Lately, it takes at least an hour at night to clear my head enough to be able to fall asleep... Random thoughts circa 1:57 this morning:



--I skipped work last Wednesday to watch "Matrix: Revolutions." Every fan of the series should see it, even though it's the worst of the bunch.



--My ongoing obesession with Jessica Alba might be strong enough that I'd actually go see this nearly-guaranteed-to-be-horrible movie with Mekhi Phifer that she's got coming out. Oh well, I did watch "Two Can Play That Game" and "Deliver Us From Eva" just to see Gabrielle Union...



--"Hey Ya" is dope, as is the entire "Love Below" album, but I'd rather not encourage the singing rappers thing so much, lest the trend get out of hand. The occasional joint is okay-- never been mad at "Winky's Theme," "Umi Says," "Hailie's Song," or "Automobile" (at least Dre 'n 'em weren't taking it that seriously); but when a cat who built his or her brand name on emceeing decides to go hard with the crooning-- to the point where he or she only raps for 5 or 6 minutes on the entire album-- it's a problem, or at least a sign of a problem to come.



The Q-Tip joints that-- was it Arista?-- decided not to release immediately come to mind. I remember having the same beef when "Miseducation of Lauryn Hill" came out; that album was dope, too, but the "MTV Unplugged" jont that followed proves just how bad it can get when the singing rappers go un-checked.



--Optimus Prime is Jewish? (okay, no more "Family Guy" right before I go to bed...)
