20 years since this one came out (and on my Mom’s 38th, to boot). One of the greatest party anthems EVER…I’m sure a lot of people laughed this one off. Classic album nonetheless. Check it out if you haven’t had a chance yet.

My buddy put this together for me the other day as I was looking over his shoulder…a nice little (Warriors-colored) stamp to add to my ebay photos. I really need to learn some photoshop, though. Anyone know of any good resources out there?
Other than being one of the most memorable characters ever, I just learned that Omar Little is actually based on a real person. Another little known fact – Michael K. Williams considers himself ‘discovered by 2pac.’
This dude SBTG kinda came outta nowhere and ended up making a pretty big impact on the custom sneaker market. When he first started releasing pairs, I really just thought he was a local (NY) dude trying to make a name for himself…the prices on this kicks were comparable to retail prices and I did..
Caught this on the corner of Grant and Sutter (maybe?). I thought it was a pretty cool poster.
Apparently I’m years late with this but… I fell down the Vice rabbit hole the other day and came across a video that made me blush…even though I was at home…alone…and nobody else was around. This video and song has got me feeling some sort of way, I just don’t know what it is.
What would happen if blindness passed through like a contagion? What if, all of a sudden, the whole world went blind? It’s the subject of one of the most gripping books I’ve read in the past year…‘Blindness’ by Jose Saramago. It looks like there’s a movie out there, I gotta check that out…
I don’t know how or where I came across Minus the Bear, but I downloaded their latest album (about a year ago) while stuck in a hotel room in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. We listened to it quite a few times on that trip…but…any time I hear Infinity Overhead, I think of that hotel room. Anyway,..
I must confess…I have a fascination with North Korea. My fascination started with a Nat Geo documentary, then this Vice Guide to Travel, then a book called ‘Long Road Home’ and another book called ‘Escape from Camp 14’. I’ve got one more in the queue called ‘Nothing to Envy’. This stuff really screws with my..
Yes, I’ll be the first to say it – I discovered this band before anyone else did. And I’m proud of that fact. My friend Mike and I went to BB Kings in New York to see Slick Rick, Scarface & Goodie Mob in concert back in 2009 or 2010 and these guys from Boston,..
I’m not big on keeping up with latest version of expensive things. I bought an iPhone 4 three and a half years ago and it’s pretty much held up for me during that time. As with most things being used for hours upon hours over the course of more than a thousand days, it’s started..
Being that I pretty much grew up on a skateboard, I’m a huge fan of Jim Phillips’ art. Check it out.
We watched a very interesting documentary last night about fans of the Stanley Kubrick movie ‘The Shining’. A few of the theories were fascinating…I can’t say I bought them all but…wow. Highly recommended.
If you haven’t checked out Big KRIT yet, I’d highly recommend him (again). Definitely my favorite *new* rapper since maybe K’naan. If you’ve been around me any time within the past 2 (almost 3) years and asked me about what I’m listening to, I’m sure I’ve told you about this dude. And I’m sure you’ve ignored..
Just started this book the other day. It’s basically the life story of Vegan ultramarathoner Scott Jurek – this dude is the truth. I don’t know why, but when I feel like aspects of my life are lacking I feel the need to read about them as they stay fresh in my mind. Right now..
Just caught this on Vice’s music blog…sick video (reminds me of those days at The Wherehouse burnin through stacks and stacks of CDs). Great for the hip hop historian:
If you know me, you know I’ve been a Golden State Warrior fan for as long as I can remember. There was once a time I could name every shady trade, every bad decision, every ridiculous front office call. I loathed GSW management. Immediately after graduating from College, I got a job as a Front..
Everyone I know loves hearing Toni speak Jamaican Patois (including myself)…she showed me this the other day and I couldn’t stop laughing…
There used to be a really nice 9-foot hoop behind the Truckee Recs department, which made for some awesome photos for guys like me who couldn’t do anything special on a 10-foot regulation hoop. Cruz and I went out there one day for a nice little photo shoot. Here’s a few few of my favorites:..
I’m pretty religious about keeping my teeth clean. I want one. Bad. http://www.blizzident.com/index.html
As a kid I spent countless hours in this fine establishment digging through the crates. I went in these places so often (the nearest one was in Reno, NV), that I knew I’d see 95% of what I’d find in the racks the previous week I was there. I knew exactly where to look for..
Another great book I recently finished: A pretty fascinating story about a pretty average overweight guy that just decided he had enough of being out of shape. He started eating right (veggies) and started jogging before he decided he wanted to give an ultra-marathon a shot. At 40-something years old. Eventually, he went on to..
Commuted to work yesterday morning on my new (old) road bike. 6.5 miles up Balboa down through the TL. Decided to ride home today on a different route. Took ‘the wiggle.’ Highly recommended. What do you know about this here?
Looking forward to tomorrows commute…reading about one of Whitey Bulgers enforcers in ‘Street Soldier’ and the new Nickatina leaked… A great way to start the day. This definitely gets me in the mood:
How do I not have my own website? I guess I just need ideas and inspiration. I think I’ve got a few, though. Step 1? Just start it.
Given to my by my stepdad…a Dave Scott Ironman Centurion. I think I’m going to be getting a lot of use outta this thing…too bad it’s Laker colors. WWW Warrior 4 life WWW
If you haven’t seen this yet, you’re not livin:
My first Warriors game in Oakland cost close to $300 and left me hurting for a few days. They didn’t play particularly well and lost to the Spurs in Game 6…best part? Hanging with the bleacher crew and drinking $13 beers.
When I first discovered ‘The Great Mall’ in Milpitas back in 1998 or 1999, they had the worst stores imaginable. I don’t know when they decided to smarten up and add some places that people actually wanted to shop at, but I’m glad they did. One Saturday a few months ago, I found myself in..
Another HOT one from Killer Mike & EL-P…helluva video Killer Mike “BIG BEAST” Music Video from thomas bingham director on Vimeo.
