Brand New Day: Day 1

Tonight during my cab ride home I was thinking on all the things I had been doing to try and make a change in my life, and a thought snapped into my head. "What if I just do 1 New thing every day"

And in that simple moment birthed "Brand New Day." Every day I will attempt to make sure I do something I have never done before. It doesn't have to be some big grandiose gesture in fact I think in the beginning at least, small things are better. So to kick of My BND project I have done something I've wanted to do for a few weeks now, I've recorded myself performing some of my Poetry, big step for me, And the first step in a brand new day.

Best Part of the Interview: Rasheed Wallace yelling in the background.


I knew history would be made this week, We needed change and finally we will get it. Obama, McCain? Who cares.


There is a God, and he loves me. Finally my favorite NBA player and favorite team are 1 entity. AI is coming to Detroit. Sure we lose Chauncey Billups and McDyess but since I love Denver too I can't be mad. They needed a pure point guard and they got one, maybe he can help Melo out of the first round. But back to the point.


Finally after years of me trading him to the Pistons in my 2K season modes, Joe Dumars had listened to my advice. Iverson and Rasheed Wallace together? The Pistons will truly return to their bad boy days. The Pistons have a legitimate superstar who can score at will and has shown he can now play in a team setting. Offenses could barly keep up with RIP Hamilton, now they have to worry about the Answer speeding through the Motor City as well.

And even if it doesn't turn out since Iverson and Rasheed's contracts will expire at the end of the season this leaves the Pistons with money for the plethora of viable free agents in 2009 and 2010, if they don't resign. Joe Dumars is a genius, but it was my idea first.

I'm going to go pee my pants in excitment now.
And Remember if y'all mess up. Rasheed Wallace will eat you alive.

Two Arrested In Barack Obama Assassination Plot
October 27th, 2008 | Author: Andres Tardio

Law enforcement agents have announced that they have stopped an assassination plot that would have shot and decapitated more than 100 black people and Senator Barack Obama. The plan, set up by two Neo-Nazi Skinheads, was stopped by ATF agents and the report was released today by the US District Court in Jackson, Tennessee.

According to the reports, the plan was to rob a gun store and target a mostly African American high school to go on a killing spree. The two men charged with the crime did not name the school they had in mind.

The special agent in charge of ATF's Nashville Field Office is Jim Cavanaugh. he spoke to the AP and noted that the plan was to shoot 88 black people and behead another 14. According to Cavanaugh, the numbers 88 and 14 were used specifically because they are symbolic numbers in the white supremacist community.

The two also planned on following that up by going on another killing spree around the nation, ending with their final target, Senator Obama. Legal documents revealed they "planned to drive their vehicle as fast as they could toward Obama shooting at him from the windows."

"Both individuals stated they would dress in all white tuxedos and wear top hats during the assassination attempt. Both individuals further stated they knew they would and were willing to die during this attempt."

Cavanaugh also spoke on their intentions.

"They said that would be their last, final act — that they would attempt to kill Senator Obama. They didn't believe they would be able to do it, but that they would get killed trying."

"They seemed determined to do it. Even if they were just to try it, it would be a trail of tears around the south."

Senator Obama's spokesperson had no immediate comment on the matter at the time this story ran.

The names of both men were also revealed. Daniel Cowart, a 20 year old from Bells, Tennessee, and Paul Schlesselman, an 18 year old from Helena-West Helena, Arkansas, are both being held without bond, according to reports. A sawed-off shotgun, a rifle and three pistols were confiscated by authorities.

Sheriff Troy Klyce from Crockett County also spoke on the matter.

"Once we arrested the defendants and suspected they had violated federal law, we immediately contacted federal authorities," he noted.

Currently, the men are charged with conspiring to steal firearms from a federally licensed gun dealer, possession of an unregistered firearm, and threatening the life of a candidate for president. They are scheduled for a bond hearing this Thursday in Memphis.

Although Senator Obama has not spoken on the matter, he was back on the campaign trail this week. Today, he issued what his campaign billed as his "closing statement" as they make a final push toward the November 4 elections.

"We cannot let up for one day, one minute, or one second in this last week. Not now. Don't think for a minute that power concedes. We have a lot of work to do. We have to work like our future depends on it in this last week, because it does depend on it this week."

Constructing My Perfect Woman

I was thinking a few days ago that perhaps my issues with women may stem from the fact that I've never sat down and figured out what I actually want in a woman. (Besides Kerry)

(Heavenly Chorus Plays)

Okay lets get back to the partial fantasy instead of the total one. In all these years I have just gone with the logic of "oh she's talking to me, I should marry her." And while I've been lucky a few times but for the most part my dating endeavors have been less than favorable. Figured I might want to try someone with similar interests for once. So after thinking long and hard,nohomo, I have compiled a list of qualities and traits that I would be present in my perfect girl.

1. I need me a HIP-HOP chick. Now I listen to music CONSTANTLY and in the past, I've settled for a girl with good tastes in music. And that was cool, cause it usually meant I didn't have to listen to "hollabackgirl" more than once a year. But if there's one thing I love it's a Lady who loves her Hip-Hop. I want a Girl who I can have an intelligent argument with about why Jean Grae is/isn't better than Blackthought, someone who knows the difference between 9th Wonder and J Dilla, someone who can put me up onto some illness I haven't heard before. I want to be able to take my girl to a concert and have her know more than the one song she's heard on the radio and be rockin' out right with me.
Good Example: Amanda Diva or Lauryn Hill

Bad Example: Da Brat or Lil Mamma

TESTS: Name all members of the Wu-tang clan without wikipedia or know any verse of any song off Mos Def's Black on Both Sides

2. Hmm let's go for someone athletic too. Imma dude so I like me some sports(not baseball, baseball is lame) so I imagined it would be nice to be with someone who also enjoyed them. It would be cool to go to the basketball court with my girl and actually feel good about crossing her up because she knew better than to reach. Or watch a game with her without her deciding to route for a certain team because their colors are nice or their QB is cute. And who knows, maybe she'll cross me...(I KNOW. AND SHE WON'T) I hate baseball.
Good Ex: Candace Parker/Serena Williams

Bad Ex: Chyna/Sporty Spice

TEST: Hit a 3 pointer while still looking cute. (I can barely do either half of that)

3. N*E*R*D (minus the "*") Basically, I want to be able to watch Star Wars movie without some chick moaning about it or making me turn it off. Hey if she enjoys it, I may go out and buy an engagement ring before the Ewoks show up. Knowledge of comics books is a plus too. I've actually said to myself is any girl that greets me the way MJ greets Peter Parker in their 1st meeting will always have my heart.
Good Ex: Tina Fey/Velma

Bad Ex: The Napoleon Dynamite Chick/Myrtle Urkel

TEST: Greet Me at my door with MJ's famous line.

4. Um, I'm gonna need a chick who can tolerate a broke dude. Yes I do have a full time job, but I also have an apartment and bills, so If you catch me at the wrong part of the month it's not pretty. I have no problem spending money on a girl I like, but if you're gonna be all mad that I couldn't afford to buy the SpagettiO's with the hot dogs for our gourmet dinner tonight well then I think this is where we part. Here just for the hell of it here's the Miss Independent remix.

Good Ex: Upgrade You Beyonce

Bad Ex: Pay My Bills Beyonce

5. A Smart Lady. I'm stupid, I need someone to teach me thingstuff. Someone to teach me to cook, another language, school me on some economics, tell me why I shouldn't eat a bottle of Flinstone vitamins a day, or just whup me in scrabble. Bring it on.
Good Ex:Couldn't think of anyone at the time so here goes Rosario Dawson

Bad Ex: Gretchen

6. Someone to put up with me. I am by no means perfect. I'm immature and joke around too much, slightly insane, I work too much, I'm only marginally good looking, there's the aforementioned brokeness, and occasionally I'm a jerk. So if all that is appealing to you... You need a doctor.
TEST: Put Up with Me

7. Someone with their own funky style or demeanor. Normal People are boring, and who wants that. Got some strange quirks? Cool. You like to wear a bagpipe with you where ever you go? Awesome. Got your elbow pierced? That's a little much for me. But until that thumbs up.
Good Ex: Jack Davey/Janelle Monae

Bad Ex: This scares me.

TEST: Be like them, but original. You know?

As far as appearance goes, I'm not too picky. I have no defense for a nice smile, and I'm partial to black girls, they've had the home court advantage thus far. Prefer the T, in T&A, but hey, they're both pretty cool.

As long as we're fantasizing: I think I'd like to go for a tall chick cause usually I deal with shorties, and I would love a chick with locks in her hair or something.
And maybe a dragon. (too much fantasy?)

So there we go, there's my loose outline of what my perfect girl would be like. And now I will go be depressed because she does not exist and I will never find her, nor will I look because... weren't you paying attention? SHE'S NOT REAL. Now lets go out there and be miserable team.



That could have been real. Be careful. Stuff explodes sometimes.

The Dillon Speaks 9/23/08

The Dillon discusses life, leg hair, swag, Ciara, and Dilly Lovemoney makes a guest appearance.

So it's kind of hard to have a positive outlook on the day...

...when the first thing you do after stepping outside the front door is vomit in your own mouth.

Fruit Loops, milk, orange juice, toast, butter, Colgate, Listerine, and stomach acid.

All combined in my mouth at once. Running late so I couldn't go back inside to brush my teeth again, so I had to ride the train with that taste in my mouth for an hour.

It was a great experience, just thought I should share.

Future Goals and Plans

So I've been thinking a lot, well not a lot, just more than usual. Which essentially means I had a thought this week. And I need to set some goals for myself. Where do I want to be in my Life by the year 2018. I'll be 32, what kind of things do I want to accomplish, and in what time frame? I figure if I write them down somewhere it will force me to take some action on them because I will be accountable. Or, I could just erase this post and go heat up another hot pocket.


Kinda Seemed Like it needed Fireworks

Goal: Move to London

Time frame - TBA
Explanation: This has been something I've wanted to do for a while now, I figure everyone should live in another country for a while and since I never studied abroad and refuse to learn another language England seems like a good choice. So when do I plan to do this? Originally it wasn't going to be anytime soon, but a certain factor may be speeding up my departure from America.

John McCain and Sarah Palin. If these mofo's win the election, I will be out of here by 2010, I promise you. Just wait til I Get my money right.
Hopefully Obama will win and I can stick around until his second term is over in 2016.

Goal: Start My Own Production Company
Time Frame - 2010-2011
Explanation - I mean putting up little video skits on Youtube and facebook for the 8 people that watch them is all well and good. But at some point I need to step it up. So while half the money I save is going into my escape from the republicans fund the other half is going into everything I need to start my own Company. And if I just continue to make skits or comedy videos then so be, but dammit my videos about doodoo and nunchucks will look professional, Dammit.

Goal: Put a contact lens in my eye
Time Frame - Whenever
Explanation - Hey, don't judge me okay, so I can't put a contact lens in my eye. You act like you're all badass riding motorcycles and fighting bears. Get off my back man I'll do it when I'm ready.


Goal: Let's Go to Africa
Time Frame - 2013
Explanation: I need to fight a lion, the zoo won't let me bring boxing gloves into the cage with me so you know, Africa. And I gotta see the homeland. But the lions need to be put in their place first.

You ain't Bad.

Goal:Get Married & Have Kids
Time Frame - 2016
Explanation - I unnno, because I'm supposed to. Hopefully I love the woman, kids too I guess, but I will be forcing at least one of the kids to live out all my unfulfilled fantasies. It's my right as a parent. So if I don't fight the lion, someone will.

Exactly what me and my future family will look like.

Goal: Get Michael Jackson to stop touching boys and make another number 1 album
Time Frame - ?
Explanation - I like MJ, sheesh. I can hope right.



Time Frame - Now, please.
Explanation: I don't know exactly what, but I need her in my life.

More Goals later sleep now.

Just When I was starting to Get Depressed with life...

I see this...

I think everything will be alright.

Something Very Intelligent

So a friend of mine sent me this

I'm sorry you had to watch that. In order to make it up to you I will pass on a mixtape that my compadre Brandon helped put together by an Artist by the name of Rashid Amir and I likes. So check it out, my personal faves: In the Mood and Find A Way.

or I can bring you more nonsense. Your choice.

I'm back

Wow, I have been slacking, sorry.

Let's see what's happened since my last post:

- This chick got chosen to be a Vice Presidential Candidate

(Photo May Not Be Entirely Accurate)

- The MTV VMA's confirmed for me that I will never be watching MTV again.

- Football Season has begun again and so far Tom Brady has been injured and will be gone for the entire season,

(Yeah Buddy, talkin bout YOU.)
Donovan McNabb has returned to his awesome glory, and Eli Manning is still a sissy. GO FARVE WHOOOOOOO!!!

- I rented the movie "War" starring Jet Li, and Jason Statham(the poor man's Vin Diesel) and it is easily one of the worst movies ever. And not in the good way where a movie is hilarious when it's bad, no, it was horrible. If for some reason you run a concentration camp and would like to torture your prisoners please make them watch "War" i guarantee at least four suicides for every 6 captives you have.

- I visited St Johns, my Alma thingy, during a party to see how the old campus was and I will never do that again. Nothing brings absolute clarity to whether or not you belong in a location more than a Seventeen year old freshman asking you if you want to go back to her dorm room and listen to the Shwayze album.

(I don't know where these dudes came from, but they can go back)

- My apartment has couches. If this doesn't seem like a big deal to you, then you've never been to my apartment.

- My glasses got stolen at the basketball court. Who steals glasses?!

- Entourage is back and once again it makes me hate my life. And I have a good life. Stupid Vinny Chase.

- For some reason nature hates us and has been sending constant hurricanes to make sure we know it.

- and finally I am still in Love with Kerry Washington

(If you see her let her know)

Okay hopefully I won't miss this many days again and stay away from Kerry.

AY-YO look out for that mixtape droppin real soon. Or not.

The Diggers. One The Way Home From Jones Beach....

Throwback word of the Day: Da Bomb Diggity

As inspired by the post below.

Urban dictionary says: used to the describe the best of the best, most crazy awesome, exceeds expectations of what would be considered "DA Bomb." You can only call a small amount of people this before it loses its meaning.

So please use this word in your vocabulary today.

Solange Knowles is cool.

Not only do I like her new single "I decided" better than anything her sister has put out but this video has given me another reason to say Solange is da bomb diggity (throwback word of the day).

Some dude Rolls up on her Performance half way through and she's so chill about it.

I would let him stay for like a second then my security team would have drop kicked him in the neck.

Wednesday, August 13, 2008

Are you ready?????????

For Dill tha M.C.?!?!?!?!?!

Well you better be, cause the mixtape is dropping soon. (I've always wanted to say that.)

And as much as I may regret it I am taking suggestions for rap names in the comments section....
