Slappin this song reminds me of the time that I will have with Kevin Leung. We’re boutta be smashin through the streets of LA runnin thangs! yaknnaaimsayin?!

It’s Saturday where I’m at. Philippines.. is looking oh so wonderful. Anywho, I just got back from my trip to Bohol. and let me fill you in about it. Alright so we got on this boat, and it was big. First time I got on a ferry. Which surprises me because there are ferry boats in SF, yeah? My cousin had the hook ups with the sea men on deck, so I got to sit where all the cool kids sit. yay me !

When we got to Bohol I was hella juiced to go on a Zip line or go rappling, unfortunately we did not make it happen. However my family and I managed to see Bohol’s “chocolate hills” at Sagbayen Peak, it was nice. I also got to hold a Tarsiere (this really cute and small monkey with big eyes.) I met some distant relatives. I played on a really pretty beach called Panglao beach. It had white sand and blue water. I had some bomb mango shakes. I got to go inside a cave filled with bats flying over head, and there was a swimming pool inside.

My weirdest moment:

I was checking out this huge python, then out of no where a TV crew pushes everyone out the way. I wasn’t trippin, but while I was staring at how ridiculous these people were and how “V.I.P” and “cool” they were. A man dressed as lady gaga starts hanging off the ceiling pane, mocking the lyrics to Lady Gaga’s Alejandro song.
LOL wow.

and.. the end result..
I have to deal with all these scabs. I itch to much cause of these bugs biting me. zeam.

Lil Wayne The Genius

Biography
The charismatic Southern rapper Lil Wayne began his industry ascendance as one of the Hot Boys, a short-lived all-star group on Cash Money Records. After establishing himself as a successful solo artist, he grew to become a critical favorite, known for his confident boasts, entertainting underground mixtapes, and prolific output. Born Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., on September 27, 1982, in New Orleans, LA, Lil Wayne grew up in the Hollygrove neighborhood of New Orleans’ 17th Ward. There, he became acquainted with the Cash Money Records collective, which he eventually joined as a teenager. Get It How U Live! (1997), a Hot Boys album also featuring Juvenile, B.G., and Turk, marked Lil Wayne‘s album debut; at age 18, he was the youngest group member.A second Hot Boys album, 1999’s Guerrilla Warfare, arrived several months before Lil Wayne‘s solo debut, Tha Block Is Hot. The solo record went double platinum, peaking at number three on Billboard’s album chart while spawning a Top Ten hit with the title track. Lil Wayne‘s second album, Lights Out (2000), failed to match the success of its predecessor, nor did his third album 500 Degreez in 2002. By this point, Lil Wayne was the only remaining Hot Boy on the Cash Money label — all other members had defected — and the future didn’t seem promising for him or his label. Consequently, Lil Wayne purportedly scrapped work on his fourth album and instead released the recordings as an underground mixtape, Da Drought (2003), his first of many to follow.

2004’s Tha Carter signaled a change in direction for Lil Wayne. The album itself wasn’t a significant departure from Lil Wayne‘s past work — after all, it was filled with tracks produced by Cash Money’s in-house producer, Mannie Fresh, some of which could well have been left on the cutting room floor — yet it showcased a more measured and mature performance by the rapper, who seemed newly emboldened and sported a new, dreadlocked look on the album’s cover. Tha Carter spawned Lil Wayne‘s biggest hit in years, “Go DJ,” while the album itself was a Top Five hit. 2004 also marked the beginning of Lil Wayne‘s string of guest appearances on other artists’ songs, starting with Destiny’s Child‘s “Soldier.”

A pair of popular 2005 mixtapes, Dedication (with DJ Drama) and Suffix (DJ Khaled), further established Lil Wayne as a dexterous freestyle rapper. By the end of the year, Lil Wayne‘s reputation had significantly grown, and Tha Carter, Vol. 2 debuted at number two on Billboard’s album chart upon its December release. In the wake of Tha Carter, Vol. 2, which was a critical favorite as well as a strong seller, Lil Wayne continued to bolster his resume and increase his fan base via the mixtape circuit. Of the myriad mixtapes bearing his name from 2006 onward, Dedication, Vol. 2 (DJ Drama, 2006) is a standout; like Tha Carter, Vol. 2, it was a critical favorite, making an appearance on many critics’ end-of-year lists. The Carter, Vol. 2, Pt. 2: Like Father, Like Son (DJ Khaled, 2006) was notable, too, as some of its material was revived for 2006’s Like Father, Like Son, a major-label collaboration with Baby, aka Birdman, that spawned the hit “Stuntin’ Like My Daddy.” Lil Wayne also collaborated regularly with Dipset member Juelz Santana during this period. After stolen tracks from his next official album appeared on the Internet, the download-only EP The Leak appeared in 2007. A year later, that same EP appeared as a bonus disc on a limited-edition release of Tha Carter III, which sold over one million copies during its first week of release. Fueled by singles like “A Milli” and “Lollipop,” the album sold an additional million copies during the following month, making it one of the most popular albums of 2008.

Fashion dialogue

Today, Kelvin and I filmed a show about fashion. The guest was a surprise and you’ll have to wait for us to upload it to see, but we basically had the idea to interview “every day” people about fashion.

For those of you who don’t know, Kelvin and I are really into fashion. We spend a lot of our time looking at new collections, editorials, models, designers, and everything else. We thought it would be interesting to get the opinions of people who aren’t as into the fashion world because let’s face it–fashion people seem to be in their own bubbles a lot of the time. A lot of the clothes that look “insane” look just fine or ordinary to us. A lot of looks that seem outrageous are just fabulous and genius to us. What does it look like to everyone else? We don’t know, and we’re curious.

I am super excited about this new project and to have more dialogue about fashion with those who don’t consider themselves really into clothes. Perhaps we’ll be able to see the influence the fashion world does–or does not–have in everyone’s lives.

OH BALLS!!!!!!

So great consultation with the doctor the other day and I can’t believe that I will have the face that I want in a matter of 2 months. The doctor was so easy to talk to, knew what he was doing, and so much experience that I was sooo sure and mighty and happy that I found him. I’m soo excited and soooooo ready but I ‘ll have to get my wisdom teeth pulled first next Wednesday. And with the Dr’s recommendation I can pursue with the surgery I have to wait six weeks and wait till my teeth heal since it’s the area where I will be worked on. I can’t believe that it’s really happening and OMG the cost is about a new car and I feel extremely guilty :O ouchhhhhhh

video games vs. real life

Bang! You’ve been shot in the arm, but it doesn’t hurt. Bang! You’ve been shot in the head, but you’re not really dead. You stare at your corpse. You wait to respawn. You say into your headset, “Ouch.”

Videogames offer us a release for our violent urges we rarely get in day-to- day life. They let us vent by keeping the killing on the screen, and therefore out of society. Sure, some people are still uncomfortable with in-game gore, but where else can you safely, and legally, snipe innocent passers-by with a long range weapon, set off grenades that send bodies flying or simply attack your friends with an enormous sword?

That’s one of the things that makes videogames so addictive – our ability, our right even, to inflict pain. Whether videogames egg on our propensity for destruction, or just reveal our innate bloodlust, we keep coming back.

The confusing thing about in-game violence, though, is it isn’t real. No one is actually being kicked, wounded, marred, or annihilated. Bullets pass through avatars, not people. Yet it satisfies our urges. We are sated by virtual blood.

But real-world violence isn’t just about body counts, it’s about pain. Whether you’re dropping an atomic bomb or pinching your little brother’s arm, it’s inevitable. Videogame characters, on the other hand, can’t feel pain. A fireball to the chest, even if there’s a real player behind that chest, will never hurt. So, what does it mean to inflict pain on someone who can’t feel?

Some people say it’s a good thing. Society keeps its acceptable violence release valve, and no one gets hurt. Where else can we turn for a (constructive) pain fix? Hunting kills animals; karate breaks bones. But, in games, all carnage is temporary, reversible with a few clicks of a button labeled “erase” or “reset.”

Other people say destruction without suffering can cause harm. It encourages players to engorge their trigger-happy alter-egos, to learn about violence without ever learning about its consequences. A child, for example, picks up a videogame where shooting a hooker isn’t a moral dilemma, it’s a wise economic move. He doesn’t have to watch her die, slowly, grotesquely. He’s escaped both her pain and his own. Players lose their grasp of real-life danger when they become accustomed to in-game immortality.
