For The Day: Rich Homie Quan “Gamble”

It’s good to see RHQ back in the game with this new visual for “Gamble”. He’s made his rounds on the media circuit (Everyday Struggle and DJ Vlad for example) and it seems he’s preparing for a comeback of sorts and I’m all for it.

No One Wants To Hate Their Job

There’s nothing worse than waking up for a job that you hate. Lying in bed, struggling to remove sheets and covers as you try to ignore the alarm on your iPhone that plays the same portion of Tyler The Creator’s “I Ain’t Got Time” like it does EVERY morning feels like penance for some foul act that you committed in a past life. Make your way to the bathroom and stare at a worn face in a mirror, shake your head then pray that the shower rids you of your current neanderthal like disposition. After you put on your “appropriate” work attire, reality sets in as you walk out the door that the next 8 hours of your life will be just another battle in an ongoing war with no foreseeable end.

For The Night: Gorillaz “Strobelite”

I love the Gorillaz. Like I REALLY love the Gorillaz and I REALLY love this record. After a long goofy ass day at the plantation, watching this cool visual set in a nightclub filled with colorful characters is just what I needed to end my night on a positive note. If you haven’t heard the Gorillaz latest album Humanz, you are missing out.

FullSizeRender 5

Mike Beon, Dame, and Myke, 2nd Street Festival, 2017

I had little to no energy this weekend due to a last minute over time at work. Yesterday, I headed to a pool party but my vibe was off so I opted to check out the 2nd Street Festival instead since I was in the area. North Star Bowl, Live Performances, and Food Trucks (Cheese Curds by¬†The Cow And The Curd are the greatest!). I’m happy to have ended a draining weekend on a positive note. Shout out to my homie Ron Clark for being in the mix.

Can’t Wait! Mr. Robot: Season 3 “Democracy” Trailer

I was a bit late to the game with this innovative series but after binge watching the first season on Amazon, I was devoted to Mr. Robot. Season 2 was just as good if not better and Season 3 looks like it may take the series to new heights.

8.6.17 Thoughts…

1. Everything that you need to succeed is in your environment. To further explain my point, we can use the historical perspective. The indigenous peoples of the Americas lived off of the land by becoming very familiar with all of their resources. Everyday living produced live or die scenarios. There were no luxuries as we know them, only bare necessities. They weren’t saying “If we only had arrowheads made out of titanium, then we could really hunt deer!” because all that they did have in their possession was all that they needed. We psyche ourselves out by thinking that we aren’t enough or our place in life isn’t worthy of the kind of elevation that we dream of. I was under the impression that I lacked the necessary materials which hindered many of my moves and it took a multitude of self inflicted losses to reprogram my mindset. I don’t need to buy the most expensive camera or the most hi-tech technology to be a dope writer, blogger, or most importantly a great person. All that I need right now is a heart full of fire and hands filled with the grains of consistency. Continue reading
