So I'm still trying to figure out how to get this stupid blog shit to work the way it's supposed to...maybe this will stick.

I hate the internet. How odd is that? A meduim with the potential to connect every person on the planet, a global marketplace capable of offering me almost any product or service imaginable...this is evil. Well, not really. Maybe I'm just a little jaded. Have you read "McWorld vs. Jihad"? Don't let the title fool you, it's about economics/politics. Good read. Kinda dry though.
I miss the fact that once upon a time, you had to talk to people. Typing words at folks around the globe is cool, but I know the kind of impact I have on people in RL and it's hard to bring that across in cyberspace. Body language, facial expressions, and vocal tone are the majority of communication, and this medium takes all that away. The average person barely skims what they read (I'm guilty of doing this too!) and we only half listen to what others tell us (cuz we're so busy waiting to say what ever it is that buzzes around in our craniums that we just don't really LISTEN), so how am I to communicate effectively with my fellow humans?
lol.
If you tell me the sky is blue and I disagree, am I crazy? U might think so, but I'd have one question for you: what is the sky made of?
RZA said on the Wu Forever cd that most won't understand because they were not meant to. What's your percentage?

"Be careful what you wish for..."

I know all of you have heard this one before (and been knocked out by it). I just got bit in the ass with this one.

To keep myself from doin shit I don't have any business doin I got a job at a company called AfterHours. Not a strip joint. It's a tux rental. Believe it or not I just fell into the shit.
I was workin at macy's? carson's? some dept store joint and one of my ex's friends told her about an interview (the...

Black Thought is so underrated. Since 93(?) he's been blazin as the lead vocals for the collective of The Roots. To be honest, I just got up on them when they put out What They Do (the video was a great parody) and the first album I bought was Game Theory (I had the album with Don't Say Nuthin, but it disappeared...) and I just got Rising Down. This shit is FEEEENOMINAAAAAAAL. One question: why all of a sudden are there so many guest spots?
Either way I love it. Much more listenable than...

American Shaolin

Posted 06-15-2008 at 01:34 PM by BornPower
I just reread this book I bought a few months ago (I read so many books, I reread them later and it's almost like the first time. how many? I can read a 400 page book in a few hours...do the math) called American Shaolin. This white boy gets into an Ivy League school and drops out to travel to Xiaolin to study kungfu.
I learned that kungfu was actually developed as a sort of exercise for the monks so that their muscles wouldn't turn to mush (like our cubicle dwellers do) but now the emphasis...

A chinese man once tried to explain the concepts of the yin and the yang to me. Imagine trying to explain the difference between Ghost and Raekwon to a Nigerian that doesn't listen to hip hop. It was almost that frustrating to him.
I felt dummmm, so I did some research.
The yin and the yang are actually one simple concept that we (as westerners) are constantly trying to dissassemble when the concept of the yin and yang (the SINGULAR concept) reflects the completeness, the symmetry,...

I just found out that some person on this forum already has the name Halfcutskeleton. How weird is that? I'm a thin brother and my last name is Cutter, so one of my boys actually gave me my name (my little cousin thinks it's funny to call me Skeletor. Ha.).

The other shit? Well, let me preface with this. I mean no disrespect to the true soldiers of our culture. If my comments don't apply to you, then don't get offended by them.

I am not The One. I don't even want to...
