In The Trunk: Saigon - The Greatest Story Never Told

So, my youngin @youngpdot hit me via twitter and asked about Saigon posts. I brought up the new "mixtape" and he didn't know what I was talking about. Probably though, because Saigon doesn't have a new mixtape out...what I was thinking about was an album. My bad...

I'm not a big Saigon fan, primarily because I wasn't really feeling the way he snaked my main man Turtle in the earlier seasons of hit HBO television series, Entourage. However, The Greatest Story Never Told is a solid album. The production is tight work and Saigon brings an energy like no other. Definitely worth the listen.

So, if you haven't heard it yet, or you thought it was a mixtape, or you just want it for your collection...


Video: Tiger Woods Spits On Golf Course

The European Tour has issued a fine to superstar golfer Tiger Woods for spitting on the green of the 12th hole on Sunday.

Tiger took to his Twitter account to apologize for his actions...

In the final round of the Dubai Desert Classic, Woods crouched over and spit on the 12th green after missing a par putt.

"Disgusting, what he has just done there," said Sky Sports commentator Ewen Murray. "But there are some parts of him that are just arrogant and petulant. Somebody now has to come behind him and maybe putt over his spit. It does not get much lower than that."

Murray also described the spitting incident as "one of the ugliest things you will ever see on a golf course."


Chris Brown's F.A.M.E. Album Cover Art

Pictured above is the cover artwork for Chris Brown's upcoming 4th studio album F.A.M.E. which was announced to have a set release date for Tuesday March 22.


Can you imagine what would happen if the entire team, coaches, and 10 officials die at the same time?

That's exactly what happened fifty years ago today. On February 15, 1961, Sabena flight 548 crashed en route to Brussels, Belgium en route from New York City killing the entire United States Figuring Skating team. They were on their way to the World Championships in Prague, Czechoslovakia. The crash was the first fatal accident involving a Boeing 707 in regular passenger service, 28 months after it was placed into commercial use. All 18 athletes of the 1961 U.S. figure skating team and 16 family members, coaches, and officials were among the fatalities. There were 54 fatalities in all.

The world team traveling party was recently inducted into the hall of fame, but not without eliciting emotions in the U.S. figure skating community.

Video: Lady Gaga On Jay Leno

I believe Lady Gaga is the hardest working person in showbiz. I thought this interview was kind of funny in a "Gaga" type of way.

Check out the interview with Jay Leno yourself...in addition to the pictures with Willow Smith at the Grammy's...

El Debarge replaced by Musiq Soulchild on Kem tour

El Debarge has officially checked himself into rehabilitation for substance abuse or more specifically, Crack and Heroin. So much for his come-back tour. Yet the show must go on! He will be replaced by Musiq Soulchild. In a press release, Debarge stated, "I hate to disappoint my fans but it is necessary for me to take the time to work on me so that I may continue to share my music and my story with everyone."

Debarge is a legend so I'm sure his fans will support and embrace him when he returns.

Get Your FightSticks

Okay everyone with the release of Marvel Vs Capcom 3 right here It is my duty as the resident game head to properly educate you on the controllers you need to pull off the best combos the game has to offer.

1st up is the basic fightpad

nice entry into the market, offers tighter controls and ease of movement, but they tend to burn out and not last very long. I advise you to save your money on this and at least start at our next entry.

The Basic fightstick

Ok this is a step up and it will allow for better combo controls and more accurate button presses, but the parts in the stick are not the best and they tend to burn out as well from much use. My advice is to get this as a company stick. lol

It is also as note that this stick can be upgraded with the best parts and customized to fit your gaming needs, but for all the customization you will put into it, just get right from the start and get the king of them all:

The King of all the fighting game controllers. This stick is amazing(I have one myself) I am an old school gamer so I can say it is not as tight as I remember the arcade sticks being when I was a child, but trust the controls are tight on this. If you have been playing with the control pad for some time now, YOU WILL have to relearn the game to use the stick. Trust me though this is worth the hassle when you can SPD someone from half a screen away with a quick and precise flick of the wrist and press of the fierce button.

Let me 1st say all of these come in different models and releases based upon the games, and different revisions or color changes. All are the same except for a slight change here or there. All in all though these are the best tools to help you hone your fighting game skills and hopefully one day you too can live out your Justin Wong or Daigo fantasies in Street Fighter 4 or Marvel vs Capcom.

Good Gaming Everyone
