oh, hell yes.

this is why i fuck w/ chris from SBPH.

he couldn’t be more correct. he also managed to illustrate his point without being a jerk. i love him. i know he’s probably not even reading this post, but i had to share that.


i think i’ve managed to justify my subscription to premium table channels. thanks to bill, i’m officially hooked on weeds. watching season 3 after not having seen more than snippets of the prior 2 seasons is kind of odd. but i freaking love this show.

i’m tired of this shit.

myopia is a disease. it can be a blessing and simultaneously a curse, if you will. i don’t mean what my eyes can do (i’m a prime candidate for corrective eye surgery, actually). i’m talking about worldview perspective, or the lack thereof. i’m still here with mine. i’m not sure there are too many other ways to say it. i believe that love must fuel change. when i change myself, it is out of love — i cast away old things. i cast away negativity. i cast away damaging things to improve myself. to me, change outside of ourselves should be fueled by the same feelings of love. there is no other way. what could be greater than love?

shine on!

dope girl fresh has been featured on the ultraviolet underground blog.

altered thought’s silly ass is back at it. this time, he wants you to learn the basics of having relations.

laeti├žia has learned the glory of bragging, a valuable lesson learned from mama gena.

falsabaiana’s kids won the GOLD in their ballroom competition. (girl, gimme a link to read if there is one) she’s also a recent birthday girl! yaaaaaaaaay!

this is my time to celebrate ppl i know/ love (especially myself! lol) & the wonderful things they do/ create, no matter how big or small.

prayers for you.

lost one
found one
so that you might love/ fight/ see/ be

i couldn’t have said it better.

this post is a reflection of what runs through my mind almost constantly when i’m riding public transit during hours that kids are out, or when i enter the gallery to make a purchase or avoid inclement weather outdoors. i feel like a traitor sometimes. i try not to be elitist. i try not to think poorly of poor ppl. but, dammit, these knucklehead kids & the parents who are raising them half-assed if at all . . . what do i do when i, as an HR professional (until further notice), meet these same folks at a job fair and can’t even entertain the idea of trying to recruit them when i know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they’re unemployable?

i’m not saying every one of these buck-wild-in-the-wrong-way kids is gonna grow up to be a total fuckwad.
i’m saying plenty of them are — one is too many, really — and i just don’t wanna be bothered.


it’s enough to make me glad as shit to be a brainiac snob. i know that there’s a lot under all this. i know. i know that there’s dysfunction at play long before any of these little ones even exit the birth canal. but dammit, sometimes i don’t care. i want peace & quiet. i don’t wanna have to sit next to your smelly, cheese-curl-eating-at-seven-thirty-in-the-morning ass. i don’t fucking care if you know all the words to some dipset song. i don’t need to hear if you think j. holiday is sexy as shit — do you even know wtf that means? and pull your fucking pants up. stop with the imitations of what you think languages that aren’t english sound like.
