The Move Is Made

To my peeps from that still cometh here at thehype.wordpress.com or is of the old RSS subscriberz, I have moved my ish to a self-hosting thingy at the real REAL realz THEHYPEGUY.COM (that new feed is http://thehypeguy.com/?feed=rss2) Come on over and let’s party like it’s 1992!

(PS: Word up to Matt Watson for all the technotron advice and making me suggesting an update post 🙂 )

(PS v2.0: I don’t know why I’m using The Land Before Time pic here… I guess they made a “journey” or something. Actually, while we’re on the subject, what’s the current edition of TLBT? Part 46? Where they do meth? Oh, shit, rambling again.. anyways.. jump over there folks!)

(PS3–fuck Sony– : goodbye sweet tit that is the free wordpress.com’s service…)

With many thanks to the notorious J.C.N. that oversees FanHouse along with Mottram, there’s an MTV interview with Prince, and he reveals what we’ve all wanted to know for the past 4 years … he is actually a balla 4 realz:

Sway: I wanted to tell you this story first: I was watching the Dave Chappelle show, and Eddie Murphy’s brother Charlie Murphy does this thing on it called “True Life Hollywood Stories,” and he told this story that he was hanging out with you at your house, and you guys were listening to music, and then you came up with the idea to all go play basketball. He said they didn’t have any clothes, so you got them shorts and T-shirts, but he said that your crew showed up to the basketball court with the same wardrobe [as you wear onstage]. High heels, suited and booted. Is that true?

Prince: That part’s not true. But the whupping’s true.

Sway: The whupping’s true. So you’ve got basketball skills?

Prince: A little bit.

Sway: Yeah? What you got? A crossover dribble? Or a jump shot?

Prince: We didn’t call it crossover back then.

Sway: What’d you call it?

Prince: Just speed.

Thank god for that piece so I can run this geniusness clip again…

Zach Galifianakis is just totally awesome. (psst: it’s an inspired send off for Kanye West’s Can’t Tell Me Nothin. This is just as, if not better than, Alanis Morrisett’s version of My Humps—incredible)

In otter news:

Finally a Christmas where we won’t have 10 000 cameras on Shaq and Kobe just as they shake hands. On one hand, yay! On the other, while it’s LeBron vs. Wade… it’s still the painfully unwatchable Cavs. I’d call this a wash.

Around the Unrelatedness, we feel there’s a need to have a sense of style and taste (we are of course typing this on a gold-encrusted keyboard while eating delicious dolphin meat). That is why we feel it is in our interest to educate the youngins out there so that we can embrace a better world in the future (where plastic forks are outlawed due to a new chapter in the Bible declaring that it is a sin to humanity! true story!)

Okay, where the hell did we go… oh yes, style and taste and all that. Sooo, we now want you to be familiar with NBAOU’s official Snobbery Watch Measuring-Thing™ (*cough* it’s a scale *double-cough*) for the NBA!

Snob Watch? Why…?
It’s basically a contrived device we thought up 5mins ago that lets us hate on someone or something about the NBA without any real justifiable reason. Thus, being a snobby bastard

By the Great Drums of Dave Grohl, this is one ugly baby.

The size of the baby – around 4ft 3in tall and weighing 110lb – suggests she was between six months old and a year when she died. There are no clues about the cause of death, although there were signs she had been involved in a skirmish with a predator or another mammoth.

‘The mammoth had no defects, except that its tail was bitten off,’ said Alexi Tikhonov, of the Zoological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, who helped carry out a preliminary examination of the creature.

‘In terms of its state of preservation, this is the world’s most valuable discovery.’

You know what else is this world’s most valuable discovery? You mom. BURN! Okay, that was fucking stupid. But I was just somewhat enthralled with recent stories of big guys and the NBA that I had to make the worst connect-the-dots type thing with a 10, 000 year old mammal.

Emerging DNA technologies have already allowed some scientists to consider resurrecting the mammoth. (Read about the resurrection debate.)

No word on whether scientists are considering resurrecting the other mammoths: Shawn Kemp, Eddie Curry, Tractor Traylor, Shaq and Antoine Walker.

Yo what up my dawgs. Adam Silver up in this mutha. He he he, always wanted to talk in that “kidz talk”. You know who I am, the Number 2 of the NBA head office. Shit’s serious. Anyways, I was somehow looped into this internet thing… dunno what they call this… blo-gue? Well, I offer thee my thoughts on the blockbuster that is Transformers, here we go:

HEeEeeeeeeLLLLL yesssss.

Like, oh. my. god. Did you see…and the…with his big…and…holy fucktown! GIANT eff-in ROBOTS!

Okok, calm down to level 3 now… it was the shiz man. Lemme tell you, when Optimus Prime finally showed up, I think I cried. And pooped. I think I cried and pooped at the exact same time. I also I think I’m in love with someone in the movie. No, not Megan Fox, I mean, sure she’s got that weird tattoo ink thing going for her all over her bod, but no, you know who I’m talking about.

BumbleBee man.

That kid had my heart from the very beginning. I mean, (MINOR SPOILER ALERT) he helped save a kid life from loser-dom by getting his dad to purchase him, possibly the best type of life-saving, as I have been told. He puts on apropriate yet humourous 80s pop music that made the audience laugh. And best of all, he has a mask that, get this: looks like a bumblebee! How can you not love him?

Oh sure, we can go on and on about Optimus, Megatron, Starscream, but for reals yo, BB’s the man, er, robot.

As for the rest of the flick. I think it made me want to do the following things, in this order:

1) buy a GMC vehicle
2) have sex with one of the many weapons from the US military
3) randomly yell out “ree-ree-row-rit-ree” and pretend like I’m transforming into a car

So, hopefully this review helped you out. It sure made my life happier, to you Bumble Bee!


I love you

As this … undead life of an offseason drags on, it’s pretty hard to think about the league when the season is months away. What’s the Word on the Streetz on how folks cope?
