Random Thoughts Friday

Here's some random stuff on my mind:

- My daughter did start school, like real school. Like a school where she doesn't call her teacher "mom". She actually started about a week or 2 into the school year. Actually there is alot happening on the baby daddy front but I don't want to blog about it till it's over. If you follow me on twitter you might have a idea.

- I've been crazy busy at work. Like 7 hours a day busy. It's both good and bad at the same time. I usually have alot of down time but that leads me to be lazy. When I'm busy I'm more focused and get more done. It carries over to my home life too. Long story short I've been busy.

- I started to eat better like 2 months ago or so. I just decided one day to stop eating junk and drink more water. I'm up to 2-3 liters a day now with no problem. I actually don't miss the sweets and fried food anymore. I killed my sweet tooth. Plus I started working out on a consistent basis. Combine all that and i've lost around 15lbs. I'ma be sexy soon... lol

- Now that I'm single I'm sure your thinking I'm going to resume my career as a professional dater. Truth is I'm not really interested in meeting anyone. The whole interview date process just doesn't sound fun anymore. This is odd because that used to be my favorite part. It dawned on me that I've been in a relationship pretty much all year. I need to focus on good ole Dave for a minute. I think I'ma take the last quarter of '09 off, I have plenty of other things that need my attention more then dating.

- I don't know if ya'll remember but I'm in my homeowners association. Went to a meeting and found out we have a GANG in our neighborhood. Dumb kids even put up video of them committing crimes on youtube (it since has been removed, or I would post it.. lol) I swear suburban gangsters the worst. If my house was worth anything I would sell it and move. Unfortunately I also learned that way to many people in my hood have been foreclosed on so our home values have dropped.

On yeah.. speaking of dating and dumb, this video is the greatest thing I saw this week

The Breakup

I've written this post a couple different ways in my head.

At first I was going to a in depth post about how I was feeling. Make it all thought provoking and everything. I decided that I'll just keep those thoughts to myself.

Then I was going to just put a line at the end of some random post but I remembered how that didn't work at all last time.

I even joked with the idea of writing about it and having Kanye interrupting me to say Nas and Kelis had the best break up of ALL TIME!! lol

In the end I'll keep it simple. We broke up, it needed to happen and were still friends.

Man On the Moon.. Album Review

So I just finished listening to this Kid Cudi album. First let me say I never really felt dude. Something about his voice throws me off. I didn't pay much attention to it till now, i just knew that "Day and Night" song was hot because of the hook and not because of his verses. "Make her say" was hot because it had Common and Kanye on it.

Since dude is one of the new crop of artists I gave the album a chance. 3 songs in I realized why I wasn't feeling him. Dude doesn't RAP!! he kinda sings but not even that. It's like he's talking to the beat.. lol I can't explain it but it sucks. I listened to most the album and didn't hear 1 real rap verse. I could understand this if he produced the tracks. He raps like he wants the music to shine more then his words.

Now I don't have a problem with rappers singing. I remember when Cee-Lo dropped "Cee-lo Green and his perfect imperfections" I was blasting it for like 2 months straight. When Andre 3k put out "The love below" it was great, as was Phonte from big brother doing his foreign exchange thing. Hell even Kanye's 808's album was good. Heres the thing though all them dudes are good too great RAPPERS and they still rapped on those albums. Hell even Drake showed he can actually rap. Even if he wants to do duets with Trey Songz I can listen to his mixtapes and get some actual rap verses.

Maybe I'm old school but I still expect my rappers to show that they can actually RAP.
