Song of the Day

Title: The Next Movement
Artist: The Roots
Album: Things Fall Apart



[Black Thought]
C'mon...and yes y'all
You are now in tune to the sounds...
Of the legendary...foundation

Yeah, you go
Hey you listeners, stop what you're doin and
Set it in motion, it's the next movement
You listeners, stop what you're doin and
Set it in motion, it's the next movement

Word up, we got the HOT-HOT music, The HOT MUSIC
The HOT-HOT music, the HOT music (3X)

Yo, one, two, one-two one-two
That's how we usually start, once again it's the Thought
The Dalai Lama of the mic, the prime minister Thought
This directed to whoever in listening range
Yo the whole state of things in the world 'bout to change
Black rain fallin from the sky looks strange
The ghetto is red hot, we steppin' on flames
Yo, it's infliction on a price for fame
And it was all the same, but then the antidote came
The Black Thought, ill syllablist, out the Fifth
This heavyweight rap shit I'm about to lift
LIKE, a phyllum lift up it's seed to sunlight
I plug in the mic, draw like a gunfight
I never use a cordless, or stand applaud-less
Sippin' cholorophyll out of ill silver gauntlets
I'm like a faucet, monopoly's the object
There ain't no way to cut this tap, you got ta get wet
Your head is throbbin' and I ain't said shit yet
The Roots crew, the next movement, c'mon!

Testin', yo, you go
Hey you listeners, stop what you're doin' and
Set it in motion, it's the next movement
You listeners, stop what you're doin' and
Set it in motion, it's the next movement

Word up, we got the HOT-HOT music, the HOT music
The HOT-HOT music, the HOT music (3X)

Word up, the formation of words to fit
That's what I usually disturb you with
A lot of rappers never heard of this, or know half the time it is
You doubt the Illa-Fifth, what could you accomplish?
Whether they skywriting your name, or you anonymous
You be speechless, with stinging sinuses
The Roots royal highnesses through your monitors
I tilt my crown, then blow down a dime a kiss
You need to buy a CD and stop rewindin' this
I'm the finalist, shinin' like a rugged amethyst
And at your music conference, I'm the panelist
Listen close to my poetry, I examine this
Like an analyst, to see if you can handle this
Check it out
You, got the groove, emcees
Freeze, stand still, nobody move
Unless you dealin' with The Next Movement
The P-Phi-D we be the mon-u-ment
I live my life nice, but I'm not choopid
You theatrical as a Broadway play, this ain't Rent
One hundred percent, straight out the basement
Spreading this across the planet on some next shit
How many people feelin' this love music? C'mon

Yo, you go
Hey you listeners, stop what you're doin' and
Set it in motion, it's the next movement
You listeners, stop what you're doin' and
Set it in motion, it's the next movement

Yo, we got the HOT-HOT music, the HOT music
The HOT-HOT music, the HOT music (7X)

Thought of the Day

I saw a commercial for a Criss Angel instructional DVD the other day and it was the most preposterous attempt at marketing a product I have seen in quite a while. This was essentially the commercial's pitch: buy this DVD because chicks love magicians and learning to levitate will get you laid by supermodels, just like demi-god Criss Angel.

Thought of the Day

Here is a list of eccentric habits I think all people should adopt:
- pointing with your pinky finger
- winking at strangers on the street
- reading out loud to yourself
- using hand signals while driving
- sprinting across crosswalks, especially when no cars are around
- drinking beer from a straw
- insisting your barber only cut one strand of hair at a time
- waving to people in an up-down motion instead of side-side
- shopping for food items alphabetically instead of by section/aisle
- humming loudly while playing team sports
- carioca-ing up and down staircases
- eating popcorn one kernel at a time
- offering a taste of your entree to your waiter
- vigorously leaning your body and tilting your hands when turning your vehicle in a racing video game
- using regional dialect that is neither from your area or the area you are inhabiting
- making an "ahhh" sound after taking the first sip of a refreshing beverage

The Big Aristotle Doesn't Give a Shit

An Enlightening Online Conversation with a Neo-Nazi

One of my guilty pleasures is perusing the comments section of YouTube videos and enjoying some of the preposterous opinions I inevitably come across. This is only the second time I've engaged someone in conversation on YouTube (the first was with a Giants fan about a video of a Phillies/Giants brawl - the Giants fan was able to surmise the collective IQ of Philadelphia was 100 based on the reaction of Shane Victorino to being beaned in the spine). Due to the fascinating results of this latest foray into YouTube debating, I guarantee there will be a third time.

This is the video:


The argument was promped by a comment made by user "sfvfisherman." I strongly suggest you see his YouTube channel prior to reading this: http://www.youtube.com/user/sfvfisherman. Enough said. Now that the set and setting is established, here is the conversation:

THIS IS WHAT THE ZIONISTS DID IN RUSSIA AND THEY CALLED IT COMMUNISM AND IT'S WHAT THEY'RE TRING TO DO TO EUROPE AND AMERICA RIGHT NOW UNDER THE FALSE FLAG OF FEAR AND BANKRUPTCY!!! LET'S GET RID OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE AND GET STARTED ON TAKING DOWN THE JEWISH ZIONISTS!!!

sfvfisherman 1 day ago

@sfvfisherman You're an idiot. Why do ignorant neo-Nazis like yourself instinctively blame the alleged Jewish Zionist agenda in response to this subject matter? Let me guess, you read The Protocols of the Elders of Zion and believed every word. If the people behind the agenda were like you (Aryan and Christian, I assume), would you hold them in contempt? Probably not. Just be glad you won't be alive 100 years from now when the whole world is brown. Did you learned anything from Derek Vinyard?

@SKings218 IT'S EASY TO CALL SOMEONE A IDIOT OVER THE COMPUTER I GUESS, MEANINGLESS BUT OBVIOUSLY IT MAKE YOUR PATHETIC LIFE MEANWHILE, OBVIOUSLY THE TRUTH IS SOMETHING YOU LIKE TO HIDE FROM. WELL KEEP LIVING IN THE DARK. ENJOY LOSER!!! AND ANY COUNTRY OR LIFESTYLE THAT IS BROWN WILL BY FACT BE A LIVING HELL FOR THOSE IN IT.. LOOK AT ANY COUNTRY THAT IS NOT WHITE, ENOUGH SAID!, THERE'S A REASON WHY N!GGERS AND LIKEWISE MONKEYS WANT TO LIVE IN OUR COUNTRIES, THEY CAN'T CREATE OR SUSTAIN THEIR OWN

@sfvfisherman It's also easy to vilify an entire group over the computer because of a conspiracy theory that can't be verified unless you're on the inside of it. I don't deny the possibility of a global NWO, Illuminati, Jewish Zionist conspiracy with an insidious goal. I also refuse to wholeheartedly believe in speculative, paranoid mumbo-jumbo endorsed by neo-Nazis with an equally despicable agenda. I assume your xenophobic worldview stems from a depraved childhood. Or you're trolling.

@SKings218 ...HOW IS IT HARD TO VERUFY IT'S A FACT OF LIFE IF YOU CANT SEE THAT THAN IT'S BECAUSE YOU DON'T WANT TO SEE THAT! AND CALLING SOME A "NAZI" IS ALL WELL AND GOOD BECAUS ETHEY WANT TO STICK UP AND SUPPORT THEIR RACE! I DON'T TAKE IT AS A BAD THING, IT SIMPLY SHOWS WHAT THE MEDIA HAS DONE TO "PEOPLE' AND BY THAT WORD I MEAN WHITE PEOPLE! IF YOUR SOMETHING ELSE THAN YOU'VE ALREADY LOST THE WAR OF MAN AND THIS CONVERSTAION NEED NOT GO ANY FURTHER..AND YOU'D BE WRONG ON YOUR LAST 2 REMARKS

sfvfisherman 2 hours ago

@sfvfisherman I'm white. Blonde hair, blue eyes. Though mostly Irish, so I guess I don't meet Nordic standards. It's hard to verify because it's a conspiracy theory. 'Theory' being the operative word. What's interesting is it subjugates non-white people through corrupting third-world governments via proxy leaders, pushing the military-industrial complex, and exploiting resources in poor nations, yet you condemn these (Jewish) fellas when they're allegedly doing your bidding. Inconsistent much?

SKings218 10 minutes ago

@SKings218 1st of all it doesn't matter what you look like white is white! All whites are of the aryan breed! AND NOTHING OF THE "CONSPIRACY" the way you put it is hard to verify it's taking place look at the political world and the median and everything else that goes along with it!!!It's our american soldiers dying to keep the dream of israel open and alive.! as well when we go into other countries and set up puppet governments that wealth goes to the international banks we have to pay for war

sfvfisherman 16 minutes ago

@sfvfisherman "We" as in white people? Other races aren't paying for war? I don't like our foreign policy on Israel, but if there was a state of white supremacists called "West Bumblefuck," surrounded by unfriendly nations "Mitsburrg" and "Niladelfia," you wouldn't complain about the costs of protecting that state's interests. Your qualm is not with the immorality of the agenda, it's with the culprits being Jewish (allegedly) based on your asinine neo-Nazi belief system. At least be honest.

YOU MIGHT WANT TO START READING BOOKS OF REAL VALUE AND STOP BELIEVING EVERYTHING YOU SEE AND HEAR IN THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA. IT ONLY ALLOWS YOU TO APPEAR A IMBECILE AND PEOPLE LIKE MYSELF OF REAL INTELLECT DO NOT WANT TO WASTE TIME OR ENERGY TRYING TO CLUE YOU IN TO THE REAL WORLD AROUND YOU!!! YOUR POINTS ARE UNIMPORTANT AN EVEN MORE ABSURD, AND THE FACT THAT YOU "THINK" YOU HAVE ANY SORT OF INTELLIGENCE IS WHAT ACTUALLY MAKES YOU LAUGHABLE TO ANYONE OF IMPORTANCE AND SUBSTANANCE LIKE MYSELF! GET A LIFE AND A CLUE LOSER!!!

sfvfisherman (1 hour ago)
FUCKING WANNABEE LOSER. LOLOLOLOL, GET A LIFE!

@sfvfisherman Re: your comments on my channel, if you were a man of "real intellect" you wouldn't take everything you read about this stuff at face value, especially when it's filtered through an anti-Semitic scope. Any critical thinker is aware there is a lot of gray. Assuming everything about the JZ agenda is true, there are still people of all races, nationalities, and creeds complicit in it. Not every politician, CEO, and banking tycoon has a last name ending in "berg" or "stein." Get real.

@SKings218 I'VE READ AND WATCHED IT ALL FROM ALL VIEWS YOU OBVIOUSLY ARE IF WHITE A BLEEDING HEART WHITE OR FOR SOME REASON BELIEV EVERYONE IS THE SAME!!! LOOK AT ANY RACE'S NATION OF ORIGIN AND TELL ME HOW IT LOOKS WHEN THE WHITE MAN DOESN'T HELP THEM OUT IN SOME WAY OR ANOTHER, OR EVEN IF WE DO.!THEY ARE DISGUSTING! WHITE PRIDE MAY NOT BE SOMETHING YOU HAVE DO TO EITHER NOT BEING WHITE OR YOU WERE RAISED AS A PUSSY! AND JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE IS NOT A JEW DOES NOT MEAN THEY ARE NOT BOUGHT BY ONE

@sfvfisherman We ARE pretty much all the same. The average genetic variation between any two individuals is 0.1%. Our DNA is 96% identical to chimps', so how different do you think you are from an Afghan farmer taking a slug to the temple so your inbred cousin has gas for his F150? You know Caucasian includes peoples from the Middle East, right? I suggest you watch George Carlin's rant on the stupidity of racial pride: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDgmjL6z2jY.

YOUR POINTS ARE WEAKLY COMNTRIVED AND SOUND LIKE DRIVEL OF ANY RANDOM MAINSTREAM DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN TRYING TO DEBUNK THE TRUTH!!! SO IN THAT TEACHING YOU ANYTHING IS A WASTE OF MY TIME! IF YOU REALLY WANT TO LEARN YOU HAVE THE INTERNET AND ALL I CAN SAY IS GO WATCH THE (KHAZARIAN) CONSPIRACY WHICH EVEN THOUGH LIBERALIZED A BIT IS CLOSE ENOUGH TO THE TRUTH FOR ONE AS DIM-WITTED AS YOURSELF!!!

Title: Brain Stew
Artist: Green Day
Album: Insomniac



I'm having trouble trying to sleep
I'm counting sheep but running out
As time ticks by
And still I try
No rest for crosstops in my mind

On my own... here we go

My eyes feel like they're gonna bleed
Dried up and bulging out my skull
My mouth is dry
My face is numb
Fucked up and spun out in my room

On my own...here we go

My mind is set on overdrive
The clock is laughing in my face
A crooked spine
My senses dulled
Passed the point of delerium

On my own...here we go

My eyes feel like they're gonna bleed
Dried up and bulging out my skull
My mouth is dry
My face is numb
Fucked up and spun out in my room

On my own...here we go

Title: I'm On One
Artist: DJ Khaled feat. Drake, Rick Ross, Lil' Wayne
Album: We The Best Forever



(Get em on)
I’m on one
(Get em on)
I’m on one
(Get em on)
I said I’m on one

[Drake]
I’m getting so throwed
I aint went this hard since I was 18
Apologise if I say, anything I don’t mean
Like whats up with your best friend?
We could all have some fun, believe me
And whats up with these new niggas?
And why they think it all comes so easy

But get it while you here boy
Cause all that hype don’t feel the same next year boy
Yeah and I’ll be right here in my spot with a little more cash than I already got
Trippin off you cause you had your shot
With my skin tanned and my hair long
And my fans who been so patient, me and 40 back to work but we still smell like a vacation
Hate the rumours, hate the bullshit
Hate these fucking allegations, I’m just feeling like the throne is for the taking
Watch me take it!

[Drake - Chorus]
All I care about is money and the city that I’m from
I’ma sip until I feel it, I’ma smoke it till it’s done
And I don’t really give a f-ck, and my excuse is that I’m young
And I’m only getting older so somebody shoulda told ya

I’m on one
Yeah, f-ck it, I’m on one
Yeah, I said I’m on one
F-ck it, I’m on one

Two white cups and I got that drink
Could be purple, it could be pink
Depending on how you mix that shit
Money that we got, never get that shit

Cause I’m on one
I said fuck it I’m on one

[Rick Ross]
I’m burning purple flowers
It’s burning my chest
I bury the most cash and burning the rest
Walking on the clouds, suspended in thin air
Do ones beneath me recognise the red bottoms I wear
Burner in the belt
Move the kids to the hills (BOSS)
Bend shawty on the sink, do it for the thrill
Kiss you on ya neck and tell ya everything is great
Even though I out on bond I might be facin’ 8′s
Still running with the same niggas til the death of me
Ever seen a million cash, gotta count it carefully
Ever made love to the woman of your dreams
In a room full of money out in London and she screams
Baby, I could take it there
Call Marc Jacobs personally to make a pair
So yeah, we on one, the feeling ain’t fair (Khaled)
And it’s double M G until I get the chair

[Drake - Chorus]

[Lil Wayne]
I walk around the club, f-ck everybody
And all my niggas got that Heat I feel like Pat Riley
Yeah, too much money, aint enough money
You know the feds listening, nigga what money?
I’m a made nigga
I should dust something
You niggas on the bench
Like the bus coming
huh, aint nothing sweet but the swishas
I’m focused might aswell say cheese for the pictures
Ohhh, I’m about to go Andre the Giant
You a sell out, but I aint buying
Chopper dissect a nigga like science
Put an end to your world like the Mayans
This a celebration bitches, Mazel Tov
It’s a slim chance I fall, Olive Oyl
Tunechi be the name, don’t ask me how I got it
I’m killin’ these hoes I swear I’m tryna stop the violence

Thought of the Day

America is a melting pot. We're considered the most multicultural nation in the world. But why is it there's very few Asian/Latino people? Why aren't Asians and Latinos making babies together? There's a fair amount of whites/blacks, whites/Asians, whites/Latinos, blacks/Asians, and blacks/Latinos. Where are all the mixed Asian/Latino people? There needs to be more added to America's palette.

Album: Pricele$$



[Intro - Birdman]
Make it so fresh, YM
So fly, so priceless, CMB bitch
Just another day on the
Top floor of the balcony, bitch
Live it how we live it
Mula, Drizzy
You what it is, young'n, appreciate that
It's big money popping baby boy
Ain't none of that lil biddy

[Hook]
More, m-more milly
More, m-more milly

[Verse 1 - Birdman]
Ostrich pearl-white candy paint job fly
Big Tymer on the loose
Got my bitch riding 5
And every time I pull up, you know I'm iced up
When I step up in the club I light the bitch up
Back on my saddle blowin' purple out the truck
Candy paint, rally stripe, bitch shining like us
Pearly white Maybach hatchback
Automatic straps, stash spots under the rack
Bitch, ready to spray that
Foreign grinds, hard times
Getting mines, you know: Uptown
Big time doing time
You know, Harley Davis baby
Cash money is what pay me so you pay me how it weigh, baby
Black gold, hundred mil off the floor
Never told so you know how it go, bitch
One hundred, one hundred

[Hook]

[Verse 2 - Drake]
You're now fucking with the most requested
The young nigga that everybody is so obsessed with
And black-on-black '62 float majestic
Me and Stunna in it, boy I'm just so connected
Caught up in a popularity contest
I'm about to reach my dreams and I ain't even got my arms stretched
Thank Me Later first week, I'm taking all bets
Because a million copies really isn't far-fetched
I keep credit cards in cash knots
I keep my darkest shades on 'til the flash stops
This is for my LA girls getting them implants
And all my DC girls getting them ass shots
Got 'em for a reason shorty, go ahead shorty, bust it open
I keep a secret, baby, nothing's heard when nothing's spoken
Haters talk it like my buzz isn't enough promotion
And I just lost a Gucci sandal in the fucking ocean
Damn, I guess the problems of a teen star
Are all that fuels the conversations between y'all
And dog that's funny, pay me what you owe me nigga
All cash money

[Hook]

[Verse 3 - Bun B]
Well it's that big body nigga and his big body car
Got a big body boppa with that million dollar jaw
She said, "Daddy I like sushi, so give it to me raw"
I pulled out my strap condom, looked at her and said "naw"
Cigar full of Kush you need prescriptions to access
Laying on the mattress with your favorite actress
My blunt was going out I said, "Baby, pass the matches"
And let her top me off while I'm tapping off the ashes
Classic, but classless
You gassed up, but gas-less
Unleaded, yeah, Bun said it, nigga get past it
Taking what you got, you should've passed it
You was moving slower that molasses
This time you were nasty
Give it up to me fool, it's a jack
Don't move! This is murder music, nigga
Don't disturb this room, 2 Trill E-N-T Cash Money and October's Own
We true playas down to the last chromosome

Thought of the Day

It would be hilarious if the downfall of mankind was a freak genetic mutation that eliminated the x chromosome from all male gametes. Just imagine the widespread panic as the world population rapidly went from a 1:1 to 1:0 ratio of males to females. In about 100 to 140 years there wouldn't be a single female left on Earth. How would the remaining all male population react? Would scientists continue their attempts to fix the genetic mutation? After all, no one man would know for sure if there were any women left. Men would be scouring the globe looking for humanity's last reproductive hope in case the mutation was corrected. They'd be like the characters in Waterworld searching for Dryland. Do you think they would organize some sort of international census party to keep official records of everyone's efforts to find relict women? Would someone start a website, "ProjectOvaryRecovery.com," to help spread information on the search? In all likelihood, I think men would be so sexually frustrated from about four generations of increasingly scarce reproductive opportunities that most would go on genocidal rampages while the rest sat around and got wasted.

Ayo my quality control, captivates your party patrol
Your mind, body, and soul
For whom the bell tolls, let the rhythm explode
Big, bad, and bold b-boys of old
Many styles we hold, let the story be told
Whether platinum or gold, we use breath control
So let the beat unfold, intro on drum roll
We be the Lik like E, Tash, and J-Ro
We harass niggas like we was the po-po
We can rule the world without Kurtis and still Blow
Finesse, from SP to Casio
Your jams ain't def, you ain't fresh, you're so-so
If you don't know us by now you'll never know
You set that mood when we groove and prove a show
The name of the game is survive and prove your flow
You can't out take Jurassic syllable
Cause it's survival of professional radio
Stop and comprehend and heed the words of my pen
Survival of professional poetHighlanders

(Soup, you plan on rocking something fierce?) Oh, am I
Zaakir's the name, the A.K.A. super
The verbal acupunture from the dope old schooler
I used to be the brother for others that used to dumb on
Now they be the lovers of brothers that can't front on
Put me in the mix, LP 12-inch
SP, the elegant, poetic pestilence
I'm carbonated, the Fanti-confederated
Highly commemorated, and the most celebrated
For connecting it (Word!) Like verb subject to the predicate
Plus I got the etiquette
To keep it moving, and showing cats how it's done
Cause it's the verbal combat, position number one

We keep it beaming like a beacon, if it's clearance that you're seeking
Whether black or Puerto Rican, people back us when we're speaking
We got the kind of rhymes that get you ready for the weekend

Our temperature is freezing all kind of different regions
The rhythm is the reason you're checking for what we've done
Please son, our thesis, will rip your crew in pieces
Your rhymes ain't right, homeboy, you ain't in season

Yo, yo, well it's the angelic man-relic clan repellent
My plan parent manuscripts withstand bullets
Flashing like a Japan tourist, we command pure hits
While you cramming to understand these contraband lyrics
My fam submits to pray, 5 times a day
Climbing into your mind with live rhyme display
J5 finds a way to remain supreme
Coming verbally Hardison as if my name was Kadeem

[Akil]
Ayo my team Dreamworks without Spielberg or spill words
Communicate from the Earth throughout the universe
I transmit, transcipts, transcontinental lyrics
Deeply rooted in your spirit
Up, I love the power of words, nouns and verbs
The pen and the sword, liquid stick on award
No folklore or myths in my penmanship
The Panther Scholar Warriors is what I present, uh
Verbally decapitating those against a
Jihad-fee-sabeel-illah words make sense
You gots to get up on your vocab, you gots to have vocab
Letters makes words, and sentences makes paragraphs

[Akil]
Yo, I make the pen capsize, the verbal with the planted eyes
Planning knives ever pair that I utilize
Spit juice, crack blood from your tooth
Inflict truths, speak Allah's 99 attributes

You baby MCs drink Pedialyte
While underground doesn't like you, the media might
But we the elite will change that
As we bridge gaps in this lyrical grudge match, brothers we slug back

Yeah, we bless tracks with the help of a raw rap
Inprinted like poor tracks all over your brain rack
My mental maneuver will clear and steer right through ya
We Grand like Puba, understand that we move ya

Ayo, my rhythm reveal rollercoaster real deal
Revolutionize with active build
I plant my dreams in the field and wait to harvest my skills
For the starving MC, hungry trying to get a meal

I've always felt uncomfortable offering someone a piece of gum when I'm taking one out for myself, even though it's customary to do so. I always think the person will think I'm implying their breath smells when it's nothing more than a formality. Then the person will get all self-conscious about their breath and it will add to the extensive list of things he feels self-conscious about and he'll end up in therapy and start brushing his teeth six times a day. Then his enamel will wear off from so much brushing and gargantuan dental bills will start piling up to the point where he has to open another mortgage on his house and use the money he normally reserves for recreation on his monthly budget to help pay the new mortgage. Before you know it, he's working at Pet Smart on the weekends to supplement his income at Cubicle Maze, Inc., and he's developed acute stress disorder. Dr. Mallard, the local psychiatrist, insists he take the latest anti-anxiety medication, Zed-8. The pills are expensive, but Dr. Mallard promises him they will help, so he obliges. Due to the expense of the prescriptions, he can no longer afford to take his two vacation weeks a year from Cubicle Maze, Inc., and the added stress of having practically no leisure time causes him to start drinking heavily. The excessive drinking causes him to brush his teeth even more frequently to help mask the smell of cheap scotch on his breath. It becomes an irreversible downward spiral until one Saturday evening, after getting back from a day of cleaning up parrot crap at Pet Smart, he has one too many glasses of cheap scotch and the precarious mixture of alcohol and Zed-8 proves fatal. All because I offered him a piece of gum eight months prior.

[Mase]
Yo, what you know about goin’ out
Head west, red Lex, TVs all up in the headrest
Try and live it up
Ride true, a bigger truck
Peeps all glittered up
Stick up can, they go what?
Jig wit it cuz ship crisp, split it all
Hos ride, get your nut ’till I can’t get it up
I’m a big man, give this man room
I’d a hit everything, from Cancun to Grant’s tomb
Why you standin’ on the wall?
Hand on your balls
Lighting up drugs always fightin’ in the club
I’m the reason they made the dress code
They figure I wouldn’t mind when I’m in my French clothes
Dress as I suppose, from my neck to my toes
Neck full of gold, baguettes in my rolls
Wreck shows, collect those extra Os
Buy the E, get a key, to the Lex to hold
East, west, every state, come on, bury the hate
Millions, the only thing we in a hurry to make
Are the friend that act’s friend in a Lex or a Benz
Let’s begin, bring this BS to an end
Come on

[Hook]
Bad, bad, bad, bad boy
You make me feel so good
You know you make me feel so good
You know you make me feel so good
Bad, bad, bad, bad boy
I wouldn’t change you if I could
I wouldn’t change you if I could
I wouldn’t change you if I could

[Mase]
Ah ah
You can’t understand we be Waikiki
Sippin’ DP to the TV, look greedy
Little kids see me, way out in DC
With a Z3, chrome VBs, they wanna be me
Nigga’s talkin’ shit they ought to quit
I'm fortunate, they don’t see a fourth what I get
And those be the same ones walkin’ while I whip
Just stylishin' cars cuz they all true nig’
So while you daydream my Mercedes gleam
And I deal with hos that pose in Maybelline
One time you had it all I ain’t mad at ya’ll
Now give me the catalog, I’ll show you how daddy bought
Six cars and power to fire big stars
Sit up, CEO style, smokin’ on cigars, nigga
It’s like y’all be talkin’ funny
I don’t understand language of people with short money
Come on

[Hook]

[Puff Daddy]
Ah ah
Do mase got the ladies?
Do puff drive mercedes?
Take hits from the 80’s?
But do it sound so crazy?

[Mase]
Well me personally, it’s nothin’ personal
I do what work for me, you do what work for you
And I dress with what I was blessed with
Never been arrested for nothin’ domestic
And I chill the way you met me
With a jet ski attached to a c
Smoke my nestle, no mad rap-ass cat
Where my check be?
Problem with y’all I say it directly
Went from hard to sweet, starved to eat
From no hoes at shows to menage in suites
Now I be the cat that be hard to meet
Gettin’ head from girls
That used to hardly speak
Come on

Thought of the Day

I saw a commercial yesterday claiming each cigarette a person smokes takes 7 minutes off their lives. What kind of indecipherable, contrived BS is that? So if someone is fatally gored by a bull at the age of 37 at 1:00pm on a Tuesday, and he's smoked 198 cigarettes in his life, then if he hadn't smoked any cigarettes he would've died around 12:00pm on Wednesday? Tell me, fatalistic medical researcher, would he still have been gored by that bull? Or would he have fallen down the stairs on his way to the market? These types of claims presume cigarette smoking will be the direct cause of your death when hundreds of lifestyle choices and genetic factors play a role, not to mention the potential of freakish fatal accidents.

Excerpts From "Operation Zoop 103: A Survey to Determine Earthlings' Eligibility for Inclusion in the Intergalactic Committee of BFF Superraces"

My uncle works for the SETI Institute and he and his colleagues recently intercepted a message being transmitted between Earth and a far away galaxy. After analyzing the message, they discovered it was sent from Nashville, TN and received somewhere in the Messier 101 galaxy, 21 million light-years away. The transmission was a lengthy exchange between an alien named Faangulo, an intergalactic spy/bookkeeper of the Wiibul Moretti people, and his superior, Czar Lt. Whiffle. Faangulo was relating the contents of a report summarizing the results of a mission he was assigned to carry out on Earth. Here are some of the most captivating excerpts (please note the translation may have minor errors, some Morettishling words don't have English equivalents and vice versa):

From March 23, 2003:
The Earthlings from America started bombing the Earthlings from Iraq a couple days ago. The Earthlings haven't evolved much since the last Zoop survey in terms of using diplomacy and serenity chips to resolve disputes. President Busch believes Prime Dr. Saddam Hussein is hiding weapons of Earthling-scale material destruction. I did a Level 3 tele-scan on Dr. Hussein and he only had 4 WESMDs. One was intended for his ex-wife's private island in The Red Sea. Another was for Santa Claus' toy factory on the North Pole, a plan contracted to Iraq by Al-Qaeda as part of an anti-Christmas campaign intending to crush Western children's faith in Christianity. The third was to be sold to North Korea in exchange for information regarding the "Cartwheeling Honey Badger Meme Contingency Plan." The last warhead, "Divine Light," was to be saved for blowing up a potential asteroid heading to Earth, like in The Fifth Element ICBFFS traitor propaganda discus video. Both President Busch and Prime Dr. Hussein are dismantling invitation pride chips.

From September 2, 2005:
A nanotech vortex destroyed the U.S. city of New Orleans recently. On live television, an Earthling named Kanye West went above and beyond the call of duty to point out the American government's complicit apathy towards the plight of minorities. Ruby Rhod interrupted before Mr. Yeezy West said enough to be put on President Busch's waterboarding list. The American public proceeded to focus more energy on analyzing the hubbub surrounding West's befuddled outburst than on providing support for victims of the disaster. The Earthlings have demonstrated a stunted development of priority chips.

From November 5, 2008:
The Earthlings seem to be showing signs of progress. Many people from all nationalities are rejoicing at the Americans' election of a bi-racial President named Barack Hussein Obama. I was initially alarmed by this news because of "Barack"'s meaning in Morettishling: "streuselkuchen crusade." I was relieved to find that Earthling streuselkuchen is merely a delicious German cake, not an interdimensional anti-matter death blaster. Young, overly-optimistic people were particularly elated by Crumbcake Obama's election. They paraded through the streets of Washington, DC using steel trashcans as makeshift drums and spouting triumphant banter. Code Green Earthling 0836, Shea Kelly, who had long-since become disillusioned with the American political process, was excited about the prospect of a President with a vernacular that included real words and who was forthright about his previous marijuana usage. Mr. Kelly had the opportunity to join in the revelry of the spontaneous trashcan drum orgy, but he opted to return to his apartment to watch President-elect Obama's acceptance speech and smoke a marijuana vessel. In Crumbcake's honor, he didn't inhale.

From September 14, 2009:
The Earthling Yeezy West has been downgraded to Code Yellow. Last night he got inappropriately drunk at an awards show and stormed on stage to interrupt singer Taylor Swift's acceptance speech for a video trophy. He then spoke on behalf of his unwitting friend, the Earthling B. Fierce, in declaring what all male Earthlings had already unanimously decided: that "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)" was undoubtedly the best music video of all-time. Bootylicious singer/bionic-megatron, Mrs. Fierce, later resolved Kanye's blackout-induced temper tantrum by inviting Swift on stage to finish her speech while Beyonce was accepting her own music video trophy. President Streuselkuchen Crusade Obama concluded Mr. West's reprimanding by calling him a "jackass." Both Crumbcake and singing megatron Beyonce have been upgraded to Code Green for their actions.

From May 2, 2011:
Code Aquamarine 1488, Gandalf the Durka bin Laden, is deceased. I found no trace of his nanotech cloak and bodice. The Americans, as they have demonstrated for several surveys now, are prematurely and exorbitantly celebrating the destruction of an antiquated proxy of our eternal enemies, the Crab People of Earthling Mantle. Once again, the Earthlings have failed to uncover the true nature of another brainchild of the meddling Crab People. Our intel on the Crab People's next nanotech weapon will not be disseminated to the Earthlings. I haven't seen the Earthling's skepticism chips this low since Zoop 79, circa 1 CE Earthling time.

From October 31, 2011:
Found Elvis. I did a DNA scan and it's the real one this time. He was in a remote cabin in the Great Smoky Mountains playing both sides of a beer pong game. I will tele-scribe his memory and download it into the mothership's computer archives upon my return.
