Do Better Thursday: Back In the Groove…

 
 “Thought you could leave that easily?”
What it is good people? 
Hope everything’s been everything… Also, hope you got a chance to follow the Black Music History “Group Session” Series… I attempted to get 28 groups in there… but uh… life happens?
Well, really Lost happened during the Snowathon and completely took all of my attention away from Do Better activity… I watched all 5 seasons in the span of 10 days… yes, this is the part where you shake your head… I’m currently shaking mine… 
…and all for what? Have you seen this seasons mess? It’s like nothing from the past 5 years matters… I won’t get too deep into it… but I’ve completely given up trying to rationalize or tie this season to anything prior to episode 1 of season 6… 
anyhoos… let’s get to it… getting back in the flow… so the “Doing It Rights” and “Doing It Wrongs”… will appear randomly…
  • Just came across this moments before typing this blog… a trailer for a documentary on the Kinshasa Symphony… “Central Africa’s one and only symphony orchestra”… http://www.kinshasa-symphony.com/
  • Like with most things in life… there’s a silver lining for events and situations we first view unfavorable… this can be applied to my Lost-Snowathon-Do-Nothing-But-Eat-Bad-and-Sleep February… once I came out of that fog… I looked down… looked at the mirror… then back down… and I realized I wasn’t on a horse… if I was on a horse… it would probably buck my outta shape ass off… Enter: Tony Horton and P90X… I’ve always considered myself pretty fit… but there was no denying… the absence of a regular workout and lack of exercise was becoming pretty obvious… with that… and the help of some friends taking up the challenge as well… I started the 90 day program… Granted I’m only on Day 5… my push-up / pull-up game is horrid… and my body has been in a constant state of soreness that only spans to new muscles each day… I fully intend to complete this program… and may even post pictures of before and after… 100% dependent on the outcome… ๐Ÿ˜‰ …if you’ve been thinking about doing it… don’t think… just do it… or has they say… Bring It!
 
 Don’t worry, he’s a lot nicer on the DVDs…
  • For my people in need of a football fix… and a laugh… (keeping the health theme going…) Rich Eisen of the NFL Network runs the 40 yard dash… he didn’t do that bad either… well… considering he’s running in a suit…
  • Ahh… the Doing It Wrong… and Doing It Right of the internet… much has been made of the Epic Beard Man fight… or beatdown of Brother Shoe Shine… ignorance in all it’s glory… fortunately, in the end… creativity (there’s that silver lining again…) has the last say… check out Epic Beard Punchout…
 
  •  J Smooth of the Nil Doctrine formerly Ill Doctrine addresses the Waka Flocka Flame issue… this isn’t an anti-Waka Flocka segment… but does shed some light on the misconceptions young rappers tend to have… by the way, the more I hear Mr. Flame speak off the mic… the more I respect him… although his raps are nonsense… he does appear to at least know what he’s doing (or not doing…) …and who to pay honor to… see: Method Man…
  • Raheem DeVaughn releases “The Love and War MasterPeace”… I haven’t gotten a chance to listen to it… I did buy it from Amazon.com in time for the $3.99 MP3 download special… I may blog my thoughts on it next week… or perhaps tweet them… if you haven’t gotten your copy… GOOOO!!!
 
  • Greivis Vasquez and the Maryland Terrapins defeat Duke on Senior Night… posting this mainly because it was on while I was typing this blog entry… and I Hate Duke… plus, Maryland gets local love… Congrats College Park, helluva game…
 
  • I’m back on my t-shirt game… looking to revamp the site (www.onustees.com) and blog this Spring / Summer… also, going to reprint some tees and print new ones… here’s a candidate for the new… seems a little vague, i know… I’ll reveal the meaning and title closer to the launch date… ๐Ÿ™‚
as always…

try to do better than you did yesterday…
peace,
