Sly Stilla

I'm very upset at the moment. I've just encountered via FB, another person who goes by the name Sly Stilla.

I've been using the name Sly Stilla since I was about 11 years old (so roughly around 1998). This upsets me, because I never once saw someone else use the name on Myspace or FB, nor anywhere else for that matter. Any searches of Sly Stilla in Google normally redirected to myself.

For a little background on the name, it all started from a fight during a game of basketball with some of my friends and a couple people who played basketball with us at the school behind where I used to live. This guy and I got in a fight over a hard foul (fairly commonplace material). He hit me and ran around the school, and a friend of mine told me to cut him off because he was just going to cut around. I ran up around the other side of the building and hid behind the corner, peeking around to make sure he was coming. I waited for him to get close enough, and then jumped out and hit him. He dropped.

Now while it WAS a cheap shot, it was fair play and revenge for the cheap shot he threw on me, not only with the punch, but the hard foul as well. Anyways, my friend Devin quickly remarked, "Aye he hit him smooth on the sly... stealin' niggas..." and that's where the name was born... Sly Stilla, the sneak attack.

So while this other guy sits here on FB with the name and his petty 2 friends and picture rapping into a pop-filter... I've got the story, blood, sweat, and tears behind my own name. Sly Stilla is ME, and I never thought I'd have a copycat with this name.

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

[9/29]Track of the Day

Track Title: Fuck You Artist: Cee-Lo Green Thoughts: This song is just... incredible. Cee-Lo is an amazing artist, and this track continues to display that. Lyrically, he says everything that needs to be said, and his vocal game is crazy. Great beat, catchy as hell... ...FUCK YOOUUUUUUUU! OOOO-OO-OOOOOOOOO!
