10 Things things we should bring back in relationships

#1. Coming to the door to pick someone up.
I think we’ve all had it with the incredibly unromantic “here” text, and meeting up always seems to be more casual and platonic than the alternative. Of course, meeting someone from online or any circumstance like that would probably be the exception to this rule, but generally: the 30 seconds it takes to get out of a car or cab and knock on the door makes a huge difference.

#2. Trying to dress really nicely for a date.
“Nicely” means different things for different people, so I think it’s just a matter of putting effort into how you put yourself together to go out with someone. It’s not about wearing suits and petticoats again, but just realizing that, whether or not we like to accept it, appearance does count for something, and we should do our best to make sure that our appearance says something about us, in whatever way we’d like it to.

#3. Bringing flowers or other tokens of affection to the first date.

Now, many lucky ladies (and some men) I know get this regularly, and in fact, I have myself as well, but only ever with people I’d been dating for a while. I think there’s something to be said for bringing flowers to the door on your first date. It’s become uncool because it’s forward and it’s a gesture that confirms their interest, but we should definitely get past that idea and worry more about how we’re going to let someone know we really do care and appreciate that they want to spend time with us.

#4. Going dancing that’s not grinding on a grimy club floor.
Whatever happened to this? Dancing for the sake of dancing, like fun, not essentially sex on a dance floor dancing. What’s a better way to literally shake off nerves than seeing them bust a really dorky move on a dance floor? And the art of slow dancing has generally been lost, though I’ve been one to do it in my living room with my slightly coerced significant other, and I’ll tell you he’s said on numerous occasions it ended up being one of the most romantic nights we had together.

#5. Straightforwardly asking someone out and not calling it “hanging out.”
Or, as is very popular these days, “talking.” “Oh, we’re just… talking.” As in, seeing one another and speaking frequently as to get to know each other? So… dating? We’ve found these really convenient ways to skirt around the issue of having to put our hearts on the line, but honestly, it just ends up being messy and confusing for all parties involved. There’s no need to go back to the idea of courting or anything, unless you want to, but simply being direct about whether or not you’d like to go on a date with someone is a truly lost art, one that really shouldn’t be.

#6. Additionally, being clear about when you’re “going steady.”
Oh, the awkward, “so… are we… you know… what are we?” talk. Classic. We should go back to asking one another if the other person would like to “go steady” or something. There’s something about asking them if they’d like to rather than assuming that you are or aren’t anything that’s just very cute, in my opinion.

#7. Romantic gestures like writing poems.

Writing poems may not be for you, I know mine would look something like “Roses are red, violets are blue, I hate poetry but I love you.” I literally just made that up thank you please quote me when you inevitably post that gem on Tumblr. But seriously, like a handwritten letter in the mail or just surprising them with something you made even if it looks like the macaroni necklace you made when you were 5 is cute just because you tried and were thinking of them.

#8. Turning electronics off and just being with one another.
I’m not sure there is anything worse than the person who picks up their phone and starts staring at it in the middle of dinner, or at any point while you’re together and having a conversation. I’m not anti-technology here (hello, I work for the Internet) but I am saying that there comes a time to turn it off and disconnect and remember what actually matters. People.

#9. The general concept of asking permission for things.
It used to be principle for people to say: oh, when can I see you? Or, when could I call you? Rather than just assuming they can at any point. But I think that old concept could be applied to our modern world by just assuming that, unless told otherwise, you should ask permission to you know, touch them anywhere, take them out, call them at a certain time, etc. Once you’re in a relationship these things usually don’t require asking anymore, but some do, especially when it comes to sexuality. I once knew a person who said that they asked permission before so much as touching a girl’s thigh, and that always stuck with me.

#10. Not assuming sex is to be had at any point in time.
Now, I’m certainly not saying it should go back to being a taboo that’s unspoken of, but we certainly shouldn’t expect it from someone on the third date, on the first date, because they’re being flirty, because you know they’re into you, or even because they agreed to go out with you. A date does not have to be a precursor to sex, and you shouldn’t be disappointed if it isn’t because you should never assume that it will be. It depends on the person you’re with and what they want to do.

What do you think, will these old-fashioned ways come back in style? If you liked these ideas, share them with your friends and family. Maybe one of them has a date this weekend!

Godzilla Movie Review (A Kings Arrival Is Never Silent)


Let me put my cards on the table.

"I am a huge Godzilla fan. So much so that I took my father out to see it with some passes i got from IGN last Tuesday and I was very nostalgic."

I was one of those kids who wasted their youth watching "Creature Double Feature" smackdowns between Godzilla and his arsenal of enemy combatants such as Mothra and Ghidorah. There was something about seeing these behemoths stomp Tokyo to dust that made me absolutely giddy: the primal doomsday terror of a beast created by A-bomb radiation, the model-shop ingenuity, the laughable man-in-a-rubber-suit campiness. It's been 16 years since Hollywood nearly soured that love affair, thanks to Roland Emmerich's 1998 atrocity. And I was hopeful that the splashy new 3-D reboot might rekindle the old flame.

Unfortunately, Gareth Edwards' "Godzilla" feels like two movies Scotch-taped together. In one, Bryan Cranston plays a nuclear engineer with a tragic past who's racing to expose the truth about a series of seismic anomalies, Aaron Taylor-Johnson is his estranged soldier son, and Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins are a pair of exposition-spouting scientists trying to keep straight faces while talking about electromagnetic pulses and mankind's hubris. In the other, mammoth CG beasts knock the snot out of one another. Only one of these movies is any good. Thankfully, it's the monster one.

Edwards, whose only previous film was 2010's low-budget "Monsters," has been given a quick call-up to the majors with the reported $160 million "Godzilla." He doesn't seem too interested in his actors — they're more plodding than their reptilian costars and you don't care about a single one of them — but Edwards does know how to fashion some serious monster mayhem. Taking a cue from "Jaws," he wisely delays Godzilla's appearance, building suspense. In movies like these, it's all about the slow tease and the big reveal. As an appetizer, though, he gives us a pair of ''MUTOs'' (massive unidentified terrestrial organisms) — a male and female duo of giant, Giger-esque creatures with sleek pincer jaws that resemble humongous staple removers. The MUTOs, who arrive on the scene after leveling a Japanese nuclear reactor, care about two things: feeding on the radiation that created them and mating with each other in...San Francisco of all places. Tony Bennett would be proud.

When Godzilla first lumbers on screen to hunt the MUTOs and ''restore balance,'' he feels both nostalgically familiar and excitingly new. As big as a Sheraton and with a shriek that rumbles your insides, he appears beefier and meaner than you remember. But looks can be deceiving. Godzilla is humanity's only hope for destroying the MUTOs. Or as Watanabe's Dr. Serizawa says, ''Let them fight!'' And fight they do, in an epic clash that turns the Bay Area to rubble. Unlike last year's disappointing Pacific Rim, Godzilla actually shows us its monsters without a scrim of rain and a cloak of darkness. And the thrill of the film is getting the chance to fetishize their sheer size and physicality as they rip through power lines and demolish buildings with their lashing tails. In its handful of moments like these, "Godzilla" almost makes you feel like a kid again. Grade: B-

#2 Artist To watch in 2014...Live

We getting close to the end of this journey. So far we veiwed 18 artist to watch for in 2014. Are number 2 artist to watch in 2014 is Live also known as Live Bradshaw.

The 23 year old Harlem native is considered by many as a raw genius; with the gift of being a fast learner Live was able to teach himself the fundamentals of songwriting, beatsmithing, and recording without professional instruction. After almost 8 years of experimentation through trial and error along with many listeners, he has agreed that he’s perfected his craft, he reiterates the fact that his primary focus is to become better with time and desires to expand his craft.

With tongue tying wordplay, abstract style, and futuristic production makes him rather unique from the standard sense of today’s music artist. Songs such as “Belong to Me” and “Denzel Washington” reveals his creative edge as an artist and producer and explores his unorthodox style. Live is no stranger to the grind and has put out an array of songs and projects over the last 3 years; most notable are his Black Weather (2011) and Un Dieu, Un Entendre (2013) mixtapes. 

Bradshaw is currently working on his directorial debut with a series of vlogs, commercial ads, and short films, he’s also working on acting debut, landing roles in a few independent films. Bradshaw says that his main focus is to gross enough money to be able to acquire the necessities and resources that could allow him to prosper without the assistance from a major label.  He is also working on branding his “$7Y” entity via clothing apparel and short film. 

Known for his consistency, Live  has been working on new music and is planning to release a 77 track project (not yet titled) exploring various events from his life that occurred over the last 7 years of his life, a collaborative project with Brooklyn artist Smalls titled “Hashtag Wednesday”, and a collaborative EP with fellow Harlem artist Mike Mitch entitled “Mfalme”.

I Like Mike Epps but Why Kevin Hart Fatality Ethered him tho....???

Mike Epps called Kevin Hart overrated in a radio interview this morning and let’s just say Kev didn’t take to that too lightly.
During a chit-chat with K104 in Dallas, Mike said the Think Like A Man Too star is the most overrated comedian in the game right now. “In this business right here, sometimes marketing can be bigger than talent,” he said. “This business is not about being funny. This business is about being forced on people. You can be forced on people and be really, really funny. If the business was based on being funny none of these suckers would be in it.”

When Kevin found out about Mike’s diss, he went in on Twitter. “Just heard @TheRealMikeEpps called me “Overrated” on the radio this AM! I missed it bcuz I was on set “WORKING”do u remember what that is?” he shared with his 10.5 million followers. “Don’t talk 2 me until u start selling out ARENA’S @TheRealMikeEpps if ur shows aren’t sellin & u need sum help maybe I will send out a TWEET.”

In response, Mike wrote a series of incoherent tweets. “@KevinHart4real tell everybody that you sacrificed your man hood for fame nigga and you beg me to be open up fo for me before you got on,” he rambled. “If it wasn’t for the social media @KevinHart4real would not be present he was forced on you fans trough the web your gone to realize.”
“I got this ninja @eppsie so damn m
ad right now….he can’t even talk right,” Kevin fired back. “Can somebody please TRANSLATE this.”

Lil Wayne The Carter V Debut Single "Believe Me Feat. Drake"

Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter V season has officially begun. After using a couple of the world’s biggest athletes to help tease his upcoming LP, Weezy partners with Drake to release “Believe Me,” the first single off of Tunechi’s much-anticpated (possibly final) album.

The slow-rolling and pulsating track, which was produced by Boi-1da and Vinylz, hit the Internet early Saturday morning (May 3).

With a number of notable collaborations already under their belt, the two Young Money spitters once again putting their impeccable rap skills on display. But don’t take our word for it, listen for yourself and sound off in the comments. Tell me what ya'll think of the new track and do you think this will be Wayne's last album???
