Music of the Moment - May 30, 2010 // Cudi x Chip x LCD Soundsystem


Aight, new Cudi. And this is always a good thing. This time it's featuring Chip tha Ripper and the beat from LCD Soundsystem's new joint Dance Yrslf Clean. Oh yea, and it has an intro from......Christian Bale??? Yea. Dope track. Listen and download below.
Kid Cudi feat. Chip tha Ripper - All Talk

Download: All Talk

Even though I feel like Curren$y raps over the best beats on his mixtapes, I think Cudi raps on the most diverse. First Vampire Weekend's Ottoman for cudderisback, then Ratatat's Tacobel Canon for Heaven at Night and I can't forget the whole A Kid Named Cudi Mixtape.

Still waiting for Man on the Moon II...


I saw this today while I was watching Live Free or Die Hard on FX and it had me weak. YES, this is a real commercial. Could we be any more BEIGE?!? I mean, you kinda gotta know the usage/context of the word "beige."

One More Reason Why Jay-Z is the Man


Gotta take a late pass on this, but I just came across this today. Who's itinerary looks like this: Dinner at the White House with the Obamas, Mexican President Felipe Calderon and Oprah [among others] and follow it up with breakfast with New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and New Jersey Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov?? Oh yeah, Jay-Z's does. And that's exactly what he did last week.

Boss type shit.

[Note: Shouts to Righteous Babygirls for the heads up.]

Nike. Does. Not. Fail.

Nike has released its first campaign for the upcoming World Cup with the Write the Future video. It's a pretty basic concept but what makes it dope is that it shows the impact the international stars have on their home countries. It features appearances from footballers Drogba, Ronaldinho, Ribery, Landon Donovan, Fabio Cannavaro and my favorites, Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo. It also has a handful of appearances from other celebrities which should come as a surprise:
There's also four other short clips that show possible results of this year's tournament. I mean, a great tournament can boost you to international stardom. But at the same time, one bad game could turn you from a worldwide hero to a legendary failure.

When you win...

But if you lose...

Nike does my favorite advertisements, hands down. Can't wait for the World Cup.

[Note: This must have been shot before they announced that Ronaldinho wasn't playing for Brazil. I still don't know what that's about...]

Wizards Get the First Pick. DC is Wallin'

THAT ↑↑ lady is Irene Pollin. That is also her face after her late husband's Washington Wizards secured the #1 pick in the upcoming NBA Draft. It should come as no secret on who I think they should take: John Motherf'ing Wall. It's a no-brainer. You take the guy with the dance every time.
He even had Wilbon and the boys doing it. ↓↓
So just like with the Antoine Walker Shimmy Dance, I was forced to post the funniest of the internet's John Wall Photoshopped photos. They are quite hilarious:
Click this one ↓↓
But I guess since the luck was against the New Jersey Nets and they didn't get the first pick, the funniest of all the pictures is this one:
Sorry Jerz.

If John Wall doesn't go #1, something's wrong.

The NBA Playoffs Have Been the Jealous

As much as it pains me to say, I was rooting for Lebron and the Cavs to win the Championship this year after they knocked off my Bulls but ever since they went out, the playoffs have been BORING. Each round I've found myself saying, "Man, this round sucks but next round bout to be dope." I've been disappointed each time. Take these conference semis for example. Going in, I was thinking both the Lakers/Suns and the Magic/Celtics had the chance to be epic...but I was wrong. There were, however, a couple of highlights from last night's game, such as the death of Grant Hill's ankles:

My Response:
And for your gif image pleasure:


Another crazy highlight was Shannon Brown's near epic/fatal posterization of Jason Richardson:
That picture looks Photoshopped like shit....but it's not.

And the last, and possibly funniest image from last night's game was....AC Green??
He had a striking resemblance to this sketch from the Chris Rock Show:
Even though it's only been one game each, I think the Conference Finals are over and we're set for a Lakers/Celtics rematch. I'm sure that will leave Steve Kerr and all the Suns fans feeling like this:

Is it football season yet??????

So THIS Is Who the Cavs Got Murdered By Last Night???

Word, Lebron?? I got you guys winning this whole thing now that the Bulls are out but I'm gonna need more than 15 points on 3-14 shooting. You're the MVP and it's going to take an MVP-type performance to win in Game 6. You can believe that I'll be front row for this joint, popcorn in hand like:
Game 6 in Boston is tomorrow at 8:00 on TNT. Don't miss it.

It might be Lebron's last game as a Cav...

NBA Throwback: Antoine Walker Shimmy Dance

First off, I am not a Celtics fan. I do, however, like KG, Jesus Shuttlesworth and Nate Rob but other than that, I've hated them for pretty much my whole basketball life. But, if you're in your early to mid 20's and consider yourself a basketball fan, I'm sure you remember the Antoine Walker days. And by days, I mean the times he would hit a three and do his shimmy dance. For example:

This was from his time with Dallas, but you get the point

I was reading Trey Kerby's post about the 20 Most Bloggable NBA Photos and when I came across this one of Antoine Walker ↓↓
it reminded me of all the great Photoshopped versions:

This is proof that internet and Photoshop can be terribly awesome at times.

New video from one of my favorite bands/albums of 2009. The Flaming Lips dropped Ebryonic last year and I've been bumping it ever since. I'm still waiting on the video for Worm Mountain with MGMT but this will do for the time being.

So...Ronaldo Snapped.

It sucks that he doesn't play for ManU anymore but my favorite player in the world had a HELL of a game yesterday. Cristiano Ronaldo went off for a hat trick yesterday against Mallorca. The goals looked like they were straight off a FIFA 10. Just look:
And I found this on YouTube, had to include it. Mainly because Ronaldo's the man and...I hate Barca:

Sorry but Messi, Drogba and Kaka can't compare.

I'm Back...With a Shocked Phillies Fan

I haven't been blogging much lately due to work, work and oh But I couldn't pass up the chance at posting this. Apparently this 17-year-old Phillies fan thought it would be a good idea to run onto the field during last night's game. It was probably the worst mistake he's ever made. Just look:
Fan Footage:

For some reason, it REALLLLY reminded me of this:


I'm back.
