is such a thing as a "BLACK cloud" that follows
a person to give them bad luck, then that was definitely the
case with my boy, n8 dogg
last week. I already mentioned in my last
thought that he was in a car accident that totalled our
signature ride, nWo
2.. but following that event, just 3 days later..
n8 was in his rental car driving home from traffic court and
with one more exit to go.....he is pulled over by the police
where he was given a speeding ticket for going 140km in
a 100km zone. Don't think that's the end of the story...
the following Thursday, n8 is coming out of class when he
sees a note attached to his windsheild saying:
Tire Is Low On Air"
looks at the tire, its already flat. He changes the tire to
a spare and figures he can get the tire repaired. When he
takes the tire in, the tire is deemed unrepairable. There
were 2 nails puncturing both sides. So he's left to replace
the tire (a $190 value). Talk about a bad week... You can
read more of his misery here.

and more as I write this column every week, I feel that I
could so use a digital camera. That would save cK so much
time. I'd have so many pics of my crazy adventures up the
same week I speak about them instead of waiting for my film
to develop and then the painful labour of scanning them. Of
course digital cameras don't exactly come cheap -- especially
for a guy that is desperately looking for work. So my other
alternative is this new Polaroid I-Zone camera.
inexpensive, the pics are instant and just about the right
size to scan for this page. Also, if you have seen the latest
commercials where you can take "fortune" I-Zone
pics. Where you take a picture, and before it develops, you
see a fortune -- then it fades into the pic you took. Seems
like a cool idea.. fun for lots of friends on a road trip
or generally around school. We'll see if I can get that..

of the biggest announcements in cable television right now
for me is that Comedy Central will now be playing
Late Night with Conan O'Brien. This show is usually
on NBC at 12:30am right after Jay Leno. If you haven't had
a chance to watch him because he is on too late, then Comedy
Central will be showing the show played the night before at
7pm! This is great and also the FIRST Late Night show to ever
do this (that I'm aware of). Conan, who has written for The
Simpsons and Saturday Night Live, has a very different style
of comedy compared the other Late Night shows. He was at one
time, unrivaled in his timeslot until CBS put on the Craig
Kilbourne Show. I do have to say that show is still quite
funny, but not up to the level where Conan has me literally
laughing to tears. Conan originally had a "sidekick"
on his show, Andy Richter. Andy left the show to pursue his
own acting career. He did suceed with a hit sitcom on FOX,
but for some reason I don't see it on anymore.

this week, I was given a link from a friend
to check out this site. It's a DJ from Brampton, Ontario,
Canada who is slowly building a fan base before he takes over
the airwaves on the big radio stations and Toronto night clubs.
I took a listen to some of his mixes and they were really
good. If you are into r&b/hip hop remixes, then you should
definitely check out: http://www.soulextremist.net.
He just might become a household name in the coming years,
so don't get on the bandwagon when its too late. Feel free
to email him and sign his guestbook. You could avoid long
lines at the club and tell the bouncer, "MAN, I know

a final note: I'm finding it more and more frustrating
to get a job out here.. With only $50 left to my name -- I
have to leave BORElando before I am killed by my family. What
I'm talking about is that my dad has had enough of me not
being able to find a new job and not being in school. Just
for the record, I'm still paying the $25,000 I owe for student
loans. How would I afford to get another education with no
job or no money? So his exact words were: "I'm tired
of you "playing" on the computer all the time. You
are doing nothing with your life. I'm gonna put rat poison
in your food and blow your ass up!!! I'd adopt two girls from
Guatemala, get rid of you and put them through school.. and
they will amount to so much more than you'll ever be!!!"
So much for tough love, right? Obviously that nice country
drive I took him and my mom out on this weekend wasn't pleasing
to them. I somehow have to get out of here. I keep holding
my rage in because I have nobody else to go to if something
happens. I'm on my own here. I have to find a job SOMEWHERE
-- just anywhere BUT Orlando. Next month will be an exact
year I have been out of work. How sad.. how sad.
