I was wondering what the hell that #25 meant on Ciara's robe at the BET Awards on Tuesday was, it was a straight up diss to the network for placing her last on their Top 25 Dancer's List. I totally agree, they know damn well that Missy Elliott is not a better dancer than CiCi. However, she didn't say if the rumors were true about her and 50 cent dating. I would be so embarrassed if my woman saw me mess-up my performance by getting caught lip-syncing! I think her and Reggie Bush make a better couple, just my opinion.

You ever wondered why some people...
1. Comb that tuft of hair over, only to see it wave in the wind (older white guys)
2. People ride on E with the A/C blastin and get mad when they're stranded on the
side of the road
3. Go to the grocery store, KNOWING they only have $30 to their name and try to buy
$50 in groceries.
4. Put their signal on WHILE they are making a turn.
5. Buy low-rise jeans, knowing they will have a Muffin Top (not sexy ladies)
6. Go to the Casino RISKING the chance of the lights being cut off
7. Drive fast while its drizzling (slick roads)
8. Lie to ourselves and say I will NEVER drink again, after calling EARL
9. Get to work late and get mad at our supervisor for saying something about it

I've been M.I.A. the past couple of days, but for a very good reason, I was tired as hell! There's a lot to say, so sit back and get your eyes ready. So, as we expected Oden and Durant were drafted 1 and 2 respectively. The behind the scenes action on Thursday night was the real deals! As Durant packs up and heads West, Ray Allen will head east to Beantown and Delonte West and Wally who, will join Durant. Zack Randolph will go to the Knicks, Francis and Channing Frye will head to Portland, but who will they be playing with, exactly! Charlotte Bobcats traded away there 8th pick Brandon Wright for J-Rich! Wow, I wasn't expecting that one. It hasn't even been a month since the NBA Finals and we already have a blockbuster summer. I think for the Warriors it was good move. J-Rich has been plagued with injuries and the Warriors are looking to keep that young, uptempo game up. I'm not sure that Davis can keep up the pace with his nagging injuries, but did you see the 1st round? The only questions that need to be answered is where is Ko-Baby and the "Big Ticket" going? I'm so excited about next season, with all this new collegiate talent, it should be a very good bowl of gumbo. I don't expect for San Antonio to win another title. Teams are making moves specifically to step up and give the Spurs a challenge and I definitely think they will do that!

The thought crossed my mind the other day about all this advancement in technology. I will admit that we've come along way from the Industrial Revolution and 8-track tapes(don't laugh,I know someone still listens to them). Now, you are probably wondering why I have a picture of a kid stuffing a burger down his throat. I did that to illustrate the fact that no one wants to cook anymore, some kids need to be in a Red Flyer wagon because they are too damn big. All this technology is causing some deterioration of the family. Cell phone usage is out of control, the movie and music industries are suffering. Hell, movies nowadays are damn near $10. No wonder why people would rather wait till it comes out on DVD or Blue Ray. We are going text messege crazy now. Hardly any conversations take place, just text me, you know? Look at cars, they are starting to come with refrigeration units for drinks now. If you think that America is large and in charge now, oh just you wait!!. I'm not totally dissing what's out there, just saying that people have gotten away from the stuff that really matters, like the QUALITY TIME FACTOR. Everyone has their own agenda, no time to play with lil Bobby or teach him values. You are whipping out the PDA or something. You wonder why he's building pipe bombs or for little girls, going to physically meet some man they met online. On family trips, some parents pacify their kids with Shrek or Talladega Nights(j/k, that's not for kids). Heck, back in the day, we talked and played games, that real bonding timeon trips. We need to get back to reality and use the technology with sense. Some of you remember the Jetsons, well we are not all that far from it. Like they say, don't let the money make you, you make the money, the same goes for technology. Think about it for a sec.....
Seventh grader Alexis Thompson is the youngest golfer ever to play in the U.S. Women's Open. This is a great accomplishment, but does she really have to go pro now? It's so much pressure for a 12 yr old to uphold. I guess the endorsements are to good to pass up. I just don't think that a persons childhood should be compromised to make big money. I still wish her much success and hopefully the parents will keep her grounded and let her enjoy life.
I just wanted to say a few things, rather give a few examples of stressful situations that we have all been through one way or another. What would you do?
1). For you ladies, getting a perm put on your head and you find out the water had to be turned
2). Being in bumper to bumer traffic, after eating at a buffet. (you get the picture)
3). A novice driver of a car w/manual transmission on a steep incline of a parking garage after a
big play or concert. Right behind you is a $300K Ferrari Enzo.
4. Your car is on E and you stop for gas. You are heading to work and your card's magnetic
strip stop working. You have been warned that you will be terminated if you are late again.
Try to call someone and your cell phone's battery is about dead.
5. Locked your keys in the car, while its storming like in the days of Noah.
6. Car stalls in the middle of say, (Interstate 10 West in Houston), during 5 o'clock rush hour.
Those that live there know what I'm talking about.
7. For the fellas, you in a crowded elevator, next to a VERY attractive female. While chatting
with her, making that 1st impression, one silently slips out of you.

The thought occurred to me as I was on my way to work, why are some females so judgmental with guys. There are alot us men out here trying to make it. Heck, I remember talking to a female at a bank. She seemed very attractive, had common sense, could hold an actual conversation and all that. After I was done at the bank, I went to the bus stop to head on home. I saw her pull up at a light on that same corner. I commenced to wave at her, she looked me dead in my eyes, and mashed the gas. I mean what's up with that. I could be down on my luck just for a few, saving money because gas is high as a giraffe's ***, or waiting on a BIG ($5million) settlement to come in. What ever happen to falling in love with a dude w/a bus pass?

This has been a horrific week. Now you have chris Benoit killing his wife and child, the man in Illinois who killed his three children and wife. If these men are fed up with their women, then divorce them and pay child support! I guess the mentality is, no one will have you.

I've made a point not to write about Paris after the few articles I posted days ago, because it didn't make since to address the issue until she's released. I really hope that she changes and becomes more involved in the community, but let's be real. She was raised with such privilege, Paris really doesn't know how to get her hands dirty! I don't think we can expect much, maybe the occasional donation. Let's see how much money she can rack up over the next week. Remember the Kate Moss cocaine scandal? She was suppose to be dropped and black-listed in the modeling industry, she's on every channel promoting Rimmel of London. The fact is Hollywood loves scandal and we love to write about it. It kind of takes away from our middle-class, suburban lives. So, get ready for Paris Mania!!

Olympic sprinter Marion Jones goes broke - Breaking News - Sport - Breaking News
What a shame, Marion Jones was the fastest woman in the world! Now she's broke, 30, and all juiced out. These athletes need to learn how to invest their money, but when you have an addiction and no endorsements it will run out really quickly.

I saw A Mighty Heart on Saturday and I must say, it moved me! I'm already an emotional personal, but it moved my soul. I encourage all of you to watch it, I know the movies are hella expensive and you'd rather burn it, but it's worth paying your money. If you're looking for a flashy, high-budget action sequence movie,then this is not the movie for you. If you're looking for a passionate, well told story about an American citizen who was caught in the middle of a bigger situation, then you will definitely want to know more. Angelina, will definitely get an Oscar nod for this one. She has this uncanny ability to make everything feel so real, like you were at the table with her. In Girl Interrupted and Gia, I felt the same way. I totally forgot that Winona was suppose to be the star, didn't you?
The director, captured the essence and richness of Pakistan. The people, the culture, and the terror that exists were all displayed in a powerful way. I think there are still so many questions about 9/11 that haven't been answered. I refuse to believe that no one else was involved in those attacks. Why did we go into Iraq to find the " WMD", but Osama was hiding in the mountains. This dude was making videos and shit! He was sending them to the media, it felt like BTK, but only in Afghanistan! Also, the talk amongst black people trash talking Angelina for portraying a woman of color, shut up! First of all, Mrs. Pearl is French and Cuban. So, the Halle Berry and Gabrielle Union talk needs to cease. The role was originally for Jennifer Aniston. Brad Pitt reserved the rights to produce the film through his production company, Plan B. Could you seriously imagine Aniston playing this role? I don't think so, drama is not for her! Have you seen Derailed? The make-up on Jolie wasn't over done, so it looked really natural. Overall, excellent job ma. Damn the naysayers! Oh wow, time to lay it down...
Sorry for the many random thoughts, but check out the movie!
Unfortunately, it only made 4 million over the weekend. If only they could stop releasing these movies that really don't have any substance. Evan Almighty?
Rihanna came out to Entertainment Weekly 100 list fiesta in New York City. You have to give it up, she is starting to become one of the premier beauties in the industry. She came on the scene a few years ago and with a little help from Jay-Z/H.O.V.A./Jigga, she's turned out to be one little cutie. Her single "Umbrella-ella-ella" is still number one, beating out Shop Boy's " Party Like a Rock Star". All I can say is, keep it moving ma!
Poor Rocket, you know the Yanks are desperate when he's coming out of the bullpen!
The marquee matchup went to Josh Beckett and the Boston Red Sox. Beckett became baseball's first 11-game winner and the Red Sox worked over Jake Peavy victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday in a matchup of two of the game's top pitchers.
Red Sox 4
Yes, give it up for the grinders! My BoSox are back on a roll and the Yanks are slipping once again.

I've been trying to hold back from stating my opinions on the steroids subject, but I can no longer do that. First of all, steroids in baseball is an epidemic and it's not just a Bond issue. There has been no charges nor suspensions against him, so why keep hounding on the issue. Do I think that Bonds took steroids, probably. At the same time, we must take a look at all players. Jason Giambi has agreed to meet with the George J. Mitchell and for what? What will this meeting do, other than him giving his own admissions of use. Let's just celebrate the fact that Bonds will break Hank Aaron's record. Before the issue of steroids came about, he was already on his way to Cooperstown! Until the league becomes more vigilant in its policy with firmer sanctions, then the game will never be clean. How do we know that Alex Rodriguez hasn't done steroids, oh because Balco never named him as one of the players. Please, A-rod has gotten bigger and stronger! We can't stain someones record because of accusations. I'm just saying that, there needs to be an overall objective and not singling out just one player. Why can't we just enjoy baseball and let it be! If there is concrete proof that Bonds cheated, then suspend him, otherwise move on! You know me, always opinionated.

Police: Pregnant woman's body found; cop arrested - CNN.com
Like I said on a previous post, lets wait until all the evidence is presented and charges are filed. I'm deeply saddened by the events of 23 of June, a body believed to be Jessie Davis was found. Bobby Cutts is being charged with 2 counts of murder! I was watching the Mike and Juliet Show on Fox and they had Geraldo and another former prosecutor, can't remember her name. Anyway, they kept comparing this case to that of the O.J. Simpson case. I'm thinking to myself are you kidding! The Jessie Davis case is more like Scott and Lacy Peterson. We don't even know the dynamics of all the relationships that this man had. He was rumored to be engaged to this girl named Niki, who was on the show and she really looked like a Hooter's girl looking to cash in, the estranged wife, and Jessie. This dude felt like since he was a police officer, he knew the ins and outs of the system, well you were wrong ass! It really frustrates me when people compare this to the Simpson Case. I'm not defending "Orange Juice", because like most people I believe he did it. The fact that Cutts is a Black man and Jessie Davis is White really is the only comparison you can make other than the charge. The scenarios are totally different. Look, prosecution just needs to continue building their case and throw the book at this arrogant, selfish, and sorry excuse for a man! I would like to send my condolences to the Davis family and may God keep you all.

Remember these ladies, well their back! VH1, will be going behind the scenes as the crew tries to reunite and make a comeback. First of all, why would you want to come back to a era of music that really has no meaning? Second of all, do you want to be remembered as the chicks who came back and bombed? I'm not saying that will happen, because you just might be what the hip-hop community needs. I'm so over the platinum teeth, outrageous cars, strip clubs, and naked women in every scene. My radio stays on 790 and 610 sports radio, because it's just a repeat of the same shit! My suggestion, perform the old school hits in arenas! How many 80's and 90's something listeners are out there? It's your choice, just don't want you to waste your time and get involved with the P. Diddy, because you will definitely not go far. He will be in every video, basically make it all about him, and sample a bunch of music, leading you all to get sued. If you make that move, then bring "sexy back" times 2!

Ms. Lohan has extended her time in rehab, because she's taking her recovery a bit more serious. As reported in other media outlets, she canceled her scheduled birthday party in Las Vegas. What a bad PR move that would've been! You're in rehab and as soon as you get out, off to Vegas for a Vodka sponsored 21st birthday party! I hope this chick gets it together, she better learn from Paris.
I wonder what changes would take place if this merger was to occur. I bet a lot of services on myspace wouldn't be free. Watch out, changes gone come!

Nation & World Pregnant Ohio woman missing without a trace Seattle Times Newspaper
Update: A day old baby has been found in the next county. So police are awaiting the DNA results. Where is the wife of the police officer that was having an affair with Ms. Davis? I believe foul play is definitely a factor. Furthermore, why would Cutts be allowed to take part in one of the searches when he was clearly a suspect for obvious reasons. Let's get all the evidence first and then arrest the bastard if he's your guy. We don't even know if she's still alive, Davis was due to give birth on July 3. My first guess is, the wife of Cutts hired someone to get rid of Davis. She was probably so devastated when the first baby was born. Is Cutts and his wife separated? What a blow to find out that your husband is set to be a father again! I'm sure once everything is said and done, it will definitely be a Lifetime Movie. There's just so many questions that need to be answered, but the clock is shrinking. This story reminds of the Law and Order: SVU episode where they found the lady minutes from delivery and chained to a bed in an abandoned house. I really hope that's the case, the baby and the mother are safe. I feel so sad for the two year old boy who witnessed it all, " my mommy's in a rug"!

This is fresh off the rumor mill. There has been talk behind the scenes involving KG and Stoudemire in a trade. I personally think, it's a very bad idea. Kevin has maintained his desire to stay in Minnesota and McHale has always concurred with KG, but money is the ruler of all things in the NBA! What a way to show your gratitude, Amare was injured pretty much all of 2005-2006 season and he worked his ass off to come back and try to help contend for a title. The least the Suns could do, is show some loyalty to him. He could've stayed inactive to make sure that his body fully recupirates, but he was determined to help Nash and crew. I'm really in disbelief, all I've been focusing on is Kobe and his stupid demands. The off-season is turning out to be one big Hollywood blockbuster! I will keep you updated....
Beyonce was taking a break from her world tour and decided to relax in the ever so fab, St. Tropez. I have to admit, they have really stuck it out. Amidst all the rumors, these two have managed to not give a damn and just keep high rolling. Jay-Z is one of the richest men in music and add a little cajun spice with some dough of her own and you get a powerhouse! You guys know he looks like the mascot for camel cigarettes!
So, I was previewing this new video that has surfaced on the web. Unfortunately, you have to pay 1.99 in order to view in its entirety. Supposedly, Kobe in a supermarket parking lot in Newport Beach, trash talks the Lakers organization as well as Andrew Bynum. He was using all sorts of profanities! I found the Redemption commercial and had to post it, this guy is really full of himself. All the money that has been spent on building his career and fan base, at least those outside of Los Angeles has been a total waste. I'm starting to think this guy is running for office. He flip flops and goes to media outlets, basically on a campaign trail! Ok, so you weren't directly responsible for Shaq leaving! Ok, you were promised a championship contending team! Well, that didn't happen, but no one forced you to renew your contract. Although, you were under the misapprehension that players would be signed that could get you deep into the playoffs.
I mean don't get me wrong I'm not a fan by far. It's not because I don't feel he has talent, bottom line this dude is awesome! So, definitely no hate on my part. The thing that separates him from Lebron and Dwayne is his arrogance and selfishness. For example, if you go to http://www.kb24.com click on camps. The camp tuition is 600.00, which you expect! If you look closer, it says that if you have a number 8 jersey, Kobe will not sign it. What a joke! These parents send their kids to learn pointers and to gain skills from one of the greatest players in the NBA and he has the audacity to not sign a number 8 jersey, which he has worn for so many years. I mean seriously, you're demanding a trade, so does that mean that people can no longer bring a number 24?

I'm a registered Democrat, but at this point I just want the best candidate for the job! In Politics, no one is truly honest, but it's who will win the Oscar in the Best Actor orActress category. You talk about a challenge over the next four years. The problems in this country to me needs to be addressed first, then work outwards. Our security is not up to par, gas is high as hell, vets coming back from Iraq and elsewhere are fighting for the benefits promised to them! We send these people, well kids over there and if they get back in one piece, they have to fight an uphill battle. All the candidates need to be realistic and stop trying to play the I'm on your side, whichever side that is. This election, I encourage everyone to vote and vote for the person that you feel is the best for the job. Seriously, forget their party, but remember their words. How will they change our country? How will they educate our children? How will they bridge the gap between rich and poor? How will they support our troops when and if they come home? So, think carefully and be informed, before making that important choice. PEACE and LOVE

I saw Four on Friday and I was yawning the whole time. I will admit there were some parts that gave me a little hope that things would get better. The movie was trying to appeal more to teens and young adults. The sexual innuendos was really irritating. If you saw the movie, you know what scenes I'm referring to. My son and little brother kept covering their eyes, not that I asked them to, it was what they thought to be inappropriate behavior. I spent a total of 41.00 on food and tickets, which was expected. You can't bring two kids and not expect anything less. I like Spider- man, because it appeals to everyone. Overall, family enjoyment is more important. Jessica Alba, needs to go back to whatever acting school and ask for a refund. She's absolutely hard to watch. The over the top makeup and bad hair extensions was killing me softly!! I'm not to fond of her anyway, since she's being trying her best to scream, "I'm not a Latina" and "Cameron Diaz is more Latina than me". Well you go girl, voice your disgust to your most loyal supporters. It doesn't matter what's your ethnicity as long as you make the top 100 of all guy magazines then hey you've made it, because it's sure not your acting taking you to the top!

The more I thought about the future, the more I became convinced that the Lakers and me just have two different visions for the future. The Lakers are pursuing a longer-term plan that is different from what Dr. Buss shared with me at the time I re-signed as a free agent. I have seen that plan unfold for the last three years and watched great trade opportunities come and go, and have seen free agents passed on. That has led to the Lakers not winning a playoff series. All of that was frustrating in itself, but then, this week to have someone "inside" the Laker organization try to blame me in the media for us not being a contender right now -- that is what brought me to my current position today.
I want it to be clear that I still love, with all my heart, the Laker Legacy. From Mikan to West to Goodrich to Wilt to Kareem to Magic. That will never change. And the support my family and I have gotten from Lakers fans is undeniably the best. I will also always believe that.
But, now there is a new road ahead. I am gonna keep grindin and keep workin to get back to competing for Championships. Sometimes the trek up the mountain is tough. But, I know we'll get there.
