TRKB Ep 8: Wrestlemania Fallout & Hydra

Submit. Submit. Submit!

Green

To Dylan,

Green is the color I most enjoy seeing. A sign of health. Vitality. Most importantly…

GROWTH.

April has that tendency to really boost my natural energy, it just feels like the winter is finally over. Kind of like Simon Gotch’s WWE run.

The theme of the 8th is coming up green. Window down, spring breezing jams for you to boogie down to.

Wale – “The Breeze” ft Wiz Khalifa

Feel that? Is it the feeling of the cool? Well…it should be. Wale, like every single To Dylan, Love Stoney, has a way to just zip lines through songs with Razor Ramon like precision. Plus a top of the cap to wrestling is always fun in his songs…”I’m smoking on that voodoo and that’s word to Papa Shango”.

Glass Animals – “Life Itself”

A new find! Thank goodness for new people to bring new things into life! I love discovering new bands then back catalog tracking. Glass Animals is one funky band with great sounds that pierce my ever jigging spirit.

I know you are doing your little dance, Dylan.

The Devil Makes Three – “Do Wrong Right”

My country roots led me to discover my affinity for bluegrass. The Devil Makes Three hails from all over the state’s but when together….”if you want to make a little mess, you wanna do a little crime…if you’re gonna do wrong better do wrong right.”

The road certainly doesn’t last forever!

Pepper – “Start You Up”

It’s sundown and you’re venturing out for the evening…what better song to get the night started than “Start You Up”. It’s that fresh of breath air, that growth in you to have the confidence to level up.

That’s it for the 8th insanely green To Dylan, Love Stoney. Make sure you hit up the Spotify playlist to ensure you don’t miss a week! Like 7 days, that’d be weak….like James Ellsworth.

Love,

Stoney

TRKB Ep 7: HUMBLE. Wrestlemania Preview

Let’s just get it out of the way to kick off episode 7 of the most terrifying pop culture wrestling show of all time…ba-bay!

I mean in case you missed it on To Dylan, Love Stoney Vol 7, which you really shouldn’t have…Kendrick Lamar blesses us with the glorious hit, Humble. April 7th cannot arrive soon enough and I’m 1200% positive that it will be discussed or possibly even reviewed on the next Rolling Knee Bar… check that ish out…yo.

This week’s episode is chock full of awkward inappropriateness that is Dylan & Stoney & Owen Hart. Comics in the corner is back on the block like Young Jeezy…what do we think of Boom! Studios WWE Wrestlemania #1 Annual and our respective body slamming picks of the week, ya bish.

Stoney puts his belt on the line like Scarface’s nose on coke against Dylan in the Wrestlemania pick segment. Who will tap out? Who will…submit…submit…submit! to The Rolling Knee Bar! Now!

You Are The BEST

There is a fine line between being confident, and being conceited. Just ask Ty Dillinger who was known to have confidence issues how it can impact how you perform or live. Being conceited will straight up stunt individual growth. Be humble.

Welcome to Volume 7 of the most wave worthy playlist ever…To Dylan, Love Stoney. Bite on in to this absolutely insane blend of melodies to submit, submit, submit to!

Kendrick Lamar – “HUMBLE.”

I know I tend to stick to throwbacks like The Revival for the TDLS playlist but holy Foley…this is the Kendrick I love. He shines on the track, waxes that ass and sits everyone down.

Jetpack Jones – “On Time”

On this Don Diestro produced track Jetpack reminds all that “everything happens on its’ own time…when it’s supposed to.” A slick reminder to not let that confidence of yours to get shook and things will happen as they should. If you keep your head down you never know what you’ll miss.

Nina Simone – “Feeling Good”

If you haven’t been watching Legion on FX then I can’t help you. Or your confidence. Aubrey Plaza is absolutely brilliant, like Mark Henry fake retirement speech brilliant. So catch the show, get feeling good. Enjoy the Aubrey dance video and check out the Spotify playlist for the original version of “Feeling Good” by Nina Simone.

Wale – “The Girls On Drugs”

Insecurity breeds lack of confidence, or is it vice versa. I can’t tell them apart like the Usos. Ever so introspective Wale speaks on the hunger that some females show when wanting to be seen…heard…loved.

“Let me tell you about the women I be chilling with,
Told me nobody love her, that’s why she cut her wrist,
Not close enough for the hospital but cut it close,
That’s why she want to get high cuz she be feeling low,
Told me pour me a vodka, pill and little smoke,
So I could numb her insides and we will never know”

Find your inner confidence, find your light, stay humble and listen to To Dylan, Love Stoney right here on the Spotify playlist!

Love,

Stoney

TRKB Ep 6: WWE Comic #3 Crossfaced

 

Oh, I see you’ve found the 6th edition of the ultimate in submissions…The Rolling Knee Bar.

This week’s episode is all about Matt Morgan. Ok, maybe Raw & Smackdown reviews and the infamous segment, Comics From The Corner.

And if you just came here for The Miz…you are not awwwwweeesommmme….but here you go anyways:

hiiiPower

Why are there “3 i’s to my alumnis”? What is hiiiPower? Does this involve hiiiFlyer Rob Van Dam?

The advent of hiiiPower was given birth by TDE’s own, Ab-Soul. According to Kendrick Lamar, in an interview with hiphopdx.com, hiiiPower is much greater than it appears:

“Hiiipower: the three i’s represent heart, honor and respect. That’s how we carry ourselves in the streets, and just in the world, period. Hiiipower, it basically is the simplest form of representing just being above all the madness, all the bullshit. No matter what the world is going through, you’re always going to keep your dignity and carry yourself with this manner that it don’t phase you. Whatever you think negative is in your life. Overcoming that and still having that self-respect.”

Ever since I heard the first song of this playlist I was hooked like the Mandible Claw in Triple H’s grill. Without further ado I bring to you the 6th volume of To Dylan, Love Stoney: hiiiPower.

Kendrick Lamar – “hiiiPower”

The blueprint for hiiiPower! A wise man (yes, Kendrick) once said…”build your own pyramids, write your own hieroglyphs”. How does that resonate with you? Are you following your own path or just following the path laid out in front of you by others? Watching Iron Fist this reminds me of Joy Meachum, would she be at Rand if her family didn’t push her that way? I don’t think so.

Isaiah Rashad – “Wat’s Wrong” ft Kendrick Lamar & Zacari

Isaiah is one of the fresher TDE acts but dude just hits it out of the park everytime and his bars keep pace with the other great acts in TDE. Just take a listen and tell me you don’t want more. Up and coming like Cien.

Wale – “Keep It Moving” ft Ab-Soul & Magazeen

Although you won’t find this track on the Spotify playlist (see below), the whole Festivus album by Wale is James Worthy of a download, big game. This particular track features back and forth bars by Wale and Ab-Soul with a delightful last verse by legend Magazeen. What are you waiting for? Keep it moving and listen already!

Schoolboy Q – “Birds & The Beez” ft Kendrick Lamar

My favorite Schoolboy Q song. Birds & The Beez hits hard with more bromance than Breeze and Fandango. Q goes in with the realism that is life on the street and what that could mean to his family and how he recognizes that life is wrong…but it’s survival. Kendrick comes in to remind Q that all he wants his for him to succeed for his family. “Blue pill, red pill, choose now…birds or the beez”.

I sincerely hope that music helps you someway in life and reminds you of what you are capable of. Thanks for listening to the 6th installment of To Dylan, Love Stoney. Check out the hiiiPower of the Spotify playlist right herrreee…

Love,

Stoney

TRKB Ep 5: Grapplin w/ God…Comics

5 Episodes in and The Rolling Knee Bar…well…is rolling. In the big 5 episode anniversary of The Rolling Knee Bar….wrestling is talked about, what is up with Dana Brooke? Is ACV all that? Will Stoney’s googly eyes for Luke Harper wreck the show? Is Dylan lost or fine?

Find out now on The Rolling Knee Bar!

ACV’n…IT

 

I am on a Y2J role lately if you’ve rolled along with Knee Bars and have paid attention. In my humble opinion, this latest run has absolutely been his best work in a while. I did enjoy the Punk – Y2J feud, thought it was pretty intense between the two best talkers at the time. But right now…killing….it.

Y2J is the Apple Cider Vinegar of the WWE. Drink it in, mannnnn.

ACV is loaded with a plethora of health benefits on the inside and outside. Drink a tbsp. of ACV a day and assist your body in balancing its’ natural acidity and aids in digestion.

How do I ingest my ACV? Well since baking with it kills all the goodness, I drink mine (2 tsp)….with water (20 oz)…and matcha (1 tsp)…and fresh lemon juice. Do not drink it straight since that ish will burn the throat and leave you like Kane. I also enjoy mine while listening to….

I’m not just a talking head…I do this.

Another rad treatment with ACV is mixing a touch with your Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay. It’s awesome for the face and with fu manchus…

Don’t be scared…of my face or ACV. Go…get…go get some today! Ay!
