The Martin Luther King Estate Battle in 5 Lessons

Jordan Sneakers, Artwork by Zimmerman, Materialism, and Other Questions Answered

I can’t help myself. Diggame keeps asking these intriguing questions. Within myself, I have to give these insightful and intriguing answers. I could be writing about other things. However, why not take a turn on some inquisitions that makes us think about popular culture, intelligence, society, and life as a whole?

    That Shameful Moment When The Hood Shows No Love (RIP to Doe B)

That Shameful Moment When The Hood Shows No Love (RIP to Doe B)

From my experiences, Montgomery, Alabama has been one of the most self-appreciative cities I have known. To put it bluntly, Montgomery loves Montgomery. From their witty southern vernacular to their popular local hang-outs, “The Gump” always seemed like a world within itself. Montgomery isn’t just a college town; it is a town filled with […]

52 Book Project Pt. 1: Blockbusters by Anita Elberse

As I begin this 52 book journey, I knew I had to start off with something interesting. So, picking up the book Blockbusters was a win/win. For one, I would be reading something informational about entertainment. Another reason is that I would get an informed opinion about business decisions I didn’t always necessarily agree […]

Take the Time to Realize You Love Someone – Plain Truth 98

 

Sometimes, there are situations where your significant other seems to be “trippin’ out”. Maybe they aren’t acknowledging the obvious. Or, maybe you aren’t realizing the truth of the situation. No matter the situation, this Prince Markie Dee song makes sense. In retrospect, people have to figure out what their present situation holds.   […]

MTV Video Music Awards – Fun, Flash, and Fuckery

I don’t know why I do this to myself. Wait, I lied: I do it for you all. I do it for the “fans” that I imagine I have. I also do it for the sake of doing it. This pays no money. Most people don’t pay me any mind. But for those that […]
