Avatar – The Way of Water (dir. by James Cameron) 
James Cameron is still out there, trying to push the envelope. My showing of Avatar: The Way of Water was not only 3D, but in HFR (High Frame Rate), which threw me for a loop. The only other movie I've ever watched on a large...

The Rain (by DMX) 

I had hoped that after suffering a heart attack last week, DMX (Earl Simmons) would pull through. It was asking a lot. The heart attack left him on life support and basically brain-dead. His family called it today. DMX passed away today at 50. The Rain is one of my favorites of his, showcasing the struggles he went through.

He’ll be missed.

Lyrics:

Now I know only I can stop the rain
Now I know only I can stop the rain
It’s not that we gotta do what we do
It’s what we know, so to me it ain’t nuttin’ but bein’ true but
Now I know only I can stop the rain
It doesn’t have to be the way it is, you say it is
Just because for the past twenty years, every day it is
Now I know only I can stop the rain
I wanna be able to walk out my front door
Without worryin’ about comin’ in conflict with the law, ’cause
Now I know only I can stop the rain
If I follow him, they’ll follow me
And I’ll speak life into the word that you can see, ’cause
Now I know only I can stop the rain
We get away with everyday shit but everyday shit
Catches up to you and when it does you can’t say shit
Now I know only I can stop the rain
If I don’t, you will, when I won’t, you steal
What makes it feel like we gots to kill?
Now I know only I can stop the rain
How many more lives must we lose?
How many more times must we choose to trust these fools?
Now I know only I can stop the rain
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it
I gave it to you straight don’t mix it, twist it up on some slick shit
Now I know only I can stop the rain
I don’t have to talk to it any more
I don’t have to walk to it any more, I’m out the door
Now I know only I can stop the rain
I wanna find peace with the Lord
I don’t wanna find a beast with the sword, I can’t afford to
Now I know only I can stop the rain
When every day of my life
Is a constant fight between wrong and right
Now I know only I can stop the rain
I thank you Lord for my life
Thank you Lord for keepin’ it loose when things got tight
Now I know only I can stop the rain
Only I can stop the rain
Only I can stop the pain, yea
Now I know only I can stop the rain
Only I can stop the rain, stop the rain, yea
Only I can stop the rain, ’cause the rain falls on me
Now I know only I can stop the rain
Only I can stop the rain
