Lucky is still Time Traveling..............I Loved this show!

This was a personal favorite for me.....I don't care what anyone else says, this show was funny and it even dealt with real life issues like drug use, and steroids.....a funny show!

XLarge..................Well they just won't stop!

A while back, I posted the first part to this wonderful fusion of rockband/ nerd wear from XLarge that LuckysinLove with. Well part 2 of the drop has been floating through the blog-o-sphere and Lucky has got something for you.....


As many of you know, LuckysinLove promotes individuality through art, music and of course fashion. The fashion show/ fundraiser which will serve as the official launch is still gaining momentum......I truly apologize for leaving some of you in the dark and for my lack of post lately, but this is a huge undertaking that needs a lot of my time.....I thank you all for being patient with me through all of this. In the mean time, I will continue fight at putting a smile on your faces as you keep noticing all the beautiful creativity around you....

50 Shots Mean Nothing In A Court Of Law........

Officers of the NYPD are issued a 9mm Service pistol that fires in DAO (Double Action Only). Currently authorized pistols for new officers to select from include the SIG P226 (DAO), Smith & Wesson 5946 (DAO), and Glock 19 (All modified to a nominal 12 pound trigger pull). Senior officers who joined prior to 1993 are still authorized to carry Smith & Wesson Model 64 .38 Special Revolvers. Now during the Sean Bell incident, five of the seven officers investigating the club were involved in the shooting. Detective Paul Headley fired one round, Officer Michael Carey fired three, Officer Marc Cooper fired four, Officer Gescard Isnora fired eleven, and veteran officer Michael Oliver emptied two full magazines, firing 31 shots from a 9mm handgun and pausing to reload at least once.....Now I want you to read all that over again, and imagine all of these shots coming at you without returning fire....Have any of you seen a UC before....they're UNDERCOVER COPS...who is going to think of a gang of men (A gang is a group of individuals that share a common identity, even if that identity consists of little more than their association with one another. In early English usage, it referred to a group of workmen, and later underwent pejoration. ...) None of this was used in the case.....apparently the prosecution thought everything was cut and dry (I've seen this sort of bullshit happen too much)....Witness testimony not coinciding hurt, but lets think about it...OVER 50 SHOTS FIRED, AND NO RETURN BULLETS AT THE OFFICERS??? least give them some time!

Now I've been scratching my head over this one and trying not to break into the race issue because of the color of the defense, but what happened to the issue of classism. Classism which is the systematic oppression of poor people and people who work for wages by those who have access to control of the necessary resources by which other people make their living. Classism is also held in place by a system of beliefs which ranks people according to economic status, "breeding," job and level of education. Classism says that upper class people are smarter and more articulate than working class and poor people. It is a way of keeping people down, and I refuse to dance around the "Give a nigga a Badge" theory.....some of you are scratching your nogs, but think about this; Are you usually backed into a corner by a white police officer, or a colored officer being accompanied by a white officer?.....Some say the race thing is too much Lucky, but I can't help it. we live in a society so blinded by it that you can't help it. A man that was tested to be drunk (after the fact) is in a verbal disagreement with a gang of men brandishing weapons, and you think he knows??? Now you give a black man a badge and you end up with this:

Don't get mad because I'm giving it to you in two ways. Yes, I disagree with the verdict, but No I will not join your fight....Now from the stands, I see all this going on and I refuse to join the "Wear Black" revolution or the "Fight the Power" cause on this one....I urge you all to do what they truly fear....Succeed. We are the last of a dying breed....Educated, Beautiful and full of Energy. Sean Bell was a star high school pitcher who only stopped playing to support his pregnant girlfriend.....I refuse to put on the militant gear of the past (wearing all black), and don the helmet of tomorrow (a graduation cap) because this can't be real.....A man cannot leave his house getting ready to say two of the most beautiful words he can say to a woman and have his life taken from him and nothing is done.....For those of you sending those text messages.....lets stop and think of something beyond the militant thoughts of revolution through protest and plotting to kill officers (I know you read that article as well).....Let's hit them where it hurts....Lets become what the they're not used to seeing.....lets step out of our class and create something new.....lets succeed and together we can create a world suitable for the likes of Sean's daughter, and for our future....

Nike Tennis Classic...............Quickstrike....

Word is floating through the blog-o-sphere that Nike will be investing a lot of time into these......from the reviews I've read, many find this sneaker to be "bland" and not worth the effort, but "I must admit that I kinda like".....Check out the pics below:

NEW BATMAN POSTERS.....................Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy.......

This is my favorite but would be "the it" if it had the "Why So Serious?" line......SICKNESS!

For those of you who don't know, Harvey Dent was a close friend to Bruce Wayne and later became TwoFace...........hence the poster...HaH, I love it!

I don't like this one.......seems too out there for the synopsis and mood of this film....

I honestly don't think NO ONE is more amped than me for this movie..........NO ONE!
