These are my new shoes. They're good shoes. They won't make you rich like me, they won't make you rebound like me, they definitely won't make you handsome like me. They'll only make you have shoes like me. That's it.

Nas' new album...Untitled...(The Powers That Be stifled Nas' 1st amendment rights by not letting him name it N***** ). For whatever shock value that has it's legit. Maybe it is meant to shock, but Nas uses the n word as a jumping off point to explore the deeper more unsettling covert and overt racism that clouds this country, the corrupt media, and returns to his roots...the QB. When I first heard Nas' first album Illmatic, I was transported to QB, to the rough, hustled streets of Nas' hometown. I had never heard and still rarely hear albums that completely speak to me. This was one. It was obvious what this supreme (possibly best ever) lyricist was hustlin and strugglin to stay alive, to earn, and to make it. It was real, everyword was believeable, and I wanted so much for this honest man to make it. This album while completely different speaks honest to me as much as the first one...this time not about QB but our entire nation.


Maybe I should rename this blog to Sammy's Music n' Movie Fixins Bar
I saw all of the following movies in the theater...let's go in chronological order.

Rating Scale:
Capers = 1 Magen David aka Star
add Onions = 2
Magen David aka Stars
add Lox = 3
Magen David aka Stars
add Cream Cheese = 4
Magen David aka Stars
add Pumpernickel Bagel = 5
Magen David aka Stars

(I have just created the most Jewish Movie rating system ever!!! Wait how do I do half stars?)


Rating: Pumpernickel Bagel with CC, Lox, Onion and Capers

This flick was great, it had action in ways that have never been done before, humor, and a great story and plot. Did I mention Angelina's ass? Yeah there was that too.

Step Brothers

Rating: Capers, Onions, Lox, and CC

Stupid meet stupid. I laughed the entire time. IN the vein of Dumb and Dumber, but with that special John C. Ferrell-Mckay twist.

The Dark Knight

Rating: A Dozen Pumpernickel Bagels with all the fixins'.

This was the best of all worlds, it is so many genres mixed in to one movie. Not only was the summer blockbuster, but it was the summer blockbuster minus that annoying cotton-candy-like pop bullshit. Replace that predictable summer schlock and replace it with real suspense, drama, self exploration, and true terror, and you get The Dark Knight. There were no explosions for explosions sake, they all had meaning and impact. This is a must see.

The Mackey Water Method

The MWM was derived from a strange ritual one of a former roommate/friend. Mackey was a bit odd, but one of the nicest guys in the world. This 6'8" lanky hippie from the Eastern Shore of VA could not play basketball a lick, but could ride his mountain bike for days. He had a very set routine, which I found myself doing tonight:

Materials: Tap Water, 1 Camel Pak, 1 plastic water container, 1 Brita water pitcher

1. Fill Brita pitcher and plastic jug and put in refrigerator
2. When water is oild ... fill Camel Pak with Brita Water
3. Fill Brita from Plastic jug ensuring the water is already cold as it is filtered
4. Refill plastic jug and place Brita an plastic jug in frig
5. Repeat everyday, sometimes 2-3 times a day
