Boo Bitches!...Happy Halloween, I got a stomach ache already.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!............oh hold up, ohhhhhh that's his real face.

I'm going to be jumping around randomly on topics today so sorry if the subject suddenly changes drastically from line to line, keep up. But first lil kiddies and ghouls, since it's that day of stealin pillow cases of candy from 11 year olds I figured I would drop a lil list of the top ten best horror flicks. They are in no particular order, but I def have to start off with a all time favorite and classic, and the one that made me shit my pants more than once when I was 9.


-Rosemary's Baby

-The Shining


-Silence of the Lambs

-The Exocist

-Last House on the Left




Also I wanna say to all the teenagers and young adults, you still trick or treatin, then I'll smack the taste out ya mouth, shit is for the kids, either chill pass out candy, stay inside and watch some movies tec, or take yo ass to a halloween party and get on a sexy nurse or whatever. And if any of you cocksnots try toi egg, t.p., ring my doorbell, I will be waiting with my buddy Louiville to crack some skulls like Principal Vernon. Anyways moving on, I wanna send a shout out to my homie Rey from, Uncle Rey or Rey The Hussein to most, for his latest blog post(even though I wanted to stab a dinner fork in his eye) talkin about the movie 300, Marvel comics Wolverine (by the way...Wolverine >>>>>>>__________), and those shitty "funny" movies; Epic Movie and Date Movie. Def check his site out, if your into Fall Out Boy, Kanye West, anything 80's, Scrubs (top notch comedy), and random Emo Moments of Clarity. I might wanna shake him violently but dude has the best random blogs *jealous face* lmao. Also big ups to ya for letting me know about Pearls Before Swine, shit is hilarious bro. Matter of fact any of you that have'nt checked out any of my links below, esp the personal blog sites, you, Lost(no boring ass ABC show).

And I know myself, and mostly everyone from Nah Right (click the link down below on my links), and a few DX peeps have had a chance to listen to some reral good music from "Cha' boy!", some music that is real "Gangster", and I have to tell ya, it's a return to top form for the big homie. All the people that know what I'm talkin about I say this, Fallin' > rest of the tracks on the album, oh you mad?

A quick review on Quentin Tarintino's Death Proof (1/2 of the Grindhouse double feature): shit was dope.
...the cars, the car chases, the crazy and sometimes long Tarintino-esque dialogue, and the funky 60's and 70's rock/soul music soundtrack(It's got The Coasters and Joe Tex on it!...) that was played throughout the movie was awesome. Def great, and I heard through reviewers and people who have seen the movie that this is the better of the two Grindhouse movies, but I still gotta see Planet Terror cause I'm a Zombie finatic. But def check it out.

Well thats it for now...check back tommorow or Friday for a few more posts, dont worry I have a slight second wind, or it just might be those hot fries and that kit kat bar I had at lunch.

Two posts in one day?! way!...go 'head test him for steroids.

Yep back again...

Figured I'd drop a lil bit more of my writing. Ahhhhhh school ties...

I Think Love 4Got About Me?
Im not sure but I think Love 4Got about me?

Love was the absent-minded mother that left me

at the super market,

It was the uncaring teacher that left me

out at recess and didnt come looking 4 me,

It was the busy parent that left me sitting

on the school stairs and didnt pick me up,

I left it 4 messages but It didnt call me back,

It was the unfocused student that left me

at home when I was due that day,

It the stupid kid left me in the couch and

didnt even lift the cushions to find me,

It left me stranded alone with no hope that

It would remember me.

Maybe I need to be that string wrapped

around Its finger to remind Love that it

4Got about me.

Scars of Disappointment
Disappointing yourself is like a stab in the arm,
But disappointing someone else is like a stab in the heart.
It hurts, it's sharp and deep, it's eternal pain,
Something you can never fully recover from.
It's piercing through your flesh quickly, Without warning,
but once it's there it is there for eternity.

Hey Kids guess what day it is?!...It's Emo Monday!

Dont worry I wont turn into Rey The Hussein...

Naw for real I'm just tired and spaced out from this "great" day we call Munday. Also I got some influence and inspiration from some random sources (and decided to post some emo lovey dovey writing that I did recently for my girl. Enjoy, laugh at it, give me props, tell me to listen to some Fall Out Boy like Rey (I am listening to some Brand New, which is a slight emo but more of a regular rock band...Dont worry I'll toughen up with some G Rap, Bumpy Knuckles, and M.O.P. later on.) Here ya go:

Dream Season (slight love letter/poem)-

I’m just a man with some simple words and truths…along my travels in this life…
I’ve seen “angels” and “pretty faces”, but never someone that is my own to have, the person to save me from the aforementioned, to appreciate me in a way that those before you could never realize or comprehend, to change my life so I can change their’s, my girl, my own personal guardian angel, my Queen. I have been blind, let astray, led through swamps of darkness, trumpets never played, introductions never made, and throughout these lead-in’s I’ve been led to feel that these were “special ones”, “angels” or whatsoever they need be called but deep down in my heart I knew something was missing, the fact was is that I just wasn’t sure what. All of the truths about these d’evil girls were found out through crappy feelings and hard realizations, most throughout times where I was still fully figuring out who I was as my whole self. Some of them were hiding behind masquerade masks, trying to lead me away from the light, from where I need and wanted to be. I was lonely and lost, and had no one else to guide me, so I gave into these marauders of false hopes and emotions. Since finding you I have become a better person, you have helped me realize true feelings, not just ones you want to have and try to so hard to grasp something that is not there and not blinded by superficial feelings like in high school. When you came into my life, you snuck up on me, at a time when I wasn’t looking for Life like that, but there you were. You knew all along about your feelings, I wish I knew like you knew then, to be ready like you already were, but soon enough I came catching up to join you so we can be together as we are now. So I hope this Love Letter reaches you and makes you understand how much you make me happy, how you pulled me out of the hole that was dug, thank you for letting “Love REMEMBER me”, And thank you forgiving me for not connecting to you, for not seeing what you saw at first. Everyday it gets better than the last, and everyday I am thankful that you have come into my life, and hopeful that you will be in my life for years to come. And so I paint this picture with my Pen to illustrate what you mean to me, and I feel that these wild, vivid, crazy, regular, irregular, different words that I have wrote, that you have inspired, that I give to you, show you all of what is inside of my heart and soul. There are so many things that make you perfect for me and make me love you more each day. I love how we can have our own opinions and even bicker about things but just as easily get over it and not take it to heart. I love how you are open minded to everything esp. to my crazy musical tastes. I love how you start to like some of my hip hop songs; meanwhile I start to like some country songs that you don’t know the names of. I absolutely am glad and love the fact that you can be yourself and make goofy faces and just act like a weird, crazy, nerdy, dorky person just as much as I can. I love that were honest with one another and if we do have a problem or something we need to yap/bitch/talk about we at least try to do that. And I know with all of these things that I love and cherish, I know that we will last, and we will be together. So I hope you accept this Love Letter/Poem that I wrote to you with my deepest emotions, deepest feelings, and deepest thoughts. I hope this makes you understand. I hope this makes you feel good about what we have. I hope you can be with me forever. I truly and fully Love You.


Through (more of a poem)-

Through the regular days, through the hard days,
Through the days where you don’t wanna talk to anybody,
Through the drama of people either family or friends,
Through the crazy and hazy dreams,
Through the 6:30 morning alarm clock wake ups,
Through the stomach aches and feet hurting,
Through the missteps and the mistakes,
Through the quarrels and the unevenness,
Through the interruptions and talking over one another that we do,
Through the waiting you had to do for me, for us to get to this point,
Through it all…there’s you.
I dreamed of your face last nite, and how you make me feel,
Then today, I woke up,
Got in my car, and started driving to work like I’ve done a hundred other times,
But something happened,
Sitting there in the relaxed routine of a early morning car ride,
I paused in my habits and looked over at the empty passenger seat,
It made me sad for a slight moment, but then I realized something that made happy,
Now there are always different descriptions and interpretations of it,
But I think for that brief, surreal, and defining moment,
In all of its simple weird awkwardness I realized that I do,
In my own feelings and my own definition of it,
I love you.


And that's just 2 of the many poems I have written over the yearsn, these two are very straight forward and are serious cause I am serious about the way I feel about ym girl ya know, real talk no b.s.

If you werent into that than its all good, but I have plenty more where that came from and I prob will do this once a week maybe to kind of put out some of my work for you guys to read.

Also dont worry nothing is wrong with me and my girl we are great and dont worry I have no intentions to doing a Owen Wilson, I'm a happy mofo trust me. Enuff with the seriousness I'll holla at you cocksnots later.
