Kiss me, I'm unemployed!

So, yeah.. As of last Thursday, I've joined the ranks of the unemployed. It's a weird feeling to have all of this free time. The truth of it is that, subconsciously, I've been wanting this to happen for months. And, well, it did. Yippee, I guess!

Now, I actually have to follow through on my threat to leave Las Vegas, the city that I hate with the heat of a thousand habanero peppers.

Truth be told, I do feel quite liberated, so, it's not all bad. It wasn't the job that was the problem, it was a whole host of other things. Even though they kicked my ass to the curb, they are still an awesome company.

When my manager came around and asked if we could have a 'lil chat, I didn't think anything of it. As we were walking down the hallway of doom, she started randomly talking about Jaime Foxx.. then, she began to hum the refrain from "Blame it on the alcohol." I knew I was screwed.

It's all good, though. I figure I'll be a bum for a couple of weeks, maybe longer, then figure out where I actually want to move to. Will it be Los Angeles or Seattle? I really feel like I can move anywhere that I want. Frankly, that is an awesome feeling!

My new Youtube channel!

So, yeah.. I caved to the imaginary peer pressure to create my own Youtube channel. What will I put on my new Youtube channel? Who knows.

The first video up on my channel is a sexy little montage I made of women making out. While I have no real idea what my channel theme will be, I'm sure there will quite a few sexy montages and vignettes posted.

Anyway, check out my vid, below before Youtube yanks it for being 'inappropriate.'

White dudes with cornrows!


I was up late one night, watching some random MMA fights on TV, when I spyed Uriah Faber (WEC Featherweight champ) rocking the 'white dudes with cornrows' look. Nice!

It got me to thinking about other white dudes and their fabulous braided 'dos...

Who can forget Jared Leto as, Junior, the rich kid gone bad, in 'The Panic Room'? If I had written the script for 'The Panic Room,'...


INT. KITCHEN - NIGHT
Junior paces the floor like a crazyass white dude wearing cornrows that are too tight. He turns around and sees Raoul glaring at him.

JUNIOR

What the fuck are you lookin' at, Babyback Ribs? Don't you know that I'm a bad muthafucka?! I'm wearin' cornrows, see?!


Junior fiercely points to his cornrow bedecked noggin.

Raoul's eyes narrow to a squint as he continues to glare at Junior. He takes out a surface to air bazooka and launches a missile directly at Junior's head. The missile connects with it's target and totally fucks up Juniors cornrows.

RAOUL

Nobody calls me Babyback Ribs and lives!



How about our favorite former 'Nsync rugrat, Justin "JT" Timberlake? Not only did he NOT bring the sexy back in this pic, Sexy actually got up and stormed off while yelling incoherent obscenities at JT and everybody else in the room.

This, however, is my favorite picture of a white dude wearing cornrows. It's a pic of Brad Miller (center for the Chicago Bulls) rocking this badass variation on the cornrow 'do.

It looks as if Brad just gave up during the cornrowing process and decided to go with a half cornrow, half regular white dude 'do (while sporting a replica of the headband Bjorn Borg wore when he won his 17th Wimbledon title.). Impressive!

So, the next time you encounter a white dude wearing cornrows, give 'em a high five or a pound. He's earned it!

Karima Francis, I LOVE YOU!!


I am not prone to gush over new music artists. In fact, I usually take the anti-hype route and ignore that new artist, completely, until I decide that they are worth my time. Having said all of the above... I am completely in the tank for and in love with Karima Francis!

Her voice is staggeringly beautiful.. Her vocal range is stunning.. And she's only 21!

Her debut album came out a couple of weeks ago. You can only get it as an import here in the states, but it is well worth the wait. I have not actually purchased a CD in years (too many "free" options available), but I pre-ordered this one.


Here are some videos of her for you viewing pleasure.
