Monday 40

August 31, 2009

Hey Everybody.

I’m not all the way back to blogging on a regular schedule yet, but I’m getting there.

not too much to report right now other than one of my favorite Game Franchises God of War will be releasing a collection that will have a remastered in HD, Trophy-enabled version of the first two games of this series. The game will sell for $40 this Holiday season, and I’m really thinking of buying it, even though I have WORKING copies of them for the PS2.

Yes, they work with my PS3, because I was smart impatient enough to get one of the Backward-Compatible models when they first released. Oh, I did a Mini-article over at Platform Nation to spread the news to the gaming world. I’m still having fun writing for those guys, I just need to start looking for articles/game review opportunities so I can continue to get my name out there.

The True Blood Season Finale will be on September 13, 2009 @ 9pm. They are going to give everyone a chance to get caught up with the last 3 episodes September 6,2009. From the previews, this season finale is going to be epic !!!

I noticed that MellownMighty has made a small return to the blogging world, go check out her site.

This week get a free side salad from OneFresh Stir-Fry when you say “Listen or Loose”. There’s a story behind it…

College Football Season, is around the corner. This will be the first time in 3-4 years where I won’t be getting up @ 7am to work for the G&G crew (love the new web site guys !!!)  I miss them already; I might have to make a special appearance during a game day just to cheer them on.

I want to take this time to ask all of you out there to send a special prayer out to the family of my Fairy DogMother. She’s going through some things with her family, and can use all the prayers she can get.

That’s about it for now guys… Until next time !!!


Rise of the Gentlemigga

July 6, 2009

*Disclaimer: there is some REALLY rough language in this post. I assure you it’s all within context. I also tried to keep the gratuitous foul language to a minimum. *

What is a Gentlemigga you might be asking…

Well, I spent the better part of today reading about it and putting my own opinions in on the matter. To sum it up; here’s a young woman’s opinion on the topic:

A “gentlemigga” is a MAN who has all the characteristics of a gentleman. he treats you like a lady, has a good head on his shoulders, he’s about business. he’s civilized, educated, sensitive, and well-mannered. BUT when the need arises, his “n***a” side comes out. he’s ready to fight for his girl. he’s intense. he’s almost primal…  he knows how love you gently AND do ya like Tyrese sang.. “straight f***in”. a “gentlemigga” can adapt to what is needed by his lady. a “gentlemigga”…is all of the above.

To sum it up, it’s a Gentleman and a “hood n***a”. Not the ones that have moments like these:

and NOT the ones that wear Skinny Jeans either…

but yes, these are stand up men (color is only an option in this case) who know how to take care of their woman with the book of chivalry (It’s not on Amazon; So, if you didn’t get a copy, it’s probably for the best.) and can at the flip of the switch transform into N***A mode to stand up for what’s right and to protect his loved ones.

this post is by no means created to promote ignorance; but rather to educate the masses. Women deserve GMs, not the boys who are too busy playing games, and messing with the emotions of our queens (Nubian and otherwise)

To sum it all up the Creator of this Movement had this to say:

“There are only a few of us and we are what women want and need all in one.”

Which leads to what woman “want” and “need” but THIS isn’t the blog for that discussion.

Women, you should NEVER settle for this…

Instead, you should be treated like, and look forward to…

What do you think? do GMs exist? do you have one? do you want one?

Well, this one is already off the market (look for the key here)… but there are others out there…

The Female counterpart is coming soon (pending correct terminology)


Monday the 13th

February 9, 2009

*dodges the black cat *

Alright everyone, it’s my 13th Monday Post. 

** Update: If you go to OneFresh this week, get a free drink when you say “this ain’t fast food.”  ** 

As usual, here’s what you might have missed from Last Monday:

I warned the masses about a email hoax

A pizza party that was broken up.

The temptation to go toe to toe with Madea

Finally, I made a stand against the Facebook 25. (which is NOT to be confused with the “Freshman 15” )

 

Friday Night was the start of the “Sleepout for the Homeless” event on campus. Every year, Phi Beta Sigma fraternity throws an event where a bunch of students brave the cold, donate non-perishable food and clothing to those less fortunate, and overall have a great time throughout the night.

Somehow… Every year, this event is held on one of the colder nights of the year. This year, no one seemed to mind that much. Everyone was jumping rope, and dancing, and just having an all-around good time.  I had originally planned that THIS was the year I was going to stay all night…

Yeah, I left at 2am. I actually ran into some Psiettes at the event, and I hung out with them for about an hour or so. 

Kollage Dance Troupe performed,  some spoken word, a performance by the Black Actors Guild.

Couple things I did notice while I was out there in the cold:

  • The only time a guy should dance to this song is… Never actually. 
  • That SOMEONE should get a good copy of this song. I’m tired of EVERYONE’s copy pausing at the SAME time.
  • When are the Practice sessions for all these dances? how is it that EVERYONE is dancing to these songs ??? 
  • Why are people running around on campus at night yelling about the Stimulus package??? 

All in all, this year’s event was one of the best I’ve been to. They served pizza this year (twice) and it just felt like better planning.

 

In other blog news, I’ve decided to shelf the Facebook status idea. It’s not as popular as I thought it would be.

I’ve also started playing Afro Samurai this weekend. Keep an eye out for my review. 

Valentine’s Day is coming this weekend. Do you have plans for your significant other?

flowers? candy? teddy bears?

What are your plans? I’d love to hear about them (within reason. I’m looking at you, CBK) 

My plans? I’ve got none. yup. none.

This year, Mrs. Blogmaster is in charge of the Hallmark Holiday. I’m taking a page out of Usher’s Book this year; (NSFW) besides, I need time to recharge my creative batteries.

I would also like to take this time to let everyone know (specifically men) that if you are planning to take this route use this gift, there are a few requirements:

  1. You discuss this IN ADVANCE with your significant other. It would be very embarrassing if you both had the thought that the OTHER had plans… 
  2. You actually did something significant for the first couple of Valentine’s Days. A card and/or a box of chocolate do NOT count as “significant”
  3. You come up with something phenomenal the following Valentine’s (or which ever you are next “responsible” for) 
  4. Even though I alluded to this in requirement 2, I am going to officially say it now: This canNOT be the FIRST valentine’s day you are celebrating with your significant other. 

The  opportunity gift of a “Sadie Hawkins Valentine’s Day” is a rare, and most precious  opportunity. DON’T try to over use it. Unless, your Significant Other doesn’t care about Valentine’s Day… in that case, you’re off the hook.


Facebook 25

February 8, 2009

It’s been all over facebook for over a week now.

I’ve read a couple articles about this.

It’s time I address this new blast from the past. It seems like the new thing to do is to post 25 random facts about yourself and then tag 25 of your friends (1 of which has to be whoever tagged you to do this task). 

I’m not sure what to make of this new phenomenon honestly. I will admit that the random things people put are VERY entertaining. 

I gave this quite a bit of thought. When I saw the first couple lists pop up, I thought maybe I would give it a go. However, as more and more people started doing it, the more and more I decided.

I have personally decided that I will NOT be posting 25 random facts about myself. I have decided to take this stand because I don’t want to become another statistic. Also, I refuse to pick 25 people; Not to mention I’m obligated to tag everyone that’s already tagged me. (6 as of Sunday 9:30pm)

I will admit that these facts are entertaining at the very least. 

People admitting to loving certain smells (crayons, gasoline, heaters ??? ) 

People who are shopaholics (a few of those) 

People with multiple parents (literally, and figuratively) 

People even admitting to their deepest fears

People hiding cryptic (and sometimes not so cryptic) messages for specific people. (those are the most fun)

I sometimes wonder how much time people put into these lists. I’d imagine some people take a few minutes, some a few days… I actually heard read that one person took an entire WEEK to compile their list.

Why? 

Why are people so willing to provide the Internet with anywhere from the frivolously random, to the absolute soul-bearing? 

It’s not the anonymity, because usually most of your friends and schoolmates can read these.

Is it E-therapy? 

A fad?

Just for a laugh? Only time will tell. 

What about the people who DIDN’T get tagged by their friends? not gonna lie, a couple of my friends didn’t tag me in their lists, and for some reason, for 4 and 3/4 seconds (jump to about 2:40 into the video), I was jealous. I’m not sure though, it’s like I was left out of their life. One person told me they didn’t tag me because of all the mutual friends they tagged, I’d read it eventually (I’m looking at you Ms. Fish) 

What about you? do you think it’s a fad?  Have you done your 25 yet? feel free to post one or two of yours here. Just not all 25, please.  

 

** Seriously, I didn’t nor will I be making a 25 things to know about me, sorry **


Respect Your Elders?

February 5, 2009

Growing up, you are always taught to respect your elders.

Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins older than you by 3 years, the nice old lady with the old candy and smelled like Moth balls… 

Didn’t matter. If they were older than you, you were to show them the UTMOST of respect. 

Ever notice that these people never quite showed YOU any respect?

You might not have noticed it when you were younger, but as you made your way into Adulthood, and eagerly anticipated all the responsibilities power that came with being an adult, there was something missing…

Respect.

Not just from the younger kids (because lets face it, they have NO home training)  

but from Adults. 

Especially Older Adults (Senior Citizens and such) 

Earlier today, I was in class with 1 half of twelvin; She got the attendance sheet for me since we came to class late.

I was also talking to our professor about an assignment that was due this evening, and out of no where “Madea” came and asked for the Attendance sheet

I’m sorry, “asked” isn’t the correct term. 

I was looking for something more like “reached across twelvin’s body to get the sheet as she asked for it at the same time.”

As Twelvin tried to defend herself she handed me the sheet and I was getting ready to sign as the teacher was wrapping it up. Madea then inSISted that the sheet be given to her so she could sign it.

I would like to take this time to mention that no “peer” would have tried something like that; We respect each other, and know how to wait our turns.

Madea? not so much. 

Instead of starting a situation in front of our teacher (and going against home training) we yielded and handed her the sheet, keeping a close eye to make sure the sheet didn’t disappear to the other side of the classroom.

As Twelvin and I were leaving we both mentioned that if “Madea” was in fact our age, we wouldn’t have reacted so passively. 

Is it just us? I’m afraid not.

This evening as I was stalking people looking for funny Facebook Statuses, I came across this:

R.R. –  understands you’re suppose to respect old people but I’m sorry some of them deserve to be cursed the hell out…

Naturally, I was intrigued, so I decided to investigate…

the 2 gentleman who responded both agreed with the Original Poster (OP). 

the next friend then warned of being physically reprimanded for insolence smacked for being rude. 

As I read this status discussion, it made me wonder “Do older people lack respect ?” 

I hit the interwebs, and asked a couple good friends about this.

One person felt that 

 “the elders do, possibly because they think that they know everything due to their advanced age.

wisdom and knowledge are frequently confused

I never looked at it like that; confusing Wisdom and Knowledge

Another person felt that

” Generations don’t respect each other.. the old don’t respect the young and the young don’t respect the old. They (older generation) don’t understand the new generation and simply write us off as deviants.. not respecting or trying to understand us”

This seems to be a common theme that I’ve personally noticed; just because we’re younger, they automatically write us off as a waste of space.

Another Reader felt that 

“Since older people  had to earn it themselves, they just don’t give it out… I see that a lot especially in churches”

This was a REALLY good point. Growing up in church, I’ve personally noticed that the fancier the hat, the less respect they have for the young.

but WHY ?

I thought about maybe interviewing some older people about this; but… I’m afraid I’d have to end the interview early.

What are your thoughts? do you think older people have respect?

and if not, why not? 

Let’s talk about it.


Status Watch 1

January 30, 2009

OK, like I said before, I’ve been watching my friends for Funny/Interesting statuses. More than likely no one really knows that they are being watched, so these should be pretty funny. I must also state that ones that are misspelled are left that way intentionally. Some may not be that funny, so bear with me my sometimes funny friends.

So, without further ado, I present the findings of my first week:

M.K. – is ugggh soo not lokig forward to dealing with the abominable snow-car.

M.W. – is suffering from what she likes to call, “work-related selective ADD.”

J.C. – is not what was but still can be what could be if what was stays at was and i let what is become what’s next. [[wow,lol]].

A.T. – is thoroughly convinced that a large amount of young women need to be re-educated. ASAP lol.

K.M. – is tired of people thinking just because I am young I do not know what I am talking about, JUST DO YOUR JOB!

L.A. – It doesn’t work to leap a twenty-foot chasm in two ten-foot jumps.

D.I.: Is just a self-centered egotistical male chauvinist pig and I go “OINK OINK OINK!” I love to go “OINK OINK OINK!”

A.M.: The “stanky leg” is the most idiotic bama a$$ song I have ever heard and the artist should go play on the Dan Ryan expressway during rush hour!!! UGH!

M.H.: Thinks I should post the funny things people tell me…my coworker on the phone to a clinic today, “Did you get the email I SUNT you?” me to her: wtf is “SUNT” lol.

FJs is wishing I was in bed couting sheep…

TH Mz Jones…pray do tell…..wtf iz couting? cuz what ever it iz, I wanna do it too…..

C.O. – wanted to get her eyebrows done but apparently its chinese new year :/

T.A. – is wondering what’s in the water, cuz EVERY pregnant woman in Marianna delivered today. Pre-term, full term, all of them

and… that’s all i got so far. Some of them are interesting, some of them aren’t…

You think you can do better?

You think your circle of friends is MUCH wittier ?

Prove it.

Send me the statuses of your friends, and if I like them they are really funny, I’ll put them up here and give credit where credit is due.

Everyone that sent me statuses and I didn’t give credit to, I’m sorry. (NSFConservativeW)


Graduation BCS Intro

January 29, 2009

As many of you know, I Love College football. I love it to the point I started my own online Dynasty with some friends (which by the way is still waiting on the National Championship) 

Today, I recieved an email from FSU today. Pretty much it explained something about graduation, and which website I needed to check out for more information. 

Here’s where things get interesting;

According to my email, everyone gets 6 tickets; and if you need more you can petition for more depending on supply/demand. 

Problem! 

As many of you know (well, some of you) I have a big family. 

How big? 

let’s just say my siblings alone put me at -2 tickets. 

*sighs*

This isn’t including my parents, relatives, or even Mrs. Blogmaster. 

So here’s what I’m going to do; instead of treating the situation like the rest of the sports world and conduct a playoff competition, I’m going to treat this like my favorite sport and have coaches, computers, and members of the press decide who gets to go to the Graduation !

OK, apparently I’m not allowed to do it that way… something about a lawsuit

So,  I will turn to you my voters fans;  who gets to go?

Do I give out automatic bids to my parents?  

Does one sibling get more votes because of a stronger strength of schedule (birth-order) ?

What about Mrs. Blogmaster, do I give her the #1 seed just because ? 

I have an aunt in NY who wants 3 seeds for her conference in NY.

This is going to be fun. 

 

Don’t forget to send me funny Facebook Statuses that you come across.
