Song of the Day

Title: Listen Up
Artist: E-Rule
Album: Listen Up/Synopsis EP



Listen up, check it, E-Rule's about to wreck it
Go in and floorin' in my aura in more reverse I got the works when I freak it
Disarm unique wits swarms I seek it
Diapharetic in the energetic
More than motion draws up kinetic, bein' combined with the vibe
Not a man'll transcribe, though they tried
I jot down it all it's raw indeed I rock the whole jam
Chumps know the program, identical to no man
When I get busy who is he - my formula rhymes
In parallel lines in perfect, mics to short circuit
Hark, it's worth it - I'm on the brink of blowin' up, y'all
Examine hits however they fall with mics in flight
Graphic when I grabs it, gab with forms of this sort
Words I comports with no but's and's or if's
Laid on the reel, eventually the skill'll build
I bag a skrill of the mentalism, ill and chill
When I feel I grow like shrubs over dubs indulgin' buds
Maybe 4-20 Team hits on the elements of green
What's the word? Travel more than six-third
Brothers in mad words to build upon the scene for the time bein'
Dips down to intervene God, what's the catch
Knows I can't freak a sketch, got a panoramic view
Plus I'm true, pull no stunts on the crew or you're through
That's a fact, future knack flung by the tongue
Hark to what the God brung, listen up

[Chorus]
[cuts and scratches]
"Listen!"
"Listen up, lend me your ear, stop and stare..."
"Listen!"
"Listen up, lend me your ear, stop and stare..."
"Listen!"
"Listen up, lend me your ear, stop and stare..."
"Listen!"

Flip I'm baggin' your click, mark my words - see you never knew
You wouldn't boast at all if you had heard my skills
Secluded in my unit rip rhymes to flow fluent
Manifest my Flatlands style
Be direct from the West I flare form and dare chumps to test
Try and press, I evanesce the stress, more or less
Marvelous my drifts, I stride boroughs through the fifth
When I shift my zone, got melodic tone
Flows I freak course the mic my resource so let me go on and check
Live and direct, to wreck a technique, I freak mad mad mystique
When I speak, I peak, E-Rule's unique
Fly as well, spark like a super bell blastin'
Punks are plastic, I'm drastic, ill like Romana
Diggin' Afrodonna's in order, no game retain my name
Here it is E-Rule supreme I get biz, you know the scene
That you quote, check what I wrote, recaps responses
No nonsense, here it is in true confound mannerism
Swarms gettin' warm due to the lingo that I give 'em
Like that, while you hark to my wis'
Checkin' for the sound God and there it is

[Chorus]

Fresh in the mind to freak thought in writin' rhyme
Born and inclined, I'm jukin' no chimes, sign of the no-times
I make a killin', talkin' willin' got the feelin'
All my skill and functions are modulations as I break trends
Meetin' ends with my master list my God sends
Got the format, many swore that, I wouldn't drop
Now I got props, you heard my chumpie, I never slump
See punks are left back, I'm ill like Lefrak, when I kick
My tone slick drifts to fit, manifestin' this
Darts thoughts emerge on a hit
You know this foul words you never utter
'Cause you know the God's butter
Got my game down pat so my sound's fat
Flow from the end of the pound tracks, rip it then max
I beez aloof to the punks, flowin' the gimmicks and acts
I got the formula I'm warnin ya the vibe be mad ill
Expade'in through the feel you're feelin', it's that appealin'
Greenbacks I'm reelin', aloof to kids who be stealin'
I'm not your fool, not a punk or servile
I'm magnanimous, I grow like canibus, never animous
When I unfold, hope the next man don't plan to bust gold
My form is, after swarm is, enormous the wordin'
Of born is, showin' 'em all what gettin' warm is - indeed
Harken as I proceed
E-Rule the wise appraise 'em all
Got a next level song and then I'm gone

[Chorus]

Thought of the Day

Why is a restaurant named as such if you go there to eat, rather than to rest? If anything, a hotel should be called a restaurant. From now on I'm going to use the more suitable title, eatery, instead of restaurant.

Song of the Day

Title: How Ya Like Me Now
Artist: Kool Moe Dee
Album: How Ya Like Me Now



I throw my tape on
Then I watch ya
Three seconds later
I got ya shakin' your head
Dancin' instead of sittin'
The rhymes kick
The beats hittin' you
Just like a home run
Slammin' like a slam dunk
Riding the wave that James Brown gave funk
It happened to James like it happened to me
How you think I feel to see another MC
Gettin' paid usin' my rap style
And I'm playn' the background meanwhile
I ain't with that
You can forget that
You took my style
I'm takin' it back
I'm comin' back like "Return of the Jedi"
Sucker MC's in the place that said I
Could only rock rhymes
And only rock crowds
But never rock records

How ya like me now (2x)

Now brothers are riding me
Like a pony
I'm no phony
I'm the only real micaroni
Playin' the mic like it's supposed to be played
New jacks, you all shoulda stayed out of the business
What is this, amateur night at the Apollo?
Get off this stage, I'm in a rage
I'm like a lion that's been trapped in a cage
I'm the real king, rap is a jungle
I never understood, how could one go
To a party, watch me, stand around and jock me
Become a rapper, then try to rock me
Scheming like a demon, you're screamin' and dreamin'
I'm from the old school, I used to see men
Die for less, but I'm not living that way
I'll let my mic do the talkin'
And let the music play

How ya like me now (2x)

Rap is an art
And I'm a Picasso
But of course
Why else would you try so
Hard to paint a picture, and try to get ya
Self in my shoes, but they won't fit ya
I'm bigger and better, forget about deffer
Every time I rocked the mic, I left a
Stain in your brain that will remain
Stuck in the back of your brain 'til you see me
Again, respect, I come correct
The rhymes I select are nothing short of
Vernacular's pure and I can insure
Life or death with my breath, my voice is a cure
I heal life from the words I spread
I'll make a sick man rock on his death bed
Sucker MC's, I'll make your girl say "ow"
She's jockin'

How ya like me now (2x)

I could continue
There's more on the menu
But I relax 'cause I'm so far in you
You had enough
I know you're overstuffed
And If I keep going
You'll be throwin' up
Old rhymes I used to say
Way back in the day
When you used to
Come to my parties and pay
Nobody's ever gonna rack me
This I vow
So all I wanna say is

How ya like me now (2x)

How ya like me now (fade out with echo)

Quote of the Day

The best way to keep your daughter out of hot water is to put some dishes in it. - Anonymous

State of the Union

Since there are many topics I want to address regarding Obama's speech Tuesday night, I figure it's best to list them and attach a brief summation of my thoughts on each subject. I've organized them in chronological order as they occurred in the broadcast:


- the opening: I hope I'm not the only person who's irritated by the rehearsed, contrived nature of these events. It dilutes the event of its potential to captivate viewers and ruins the anticipation of the moment. Does BO really have to shake 333 people's hands before he takes the stage? Do the Dems and Reps really have to act cordial towards each other to convey a falsified sense of camaraderie on Capitol Hill? If these people want to convince skeptics it's not all a game of charades they should pretend they don't like each other when the camera's rolling. The only part of this opening that felt genuine was the brief embrace between BO and Gabby Giffords.

- "safer, more respected" comment: BO claimed that the current generation of troops has made the U.S. safer and more respected than it's ever been. While I might agree with the first part, anyone who talks to foreigners knows that's a dubious statement. The majority of my non-American friends have a poor opinion of this country, and that sentiment was mostly shaped by our unnecessary, ill-conceived, and arguably illegal military action in Iraq and Afghanistan. I call B.S.

- high school drop-out policy: Are you kidding me? This has to be the most inane proposal BO has advocated during his tenure. What is the penalty going to be for dropping out before your 18th birthday? Does he plan on giving minors jail time for breaking this law? I think BO overlooked that a law like this hinders the corporatocracy's agenda of cultivating a listless, obedient, uneducated workforce. The powers that be would keep this "no drop-out" bill from seeing the light of day.

- clean energy tax credits: Brilliant idea. The only problem is oil companies will lobby relentlessly to keep this from being passed. Considering the ubiquity of "legal bribes" in Congress, it wouldn't be difficult for oil lobbyists to protect themselves from this threat. Be that as it may, I'm glad BO is talking about weening ourselves off our dependency on oil in front of a large home audience.

- infrastructure, debt: Although it's obvious much of the budget we formerly allotted to the Iraq War should be used to pay off the national debt, I was happy to see BO plans on committing half of that money to making desperately needed upgrades to our infrastructure. This is something I believe has been neglected for too long. Entirely too many highways and rails in this country are outdated and cumbersome. The transportation grid should look like The Jetsons by now, not the Flintstones.

- "spilled milk" joke: I enjoy BO's corny jokes, so I'm glad he when out of his way to amuse himself here. I think Norm Macdonald wrote this for him.

- payroll tax cuts: This is a no brainer to me. A tax increase on half of the country's population
in the current economic environment would be cruel and unsustainable for the average employee. Someone living paycheck to paycheck cannot afford to lose $40 from each payday. Working class people shouldn't bear the burden of an economic crisis caused by white-collar greed, corruption, and irresponsibility and a government that was complicit in exacerbating the problem.

- eliminate "insider trading between Congressmen, stockholding in industries they impact, self-serving campaign donations": Duh! Many things need to be done to prevent corrupting factors and conflicts of interest between Congress, corporate America, and special interest groups. These laws need to be as strict as possible and should carry heavy consequences. I thought BO's mentioning of money's corrosive effects in politics was a poignant variation of one of my favorite maxims: absolute power corrupts absolutely.

- reprimanding Iran, preventing them from getting nuclear weapons: What about North Korea? Why is it that all of our concerns about nuclear capability are focused on the Middle East? Iran doesn't have nuclear weapons and the international community has bombarded them with so many sanctions they probably have trouble getting the necessary materials to build a microwave or bottle rocket, let alone a nuclear missile. I might just be paranoid, but the less I hear about the U.S. sorting through North Korea's dirty laundry the more uneasy I am.

- Seal Team 6 flag anecdote: When BO started talking about the Seals' names embroidered on the flag, I was hoping he would list them as Doc, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, Bashful, Sneezy, and Dopey. Or Rudolph, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen.

- "teamwork" ending: Thanks Coach Obama! It's always good to know your President has team spirit.

- lastly, the brash nationalistic tone of the speech: I was halfway expecting Obama to holler, "This is America, if you don't like it, you can git out!" There was a lot of misplaced, excessive patriotism going on in both the speech and the crowd's responses that came off as arrogant and borderline xenophobic. Especially when BO began speaking about China evading trade and manufacturing policies and the camera immediately cut to an anonymous Asian man. Wow.

Overall impression: I see these speeches as nothing more than a ploy to instill enthusiasm and hope in the populace with promises of bills that will probably never make it to the floor of either house. Nonetheless, BO was eloquent and persuasive as always, and made some proposals that could conceivably be passed into law without much deliberation. If BO wants that crucial "elimination of corrupting factors" he's going to have to be persistent and show some moxie to convince members of Congress to essentially audit themselves. Seems like a tough bargain.

Never thought that we would ever be more than friends
Now I'm all confused 'cause for you I have deeper feelings
We both thought it was cool to cross the line
And I was convinced it would be alright
Now things are strange, nothing's the same
And really I just want my friend back

[Chorus]
And my mind's gone half crazy 'cause I can't leave you alone (oh can't get you out of my system)
And I'm wondering if it's worth me holding on (holding on)
Said my mind's gone half crazy 'cause I can't leave you alone (can't get you out of my system)
And I'm wondering if it's worth me holding on (yeah)

I'd hate to walk away from you as if this never existed
'Cause when we kissed the moment after I looked at you different
Lately I gotta watch what I say
'Cause you take things personally nowadays
You used to laugh, now you get mad
Damn, I just want my friend back (yeah yeah)

Oh oh oh oh oh yeah
What happened to the one I used to know? Oh yeah yeah
The one I used to laugh and joke with
The one I used to tell all my secrets
We used to chill and be down for whatever, whenever together yeah

Thought of the Day

If governments were truly interested in curtailing illegal activity, specifically the drug trade, then they would simply discontinue paper currency. The black market relies almost entirely on hard cash, and if central banks stopped issuing bills it would be crippled. How many illegal products can you buy with a credit or debit card? How could a drug dealer fly under the radar if he's continually depositing hundreds of $10 and $20 personal checks? This seems like an obvious and practical solution to the problem, and the fact it hasn't been implemented or even discussed by politicians bolsters conspiracy theorists' beliefs that governments surreptiously manipulate and profit from the black market.

Title: Sitting, Waiting, Wishing
Artist: Jack Johnson
Album: In Between Dreams



Now I was sitting, waiting, wishing
That you believed in superstitions
Then maybe you'd see the signs
But Lord knows that this world is cruel
And I ain't the Lord, no I'm just a fool
Learning loving somebody don't make them love you

Must I always be waiting, waiting on you?
Must I always be playing, playing your fool?

I sing ya songs, I dance a dance
I gave ya friends all a chance
Putting up with them wasn't worth never having you
And maybe you been through this before
But it's my first time
So please ignore
The next few lines 'cause they're directed at you

I can't always be waiting, waiting on you
I can't always be playing, playing your fool
I keep playing your part
But it's not my scene
Won't this plot not twist?
I've had enough mystery
Keep building me up, then shooting me down
Well I'm already down
Just wait a minute
Just sitting, waiting
Just wait a minute
Just sitting, waiting

Well if I was in your position
I'd put down all my ammunition
I'd wondered why'd it taken me so long
But Lord knows that I'm not you
And If I was I wouldn't be so cruel
'Cause waiting on love ain't so easy to do

Must I always be waiting, waiting on you?
Must I always be playing, playing your fool?
No I can't always be waiting, waiting on you
I can't always be playing, playing your fool, fool

Whenever you watch those shows like World's Wildest Police Videos, why do all the high-speed chases seem to take place in southern California? I remember being a kid and thinking of California as an insane place to live where your daily commute inevitably included having to avoid collisions with criminals' vehicles and the police cruisers chasing them.

Sail on, sail on, sail on, sail on

Tried to see if I'll give up
But there wasn't any luck
It's a fact, a fact of life
That's the game, game of strife everything is all in stride

So I'm sailing, yeah I'm sailing on
I'm moving, yeah I'm moving on
Sail on, sail on, sail on, sail on

Sail on, sail on, sail on, sail on

But she don't wanna seem like she easy
I ain't saying what you won't do
But you know we probably gonna do
What you been feenin' deep inside
Don't lie now

Girl what you drinking?
Gonna let sink in
Here for the weekend
Thinking
We can
See what we can be if we press fast forward
Just one more round and you're down I know it
Fill another cup up
Feeling on yo butt, what?

You don't even care now
I was unaware how fine you were before my buzz set in, before my buzz set in....

[Chorus]
Blame it on the Goose
Got you feeling loose
Blame it on Patron
Got you in the zone
Blame it on the a a a a a alcohol
Blame it on the a a a a a alcohol
Blame it on the vodka
Blame it on the Henny
Blame it on the Blue Top
Got you feeling dizzy
Blame it on the a a a a a alcohol
Blame it on the a a a a a a alcohol

[Verse 2: Jamie Foxx]
Oh see
She spilled some drank on me
And now I'm knowing she's tipsy
She put her body on me
And she keep staring me right in my eyes
No telling what I'm gonna do
Baby I would rather show you
What you been missing in your life when I get inside.

Girl what you drinking?
Gonna let sink in
Here for the weekend
Thinking
We can
See what we can be if we press fast forward
Just one more round and you're down I know it
Fill another cup up
Feelin' on yo butt, what?

You don't even care now
I was unaware how

Fine
You were before my buzz set in, before my buzz set in....

[Verse 3: T-Pain]
Girl I know you feel good
Dancing like you look
Couple more shots you open up like a book
I ain't trippin' (cause I'ma read ya)
Shawty I ain't trippin' (I just want to please ya)
I'ma take a shot of Nuvo
Shawty then you know
It's goin' down we can go and kick it like judo (judo)
You know what I mean
Shawty got drunk thought it all was a dream
So I made her say ahh, ahh ahh
Now she got her hand on my leg
Got my seats all wet in my ride (all wet in my ride)
All over my ride (all over my ride)
She look me dead in the eye, eye eye
Then my pants got bigger
She already knew what to figure
Had her looking her boyfriend like fuck that nigga

Screaming money ain't a thang
If it ain't throw it up in the skyyy (sky)

Album: Clancy's Tavern



Now red solo cup is the best receptacle
From barbecues, tailgates, fairs and festivals
And you sir do not have a pair of testicles
If you prefer drinkin' from glass

Hey red solo cup is cheap and disposable
In fourteen years they are decomposable
And unlike my home they are not foreclosable
Freddie Mac can kiss my ass, woo!

[Chorus]
Red solo cup, I fill you up
Let's have a party, let's have a party
I love you red solo cup, I lift you up,
Proceed to party, proceed to party

Now I really love how you're easy to stack
But I really hate how you're easy to crack
'Cause when beer runs down, in front of my back
Well, that, my friends, is quite yucky

But I have to admit that the ladies get smitten
Admirin' at how sharply my first name is written
On you with a Sharpie when I get to hittin'
On them, to help me get lucky

[Chorus]

Now I've seen you in blue and I've seen you in yellow
But only you red will do for this fellow
'Cause you are the Abbott to my Costello
And you are the Fruit to my Loom

Red solo cup, you're more than just plastic
More than amazing, you're more than fantastic
And believe me that I'm not the least bit sarcastic
When I look at you and say:
"Red solo cup, you're not just a cup (No, no, God no)
You're my friend, yea (Lifelong)
Thank you for being my friend"

[Chorus 2x]

Thought of the Day

It irritates the hell out of me when people use the phrase, "at the end of the day," when making some sort of conclusive statement. The same can be said for, "when it's all said and done." These phrases always seem to make people sound self-righteous and preachy. Not to mention the phrases have become so hackneyed they've lost their dubious effectiveness.

I never thought I'd die alone
I laughed the loudest who'd have known?
I trace the cord back to the wall
No wonder it was never plugged in at all
I took my time, I hurried up
The choice was mine I didn't think enough
I'm too depressed to go on
You'll be sorry when I'm gone

[Chorus]
I never conquered, rarely came
16 just held such better days
Days when I still felt alive
We couldn't wait to get outside
The world was wide, too late to try
The tour was over we'd survived
I couldn't wait till I got home
To pass the time in my room alone

I never thought I'd die alone
Another six months I'll be unknown
Give all my things to all my friends
You'll never step foot in my room again
You'll close it off, board it up
Remember the time that I spilled the cup
Of apple juice in the hall
Please tell mom this is not her fault

[Chorus]

I never conquered, rarely came
Tomorrow holds such better days
Days when I can still feel alive
When I can't wait to get outside
The world is wide, the time goes by
The tour is over, I've survived
I can't wait till I get home
To pass the time in my room alone.
