  1. if your inclined to fill your lungs with smoke, then you’ve experienced being out somewhere and stuck with no lighter. Trust, you’ll be thankful for that emergency pack of matches at the bottom of your purse or backpack or glove compartment. Pretty inconvenient if you’re a pipe enthusiast, however if your a pape roller those matches can be sooo crucial for that initial and one-time only light-up.
  2.   and this ones so #outtapocket but so #real: If you find yourself in need of a release, the bowel moving kind, but your somewhere with people not understanding of your need to engage in a sometimes foul smelling bodily function who are likely to make you feel embarrassed about it, matches surprisingly will make a smell disappear as quickly as they burn out. Just strike a match and walk around the bathroom until it goes out. The smell will be gone and so will that pang in your tummy! nah, furrealdoe, this works, scouts honor.

you’ll thank me, i’ll wait.


Please, take me back…

“A War For Your Soul” via Vimeo

A MUST SEE. Look past the production quality and the execution and its an excellent video. A hard-hitting, TRUTHFUL, and very real message no doubt.

Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra

A couple of weeks ago I had to absolute privilege of seeing Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra live.

Suffice to say the experience (and yes it was quite an experience) was nothing short of an emotional journey, a metaphysical roller-coaster, a theoretical debate and a conversation about humanity. IT WAS INCREDIBLE. Absolutely the best live performance I’ve seen to date, it’s left me wanting more ever since. They brought new meaning to the word LIVE turning the Itsy Bitsy Spider and Happy Birthday into musical masterpieces (beyond the classics they all ready are, of course).  I only wish I could provide video of the performance, instead I give you the next best thing(s): a youtube of Wynton and the JLCO playing “Portrait of Louis Armstrong,” an excerpt of one of Wynton’s many interviews with Charlie Rose and my strong encouragement to catch them live next time they’re in your city!

The End of the World…In a Nutshell.

In from peacepaceselam, World News on October 14, 2009 at 9:21 pm

A friend of mine showed this to me the other day (thanks Nicole). I figured since I post articles about what’s currently hapenning in the world it’d only be appropriate to share a youtube cartoon about how its going to end.

If nothing else, this video is proof that everything sounds better with an accent…
