You Know You Need To Fix Your Toes Wearing Those Tight Shoes

As seen from Luxist.com and originally found at YogaPro.com

OK, let me be the first to admit that I have problems with my toes. They come in just like in the picture. For whatever reason, I just didn’t do anything about it, until I took a job that I had to be on my feet all day.

Now I am paying attention.

I got my toes closer to straight but I still got this bump on the side. I guess I may have to go to the doctor for that one.

Anyway, I am sure there are plenty of people (male and female) who will need this. I think I may get it once I confirm that it will actually be good for my feet.


Suunto X9i Wrist-Top GPS Computer Watch with Altimeter

What can make a watch for sports and working out cost almost 400 dollars? I guess when it has an Altimeter, Barometer, Compass, and GPS.

Here is the description of the watch:

The Suunto X9i GPS Watch tracks waypoints along your route, interfaces with digital mapping software, and even tracks speed, distance, altitude, and weather as you hike, climb, or ski. Pre-plan your routes by uploading data from digital maps or Google Earth, so you never lose your trail. Suunto made the GPS with an incredibly accurate 3-foot resolution and gave it the ability to show your current speed, distance traveled, distance to you next waypoint. It also has enough memory to store a ridiculous amount of information for future reference. Find your way through a whiteout, battle through brush to a remote peak, and know exactly how many vertical feet you ski in a season with this amazing GPS watch.

I truly doubt I would get anything like this, nor do I ever see me needing to use it. I guess knowing how high you have climed right there on the spot is ok… well if you want it, it will cost you exactly $349.99

Yeah, I Got The Purfect Pushup… AND IT WORKS!

I’ve been using it for a month now and I have to say my chest and triceps are getting a little beefy. No, I don’t look like the guy  in the picture though… somehow I feel that is implied that you will look like the guy on the picture after 30 days, but anyway I have to say it works. those 2 minute workouts are tough. I know I am out of shape, but DANG! I figure I would be able to do more push ups than the 14, 10, and 6 I do in a setting.

Well, I am on my way to being way built by next year. I started walking around the neighborhood to get my body ready for running around the track. I hope by next month i will actually see the track and be jogging on it. I want to join the gym I joined last year (and never went not once) to work on my weak knees and get rid of my gut. I actually want a 6 or even a 8 pack (never had one before no matter how hard I tried) so i will be working on that too.

And i really need to get a bike. When I was riding my bike, I think I was in the greatest shape of my life (too bad I was going through so much turmoil in my head at the time) so I need to get that bike!

I also need to get that traveling Perfect Pushup so I can do stuff at work (if possible). I’ll try to get you guys (all 100 of you who read this blog a day) up do date on what I’m doing when it comes to my workouts.

106 and Park Blues: What Happened To Free?

Saw this on The Life Files and I have the same question… what happened to my girl? She don’t have to be in the lime light for me, I just would like to know if she is ok.


NOT Grown and Sexy » What’s Wrong With This Picture???

From Bossip and All The Parties.com

This is not grown nor is it sexy. She is doing her thing though, no problem with that, but that’s stuff you keep on the private. How it made its way onto the interwebz I don’t know.

As a guy, I have to say that I am not impressed… now if she gave me a 3/4 view from the back then maybe that would work better. lol

I don’t know… maybe I’m just too into tech, fashion and things that will help make life better (of which includes staring my own business, understanding how money/finance works and politics).

ANYWAY, IN OTHER NEWS:

I will be posting allot in the coming weeks. some stuff you will see and others you won’t until sometime later. I got soe real cool plans for this blog. Mostly it will be a focus on tech and fashion, but will interject from time to time other issues that effect the grown and sexy of which is money, housing, family and politics (come on people, closed mouthes don’t get feed).

I hope you enjoy my nerdy tech and fashion blog… with an attitude.

Oh and here is the link to the original story on the picture at the top:

Bossip » Archive » Exclusive: Damon Dash Says Jay-Z Embarassed Their Movement, Was a Disloyal Partner

Many moons ago, Bossip worte a story and got an interview with Damon Dash (the same guy who supposidly got 500 Mil clothing deal with Racheal Roy and some big clothing comglomerate) and he talks about being mad salty at Jay-Z.

I didn’t listen to the interview yet so I guess I will write  more on it later, but for now here is the link from Bossip.com below:

Motley Fool Has CAPS… If you invest, this is a good tool

I just bumped into this as I was looking up stock p/e ratios from all the “tips” I was getting from the Fox Business Network… yes I said the Fox Business Network (black people do watch Fax here and there lol). When you look up a company, you get all the info you may need to decide whether or not you want to buy or not. Ok, ok… not ALL the info you need, but its allot; Stuff you can actually use. The best part is that it does some calculations of more than just the p/e ratio (p/e ratio basically tells you if the company is a bargain to buy or may be too expensive… your will need more info before buying or selling a stock or mutual fund but this helps). They also give you a 5 year look back of some of the ratios. 5 years is good, but 10 is better (step it up CAPS).

Between Motley Fools CAPS and Yahoo Finance, I think I will be ok. I know there are ALLOT more sites that can help with investing, but I need to check them out first (some I read in Benjamin Graham book The Intelligent Investor).


Gargantugame Pro Arcade Game… for those who got game

EQUALS A WHOLE LOT OF FUN

If you have an extra 4 Thousand to $4300 handing around your house (wallet) you can have this a piece of the past. Those who are grown and sexy have to remember going to the arcades. I do have one question though:

How is that anyway near related to a old school arcade game from the 80’s? I think Amazon needs to work on that related product algorithm. (By the way… I like this right here… not for me of course, for my hot looking woman.. yeah, that’s it)

You see it? Its also a computer!!! LOL Very good.


In The News: Bynum and Bishop Divorce, Will Smith Gets A Kiss, and is G-Unit Loosing A Buck?

Even people in the church get into the drama. Juanita Bynum and Bishop Weeks divorce is finalized. It has been well reported that Mr. Weeks gave a beat down on Mrs. Bynum. I am sure many people have all sorts of opinions about this but when it comes to family matters (wasn’t that a TV show? lol) you never know what is going on behind the scenes.

Its Big Willie Time

Will Smith, a person I am very interested in meeting and talking to, just did his thing at a preview for his new movie Hancock. It also looks like he got a sweet kiss that just maybe will get him in trouble lol. But about with that, the real question is when will Will Smith run for president?

Young Buck Not Getting His Bucks

Another Bossip find, it looks like YB has some problems with how he didn’t get his money yet (he is looking for his royalty checks). He blabs about what he feels is going on and why. I don’t pretend to know all of the info on this but from what I read from The Takeover fo (by La’Foy Orlando Thomas III), he would have to have sold more than 400,000 albums before he even saw a dime (and that all depends on what his contract said and how much money they gave him for his advance).
