Chicago Transit

Okay now we all know I don't like to complain...yeah right! Anyway so as I waited on the platform in the subway I couldn't help but wonder, why are the freaking trains here so small. Now I get the fact that there are less people that ride the train here than there are in NY but when train after train after train stop let passengers off and I still cant get on and ride home...Because of all of the lame ass CUBS fans there's a problem.
I don't care how selfish of shallow this may sound, but if it is known that the Red Line lets people off right at CUBS stadium why not make the Red Line trains bigger..why make people suffer...also why is it that I cant use my freaking credit card to get a CTA card..and why is it that the, freaking good for nothing booth attendants are not allowed to combine balances on cards ...do you know how hard it is to clean out and completely use a CTA transit card?? OMG what a pain in the ass..Illinois has the highest tax in the nation and you mean to tell me, they cant do better. I'm so over the Chicago Transit Authority...IT FREAKING SUCKS

Mommy and Me: Movie Review

So Mom and I went out to see Shrek on opening night! As always we try to head to out local theater...The 400 on Sheridan, north Chicago, they have beer, alcohol, and wine...Mmm yum. The best part is it only a $5 cover before 6pm and after that its only $7.50. You cant beat that.


The Review

The movie started off with a lot of action and dialogue. As always quick witted and fun. There were a few times although I felt the movie could have been better written, but all in all I thought is was very entertaining. A bit short though. I also loved how they found a way to look back at the previous Shrek instalments. It would have been nice to see more of Shrek's little ones, Fiona kicked butt in the movie. She was totally hot.
Mom on the other hand felt as if they [the writers] had too many similarities between Lord Farquar from the earlier Shrek movie and Rumpelstiltskin (yeah right if ya think I was gonna spell those names correctly). Mom loved Puss in Boots as well as the "new" Donkey. I'm not supposed to tell you all this but she fell asleep for like five min towards the end. She too felt the movie could have been a bit lengthier. As always she loved the soundtrack. All in all the movie has been approved...lol. Mom still feels the other Shrek tales were way better.
We both feel that this final tale for Shrek was not so bad. A great movie to take the lil ones to or heck even you and your boo. Go see the movie if ya wanna have a good laugh and just feel like a kid again.

Just A Bit Annoyed

Why is it that every time I venture off into the hood I always see a Martin Luther King Drive or Way even Avenue. As I roll down that street or ave I always see abandoned buildings, homeless men and women, liquor stores and churches. Always coupled with fast food joints and run-down apartment buildings. What's up with that I just don't get it. Can someone please explain?

I feel so fortunate to have grown up where and the way I have. There was an overwhelming sadness that took over me as I rolled through the streets of the hood. So much nothingness, people okay with this. I felt ashamed Id never say I was one of them or they apart of me.

It is what it is, I'm not trying to be something better. I am better than that, I want better than that, to live the ways of the ghetto is not for me.
In no way am I trying to sound better than the next man but shit I am superior than that. I don't have to subject myself to such disgusts.

I am so proud of my mother for doing her damnedest to make sure I had a good life and upbringing. I owe her everything, my mom sacrificed for me, she did what a lot of people in the hood can't or wont do.

I just had to get some things off my chest. I'm not trying to offend or put down, I'm trying to make some want better and do better. There is so much life out there and there is so much living outside of the hood.

I'm sorry but gang banging is wack its for children and those ignorant of life's blessings, if you choose to run the streets just know you are a waste. A waste of space and breath, your mother should have aborted you cause this world just don't need you.

If I could I'd put all you NIGGAS; Black, White, Spanish, Asian, West Indian, and every race that I missed on an island and I'd exterminate you without a second thought.
There is no room for ignorance and all races have NIGGERS.

Life is beautiful and so short how can you waste such a gift??
