Basketball, Films, Concerts, & All that good stuff

I feel like I had such a packed week and it's only Thursday!

On Monday night - I went to a Knicks game! whooohhooo!

I actually stopped being a Knicks fan since John Starks got traded many years ago....can you tell that I'm a John Starks fan? But in my opinion basketball itself just lost some kind of fire back in 2000. And can you believe it, I got a chance to see Mr. Starks!
He now works for the Knicks and that night he received some kind of check related to Black History!!

I was unable to get a clear photo of Mr. Starks but here's a throw back photo of when I met him a few years ago :)

On Tuesday, I had a quiet and cozy night and managed to watch a movie. It was an Alan Ball film (he wrote American Beauty) about an Arab American girl who has the worst parental situation in life and is discovering sex at age 13.

This movie had a lot of intense situations. The main character "Jasira" is molested by her mothers boyfriend, raped (unknowingly) by her racist neighbor played by Aaron Eckhart (yes Two-Face in The Dark Knight), and later continues to have sex with her black boyfriend that her father hates.

I kind of enjoyed the movie because it expressed that there are a lot of perverse things happening all over that people may sometimes overlook especially when it comes to little girls living in single parent homes or living under strict cultural or religious upbringings.

But what I didn't enjoy is that there was no happy ending...I'm a sucker for happy endings :(

Check out the trailer:

Then on Wednesday, I was taken to a film screening of a documentary titled "Estilo Hip Hop"

Estilo Hip Hop is a doc that tells the story of hip hop's rise in Brazil, Chile, and Cuba. There are 3 characters (Guerrillero Okulto, Eli Efi, and Magia) followed throughout the film. Their stories are amazing and they are all so humble and they all have a true sense of what hip hop is. I really enjoyed the filmmakers decision to include the artists' families and how they live.

I snapped a quick pic of the people behind the film during the Q&A

Check out the trailer and the Estilo Hip Hop official website for screening dates and locations.

I saw this film at 92Y Tribeca - a very nice spot for films and open mic nights.

Thennnnn.... I hopped over to Webster Hall to see the Youtube sensation: Kina Grannis.
She's an acoustic/pop singer guitarist. I've seen many of her original songs which she has performed and posted up on youtube and it was great to see her play live. The best part of the show was her performance with her sister.... check out some of her vids and youtube page.

And this is a photo of Kina last night performing.

Sexing in the morning...

This morning as I walked out of my apartment and turned to lock the door - I saw some cats rustling around. I didn't think anything of it until I finally locked both locks and looked at these cats.

They were sexin' 2 feet away from my front door and they were loud as hell.

Photo #1 - "The Act"

Photo #2 - "Additional Foreplay"

Photo #3 - "Clean up Time"

A little bit....

Today a friend, DJ Twrexx passed a track to me called Gifted. I heard him play the song a few times and for some reason today I had to hear it.

The song features Kanye West, Santogold and Lykke Li. And, now I'm totally obsessed with this Swedish Indie singer (Lykke Li)....

Go here to Download: Gifted

So I start searching around and omg I have to get all of her songs.....her voice is amazing.... she's even awesome live...

I love this song "A Little bit" check her out in Holland

and that's not all....... she has a remix to "A Little bit" featuring Drake.

Drake is a rapper/singer/actor who's better known as Jimmy from Degrassi. Degrassi was one of my favorite shows. It's a teenage soap opera (kids getting shot, boys using penis pumps, etc)

But listen to Lykke Li's remix with Drake... and after that I put a link to a video of Drake on Degrassi - it was a major scene in the show b/c he gets shot...

I wish this s**t was real...

Check out this video from The Onion, America’s finest news source.
The Onion has yet to fail me. Their videos are witty, original, and just plain funny.
Maybe because of all the cursing in this particular video or maybe it's the fact that new shit is just stupid sometimes and we've all experienced it.
This mock-news report is about Sony's latest product release.

Sit back and enjoy.

Falling in the snow

Last night...... I decided to rush to the local video rental store so I wouldn't have to pay a late fee and the next thing I knew I fell to the ground on a patch of ice....

I'm not sure if anyone saw me - but I know someone heard me b/c I screamed pretty loud.

I searched youtube to find a clip that best describes how I fell and see below the lady in the red shirt imitates my fall perfectly....

Just Ridiculous

Here are (3) photos I came across that are just plain ole' ridiculous.

#1 -

Where would you go to wear this dress? McDonald's? Burger King? Jack in the Box? Why?

#2 -

When I saw this photo - a tear came to my eye! (Which my dear blogger friend Candice witnessed and laughed) I do not think this is cute - I think it's sad.... we all know that kids are wacky but don't let the babies put wii accessories on their feet :'(

#3 -

This is a gummy bear chandelier. Whyyyyyyy people why? :-(

These things all make me a lil sad inside :-/
