Same 'Ol runnin' game, or any of that. Plus, it takes too much work. Start off runnin' game, and you gotta keep on runnin' game...and I don't have my runnin' shoes on.

Everything's cool over here; I'm just not motivated to write anything right now. I'll be checkin' on the blogroll, and keepin' up with everyone like that. Y'all have no idea how much of a good thing it is to have something to take my mind away from what goes on around here, 24/7. It's much appreciated.

Be easy.

Nerd....but a Fly Nerd. what turned you on to Douglass???
I need it for a class I'm in.
So that's the only reason you're reading it, is for a class???
Yeah...why else???
-conversation between Ice Cube and Omar Epps, in Higher Learning.

The title of this post was taken from a friend of mine, who describes herself (well, one way she does) as a nerd, but a "fly nerd." Ever since I was able, I LOVE to read. It provides a much-needed balance to the part of me that's the typical caveman: basketball, football, women, kickin it with my know, that type of shit. The reading part just brings another dimension that's priceless, in my opinion. To this day, I've NEVER, NEVER, EVER understood why people don't read, don't like to read, think it's a waste of time to read, etc. I'll never get it, EVER. *woosah...WOOOOSAHHHH*

I've always been more into autobiographies, books with historical significance, and ones whose primary focus is internal growth. Rarely do I read fiction, unless there's a loyalty to the author (Solomon Jones, Cheryl Robinson, Donald Goines, Eric Jerome Dickey), or if I'm looking to watch a movie adaptation (which is why I've been reading Grisham lately). I get damn near as much joy from reading a good book as I do from any football game, basketball game, sex, movie, working out, name it.

Anyway, here's a list of some of the most memorable books I've had the pleasure of coming across. Why I'm doing this now, I have no clue. Maybe it's because it's after 2 AM, and I can't take my ass back to sleep. Just feels like the right thing to do. Be easy.

November 4, 2008 was the happiest night of my life. That's all I gotta say for now.

Compilation of Thoughts

Some people are truly only around for a season. No need in tryin' to make 'em stay around longer.

There's a lesson learned in every interaction, big or small.

At 26 years old, I have officially retired from the art of trying to figure women out. It's like kicking a dead horse, especially if we can't do shit for each other.

There are too many good ones around to give time for others who don't want it or don't deserve it.

I'm busy/was busy/been busy (or other variations involving the B-word) is the most tired excuse I've ever heard. I have a lot on my plate too, so the busy stuff is for the birds. Folks make time if it's worth it.

I wish some would just come out and say what they want or don't want. I'll tell you if I aint talking about nothin'. At this point, it'll come early enough before any of our time is wasted.

Women ARE NOT built to be players. AT ALL. Dudes really aint either, because we easily find ways to fuck it up. Best policy is to just be as honest as possible. Lonely, say it. Horny, say it. Just want some company, say it. The worst that can happen is you get an answer you may not want, but it's better than playin' yourself.

My mindset right now pretty much is....charge it to the game.

Just the random thoughts going through my head at the moment. Be easy.

Nada Mucho

I'm far from the biggest fan of fiction literature, but I can give credit where it's due. John Grisham's off-the-chain. I'm on book two right now, and while I only plan on reading his titles that became movies, that could change if I enjoy them enough. If so, I just may end up reading ALL his books, and I've only done that with one other author, The Great Donald Goines. Beside that, all is well; just another weekend of reading and football. Oh yeah, here's a picture from last night. One of my chapter brothers, Matt Lloyd, and I dressed up as Eazy and Cube, circa the N.W.A. days. Be easy.
