Ain't no party like a S__________ party?

Alright so I am not the party type, not too into clubbing unless it's a club that's got good music. But a friend of mine has been bugging me for a minute about this thing called "Shuffle" that goes down once a month down at Revival. The concept of "Shuffle" is real simple, basically they just shuffle through songs from genre to genre, so you can be bumping to some R. Kelly and next thing you know ACDC is on. After watching some of their videos off their youtube channel, I was convinced, because you can see how into it the crowd it, the music is REAL LIVE and you know when 1LoveT.O./Remix fam is in the building it's going to be a real PARTY. So with that said since their last one was yesterday, I am thinking of hitting up the one in June.

The best coach you've never heard of

Don Meyer is one of the best coaches in basketball, that you've never heard of. To everybody else, he is just a coach. To everybody involved in coaching, he is a legend. As of January 10th, 2009 he passed Bob Knight for the most wins in NCAA Men's Basketball with 903 wins. But his story goes deeper than that....

Travis Barker x Eminem

"You Got Me"

...and now she in my world like hip-hop


I've been meaning to share this interesting story told to me by my brother's school's basketball coach (whew). One day, after catching one of their games, I went up to introduce myself to my brother's coach. She looked at me like she was happy to meet me, then she proceed to tell me a neat story about my brother and his certain jersey number of choice.

I remember this one day where my brother came home and cried, but I never realized why. Until that afternoon. His coach told me when they were choosing their jersey numbers, my brother wanted to wear "21", but another kid in front of him had another picked that number. While it never clicked in my head initially what's the significant behind "21", I soon realized why he was so upset, because my brother wanted to wear my jersey number. I have to admit, I got a little choked up. I didn't know how to feel, I was happy, proud and a little worried.

For my brother and I because of our age difference (10 years) we don't really do much together and we didn't really connect until this past summer when we spent every moment of everyday with one another since my mom was away. My mom has always told me how much my brother looks up to me, how when he gets something (usually food) he always share with me, how when I am out he'll stay up to wait for me. I never grasp how to be a brother until this summer, I never knew how much he meant to me until this summer and I never knew how much I love him until now.

What worries me is this kid looks up to me, and I haven't exactly been the role model type. It worries me that he'll grow up and do the things that I do. After hearing about the jersey story, I realized how much I am not doing for myself, how much I need to do to better myself, how much I need to do to be a better brother and a better role model. I love this kid to death, I am sure everybody out there who has siblings will know exactly what I am talking about.

I have a problem

For those who know me, know that I love my music and my iPod. Ever since copping it back in '05 I've been carrying it everywhere I go. Since I got the OG 5th Gen iPod (60gb) and knowing how I download music by the gigabyte, it's a surprise I have lasted this long without ever reaching full capacity. I always like to keep things fresh deleting stuff I don't listen to no more (or wondered why I even downloaded in the first place). But recently it's been kind of tough since I am very sentimental, and I hate to part with some of the files. This has also created another problem, I know that one day I will go over that 60gbs (55.68) and I know I will need a new iPod. But I love this one so much I can't come to the fact that I will have to part with it one day. I hate having to throw away things, because I feel like everything has a sentimental value and it's very difficult for me to ditch things. Well I am still alright at the moment floating around 10 gbs, I really don't want to delete anything or get a new iPod (because I'll miss it). I just wanted to rant about this that's all.

LMAO!!! Melo Pau

First thing I saw when I got home, had me dying because it's freakin' hilarious. Ladies and Gents...allow me to introduce to you Melo Pau (no photoshop necessary).


I must say I have the utmost respect for this dude because of his career of hitting big shots in clutch situations and the fact that he's a winner (7 NBA Championships) . But as a Kings fan, I hated him for this. So when I heard he has no idea where all of his seven rings are, I couldn't help but let out a big grin followed with a "HA! HA!".

Following a videoconference with NBA greats Robert Horry, Dominique Wilkins and Bernard King about the most amazing moments of their careers, Horry admitted that he doesn’t know the exact whereabouts of his seven championship rings.

"Honestly, I don't know where they are right now!" Horry started, laughing. "I just moved, so I think that they're in a box somewhere in my house. The movers weren't supposed to touch it, but they did. I used to keep them in a jewelry box in my bathroom, but I think that they're in the house somewhere."

Dude probably hired a Kings fan to help him move. Karma is a female dog.

Hey Ma I'm on Perez (sort of)

Alright so I mentioned in my previous post about one of my videos from the So Far Gone Tour where Drake give a shout out to (his rumoured) girlfriend Rihanna and how it's been getting mad views well, turns out it was posted on 2Dopeboyz. Well I got a call today from a friend (who is a Perez Hilton addict) that my video is on I was like "oh snap, that is pretty cool" although I don't know how I could be excited because it's just a video I took, it's not like I am in the video or even if I am in the video it's not exactly a good thing to be on that site. But it's still cool to find something you're associated with to be on one of the more well known sites out there.

This is a lil OD

So this video that I took from the Drake show of him performing "Every Girl" has been getting hits (views) like crazy. I thought I posted those videos from the show just so I can share the experience. But thanks to the recent news of him hooking up with Rihanna, and the fact that he gave her a shout out (personally I think it was because of her nudie pictures) the view count for that video has sky rocketed. It was at around 1400 last night, then 4400 at around 1pm yesterday. When I left my house last night at 6pm it was already at 14000 views. I just got home and checked again, it's at 55030 (actually count). My email inbox also got spammed with like comment notices for the video as well. It's a little crazy and kind of amazing watching the view count jump like that. Anyways thats way.

I just figured out why I got so many hits Shake from 2dopeboyz posted it on they're site, that explains a lot.


Coldplay just dropped this dope free live album for their fans. It's a complilation of live recording from their Viva La Vida tour. What makes this really cool besides the fact that it's free, is the quality and the vibe you get from listening to it. The responds from the crowd is "bone chilling", when I listened to "Fix You" and the fans sang with Chris on the chorus it was wicked.

Almost done

I must of shuffled through like ten different layouts and templates, even tried to make my own but since I somehow forgot how to read html or was just too lazy to figure them out. I ended up with the layout I have now. Originally I wanted something where I have space for a banner but then I really didn't want it to look like my own layout. I wanted something different, clean and yet out of the norm. So here we are, with a simple redesign. The sidebar is not on the left, navigation bar is gone (sorry), no banner, wider post space (bigger pictures and videos). It's looking alright so far (at least for me anyways. I just need to edit my post then I'll be done.

Goodbye for now

I love to blog, and it's obvious that I spend a lot of my time on here. But I think it's time for some change. I thought about moving over to tumblr (because I love their clean designs) but my peeps are (with exception to two) here on blogger so I will stay. What I need to do is some cleanup, re-pimp out this page so there's something fresh for my eyes (and your's) to look at. With the new change, I think I need to refocus my direction and purpose for this blog. I felt that I have drifted away from the initial purpose of starting this blog. I wanted this to be about me, to write about stuff that makes me happy, to share and I felt that sometimes I forget about that and post too many random things. But I do appreciate all the feedback and encouragement (you know who you are). So with that said, I need to get to working on a new layout, re format my posts, delete useless posts. Start fresh!


Hardly home but always reppin' - cont

After realized I have no idea how to shrink my massive video files, I gave up and decided to let youtube slowly upload them for me. The results was a long wait but the vids look great in high quality. Too bad my memory card can't take too many of these. But yea as promised here are the videos that I took from the show the other night.

Probably the biggest part of the show, I got goosebumps when Bun-B came on stage (pause) and I still get goosebumps everytime I watch this video. Dude is a legend in this game, it's so cool for him to come here and show mad love to the fans. And it's friggen Bun-B! r.i.p. Pimp C, 14 years in the game and it's still UGK 4 life.

I know this video is incomplete, that's because I ran out of memory from putting my camera at the wrong setting. I was hoping I could at least catch the hook for "City is Mine" but couldn't.


Here's the full so called "freestyle" with the BB reference, it wasn't really a freestyle because we all know he ain't a freestyle rapper. It's just dope how he set it up and stiffed armed the haters (me included) out there who was heated about his lame freestyle on Hot 97 with Flex where dude read his rhymes off his BB and still managed to lose track of himself by adlibing for like 3 minutes. But nonetheless after this all is forgiven. HA! Peep the crowd reaction after the BB line.

footage from the booth. Recapping the show.

Boom Boom POW - Ash Roth edition

Originally I thought this was lame since the screenshot showed him reading off his BB but after hearing from a friend that it's actually dope and nothing like the "Drake freestyle". I gave it a chance...and it's friggen dope not to mention hilarious.

Hardly home but always reppin'

Alright so tonight was the highly anticipated homecoming for Toronto's own Drake. Well it's technically part two because he came back once with Weezy for "I Am Music". But this was the official homecoming, first time headlining his own tour. The show was pretty dope, I got a little more amped when I got word that Bun-B is in town to perform. The best part of the night has got to be him freestyling over 'Ye's Say You Will and saying how he's "just freestyling, off the dome. no Blackberry, I ain't looking at my phone". Overall though he put on a helluva show, you can obviously tell that Weezy's showmanship rubbed off on him because son was just on all night (no homo). Anyway here's an exclusive soundcheck clip from 1LOVE T.O. (shouts out to T-RexXx & Bryan Brock). More videos to come.

This is even more cruel than the last "cruel" post I made

The homie Will, posted this the other day and had me dying for a minute. So I figure I share. It's a video which the host, the mom and the neighbours join forces to prank these kids. Who thinks they have what it takes to take on zombies. The subtitles and the facial expressions on these kids are golden. But this is really cruel to play a joke like that on these kids, if it was me I'd be traumatized for life.

Watch out for this guy


The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company ... a church ... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past. We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude ... I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me, and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you ... we are in charge of our Attitudes.

Where will Amazing Happen

Whoever is responsible for these commercials, you have outdone yourself this time. The editing is bonkers.


Allergy Season

While many are enjoying the beautiful sunshine and the nice weather that comes around this time of the year. I am one of those people that hates it, not because of the weather but because of my allergies. Every year around spring/summer time my allergy would kick in. I would wake up in the morning I cannot stop sneezing, blowing my nose, or rubbing my eye. It's the worst feeling in the world and it's mad lame since it goes away after I pop one of those allergy pills. It really grinds my gears.

On a semi unrelated note: Can I have her in the mornings instead of my allergies?!

Still Fly

Gone Fishing

For those who know me, knows I talk a lot...whether it's sports, music, movies, tv shows. Whatever it is I can go on for days, that's because I can't help but share with people all the things that I digging. Some people might not like it but I don't really give a flying (you know what). Also with this blog I've been able to blog about some of my favourite shows, movies, etc. With the hope that somebody will read, watch or listen to my two cents and become a fan. Anyways let's get on topic shall we.

Above is the cover art for the lastest
Cool Kids mixtape "Gone Fishing". For those who don't know who "The Cool Kids"'s not my job to tell you who they are, my job is to provide you a link <--there so you can click on it and open up to the wonderful Wikipedia page that should have more than enough information than you'll need to know. Back on topic, I was kind of late on these guys simply because they rocked xxl t's and sagged their skinny jeans (sorry sometimes I judge a book by the cover). With that said I told myself I won't dig their music because I didn't like how they dressed. Months later, like the hypocrite that I am I watched they're video for "Pennies" and I felt like an idiot the moment the hook came in "kick it in the city/when we in/around town/next door neighbors tellin us/that it's too loud/now neighbor, can you please just turn that mess down?/this is the sound of throwin pennies on the ground". It was not to say I was blown away by that but I was amazed at the fact that the hooked was so fluent, crisp and memorable because by the time the first verse was done I could repeat the hook already word for word. Now that I've gotten the chance to listen to some of their other records, I must admit I am impressed. Because their flow is tight, their word play is nice and they just have fun with it. They don't talk about politics they just rhyme about their gear, and their kicks. Just being "cool" with it that's why they are "The Cool Kids". Like them, hate them Their new mixtape should be out in the next few hours on (free downloads) definitely give them a listen if you're interested for some "fun" hip hop...even if you're not you should download it because it's free.


I am sorry but this is too funny, this is vintage Ron Artest. The man just speaks his mind and doesn't give a fuck about nothing. He may sound like an idiot but really...I dare you to tell that man he's a fool and see what happens.
