The Rhyme-A-Whenever Project

Ok, so I haven't been keeping up, but here's a few more I've written lately.

The companion piece to the Selena Gomez rhyme? (Inspired by this video.)

When I met Blake Lively, she said, "Hey get inside me."
Accepted her advances with a toss and a twirl.
She said, "I think I love you." I said, "That's gossip, girl."

The hook to an imagined song called "Defriended."

Offended, defriended. I saw the topic trended.
Is that how USendIt?
Offended, defriended. I have to wonder when did
your tactics get so splendid.
Offended, defriended. I wish we never pretended.
These fences can't be mended.

More Belichick inspired goodness.

All I do is win like I'm Bill Belichick
If you think that I can lose then you don't know me yet
Man you're crying like you're coaching for the Jets
Rex Ryan, what you see is what you get
Three rings, it's time for you to kiss 'em
These things, all you do is miss 'em
When you're talking 'bout your stats and how your record glistens
Listen, a true winner shuts his mouth and buys into the system
You can tell I'm feeling nice, these are whispers of my wisdom

The Golden Rule

"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

What does this quote mean to you? To me, it means I "put myself in other people's shoes" when I make decisions that concern them. In other words, before I act I'll often ask myself, "how would I want other people to treat me if I was in the exact situation they're in now?" The answer to that question is the action I choose.

I believe this thought process/heuristic is not only morally, logically, and philosophically consistent, but extremely important, as it acknowledges the reality that other people exist and shape the world too, which is what makes humans necessarily social creatures.

(Disclaimer: The above post is just what's rattling around Jayemel's brain, and no one else's brain or any organization's Standard Operating Procedure or Manual or like concept, on a fall Sunday morning during a week when the Patriots don't play until Monday night.)

Rhyme-A-Day Project 11.29.10 - 12.3.10

11.29 + 11.30

You leave in a huff calling me a cheater
But the only way you're tough is if you're backed by PETA
I beata
with or without fur
And I don't need a tape to know how to make it purr
I'm sure
you confer
with your database of porn
That's the only way for you to get a taste when scorned
Be warned
I'm not the one to talk to
Like the Niners you're so bad I don't need to see your walk through
I got you
ready to throw in the towel
Terrible like Big Ben it's time you buy a vowel
I know you think you're mean, but you don't have a cape
What you lack is I, so r-p-e makes rape
Or rope, you'll hang yourself you dope
And nope, I don't mean to give you hope
I use my language properly
that's why you're never stopping me as I make these words my property
so the only way you're topping me
is if you pull a George and chop a tree
start over
build your own philosophy
because as long as you won't drop the G
you might as well be watching me


Wesley Snipes went to jail for tax evasion,
so why can't you go to jail for facts evasion?
Not the docs you ignored on this lax occasion
I mean the points that you scored on your crass vacation
or rather that you whored in slack initiation.


Judd Apatow taught me how to tap a ho
Cut the crap let's go, you've got a sack to blow

I like the mainstream cause I like production value
I don't listen to your shit cause it sounds like you're on Valium


I tapped her when she said she liked the raptor
I capped her when I put her out to pasture

I call my shower Katy Perry cause it runs hot 'n cold
and I think it's disgusting but no one sees the mold
