Rocking with the best

You are now rocking with the best. The best damn bracketologist in 55 Washington Street. I picked UNC going all the way and lo and behold. There it is!

My man Greg who was the March Madness custodian informed I picked with 75% accuracy. Beating his 73% accuracy by the hairs of my chinny chin chin.

Sean May is a monster and those moving screens from Illinois were illegal. Plain and simple. Play ball instead of settling for jump shots.

Just got ‘She Hate Me’ from the good Netflix. I wonder what lesbians have to say about that flick. Spike seems to like to live out his fantasies through his movies. The e-Lamp becomes a bruh (School Daze), the violent revolutionary (Do The Right Thing), the repressed jazz musician (Mo Better), the swaggering pimp (Malcolm X), figurative killer of the sellout (Bamboozled). I wonder of She Hate Me is the embodiment of the heterosexual male fantasy.

The dude who played the lead was great. And his ex-girl who played Ray Charles’ wife is bad. She had much more sex appeal in this flick than in anything else I have seen her in. When she came out in the thong even Eb didn’t mind when I rewound. She does have a weird grill piece. Looks like she sucked her thumb too long when she was yout’. That white ball player was kind of sexy too. The cock diesel one was…scary.

What was the point of Q-Tip’s character? I love Tip, but he has yet to prove to be the best actor. Prison Song was real dope, though.

This is funny.

I still love Spike for his dedication to the craft. He still makes films you suckers are scared too make. I won’t join that Soul Plane, Bringing Down the House debate mainly because I haven’t seen those films, but I do concur with the broad reasoning.

UVa in the house! Alum and NY Times writer LOLA OGUNNAIKE was peeped on CNN Showbiz Tonight by the Swift Chancellor. Don’t really care about Britney’s reality show but good for Lola. (I must note that it was also UVa alum Chuck Wilson who wrote ‘Soul Plane’ and UVa alum rambling right now)

Look forward to seeing all at the Good Foot this Thursday to celebrate WBAI’s Underground Railroad.

(I bit the following blurb from Ian at Different Kitchen who bit it from Alma so it’s all good)

And in case y'all don't know, this is Jay Smooth's radio show we're talking about below:
