Long ago when I was young the days seemed long and my summers seemed precious. Thanks to age and defying storylines that created the most eccentric and fun filled memories of my life, I’ve become a man named Afro.
Afro is a simple guy, he smokes American Spirits, listens to the same rotation of music for long periods of time before he switches songs, and he is always after something.
These “somethings” can be but of many things. A computer, skateboards, an atlantis BIC, heine bros coffee, a woman, money, a college degree, and the list goes on.
With so much on the table, Afro feels overwhelmed and turns to vibrations of sound to express his feelings towards everyday life and how he is treated.
Sometimes Afro chains smokes cigarettes will drinking starbucks coffee that was brewed at home inside of a small little garage. This garage is what Afro has dubbed “Studio 24,” and creates a lot of his music inside of those four corners.
When Afro is alone he gets really sad, so sad that he smokes more weed and chains smokes more cigarettes to ease his mind as he tries to write through his blurry eyes. Even when Afro does this to himself he still doesn’t shed a single tear. He tries to but most of the time it doesn’t happen.
Frustrated Afro reaches for a bottle that only holds 24oz’s.
He then cries every tear he was holding in until he falls asleep.

I haven’t been committed to writing on my site daily as I did earlier in the year. Its not that I haven’t run out of ideas, it’s the fact that I wanted to make post that dig deeper than just me scratching the surface. Other than that, I’ve low-key been behind the scenes piecing articles about stuff I want together and have also been writing daily on AndroidHeadlines.
Other than that, here’s a quick update on my life.
I think the last time I was here I made a post about the SnowStorm that was headed our way. Since then we have run into another big snowstorm that came and went. The snow literally blanketed Louisville for a day and quickly melted and returned back to the lakes and rivers. Personally I was devastated because I wanted to go out and take photos of the snow and try to get some cool angles. But guess what? I didn’t happen.
Besides my sadness over the snow melting, I’m really hoping that we get an even BIGGER snow storm next time around. In the midst of all this madness, I’ve been working as usual, even staying up longer just so I can get in some reading time or just to record some music. See my goal is to become a much quicker reader while being able to comprehend every little bit of info I come across, and also I’m trying to make better music so of course I got to stay in the studio longer.
So that’s just a little update of what’s been keeping me away from here. I’ll talk to you guys soon… maybe sooner than you think.

Once again, thanks and lets see if I can get my following to 1,000!

Awwwe, Well Happy Anniversary to me!!!
WordPress sent me a notification telling me that 6 years ago today is when I created this blog. Surprisingly I remember the day I actually made this little piece of shit site. Keep in mind that I got like 20 other wordpress sites so I may be confusing the beginning of another site with this one’s, but lets just say I was thinking very creatively that day. All I wanted to do was put together a site that allowed me to write about whatever I had going on in my life and it would simply just match the name.
After a long 10 minutes of thinking (I had no patience then), the name Exploding Rock came into my head. I believe I was a junior in high school, or at least going into that year. Since that historical moment I have been “practicing” my writing. I say it like this because over time you see me slowly develop into a “good writer”. I’m not the best and am I nowhere near a professional, all though I do tell myself I’m the greatest.
I’m still trying to get over my “is’s”, “its”, and passive words, but that just comes from me not blogging as much as I should. Besides that, here we are 6 years later and still going at it with my post about life, poetry, and just much more nonsense that comes out of my brain.
Thanks for being a reader! Keeping Tuning in for more stuff that has nothing to do with rocks!
Well hello my friends. We have made it into the new year and everyone managed to stay alive. Ins’t that great? I mean look how far w have come, its crazy to see everyone growing up so fast and having kids! Now half of you people re thinking, isn’t this guy only 19? Whats his friends doing having kids? Well to start off I just know a few people that I have graduated with that have recently had a child and I am proud of them. At least it wasn’t while they was still in school. Second of all I’m still amazed by the fact that they have kids and there real world live are already starting. Either way its there choice and if thats what makes them happy then let it be.
Now that I got that randoms stuff out the way I just wanna start off by saying that 2013 is about to be the next big thing since 2012. Technology is changing and so is people. Life in my eye sight is moving extraordinarily fast! I’m pretty sure its like that for every 19 yr old freshman trying to work a part time job and go to school. Life is rough for us! lol! But things are getting way advanced and a lot of new stuff has caught my attention like the tablets flooding the market and the new thin laptops such as the ultrabooks and chromebooks. I remember as a child I would envision having all sorts of cool technological devices and now here I am in the tablet era getting mind boggled by all the new stuff. Like lets take a look at Android, there OS is being used for tons of stuff…well from my knowledge just for consoles…well gaming period. But the point I’m trying to get across is that not too long ago phones were like bricks and now we have the new iPad mini that weighs like paper. Crazy huh?
With technology so advanced and hi tech the thought of robots also intrigue me. With new technological advancements like this dropping in 2013 you don’t know when you’ll see the terminator knocking on your door talking about how he’s going to repo your car in 3 weeks if you don’t make your last payment. It probably wont happen but the thought is hysterical.
I’m beginning to sound a little off track, my whole focus was on 2013 but now I’ve gone on to talk about computers and other nerdy stuff that my stupid friends won’t understand. Maybe that’s a sign? It most likely isn’t but if it was, I’d be Eisenstein.
Okay so I’m rambling on, I know, but this is my blog. I only made this post so I can wish everyone a happy new year but its like 2 weeks in and it wouldn’t matter. So I thought I’d tell a story about how this is gonna be a crazy year but that didn’t work. So to end this very disappointing post I want to leave you with a bit of knowledge.

So I know there has to be at least one person who is a very well respected blogger who has taken a look at my blog to see how much of a fail it is. Just look at it, well at how I write. I try to make my self sounds smart when I’m just a simple guy with a mind full of ideas that would make people get there lazy american asses up and actually go cut the lawn. See did you get that? I don’t think you got it. But as I write this I see that when I blog I write down what is going on in my mind. Stuff that I say when I talk to my idiotic friends and teach them something new because they sho’ aint teaching me anything new!
I tried to be a nerd at a time because I thought of how cool it would be to make a rocket ship that would fly to the sun and see what was inside…. No I’m joking, I wanted to just be smart and be really awesome at computers so I could be that guy people would ask about how to do such and such on a computer. Plus the guys in them movies looked cool doing it, matter of fact they still do. I don’t care what y’all dumb retards who hate smart people gotta say. There’s a reason why there in the gifted class in your still in LD. How did you even get here to my site anyway? Was you trying to find away to better your self so you searched up some random stuff just to come across a blog that talks about random stuff? Go read a book.
Now I’m really no writer, I completely fail at it. Do you know how many times I walk up to my English teacher in class to ask her random questions like “Did I do this right?” Or “I’m not sure on what you just said 2 minutes ago”, and get this. I’m in English Honors. I know its CRAZY! English honors and not to bright in the writing field. You can go over my whole blog and find so many errors that I missed or what my spell checker missed. I don’t suck at spelling to much though, only the big words I have never heard of before tricks me up when I’m not paying attention….but back to what i was saying, I’m NOT A WRITER!!! I would like to think that but looking at what I read is like reading my own mind. My mind is really crazy/messed up.
Theres so many things that go on in my head I don’t know what to do. I guess I’ll just keep writing on here and have my on and off readers look at what I think of. Maybe one day I’ll get popular and people will like viewing my blog, but I doubt that.
