Been soo long...

Yea I know... who does this guy think he is? He doesn't blog for two months and then comes back as if everything is all good...
My apologies folks... I've been derelict in my duties, but at the same time I've been trying to enjoy life rather than document it.

Yea... that's my excuse...

Anyway... I guess I'll start with my spring break.

I cleaned my closet, which is a really big feat... and most importantly, I went to Orlando to kick it with my girl and go to the Jay-Z/Mary J. show.

The show was amazing folks. I had never seen Jay or Mary J. perform live before, and to put it simply, they did the damn thing.


I don't think I'd ever seen someone put as much into every song as Mary J. does. (That's her singing "No More Drama") I always made jokes about how much passion Mary seemed to have before she got her life together and how mellow she is now... but that is not the case. I actually think she was in tears a couple of times. One of the best parts of the show was looking around at all the dudes that obviously came for Jay, but knew almost every Mary song. She really is the queen of Hip-Hop. Oh... and she is in pretty damn good shape right about now. She could get it...



And then there was Jay...

What can I say about this dude that hasn't been said? He's a great performer and definitely hasn't lost a step. And there is something almost electric about an entire arena throwing up the Roc and singing every song word for word. There was a point when Jay started to play about 20 different songs, just to reinforce the knowledge that he has more hits than anyone else.

Aside from the music, the most entertaining part of the evening was the audience. There were girls in freakum dresses galore... trying to climb up the stadium stairs and not fall, dudes in their Easter Church suits, 40 something white folks, and at least one 8 year old. Jay and Mary draw quite the eclectic crowd apparently...

Anyway, here are a couple more pics from the night... enjoy...

Oh yea The Dream opened... and sang 3 songs... and had dancers... doing things...(that's him in the white coat...)

Thanks for the pseudo-shoutout?

Good job blogging about the show, I never got around to it.
