rap bracket

Vibe is taking your votes on the Best Rapper Ever....bracket style.
Q-Tip vs. Kool Keith?
Gee, let me think.

Vote dude. Please Don't let Eminem win again.
Sadly this started like 10 days ago and things don't look good.

Vibe Says:

It's time to put all the chips on the table. Who has the best lyrics? The flyest style? The dopest hooks? You decide.

Last year, you told the world who THE BEST RAPPER ALIVE was. Looking back, it's no surprise our June/July 2009 cover star Eminem won the whole shebang: He's one of the best-selling rappers ever and a genius on the mic. Now we're answering calls for a recount, and thinking even bigger. It's time to place your votes for hip hop's best MC ever. We've included legendary voices from the Golden Age, crucial stars from the Platinum Era, and today's Twittering titans. To accommodate the scope of more than 30 years of rap greatness, we expanded our pool this year and started with 128 candidates. Each Monday, we'll progress to a new round, eliminating rappers based on your votes and your votes alone. Every visitor to can vote once per 12 hours. After seven weeks, we'll know which MC you've named THE BEST RAPPER EVER. Vote today!

breaking news

I found the best burger I've ever had in my entire life.

Umami Burger.

The description for their signature burger is simply "you'll crave this one".
Dude, they are not screwing around.
The minute I was done with it I experience a confusing mixture of ecstasy and sadness.
The sad just came from the fact that the burger was gone and the realization that an unhealthy new addiction has started.

Go there.

You won't be sorry.

I'm super on-board with the anti-IMAX theater war that has been made public by Aziz Ansari.
I too fell victim when I went to see Star Trek.

Please read his rant. It's great.
And then read his Twitter page- everyone has shit to say about IMAX. Mostly that we all want our 5 bucks back.

Damn the Man! Save the Empire!

thoughts on Away We Go:

why is this being released in June? why isn't it at Toronto?
why can't boys be like that in real life? allison janney is amazing, actually the entire supporting cast is.
please let this at LEAST get a nomination for the screenplay. i love sam mendes.
it hurts how much i love john krasinski. i am very proud of myself for no fainting when he was a foot away from me.
but seriously. this movie is fantastic.
and cameron crowe was in the audience and i briefly talked to him on the way out.
holy shit.

i just got this email from Virgin America~


Don’t be surprised if you see a Green Fairy on board your next Virgin America flight.

Virgin America is delighted to be the first Airline to offer Absinthe in-flight.

Le Tourment Vert authentic French absinthe is now available on all Virgin America flights. Try our Mile High Cocktail, a Tourmenting and satisfying blend of Le Tourment Vert Absinthe, sprite and lemons shaken and served over ice. Bon Voyage!

Is it just me or is this bizarre/fantastic?
Keep in mind I have never had the stuff before and I know it's not the hallucinogenic-Toulouse Lautrec crazy sauce that it once was...and it's no longer illegal everywhere....but still.
In flight?

It's MAY already. What the what?
