Pretty dope. …although I couldn’t listen to much more than this one video without gettin sick of the violin. Homeboy is definitely talented though. Looks like he’s got a new site and album coming too. CLICK
I’ve had a note on my desktop for about two months now about this movie…so I’m deleting that note and finally posting this up. I wanted to post about this film because I don’t think many people even knew that it came out. This is a cool flick that is about some crazy events that land an ‘innocent’ dude in prison and how once things go wrong, they just snowball. This is actually kinda scary to watch, if you consider that some of the events could actually happen in real life… Anyway, this is a great chance to see Val Kilmer in a different sort of roll, and he does a really good job.
Stephen Dorff is also very good in this and I can definitely recommend this for a ‘Blockbuster’ night. As usual, I’m not saying this is some life-changing, grammy-type shit, but it’s worth the watch. And being a relatively small-time release (by today’s standards), this was a great surprise. Some brutal action scenes and the flow of the flick is pretty on point as well.
Also, that dude in the wheelchair (the narrator) from the HBO series ‘Oz’ is in this. Only in this, he’s the prison guard that is nuts…pitting inmates against each other and worse. He does an excellent job of making the viewer hate him…hehehe.
Vincent Ford, the songwriter credited with composing the Bob Marley reggae classic No Woman, No Cry has died in Jamaica. He was 68.
Ford lost both his legs to diabetes and died in hospital from complications caused by the disease, said a spokesman for the Bob Marley Foundation.
His smash hit appeared on Marley’s 1974 Natty Dread album.
It was inspired by the Trench Town ghetto in Kingston where both men lived in the 1960s.
Some claim Marley wrote it himself but gave Ford the credit to help his friend support himself with the royalties.
Ford is also credited with three songs on Marley’s 1976 album Rastaman Vibration.
Marley remains the most widely known and revered performer of reggae music, and is credited for helping spread Jamaican music to the worldwide audience.
He died of cancer in Miami in 1981, aged 36. *source: BBC News
I gotta say, that if Bob did write that jam and still credited his buddy with it, that’s a pretty damn nice thing to do. Hooking him up with royalties for the rest of his life. If not, it’s too bad that the rumor got started and continues. Guess we’ll never really know.
This is pretty neato. Surprising how different it looks during the different seasons. Well…welcome to 2009 everybody.
Heheheh….nice. I’ma be away for a few days, and so this is my Christmas post for the 2008 holiday. This awesome pictorial explanation for the North Star and the Three Wise Men story is just plain nice. I hope this helps some of you answer a question or two that you’ve had regarding this.
Peace in your crease,
Hehehe…dude is crazy with the nunchucks. We need to get him out to open champagne on New Year’s….hehehe.
This is kinda funny. These dudes were so pissed about the crap that O-reilly spews that they made a track and video just to diss him. I’m definitely against the hate-inciting tactics that many talk show hosts seem to get off on. It’s sad that these hosts use such insane propagandizing to get ratings, and that people continue to support them. I guess if you’re dumb enough to tune in, then it’s on you though. I’m smart enough to stay clear of it. Hehehe…check out the reaction video below from Keith Olbermann on “Countdown”. Way to take the high road Keith….hehehe.
