Bought new SkullCandy earbuds
Now, whenever I step out of my dorm and hit play, it’s like I’m entering a zone devoid of sounds. It’s like being underwater, except the sound of the current vibrating against your eardrum is replaced by the heavy bass and snare from A Tribe Called Quest. Good luck trying to get my attention.

Mos Def signs to G.O.O.D. Music
Taken from this article. “Just as Kanye returned to his roots to scoop up Common, he recently recruited his buddy Brooklyn rapper/singer/actor Mos Def into the GOOD Music fold. Long regarded as a formidable talent by underground devotees and mainstream fans alike, Mos appeared on “Two Words” (from Kanye’s 2005 The College Dropout) and “Drunk and Hot Girls” (from KW’s 2007 Graduation). Since his...

I would totally skip class in the morning if I...
But not only do I stand out as the only black male in the class, who also has long hair, but the professor and I have formed this pseudo-relationship, and he idolized my father back in college. -_-
I'm going to make a list.
Of all the unnecessary crap that I’d like to buy if I was employed (note: employed. Not rich) and how much it would cost. This is mostly going to be a list of clothes, shoes, accessories, gadgets, games and completely useless doodads. I’m not sure whether this will motivate me to save up, or force me to realize how simple it is. But I’m gonna do it anyway.
My Zune player has 5112 songs on shuffle while I try to gather my thoughts. At some point, one of the songs may inspire me to start putting in work.
The Human Condition
Her: you know what i’m starting to notice? Me What? Her my class had to do presentations on nonprofit organizations last week and 90% were about save the puppies/sharks/rabbits/puppies/puppies/kittens/puppies. and when i was watching a show on a homeless girl with my roommate felt worse for the girl’s dog Me People are desensitized to human rights atrocities. Her no, not at...
And Yet, I'm Still Single.
The following quote was taken from a female friend’s formspring answer roughly 8 months ago. I hadn’t seen it until just now, and it sparked something. I’ll explain why towards the end. Hmm… My dream guy, eh? My Mr. Impossible-to-Find? He is perfectly flawed. Blessed with charm & wit, he can carry out a great conversation. He has an awesome sense of humor that’s...
Pencils on Deck
As soon as I can afford it, I’m going to go down to the student center, buy a sketchbook, some pencils, some erasers, and some straight edges, and start drawing again. It’s a part of the solution to the brain overload previously mentioned. It’s been roughly five years since I got into the comic book/urban art world, and truly started appreciating people who etch their...
Something I’m going to start doing (either weekly or bi-weekly, depending on how lazy I am) is posting a video/song of a classic. This week’s video is a “Just A Moment” by Nas & Quan. I could write a bunch of stuff about what this song means, etc. etc., but as a man I met once said, you have to leave things open for interpretation. So here it is.
When I initially registered for this here tumblr, it was in-part to have an excess dump-off site for my radioactive brain activity. And for a time, it worked pretty well. Then the summer started, and bled over into college, and somewhere along the way it became increasingly difficult to keep focus on just one thing. Even now as I’m typing this, I’m thinking about a slew of other...

Five More Minutes, Mom...
Sleep is the one thing in the world that I enjoy, but purposely delay for insignificant reasons. I told myself I’d be in bed by 11 tonight, yet here I am, at 2:09 A.M. on Tuesday morning, sitting wide-awake. Stranger still, is that I’ll have the audacity later to want more sleep when the time comes for me to wake up. Then I’ll stumble around campus for a few hours, droning...
Lord, Grant Me the Strength to Wake Up.
Heaven only knows that 8:00 A.M. is too early for any class to start, let alone Law & American Society. -_-
The next fool that calls me Wacka Flocka is getting knocked the fuck out. That nigga did not patent the dreadlock hairstyle, and I’ve been alive long before he got his lil claim to fame. So calm that shit down, and cool the fuck out. Thank you.
What do we want?

8 & 16-bit games had the greatest soundtracks.
Watching “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World” reminded me of that. Super Mario Bros. Donkey Kong Zelda Galaga Metroid Sonic Street Fighter Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pokemon These are the games whose sounds you can recognize without any visual cues. I remember when I had the death soundbyte from Super Mario Bros. as a ringtone on my phone. Whenever it went off, no matter where I...

People always used to tell me I had an old soul. I think I’m finally starting to see it. My taste in style, in art, and in music, though modern at times, is often reflective of the golden eras of American culture, where there were definitive movements behind each look, each sound, each philosophical taste. Since the late ’90s, we’ve been more of an amalgamation of these distinct...
Feels like a Kid Cudi night.
Demo Tape on repeat. Mr. Mescudi is the textbook definition of headnodic.

No one did the right thing.

Starve. Most likely. Money is pretty tight at the moment. I’ll be living off pastries and sweet tea for the next five days.
Learning New Shit Every Day.
Found out today that I only have five meals a week on my current plan, which I’d previously been unaware of. Right while I was walking to the dining hall to get some breakfast, and got rejected. I won’t be able to eat a meal until next week. Lesson learned, I guess.

The Exception, not the Rule.
Food for thought. Terrorism and Al-Queda is to Islam as the Ku Klux Klan is to Christianity. Let that seep in. Alright, continue. A group of radicals who rationalized extreme actions and completely insane leaps in logic all in the name of a peaceful faith. Fact: Roughly 2000 people (black AND white) were presumed to have been killed because of the KKK in the period between 1865-1877. This...

I never assumed that the deliciously delicious sweet nectar that is an Arizona was made in the state of the same name. I was moreso pondering the awkwardness of the situation that their titles might bring upon the unsuspecting. Also, I really, really just want an Arizona right now.
anotherasiankid replied to your photo:
Love this background though. Where did you find it? I don’t even remember, dude. :/
If you buy an Arizona at a store in Arizona, is it still called an Arizona? Are you drinking the essence of the state? Or is it just called “Drink,” since you can’t buy a whole state (unless you’ve got big bawse money)? Or do the two cancel each other out, like a math equation, making the Arizona drink simply non-existant in Arizona the state? Or am I just thinking way too...
