An event to remember 06.09

From Celebs To Old And New Friends

Last night I went out to a place called "The Cat Club" and saw "The Jane Carrey Band preform (Jim Carrey's Daughter). She and her band were pretty good. I really didn't know what to expcet when I got there. On top of that I was chilling with Randy Jackson (American Idol and America's Best Dance Crew) of all people and he's mad cool dog hahaha. After that I headed to a spot called Moscow (where Bounce Rock used to be) . I wasn't really feeling the vibe there beacuse it was an all ages hipster scence. I never felt so out of place. The funniest thing about going there was that I ran into a few ladies that I haven't seen in years. Megan Good she's cool peoples. I haven't seen her since 2005 at White Lotus. We were catching up and then she grabs this girl and said, "Hey you remember her?" The Girl turns around and says, "Hi I'm Mya." I look at her and I'm like you have got to be kidding me right now. I just step back to look at her and I can see the look on her face and the wheels turning in her head as she's trying to figure out where she knows me from. Then Bam it hits her hahaha. It's Lamaya Good (Megan's older sister). Lamaya and I used to date for awhile. I was like, "Wow I haven't seen you since high school!" She was cool and we caught up. I also ran into Amy Bell (Ricky Bell of New Edition and BBD's wife). I haven't seen her in 11 years. I'm glad that those girls are doing well.
Later that night I said my goodbye's, because I had to bounce to Falcon. My man Ron from Tanabe USA hit me up to come through. While at was at Falcon, I met some really cool cats. Ron and his crew were hilarious. I will be chilling with these cats again very soon. In all I'd say it was a very interesting night out.

This Is How You Sell A Car

NINJA HAULER: 2002 Nissan Xterra SE Super Charged
Reply to:
Date: 2009-01-22, 4:11PM

OK, let me start off by saying this Xterra is only available for purchase by the manliest of men (or women). My friend, if it was possible for a vehicle to sprout chest hair and a five o'clock shadow, this Nissan would look like Tom Selleck. It is just that manly.
It was never intended to drive to the mall so you can pick up that adorable shirt at Abercrombie & Fitch that you had your eye on. It wasn't meant to transport you to yoga class or Linens & Things. No, that's what your Prius is for. If that's the kind of car you're looking for, then just do us all a favor and stop reading right now. I mean it. Just stop.
This car was engineered by 3rd degree ninja super-warriors in the highest mountains of Japan to serve the needs of the man that cheats death on a daily basis. They didn't even consider superfluous nancy boy amenities like navigation systems (real men don't get lost), heated leather seats (a real man doesn't let anything warm his butt), or On Star (real men don't even know what the hell On Star is).
No, this brute comes with the things us testosterone-fueled super action junkies need. It has a 210 HP engine to outrun the cops. It's got special blood/gore resistant upholstery. It even has a first-aid kit in the back. You know what the first aid kit has in it? A pint of whiskey, a stitch-your-own-wound kit and a hunk of leather to bite down on when you're operating on yourself. The Xterra also has an automatic transmission so if you're being chased by Libyan terrorists, you'll still be able to shoot your machine gun out the window and drive at the same time. It's saved my bacon more than once.
It has room for you and the four hotties you picked up on the way to the gym to blast your pecs and hammer your glutes. There's a tow hitch to pull your 50 caliber anti-Taliban, self cooling machine gun. I also just put in a new windshield to replace the one that got shot out by The Man. My price on this bad boy is an incredibly low $6,750, but I'll entertain reasonable offers. And by reasonable, I mean don't walk up and tell me you'll give me $5,000 for it. That's liable to earn you a Burmese-roundhouse-sphincter-kick with a follow up three fingered eye-jab. Would it hurt? Hell yeah. Let's just say you won't be the prettiest guy at the Coldplay concert anymore.
There's only 130,000 miles on this four-wheeled hellcat from Planet Kickass. Trust me, it will outlive you and the offspring that will carry your name. It will live on as a monument to your machismo.
Now, go look in the mirror and tell me what you see. If it's a rugged, no holds barred, super brute he-man macho Chuck Norris stunt double, then contact me. I might be out hang-gliding or BASE jumping or just chilling with my ladies, but I'll get back to you. And when I do, we'll talk about a price over a nice glass of Schmidt while we listen to Johnny Cash.
To sweeten the deal a little, I'm throwing in this pair of MC Hammer pants for the man with rippling quads that can't fit into regular pants. Yeah, you heard me. FREE MC Hammer pants.
Rock on.

it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests

Leather pants

This is an old posting but I laughed my ass off when I first read it back in the day. Please enjoy :)

eBay: DKNY Men's Leather Pants I Unfortunately Own


You are bidding on a mistake.

We all make mistakes. We date the wrong people for too long. We chew gum with our mouths open. We say inappropriate things in front of the wrong people.

And we buy leather pants.

I can explain these pants and why they are in my possession. I bought them many, many years ago under the spell of a woman whom I believed to have taste. She suggested I try them on. I did. She said they looked good. I wanted to have a relationship of sorts with her. I'm stupid and prone to impulsive decisions. I bought the pants.

The relationship, probably for better, never materialized. The girl, whose name I can't even recall, is a distant memory. I think she was short.

Ultimately the pants were placed in the closet where they have remained, unworn, for nearly a decade. I would like to emphasize that: Aside from trying these pants on, they have never, ever been worn. In public or private.

I have not worn these leather pants for the following reasons:

I am not a member of Queen.
I do not like motorcycles.
I am not Rod Stewart.
I am not French.
I do not cruise for transvestites in an expensive sports car.

These were not cheap leather pants. They are Donna Karan leather pants. They're for men. Brave men, I would think. Perhaps tattooed, pierced men. In fact, I'll go so far as to say you either have to be very tough, very gay, or very famous to wear these pants and get away with it.

Again, they're men's pants, but they'd probably look great on the right lady. Ladies can get away with leather pants much more often than men can. It's a sad fact that men who own leather pants will have to come to terms with.

They are size 34x34. I am no longer size 34x34, so even were I to suddenly decide I was a famous gay biker I would not be able to wear these pants. These pants are destined for someone else. For reasons unknown - perhaps to keep my options open, in case I wanted to become a pirate - I shuffled these unworn pants from house to house, closet to closet. Alas, it is now time to part ways so that I may use the extra room for any rhinestone-studded jeans I may purchase in the future.

These pants are in excellent condition. They were never taken on pirate expeditions. They weren't worn onstage. They didn't straddle a Harley, or a guy named Harley. They just hung there, sad and ignored, for a few presidencies.

Someone, somewhere, will look great in these pants. I'm hoping that someone is you, or that you can be suckered into buying them by a girl you're trying to bed.

Please buy these leather pants.

Flutebox and more

I really didn't know what to expect from watching this at first, but this pure talent. Mad props goes out to these cats. Be sure to watch minute 13 and on :)

Monday night out...


Today was a usual day at work. I worked 11 hours and bounced around 9pm. I headed home at then around 10:24 I picked my boy Josh up from the 24hr fitness gym by the Archlight and from there we headed to a bar by his house. We threw back a few drinks and talked about what's going with the both of us(mainly about me hahaha). While we were talking I see a black Range Rover Sport roll up and it's my man Reza. I haven't seen him in a minute. He's been traveling lately and it was his birthday over the weekend. He rolled up with a few other peoples and we all chilled and shared a few laughs. I'd say it was a good night.

From the conversation I had with Josh, I really need to focus on myself and figure what I really want to do with myself. I'll be having dinner with him soon the week of our birthday before I bounce to Vegas(Go big or go home right!?!)

Right now it's Tuesday morning and I'm watching VH1 Soul. If you know me, you know that I only watch VH1 Soul or MTV Jams on T.V. or any recorded show from the DVR.

Virgin: the world's best passenger complaint letter?

Dear Mr Branson
REF: Mumbai to Heathrow 7th December 2008

I love the Virgin brand, I really do which is why I continue to use it despite a series of unfortunate incidents over the last few years. This latest incident takes the biscuit.

Ironically, by the end of the flight I would have gladly paid over a thousand rupees for a single biscuit following the culinary journey of hell I was subjected to at the hands of your corporation.
Look at this Richard. Just look at it: [see image 1, below].

I imagine the same questions are racing through your brilliant mind as were racing through mine on that fateful day. What is this? Why have I been given it? What have I done to deserve this? And, which one is the starter, which one is the desert?

You don’t get to a position like yours Richard with anything less than a generous sprinkling of observational power so I KNOW you will have spotted the tomato next to the two yellow shafts of sponge on the left. Yes, it’s next to the sponge shaft without the green paste. That’s got to be the clue hasn’t it. No sane person would serve a desert with a tomato would they. Well answer me this Richard, what sort of animal would serve a desert with peas in: [see image 2, below].

I know it looks like a baaji but it’s in custard Richard, custard. It must be the pudding. Well you’ll be fascinated to hear that it wasn't custard. It was a sour gel with a clear oil on top. It’s only redeeming feature was that it managed to be so alien to my palette that it took away the taste of the curry emanating from our miscellaneous central cuboid of beige matter. Perhaps the meal on the left might be the desert after all.

Anyway, this is all irrelevant at the moment. I was raised strictly but neatly by my parents and if they knew I had started desert before the main course, a sponge shaft would be the least of my worries. So lets peel back the tin-foil on the main dish and see what’s on offer.

I’ll try and explain how this felt. Imagine being a twelve year old boy Richard. Now imagine it’s Christmas morning and you’re sat their with your final present to open. It’s a big one, and you know what it is. It’s that Goodmans stereo you picked out the catalogue and wrote to Santa about.

Only you open the present and it’s not in there. It’s your hamster Richard. It’s your hamster in the box and it’s not breathing. That’s how I felt when I peeled back the foil and saw this: [see image 3, below].

Now I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking it’s more of that Baaji custard. I admit I thought the same too, but no. It’s mustard Richard. MUSTARD. More mustard than any man could consume in a month. On the left we have a piece of broccoli and some peppers in a brown glue-like oil and on the right the chef had prepared some mashed potato. The potato masher had obviously broken and so it was decided the next best thing would be to pass the potatoes through the digestive tract of a bird.

Once it was regurgitated it was clearly then blended and mixed with a bit of mustard. Everybody likes a bit of mustard Richard.

By now I was actually starting to feel a little hypoglycaemic. I needed a sugar hit. Luckily there was a small cookie provided. It had caught my eye earlier due to it’s baffling presentation: [see image 4, below].

It appears to be in an evidence bag from the scene of a crime. A CRIME AGAINST BLOODY COOKING. Either that or some sort of back-street underground cookie, purchased off a gun-toting maniac high on his own supply of yeast. You certainly wouldn’t want to be caught carrying one of these through customs. Imagine biting into a piece of brass Richard. That would be softer on the teeth than the specimen above.

I was exhausted. All I wanted to do was relax but obviously I had to sit with that mess in front of me for half an hour. I swear the sponge shafts moved at one point.

Once cleared, I decided to relax with a bit of your world-famous onboard entertainment. I switched it on: [see image 5, below].

I apologise for the quality of the photo, it’s just it was incredibly hard to capture Boris Johnson’s face through the flickering white lines running up and down the screen. Perhaps it would be better on another channel: [see image 6, below].

Is that Ray Liotta? A question I found myself asking over and over again throughout the gruelling half-hour I attempted to watch the film like this. After that I switched off. I’d had enough. I was the hungriest I’d been in my adult life and I had a splitting headache from squinting at a crackling screen.

My only option was to simply stare at the seat in front and wait for either food, or sleep. Neither came for an incredibly long time. But when it did it surpassed my wildest expectations: [see image 7, below].

Yes! It’s another crime-scene cookie. Only this time you dunk it in the white stuff.

Richard…. What is that white stuff? It looked like it was going to be yoghurt. It finally dawned on me what it was after staring at it. It was a mixture between the Baaji custard and the Mustard sauce. It reminded me of my first week at university. I had overheard that you could make a drink by mixing vodka and refreshers. I lied to my new friends and told them I’d done it loads of times. When I attempted to make the drink in a big bowl it formed a cheese Richard, a cheese. That cheese looked a lot like your baaji-mustard.

So that was that Richard. I didn’t eat a bloody thing. My only question is: How can you live like this? I can’t imagine what dinner round your house is like, it must be like something out of a nature documentary.
As I said at the start I love your brand, I really do. It’s just a shame such a simple thing could bring it crashing to it’s knees and begging for sustenance.
Yours Sincerely

It looks like KAWS is finally going to make it out to the West Coast for his first solo show in Los Angeles. See the press release below.

“The Brooklyn-based artist will be presenting new painting and sculptural work in his first solo show in Los Angeles. KAWS’ technique acts as a sieve of modern culture, filtering and re-contextualizing the images and information that he comes in contact with daily. His process is all encompassing, embracing popular culture and the visual landscape of the familiar. The work can be thought of as an overarching brand; however it is also immediate and organic. This energetic immediacy can be felt in the selection of works that he is presenting.”

” New large paintings included in the exhibition feature his usual cross-section of familiar cultural icons painted with precise execution. The resulting pieces feature the trademark graphic quality inherent in his work. A large life-size Chum acts as a sentry in the space, watching over the works while also playing with scale and proportion.”

Remember that childrens game called telephone?

Sometimes you shouldn't believe what you hear. It's funny when you tell someone something and when it gets to another party it sounds absurd, because keys words get lost in translation. Just let it slide and don't believe it. Have good day y'all.

Pics from Saturday in the O.C.

Saturday was a full day of chillin' in Orange County. Went whale watching and then hung out in Laguna Beach. After that We all went to The Yard House for Daryl's birthday dinner. The dinner was good and we ran into Mr. G funk himself, Warren G. I gave him the wassup head nod.

lazy ass sea lions
Mine, mine, mine, mine, mine...
sun setting before going to eat

Drunks and Slumdogs

After watching Slumdog Millionaire, we were sitting in the parking lot waiting to get out. We just so happened to look over to our right and we see this guy sleeping on top of his car. He was knocked out hahahaha. We had to get out of the car to take a picture.

notice the cell phone on the ground hahahaha
How can he sleep like that?
Waiting in the long ticket line to leave Archlight
Back to Slumdog. Slumdog Millionaire is such an amazing film. I haven't seen a film like that in years. It deserves to be seen again and again. It really pushes you to never give up and find the one you truly love. I just might see it again this week.

Still Searching...


You never hear a weh the Jr. say
See many girls who look so fine
And still I'm searching even night and day
An can't find a gal who look so lovely
You never hear wey the muffin say
Trod through the valley of the sweat and tears
And still he's searching even night and day
Can't find a gal who look so lovely

Woman I would like to let you know just how this man feel
And express myself so the secret reveal
Gal me love you like how Georgie love cornmeal
I would like the privilege for me and you just fi deal
Well, full dedication I'm taking for real
You and me was meant to be just like a pedal and wheel
You a the treasure everyman want to steal
Excellent qualities with cross over appeal
Take you on a trip through the West Indies
Or maybe me and you can spend some time overseas
Well, smile fi awhile then she bawl yes please
Gwan Jr. Gong go show your expertise
Well, right then and there mi observe wey mi need
She's sweet than the honey that we get from the bees
Right at my finger tips is to touch and to tease
Cause mi de in a di program from mi eye deh a mi knees
Ital stew under nuff gungu peas
She want a real Raggamuffin to hug and to squeeze

Still Searching...

Some girl in the twinkling of an eye
Dem ah ready fi come pull down mi Karl Kani
Oh come on now
Tell me how can I
Love ah one dat really don't deserve me
Natural fi keep and natural preserve me
Me is ah boy could get a whole heep ah girl ya heard me
Many are called but only few deemed worthy
Body have ta physically strong and sturdy
Spiritually balanced fi clean and purge me
Mentally advanced fi always urge me
Read couple books and challenge the clergy
Read a couple psalms up inna the morning early


Could you be so kind
Then show me a sign
I've been searching and it's so hard to find
Decent values with a decent wine
Decent jubee running it down the line
Maybe it's my mind
Maybe I'm blind
Maybe it's the way that I've been spending my time
I'm still searching for a fine peace of mind (piece of mine)
Decent jubee running it down the line

CHORUS (Yami Bolo)

A little child has grown
And he's got love on his mind
But what he'll never know
A virtuous woman is hard to find

CHORUS (Stephen Marley)

And dat's when she said
She feels the pain
And she'll never fall
In love again


So if you is a gyal with whole heep of value
What a valuable nice and decent gyal you
When I get you I'll be glad I got you
Then stand firmly inna your life like statue
Seen some old tings seen some young tings
Seen some little silly go and come tings
Seen some one night just for fun tings
What a indecent piece ah some ting

What I've Learned in Traffic School

Dealing with Road Rage

If You Are In A Road Rage Situation
  • Avoid eye contact. In this situation, eye contact is perceived as a challenge.
  • Avoid stopping. Stopping is an invitation for conflict.
  • Position your vehicle as far away as you can from the aggressive driver. Change lanes and slow down.
  • If you exit, locate a highly populated area. Do not exit your vehicle, it provides you with protection and a way to exit the scene if your vehicle is assaulted.
  • In extreme situations, if you are having trouble removing yourself from the aggressor, drive to a location where you will have witnesses. The presence of other people could defuse the situation and provide you with assistance if needed. Ideally, find a location where law enforcement officials are typically present such as a police station, court house, inspection station or hospital emergency room.
  • While locating a safe, populated location, know your location and dial 911. Describe your situation and request assistance. Do not engage or confront the other driver. Ensure you have an exit route until police arrive.
  • Do not drive directly home or to work.

Don't Ask for Trouble

While you are driving be courteous and conscious of your driving behavior. Avoid the following invitations for road rage:

  • Tailgating
  • Cutting other drivers off
  • Changing lanes without signaling
  • Frequently changing lanes by weaving back and forth
  • Making a turn from the wrong lane
  • Traveling in the left lane at a slow speed
  • Driving behind or toward other cars with your headlights on "high beam" at night
  • Blasting your horn
  • Slowing down in front of others right after you pass them
  • Reacting too slowly after the red light turns green

Rest Areas

Rest Areas If you need rest or a break from driving on an interstate highway, avoid pulling off the road at an unfamiliar location. Rest areas are in place to encourage motorists to use a safe location off the roadway to take a break and return more alert to the highway.

Rest areas are open, convenient and accessible to all motorists, regardless of age, disability or language. Good lighting and security features allow comfortable use 24 hours a day.

The rest area system provides public stopping opportunities where they are most needed, usually between large towns and at the entrance to major metropolitan areas.

Rest areas provide telephones, maps and public information. Information generally includes roadway conditions, tourist and recreational opportunities, motorist-related commercial services, public service bulletins, missing children information and information about the local history, culture and regional environment.

Aren't rest areas homosexual hangouts. They forgot to add that. LOL

Obama Day

Today is a important moment in the history of America. We have gone beyond looking and judging someone of the color of their skin. Even though racism is still there fueled by ignorance, today showed that we all can stand together and celebrate change.

Now it's time to celebrate this special day. It's on!!!!!!!!

Saturday, January 17, 2009

With that being said below...

I noticed today that I go through a trend of cutting my hair all off when I get stressed out. I haven't cut my hair in a year and a half. Basically it means that it's time to start fresh and be different (Basically I consider this a cleansing...).
Awhile back(2004) my friend Scott Kinsey gave me this sticker to cheer me up. I keep it on my tablet at work as a reminder to be happy and thankful for what I have.


You never now how much you love someone until they are gone. I got a phone call today while I was at work and it was my uncle whom I love very much. This man has taught and helped guided me to what I am today. My father was never in the picture during while I was growing. Sure you can pay child support but that doesn't mean you're raising your child. I always listen to what he has to say and try my best to live by it. I may not take everything in from him because it takes me awhile for things to sink in and sometimes I have to find out things the HARD way. That's life for you right there. He told me that he almost lost his life and hearing that put me in a state of shock and I never felt so afraid. He means so much to me that if he had gone, I really don't know what I would have done. I'm still feeling shaken up by it all. I glad that he's back in my life. I'm not ready for him to leave me...

Your Purpose

My friend gave me a great quote today

"The core of your life is your purpose. Everything in your life, from your diet to your career, must be aligned with your purpose if you are to act with coherence and integrity in the world. If you know your purpose, your deepest desire, then the secret of success is to discipline your life so that you support your deepest purpose and minimize distractions and detours."

"In any given moment, a man’s growth is optimized if he leans just beyond his edge, his capacity, his fear. He should not be too lazy, happily stagnating in the zone of security and comfort. Nor should he push far beyond his edge, stressing himself unnecessarily, unable to metabolize his experience. He should lean just slightly beyond the edge of fear and discomfort. Constantly. In everything he does."

Sweetback is one of the greatest bands around and they are also Sade's band. I have always been a huge fan of Sade and Sweetback. When Sweetback put out this album(Stage 2) I was blown away by it. The sweet and beautiful sounds of Aya singing on this track really hits home. Sorry to get all soft on you guys, but sometimes a guy needs to be soft.

I Love De La Soul! Bitties In The BK Lounge

If you know me you would know that I'm a De La Fanatic. I am by far De La Soul's biggest fan. I had the pleasure to see them rock the mic twice and I enjoyed every moment. The first time was when I was broke and in college. I used my last $12 to buy BlackStar's new album. The thing was that if you bought the album, you get to get in free when you brought the album with you to the album release party. Me being broke as hell that sounded like a deal of a lifetime. After class I headed down there by myself and no else wanted to go with me. I was feeling the vibe of Talib and The Mighty "Mos Def." I was there for a good 2 hours and I was getting tired. As soon as I thought about leaving Common came out and I was like, "WHUT!?!" Then after a few songs, Talib said, "You thought we came alone?" Then BAM! DeLa Soul comes out on stage. I was so excited and I wish I had someone with me to share what I was feeling. That had to be one of the best things that happened to me in fall of '98. Then a 1 years ago, Scion threw a free show that De La Soul was doing. I was so ready to go and then my job needed me to stay longer. I was talking to Gladys about what had happen and that I may not make it. She was a bit disappointed , but then my man Jeremy was like, "Fuck that, you should go and have a good time. No one else is here late." I took his advice and I have to say that it was a great experience especially to share it with Gladys. She knew how much of a De La fan I was. Thank you for the memories.

So today I was Listening to "Bitties In The BK Lounge" and it reminded me of being back in Jr. high school at the lunch benches and reciting the lyrics.

Part One:
Yo man let me make some Cpt. Krunch
man alright
Yo man we have any milk?
Yeah, what time is it?
I don't know, what day is it?
Don't know, well I'll tell you.
Well it was a Wednesday
me and Boss Hog was kinda hungry
like two eggs, and a slop beef slice of lettuce
and a glass of milk and some cookies.
Spotted in the mist was a BK logo
what we said - well what do you know
this chick thought I was trying to play fly
cause I had a pair of blue jeans on.
Young girl, won't you take my order?
she said, "Yeah, but right now I'm kinda busy...
can't you see I'm trying to put this band aid on my finger?"
Lingering, I could tell
she's a B-K mademoiselle
Ripped uniform and bottom bell
and some Jelly stuff on her sleeve
Look to this cause I had no name tag on my collar
could be pissed cause she's clocking 2.45 an hour
And then Boss Hog hollar
"Girl you better make this quick!"
She said, "I ain't your girl and I ain't your chick!"
I had an idea and lickity split
took my hat off and that was it
Dread locks fallen all over me and then I said
"Yeah now we'll see!"
And o' with quick velocity honey was mesmerized
"Ain't you that guy?"
"Aint you that GIRL!"
"De La Soul, right?"
"No Tracy Chapman!"
"Why don't you come over to the counter; and write me out an
Ha ha ha, I had to laugh
She was quick with the Bic just to get that autograph
But me and Hogg just laughed, and laughed
"What's the name of that song you sing?"
"Living in a fast car," I said
Forget about the order I made
I'll go get a slice of pizza instead.
Chorus: repeat 2X
Bitties in the BK lounge, All they do is beg and they scrounge
Bitties in the BK lounge (2x)
Part Two:
F - female
P2 - Posdonus
F - Excuse me, would you take my order I have to go
Shashawna's got a real job, dag don't you know!
P2 - Oh yeah, Now I recognize
The real real bitty with the fake fake eyes
Yo, can I interest you in some burgers and fries?
F - Yes you can, but you can keep your lies
cause you know you can't diss me

but your pissing me off
I know where you live and I know that your soft
You're as booty as they come [booty?]
and you dress like a geek
my shoes cost more than you make in two weeks
P2 - Look, you don't have to play fly in here
I can tell your fly by the weave that you wear!
But you must be aware that a fly can be swatted by a BK tray
By the way yo, here's yours
F - I know your just sweating me to kill the noise
of your polyester pants and thier o' so high waters
Look at what you do all day but take orders
You bow tie wearing, clocking and staring
I know your just upset because you cant get the rat/wrap
I think you Chubby for my man is living slack
P2 - Yeah, I know your man, the biggest punk in school
selling devil rock to the fiends and the fools!
With one hand that punk I could snap- the kid is so skinny...
F - But we be livin fat
P2 - Speaking of fat, would you like a diet soda?
Cause less fat on you would spare us all the odor
Better yet pour it down the pants and let the acid kill
the smell that should have been left to Masingel!
Let me make you a deal, take the soda free and jet
I got to much family to heed your threats
F - Are you a family man? [Word booty!]
Well I shouldn't be surprized
your sister's flipping burgers and your momma's frying fries
P2 - Don't even try that shit!
F - Oh damn look! [What?]
F - Here comes one more
It's your father he just finished mooping the floor
Now give them a hand, its the BK clan
So you can't talk garbage about who I am
P2 - well, arn't we living foul
Speaking of foul how bout some chicken for the cow?
Ops I meant you sorry for the mix up
but your stomachs always big from the sexual slip ups!
F - I could buy you and sell you for pennies, young man!
{You'd better!}
I think theres something you should understand
I try to be nice and help the poor make money
And since I know you need it, I'll go elsewhere dummy!
Now B-K workers is too damn rude
I think I'll go get me some Chinese food

Hit 12k

I hit 12k last week after owning my car for 5 months. All includes city driving, Cars and Coffee drives, Canyon runs, motor4toys caravan and canyon run, 2 full track days, and Vegas for SEMA.

mammoth was AWESOME!!!

I went up to Mammoth on Friday, but got there late. We were trying hit up the bar for last call, but work kept me from doing that. Anyways Sabrina and I headed out and got there around 2:30am and checked into a high class spot called Motel 6. Very nice spot and I highly recommend it (hahaha j/k). The next morning we went up to Canyon Lodge and meet a pretty cool guy named Miguel who was here with his wife and we also found out that he lives not to far from Sabrina and I. We rode up with him and then parted ways when we got off chair 18. Sabs and I hit chair 9 several times which had some fresh powder runs in the trees. After riding for a few hours it was bar time and I had a nice Long Island to quench my thirst. The best part of the day was hitting the backside of mammoth. It's so dope back there. Sabrina and I have this friendly competition thanks to my man Jeremy. She's faster than me and I always try to catch up. The only thing I have over her is that I straight kill it on boarder cross and leave her ass in the dust.

After a long day of riding we then hit the hot tub. It was about 17 degrees outside and the hot tube was mad lovely. We were just kicking back drinking and chatting it up to some cats that were staying at the condo where the hot tub was. It was time to bounce to get something to eat and I was feeling pretty lovely after the drink I made myself. We ate at a spot called Angels and it wasn't too bad. I had another drink and then another. We finished dinner and headed out to the village to start the mother lovin' party. We walked into Lakanuki had a few more drinks and waited for the DJ to set up. We met these 2 girls at the bar that were pretty cool but mad young. One had a 1 year old kid back home and the other had some trout talking her ear off on her right. These girls were pretty funny, they kept calling me afro for the rest of the night. The DJ finally hooked everything up and the "dance machine" came out with a quickness. I was cold wrecking shop. At the end of the night I saved Sabrina from a BIG lesbian and also from the awful pita pit.

Sunday was even better, the skies were blue and hardly any wind. We rode the backside and boarder cross all day. I was pooped after 2 solid days of riding. It was time to head back home. Oh the way back we stopped in Bishop to gas up and eat. We stopped at this market/gas station called Giggles. Sabrina ordered a sandwich and I couldn't believe how big this six inch sandwich was. We ended up splitting it and ate in the car. For the people that know me, they know that I'm a little bitch when it comes to spicy or hot foods. As I'm eating the sandwich, I look at Sabrina and said, "Why is this SO SPICY!!?!! Is there spicy mustard in here?" She just looks at me told me no. Now my mouth is burning up and I kept eating. I couldn't take anymore and I open the sandwich to see what the fuck was so spicy. I couldn't believe this girl didn't tell me that there were a shit load of pepper chines in it. I look at her and I'm like, WTF!!!! She just busted out in tears because it was too damn funny to her. Oh to make matters worst as I'm eating this big ass sandwich in the car. A guy walks by the front of the car and was staring at me for the longest time as I'm trying to stuff this big ass sandwich in mouth. Seriously, who in the hell looks at another man eat trying to eat a big ass sandwich that can't really fit in the mouth...
Anyways in all it was a dope trip, got drunk, danced, and hit the pow wow. I'm looking forward to going back up in next week with the Covina kids.

Sabrina and I goofin' off. (for some reason she calls me CPK.. I forget why)

Buttonwillow GT-R Track Day

I would like to thank everyone for coming out. It was really the best time I've had on the track. My first time at Buttonwillow with John(NeoSeven on NAGTROC) in early October was fun, but it was nothing like this. I would like to give a big shout out to Darin for really putting this all together. It all started with an idea of Darin wanting to do a test day at the track after SEMA. John and I were down, but Darin wouldn't have been able to do certain things on open test day. So we all decided to rent the track for the day. The 3 of us came up with a date and we started to spread the word on multiple forums and blogs(Big shout out to Nagtroc, Sean Morris - 2009gtr, Ian - GTR Center, Kris - GTRblog, and Luxury4play). It wasn't easy to get people signed up at first, but then they started to come in one by one.
I drove into town(Bakersfield) late Sunday night and stayed at the Doubletree. When I pull into the parking lot there were about 9 or 10 (modded and stock) GT-R's all lined up. The next morning (Monday Dec. 29th 2008), it's about 33 degrees outside and we all do a little meet and greet in the parking lot. after meeting everyone that stayed at the hotel, we rallied up the troops and started our caravan to Buttonwillow. Let me tell this, seeing 9-10 Gt-R's driving down the street in a line is absolutely amazing. You either get a big grin on your face or your jaw just drops to the ground.
Pulling into Buttonwillow, we see Sean Morris already there and then later the other GT-R's strolled in. After everyone settled down we got ready for our driver's meeting that James(Axis Wheels)and John provided. They went over track rules and procedures so everyone can be safe and most importantly have fun. After the meeting was over we did some lead and follow runs ran by James and John so people will see the lines and get acquainted with the track. After a few runs, Godzilla was unleashed at Buttonwillow. We had people running their car in sub 2 minute times. The fastest time put out on the track was John's car @ 1:57.7 then followed by James @ 1:58.

Thank you Darin(Kunani), John(NeoSeven), James(axis007), Peter(peterkl), John(2007C6Z06), Glenn, Greg S., Vic(Tradervic), 700credit, Jon(ZIELSPORTS), MYWIFEBOUGHTIT, Sean Morris, Craig Lieberman, Dilan, Jason, and the whole Buttonwillow staff. We couldn't have done this with you, thank you.
