Je t' non plus

Kevin put me on to Serge Gainsbourg.

Serge was so over the top...told Whitney he wanted to pop on live television (albeit a bit inebriated)...jane birkin to bridget bardot...famously recorded himself making love to a very famous married actress...took a foray into Reggae that ended with him making enemies of Bob Marley...all the while being one of the least aesthetically pleasing "macks" of all time! :)

I drew a pic of Serge in '06. Recently I was visiting some of my fave blogs and ran across, an illustrative tribute to the late, great Gainsbourg curated by Jonathan Edwards. I sent the pic to Jonathan and he most graciously posted my pic along with a short blurb. I was happy to see the blue ink Serge among the other artist submissions, proud even...

On Monday I found an email from Mr. Edwards regarding the pic I submitted...the pic was published in a Brazillian Magazine!

Life is funny...sometimes when you question things, answers present themselves. Lately, I have been questioning my know, the age old question, "Why am I here?" I am an artist, however I work a "day" job in finance. My job is pretty nice and I like the people I work with. My manager is cool and I have little to no problems in my day-to-day operations. So, what's the problem...? The problem is as follows:
I want to do the thing that I was put on this planet to do. Create. It is very simple for me...however with a mortgage and the economy in it's present state, a 2nd grader in private school and a bun in the oven...things are not that simple. As I am typing this, the head of HR comes to my office requesting something work related. I casually turn around to answer her question and realize the ultimate reason for this post...I gotta get the fuck outta here before I turn into one of "them". After explaining the reason for the delay, she responds in her annoyingly always pleasant voice and smiles. I know she can see through me, but I have better things to do, right? Right! So now with HR off my jock I turn to matters more important...
I WILL create!

Marijuana Reform Act of 1977 = Good to know!!!

"The kicker in this is the apparently almost unknown fact that possession of 25 grams, or seven-eighths of an not a crime in New York State and has not been since the passage of the Marijuana Reform Act of 1977, or 32 years ago."

Mark Jacobson wrote a great article for all the dodi-smokers in the new issue of New York Magazine. I love the pics too!!! (So much so that i threw a couple favs up..peace Horacio Salinas)

Ramadan Muhbarak!!!

This is the time of year in which muslims are fasting and praying! It is a time for reflection and contemplation about a person's relationship with God. It is also a time to help those less fortunate. Please take time out of your day to reflect and give thanks for all the blessings in our lives!!!

Being locked up is no picnic, to be sure, and people in prison have to learn to do without the small comforts of life on the outside. But, thanks to books and movies about prison life, it’s pretty well-known that inmates have an endless capacity for invention. The empty peanut butter jar or used Popsicle stick that anyone else would throw away becomes a valuable tool in prison. Most of these items are considered contraband and would be confiscated if found, but that doesn’t stop inmates from recycling and repurposing the materials at hand to create some truly astonishing items.

Viva Los Treps!!! - The 50 Best Nike Dunks Of All Time

Since it was unleashed into the sneaker world in 1985 for college basketball teams, the Nike Dunk had quickly and firmly established itself as one of the quintessential silhouettes in the sneaker business. Since then it had been the go-to shoe for sneakerheads of all walks and ages, and also one of the most popular canvases for customization and collaboration.

With so many releases and models and colorways out, there is always much dispute about the best Dunk. Since everyone has a favorite and this is probably one of the most controversial topics sneakerheads will ever encounter, Complex had decided to step in and put together a comprehensive list of what they deem as “The 50 Best Nike Dunks Of All Time”. Some we spotted on the list include a collaborative pair with Comme des Garcons and Beautiful Losers. Too many wonderful and cool kicks to name here, we will leave you to peruse the article for yourself. Whether you concur or beg to differ, there is no doubt this is one of the best lists every compiled.

"Hey young world, the world is yours...!"
-Slick Rick

Whassuper!??!?! Life is finally at a speed that allows me to blog! But isn't life trully exciting...really just fuckin awesome...?!?!!!! I mean things haven't changed THAT much but things have changed SO much... I know you're like, "what has he been smokin?" (some great kush, but that's not the point). My last post was a thank you to Brother Barack. His presidency has changed the course of American History. But it has not been without it's pro'lems...RECESSION, bitches! So along with great power, comes great resposibility and now Barack has the responsibiltiy of bringing America back to it's prominence (dominance...?). And I don't know about you but I think he really can do it. I'm not on his ballsack, thinking he is the best thing since sliced bread, but I will tell you that I believe what he says and I think he really wants things in our society to change for the better. Will things change...only time will tell. But for some reason things just seem a whole helluva lot more hopeful!

I'm goin back to live my dream-life, until the next time...
