The C's will soon be hoisting up a 17th(!) banner in Beantown. The Celts put together the perfect pieces to solve their puzzle: Cassel, Posey, PJ, and o yeah Garnett and Jesus. All those dudes have paid their dues (specially PP for sticking in Boston for 10 years) and have earned themselves a well deserved ring. It's great to be a Bostonian these days...

Though the scheduling by the festival heads wasn't the best (I was supposed to miss Talib Kweli to go see Kanye, but that turned into a whole other fiasco), this past weekend was 80 solid hours of almost non-stop music.
I missed the beginning of Rilo Kiley's performance to see The Raconteurs (Jack White's other band aside from the White Stripes) cap off their incredible show. Lupe was on stage 30 mins. before Kanye was scheduled to hit the stage, but Yeezy failed to hit the stage until 2 hours after his scheduled time (thanks Pearl Jam).
I finally got to see one of my favorite groups play live: Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings (old-school funk and soul band), and I got to see BB King play an hour and a half set that nearly changed my life.
I really wish my camera wasn't "confiscated" by a fellow festival goer, though, because I had some decent pics of Lupe, Kanye's crazy set and Metallica (not on the same stage, though that would've been awesome).
More stories from the weekend later in the week.

3G IPhone. Phone has it all-widescreen iPod, Phone, and wireless interent. Like many of us (actually all) here at the Boogie, if we had the cash we'd cop it in a hot second. For the fortunate who are able to, this device is due out July 11th

I can't take it any longer. Just a few moments ago I couldn't resist myself and streamed-not downloaded-Love Bomb... its crazy! I'm not promoting you to down their tracks, but i assure you in just a few clicks you will find it and other snippets. Come June 10th (or the lucky Germans who its already available to OR to the fortunate Euros who get it a day early) N.E.R.D. will be the much needed savior to music(sorry Plies and Dwayne). It's not that hip-hop has been on a drought with albums like Finding Forever, the Cool and oh yeah Graduation-to name just a few- to have blessed our airwaves. Its just that this album will surely bring back a much needed freshness to the music industry. I thought In Search Of... was the best of the 2 albums via the N3RDS, but this album can surely exceed both. I indulge you all to cop this album come this Tuesday. Even if you normally don't buy CDs or simply think the Neps have enough money as it is, at least buy it for the credit sheet it comes with pictured above lol.Its dope. Support music and buy Seeing Sounds!!!
Yes, the man featured above is indeed Nasir Jones, and not Complex style critic (and rapper) Kanye West. Apparently someone convinced the man to go a "little" out of his boundaries for this edition of Complex's Fashion Spread. Personally, I'm down with Nas just the way he is, and don't wanna see him converge over to the back-packer/'80's-esque look. Still, the fits featured in there are dope, and would look great on other artists such as that college dropout guy.

This kid is an idiot, no other way to describe it. How embaressed do you think he was after he got pushed off. Plus, why was he just standing their smiling when he got on stage. Dance fat boy, DANCE! He kind of looks like he has down syndrome which, if he does actuallt have down syndrome, will lead me to apologize and ask for forgiveness.

Complete with Ken & Ryu and the dreaded Zangeif (thank you Lupe), this will give every SF II fan a new reason to burn bloody images of superpowered gore into our cornea's.

The Penguins, down 3-1 in the series and up 2-0 in the game at one point, made the series a bit more interesting as they forced 3 OVERTIMES, after making it 3-3 with 35 seconds left in regulation, to make the series go back to the Steel City for game 6. Gary Stillman, the NHL commish, may have breathed a significant sigh of relief as he watched his sport be saved by one game.
Its a shame that, we as Americans (don't deny it), don't appreciate this sport as much as we should, especially when the players are as passionate as they are. When the ratings come out after the series is over, they will be sure to disappoint, but this one game may save hockey in this country.... for what that's worth.
Oh, and if you don't know who Don Cherry is, here's the sharp-dressed man himself:
And yes, that suit is real.
