Snoop Dogg Explained How Kobe Bryant’s Journey Was ‘A Perfect Mirror Of My Career’

Published

Carmelo Anthony and the Portland Trail Blazers are currently in a battle for the ninth seed in the Western Conference in the Disney Bubble in Orlando, but the former All-Star forward is still finding time to enjoy his wine with friends on his “What’s In Your Glass?” show on YouTube.

On Monday night, Anthony was joined by Snoop Dogg for a conversation about just about everything, from marijuana to wine to Snoop’s tips for reinventing yourself and much more. About midway through the conversation, Melo brought up their mutual friend Kobe Bryant’s passing earlier this year, and asked Snoop to explain to people his relationship with Kobe.

Snoop saw Kobe not just as a friend but someone who had followed a very similar path to him, explaining to Carmelo that he saw “a perfect mirror of what my career was” in Kobe’s journey in the NBA — at the 20:19 mark of the video.

“You know what, it was crazy, because you can look at our careers as being parallel,” Snoop says. “When he came in the league he was young, and when I came into the league I was young. And we came to great franchises, and at the same time we had to earn our position, wasn’t nothin’ given, and once we got it we didn’t look back. Whoever’s spot we took wasn’t ever getting back on the court again, and then from there we had to learn how to be a team player. From learning how to be a team player, we had to learn how to be a family man, then from being a family man, we had to learn how to adjust later in our careers to not being as good as we were — or as best as we could be. And then we had to adjust to life after, life after being the best basketball player in the world to being a businessman, a father, an advocate for women and basketball for girls.

“So that for me, that’s the perfect mirror of what my career was as far as the things that I’ve done with my football league and becoming a family man. Being a team player, going to No Limit Records, coming back home and building my things with the community where I’m from. And just watching me and him grow as friends, just being able to call him and say, ‘Man, that was beautiful what you did that movie you did about your basketball thing,’ and him to call me and tell me, ‘Man, when you did that thing, that performance.’ Like, hen we’d see each other it’d be more congratulations about me seeing his highlights and him telling me about my highlights. So those were moments that I could celebrate my highlights, because one of my friends and one of the guys I looked up to on the basketball court appreciated what I’d done as much as I appreciated him, and we had no problem saying that.”

They then laughed about how Kobe would always go out of his way to show Snoop love at games, only to return to the court “smelling like that stuff.” The entire conversation was really interesting, particularly when Snoop would talk about his career and his longevity, noting that he learned to tap into the youth and become “Uncle Snoop” without ever sacrificing who he was or his style to try and fit the moment. It was something you could clearly see hit Carmelo, who has had his own journey of reinventing himself while trying to figure out how to stay true to his playing style in the NBA, finding a snug fit in Portland currently.

District 31: La mort de ce personnage principal fait réagir!!!

****ATTENTION! Spoilers! Ne lisez pas si vous n’avez pas vu l’épisode du jeudi 17 septembre.****

Le Commandant Chiasson ne cessait de le répéter: Laurent vivait sur du temps emprunté!

Alors que tout le monde croyait que Daniel Chiasson (Gildor Roy) ou Patrick Bissonnette (Vincent-Guillaume Otis) allaient quitter le navire, pouf… Surprise, surprise! Voilà qu’on a eu droit à un revirement de taille ce soir à District 31: c’est finalement à Laurent Cloutier (Patrick Labbé) qu’on a dû faire nos adieux!

Il faut avouer que Laurent était de plus en plus nerveux et agressif dans les derniers épisodes, à cause de la fameuse histoire du vol des diamants et de la remise en liberté de François Labelle, entre autres! La tension était à son comble en ce début de 5e saison après que Patrick ait arrêté le membre des SS en plein interrogatoire musclé avec Virginie Francoeur, usant de torture, et finalement relâché par la suite par Chiasson.

Il faut l’avouer, le personnage de Laurent, joué magistralement par Patrick Labbé, nous aura fait passer par toute la gamme des émotions en cinq saisons. Laurent Cloutier est passé de lieutenant-détective véreux du 31 à infiltrateur repenti, conjoint de l’inoubliable Miss BBQ, au membre détesté des SS! Le tout, en restant le «bon vieux chum» numéro 1 de Daniel Chiasson, contre vent et marée. C’est d’ailleurs pourquoi on a fait un MÉCHANT saut lorsqu’on a vu le Commandant pointer son fusil sur son meilleur ami, à bout de nerfs contre lui, sur le pas de la porte de sa résidence.

«J’vas péter au frette, y’a trop de pression!» – Laurent

«J’men câlisse! Fais de l’air» – Chiasson

LA question qui tue: qui a tué Laurent?

Plusieurs personnes voulaient la tête de Laurent (Francois Labelle, Virginie Francoeur, etc.), mais tout porte à croire que Chiasson a conspiré avec le nouveau boss des SS (Paul Masson, joué par Rémy Girard) pour éliminer son ami de longue date qui était de plus en plus imprévisible et dangereux.

 

@Radio-Canada

 

Est-ce que Chiasson est toujours un membre actif des SS? On se pose la question plus que jamais. Parce que les petites rencontres en habit-cravate dans le parc entre Paul Masson et Chiasson ont de quoi faire jaser… Surtout lorsque, par la suite, Chiasson invite Laurent à souper chez lui pour s’excuser et jaser autour d’un verre de vin puis se débarrasse aussitôt de son cellulaire en le lançant dans le lac…

Impossible que Laurent ait survécu alors qu’il s’est fait tirer à neuf reprises, par deux personnes différentes (deux faux travailleurs de la construction), alors qu’il était en automobile. Et que dire de la réaction de Daniel Chiasson par la suite, qui ne pouvait contenir ses émotions au téléphone avec Carl St-Denis (Hugo Dubé)… mais qui semblait DÉJÀ connaître TOUTE la vérité… faisant semblant de ne rien savoir, en mettant le directeur du SPGM sur une fausse piste: François Labelle aurait-il orchestré la mort de Laurent, et ce, le jour de sa libération!?!

«Tsé Carl, le 31 juillet, il y a 24 ans, j’ai perdu mon grand chum Jacques Legrand. Il y a quatre ans, j’ai engagé sa fille comme SD au 31, pis là je perds mon meilleur ami qui vivait sur du temps emprunté depuis 4 ans… Le jour où François Labelle sort de prison!», confiait Chiasson au téléphone en pleurant.

Pensez-vous que Miss BBQ (alias Charlotte Legault) va sortir de sa cachette pour aller aux funérailles?!

Comme une mauvaise nouvelle ne vient jamais seule, on apprenait aussi en fin d’épisode que Patrick était suspendu pendant l’enquête du duo diabolique formé par Mélissa Corbeil et André Dallaire (Brigitte Paquette et Pierre-François Legendre). La prochaine tête à tomber? Chiasson risque lui aussi d’être suspendu!

D’ailleurs, une phrase de Mélissa Corbeil a agi comme un véritable coup de poing ce soir: «Je les ai échappés une fois ces estis-là, je ne les échapperai pas une deuxième fois… je leur dois un chien de ma chienne!»

Ouille! Les hostilités sont lancées!

Dans le teaser pour la semaine prochaine, on apprend que le fameux affidavit est faux et que l’écoute que les enquêtes indépendantes faisaient chez Patrick était légale, faite avec un mandat! Ça promet…

Psssst! La belle Geneviève Schmidt est en couple. Découvrez tous les détails ici!

John Lennon’s latest video ‘Mind Games’ is out and be ready to see a lot of glimpses of the Central Park!

Published

John Lennon has a blissful autumn day in Central Park in the video for “Mind Games,” off his upcoming box set Gimme Some Truth. The Ultimate Mixes.

The video — now upgraded to HD — was shot in November 1974, a year after he released the album by the same name. Wearing a slick black coat and a floppy hat to match, he strolls through Strawberry Fields and signs autographs for fans. He glances at ice cream and pretzels at a food cart before he feeds elephants at the Central Park Zoo and dances at the Naumburg Bandshell to an empty audience. Later, he visits Tiffany & Co., pays a visit to the marquee of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band on the Road and rides away in a horse-drawn carriage.

“[Mind Games] was a fun track because the voice is in stereo and the seeming orchestra on it is just me playing three notes with slide guitar,” the late Beatle said in an interview. “And the middle eight is reggae. Trying again to explain to American musicians what reggae was in 1973 was pretty hard, but it’s basically a reggae middle eight if you listen to it.”

“Trying to possess somebody makes them go away,” he said of the song’s meaning. “Every time you put your finger on it, it slips away. Every time you turn the microscope’s light on, the thing changes so you can never see what it is. As soon as you ask the question, it goes away. Peripheral vision is what it is. There’s no looking directly at it. Try to look at the sun. You go blind, right? Now that doesn’t mean you don’t have to work on it. Love is a flower, you gotta let it grow.”

September has been chock-total of tech launches and bulletins so far (mostly virtual, by natural means, because these are still covid occasions, following all). But the month’s not above still: Amazon has exposed that it is debuting its tumble product line on Thursday, Sept. 24.

“The Amazon Equipment & Companies crew invites you to sign up for us (practically) on Thursday, September 24, at 10 a.m. PT [1 p.m. ET], when we will share some news,” the company’s media invite reads.

Even though Amazon’s trying to keep restricted-lipped on what we can hope to see, it has historically made use of these situations to unveil updated gizmos in its Echo line and spotlight developments with its virtual voice assistant, Alexa. Its 2019 presentation confirmed off a whopping 14 new equipment, so this year’s celebration has some significant sneakers to fill.

Some of 2019’s reveals were being additional or less predicted, these as the debut of upgraded intelligent speakers like the Echo Studio, Echo Dot with an included clock, and the minuscule Echo Flex plug-in mini-speaker. But there were numerous surprises way too, together with Amazon’s very first Alexa-enabled earbuds, the Echo Buds, and several clever gizmos, which includes its Echo Frames smart glasses and Echo Loop ring.

Thinking about that Amazon postponed its annually Prime Day event earlier this summer, we’ll most likely get news on when consumers can hope those people deals to go are living as perfectly. The Amazon rumor mill has been rather dry these days, but there has been a little bit of chatter about a probable Wi-Fi 6 version of the Eero mesh router, as CNET notes. So that may well make an look as well.

The event’s invitation-only, indicating that it may possibly not be streamed to the community. Amazon opted to dwell-blog site the particulars about very last year’s item launch fairly than stream the presentation, and they could determine to repeat that tradition Thursday.

With Google teasing a Nest-branded stick to-up to its Google House and Apple rumored to have a funds model of its HomePod in the will work, the intelligent speaker market is heating up. And Amazon can not pay for to be complacent if it desires to hold rate with its opponents. This week’s occasion really should give us a fantastic appear at how it is scheduling on preserving its devices related as additional and far more good-what-have-yous compete for room in consumers’ houses.

What sort of components would you like to see Amazon unveil later this week? Allow us know in the comments. They’ve presently branched out into off-the-wall things like a intelligent oven and a clip-on tracker for your pet…possibly a sensible h2o bottle’s upcoming? Or a clever planter? God is aware of my poor snake plants would respect that a single.
