Go Hard or Go Home?

This is a tough one.  I guess you would have to be there to really see how this went down, but in a true sportsman’s eyes, this should never happen. 

Houston’s Jack Yates beat up on Lee High School last night by a score of 170-35.  It was 100-12 at half time.  I don’t know about you, but when I was growing up, that’s like the 7-0 skunk rule, just call it quits.  Anyhow, you can read more about the article here

Here is Greg Wise on ESPN this morning trying to defend his decision to continue the game.  Good luck with that one.

Check out Yates scores from earlier in the year, they beat one team by 99 points.  I wonder how come we didn’t hear anything then?

Speed Racer

One thing remained the same every year growing up, and that is this: my younger brother ALWAYS wanted a RC (remote controlled) car for Christmas.  And he usually got one, but more than likely it was never the car that he was dreaming up in his imagination.  It would usually either be too slow, or it only worked in the kitchen, or on the tile or vinyl floor, and not on the carpet, or it would have that wire attached between the car and the remote…that would really piss him off.

As we got older he started to pick out his own, and they still would only last a good month or so because it would be torn to shreds from flipping over so many times, or the battery would die and cost too much to buy another one.  One of the main problems was us thinking we were mechanics and taking the thing apart only to find out we couldn’t put it back together again.

Well, now we are all grown up, but things haven’t changed much.  On Christmas Day we hit the streets after dinner to watch my bro go to work with his toy.  Finally in the Big League, this car ain’t no joke…it can do about 70 mph.

I will post some video of his car in action soon…this thing is crazy quick.

Brand New

I’m a little late, as usual, but 2010 is upon us and if you haven’t started yet, now is the time to get a jump on the year’s goals.  If you are anything like anyone else I know, that day was today, Monday.  Because there is no way anyone was going to start a brand new diet, exercise regime, or resolution of some sort on a Friday.  So there, I said it.

On to the next one.  I have a lot in store for this year, and I hope the year is bigger and better than 2009, its supposed to be anyway.  A friend of mine told me I needed to take the rest of the year off and wait until this week to really start the blueprint of my takeover, but I went ahead and got a jump start cause I know how lazy I am already.

I hope everyone is enjoying my post and pics thus far, I will continue to bring you my events and experiences first hand for your reading and viewing pleasure.  I am a bit behind, so I have about 3 party pics to post including pics from a crazy House of Blues party and New Years.  I also got some other random stuff, and some cool pics from the Texans victory game yesterday.

I was so ecstatic about that victory, the energy and emotion in that game was crazy…I am so happy to have been a part of that history making moment.  With that, I leave you with only one pic for now, with promise of more to come the rest of the week.

Texans

¡Felíz año nuevo!

For the Kids

Anyone that knows me knows how much I love children and making them happy.  The Texas Children’s Hospital Toy Drive does just exactly that for me, gives me a chance to help these kids have a wonderful Christmas.

Sponsored by Advantage BMW, lots of caring people came out to have a good time, but also to donate toys and show their support.  I would like to extend a special Thank You to all of my friends and family that attended the event.  And a special thanks to Dawn Sloan for allowing me to be part of such a great cause.  I can’t wait till next year, I am sure it will be BIGGER and BETTER!

Here are some pics from the night.  Happy Holidays.

Special invited guest Farouk Shami attended the toy drive and even gave a short speech with some Q&A at the end.  If you haven’t heard of Farouk, he came to American with $71 in his pocket, started the CHI hair products brand, became a billionaire, and is now running for governor.  I had to make that networking transaction.

Pursuit of Happiness

Kid Cudi is taking hip hop in an amazing new direction.  I always complain about music not being as good as it was 5 or 10 years ago, but along comes a Kid Named Cudi and changes my mind about how I feel about music today.  I have only bought about 4 or 5 albums this year, and this is one of them.  Check out his new video for Pursuit of Happiness.

Drake appearance and everything…I’m not sure how I feel about that, I have mixed feelings about Ever, Greatest.  Not about his talent level, but about his choice of record label, but I will save that for another day.  Here is the video…dope.

Red Bull 45s

Tonight Red Bull will be hosting a dj spinoff at Warehouse Live…come check it out, its gonna be a good look!  Here is a quick description of what is going down and info on the night.  Be there!  Peace.

Red Bull 45s – an event that takes a piece of record history and remixes in into an innovative evolution of the traditional DJ competition. The event pays tribute to yesteryear by tasking DJs with competing against each other using only the 7-inch 45 rpm records popular in the 1950s and 1960s. The competition format places four DJs in four opposite corners of the venue, with the crowd in the middle. Each DJ spins for no more than four minutes on 45 rpm records, with each subsequent DJ attempting to match the last beat of the previous DJ – without the help of any beat-matching programs. The goal of the event is to revive the once revered 45 rpm record while tasking DJs to use all their imagination and expertise to create a seamless and continuous flow of music. At the end of the event, one DJ will be declared the winner based on both his musical creativity and technical skill.

For all the hiphop heads, here is a video of Dj Cut Chemist @ last years event.
