How Far Would You Go For Love

I really needed this.
I wanted to share it too.
view the vid on the page.

thanks, Cartier.


a Hip Hop Hacking

Hip-Hop Sites Hacked By Apparent Hate Group; SOHH, Allhiphop Temporarily Suspend Access

If you ascribe to sites SOHH.com or Allhiphop.com you may have noticed some off-color headlines earlier today. You may have seen some doctored photos and racial slurs in the sites' content. Maybe it alarmed you that that the sites were temporarily suspended. The sites have been hacked and MTV.com has some news on the bit. And as B.O.B. would say "Haters everywhere we go"

For now check out some other blogs and sites for the news you can use:


Commercial Rap

Don't be fooled by the title, I like Pacific Division. They come from the bestcoast and they are on something that reminds of the days of old but they are only doing them. I can dig that. Totally. And this shit just reminded me of the days of dope Sprite Commercials. Like the Nas and AZ joint or the Pete Rock and CL Smooth. Actually this is a lot like the latter.

Better not bring your kids

the count loves to *****......

bert and ernie are mobsters


i like to peruse the greatness that is charlesandmarie and find neat things to tell you guys about. before they had the inside out wine glass and I thought that was kinda sexy but this is something for the morning.

The ON / OFF Mug. Its standard black appearance looks like a pretty boring mug. just the average cup of joe until its filled with you favorite heated beverage and it changes shades. It gets Hot and it the word "ON" appears.

don't you wish we could read women the same way.

oh yes, coffee and lame male chauvinism.
this is the Cali.co.Cool

its better to have loved and lost...

than never to have loved at all.

fuck that i disagree.
i spoke to my father about relationships last night and he gave me one of those corny analogies that end up making a lot of sense. "Its like pruning a plant" he said of caring for a relationship. A relationship takes compromise and will die without it. You have to trim a tree in the right way for it to grow. It loses parts of itself for itself. I can dig it.

damn. what timing!

LADIES: Are You a Jump Off???

MARRIED TO THE MOBB has done it again.
These bitches are ill. (I'm using bitch like y'all do, not like on some obnoxious nigga grabbing your elbow in the club type shit) They posted some shit that you must read. I read the beginning and I started saying to myself, "SELF, You know you gotta share this with the world, right?"

So here it is...
you may just be a JUMP if you didn't know

Are you a victim to the Bootycall? Have you always asked yourself why does your ‘boo’ decide to call you only after midnight, and avoids your phone calls during the day time hours? Have you noticed that your ‘boo’ never takes you out in public? Or have you noticed that he always seems to have sex on the brain other than wanting to know how your day really was? That is because you are indeed that after- hour JUMP OFF! Let’s face it ....we have all been there! And if anyone tells you other wise is a straight up and down liar! As the summer commences in plan...so does the bullshit in regards to dating & relationships. I’ve often wondered what do men really think about when they first come in contact with a woman.

Do they ever notice your sweet smile? - Perhaps
Do they ever take notice of your intelligence? - Possibly
Or is it that most men [and let me stress most men] usually more than likely think about what you might look like naked.? Ding...Ding...right answer! While there is nothing wrong with sexual advances....when do you draw the line and take control of a situation that may become a serious problem in the near future? Believe it or not....women tend to get weak during the initial “Meet & Greet” of an attractive man. And while he may finish your sentence....bat his eyes....and whisper sweet nothings in your ear...you always have to stay in fine tune of what his true intentions are!

And seeing as though we are in a season - where your hair is loosely flowing....your skin is glowing & showing...and your smile is secondary - you may want to switch shit up before you become a victim of a jump off!

Signs that you may possibly be a JUMP OFF:

IF HE LET’S YOU KNOW THAT YOU AREN’T THE ONLY ONE: Believe it or not women ignore this warning sign before the relationship commences in plan. If a man brags too much about how many women are on his dick...please be advised that you could possible be one of his many ‘Jump Off’s’. So please take heed to this warning!

there is much more>>>

The world of phone sex

I'm a perv.
I've never called one of these lines but its just because i also think about things way too hard. like i assume that the chicks on the other ends of these calls would be 7 Feet Tall with 7 Feet. Or mini-men who have crafted their sexy lady tone and will try and fool me into thinking that they are alicia keys. So i don't call. but i've always wondered and now there is a book about this stuff. Author Phillip Toledano calls it Phone Sex. Simple. Its one of those Coffee-Table Books. Conversation starter type shit, dig?

I got word of on it on COMPLEX.com/blog
but prepare yourself...

cuz this book makes that world I imagined into a real place.

here's an excerpt.

“To the caller, when I first answer, I am the inanimate Barbie. They do not know
what I look like, who I am or how I feel. They can only imagine. It is my job to
indulge their fantasies, to convince them that I am not a doll. I am their dream
turned real. I view every question the caller asks me as a command for me to
transform. If they ask if I am blonde, I become a blonde. If they ask how wet I
am, I tell them that my panties are drenched. I respond to every sound the
caller makes with an affirmation, I encourage them, I breathe life into their
fantasy, I carve the doll out of flesh. I do not view myself as this doll, as
the commodity. I am the manufacturer who creates her from the blueprint that the
caller provides me. When the caller comes, it is positive feedback. Like an
architect patting his contractor on the back.”

Obama addresses the haters

I feel like the people can relate...

Haven't we all had our encounters with haters here and there in our attempts to gain the presidency?

Well, maybe not you regular ass civilians but I deal with it all the time boss'n up on these mean streets and what have you.

I'm kidding.
I promise.

Fight The Smears is a Site dedicated to dispelling rumors and ugly-myths about Barack Obama and his campaign. The site takes direct aim at lies that have been told about Obama to allow readers to form more educated opinions about the candidate.

here are a few...

Barack Obama is a Muslim
LIE: Barack Obama is a Muslim

LIE: Barack Obama attended a radical madrassa

LIE: Senator Obama was sworn into the US Senate using the Koran

Barack Obama never attended a "radical madrassa." Watch the video below to learn the truth:
