"you've got the whitest shoelaces"

"The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao", is perhaps one of my favorite books of this past year. I can't get enough of it. I'm almost done with the book and I'm pretty bummed cause there is not more. His work touches on many things including Dominican Republic,Sci-Fi, Ethnic girls, being a dork, dating ethnic girls...

In this video, he's speaking at Google HQ, which I guess they get to watch on their lunch breaks or something. I need something like in my life. He's really funny and cussing and alot, which reminds me of my dad's style of teaching.

Check his shit out

Rap Videos

Not to talk to too much shit but I've always had my doubts about Jay-Z. Of course I loved the Black Album but some of his earlier stuff is "whateves" for me. At any rate here's his new joint. I have to admit that

I'm at home sick today. Send me good tidings.
Assuming that someone reads this thing.

This is the Cool Kids

After apparently putting on one of the critically revered performances at the L.A. Detour Fest a couple of weeks. Plus there song Gold and Pager was of my my favorite song of this past year. I didn't get to see them because of other engagements and steep ticket prices. At any rate I hope they come back to L.A. soon....

The Shock Doctrine

I read Naomi Klien's No Logo four years ago. It was one of the deciding factors into incorporate Sociology into my major. Her new book looks awesome. She does a really good job try to capture an through voice of gobalization. Her new book is called The Shock Doctrine and the video below is directed by Alfonso CuarĂ³n.
