10 Good Things

1. July 4th is Friday and it is a short work week.
2. The National Black Arts Festival is this month.
3. If you live in Atlanta, Restaurant Week is this month too.
4. This video that takes me back to a good time in life:

5. These Common lyrics:
He stood on the corner with the rest of them
Though he knew that this corner wasn't the best of him
Hard streets and a life that crested him
Dirt police domestic beefs that's festerin
He knew the President wadn't addressin him
Though dead presidents was undressin him
Two kids from hot sex no protection and
People don't see how AIDS is affectin 'em
It get hard to get the get the God question in
Can't find a job so you robbin and hustlin
He killed marks and sold dope for cousin 'em
Can't believe they would be the ones bucking him
He on the ground he could feel God touching him
He heard the sound of his moms sayin trust in him
At heaven's gate, saying please Lord let me in
Or send me back to tell my people to be better men

6. I saw Wanted over the weekend and really enjoyed it.

7. Checking out my peoples, All-Mi-T's shop and getting a shoutout in his blog

8. The growing popularity of Urban Thought Collective

9. Even though I was skeptical at first, I'm really feeling Nas' The N*&^er Tape mixtape

10. Checking out one of my favorite old school movies:

Sharon - His name is Lawrence Hilton Jacobs. I think I have every scene in that movie memorized.

lovebabz - You have to let me know which events you'll be here for during the festival. Thanks for the PChats love.

T - Your spot was so nice that I just might get a dog one day.

Marvalus - I'm going to see Hancock but I'm skeptical about it. They are doing way too much advertising for me. You have a good one too.

Great lyrics from Rashid as always. I LOVE Cooley High to death. I STILL cry when Cochise dies. Have a wonderful holiday weekend.
