The fact that DMX pulled over “just to watch the sunrise” makes me die a little inside.

Upper Playground Giving Away Sam Flores Piece Worth $10K

Thursday, January 29th, 2009

I’m struggling to eat. Sam Flores is slanging paintings for 10K. God damn I wish I didn’t get kicked outta art camp when I was young.

 Anyway.. 

See that ?? .. It’s 6′ x 4′ and it’s worth $10,000. Upper Playground is giving it away to one lucky sumbitch who joins it’s mailing list before February 12th. That is marketing strategy at it’s finest.

Why are they doing it? Well.. Upper Playground also turns 10 years old this year, and they are kinda happy about their success.

So how do you enter?

To enter, all you have to do is register your email at the top right corner of UpperPlayground.com. If you’re already signed up, then you are already entered. The contest is open for 2 weeks and a winner will be announced on Thursday, February 12th.  For details, rules and more information please visit the feature on UpperPlayground.com.

In addition, UP is also slanging some slightly more affordable Sam Flores original drawings at their store in SF. If you live near SF.. invest a little on something that will one appreciate in value over time. Cop some Flores:

Video: Chris Jericho Ice Grills Mickey “The Wrestler” Rourke

Thursday, January 29th, 2009

Anybody seen this flick The Wrestler? Mickey Rourke, barely functional about a year ago it seems, just picked up an Oscar nomination for his role and I heard Marisa Tomei is naked half the movie. Sounds like a winner. But getting gassed up on your own success has a price…

First, Mick decides to use a red-carpet interview with this fucking clown to announce that he’s coming for Chris Jericho at Wrestlemania in Texas.

     
 
Then watch a bemused Jericho give him a look like he’s going to pound him to death using only his chin on Larry King. Mickey looks like he either wants to call his lawyers or pee his pants.

Rakim Wuz Here

As long as the Microsoft linguists who’re responsible for updating Word are adding “Barack” and “Obama” to the spell-check dictionary, they should throw in “Rakim.” It’s about time — as he confirmed at Harpers Ferry Friday night, homeboy is pretty much the greatest MC ever to grip a mic.
