I went on a Friday night, personally I was not in to the obnoxiously loud house/techno music blaring out the speakers and causing me to yell everything I said. Probably better during the day time.
The staff was very courteous and outgoing. The food was delicious. They have hearty portions (burrito $7.50), fresh pico de gallo, and scrumptious chips with salsa. They also have some of the better calamari($5.75) I’ve ever had in Atlanta. I heard the drinks are good, but I didn’t try.
The decor is terrible. It is a mix between a horticulture lab, a techno club, and a masquerade ball. The ceiling air conditioning unit was dripping water from the condensation.
Overall, It is a great place for food, the people are nice and it is not too pricey. It will be better once they find their brand identity and the staff gets a little more aware. Bad for a date when you want to get to know someone but. You will have a lot to talk about when you leave.
Lupe is probably the only rapper not featured on Rick Rozay’s page-long track list. It’s funny how people talk about Rick Ross as being fake but in the same breath call Lupe lame. Let’s be real now…. Lupe knows a lot more about Larry Hoover than William Leonard Roberts II. #justsayin
“Women Know your worth! And by the way, you will not have to look for him….He will find you. He will recognize himself in you. He may not be able to explain the connection, but he will always be drawn to you.”—http://tiaminnis.tumblr.com/ (via anticomplicated)
J.Cole comes with the heat on this. “They say I’m: The down south Nas, East coast Pac, The Carolina Andre, the Fayettenam Kanye, if you missed it Im the light skinned Jesus” I guess “they” said it all for me…
I’m tired of watching “The Game” every weekend! These music videos on 106 and Park look the same! I really don’t think everybody should hate “Chris” anymore, he’s a pretty good guy!
Why doesn’t BET ever put on good original shows? They tend to grab syndicated shows, replay award shows, and copy MTV programs and “blackify” them. This strategy drove the co-founder Sheila Johnson to forbid her children from watching this deplorable, egregious, mundane and degrading network. The Japanese would perform Harakari if they saw this trash the produced and dishonored their families with!
This is not to say everything is terrible; even though I’m not a personal fan of The Monique Show, I respect what she is doing, how hard she has worked and how she stays humble and employs a lot of minority talent. The BET website is not all that bad either, Music Matters and Lens on Talent are great sites and user interaction forums but GAT DAMN MUST BE 2 SIDES!! So as we finish this episode of everybody hates BET, let us pray! Pray that they get their act together.
Right as the clock struck 12:01 a.m. ET on Thursday morning, officially starting this summer’s free-agency bonanza, LeBron James(notes) received three things — several phone calls from interested teams, a knock on his door and a mysterious package. Since the package was mysterious, no one knew what it contained. But now that we’re a few days past the start of the offseason signing period, someone has to take credit for the move.
As it turns out, the package James received was from Chicago. And as it turns out, it was the final piece in a week-long marketing initiative by the Chicago-based Leo Burnett Worldwide ad agency. From the Chicago Tribune’s Steve Johnson:
“LeBron, the fans of Chicago have a question for you,” reads the two-page ad that ran in Thursday’s Akron Beacon Journal, James’ hometown paper. “Can you cast a shadow this big?”
The image is of an outline that looks a lot like Michael Jordan’s, in the iconic, ball-in-one-hand pose, spread out over the Chicago cityscape. Dreamed up by sports-loving ad guys at the city’s Leo Burnett agency and paid for by Burnett, it was the culmination of a four-day campaign featuring a fresh challenge each day. […]
So Monday, they sent to his house the classic red, white and black Air Jordans and asked if he could fill those shoes. Tuesday it was a case featuring seven empty ring boxes, representing one more championship than Jordan won here, and the question, “Can you fill these boxes?”
Wednesday was a mock-up of a Chicago Tribune 10 years hence – still going strong, by the way – and the headline “Sweet Throne, Chicago: With Title No. 7, It’s Officially King James’ Court.”
Bold. I mean, wowsers, you guys. Flaunting Chicago and Michael Jordan’s legacy in James’ hometown is about as direct as you can be when addressing what many see as James’ biggest hurdle when considering signing with the Bulls. No use beating around the bush, I guess. Readily acknowledging that LeBron would have a lot of work to do to catch Jordan is playing to James’ competitive side, and doing that would be just the kind of thing that would set Jordan off. I think that’s irony, but I’m not a big Alanis Morissette fan.
It feels like this move might tell us a little bit about what LeBron is really after and whether or not he’s willing to intentionally position himself against the greatest player of all-time. At the very least, it’s a pretty cool campaign — Don Draper would be proud — and LeBron got a pair of awesome shoes. I think that makes him the big winner in all of this.
"We some head bussas, we some head bussas, we’ll knock a hater out, we some head bussas" We say this before kickoffs every time down but we never really think what it means.
"Don’t lead with your head, bow your neck, look up, run your feet!"
We get these passe words of wisdom when we first start the game. A couple times during summer camp but how hard do we really stick to them. How much do they really matter when your making plays. As long as the fans keep screaming and the money keeps pouring into the program, just do what you do! It’s a price to pay for love of the game…
College Joqs have very little time off. Whenever there is a 3+ day break it is a crazy adventure! Being that it’s July 4th weekend there is a huge opportunity to go HAM! When everybody comes back to the Locker Room after their weekend they get to talking. Some tell the tallest tales that would give Mark Twain a run for his money. Some the hall of famers in the history books are Pimp C, J Hill, and of course Woody Woo. These guys have mastered the art of storytelling. They craft words in a mystical way to make you feel as if you were there front row while they were doing all this cool stuff!
Everybody knows they are lying but it is still fascinating when they go back and forth one upping each others stories. Phrases like, “Then I said, ‘Ms. Lady___’”, “When I tell you ______, I mean it really ____”, “You know ya boy had to ___” and “She was choosin’ on ya boy”, are sprinkled through conversation. This is truly an art. You have to successfully:
a. think of a lie on your feet
b. make it more exotic than the last
c. do it with a straight face
d. listen to someone else’s b.s.
Hats off to anyone who has the propensity to complete all of these steps, we know its hard and we applaud you! I can’t wait to hear the stories on Tuesday but until then.
One little spritz and the memories of your slightly salty fingers after creating a masterwork of worms in rainbow-mashed Play-Doh neons rush back….and that is a good thing! And, I do fully understand how vile this “fragrance” is in actuality. The idea behind it, however, is vital. (Must get Play Doh. Soon my arsenal of toys will outwegh anything serious in my house. And I will be extraordinarily awesome!)
dun dunn dunnnn! lol
OK, Its not R. Kelly’s but it is a real fragrance. Its on the rack next to summer rain. Try it out if you feel nostalgic!
I guess this is part of my #DontBeThatGuy series… Like Rickey Smiley said this morning, “what crotch is worth $750 million?” Some may be questioning why he cheated. Some may question why he cheated with THOSE trash women. And there are others that wonder why he raw’d them!! NerdyJoq wants to know what his prenuptial agreement was. We all talk about the word and the discussion on whether or not to do it depending on your circumstance is there but many of us don’t really know what a prenup actually entails.
A prenup allocates who gets what should you happen to divorce. In a world where 50% of all marriages end in divorce, this comes into play a lot more than you would think. It guarantees that each person in the relationship gets a “fair” share of the financial estate during a divorce. It does not necessarily mean half of everything and it doesn’t mean one person leaves with nothing if they were taking care of the kids. They vary in dollar amount, duration, percentage and property.
The Prenuptial agreement was made famous by moguls like Donald Trump, Sean Combs and Michael Jordan but it’s not only for millionaires. According to www.prenuptialagreements.org you should consider having a prenup if you fall into any of the following categories:
1. You are much wealthier than your partner.
2. You earn much more than your partner.
3. You are remarrying.
4. Your partner has a high debt load.
5. You own part of a business.
6. To prevent your spouse from overturning your estate plan.
7. You are much poorer than your partner.
8. If you plan to quit your job to raise children.
It doesn’t matter if your worth 20 billion or 20 thousand, communication on every level is important in a relationship. So while you are late night caking, slip these 6 letters into your conversation and find out where your partner’s head is?
