Black Eyed Peas - The Time (Dirty Bit) (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

I know this new Black Eyed Peas song "The Time (Dirty Bit)" is super poppy and not the typical shit that I post but I thought it was worth throwing up because the video is kind of cool and I'm actually starting to like the song for some reason. I think it might be because the beat is hypnotizing me or from the Black Eyed Peas secret formula that subliminally makes you like their music but all things considering, I actually think it's decent if you're in the mood for a poppy dance/electro joint.

I HATE the fact that they are using/remixing a verse from that song from Dirty Dancing "Time of My Life" (I feel like an asshole for even knowing that) but the rest of the song is solid enough. It's defintely still a love/hate type thing and I'm not totally sold on it but at least I will be able to tolerate it for a few weeks until radio plays it over and over again and makes me eventually hate it...

Dallas Mavericks Remake Kanye’s “Power” Video (NOT BAD)

The Dallas Mavericks' marketing department has been working overtime this year and have put out some quality videos so far.  Earlier this season Caron Butler did a spoof of the Old Spice commercials and they took it to another level with this remix of Kanye's "Power" video.  Not bad. 

This video made it’s debut Saturday, Nov. 27th when the Mavs crushed the Heat by 11 with a final score of 106-95.  That was a perfect game to unveil this video considering the Heat thought they had "all that power" before they ever played a game.  As they have quickly learned, it takes more than just talent to make a team.  You also need chemistry, role players, and a decent Center and/or Point Guard; something that the Heat seem to be lacking really badly. 

I have to admit, the quality of the Mavs version is pretty damn good now that I am seeing the original again.  Here's the original "Power" video so you can compare the two for yourself.

Michael Jordan's Response to LeBron's "What Should I Do?" Commercial (AWESOME MASHUP)

Mad props go out to the person who created this video because it's absolutely genius.  If Michael Jordan were to speak directly with LeBron about all of his recent bullshit, this is almost exactly what he would say.  I hope LeBron sees this because it is exactly what needs to hear right now with the Heat struggling and acting like a bunch of bitches.  Instead of trying to take the easy road, why don't you actually work harder?  No one has ever been handed a championship.

It just goes to show how much things have changed from one generation of superstars to the next in just a short period of time.  MJ always talked about busting his ass and not taking things for granted and on the other end, LeBron is whining and making excuses like a little bitch.  Dude needs a reality check.

Here is the original Jordan commercial called "Maybe" from which the audio was taken to create this video mashup.  It's defintiely a classic Jordan commercial:

Keri Hilson ft. Rick Ross - "The Way You Love Me" (MAD BOOTY)

This new Keri Hilson song "The Way You Love Me" is pretty horrible but with a video like that I don't really give a shit.  I was completely mesmerized by all of that juicy booty bouncing around and barely heard a thing any way.  Damn!

Keri is looking unbelievable in these slutty little outfits and blond wig.  It looks like she hit the gym hard recently.  Ain't nothing wrong with that.  Check out this classic screenshot.  Yummy!

Kanye West Performs "Power" On SNL (OLD BUT STILL DOPE)

I know Kanye's performance on SNL happened back in October but I just saw it for the first time this weekend during a repeat episode and I was completely blown away so I thought I would throw it up for anyone else that might have also missed it.

I've never seen such an intense and creative live performance on SNL, at least in recent memory.  Everything about it was just unbelievable.  Kanye did a great job of taking his video for the song and bringing it to life which is usually impossible to do.  You have to give him props on this.  So dope.

Awesome Interception from Oklahoma State/Oklahoma Game (NASTY)

I'm not a big college football fan so I didn't catch this clip from Saturday's Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State game until just now but if you watched any highlights this weekend, you might have already seen this nastiness.  This is probably the best interception of the season and maybe even one of the best in recent years. 

I'm surprised you don't see the defense try to do this more often but obviously the situation has to be right.  I bet a lot of players don't even realize you can do this but I'm sure many more will be trying it in the future.  Mad props to Oklahoma State’s Brodrick Brown for having both the athletic ability and brains to pull this off.

Eminem ft. Lil Wayne - "No Love" (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

I didn't even realize there was a video out for Eminem's "No Love" but it's actually been out since September 29th. Whoops.  I guess I can't catch everything.  This song has been getting a ton of radio rotation and has become one of my favorite current songs so I figured it was better late than never for posting it up.  Cool vid...

DMC-12 x Nike 6.0 “DeLorean Dunk” (DOPE)

Damn!  These kicks are hot!  Nike can't stop dropping hot Back to the Future inspired kicks.  I love it.  This time around, Nike decided to create a shoe utilizing the styling of the DeLorean and the things look sick.  I love the stainless steel look with the shiny grey leather and the brake light coloring on the sole.  I'm surprised they never thought of this before because they look great.  This limited edition Dunk drops Black Friday as a quickstrike release at Nike.com, Nike Towns, and select retailers.

Danny MacAskill: Way Back Home (CRAZY BMX TRICKS)

I wouldn't call myself a big fan of the X-Games type sports but I definitely respect their game and can give credit where it's due.  Some of the stuff these guys pull off is incredible and this video starring Danny MacAskill is another perfect example.  This dude is pulling off some parkour type moves on his bike!  Shit is crazy.  You gotta respect that...

Nicki Minaj ft. Kanye West - Blazin' (NEW ISH)

Nicki Minaj's new album Pink Friday dropped at the end of last week and even though I said I wasn't sure about whether I would buy it, I ended up downloading it as soon as I heard this song.  I was just completely blown away by Nicki's flow in this song and I just had to hear more.  She absolutely destroyed that first verse with one of the fastest rhymes I've ever heard from a female rapper.  That was just nasty!

Kanye also brought the heat on "Blazin'" and when you combine arguably two of the hottest rappers in the game right now, you end up with one killer track.  I'm very impressed with what Nicki Minaj put together on this album and I feel bad for doubting her.  I thought she was just one of those fly by night chicks but she's got some serious talent and is going to be around for a long time.

Sneak Peek at Swizz Beatz' New Signature Reeboks (CRAZY/COOL)

I'm not sure how Swizz Beatz ended up getting his own signature shoe from Reebok considering he's not exactly the most relevant or famous Hip Hop figure currently but I guess he earned it from all of his hard work on the production boards over the years.  
Anyway, this is the first look at his new shoe and although they are kind of crazy, I think I like them.  I've always been a fan of funky and exotic sneaker designs so this one definitely fits that bill.  At first glance, they reminded me a lot of the Reebok Kamikaze 1 & 2 that Shawn Kemp used to wear back in the mid 90's.  I wore the O.G. Kamikaze's my Junior and Senior year so I anything that looks similar to them brings me back and immediately catches my attention.
I'll have to see these Swizz Beatz Reeboks in person before I make a final decision but they look like they have some serious potential.

Adidas 'Fast Don't Lie' Gregory Brothers Remix (DECENT)

Those Auto-Tune the News guys, The Gregory Brothers, got a hold of the Adidas 'Fast Don't Lie" commercials featuring Slim Chin (Ken Jeong), Dwight Howard and Derick Rose and added their own personal touch to create a cool new remix.  I think I actually like this better than the originals.

Pitbull ft. T-Pain - "Hey Baby (Drop It To The Floor)" (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

This is kind of more of the same from Pitbull but I'm not gonna hate because dude has found his niche and perfect formula for success.  He doesn't even mess with regular rap beats anymore.  He just goes for those uptempo dance beats that get the ladies wet and makes that shit work.  I can't complain.  He gives DJs like myself a lot of good material to get the dance floor moving and keeping the ladies shaking their asses.  Respect.

"Hey Baby (Drop It To The Floor)" appears on Pitbull's forthcoming album, PlanetPit dropping on December 7th.

Jay-Z on Late Show With David Letterman (COOL)

Jay-Z on Late Show with David Leterman

Here's Jay-Z's interview with Letterman from last week.  I don't think it's as good as his interview on The Howard Stern Show since Letterman is fairly clueless and not as good of an interviewer as Stern  but it was still solid to hear more from the Jigga Man.  I hate reading books but I have to pick up Decoded.  It sounds very interesting based on Jay's description.

Blake Griffin Dunking All Over the Knicks (DISGUSTING)

The Clippers have been sucking as usual this season even though they finally have some talent but the one bright spot has been the return and play of Blake Griffin.  He was out all last year because of a broken knee cap but he has quickly proven that injury will not slow him down.  Actually, he looks stronger and better than ever.  He has some of the most unbelievable hops I've ever seen on a big man.  He not only jumps high but also has both finesse and power at the same time.  It's like he's some new freak version of Dominique Wilkins.

I think my favorite dunk in this game against the Knicks was the spin move into the two foot tomahawk over Gallinari.  Not only was this a nasty dunk and move but Griffin showed that he also has a great handle for a big man.  He ended up with 44 points 15 rebound and 7 assists although they still ended up losing.  You can't blame him though, since he did everything in his power to try and help the Clippers win.  Dude is NASTY!

Here's another clip of the insane "No Rim Dunk" where he basically hangs in the air and gets so high that he just throws it through the rim.  Sick!

J. Cole - "Friday Night Lights" Mixtape (DOPE)

I just got done listening to the new J. Cole mixtape Friday Night Lights and once again, he's bringing the heat.  This dude keeps getting better with each new release.  He's definitely increasing the anticipation for his first official album Cole World which is set to drop in December.  You can give it a listen first if you want but I'm pretty sure this will be an immediate download after you're done.  Hot shit!

Reggie Watts - "Pancakes" Live Improv Freestyle on Sirius|XM (USING EVERYDAY LOOPER ON iPHONE)

You might remember the post I did a few months ago about Reggie Watts and his impressive beatbox and freestyle rapping skills.  He's back again with some more cool shit, this time doing a live improv freestyle using only his iPhone on Sirius|XM radio during an interview with Ron Bennington. 

Reggie used the iPhone App Everyday Looper to create the beats and loops.  I downloaded this the other day and although it takes a little getting used to since the controls aren't completely obvious, once you get a hang of it, you can make some really cool music.  I didn't exactly come up with something as original as "Pancakes" to rap about but I'm still working on it...

MarshBros Hat Project (JUST WATCH)

I don't have much to say about this video other than it's way cooler than I expected. I'll give out props for originality as well.  I don't think there were any special effects used although I'm sure there was plenty of editing and multiple takes for each shot.

I'm sure they caught a few brims to the face while trying to catch the best shots.  That shit can hurt if you catch it the wrong way.  My sister can definitely vouch for that.   Back when we young and were fighting about some dumb shit, on my way out of the room I grabbed a hat on the dresser and flicked it at her behind my back like a Frisbee. The brim of the hat spun at just the right time and DRILLED her in the eye and made a popping sound like I threw a rock at her head.  She ended up having a black eye and I caught the wrath of my Mom since she had to deny child abuse accusations for about a week.  I could never do that again if I tried...

Thursday Throwbacks: Lil' Kim feat. Lil Cease - "Crush On You"

Ah man!  That intro gets me every time!  Dun-dun, dun dun, dun dun, dun dun....

I'm not a huge fan of female rap but this was my shit back in 1997.  Lil Kim was in her prime looking all slutty, strutting around in skimpy outfits with crazy colored wigs and shit.  Good times.  And for anyone that is all about Nicki Minaj these days, just remember that the Queen Bee did it first.  Everyone else is just an imitation. 

"Crush On You" samples Jeff Lorber Fusion's "Rain Dance" which is a cool smooth jazz old school classic!  Love this song...

DjRyB.com - Addicted to Sneakers, Sports, Hip Hop and Gadgets

Wow.  Please tell me that all of this cool shit is actually in the process of being made and this isn't just some jerk that's good with special effects toying with my geekiness.  This shit is legit!  Who wouldn't want an alarm clock that stretches into an internet connected tablet for all of your early morning news? 

Actually, forget that.  I want the computer screen in the bathroom mirror!  So sick!  I experienced something similar once at the St. Regis Hotel in D.C. where they had a small flat screen built into the mirror.  Not quite the same but let me tell you, there's nothing better than dropping a deuce or brushing your teeth while watching SportsCenter in the morning.  Good times.

I'm not sure I like the concept of the see through computer screen considering  I work in a cube all day with a wall behind my computer so it's kind of pointless but the concept is cool.  I already have a screen protector to keep snooping bitches off my case when I'm watching YouTube all day so I don't really need more people seeing what I'm doing. 

"Like a Bosh!" - Spoof of the SNL "Like a Boss" Clip (CHRIS BOSH OWNED)

TBJ exclusive: Like A Bosh from The Basketball Jones on Vimeo.

The Miami Heat bashing has been at full tilt since the season began but most of the hatred has been focused on LeBron James for the most part so it's nice to see Chris Bosh finally start to catch some heat too.

If you've been paying attention to the NBA at all, you would know that Bosh has been a huge disappointment and looks completely lost in the court.  The Heat needed a banger in the post to grab rebounds and play tough defense but instead they got a smaller and shittier version of Dirk Nowitzki which basically means a big guy who only shoots jumpers and shies away from any kind of contact or banging down low. 

Maybe it's because I hate the Heat and all of the hoopla but I thought the "Like a Bosh" video was funny as hell.  It was so up to date that they even had the picture of Rondo posterizing Bosh from the game against the Celtics last Thursday!  Awesome.  Bosh might have seen this video before last night's game though because he ended up going off for 35 points.  He still only had 6 rebounds though. Pathetic. 

Here's the original SNL skit "Like a Boss".  Classic.

Girl Talk - 'All Day' (NEW ALBUM/MIX)

   Girl Talk - All Day by walt74

Nice!  This new album came out of nowhere and was a nice surprise for Girl Talk fans.  I hate saying the name because it sounds like some sissy shit but I can deal with it because dude puts out some unbelievable mashup mixes.

If you've never heard of Girl Talk but like Hip Hop, Pop, Rock & R&B or just mashups in general then you should check this shit out ASAP.  Girl Talk takes literally hundreds of samples and mashes them all together to create a completely new "song".  The whole album is really meant to be listened together as one long mix.  It felt like it ended kind of abruptly for me but it was mostly due to the fact that I just wanted it to keep going. 

All Day is probably one of the best Girl Talk albums to date. It has a heavy Hip Hop influence this time around which is why I really liked it but it's got enough of every genre in there to make anyone happy.  It's kind of fun to sit there and try and figure out what all of the samples are even though sometimes there are 10 samples in a 10 second clip.  Shit is crazy!

You can download the album for free at Illegal-Art.net.

Sneakerpedia.com - The World's Greatest Sneaker Archiving Project (DOPE)

Sneakerpedia Trailer from Sneakerpedia on Vimeo.

This might be one of the best sneaker related ideas I've heard in a long time. Sneakerpedia, powered by Foot Locker, is a new web project to help create the world’s largest collection of sneaker data available anywhere. Simply stated, it's "The world's greatest sneaker archiving project."  You’ll be able to upload pictures of your collection, tag them with the correct identifying information and search for other favorites all in one place. 

I guarantee once this gets up and running that this could become one of the most addicting sneaker sites ever made.  Whenever I see a shoe that I completely forgot about, it brings back great memories and also helps me think of some other classics along the way.  If Sneakerpedia has them all in once place, I may never leave the damn site!  Dopeness. 

Sneakerpedia is currently in Beta but I'll be sure to give an update once it's open to the public. 

Pop-A-Shot Dominance By 2 Chicks (INCREDIBLE)

OK, what kind of ridiculous Pop-A-Shot training is going on over in Asia?  They are breeding some incredible shooters over there and they all seem to be girls.  I saw this first video the other day and thought it was impressive as shit considering she only missed about 5 shots (102/107 maybe?) on the moving target.  That is pretty unbelievable.     

Then I saw this second video below and was completely blown away.  The chick didn't miss a freakin' shot and only hit the rim on about 4 of them.  WOW!  It wasn't a moving rim like the other one but it's still insane that she didn't miss one.  She ended up with 256 points!  Good lord!

Nicki Minaj feat. Eminem - 'Roman's Revenge' (NEW ISH)

I've been hearing "Roman's Revenge" on Sirius quite a bit lately and I have to say, this is a ridiculously hot track.  I can go back and forth on Nicki Minaj since she can aggravate me at times but she CRUSHED this track.  Not to be outdone, Eminem stepped his game up as well and uses his energized rapid fire flow that we all came to love earlier in his career.  I love hearing Em rap like this.  There is just no one that can f*** with him when he does that.

I didn't think I was going to get the new Nicki Minaj album but I think I'm coming around.  Everything I've heard so far has been solid.  I've never been a big fan of female rappers but something about Nicki is starting to grab my attention. It doesn't hurt that she's hot as shit too!

Jay-Z On The Howard Stern Show Promoting New Book 'Decoded' (COOL)

Howard Stern has always been one of the best interviewers in the media for a long time and his interview of Jay-Z from yesterday's show (11.15.10) was no exception.  Stern doesn't usually interview a ton of rappers but when he does it's always very interesting.

He doesn't know much about Hip Hop as a whole so he ends up asking questions that are very different from the typical Urban Radio/TV interview which is refreshing.  He always gets very deep with his guests almost like he is putting them through a therapy session and it almost always ends up being one of the best interviews that artist has ever given.  I thought Jay-Z was very cool and forthcoming in this interview.  He's usually very guarded so it was nice hearing him open up about his life quite a bit.

Jay-Z was promoting his new book Decoded which is available in stores today.  Although I generally hate to read books, this is a definite must cop.   

Kyle Singler "Gets Buckets" In Trick Shot Video (NOT BAD)

Although I'm not affiliated with any particular Division 1 college, I still have an extreme hatred for all things Duke.  It might be because I took on North Carolina as one of my favorite college hoops teams because of my man Michael Jordan but in all honesty, that isn't even the main reason.  They always seem to have the most annoying and polarizing players in college basketball each year and they just seem to piss me off along with millions of other people.  You either love them or hate them.  There is no in between.  I give them props for all of their winning ways but I still can't stand them.

For some reason though, I actually seem to like Kyle Singler.  He seems like a good kid and he has an impressive all around game.  I hate admitting it but sometimes you gotta give credit where credit is due.  To top it all off, Singler seems pretty cool in this video too.  He doesn't seem to take himself too seriously and just loves the game of basketball.  You can't be mad at that.

Kanye West Ft Talib Kweli & Consequence - "Chain Heavy" (NEW ISH FROM MY BEAUTIFUL DARK TWISTED FANTASY )

Damn!  This is a hot ass track!  It's got a cool old school vibe which makes sense since Q-Tip was ib the beat.  Kanye also goes real hard on the track.  That's probably one of the more aggressive flows he's had in a few years now.  It's nice hearing him motivated and rapping with a passion again.  As much as he can be a pain in the ass and an egotistical maniac, he's still one of the best in the game.

Kanye's new album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy drops tomorrow.  Shit is gonna be tight!

Shaq Visits Cheers in Boston and Sits In Norm's Seat (COOL)

It seems like Shaq has been almost everywhere in Boston already and he's only been here for a few months.  He is just doing his thing acting like a tourist and wandering around town like he's an everyday normal guy.  I thought it was kind of crazy when he sat as a statue in Harvard Square but hanging out in Norm's seat at Cheers singing the them song and having a laugh with everyone is just plain awesome.

I don't even think he is trying to win the people over at this point. I think he just genuinely likes the city of Boston.  Everyone loved him as soon as he got here and the infatuation has not waned.  We've never had a superstar athlete that was so willing to be out in public like this and the fans have embraced him even more because of that.  Shaq is definitely a man of the people.  Hopefully I get to see him hanging out around town one day randomly.  At this point, it's totally possible...

Gary Dell'Abate Still Throws Like A Girl (HORRIBLE)

Gary Dell'Abate (aka Baba Booey from the Howard Stern Show) was on Jimmy Kimmel Live last Thursday to promote his new book.  Jimmy thought he would give him a chance to redeem himself for that horrible first pitch at a Mets game this past summer but instead, he just proved that he just sucks at baseball and throws like a bitch.  He even drilled some lady in the crowd in the back of the head!  So bad.

Here is the original pitch with multiple angles.  There is no way he can throw well like he claims.  There is nothing about that form that says "athletic ability".

Bun B ft. Slim Thug & Play N Skillz - "Ridin Slow" (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

Dope shit.  Plain and simple.  "Ridin' Slow" is one of my favorite tracks off of Bun B's Trill OG album. It's a smooth, laid back joint with a simple but catchy hook.  That's all you really need sometimes. If you're still sleeping on this album, I don't even know what to tell you at this point.  It's still one of the best albums of 2010 and it's actually getting better with age.  Cop that shit!

Kanye West Gets Pissed at Matt Lauer on The Today Show (AWKWARD)

 Kanye West was interviewed by Matt Lauer on The Today Show earlier this week and saying that it was uncomfortable would be an understatement.  Kanye opened up and actually empathized with George Bush and basically apologized for calling him a racist but of course he didn't make it through the interview without his ego getting in the way and making things extremely awkward.  He flipped out when they played the clip of him interrupting Taylor Swift at the MTV Music Awards underneath him with audio while he was talking.  He had a point that it was distracting and completely unnecessary but he certainly could have handled it better.  Relax dude!

And since it is relevant, here is the clip of Kanye's infamous "George Bush doesn't care about black people" speech during the Hurricane Katrina fundraiser.  Just watch Mike Myers' face when he realizes what is going on.  It's like he saw a ghost.  Unintentional comedy gold!

Celtics Beat Heat Again - Ray Allen Goes Off for 35 Points (NASTY)

That was another awesome win by the Celtics over the Heat last night.  Do you think the Heat and their fans are starting to get worried yet?  If not, they should be.  The Celtics proved once again that the Heat cannot compete against a team with an All-Star level Point Guard or Center and in the case of the Celtics, both.

I just don't see the Heat being able to do anything this year as the team is currently constructed.  Bosh is showing that he is not the best fit for this team since he is a jump shooting Power Forward who doesn't rebound.  That's not what the Heat need.  Good luck trying to figure that one out guys. 

The C's looked solid all around as they have all year long but Ray Allen really stood out with 35 Points and 7 three pointers including 6 threes in a row at one point.  I love it when he gets on fire.  You literally can't stop him.

The one down side to this game was the fact that the Celtics were up by as much as 20 points and ahead by 15 fairly late in the game.  Once again, Doc continues his terrible substitution patterns that allow the opposing team to get back in the game even when they have a huge lead.  I just don't get it.  Luckily the C's were able to pull off the win but one of these days, this will come back to bite them in the ass like it did last season.

The best highlight of the night was Rondo's dunk over Chris Bosh.  DEEZ NUTS!!!  That probably could have been a foul as well but at least he threw it down.  Rondo needs to do that more often.  If he can get to the hoop like that and dunk over big guys, it will be almost impossible to stop him.

Mayer Hawthorne - "No Strings" Roller Boogie Remix by DJ Jazzy Jeff (FRESH)

"Brand new funk!"  That's what this shit is right here!  I'm loving this joint. I'm a big fan of Jazzy Jeff and Mayer Hawthorne so I was hoping this song wouldn't suck and it luckily, it didn't disappoint.  This is just smooth as hell!

Mike Batiste Destroys Some Foreign Dude With a Kick to the Head (SERIOUSLY FLAGRANT FOUL)

DAMN!  Fix your face son!  You just got stomped the F*** out!!!!

I don't follow foreign basketball but I might start if they pull off shenanigans like this on a regular basis.  The instigator, Mike Batiste only received an unsportsmanlike foul but was allowed to stay in the game!  If that happened in the NBA these days, dude would have been tossed immediately, fined and suspended for multiple games. 

You might recognize Mike Batiste from his playing days in the US.  He went to Arizona State in the late 90's and briefly played in the NBA. He led the Pacific Ten Conference (Pac-10) in blocked shots during the 1997–98 season and was named First Team Pac-10 in 1998–99. He also played for the Memphis Grizzlies for the 2002-2003 season.

5'10" Jahii Carson Throwing Down Sick Dunks (MAD HOPS)

Jahii Carson is listed at 5'10" but there is a high probability that he might he a little shorter which would make his dunking ability even more impressive.  Dude looks like he is bouncing off a trampoline every time he takes off.  So nasty!

My favorite dunk was around the 1:06 mark where he got the ball on the fast break, bounced it off the ground and then WINDMILLED before he threw it down.  A regular dunk off the bounce would have been good enough but he took it to the next level with that.  Most guys his size that can dunk usually can't do anything special at game speed but this kid looks like he can do it all.  Look for Jahii Carson next year at Arizona State.

Crying Baby Finally Relaxes When He Hears Bob Marley (FUNNY)

We've seen this before with the Heavy Metal Baby but it never really gets old.   I absolutely love it when babies jam out to "adult" music.  Something about it is just hilarious.  This one was even better than others I've seen because the kid was freaking out while his Dad was playing some awful music and then totally changed his demeanor as soon as they threw on some Bob Marley.  I can almost guarantee this kid is going to be a pothead when he grows up.  He's already reacting to reggae appropriately. 

I'm pretty sure I'll be posting something similar to this video at some point next year once my baby is old enough to dance around a bit.  The wifey seems to think I will be playing safe kiddy music in the car but I can guarantee that my kid will grow up listening to Hip Hop and will be Stuntin' Like It's Daddy.  Best believe it...

Utah Jazz Beat Miami Heat in OT - Milisap Goes Off for 46 Points (SICK GAME)

I didn't see this game last night but I have to celebrate any Miami Heat loss, especially when it's in such dramatic fashion.  Paul Milisap went off for a career-high 46 points, including three perfectly timed 3-pointers late in the fourth quarter.  He was shooting threes like it's part of his game but in actuality they were actually his 3rd, 4th and 5th three pointers of his career (5 seasons).  Wow!  On top of that, he hit a game-tying layup at the end of regulation to put the game into OT which allowed the Jazz to eventually take the lead for good.

Millsap ended the game shooting 19 of 28 with nine rebounds.  That was by far the best performance of the NBA season so far and definitely the best game of Milisap's career.  Don't look for him to play like that again any time soon but if he can perform at even 50% of that pace, look out for the Jazz.

Keenan Cahill Ft. 50 Cent - "Down On Me" (THAT SCARY LITTLE LIP SYNCING MIDGET DUDE)

WOW.  My girl Chelsea Handler did it again.  She might be one of the only people in Hollywood that can make this random ass combination happen.  I'm still not sure WTF just happened. 

I assume you've probably seen little man Keenan Cahill's lip sync videos by now since he's become internet famous basically because of his creepiness but just in case you don't know what I'm talking about, check out some of his videos below.  Basically he is just a kid in his bedroom that makes weird ass videos that people love for some reason.  It's basically a super addicting train wreck. You can try and pull away but it's just not possible.  You'll find yourself 5 videos in before you know what hit you.

Keenan is so big now that he got 50 Cent all up in his video as a special guest even though it's 50's actual song!  Ain't that some shit.  He's "just a dude playing a dude disguised as another dude" or something like that. I'm all fucked up now. That's some bizarro world type shit. Definitely fake life.

John Wall's Reebok Zig Slash "Gold Rush" (SLICK)

John Wall made his Madison Square Garden debut on Friday Night with 13 points and 7 assists. It wasn't his best game as a pro but it might have been his best shoe game of the year with the introduction of his Reebok Zig Slash "Gold Rush".

There were only 12 "Gold Rush" shoes made. Each had a special commemorative patch sewn on the inside of the tongue. The shoe box was actually a gold-detailed black lock box, which comes with a key and numbered keychain. They were sold exclusively at the Foot Locker on West 34th Street and I'm sure they were gone in a matter of minutes because of the hyper exclusivity.

Here are a few detailed pics of the very bright and flashy shoe.

Terrell Owens' Mime TD Celebration (NASTY)

We haven't seen many creative TD celebrations from T.O. and Ochocinco so far this year for two reasons.  Neither has scored many touchdowns and the Bengals really suck.  That will definitely put a damper on things.  I was expecting a lot more when I heard these two were going to be playing together but maybe this is the beginning of something good.   

This mime impersonation from T.O. during last night's Monday Night Football game was ridiculously on point.  He must have been practicing this for awhile because that was certainly as good as any creepy mime I've ever seen.  T.O. might have a second career waiting for him in retirement...
