LOVE - The Streets
Mike Skinner, the british rapper better known as The Streets has been around for a while. I remember first hearing his style and immediately being blown away. His spoken word style is a breathe of fresh air from most of todays contemporary hip-hop. He is also what I consider a master storyteller. Instead of bragging about his cars and ho's, he is cleverly constructing a personal tale or social commentary from an every-man point of view. He is one of the few "celebrities" that genuinely doesn't seem to care, but in a good way. Just popped on my shuffle the other day and reminded me of how talented he is. Heres some of my favourite tracks. Check out some of his videos on youtube as well, especially "Irony Of It All", theyre low budget but sick. 

HATE - Plastic Band-aids

Now, I am not usually one for band-aids in the first place, as I am a firm believer in the "just give it air" idea. But sometimes you get those cuts that just wont go away, or are on a finger or somewhere where you're just gonna have to slap a band-aid on to get it healed. This being said, this was my situation last week. Upon searching for a band-aid in the house, all I could find were the new-age plastic band-aids. What idiot thought these were a good idea, they are literally one of the worst products I have ever used. Within 10 minutes, band-aid is off. Apply new one, off. Had to use two as more glorified tape than a band-aid to try and keep it on. If even the smallest hint of water touches the band-aid, boom, rendered useless. Now, over the break, I went home where I could obtain proper fabric old-style band-aids, and wow, why did they ever change? Those things will withstand anything...anything. In conclusion, Johnson & Johnson, figure it out, shitheads.
