This past week has been interesting to say the least. I'll start off with the biggie that a lot of you have heard about anyways. That would be my computer. What's so newsworthy about that? Well, I'll tell ya. On Tuesday night I was doing my regular thing and spyware ate my computer up something awful. It would boot up fine, but I got a zillion new icons of ads, porn, and whatever else you can think of. Whenever I'd click on an icon, it wouldn't open and other things would pop up. I took it into the shop to get it fixed, got it back in a day, and it cost my only $60. I was literally getting sick to my stomach not having the computer for a few days. Yes, I admit I'm that addicted. My boy Spank was saying how it's like I'm a crackhead who lost his pipe except the computer is my crack. I recommend, and thanks to my boys for telling me this for a long time ago, don't use Internet Explorer. Download Mozilla Firefox for your browser and you'll be thanking me.
Interested in what the exact virus I had was? Thanks to Goathead, the man responsible for Lobstah (http://lobsterrodeo.com/balls/), he said it is the WMF Exploit. And here's a video of the virus going down. Mine had a lot of similar things as this video: http://www.websensesecuritylabs.com/images/alerts/wmf-movie.wmv.
Other than that I've just been chilling. The new Chinese place I finally tried in town and it's something else. I recommend the Honey Chicken and you get huge portions for dirt cheap. You can't beat having Chinese 1 minute away from your house. I know people in big areas don't think this is a big deal, but to people in my bum town, we're all excited.
It's that time again for the Lobstah Celebrity Deathpool. For those who don't know about this from last year, this one is sick and demented. What we do, at the end of each year, we all think of 10 celebrities we think will die in 2006. Yes, it's totally messed up, but admit it, you know it's interesting and would do it yourself. Thanks to the one and only Kasher for figuring this one out. It's a hit already amongst the #basketball crew. I didn't do so hot in the 2005 version, so I hope to come back with a vengeance this year. Want to know what 10 I selected? Here we go:
1. Ric Flair
2. Red Auerbach (former Celtics coach)
3. Michael Irvin (ESPN football analyst)
4. 50 Cent
5. Muhammad Ali
6. Tony Danza (totally random with this, I'll give it a try)
7. Mark Mangino (Kansas football coach who is a crazy fatty)
8. Rick Majerus (former Utah basketball coach)
9. Bill Clinton
10. David Letterman
New Year's party at Fortney's this year. I'm typing this up before I go, so maybe I'll be back with some stories during the next post. I'm not a party guy at all, but I haven't been to their house, and my crew is there, so it has to be a good time. Maybe Ozzie or Kari will provide some entertainment for us at the party, hah. Just picking on you two, you know I'm playing around. And I'll probably do my tradition and it'll be boring to everyone else, but not to me. Back in the day, we used to have a video game marathon for the holiday for a few days straight. We haven't done that in a few years, but the past 5 or 6 years probably I've been hitting up the BET celebration they have to gear us up for the excitement. Most of the big names in rap will be there putting on a live performance, so you can't go wrong.
Speaking of rap, yep, I loaded up again on CDs. Imagine that one. I got all of these on Friday night, so here's what we ended up with.
D4L: Down 4 Life. You all know the song Laffy Taffy by now. These guys are from Atlanta and do things their own way with some funky dancing and other things off the top of their head. Their latest song Betcha Can't Do It Like Me is pretty good too. No known guys on this one except for Too $hort.
Eminem: Curtain Call - The Hits - Deluxe Edition. The Deluxe has 2 CDs worth of action. Most of these we've all heard before, so this is basically a Best Of. Still nice to have them all on one or two CDs though, so I figured I'd get it. My favorite Em song ever isn't on this thing though, Marshall Mathers from the Marshall Mathers LP.
Lil Wayne: Tha Carter II. As you know, I'm a huge Lil Wayne fan. A whopping 22 tracks on this beast. He mostly does it by himself on this one, which I give him props for. You all know of Fireman and it's on this one. He kills it on this CD, go get it.
Snoop Dogg: Welcome To The Chuuch - Volume 9. There's a lot of Welcome To The Chuuch mixtapes of Snoop and this is one. He also has the actual album of it out too, but I haven't gotten that yet. Confused? Anyways, this is Snoop going harder like in the old days. Bring back the gangsta Snoop instead of singing Snoop.
T-Pain: Rappa Ternt Sanga. No clue what the title of this album means. The hit here is I'm Sprung and this cat is pretty good. A nice mix of R&B and rap. Mike Jones, Akon, Bone Crusher, Trick Daddy, and YoungBloodz on these tracks.
3 Quick Thangs:
1. On the guest commentary thing, I have Corndog and Wilbur wanting spots. Both should be entertaining if I can get them to commit. We'll work on that in the near future.
2. I'll start it out right. The birthdays of January 1st? We start things off gangsta with Grandmaster Flash turning 48. Morris Chestnut of Boyz N The Hood fame is 37. That's really about it. It's been very sad for birthdays the past few weeks, but nothing I can do about that. Mine is on Friday though.
3. This is the last Blog of 2005 for me. By the time most of you read this, it'll already be 2006. I appreciate the comments you guys leave, big ups there. Hopefully 2006 brings more of the same.
