wake up, the west coast is back!
first, southern california is the home to the best new reality show, "laguna beach," then we got two teams mixing it up in the pennant race, and now we're the home to the game. with the leaking of his potential first single, "higher," the game re introduces the hip hop community to the west coast. after years of producing nerdy back pack groups who've been making the same album for the past 5 years or hip hop for goofy white kids and old folks, the game comes on the scene with a sinister dr. dre beat. while i'm sure if it will have the massive cross over appeal of 50's "in da club," "higher" follows the same lyrical pattern. catchy hook and enough name drops, you would think you're at lotus on a friday night. hip hop site does an excellent job of writing up the rest of the similarities between the two singles.

i believe that i may have to start a feature here at the old skeet shoot, the ubiquitous reference to some babes at polaroid scene can be found here; if all new york city babes, look this, i'm moving post haste and i'm going to have ja rule's "livin' it up" as my new theme song.
dude, who would've thought that your humble narrator, a devoted jimmy fallon hater, would write on a monday morning that this past weekend's s.n.l. was sorely missing his endearing line flubs and laughs at his own jokes? seriously, this season is going to be worst than that season with chris elliott and frankly, if i'm going to have to live with seth myers' impression of john kerry for the next 4 years, i may just throw my vote and vote for bush. memo to tina fey and amy pohler, leave now before your talent gets wasted like maya rudolph's or you'll end up playing the pregnant hispanic lady in every other sketch too.
remember hipsters: bloc party tonight at spaceland; seriously, you're gonna be on fire.
