You’re Not invited to dinner

For those of you that may not know, I’m a half breed. I’m only using the term “Half Breed” becasue black people who are proud to be dark as night time typically throw that joke at me. Honestly, I don’t care becasue I know I got a better grade of hair than them. What makes my hair so incredible (besides the afro) is that I’m mixed with filipino. My mother is from overseas from a group of islands that gets hit every now and then with typhoons and all those other crazy sea storms.

Now in my opinion, I think Asian food is the best. Matter of fact, I think any food that isn’t made here in the United States is better. Growing up, I’ve had to eat whatever my mom cooks and about 5 minutes ago I just got done eating some noodles she made. They were delicious by the way. The food my mom makes is wonderful and people like my dad’s side of the family drool over it, especially her eggrolls. Now my mom isn’t a chef, she’s just a woman from the Philippines who makes food she grew up around. Being that it’s considered “exotic” for the lack of a better term, people automatically assume that she is a great cook.

It’s always after I reveal to someone that I’m mixed with Filipino, I get the, “Can she cook?” question. Of course I reply with a HELL YEAH and whoever I’m speaking to tells me they’re coming to my house. As usual here I am trying to figure out why people ALWAYS got to say that. YES my mother makes great asian food but that certainly does not mean you’re invited to my house for dinner. You better stay home and eat you pork chops drenched in BBQ sauce or some of that unseasoned fried chicken that (Joe) pulled out the oven. While y’all do that, I’m gonna eat this boiled fish, with rice and noodles.

i have a theory.

I just thought of some shit. Now this is going to sound stupid in the beginning but please allow my high mind to reach its destination as we go through a bunch of bull shit.

First off I was thinking about the habit of smoking and the reason why we do it. If you haven’t smoked a cigarette, it’s not the pleasant of feelings. When you first start out you get light headed (at least it was for me) and then you feel like you want to puke or something. If you were stubborn like me and kept fiddling around with those damn things you would have become used to it and can take in the full effects of what a nicotine fix is like.

So anyways, people that smoke are doing it becasue of what they are receiving from the smoke which is nicotine. All good right? Well heres where my mind took a turn for the worse and began thinking about why we have lungs and maybe when we were created we were such a primate species that our design meant we needed lungs. Well going past that, lets look at how our body intakes stuff. For food and water we ingest it through our mouths and whatever the product contains will then travel through our system. (This is why they tell us to eat healthy, pay attention!)

Other ways stuff gets inside of our feeble bodies is through our lungs. Practically everything we breathe affects our body. That’s why we need to stop polluting the air. Now as I take a toke from the bong guess what I’m receiving? THC. Now where I’m going with this is going to sound strange but what my thoughts behind this were, “What if the reason weed is a medicine that can be smoked and only a primate species would think that.” What I’m saying is, weed is supposed to be here to aid us and is the most natural component here on earth. The plant can do a lot, what’s the point of trying to recreate what can already successfully be done. With the idea of how life originated and the common sense that could possibly be given, I Mr. Afro declare that WEED SHOULD BE LEGAL.

Okay guys, I’m just going to get straight to it.

Castro is dead.

Now this post isn’t about his death, it’s about the year as a whole and how many people that have died. Now of course we all know that people die every day, but isn’t it crazy that all of these well known human beings died all in the same year? These humans aren’t just some average joe humans, these are people that have made an impact on us in someway or another. I mean hell, Prince died. How shocking is THAT!

Trying to wrap my head around this makes my brain hurt.

I really wonder about what goes on in the world sometimes but I tell myself to not question it becasue I get more dumber by the minute. My mind goes further than it should, discovering new ideas but also asking more questions. This time around its scaring me. Going back to my point, people are dropping left and right around us.

Let us all share positivity.

As I watch the white dots slowly stack up and fall back down on the front of my mod, I question how safe it really is to vape… Okay not really, the juices they sell at the shop I go to are too good to pass up. I remember not to long ago my buddy Eric told me that even though he’s nearly winged himself off of those damn cancer sticks, he still wants to vape.

Personally I have nothing against what he’s saying other than the fact that he must want to continue vaping just to produce smoke like the rest of the millennials with a metal cylinder between their lips. For me, vaping was an escape from the toxic chemicals cigarettes offered. Since I quit, I can skateboard longer, rap without becoming winded, and feel a hella whole lot better. Not to mention that I haven’t had hayfever from allergies in a while.

The only reason why this topic has become a post on my site is becasue I saw a picture of a dude on his iPhone with a vape in his mouth. The image alone made me want to make fun of the hipster like picture being that the dude had on some boat shoes. When I look at vaping as a whole, it’s become a weird subculture that has taken over the minds of young people who want to be cool and wear clothes that are too tight and too big. I literally thought vaping was just for people who wanted to quit cigarettes, but I see and meet people who got into vaping because they wanted to blow huge smoke clouds and taste the joyous flavors.

In other words, the little kids I see at the skatepark, the grown ass men I see with man buns, and the weirdos who travel the country to enter in vaping events are just plain ol’ pussies in my eyes. I’m over here trying to fight the urge for a cigarette and these fools are blowing clouds because it “looks cool.” Get the fuck out of here with that shit.

I remember a couple of weeks ago this dude that works in the area right next to mine at work came in with a rose gold kanger vape. he was proudly puffing on it talking about the flavor he’s smoking and how much he paid for everything. I later ran into him and ask him how long he has been vaping just to see what this guy’s true intentions were. He proceeded to tell me that he used to vape a year ago and recently got the urge to vape again… Yes you read that right he “recently got the urge.” What kind of shit is that?! Please explain to me that logic behind this man’s statement?!

*sigh*

It makes me mad thinking about it but oh well.

Well Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Before I start, can I please bash AT&T for like 60 seconds? How in the wide wide world is AT&T practically the mother of all cellular networks but their internet is shitty? To even get to the page where I can write post on WordPress took me forever! Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Soundcloud, Recolor, blah blah blah! THEY ALL TOOK FOREVER TO LOAD!

… sorry

Besides the difficulties that got brought me here, I wanted to talk about Thanksgiving and how much of a Universal holiday it is. Now with me being me, I cannot start off any discussion without a story, so let us begin.

It was 5AM and we just got off the tram, through the guard shack, and out the turnstiles. I was standing out from waiting on my buddy Eric when our old supervisor and her short boyfriend who terribly suffers from the Napoleon complex walked by. With fag clouds blowing I waved to her goodbye and she waved back, yelling “Happy Thanksgiving!” I replied yelling Happy Thanksgiving and you folks will not believe what this female said to me.

“You do celebrate Thanksgiving right?!”

Uh… yes?

What I’m trying to figure out is, what thought processes were going on in that little brain of hers that caused her to question whether or not I celebrated a holiday where the day after Native Americans were slaughtered and diseased ridden. Looking at the picture as a whole, Thanksgiving is literally a holiday where we give thanks. There’s nothing religious about it other than when people “bless” the food. Even then I’m still staring at the deviled eggs praying satan doesn’t find me.

Thanksgiving is a universal holiday that can be celebrated by anyone. Thanksgiving is just a simple event where people gather to give thanks to one another, eat food, and laugh. Thanksgiving is probably the most funniest holiday ever as well as the easiest becasue you don’t have to buy anyone gifts for anyone. For her to even question the fact whether or not I celebrate Thanksgiving is just silly.

I really can’t complain too much, she’s probably eating unseasoned chicken with canned cranberries and honey baked ham ordered online. Anyways, I wanted to remind everyone that we should all be thankful for the people who are around us, the love that we share, and the peace that we try to strive for. Even though a shooting broke out at a local park here in my city, we shouldn’t let such violence and evil distraught us from the true meaning of life which is love.

Happy Thanksgiving!

i figured out wordpress

WordPress is just a much more sophisticated version of facebook but with a spin.

It’s a blogosphere, a place for people to create and express, while sharing stories or news. It’s a community that its users (us) created and molded into what it is today. I like the fact that we can share the work of others and even have a chance to say a little bit. I think this is more fun this facebook.

You’re Allowed To Change — Thought Catalog

This is a post from Thought Catalog. It was very moving for me considering the fact that this entire year has been full of many changes. Not just externally but inside of me. The things I want to do, the ideas I want to say, the people who are around me.

I’m glad that I read this.

Ieva UrencevaYou’re allowed to outgrow certain people; people who don’t see the greatness in you, people who don’t believe in you and people who don’t see you for who you really are. You’re allowed to distance yourself from anything that doesn’t motivate you or make you grow, you’re allowed to choose who has a say…

boy & computer

I have such a tough time writing that when I get so flusters at the idea that I’m trying to transfer to my laptop screen, I end up deleting it all and start talking about weird shit. That never really turns out good becasue… well you know, Its just some oddball character crap and people are like, “What in the flying fuck is this kid talking about again?” Truthfully, I’m just another dude on the internet with a blog that gets maybe one or two views per day.

Y’all know I’ve been running this blog ever since 2010? This site is very unsucessful, but I’ll keep trying and maybe one day it will get somewhere.

Thanksgiving is literally this Thursday and it’s time for social media to get ni**afied again. I remember last year #BlackThanksgiving was trending for damn near a week and it had to be the funniest thing to hit the internet since “P.O.P HOLD IT DOWN.” Today as I scroll on my twitter feed I’m searching for that one hashtag that has the flamboyance of a gay man to make its way to the trending charts and destroy the internet once again as it did last year…

Okay but really though, I look forward to Thanksgiving every year. It’s the one and only holiday that isn’t centered around praising a little baby that was supposedly seeded by god and born by some random woman with a generic ass name. If I’m wrong about Thanksgiving not having a religious background than please correct me becasue my whole life I’ve been taught that we’re supposed to be giving Thanks. But let’s not forget the fact that the Pilgrims killed the natives like a day after (those white devils).

With my cousins Mac & Cheese on my mind, all last night while talking to my homies DMT and BEEZY B, I couldn’t help but think about food. I’m not sure if it’s becasue I hadn’t ate since 3PM yesterday or imaginary deviled eggs sounded really good. (By the way, are they called deviled eggs becasue white people are referred to as white devils by the NOI and deviled eggs are practically white?) Excuse my madness but Thanksgiving has to be the best holiday since Christmas. Like Christmas is fun, but it surely isn’t Thanksgiving.

i guess so

I’m one shy fellow. I sometimes wish I wasn’t because I’d like to persue a few relationships but my shyness destroys everything. Kind of like when Michael Jackson would be on live TV getting interviewed, you could just tell that he was nervous.

Thats me.

I wander through life wishing she could be in my Cadillac Dreams but unfortunately I’m just not strong willed enough to do anything. So instead I awkwardly stare from the distance as the rush of boxes pass. My life is a strange world. The internet serves to reject me while creating memes out of the weak ones.

I guess it’s just another part of life.
