Every Time I Try to Leave

Something keeps pulling me back. I’m talking about the blog game of course. I was wondering, when people sheepishly say sorry, why do they throw their hands up and get the most absurd look on their face? It’s so uncanny to me. I really do not understand at all the thinking behind it. And then, the person says something like, “Well soooooooorry. I’m not touching it.” How stupid. You know what’s funny about that? I do it all the time.
You want to know someone who is very underrated as an artist? I’ll tell you who-Tim Burton. Que? Yes, I said Tim Burton. He is a filmmaking genius. He is one of the few artists who is able to have mainstream success, yet retain his artistic integrity. He’s also had the longevity to touch more than one generation. His first major hit, "Pee-wee's Big Adventure", was made before I was even born. After looking up his movie list, most of the classic movies of the 90's as well as his newer movies have all received critical acclaim. What he will most be remembered for was a little movie he did called "The Nightmare Before Christmas":

This movie alone cements Tim Burton's legacy, but he has made literally 20 movies. All of them are well known. I didn't even know he made some of the movies he did. Honestly, people should look it up. It's rare one gets to exhibit an artistic legend firsthand while he is is still alive. That just popped up in my head. Why am I blogging while doing laundry? Who cares? Get out of my business.

Hey, Hi, How You Doin'?

Well, guess what? Just kidding, don't guess. I don't have anything to say to you. I'm sitting in my psychology class next to my boy from Detroit, home of the Lions.... yes that good team that's going to the Super Bowl and winning it all. Anyways, on the way to class we were talking about fighting. Yes, that's all we talk about. But anyways, we were talking about big people and people who could fight. I came from the viewpoint that there were a lot of people who looked big to the eye, but had no strength and were just wastes of space. You know who can fight besides Floyd Mayweather Jr.? Manny Pacquiao:

Yea, he's that good. But, guess what? He only weighs around 140. But for his size, he has to register his hands as lethal weapons. Yes I said LETHAL WEAPONS. I'm 225 lbs. Manny Pacquiao can still knock me out. Keep that in mind next time you think of fighting someone. They might be a world class boxer that will kill you. Sorry, I went overboard. Oh and for the record, Kimbo Slice is still the truth. He's been training for a little bit over a year. Cut him some slack. I mean look at him:

He also, will kill you. Or knock your dread off. Ok, I'm done for this one. And, I'm so high I thought I saw a spaceship. Just playing. I don't smoke.

Where Are We Going?

Hey. Notice that this is the first time I started a blog just saying hi. But anyways, I have an amazing story. So, I met this shorty the other day. I got her number, called her up like, "What you doing?" She said, "Nothing." I said, "What's good?" She said, "Not much." I said, "Guess what?" She said, "What's up?" I said, "I think we should hook up." She said, "Ugh" I said, "What?" She said, "But..." I said, "But? Why you stuck?" Ok I'm done. If anyone doesn't know, I just told you a story that is part of a song. How dumb of me. Sorry, I wanted to see what it would look like written out. Oh man, you guys should do this. Say lyrics like you're having a conversation. Some stuff sounds deeper or funnier that way. I don't know why I do these things. I'm strange.

Does anybody read anymore? I'm finding that I can't talk to people about books because they don't read or even look up stuff anymore. They're very visually cultured, yet they can't read a sentence or spell for anything. I read this book my freshman year and I think everyone should read it. It's called "Native Son" by Richard Wright.

This book happens to be one of the most intense books I've ever read in my whole entire career of living. Yes, living my life is a career. Anyways, I recommend it for everyone because it does a good job of portraying life through both the eyes of white America as well as minorities. It's a perfect balance. Get knowledge.

Today is a good day. I'm working my way back to where I need to be. The song of the day has to be "Sweetest Love" by Robin Thicke. He knows how to get that good mood going. I need to stop. How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop? I have the answer. Who freaking cares?
