My Blog days are done. When I first wanted to post things on the site, I thought it would be cool and I can get information out to you that you normally don't hear. But since then, I've noticed that a lot of people are doing blog's.
Thanks for visiting the site.

VH1 Hip Hop honors
I think it's great that a channel that didn't show Hip Hop videos for years has changed their format and does shows attributed to Hip Hop. VH1 is aware that the Hip Hop audience doesn't watch their channel so this show is marketed to a non-Hip Hop crowd. It's another format at spreading the Hip Hop culture. Last year they honored: DJ Hollywood, DJ Kool Herc, KRS ONE, RUN DMC, Public Enemy, Rock Steady Crew, Sugarhill Gang, & Tupac Shakur. Their missing a Graf artist but this was a pretty diverse crowd of groups and individuals to honor. 2005 honorees are: LL Cool J, Grand Master Flash & The Furious Five, Salt-N-Pepa, Notorious Big, Big Daddy Kane, Ice T, & the movie Boyz In The Hood. This is a tight emcee line up but their lacking on Dee Jays and graf artist. What is really out of place is the movie Boyz In The Hood. It was a great movie and should be honored but their are a lot of other influential Hip Hop movies that came out, long before Boys In The Hood. There was definitely some politics involved in who they chose because, how is Fab 5 Freddy, one of the producers of this years show, and they didn't honor Wild Style! That was a big mistake because anyone that's remotely into Hip Hop knows how Wild Style is the first Hip Hop movie and is partly responsible for Hip Hop spreading around the world.

Swiffer Wetjet poison
I didn't know this! For those of you with animals......
I recently had a neighbor who had their 5-year old German shepherd dog put down due to liver failure. The dog was completely healthy until a few weeks ago. They had a necropsy done to see what the cause was. The liver levels were unbelievable, as if the dog had ingested poison of some kind. The dog is kept inside, and when he's outside, someone's with him, so the idea of him getting into something unknown was hard to believe.
My neighbor started going through all the items in the house. When he got to the Swiffer Wetjet, he noticed, in very tiny print, a warning which stated "may be harmful to small children and animals." He called the company to ask what the contents of the cleaning agent are and was astounded to find out that antifreeze is one of the ingredients. (Actually he was told it's a compound which is one molecule away from antifreeze). Therefore, just by the dog walking on the floor cleaned with the solution, then licking its own paws, it ingested enough of the solution to destroy its liver. Soon after his dog's death, his housekeepers' two cats also died of liver failure. They both used the Swiffer Wetjet for quick cleanups on their floors. Necropsies weren't done on the cats, so they couldn't file a lawsuit, but he asked that we spread the word to as many people as possible.
EVEN IF YOU DO NOT OWN A PET PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!

grafitti - a letter from Phase 2 aka True Mathematics
Interesting. Big up to the TATS brothers
Still you cats and the so called..."GRAFF"....nation need to recognize and realize...this...and it's far from an opinion...
Graffitti is primitive and it's for kids!!! Even if these brothers call what they do Graffitti....it's way more than that...and the world..the socalled writers and the media need to start to give Aerosol Culture and the highest degree of elements and art in it...more credit.
The very first generation never called it GRAFFITI...in the first place...they called it writing...which was actually their own style and reinterpretation of the English language... As long as you and whoever continue to view it as..."graffiti art"...it will be nothing more than that...and it (that terminology) will never say much no matter what the art looks like.
The same so called authorities that gave us inappropriate "appropriations" such as...NEGRO and (AMERICAN) INDIAN are the same ones who blessed us with nonsense like labeling our culture"graffiti"...Was it really their sincere intentions to serve justice to anyone connected to these absurdities???
It appears to be that...as long as writing and aerosol art is being done by "niggers*" wiggers* and "spics*" (the word *graffiti...is the equivalent) and not the so called upper echelon of acceptable so called artists and or individuals ...or even freaks...(Haring.. Basquait..Sharf) that it will continue to be viewed as far less than the incredible art and culture that it is...The proof is in the 30 plus years of it's existence and it's placement and perception in the world at large...
RESPECT TO MY BROTHERS....TAT...GET IT RIGHT!!!! CHANGE COMES WITH THE WILLINGNESS TO MAKE CHANGES!!!

Has the world forgotten Sabra and Shatila massacre?
Few days ago was the anniversary of the September 11 attacks on New York and Washington, but there’s another September tragedy the worldwide media has ignored— the bloody massacre of Palestinian refugees in Sabra and Shatila camps in Lebanon.
In September 1982, Lebanese Maronite Christian militias were sent by Israel to Sabra and Shatila refugee camps in Beirut, Lebanon, to find PLO members and kill Palestinian refugees.
The Christian Phalangist group are reported to have murdered entire families in cold blood in the Palestinian refugee camps of Sabra and Shatila.
The massacre was apparently revenge for the assassination four days ago of the Christian President-elect, Bashir Gemayel.http://news.bbc.co.uk/onthisday/hi/dates/stories/september/17/newsid_2519000/2519637.stm
An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. An old way of rules for us that never was dismissed.

George Bush doesn't care about black people
This was a very bold statement that Kanye West said on live TV. He basically took this whole situation and gave his opinion. You have to have a lot of nerve to call out a commander in chief of a country, but I feel the non-actions taken by our government allowed Kanye to say what he did.
Hurricane Katrina didn’t hit the U.S. in 20 minutes, like the Tsunami during the Christmas season last year. Our government knew this hurricane was going to hit our land and didn’t prepare for it. They had over a week to prepare for the damage. Was it because of the demographics of the race that lives in the south that were affected by Katrina? Who knows? But the fact is that the U.S. military has dozens of military bases located in the south that could have easily prepared for the worst. Let’s say that the government was 100% convinced that Katrina wasn’t going to hit land. Our military could of still mobilized tens of thousands of troops within 24 hours and help the victims. The U.S. military is the most advanced and best prepared military in the world. They could have built bridges, helped evacuate, pump the water out, etc. etc., right when Katrina hit, but the commander in chief decided not too. Why, we’ll never really know. But the next time you decide not to vote, remember your non-vote helped elect a president that chose not to help you when you really needed it.
YOU’RE VOTE COUNTS. USE IT TO PREVENT PEOPLE LIKE BUSH RUNNING THE MOST POWERFUL COUNTRY IN THE WORLD TODAY!
