How are ya, now?
Oh me, not s’bad. It’s been .. a wild ride for me the past two weeks. I was (still am) sick, recovering, and overextending myself yet again. Adulting is hard sometimes, but boy we somehow survive.
Here’s some stuffs I thought I’d share with ya this week, Ferda.
The other week I went to see a band called Cancer Christ for the first time. My homie JP mentioned that their set would be wild. I used to throw punk shows in backyards in Compton so I figured things couldn’t have been much wilder than that. I was so fucking wrong. You can watch some videos here if you want to see how wrong I was. Someone launched a beer bottle across the crowd during their set and out of ALL the people in the crowd, it met me and my forehead instead. I thought I was going to pass out from the pain, but I was by myself and knew that JP wasn’t going to find me if I R.I.P.’d on the spot. I survived and left the show with a massive lump that eventually turned into a black eye. Safe to say, JP was right lol
My best friend Bea recently had her super soft birthday. The moment I had trained for the past few weeks had arrived.. Century Club. I broke my previous record of 75 shots in 75 minutes and made it to 76 , but died yet again. Out of about ten of us that started, only three of my friends completed all 100 shots in the Century Club and you know, they were so damn smart about it. They played to win and now they’re legends. While I sit here sulking in my ineptitude.. like I was so damn close, why did i fold !?
I revisted a few of Jake Frew’s videos this week and man.. the color grading, the flow, the building of the story in his videos are so sick that it should probably see a doctor. Ba dum tssss. He inspires me to tell better stories and capture a lot more b-roll. I want to be just like him when I grow up.
Dipsy was so excited to go on a date with a girl he just met. She invited him to a Dodger Game and although Dipsy hasn’t gone since he was a kid, he was excited. In an attempt to calm his nerves, Dipsy brought a backpack with a bunch of pregame goodies. As they were walking up to the stadium, Dipsy’s date mentions that they won’t be able to bring in his backpack so they decide to.. hide it in the trees. “No one would notice” she said. I’m not sure why they thought this was a genius idea, but Dipsy in his cat-whipped mind came back after the game to find his backpack gone. Fucking newbs lol
I was cleaning up my archives and came across this jpeg i saved once upon a time. You’re welcome, lol.
Spotify’s Unwrapped recently came out, but I’m sure you knew that already. Some poopy pants on IG were like “nO oNe CaReS aBt YoUr SpOtIfY uNwRaPped”. I think what they meant to say was that they don’t care. I, on the other hand, really enjoy seeing them, I think it’s dope. I also like to bug people about going to shows togeva if i find out we actually like the same stuffs. My personal unwrapped music has not changed very much in the past two years, go figure lol
Here’s a favorite photo i’ve taken since the last spam mail. This kid said “this is for all for you hardcore kids who are Tsunami dick riders”. I don’t listen to Tsunami like that but I thought it was hilarious. Much respect to this kid.
I’ve been trying not to be sad about my cousin KC every day. Between working on updating her website, designing flyers, pitching emails, brainstorming outreach ideas all while trying to keep my Uncle from starting family arguments, I’m just exhausted. But there is work to be done and I must keep going for her. I just wish that sometimes I didn’t have to do it all by myself.
I’ll be offline this weekend so until next time,
