Don Lemon, Talking Points, and Twitter Love – Plain Truth 83

The Trayvon Martin case has left a polarizing atmosphere within the conscience of America. On one side, you have demands for justice (especially in Florida).

As usual, I take some of Diggame’s questions and answer them. Nothing more. Nothing less. He brings up great rhetorical questions. I just think that they shouldn’t be so rhetorical. And that is where the fun starts!!!

Yo, I made it to number 70 on y’all! Time to celebrate!!

With that said, it is time for me to talk about a situation that is unsurprisingly taking the internet by storm. No, it is not the references to how good Kanye West’s new song “New Slaves” may or may not be. Also, it […]

Musical Memoirs: Wale – Bad

Wale is such the musical conundrum that it tends to be annoying.

Only God Can Judge You? I Disagree: CCL 57

I love 2Pac, but some of his ways and actions have become the bane of my existence. It has nothing to do with him. But, people popularized his life way too much to the point of imitation. Many say imitation is flattery; I say it can turn to social flatulence. When people start naming […]

Why Your Life Isn’t Working (The LA Lakers 2012-13 Theory) – Plain Truth 47

Does Music Affect Intellect? – Chocolate Covered Lies 53

Let it be said: I feel that music is a necessity for living. If you could have asked William Congreve, he would have said music soothes the savage beast (breast). If you ask Mr. Cheeks from the Lost Boys, he would […]
