Good morning. Are you looking for advancement? Do you want a boost in life? Sometimes we need to check our giving habits. Are you an occasional giver? A systematic giver? A Tither??? Remember giving and receiving are one and the same. Giving is just receiving inside out. If things are held up in your life... Remember this principle.. Life gives to the giver and takes from the taker...

Doesn't get any better than this
Good morning. Many people miss life because they are waiting for something great. It only happens through small things: eating your breakfast, walking,,, taking a bath, talking to a friend etc. Small things are what life is made of. When you collect one pebble, it is a pebble. When pebbles are together, suddenly they are diamonds. That's the miracle of life. -Osho One pebble at a time :-)

Format: You guys mentioned A Love Supreme, is that the name of your next album?
Y-O: Yeah, it’s all produced by this producer named Ro Blvd. He produced “The Launch” off the Fried Chicken & Watermelon street album.
Format: Can you talk a little bit about the album?
Thurzday: Basically it’s just expanding our sound. A lot of people got good vibes off Fried Chicken & Watermelon, and we just want to expand that. Really show people what all we can do, and what else we can do before we go to an official release. We just want to gain as many fans as possible, you know, independently. It’s us working on our own and expanding on our own, basically. All of our tracks are produced by Ro Blvd. It’s really no other way to describe it other than an Aquemini-Stankonia feel to it. But it’s still U-N-I.

EXTRA: Blue Scholars on Myx: Dig (VIDEO)
Blue Scholars- Comprised of emcee Geologic AKA Prometheus Brown and DJ Sabzi, this hip hop duo is raising awareness about issues that affect young people, especially those of color. Geo developed his lyrical skills as a spoken word poet in the Seattle group Isangmahal (One love) while Sabzi used his training as a jazz pianist to make beats. The two met in college at a hip hop event and the Blue Scholars were born. They have spent the last 5 years touring the country, performing at immigrants rights rallies, youth centers and colleges, encouraging youth to be informed about the world they live in.

The DC government spent nearly $800,000 removing graffiti in 2007, but this year there's $100,000 in the city budget to HELP graffiti artists produce murals - legally.
The city is embracing some young DC artists in hopes of curbing illegal graffiti-- but do graffiti artists want to be part of the establishment?

Good morning. You cannot receive what you cannot give. This is a law of mind. Give love, joy and goodwill to all... Your thought patterns and mental imagery are made manifest in your life by your love nature or your emotional attachment. (Remember!) Whatever idea you emotionalize will come to pass. Fulfeelment is fulfillment.

Be at peace with everyone

Let go and let God
Good morning. Sometimes it can seem easy to push your way through life, but very often that can be a losing strategy. The more you shove, the more resistance you get. (Here's the secret) Make your request known to God, do the work, and then back off a bit. To your amazement, you'll watch the whole problem vanish! (Remember!) Let go and let God.

Good morning, Let's focus this week!. What is your goal? Think about your life. Goals are very simple to define. I heard someone say.. â€œEither you're going somewhere or your not!!â€� Self help Guru Zig Ziglar says.. â€œA man or a woman without a goal is like a ship without a rudder. Each will drift and not drive. Each will end up on the beaches of despair, defeat, and despondency.â€�. Go for your goals!

Good morning. Difficulties are aways there. They are a part of life. And it is good they are there, otherwise there would be no growth. Difficulties are challenges. They provoke you to work, to think, to find ways to overcome them. The very effort is essential. So always take difficulties as blessings. -Osho

Eskay from Nah Right chimes in on this video as well. Sickamore wonders if the second version was inspired by Colin Munroe. What do you think? OcToExtraordinaire who posted the video on YouTube had the following to say.
This was the version you weren't meant to see. Planned to be the video he was suppose to release. That means you won't see this on TV. I hope Kanye won't be mad at me because of this.spotted on Street Knowledge
Kanye, email me, I'll remove this if it's necessary.
I just happened to have the tube on CNN Headline News' News To Me show on and who pops up? That's right... Nikki Jean! She's currently on the Glow in the Dark Tour and you probably have heard of her singin the hook on Lupe Fiasco's Hip-Hop Saved My Life track of The Cool album.
The man pictured above, Charles Gilbert, of CNN discovered Nikki Jean as he was on the internets via Lupe Fiasco. He was curious to find out who sung the hook on Intruder Alert. After YouTubing and doing a bit of research, he found Nikki Jean's page on YouTube. You can read the rest of his discovery which became a story on News To Me about Nikki Jean by clicking here! I wish there was a video of the segment that I could find, but have had no luck finding the clip. Below is the video that was the highlight of the story.

I know that this is older footage, but didn't know when it was filmed or aired. I just talked to Choklate and she was sayin it was sometime last Spring of '07. So, the previous post with Cancer Rising was probably filmed around the same time.
Burton just released their sleeper hoodie which comes in white as well. Yes, it's an all-over "passport" print, but the cool thing about it is that it's one you can sleep in. It has a removable neck pillow that inflates, eye mask, snap-out light shield, and interior pockets to hold that passport and toothbrush keeping the world traveler in mind. This is a hoodie I can definitely use often. Yo Burton, send one my way, I'll let you know how it holds up!
