From Eddie Griffin to Sade feat Jay-Z, We're talking about life...(Part 1)

What a crazy Sunday morning.

I woke up to Eddie Griffin's skit on Dr.Dre's 2001 album, which made me reflect on the upcoming brokenness of the next generation of youths, along with the hardships of living life and love. Then, I listen to the Sade feat. Jay-Z track, which is every bit worth the hype and buzz that everyone made it out to be.

I think I'll start with what all you live with, (actions)

At 27, counting backwards to 18 seems like Ive passed a few lifetimes in between. The woman I was she's married now to my knowledge, but its crazy because of where I was at, and what I struggled with then vs now is a long trip. But to speed this up, cause I can, (and I think I will later on) spend an entire post of reviewing 18 year old me. There are a lot of things I have to live with, there are are friendships that have stood the test of time, and we've known each other for over 10 years, I think I have only a small group of enemies, unless people holding grudges from '04 but I digress...

One of my biggest fears is being contacted by a woman from my past saying I have a child. Its scary because there is no telling how your actions will impact this child's life and personality, plus it hurts when there are gaps in history with people you live. Even with some of my closer friends, of 9 + years, I'm the "newest member of the crew" or the 10th member of Wu Tang, it feels odd when they refer to things that predates me. But with a child, its no telling how my absence will affect him/her. I know people now, who holds strong grudges due to the period the father wasn't in their life, even after the father was sad that he wasn't there. I feel its a bit unfair, but its hard when you're dealing with a broken heart. So I always keep communications open for any woman I part ways with when it comes to love.

I think Nas said it best Deadbeat daddies/ I pray for you/ cause when those kids get get grown its too late for you/ cause you're old then you're getting sh*tted on"

I hope I can avoid that fate

Update on the Mytouch Case charger

The angry users were right, which is sad.

After 3 days, short of me having to unplug the phone from the case, once the case starts charging it keeps charging until the case dies. The only bigger headache was the look on someone's face asking whats the issue.

The issue is, this will kill your battery by causing a state referred to as "memory" which is when a battery only stays at one state, due to excessive charging. If you've ever had a device with a battery that seems to die after a few minutes no matter how long you charge it...that's "memory." Now, memory is inevitable, but only after a few years of use, but using a case like that could shave off years or reduce it to months.

But like I said in my first post, its the first generation. Which means, after they shave down the bulkiness of the case, and address the lack of sensor, then we can move forward.

Lasers is here!!!

L.ove A.lways S.hines E.verytine R.emember 2 S.mile !!

By far one of the most anticipated rap albums of recent history, and yet a high disappointment.

Now before you attack me, hear me out, when we first heard of him doing the album, we heard Shining Down, and one of the biggest highlights of that song was "Rap name Lupe/ but my daddy named me warrior/ this is his memorial!" That was from a song that didn't become the lead single, and now we have a album that doesn't fully explore his inner views.

I was hoping to out L.A.S.E.R.S. Next to Nas "God Son", and Kanye West's 808 & heartbreaks as deep albums of lyrical children mourning their parents.

Now, now, Lasers isn't without its gems, infact, I will say that Beautiful Lasers (2Ways) is my favorite Lupe song - bar none. I just hate that there isn't a song that touched you like "Fighters" from The Cool. "Never Forget you" is beautiful but it can't shouldn't be the second deepest song serving as a glimpse into the mind of a man who touched us, and I know it sounds mean or harsh to down a cd because he didst touch on the inner workings of his heart and mind, but if you have to ask that question then are you a fan to begin with?

I have been a fan since revenge of the Jedi and the Fahrenheit series - and some before then. I will post my favorite Lupe songs soon, both commercial and mixtape.

My New Adventures with Powerskin for the Mytouch 4 from XPA..

So interesting, first sorry for the long delay, but I'm back..

First I decided to add a upgrade to my phone. I bought a powerskin, which is a case with a built-in charger. I had one for my iPhone, before someone broke it, but that's beside the point.

To give a mini review, so far like all the reports show, this makes your phone bigger and more bulky, the material of the case is soft silicone rubber similar to the one I purchased from T-Mobile, (huge lint magnet) is alright against random drops even on water (dropping your phone on a wet surface - never fully submerged...I've never dropped mine in the toilet) all the other reviews are right, it makes your phone more bulky. I don't mind because I often loose track of my phone in my pocket cause its so light, but if a bigger and heavier phone is a pet peeve, then pass on this product and go for a slim replacement battery or a pocket charger.

As far as functionality, the case is supposed to charge your phone when needed, but unlike other cases, there is no sensor, so you can't program when it starts or stops. There is a manual shutoff, because the case will charge till the case dies and I read a couple of bad reviews where the case started, and didn't shut off after the battery reached 100% it kept going till it shut off.

I have a pic of the case but I'll post a update to pictures with the phone in the case.

Please note this is a first gen case, which I'm excited about where they could go after they address the few gripes, plus make the case smaller, because this case is essentially a pocket charger inside a thin rubber case. But this is only day one, so let's see how this goes.

(pause If needed)
