selfie

I’m not sure exactly when the selfie became the big thing but we are definitely living in the age of “look at me now.” Director Matthew Frost for VS Magazine teamed up with Kristen Dunst to have a little fun of the latest craze. The satirical short titled “Aspirational” pokes fun of Selfie nation. The ladies filmed are more interested in the opportunity for increased likes and follows than actually conversing with Dunst.

Hello future of America where we don’t know how to hold a conversation with someone but can “like” and “follow” all day!

apollos-hester

This is what sports are all about. The spirit of every athlete lives in the speech he gave. Keep in mind this is a post game interview. The young man’s name is Apollos Hester. Come on read the name again. Dude just sounds like a winner. The reporter had no idea what was coming with this one. If you aren’t motivated to do something banging after watching this, just go to bed please!

secret-menus

It should not surprise you plenty of fast food restaurants have secret menus. They are comprised of unofficial and unadvertised selections the chains can make when ordered but not on the regular menu. Some of the secret items were created by the restaurant while others were customer based and spread word of mouth.

The days of searching around online for any post discussing secret menus are coming to an end.(That is what you were doing before you read this right?) Now there’s a website dedicated to these desirable dishes. The genius name of site is called Hack The Menu.

They’ve collected 15 menus so far, for places ranging from Jamba Juice to Sonic, and they’ve even put together a list of healthy secret menu options, in case you’re looking for some guilt free drive thru. Expect the list to keep growing more and more as people discover items to add on in the future. I love my sweets so any chain who will mix my strawberry shake with golden oreos is champion for me! What is your secret menu item?

 

roots-art-1

Painting pictures using the sky has never looked this fly. Artist Thomas Lamadieu aka Roots Art takes photos of buildings and cityscapes wherever he goes. The images he utilizes are directed skyward using a fisheye lens. The sky becomes the background highlighting various illustrations that utilize the sky’s original color.

Make sure to check his work on his official page.

bruce-levenson

How refreshing to look at today’s articles and see Atlanta Hawks owner, Bruce Levenson, release his racial realization. Bruce racially offensive comments were brought to life as he wondered ways to build ATL’s racial sports divide and increase fan attendance at Hawks’ games. I appreciate his honesty but am sad he has continued to live with this mentality in his position. Thus he is today’s Villain.

“In trying to address those issues, I wrote an e-mail two years ago that was inappropriate and offensive,” he said. “I trivialized our fans by making clichéd assumptions about their interests (i.e. hip hop vs. country, white vs. black cheerleaders, etc.) and by stereotyping their perceptions of one another (i.e. that white fans might be afraid of our black fans). By focusing on race, I also sent the unintentional and hurtful message that our white fans are more valuable than our black fans.”

“If you’re angry about what I wrote, you should be,” Levenson said in a statement released by the team. “I’m angry at myself, too. It was inflammatory nonsense. We all may have subtle biases and preconceptions when it comes to race, but my role as a leader is to challenge them, not to validate or accommodate those who might hold them.

“I have said repeatedly that the NBA should have zero tolerance for racism, and I strongly believe that to be true. That is why I voluntarily reported my inappropriate e-mail to the NBA.

I’m sure some folks will commend Mr.Levenson but all I can do is point out which rock you can go kick sir. He clearly didn’t want to be part of the organization moving forward.

manute-bol-son
Manute Bol was a Sudanese-born basketball player who grew to stand 7 ft 7. His son, Bol Bol, is 6’10 at 14 years of age and looks to be a future KD on steroids. The name fits cause Bol is Boooollllllllling(had to do it)!

Check out the video to see Bol in action. What you will see immediately is how he dominates the kids. I think it is great for them to see what the competition looks like as they get older. At some point and time however he will need to play with some older kids and get that reality check. If his future will be on the basketball court then he will have to play with the big boys soon. He’ll have some great stories to tell along the way. One battle that is going to come for sure will be the young attempting to posterize him every chance they get. That will either turn him into a warrior or a tall ass water boy.

No matter what though we know Bol is gonna ball!

imc 2 flyer-2

The idea of being a star in your city or state sounds good when you never left home in the first place. When you start to venture out from your comfort zone is when you will feel the most free. It doesn’t get any bigger than removing yourself from your country and head overseas. In the realm of music that is a goal most would like to see.

Well if you need to dust off the passport or apply for one there is something you can attend in the meanwhile. The International Music Conference is taking place starting Wednesday, September 10th. Here is your chance to network with industry professionals from across the world. Check the video to view last year’s highlights. You never know who you may meet by attending.

 

 

The conference takes place in Atlanta and if interested in going just contact me via email. I may have a ticket for any fan of the Something Banging Nation! Just hit my email and I’ll werk it out.

I spent this glorious morning with a bunch of strangers to discuss the talent of aspiring musicians.  The business I werk for is breathing new light into the music industry. Giving the artist feedback on records from the potential consumer’s point of view. The goalkeepers of the business. The ones who pay to watch and listen to you. I served as the moderator but enjoyed talking about records that could impact millions some day. Our marketing team werks on refining services like this.  Some may say that is a dream job but I say it was a great career choice. I was playing my position for a club I could join. Well I’m ready to lead the team. It was fantastic today just happened to be my born day. A day of reflection and rejoice. Very proud to have made it another year but even more excited about the opportunities that are ahead. I got a vision on how life should be and I want to project that in all my werk.

But first let me shake the machine…..
