box)

Trey Songz is back and ready to drop his third LP this summer titled READY.

Check out the video below, it's packed with cameos which includes Toronto's own Drake.

"You're 5 foot nothin', 100 and nothin' and you have nearly a speck of athletic ability. And you hung in there with the best college football team in the land for two years.

Bring me back

No lyrics this time, just listen.

I gave Alright, Still a listen last night, I don't know why but I did, and I am glad I did. I just really liked that album. It reminds of so much, you see that's how my brain works. I store a lot of random memories and junk in my head, and the smallest thing reminds me of those memories or thoughts, they all come sprawling out. That's how I can often remember dates so well, you give me something like what I may have done and I can tell you what date it was, because I just remember it. Alright, Still was probably one of those albums I would never listen to. Perhaps it was too pop for me or I had no clue who Lily Allen was. Musically, Lily and I would never have crossed path if it wasn't recommended to me by this girl who I had a thing for at the moment, so I figured "it wouldn't hurt". Now I don't know if there's really such a thing as love at first listen but if there is then you can chalk this up as such, I was in love with the album. Everything from the production, lyrics and musical style was dead on, it just blew me away (word to Mark Ronson). The few months that I listened to it on repeat, coincided with some of my happiest moments. I guess that's why I remember so much just from listening to it, it's takes me to the happy memories, the happy place so to speak. I guess then I wouldn't have problem of letting those feelings go for a minute and just place it on the album. Even if I do forget one day, I would know where those memories are, the memories that I wouldn't trade for anything, the memories of...;)

"The littlest things that take me there I know it sounds lame but its so true"


It's so effortless for him, it seems like dude can pump out a hit while doing a number 2. Now knock him all you want for his lack of "depth" in terms of his lyrics, but you can't argue with the results, he's just a certified hit maker.



Right side of ya brain

You loved me baby, unlove me baby
You lead me on, you lock the doors when I'm home
You heart me baby, then you hardly baby
You need me baby, and then you see me gone
You say I'm your friend, and I'll be there in the end
Then you tell me baby, you sell me baby

But I should be ashamed cause I
Let you treat me this way can't lie no
Fortunate to say that love
Never let's me use
