KELLY BUNDY.


So I'm going to say that "Married With Children" was like, a huge part of my childhood. It's not that my parents didn't give a fuck what I watched, they just didn't really know.. that, or maybe they really didn't care.. REGARDLESS! Aside from having the hugest crush on Bud, Kelly had the illest fashion ever. Still does. If ever I get a time machine, I'm robbing the set. I WANT EVERYTHING. Trashy grunge kind of slutty classic Kelly.

















Get 'em, girl.

WHAT 'CHU SAY?

"THE INNOCENCE WE HAD, HAD GOTTEN TAINTED YEARS AGO. TOO JADED TO ADMIT IT THOUGH. WE GET FADED TOO, FORGET IT, THEN SOBER UP, KNOWING IT'S STILL TRUE."

- AYOMARI.

...

As a really good friend, you almost cost me something that meant the world to me with an incriminating e-mail. I was however, able to get a word in. I need to re-evaluate our situation. I want you in my life, but only if it doesn't cost me mine.

I have four boys, and four girls. They are my world. I won't lose them for anything.

DON'T JUST WANDER BACK AND FORTH..

We're losing our ability to speak truth. If we've learned anything, it's that we get along best because we fully put ourselves out there. Flaws and all. No judgements, almost an understanding of mistakes.
I will always be there for you. There's something about our relationship that fully makes me want to take care of you. I don't feel the need to, I WANT to. Reality of it is, I can't fully do that. There's only so much I can do and say. All your choices are just that, your choices. I can only hope they get better daily. That's not an insult, I question my own choices a lot.

This year has been so fucked up.

I've finally grasped the fact that I can let things go a lot easier now, but I'm not sure if that's good or bad. Does that shit make me heartless, or grown?

I'm drowning in a pool of doing right and pleasing everyone. It feels good some days, but if I could take myself to the shallow end, maybe these deep waters wouldn't feel so cold.

TWO MORE WEEKS..

Two more weeks of freedom; then we gotta kiss our fun life good-bye. Half of me is really stoked since I haven't been in school since winter, the other half is just like, "UGGHHH BITCH CUNT FUCK I DON'T WANNA!!". So, you know. It's a good balance.
Three of the classes on my schedule I've already taken, so hopefully I can some how get out of them? Yeah, let's hope for that. Bitter sweet you guys, I'll miss you all. Ha.
Life has been super busy! Helping my dude out with a magazine, still editing, still really, really, behind in editing, still haven't painted, still loaftin'. When you're on your feet/looking at a computer screen for twelve hours, you don't want to paint like.. at all. In all honesty, I haven't painted since like the week I bought paint. Take your judgements somewhere else!

So basically, life is busy but I ain't getting shit done. HOORAH!

INTRODUCING THE LEADER OF THIS MOVEMENT..


My boy can fucking rap. Hit the jump.


Flaco Escobar is doing it real big right now. If you've been waiting for some real, fresh, gritty hip hop, stop looking; I've got it for you.

YOU AND THAT CRAZY CREW..

You know there's a reason why my female circle is so small.. and I'll put it simply: females are catty. They are! We all talk shit about each other and judge each other on no information what-so-ever.
Aside from my team, my closest friends are males. I understand that with this, will come females who wish the worst upon me. I've only ever wanted the best for my male friends, but never, EVER, have I ragged on a girl before giving her a chance.
Look, here's my honest opinion. I'm sorry if you feel threatened by me. I wish of nothing but to have a great summer.. but talking shit about me, MORE THAN ONCE, with your lame ass friends is NOT going to get you anything you want. I refuse to RSVP to your whiny pity party invitation.

Okay, you wanna play rough?

You have absolutely no fucking idea who the fuck you're fucking with. Lame ass.

YOU SHOULD WATCH THIS.

UMMMM....



Yeah. Yum.

OOOOOHHH SOMETIMES, I GET A GOOD FEELIN..

FULL FLEX.

DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO. DIPLO.

Really excited for this mini-festival. DIPLO! OMERGERRRDDDDDDD!! How so much dj'ing talent fits into one suit! NOW WE GET TO SEE IT LIVE, FOLKS! I will be live-tweeting the whole experience. So if you're not there, watch twitter..!
I'm not a Skrillex fan, at all. I will stay to watch a little bit of him, for reviewing purposes. Grimes, as I've blogged before, is completely over-rated in my eyes. The girl has a voice, but after two songs or so, I'm good. I AM REALLY STOKED for Pretty Lights. Second in excitement ranking to Diplo. I haven't listened to Tokimonsta at all so I won't say anything.. and the others I'm sure will be a fun time. I'm really all about Diplo and Pretty lights though. I'm excited! AH!

FOR THE RECORD: THE BEAT JUNKIES

LRG x BEAT JUNKIES - FOR THE RECORD: THE ONLINE PREMIERE

In 1992 Green Lantern rings were given to some of hip hop's illest DJs. The simple jewellery pieces ended up symbolizing so much more than what the world had anticipated. There is no better way to document some of the dopest musical talent than what LRG has produced for us. This short documentary is every hip hop lover's dream. Meet the Beat Junkies! J-Rocc, DJ Babu, D-Styles, DJ Rhettmatic, DJ What?!, Mr. Choc, Icy Ice, Curse, DJ Shortkut, Melo-D, Symphony and DJ Havik scratch and cut their way to show music addicts everywhere, just how much they have given to the music world. The best part? They're ridiculously humble about it.

Let's celebrate that humbleness. To share the 20th anniversary love, LRG presented each crew member of the Beat Junkies with custom varsity letterman jackets. So ill!




"I really thought that everything that could be done with turntables had been done, until I saw the World Famous Beat Junkies. It was just mind blowing...guys were doing a routine that I thought was absolutely impossible."

- Jazzy Jeff

Take yourselves on a journey through turntablism, inspiration and respect. The documentary hosts appearances by A Trak, Q Bert, Peanut Butter Wolf and DJ Jazzy Jeff.

The Beat Junkies have taken to an international tour to commemorate 20 years of fresh and "For the Record" gets you even more excited for the next 20. Dj'ing in style, true to their name, and every bit of amazing. This short documentary has put a staple on hip hop history. If you've ever had a favorite DJ crew that wasn't the Junkies, get ready to change your mind. Turn your speakers up folks, get inspired. This is fifteen minutes that you're going to want to replay a few times!

IT'S CRAZY WHERE BLOGGIN HAS TAKEN ME..


As a blogger, I've always written for one thing, and one thing only. Myself. That isn't meant to sound ignorant, I just never envisioned where it could take me.

Here I am. Ten years into this madness and it has brought me such great opportunities, and such great people. One of those people, include Perla.

All the way from Houston, Texas..! A love for hip hop and music has taken us to both New York and California, and I owe it all to blogging. That shit is crazy to me! I'm so thankful for this girl. Take two writers who have the same love for music and you're on to something good.

Today is her birthday. Hectic schedules and living in different cities prevent us from seeing each other every day, but I can promise to keep her in my life forever. She is one of the most amazing people to ever grace my life. She has the soul of an angel, the mind of a creative, and most importantly, we click more than the hipsters who hit refresh on our websites.

All my love, Perla. You have yourself a wonderful birthday. I look forward to every chance we are re-united. XOXOXO, beautiful!

FOREVER MY FAVE FIREWORK IN THE SKY.

"Hey, this really is the greatest country in the world. We just like to help people remember that.."

-DAD.

Every Canada Day, I get super emotional. This past week has been a real test to see just how well I can maintain tears and laughter.. at the same damn time;) It's so easy to admire someone who gave back to the community. Someone who put on a firework display, gave out free hot dogs and burgers, free drinks, simply because.. they loved the community, and this country. I'm even luckier to have had that person as my dad.



Canada Days without you just aren't the same. Forever remembering every single thing you gave me, every single firework, every single hot dog, every single smile.. and by smile, I mean the ones you gave to thousands. You did that! You showed such love to complete strangers, and I owe every bit of kindness in me, to that.

If I could ever become even just a speck of what you are.. if ever I am JUST that, just a speck, I am thankful. You are the most amazing man to ever have graced my life, and I miss you more today than ever.. these tears keep coming, but I use the moments to keep every memory alive.

Happy 145th birthday, Canada. The greatest country in the world.
