Party Down: Steve Guttenberg's Birthday



One of my favorite episodes during the entire run of this series.

The reading of Roman and McLovin's screenplay was incredible.

This episode had a lot of heart. Too bad the future of the series is in doubt with many of the main cast leaving for other shows.

Enjoy it while it lasts.

The Roots - Straight Outta Compton (featuring Ice Cube)



Dope.

Too bad it was performed in front of a lame ass Jimmy Fallon crowd.

Old School Video: Otha Fish - The Pharcyde



"The lyrics on there are about one particular relationship I had, my one greatest love of all time, and she crushed the shit out of me." - Tre

Beautiful song and video.

One of the reasons I enjoy "Bizarre Ride..." more than Labcabincalifornia is because Tre sounds a lot more natural on this album. A lot of his "crooning" on later releases are a little too forced for my liking.

With one eye, he eliminated the San Antonio Spurs from the 2010 NBA Playoffs.

The White Ribbon (Michael Haneke, 2009)



A collection of fucked up individuals.

Michael Haneke tells a tale of a small German village as narrated by a schoolteacher, one of the few nice people you'll meet in this tale. Throughout the story The village leaders (Doctor, Priest, Baron) present themselves as superior, selfish, abusive, apathetic and worst of all, religious (ugh...). In response to this, the villagers respond with what Haneke describes as "every type of terrorism".


Not gonna lie...I laughed.

The first of these acts (opening the film) sends the good doctor flying off his horse, dislocating his shoulder in the process. This sets off a chain of events that leads the villagers to a state of fear and mistrust.

Good flick, though it may leave you a little cold after viewing it.

Chris Bosh

Nearing the end of his contract with the Toronto Raptors, All Star forward Chris Bosh has turned to Twitter, asking his followers where he should play and why.



Really, Chris?

You care so much about winning a championship that you're willing to take advice from fans? This is your career, and your decision to make. Ultimately he will make the decision on his own, but it's something that he should be taking seriously, and not used as fodder for his social media outlets (something he seems to love dearly).

Some advice for Chris in the future (wherever he lands). Chill out on trying to make yourself a media darling. You're a great guy, with a great personality. If you start proving you're a winner, that shit will come to you.

Less time on the Internet, more time building trust, confidence and friendships with your teammates. That's what real leaders do.
