Version 2.0

Culture, healing, politics and bullshit - Not necessarily in that order

The general, socio-political and very personal rantings and ravings of a hip hop head from the hood hustling for change... Of himself.

You all know me and are aware that I am unable to remain silent. At times to be silent is to lie. For silence can be interpreted as acquiescence.
—Miguel de Unamuno

Okay, so I spent the weekend in Atlanta...

I broke in the new bucket by putting German Engineering to the test. It started like this...


I had to do something about that, so I did this...



Which ended up being like this...




and I got to see things like this...



and this...


and this...



hooked up with my brother from another mother and was shown this...



and the celebrity that comes with it...



I was so busy (driving and reading maps, shopping and meeting with friends) that I didn't get many pix in the ATL. I did meet and had a great time with a fellow scribe and one damn creative sista of a blogger blogger Nikki (narritives be off the chizzle)... but missed the pow wow over at Barley’s Billards on Peachtree Friday night and to think, I wasn't far from there at all, just arrived a day late.




I now know that I enjoy long drives alone. Not that I wouldn't have minded a travel partner or partners, but I was efficient in my handling of the trip. Met a ton of new friends and am in the process of establishing roots (businesswise) in the greater Atlanta metro area.

But I ended up like this (and that is a couple of hours ago - arriving back in the Chi running errands)




All in all, I really enjoyed myself. I'll probably get in depth about certan people, places and events throughout the week, but right now... I'm tired. And I gotta go to work.

Peace until the next ep.

Nah, you know what's nice... That cleavage shot.

Keep them coming, baby.

Oh and P.S.:

There can never be enough cleavage, so make more. The camera is your friend, never forget that.

Are you talking about the Beast side?
Or the little cleavage above?

To Hassan,



Hassan, I see you had an adventure on the road nice pictures also. And, thank you, for coming by my blog and letting me know that there are still places in America, in the 21st century that still give bad restaurant service to black people. Man you would think people would have caught up with the times and moved into the future with the rest of us. Glad you got a chance to go outside of CHI town and meet new people Hassan and you also met a fellow Blogger KOOL! You got to share the rest of your experience on the road with us like you said you would. I can’t wait to read the post on it. I will be checking back at your blog for updates Hassan. Also at my blog you will see the comment you left in the recent comments section and I left a semi long response to your comment. The response I left could have been a mini post itself. But what you said caused me to keep writing about what you told me you encountered at certain restaurants on the road BRUH! I will catch up with you later.


Peace,


Chance
