I've been in Houston for about two hours. Here are some quick hits:

1. It's true. Everything is a mess here.
2. I live next door to a mosque and a multiservice center (homeless shelter).
3. Fast food is everywhere which is why Houston people are so fat.
4. I live in the middle of India/Arab town.
5. Where's Chinatown?
6. I really hope it gets much better here.

VY's Kicks

I was at Dick's yesterday looking for some Nike Free's when I saw VY's shoe by Reebok. It's kind of lame how it's Reebok and not Nike, but still a sweet shoe none the less. You can even pump it.

damon jones is international, bitches.

you know, i don't know why i never bothered to post these two pics of the one, the only...the second coming. taken 2 years ago in beijing:

there's only one quote that comes to mind when describing the retrospective feelings of the guy who OK'd this marketing proposal:

"i've made a huge mistake."


i wonder if li-ning makes coats...

This is when you know its official. 

It's the K-R-N

JP hires G's

I was in Houston yesterday filling out some paperwork for pre-employment when I saw a line on the fingerprinting sheet. It asked for "Maiden name, street name, nickname." Street name?? No way!

I wrote Sammy T for that part. After all, it is what I'm known as on the streets of P-town.

The Next Step.

A big shoutout to this guy today. Good luck my friend.

Pete Wentz Ruins Everything

We all love(d) Fall Out Boy

"Beat It", def a Thriller classic

Instead of singing, John Mayer sticks to what he does best/better: Guitar

Buster from Arrested Development makes an appearance (I miss that show)!
+4 (Seriously, it's a good show)

Pete camera whore Wentz somehow manages to squeeze himself into every other shot. His excessive eyeliner and emoxcore hair only further proves that he still, in fact, sucks at life (along with his plastic surgery happy girlfriend).


In all seriousness though, it's a decent cover. Definitely better than all the other junk they've been coming out with post TTTYG.

Korean people are evil

I'm not talking about Kim Jong Ill or his pops, but just the common Korean here at the University of Texas. Tonight, Lydia and I were at PCL studying when some Korean girl got a batch of Tiff's Treats, but she only passed them out to Koreans. 

Well, you're probably thinking... "LOL SAM! They were probably just her friends." This is untrue, she was walking to every Krn in every corner of the room handing them cookies n' shit. 

Lydia, wanted a cookie. I didn't though. No way would I never take one of those.

Oh yeah, before I forget, no offense, Jason. There, my hands are clean. You can't be mad at me.

Back to studying...

Some crazy-ass $hitzzzz going down at ENS!

I was studying at ENS (EE building) today, and I found a group of EE's slacking off with their 'tops open playing some World of Warcraft. 

Spending days in the forest fighting wild boars and evil orcs with his elvish magic, Jimmy quickly forgets that he's still in the ENS 3rd floor lab where he's just another EE, not a hero.

Pretending to be Interested.

I don't know if everyone will find this hilarious like I do, maybe Andrew will (he's a big supporter of overweight, overhyped, cartoon looking, Arab 'DJs').

Some points:

  • Khaled's arms look waaaaaaaaay too big for his body
  • If you could somehow capture the energy of that Palestinian balloon and bottle it, bye bye Monster
  • Look at Kanye doing the same nod throughout the entire song
  • Do you think Khaled has Hezbollah ties?
    • How else does he get all these rappers to be on 'his' songs?

Some pictures I found on my phone

This one's for Enoch. In the end, it's all about the backpack.

Chinese lawyers sue CNN over ‘goons’ remark

Basically, some Chiners got offended when CNN commentator Jack Cafferty said Chinese products were "junk," adding the remark: "They are basically the same bunch of goons and thugs they've been for the last 50 years." These comments were made in response to the recent incidents of the pet food poisonings and the lead painted toy manufacturing, but anyways check out the difference in the damages sought out between the first and second lawsuits:

"The lawyers sought the restoration of the Chinese people's reputation through publications and in the media and asked for 100 yuan ($14.31) in damages, it said." (First Lawsuit)

REF: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/24273650/

"A Chinese primary school teacher and a beautician have filed a suit against CNN in New York over remarks they say insulted the Chinese people and are seeking $1.3 billion in compensation — $1 per person in China, a Hong Kong newspaper reported." (Second Lawsuit)

REF: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/24286776/

In response to the Foreign Ministry's initial demand for an apology, CNN said there was no intent to cause offense and that Cafferty was offering a "strongly held" opinion of the Chinese government, not the people. CNN should have just apologized the first time. Dumbasses.

Good Times: Better than Boston

This past week was a blast. Couple of nice pics to add to the blog:

As not to overshadow the above post, I did a Marty McFly and put it back here.

Justice - STRESS

Directed by Romain Gavras faux-documentary style. The video follows a gang in Paris reeking havoc with Clock-Work Orange-esque violence. Some say it's an irresponsible video promoting violence, some say the video literally kicks ass. I say I've watched it five times now and still can't figure out why these kids haven't been shot to death half way through their escapade. I mean they kicked the living shit out of the police. If that doesn't get you shot I don't know what else would.

Roy Williams Saga Continues

Dallas Cowboys' Roy Williams, not only is the starting STRONG safety, but he is a man of STRONG faith as well.

This article from the DMN has a few awesome quotes from Roy on why he hasn't been able to play up to expectation. After reading the article, you really get an understanding of the struggles that Roy has on the field, and why the Cowboys are FUCKED if we don't figure this out soon...

1. It's "tough" for Roy to turn left or right when he's on man-to-man coverage:

"I will admit that at times, when I had one-on-one situations and you're head up on a tight end or a receiver that can go left or right, it's tough..."

I don't even know what to say to that. It's tough to match up on someone in the NFL that can go left or right? Really?

"All I had to do was run left and sometimes run right, and Eli just found me wide open everytime," said Jeremy Shockey after netting 11 receptions for 133 yards and two touchdown passes.

2. Roy gives a whole new meaning to the term "ball-hawk" by hoping the ball is never thrown his way.

"Sometimes you just hope they don't throw the ball your way, because sometimes you're like, if they go inside, you don't have any help; if they go outside, you don't have any help."

What do Roy Williams and the rational Cowboys fan have in common? They both hope the ball isn't thrown his way.

3. It's okay for the abysmal coverage, since, well... he doesn't get paid like a cornerback. In fact, he gets paid more.

"That's why corners get paid the big bucks."

This is true I guess, but let's just look at the Cowboys payroll:

Terence Newman:$865,647
Anthony Henry:: $2,804,840
Roy Williams:$11,688,850

"You see? If only I was paid like T-New I'd start making those plays," said Roy. Oh Roy, but you are. In fact, you are paid more than 10 times as much as Terence...

4. All is forgiven though, by Jesus for his sins in committing coverage. Not so much by Dallas fans who are still thirsty for a playoff win.

"People will say Roy is really not making any big hits. Ever since I rededicated my life to God, OK, I haven't been making the big hits, but we got further than we ever did when I was living of the world. When I rededicated my life, you know what I'm saying, God showed me that you don't have to live of the world and I will bless you. He has basically overflown my cup. He has shown me so much."

I really don't know what he's trying to say here. Since when did becoming a Christian make you suck on the field? There are plenty of men of faith on the Cowboys roster who still make plays. Why did have at include the, "you know what I'm saying?"

I'm too busy thinking about Jesus, so I'm going to horsecollar Donovan McNabb, that fucking pagan. I mean Eagle...

5. Roy still needs time to find his comfort zone, his little niche, in the defense.

"Please believe the hits will come. I mean, I'm going to have to get comfortable in this defense."

You're in the NFL. You're supposed to pick up new defensive schemes. That's why intelligence is an asset valued highly when the teams draft players. Why do you have to be "comfortable" to make hits? You can't pick out the guy with the ball and tackle him? Sorry, but I don't believe the big hits are coming.

Making hard hits in a 3-4 defensive scheme should be included in Roy's comfort zone. Pussy.

Movie Review: Ironman

This will be my first movie review and most likely my last as well, so here goes:

I'd give this movie a solid: B+.


1. Action scene were pretty sweet. The armor was cool.

Sweet. I can defy physics and fly at supersonic speeds and kill terrorists.

2. Of course, they played the obligatory Black Sabbath' s (thanks, albert) Ironman song at the end of the movie. Reminds me of Guitar Hero and the Nissan Titan truck commercials that played during football season.

3. Leslie Bibb.

I offset the negative hotness that Gwyneth Paltrow adds to the movie, even though everytime you see me, you can't help but think of my lines in Talladega Nights.

4. And of course... can't forget the previews. I loved the previews. Definitely added to the overall experience of the movie.


1. Product placement. If you watch the movie, you'll see what I mean. Audi, Motorola, and even Burger King.

Some marketing rep from BK thought it would be awesome for Ironman to crave a Burger King Cheeseburger after returning from captivity.

2. Corny parts. I guess you can't really do a movie like this without it.

What does a corn dog and every single line from my mouth have in common? We're both corny as hell!!!

3. Gwyneth Paltrow is lame.

I married Chris Martin from Coldplay and I suck.

4. Terrence Howard's Character. I can't believe he agreed to do this role and say half the lines he did. He seriously just acted like a retard for most of the movie.

5. Some Asian kids came in to the movie with a box full of Chinese food and chopsticks. Pissed off a lot of people, since it smelled like white cabbage for most of the movie.

The more I think about it and objectively weigh the factors... this movie deserves like a solid: C-

As you can tell by this point, I don't know shit about movies really at all, and just listed the things I liked and didn't like about the movie. Besides, people who review movies using that Facebook app sound really pretentious anyway.
