Who is Sliimy?

Yesterday Twitter was a buzzin'

Lady Gaga (my white girl wifey) is still touring all across Europe.
And even though she periodically tweets, despite a having 139,000 followers
this one particular tweet had Twitter tweeting...
Going on stage in switzerland, who is sliimy?
12:00 PM Jul 21st from TwitterBerry Who is Mike Jones?

Yes, yall Lady Gaga (at least in my twitterverse) caused a frenzy one Twitter. Everyone from me to the Kardashians (Kim & Khloe) to Kendra Wilkinson & plenty other celebs and the entire Twitter population was asking the same thing "Who is Sliimy?," making Sliimy the number one Trending Topic on Twitter Tuesday, July 21, 2009.

So Who is Sliimy?


Sliimy is a French singer/songwriter from Saint-Ettienne/living in Paris, France who did a cover (song) to Britney Spears' hit "Womanizer". His music is very light upbeat pop x tropical. Very feel good. I've got to admit I like! He's even actually touring right now & NO THERE IS NO TYPE IN HIS NAME
les deux "i" c'est juste pour faire sourire :) huh?

Here's Sliimy "Womanizer"

Album Paint Your Face has no official US date

For a full listing of his songs + music videos
my favs are "Wake Up," "Womanizer" and "Pass the dutchie"
Follow him on Twitter @sliimy
Again Sliimy is a very interesting indiviual. so oddly artisitic :)

KIX: Kid Tested, Mothers Approved MY A$$

LAST Sunday, July 12, 2009 at around noon
I had an ANAPHYLAXTIC reaction

"Anaphylaxis is the term for a severe allergic reaction. I may begin within minutes (which it did), up to an hour after exposure to the substance you are allergic to ("allergen"). Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or stomach cramps, itchy rash (hives), swelling of the eyes, lips, face or tongue, wheezing, difficulty breathing and swallowing, throat tightness, chest pain or fainting

This kind of reaction can be life threatening."

According Banner Estrella Hospital (the hospital I was admitted to).

The Story
'Round 12 o'clock noon, I poured some KIX cereal into a cup and started eating some KIX business as usually. Normally I would of been at church on Sunday, but I had a paper to write and got hungry. And in about 5 mins of a couple handfuls of damn KIX cereal... I felt funny. I've never felt this way before in my life: my face was itchy so I was scratching it, my throat felt unusual and scratchy and I started wheezing [the symptoms of Anaphylaxis if you weren't paying attn] and after washing my mouth out for about 3 mins in the bathroom & looking in the mirror at my hive stuck face, I told my dad "I think I'm having an allergic reaction to Kix." I wasn't in a pretty good state.

So we immediately rushed to the hospital which was about a 15 min drive. All the while my symptoms are getting worse: just like the definition, my eyes, lips, face and tongue were swelling and swollen to the MAX! I looked grotesque... Lips bigger than Jigga man! (so not funny at the time tho) and my throat was tightening to the point where after 5 mins after leaving the house I couldn't talk or breath from my mouth (only my nose).

We get to the hospital, I'm taken immediately to ER where they gave me an oxygen mask because the Anaphylaxis was cutting off my air supply & without any air > I die. Even there they were surprised at how badly swollen my face & lips were. They shot me up with IVs in both arms, took my blood, got my vitals all that hospital stuff. I was given Benadryl (antihistamine to fight the allergy), Epinephrine to open my airways, raise my heart rate & other excitatory functions because technically my body was dying due to the lack of oxygen because of the Anaphylaxis. FYI Epinephrine is pure adrenaline & I was given Pepcid cuz all these drugs were gonna FUCK with my stomach and they didn't want me in gastric pain on top of dying.

Due to the adrenaline (Epinephrine) my heart was beating so hard & fast I honestly just wanted it out of my body. And due to the Benadryl, I was in and out of consciousness (Benadryl> causes drowsiness). After I stabilized a bit I text'd a few ppl (friends & fam) about how I was [didnt twitter a soul]. I had 2 visitors: my bestfriends Vero & Katelynn (KK). I remember talking to Veronica but honestly only remembering saying "hi" and "bye" with KK (so sorry it was the drugs haha). But I still had mad Twitter luv & shoutouts from the bestfriends @GL0, @veroooo, @frankenstein_23 and the homegirl @menaababyy22 & calls and texts I really could respond to being either drowzy (asleep knock'd up on meds) or couldnt speak.

Anyways long story short, I spent the night in ICU, was constantly being checked upon, always sleeping & watching the "ER" marathon oh the irony.

In and out of consciousness, I was unaware of the fact that I honestly could of had DIED! which my parents kept reiterating because they were so glad I was alive and well after being discharged Monday, July 13 2009 @ 1:30PM Mountain Time (I live in Phx).

Throughout the whole Anaphylaxtic episode I wasn't really scared or thought I was gonna die. No ply major plea bargains with God expect help me. I just wanted this to be fixed NOW and wanted to go home NOW! instead of spending the night there for monitoring.

Having this near death experience truly makes me appreciate life a whole lot more... more than even this blog can express.


They can KICK ROCKS for all I care

Rihanna "Te Amo"

Rihanna's new song
"Te Amo"
is causing quite the BUZZ!
mainly rumors that shes turned LESBIANO on us I mean to the other side ;)

"Te Amo" is a sweet lil love song with a reggae-latin calypso electro riddim. Its unconfirmed if this is her comeback single but after being in the whole Chris Breezy fiasco, the point of view in which the song is sung doesn't really love much for us (her fans) to wonder besides Chris Brown BEAT HER SO BAD he's made her resent all men and indubitably has made her Lesbian. (that was a summarization of posts & comments fans have made about the song)

I being an intellectual, truly love the song. The line, "I think it means I love you" means alot to me like a new found love shes unsure about but likes, compelled to even, but the language barrier has her a lil lost in translation. Its a great song feeling, phenomenal song!

Back to me being an intellectual, the song was originally singer/songwriter James Fauntleroy which is the reason why they song is written & sung from a man's point of view!

he gave it to RiRi/Rihi wanted the song cuz she liked it

case closed.

Enjoy the song & quit speculatin'

Houston...Where He At?

So I was scratching my eye
AND outta nowhere HOUSTON came to mind.

He had a single back in '04
"I Like That" featuring Nate Dogg, Chingy, & I-20

Don't know if his album, "Its Already Written", did well or not but then again, I NEVER didn't really follow his career. His hit came and went like him. I actually remember him more for his lil "SUICIDE ATTEMPT" after a night of preforming in LDN (London, England) back in '05.

Don't FRONT & ACT like you don't remember him for that too???
left eye is now a glass eye

Anyways.... Does anyone KNOW where he is or what he's doing?
just a lil curious cuz again I don't really care for him.

Chicken Noodle Soup for the STOOPID.

Remember the series?

Chicken Noodle Soup for the ...
(whoever was in need of it)

Well, I always envisioned making my own & it would be tentitively titled,
Chicken Noodle Soup for the STOOPID
For all the people out there who wonder if they're stupid or not. NOT stupid as in not smart cuz I would never call someone that but stupid as in ignorant, arragant, ppl who act before they think, ppl lacking common sense, reasoning, taking all things into consideration, low self-esteem, etc and all things necessary for life - in actuality it would be a self help book, a DIY (do it yourself) book.

I'd fill it with my saying, favorite quotes, beliefs, scriptures, favorite lyrics that speak volumes (i.e. "Don't be a HARD ROCK, when you really are a GEM" -Lauryn Hill), and just my insight & knowlegde on how to better yourself Mikeman-style.

So I guess, my book would not only be a self help book but also teach the ill-informed, ignorant, haters, lames, bitchassness infected, etc ppl to change their ways in drops of knowledge cuz "I'm not giving you brain, Im giving you knowledge" (Estelle)

My book will be balancing catering to the quote/unquote stoopid & just as a book of my teaching in ways to excel in life through my eyes, my life - "Koloring OUTSIDE the lines" is the new title!

"Koloring OUTSIDE the lines"

Hello [HELL NO] from the SCARY AS HELL black bug at my door

So Thursday (July 2, 2009)
Mom & I are coming home from picking me up form work.
As were arriving home we see something pretty big on the wall by the porch light?

(now if we can see it from pulling into the driveway its pretty big)

So were in the car saying "its a rutabaga," and some other stuff just playing around. I get out the car to see what it is cuz regardless, I have to open the door to get into the house.


I approach to see what it is - its a GIGANTIC BLACK ASS BUG
its like the size of my 2 fingers (and i got big long fingers)

its a BIG ASS BEETLE and that's all I know
Long black antennas, 6 long legs, wings for days, a sharp pincer & put the fear of idk what in me. TERROR was what cam over me...
Lord knows black ppl & bugs don't mix.
[And if you dont know I AM AFRAID OF BUGS]
It was "larger than LIFE," I have no idea where it came from? why it was there? NADA, but it scared the SH!T outta me.

So if there are any entomologists out there,
please enlighten me about the bug that greeted me at the door.

Frightfully yours,
