the year 2005...

jan 20th- gw bush inaugurated for 2nd term

feb- you tube was launched...where would we be without viral videos??

may 17th- Kuwaiti women are granted the right to vote...nice!

july 6th- 2012 Summer Olympics awarded to London....then criticism came about the graffiti-ish logo, i liked it!

oct 19- trials of Saddam Hussein begin... i knew of him since i was little, but didn't realize how "bad" a guy he was.

nov 30- French Surgeons carry out the first human face transplant...think this was that lady. she looked scary but it's quite a feat

(didn't know this: dec 31- Another second is added, 23:59:60, called a leap second, to end the year 2005. The last time this occurred was on June 30, 1998.)

... and a lot of death and bombs ensued. of course a lot of other stuff happened in '05 but a few things i thought i'd share

"From Viral Video to $30 Million Deal"

i was flipping through daily beats' week in culture and came across this video...

apparently fede alvarez, a film producer from uruguay, made the video of robots attacking w/ only $300 (and a year's worth of work), not bad at all! somehow director of spider-man saw this video and offered him $30 milli to do a feature film...can't wait to see what he can do w/ that much money! i've made a mental note to look out for a fede production.

david simon interview

millie jackson-slow tongue

& people talk about over-sexed music today...i have no words for this performance (she's talented though)

behind the scenes of the body issue

i know i'm EXTRA late bc this issue has been out, BUT i thought this video was super cool & worth sharing

wayne interview & bedrock

monique-wayne interview...monique sucks & he's like marble mouth w/ the mumbling. i love how the audience claps for everything do
far too many folks on stage but wayne is hot..drake's a close 2nd! (not sure if there's any correlation, but they also have the best verses)

rihanna- so hard commentary

for some reason couldn't right in same post the video was in.

lemme just start by saying i've never been a huge rihanna fan, BUT something about this song i like, when i saw there was a video i thought cool...after seeing it i thought not so much.

not feeling the army theme. don't like the way everyone is becoming more over the top w/ their outfits bc of lady gaga (i only like when she does it). DON'T like the way rihanna's like super sexual in this video....and guess that's all. outside of that it's ok. glad to see she's trying to make a comeback and put the past behind her.

thoughts?

rihanna-so hard

new cool kids

the monkey

smokey robinson looks suuuuuper young here! monkey may just be 1 of my fav old school dances. enjoy:

kid cudi- nardwuar interview!!! (& n.e.r.d.)

was in a REEEEEEEEEEEEEALLY crappy mood- just really tired, over-extending myself w/ volunteering, tired of being a shoulder for people to lean on, overwhelemed w/ work & the fact that our intern was stolen...the usual :). needless to say i WAS super annoyed, until i saw the following interview via twitter. i heart kid cudi & i think this nardwuar guy is great!




...and n.e.r.d.

13 Most Ridiculous things about Beyonce’s I am Yours Tour

...courtesy of necole bitchie's blog. i found this amusing enough to share...whoever put this video together is great

dame dash...down but NOT out

read about his blak rok project yesterday in the post so i'm anxious to listen to it...came across the following video at complex's blog. apparently some short coming out about a studio/art compound he has in nyc:

FRIDAY THE 13th: A NIGHT WITH THE COOL KIDS and MOS DEF from Creative Control on Vimeo.

seems cool, can't wait to see the full thing. god to see dame still reinventing himself/being productive instead of whining about jay z, lyor cohen, etc. love the cool kids so it's good to see they're still around & mos def is looking hot (& like abe lincoln) as always.

side note: it's always weird when i see people doing illegal things on camera (i.e that drummer smoking weed)...does that incriminate him in any way?? i guess we can't prove that he's actually smoking something illegal, so no right? whatevs

i like big butts...

...so came across this article on daily beast about people wanting bigger butts & stopped to read. it started off talking about the death of solange magnano who dies while in surgery to have silicon injected to her cheeks (not the ones on her face!). then it gets into smoe history, stanley crouch's personal accounts then general opinion on the issue of body beauty. the story was a good quick read, but i found the comments waaaaay more interesting bc some folks were outraged at what he was proposing.

read article & comments here

song o the day: this song used to ANNOY me in my youth bc, well i have a big butt. but i thought it was great when the dancer does the kick to that whipping sound...i've tried to do this move many a time :)

so far so goude

while checking out pics of grace jones (bc i love the way she looks), i decided to wikipedia her...it turns out she had a kid (apollo) w/ french photographer jean paul goude who used her as a muse. while looking around to learn more about him i came across this cool "retrospective" of his work so wanted to share:



ps- not that it matters but i feel the need to clarify my google imaging of grace....i'm collecting pics for a personal project i'm doing w/ cool women. it started off as me wanting to play around in photoshop to do a andy wharhol type colored 4- square pic consisting of nina simone, kelis, frida kahlo & bettie page. (i'll prob still do that since that's my original idea) but i keep seeing cool images i want to put together into some sort of collage, grace jones' face &/or body being the latest. ok, great... glad we cleared that up.

now off to watch fritz the cat movie bc i have the shoes (yea vans)

yulia tymoshenko...best hair

yulia tymoshenko has the BEST hair amongst political leaders in the world...just putting it out there! Ukraine-1, rest of the world-0. here's a huffington post slideshow of her stylish numbers, enjoy!


dame dash speaks on it...

1st beans then jay now dame is speaking out about the situation....so intriguing, wish there was more detail on the who/whats/wheres of the past decade that made everyone fall out!

after watching this i actually like him. prob bc of his graying beard, he's gettnig older. hopefully wiser & more mature :) apparently he loves cam & jim jones (didn't even know they had strife, must look into that when i get home)!

video phone (remix)

soooooo after the MUCH hyped, secret shootings, media buzz the video for video phone remix is finally out. my initial thoughts: it's a beyonce show, she didn't share the limelight, spotlight, even outfit changes w/ gaga. i KNOW it's beyonce's song, but how are you going to have gaga in your video wearing 1 plain white leotard?? it's gaga! plus her gun is like 10 times smaller than b's!

ok maybe i'm being too harsh, so good stuff from the video...her outfits were great! not sure who designed them/who stylist was for video but they did great! (really like the lightening earrings) there were guys (me likes any video w/ cute guys as props). they did 1 of my fav dances, the snap and roll (simple yet effective)!

b is a totally awesome entertainer, but my ONLY prob w/ her is she makes songs for women, videos for men. i like when videos match up somewhat w/ song content. i've seen enough stomach and leotard legs from b for a lifetime...switch it up a bit in 2010 PLEASE!


hilarious snl clip!

it's from 2007, but it's still funny to me. if you get it you get, if not watch the degrassi clip of jimmy/drake then watch ending of 2nd season of oc, then watch this skit again :)



hide & seek (the imogen heap song where this is from) actually isn't that good. this part rocks though...the concept is cool though- all acapella w/ a harmonizer. i need to look up what the song even means bc lyrics are pretty dark

new artist: the moldy peaches

not new per se but new to me :)

forgot i wanted to download the juno soundtrack a looooong time ago...finally took a min to do it. while looking to see which song were on it came to a wikipedia page where it explained how the director of the movie asked the lead actress what type of music juno would listen to. she said moldy peaches. i knew of kimya dawson but didn't know she started out in a band.


according to their wikipedia page they're clasified as indie, but i like my term for them: folksy punkish (which wouldn't make since bc i keep reading they were a part of an "anti folk" movement). not sure what classifies folk, but to me it's something heavy with (acoustic) guitar, slow and story telling- which half of their songs are...whatever you call em they're great and i'm glad i found a new group :)
here's their super cute band site: http://www.moldypeaches.com/

i want a weezer snuggie

awesome marketing... i now want a snuggie, but no not just any snuggie but a weezer snuggie :)




not to be out done...the new snuggie commercial is so absurd it's worth watching!!...apparently snuggies are o great you can wear em to the movies w/o people laughing & throwing popcorn at you. oh & snuggies make you wanna do the cabbage patch & raise the proverbial roof, niiiiiiiiice

Tuesday, November 3, 2009

why oh why

how do blind people get dressed? are the dogs trained to pick out matching outfits too? where do homeless people get wigs from? why is the e in the dell logo so drunk and/or sleepy? why DO rabbits look so disapproving (great book)? why is red dwarf so good? why are some people so greedy that they'll lie, cheat, steal to get more money while the poor get poorer?...i have more but i'll go get to wok now

song o the day: why (jadakiss) for obvious reasons

beanie & jay the cartoon

so apparently it's national blog posting month so bloggers (whether amateur or official) have to blog at least once a day this month as not to be a COMPLETE failure in life :)

please note this is my nov 2nd post...i'm done!

song o the day: kept seeing hype on twitter about this video & i see why. it's not bad, like a grown up rap video... "have a baby by me baby be a millionaire" so catchy!

morehouse changes dress code

sooo read this daily beast article and others about morehouse firming up there dress code. decided it was interesting enough to post on my fbook status saying i didn't agree and it was too strict.

just me or does it seem the status updates you don't think folks will comment on they write 50 million things and the stuff you write to spur discussion you don't get a peep?! things that make you go hmmmm

blackface rears it's ugly head...again


thanks to daily beast i learned french vogue did a spread of dutch supermodel Lara Stone in blackface (that's her to the left with her real skin color). apparently the 14-pg spread is supposed to celebrate her funny teeth & the fact that she's not super skinny (read another article that said she's a size 4...so she's not anorexic, but she's still pretty skinny)...wonder if in the hours of putting makeup on her to brown her up if anybody thought, jeez, we coulda just hired someone this color!...THE QUESTION REMAINS IS IT ART OR DISRESPECT?? i think the latter. especially since there are so many black models that are never even given a shot bc of their color, body, etc.

the daily beast article here

new artist: emmanuel jal

AGAIN my "new artists" are rarely new they're just new to me...went to see the screening of war child last night... SUPER GOOD movie. really open sup your eyes to what child soldiers go through.

the movie follows the life of emmanuel jal who's a super famous rap artists now. in the film he talks abotu his story & camera crews are there when he goes back to sudan for the 1st time. the thing that struck me is that he's aware he has some mental health issue bc he hasn't really vented about his situation & how strong his wit & sense of humor are. i guess when faced w/ unspeakable tragedy, you HAVE to have a sound mind.

anywho the name rang a bell for me bc he's liek a reoccuring voice on bbc's world have your say (my fav thing to do at 1pm...listen to it at my desk). anywho his story is amazing & his music is pretty good...i feel really shallow to admit it, but while watching the movie i was trying to figure out if he's cute or not (terrible i know)...

2009 US Pole Dance Federation Championship

read the title. nuff said.... these girls are super athletic!...wonder if it'll ever be an olympic sport?

so in stlye black barbies & blackface

ummmmmmm so earlier this week heard on the radio that there were really "ghetto" (don't like that word) dolls barbie made w/ big lips & hoops so i made a mental note to look em up...just took the time to do it & yeaaaaaa....what's the issue??

neither here nor there that these dolls were created by an est. barbie designer, who happenes to be a black mom looking to do something for her daughter and lil girls in her community. but i REALLY don't see how these are offensive...and who gave em the name of "hip hop barbies"?? each s.i.s. has a well thought out back story & they come w/ politically correct barbie accessories (i.e. artsy stuff, cheerleading stuff, a friggin violin)

click here to go to barbies site for the new line

if you want to see offensive, let's speak on the australian show, hey hey's jackson jive skit?! i know it was a special reunion show, it was a half hearted tribute, the guys in black face were from diverse backgrounds, it was a satire & money went to charity, but come on! black face will never be funny to me...the dicussion on bbc today was if people take race too seriously & if we should lighten up and be able to poke fun at it. i REALLY feel like before we have more of a "sense of humor" about race, we need to understand and have a serious talk about race relations. we never talk about race UNTIL an incident pops up (i.e. "kramer" & the n word, skip gates beer gate).

note to self: find out what book was in the post a few weeks ago talkign about how white people race their kids to be colorblind to race, which isn't good bc it's kinda like a denial!

i end with this very serious piece on black people & white people:



(nope i don't smoke weed & this actually wasn't the skit i was lookin for but it'll do until i can find that 1)

new artist: Tim William


AGAIN courtesy of twitter's music monday i have a new artist i'll be watching...well he's not really new bc he's the keyboard guy from gym class heroes & kidz in the hall, but he's gone solo. as is the case with all artists here is his myspace page

here's the song i heard this am, "i wanna feel young"...mem likey the video bc of his pjs in the beginning & it contains dancers!

here's a great interview from format mag w him...in some repsonses he sounds liek he has an attitude, but i guess that's what sucks about text you set your own tone as you read it!...i love that he mentions chuck inglish (from cool kids).

new artist: big sean


as it goes w/ life, i was on twitter & discovered something new (again)...a guy named big sean. i follow biggie's daughter & she mentioned him being cute on tv, so had to look him up. he's not very big in stature but that's besides the point. his voice isn't that strong but i like his matter-of-fact-oh, i'm-a-rapper-whatevs delivery in his single: getcha some the video is super cute too.

apparently was signed to g.o.o.d. music by 'ye in 2007 (WHERE have i been) don't feel like going through this kid's bio, so here's his wikipedia page. apparently he went to cass hs in detroit which is cool bc i know a few folks who went there. also here's his myspace.

think people put him in the same class as wale & drake bc he's new but i don't think he's that skillful yet...must listen to him more before i officially decide though.

lastly, here's his freestyle in kanye's tent in kanye's trailer at sxsw last year...btw i HAVE to go this year...btw i think that's cudi getting his hair cut, right?!...h & common & amber rose are in the mix too

Open Letter To Young Warriors In Chicago by NAS

Got the words from the global grind blog. Would be awesome if people could focus more on chicago gang wars and all the school children deaths vs olympic bid

Dear Young Warriors fighting the wrong wars! Killing each other is definitely played out. Being hurt from the lost of a love one was never cool.

Dear Young Warriors fighting the wrong war! I know that feeling, that frustration with life and needing to take it out on someone, any one. But....

We chose the dumbest things to go the hardest for. I remember seeing deaths over 8 ball jackets, Fila sneakers, and name plate chains. Deaths over "he say, she say"!!!!! "I'm from this block or I'm from that block", or "my moms n pops is f*cked up now the whole world gotta pay"!!!

I remember feeling like I was the hardest "n*gga" breathing. And I couldn't wait to prove it. But let's think. What are we really proving?? And proving what to who?? Everybody knows Chicago breeds the strongest of the strong but I just feel, me, being ya brother from another state feels your pain as if I grew up with you in ya very own household.

You have the ability and mindpower to change they way we are looked at. Look who's watching us young warriors, look who's throwing us in jail constantly, look at the ignorance in the world. Look at the racist dogs who love to see us down. Loving to bury us in the ground or in jail where we continue this worthless war on one another.

Young warriors.... We are WASTING more and more time. We gotta get on our jobs and take over the world. Cuz this movie left the theaters years ago, Juice, Menace, Boys n the Hood , Blood n Blood Out, Belly!

When we see each other why do we see hatred? Why were we born in a storm, born soldiers, WARRIORS....and instead of building each other up we are at war with each other.. May the soul of this young person find peace with the almighty. I'm with you young warriors. You're me and I'm you. But trust me! you are fighting the wrong war.

This sh*t sucks!!

-Nas

the back up!

just read a story about a "machine gun social" put on by a sc national gaurd candidate (he was rifling off an ak-47...sad). came across this video while reading & think it's funny so thought i'd post:

also good to see chris breezy coming back strong. plus this reminds me of those 90s vids when there used to be a lot of cameos.

Yogurt isn't as bad as I thought.
(yogurt meaning yoga)

Soooo meant to post earlier, but yoga yesterday was AMAZING! Went to yoga district yesterday fo

r a flow class & it was great. Surprisingly I was able to relax, the women were nice, I felt all revived & empowered w/ girl power! & even today I still
feel not as hunched over & wasn't annoyed AT ALL today at work. Guess all that being still & listening to myself breathe was good for me :)
8:30am. Who really cares?! And nobody makes sure we leave at 5 pm so that's super 1 sided
Omg omg omg about to be late for work! NOOOOOOOOOOO. So stressed right now :( just doesn't seem right that there's THIS much pressure getting to work at

infomercials...nuff said

so just finished lunch where i was reading a post article about an awful infomercial that msnbc pulled after playing just once (1st video)...they also mentioned a tiddy bear infomercial (2nd video) that was pretty bad & apparently had a lady w/ a black eye, so i HAD to check it out:

could never be a politician's wife

kudos to you mrs edwards...larry king's going off topic & getting in family biz. she's sucint & polite...couldn't be me :)



fyi couldn't be the wife of ANY profession where you have to skin & grin (i.e. pastor/preacher, military, famous folks, etc)...i like the path i'm on by keeping it oprah & stedman like. so looking like i'm not going to be anybody's wife, so i guess this post is moot :)

daggering

so i'm late with this news, but not with the dance. daggering is pretty much a harder, more sexual version of booty shaking- think dances in 2nd major lazer vid i posted. due to explicit song lyrics prompting this dance (& fractured penises):

the Jamaican Broadcasting Commission took the unprecedented step of banning all songs with explicit sexual content from radio and television, as well as songs that glorify gun violence, murder, rape or arson. The ban is absolute, meaning that such songs can no longer be aired as “clean” versions that make use of “bleeping.”

here's an old article with more detail

new artist: sweet rush (aka sugarush)

cute girls who do afro pop (is that the proper term for pop music from africa?). here's their myspace, have a listen!

random blog post about them

sidenote: apparently last year there was a small issue over big hair. t.t. wanted answers on the hair style they choose





song o the day: hot sauce & let it go







girl crush: teyana taylor

meant to post this last weekend, but i love her! her sound is great, her style is awesome, her hair is fabulous.

(i feel like such a groupie)... ever since i saw her sweet 16 episode i'm STILL trying to figure out who her parents are... here's her wikipedia page (they don't mention her folks)

i think her big facial features make her look a lil bit older, bc she's only 18. did i mention her style is magnificent? oh & she's a DANCER!! she was in jay's blue magic video & choreographed beyonce's ring the alarm video
here's a post from someone else's blog who likes her...i could literally post pics of her ALL day, but won't. google image her...in fact google her as you listen to her 1st single:

fav part of the video (& song) remains mr west. enjoy:


new artist: the bots

as i do every am, i take a look at all of my homepages (daily beast, current, roll call, bbc world news & wikipedia)

saw their video on current-music & thought it was adooooooraaaaable! these 2 are brothers (anaiah, 12 on left & mikaiah, 16 on right) from glendale, ca. the vocals are ok (think mikaiah), he's amazing on guitar though. the drummer (think its anaiah) is killer! they sound like a baby offspring to me :)

(sidenote: not to be confused w/ the other bots.)

their website is super cute too. i'm also a fat girl so anything with doughnuts= good to me! this typewriter monster bot is from their site too. click here to see it



i like turtles tooo

was looking at video of young white guys playing the choking game...no no not for kicks for work (some one left a question on our message board asking if it was more safe than inhalants)...somehow this video came up! after all these years i still think it's hilarious:

my morning can be explained through like a boss' fbook post:

Stalin is back for another appearance today. Day starts like this: 8:32 am “Is Queshia out today?” Me: “no.” Stalin: “Well, it’s after 8:30 am” Me: “OK (stare blankly back)” Stalin: “This is becoming the norm” Me: “(very irritatedly)No.. she has be...en here on time” Stalin:"First was Mon or was it Tues.” At this point I just stare blankly back.. No expression,no words. Jackass. Go do something constructive...

...and scene! with this we dubbed it "whatever wednesday"...gave it a hashtag & tried to make it trendy (pun) on twitter, but itnever caught on... oh well, there's always next week!

in other news, smoe found a spot in west harlem he liked (and fit the budget) so yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah 4 him :) sucks his departure is getting closer, but he'll be back- he'll visit dc more than i visit up there actually. not me making selfish demands, but to visit his fam & friends too.

mike vick's interview on 60 minutes

soooooo FINALLY saw/heard the mike vick interview from sunday night at my desk (thank god for the internet, eh?!)...the only thing i learned is he still has a nice complexion & i like tony dungy even more!

though he said he "cried in prison because of the guilt he felt about being involved in dogfighting" it didn't look or feel/sound sincere at all! can't really be mad at him bc he knows he needs to do something to start cleaning up his image/rep to help the eagles not take too much crap this nfl season.

Happy Left-Handers’ Day

happy qualen (youngest of 3 bros) day...i mean left handers day! i've been alive 25 yrs, & i've never heard of such a day...till i came across it on twitter. maybe i have, but bc of my bad memory, maybe i just forget.

anywho, thank you twitter for giving me yet another reason why i'm thankful you were created :)

here's a cool article, as sorta an homage to lefties... a lefty dad's perspective on the "condition"

lastly, for more southpaw info, here' a Left-Handers’ Day site

...after all the hype i wish i was left handed now...yea its difficult, but it's like a secret club or somethin!

song o the day: i'm good (clipse feat pharrell)...point blank this song rocks! while listening to clipse last nite couldn't decide if i liked them or just their beats. they always work w/ neptunes and i love beats so naturally i like their songs. haven't actually listened closely to their words to see if they're decent lyricist...guess they have to be though?!

totally 80s... totally awesome

so finally saw gi joe last nite & was complaining that it was cool, but mad they didn't incorporate the cobra theme song- please note not a huge gi joe fan which is why i thought it was ok/good...apparently EVERYONE else thought it was garbage (w/ a capital g).

anywho so after listening to the cobra theme like 5 times in a row (COOOOOBRAAAAAAAAAAA) i came across this video of top 10 cartoon theme songs from the 80's. anytime "80s" shows up anywhere, i'm on it, so clicked on it & it was cool. i only knew like 2 of the songs/themes, but i just appreciate the fact that someone took the time to put this together...

song o the day: my fav song from the top 10 video would have to be, not #1, but jem. she rocks & she's "truly outrageous":

note to self...sci fi

not really a post, more like an fyi to me bc my memory is garbage!

50 Essential Sci-Fi Films from Time Out London

haven't gone through the whole list, yet but judging by some of the nasty comments left from people my hope aren’t high! plus apparently they left blade runner out!
