i'm behind the camera filming the whole time. these are some random recordings from this weekend when some of us got together to try to make a new song.
this is the same camera used to take the pictures from the previous posts.

Addied Up by DoD Boyz (Facebook Video Collage)


made the video by recording the computer screen while on facebook. these were verses we wrote & rapped & messaged to each other on facebook months ago. they were rough cuts, but since we can't ever get together to make the song, i'm releasing a video with just the first draft facebook videos.

sidenote: this is a remake of the song "tatted up" by D4L, the beat used is the instrumental of that song.

2. it definitely makes me take in more of the city and observe/notice the smaller things that i simply would not have seen before
3. chicks dig it.

it's how you flip it



































"it's not what you say... it's how you say it"
- mac dre

"no idea's original, there's nothin new under the sun
it's never what you do, but how it's done
what, you base your happiness around material, women, and large paper
that means you inferior, not major"
- nas

and of course:
"good artists copy, great artists steal"
- pablo picasso

it is definitely true that the more creativity you take in, the more creativity you are able to produce. regardless of whether or not the input of creativity is in the same medium or genre or realm as the art you wish you create.

so true

source: xkcd
...in case you didn't know.


i really wish i could have heart-to-heart conversations with every person i know. they're just so rare, and i think this lack of deep conversation leads to people concluding that they must have deeper inclinations than their peers, when in reality, i'm sure most people have the same profound thoughts and contemplations. even the people you would least expect.

however, there is also no denying that there are just some thoughts that you wouldn't ever verbalize -- or couldn't. i always wonder how many people have the same thoughts i do and how many reach different conclusions from the same set of initial thoughts.

cool calm pete - a forgotten inspiration

listening to his music yesterday, i randomly remembered that cool calm pete was the man who got me into wearing black-framed glasses in the first place, huge no homo. he's a korean-american rapper/producer signed to the well-known indie label, definitive jux (home to other great underground rappers such as murs, cage, aesop rock, del the funkee homosapien, etc). one day many years ago, i was flipping through XXL and saw this korean dude being featured on a page as an up-and-comer. and i knew had to get the glasses...

































this is my favorite song of his:

Lost - Cool Calm Pete
