Food: Pasta… Healthy, Affordable, And FAST (Video)

If you can’t tell, I am really on these ‘Eat Seeker’ vids from Thrillist lately. And if you couldn’t have guessed, I LOVE GOOD PASTA! I’m saying though… Who doesn’t??

It takes less than 45 seconds for Chef Mark Ladner to cook you a bowl of pasta at his new spot, Pasta Flyer. This isn’t a new chef-driven fast-casual concept that charges $13 for fettuccine with alfredo. This is real fast food – it’s under $9, lightning fast and has the added bonus of healthy ingredients sourced from around the city. This is the way fast food should be.

Advice: Jay Shetty Proclaims That You Can Still Win… Rejection Is Just ‘Redirection’ (Video)

Reflect, refuel, and refocus…
If a door doesn’t open, it’s not your door!

Man! This Jay Shetty guy is preaching a WORD today!! Chuuch! Rejection is someone else’s decision. Whether I quit or not, that is MY decision. And I cannot quit on myself. Neither can you: You do NOT have permission. Especially if you are Hip-Hop!

Environment/Activism: How Much Do ‘Black Lives Matter’ To This Louisiana Plant? Not Much… (Video)

Just off G.P. this should get a thorough looking into. Just think: It there is a chance that a deadly chemical, given off in the process to make recreational stuff, is killing off this predominantly Black Louisiana town, isn’t it worth study (and a fight, if true)? This 77-year old ‘fighter’ thinks so. So he’s taking on a giant chemical plant to save his community.

The U.S. Tax Code Favors The Rich… Just Ask This Millionaire (Video)

Damn. Even this rich guy shows us his tax return. Waiting on you, President Trump

This millionaire revealed his tax return to show just how much the GOP tax law favors the rich.
– NowThis Opinions

Yep. The rich get richer, as the poor get shafted. And make no mistake, Eric Schoenberg is playing the game as it is; taking every tax advantage afforded him (because, like President Trump says, he is ‘smart’). But at least he’s honest about what the ‘game’ really is.

Miami’s Luxury Car Hustle: Hey Player, You Can Rent ‘That Life’ For A While (Documentary)

Some say, “Fake it ’til you make it.” Then others may ask, “Why not put that money into actually making it?” Well, the guys running the luxury rental biz seem to actually be making it (money) from those who rent fancy cars to ‘fake it.’

“The car business, in general, is a tough business. The car rental business, even more so. Anybody who finds out they can make money and drive a Ferrari, I mean, they’re diving in head first,” says Matt Cruz, owner of MVP Exotic Rentals, a legitimate luxury car rental business based in Miami. But when everybody wants to be a celebrity, how to you tell the difference between faking it and making it? The game is finesse, and with the allure of getting behind the wheel of the world’s most expensive cars, who wouldn’t want to play? In a world where likes and fame can be bought and the filtered facade of Instagram reigns supreme, VICE meets some of the legit — and the not-so-legit — players that cater luxury car rentals to the biggest rappers, athletes, and celebrities of the moment.

Dear #BurnYourNikes Movement, Nike Doesn’t Mind At All (Video)

If you feel like wasting some keystrokes, comment on the next vid you see posted by a ‘Nike burner’ that Nike doesn’t give not one aglet about #BurnYourNikes

(Oh, and an ‘aglet’ is that sheath or tip at the end of your shoelace. You knew that? Okay cool.)

See, this whole ‘we stand by Kaep‘ stance Nike is putting forth is still a BUSINESS move at its core. We know that, right? Right?? It’s a business move that folks (read: the majority of people that Nike wants to buy its products) who are cool with #TakeAKnee will vote in favor of… with their purchasing power.

This is why Nike doesn’t care if you set your shoes on fire.
– VICE News Tonight

Just like choosing to ‘vote’ for (buy from) Burger King because you like your burgers flame-broiled, or your way, or whatever the other fast food joints ain’t doing. Or vice versa.

And for folks who decide to NOT buy from them anymore, Nike is wagering (i.e. taking a strategic business risk) there will be few enough of them to not matter (to its BUSINESS). Buuuut… all this could make for some cool counter-hashtaggery to make the new ‘Nike haters’ hot though…

#KaepHatersDontMatter

Nah…

#GoOnAndBurnYourGear #NikeAlreadyHasYourMoney

Better…

KevOnStage Explains “Why Nike Ain’t Worried” About The Boycott (Video)

He’s got a point. Several points. And anybody ‘big mad’ enough about Colin Kaepernick being a spokesperson for Nike’s new marketing campaign can have several seats… while we #TakeAKnee

(And they can grab a cape, because when they realize that Kaep will get a check while they rip/burn/etc. products on which they’ve already spent hard-earned money on, they will be SUPER MAD!)

Roc-A-Fella Records Co-Founder Kareem “Biggs” Burke Is Still Doing Big Business (Video)

Interesting! Now everyone knows Jigga, and many know Dame Dash. But what about the third side of the triangle. Those who know, know why this is extra good to see… “Biggs” still doing it big!

Without Kareem “Biggs” Burke, you may never have heard the name Jay-Z. That’s because Biggs was the quiet partner in the three-man team that founded Roc-A-Fella Records, which launched Jay-Z’s career. Today, Biggs is running his own show by building a portfolio of companies focused on lifestyle.

“A self-made millionaire, many times over…” That’s what’s up #Salute

Soaring Sex Toy Sales In South Korea (Documentary)

Hmm. Surprising that this is just starting to blow up as an industry over there. Sex and all things naughty-naughty sell and sell well. The level of regulation and societal taboo to counter it must have been tremendously stifling. Still likely is, but looks like things are loosening up (insert your own ‘dirty jokes’ here).

Sex toy stores are opening up all over South Korea and customers have been flocking to them. In the past, the few adult stores that existed were hidden behind tinted glass and filled with dirty or outdated toys. Now times are changing and sex is becoming more visible to the mainstream.

But more access to sex toys doesn’t negate South Korea’s many sexual taboos and the lack of sex education and industry regulation.

A Societal How-To For People Of Color: Watch “The Melanin Code” (Documentary)

Yessir. This knowledge is needed! Forty acres and a mule just will not do. People of color in America need generational wealth. Watch “The Melanin Code” and let’s learn to organize and get that. Trailer above. Link to the documentary (on demand) below.

How is it possible to thrive when history has shown that for over 300 years, where there have been steps taken to divide melanated people mentally? The answer is simple. We need to start over from scratch and go back to the basics. We need a Code of Conduct. We need an Instructional Video.

Yes, an Instructional Video that covers all areas of activity:

Economics
Education
Entertainment
Law
Labor
Politics
Religion
Sex
War

This is a “Solutions-Based” film. The diverse cast of business owners, financial experts, religious figures, well-known activists, educators, politicians and even members of the police force will identify the problems within our race, and will present solutions.

“The Melanin Code” will also decode hidden actions and keywords from the dominant society that are used to demean us.

All other ethnic groups have a code they abide by to get things accomplished. Let’s establish ours.
