“…or a whole buncha mu’fuckas!” –Tasty Taste (played by Larry B. Scott, center), Fear of a Black Hat
Peep the article about the movie at the site I stole the pic from here.
I had a grand ol’ time with the ranting and raving of my last entry, but I think it’s time I went for another random post.
This one is just stuff I’ve been pondering, mixed with little updates and random factoids.
1- So I did a lot of pondering about the entry I put up yesterday. I got a ton of good feedback and I’m looking forward to trying some advice out. The general theme is that I need to quit trying so hard, quit going after silly ass girls, and not bust out the Emo until I find a girl that actually deserves it. “Rey’s Conscience” & landLORD had some particularly good points in specific, but all feedback was helpful.
2- I saw American Gangster tonite. Unlike the apparent majority of you guys, I waited until it was in the theater to see it. Watching a bootleg DVD or seeing it on my computer screen just wasn’t gonna do. Honestly, shame on ya’ll. Anyhoo, I loved the movie. I dig flicks with good casts–and I was down for seeing it even before I peeped the trailer and had Heart of the City get me amped up for the film. Denzel was, of course, awesome. I thought Russell Crowe did a good job playing the not-so-straight arrow cop (as in morally straight arrow, no subliminal “Ayo”). I’d love to see some Oscar nominations for this movie, but who knows if the MPAA will recognize it.
3- As for Jay-Z’s American Gangster concept album, I’ve still only heard 2 songs off of it, Blue Magic and Roc Boys. I like both of them, and the accompanying videos for both tracks are awesome–Roc Boys in particular. I plan on copping this album, and most likely AG’s actual soundtrack, Thursday or Friday. Which meeeaaannns you guys can expect a review of Hova’s album sometime this weekend.
4- Random Fact– I love bottled water. Seriously. No nasty-ass Vitamin Water or Gatorade or any of that. Gimme some Poland Spring and I’m good.
5- Dr. Beardhussein’s Brunette Can-Get-It List- Mary Elizabeth Winsted (Live Free or Die Hard, Grindhouse’s Deathproof installment), Rachel Bilson (The OC, The Last Kiss), Sophia Bush (One Tree Hill, John Tucker Must Die), Anne Hathaway (Havoc, The Princess Diaries, The Devil Wears Prada), and finally, Katharine McPhee (2006 American Idol runner-up).
6- Brunettes I Used to be Crazy About- Neve Campbell (Scream Trilogy), Katie Holmes (Batman Begins, Dawson’s Creek), Jennier Love Hewitt (The Ghost Whisperer, I Know What You Did Last Summer series)
7- Random Fact– My ringtones right now are: Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing for text messages and Your Love by The Outfield for calls. Both are songs this cover-band I like happens to…um…cover. For a while, Kanye West had both spots on lock: Can’t Tell Me Nothin’ for texts, and Stronger for calls.
8- Jim Jones is a fucking idiot. This asshole gets a one hit wonder song with We Fly High, and thinks he’s a big deal. His album drops and he assaults Jay-Z for some shine, and then believes that people actually give a shit about him. Now, he just signs this ridiculous deal that he won’t be able to live up to, and when Jay has another album dropping, he attacks him some more. Jim Jones is fuckin’ pathetic, plain and simple. Dude knows his career has peaked with his little novelty hit, so he resorts to getting shine by jumping in Jay-Z’s spotlight. Amazing. Give it up, Capo. You’re embarrassing yourself. Shogun of Harlem Sho’Nuff > Dirt Angel.
9- The Knicks are 2-1 after beating Denver tonite. I’ve made it known that I hate James Dolan and Isiah Thomas, and that I think Stephon Marbury is an idiot. I’m just hoping the rest of the team plays hard enough [||] for me to start giving a shit about them. From the 1992 NBA Playoffs all the way thru mid-2006 I was a Die-Hard Knicks fan, but after the Larry Brown debacle I became disgusted with the entire organization. It used to be that anything less than an exciting playoff run would be huuuge disappointment, but honestly, nowadays all I want to see is some hustle so I can respect the team again.
10- In the order that I’m looking forward to hearing them: American Gangster > The Cool > The Greatest Story Ever Told > Nigger > 8 Diagrams. Seriously, if Nas actually does drop The N-Word in 2007, this year’s fourth quarter might be better than last year’s when Diddy, Game, Nas, and Hov all dropped.
