Official Hustler

*Updated 9/1/05*

I'm telling you, it's hard just to blog once a week!

But I got good news to share. I can now blend in with the rest of the ATLiens because I have received my first check due to my hustle! Whoo Hooo! I'm happy, and proud of myself, because I see many more dollars coming my way... if they are successful w/ their business. Personally, I don't see how they are going to profitable, but I'm going to do my best to help make it happen. It's only $100, but that's just my hook to reel them in for bigger future tasks. :-)


Old Skool



I attended the Ebony Family Reunion festival this past weekend. Aside from the scorching sun, it was a very nice event. I was under a tent, so I didn't have to worry about getting more burnt up than I already am from Miami. So who did I see? First up, I saw Lisa Lisa! She can definitely still sing. Has a 6 month old baby. Then came Big Daddy Kane. He looked real sharp. Even broke out some fresh new lyrics. Remember how he used to spit lyrics real fast? He still can, but was exhausted after each stretch. So after a couple of songs, he let his DJ play some old skool R&B for a good while, must be so he could recuperate. Then Whodini came out! Well, half of Whodini. Two of the rappers & the DJ were the original. Then they had 2 young'ns took rapped the missing parts and did the dancing. In fact, none of the artists danced. They barely moved, and every last one of them complained that they were too old to continue doing what they are doing. I didn't stay to watch Atlantic Star.



Another Gas Blog


Since Georgia's gas comes from Louisiana, there's speculation that gas will soon jump to over $4.00/gallon! That will be enough to stop be from going out eat at lunch. Cafeteria food isn't that bad.


Update
As soon as I wrote this, seems like everyone in Atlanta went crazy. hour long lines at the gas pump. Price gouging. Georgia's govenor just issued a "State of Emergency" forcing stations to freeze their gas prices. As you cans see.... it's too late!!




Racist Media


And borrowing the post by my fiancee', I also noticed the racist news reporting. I'm proud to point out the proof:
Black people loot, while White people "find"!!!

That looting vs finding thing shines a whole other light on my current opinions about the situation. Now, I did see a bunch of brothas finding some Nikes and looting them and bragging about it on National TV. I wouldn't have minded it so much if they had just found some bread to loot.

Media is the devil plain and simple. And yes gas that high will definitely have people taking potted meat sandwiches to work.

That is soooo crazy! I cannot believe gas station owners want to take advantage of folks like that. I know this is a supply and demand economy but that's just crazy.

Why are you trying to only blog once a week anyway???? I just blog when I have something to say... Sometimes that's a lot, but sometimes I just don't have anything to say...

Gas prices are rediculous... and I can't believe that the owners are trying to take advantage of people! That's deplorable!

I guess we'll be at $9 gas by year end.

How did you get this spam blocker at the bottom of your comment box?

If gas prices continue going up I think I might have to trade my car in for a bicycle.

I'm with b.e.g. Seriously, I may just have to take the Nike's to work everyday, because these gas prices are no joke.
