The Year in Cool 2008

Yeah, yeah, I’m late with it. So what, monkeys? Chill out. It’s not as if you waited with bated breath on this specific post in this particular pocket of the the blogoshphere anyway.

So, 2008. What a year, right? False starts, R&Beef, hip-hoppers getting their asses kicked, oversensitive obese people, an overrated superhero movie — where to begin? What was worthy of being deemed Air Conditioning‘s Coolest of ’08? You’ll just have to click ahead to see, homie!

The Week in Cool 10.26.08

Yeah, I need to blog more. Trust, that will happen soon. But in the meantime, what did I deem worthy to post about this week?

Thanks to everyone who keeps coming by to check me out. And I’m surprised that “Harley Quinn” has suddenly become a major source of interest. Did I miss something? Help me out, people! Don’t forget, I’m also on the Twitter now! Tee hee!

Team Liquor Drunken Post 10.25.08

Okay, so since I’m sitting here at the bar at Buffalo Wild Wings, I figured I may as well write something I can post since I haven’t posted in a few days.

Currently gulping my third Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat. I’m not really a fan of Buffalo Wild since they have no real “bar vibe” to speak of. Hell, they ain’t even much of a sports bar and the food sucks bootie. But they put me on to the CW, they even dump real cherries into the glass to sweeten the deal. Didja get it? Did you see what I did there?

Is Chris Brown Really Dissing Ne-Yo?

*sigh*

Yes, I know this is mad late, but since sooooooooooo many of you demanded it, here’s the reply (?) from Chris Breezy to Mr. Matrix, and yes, it’s done over Weezy’s “A Milli.” Now, I don’t know if this actually qualifies as a diss or a response. It just is what it is. And to be fair, I like this better than Ne-Yo’s “freestyle” only because Young Brown switches it up a bit.

That should not suggest this is a stellar showcase of lyricism, however. Audio fecal matter after the jump! Continue reading

Is Ne-Yo Really Dissing Chris Brown?

Okay, now I’ve heard everything. I like the pop-&-B music of both young Chris Brown and Ne-Yo, so it’s difficult to really believe they are embroiled in some kind of beef. (I may be mistaken, but hasn’t Ne-Yo written songs — hit songs, at that — for Young Brown?) So imagine my surprise when I hear that Ne-Yo has crafted a diss record, supposedly leveling shots at CB.

R&B cats dissing each other via song, you say. Isn’t that strange? Why, yes, it is, although it’s admittedly not completely unheard of. But what’s even stranger is that Mr. Irreplaceable isn’t singing in his diss track — he’s rapping. Limp braggadocio and lyrical clumsiness over the instrumental to Lil Wayne’s new classic “A Milli” after the jump. Continue reading
