Stray Notions – Ju (Ten)

WHO does it better?

WHAT is another word for synonym?

WHEN people go mental, why do they get physically violent?

WHERE is the Double XX Posse?

HOW does NEW slang get started?

WHY does Metta World Peace (Ron Artest) act like that?

DO robots dream of electric sheep?

IF horrific means to make horrible, does terrific mean to make terrible?

WONDER if Kim K, and Kanye really got somethin goin on?

A Tribe Called Quest Tribute feat. Sadat X, Charlie Brown, Dinco D, Dres, Buckshot

Buckshot, Sadat X, Charlie Brown, Dinco D and Dres got together with Revive Da Live Big Band to pay tribute to A Tribe Called Quest at Harlem Stage in New York. They performed some of Tribe’s classic cuts.
By the looks of things, it’s been a long time. Who ever thought Charlie Brown would be anything besides a beanpole? He could paraphrase Q-Tip’s line on Bonita Applebum: “I gained 20 pounds, 6 inches wider…”

Somebody Needs to Tell…Antonio Cromartie

GrownHeadz isn’t into stereotypes about athletes. Our publisher is a former football player and Resident Alien has a mean volleyball serve. But these last couple weeks, our professional brethren have been dumb-jocking it to an exceptional level. We love them, but today’s picks need an open-hand smack to the face and a good long talk on taking precautions. They’re not completely lost. Somebody just needs to tell ‘em.

Somebody needs to tell…
Antonio Cromartie about an awesome invention called condoms, so you don’t knock up every single footballer-balling groupie that sneaks into your hotel room.

If only Antonio ran the math: a $9 box of condoms (one for each kid) would’ve saved him $250,000 annually in child support.  
A quarter of 

a mill a year is fine (well, no, it REALLY isn’t) when you’re 26, but it’s not going to be pretty when you’re 40, retired, and all four of your current crop of 3-year-olds hit college.

Check out the clip of him struggling to get all their names right. He missed one altogether! Get it together and stop fucking up innocent kids’ lives.

Somebody Needs to Tell…

Ozzie Guillen that Miami doesn’t play by the rules (i.e. Constitution, Bill of Rights, Amendments, Free Speech, etc.) when it comes to Cuban Americans and Castro. They will set that ass on fire.

Ozzie Guillen pres conference
"Ooohhhh, shit."

The Miami Marlins manager told Time MAgazine, “I love Fidel Castro. A lot of people have wanted to kill Fidel Castro for the last 60 years, but that motherfucker is still here.”

Guillen caught himself and tried to dial it back from love to “respect,” but Miami wasn’t having it. He’s on a five-game suspension, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s beefed up his personal security either.

Only one thing can repair his career in Miami: starting every sentence from now on with “Fidel Castro is a son-of-a-bitch.”

Grownhead Check: 162 – 168

Periodically, we check credentials and weed out the spies, posers, and undercover gangsters  (reformed gangsters are fine) from our circle of mature hip hop aficionados. So, you truly are a grownhead IF….

162) … you can’t use the new slang.  It don’t just don’t sound right when it comes out your mouth.  

163) … kids have to tell YOU what the new slang is (just like you told YOUR parents back in the day). 

164) … it’s your 20th, repeat, 20th YEAR college reunion.  And seeing your old homies feels like some kind of hip hop Big Chill.

165) …you have zero plans to see the Jonah Hill remake, but you remember the chief on 21 Jump Street was a black guy (Steven Hill) and wonder why the big screen version has Mark Adams running things instead.  

166) … you worry about your credit score. 

167) … you remember slow-dancing to Tender Love, Adore, Out On A Limb, and All Cried Out.   

168) … you remember when MOST folks came to the CIAA tournament to actually see the games.

Hip Hop Affirmations – We’re All Self Conscious

We’re all self conscious
I’m just the first
to admit it” ~
All Falls DownKanye West

Affirmation of the Day:
 I openly confront the things that may stop me from being as great as I can be.

“I’m so dumb, ugly, fat, etc.” These are the kind of things that we are secretly worried about.  The kind of things that we work overtime on to cover-up.  We pray the outside world won’t know our little secret about how we truly feel about ourselves.  We can go around and help so many other people, but it can sometimes feel difficult to help ourselves.  Don’t get too down in the dumps.

Despite your self-doubt, you can still make great things happen.  A pretty cool methaphor I like to think about is being a wounded healer.  Sure we have baggage, but that does not mean we can’t still be helpful and have a hugh impact on this world.

Question of the Day:
What don’t you like about yourself?

Action of the Day:
Take your list of things you don’t like about yourself and next to each item write, “and I can still…”  Fill in with what you can still do.

Run the Point; from where you are with what you have!

Your Ambassador,

Mike Bruny

P.S.: Hurry up, the world is waiting on your greatness.
