I believe it is time for an upgrade. I’m not sure to what though.

Let me clarify.

This HP Pavilion ain’t cuttin it. At all.  I’ve had it about three years and it’s acting schitzo now so… I’m trying to decide if I want a Sony VAIO or a Mac. I hear a lot that Macs freeze up etc, but I love all the applications you can get with it. Buuuut the VAIO is nice too, I have a couple of friends who have one… Plus I think the VAIO is more affordable. Life of a college kid: Broke

Oh well. Any suggestions? 

The VAIO I want.

I have a question.

This is more aimed at the black women who might read this post, but everybody else feel free to sound off.

Which is more appealing? Natural hair or relaxed hair?

Now from a person who has had both the relaxer (which burned my hair out) and the natural look (the look I sport now) I’ve gotten mixed responses. Right now my hair is straight (pressed, no chemicals) and a lot of my friends want my curly mane back. I personally like it pressed, easier upkeep (until I hit the gym). Plus a relaxer isn’t neccesarily the best thing for your hair.

I won’t go into too much of a tangent, I just wanted to know…

Ranting on the Track

Every now and again I get annoyed with what people consider good music. [I’m sure everybody heard about Kanye backing Soulja Boy talking about how SB’s music was real hip hop. I consider it real bullshit to be honest, but that’s just me.]

So, I was wondering (show of hands) does anybody remember what good music is? To me, good music is: a dope beat, something with sustenance, something to make you think, or even if the song didn’t make you think the lyrics to the song were crazy and had some meaning to it. 

Prime example, Pete Rock and CL Smooth’s T.R.O.Y. Basically CL is telling a story about his childhood and his family over a beat that’s guaranteed to shake your car with its heavy base. Give it a listen and tell me if this isn’t better than half the bullshit on the radio. There are plenty more I could name off but for the sake of length for this post I won’t go off on another tangent.

Now as far as feel good music, or music you can dance to in the club, that’s all fine and dandy, ok I understand. I won’t lie, when “Donk” comes on at Club Miami (in Atlanta for those who don’t know) on Saturday night I shake my ass. But you won’t catch it on my iPod. (Hell you won’t catch ANY Soulja Boy on my iPod.) I keep bringing up Soulja Boy because he’s the front runner of bullshit music. You can’t knock his hustle, I applaud him on his hard work but as far as his music goes it’s all garbage, especially Turn My Swag On. Ugh… (See post below about how I feel about that damn word ‘swag’.) 

To be honest it’s not just hip hop that’s on that bullshit either, R&B is starting to sound monotonous as well. It’s all about sex, one night stands, being at the club or a relationship gone awry or that damn autotune bullshit completely messes up the song. [Tpain and Ron Brownz would consist of another post.]

I’m just asking, could we get a real love song please? I mean I hate to sound like I’m bitching about the entire music game but, c’mon, every old school love song was truly about love. Yeah, every now and again you get a Mario, Usher or Ne-Yo song that is good but you have to admit, a lot on the radio sounds the same. Not everything, just a lot. (Thank God for Raheem DeVaughn and Chrisette Michelle.)

Excuse my ranting by the way, my friend Brian (a friend who I believe knows what good music is, and someone’s opinion I respect) asked me to post about this. And, it’s not completely out of whack considering I just posted about this not too long ago, but in a much more compact composition.

And I’m sure Brian wants me to bring up Lil’ Wayne. He can’t stand him, and personally I think Lil’ Wayne sometimes has a clever way of putting lyrics together but it’s all about the same stuff: Money, hoes and more money. Same shit, different day, different beat, different metaphors and similes to talk about the same shit. Yeah, I’ve got some of Wayne on the Pod, I won’t lie but… He’s mediocre at best. He claims he’s the Best Rapper Alive buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut I doubt it. Highly. 

I won’t list off all the musicians who get little credit because they’re not rapping about all the crap you hear on the radio now. We all know who they are in the back of our minds.

I’m not claiming to know everything about music. I don’t. I can’t recite every old school song word for word, I just know good music when I hear it, and what people consider good music sometimes irks me. We’re all entitled to our opinion but… I guess it just amazes me the attention span of people who (for example) believe Gucci Mane is the shit. He’s got some songs for the club but nothing more than that.

I swear the theme song for this post is Dumb It Down by Lupe Fiasco. But then again, for similar posts like this I think that song is always the theme music.

Ok, I’m done ranting. What do you think?

Peace.
