Doctor's Advocate leaked and it's a monster. This is one of the best rap releases this year, no doubt. The Game takes what mad The Documentary so enjoyable and duplicates on his sophomore LP. Great beats for the most part (no Cool n' Dre collabo sadly) and The Game doin just enough lyrically to make this album worthwhile.
The new Copeland record that dropped today, Eat, Sleep, Repeat has gotten a few spins as I'm liking the melancholy work of this release.
Six Feet Under is being re-run on Bravo on Monday nights at 8 central, I couldn't be happier. Also, The Wire is going to be shown on BET in the future, now I'm flippin' out.

Saw The Prestige tonight and enjoyed it thoroughly. Nolan can basically do no wrong and this flick does nothing to alter that statement. It's dark, mysterious and wonderfully acted. I think Bale should just do Nolan movies for the rest of his career (unless they remake Newsies and Nolan isn't at the helm) because they just seem to click. The plot is great with some serious twists. I don't feel like going on and on about it, just check it out.
Some tracks from The Game's new record have been leaking recently and the one with Nas is prettay, prettay, prettay good.
(I'm also kind of diggin' the new My Chemical Romance record, shhhhhhh don't tell)

The third track to leak from Kingdom Come, Lost Ones, popped up on the internets today. Now I'm diggin this one. Kingdom Come was good and Show Me What You Got had me worried, but this has rekindled my excitement for the new album. It's laid back and has Hov goin' at somebodies, I think I get some Dame shots outta this and then just Jay on some this is my life kinda ish.

I haven't posted for way tooo long, i'm lame.
I saw Okkervil River last Wedensday night and they were amazing.
I haven't stopped listening to Boys & Girls in America since I got it until today when D'angelo popped up on my itunes and I just listened to Brown Sugar all the way through. Now I just really want a girlfriend, whatever happened to D'angelo anyways?
I saw the Departed tonight and it's awesome, but I kind of expected awesomeness. Wahlberg is simply the man, he's not really stretching himself in his role here but he's just so damn entertaining. Plus Alec Baldwin's in it and you can't go wrong there. I enjoyed DiCaprio's performance alot too and ended being impressed with Damon, I always want to not like him in movies but usually end up liking his roles anyways. The movie itself is just action from the beginning to the end. It's so intense and doesn't let down for a second. Go see this, it's the best movie I've seen in the theater in I don't know how long.
The Wire tonight had to be one of my favorite episodes ever. The whole turn with Randy thinking the people Marlo's crew were killing turned into zombies was priceless.
