THE DOPE SHIT: Alessi Watches

I just got one of these yesterday as a gift. I first saw this watch at the MCA store and just knew I had to have one, italian design and exceptionally dope.

Peep their site for more merch:


Sad news for such a young great actor. He was set to star in this summer's Batman movie as The Joker. He will be missed

LIBERATION: And the award goes to....

This morning I woke up to news of this years Academy Award nominees I must say Im happy No Country for Old Men got major nods, along with Vigo Mortossen for Eastern Promises and Ruby Dee for American Gangster. But after Kathy Bates and some Academy head finished the announcements. My excitement turned sour as I came to realize that one movie had been completely and suprisingly absent from the nominees. THE GREAT DEBATERS. Correct me if Im wrong but normally the movies that tend to get the nomination are end of the year hits. Which the Great Debaters was even though it had a slow opening at the box office. But this movie was critically acclaimed, its not a review I read that didnt give it four stars. I was going to write a review for the Pub Report but it was already written before my hands could touch the keyboard. Thats how much it inspired people. This was an important film, and a very good one at that. Im starting to think politics played a role in this, seeing how its produced by Oprah, but maybe Im crazy. Im not trying to discredit any of the other nominees from what I saw they were all good films, im still excited to see There Will Be Blood which I think will compete heavy with No Country, with Atonement maybe popping up somewhere in there. But there could've been room for one more.

Take back your righteous mind, and go see the movie if you havent already

LIFE: Gondry in The Apple Store

On Tuesday I went to check out fellow filmmaker Michel Gondry at the Apple Store. He was showing new clips of his new movie Be Kind, Rewind starring Jack Black and Mos Def. The movie is going to be hilarious.. they (Black&Def) have to remake all these classic movies (ghostbusters, rush hour, driving ms. daisy) after they get magnetized. It hits theatres Feb. 22

Life is good. Its a new year. Wu-Tang has just released another album. Soulja Boy is at the top of the charts, we are close to seeing the First Black President and im ready to progress in 2008. Every year gets better. I was proud in 2007 to establish new relationships, receive new opportunities, and experience new and exciting things that will all build me as an individual. I learn something new everyday so after I recover from the party I'll be picking up where I left off in 07.
