NATALIE PORTMAN SPITTING..


*Flashback joint. Funny shit

WHATADOSE # 33


Heritage Research revised the classic Quoddy Grizzly Boot with a “specially developed Vibram sole unit that mimics a moccasin sole. This is the first time that any Quoddy product has ever had a Vibram sole which is interesting.” Heritage Research have also spun in their ‘Lazy Arrow’ stitch which appears on many of their shirt pockets onto the toe. “The boot itself is made from Russet Bison and Peanut leather with a Chocolate deerskin bellows tongue.” Look for these in late April.

LOSING IS THE NEW WINNING(IN THIS CASE)

Ok, we’re well into the 2010 swing of things, and it just dawned on me how 2009 began and ended. Especially in regards to so called friends and passers-by.

Ex.1

I had a close cat I’ve known since 7th grade or so (he'll be Rodney for now). I took care of him, and he stayed at my house when needed to. I put him down with chicks, and when he'd get into trouble we'd handle it. He’d go to jail, and we’d be back chilling. I hadn't seen him since 2002, and I ran into his brother and asked how he was and etc. Booom!! I gave his brother my number like “yooo, tell your brother to holla at me.” Boom, Boom, Boom!! Rodney calls, and it’s like riding a bike. We’re back rocking and rolling; like when we were young bucks, wildin'. So next, boom let's chill. No question. There was a party poppin’ off, the perfect opportunity to chop it up and catch up. So, my two cousins, Rodney and I planned to do the damn thing that night. Boom! Everything is 100; drinks were flowing, other shit being passed around etc. It was a good night, and then Rodney goes in on how he's iller than me. I'm like, “ok my dude.” It was all shits and giggles. I had enjoyed the night, and I was not really in the debating mood, just chilling. So Rodney went on and on and on. In so many words, he said his time in the penitentiary made him an iller dude. The conversation is getting heated and he had a look in his eyes. So I'm like “shit Rodney, you want to fight me or something. “ He's like, “it's whatever right now,” I’m looking at him like he's got to be drunk. I figure I'm just gone take him home, and let him chill. Mind you, one of my cousin’s has a shorter fuse than I, and he doesn’t know Rodney like I do. My cousin, (well call him George) is like “kill him.” I'm like naaah, it’s the drink. Rodney is swearing he knows what he's doing. So on and on, and I'm like “Rodney do you hear yourself.” Long story short, haven't talk to Rodney in a while. I mean it’s hard enough finding or running into genuine people then to have a childhood homie turn rogue and want to fight ya, etc. I'm a little older now and figure myself a cooler head, years back Rodney and I would’ve fought just on principle. I didn't, because what would that solve? I was more hurt by it, not threatened, not at all. It was like that was my brother holding a gun to my head and trying to hurt me. Know'm sayin'. There's more to the story, I just gave a brief summary. More was said and other shit popped off too. This situation reminds me of a song in rotation right now. Here it is:

IS ANYBODY STILL LISTENING..

Ok, I'm still heavy on Jay Electronica's Exhibit C. I mean, I haven't heard someone eat a beat like that in a while. I digress. I told a friend about it and they kinda gave me the Kanye shrug like aghh. I said, did you not hear what he was saying? Who out right now, besides Mos and a couple others eat beats like that, not many. My opinion. For me this and this caliber of illness changes things. I've settled with a lot of bullshit, cause of beats or the lack of good shit out. No more. Here it is again..

2010!!

Two Thousand and Ten, already. Seems like yesterday it was 2000, I was wildin' and playin' basketball like crazy. Nothing else matterd. Good times, not to say shit sucks now. The stress of the economy and job market, healthcare has taken the air outta some people. I gotta admit though, I was taken outta my element as well and didn't accomplish what I and what we sought out to do as a whole. Life happened. The Microwavable Life happened. I mean shit, we are the pioneers of it. Not to say we live it better, but we fall into it. That's how it all started. It's a act way before it's a line or blog, know'm sayin. With that said, I feel we have an opinion as well and plan to continue to do what we sought out to. So, if you was down stay down and I wish everyone a happy new year, honestly. I truly feel this one will be like none other for everyone. Godspeed.
