Top 3 Weirdness of The Week

Here are the Top 3 Weirdest Photos from the Internet this week (starting with #3):

#3 - Barack Obama addressed Congress this week and I guess someone took the opportunity to photoshop our President as a pimp..



#2 - Chris Brown attended one of Jean Paul Gaultier's fashion shows this week and he just so happened to take a picture w/ Jean Paul looking beat down and bloody... *awkward*



#1 - Oh Kelis... one of my favorite r&b chicks has gone crazy.... This is what she wore to the 1st annual Data Awards,,,, I admire her attempt to be original but this outfit is just reminds me of Neytiri from the movie Avatar ... (see the comparison)

Crazy in Love - Covered

Happy Friday All,

The other day at work I was searching for a music track to accompany some visuals and I came across this awesome cover by The Magic Numbers of my favorite Beyonce song "Crazy in Love".

I love when artists perform really well thought out covers, when someone can put their own flair into a popular song it really works.

If you've never heard Beyonce's "Crazy in Love" check out the video here.... then check out some covers that I've came across.

Taco Hunter: Taco Tasting #1


On my walk home from the gym I decided to stop at a restaurant on 38th street named: Taco's Mexico.

Here are my likes, dislikes, and grade of the tacos:


What I Ordered:
(1) grilled chicken taco
(1) beef taco



Likes:
The taco's were filling.
They were not too messy.
The service was fast.
The chicken was seasoned very well.
I love the fresh cilantro.
The avocado mixed with the chicken was delicious.

Dislikes:
The steak was overcook (some pieces were a bit charred)
The restaurant was kind of empty - I expected it to have more people being that it's in a popular location and they have a pool table in the restaurant.
The cashier was not friendly or helpful. She was way too preoccupied by 2 other customers that were walking out without paying for their meal.

Taco Grade: C+


Note: I do not recommend the steak taco, it was chewy, over cooked, I couldn't even finish it. I can not see myself going back here for tacos.







I'm still taking recommendations on where I should have tacos.

The Ultimate Sleepy Monday!

Happy Monday All!

The holiday's are over (unfortunately) and I know a lot of people who have to go back to school and back to work from a long and well deserved break.

Today is definitely a "Sleepy Monday".

This photo was taken on 74th street in Queens.
I was not on this Manhattan bound E-train, but these people were right in front of me when the doors opened (did you notice that there are 2 people featured in the photos?).




Good Luck everyone!

10 things that make me happy


Happy New Year!! I look forward to much more blogging, much more socializing, and creating more videos.

A lot of bloggers seem to be posting resolution lists.... I'm not about resolutions, I'm more about self exploration so I've decided to do a list of things that make me happy (instead).


I got the idea from someone's blog and the instructions were to make a list indicating "10 things that make you happy" and tag 10 bloggers that brighten your day.

10 Things that make me happy:

#1 - My Computer .. I've had her for about 4 years... we've been through a lot...



#2 - Bubble tea ... it's a delicious tea beverage with tapioca balls in them,,,, the first time I tried bubble tea I didn't like it.. but after my second try I was hooked.... I even have a vip card for my favorite bubble tea house


#3 - Three-Hour Hindi Musical Romantic Comedies... It may sound torturous but I get so happy watching these movies... all of the situations are so unbelievable but the music and dance scenes are just lovely





#4 - Dumplings .... I can always eat dumplings... they are just delish (as a matter of fact last week I just had shrimp and corn dumplings in Flushing for $3.00.. they are delish and just so cheap .... that's too much yum for one person)

#5 - Television Series... I could stay at home and watch an entire season of a tv show... my latest show that I managed to catch up on is Dexter.... I have a habit of finding a tv series that's in its 4th or 5th season and I love the thrill of watching a season back to back.





#6 - A well put together ipod/iphone playlist .... A good song list can get you through anything

#7 - Being in good company ... there are a few people that I really enjoy being with .... and I always seem to have a great time with them... here's a lil photo montage of the usual suspects



#8 - Podcasts..... My two favorite podcasts that always make me smile are Keith and The Girl and Distorted View Daily



#9 - Cupcakes ... I just love cupcakes ... who really hates cupcakes? Here's a pic of the cutest cupcakes I've ever seen...



#10 - New electronics... When I purchase a new electronic devise (phone, keyboard, mouse, harddrive) I get so happy and spazzy ,,,


10 Blogs/Blogger That Always Brighten My Day:


  1. Cortes Creates "Black Book" Blog
  2. Hell and Heartaches
