Don't Jealous Me

My friend Azza put me on "Don't Jealous Me" video blog. I don't know the nationality of this guy but he sounds Nigerian with a slight British accent (ETA-He is Yoruba). I find his videos hilarious. His choice of words and mannerisms remind me of some of my cousins and uncles. I think he is like up to part 10. Check out this video blog on beatings. I can so relate to this post. lol.

Check out Part Letter 10 (Ladies). That one is hilarious as well.

Slapping God in the Face

I'm cool with my ex-girlfriends (except for one) mainly because we didn't end our relationships on a sour note. My first ex-girlfriend texted me yesterday and our convo went something like this:

Lakwisha: Thinkn of u. Hope all is well.
Me: Hey Lakwisha. Good to hear from you. Everything is cool. How are you?
Lakwisha: Good. Had surgery so I've had time 2 reach out and catch with old friends.
Me: Surgery? Wow. For What?
Lakwisha: Got the twins removed :) Much needed reduction.

For some reason when I read this text all I could think of was a scene of Superbad when Seth and Evan were talking about Keri Hutchins as she was walking her dog down the street.

Evan: I heard she got breast reduction surgery.
Seth: What? That's like slapping God across the face for giving you a beautiful gift.
Evan: She had back problems, man.

This movie is hilarious. Seth is funny because he gets so mad and he is really crass. Evan has a calm, subtle funny side to him.

Anyway back to my ex-girlfriend. I'm glad she got the surgery because I know she's been having back problems for a while.

Lately I haven't been remembering my dreams. Last night I had a dream that I was running somewhere and somehow I fell and hit my mouth on the ground. I ended up breaking three of my bottom teeth in the front. If this happened in real life, I would be devastated. I've always been told that I have a really nice smile and I happen to like my teeth. I always thought that dreaming about your teeth signified vanity. So I looked up teeth in my dream book and this is what it said:


Teeth-Normally an unfavorable sign in a dream. It signifies displeasure and also shows that you are afraid of losing someone dear to you.


I wonder who I am afraid of losing. Maybe I'm afraid of losing one of my parents. A good friend of mine lost his dad earlier this week and it made me remember that my parents are not going to live forever but I still am not ready for them to go.

Alternative Hip Hop

Even though I listen to a lot of rap that might make most want to slit their wrists with a fork not want to listen to the radio anymore. i.e.-Souljah Boy, Gucci Mane and OJ Da Juiceman. I do listen to a lot of Alternative hip hop. Some of my favorites are the Cool Kids, Wale, Gym Class Heroes, Skyzoo, Kid Cudi and Drake (just got put on to him). One of my favorite rap groups is Kidz in the Hall. Their last studio album, The In Crowd, was a banger. My favorite track on that CD is Let Your Hair Down. I need School Was My Hustle immediately. So anyone who has it please contact me.

*Shout out to Reecie for putting me on this video today*

March Madness

I hope everyone has filled out their brackets by now. The NCAA tournament kicks off tomorrow. Even Obama has filled out his bracket. Shout out to ESPN for Barack-Etology.

We have 3 of the same 4 to make it to the Final Four. I just don't have faith in UNC with a hurt Ty Lawson. My Final Four teams are Louisville, Memphis, Pittsburgh and Oklahoma. I have Memphis beating Pittsburgh for the championship.

I am upset that a couple of stars teams didn't make it into the tournament. I really wanted to see what Stephen Curry (Davidson) and Patrick Mills (Saint Mary's) would have done against the power houses. Instead I get to see mediocre teams like Arizona and Michigan. I guess I will have to see them play each other in the next round of the NIT.
I hope you guys get some work done tomorrow because I know I won't. lol.

The Summer of Tunde

For the past couple of days the temperature has been in the mid 60's to low 70's. I'm loving this weather right now. Its a drastic change from last week when the temps were in the 40's and it rained the whole damn week. I'm really ready for summer to get here. One, my heating bill will be back to a reasonable price and also I just love the spring/summer season (despite my new found allergies since I've moved to TN).

This summer I want do to a lot of different things hopefully since it will be my last summer in Nashville. I want to go to Essence festival in New Orleans, a cruise to somewhere, home (DC), L.A. and someone's beach. Like George Costanza said, "I'm proclaiming this the summer of Tunde!"

Watch the temperatures do some dumb shit and drop back to the 40's next week. o_O

Random Thoughts

I'm drinking this Coke. Pepsi tastes so much better than Coke. I need to stop drinking carbonated drinks and start drinking more juice. I bought some Simply Lemonade the other day. Lemonade tastes great with vodka. My favorite vodka is Stolichnaya. Blame it on the alcohol. I like Jamie Foxx's cd. Speaking of cd's I need to go to Target to buy some more blank cd's. I always spend more and buy more than I need to when I go to Target. I need to stop unnecessary spending and save more money. Speaking of money. I like The-Dream's cd Love vs. Money. I wonder which one would win in my world.
What are your random thoughts?

Bad Weaves

*This post is not meant to offend anyone*

I don't like bad hair weaves. Matter of fact I'd rather a woman not wear a weave and rock whatever she has (if she looks good then she's gonna look good regardless). But by no means do I share the opinions of dude in the video below. I don't have a problem with weaves when they are done right. Actually I think its cool that black women can switch it up sometimes. On the flip side if I see you in the streets then I shouldn't be able to tell that you have a weave. I shouldn't be able to see track lines. Your weave should be comparable to your actual hair color/texture.

So this is my PSA for the day. Women (white women you are not excluded, i.e-Britney Spears) if you are going to get a weave, please don't cut corners or try to be cost effective and end up getting a bad weave. Its just not a good look.

Light vs. Dark Skin

I was having a conversation the other day with one of my female friends (who is dark skinned)about how all the guys she dates or is attracted to are light skinned. Now I don't really know if this is the case but it does seem like with her there is a heavy preference towards light skinned men. I don't think there is anything wrong with that. We all have our preferences. Some people like tall people, or people under a certain weight. I'm not any different. My issue is with people who subconsciously think that people of a certain hue might be better than people of another complexion.

I've dated women all across the color spectrum. I believe in the blacker the berry the sweeter the juice, but I also have love for the light skinned sisters. Being a darker skinned brother and a 1st generation Nigerian, I heard all the black and African jokes growing up. As I grew older I learned to love my complexion as well as my "African" features. What is it that makes us want to identify with Caucasian features? What makes us think that straight, silky hair (Caucasian feature) is "pretty" hair while kinky, curly hair (African feature) is bad hair? Is it subconscious self hatred?
Dimwitted people like Young Berg are given public forums to spew all types of hatred. This is a quote from the plastic selling artist himself.

“I’m kinda racist…I don’t like dark butts…You know how some women prefer
light skin men or dark skin men...It’s rare that I do dark butts – that’s what I
call dark skinned women…I [don’t date women] darker than me."
Things just got “better” from there as he went on to say, “I love the pool test. If you can jump in the pool exactly like you are and you don’t come out looking better than you looked before going in the pool – then that’s not a good look. Any woman that
uses brown gel to set down her baby hair is not poppin.”

"A topic that is very dear to me and strikes me is African-Americans not
embracing their self as a whole. Ever since the early days of slavery, many
people have felt that their skin color is ugly. Time after time after time,
white people perception of superiority and desecration of the Africans skin
color has made for people to dismiss themselves as beautiful. When something is
black, it is dirty and has negative connotation and for white people to call us
that over four centuries, we start to believe it."

Movie Review (II)

Yesterday I decided to take in another 2-4-1 at my local cinema. The movies I decided to see were Underworld: Rise of the Lycans and He's Just Not That Into You (HJNTIY).

I thought both movies were pretty good. I liked both of them for different reasons. Underworld was a really good prequel that answered a lot of questions I had after watching the first two movies. First I thought HJNTIY was more of a chick flick but it got a lot better as the movie went on (still mostly a chick flick though). As a man it also caused me to reflect on current and past relationships that I've had with women at different points in my life.


The fight scenes in this movie were really good and I found myself rooting for the Lycans. Even though in the first two I rooted more for the Vampires. Both Viktor and Lucian were those dudes in this movie. Overall I give this movie a solid B.

He's Just Not That Into You

This movie had some big names in it. Ben Affleck, Jennifer Anniston, Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Connolly, Scarlett Johansson. I think they all worked really well together. Sometimes when you have movies with lots of stars egos get in the way and it can ruin a movie. Anyway. The main advice given throughout the movie is: "If a guy wants you he will let you know." Sounds real simple but it can become complicated because women make it complicated. Anyway. Overall I give this movie a B+.
