NYE is not my thing. too many people, extreme chaos…mixed with alcohol and whatever stimulant you prefer and you’ll find yourself amidst a circus. i like to spend the holiday with as many friends as possible and in a safe space, like not searching for random clubs or parties. this year it was a fancy dinner at a swanky place. very nice, adult-like and fun. i only have a few pictures because i went home early like a loser:(
*oysters looks so nasty, but they are pretty damn good.
*NICO was there, he’s the best…
*music by Q TIP and RICH MEDINA, ha. that’s really YOUNG SCOOZLE and HARRY.
while searcing for the video “Shorty Swing My Way” by KP and ENVYI, i instead found another version done by some talented young girls in high school. it’s cute and hilarious. it brought back memories of my friends and i in the early 90′s, remaking videos and pretending we were TLC! they’ve even done a remake for Rihanna’s “Disturbia” video. while their work provided entertainment, i was super impressed by these gals. i mean, they’re young and i see the progress they’re making. i can appreciate people who set out and do what they want. nothing is flawless in the beginning, you perfect it along the way…
i sent them a message via youtube.com full of praises and best wishes. shoutout to SHAYLA SPANN, the director of these videos.
thanks hyun for this one! the stuff i usually post are oldies, as this is another good one. this before SANTI was SANTOGOLD! (woodrow, is that you?)
Why are you selling dreams of who you wish you could be
A prince in all of the magazines
They’d have no words for the man I’ve seen
Talk real fast ‘fore they see your face
And would they love you if they knew all the things we know
We’ve got these images
We need them to be true
Not ready to believe we’re no more insecure than you
But then there’re girls like me who sit appauled by what we’ve seen
We know the truth about you
Now you’re the prince of all the magazines
That is a dangerous thing
But would they love you if they knew all the things that we know
Those Golden Boys
All a fraud don’t believe their show
Would they love you if they knew all the things that we know
Golden Boy life ain’t a video
Place you in these robes and tell you you’re the greatest man
And you believe and play your cards
Got dealt a winning hand
Don’t you get tired of the show
The kissin’ ass of all the people that you wanna know
When I was young I thought you had it won
I saw you on T.V. you made life look fun
But then years go by and people grow
I realize it’s all a freak show
Girls like me don’t need no bubblin’ mindstate thrown in my face
The way you goin’ ain’t gonna be no stroll in the sunshine
Can’t turn it back now baby you gone and past that line
So give it on up now
What you gonna do
it’s supposedly about her relationship with ERIC CLAPTON. it’s so amazing. the video is by SAMUEL BAYER. he did the famous “Bee Girl” video for Blind Melon (“No Rain). videos back then look so soft and cinematic.
as i get older i’m trying to do all the adult-things i should; like taking care of my health, planning for the future, etc. it’s a bit depressing, but it’s very necessary. recently, i’ve been taking my finances and credit very seriously. i’ve been reading a lot and watching SUZE ORMAN’s show, which covers how to get your finances on track. i know, the very thought is painful for some of us (if not, most), but i suggest you work it out now so it’s less of a mess in the future. even a couple of late payments can hugely impact your score.
if you’re looking to check your *credit score and *FICO score, see below. it will cost you a small fee, but it’s worth it. you may have debts that you forgot about and you can see what’s actually effecting your credit.
*A credit score is a numerical expression based on a statistical analysis of a person’s credit files, to represent the creditworthiness of that person. A credit score is primarily based on credit report information, typically sourced from credit bureaus
this a throwback for real. who remembers this? for all you youngin’s, this short film and animation variety show came out when MTV was still cool and influential. a time when they played real music videos and not ridiculous reality tv and gameshows.
