Finally I Can Talk About Snoop Dogg

I figured I’d start this post off with a beautiful photo. Nice jumpsuit.

The man is actually insane, I’m pretty sure. Anyways, I love books like these (except for the part where it’s written like my mom’s sophomore students’ narrative essays – ps i love the use of “overstand”) but the story is nicely eye-opening for people who live sheltered lives who ignore all of this kind of stuff happening in the real world. Monster’s life is very depressing, and makes it even more depressing that he thinks this is how life just is and he thinks it’s so normal – almost like Henry in Goodfellas. He didn’t like “normal” life and he missed crime and screwing around. It is also like Goodfellas in that it follows his life from the very beginning of the crime through where he is now. I noticed the similarities while watching the movie and thought it was great how we looked at these things to close together. Two different sides of the country, two very different lives of crime, but still crime nevertheless.

    I love the way you connect Monster and Goodfellas almost as much as I love Snoop’s suit. Kody and Henry both grew up in environments where criminal culture was the normal thing, and to live any other way just lacked common sense, as far as they could see. So can they be faulted for their actions? On the other hand, Henry, Kody and Snoop were all telling their own stories. They had some motivation to show themselves look good
