this is the truth

"We are all cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out." - Ray Bradbury

who doesn't love free?

in today's world, we're all looking to get something without paying for it. everyone loves free stuff! especially music.

if you love, hate or just don't care about coldplay, either way, you can get their new single for free on their website. i wish every group would do this.

(just a little warning before you head over to their site to download it: they're going to send you an email with a link that will only work for 6 hours so you might wanna wait till you head home to do it).

The White Shadow Strikes Again

When, MF Doom and Danger Mouse came out with Dangerdoom, in conjunction with Aqua Teen Hunger Force, I thought it was ingenious. The skits were just too funny.

I recently came across a follow up EP. Every time I listen to this skit I can't help but laugh. Enjoy.

photo booths

who doesn't love to run into a photo booth with a few friends to take pics? damn, if i could, i would have one in my apartment. unfortunately, it would never make it up the stairs so i guess i need to just run around the city to check out these spots.

are you aware?

i have a.d.d. i can't do this stuff.

more platanos

Monday, April 28, 2008

to prove my point that my post was THE BEST:

rain: dude
me: howdy
rain: i can't stop watching this platano con salami video
me: are you freaking serious
rain: yeah. i CANT STOP WATCHING IT!
i like the song.
i like platanos.
i like salami.
i like the girl in the video.
rain: i can't not like this thing.
me: you're a foolio. serious foolio.
rain: foolio?
me: yes. that's you.
rain: i see myself as more of a coolio.
me: you're that too. i'm glad i posted a video that you think is so cool. i won!
rain: u won what?
me: my post is the best post ever. i won.
rain: GET THE HELL OUTTA HERE. i think that news reporter thing i posted was fucking great.
me: NOPE. my video is the best. YESSSSSSS.
rain: u are smoking crack.
me: nope. the fact that you can't stop watching it means that it is the best.
rain: i watched that reporter one way more than this one.
me: PUH-lease.
rain: oh my god.
me: you know my video is the shit.
rain: just cuz im giving u some props look at you get inflated...check the blog.
me: you fucking bastard. don't hate because my post is the shit.
rain: hahahahaha. i wasnt hating. u were the one that goes off saying "I WIN!!!"
me: HAHAHA how are you gonna comment that my video sucks. fucking hater.
me: you are a hater.
rain: i am lol-ing in real life.

a song for DTM

this song is for you. just because i give you a little love on your last post. don't think you have won the battle. because you clearly haven't. 1 decent post does not win a war which you clearly want.

this is for all of my latinos out there

and for anyone who likes to eat plantains and salami.

false settin

quite possibly the worse/best drawings of hands ever seen.


this totally grosses me out so i have to share it with the world. i'm kinda mad my friend sent it to me.

i need this in my life

in my mind, i have plans for this paper mache tree. i imagine it in my living room and me sitting under it all year round. rain, sun, snow or sleet, i would thoroughly enjoy this tree if it were in my life.

unfortunately, because of city living, this will never ever fit in my apartment.

if you can snatch it up, i'll come visit!

a must see

the chatter around ny is definitely about the takashi murakami exhibit at the brooklyn museum. on a daily basis, not only does someone feel the need to remind me of HOW much i need to see the exhibit but they also offer to go with me if no one else is going.

i get the point. and i will go. i just need to make some time to get my butt over to brooklyn. it's just so damn far!!

me: big boy bike....?
rain: hahahahah...oh man its so funny. I’m trying to find a nice pic of my bike online..and the site i find a good pic is.."" hahahaha…what a coincidence. (the bike)
me: you got a BIKE--not like a motorcycle. that's what i thought you were trying to get at.
rain: yeah fuck that. u aint catching me on no motorcycle.
me: what about a vespa?
rain: i am too clumsy. vespa maybe..but those are fucking dangerous as hell too.
me: let's say your girl had a vespa--would you get in the back and ride along with her?
rain: hell yeah
me: HAHA for real?
rain: as long as she drives...that’s kinda cool. i can't lie..that sounds kind of awesome.
me: (my bf’s) friend's gf has one and they went to the soccer game yesterday on it. and all of (my bf’s) friends were like--i would never get on the back of a vespa with my girl!
rain: i mean…vespas are kinda dorky to begin u gotta take the dork factor up even more….i would so ride on the back...that is fucking pimp…and I’d be smacking that bitches ass the whole time. that would be so awesome.
me: HAHAHAH SHUT UP. i just busted out laughing.
rain: hahhahaha..nah but foreal tho...that’s pretty awesome if you think about it. what girl wouldn’t want that.
me: i thought it was cool. (my bf’s) friends are very machismo
rain: machismo to me is getting on the back...then if somebody says something...beat their ass. Hahaaahahaha now that would be even more awesome.

Never Forget

It is a saying that is as old as time. It goes beyond any connection. Beyond races, creeds, and religions. It is a pact that should never be broken and always uttered when even the slightest shred of doubt emerges.

I actually saw someone wearing this shirt last week. Check it out here.

Ahhh!!! Zombies!!!

For the most part I'm a scaredy cat. I usually don't like scary movies. But I don't really consider zombie movies scary. They're more suspenseful than anything else.

Anyways, I walked into the kitchen in my office and this was posted on the wall. I couldn't help but bust out laughing. I was in the kitchen by myself. Obviously, everyone just started looking at me like I was insane.

whiskey tango

pics from their myspace

this place is the shit. for those that don't know. 7 elevens, quikcheks, wawas, supermarkets, and bodegas dont sell alcohol in NJ. you have to go to something called a "liquor store". it's awesome and un-awesome at the same time. this place might look like a liquor store, but theres a bar in that bitch. and the drinks are cheap as fuck. 3 henny's and 2 jamesons.....15 fucking bucks..and they take credit card.  to add to the charm....this place is located in a strip mall off of the disgusting industrial sprawl of rt. 1 NJ....thank you jesus for finding me my fav. bar of the year. 

harold and the purple crayon

i had to watch this in college. it's still so entertaining to me!

So What You Wanna Do?

"That girl is totally feeling you. You need to take her home with you."

Thats what one of my boy's girlfriends told me. I was trashed. The chick, who was a friend of a friend, was trashed. So obviously I only had one thing on my mind.

I tried to make it look like I was being sociable and I asked if anyone else at the party wanted to head to a spot for some food, hoping everyone would say no, so it would be just me and her. One of my boys, not realizing what everyone else had figured out already, decided to tag along.

We hopped in a cab and headed to the spot. We got there ate and drank a bit more. I asked the chick if she wanted to get outta there. She said yah. So I paid the bill and bounced on my boy. We walked out of the spot and this is how our convo went.

Me : So what you wanna do now?
Her : I don't know.

Me : You wanna head home now or you want to chill a bit more?
Her : I don't know.

Me : You feel like hittin up another spot?
Her : I don't know.

Now at this point I'm gettin a little annoyed. So I just asked her straight up.

Me : You want to go to my place?
Her : I don't know.

Now I was completely confused. But, I still wanted it to go down, so I figured I might as well just make it happen. So I told her lets hop in a cab and start headin towards my place until she figures out what she wants to do. We get to my place and I ask her,

Me : You want to come up?
Her : I don't know.

So obviously I just start walking to my place and she follows me all the way into my apt. So, I figure its a wrap. She down.

Me : So what you wanna do now?
Her : I don't know.

At this point we're both sitting on my couch and I'm completely befuddled at this point. This girl has followed me around all night and I finally get her to my place and she still don't know what she want to do. So I just said fuck it and I went in for a kiss. She pulled away.

Now I'm not annoyed. I'm indifferent. hahahah. I figured she not going anywhere and I'm not getting anywhere, so I put a pillow under her head a blanket over her and I went to my bed and went to sleep.

I woke up the next morning and she was gone. If you asked me what the hell that was all about, I'd have to say...

I don't know. haha

no talking till tuesday...

me: you're the worst. don't talk to me till i see you on tuesday.
rain: there's no way you will be able to resist talking to me til tuesday.
(a few minutes later)
me: FUCK--before we start this, look at this. you first posted that muppet thing.
rain: dude you're so funny. i knew you couldn't resist...
oh my god. this is bullshit. that's insane. maybe someone saw our blog.
me: shrug. ok for real now--no talking till tuesday.
rain: no for real--don't do that. i need someone to talk to tomorrow at work.
me: HAHAHA. fine fine fine. but i'm going to post this convo on the blog.
rain: man that's funny. our convos turn into blog material. even funnier because i'm telling my friend to type everything for me and he is the one typing right now.
me: you have a secretary! cooooool.
rain: hahaha. a very good looking one. us secretaries prefer the term executive stenographical synthesizer. he didn't say that.
me: i thought they were really called admin assistants.
rain: umm...i just do stock.

She is Dumb Slick

I was chillin at this party with a friend and he was talkin to this chick and I thought she was pretty fly so I asked for an intro. Being the awesome wing man that he is he intro'd me and slid away.

So I'm there kicking my game and the chick seemed pretty receptive. We had a nice conversation for a good part of the evening and I thought she was pretty chill so I asked for her number. And this is what she said.

"I'm sorry I can't give you my number. I have a boyfriend. But you can have my myspace. We could get a group together and have some drinks."

I was more than disappointed, but I didn't want to be mean and tell her no thanks. So I said sure. She asks for my number so she can text me her myspace. Just in case you didn't catch that, she took my number so she could TEXT me her myspace.

Now I was pretty trashed, but even I knew that if you text someone that person now has your number.

Now I've told this story on numerous occasions, and everyone has been split right down the middle on this. Either, 1 - She is incredibly dumb for thinking that texting me her myspace meant she wasn't giving me her number or, 2 - She was extremely slick by giving me her number on the low and she definitely wanted me to call.

I think the most interesting reaction I've had to this story was recently. They said, I want to say that she was dumb. At least if she was dumb, she wouldn't be a scum bag.

this is for my little jelo...

"it's ON like DONKEY KONG!"

(i heard the expression this weekend during "rock of love" and i am officially resurrecting the awesomeness that IS this saying.)

a thought.

i hate pets. especially ones that do "cute things". pets suck. cute sucks. cute pets suck.
