Nuvo-The Woman's Man Drink

It was sometime last year when I noticed it. It was at one of my favorite liquor stores Midtown Wine & Spirits here in Nashville. It seemed harmless enough. Being a vodka connoisseur I wasn't going to touch the stuff even though the cashier claimed it had vodka in it. I thought to myself "Self, that seems like it might be cool for the ladies. I mean its pink so who else could it be for?". Yep that's right I'm talking about Hypnotiq 2009 Nuvo.

I'm sure you've seen the pink bottle before. Like I said I heard it had some percentage vodka in it (can't be too high). Before long clubs where having Nuvo themed parties. And I thought to myself "Self, this could actually be cool. Get the ladies to come out the club. So it can't be that bad."

But that's when it happened. An out pour of men drinking this stuff like it was cool to be walking around drinking pink sparkling water. This movement was headlined by 'Mr. Blame It' himself

I don't care if you drink it straight out the bottle. Anytime I see a dude drinking Nuvo I think it looks real suspect. Yeah I said it. It feels good to get that off my chest (pause). I went to the Nuvo site and this is their description of the drink:

"...Nuvo's delicate fruity taste, distinctive pink colour and enchanting bottle...inspired by the fragrance industry..."

So this is what the likes of T-Pain, Trey Songz, Cam'Ron and what ever other rapper/singer choose to drink? I don't care if they might get paid to endorse it. Have some respect for yourself man. Call me old-fashion but I'll take regular 80 proof vodka any day, anytime. I'm good with my Stoli, Kettle One and Ciroc.

Thirsty Broads (parte dos)

I did a post about thirsty broads a couple of weeks ago. Click here if you missed it. This post is about a different type of thirsty broad. The type I just read about over at one of my favorite blogs, Single Black Male. Last night me and Kurt, Alex and Wayne went out last night to Atlantis Ultralounge (yeah right).

As we walked up I saw the line was kind of long and I don't really like waiting in line (or paying to get into clubs). So we walked up to the VIP line and the bouncer was being an asshole saying we couldn't even come through that line what a douche. The manager came right out and said that me and my friends didn't have to wait or pay. In the words of Tai Slumz: "because I got the juice".

When we go out we usually take turns buying rounds. Alex bought the first round of drinks so him and Kurt were by the bar. Wayne and I were standing near the dance floor. That's when I noticed her. This hood looking chick. I hate to judge people but I automatically associate baby phat jump suits with the hood. Anyway I see her across the room giving me bedroom eyes and I pretend not to see her. As she walks towards me I hope that she doesn't say anything to me. She walked past and I was feeling like I dodged a bullet. I wasn't so lucky on the passback. She kind of nudged me as she passed me and gave me a look that I can only describe with a picture.

Moments later Alex walks up with 4 vodka/cranberrys. I see ole' girl's eyes light up. She walked over to Alex and they start having a conversation. I can tell they were talking about me because they kept looking towards me. Alex then tells me to come over. The girl and I have a conversation that goes like this:

Baby Phat Diva: "So you gonna buy me AND my girls some drinks?"
Me: (as I immediately realize here breath smells like a used match) "Excuse me?"
BPD: "You got your friends, I got my friends. Maybe we can be friends."
Me: "I don't know them chicks."
BPD: "But we're thirsty and I thought we could all hang out."
Me: (clearly agitated) "I don't know them chicks."
BPD: "But you know me."
Me: "I don't know you and I don't know where you got that idea from."

Long story short I ended up seeing my homegirl and her friends. I bought their crew a round of drinks in front of the other chicks. That chick had the look of death in her eyes. I don't mind buying women drinks in the club. Its just a drink. What I don't like is for a chick to be extra thirsty asking for drinks in the club, especially when that's the first thing that comes out your mouth when you meet me.

Last night I had a dream that my brother Tai and I were coaching this little league basketball team. The boys on the team were really at youth risk that were bad as hell. The kids on the team were comparable to the kids in the movie Hardball.

In real life I don't like to see children that don't have manners and are all around bad. I just want to beat them. These kids in my dream were the worst. I was beating the hell out these kids in my dream during practice. The kids were like I'm going to tell my parents on you. My response, "Go right ahead and I'm gonna beat them for not beating you like they are supposed to". This dream was real random (as if my others aren't lol).


Trusty dream book:

Brother-To see your brother in your dream, may symbolize some aspect of your relationship with him. It can also serve to remind you that someone in your waking life has certain characteristics/behavior similar to your brother'

Coach- To see or dream you are a coach, indicates that you need to be more self-disciplined.

Children- To see children in your dream, signify an aspect of yourself and your childlike qualities. You may be retreating back to a childlike state where you are longing for the past and the chance to satisfy repressed desires and unfulfilled hopes.

Been Had Polo

I was first made aware of this video sometime last week on one of the blogs I follow, Averagebro.com (you should really check out the blogs in my blog roll to the right of the page. They are all hot and receive the Tunde stamp of coolness). I might have watched this video 5 times over the weekend and I discussed it with a couple of my friends. Overall the video is pretty niggerish but for some reason I find it hilarious.

The 2 highlights of the video to me were the sound effects and the co-signing ass camera man.

Honorable mention goes to:

"Buttersoft leather" & "Carlton Banks swag" & "Easter Polo" & "Ketchup like Mustard"

His Airmax 95's are kind of fresh though. Two problems I have with this video are 1. Can he have some type of variety in his wardrobe? and 2. I hope he has some type of endorsement contract with Ralph Lauren all the money he spent.

The dudes he dissed in the video did a response. Here is the link (not going to show the video because it wasn't as funny but he did have a gang of polo).

and before I go here is "I Been Had $100.00" What is the world coming to? *in my best Bernie Mac voice* You a nigger and I don't mean that in a good way.

If anyone needs to get jacked for their loot it should be this guy for taping such tomfoolery. o_O

Last night I had a really weird dream. I was getting dressed in the morning getting ready for school. As I leave my front door I lock my front door and I turn around and there is a moose standing in my front yard. In a panic I dropped my keys. I mean imagine this standing in your front yard staring directly at you:

The moose started chasing me around my front yard and somehow I managed to get up on my roof. The kicker is the moose started talking to me. He said he wasn't going to hurt me and it was safe to come down. I really don't remember anymore after that but I would imagine that I didn't listen to a talking moose.


My trusty dream book says this about moose:

Moose- Can represent runaway emotions that can trample over you.


Moose- To see a moose in your dream, represents long life and longevity. It may refer to the elders around you. Alternatively, a moose may also indicate that you can be both powerful and gentle.

My weekend

If you are cool with me or if you follow me on twitter (click the link to follow me) then you know this past weekend I went home to visit. The past couple of weekends I have visited Atlanta (Greek Picnic) and New Orleans (Essence). Both cities are great but nothing feels better than to come home and be with family and friends. I went home with my friends/classmates Kurt and Ashley.

I got home late on Thursday night because it took us a little longer to get there than we expected (giving Ashley the side eye). So our plans to hit Shadow Room on Thursday night were scratched.

Starting Friday off right with some breakfast

Friday was spent running around and spending time with my youngest brother and mother. Kurt, my brother Tai and I went to happy hour at the Park. Their happy hour was really cool. We also met up with my homegirls Madie and Rissa and my boys Dave and Travis.

Happy Hour at the Park

We left there and hit up Layla Lounge for their open bar from 10-11. When we got there (~10:15) the club hadn't even opened yet. o_O It was literally the people I came with and 4 other chicks. When the club opened they tried to charge us $20. Now I had no problem paying that but we were like dude we know who is in there. Its them (those chicks) and us. Dude literally told us "Its DC on a Friday night and its 10:30". My brother got me and him in for free and $40 for everyone else (because he has the juice lol). Of course once inside we hit the bar. The bartender really tried to convince me that Balinoff vodka was top shelf o_O. We had our share of drinks before we left to party at K street Lounge. We had fun while we were there. Partied hard. Got a chance to meet the other co-author of Eyespyz Blog. I'll spare you the details of the foolishness the ensued at McDonalds on Georgia Ave (before the night got started) and the McDonalds on Pennsylvania Ave (after the night wound down). Lets just say it included me trying to order a double whopper with cheese in the drive thru and me messing with Wanda because I couldn't get a courtesy water (alcohol is a helluva drug).

Saturday I spent the day recovering from a slight hangover. When I finally did get up I went to my neo's (Todd) mother's 60th birthday cookout. It was a really nice cookout. Lots of food and drinks. The best thing was the baked beans. I'm still thinking about them. lol. Saturday night we ended up going to Republic. It was alright but it looks a lot different from what I can remember. The lights were too dark. I really don't like when I can't see in a club. Makes it feel like a college party. I'll pass on that. I just really ended up chilling on the bottom floor by the bar most of the night.

Chillin by the bar at the Republic

Sunday (after I got the whip back from the impound lot. long story) I chilled out most of the day and me, Tai, Kurt and Rob (friend from Meharry) went to have lunch at Sequoia. It was my first time there. I thought the atmosphere was really nice but the food kind of left something to be desired.

The view from my seat at Sequoia

We ended up leaving there and partying at Stir Lounge. It wasn't that packed but I still had fun (sans the strippers putting a show in the middle of the dance floor and dudes making it rain lol).

All in all I had a great time while I was home but the stay was entirely too short. I need another trip home. lol. I really can't wait till I move back home. You know they say home is where the heart is. Thanks to all my friends to came out and spent time with the kid. Special shout out to my brother, Tai, for letting Kurt and I crash AND getting us into all those spots with no cover and no wait.

[recap]-Essence Festival

It's Monday afternoon and I'm back in Nashville. I'm still recovering from this past weekend. I didn't pull up to my house till after 2:30am and I was up by 8am. It was well worth it though. If I didn't get anything from this past weekend that I didn't get from before its New Orleans natives know how to party and drink.

We arrived in N.O. Thursday night, got our first (of many) daiquiris then changed for this party (that we never made it to). We ended up on Bourbon St. for about a hour before we got bored and went to party at Harrahs Casino. Harrahs went down but I had a feeling that my weekend was going to get better. We didn't make it to bed till after 6am.

Big Ass Bugs in New Orleans

Friday (after 4 hours of sleep) we wandered about aimlessly (after getting more daiquiris). We stopped so many places that I can't remember it all. Friday night we went to First Fridays. It was so many people. We had tickets but ended up going in through the side door because we didn't want to wait in line. So we sold some of the tickets that we didn't use. This First Friday's put every other First Fridays I've ever been to to shame. Such a nice collection of beautiful people. I ran into LaLa and I was thinking she is beautiful and she looks like LaLa. Only to find out it was. lol Her and Solange were hosting the party on the top floor. I also ran into some good friends that I hadn't seen in a minute. Its funny when you see random people you haven't seen in a while across the country. Friday night (well Saturday morning) I didn't get to bed till after 7am.

The Scene of Most of the Crimes

Saturday (after 4 hours of sleep again) we were back at it. Hit multiple cookouts, played spades, reminisced about Steve McNair and drank lots of good alcohol. I might have had 10 giant sized ribs, 3 burgers, 4-5 drumsticks of bbq chicken, authentic red beans and rice, baked beans, potato salad. I was stuffed. lol. Everyone's house we went to had a functional bar with a large variety of liquor. I loved it. After eating our fill we went and shot pool then hit up Harrahs again. We didn't walk into there till afer 2:30 and it was a stupid line to get in. It was crazy and people were drunk out their minds. Here is an example:

Drunken Girls

After Harrahs I had a "Dude Where's My Car?" moment. I lost the damn car and couldn't remember where I parked. I was so blown and so hot. Eventually (30 minutes later) I found it and we all headed to get some breakfast. Then we headed to bed. By the time we got to bed the sun was all the out (8:45am) and I knew there was no way we would be heading back to Nashville anytime soon. Needless to say we didn't hit the road till 7:30pm. Lol. I'll be doing it all again next year.

For now I need to detoxify my body and get ready for round 2 this weekend. DMV here I come. I hope y'all are ready!

Internet Loving

I follow Ludacris on Twitter. He has an album coming out later this summer with Shawnna called "Battle of the Sexes". For the past couple of months, Ludacris has been posing a Battle of the Sexes Question of the Day. Today's question is:
#BOTS: Who has had a sexual experience w/some1 off Twitter/FB that u ONLY knew from the sites? What was the experience? (RT)

At first I was thinking who in their right mind would do that in this day and age? It's too many crazy/weird people out in the world to be meeting people randomly off the internet. Then I got to thinking thats the way sites like eharmony.com & match.com stay in business. Then I thought with the way STDs are running rampant these days, surely these people aren't hooking up with people they met on the devil's playground internet. These are some of the responses I read:

RT @MellyMelsz: @ludajuice i HAVE too much respect for myself to just met someone off line.

RT @bigbaby1974: @ludajuice it was actually good sex but the nigga was just alot different than someone I would normally hook up with

RT @MzfuSHion: @ludajuice No Computer love for me!!! Viruses run through that shit too!!!! lol

RT @snowbae: @ludajuice well it wasnt twitter or fb, but it was urbanchat; and it was sex, i couldnt help myself

RT @GdaMonsta: @ludajuice got some Amazing head action from a Facebook freak, she added me on accident and I took advantage

RT @rholland26: @ludajuice I haven't met neone worth spreading my legs for from any site.

RT @therealestlove: @ludajuice never off twitter or fb but myspace. and it was a disappointment men lets just say talk is cheap

The responses I read varied but then it got me thinking about people that I know. I have one friend that has flown in at least 5 different women he met on facebook (that I know of) in town to spend the weekend with him. One occasion didn't end so well. The cops were called and she ended up staying at the homeless shelter till her flight came because she didn't have money for a hotel. All bad.

I don't think I could ever meet a women strictly off of a website and meet her with the intentions of just having sex with her. People lie on the internet all the time. Embellish things. Put up fake pictures. Maybe I'm old fashioned but I like to meet women in person and know what I'm getting (as far as physically) up front. It doesn't mean they are not crazy or they don't have something wrong with them, but you can pick up on things when meeting someone in person vs. meeting them on the internet.

Would you hook up with someone you met off of the internet?
