Final Analysis: 5 Finger Review: Santogold

Santogold has been getting alot of hype about her self-titled debut album. It's well-deserved too, given the hot singles she's previously released. The album does deliver but not all-the-way. I consider it a "creeper" because that is exacty what it does - creeps up on you ... the more i listen the more i like. But it still has some lackluster moments.

• "Creator"
• "Lights Out"
• "Unstoppable"
• "You'll Find A Way (Switch & Sinden Remix)"

• I wish the overall production had a little more "Flash" to it

Final Analysis: solid debut - 3 Fingers (out of 5) Words by:Rontronik

Sneaks of the Week

Refined footwear for the RENaissance Man.
Yea I know they been out for a minute but one of our resident kicks connoisseurs Noisette aka the Internet Indiana Jones had to put the brand through his rigorous testing (basically how many head turns he gets in the streets of NYC).
Now he blesses you with the hottest thing since tar on a Brooklyn street on a 100-degree summer day.

Every event is now covered:
Boating in the Hamptons,
The invite to "that" party (you know the one you were NEVER getting into).
Copping the fresh Obey t-shirt with the sick cargo shorts for spring (of course… while in Barcelona),
Driving down Santa Monica Blvd in the new Land Rover…
Or just plain stuntin' thru soho on a perfect Saturday. CLAE fills the need.

Blacren introduces you to.. CLAE enjoy.

Noisette's formula for success? EVERY pair in the "Russell" collection.
Words By:Noisette

A McCain and Rambo Ticket

Who do you want answering the phone at 3 a.m.?
When that question was presented to us, I thought about it.
Certainly it won't be John McCain after his comments (and his apology)a few months back.
I kept thinking of Rambo in First Blood and the scene where he flips out after catching flashbacks while a prisoner of war in Vietnam.
Last week McCain was endorsed by Sylvester Stallone and my fears were confirmed.
Can you imagine John McCain catching flashbacks at 3am when he gets that call?
Maybe he'll seek advice from Rambo.

The Sparkle Nation Podcast

For the past two years Sparkle Nation has introduced me to music that I'd probably never find on my own. What better way to share this with you then to have her do a podcast? Enjoy!

I recorded this mostly in one take. There are glitches/mistakes
throughout, and some parts don't make much sense, but I'm sticking
with the original because the overall theme is nightlife. My song
selection speaks to the "scene" I've been a part of for the last two
years in New York. These are almost all songs I've either heard out
at night or DJed at a club myself. So basically, this is my musical
identity as Sparkle Nation... and an ode to my DJ friends and their parties.

Chick of the Week

It's been quite sometime since I've done a chick of the week(No Pun Intended).
I came across the Boarding Gate trailer starring Asia Argento daughter of Famed Italian Director Dario Argento.
Some of you may remember her from the Vin Diesel movie XXX and probably want to forget that cinematic masterpiece. Anyways I saw a few of her Italian films and was feeling her back in the day, I'm glad she's back. I won't be first in line for Boarding Gate but it'll definitely be on my Net Flix Que cause you know she's going to get nekkid.

Guess Who's Black?

I'm sure many of you have heard about the new Ben Stiller movie Tropic Thunder a spoof of Vietnam war movies. In it a well know white actor(who'll be revealed later) portrays one of the films lead characters Kirk Lazarus who by the way happens to be black.
When I got the pic from Rontronik my first reaction was shock at the perfect resemblance, an hour later Skim sent me the link with a warning of "please don't filp out". I have to tell you I'm not mad at it, black comedians have been impersonating white folks for quite some time. If this is an accurate portrayal and in the context of the character then kudos to to Robert Downey Jr. and Ben Stiller.
If it's on some Blackface S!@# then... Anywho check out the rest of the story at EW.com


No We Can't!

We can't endorse an Obama ticket with this type of garbage.
I won't front on the Hunnie factor but I can't trust Will.he.ain't with delivering a message, I thought I was watching an infomercial for Metemucil.
Is this why Obama lost Texas and Ohio? ;)

I think it's time we call on Quincy Jones to make shit right, peep his line-up.
His team was Fierce!, Fierce! 25 Year Anniversary for Thriller, still number one What Son!

Joe Louis (America's Hero Betrayed)

My dad and I always argued about who was the greatest heavyweight boxer of all time, Joe Louis or Muhammad Ali.
He's all about Joe Louis ( "You young folks don't know squat about true boxing") after watching the HBO documentary this past Monday ... Dad you may be right.


Skimkim Tomato Soup & Grilled Cheese

First things first:
I wanted to get this recipe out before Valentine's Day so that you guys could woo your lady friends...unfortunately (for you), I was preparing for V-day and belated birthday celebration of my own to Puerto Rico. Heh heh. So, I had to leave you to your own devices. I know, you were all eagerly waiting by your computers for a helping hand from Skim. Sorry.

Its been brick lately. Brick. So I decided to take a classic warming comfort food, tomato soup, and make it romantic. Many of us grew up with this dish and always had a grilled cheese to dip. So, of course, I am including that as well–cept this one has moist flavorful roast chicken to boot. Sooo good.

Puerto Rico was amazing. We flew into San Jose and took a mini-plane to Vieques, an island off the east coast. Undeveloped and gorgeous. I talked to Todd at Kingsize who was covering my shifts and he had already shoveled the sidewalk 3 times while I was busy applying lotion on my sunburnt tummy. Anyhoo, obviously, I love rubbing my beach trip into your pale, stressed out faces but let me get on with the food. My boobs are still peeling...by the way.

The X-Box 360 or PS3?

I've been holding out on purchasing a Next Gen system.
The Xbox 360 was clearly my first choice but with the Blu-Ray HD-DVD format wars put to rest the PS3 might be the way to go. After seeing the trailer for Final Fantasy Versus XIII I'm feeling nostalgic for the old Final Fantasy VII days.
PEEP the trailer, your advice on which Next Gen system I should go with is welcomed.


Hillary: Bitter Much?

Last night's debate provided more entertaining moments
The Tape Don't Lie

The Farrakhan Question: WTF? While you're at it Tim Russert throw a turban on the table and ask Obama if he is in fact Osama.
"SHAME ON YOU" for pulling that card, I'm surprised he didn't ask Hillary if she'd take a week off every month as President of the United States for "Feminine Issues." Folks need to chill and stick to the Issues, this should not be about Gender or Race.

THE WIRE: Foreshadowing in season 3

For those of us who watch The Wire the question on our minds is what's going to happen to Omar?(Tonight we find out.)
Some of you may already know, but what's interesting is that way back in season three
(Season 3: Episode "Dead Soldiers") there's some foreshadowing going on. Pay attention to the kids that Bunk is observing and how the scene plays out. Hmmm is that a young Kenard trying to wrestle the stick from his fellow playmate who is pretending to be Omar?

The 2008 Grammy Awards: Kanye West

You know after Kanye's acceptance speech our Miss. Ash was going to have something to say...

Miss Ash:
Although he had no reason to throw a full-on tantrum this time, Kanye West still managed to act like a complete douche at the 2008 Grammy Awards last night. How you gonna scold the entire Grammy orchestra in the name of “good taste”? Irony much?

Listen Kanye - you won an award just like all the other winners. We all know it is not in your vocabulary to humbly accept the award and keep it moving. But how about you thank Mama FIRST and THEN find time for redundant assertions about entitlement and what not? That way, the cheesy orchestra music only cuts into your self-aggrandizement and not your “tribute” to your mother.

Watch the clip below for evidence of Mr. West's boundless arrogance and complete absence of tact. Then watch Vince Gill’s hilarious and well-timed clowning in response:

(This vid was put together by some joker on youtube but it's funny and shows all the original footage.)

(I have a feeling we'll be hearing something about Vince Gill or country music on the next Kanye album.)

I asked Miss Ash if she was secretly crushing on my boy Kanye, that is not the case.
Stay tuned the Beef Continues.

Sneaks of the Week

If any of you watched the Super Bowl, I KNOW my NY peeps did.
You probably saw the trailer for Wanted the new film by Russian Director Timur Bekmambatov. Wanted is based on the Graphic Novel penned by Mark Millar and features Angelina Jolie, James McAvoy , Morgan Freeman and Common. It's looking pretty dope( but are folks ready for another Matrix?) Shot with the new RED Camera; Techies are calling it the harbinger of digital filmmaking in the independent film industry.

The Star Trek Teaser on the header of Cloverfield was the highlight of the film, yes Ron I stand by that statement ;).


Obama in 2008

On the eve of Super Tuesday the Litmus Test for the citizens of the United States begins. Are we ready for a black or female president? A few months ago I considered voting for Hillary Clinton, after all the Clinton Adminstration was responsible for putting the U.S back on track. As First Lady, Hillary's contribution was not to be taken lightly.
Throughout the campaigns the Clinton's tactics became downright shameless.

Bill Clinton: As president he was a representative for the interest of the people not based on race and class but on some "let's makes things right shit". After his presidency he returned to the private sector with an office space in Harlem and continued to champion the cause
Human Interest.
(Clinton named head of U.N. tsunami rebuilding)

Now fast forward to 2008, my man has chosen to take it there. That's right.
His condescending remarks directed towards Obama and his acts of arrogance ("We got this Hilary, the African American vote is in the bag..."). It's insulting to the American public. This isn't a campaign based on race. The candidates have a responsibility to stick to the issues, If they're truly for the betterment of the American people it's time to step up because we're hurting.
BILL MOYERS JOURNAL | Clinton, Obama, King and Johnson | PBS

Questioning Obama's experience and his message of hope is a slap in the face of the Human Rights movement as a whole. It's what people of color,women and whites fought for so that one day ANYONE who is capable of improving our society could do so with the combined support of the people. So Hillary I'm letting you (and Bill) know MY vote is not in the bag.
