Yeah, I know I'm late on doing a "Flashing Lights" post but whatev.
If you've been under a rock for, what, the past two weeks, you might not know that Kanye has a vid out for his most AWEFUCKIN'SOME song, "Flashing Lights". There's a big kerfluffle about it because the video ends a full minute before the recorded song does.
Then there's also the matter of ol girl...well, if you don't wanna know what happens, click the X now!
One last chance...
Ok! Ol' girl in the video (who has a pair of the best tittays in my opinion) drives out to the desert, takes off her clothers, sets them ablaze (btw, the thing that's blurred out is a can of lighter fluid. Odd, right?), walks back to the open trunk where we see a bound and gagged Kanye. She caresses his face like she luhs him, pulls out a shovel and...
No, she doesn't bury him...
SHE STABS HIM WITH THE DAMN THANG!!
And that's it. No...seriously! The vid ends with the words "FLASHING LIGHTS" in red. Done. Finito. Fin.
Personally, I like it but it left a LOT of fans dissatisfied. I can see why. "Flashing Lights" was/is one of the most anticipated songs off of Graduation. Isn't it possible, however, that the song is so loved by so many people that no matter what 'Ye did, a LOT would be pissed off? Damned if you do, triple damned if you don't, I guess.
Anyway, there's a lot of speculation as to what the title refers to. Here are the ones I've heard:
The lights on the car in the video
A club (That was more before the video came out, though)
A runway (Same as above)
A warning, as in "Why didn't I see flashing lights (warning signs) that something was wrong with this chick?".
I don't really have a theory. It could be anything from the things mentioned above to an ambulance, an airport, a lighthouse, whatever. The general consensus concerning the video seems to be that (story-wise) the woman is Kanye's girlfriend and she shovels him to death for some kind of betrayal, be it cheating or leaving her behind for the limelight. Sounds like a good storyline. I have a few of my own, though...
Keeping in mind the lyrics are "As you recall you know I love to show off/But you didn't think that I would take it this far/But what do you know?/(Flashing...lights)/What do you know?/(Flashing...lights)/Know?/As I recall I know you love to show off/But I didn't think that you would take it this far/But what do I know..."
Scenerio #1 - Show Kanye in the midst of all his fame through the use of flashing lights (the club, paparazzi, red carpet) and juxtaposition (did I use it right) that with his girl sitting at home waiting for him and trying to kill herself. Kanye comes home to more flashing lights courtesy of the police department and ambulances.
Scenerio #2 - Show Kanye abandoning his girl and someone hands him a tape with his girl screwing another guy.
Scenerio #3 - Show Kanye abandoning his girl (sensing a theme here? lol) and he comes home to find his house trashed and/or burned down
I think that's all I have for now. I've been putting off this post for so long that I forgot a lot of ideas.
Ah well. *shrugs*

Why is the female "host" looking at the man like she's ReRe Franklin at a Chinatown All-You-Can-Eat Buffet Extravaganza?
Why am I getting a P.M. Dawn vibe at 2:13?
Why does the bigro have a ceaser in the front and a fro in the back?
Why does the music from 3:19 to 3:43 sound like a banger? (No pun intended)
Why is dude in the seafoam green giving me windah lickah at 5:05?
If this was actually real, couldn't you see Steve Harvey and Mo'nique as the hosts?
Why does 5:55 through 6:55 sound like a 112 intro mixed with some Chris Brown?
Why is the shit HAWT?!?
Why can I see (and hope to see) Lupe Fiasco in one of Green Bench's joints?
Why does THE funniest shit I've seen in a while start at 8:55?
Why would I smash the two smaller dudes repeatedly?
Dammit, I haven't been this confused by a bomb-ass parody song since "Love Me Sexy"!

Helloooooooooooooo everyboday! I know it's been a minute...but I'm ready. *winks* So much stuff has happened in the last two months it ain't even funny! I think I'll take this month by month.
New Year's Eve was a blast! Went out to a club/bar and got drunk with my older (and usually so reserved) cousin. Met a cute guy, flirted, and got him to buy me a drank. Ah, the milestones of getting older, right? That last drank was what did it 'cause the next day I ain't want to hear shit about cherries, pineapples or coconuts! Not too bad of a hangover so yay!
I LOST my muthafuckin' iPod! Or so I thought. Turns out it was stuck in between the cushions one one of our couches.
I was talking to this guy AP for a couple of weeks and I really liked him. He was SOOO cute on his MySpace page but when I saw him I was like "Ehhhhhhh...". Now, I know myself and I know that if I'm not attracted to someone off-bat but their personality is tight then the looks won't matter and I'll be straight. Don't get me wrong, dude was NOT ugly it's just...I wasn't attracted to him. He sensed something was up before I did so we both bowed out but had a nice second date. I told him that I just wasn't ready for a relationship but the truth was that I wasn't ready for a relationship...with him. Sorry. :-( He was cool as hell, too and I seriously wanted us to be friends but it didn't quite work out that way.
I hooked up with an ex of mine and smoked my first hookah (Thanks to SR for that!) and it was sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!
After hooking up with said ex, we went to Harold's Chicken where I proceeded to chat up a guy who looked like a SRSLY cute version of Jay-Z (not as much camel, ya know?). Keep in mind I was actually with the ex when I did this. I mean, dude came in, I started eyeing him, made sure it was cool with my ex ("We just friends right? We ain't trying to get back together, right?" "Nah. Do ya thing, shawty."), and walked over to dude's table. He gave me his number (REAL) and it was cool. It wasn't until I got home and looked in the mirror that I saw a couple of light hickies on my neck! LMAO Me and dude talked for a little bit (we even made a date) but that didn't work out either. The reason for that (and the other shit I'm about to write about) deserves its...well...his own post. *blushes*
I talked to Bobby again. Goodness knows why. Maybe I was just bored. Anyway, he started on his whole "Babylovelysweetheartsexysweetiehoneysugarpie" shit, as usual and he made a vow to better himself when it came to me...as usual. *rolls eyes* He wanted to go out on the coldest day of the year and y'all already know that was not happening so...nothing happened. BTW, he said the reason why he said all that foul shit to me the last time we talked was because he had lost his job and he didn't move like he planned to and he was soooo stressed out and couldn't take care of his daughter the way that he though he should and blah blah blah blah zzzzzzzzzzzz.
Just a little tip for my people out there: If you're frustrated/angry/pissed/miffed about something DO NOT take it out on other people, ESPECIALLY a person that has NOTHING to do with the reason you're frustrated/angry/pissed/miffed in the first place! Even if it is the same person, don't be such an asshole-ish bitch about it!
Annyway...that didn't work out so well either because aside from the fact that he was pulling that "My baby mama who I swear I'm not in a relationship with or fucking anymore pays my cell phone bill and she checks who I call so I can't call you right now so just please hold on until the 1st when I can pay my own." shit, I started to fall for someone else.
Someone who I'll refer to as...Sasuke (yes, from "Naruto")...
In the next post! Byee! *blows kisses and runs*

Love is sometimes not enough.
Sometimes what you think is not enough turns out to be way too much.
When God closes one door, another one opens.
Sometimes an open door can give you the strength to close another one.
My moral boundries are not as set in stone as I thought they were.
No matter your age, you can still act like a jealous, petty teenager.
Having no empathy is bad but it's just as bad to have too much.
Don't give so much of yourself that you have NOTHING left for you.
Be so attracted to yourself that you never have to worry about whether someone else is.
Insanity is doing the same thing the same way and expecting a different result.
It's okay to be single.
The right anti-depressant makes all the difference in the world.
He will always go back to the baby mama.
Your best friend can be your ex and your ex can be your best friend. (think about that one for a minute)
I don't like being put on pedestals because the higher you're placed, the farther you may have to fall.
I can last six months without sex.
Six months without sex kinda sucks. (or not sucks, if you want to use a pun)
I never want to dye my hair an "extreme" color again. (Stained nails, body, clothes, pillowcases, shower, and walls)
I love my curls.
I hate my curls.
Curl cream is a life-saver.
I love getting free samples.
I have pretty tittays.
Nipple piercing hurts like a bitch!
Revenge can happen inadvertedly.
A connection is a connection, no matter if it's in person or over the internet.
Some of the most reserved and quiet-looking people can be crazy as hayle (in a good way) and can Crunk their asses off!
Finally...I've learned that I love, luv, lub, and luff my Crunk fam! I want to say thanks to y'all because I never knew that a connection with so many people who are not face-to-face was possible. Y'all have made me laugh my ass off, enriched my vocabulary (peen, pus'e, dack, hamhock hoes), given me advice whether I wanted it or not (lol), and comforted me through some of the worst times I've had this year. I don't know what I would've done without y'all and I damn sho don't wanna find out. I LOVE Y'ALL NEGUSES AND YT (there's only one)!!
Crunk will be great in '08,

I know that this is an interview and I know that he's actually answering the questions but when I see his sexiness and his gorgeous eyes (although that screen shot is hurrible)...
...they might as well be adults in Charlie Brown's world 'cause I promise all I hear is "Wah. Wah-wah-wah-wah. K'nahmsayin'?".
Oh, Fiddy. What I wouldn't give to be able to feel tiny in your arms, make love all night and then wake up in the morning and cook you some cheesy eggs and fried bologna! *shivers in extacy*
Don't look at me like that, y'all! I gotta have someone to fulfill my needs until Mr. Wasulu Muhammad Jaco comes to claim me as his wife!
Oh, and Curtis...I lubs you. I really do. Oh, the things I would let you do!
I would let you beat it up and hobble my ass into the kitchen to fix you whatever you want no matter what time it is.
I would lick the muthafuckin' sweat off of your collarbone.
I would grab your ears and keep your ass well-fed (ahem) for DAYS.
I would practice Pliates AND Yoga just so you can twist my ass like a pretzel.
I would show you why somebody asked me if I was half-giraffe (context clues...STOP! Think about it!).
You pull some shit like THIS on me
And you WILL be fucked to the UP, mah nigga. *blows a kiss*
