Yes ladies and gentlemen, it’s once again time for some more random musings courtesy of the world wide wide internet!
I played this for my Mom and she was like “I love that!!!”…I thought she meant the dancing but she actually really likes the song… #MoveThatDope
If you know anything about Gary Payton, you know that he was one of the (if not THEE) biggest trash talker The League has ever seen…which makes this Jason Williams crossover even better. #FeelingNostalgicWatchingThis
The chart below was put together by the Brookings Institute and is really perplexing when you actually put it in perspective. What the chart indicates is that 71% of legislative issues never get resolved due to the partisan our-way-or-the-highway-agree-on-nothing mentality that is rampant in Washington. Just think about that for a second; the same people that blew through $6 billion in campaign spending in 2012 only resolve 29% of issues that they’ve been elected to fix. They’re basically doing nothing. That said, I do believe we will one day reach a point where decisions are made based on what is best for the people and not what is best for political positioning… #PeopleFirst
Here’s a long but dope ass article on Chief Keef written for Vice Magazine by an English-lit grad turned heroin addict (since recovered)…
…to conclude that “Finally Rich” is the same sort of record as “Back From the Dead” and “Bang” is to miss a lot of the subtext underpinning many of the album’s tracks that give it a complexity…and this complexity reflects, I would argue, just what it means to come up as a young black male in one of the most forgotten corners of the dystopian 21st century American landscape…for all its posturing about balling hard and buying foreign cars, [Keef's music] reflects the sort of seize-the-day attitude common among kids with few prospects for escaping the cycle of poverty, death and imprisonment that is their lot. Here too, “Hate Bein’ Sober” is, on the surface, a paean to smoking kush, drinking and popping molly, but where the fuck do you think this antipathy to sobriety comes from?
Here’s cool chart outlining the routines of some of the world’s most creative and influential thinkers including Mozart, Immanuel Kant and Maya Angelou (RIP) amongst others. My own routine is probably closest to Picasso’s with the majority of my creative work taking place beginning in the early evening (7ish) and going into the early morning (2-3ish) with a little leisure break sometime around midnight – which I usually spend eating and watching sports highlights haha…
I’m admittedly a huge Ben Stiller fan… #Throwback
