MANDOM presents "What Can Brown Do For You" by The Truth

Mandom

In the driveway at my mom’s house is a 2001 Suburban. Tan with leather seats, fully equipped with the soccer mom tv, seat massagers and a 3rd row that folds into the floor. She was convinced by the media, family members, and friends that since she had a lot of kids, a Suburban was the car for her. She longed for this car and scraped and saved and scraped and saved until she got her prize. The Suburban, or Brown as she calls it, has had a lot of miles and work put into it. After a few minor problems finally there was an accident. A little smashed in the front but still recognizable and not functional at all, Brown still resides in the driveway. If people come over, even Mom, there is only one parking spot now because of all the space Brown takes up. Notice I said if people come over. No one really wants to circle the block for a parking space and walk down the block to her house. People have to rearrange their cars around Brown because even though it does her no good, she will not get rid of it. We told her to junk it, sell it, burn it, or give it to the car Gods. Just do anything to get it out of the way, but she is standing firm. Brown has done so much for her in the past that she can’t possibly get rid of it. Brown was there when she moved from her rental house to her home. Brown was there, going hard, on those harsh winter days to get her back and forth to work in 13 inches of snow. Brown was there for her through thick and thin, however the key word is WAS there. Brown does nothing now but take up space and remind her of how things USED to be.

A lot people are in similar situations. It may not be Brown, or a car but we still have things in our lives that do nothing but take up space and cause problems. Friends, jobs, boyfriends/girlfriends are sometimes factors in our everyday lives that we are holding on to simply out of habit simply because we have been told not to give up on things or people and that some things are meant to last forever. Because of that we put more and more work into creating these lasting relationships under the impression that when you come by something good, give your all to make it last. This is true, but we also have to operate under the following belief system. People are put into your life for a reason or a season. Every job, friend or person that comes into our life is not meant to be around forever. Sometimes you have use situations for the season they were given to you, learn you lesson, incorporate it into your life and keep it moving. You could possibly miss out on blessings and other avenues because you are too busy working on something that isn’t meant to last.

It’s the responsibility of each and every person to look into their driveway and see who is useful and who is taking up space. Who or what are you holding onto simply because you are used to having it there? Who or what are you holding onto simply because you have been through everything together and one day things will be right? Who is useful to you and who is taking up space? Who is there to encourage, uplift, support and motivate you and who is there to show you that you have to be careful to your trust, show you that love is blind, or teach you some other lesson? Ask this question of everybody in your life: Are you here for a reason or a season??

MANDOM presents "Mailroom Mentality" by The Truth

Mandom

A new MANDOM original written by The Truth entitled "Mailroom Mentality" do you have a mailroom mentality but expecting CEO status in your social life. Time for a reality check.

If you ask any single woman today why she is single she’ll say "Because I’m looking for a real man". Ask any single man and he’ll say "I’m looking for a real woman, somebody who can hold me down". Most likely he or she will go into his or her definition of a real man or woman, which probably includes most of the following: good looking, good in bed, financially stable, nice job, an independent thinker, nice car, nice home, no crazy ex girlfriends, no kids, not on the down low (lol), affectionate, romantic, honest, loyal or as a wise man once told me, a fantasy person. I don’t want to go as far as to say that these people don’t exist, but if you are complaining that you cannot meet these types of people then maybe it’s time to reevaluate the kind of person you are.

What kind of energy are you putting out to attract the kind of people you meet? If every time you meet a man you run around screaming INDEPENDENT and talking about how you don’t need a man, do you really expect him to try to change your mind? Do you expect him to do more than have his way with you and keep it moving? We all know that the male ego is a precious thing in constant need of stroking and that men take things at face value. If you tell him that you don’t need a man for anything except the peen, then that’s all you’ll get. And men, don’t say that you are looking for somebody to hold you down and expect that to mean she’ll stay by your side through job after job, 8 nights of consecutive Madden tournaments, and ignorant baby mama’s. There is a difference between a woman who will hold you down and a doormat. It’s kind of like a job. There is no way, in any company, will somebody get that corner office on the top floor if they aren’t qualified for the position and work hard to get there. If you are in the mail room, don’t go around complaining about how there aren’t any good jobs. You aren’t getting the good jobs because you aren’t qualified and the same can be translated to relationships. If you don’t know what you want, are sending mixed signals, materialistic, attracted to drama, and most importantly not putting God first and self last, then expect to meet like-minded people and keep the complaints rolling. It’s not fair to the "real" men and women of the world to be ignored or simply thought of an extinct because everybody else is too busy running around with their mail room mentality. So before you say that you can’t meet a "real" man or a "real" woman, ask yourself this: Am I real?

Core i7 Is The New Hotness

Core i7

For all of my techies out there, this had excited me as well. In comparison of benchmarks to the Core 2 Duo processor:


A 2.93 GHz Core i7 940 system has been used to run a 3DMark Vantage benchmark and gave a CPU score of 17,966.[16] The 2.66 GHz Core i7 920 scores 16,294. An earlier generation Core processor, 2.66 GHz Core 2 Quad Q9450, scores 11,131. -- [ SOURCE ]


The Core i7 is a family of quad core processors and is billed as the successor to the Core 2 Duo. I built my computer myself. It has a Core 2 duo (dual core) processor and it's already fast enough. Motherboards for this processor are slim in number and DD3 memory sticks that will be required for it currently cost more than the DD2's but who cares...stick with your Core 2 Duo's now until this time next year and everything will be affordable enough to swap your whole system for this...you know how the technology game is. OR you can just buy the complete system from Dell now for $2600.

...all of this really means is that it's just really powerful.

Keri Hilson Says She Feeds The Man's Ego

Keri Hilson

Ladies and gentlemen, the beautiful and talented Keri Hilson.

While her debut album is being held back, "Energy" singer Keri Hilson is definitely not holding back on keeping it sexy for men or 'Stallions'.

"You have to be secure enough to stand next to a stallion" says Hilson when asked about confidence and the support of a gentleman.

"I'm 5'9, so my height's an issue. For a woman to feel her best, her man has to support her."

A statement Hilson says goes both ways, even in the bedroom.

"Some times you have to feed the male ego."

"Men think they know when we're faking it, but they have no idea. I know girls who are really good at it, and the men have no clue."

Keri Hilson's debut album is slated for release early 2009. [ SOURCE ]

This is why I love Keri Hilson. Really, that was almost Number 10 on the previous list. Ladies, it works when you play up to your man's ego. Believe me, because I'm a man. :) A couple more of Calivn Evans' Exclusive pictures during the shoot for Keri Hilson and Lil' Wayne's "Turnin' Me On" when you hit the break.

MANDOM's Final Thing Women MUST Know About Men

Porsche

Read this:

What you would do if your Ex poured a “corrosive substance” on your brand new Porsche?

For EPL ref Mark Clattenburg, like is looking like could go two ways right now. The first is a disgraced-filled (and possibly jail-time pocked) life like NBA betting ref Tim Donaghy if the investigation he’s going through England’s Football Association finds that his fancy new car and “luxury” flat in London were gotten through ill gains. The second is actually more serious because his ex-girlfriend and business partner Susan Clegg could end up being the Yolanda Saldívar to his Selena. The above photo is proof that not even his ride, which she poured a “corrosive substance” over and eventually arrested for, was safe. What’s next? His pico? Seems like you have a fork in the road ahead of you, Clattenburg, crazy bitch horror show or 18 months in the slammer like Donaghy. This is why we’re happy with our cute girlfriend, Honda Fit and single in the “up and coming” neighborhood, thank you very much. [ SOURCE ]


The other day, I dropped MANDOM's Ten Nine Things That Women MUST Know About Men list and although the title said ten, I posted nine and I saved the best for last.

Number 10
You are never EVER allowed to vandalize a man's car! A man, a SANE man, would never vandalize a car because he KNOWS, ACCEPTS, and CHERISHES the relationship a person a man has with his car. Because we care about our cars, like kids or wives. Except, our cars are better than kids or wives. So a car is better than marriage. My Gladys definitely is. I hug my car. I love my car. If I could put a ring on my damn car I would!

Rockmond Dunbar to Sanaa Lathan. Keeee-yah! Remember that? That is all!
