I've been listening to Kid Fury and Crissles' podcast, "The Read" for quite some time and I am thrilled they'll be gracing Seattle with their ratchetry and judgement Saturday, October 3rd!

The Read Live! will be held in the Microsoft Auditorium at the Seattle Public Library - Central location on 4th. General Admission tickets are currently on sale for $30, while the VIP Meet & Greet tickets are already sold out.

I've already got my ticket and am brainstorming which green treats to bless Kid Fury and Crissles with! You already know the turn-up will be real, so mark your calendars, cop your tickets and get your greenery on deck.

Black/Latino Men needed for "Mentoring in the Moment" @HERESeattle

HERE Seattle will be taking part in the "Mentoring in the Moment" event next weekend in Capitol Hill to connect Black/Latino youth with potential big brothers and sisters. Right now the event is seeking more male volunteers to connect with the majority male kids. This is the perfect opportunity for the professional Black and Latino men of Seattle to take 2.5 hours out of their schedule and foster a relationship with kids in need. It really only takes one interaction to change the direction of someone's life, so any time that can be spent with the kids will be greatly appreciated.

Seth and Eric, two of the co-founders of HERE Seattle, can be seen in the below video giving an update on the event. For more information and to volunteer, please reach out directly to HERE Seattle via their website or Facebook Page.

Drake + a dope ass beard + 15 lbs of muscle #ThickNeckThursday

I wish I could raise up a virtual glass of the finest bubbly for Drake's Beard and new found thickness. It's actually overwhelming to take it all in. Drake + A dope ass beard + 15 to 20 lbs of muscle = the perfect summertime trilogy.

I mean, I took notice a few weeks ago and started raving to my co-workers about Drake's thickness and beard. Of course I was met with blank stares... then a few weeks later the internet is going semi-nuts because everyone is finally seeing what I've seen all along.

Somewhere in the last 6 months Drake entered the CT Fletcher school of "commanding his shit to grow" and got his #BeardSeason and #ThickNeck black card.

Wheelchair Jimmy is now fine as fuck... I don't even care if his music has declined a bit as his neck radius has increased. This is a solid investment.

Raise your glass and join me in an e-toast for Drake, his beard, and thick neck! Drake's beard is now more popular than he is lol...

How to Groom Your Dog (Video)

It's been hot as balls in Seattle lately, with temps staying in the high 80s again this week. I'm from Chicago and used to hot, humid summers and lived in AZ for quite a few years (115 degree temps aren't strange), but Seattle is a different monster.

Why? Most apartments and some businesses don't have A/C! Like, no fucking A/C in sight. It's a sad, sad reality that you'll probably be hot as hell in your overpriced apt or favorite restaurant.

I seriously thought it was illegal to not provide A/C in apartments when I first moved here.

Anyways, with the temps so hot and the apartment so muggy, my main priority is keeping Khaleesi cool. Right now I have 2 fans in constant rotation, but I've also made it a priority to groom her.

Khaleesi's Shed Hair
Y'all -- my favorite color is black. Most of my clothes are black. However, my dog is white. My dope ass dog and all of her luxurious white hair is ALL OVER MY FUCKING APARTMENT! The struggle is real... but I love her to pieces and take pride in being a pet parent. Thus, I sacrifice my clothing and floors to make sure she's groomed and not uncomfortable during this heat wave.

Khaleesi's Hair all over my black pants

Below is a quick video showing my preferred grooming method, brush from PetCo, and trick for getting shed hair off the carpet. Take a look and let me know what you think!
