Vinyl -- Cheech & Chong "Los Cochinos"

So in short, my dad has a large collection of Vinyl albums from "back in the day". Ever since I could remember he's told me to be careful with them because of how near & dear they are to his heart. 
Well I was careful...but only because the collection contained TIMELESS music & TIMELESS artwork.
With that being said, I'm also a very nice guy. 
So with that being said, from time to time I'm going to be sharing something TIMELESS from his collection.

Continuing our tour of "Back In The Day" listen to Basketball Jones below
I need, I need someone to set a pick for me at the free-throw line of life
Someone I can pass to
Someone to hit the open man on the give-and-go
And not end up in the popcorn machine
So cheerleaders, help me out

B.o.B - Bet I ft. T.I. & Playboy Tre [Official Music Video]

I give this the award for Best Graphics in a video.
The video will most likely be nominated for video of the year in some award show. 
Besides that B.o.B has a very bright future ahead of him. 


Black Squirrel

So I'm sitting at my laptop looking out my patio door & all of a sudden I see this BLACK squirrel remove an Almond Butter(its like peanut butter, but better) canister from my recycle bin & proceed to carry it up the tree like he bought it. 
It was funny as hell honestly, due to the fact he kept looking @ me like he knew he was doing something wrong. 
I have love for all my black folk/creatures trying to eat, so I let him have it. 

(yeah its pretty random, but I bet you it was for a reason)

Shitty Deal

Yesterday, our state Senator (Carl Levin, Dem, Mi), grilled the shit out of the Goldman Sachs executives on Capitol Hill. The executives are under investigation by the SEC, for potential fraud. Goldman Sachs, recorded profits of more than $4 billion while the economy tanked, by betting against (taking the short position) the mortgage and housing industry. Goldman Sachs' Shitty Deal....

America The Story of Us — Faces of America — Videos

America The Story of Us is an epic 12-hour television event that tells the extraordinary story of how America was invented. With highly realistic CGI animation, dramatic recreations and thoughtful insights from some of America's most respected artists, business leaders, academics and intellectuals, it is the first television event in nearly 40 years to present a comprehensive telling of America's history. Elaborate, ambitious and cinematic, America The Story of Us will take you into the moments when Americans harnessed technology to advance human progress, from the rigors of linking the continent by transcontinental railroad--the internet of its day--to triumphing over vertical space through the construction of steel structured buildings to putting a man on the moon. It is an intensive look at the people, places and things that have shaped our nation, and the tough and thrilling adventure that is America's 400-year history.

Rai Knight -- Sweet Ana Mae

Sweet Anna Mae is a glimpse into the fantasy world of a young lady chasing her dreams. She aims
high, but sharing her talents with the world is much harder then it seems.

Anna Mae knows, to get what she wants means fighting through her fears and giving her all at every crucial moment. She knows, as far as talent is concerned, she's got what it takes, but it takes a whole lot more soul searching to keep her composure when the world starts to watch.

Anyone striving for a dream can relate to Sweet Anna Mae, it's safe to say that we all have fears to overcome. Your heart will know the way when the time is right!
