Anyway...not perpetuate stereotypes, just funny videos that do it. LOL
A friend of mine, and the prodigal graphical genius: Karla aka hustleGRL will be celebrating her birthday along with Day 26, Lokz, and Andreena Mill Thursday July 9th at Circa nightclub here in Toronto.
In town...grab tickets, and come party. I know you know that "Ciroc Obama" line in the new record.

We've just learned Michael Jackson has died. He was 50.
Michael suffered a cardiac arrest earlier this afternoon and paramedics were unable to revive him. We're told when paramedics arrived Jackson had no pulse and they never got a pulse back.

Picked this up in a chain e-mail...had me laughing!
To Maintain A Healthy Level Of Insanity
1. At lunch time, sit in your parked car with sunglasses on and point a hair dryer at passing cars. See if they slow down.
2. Page yourself over the intercom. Don’t disguise your voice. !
3. Every time someone asks you to do something, ask if they want fries with that.
4. Put decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks. Once everyone has gotten over their caffeine addictions, switch to espresso.
5. In the memo field of all your checks, write “For Marijuana.”
6. Skip down the hall rather than walk and see how many looks you get.
7. With a serious face, order a “diet water” whenever you go out to eat.
8. Specify that your drive-through order is “To Go.”
9. Sing along at the Opera.
10. Five days in advance, tell your friends you can't attend their party because you have a headache.
11. When the money comes out the ATM, scream “I Won! I Won!”
12. When leaving the zoo, start running towards the parking lot, yelling, “Run for your lives! They're loose!”
13. Tell your children over dinner, “Due to the economy, we are going to have to let one of you go.”
…and the final way to keep a healthy level of insanity…
14. Pick up a box of condoms at the pharmacy, go to the counter and ask where the fitting room is.

Never owned a pair of Spizike's, but I could walk in these!
Heavily inspired by the Air Jordan IV Black/Cement Grey, this sneaker features a predominately black upper with minimal red accents on the laceholders and sections on the outsole. The cement grey details appear on the straps and side wall. Could this be the best colorway seen on the Jordan Spizike yet? The Jordan Spizike Black/Red-Cement Grey will hit retailers in February 2010 for $175.

No trackball…what?! It's the new an improved Curve, and apparently it uses an optical "trackpad"…you know, like your computer mouse with the red light on the bottom.
I put up the "Tour", rumoured to be dropping soon. However, this might be worth holding out for.

“Launching hits that are popular in the club scene is pretty sweet and all, but until you’ve launched your own branded non-music product, you haven’t really made it in the music business.
That’s why Adidja Palmer, known in the Jamaican dancehall world as Vybz Kartel, went into the rum business. Well, that, and having your own line of premium handcrafted rums is pretty damn cool.
To make sure the bottle was sexy enough for the upscale dancehall crowd, Vybz entrusted the branding to Project 13, who knows sexy. We also know a little something about logo and label design, plus the printing and production processes, all of which helped us tackle the challenges of designing branding for a rum bottle with no flat surfaces. Undaunted, we developed a unique shoulder wrap and neck label featuring a contemporary VYBZ logo that instantly lets discriminating rum drinkers know they’re in the presence of a premium product.
Organic line work and a regal seal of excellence ensure an elegant look, while the incorporation of a small hummingbird in the design gives a nod to the rum’s Jamaican roots. We also designed with function in mind, as each label must be hand applied and numbered during bottling, a slow and exacting process appropriate to the slow and exacting process of making the triple-distilled silver rum and handcrafted oak-aged rum that are the pillars of the Vybz brand.”

LOL I've never heard of this until today, but apparently it's something of a cult phenomenon. Various Youtube videos chronicling the successful orders by name. There is even a Myspace page!
I'm going to try this tonight...who knows, it may replace my "Mini Mac" (Double cheeseburger, dressed with only Big Mac condiments) as the on the cheap sandwich of choice.

My first listen of J.Cole left a lasting impression, and with a continued listen I grew more impressed. I have to agree with Complex's Lupe Fiasco x Ghostface x Nas comparison, not to mention the Jay-Z co-sign, as well as the only rapper on Roc-Nation doesn't hurt the buzz either. The layering of ambitions, and inhibitions

This Valentino creation is barely recognizable as a handbag at first glance, depending on what you're wearing it might just come off as a ruffled accent on your outfit. Ruffles abound in supple nappa lambskin in a solid shade of slate gray. Leather swims in loose swirls around a large spiral rose in the center, plus woven detail secures the double handles and the interior is lined in pretty black silk. Snap closure and one interior zip pocket round out the basics on this Rose Leather Tote that sells for $2,395.
Jen, Cherry...please forward your sizes!

On the day it was confirmed that Rihanna was subpoenaed to testify against ex-boyfriend Chris Brown at a June 22 hearing into his assault case, the "Umbrella" singer hit the town with friends – including Aubrey "Drake" Graham, the Canadian rapper to whom she's recently been linked.

Robert Rodriguez should be able to not let this become something like the Flintstone's live-action move! Though I did like Halle...
Robert Rodriguez has a lot on his directorial plate. He’s rebooting the “Predator” franchise, he’s gearing up for another go at “Sin City,” he’s pushing forward with a “Grindhouse” spin-off called “Machete” and he’s prepping the sci-fi thriller “Nerverackers.” So we were pretty surprised to hear during a recent conversation with the director about one project he’s hoping to launch as soon as next year: a live-action adaptation of “The Jetsons.”
Rodriguez’s updated take on the futuristic ‘60s-era cartoon has been rumored for awhile, but with all of the other films that Rodriguez is attempting to undertake it seemed quite possible that an ambitious new “Jetsons” would remain on the backburner. Not so, as the man himself told MTV News.
“I’ve been developing [The Jetsons] for awhile,” Rodriguez said, adding that he’s hoping to start shooting “next year.”
While the director did confirm that the film would be live-action, he was predictably mum about other details. Adam F. Goldberg (”Fanboys”) penned an early draft of the script, but it has since been reworked.
“We’re writing the script right now,” Rodriguez said excitedly, before declining to drop any hints about the plot or potential casting choices.
So there you have it. “The Jetsons” is gonna happen — and a lot sooner than you probably thought. And we’ll just be left to speculate about potential casting choices for George Jetson, his boy Elroy, daughter Judy, Jane his wife, as well as George’s ill-tempered boss Mr. Spacely and the family’s robot housekeeper Rosie.
I heard this over the weekend, and had to post it. Ontario native, Ryncologist throws it down majorly on this mixtape. Never thought a Russell Peters sample could work so well LOL

Coming in at $99 apple really is positioning itself to flood the game the iPhones. I'm blackberry man myself, but I do love my iTouch. The Storm really is no challenge when it comes to the touchscreen ability of the apple device, and with growing popularity of the computers of laptops its hard to see the hype being curbed.
Details for us Canadi'an'os:
Okay, listen up. There’s a ton of Canadian BGR readers out there so we’re going to spend a moment letting you know what the real story is with the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3G S in the Great White North. Both Rogers and Fido will be carrying the new iPhone 3G S and just like in the US, it will be available as of June 19th — same pricing, too — the 16GB model going for $199 and the 32GB model going for $299. On the same day, the price of the iPhone 3G 8GB will drop to $99. Furthermore, the 6GB/$30 iPhone data promo will be back in full force (albeit for an unspecified limited time). iPhone users can tether as well, provided their plan offers 1GB or more of data which is fair enough because if you’re still on the 500MB plan as of today, you’re pretty much a sucker (we kid, sort of). As for MMS, a new iPhone value pack has the feature covered and will be offered when OS 3.0 launches on June 17th. This brings us to perhaps the best news — if you already have an iPhone 3G from Rogers or Fido and are not eligible for an HUP to snag an iPhone 3G S, you will be able to purchase one with no-contract pricing.
I’ve been talking about The Hangover with pretty much everyone that has seen it, and going over the funniest lines from the film…I quickly realized that most were courtesy of, or worked because of dialogue provided be the character Alan Garner aka Fat Jesus aka Zach Galifianakis
So without any further ado, and in no particular order the memorable quotes:
Alan: I’d like to…I’d like to say something…something I prepared. Tonight…
How about that ride in? I guess that’s why they call it Sin City (hahaha)
You guys may not know this, but I consider myself…a bit of a loner. I tend to think of myself as a one man wolf pack. But when my sister brought Doug home, I knew he was one of my own. And my wolf pack, it grew by one. So were two…so there was two of us in the pack. I…I was alone first in the pack, and then Doug joined in later.
And 6 months ago, when Doug introduced me to you guys. I thought…wait a second, could it be. And now I know for sure, I just added 2 more guys to my wolf pack. 4 of us wolves running around the desert together, in Las Vegas looking for strippers and cocaine. So tonight, we make a toast!
Phil: Alan you’re the man!
Alan: You are too Phil.
Alan: Can I ask you a question, do you know if the hotel is pager friendly?
Lisa: What do you mean?
Alan: I'm not getting a sig on my beeper.
Phil: We should come back next week, take the whole city down.
Alan: Oh, I’m free next week
Stu: Or we can just focus on getting Doug back. Right now!
Alan: Oh you know what, next week is no good for me. The Jonas brothers are in town. But any week after that is totally fine.
Mr. Chow: I had 80 thousand dollars inside! And this one, nothing!
Alan: Hey! There are skittles in there!
Stu: Why are you peppering the steak?! You don’t know if tigers like pepper.
Alan: Tigers love pepper. They hate cinnamon.
Stu: Eww Alan, did you just eat sofa pizza?
Stu: She is wearing my grandmother's Holocaust ring.
Alan: I didn't know they gave out rings at the Holocaust.
Stu: What’s on your arm?
Phil: What the fu*k?
Stu: Jesus, Phil you were in the hospital last night?
Phil: I guess so…
Alan: Are you okay?!
Phil: Yeah Alan, I’m fine!
Alan: The “Doug” were looking for is a white.
Alan: Hahahaha driving drunk! Classic! Hahahaha
Alan: Can you ask you another question…
Alan: You probably get this a lot, this isn’t the real Caesar's Palace is it?... Read More
Lisa: What do you mean?
Alan: Di..uh..did Caesar live here?
Alan: Didn’t think so.
Phil: You’re not really wearing that are you?
Alan: Wearing what?
Phil: The man purse…you’re actually going to wear that? Are you guys just fuckin with me?
Alan: This is where I keep all my things. I get a lot of compliments in this, plus it’s not a man purse. It’s called a satchel, Indiana Jones wears one.
Alan: Hahaha Doc, none of us can remember anything from last night. Remember?
Stu: So…ah, you sure you’re qualified to be taking care of that baby?
Alan: What are you talking about, I’ve found a baby before.
Stu: You’ve found a baby before?!
Alan: Coffee bean.
Alan: Gambling? Who said anything. It’s not gambling when you know you’re going to win. Counting cars is a fool-proof system!
Stu: It’s also illegal!
Alan: It’s not illegal, it’s just frowned upon, like masturbating on an airplane.
Phil: I’m pretty sure that’s illegal too.
Alan: Yeah maybe after 9/11 where everybody gets so sensitive. Thank a lot Bin Laden!
Stu: Oh my god! You just nailed the baby!
Alan: Are my glasses okay?!
Stu: Your glasses are fine. Dick!
Phil: Alan, you okay?
Alan: Im just worried. What if something happened to Doug, something bad!
Phil: Ah come on, you can’t think like that.
Alan: What if he’s dead. I just can’t afford to lose anybody close me again. It just hurts too much, I was so upset when my grandpa died.
Phil: Oh I’m sorry, how did he die?
Alan: World War 2
Phil: Died in battle?
Alan: No, he was skiing in Vermont. It was just during World War 2
Alan: Whoa! I’m with you I’m with you!
Mr. Chow: You gonna fu*k on me?!
Alan: Nobody is gonna fu*ck on you! We’re on your side! I hate Godzilla…I hate him too! I hate him, he destroys cities! Please! This isn’t your fault, I’ll give you some pants!
I love this photo.

I’ve got something very special for y’all today. This is an EP by Canadian singer/songwriter/vocalist Graph Nobel, produced entirely by Malik Worthy. You may know Graph from her work with Idle Warship (along with Talib Kweli and Res), or her songwriting credits alongside The Neptunes, N.E.R.D., Esthero and more. She is currently working with Pharrell on new projects and preparing to tour Europe with Idle Warship. This EP is comprised of five great songs that touch on love, loss, hope, and living life. Just great music. Enjoy!!!!

Saw this last night...never expected to see a theatre so packed on a Monday night! Anyway...this movie is truly hilarious! With a sequel already planned, I'm thinking consecutive #1 weekend numbers. You do have an online option you can exercise as well: Dream Stations

Alan: "I didn't know they gave out rings at the Holocaust."

LOS ANGELES — Hollywood had a bigger hangover this weekend than expected.
The Warner Bros. comedy "The Hangover" drew larger audiences than earlier projected to raise its weekend ticket sales to $45 million, about $1.8 million more than the studio estimated Sunday.
That made it the No. 1 draw for the weekend instead of Disney and Pixar Animation's "Up," which came in second with $44.1 million. Sunday studio estimates had "Up" edging "The Hangover" by about $1 million.

This may be how I spend this upcoming weekend!
GFE is five days in the life of an ultra high-end Manhattan call girl who thinks she has her life totally under control. She feels her future is secure because she runs her own business her own way, makes $2000 an hour, and has a devoted boyfriend who accepts her lifestyle. But when youre in the business of meeting people, you never know who youre going to meet.
Shot in a an artistic cinema verité style, the ups and downs of GFE's story line are less compelling than the very credible performance of award-winning adult film actress, Sasha Grey, as a determined young woman that has managed to achieve success as an upscale escort without any apparent loss of dignity, but clearly at the expense of her ability to feel anything deeply, be it with her clients or in her personal life. In an uncomplicated way, the film makes a provocative point about the more subtle costs of switching off aspects of our aliveness (i.e. our caring) to get ahead.
I'm thinking I can take cues a go heavy this Caribana with "YAADI" etched in the side of my joint! No? Okay than.
I wanted to find the answers. So when Jon Meacham asked me to guest-edit NEWSWEEK, I jumped at the chance, particularly because my guest editorship at Mature -Honeys fell through. I guess my photo essay of sexy housewives reenacting the Battle of Fallujah was too "real" for them.
After Mr Wichai (Tao), aged 24, from Samut Songkram province, who earns his living by dealing in old goods, got married to gorgeous twins Ms Sirintara and Ms Thipawan 22, he vouched his sincerest 'equal love' for both of them!
Mr Wichai, just yesterday, got married in a grand ceremony to both twins simultaneously.
On being interviewed by Thai Rath reporters, Mr Wichai declared wholeheartedly that he didn't see much problem in having to perform tiresome marital duties with two wives.
In the engagement ceremony before the wedding, Mr Wichai successfully offered a dowry of eight baht of gold and 80,000 baht EACH for his lovely darlings.
Both families celebrated the marriage with joy and were said to be delighted for the threesome.
Mr Wichai told the press that he had been best of friends with his neighbouring twins since they were children.
“10lbs. 197kts. Very very real I don’t know what fake feel like.$410,000. Hola señor recession proof. With 32 cars.Oldest child 5 and already got 4 million in her own account.I dont do dumb shit like this till I know the fams good. So don’t judge me frm what I buy.Judge me frm what I do.Cuz it’s so many artists that put themself before their family.but thanx yo - T-Pain”
