You may have noticed a trend with recent posts. They are all pretty much surrounding the Inauguration of our FIRST African American President, Barack Obama. I hope you were able to catch it, no matter where you are. I commend all those who made it out to the actual mall to have a front row seat to history. My mother and aunts actually ventured out today downtown D.C. to check out the Inauguration live and direct. Unfortunately I woke up sick as a dog today so I’ve been watching history from my bed. If you aren’t in D.C. I hope you did as well especially right now because theÂ MTV Youth Inaugural Ball, “Be The Change”, is on!! Which leads me to an excerpt from one of my favorite books. That’s right folks. What A Man Should Know Vol 1.
#19: A MAN SHOULD KNOW HOW TO PROGRAM THE REMOTE
AND HOW TO FIND IT WITHOUT PITCHING A FIT WHEN IT GETS LOST. GENERAL PRACTICE OF HOUSEHOLD SKILLS IS AN ADMIRABLE TRAIT IN A MAN.

So if you were at club Love last night for the Akon, Jeezy, and T.I. appearances then you were certaintly in for a treat. The lineup was already ridiculous but seeing how Jay is in town to be a part of the most historical inauguration ever, Jeezy figured he might as well be a part of his performance as well. If you haven’t heard it already or seen a video of the Jay-Z/Jeezy collab at Love check it out right here folks. It’s bananas if I do say so myself. Happy MLK Day!!!http://www.vimeo.com/2880630

INAUGURATION: a formal ceremony to mark the beginning of something such as a president’s term of office. The most common usage of the term is in the context of a formal investiture whereby an individual assumes an office or position of authority or power. The term is usually used in reference to a politician’s assumption of the duties of head of state or head of government (e.g. the President’s inauguration).
I figured I’d throw the definition and the correct spelling in here so people could know exactly what they will be witnessing on January 20th, 2008. AND so people can stop misspelling inauguration because I will laugh at the next text I get that says “Yo Nick I’ll b in dc for inawgauration”. Really? I don’t know what that is but I’m sure Obama won’t be there. But he will be at his INAUGURATION and you should be there as well. D.C. will be a zoo for a week or more because this is history yet again. I wasn’t around for the Million Man March but this will be just as monumental so if you have some vacation time you may want to use it from the 19th to maybe the 23rd of January so you can enjoy the festivities. Stay tuned for me to post different bus tours and means of transportation to come out here as well as various events that I have the scoop on…Peace n Love folks.
