Passing Notes

Welcome to 2010! Happy New Year to all of you.

This year I decided not to come up with any resolutions. Don't want to end the year looking back at things I didn't accomplish. Instead, I've made to list of things to do each month. One list of things I need to accomplish and the other list is of things I want to get done. Each month I will pick a couple of items from the lists to perform. At the end of the year even though I may have not accomplished everything on the lists, I will have gotten some things done. Still working on my vision board too.

Over the holidays, I saw several pretty good movies. Everything from Avatar to It's Complicated; both of which I would recommend. However, the best movie I saw was one that I had missed at the theatre so I had to check it out when I saw it was available On Demand. That movie was 500 Days of Summer. I love the unique way the story was told and how everything gets tied together in the end. If you get a chance, check it out.

In basketball news: Gilbert Arenas has lost his damn mind. I've heard some interesting stories about this guy off the court but to find out that he was keeping guns in his locker and actually pulled out on a teammate is the wildest. I don't really blame the other cat because if I'm a bench warmer and dude with a $100 million contract is trippin off paying me the $60,000 he owes me, I might point a gun at his ass too.

I can't wait to see LeBron and the Cavs fall on their faces when the playoffs get here. Yes, I am not a witness. Boston is still my favorite to win it all this year. They just need to be healthy when the playoffs come around. Kobe continues to solidify my belief that he is the best player in the game today. With broken fingers on his shooting hand, he is still getting buckets and crushing fools hoop dreams on a nightly basis. Long live the Mamba!

NFL playoffs are here so that is exciting. The league has always wanted parady amongst the teams so that fans in multiple cities could feel as if their squad had a chance to hoist up the Vince Lombardi trophy in February. They definitely have that now. Your guess is as good as mine about who will win the NFC. I'm an Eagles fan though so I'll be pulling for them to get Donovan his ring. AFC is up in the air too. The Chargers are my pick to take it but they will have to go on the road to get it done. I'm ready for some playoff football!

If you haven't heard that Exhibit C by Jay Electronica, please go out and get that now. Dude is bringing real hip hop back. I said Kanye West was my choice for producer of the last decade but Just Blaze might be the one holding the belt when its all said and done.

I want to cut back on the amount of television I watch and start back to reading more. The crazy mess that is on network and cable television right now is making the less tv part easy. However, I need some suggestions for good books out there that I need to check out. Help a brother out!

YES!!! A new blog post... I'm glad to see you posting again :) Oh and It's Complicated was hilarious. I still need to see 500 Days of Summer though. Keep writing so I can keep reading!

Glad to have a new post from you! It's been forever! Are you and CL still together? (Or is that being too nosy?). As far as books, check out the 2 by Blair Underwood. He hooked up with a husband and wife writing team and they wrote 2 great books. They were great reads!

@Amy - I'm just happy that people are still checking for my blog. It has been a minute since i wrote anything. It's Complicated was very funny. Alec Baldwin stole the movie to me. You will enjoy 500 Days of Summer too.

@Andrea - Yes, it's been too long. Yes, CL and I are still very happy and going strong. I've read the first book by Blair Underwood. I need to check out the second one. As far as the husband and wife tandem go, I love each of their works too.
