>I happened to see a commercial last night as I was watching The Daily Show (a repeat, darnit). I was immediately riveted. It didn’t hurt that it starred Jay-Z


…of whom I’m a big fan. The commercial was very well-done and clever as hell. I don’t know how long it’s been out, but I definitely like it. You know, a lot of these other hip-hop cats could learn a lot from Jigga and the moves he makes, starting with doing cool commercials like this.

And check this out: it’s about a computer!! Way cool. See it for yourself.

  1. >The illuminati symbol is more of a pyramid. The Roc-A-Fella Diamond (as explained on Wikipedia – yeah, I took the time to look it up) is a hand guesture used to show support and representation of Roc-a-Fella Records. The diamond is formed by holding up your hands, palms out, and spreading the thumb and index finger into the shape of a geometric "kite" or diamond. The Roc-A-Fella diamond can be seen in several music videos from Roc-A-Fella artists, including Jay-Z's video for "Numb/Encore" and Kanye West's video for "Diamonds from Sierra Leone"; that song in itself, sampled from the theme to the James Bond film Diamonds Are Forever, is a play on the Roc-A-Fella diamond (and thus the label) being around forever.The Roc-A-Fella diamond recently came under fire from former professional wrestler Diamond Dallas Page, claiming that the it is a violation of the copyright that he holds on his trademark "Diamond Cutter" guesture. Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson can be seen making the gesture after he makes a big play, but it actually a reference to the name of his team's stadium (Arrowhead).
