Justin Timberlake, Adam Sandburg & Lady GaGa - 3 Way

If you're anything like the rest of the world, you've given up on watching Saturday Nite Live...LIVE. You just wait for somebody that DID to rip the video and post it to youtube or dailymotion so you can see the skits that were actually worth a damn.

And as usual, the combo of Timberlake/Samburg deliver!

Lady GaGa slips in as well to lend a "helping hand"...damn I laughed my ass off. I'm sure you will too.

As you can tell, this vid started where a previous vid "Mother Lover" left off...here's that one too.

Real Talk Wit Raze: Shape-up My Kid's WHAT?

First and foremost...

IT'S THE OFFICIAL 100TH POST ON ASHY RADIO!!

Ok, now that I've gotten my cornball moment outta the way...on to business.



This, for many of us was our introduction to the Shape-Ups line from Sketchers. Which was initially aimed primarily at WOMEN for toning the legs and most importantly, THE ASS. (And who better a spokeswoman than Kimmy K?!) Get a sweaty, breathy-spoken, sex-tape toting, uber-vixen, that just so happens to be society's poster child for BUTTS, and BOOM! Your product should yield amazing sales and tap into all types of cultural sub-conscious insecurities as well, thus making them an even MORE powerful a product.

While this was a rather brilliant approach, which to my understanding, has certainly worked wonders for Sketchers fiscally, it also was a double edged sword. That approach made their product very appealing to women, but it simultaneously emasculated it. How on Earth can you now take a product so strongly embedded into society as a key component to shaping the female gluteous, and now market and sell it to MEN? Well, that's a mission that's still ongoing and I'm not sure how their sales are as of this post, but I suppose getting Gretzky & Montana can't possibly hurt (if you're desired demographic is middle aged white men out here "Brett Favre'n").

Now, HERE'S the sh*tkicker...Sketchers is now looking to market Shape-ups to CHILDREN. And whoa nelly, it's causing a massive sh*tstorm in social networks lately.

Here's MY take...

I've spoken to quite a few women that have owned these shoes for a couple months. While there's so many variables to weight loss, toning, etc (these chicks jog, yoga, & Zumba already, so there's no telling which, if not all of the above, are the cause of their successfully AWESOME bodies), by THEIR accounts, THE SHOES WORK. According to the women I've asked, within the first 10mins of wearing them in your day to day activities, you notice and feel BURN. Apparently, the shoes work because they force you to have to consciously balance yourself using, yup you guessed it, YOUR LEGS! From your calves all the way up to that pancakey ass, the shoes are at least a functional component to what they claim to do.

Which ultimately leads me to my point...

I think people that are anti-ShapeUps for kids are missing the point entirely. I understand that you don't want your 11yr old daughters thinking they "need these shoes to have a nice ass cuz only girls with nice asses are COOL". DUH. As the father of 3 girls (6, 11 & 11) I share those same concerns. BUT, these shoes won't be marketed to kids in the same way their marketed to grown ass women that have let themselves fall into a state of Stay-Puft marshmellowy wackness. The same way their strategically marketed toward men, they will be marketed toward kids.

And lets not forget where we are. We're in AMERICA. The most gluttonous country on God's blue orb where child/teen obesity are OFF THE DAMN CHARTS. The funtionality of a product shouldn't be overshadowed by the way its marketed any damn way. That's why kids have PARENTS (a title which I admit can be pretty undeserved, but still...LOL). It's a parents DUTY to correct any ill-thought ideas children have about, well...EVERY AND ANYTHING.

I think it's pretty short-sighted and ignorant to simply bitch about the product being made available to kids because of how they were initially marketed toward one particular demographic. Just bcuz P90x has primarily been marketed toward middle aged white folks, that didn't stop me from gettin my black ass up and DOING IT. Why? Because the way a product is marketed shouldn't overshadow the effectiveness of it. If you're so concerned about your kid's weight and the potential that these shoes may help, then you should also continue being a parent and correct your kid's potential misunderstanding of the product's intended purpose.

ESPECIALLY since the product, while not the end all/be all of the fitness process (and being goofy-lookin as hell), WORKS.

Fresh Visuals: JC Poppe - Audio

JC POPPE
AUDIO - of or relating to the broadcasting, reproduction, or reception of sound.

How do I describe the feeling of listening to and watching JC Poppe’s new video entitled AUDIO?

It’s like getting hit on by the only fine chick in a bar full of ugly ones
It’s like your favorite NFL team just won the Super Bowl
It’s like going to the strip club and finding out today is 2-4-1 lap dances
It’s like the DJ always playing your favorite song as soon as you enter the club
It’s like finding out that your ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend gave her a STD (that bitch)
It’s like going home early on a Friday and getting paid for a full day
It’s like getting a hi-five from your girl right after sex
It’s like Charlie sheen after a 3 day bender with no breaks
It’s like your S.O. telling you it’s Threesome Thursday and you’re the toy
It’s like the best part of waking up with Folgers in your cup
It’s like finding $10 under the seat of your car when the gas is on empty
It’s like being married to a flexible smart supermodel that knows how to cook and clean

You don’t have to take my word for it, check it out for yourself and tell us how YOU feel!

THE TENS - Things Men DON'T Wanna See On Chicks This Summer

Look, every year there's some misguided, completely absurd "fashion trend" that women all go fkn crazy over that men don't fkn understand. Not only do we not understand it, but we actually are more TURNED OFF by it. But, since we wanna smang, we let ya'll live.

Well ladies, The men of AshyRadio lack the thirst essential to let that ish ride any longer.

So after taking a poll of the A.R.C. (AshyRadioCrew) I present to you...

The Top Ten Things Men Don't Wanna See on Chicks this summer (0'11).

Don't front, ya'll got homegirls rockin shit RIGHT NOW sittin across the damn couch from you weraing some ish they ain't got no business wearing. And even worse, you prolly told that b*tch she look TOO cute in it too.

Shame on you.

But...don't trip. You prolly guilty too.

So, in no particular order...

Learn somethin...

1. Ugg Boots - Look, I know they S'POSED TO BE COOL. But, in the Spring/Summer/Fall them jawns just look like hot boxes for ya sweaty ass toes. I mean damn...wearin BSP's and UGGHS?!!? Them shits ain't even cool in the WINTER, but to wear 'em when it's hot outside is just uber-fungal. Yeah, we thinkin bout ya hot ass, sweatin ass toes in them shits. PLUS you prolly wearin some damn thick ass white socks in them shits too. Just STOP...

2. Birth Control Patches - Let's be real. Men hate condoms and women hate condoms. While that ain't got shit to do wit STDs, being honest, catchin crabs is a LOT betta than catchin a CASE...like a PATERNITY case. So guys are more than happy to see a chick that's doing her part in combating the war of BabyDaddy/Babymomma'dom. BUT...the patch is without a doubt the most ghetto/trailerpark method of birth control known to man other than THE HANGER. Seriously, are you quittin Newports or dodging Ray-Ray's offspring? Nobody knows...and more than likely, neither do YOU.

3. Bald Heads - White girls; half ya'll ain't even half-cute. The other half ain't even got body like that. YOU ARE NOT AMBER ROSE and AIN'T NO NIGGA YOU GONE CATCH KANYE or WIZ KHALIFA. Black Girls; JUST. DON'T. DO. IT. Unless you're my homegirl @ArmedPropaganda...YOU CAN'T ROCK THAT SHIT.

4. Promise Rings - Seriously, promise/engagement/whateva. If you still takin yo ass out to da club/bar and puttin ur drunk ass self in position to get smeezed, we ain't tryin to see them shits nor hear ya regretful ass talkin bout how "you can't believe you just f*cked 2 guys at the same time behind a dumpster on Water Street" and how "your fiancée is never gonna forgive you". Shit...he shouldn't, but then again, we won't even REMEMBER YOU, so...I guess it all balances out. Just take them shits off and leave em in the car.

5. Hammertime Toes and Hardtimes Heels - Chicks are out here gettin pedicures like it ain't NO recession in America. PLUS, it ain't that much for a chick to just be at the crib and put one of them .99 cent footie-bricks to work and sand them shits down smoove. If you gonna wear flip-flops, sandals or go nekkid-toe make sure them jawns look right...

6. No Lacefronts or Multicolor Weaves - No Lacefronts. That one speaks for itself. YES, men can spot a lacefront just as, if not more easily than, a chick can. Ya'll have pointed them out, we just payed attention. And DAMN, if you gonna get a Gold&Blue&Maroon weave, REMEMBER, you can only wear ONE or ALL of THOSE colors while you rockin that shit. Cuz don't NONE of them shits match with purple or green.

7. Ur Kids - Ladies, understand this. From day ONE...or day 27, ain't no dude tryin to be "Uncle Eric" or "Step Daddy Steve". So, seriously...recognize and accept that it's a one night stand and/or f*ckbuddy relationship. IF it takes the turn to be more than that, deal wit it later. But tryin to set up a 1st date at the playground or havin a dude meet you at the lakefront for a playdate WIT YA RUGRATS is a recipe for "HELL NAW".

8. Titty Tattoos/Hood Tattoos - Contrary to what you or the tattoo obsessed guy you USED TO date told you, titty/cleavage tats are NOT CUTE. Think of all the shit you'll NEVER be able to wear again; wedding dresses...sundresses to family reunions...dresses to court cases...I'm just sayin. Oh, and HOOD TATS. If you EVER THINK ya baby daddy's JAIL or RAP NICKNAME is a good/cute idea to be memorialized IN INK on YOUR body...you've already lost. Just gone head and do that. The Quality Brothas will be OVER THERE in the part of the club YOU can't get into...

9. Guts/Lovehandles/BellyFat/MuffinTops - Look, you chicks KNOW when you're fat. There's a very WIDE line that separates "thick" and "fat". That line is most often YOUR STOMACH/WAIST/MIDSECTION. If your midsection measurement is greater than your titty and/or hip&booty measurements, YOU'RE LOSING. Work that shit out. Oh...whats that? You got KIDS? SO THE F*CK WHAT. Men don't care and don't accept that as an excuse. Do what you need to do or stop actin brand new when dudes see ur gut and put the stop/no/don't action on you.

10. ONE PIECE SWIMSUITS - Look, if you're rockin a one piece it means more than you could imagine to a man. Either you're...

A. Too insecure to rock a 2 piece (whether rightfully so or not, the insecurity is the issue)
B. Have no business wearing a 2pc: which means you're breaking multiple rules already.

Please, very few women under the age of 40 have justifiable reason to wear a one-piece. Those that do, more power to ya. We ain't tryin to see all that extra flap. But the majority are just too lazy to get they P90x or Zumba on to get it back tight pre-babymaking.




That about does it. Yes, there's PLENTY more, but these were just the top TEN things men hate that ya'll persist to put our optics thru dealing with. Damn ya'll for that too.

Honorable Mentions: Your boyfriend's or brother's clothes, shitty teeth, cheap ass gaudy jewelry, toe-jewelry on jank'd up feet, Crocs, Minnie Mouse eyelashes, tramp-stamps, tattoos of genitalia.
