Exhausted!

Man, I almost killed myself today. I went to Chico Fontaine's family's annual picnic and after eating and mingling, everyone broke out to do some activities. After a pretty hilarious potato sack relay race and a couple other activities, people decided to break out the pigskin for some two hand touch ball.

Now, football is my game! I played most of my life on organized teams. I told myself I wasn't going to get out there and play. The only reason I told myself that is because I recently got out of the hospital and I just SHOULD NOT have been out there. My body needs time to recover, ya dig?

Well, after about 15 minutes of watching, I decided I couldn't fight the itch. I guess much like Amy Winehouse in the line of sight of a crack pipe. Ok, that was tasteless. Sorry.

Anyway, I got out on the field and decided I'd just play quarterback and take it easy. After throwing back to back interceptions, I knew that I could not embarrass myself any further. So, I jumped to my natural position; wide receiver. Then, things got very different.

I was zipping all over the place catching almost everything thrown my way. It felt good to play, but it felt horrible to play. I tried to finish the game, but my body shut down on me. I plopped myself down on the grass and just gasped for air. I took a couple big gulps of water that my wife brought to me but I just couldn't get it together. I felt like I was going to vomit.

I eventually pulled myself up and went to sit in a chair in the shade. I threw a hand towel over my face and I just sat there shaking. It was pretty damn stupid of me. Now I'm exhausted and I'm going to pay DEARLY for my error in judgement tomorrow. :-(

The Game- L.A.X.




You can quote me on this right now.....L.A.X. will be the album of 2008. If Game really meant what he said by saying this would be his last album, then he's going out with a bang. I've been following this guy before he signed to G-Unit/Aftermath and it's amazing to see his growth as an artist over the years. There will always be the haters, but L.A.X. is shaping up to be a classic.

Until the album drops on August 28th, check out these leaks (clean version's, sorry). All I can really say is "Letter To The King" is simply amazing.

Dagnabbit!

Someone broke into my car today. Smashed the driver side window out. They stole my Garmin Nuvi 260 navigation unit and that was it. Man, when it rains it pours. I had already had a pretty rough day and then my wife called me with that news. I should be able to get the window replaced tomorrow but, damn, that really sucks.

Michael Phelps




Is Aquaman. I'm convinced of this. Never before has such aquatic dominance been seen outside of the pages of DC comics. The way this guy just effortlessly flows through the water is insane.

Don't be surprised if one day you see Michael Phelps talking to sea creatures. I said it here first; this guy is Aquaman. Now I wonder what other potential superheroes are lurking out there.......

Jay-Z- Jockin' Jay-Z (Produced By Kanye West) - Full Version HQ


Not to one-up my man Rox, but here is the first official link to the HQ full version of "Jockin' Jay-Z" first heard live at MSG last week. The rumor mills are churning and word is that Mr. West will produce, in it's entirety, the upcoming Blueprint 3 album. If it's anywhere near the quality brought on the first Blueprint, I'm anxiously awaiting.

Dope Boy Fresh (Jockin' Jay-Z) Radio Edit




I don't know if you saw the clip on Kanye's blog of him bringing out Jay-Z to perform a new song from the upcoming album during his return to MSG with the Glow in the Dark Tour. It's a BONKERS track we knew then only as "Jockin' Jay-Z". Of course, it's produced by Yeezy himself. Well, the track made it to radio and you know some savvy fan had to up it to the web. This is radio edit and it's not the clearest in the world, but if you haven't heard this song before. Behold...

MIA & Santogold, "Get It Up"

This track is bananas! MIA and Santogold together on a track, so you already know it's going to be something otherworldly. Not really feelin' the Gorilla Zoe verse, but the rest of the the song is crazy.
