After a long deliberation Jason and I decided that we will be a Cardinals AND White Sox family after last night. GO CARDS! GO SOX!
So, Justin Halpern was just like any of you other twitter addicts out there... Tweeting random nonsense about his life and so on...Well...except for the fact that joining twitter got him a book deal AND a tv show...
Not familiar with Mr. Halpern... We'll let wikipedia catch you up...
"Shit My Dad Says" is a Twitter feed started by Justin Halpern, a semi-employed comedy writer. It consists of quotes made by Halpern's father, Sam, regarding random subjects. Halpern started the account on August 3, 2009, soon after moving from Los Angeles back to his parents' house in San Diego. In less than a month, the page was featured on The Daily Show, a popular San Francisco blog called Laughing Squid and by Forgetting Sarah Marshall star Kristen Bell. As of 13 June 2010, the feed has over 1,406,000 followers.
In September 2009, Halpern found an agent and started sifting through book deals. He signed an agreement with Harper Collins in October 2009. The book based on the feed, Sh*t My Dad Says, was released on May 4, 2010. During its first week, the book reached #8 on the New York Times Best Seller list for hardcover nonfiction.
In November 2009, CBS announced that they were developing a television sitcom based on the twitter feed, which would star William Shatner. The series, officially titled $#*! My Dad Says, was green-lit by CBS in May 2010 and will air on CBS during the 2010-11 season.

I'll be there..So if ya see me out, you better speak :)
Lupe Fiasco is starting up the All City Chess Club... A collective of artists that probably weren't labeled the "popular kids" in High School... It involves himself, Asher Roth, B.o.B, The Cool Kids, Charles Hamilton, Blu, Wale, Diggy, J. Cole, and Pharrell.... I'm down... I'm a fan on some kind of level of all the artists with the exception of Charles Hamilton... I'm hoping that this "movement" actually goes somewhere, because Lord knows I'm still waiting on something new to be released from CRS... it's been like three years! :(
COWBOY BEBOP! This show was so awesome and the soundtrack is so prolific.. Hmmm... I suppose I can name one out of the several things that made this show amazing... I thought it was cool that most of the episode titles are named after some sweet songs... I suggest you check it out on DVD ASAP... But you can't borrow mine! :-p
FRISKY DINGO! This show was all about superhero/action movie cliche's... I'm so sad it was so short-lived. It made me cry gansta tears of laughter on the regular... Adult Swim puhleaseeeee bring back Killface and his ridiculousness
Just thought I'd educate you on these shows spectacularness... I will try and do this on the regular maybe make a segment about wonderific things that came to an end... STAY TUNED! :-p
If you missed Betty White on SNL check it out below... This was the best show that SNL has had in IONS!
*sidenote* Am I the only one obsessed with SNL photo's? I really need to know the photographers name because I think he/she can make me look beautiwonderlous lol.
SEASON 3 of The Boondocks debuted last night and twitter was POPPIN! I had to watch it twice because I was so busy tweeting that I missed the satirical subtleties that makes The Boondocks so prolific... I was more than pleased with the season debut and I can't wait for more... I'm like a FIEND! What makes The Boondocks so ingenious is that even the people that the show pokes fun of are fans of it... I hope that it forces some of those people to look at themselves critically... That would be pretty sweet! Lol.
So, I've wanted these shoes ever since I was in the 6th grade... My Mom was not having it! These and the North Carolina Blue and White 11's are the only two pair of shoes that I really regret not having in my childhood (I'm a spoiled brat, so SUE ME! :-p). So, I was truly excited about the retro... HOWEVER, I just really want the original! :(. Check out the difference below
I don't like that the Retro's have replaced the Air Diamond Turf logo with a 2010...BUT, I saw THESE on ebay... So I might have to get the '05 retro for $65 bucks... You can't beat that I guess... Meanwhile, I'll just pray that Nike releases the originals :(
...For those that do want the retro Nike Air Diamond Turf's... they should be dropping sometime in June :)
The 73 year old Ms. Brown was charged with first-degree racketeering and second-degree theft by extortion on April 21st in Superior Court. Yeah, you read right... Ms. Brown was "pimping"... LITERALLY. But get this, she was ratted out by her own son... smh. This truly is a sad story... The son allegedly found seemingly desperate girls from the internet by promising them that having sex for money would be very lucrative for them, and then forced them into prostitution...The prostitution ring also included a niece and a nephew of Tecora Brown... tisk, tisk. :(
I liked these yellow brogue's as well... But I hear the paint chips pretty bad on them so that's a bummer :(
If you want either then make your way to City Soles/Niche... *Warning* the footwear there is NOT cheap, but they do have a layaway plan for you ballers on a budget... lol
My saddles :)
