Happy Halloween Goons, Ghosts and Goblins! I hope everyone has a safe and fun Halloween. Remember to check your candy, Trick or Treat in the safest areas, be aware of the masked costumers and go out early in the day. Everyone enjoy this day, I can't wait to see the creative trick or treat costumes. I wish I could go out and have fun, but I have rehearsal for a school play and then evening class. My life sucks!!!
I just noticed why does local pet grooming services charge more than brand pet companies such as Petsmart, PetCo. and etc. Seriously, I own a 4 year old female Shih-Tzu and I get charged $50 just for a full groom, $30-$40 for just a wash. I checked prices for PetSmart and a grooming package the most is $21, talk about saving money. The reason why I don't go to PetSmart or PetCo. reason being the distance of how far I am from the nearest one. New Jersey isn't quite travel friendly to these places at the most. I mean whatever, dog grooming shouldn't be so much an d strict on shots, as long as the pet has updated their shots at the beginning of the year, there shouldn't be a problem. What's your take on the situation? Do you come across expensive dog grooming?
OMG! Seriously, this is crazy. I can't even fathom the thought of finding out one of my family members died via FaceBook. Somebody has to step it up people, step it up! What do you think about the story?
It's not even the Christmas season yet, but this Michael Buble guy just makes me want to skip Halloween and Thanksgiving and go right to the Christmas holiday. I love a good Christmas album, in my opinion nobody beats the Christmas albums the Jackson 5 and Mariah Carey. Michael Buble however has just made the list, his voice on these Christmas classics is incredible. If you are looking for that old soulful unforgettable holiday music then Christmas by Michael Buble is what you need to go grab.
Michael covers classics such as "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas", "White Christmas feat. Shania Twain","Silent Night", "All I Want For Christmas Is You", "Ave Maria","Santa Baby" and many more of your favorite Christmas tunes. Trust me, you'll love this album and you'll love his voice. I don't know but he sounds like Frank Sinatra. This is going to be one of the best holiday album this year. Check him out!
This weekend I was introduced to one of the best music programs ever. It's called Spotify, basically its like iTunes but you're not even downloading a single thing. This music player program has about every album you can name. Just type the artist name, song, or album in the search bar and immediately you will see what you've been looking for. What's cool about this program is that you can sync your itunes library to Spotify and also share your playlist, likes, and rated songs to your social networking sites. To get Spotify, all you have to do is download it and you're done. Say bye bye to illegal downloading and viruses. Spotify is the new way to get connected to your favorite tunes.

With all the recent appearances by RnB group Boyz II Men, regarding their newly entitled album Twenty out in stores now, I thought i'd end the week off with one of their throwback songs from the 90s. The slow love ballad "I'll Make Love To You" is one of Boyz II Men's greatest memorable slow jams till this day. Everyone loved the sensual, seductiveness and sexy vibrato's the group produced on this record. Along with the video, it made a remarkable classic video to add to everyone's own music vault. Today, you can hear this song being sung as audition songs, karaoke and at weddings. Boyz II Men is one helluva powerful group that will always be remembered for their significance in RnB music. Today's Throwback Friday video/song is Boyz II Men's "I'll Make Love To You".
This coming Saturday, a friend invited me to come along with her to the MTV The Real World casting. Now, I don't know exactly where at in New York City the casting is held, but I just hope I want to see who else was going to attend this casting. If you're aware of the casting tweet me and let me know you're going or you're in line. I'm pretty sure this is going to be a long wait process, just like any TV show casting there is always a long wait. Hope to see you there and good luck to you all!!! I'll take pictures and video clips while i'm there. Tweet Me @LaTroyWatson
Who knew The Dwarf Grill would turn into the $4 billion fast food chain Chick-fil-A? I have never eaten Chick-fil-A in my entire 22 years of living. A lot of my friends tell me how amazing the chicken is and so forth. I have many in my state of New Jersey, passed by them too but still haven't gotten a chance to bite the first chicken sandwich. Yes! The first chicken sandwich, you know it was originated by an 8yr old by the name of Truett Cathy and here is his story...

The video for the most anticipated single since the summer has now been released for millions and millions to watch. Beyonce gives us the latest video for her single "Party" the remix version featuring J Cole. If you ask me J Cole definitely gives "Party" that old school Hip-Hop and RnB flow than Andre 3000. The video was shot late this sumemr early August in a New Jersey suburbian trailer park community. As the song states the theme of the music video is a trailer block party. Beyonce looks to die for in the video as well as cameo appearances by Solange and Kelly Rowland. Right now, I don't know which video of mine is my favorite from Beyonce; she's just doing the damn thing! J Cole, sexy as hell! Take a look for yourself:
Seriously, this story is so sad and I have no words for the parents. Just how bad is a nine year old to where she is physically abused to death?! I'm going to follow up on this story. What are your thoughts about this story?
As you know i'm a horror fanatic, I just love everything that would scare the living
Many of you probably don't know this, but I used to be one of the biggest World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) fans way back in the day even when it was originally called World Wrestling Federation (WWF). I probably stopped watching it in 2008 a year after I graduated High School. I think I got bored with it due to all these new wrestlers coming in the business and the old legends either went on to acting or just threw in the towel. I'm not here to write a long informative blog post about my obsession with wrestling, but I do have many favorite clips that I remember. Just to let you know my favorite wrestlers are Shawn Michaels and Triple H. DX Baby!!! Here are some of my favorite WWE clips:

To keep it going with the Halloween spooky goonsly holiday, I've found some amazing mouth-watering Halloween foods that chef Rachael Ray has on her website. This chicken version of a beef sloppy joe on a mini hamburger bun looks absolutely stomach teasing.Who didn't love sloppy joe as a kid growing up? I know I did!!! I don't even know how to make it now to save my own life. Rachael Ray calls this creative dish Devilish Sloppy Chicken Mini Sammies, cute right? Rachael Ray always knows how to throw down in the kitchen and as you can see especially during festive holidays. Mmm, I can't wait to try this, maybe we'll have a Halloween dinner at my house and guess what?! All of you are invited! Sike Nah! That was funny, but no you can come by if you want a dish. Without further adu, I bring to you from Rachael Ray's Halloween Central recipes Devilish Sloppy Chicken Mini Sammies.
Here is this weeks new episode of The Skorpion Show featuring our favorite hosts Kevin Simmons and Makael Mclendon and guess what?! Shut the rumor mill DOWN! The dynamic duo aren't beefing at all and there will be more Skorpion Shows to last us a lifetime :-). But that doesn't mean you can continue to jump around and watch the video...You know the routine, Subscribe, Like, Comment and Share this video. Thank you, now enjoy!
Some of you have complimented me on how beautiful my face has been looking lately. Thank you to those for your beautiful gestures, but it's not so easy keeping a beautiful face. As I mentioned before, I have very oily skin, which I hate to the max. At times, my face would become excessively greasy and my nose would shine like Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer. To sum this up, I do a simple regime that's not hard for anyone to do, it's just having to add it in your daily schedule now; an extra step. Thanks to the products of Clean & Clear and also Nivea for Men, I've been controlling my glossy face for months now. Here's what I do...
I was recently emailed by one of my viewers who informed me one of my blog posts that stood out to him was the top 10 workout songs. Chris Lawhorn, who operates RunHundred (a blog/website about workout songs and workout routines) and also writes some music articles for magazines such as Marie Clair and Men's Journal, generously suggested with his knowledge on great workout songs he would provide me with the top 10 workout songs of the month. Without hesitation I emailed him back accepting his offer. I mean we all dread working out, but it's something about music that gets our hearts pumping and motivates us to work hours in the gym or at home. Thank You Chris for being a big help! Without further adu, here are the Top 10 Workout Songs of October 2011. Continue after the jump on how you can stay connected to Chris Lawhorn.

This show has everything you need and more. We all know the relationship between Marcus and Angela, so you know this show is going to be one crazy hell of a ride. You can watch the trailer below, at first I thought it was a new movie, but the production camera Tyler Perry must be using is a great transitional phase from Movie to TV. Anyway, we can't wait until the show premieres! Take a look:
Don't we all love us some Chrystian? Here he is singing a cover of Frank Ocean's "Thinking About You". The funny thing is, this is the second cover I heard of the song and I haven't heard the original song yet! Hearing these covers makes me not want to go back but move forward with hearing more covers, but Chrystian's version is my favorite so far. Check it out!
This is by far the best breakfast, lunch and dinner sandwich ever made by Dunkin Donuts!!! I mean, no arguments included in this subject! Bacon, Eggs, and Cheese on a buttery Texas Toast is just so freaking mouth watering to me. If you never had one of these sandwiches then I don't know what you think breakfast consists of. I'm obsessed with these sandwiches, maybe for Christmas someone should get me a yearly Dunkin Donuts gift certificate :-)! #JustSaying
My friend Daniel aka Dan or Danny from Jersey, is one hell of a creative artist. No! not paintings, but graphic designing, his designs are sick!!! I knew he made apparel items such as shirts and hats, with his line of #TeamDanAndre tagged all over but to add to his latest edition...BUTTONS! How cool is that?! The best accessory for any outfit is a Button. You can never go wrong, even Napoleon Dynamite is jealous of Dan. I really like how Dan took his everyday quotes and turned them into something fun and creative. Usually, people would claim their quotes and go about their day, but Dan is making them known to the public.
Each button has it's own saying and design, I love the cartoon pic he has of himself having a big curly fro! You can purchase (yes, not everything is free) these buttons from Dan himself, you can find him mostly at work but he's a full-time student at Bloomfield College in Jersey and always involved in the nightlife events going on. Buttons are $2 each which isn't that bad for what dopeness you're about to rock on your everyday outfit. I support the #TeamDanAndre movement and so should YOU! Check out more #TeamDanAndre buttons after the jump also his contact info will be listed if interested.

This weekend was a long one for me, I also feel like there's not enough hours on Saturday and Sundays. Saturday night, I refused to stay in the house so I went out. I haven't gone out to a club/lounge since the summer, around the last two weeks of July. I know it seems like forever! I got word that my friend DJ Shy was going to DJ at this local Sports Bar and Lounge around my way.
Skybox Sports Bar and Lounge is the name of the place and it's literally around the corner from where I live. Oh' I did go by myself which turned out to be not so bad, I enjoyed the 21+ crowd and a party never goes wrong when you have DJ Shy and the RUN NJ team in the booth. Sometimes you don't always have to go out with a group of people to have a good time. Fun is what you make it and that's exactly what I had by myself. I can't wait to go back, maybe this time with a friend or two though. Make sure you also come out to Skybox Sports Bar and Lounge located at 586 Raritan Rd. Roselle, New Jersey (908) 245-4455.
Do you ever go places by yourself? How do you feel about going out with a group of people? What is the good and bad about it?

Wow, I absolutely love this video. This is my favorite Rihanna video of all time. To me this is how a music video looked back in the 90s, when music was so real and alive. I love the art, treatment, style, and story this music video included. Rihanna looks so gorgeous in all the scene shots, as well as her blonde eye candy love interest. I'm really anticipating Rihanna's new album due next month entitled Talk That Talk. Director Melina did an awesome job with this video despite the controversy between the Irish farm land owner and the crew members. "WE FOUND LOVE IN A HOPELESS PLACE" What did you think of the video?
I may be a little late but who cares it's Beyonce, her name will keep going around the world even when it stops. Beyonce earlier this week premiered the video for her VMA hit performance song "Love On Top" for the Aussies down-under. The video starts off with Beyonce and her background dancers in a dance studio lined up like some of your favorite boy bands such as; The Temptations, New Edition, New Kids On The Block and other remarkable groups of the past. Beyonce traded in her heels for some groovy sneaks and to add a rockstar outfit to sing in. Later in the video Beyonce turns glam as always and puts on a stellar ending to the video.
The video is beyond cute and you can't help but to sing along to "Love On Top" like you're in Church that is. "Love On Top" music video by far has hit my top 5 favorite Beyonce videos, i'm just mad she skipped out on the 2nd verse, but whatever the ending did me justice. Go Bey!
The Skorpion Show is back this week with an all new episode which was aired late last night, but as always in cased you missed it, I'm bringing you news and entertainment the Skorpion way. Unfortunately, Kevin will be doing The Skorpion Show solo this week, our favorite co-host Makael won't be back until next week. We all can't wait for his return, but we still have crazy Kevin to keep us entertained. This episode talks about Kevin's up coming Birthday Party, a recent fight at a McDonald's in New York City, the Amber Cole fiasco, Basketball Wives star crazy Jackie Christie plus many more. Subscribe to the channel, Watch the video, Like the video, Comment the video and also Share the video, all in that order. Enjoy!!!
For those who are into listening to unsigned artists such as singers, rappers, bands etc., YouTube is the place to go. For years now, YouTube has been a platform for undiscovered acts to get discovered in various ways. Those who are dedicated in their craft and work promote themselves on YouTube to gain an audience who will enjoy what they create. As for me, I've seen some amazing talent on YouTube, but it is usually when I type in a certain song and i'm directed to the links of unsigned talent who cover the songs I enjoy. Never sleep on those YouTube users who share their videos in your inbox; I have never payed any attention to those videos until now.
Our third favorite time of the fall year has arrived, ABC Family's 13 Nights Of Halloween starts tonight. Every year ABC Family finds themselves getting into the Halloween festivities by playing shows and movies that intertwine with something spooky, scary, or cute and spooky. I really don't watch the show's they have now on the network, so i'll be tuning in for the movies. My favorite 13 Nights Of Halloween movie is the trilogy of Halloween Town. That movie just does it for me and my October fest. How do you guys bring in the Halloween festivities? I'm a horror fanatic so I must get my Halloween fix on every year. You can look at the 13 Nights Of Halloween show scheduling by clicking here. Enjoy your 13 horrifying nights everyone!

I love the cake crumbs especially with a fruit mixed in. I believe you get to taste the flavor of both the cake and fruit like no other as it becomes an orgasmn to the taste buds. This tasty dessert is brought to us by new mom Tori Spelling from her web/blogsite ediTORIal by Tori Spelling. I love the dishes she puts on her website, they become so creative and she makes them look easy to make. Has anyone ever had Warm Mixed Berry Crumb Cake before? Check the recipe after the jump...

click here. I love the new revamped site, the site is more active and easy to get around, also just like shopping at a regular store, Altaron now gives you the option to shop online while listening to some music. I suggest you take a look at the site and start shopping. His pieces of clothing are dope and you'd love the graphics on each shirt. Support ABSOL DESIGNS.

Back in 1995, when I was 6 years old, I used to be afraid to watch a certain video because of the beat and how the guy was rapping. Yes! Coolio used to scare the living organs out of me. Although, the movie Dangerous Minds, was one of my favorite movies to watch, every time the song "Gangster's Paradise" came on at the end, I immediately froze shaking in my boots. The music video to the song was just so dark and haunting. I feel embarrassed to even tell you all about my fear of this video. I thought it would go along with the upcoming Halloween festivities if I posted a music video that related to something horrifying or scary. Well, now I know Coolio is one cool ass rapper and this song....puhleze I can watch the music video 10x a day! Here is today's Throwback Friday video "Gangster's Paradise" by Coolio, Enjoy!

We all know the routine, Like The Video, Thumbs Up The Video, and Subscribe To The Skorpion Show. This video gets very intense. Great topics and view points from both Kevin and Makael. What do you think about Wendy Williams and her messiness? Who should be blamed for the coping of another artists' work in a music video, the director or the artist themself? Do you think Beyonce is faking her pregnancy? Let me know.
Yesterday, Kelly Rowland dropped the video to her second single "Lay It On Me" feat. Big Sean off her latest album Here I Am. Can we say let's look at the eye candy in the video?! OMG! Kelly knows how to choose guys for her videos. Big Sean was also looking like the cat's meow in the video. The video is very sexy and seductive, I didn't expect anything big from the video, but this is just right. Kelly really looks beautiful on camera and this video definitely shows it. Kelly has some killer legs! I die for them! Check out the video after the jump.

Can I declare that i'm the coolest kid on campus? I swear the best notebook to have while being a collge student is the Five Star Flex NoteBinder. This NoteBinder (a notebook/binder in one) has made my back so much better. In college, you are forced to buy tons of heavy text books and then plus a notebook for each class that you have, all of this book carrying can really become a strain in your back. But thanks to Mead, they have created a light weight binder where you can include all your subjects into one. This is different from the regular binders though, it's very light weight, no matter how much you fill your NoteBinder, it will always feel light and free. It usually runs for about $10 - $16, it's a great investment you basically can re-use over and over. I suggest students with a heavy class schedule and a lot of text books buy the NoteBinder. GOTTA LOVE MINE!
The new family sitcom on BET entitled Read Between The Lines, has become one of my favorite fall shows. Being a fan of Malcolm Jamal-Warner and Traci Ellis Ross, I knew I would love this show the first second I watched it. This show is funny, sweet, and the story lines are going to be great. I've been hearing people say this is the new black Cosby's but this show is far from the Cosby's, it's more like My Wife and Kids but the whole cast are comedic. BET has really been producing very great shows, I hope this show will stick around for the long run. Have you checked out the show? It comes on Tuesday nights at 10PM on BET.

They're Back!!! The ongoing success of the hit virtual life game The Sims is back with an all new adventure, the follow up to The Sims 2 Pets. The Sims 3 Pets is the newest edition to the multitude of Sims expansion pack games. This time the pets edition includes more pets even rare breeds, more neighborhoods and much better interaction between the pets and
|Bachelorette Party Gone Wild?!|
How funny is this parody of The Sims games? I died literally laughing late last night. These two actually had The Sims characters down pack, from when they're objects in their walkway, from the way how they eat, when they have conversations with each other and the funniest when they have to use the bathroom real bad. Still till this day, I don't know what language these Sims speak. Sounds like all the languages built into one; so diverse. Are you a fan of The Sims games?

How cute are these Breast Cancer cookies my BFF Britany baked? Rutgers Newark had a bake sale in honor of October's Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

SAVE THE BOOBIES!
