Rapping better than with zig-zags

Dang, this is actually the most frustrating thing to do.

Current Musical Gold: Installment 9

"I like music. It defines life, love, and everything in between. I also happen to have an abnormally ridiculous amount of music in my possession, most of which I listen to very very rarely because I have a tendency to overplay. As in, overkill. As in, when I'm feeling a song I will play that tuneage over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again until I am either sick of it, or it is inducted into my special itunes playlist simply titled LEGENDARY. Many songs have come and gone; only the chosen few have made it to LEGENDARY status. Every so often, because I like to share music that is good, I will post the tracks that I am feeling at the moment - the ones that are on trial to make it to LEGENDARY. Hopefully in this manner, you, my readers, will be able to expose yourself to a broader variety of good music. And who knows - maybe it'll even make your LEGENDARY."

Makeup artists are too talented

Sometimes I ponder as to whether girls like Princess Tamina actually exist.

Then I wake up and realize that I live in real life.

Boxscore from June 28, 2010

72-68 for Kobe's Jock (W)

Name of the game: I can't shoot.

3-6 from the line
9 points
11 rebounds
9 assists
3 steals
1 block
2 turnovers

Newsflash: I realized today what Coach Fichter has been telling me since grade 10 - if I develop a dependable shot and had any semblance of a left hand, I'd pretty much be unguardable. But for now, I'm just a slightly above-average small forward who plays good man defense and sets hard screens.

PS. I miss the days when Petey and Eddie and I would go 1 on 1 on 1 until Petey started complaining or we had to leave for prayer meeting or ICON. That was, still is, why I play this game of basketball.

21.6.10

Boxscore from June 21, 2010

60-52 for Kobe's Jock (W)

Name of the game: Return of the king previously injured and still somewhat sore but glad to be back small forward

1-3 from the line
3 points
3 rebounds
4 assists
1 steals
2 blocks
9 turnovers

Newsflash: It's nice to be back.
