What I've Learned This Week: Just Keeping On Going
Daily Regiment My assistant got me a leather Louis Vuitton daily planner for my birthday. I've come up with a strategy to make my life more like sports. At the end of each day, some up what was actually accomplished and mark it in the planner as a "win" or a "loss". It a depends on how productive I was that day. From Jan 1 to Jan 6, my record is 2 wins and 4 losses. Will keep you posted as the year goes on.
Movies There Will Be Blood, The Great Debaters
Both movies were great in their own way. Denzel and Daniel Day are two of the greatest actors today.
"Bastard in a basket! Bastard in a basket!" (TWBB) and "Do what you have to do to do what you want to do" (TGD) are my favorite quotes from There Will Be Blood and The Great Debaters, respectively.
Blackberry Believe it or not, the cab dispatcher calls me on Saturday to announce they "found" my blackberry. It's bittersweet, seeing I already shelled $345 out on a new one. I'll just pick it up and keep the extra as a back-up right? No. Not that easy.
First the cabbie brings it back, only to take it back with him again. They'll let me know when he re-drops it off. Why the hell didn't you make him leave the phone?!?!?! He's the one who stole it in the first place!
Sunday hits and still no blackberry. I decdided to just pop up down there on Smith Street to see what's happening. The guy (different from Saturday) looks through the drawer and can't find it. He calls his boss (aka his mom) and she tells him it's there. Now my blackberry is lost again.
It's like having a kid go missing. You search for a while, then declare her dead after sometime. All of a sudden the cops tell you they found her. But when you get down to the precinct, they don't know where she went. Just fucked up.
Called at 2:20pm today. They told me to call after 4:30pm and speak to Mrs Black (aka Mom) about it. It's just retarded. I'll call back then and keep you posted.

What are you 2 playing give-n-go with second place? Ralph's been right all season, I did get bored...I'm ahead by too much. I'll start helping you brother's out
-Sell high on Sebastian before you bleed money on him like Moon -u could get both Charlotte wingmen for the overvalued Dwight Howard -You'll never catch up until you guys get ur worth up. Stop holding onto these guys for so long -Craig Smith, Yi + CJ Miles suck

Cigars I went to 2 Cigar bars last week. Circa Tabac and Velvet. Needless to say my Camacho Triple Maduro fixes will be taken care of in these spots.
Myspace I tried to check and answer back (when warrented) every myspace message received in 2008. I got through about 80%. The issue becomes follow up. There's never a end to the messsages people send you. "Just liste to my page...5 minutes". That turns into "I got 2 more songs and "What can I do next" then a sob story etc. The5 mins turned into an hour. But I've also linked with some good people. So it's worth it.
Politics Wasn't big on politics until Obama won in Iowa. Now I'm watching every debate, reading every article and researching every issue. Tarik told me about it a while ago, and I even read half of Audacity Of Hope on a plane, but that's not what swung me around.
