  • Think Different, Be Different

    Posted on

      A few days ago I posted an Apple ad that contained the tagline, “Think different.”.  At some point in our lives, we’ve been asked the question by our parents or guardians, “If your friend jumped off the bridge, would you follow?”.  It was then that we were challenged to think different, to think for ourselves […]
  • Play to Win

    Posted on

    Those  familiar with NFL football know Herm Edwards as the former coach of the Kansas City Chiefs and the New York Jets and currently as an analyst on ESPN.   Before the 2011 NFL season, Herm spoke to incoming rookies about the “business” of football.  Although Edwards was speaking to young men about the business of […]

  • Air Jordan IX Johnny Kilroy

    Posted on

    Nike has always been one of my inspirations.  I admired the brand both athletically and creatively.  Some may remember with the release of the Air Jordan IX, Nike’s creation of the character Johnny Kilroy.  Well, Nike has decided to bring Kilroy back with the re-release of several variations of the Air Jordan IX.  The first of […]

  • Double Play

    Posted on

    Double Play There's no denying that Deion Sanders and Bo Jackson are the best two sport athletes, EVER! The things these two were able to do in football and baseball was nothing short of spectacular. These two not only had the ability to compete in both the NFL and MLB, but also excelled. One might say they were both better football than baseball players. But, when you consider that hitting a baseball is the toughest skill in sports and these two spent their off-season on the football field, you may find new respect for what they were able to accomplish. They were also very successful pitchman for Nike. Check out visuals of their commercials and highlights below.
  • Sunday Inspiration: Stay in the Fight

    Posted on

      Sort of a re-post, but I think the ending to the movie Ali is one of the most inspirational ever.  Life’s challenges are endless.  Even when you feel like you’ve been backed into the ropes, never give up and stay in the fight! “Can’t let you get that second wind which you don’t even […]
  • The LeBrons

    Posted on

    Branding.  It is one of the most important concepts we all should grasp and understand.  We must seek to create and protect our own brand.  Not as it relates to clothing, shoes, or any product for that matter.   But, how we are viewed by others in the world.  Before Lebron James ever entered the […]
  • Niceguys Finish Last?

    Posted on

    Houston, we have a problem.  You have probably one of the nicest, no pun intended, hip hop groups in your backyard and most of you don’t even know it.  I did a blog entry on these cats back in June and it seems nothing has changed as far as their recognition.  Their debut album, The Show, […]
  • The Legendary: A Film About The Roots

    Simply one of the best bands EVER, The Roots continue to do their thing. I was fortunate to see them in concert again about two weeks ago. They kill. Black Thought has got to be one of the most, if not the single most underrated emcee ever. Dude’s voice live flows with so much clarity […]

  • Fail To Succeed

    Posted on

    No one likes to fail.  Nor am I advocating failure.  But, it’s that very failure that can lead to your success.  The biggest failure one could ever commit is not even trying due to fearing failure.  The key is to learn from your mistakes and turn them into successes.  Always give your all and if you […]
  • A King Of Kings

    Posted on

    I can’t even begin to explain the love and respect I have for this man.  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a true LEADER of men.  In an age of celebrity worship and selfishness, Dr. King is someone to look back to for how one should live and treat others.  Imagine not only living, but […]

    I love music and I love hip hop.  If you’ve been following the blog you probably noticed that.  But, that stuff that plays on the radio “they” call hip hop these days has really got me enjoying what hip hop use to be.  This BS the labels and radio keeps peddling has got to go. […]

  • Zack of All Trades: Jack & Jill – Saturday Morning PSA

    Posted on

    Ahhhh!!!  Saturday mornings in the 80’s.  No worries, no bills, no concerns.  Just a bowl of cereal and cartoons.  Not to mention the PSA’s that seem to be so prevalent on Saturday mornings back then.  Telling us to eat fruit, to get out and play and letting us know how important it is to take care […]

  • Happy Birthday Tupac Shakur!!!

    Posted on

    Why many may want to argue about who is actually the greatest rapper of all time, to me there is no argument.  Tupac Amaru Shakur (June 16, 1971 – September 13, 1996), will forever in my mind be the best. Although some may site ‘Pac’s brash and unrelenting personality as a negative,  if you would […]

    Being a kid of the ’80’s, listening to De La Soul brings back a lot of memories. Especially hearing their 1989 hit Me, Myself and I.  The song speaks of individuality and being comfortable with our own style and who we are.  Thinking back to those days, it was always fun trying to find my […]
