2. David Banner's "Swag": I can't remember the last time (minus Eminem's "Syllables") that I actually had to listen to a hip-hop song more than a couple times to make sure I got all the lyrics. Usually it's a bunch of negative gibberish with a tight beat. I can dance to a few, but I'd NEVER buy it. This song, however, I respect. I respect what David Banner is doing professionally anyway, but this cut sealed it for me. (Just an FYI, I despise it when people use the word "nigga" and completely disregard the history. I went through a stage in high school when I thought it was OK but college quickly poured ice water on me and I haven't used it in conversation--outside of quoting--since then.)
4. Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter church speech: Mayor Nutter talks about youth mob groups, parenthood, criminal activity and education in this video. Although I think some folks may miss the message, I agreed with 100%. He dropped a lot of knowledge that may irritate those who won't admit it's the truth (or are too ashamed to realize they're the problem).
5. Michael van Straten "The Omega 3 Cookbook": After mentioning to a co-worker that I was trying to find ways to have omega 3 in my diet and how I've been ill three times trying to eat fish again, he found this book in his collection of food stuff. I love food reporters/editors. They can always give you good tips on a recipe or up your food game. I'm absolutely attached to that book these days. I made two galleries out of it to give others ideas on omega 3: Gallery 1 (meals) and Gallery 2 (nuts).
