wow u guys get to hear my inflections here lol
this rant i did is completely unedited and raw
listen or download
Wow God is really doing some amazing things right now..
go to the 23 minute mark and peep his rhyme to see what i'm talking about
i'm amazed at what God is doing with these stars and celebrities today
Cassidy i'm proud of u bro! your rhyme was 100% unexpected! and 100% GREAT!!!!!
i seriously sat through this whole interview and had no idea he was gnna spit that.. and i'm pretty sure they didn't know either
i love these artists who are taking a stand today!
and to all u wack illuminati puppet artists out there.. enjoy whatever fleeting financial gain and debauchery u have today because ngga you are playing for the wrong team
another semi-unimportant entry.. but i want to speak again on why i generally hate movies
well.. one reason is because of the language.. just because you CAN say something doesn't mean you should
one thing that has always irked me is how they try to take u on an emotional rollercoaster.. to me this tends to stretch an idea too thin or water it down
instead of just being funny u want to be funny and have action and romance and drama
if i watch a movie it doesn't have to have explosions and slapstick and sex scenes and all this crap.. look, just WRITE A GOOD SCRIPT
what i'm saying is.. i feel like they try too hard in a lot of ways.. they get away from what makes a movie good.. writing and acting
stop trying to hit people with bells and whistles.. just write and produce a good film
this brings me to the last thing i want to say
movies force risque imagery and behavior on you
for example: i watched a movie a few years ago because the premise sparked my interest.. well why did i have to watch some guy tongue a girl down? think about it.. if i was hanging out with a couple- i'd like them to have the decency to not slob eachother down right in my face.. but for some reason it happens in movies and no one bats an eye or sees it as disrespectful... WELL I DO.. I DONT WANT TO SEE THAT.. and another thing.. in this same movie- why did i have to see a guy's naked rear end?
think about it.. i signed up to watch a movie with an entertaining storyline.. i never signed up to see softcore porn.. and i for damn sure never signed up to see a man's anal cavity!!!
i don't get why they have to show people having sex to show that two people care about one another.. its like.. like if you just farted- i'll take your word for it.. i don't have to have to smell it to believe you..
and u know.. this brings me to ANOTHER point
one thing i don't get about acting in general is why do actors just do everything?
LOL they trip me out sometimes.. they do EVERYTHING in the name of "acting"
acting is the only profession where someone can say "act like a girl" and a guy says "ok! ahyuck!"
a director can literally say anything and an actor will do it!!!
"take your clothes off"
"kiss that person even though you're married"
"dance around and act like a monkey"
they say its all a part of the craft.. ngga you're fooling yourself
there needs to be some limit where you say: "aye man, this sh*t wasn't in the job description."
if you have read this far..
don't ask me why i dislike movies 99.9% of the time
cuz i could go on, but i won't
so just DONT ASK ME WHY I DONT LIKE MOVIES
EVERYONE ACTS SO SURPRISED THAT I DONT
YOU WONT CONVINCE ME THAT I NEED TO GO TO A MOVIE WITH YOU BECAUSE I ALREADY KNOW THEY WILL PROBABLY TAKE GOD'S NAME IN VAIN AND SHOW ANAL CAVITIES!!!!
I DONT LIKE MOVIES!!!
this entry is not important.. just 2 things i wanted to say
1. i came up with a nickname for the wii u... "wiik u"
wiik = weak
u = underwhelming
2. i saw a commercial on tv for a cd from an artist named phillip phillips
i don't care if that's his real name or his stage name.. that ish is ridiculous
he should be taken out to an abandoned alleyway and beaten
this is definitely not the most important thing in the world however i want to talk about how i feel about my looks
i've been having a hard time over the past say.. 2 years dealing with the way i look
i feel like my looks have been changing (making me look more like a man than a boy) and i've gotten fatter
i'm not sure which one has been affecting my looks more.. the weight issue or the maturing issue.. because honestly it could just be one and not both.. but my theory is that its some measure of both
now.. lately i've been becoming more comfortable with the way i look
one thing i want to quickly make very clear
a big part of how you see yourself has to do with the people you're around
if people don't appreciate you on some level then that will likely have an effect on your self-image
SO.. with that said.. one of the most important parts of liking who you are is GETTING AWAY FROM PEOPLE WHO BELITTLE YOU
recently i met a girl and only 2 or 3 days into us talking we had a conversation that went like this:
her: "how tall are you?"
her: "are you sure you're not any taller than that?"
her: "you seemed taller than that, all my brothers are tall"
me: okkkaaaaayyy..... sooo.. is my height a problem?
her: *says something to try to save face*
don't bother.. the damage is done.. guess what b*tch? i'm not one of your brothers
sometimes i play things like this off but generally they tend to irk me.. i get tired of people making me feel inadequate.. if you don't like me then don't talk to me.. don't chill with me.. don't invite me places.. live your life.. don't bring me in just to belittle me
i'm not saying AGREE with everything i do i'm saying make a decision now to be a blessing or a burden in my life.. if you don't like me then fine! but you're not going to just make me feel less-than every day
and the thing is i could've pointed to things on her i didn't like but i never did that! i never compared her to someone else or hinted that something she can't change 'just wasn't good enough'
smh.. i don't get why people are so wack sometimes
look.. let me get off this subject.. my point is.. one of the main things you will have to do in order to have a decent self-image is to get away from these negative people who don't allow you to be you
IF THEY DONT APPRECIATE YOU FOR YOU THEN GET AWAY FROM THEM
honestly the comments about my height made any interest i had in her go to zero FAST.. like you have no idea how little tolerance i have for that kind of garbage.. i will not only get away from you but i'll also completely resent you
if you want me to be something i'm not then you want someone else.. so GO AWAY
the other thing that has helped me to come to grips with my looks is i changed my hair.. i dyed it blonde and then i got it cut into a sort of mohawk so the sides are black and the middle is now reddish after a few weeks
i got a few negative comments but i started to get some positive ones.. honestly either way i don't care
what i'm saying is.. try to get used to doing things for YOURSELF sometimes.. if someone says "i don't like your shoes" then say (both to them and to yourself) "well its a good thing they're not your feet then huh?"
remember, anything you do is for you.. if people don't like it then they either have to get used to it or go away.. don't allow people to control you by their comments and disapprovals.. by staying true to yourself and staying in your own driver's seat- you can feel good about your decisions.. just take ownership of what you are and what you do
this one is more personal than the previous two
i am beginning to like my "new" body
i've been skinny for years.. but for the past about 2 yrs or so i've thickened up
with my height and thickness i almost have a stocky build.. i'm actually starting to kinda like this about myself.. being somewhat stocky is actually kinda cool to me.. its a look i can work around and get used to and even accentuate
i had to get away from people dissing me tho to see the positive sides of looking different than i did in the past
overall.. i want to say this
a big part of me LOVES it when people diss me for something i can't change because it is an instant indicator that they are not worth my time
when i say that^ i am 100,000% serious.
its like dealing with racist people.. if i know ur racist then that makes my life easier because i know not to go around you or try to be nice to you or anything because you will always repay me with contempt.. its just better to know upfront when people reject you.. so when girls say things like "you're BLANK, but all my ex boyfriends were BLANK" ..then i know not to waste my time on her.. i can go on about my business and she can go on about hers- trying to recreate the past somehow lol.. trying to reincarnate her ex-boyfriend in some unsuspecting simp
in a lot of ways i'm thankful when people express their negative opinions of me.. i've learned to believe them the first time
and it makes my life, relationships, and my personal circle of friends much more enjoyable and stable.. and like i said earlier.. it helps me to have and maintain a positive self image
overall i guess you could say the main message here is.. prune your garden
because the fruits of said garden will indeed affect you
wow.. this is refreshing to see.. this is the kid from 2 and a half men saying he basically is living for Christ and he isn't really feeling 2 and a half men anymore because such a negative lifestyle is portrayed
i'm really happy to see things like this..
i know most people aren't perfect in their walk but its important to honor God and try to at least improve! (myself included)
FTG = Foar Teh Gaimers
ok what's up.. in this entry i want to talk about the new wii u
first off.. i've looked around and asked around about the name
why did they decide to name it the wii u instead of the wii 2?
what does the "U" stand for?
i found it odd that no one seemed to know why they named it wii u and no one seemed to care.. everyone seemed to readily accept it.. to me that is weird
think about it... wii r.. wii k.. wii f
like why does no one care what it stands for?
anyway.. some guy said maybe it stands for universal because the controller does a lot of different things and has multiple functions.. i'll stick with that answer.. it sates me
when it comes to the system i am very disappointed in it
i feel like this is one of the worst launches of a system ever
no 3d mario, no metroid, no zelda, no smash bros, no kirby, no starfox.. not even a dang f-zero!
not only that but it already has year old games from other systems and their "killer app" zombi-u (awesome name.. sarcasm) is getting terrible scores
on top of this.. the graphics so far are not any better than games out on 360 and ps3
ok now.. think about it.. if there is no great or amazing or long awaited exclusive nintendo title on the system.. no amazing 3rd party wii u exclusive.. and graphics aren't even better than 360 or ps3.. WHY WOULD A PERSON BUY A WII U ?
and another thing:
not only does wii u not have a large library, but also while 360 and ps3 game prices are coming down more and more, wii u games are all currently at full price
why buy a wii u? think about it.. game-wise u can get 2 or 3 great ps3 games or ONE wii u game.. AND DONT EVEN GET ME STARTED ON THE BUNDLED GAMES THAT ARE OUT AND CONTINUE COMING OUT!!!!
killzone bundle is 3 games in one at a discounted price
god of war bundle is 5 games in one at a discounted price
infamous bundle is 2 games in one at a discounted price
the list goes on.. what i'm saying is.. wii u is just not worth buying right now unless you're a straight up nintendo die-hard with money to blow for basically no reason other than to "have the new nintendo"
there is just no incentive to buy a wii u at all
i am just very disappointed in this system.. there is NOTHING THERE!!!
even in the area of memory..
how is this system even next gen and it comes with LITERALLY 10 times less memory than the ps3 i bought nearly FOUR YEARS AGO!?
IT MAKES NO SENSE!!!
someone from nintendo said "we support external hard drives.. the prices on them are coming down"
ok if memory prices are coming down then why didn't you include it in the system?
why do i have to buy your system AND an external hard drive?
and how do the customers know which externals are compatible with the wii u?
and will whole games be able to be saved to the external? and how will using an external affect load times?
the wii u is just so underwhelming.. 8gigs hard drive and 32gigs hard drive!?
my ps3 i bought in january 2009 came with 80.. so nintendo is just being ridiculous
i saw an 8gig thumb drive in the paper the other day for $6.. what i'm saying is.. nintendo isn't even trying
i don't get why they even have an "e-shop" when their system has no memory for it.. they are just not providing their customers with value
AND ANOTHER THING!!!!!!
i read online that it doesn't play dvds or blu-rays
my ps3 plays both.. right out of the box
and another thing.. the wii u controller doesn't have analog or force sensitive buttons or triggers
its not a next gen system, its essentially a huge ds that doubles as a tv remote.. i'm sorry wii u is garbage.. seriously it is GARBAGE
there is no value.. people who like having "the new nintendo" will buy it and whatever but honestly anything outside of that.. i mean.. there is no reason to buy this thing
it is just a complete disgrace imo and i'm not dissing nintendo.. i'm just saying they need to step it up
give gamers a value
stop shafting the day-oners
we all know in a year and a half there will be a 300gig wii u for sale for like $250
nintendo is just not up to par anymore
we dealt with the low-definition wii and all of its shovelware last gen
this gen i think money will talk.. and it'll tell nintendo to go hard, or go home.
i saw a crime show where a guy had everything.. he was rich and had a wife and daughter
he began to lose his money though and so he decided to burn his house down and kill his wife and daughter and himself rather than go broke
this really made me think
i kinda actually feel thankful for my failures in life after hearing about this guy
because i realize failures can prepare you for something that may be hard in the future.. u build strength, integrity, and character when you "lose" in life or go through something difficult
this guy was probably so used to "winning" that when he foresaw a loss, he completely broke down when it wasn't even that serious!
so i must say.. after seeing this episode, i am actually thankful that i have been humbled many times in life
because it keeps me from being some kind of crazy ego-maniac who can't take "no" for an answer
its a blessing to have developed some sort of adaptability and humility over time
cuz who knows
that person who u think "has it all" might just be an insecure, selfish, coward like the guy i saw on that show
so all in all..
moral character ftw! ('4 the win' for u non internet nerds)
since this year i have 3 songs.. i'm adding the runner ups this time from previous years also
wired all wrong's "15 minutes"
soulja boy's "swag-flu"
georgia anne muldrow's "roses"
charles hamilton's "cosmic library zone"
melvin burch's "don't act like i didn't tell you"
charles hamilton's "breakaway"
kenny loggins "i'm free (heaven helps the man)"
dave matthews band "when the world ends"
dave matthews band "pay for what you get"
backstory for my 3 songs of the year 2012:
the kenny loggins song has amazing lyrics.. its almost like a theme song to life more than a mere song.. but still the song elements are all there.. this song has so many great elements to it.. when i listen to this song it makes me think kenny loggins could've been on a much higher level if he made more material like this.. this song kinda has everything at once.. its rock-ish, 80s synth-ish, groove-ish.. just has a lot of elements to it and each element works perfectly.. it reminds me of michael jackson.. listen to this and listen to something like beat it.. think about how each aspect works together to create a great and meaningful pop song with depth..
this song really made me understand the talent of kenny loggins.. listen to how he kinda blends genres in here.. i feel like he didn't do enough of this type of music.. he shines on these rhythmic pop songs.. all those ballads and folk songs seem like a waste compared to his 80s pop songs imo.. but this song remains incredible either way.. btw.. i'm really only talking about the music video version.. the album version is a little long for my taste.. so don't hesitate to peep this on youtube
dmb's "when the world ends" is a song i like for the same reason i like soulja boy's "swag-flu" they both take something which is exceedingly negative or something that scares people and they make it funny or they make it seem cool.. both songs successfully take the sting out of fear whether it be warranted or not..
dmb has a certain swag on this song also.. they are relaxed and cool and confident.. the reggae influence is definitely a nice touch on this one as well.. just a great groove.. great feel.. and i like that it puts a different spin on a major source of worry
dmb's "pay for what you get" is very loose.. a very free flowing kinda song that is almost vague.. but you know what he is saying even though the lyrics are kinda like.. almost fragmented or almost like the pain was too much to where he didn't want to go into detail..
it somewhat reminds me of nirvana.. not in the sound but just in the fact that the sound and inflections point to the meaning just as much or more than the lyrics do.. the sound and inflections say it all.. i definitely relate to this song.. "everybody asks me how she's doing" yet they are no longer together.. that coldness.. that emptiness.. that understanding that no one else understands.. dmb just nailed it here.. great job
i encourage anyone who has read this far to check out my three 2012 songs of the year
let me know what you think also!
