Just for Fun

The Ni**a “S” & You.

Up until I was about eight years-old, my mom and I would get up on Sunday mornings to go to church with my grandma. My aunt and two cousins would meet us there. Other than the six of us, there were probably only another 7-10 other people there consistentl ...

Confidence Levels.

Listen, I don’t care what anyone tells you, confidence is a fluid thing. There is no one on Earth who is confident about 100 percent of things, 100 percent of the time. It just isn’t happening. Even Kevin Durant misses free-throws sometimes. E ...

#StevieAintBlind.

You may not be aware, but there’s a movement brewing. It’s a movement among those of us who believe that Stevie Wonder can see, separating us from the rest of you terrible people who wish blindness on the man. That’s right, ladies and ge ...

So it’s been a minute, eh?.

*cracks knuckles over keyboard… begins typing* So contrary to popular belief, when I said farewell to Kansas City, I wasn’t saying farewell to you, ThaWell, or the ECHI podcast. It’s just been a crazy few months. Needless to say, I’ ...

Chicks Dig Dirt.

In college I had this dirty friend/suite-mate. (For context, the suites had four bedrooms that shared a common living room. Two bedrooms and a bathroom on either side of the living room. This particular friend and I lived on the same side.) No, I don̵ ...

Thoughts From My Inner Jerk.

  I like to consider myself to be a pretty nice guy. I smile often, I give courtesy laughs to bad jokes, and I lend a helping hand when I can. Nice, right? Well, it is for the most part. The truth is that I have an inner jerk. He says stuff that I of ...

Allow Me To Introduce Myself….

Tuesday’s can get a little desolate round these parts so to fix that I reached out to a friend of mine to see if he can help fill that void. Laurent agreed to have a post on some Tuesdays coming up just so you all can have something to read, think a ...

My Vacation Recap: Part I (The Plan).

If you were paying attention, you may have noticed that I didn’t post last week. I was away. My 30th birthday was back in late December, and I put off the celebration until last week to go on a cruise. The initial plan was to invite a huge group of ...

Go Dumb!….

A quick look at this week’s news stories proves 3 things: 1. The world went dumb (maybe around December 21, 2012…just saying) 2. The world went insaner (yep, that’s the word) 3. Someone needs to get priorities readjusted With that being ...

What’s wrong with _______?.

Hi. Today’s post is going to be a little bit different. There are a lot of things wrong here on earth. I’m going to fill in the blanks with some of my own topics, and then answer the question for you by telling you what’s wrong. If you&# ...

From Satan Himself.

It’s really hard to be a man sometimes. Men have to be tough during adversity.  Men have to be providers. Men have to go downstairs when there’s a “bump in the night.” And all of this is perfectly fine, because at the end of the d ...

Waiting Room.

I am currently sitting in a waiting room at the Dr’s office. I have a couple observations. 1. The guy next to me really loves Nike…and Drakkar 2. I’ve just got called from one waiting area to another. 3. I wonder if ill have to “dr ...

I’m a hater.

I’m pretty sure I’m a hater. I didn’t realize it until recently. I spent last week on a work trip to the middle of nowhere, Illinois, which meant I had a rental car, which meant I didn’t have my car/iPod, which meant I had to liste ...

So Gangsta.

Typical room of an e-thug Imagine a world, where anyone can be a tough guy. No gym memberships required. No prison tats. No posse. No, in this world, all you need is a keyboard. To say that laptop thugs have become an epidemic is to say July has been a li ...

More thoughts on the LDOC.

A couple weeks ago, Chris ranted on discussed the LDOC. For those of you that haven’t read it and are too lazy to click the link to it (even though it’s right there… and here… and even here), the LDOC stands for the Long, Drawn out ...

Next Stop: Shopping at K&G Fashions.

My birthday is today and it seems like every year I tend to take some time and reflect on what I’ve done with my life so far at that point. This year is no different. As I write this so many thoughts are running through my mind about the things that ...

Doing My Thing.

No collective discussion today, we’re saving it all for the podcast. So today I just have a quick follow up to yesterday. Yesterday I wrote about the Long Drawn Out Conversation (LDOC) and I got a lot of responses offline that I was not a person exi ...

Boaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaz.

When I was in college I knew a guy who really liked a girl. He liked this girl so much that he would call her constantly, invite her to hangout during any spare time the two had. This guy even went so far as to cut this lady’s little brother’s ...
