Last Invite 4 Glasses of Insight

See I don't have a baby


won't apply to me

but since your average male

classifies me

as female

would this entail

that I'm (a) FILF?

Untainted Politicians are the new B-l-a-c-k

(Being that we are only used to sheisty egotistical politicians, I guess honest trail blazers are dull)
Say hello to "low key" guy, Roland Burris. He was recently appointed by 80s hair wearing hustler/governor to fill in Obama's vacant seat which has already ignited debate amongst senate leaders.
Silently working for change in Illinois for over 40 years, Burris has broke racial barriers by becoming the first African American comptroller from 1979-1991 and the state general from 1991 -1995. He is without a doubt a genuine maverick for abortion rights, gay rights, minority rights, and the overall the well being of Illinois.
For someone has has no skeletons in his closet and is simply an honest man just trying to better his community, the Senate would be ludicrous is they reject his appointment!
They lucky I'm not in the Chi!

I'm am far from being a film fanatic, but lately I've been on a quest for power films during my break. I was so intrigued by the previews of Slumdog Millionaire that I actually made the effort in seeing it. And let me just say this has to be one of the greatest movies I have seen in a good minute!
The plot focuses on 18 yr old Jamal Malik who is a contestant on the Hindi version of "Who Wants to be a Millionaire". I don't want to give away the movie because the dynamics will be stripped away if I go into detail about why he is on there and its connection to his life story which unfolds through each question he is to answer by means of flashbacks and recollections of his turbulent upbringing.

People go see the film, it's worth the overpriced ticket!

Biggest Fraud in History?

Nah more so biggest fraud affecting the wealthy in history.
The reparation scheme was the biggest fraud.
Yes I went there.

So the A-list celeb on Wall St, Bernard Madoff, was arrested yesterday for conjuring up one of the biggest frauds in history. This guy racked in $50 BILLION in fraudulent investments.Madoff can face up to 20 years if convicted. This case has been defined as a Ponzi Scheme. I wasn't familiar with the term so I did some research and found out that it is a swindle operation that involves promising or paying ridiculously high profits to investors out of the money paid in by subsequent investors, rather than from net revenues generated by any real business. The profit is high and short term with the intent of bringing in a flow of new investors. The money must continue coming in for the scheme to be a success though as the investor count increases, the faster the scheme collapses.

I knew it was called Wall St. for a reason. A blockade is the only way to hide shady business.

America's bank volt just got infected with a EFI (economic fraud infection)
We saw it coming though.

PS- RIP Bettie Page

Not Food 4 Thought but a Tall Glass of Insight

Being Fuel Positive in the USA

You and your
2 and 4 door
are being pimped and infected
by these gonorrheic gasoline
premium diesel or regular
they all rancid and recycled
yet people still
line up like unemployment
lookin’ for a blow or hand job
damn you enjoy riskin’ your
economic health
all for a car?
I thought I was writin’ this
Fresh kicks
But this epidemic is serious
As an advocate for protection
America,invest in some foot, bicycle, or MTA contraception

Inspiration: Brian DiNonno's "Slave to the Grave"

Who Likes Apple Juice?

I could nike dunk myself in the face for discovering this ill album almost 2 MONTHS after the fact!

So check it, Apple Juice Kid has remixed some of Miles Davis' classic tunes by adding pinches of that savory hip-hop flavor to it without OD-ing on it. This mixtape is reminiscent of Madlib's "Shades of Blue" , another classic hip-hop jazz remixed album. This the kind of album you can vibe too while doing cleaning your place, doing papers, or simply chill out to. Trust, I'm zonin' out to this as I type this post and complete these last few assignments of the semester!

Humpday Festivities...

So my final ends at 3:30 and my last one isn't until Friday. I haven't been to a show since Jill Scott was in BK this past August, and that's kinda unhealthy for me, musically. So, me and my buddy 5th Avenger will be in the building. Those in the NYC area who are interested should hit this up

Video De La Dia

This is one of my favorite songs off of Q-tip's new album, The Renaissance. The track is entitled, "Move", and just by its title and the ill "Dancin Machine" sample produced by the late grrreat Jdilla, you will be movin'! Listen, I can't be all stiff when this track is oozing out the speakers! This is the kinda song that makes me wanna be on a skating rink even though I ain't the greatest or have just bop down the street with some
ENORMOUS headphones

The video has an 1982-83 feel to it simply because it's reminiscent of "Rock With You"
Check it out People!

Cops keep degradin' us in our environment

So Michael Mineo was assaulted and sodomized by three officers in the Prospect Park subway station in BK on Oct.15. The weapon of choice was in the form of an officer's baton. It was announced yesterday that the officers will be indicted on these charges as the case continues in the upcoming days. One officer came forward and said he saw the ring leader, Richard Kern, assault Mineo with the baton. Even a transit officer, witnessed this grotesque form of brutality. However, Kern CLAIMS he did nothing wrong, but yet this dude was accused and acquitted of course of excessive force back in 2007. And one of his "comrades" claims that he did not use the baton as an act of sodomy but "placed" or "pushed" it against his buttocks.
C'mon are they freakin' serious right now?! So what sodomy is now synonymous to brutality which is all ready bad enough?
To be blunt with ya'll it won't be a surprise if they are acquitted. But I'll keep you posted on any updates

World AIDS Day: A Conscious Celebration

Celebrate by thinking to yourself... How can I help?
Celebrate by protecting yourself for the sake of your own heath as well as your partner and loved one's.
Celebrate by becoming more educated on the seriousness of this epidemic and how it is massacring adults and children by the thousands
(not just in Africa but here in the U.S. even your own city)
Celebrate by empowering those who are incognizant of this critical issue
Celebrate by sending a financial donation to AIDS research and sanitary/effective HIV facilities around the world
(any amount is is better than nothing)
Celebrate by writing letters and signing petitions to politicians arguing to make this issue one of their top priorities


Celebrate by paraying, wishing, and hoping that this EPIDEMIC will find its weakness... A CURE!
