time on my hands

This is street ra-dio, for unsung heroes
Ridin in they regal, tryin to stay legal
My daughter found Nemo, I found the new primo
Yeah you know how we do, we do it for the people
And the struggles of the brothas and the folks
With lovers under dope, experiment to discover hopes
Scuffle for notes, the rougher I wrote, times were harder
Went from rocky starter to a voice of a martyr
Why white folks focus on dogs and yoga
While people on the low end tryin to ball and get over
Lyrics are like liquor for the fallen soldiers
From the bounce to the ounce, its all our culture
Everyday we hustlin, tryna get them custom rims
Law we ain't trustin them, thick broads we lust in them
Sick and tired of bunchin it, I look on the bus at them
When I see them struggling, I think how I'm touchin them
The People

Common (The People)
"Practice make perfect."

That's what I keep telling myself.

I've been MIA on some of the blogs but there's a good reason. It's this game. It's what I call the UTW (ultimate time waster) . Never worry...I'll be on your blogs tomorrow. Until then...I'm gonna dedicated these next few hrs to my new UTW...NCAA Football 09 on Xbox 360

Taking on all challengers! LOL

What about you? What is the thing that you do that you waste time on?



Stew said...

i really do not know what i do to waste time. i guess i can say that i read blogs to waste time. also i play video games, but i can not get into sports games anymore. is that bad??? i also go surfing for new programs to install on my computers. download music, drink.

i waste alot of time

Jackie E. said...

i waste waay to much time watching reality tv. i really need to get that in check, lol!

The Jaded NYer said...

I waste all my time on blogger and twitter and youtube and alluc.rg and all freakin' day long.

it's a sickness...

eclectik said...

I'm all over the NCAA 09 That and Soul Calibur all day (Less now that the actual season has started), WAY better than Madden
My Time waster is my messageboard
But it's excellent...good convo

..oh and all my TV shows


dessex said...

Don't call it wasting time...cali it taking a break.

Madden is my game all day long. My girl hates that I own an xbox360 because I can play that thing all day.

I also waste my time playing least 4 times a week.

Keisha "Kitten" Isaacs said...

Hey Brother!

Can I just say thay Common is hot business!!!!

So your cheating on your blog family with a video game???? Shame on you Mr! I'll let you slide since I know how much you love football and I'm sure you're in your element playing "that blog wrecking heffa" XBOX 360!....LOL

On to your question...I'd say reading blogs...but then again it's not reallly a waste of time because I actually learn new things, I've met great people, and I get to share the word of God....more like Good Times...then a waste of time... :)

rawdawgbuffalo said...

Big O said...

Darius T. Williams said...

PCD (Pretty Circle Drawer) said...

Beautifully.Conjured.Up said...

surfing the internet and painting my fingernails

Rezidl said...

...talkin' to you on twitter, talkin' to you and the fellas on email, textin' you about world takeover and watchin' you and Jaded go at it over NY are waaay too involved in my day, bruh!!!

The Jaded NYer said...

@rezidl- SOFTBALL?!?!

*mumbles under breath*

Oh no he didn't!!!!

TravelDiva said...

blogging and now facebook. LOL.

Brown Girl Gumbo said...

Online shopping!! I need to find a new way to waste time. Well, I guess I don't always buy something so it's ok. LOL! :-)

Ms. Jones said...

I waste way too much time surfing the internet, its just a vicious cycle though so can you blame me? You click one link only to click on another and another and another lol

ShellyShell said...

I waste too much time surfing the net, reading blogs and now Facebook! I'm about to go and get Wii so I guess I'll be wasting a lot more time getting my tennis and bowling in!

Anonymous said...

The internet and DVDs are the biggest. I have to do much better. I have good grades to obtain.

Rich said...

blogging -- duhh!

Tha L said...

i watch waaaaayyyyy too much Family Guy. Time wasted, but that shit is freakin' hilarious. I know, I've got a dissertation to write...maybe I should figure out how to make it relevant to the show, then I can say I'm doing important research instead of wasting endless hours.

Muze said...

i waste too much of my day reading blogs! lolol.

haven't been by here in a while though. how you be kyle?

LOVE that common song. always reminds me of Obama. and the music is SICK.

hope you get the game down. lol.

Sexxy Luv said...

I spend a lot of my time blogging and emailing but i enjoy the two so they are not a waste of time! :)

Miss Mika said...

Similar to what others have said, the internet occupies a great deal of my time. I am on it at work, I am on it when I get home until the wee hours of the morning...

I need to go outside!

I remember when I first got GTA, I was HOOKED! All I did for a while was go to work and come home and play that darn game.

That is a big reason I didn't get the latest one... I know how I can get.

Video games, television, online shopping, blogging etc all seem to be ways to relax. Relaxation is very necessary to help cope with this stressful insane world. I think video games etc (or whatever your passion is) aren’t a waste of time unless they cause you or someone else harm. Or if you are neglecting someone or something important (like looking for a job) to sit on the sofa all day to play video games ( while running up the electric bill that you cant pay).

I waste time on stupid reality TV shows. I've been better lately just because I haven't had time to watch all of it on the TIVO

The Flyyest said...

Keith said...

on Fridays.
