Aziz and Diddy : Ciroc Smooth Campaign

Posted in Comedy, Comics, Hip-Hop, Rappers, YouTube Classics with tags , , , , , , , on June 7, 2010 by mattyfresh697400

When Ciroc enlisted Diddy to take a piece of the company and become the face of the brand and Chief Marketing officer, they clearly knew what they were doing.

Diddy is fully back in the public conciousness,  he has  a new album with his group DIRTY MONEY, the cover of the latest issue of XXL, a starring role in the new Jonah Hill movie “Get Him To The Greek” Diddy also recently got back in the management game and took over managerial duties for the teflon don RICKY ROSS…and of  course this wildly insane new ad campaign  for CIROC with my main man Aziz Ansari.

Now I have I yet to see “GREEK”  but all the reviews say Diddy is in top comedic form and if this commercial is any indication, Diddy might be doing stand up before too long.

Pure Genius!!

The Man Purse Debate …continues….The IPAD Saves the Day!!

Posted in Apple, Comedy, Print Media, The Hangover, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on April 27, 2010 by mattyfresh697400

Shouts out to Ben Ullman for putting me up on this great Gizmodo article,

Does the iPad Make Man Purses Okay Now?

The iPad isn’t crazy big. But it’s too big for a pocket. That means one thing: a bag. Not too big of a bag. More like a purse.

I have no inherent distaste for the man purse.* In fact I’ve been waiting for years for my literally closeted obsession with small bags to become socially acceptable. If the arbitrating metric for men’s accessories is utility without gaudiness, the man purse falls comfortably within acceptable boundaries. It lacks the practicality of the backpack, perhaps the most versatile option, but doesn’t dress down a suit. Nothing looks more tacky than a man in business attire with a backpack.

The larger options, attaché cases or messenger bags, are excellent compromises when one must carry a laptop. But one of the beautiful things about the iPad is that it can ably replace a laptop in many situations. Sitting in a coffee shop browsing the web. Reading an ebook on a train. Watching pornography in a hotel room. To slip the relatively small iPad into a laptop-sized bag is inelegant.

Of course this presumes that we’ll want to carry around our iPads at all times, just in case. Our New York contingent claims they’ll rarely take their iPads out of their tiny apartments, content to use them as coffee table portals to their media. Why take an iPad out on the town when an iPhone does nearly the same stuff? A fair point for city dwellers, yet I would challenge with this: What about keyboards?

One of the most exciting thing about the iPad for writers is that we’ll finally be able to use 2002’s most exciting technology with our Apple portable: the Bluetooth keyboard. Even if Apple allows the iPhone the same Bluetooth keyboard access as they do for iPad—a dream come true for this dork—you’ll want to keep a small keyboard on your person. That brings us right back to the man purse.

Although I’m not sure how much you can read into the pre-release offerings from iPad accessory manufacturers, clearly at least a few of them have considered the man purse—or more commonly, “satchel”—as the optimal size for toting an iPad. Even the cases sold without straps are only a couple of D-rings away from being dashing little man purses.

I’ll cop to being too concerned with the question. I’m the sort of man who has nearly as many bags of varying sizes as he does things to put in them. I’ve been in search of the perfect leather satchel for years, resigned that I’ll never find perfection until I pick up the awl and punch and captive-bolt pistol and craft my own

I’ve refrained from the man purse over the years primarily because its primary proponents tend to look like total twats. “What do you have in the purse that you can’t keep in your pockets, Nancy?” A phone in the pocket, never the belt holster—and a huge bag for everything else.

But maybe the mainstream success of the iPad—I’m thinking it’s a lock, if that weren’t already clear—will finally give the varnish of utility to the man purse, finally making it acceptable for even the sweatiest sweatpants stallion to toss his shit into a tiny ballistic nylon satchel and get back to the really important things in life: arguing whether using Apple products in the first place make you look like a total homo.**..

The Man Purse Debate

Posted in Accessory, Comedy, Fashion, Soundbites, The Hangover, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on April 27, 2010 by mattyfresh697400

"Its A Satchel"

So I am walking into my building yesterday and I see one of my door guys who I always talk to. The conversation is pretty standard for tenant/ building personnel relationships, Sports and women (not  always in that order depending on who happens to be in the lobby)

Yeah I Rock it...so what????

But as I am beginning to make my way for the elevator my buddy/door man says……

“Whats with the man purse?”

Now my very VERY first thought was of Zach Galifiankis from “THE HANGOVER”  :

Click the link to hear the audio

Indiana Jones Wears One

Phil: You’re not really wearin that are you?
Alan: Wearing what?
Phil: The man purse. You’re actually gonna wear that or are you guys just fuckin with me?
Alan: It’s where I keep all my things. I get a lot of compliments on this. Plus it’s not a man purse, it’s called a sachel. Indiana Jones wears one
Phil: So does Joy Behar.

But then I started thinking does my Louis V messenger bag look like a man purse, is it actually a man purse?

Now I am pretty comfortable with my ability to rock the LV and pull it off just fine , but clearly the haters are everywhere, even in my own building. Clearly there is an ongoing  debate regarding the Man Purse because I found a website dedicated to the subject .

Oh then I realized this site has a very clever name particularly for baseball freaks like me, the site is called THE SATCHEL PAGES (Satchel Paige being the oldest rookie to ever play major league baseball and one of the earliest players to break the color barrier

But I digress.

Please note the only reason I wrote this post was so I could use the word SATCHEL and reference “THE HANGOVER”

Thanks for listening.

Case of The Mondays….

Posted in Comedy, Movies, YouTube Classics with tags , , , , , on April 26, 2010 by mattyfresh697400

IF ONLY IT WAS THE SUMMER OF GEORGE

Monday + Rain  = Depression.

You dont need to be Stephen Hawking or even Eloise Hawking (shouts to my LOST Fans out there) to figure this one out, Gloom and doom. Rainy mondays often make me feel like pulling a Constanza and having Connie the carpenter carve out a little nap area complete with cup holder and alarm clock shelf, so I can catch a couple zees at the office.

Office Space really nailed this one

Waiter : “Maybe i can get you guys something to nibble on, like some PIZZA SHOOTERS, SHRIMP POPERS or EXTREME FAJITAS”

Ron Livingston : “No, Just some Coffee”

Waiter: “Sounds like a case of the Mondays”

Have a great week people!
