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

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.

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)
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.

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

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 :)
