2012; Whats The Prognosis?

These funk doctors conduct observations...2012 has come to a close;  whose asking about the prognosis?

Dr Dunkenstein credentials!!  like Darrell Griffith..a Louisville brotha carrying a sword of truth...hitting up these nations and different situations; the assignment?  I chose this!

Official with this...trying not to fall off fiscal cliffs; but the devil will oppose this..I was taught that by the old school baptist preacher! 

...up in Newburg!! much respect to Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg; may the healing process reach ya! 

Grew up with hood goodfellas; but we emerge out of the darkness; noticed a lot of folks are still waiting! 

Didn't merge with the apparatus..what did they tell us? please!! Deliberate Falsehoods are going down...its easy to get fired like NFL coaches;  check how we approach this....we kept it moving while others were still hating!

 Check the status..we didn't urge some; they were still stargazing!!  said its so amazing like Luther!

Whats the prognosisupgraded like Android 4.2 Jelly Beans? observing these scenes...now ready to roll ..but I noticed lethal doses were administered by jokers like Lucifer!

Jokers act like they knew this bruh....but check how I roll.. I'm a Midwest bruh  down here in the ATL! 

I analyzed the information...checking it out like observing Quadrantid meteor showers;  2012...approaching the last hours..some are paralyzed in the situation; coping strategies fail! 

Some fell for the okey doke...meanwhile beats and English are broken as I handle business! 

....before it handles me; losses and defeats analyzed as I determine the prognosis!

Going Through The Rites and Rituals / As 2012 Ends

Were all up in the spot; 2012 is coming to a close...I still see players going through their rites and rituals! 

They went on with their bad selves; like the  GOP and fiscal cliff talks; ...a player wasn't pimping he just stalks...more than global warming is making it hot; a drunk smells like Kentucky distilleries!!  plus smokers smell like reefer; I see a bunch of habituals!

Louisville barely beats Kentucky...the system tries to corrupt me...Superstorms like Sandy make some lose it!! so I guess jokers need these and those medications! 

Dorms are under attack like the crisis in Syria...check the mass hysteria....calling cards and evidence gave us the indications! 

No benevolence!! like Dos Santos beaten by Velasquez in UFC 155;  now caught up in unpleasant situations!!  all up in the system / matrix! 

Some are caught up..chilling / staying thirsty like Dos Equis drunk by Santa after Christmas......while others are trying to deal with this;  going through rites and rituals...as habituals fake it!

Its all love? please!! you'll get shoved off the subway platform;  I couldn't take it..so I dipped on them!

Where you at? that was the question per Jennifer Hudson; whats up with them? slick surfaces they slipped on! 

....wearing Stacy Adams and Steve Maddens; going through rites and rituals...its easy to come undone! 

They damned us if we did or didn't!!  but we kept it moving..we  had a nice run! 

"It ain't nothing nice" though..some rites and rituals conjure up bad spirits! 

Check the cosmic karma; reality checks are cashed..plus files
are full of demerits!

I Wasn't Fooling With Them

 As we proceed and continue; some jokers were acting funny like the GOP during fiscal cliff talks..so  I wasn't fooling with them! 

True indeed the saga / struggle continues; so that means I'm not through schooling them! 

Class is in session as we keep approaching reality checkpoints per Logistics! 

Blasted on during the aggression like New York fireman;  some jokers were flexing like a North Korea missile launch; they said its the next big thing!!  holiday season just passed...what can brown do for you per UPS Logistics?

Logic after the statistics were studied? please!!  check the information overload! 

.....after doing the math; climate change meeting with staff /players ball convention ....geeks transformation to a drug overlord? 


Check out the rest of this article at..Random Thoughts From A Brotha: I Wasn't Fooling With Them

Doing The Math /The Aftermath PT.2

Doing the math...like homicides tabulated in Chicago and NYC;  reflecting on episodes that transpired during 2012! 

Taking that path...the surroundings were unfamiliar...but in NYC were clocked by the domain awareness system...but I went on with my bad self! 

Whose faking? in a world full of unfamiliar spirits..some are caught up in the system / matrix...now the staff shrunk; after they played a role in the Composure / Exposure! 

Doing the math ...20 /20 hindsight aftermath...now like Senators behind the scenes working on the fiscal cliff...I'm dropping this funk and the good word; I heard some were looking for closure! 

Doing the math...post-holidays...the aftermath..chilling out...drinking coffee like Cliff at IHOP...knowing the devil will oppose ya; whose victimized by Deliberate Falsehoods?

From one level to another..from Cointelpro to even Operation Northwoods!

Were rolling from one level to another...avoiding Dekalb Police looking for weapons of mass destruction like in Iraq; we're rocking it...rolling down I-20 in Atlanta listening to the Northwoods Improvisers!

Were rolling!! dealing with one devil or another; they're acting false in these hoods!  but it doesn't surprise us!

Were rolling!!  with the sword of truth in the midst of so many falsehoods..but we were wise to the setup..

Dipping down I-20 in Atlanta in the Honda Accord..system bumping..providing proof that the mothership has landed..also that we can't let up...

Mistakes were made like Morsi with the Egyptian constitution but we come forth to rebuke the confusion... 

Fakes try to score on me during the Total Chaos...I knew they were  part of the problem and not the solution...

The danger zone was full of so called "free radicals"  ...indications were they'll cause some to  jump off the fiscal cliff! 

Word from Harry Reid..true indeed...but I'm no stranger to the madness....but O-Zone is going off with this!

No stranger to the madness or Total Chaos...things can blow up like shattering cookware!

Friends and Strangers by Ronnie Laws plays while a bruh cruises down I-20 in Atlanta...thoughts scattering;  as a crook goes there!

Dealing with known and unknown dangers...scattered thoughts are collected / check the aftermath;  but haters fire on us like New York firefighters!

 Battered and bruised egos undergo the healing process after one did the math; word from these Parliament Flashlighters!

What mattered? insights were the barometer..like Morsi in Egypt some claim they made mistakes.. 

What mattered? revealed during the aftermath..after doing the math..as we go there..way way out there...we still deal with these fakes...

Not wrecking things out..like the vehicle..giving the media ammunition…like Spike Lee vs Django Unchained…

Or holding high capacity magazines like NBC News…please!!  through the ga
laxy we cruise..the brotha O-Zone maintained...

But wishing it was a simple thing…like we wish they could avert going over the fiscal cliff…

Wishing it was a simple thing…cosmologists say due to 12/21/2012 things will change..as our Solar System enters the Great Rift.

All Up In The Spot / The Aftermath

 Damn here we go again!! its the day after Christmas..whats the deal with this? its the aftermath... were all up in the spot! 

Some are stranded due to bad weather...another on the inside said whatever...word from Egypt's President Morsi.. now its on again!! somebody adjusted the thermostat making it hot!

 Others need to "go on with that" .. faking it!! like the cell found in the United Arab Emirates...the plot or scheme will be exposed! 

Authorities are on to that!! setting up security checkpoints; some won't be composed! 

Hot stories or messages are composed; after getting gaffled at reality checkpoints! 

Hostile territories have the citizens baffled!! like LA Lakers without Nash...I laugh at the ones they anoint!

Chilling Out / Laying In The Cut / Minding and Tending PT.2

Whats up with it?  dude was chilling out!! not a super hero like Jamie Foxx in Django Unchained;  your dude was just laying in the cut!

 Minding and tending...O-Dog rocks...O-Zone maintained..but I spotted players hoping they'll make the team; praying they'll make the cut!

Word from Notre Dame vs Alabama...whose caught up in the drama? these light workers were spraying light into the cut, on those  jokers who were waiting in the dark! 

Others were at the starting point  like Boxing Day sales in the UK;  whose waiting for the green light per John Legend vehicles waiting in park!

 Brothas like me were in the heart of this thing...rocking it..that's how we play...but not anointed; no urban legend, no fame, or notoriety! 

Brothas like me were in the heart of this thing...like winter storms in the US;  some were caught up in the game..while I exercised diplomatic immunity! 

Your dude dipped back to the community...laying in the cut..minding and tending...after I went back to the source;  a bruh was cruising down Broadway up in Louisville! 

Attitudes were like whatever!! but some are winning some are losing; word from Robert Griffin III!!  you heard? meanwhile this brotha had to chill! 

Longitude and latitude were calculated by satellites;  was it like the Eye In The Sky per the Alan Parsons Project?  I knew the deal so check the insights! 

Laying in the cut...minding and tending...from the Park Hill projects in Louisville to to settlements in Palestine..knowing the apparatus was corrupt; suspending privileges and rights!

Chilling out / laying in the cut / minding and tending  is the status; as we do this!! Flashlights like Parliament were shining! 

Laying in the cut!! but soon back at this..intergalactic like Quasars ...shining!

Alan Parsons Project - Sirius/Eye In The Sky

 Digital Crate Digging Continues....checking out beats / rock songs / funk songs / jazz songs when I ran across this gem (s)  by the  Alan Parsons Project called Sirius/Eye In The Sky.

 The Alan Parsons Project were a British progressive rock band, active between 1975 and 1990 consisting of singer Eric Woolfson and keyboardist Alan Parsons surrounded by a varying number of session musicians.
 
Old Chicago Bulls fans from the Jordan / Pippin days may remember Sirius being played before the Bulls were introduced. 

Eye In The Sky is like a epiphany / synchronicity type of moment. Just read something about the City of Atlanta adding more security cameras to spy on citizens. Plus NYC has the domain awareness system

Eric Woolfson, the songwriter and vocalist of Eye In The Sky, spent a lot of time in casinos and in commercial districts, fascinated by the hidden security cameras that monitor gamblers and shoppers, hence the theme of the song.

The song is also in part a reference to George Orwell's classic novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, regarding a possible future in which individual privacy is virtually non-existent due to the ever-watching eye of Big Brother.  Check it out!!

Life Is Hectic / The Scripture and The Mixture


As we proceed and continue; trying to keep our heads above water per the Good Times theme song!

Everybody is going through something…some fire on firemen up in Rochester;  even those flexing are weak,  even though they seem strong!


Correcting errors!! it seems I’m wrong… but unlike the NRA I’m not afraid to admit it!


Correcting errors!! spotted while I was chilling / zoning… life is hectic!!  even failed a few times;  not ashamed to admit it!


Connecting with the higher power like I was the 2011 AG5 asteroid…not paranoid but a bruh is way way out there!!  staying committed to the breakbeat scientific business!


Reality check cashing when clashing with so-called titans;  bearing witness to how hectic life is!
