"These two words, nerd and geek, are frequently used interchangeably. However, this does a great disservice to all nerds and geeks who wear the badge of their respective anti-social lifestyle choice with pride. For this reason I feel that it is of the utmost importance that we correctly define the two terms.

A geek can best be defined as one who maintains an excessive fascination with a single thing or collection of things. I use the more general term thing only because there is a wide range of fascinations available which may qualified as geeky. Some have asserted that the object of obsession must be one that is not considered to be socially acceptable or commonly observed from the majority of inhabitants of any give society."

Joy Daily Radio Interview (Video)

This is an interview that I did along with the homies Product, King Kan, and Carty-Yeah.  This night was actually hilarious and it defines how hard we individually "grind" in order to get to a point in life where we feel we're successful.  Joy Daily is a journalist that has interviewed countless artists and celebrities in the hiphop world and hosts an underground radio show in New York City. Product knew Joy from their days in high school and set up a time where himself, King Kan, and Carty would appear on the show as guests to talk about the DC hiphop scene.  They invited me to come along with them due to their support of my work, and I'm very appreciative of that. We drove for nearly 4 hours in Product's two-door Scion (5 people deep, mind you) to get there.  There were even times where Kan and Corey (The 5th passenger) were arguing about who get to sit in the middle of 2 others in that tiny ass car where everybody's reduced to sardine status.  Lucky for us, we stopped at gas stations and stocked up on junk food and energy drinks. Myself, I copped this one and THIS SHIT RIGHT HERE?!? Greatness. I think I drank it too fast and caught heartburn from it...

I never tried the drink before, but it tasted more like spicy red Kool-Aid, and it's carbonated. Anyway, the show started at 10pm and we got kind of lost along the way on the Jersey turnpike (No GPS, just an IPhone navigation courtesy of Kan).  We left the car somewhere on 9th avenue and ran as fast as we could to the studio. The guard initially didn't want us to get in because the show was almost over, but they spared us, and Joy was gracious enough to extend her time to accommodate us despite another show starting right after hers.  We appreciate that immensely!  

Here's the video, but let it start at 1:21:20 and catch the co-host screaming "Oh my God, guests!!" followed by a resounding shout of "Men!" from the blonde.  Classic status.

Jay Pharoah

This is a young 22 year old comic by the name of Jay Pharoah that just recently signed to 'Saturday Night Live' due to his amazing skills of impersonations of celebrities.  I remember seeing this guy on BET whenever they do those totally contrived and off-balance skits of him being a postman delivering "The Package" to the BET Awards every year. What I didn't know was how talented and hilarious he actually is.  Here is a montage of his skills of impersonating Denzel Washington, Will Smith, Eddie & Charlie Muprhy and others.
