Eli Porter is Still the Best Mayne. He Deed It...Again.

Yes, Eli Porter is back. Not really but he kinda is. I thought I heard the last from Eli and the Icon Mic Sypher, until, LowEndMarauder posted his MySpace page earlier on Twitter. It almost lead to my untimely death. I got word that he might even be putting out a MIXTAPE. I figured it couldn't get any funnier. And then I came across this:
Eli Porter is still the best mayne. He doin it.

State of the Union '10

President Obama gave his first State of the Union last night and he delivered one of the most dynamic SOTU's to date. His focus during the address were educations, jobs, energy and employment. The speech was both well-delivered and well-written but it also had a number of promises throughout. I hope that we as Americans do our part to help get these goals accomplished mainly because I believe he's the best man for the job. If you missed it, you're in luck; It's on YouTube in it's entirety....or you can just watch it here:
Leave it to Republicans...
And the worst part of the night was the Republican response. They really tried to insult us by surrounding new governor Robert McDonnell with a "diverse" group of "Republicans" consisting of an African American woman, an Asian man, a soccer mom and a man in a military uniform. Could you be more obvious??? #comeonson

Obama time.

Music [Video] of the Moment - January 26, 2009

Cudder is back. That's actually the name of his latest video but it's always good to have some new Cudi. This joint is off of his next album that was recently retitled Cudder: The Revolution of Evolution. You know it's gonna be some more dopeness. Peep the video for cudderisback:

Aziz Ansari is a Hilarious Human Being

I was up on a random night a couple weeks ago at about 1 or 2 am so of course I was on Twitter [because what else would a normal person do at 2 am??] when I realized that me, @JinxTheJerk, @nikkib788, @TwoEZ and @Bouier were all watching the same thing. "Hey Samp, what were you guys watching??" Well, I'm glad you asked. We were all viewing history in the making as Comedy Central was airing the unedited Secret Stash edition of Aziz Ansari's stand-up Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening. Needless to say, it was funny as hell and deemed as an "instant classic." No, seriously. The audio version of the routine was release on January 19th and is definitely worth the listen. But just in case you don't believe me, below is his bit on Cold Stone Creamery [which we all know is crazy] and also parts of interviews from Letterman and Kimmel in which he discusses R.Kelly and Kanye West, respectively. Enjoy.

Aziz on Cold Stone Creamery // Intimate Moments...

Aziz on R.Kelly // Jimmy Kimmel

Aziz on Kanye West and Jay-Z // David Letterman

Yea, try not to laugh.

Bulls Beat Spurs...Officially Streaking.

The Bulls have officially begun to streak...but in a good way this time. We picked up our third straight road win Monday night by defeating the Spurs 98-93 in San Antonio. We've won 11 of our last 16 and are one game away from .500. Despite flu-like symptoms, Derrick Rose had 27, 6 and 3 and Joakim Noah scored the last five points of the game to lead us to victory. Noah playing was even questionable before tipoff but he balled nonetheless. We're headed to Oklahoma City on Wednesday for a shot at 22-22. Bang.
Game Recap:
Damn it feels good to see Chicago up on it.

SOMEBODY Explain This To Me. Please.

Why did I see this on the internet tonight?? WHY???

It sounds like he's saying "Hi I Want My Burrito."
Daddy Yankee, please come get your obese reggaeton son off the internet.

Championship Game Predictions [Better Late Than Never]

Really quick: I know the Jets are already up 7-6 over the Colts but I'm still going Colts/Vikings in the SuperBowl. Ariiiiite.

[Note: This picture has nothing to do with the NFL Playoffs, it's just funny as hell.]

Conan O'Brien Gets the Last Laugh...for REAL.

Sure, Conan O'Brien is getting the short end of the stick from NBC with the whole "Tonight Show timeslot conflict," but he might have gotten the last laugh. [Note: I'm taking a late pass for this because it was from his January 21st episode.] Conan discovered that even though he was leaving the Tonight Show, NBC was still required to fully finance his last episodes. Not only that, but he's also getting $30-40 million from the network to walk away from the show. So you get paid MILLIONS to NOT come to work ANNNND they're gonna pay for everything on your last shows???? What would Conan do?? I'll give you a hint: It's "crazy expensive."

Wasting literally millions of NBC's money while they pay you to do it...?? Gangster.

Conan O'Brien, you sir, have gotten the last laugh.

I'm not gonna say anything. Just watch. #shitsdisguting

Ho. Lee. Shit.

Bulls win. Celebrate.

[Double] Music of the Moment - January 19, 2010

I haven't had many music posts lately so I figured I was due for a double post. A lot of people have been talking about Jay Electronica lately and truthfully, he's had some of the realest hip hop that I've heard in a long time. The strangest part about it is that it seems like people are really paying attention. With that being said, the first video is actually the trailer for the video for his joint Exhibit A (Transformation). This kid Jay Elec really is the truth and this song is just one example. My man Pbbt put me on awhile back and it's been nothing but good music from him since. Definitely worth the listen.

Jay Electronica - Exhibit A

Download: Exhibit A

The other video for today was the next single from the Clipse's latest joint Till the Casket Drops called Freedom. Another dope song, another dope video. EGHCK's for everybody.

Dopeness all around.

Monday, January 18, 2010 College Football All-American Team

LSU Junior CB Patrick Peterson made the All-American First Team

I'm still having trouble letting go of college football. Even with this past weekend's NFL Playoff games and all of the college football coaching changes, I still kinda miss it. Only things to do now are talk about the draft and give post-season awards, I guess. With that being said, here are's 2009-2010 College Football All-Americans:

  • DEs: Jerry Hughes, Sr., TCU; Brandon Graham, Sr., Michigan
  • DTs: Ndamukong Suh, Sr., Nebraska; Brian Price, Jr., UCLA
  • LBs: Rolando McClain, Jr., Alabama; Greg Jones, Jr., Michigan State; Daryl Washington, Sr., TCU
  • CBs: Joe Haden, Jr., Florida; Patrick Peterson, Soph., LSU
  • S: Eric Berry, Jr., Tennessee; Earl Thomas, Soph., Texas
Special Teams:
  • P: Drew Butler, Soph., Georgia
  • K: Kai Forbath, Jr., UCLA
  • KR: CJ Spiller, Sr. Clemson
Note: I chose to use ESPN's All-American list because I agreed with it the most even though, truth be told, I would have had LSU's Ciron Black as an OT, Florida's Brandon Spikes as a LB and Bama's Terrence Cody as a DT. Guess I should have made my own list. For other official All-American lists check these links:

It Was All a Dream...

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today we celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His struggles to end racial inequality and discrimination have gotten the nation and the world where we are today. Even though we have a long way to go for equality, his leadership and determination cannot go unrecognized. Dr. King's legacy was even one of the reasons I chose to go to Morehouse for undergrad. Even though the above quote is my favorite MLK quote, we've all heard and been effected by at least parts of the famous I Have a Dream speech. Here, in its entirety is the 1963 speech:
It was all a dream.

R.I.P. Gaines Adams

Chicago Bears defensive end Gaines Adams passed away this morning at the age of 26. After an accomplished collegiate career at Clemson, Adams was drafted by the Buccaneers with the fourth overall pick in the 2007 draft. He was then traded to the Chicago Bears on October 19, 2009. An autopsy revealed that Adams suffered from an enlarged heart which led to cardiac arrest. His family members were unaware that he suffered from any serious medical conditions. His death was sudden and tragic and my prayers go out to his family. Not only was Gaines Adams a good football player, but he was a good person on and off the field. He's most famous for this play against Wake Forest back during his time at Clemson.
Rest in Peace.

Can't Figure Out a Way to Help Haiti?? Here's One.

I saw on Twitter that my boys @KxG_215 and @JinxTheJerk decided to take the initiative and donate what they could to help the earthquake victims in Haiti so I decided I would too. On you can make donations that will go directly to those effected by the quake. You can enter any dollar amount so please feel free to give what you can. Even one dollar donated is one more dollar than they would have. For the Direct Relief website you can click here and to go directly to the donation sheet you can click here. Every little bit helps.

Lane Kiffin to USC. [Drake Voice] Dahmn...


Lane Kiffin shocked the college football world when he accepted the Head Coaching job at USC, after only ONE season as the University of Tennessee's Head Coach. My stance on this might surprise you. I'm not mad at him. First off, Kiffin is from the West Coast and has coached at USC in the past [2001-2006]. Secondly, with Monte Kiffin, Ed Orgeron and possibly even Norm Chow following Kiffin to USC, who can blame him? Even though USC will be facing sanctions in the near future for past violations, it still might be a better overall job currently than Tennessee. And also, UT's rap sheet isn't 100% clear either. PLUS, and maybe most importantly, would you rather live in Knoxville or LOS ANGELES??? Should be a no-brainer.

There are really no similarities between this situation and Saban's, even though both were pretty shocking. USC is in a different conference, on the other side of the country, almost guaranteed to not play Tennessee. And the major difference is that the majority of his former UT players are not mad with his decision. The real question should be "Why Kiffin??" He was only 7-6 during his time at UT and only 5-15 in the NFL. But I guess the argument against those records is that he didn't have enough time to make a difference. Either way, Tennessee is without a coach and probably wishing they hadn't fired Phillip Fulmer.

Oh well, Geaux Tigers.

[Note: I couldn't write post this without mentioning Lane Kiffin's wife. Py-YOW.]

Saw a "Freedom Isn't Free" Bumper Sticker Today. You Already Know What I Thought Of.

None other than the nationalistic country song Freedom Isn't Free from the hilarious movie Team America: World Police. It's from the creators of South Park, so you know I had to check it out back when it came out. It's a pretty funny movie and if you've seen it would would have to agree. If you haven't already seen it, well honestly, I question your commitment to FREEDOM. Check it out:
Hope you got your buck o five.

Discretion, Greg. Discretion.

Sure, Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy might have just been the starting QB on a National Championship team. And yea, he might be a Rhodes Scholar candidate. But WHY did he think it was cool to pick his nose on National TV?? Camera don't lie, fool.
I'm not saying that I've never picked my nose in public but it's all about DISCRETION.

Bama Wins the BCS National Championship...Yaye. I Guess.


The Alabama Crimson Tide finished off a perfect season by winning the BCS National Championship last night against Texas. It was their first championship since 1992 and they won the game on the defensive side of the ball. By knocking Colt McCoy out after just five plays, Bama's defense was able to load the box and kill the run. Plus, when you have Gilbert Javier Arenas "killing drives," it's going to be hard to get your offense going. Ingram and Richardson played really big. So big, that even McElroy's 59 passing yards couldn't blow the game. [Note: I was also surprised/impressed to find that McElroy is a Rhodes Scholar candidate.] Congrats to the Tide. AND I almost got the score right...almost.

[Note: I didn't include a photo of Alabama or Nick Saban celebrating because I have a strict "No Alabama or Nick Saban Celebrating" Rule enforced on this blog. I'm happy for them, and the SEC, but we're still rivals at the end of the day. At least your fans are proud.]
Geaux Tigers.

Bama vs. Texas Prediction


Let's be honest, it's easy to hate dislike Nick Saban. Sure, he's arrogant, might seem rude and "fun isn't a part of his playbook," but there's one thing you can't take away from Nick Saban: He is a good coach. Point, blank, period. As an LSU fan I'd have to be in denial not to admit that our last two National Championships [03 & 07] weren't the result of great coaching and recruiting done by Saban. That's why coaching is the main advantage that I'm giving Bama over Texas. That and Mark Ingram. The single advantage that I'll give Texas is that they have Colt McCoy and a more experienced team. But we also remember what happened when Florida had Tim Tebow...and a more experienced team. The point of this blog is to be right, not to hope that one of my team's arch rivals is defeated. Plus, I gotta go with the SEC school at the end of the day. Bama beats Texas.

[Note: I'm thinking the score's gonna be around 31-21 Bama.]

[Note #2: I HAD to post this picture just to mess with my boy @martEMCfly]


Couldn't let good ol Nick slide with this one...

Cole...You Stupid [Early-Season] Dumb Athlete of the Year

Yesterday a good friend of mine, @B_5 posed the question:
The answer is "No."

Gilbert Arenas, you are the frontrunner for 2010-2011 Dumb Athlete of the Year for brining unloaded guns into your practice facility as a "joke" due to your refusal to pay a gambling debt?? More along the lines of Plaxico Burress than Dumb Athlete of the Year Alum Carlos Dunlap, an example could be made out of Arenas due to him transporting guns from Virginia to the District. Dumb. He claimed to take them from his home to keep them away from his young children. If you say so. Whether that's true or not will be argued but there's one thing that doesn't lie. And that' the numbers: $ 147,208 per game.

Gilbert Arenas, you are the [early-season] Dumb Athlete of the Year.

[Note: I don't know what's going to ultimately happen to Gilbert as a result of this but I do know one thing: Javaris definitely isn't getting his money now!]

You Can Find Anything on Craigslist...

Seriously. Take me for example. I found a full Rock Band system complete with a guitar, mic and drums for $50. Hard to beat. Some other things might be a little more weird. Por ejemplo...

Craigslist: To the guy doing my wife at my house

Damn son.
And YES, this was real.

My MacBook is Still Broken...This Made Me Feel Better

So yea, my MacBook has been in MacHeaven since right before Christmas. I've been forced to use a PC laptop since then and it is nothing short of wretched. I got spoiled by the speed, amenities and overall performance of my Mac but now I'm confined to this slow, heavy and dark Compaq. I found this video on YouTube the other day and it seemed to distract me from my sorrows...for awhile. It's a parody of The Lonely Island's I'm On a Boat video. If you haven't seen the original, take a late pass and check it out here. After that, peep the version from
I need my Mac back.

Where Were We??? [New Year Edition]

Ok, cue the music. [Fabolous' Feels Like I'm Back]

No for real, cue the music.

I took a break from the blog during December for family time and I'm glad that I did. My brother got married, I had some more job interviews and I was able to spend much needed time with the fam. Mission complete.

Now that I'm back, let the hilarity ensue.
And you know this.
