Kobe vs. Jordan: Is Bryant the Best Player Ever?

Kobe Jordan? Pictures, Images and Photos

Somthing I was reading online..made me change my opinion on Kobe being the greatest ever..

Kobe vs. Jordan: Is Bryant the Best Player Ever?
by
Matt Homdis



In the past couple of days, I have written two articles that have been lambasted by many because of my supposed biased view against Kobe Bryant in this years MVP race.

Though I can take it as well as any, one comment that kept coming back time and time again, was that said Bryant was the greatest of all time, or near it.

That he is better then Michael Jordan ever was!

There was even one comment on how even Magic Johnson was better then Jordan.

As funny as that one was, Johnson not even considered the greatest point guard of all time, it did get me thinking how Bryant and Jordan stack up, and if maybe Kobe had surpassed the icon.

Let us start off by comparing some key stats both have achieved by the year of their 30th birthdays:

Bryant: 20,883 Pts (24.8Ppg), 4418 Reb(5.3), Ast 3867 (4.6)

Jordan: 21,541 Pts (32.3Ppg), 4219 Reb(6.3), Ast 3539 (5.9)

Playing more then two years less then Kobe, Jordan handily takes the stat category.

Winner: Jordan

Next, let us look at the accolades both received:

Bryant: 10 All-Star games, 2 All-Star game MVP, 6 times 1st-team All-Defense team, 5 times 1st-team All-NBA, 2 time scoring champ

Jordan: 9 All-Star games, 1985 Rookie of the Year, 1988 Defensive Player of the year, 3 time MVP, 3 time Finals MVP, 6 times 1st-team All-Defense team, 8 time 1st-team All-NBA, 3 times Most Steals in the league, 7 time scoring champ, 7 time led the league in player efficiency

Winner: Jordan

Many contend that Bryant has had to face tougher competition then Jordan did. Let's look at some teams and players both had to face off against:

Bryant: Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs, Steve Nash and the Phoenix Suns, LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavs, Chauncey Billups and the Detroit Pistons

Jordan: Isiah Thomas and the Detroit Pistons, Larry Bird and the Boston Celtics, Magic Johnson and the Los Angeles Lakers, Patrick Ewing and the New York Knicks

Though the players mentioned in Jordans list are all Hall of Famers, it is too early to say those in Bryants list won't achieve the same heights.

However, it does prove that Jordan had his fair share of opponents.

Winner: Push

A true measure of a players greatness is how many titles and wins he brings to a team. So lets look at how both players stack up against each other:

Bryant: 596-331, 64.3% winning percentage, 4 Finals appearances, 3 titles, missed playoffs once

Jordan: 445-293, 60.3% winning percentage, 3 titles, 1 NCAA championship, 2 Gold Medals in 1984 and 1992 Olympics

We would call it a push, but after bringing in Jordans other accomplishments on the court, there could only be one decision.

Winner: Jordan

Statistics do not lie. Accomplishments do not lie.

How can anyone put Kobe Bryant in Michael Jordan stratosphere yet?

His career still in its prime. Kobe might one day attain or even surpass Jordan, as impossible task as that may seem.

Kobe Bryant is clearly his generations greatest player so far, but comparing him to the greatest of all time is unjust to him. He should be judged on his own accomplishments because, as you can all see, he just is not in Jordan's league.

Kobe Bryant is not the next Jordan—he is Kobe Bryant.

So Long, Farewell...


Shalom... 

I want to thank everybody who loyally came through and checked the site out. Knowing that there were people who routinely swung through to read articles and check posts, kept ideas fresh in my head. It takes a lot to try and write an article everyday, but it was definitely my goal for the short-term. 

This site was like a test run to see if my writing was decent, and I'm confident that some of you enjoyed at least a post or two. Going forward I'll continue to get my ideas out in different forums and I'll make them known to you all. So be on the lookout!

I'm thinking about either starting a book or hopping into screen writing. Based off of some of the love I've received on this site it motivated me to want to do something bigger and better. This was a great stepping stone in developing thoughts and ideas, as well as learning about myself as a writer. But alas, my time as a blogger is up.

Thanks for all the kind words man, they meant a lot...

Peace!

Body language part 1 - Attract Women
People are active, and ever-changing. In fact, we are NEVER the same as we were in the past. Those changes show up in our body language, but that doesn’t mean we should ditch control.

If so, we wouldn’t trouble with school, riding a bike and everyone would still be a virgin. After all, we were all virgins once, weren’t we?

Look, there’s a difference between being UNAWARE of something, and being INDIFFERENT. Unaware just means we don’t know what we’re doing with ourselves. Ignorance may be bliss, but it’s not useful.

Indifference is when you know what’s going on, but you decide to ignore it. WRONG! Where’s that hand!

You can’t be passive all your life and expect things to come to you. The planet doesn’t work that way (my apologies to all silver-spooners I’ve offended with this blanket statement that only applies to 100% of all living things, rounded to the closest .00000001).

You need to be ACTIVE. You need to TAKE CHARGE of your life, and that means taking an energetic role in the changes that happen to you.

They’re coming either way. Personally, I’d rather have a vote.

So no whining about the walk you’ve developed and how that represents YOU as you are now. If that walk doesn’t work, kill it. Time to get a better one.

And there’s an additional benefit beyond the initial differences that changing your body language communicates to the outside world.

It also can change your central one. That’s right, we’re going to attack confidence both ways, coming and going.

Seriously, this works. The Japanese have long held the belief that a messy home leads to a cluttered mind, and a clean one, a clear one. The outer world touches our inner one, and when you change the way you move, you also change the way you think.

Don’t believe me? Try it. Pick a wall and stand up straight against it. Your feet, butt, shoulders, and head should all touch the wall, exerting about the same amount of pressure (no smooshing). Now walk away from the wall, but hold the pose for 5 minutes.

How do you feel? Right, like someone stuck a rod up your ass. Just what we were going for.

It’s going to feel weird for awhile, because it’s different and new. Keep going, though, and eventually it won’t feel odd. In fact, it’ll start to feel GOOD. You’ll find yourself with this new CONFIDENCE that wasn’t there before and doesn’t seem to have much of an explanation. It’s not your inner exercises – you’ll get to know that sensation. It’s… nothing.

Except that you are standing like you are confident. Cause and affect get blurred, and you wind up FEELING a certain way just because you are ACTING that way.

Either way, you look better standing straight, and you project confidence to all comers. Women find you more attractive, even if they aren’t self-aware enough to know why. Co-workers and those around you often might note that you seem… DIFFERENT.

Congratulations young Jedi, you’re on your way.

Standing up straight is about as basic as it comes, but non-verbal communication goes much deeper.

When you walk and lead with your head, not only are you hunching and sending out uncomfortable self-conscious shrinking vibes, but you’re also telling people that you have a tendency to THINK a lot. Maybe more than you should.

Lead with your stomach, it speaks to your appetites and emotions.

Lead with your pelvis, and it says you are sexually qualified, experienced, and confident.

This might sound like a lot of crap, but try it. Walk around for awhile leading with different parts of your body, and become aware of the changes that happen in your head. It’s real, VERY real. And there’s no reason bad chairs in abandoned classrooms should have more of a say about how you feel than you do.

Those nervous tics, those fidgety hands? Lose ‘em. Every button you finger while talking to someone – especially an attractive woman who’s trying to make a snap judgment about you – is a negative. Every fast surprising motion says you have low self-esteem – it’s like you have to get it done before some stronger guy comes along to stop you.

It’s like the beta wolves trying to feed before the alpha wakes up and wants more – complete with herky-jerky looks to verify for his approach. This instinct runs deep.

When you make eye-contact and drop it first. Oh god no. In our part of the animal kingdom, this is strong supplicating behavior. There are monkeys which tear the arms off other animals – as well as humans – if they don’t drop gaze first.

So if you are looking at a woman and look away before she does? You’ve just said she’s in control, and her chances of becoming attracted to you pretty much disappear.

That’s not to say you stare from a far distance. That’s stalker behavior – when far enough away betas get bolder – and she’ll believe your a freak. This is about close quarters, the moment before a conversation starts.

Crossing your arms? Stop that. You’re telling everyone to stay far away from you, so don’t be surprised when they do.

Leaning in to your target? Why not just say “I want to have sex with you.” That’s precisely what you’re doing, and most guys do it so early that it’s a major turn-off (unlike once she’s primed, in which case it can start speeding things up).

Standing in her personal space (which for most people is about 18 inches to 3 feet away)? You’re triggering her to run away, which is NOT a feeling you want linked with you. Standing right on the border of her personal space? This can be golden if you do it right, creating a positive tension in her mind although she probably won’t know what from. Much like really needing to piss can lead to a boner, this strain can become sexual.

Standing well outside her personal space and not directing your body at her, remaining somewhat detached? Now that’s good – she’s going to want to know why she doesn’t have your consideration, and might start working to get YOUR approval. Don’tcha love that?

There are thousands of little cues we give off to each other, and the BEST way to learn them is to see them in action. Go out and find some guys doing well with the ladies. Watch them; see what they’re doing with the way they hold themselves, and what responses they are getting. If you think you’ve identified a non-verbal communication that signals confidence or sexual prowess or just universal alpha-ness, go practice it. Try it out. Odds are you won’t get it the first time, but don’t let that discourage you. There is no better way.


BODY LANGUAGE


1. Gauge how close someone is to you. The closer they are, the warmer their opinions are of you. The farther away that someone is, the less they care. It is worth noting that personal space is culturally fluid: be aware that what is close in one country is far away in another.
2. Watch their head position.

* Overly tilted heads are a potential sign of sympathy. Alternatively the person is trying to convince you of their honesty.
* Lowered heads indicate a reason to hide something. Take note if someone lowers their head. If it is when he is complimented, he may be shy, ashamed, timid, keeping distance from the other person, in disbelief, or thinking to himself. If it is after an explanation, then he may be unsure if what he said was correct.
3. It should be noted that some cultures see this as a sign of respect.
* Cocked heads mean that they are confused or challenging you, depending on eye, eyebrow, and mouth gestures.
4. Look into their eyes.
* Liars will consecutively look at you and look away a number of times. You can actually learn specifically how to observe behavior to judge whether someone's lying.
* People who look away while supposedly listening to you are thinking about something else. This is why when you are talking to a group of people, if an item in conversation strikes the one looking away, they will ask for you to repeat the story.
* Some cultures believe that looking at someone in the eyes is a sign of disrespect.
* Auditory learners may look from side-to-side and repeat phrases in an effort to retain information.
5. See if they're mirroring you. Mirroring is another common gesture. If someone mirrors, or mimics your appearance, this is a very genuine sign that they are interested in you.
6. Check their arms.

* People with crossed arms are closing themselves to social influence. The worst thing that you can do to people with crossed arms is to challenge them in one way or another, no matter how they react. This annoys them. Though some people just cross their arms as a habit, they're (slightly) reserved, they're uncomfortable with their weight (therefor trying to hide it), or they're just trying to hide something on their shirt.
* If someone rests their arms behind their neck, they are open to what is being discussed and interested in listening more. They may be waiting to state their opinion on the matter.
* Look at the location of their hands. If their hands are in their pockets, then they are more relaxed and are more likely to be attracted to you.
7. Be aware of nervous gestures:
* If someone brushes their hair back with their fingers, their thoughts about something conflict with yours. They might not voice this. If you see raised eyebrows during this time, you can be pretty sure that they disagree with you.
* If the person wears glasses, and is constantly pushing them up onto their nose again, with a slight frown, that may also indicate they disagree with what you are saying. Look to make sure they push up their glasses with an intent, not casually adjusting them. Look for pushing on the rim with two fingers, or an extra motion of wiggling the side of their glasses. The frown or raised eyebrows should tip you off.
* If they are playing or fiddling with their hair (a girl may twirl a lock of her tresses around a finger), they are feeling self-conscious and possibly uncomfortable.
* If someone is biting their lip, they are anticipating something.
* Lowered eyebrows and squinted eyes illustrate an attempt at understanding what is being said or going on. It's usually skeptical. (Or maybe they have a problem seeing things eg. short sightedness, astigmatism...)
8. Watch their feet:
* A fast tapping, shifting of weight, or movement of the foot will most often mean that the person is excited, nervous, scared, or intimidated.
* Slowly shifting weight usually means that someone is distracted, uncomfortable, or bored.
9. The eyes play a very important part:
* Dilated pupils mean that the person is interested. Keep in mind, however, that alcohol causes pupils to dilate, as does cocaine, amphetamines, MDMA and LSD. Don't mistake having a few drinks for attraction.
* Looking to the side means that the person feels guilty.


[edit] Tips

* It's easy to spot a confident person, they will make prolonged eye contact and have a strong posture.
* If people laugh excessively, it may be dishonest, or they just might be very naturally jovial, or just happy. Use your best judgment. Some people laugh out of nervousness.
* Don't isolate yourself by constantly examining body language when interacting with people. Otherwise there is no reason to gain a social upper hand anyway. This is paralysis by analysis.
* Watch the face, it will usually give off a quick involuntary and sometimes subconcious twitch when something happens that irritates, excites, or amuses them.
* Mimicking your actions means that the person is comfortable around you.
* Realize that most body language you see is obvious things, like frowning, stroking the chin, etc.

and you thoughtnewark was bad...| NEW ORLEANS



Pretty random..but every year I check for the worst places/most dangerous cities in the U.S..New Orleans is at the top of the list almost every year...check it out


Top 10 Most Dangerous Cities in America 2008

1. New Orleans
2. Camden, NJ
3. Detroit
4. St. Louis
5. Oakland
6. Flint, Mich.
7. Gary, Ind.
8. Birmingham, Ala.
9. Richmond, Calif.
10. North Charleston, SC

NEW ORLEANS — The crime wave that hit New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina shows little sign of abating, more than two years after city officials said taming the outbreak was among their top priorities.

The rates of killings and most types of property crime have kept pace with the city's population increase, according to police records. Sporadic violence also marred the city's famed Mardi Gras celebration since Saturday, with at least nine people wounded by gunshots, including some that were fired near a parade route Tuesday.

Recent crime figures show that the number of thefts reported in the first 10 months of 2007 was 51% higher than the same period in 2006; the number of robberies increased 54%, according to police records.

Such crimes are increasing despite an aggressive federal, state and city campaign that includes patrols by the National Guard and state police. For instance, more than 1,000 officers, state troopers and National Guardsmen were positioned along Mardi Gras parade routes this year.

Among the reasons for continuing problems:
FIND MORE STORIES IN: New Orleans | Hurricane Katrina | Mardi Gras | Hurricane | Michael Andrews | Crime Wave

•Turf wars between drug dealers who are vying for a smaller pool of users. An overwhelming number of killings revolve around selling and buying drugs, police spokesman Sgt. Joe Narcisse said.

•Burglars taking advantage of near-empty neighborhoods to steal lumber and copper wiring from half-built homes.

•A police force that says it is still struggling to restore its ranks after hundreds left post-Katrina. New Orleans had 1,720 officers before Katrina, when the city's population stood at 455,000. The force has fewer than 1,500 today. Population figures in New Orleans vary widely, but the Greater New Orleans Community Data Center estimated in December that there were about 320,000 residents. The non-profit group estimates population by analyzing postal data.

Based on population estimates, there are more police officers per 100,000 residents in New Orleans now (469) than there were before the storm hit (378.)

City police say they are making progress. The department is recruiting more officers and last month moved into its headquarters after more than two years working out of trailers.

"NOPD and the city (have) experienced challenges beyond belief when we consider what we have to deal with," Narcisse said.

Some critics say the city's police force would be more effective if it spent less time on minor crimes.

More than half of the 58,000 arrests made by New Orleans police last year were for traffic offenses or minor infractions that could have been resolved with citations rather than arrests, according to a study done by the Metropolitan Crime Commission, a local watchdog group. - USA TODAY

I also found out that New Orleans has a murder blog..this place may be hell on earth.. http://neworleansmurderblog.blogspot.com/

Question: Nature vs. Nurture

So since I didn't feel like writing anything today, I have a question I wanted to revisit.

A while ago me and damn near all of my facebook friends were having an argument on whether or not it was NATURAL to be monogamous. It's my personal opinion that it's not NATURAL to be with one person sexually, but societal norm natures us to believe that this is how we should be...

I need to know though, once and for all. Is it natural to be with just ONE person? And if no, then can you blame your partner for cheating on you??

Robert Geller for Levi’s 2009 fall/winter collection

A pretty dope collection...except for the denim jacket with the cut-off sleeves..that is pretty ass.





1, 2, 3...


So last night I got a chance to check out this place in the city called 1,2,3 Burger, Shot, Beer. Ummm, where the f**k has this place been all my life?? It's hella affordable, with mini burgers for $1, all types of shots for $2 (pause) and beer for $3 (Hence the name). Top it all off, they close at 4 in the morn! How real is that? (Jersey is just so ass). Anyway, its a nice place to "pregame" before going to a party if you want to save money on drinks and it's also perfect to go to after a late night of partying when you want to grab something to eat. Located on 10th ave between 50th & 51st streets. I will definitely be going back and you guys should do the same. Peace!

WHEN THE MONEY GOES, WILL THE HONEY STAY






Amber Rose has sure made a name for herself by dating the homie Kanye. Her career lifted off almost instantly, being one of the baddest white African chicks ever (yes she's african, her mother is from Cape Verde off the coast of West Africa). My question is with Amber being very open that she's bisexual, is the pressure on for Kanye to keep her interested? If I was dating a female that was previously with a chick, the pressure would most definetly be there. A woman ultimately knows how to please another woman, so I'm told. So a brother would have to be doing overtime down in the box. Licking and squeezing, kissing and rubbing, it just wouldn't stop. I'll be the first to say this relationship is doomed, I think it's a career move, and a damn good one at that.


Feminine Friday (no homo): Ginger+Liz Color Collection





I know it seems like this site is here to overly critique the female species. Don’t take it personally, I LOVE women. I think ya’ll are God’s greatest gift to this world besides Jesus Christ himself.

To prove how much I love you all, from now on every Friday is going to be Feminine Friday on the site… Ok, so probably not EVERY Friday, but every once and a while… We’re going to let one or two females write a piece on selected Friday’s AND I will also interview a woman who has a product or service to offer so they can get their stuff out there. Is that not dope? So if you want to get down with the get down hit me up at RodneyRikai@Gmail.com
The first female to be interviewed for Feminine Friday is one of my best female friends. I’ve known her over 10 years, and I can’t believe that she has grown into the successful human being that she has; not to say that I ever doubted her. It just blows my mind that somebody I have such a great relationship with is really in the driver’s seat, mashin’ the pedal in her own lane in “the industry”.

Her name is Sara Pickett and if it sounds familiar it should. She has been Ms. Everywhere in her blossoming career. She’s had billboards on some of the busiest streets in Manhattan, and hosted shows for BET and MTV alike, she’s even THE girl on the Motion’s box! She’s been in countless movies and videos, including Jay-z’s Excuse Me Miss and several other high profile, tasteful videos of the same persuasion.

Besides being a highly touted Model/VJ/Actress/Author, Sara is an entrepreneur. She, along with her partner Ginger Johnson, have a DOPE new cosmetic line called Ginger+Liz Color Collection. Obviously it’s nothing that we would rock fellaz, but wifey definitely needs a bottle or seven. The eye-popping colors have equally enticing names like Boy Toy, Swagger and He’s So Into Me. They are a direct reflection of the woman most women yearn to be: Bold yet subtle. Classy yet Racy. Modest yet Adorned.
This is definitely a product that needs to be seen by all. So we’re actually going to do a follow up interview on camera so that you guys can get an actual visual of how dope these colors are. As bright as the colors of Ginger+Liz are, they definitely have developed a product with the age-old adage “substance before style” in mind. Think it’s too good to be true? Here’s a snippet of some of our interview with the owners of this dope new line…

MenWithGirls.Com (MWG): So how did you guys come up with Ginger+Liz?
Ginger Johnson (GJ): Ginger and Liz are our middle names. After bouncing around a number of names we decided to keep it simple and glam. That's what our product is about. We provide small ticket luxury goods to the discerning customer influenced by fashion, entertainment, art, and travel.

MWG: What makes your product unique in comparison to your competition?
Sara Pickett (SP): OMG, its everything! Starting with the names of the nail polish. We put serious thought in making them fun and relatable… The quality, how long it lasts. Our polishes are two-coat nail polishes. You guys (referencing MWG) may not understand what that means, BUT, when you’re in a salon, you don’t want some chick putting on four coats of nail polish and then you have to sit there for 30 minutes while it dries! Who has time for that?

MWG: Which celebrities can you see rocking the following colors? “Heartbreaker”.
SP:Who’s a heartbreaker? Hmmm… Meagan Fox! Hands down, all day.

MWG: “He’s So Into Me”.
SP: Hmmm she has to be loved by everybody. Yet sweet and sexy... I think Sloan (actress Emmanuelle Chriqui) from Entourage. I had an hour long convo with someone the other day and they just kept telling me how she’s so ridiculously hot, yet sweet enough for tea with grandma.

MWG: Ok, so let’s switch it up. I say a celebrity, you say a color… Angelina Jolie?
SP: “Put a Ring on it”. When you see her, she’s just bad and you gotta have her.

MWG: Ok, so the current love of my life is Keri Hilson. If you had to pick a color which would it be?
SP: Everybody loves Keri! She definitely gets “Chase Me”. Men love her, hell, women love her…

MWG: Amberose?
SP: Yo! She is a bad B!T#H! She needs “Gimme More” or “Swagger”. Actually she’s so bad she can get every single color. A different color on each nail, she is the only one who can catch that.

MWG: Ok, Ginger what about you? Who do you see rockin’ your line?
GJ: We've already seen reality tv star Heidi Montag wearing "Swagger" in her soon to be released music video. Swagger is sure to be our cult classic shade and we envision Rihanna loving it as well. It's a cool and edgy metallic color with rose gold undertones. We can envision Michelle Obama wearing "Boss Lady" and we think Oprah would love "He's So Into Me". "Heartbreaker" would look great on Keira Knightley and "Gimme More" would do well for Britney Spears!

MWG: So right now where can people go to pick up Ginger+Liz?
GJ: Prayerfully the www.gingerandliz.com site will be up early September. We’re shooting for a 09.09.09 launch date. But you can also find the line at Serenity Spa and April Burton's Suite 303 in New York and Polished Beauty Bar and Stephen Webster salon in Atlanta. Nail salons have been very responsive to our line, excited about it even! Miami and Los Angeles locations soon to come... And of course we’re going to be selling product at you guys event on Aug. 30th at Dolce in Elizabeth, NJ!

We’ll have the on camera interview up first thing Monday. But in all honesty, the product is flat out nuts. As a man, I pay little to no attention to nails at all. But the colors and finish they have commanded my attention. I definitely have a feeling this line is going to take off. You can be one of the first to cop Ginger+Liz if you come out to the “heART Gallery”. Aug. 30th from 6-10pm at Dolce in Elizabeth.

jay-z and the gang - we run this town

so this video is like lord of the rings meets city of gods meets a busta rhyme video..they are doing to much..ass in my opinion.

WHEN KEEPING IT REAL GOES WRONG...


As most of us already know Plaxico Burress of the New York Giants got smacked with today with 2 years in prison for shooting himself in the thigh in a Manhattan nightclub. Two years? I seriously think that being an athlete fucked it up for him, there's no reason in the world to give a normal guy two years for all this. Don't me get wrong, he deserves a punishment but not this... 1000 hours of community service and one year suspension would have made sense, but this is a different time and age. Bad people should be in jail, not stupid people. Fiddling around with a .40 cal in your pocket when you're in no present danger boggles me, but you have to remember that these are athletes, football athletes for that matter. Plaxico Buress, another victim of (cue music) "When keeping it real goes wrong."

DRESS YOUR AGE.

Sooo..you wake up bright it early..it's you 28th birthday, you are on top of the world.
You get up, brush your teeth, wash your face, say good morning to mom...a great start to a great birthday. You go to your closet to get dressed for work, you grab those gap cargo khakis that are for you "all-purpose & all seasonal", next you grab that vintage polo from the closet, that from the look of it has been washed over 45 times. You run towards the door, you are ready to hop in the car and head to work...but not before you grab those all black pradas, the ones that you can wear to work & to the club. OK, now your ready for work.

You get to the work, hop on the elevator, you fail to notice that every morning you are on that elevator,you are dressed almost identical to the mail boy, and that your co-workers are always in slacks and a tie. Your co-workers try to hint to you that you are not dressed up to par,saying things like.."must have been a rough ride in to work" or "Hey I have that exact same shirt, I wore it on Casual Friday" or "Hey what "do you call those sneakers you are wearing, they came with the velcro straps". All of this of course goes over your head. At 5-6 o'clock, you rush to get out of that office, after all, it is your birthday.

You make it back to the house, your mother who has given up on you by now, wiping the sweat off of her forehead with a sigh of relief,congratulates her son for making it through another day of work. You are confused by this, but what the hell, stuff has been going over your head all day. You run up stairs to your room, before you get dressed you have to check your facebook/myspace/twitter..."what do we have here" you say, your friend from college sends you a link for the new "lil weezy" video. You are immediately mesmerized by the all red skinny jeans that he sags in the video. You run to your moms closet, grab a pair of her "hot pants" from when she was a "lady of the night". You keep on the high top black pradas you wore to work,to give you that "hipster" feel. You find a pair of ya fathers shades from the 80's, they are not Cazals, but they will do.By this time, you realize the shirt doesnt matter, so you throw on a white crew neck, with a catch saying like " Your Mom Digs Me" or "This is what money looks like".

I could keep going with this story,I am leaving out the club rejection part & the female rejection part in the interest of time, don't like writing this much, but I felt like it was necessary.


Okkkk..let me start off by saying..if this is blog described you..YOU ARE ASS.

I found a couple of outfits that you can wear,and still be "cool".

MAXWELL :: MADISON SQUARE GARDEN :: SEPT 28

BH-Maxwell from Darius McCoy on Vimeo.


You might want to read a disclaimer with ya chick if you taking her to see Maxwell perform live, I've seen it before... females will straight forget who they came there with, and any attempts to end the evening off right have been foiled by this smooth singing mofo. lol.

Im not gonna lie, I wasnt a fan at first, but if you really sit and listen with an open mind, any man could relate to the situations in his music, real shit... Anyway, Common and Chrisette Michele are also on this bill, which should make out to be a real dope event.

COMEBACK SEASON


Michael Vick returns to the NFL by signing with the Philadelphia Eagles. The deal is said to be worth over 1 million for the first year and 5 million going in for the second. Honestly speaking, Im happy for the man. Not because he's playing for my beloved Eagles, but the fact that he gets a second chance. I think he paid his debt by serving that ridiculous time in jail, lost MILLIONS of dollars, and will probably be criticized for the rest of his career.

Every man deserves a second chance, its been said time and time again. Learning from your mistakes makes us stronger, I think someone needs to tell this to the people that are protesting outside the Eagles offices. He served his time, and thats that. Some signs read "VICK SHOULD BE DOING LIFE." You gotta be kidding me, and Im sorry to all animal lovers out there, but knock-it-the-fuck-off, I've never had pets so maybe Im biased, but there's a lot of shit thats going on in this world. Is there this much hype over men that rape women and children? Even guys that commit murder can get less then 10, and Vick should do LIFE? Its sad... he made a mistake and that should be the end of it... What are your thoughts?

This Guy Might Have to be at a heART Gallery...

TREY SONGZ & CRABS? (no red lobster)

DAMN HOMIE..STRAP UP!

TRICKIN'...

Tricking is a huge issue amongst the male populations..
only because we do not know when trickin' is acceptable and when it isn't..

IF YOU ARE GOING OUT AND SPENDING YOUR LAST ON THE LADY YOU LOVE..TRICKIN' IS NOT FOR YOU..AND APPARENTLY YOU LOVE HER & SHE DOES NOT LOVE YOU...no reasonable women would allow her man to go broke for her...NO WAY/DOES NOT HAPPENED.

TRICKIN' IS ONLY ACCEPTABLE IF YOU ARE FINANCIALLY SECURE..ABLE TO MAINTAIN NOT ONLY HER NEED FOR NICE THINGS..BUT YOUR OWN..

I am a strong believer in trickin' when the funds are available..why you may ask..Because when my significant other and i go out..we represent each other, neither one of us can look like sh*t, gotta have the will/jada power couple look..it's only right..

Anyway..I found a couple of pieces online that I think are dope for the ladies for the upcoming season..let me know what ya think
