To Infinity & Beyond

Yeah I'm a few days late with this post, since I went to Disney on Ice this past saturday. It was awesome! Since it was celebrating a 100 years of magic, majority of the disney characters were there. I would continue on but I know that a picture is worth a 1000 words.

Celebrating a 100 years of magic,

to infinity and beyond

Stick With The Classics

I've been watching a lot of music videos lately and I've been paying close attention to the video as well as the song. Music videos that have that classic feel are my favorite at the moment and I also think that they have to be done well or it's no good at all.

Although it's a spanish song, you can understand what I mean by that classic feel when you watch Aventura's Su Veneno.



When I see masquerade balls I always think of the old royalty with those ballgowns and pretty fly masks to match. You can notice that in OneRepublic's All The Right Moves.


Now I know what you're thinking, why do I see a Biz Markie video here? Well, your answer is that: the only classic feel I get from this vid is when Biz is wearing that wig and playing the piano...it looks classic me. Just watch Biz Markie's Just A Friend.



It's a classic plotline, classic look: black and white...and Fabolous' dope song Money Goes, Honey Stay (When The Money Goes Remix ft/Jay-Z) just happened to fix perfectly with it.



What's more classic than Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, paper boys, shoe shiners, and flapper girls? You know what I'm talking about when you see Chris Brown's Gimme That.





Do what you want; go into the future, stay in the present
or go back to the past.
As for me, I'm going to Stick With The Classics.

We Got SPIRIT, Yes We Do!!

Alright so Wednesday (the day before Thanksgiving) is known as Spirit Day in the Latin Academy community. And to show our school spirit we wear the school colors (black and gold) and take part in Prep Rallies. This year was very interesting to say the least, the day was packed with hyped up mascots, cheerleaders, step squads and all the sports teams and large clubs know to BLA. And as usual the stands we're filled with CRAZY HIGH SCHOOL KIDS.



above you can see some of the things i mentioned above. And like every year after the prep rally we go back to our homeroom and go crazy (to say the least). It's all so much fun!!!




Since we get out early that day we ofter hang out afterward with a group of friends. This year Lizi, Duckie, and I went out to eat and ironically enough our server was someone we "met" this summer (and he smelled good.. LOL) We had some rlly good food too. Then we went to Fanuel Hall and tried to figure out want we were gonna buy each other for Christmas, you would believe what we found. LMFAO I guess you can say we had a good time... but that would be an under statement.





that's all for now,

Happy It's Not A Boy Anniversary

Have you ever got rewarded for getting good grades. I mean sure your parents might give you a few dollars but have you ever got anything from a friend. Well last week Lizi and I got our report cards and we made a bet [gasp] If she got decent grades i would get her a balloon. Little did she know what i had in store for her !!!!


Yes; that's right i went there. She only asked for 1 balloon but I got her 3. balloon #1 said: Congratulations; balloon #2 said: Happy Anniversary and balloon #3 said: It's NOT a Boy! LOL everyone had a good laugh.But some couldn't take a joke and started saying there was a pregnant sophomore sooo we put that balloon away! But other than that we had a good time.
(there was a pic of me being surprised,
but i didn't like it so i told suzana
and now u guys can no longer see it.
aww, disappointment lol.)

well that's all 4 now,

Like My T-Shirt?

So the other day I was reading about the 100 best t-shirts. And yes I looked through all 100 of em and picked out the ones that I think you should see (I'm saving you the trouble of looking & reading about 100 different tees, so you should THANK ME now). I found that original list to basically be correct but there are some that should have been higher ranked..here's my top 15 t-shirts.
MY CHOICE FOR #15 (number 12)
Amazing that a simple design of BBC is still good to wear years after it was first originally released in '05.



MY CHOICE FOR # 14 (number 15 )
Model Lauren Hutton, is a TRUE GENIUS, and the quote that she said in '64 says it all.
MY CHOICE FOR #13 (number 85)
I like the photography here.

MY CHOICE FOR # 12 (number 55 )
Biggie, Biggie, Biggie can't you see, sometimes your t-shirt just hypnotize me. Okay so that sounds like a somewhat cheesy line that those business exec. would have thought of, aha.

MY CHOICE FOR #11 (number 96)
Pharrell can't skate...did you know that?



MY CHOICE FOR # 10 (number 32)
I like this two for two reasons & two reasons only: 1)Michael Jordan & 2)A Tribe Called Quest's Midnight Marauder design all in one :]


MY CHOICE FOR #9 (number 3)
[they say it's a subtle way to tell others to go kill themselves, I must agree with that statement...the shirt says it all]

MY CHOICE FOR #8 (number 48)
I LOVE THE TITLE FOR THIS T-SHIRT: "Destroy Your Enemy" I think that's why I like the t-shirt so much.


MY CHOICE FOR #7 (number 94)
If you can't skeet on somebody's lady, the best way to show disdain for them is to spit in their face (the dude, not their lady). Isn't it nice that they warn you with the shirt before they spit in ya face.

MY CHOICE FOR #6 (number 69)
I wish I could have watched tennis in the 70s just to see this guy flip someone.


MY CHOICE FOR #5 (number 97)
Inspired by those tourist tees that say 'I Love New York', this tee d
oesn't give the same message..this one is more like a big eff-you written on a t-shirt.

MY CHOICE FOR #4 (number 62)
LMAO.


MY CHOICE FOR #3 (number 3)
Funny, even BEFORE Mac vs. PC commercials, Staple knew how much Windows sucked.

MY CHOICE FOR #2 (number 25)
I love mixing random words together like that...it's like those mad lib books only better.

MY CHOICE FOR #1 (number 24) This shirt is pretty dope mainly cause Angelina Jolie is a freakin G here :] (though the one who made the shirt got bits and pieces...like the arms..it made for a great t-shirt)
[some words of advice]
Go Love Your Own shirts like Mad People in New York do,
Say you came to NY to go to AFRICA,
Destroy your enemy & flip them the bird,
Sing a Biggie song or just f**k it & go to Santa's,
Keep bouncin' or go spit at Windows 95

Hip-Hop And You Don't Stop


Let me jus say this first: THANK YOU RICK RUBIN & RUSSELL SIMMONS for finding DEF JAM and keeping it strong 25 years later. They wanted different music, like Russell said "I didn't want no R&B sh*t", they made a new genre and it spread across the nation like nobody's business; established in 1984 & celebrating it 25 years today. Yesterday on VH1, the show Hip-Hop honors honored Def Jam for it's success in the past 25 years, and all it's great artists from the beginning with LL Cool J, Public Enemy and the Beastie Boys to finding new talent like Jay-Z to Kanye to Ludacris and definitely many more. You know without that white boy Rick dropping beats & having Russell on his side to find ridicuolously dope talent, hip-hop would never be what it is today.

I can't seem to find a picture of both the Roots and Eminem when they opened the show with the first performance doing LL Cool J's "Rock the Bells". The energy was clearly there as if LL was killing em with his rhymes as if he was back in the 80's.

Yes, let me just say RIP DJ AM (Travis' shirt reminded me). Anyways, Gym Class Heroes, KRS-ONE and Wale performed Beastie Boys "No Sleep Till Brooklyn" and man was that performance great...I think it was probably because Beastie Boys had some of the greatest beats...that were ever thought of by a rap group of 3 white boys lol.
"It was a clear black night, a clear white moon, Warren G was on the street trying to consume..." Trey Songz and Warren G were the ones who did that old school thing with the "wave your hands in the air" and Trey having to say "Yuuuuuuuup!" at least twice during the performance. With that smooth west coast style, Warren G definitely brought something different to Def Jam and Lyor knew that when he signed him back in the day.

So here's Ludacris representing Def Jam South, he's a pretty good rapper....from the south I mean.

Does this guy above really need an introduction, or do I gotta put on some crazy clock, gold teeth and a hat just to say FLAVA FLAVVVV ! ? Public Enemy's performance was crazyyyyyyyy! Especially with all those black guys all on one stage (aha, just kidding) but ever since Public Enemy was signed onto Def Jam, it has always been seen as something different and that is definitely a good thing.

Look! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Rick Ross & Kid Rock stealing LL's kangol, big gold chain and sweatsuit that he wore back in the 80's ! aha.
Ruff Riders ! You know if you can't hear DMX say it, I was gonna have to be the one to tell you. Now I know what your thinking.....DMX seems impossible to understand with his deep grunting, dog barking self. But it made perfect sense when Tracy Morgan and some other guy got to introduce him. The guy next to him translated into 'DMX lingo' whatever Tracy said and all you heard from him was: "Nah what I mean, ruff ruff." (and he did a X with his arms every time he finished saying something) It would be a hell of a lot funnier if you heard it for yourself, mainly because I can't sound like DMX whatsoever, especially with his deep voice, wtf is up with that? I only know half of what he's saying...and half of it is about dogs and motorcycles right?

The song that Mary J. Blige & Method Man did : CLASSIC. You remember that song, it goes like You're all, I need, to get by..... and the vocals and what not come in (hard to have you listen since it all I can do is type it out for you)

Foxy Brown & Fabolous did it right when they performed "I'll Be" which originally had Foxy and Jay-Z on the track. Foxy & Fab were one of about 6 other artists who were part of the finale. Although I think they should have went last and not Wale who did Kanye's "Touch The Sky" which wasn't that great as Foxy & Fab who definitely had the energy from the crowd.

Tips to have a successful record label:
1) I, I mean YOU "need a beat"
2) you gotta "walk this way"
3) you need to "fight for your right (to partyyy!)"
4) you gotta be Slick like Rick
5) remember to "fight the power"
6) and you need a to have a "G FUNK ERA"
and with that, you are guarenteed success for the first 25 years and you know there's more to come.

Taste Tester

So I know what you're thinking, what is this post about especially if it has the title: Taste Tester. Well of course, it's about being a taste tester. I got to have that experience today. Apparently my sister filled out a survey and became a taste tester for a bottle of soda that was orange. I was very suspicious of it all, especially the special box it was in. I didn't really care, I gotta be a taste tester for a day, I wouldn't say no to that...if only I got paid for it (when I grow up I wanna be a taste tester haha; I'm gonna be successful huh).

As you can see, it was in a small cardboard box with that weird white packaging thing...what are those things even called? Anyways, she said I could try some of it, and it was pretty good. I'll tell you though, I'M AMAZED that the drink IS HEALTHY..it doesn't seem like it's healthy especially if you take a look at the bottle.
The only thing you guys can read off the label is Ingredient Statement & (one ingredient I can show) NATURAL INGREDIENTS lol.The second pic is the paper that came with the bottle...it explained about the new product (that's not even stores) & I must keep the words on that page a secret as well. Hmm, well I don't think it's wrong to show you what it says but I wanna be a bum and just keep that info to myself :]
Yup, you'll see I'm that jerk that will purposely go in public and whip out that new shhh while you gotta wait months to buy it in stores, ahaa.

What ?

So don't violate or you get violated, The hip-hop sound is well agitated. Won't ever waste no time on the played out ego.
If you aren't aware that the lines above were from A Tribe Called Quest, then you need to be schooled in your music, and I will gladly be the one to school you kids.
You don't have to agree with me on this, but I know I'm right when I say : A Tribe Called Quest is true hip-hop. They are from back in the day, yes I'm aware of that but majority of the music made in 1999 and anytime before that is something YOU should listen to. So I was listening to music today and I remembered about A Tribe Called Quest. I don't know how many hits they had, but what I do know is that all the songs they've made are DOPE.
The song that got my attention right away was "What?" When you first listen to it, right away the easy-flowing beat and rhymes catch your attention. Next thing I think you should pay attention to is the lyrics for the song...I don't know if the lyrics would have much importance to you but to me, it just made me THINK...for a while lol.
Here are some lines from the song :
What is a war if it doesn't have a general?
What's channel nine if it doesn't have Arsenio?
What is life if you don't have fun?
What's Ali without Shaheed Muhammad?

What is a Quest if the players ain't willing?
What is a pence if you don't have a shilling?
What's a con artist if he doesn't have brains?
What's America without greed and glamour?
What's an MC if he doesn't have stamina?

(Just so you know, I really liked that "What's Ali without Shaheed Muhammad?" line...it reminds me of that argument in the barbershop about Muhammad Ali's name in the movie Coming to America. Yes, very random I know)
Another song from A Tribe Called Quest that I think you should listen to is "Scenario". That song is just sooo smooth. Here's some lines that I really like :
I could give a damn about a ill subliminal*
Stay away from crime so I ain't no CRIMINAL
I love my young nation, groovy sensation
No time for hibernation, only elation

Causin rambunction*, throughout the sphere
Raise the levels of the boom, inside the ear
*The words with the star are just the words that I love hearing in the song, it makes me want to use the words in a sentence today lol.* Anyways, that is all that I'm going to school you in FOR TODAY. Once you've grasped the idea of A Tribe Called Quest tell me whether you think they are good or not. I always take people's comments/thoughts into consideration.

You gotta be a winner all the time
Can't fall prey to a hip hop crime.
[just wanted to leave some last words from quest]

Today We Said Our Prayers Like Good Little Girls

Okay so we've been in a "sticky" situation lately and thats when i remembered part of the lord's prayer, which was so right for the moment. anyways, i will now lead us in a prayer, if all of you will bow your head we will begin.

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,

the power and the glory,

for ever and ever.

Amen

thank you, peace out

Welcome Back

Okay so we recently started school again and I must say times are changing. It seems like the hallways have been transformed into catwalks, like its one big fashion show. Everyone has designer labels and the "flyest gear" and what not.... like how rlly cares what you wear?? I know I sure as hell don't. I don't even care what I wear, shit I wake up in the morning and throw on whatever i get my hands on to be honest. What happened to the good old days when we went to school to get an education, but that's the least of every one's worries. It kills me when people spend more time picking out they're clothes then they do on homework. And who the hell is buying all this shit anyways. I know for a fact that my mother would rather buy me a new book than some sneakers I'll probably only wear once, and if they're buying it with their own money they have problems because we are only getting paid minimum wage... we do NOT need to be wasting it, it should be going into a savings account for college because scholarships don't pay for everything.

anyways... I'm out

Have You Ever Noticed...

I sound like Seinfeld starting with one of those "Have you ever noticed..?" jokes, but because they're random I think that's why I find em pretty funny. There are some random comedians that do make me lol, and yes I said lol, so sue me, least I don't say jkay out loud like some people. OMG, that was like the other day when I decided to watch comedy central, I heard this hilarious comedian who was 18 I think, and did most of his stuff through songs, aha that dude made my day !
Here's two things from Bo Burnham ; dude's effing hilarious..for a white boy, lol.



Next comedian that comes to mind that I like would be Gabriel Iglesias. First time I heard this guy's stuff, I was dying! especially when he talks about his car...those neighbors of Martin are SOO hispanic!


Now I know this next video is not of a comedian but a comedy show if you would say, from BACK IN THE DAY. That's right ese, I'm talking about ALL THAT. Remember that 90's intro with like 10 different kids but every season was always hilarious, OMG, especially with amanda bynes, kenan and kel...awww I wish I could just watch that show for the rest of the night, but I can't.

"I'm a dude, he's a dude, she's a dude, cause we're all dudes, hey!" Do I have to explain myself more or should I leave some words of advice? "Welcome to good burger, home of the good burger, can I take your order?"


CHRIS ROCK ! Yes, I had to put some of his stuff on this post...mostly because if we do not add a black person to this, we would get in trouble (just kidding). So, here's one part of his Kill The Messenger show.


Hmm, well here's one video of the comedian that I mentioned first, Jerry Seinfeld. Sometimes he's funny, other times; ehh, he's okay. But I really like his stand up though he really has random things to mention, it's pretty funny though.


(another black comedian in case you didn't realize) I really do LOVE Eddie Murphy's RAW comedy show; especially this one part when he talks about Italians, aha sooo trueeee !


Lemme just say one thing before I go :
"Get the f*ck outta hereee!"

90s videos

Yes I'm aware that this is ANOTHER post with videos; but there is nothing much to write about especially if you've been stuck at home sick for a week. I find 90s music videos hilarious cause the clothes and what not...and we all have to admit that we wore crazy colored clothes back then.

All I can say about the Spice Girls and their video is that they TOTALLY scream 90s no doubt.





LL Cool J and the 90s made an interesting and also sexual combination...you can tell by his video Doing It.




Ahh, a biggie hit...classic.




All girl group TLC...man I just love their songs especially No Scrubs. Now I that think about it, you can easily tell this video was done the 90s.



Strumming my pain with his fingers, singing me life with his words, killing me softly with his song killing me softly with his song telling me whole life with his words killing me softly with his song....then the guitar hits and aw man, I just love this Fugees song.



I think that the only reason Ginuwine had Pony released is because that weird background sound, kinda hard to describe but it's somehow catchy at the same time.



Hi, my name is [chika-chika] slim shady. (aha)




THIS IS HOW WE DO IT !




I think I'm going to stop with that video but I do gotta mention other hits in the 90s; I kinda shortened the long list so you can thank me.
California Love-2pac, Nuthin' but a 'g' thing-Dr. Dre, Doo-Wop (that thing)-Lauren Hill, O.P.P-Naughty By Nature, buddy holly-Weezer, black or white-Michael Jackson, im too sexy-Right Said Fred, sabatoge-Beastie Boys, jump around-House of Pain, you make me wanna...-Usher, let's talk about sex- Salt-n-Pepa, C.R.E.A.M.-wu-tang clan, smells like teen spirit-nirvana and blah blah blah there were many more.

Haha, ain't nuthin but a g thing bay-beh .

Throwback Videos

Watching videos from a few years ago always bring back memories and all that jazz. It's also funny to see how the people in the video have changed (got older, blah blah), it is pretty entertaining.

So here is the first video, Kanye West's 2003 hit
All Falls Down.





'who? Weezy Baby or call me young baby, my money 360 you only 180.' -So here's the video for Fireman.


Now this video includes a boy band, and YES, it's VERY early 2000 so to say. I kinda have to admit, B2k's alright. I find watching this video really HILARIOUS because they all look so young. Anyways here's Bump, Bump, Bump featuring P.Diddy (yeah remember when he use to be called that)




You know what I'm talking about when I just say two words : CALIFORNIA LOVE.




Ahh, a new spin on a old classic. You'll see what I mean when you watch Mario's video for Just A Friend.



We all know who Notorious B.I.G. is...and if you don't then you clearly have NEVER heard music at its best. I find it interesting how majority of us only know his hits like Big Poppa, Mo Money Mo Problems, etc.. But you have not heard or seen a really good biggie video like this one. My personal favorite, Sky Is The Limit featuring 112.




Last throwback video you should watch is for a really dope Sean Paul song. Here's I'm Still In Love With You.





The people highest up got the lowest self esteem, the prettiest people do the ugliest things for the road to riches & diamonds rings. -Kayne West; all falls down
Now everybody welcome to the wild wild west, a state's that untouchable like Elliot Ness, the track hits ya eardrum like a slug to ya chest. -Dr.Dre; california love

[Some last words, I promise]
Baby turn around and let me see that sexy body go bump bump bump.

-Why are they telling girls this, wasn't B2k like 10 in the video? lmao.

Lizi in a box

Dude, I really want a jack in a box now lol. Well it's kinda obvious that Lizi was in a box Thursday and Friday for her performance, you can see the pics as prove. And Suzana was the ONLY ONE who came, but it's all good. (and Robert's a bum for not showing up!) My performance was for my workshop that I did for 6 weeks and I worked damn hard on my performance! :] I don't feel like explaining what my performance was about but I will say it was called 'Just Your Normal Tea Party' ...and so I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves.

(the last two pics are of my window pieces; first one: 'chaos catches the eye' & the second one: 'so...these are triangles')

at least someone saw what I've been working hard for
