Driveby Post #4

It's official: "The Lebrons" (as ESPN likes to call them) are in the playoffs for the first time in almost 10 years following a quality win against a quality team (Dallas).
Do your thing young man.

In case you've been living under a rock for the past couple of days, here's just another great reason to hate Duke.

A quality post-Oscar Three 6 Interview over at with such amazing moments as this: All right, what was going through your mind when they called your name at the Academy Awards?
Juicy J: Man, 'just run, run Forest, run.'

And finally, not soon enough after the release of Biggie's last and most forgettable "album" (the duets shit), Biggie's family is gettin some mo money.

Oh, and did I mention that there's some tight shit going down on Wednesdays in Cleveland Heights? "The Good Life" with your dudes Ben, Mike, and Doan, playing everything from TI to Rancid. There are drink specials, a Connect 4, broken bowling video game, and some good folks. It all goes down at the B-Side Liquour Lounge, located under the Grog Shop on Coventry. 10pm.

Music + Sports =

Heard this T.O. rap this morning (his poor-man's "dis" against the eagles). It's so bad, I almost expected his verse to start out "My name is Terrel and I'm here to say ... " But no, he's just sounding like Geezy ("I'm baaaaaa~ck") Anyway, it's on the home page of "his" website. Enjoy a good laugh. Him and Duane Clemons need to do a video together. Terrible. T.O. is also "writing" a book. How long do you give Parcells before he stabs him?

In other shitty music/sports news, I heard this morning that Carlos Boozer is suing Prince for damages to his home. He was renting his house to Prince for like 30k a month. Apparently (if this is true ... and I hope to god it is), Prince painted the house with purple stripes, painted logos for his new album, installed purple carpet, and ran plumbing to the basement for a "makeup room" ... please, please be true.

Also, heard Three-Six is getting a little out of hand with the Oscar win. And by "out of hand" I mean "hilarious" ... they now carry the trophy with them to clubs and if they need to get into a club they just pull the little guy out. I mean congratulations and all, gentlemen, but let's go back and look at the competition here .. Dolly Parton. 3-6 over DP? That's a lock.

"let a dog roam and he'll find his way home."

LeCharles Bentley, Cleveland Brown.

Browns have started off free agency big by signing one of the best offensive linemen in the game. Im pretty excited about this acquisition seeing how the Browns offensive line is, how do you say, terrible, and since theyre one of a handfull of teams who actually have money to spend, Im curious to see who else theyre going to sign.
Did I mention that Mike and I used to eat lunch with this dude in high school? Obviously that will result in us being new members of his entourage and new beamers for the both of us.

Peep the article here.

(what im sure will be one of many posts about) Three Six winning an Oscar. *updated*

So if you watched the Oscars you saw what I would consider one of, if not the greatest television moment I've seen in my 25 years. In case you missed it, here's what it was like for/from me.
Three Six performs, which is sort of odd already because its fucking Triple Six performing on the Academy Awards (Juicey J was wearing yet another amazing skull tshirt). So they finish, and im just like "ok, cool" and then Queen Latifah comes out, comments a little about their performance and reads off the nominees for original song. And I had a weird feeling about it, mainly because there were only 3 nominess and frankly, "Hard Out Here For A Pimp" or whatever it was called was honestly the only one im sure anybody could identify out of a lineup...and then Latifah opens up the envelope, and they fucking win. And then the camera cuts over and you saw 4 (i honestly dont know who the fat dude in gray was) of the happiest dudes youve ever seen in your life. Jumping up and down, chains flying, towels waving, and they all dash towards Queen Latifah only to realize that they were supposed to accept the award at the other microphone for some reason. So they have to move this contained ball of joy (you know when people get into fights in cartoons or in comic strips? like when Sarge beats up Beetle in "Beetle Bailey" and its just a cloud with arms, legs and shit sticking out? Thats what it was) moves across the stage to the other mic, and then they just start naming off people left and right. DJ Paul's Southern drawl was amazingly times 10 at that point and you could hardly understand anything he was saying. At one point I heard Juicey J say "JESUS" and then Paul, obviously at a loss for words, searches the crowd and points at George Clooney, and says something like "Thanks to George Clooney for being cool when we met the other night."
And I think Jon Stewart summed it up best when he said that they were the most excited dudes of the night, and it showed, and honestly, it was endearing, because you could see genuine excitement coming out of those dudes in what was possibly the defining moment of their long careers.
And yes, in case you were wondering, Crunchy Blacc was there.
Who run it...who run it indeed.

Ok upon rewatching it I realized that I embellished a little bit but its still amazing. Watch that shit.
