The Family Tour

So I made reference in that last post of a concert I attended a few weeks back. The day was actually chill as Hell. April 27, 2011, at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC to see Atmosphere on The Family Tour with Sab The Artist, Grieves & Budo, DJ Abilities, and Blueprint.

We took the Metro, my first public transportation since my trip to London down to a block and a half away from the club, walked up and got in line. We made it with time to catch Slug of Atmosphere outside walking up and down the line chilling with the fans and taking pictures, headed in and got a nice spot right next to the bar and close enough to the stage to feel every inch of your body vibrate with the bass from the speakers, though I imagine it was like that in every inch of the club.

DJ Abilities opened the show with a few record spins, and then Sab came on and performed. I had never really heard anything from him, but I liked the popular-style while still remaining a part of the conscious-rap genre. He definitely did a lot with the fans that were there with most still having not shown up at that point.

Grieves and Budo came on next and Grieves really put on a show for the crowd. The guy really knows how to get people into it, played around on the stage and performed a couple really hype songs to really get the crowd into it.

DJ Abilities came in for his second set after Grieves and really got the crowd jamming with a couple Outkast songs. Then Blueprint came on and completely turned the place upside down with his incredible sound. Midway through his set though, everyone’s cellphones started going off with tornado warnings for the entire DC area.

Atmosphere finally set up and looking around, the place was packed with maybe 75 more people than before. Slug chose to stick with a relatively old set of songs, playing a lot of his classics. It got a very good response though, and the crowd overwhelmed Slug a few times with the reaction. The newer tracks got a very good response as well.

Coming home, luckily we made it to the car from the Metro before the storm hit but had to drive home in the rain. But overall, it was one of my favorite concert experiences.

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

WWE Brand Split Mock Draft

So we're coming up very close to the brand split in the WWE, where RAW and Smackdown will be exclusive brands with exclusive rosters, and Smackdown will be going live every Tuesday.
Now, there are a number of factors that could shift the way the draft is handled. For example, we're still uncertain which show Shane and Stephanie will run. We're still unsure if they're certainly going to bring back the World Heavyweight Championship, or run with my idea and merge the IC/US titles and make that the main title on Smackdown. We're still not aware if tag teams will be split, if each show will have a unique division and title. We're still not sure if we're going to have women exclusive to each show and what that means for the Women's Championship.
Now, barring all surprise (not currently on the roster, and not NXT) draft choices, let us work with a few assumptions. First, I want to assume they will be bringing the World Heavyweight Championship back. I want t…
