From Busto to Robusto Episode 1: CaptZeebo (watch here)
Director Ryan Firpo takes a personal look into the lives of online poker players. He starts with Greg Lavery, better known as CaptZeebo on 2+2. It is a well made documentary with a lot of heart, focusing on the humans behind the screen names worth millions of dollars rather than on strategies of the game.
Releasing CaptZeebo’s story as the premiere episode is a smart move by Firpo. This is a love story from the start and a genuinely sweet one at that.
“In my view… it is better to be impetuous than cautious, because fortune is a woman, and if you wish to dominate her you must beat her and batter her. It is clear that she will let herself be won by men who are impetuous rather than by those who step cautiously.”—
- Niccolo Machiavelli
First off, hahahahaha. Gotta leave it to Machiavelli to equate taking control of one’s life with woman beating.
Ho to the hizz-um / Beats sound so dizz-um / Hook singer’s boring / Reviewer snoring / Hova phones it in like an innocent bystander / Kanye starts off like grandstander / But lands faster than the Ab-Blaster / Tough to rise above limita-tion / When you think you’re God’s gift to crea-tion / by Matt Cibula
I posted this a while back but it wasn’t personally hosted. The running joke is that Kenna should be way more famous than he is. Even Malcolm Gladwell wrote about him in Blink, thus making him more or less known as the The Neptunes’ weed carrier.
In reality, Kenna makes fantastic futuristic pop records: unique melodies over crazy break beats courtesy of Chad Hugo’s production. “I’m Gone” is my favorite Kenna record by a long shot, and the chorus really hits home.
Everything’s good. I’m gone. Nervous and wasted thankfully. Happiness is being numb. So I’m gone, I’m gone.
“I don’t know if I can respect a man who apologizes to a woman three times and he never even had sex with her. Once is bad enough. If two apologies don’t work, you might as well just slap her. She obviously thinks you’re some sort of monster - go ahead and give her a good reason to.”—Bol on Kanye’s mishandling of this Taylor Swift incident
“Just 1 fcking sick thing happened when I went took take away food from Noodles..I saw BJ table when I was waiting 5min my food and lost f 150k there…but Chicken Kung Po was great anyway.”—Ilari Sahamies aka Ziigmund has a blog.
