F=ma isn't it

"happiness is a mediocre state for a middle class existence"--saul williams

I'm not in the mood for mediocre. I want something amazing to fill me and move me. lately i've been discussing "inspiration" with a few friends. As i have mentioned in a previous blog, i just haven't been feeling "it" lately...the "it" that causes your pen to speak forth words from the depths of the universe...the "it" that guides your colors to brush to canvas. that "it" is alluding me at the moment. and you can't force the "it".
[tag me it.]

and me, i'm like Einstein's chalk board, i'm drawn to geniuses.

here's a few things that widened the scope of possibilities.

theo jansen...genius.


[now find the genius in you and enjoy your weekend]

i dont have a clever title.

"I'm an artist. When you tell people that they usually say, 'what's your medium?' I usually say, 'extra large.'"- Jean-Michel Basquiat

i'm in the mood to take a spray can and just write some quotes somewhere in the neighborhood. maybe something to make people think...maybe something to make people smile...maybe something people forgot.

maybe i should just start in the basement...

maybe i should stop all my maybes and take action.

maybe tomorrow.

another lazy saturday and a friend and i were discussing Yo Gabba Gabba.
and the fact that HipHop has officially made it to influence children's programing. my friend, who shall remain nameless, probably secretly enjoys this show more than his one year old nephew [who he claims is the reason why he watches this show]. But yo, i'm really hatin. kid's now a days have Biz beat of the day

and all i remember was growin up to this

6.99 to end your life

Sniper rifle software launched for iPod touch

New BulletFlight program could be a 'killer' app for Apple

Sniper iPod BulletFlight app :Sniper rifle software launched for iPod touch
BulletFlight is a new application has been launched for the iPod touch to help gun users line up a clean shot at their target

A new application has been launched for the iPod touch to help gun users line up a clean shot at their target.

The BulletFlight app, which costs $6.99 to download from the iTunes store, has been developed by Runaway App to turn the iPod touch into a ballistics computer which the company says can provide “quick solutions in the field”.

Users can mount their iPod touch to their rifle, and then use the iPod’s touch-screen to tap in details about the wind conditions, ammunition type, distance to the intended target and even the wind speed.

“Unlike other apps, BulletFlight does not output information in table format,” says the application’s iTunes page. “What it does do is dynamically give you the solution you need now to take that shot.”

The application features built-in profiles for three weapons – the M110 semi-automatic precision rifle, the KAC PDW, and the 14.5in SR16 rifle – although users can add more weapons into the app.

“Environmental calculations are based on the Sierra Bullet model,” says the BulletFlight iTunes entry. “Up to five ballistic co-efficients with corresponding velocity thresholds may be used for each profile.”

BulletFlight is not the first shooting application for the iPhone and iPod touch – that honour goes to iSnipe – but it’s the latest in a long line of unusal apps for the devices, which have included simulated beer-pouring, a fart machine, and even “breathalysers”.

[i'm really disturbed by this...are they serious?]


They've renamed Love. said God is Love. they told us "let go and let GOD". now they've renamed God to the point where my name no longer matches his(?). i'm taking it back to the origin. "let go and let(s) Love"

"it's about time." time--a man made concept to measure life. life should be measured in love. love-unquantifiable. that's how i want to live.

okay it's a new day. snow is still on the ground...i'm still getting accustomed to this stuff. i figure it shouldn't deter me from going outside to face the world. it's so easy to just stay in the warm...but right now i feel adventurous....maybe i'll make a few mixtapes [CDs] and hand em these people from being accosted by lil wayne...introduce them to the beauty of a break beat. i think i might be feeling a little inspired. we'll see how the day goes. ooh maybe i'll work on a mix and put it up for you all to download...would you like that? i'm in a loving mood [couldn't you tell from the above passage?]

well i hope you all have a wonderful day.

stop co-signin'

I might be wrong for this, but right now i don't care. [i might regret what i say tomorrow]

YES we are about to have our first black president.
YES we are EXCITED about that
YES i voted for him.

But why are you? You didn't vote. You stay hating on Americans all the time. And now all of a sudden cause we got a new head of state you want to be down? Fuck you! I don't even know who's your president/prime minister. I doubt i'll be that excited about your elected you don't need to tell me.

WE [those who voted] made history. YOU didn't.

one day away.

some time ago i wrote:

The short-changed masses have deliberately set out to gain some sense. We are not all artist but we have learned to draw our own conclusions in regards to how this government views its people. Its "white is right" regime reigns supreme over everyone...and our birth rights have been denied and renamed as death and taxes. tell me what is left? of this free world....because we would like a peace.
Tomorrows mantra is today's revelation.

and today change is coming. tomorrow change will be here. :)

a return to me

i sorta miss making stuff...getting my hands dirty with oils and pastels...
i just haven't been feeling inspired lately. been over analyzing what is and isn't. i've gotta return to zero[the beginning-the cipher] commune with the stars for a bit. internalize god. become the conductor of my own enlightenment...beating my mantras on drums to pattern the future. because there will be a time when time will bend on hollow knees vibrating the sanctity of now.

i drew a circle and started a revolution

my children need their mother to be more than ordinary. i need people to stop expecting me to be anything other than me. i'm not an artist, not a poet...i'm just trying my best to speak from my be every medium...i'm still learning and growing...

aint just for computers no more. seems like this word has made it into everyday lexicon. i predict it will be the over used word of 2009. i've already come across a few blogs with this word woven intermittenly within its text. we need to retire the words swagger and boss. although i did find it humorous when Max B said "i look like a boss i smell like a boss and i taste like a boss" [dude is so arrogant i can't even get mad at him, he makes kanye look insecure]

On the topic of growing up. I think it was the apostle paul who said something like "When i was a kid i dressed as a kid...when i became an adult i dressed as an adult." [it might have been in the scriptures that King James threw out]

well i say that to tell you this. IF you are still rocking jerseys of your favorite sports figure out in public you really need to dead that. there are only 3 places jerseys should be worn
1. while you are playing that particular sport
2. at the sporting event of that particlar sport
3. at a tail gate party for a sporting event [yup you guessed it] of that particular sport.

*how do you wear a jersey in the cold of winter?

there are no excuses for a grown man [or woman] to put on an article of clothing that has some one else's name [in huge letters] on it. we all know you are not Lebron. DONE.

just thinking...should i?

my father holding me for a picture in a refugee camp

So it's been a few years [4 to be exact] since i've spoken to my father. He doesn't know where i reside, he doesn't have a number to reach me because i don't have any of those articles for him. But i wonder if this will be the year i send him an email or something and start to have a relationship with him. i've been thinking about this since my birthday [which was Nov 20 for future notice...and i accept belated gifts ;) ] and it always becomes more thought of around this time [mom's birthday].

I'm really debating wether or not i really want to get back in contact with him. My brother recently received a phone call from my father and he told me it was like ressurecting the dead, to hear a voice that has been non existant for so long.

I'm trying to weigh the pros and cons of this

I get a dad back in my life.
kids get to meet their grand father

i'm going to really have to come to grips with issues i have with him
i'm going to have to completely forgive him [i say i have but i mean it's easy to forgive when the person isn't around...because there are no actions to prove otherwise...this really isn't a con]
i'm going to have to hear it from my moms if/when she finds out i'm speaking with my father. [and it's not like the "Oh I hate your father" talk...she still loves dude after everything...which i have vowed will not be my case if that situation were to ever occur to me...sorry babe.]

okay so maybe i'm still not really ready. and i dont want my pops to think that i'm just getting in contact with him for monetary gain or to get a piece of his estate or any of that foolishness. I just miss having a dad...
