Family, Alzheimer's, school

“8711” My First Documentary

Of course being a student we are given various projects. For my final Video project I chose to take time to visit with my family, and check up on my mom. She was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s about 3 years ago, my oldest son now helps to care for her. Check out my documentary.

I may not have the shooting down pat, but I really enjoy editing.

The True King…

2-Pac Shakur was a lyricist beyond his time. Biggie Smalls had the type of understanding of music that allowed him to capture everyone. NAS spoke consciousness, never forgets where he comes from. Busta Rhymes is the most overlooked artist ( in my opinion). Jay-Z, what can’t be said about this mogul?  From hustler to millionaire according to Forbes, he is just 10 million dollars behind Sean “Puffy” Combs. So I decided to let you decide my peeps, who is the true king? In a discussion I once overheard someone state, that the only reason Jay-Z is a factor is because Biggie was gone.

Well let’s talk about 2-Pac. This young man had one of the most uncommon but common upbringings. Still he is looked at as the ’90’s revolutionists. His lyrics not only defined him but generation. Nas was one of the artist I personally only listened to when he was on the radio. That doesn’t mean that I missed the message, just didn’t feel like going to the mailbox at the time. Needless to say, he still made the list. Between his collaboration with Ms. Lauryn Hill and his messages to our young kings and queens, I know he is list worthy.

Then we have Busta Rhymes, this individual has been in the game since the late ’80’s. From Leaders of the New School to Flip Mode Squad Busta has been the leader of changing the game. Busta Rhymes is always the fore runner of fashion, and when it comes to spitting them bars, there are few who can contend. So that’s my input on this little test, now it’s your turn let’s see who the people truly crown King of Hip Hop

It’s up to you now, let the people decide.  whoever gets the most votes will be crowned ” The True King of Lyrics” . I am really anxious to see how this will play out, come on people unlike last election, your voice really does count. Let me know who will be the King.

It’s Finally Time

That’s right folks!! Football Season is just around the corner. One of the most satisfying parts of the 4th of July, is knowing that when you flip your calendar to the next page… there are actual NFL games scheduled for at least the next 21 weeks ( if you count the preseason) This is a beautiful thing.

What is it about this sport? 

What is it about this sport? Is it the anticipation of wondering how the team will approach the next down? Will the  refs actually call the game as everyone else saw it? What rules are gonna make it more soft?

With quarterbacks not being held responsible for the actions of their team. Knowing the coaches playbooks so well, we can almost call better plays from our couch. As far as the refs go, i guess having a centralized replay division can be helpful. Only if, of course they have the authority to call down to the field if something was missed. The rule changes are a little playground like. I mean, the first three rules listed are the reason most of us watch the sport. Leaping: first they called it if you landed on or touched someone else. Fine. Now, you want to call unsportsmanlike  conduct, REALLY!!!? Do you have any idea, how hard these men have trained?

All I have to wonder is, what will NFL stand for this season? National Football League or the No Fun League as once stated. Either way I along with many will be ready and eager for the first snap of preseason. Cheering on our favorites and keeping a watchful eye on the standings. Focusing more on the upcoming Playoffs than Thanksgiving dinner, because that is what football does to true fans.  We are there like the Dawg Pound in Cleveland last season ( 1-15).  On Christmas Day with not a win on their side they showed up and supported the home team, and was rewarded with a win. That’s the beauty of this sport,like any other it brings people together for a common cause. Let’s Go Team!!! Preseason kicks off Thursday August 10,2017 and the official begins Thursday Septmber 7,2017 @ 8:30 pm.
