we made it (c) ghostface

YOU MADE THIS HAPPEN PEOPLE! OMG I LOVE YALL SO MUCH! THANK YOU!
its a celebration bitches!! (c) kanyeezy


the suspense is over and while we have not been contacted by the good people over at myspace (i would leave my aim on but i already know that thing is gonna be a melee today) the voting is over and the polls show that tanya morgan is gonna be hittin the slot machines. this is freaking awesome. so now i just gotta wait to see what the next step is.

so its lookin like TANYA MORGAN vs MITCH GUNZ vs METAFORE will go head to head in vegas. shout out to fortified and NRP. im kinda sad NRP came in last place man, for real. i know im not supposed to be rooting for the competion (and GOOD competion at that!) but they really had the best song to me. im sure they will be fine tho, they got a good sound.

in the meantime tho i will say i saw something kinda dope on train today. an older guy (who rushed the door and kinda cut me off from getting into the open part of the train and left me wedged against the door :/) was on the train playin his walkman. a group of 4-5 kids were bein kids 'nigga fuck bitch shit ass nigga ole nigga ass nigga you nigga'.(my cbox would be so ashamed of them) you know doin that. and they were LOUD as hell. so the guy who wouldnt let me pass turns to one and says 'say brother, do you know how loud you are? you are offending me and everybody around me. nobody wants to hear you disrespect yourself and all these other people on the train with your use of THAT word. the least you can do is not yell it and be disrespectful to yourself in private' i mean dude went on like that for a good 2 minutes. shut them lil dudes DOWN. i like seein older people pull on the young community to do better. like he wasnt their dad but he felt a responsibility towards them, thats whats up. made me smile (well actually i was laughing at them hahaha) but yeah. my relationship to the word is tricky. i mean i have tried to cut back from using it in my songs so much, along with curse words but in real life? man listen... im on that paul mooney, i say it to keep my teeth white lol. i have a theory on my conversational use of it but i wont go into that here... unless prompted

also on the train there is this guy i see alot who wears a janet jackson rhythm nation styled metal billed hat. only the metal is actually shinny cardboard and he has a shaved head with a pony tail. and he is a geeky lookin asian guy. i wonder what he does that permits him to walk around lookin like an idiot all day. i mean he wears this shit EVERY day with like a plaid shirt, some cargo shorts and some kinda run down sneakers laced up REAL tight. i mean for real, yall cnat imagine how weird this cat looks. i bet his life is awesome. he probably rides chariots throught the streets of the bronx proclaiming himself the king of the rhythm nation. or maybe he walks atop the std ridden waters of the gowanus like jesus did. who knows, all i know is i want to tell him to take off that funny ass hat but the pony tail is probably a worse look.

L

thats all for now folks... ill keep you posted on tanya does vegas. big tings a gwan!

P.S. - and while we discussin the 90's jodeci's first album has this song called my phone (if you were like me you didnt play the fast side at ALL tho) and the chorus goes:

my phone doesnt ring anymore/no hands knockin at my door

does that line strike anybody else as odd? no hands? why not no friends? or no one? or no love? just a decapitated hand? maybe that hand from the addams family was hittin the crew off with handjobs in their pregroupie days...


P.P.S - BOYZ TO MEN'S FIRST LP HAD SOME BANGIN FAST SONGS ON IT! SIMPIN! TOO HYPE?!?! SON I NEED THAT SHIT TODAY OMG! I NEED IT NOW! NOHOMO. im sure tia would agree with me on this one, right lizzle?

Donald Williams said...

i dont knwo how the competition will be set up but in just ready to rock

tia said...

donald's contagious/yeah it's alright...

i forgot to say congratulations so congratulations! woohoo.

hw who wishes to sing like Jodeci said...

YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I didn't know the side B of that album was a universal thing. I knew exactly what song you meant though, I actually liked that song.

aeon? said...

can i be happy?

i wanna buy us a drink!

(no t-paino)

Sandy said...

OMG THIIIS is the BEST blog EVAR.

I refuse to congratulate you. I'mma go find NRP and tell them to demand a recount.

The whole Rhythm Nation/walk on diseased water story... awesome.

And the elders teaching the babies... love when I see that too. You ever try pulling your "village to raise a child" card? I 've done it a couple of times, and I'm amazed how effective I can be.

and yes, the fast side sucked.

aeon? said...

hey me & sanderson commented at teh same time

SYNERGY!

Donald Williams said...

oh if you can make it thru the second side of jodeci's forever my lady you are a champ.

i think its like 2 songs on there worth the effort

diary of a mad band however is something TOTALLY different...

Filthy said...

yittidee!!

the lovely fuckin' part of it all is that i may already be on the westcoast during that time so a trip to vegas may be in order (and i'm prolly bringin' folk wit me!).

aeon? said...

the fast side of cooleyhighharmony had "Little Things Mean A Lot"

which is a certified stamped grade A jamathon.

Sandy said...

SYNERGY!!!

Donald Williams said...

LITTLE THINGS MEAN ALOT

nigga i need this album right now


you from philly tho you biased

david said...

whomever i see in vegas and they recognize me....i will buy them a drink.....lol

maybe TM can get sponsored by OLDE ENGLISH 800....

aeon? said...

you know what?

outside of "motown philly back again dindininina doin a lil east coast swaaaaang"

i wasn't really cognizant of the gravity of them being from philly til II was on the way. i just knew that "Please Don't Go" was the song of the century and if it comes on anytime i'm around, i will find a hairbrush/comb/oblong utensil (|| <-pause sign)

and SERENADE THE CLOSEST FEMALE MOTHERFUCKER.

-fin-

Sandy said...

your tour needs to be sponsored by KISS FM or WBLS with all this R&B talk.

Donald Williams said...

Donald Williams said...

so nobody cares about the rhythm nation guy? i tried to take a photo of him on my sidekick...

david said...

the rhythm nation guy probably has special powers...and if he knows of people talkin about him...he will show up in their neighborhood
so i ain't sayin shit!
**until you get a picture of him**

Donald Williams said...

exex said...

I missed so much! Congratulations, mayne. YOu guys so deserve all of this. Don't forget to document the whole Vegas experience with video. It's gonna be awesome.

And speaking of Boyz II Men, a few weeks back I got an email saying they were filming a video in NYC and needed female extras. No lie.

Luca said...

yo don... i dunno if uve taken 6 train thru bronx... but i was wonder... u ever seen this old looking white dude with long black hair... if u c him... he covers his face with a folder (yes a folder where u keep papers) wen he faces guys... or butt ugly girls. he says he's the last decendant on jesus... he comes around my neighborhood in Pelham Bay sometimes... i just laugh at him wen i c him

amanda said...

^maybe I don't wanna live in NYC as badly as I thought.

and if you keep calling me Mandy Pants, you're going to force me to come up with some ridiculously corny, overly affectionate, pinch-your-cheeks grandma type name for you.
