Karrine Steffans a.k.a (SuperHead) is Releasing Another Book

Posted by yoMcLovin on October 1, 2010

Karrine Steffans has put the d*cks down – well at least it looks like it.  She has been getting her money by releasing books that wind up on the Best Sellers list.  She has another sex tome coming at you…

*Perhaps being a video vixen pays off after a while. Karrine Steffans recently turned into a NY Times best seller as she is making ready her latest bit of sexiness, “SatisFaction: Erotic Fantasies for the Advanced and Adventurous Couple.”

It won’t be released until next year August unfortunately (for her fans), but there is great anticipation for this one. This will be her fourth publication as follow-up from her 2009 bestseller “Vixen Manuel: How to Find, Seduce, and Keep the Man You Want.”

“‘SatisFaction’ is half erotic fiction, half how-to, and 100 percent titillating,” says Steffans. “Pleasure yourself with each snippet, then come back, monthly, for more.”

Along with the new book, fans will have the chance to view her video trailer.

“It’s the first-ever book trailer mini-series. I’m looking forward to making the others,” she told BV Buzz. She’s working on getting her own boy toy for her next line of book trailers.

“I’m casting in Los Angeles for a hunky love interest. I’m also looking for extras for upcoming episodes too. I’m having fun with this new concept. I love being creative,” said the spider to the fly, er, Steffans.

Jay-Z releasing his first offical book “Decoded”

Posted by yoMcLovin on September 23, 2010

Jay-Z is making his latest entrepreneurial move in the world of publishing, with the upcoming release of his first official book Decoded. Shawn Carter is teaming up with publisher Spiegel & Grau to release the tome, which provides insight into the lyrics and life of the man from Marcy Projects.

 The book, boasting an inkblot from Andy Warhol’s Rorschach on its cover, tells the intimate stories behind 36 of Hov’s songs, with plans to release the book on November 16 as an eBook and an iPhone/iPad app that offers exclusive video and customizable content.

“When I first started working on this book, I told my editor that I wanted it to do three important things,” explained Jay-Z in a statement. “The first was to make the case that hip-hop lyrics—not just my lyrics, but those of every great MC—are poetry if you look at them closely enough.

“The second was I wanted the book to tell a little bit of the story of my generation, to show the context for the choices we made at a violent and chaotic crossroads in recent history. And the third piece was that I wanted the book to show how hip-hop created a way to take a very specific and powerful experience and turn it into a story that everyone in the world could feel and relate to.”

Is 30 the new 40?

Posted by yoMcLovin on August 20, 2010

In three years I will be turning 30 and if you were born in the early 80’s, it’s safe to say that you’re in the same boat.

There isn’t a day that goes by where my 23yr old girlfriend doesn’t remind me that I will soon be turning 30. She introduces me to her family and friends as “her 30 year old boyfriend”.  She bought me a cake for my 26th birthday that had a #30 candle on it and she claims they ran out of 26’s.

I was teaching my 4yr old daughter the difference between girls and boys, and this is how the conversation went;”Is mommy a boy or girl?” she says “Mommy is a girl” I asked her if her Uncle Rell is a boy or girl? Her reply was “Uncle Rell is a boy daddy”. Then I asked if daddy was a boy or a girl? Her response was “you’re a dad, daddy” and starting laughing. Her response made me feel old and I found myself in the mirror looking for gray hair.

My brother has challenged me and loss in every sport known to mankind and still claims that I’m old and can’t keep up with the bucks.

I’m not running from 30 I am actually going to embrace it even though it may hit me harder than a pro linebacker on an un-expecting quarterback. Any remaining swag that I currently have will be lost when I turn 30.

My attitude towards a lot of things will begin to change. I have noticed that once I turned 25 my fashion sense has changed dramatically from flashy, baggy clothes to a more conservative, clean look. The only flashy items left in my possession are my gadgets (cell phones and electronics) they do the flashing for me now. I can only imagine what my image will be like once I reach 30, it would probably imitate that of “The Cosby Show” slacks and sweaters.

My taste in music will most likely stay the same just not played as loud. No more loud glass shattering sub-woofers in my trunk or 28” rims on my mini-van (joking I don’t drive a mini-van).

Also my interest in politics, the stock market, and world news will increase greatly due to the fact that any fluctuation in these could negatively affect my property values, retirement plans and kids futures.

I don’t see anything wrong with turning 30, as they say in the club before it closes “last call for alcohol” 29 is my last call the party was good while it lasted but now I have to get ready for work on Monday…….
