So I FINALLY finished printing ALL my orders dating back from last month when I relaunched Fur Face Boy. I gave this made-to-order thing a shot but I’m gonna stop doing that because it’s too stressful! So as of right now, I decided to not take anymore orders on FFB tee’s! The webstore is completely sold out. I’ll put some back up for sell if I have any extra inventory from this last print batch.
Now I’m going to label all of these tee’s and ship them out to all who ordered by week’s end. THANK YOU to everyone who made an order and patiently have been waiting! Your patience is MEGA-ULTRA-HYPER appreciated 👍👍👍👍

So I decided to start a new weekly Friday thing for this blog called FFB RANDOM. FFB RANDOM will be posts that have nothing to do with Fur Face Boy, so basically, it can be posts about pretty much ANYTHING. For the inaugural FFB RANDOM post, I will discuss to you my top 5 favorite R&B songs containing dedicated breaks of electric guitar…
So yesterday, I was at work randomly thinking about my life, specifically the year 2004. I thought about shit like Napoleon Dynamite, NBC’s Friends, Destiny’s Child, Jessica Simpson, Fahrenheit 9/11 and Chapelle’s Show. One skit that was extremely memorable to me from Chapelle’s Show was the one about black people not liking electric guitars…
So then that got me thinking if there was any black genre music / artists that had electric guitars in it and I EASILY came up with five personal favorites…
Ready For the World, Love You Down (2:57)…
Usher, U Got it Bad (3:35)…
Mint Condition, What Kind of Man Would I Be (3:15)…
TLC, Red Light Special (3:17)…
and of course, Michael Jackson’s, Beat It (3:10)…
Damn I miss music like this. Anyways, there you have it. Just a random thought from your friendly neighborhood…

Man, so a few weeks ago my friend Brent texted me about meeting up for dinner…
Brent LOVES to eat shit food, so my hopes weren’t high, but I met him up to try this place out anyways…
Gotta play by the rules…
At A-Star there’s pretty much your typical Asian buffet variety: Rice, noodles, beef, orange chicken, soups, egg rolls, chicken nuggets, crab, soggy fish, pudding, canned fruits, spongy cakes, etc…
There was also ‘fresh’ spring rolls here. Meh.
Brent hit ’em with the pizza, fried chicken wings and sushi combo. I told you, dude LOVES shit food and shit food combos…
The crawfish was NOT on point. When you crack one open, the meat is grey and limp as : (
They had a big selection of fresh sushi and sashimi though…
…and to be quite honest, the sushi and sashimi were pretty good. If it wasn’t for the sushi and sashimi, I would’ve easily gave this place a F+, but the sushi and sashimi, on top of the price bumped my grade up to a solid C- borderline D.
The soft serve ice cream machine couldn’t even hep curve up the C- borderline D grade though. The chocolate that came out was black as : (
Like I said, the pricing was pretty good for a buffet that had variety AND pretty good sushi and sashimi…
Like your typical Asian buffet, they give you fortune cookies at the end -__-
Brent gives this place a solid B and I’m sticking to my C- borderline D grade. This just goes to show that you may like it and you may hate it, so don’t take our grades so seriously, just do what your heart says. Everyone has their own opinion, this is just mine. Directions to A-Star Asian Buffet can be found HERE.
