The world according the Kanye

Copyright abcnews.com

Morning world and all that Kanye west seems to allow to live in it. So I recently read on my illustrious Facebook feed that Mr. West wants his wife to be the next Coco Chanel.

Pause. Stop.  Looking with my eternal bitchface. Now I am all for one having dreams and aspirations.  Makes sense. Make your self happy by finding your calling but why Kanye are you trying so desperately to shove Kim down everyone’s throat. (Dirty mind has kicked in and stop) :mrgreen:

I myself is all for Kim doing what Kim wants to do. What I am suspicious about is why Kanye continues to be her mouth piece (dirty mind stop that).
I have not really seen any article where Kim is actually stating this is her dream.

We have seen her dressed in the best  designer fashion, been a muse for a fashion house and been called fashionable, but let her speak for herself.

It seems the fragile flower that is Kim needs everyone to be speaking for her. She cannot be that vapid where she cannot form sentences, right?

This is one media relationship I have seen where the guy has to change the world’s view of their mate.  There is so much other fuckery going on aka BBWLA, LHHATL and NYC and no one is going around defending their mates behavior.

Sorry to say it but hoes are already housewives so this whole campaign Kanye is doing is a mute point at best.

Just make and produce music Kanye. Prety please with a yeezus cracker on top?

1-7-2014 ………. Expressions

Hey good people who might be reading this. Today was day of expressions. More specifically , Facial expressions. I work in retail ( much to the chagrin of my mom) and I get to experience more facial expressions everyday.

Faces

Today was a bit different because people seemed a bit happier. I know most of you have heard or read about this polar effect  that  is sweeping the United States and dropping into some dangerously cold temperatures.

Today in my part of the Midwest ( also known as Omaha, Nebraska) we had some relief. SOme people who walked in were downright happy that the temp was in the teens rather than negative shenanigans.  I was greeted today with smiles and some really open people. I will say Midwesterns that i have met so far have been very open and polite… But remember I am a slightly jaded NYorker so this is kinda new.

Of course I did have my non responsive and downright rude customers but in the service industry , it can’t be helped. Either you pissed them off or they are having a really bad day and feel the need to take it out on you. I used to get upset but working in retail gives you the thickest skin on the planet.

I took these peeps with a grain of salt. That doesn’t affect me nor did I give them bad service. MY mama raised me right! ( thanks mom)

This is actually the part of the job I truly like… The people watching.  Sometimes you may never see these people again or maybe they will just come back because they like dealing with you.

All in how you treat em I supposed.

Anyhoo stay Golden

01-03-14 …….. To do Lists

Hey talents and hello third day of 2014. I actually had a day off yesterday and my biggest concern was drinking my quart of water ( Yeah I know that humans should have 2 quarts a day but I am working up to that) and doing laundry. I know they do not sound like great amazing things to do but being a self professed procrastinator, that was a lot.

I also began the 52 week money challenge on 01-01-2014. For those that may not know what that is here is a link .  The money I am saving has its own jar plus I bought a sweet calendar 14633_1 It contains when every bill gets paid, paydays, what I need to save and my to do lists for the month.

I am happy to getting back to being organized.

 

Happy 3 rd day of 2014.

01-01-2014………. Welcome to the newest Chapter

Good morning Talents. I hope all of you are here to see another day to try  do again.  2013 was another defining year for me in the sense of I had lots of time for introspection. I looked deeper than I ever had, took chances and let the universe take it course.  Today when I woke, I had a conversation with the almighty. I let our relationship slip last year because I was so focused on everything wrong instead of just maintaining hope and having faith.

I know many do not like to hear fate has a hand but it only has a hand with every decision we make.  Talk is cheap so there will not be too many resolutions coming from me about what I will be doing. Sometimes telling people what you will be doing only sets you up for failure especially when some around you want you to fail.

Just remember you have to be your biggest motivator no matter what . Believe in yourself and what you want to do. Take life by the reins and do not be afraid. The road to success is not a straight line no matter what you were taught to believe.

Stay Golden loves and make 2014 as amazing as you are!!!

A little music to get your butt moving 😉

 

Man of Steel —— A trek in Movie going

Man of Steel Poster

Hey Good People. Last Friday , my friend Nakia and I went to the movies. The reason why this is such a big deal is that I have not been to the movies in about a full year. I am sorry but spending $15 for one movie ( outside of buying the DVD) just makes no sense but since I am leaving NYC in about a month, it is a great way to spend time with one my coolest friends.

We originally decided to see despicable me 2 but changed our minds because honestly though I love the first movie, I really did not want to be around kids especially on a Friday evening. ( Do not get me wrong, love the kids but when a movie first comes out, I am anti about it).

We changed the tickets to Man of Steel. I will admit. We did not see this movie because we really wanted to see it. We just wanted to be in Air conditioning for about 2 hours and Regal Cinemas on 13th and union square in NYC did not fail on that. ( Thank you)

FYI – Slight Spoilers so don’t hate me. I warned ya 😉

So we took our seats and had our oversized large beverages and snacks and waited. About 20 mins of previews which of course is the norm so no surprise there.

Once Man of Steel began, I was honestly happily surprised. Now I have seen and read so many people either really loving this movie or just out and out hating it. I will say it is definitely something I have come to expect from modern SuperHero Movies. Over the top fight sequences and visual fx that make your eyes drool.

Jorell. Cal dad’s

It showed how Superman had to be a drifter as an adult because every time he would save humanity, he would have to disappear. Honestly, if that is not a modern superhero issue outside of Tony Stark, I do not know what it is. The beginning included flashbacks to youth and what he did as a lad and even a bully he saved who later is shown as an adult.

What I loved that as an origin story, we did learn more about Krypton though we managed to see it close to it blowing up. This is refreshing and being a comic book laymen, I only know about superman from the movie with Christopher Reeves and then through various friends and boyfriends that love comic books, it was quite interesting to learn why Krypton is on its way to destruction. I will admit though, it definitely felt like foreshadowing on what is currently happening on the planet ( but I digress).

General Zod’s introduction shown that he made to be a warrior and the explanation that on Krypton, babies were manufactured ( Slight Matrix reference) but the babies had no choice of what they would become. Their DNA was already altered to what their jobs would be as an adult. Caleel was the first natural birth in a millenium and unfortunately it would happen as the world is basically coming to an end. Krypton’s knowledge and dna are contain in a half skull called the codec and literally every specimen of Krypton’s dna is imbued into baby Cal’s DNA.

So with back story in tow, you are now as viewer somewhat hip of what will occur in this new millenium. We all know the even though one person can understand something, people are inherently stupid. This is why Superman had to worry about for most of the movie. Even with the introduction of Lois Lane, she definitely did not play the damsel in distress role ( which honestly I was so so happy about). Instead, because she was a reporter and wrote about him, she ended up just being caught up in the fallout.

Zod and his cohorts get sent to the phantom zone but because Krypton was destroyed makes sense that they would be able to escape. Zod is on the hunt for this baby that escaped because he will be able to build Krypton back once he has it.

Once Zod shows up on the scene, Cal gives himself up to the US military and is handed over to Zod. This is where the problem begins. As we all know just because you surrender to someone does not mean they are not going to fully set their original plan into motion.

Now for costuming..Freaking amazing. Loved Superman’s costume though I still didn’t know once you don a costume, facial hair goes away ( that should work for any clothing )
Zod and his cohorts armor was another great feat in costuming. Futuristic metal and masks( though the masks did remind of engineer’s masks in Prometheus..ugh hate that movie)

told ya

As for the action sequences, they did drag a bit kinda like the sequences in the sequels to the Matrix. Super beings fighting and crashing through buildings and destroying everything in their path. Now I have heard people say all that destruction and no mention of how many casualties and the filmmakers are not being sensitive to how the world is today. WHAT!!!!!????? Um that is exactly how the world is today. No matter whether they showed bloody foreheads or actual dead, we already inferred that people have died. You cannot have that matter of destruction with already knowing that so … I am sorry. I am not being cold, it is just the honest truth. Even movies light hearted like the incredibles tell of how much destruction happens when heroes are around.

The fight sequences did take a bit long and the scene which people seem to have a problem with when Zod is threatening humans and Superman basically breaks his neck. One he did not want to do it and two the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few ( corny but honest) Everyone sees Superman is a boy scout but he killed this evil to protect many lives. How many people have killed evil to protect family and friends. Most are not bloodthirsty cold hearted killers. They are protecting those they love so to everyone having a problem with him killing Zod, suck that ish up. Hell, Optimus killed Megatron . I didn’t see that coming but I do not hate Optimus prime ( after all he isn’t real and he’s protecting people)

So for the Fanboys and Girls, I am sorry if I spoiled anything for you and ruined how you may feel about superman. This man of steel movie in my humble opinion is the superhero of these modern times.

Thoroughly enjoyable and great movie to get out of this unbearable heat. 😉

It’s in your nature to destroy yourselves

As I am sure most of you know  by now, the tragedy at the Boston Marathon. 3 explosions while the marathon was going on. 

So world or better yet, Humanity WHAT THE FUCK IS YOUR PROBLEM?!?!??!

1st, we have to deal with a petulant child in North Korea threatening the United States and now someone decides that during a marathon which I learned was in remembrance of what happened in Newtown is now marred with explosions and loss of life.

Will someone please take the time to explain what is going on? I know we are supposed to have  evil in the world. It is the only way the world can be balanced but why are we so eager for the world to burn?

Are we dissatisfied with the world not ending? Are we so bored with our existence that we feel the need to end everyone else’s???? I can no longer accept being crazy as a valid excuse for everything that happens today. People are entirely too calculating and know exactly what they are doing. We just know how to get around the system by pleading insanity. There seem to be so many that want to leave their evil mark .

 

This world has no reset button. 

The New World ORDER…. or at least in my mind..

Today I woke and of course turned on the television. I was channeling surfing when I landed on MTV. Now before anyone says anything, I will say it MTV NO LONGER PLAYS MUSIC ( it’s first mistake) but it was a show I actually enjoy called True Life. Today’s episode was ” I cannot please my parents”. Today’s they showed the lives of 2 different young men who lived in different parts of California. One lived in Beverly Hills with his Persian parents  and the other who lives with his Hispanic mother. I am telling you the ethnic background because this is how it was edited to the viewing public.  The young men each had dreams and goals they wished to accomplish. One wanted to publish his book about being Persian and the other wanted to become a DJ.

Both these young men lived with their parents which wasn’t the issue. The issue is that both sets of parents did not allow their children to live their dreams. I thought it was odd because both parents came to ” Land of Opportunity” which is supposed to be America and to an extent still is.

 

The Hispanic mom wanted her oldest to go to college. She raised 7 children by working in a bank and giving the best life she could. All of the other children have gone to college but the oldest got his girlfriend pregnant at 18 ( which was the same age his mom had him) and he does not have a steady job. He has a production company with his friend to produce music and he Dj’s occasionally. Occasionally being the operative word.  His grip was that his mother doesn’t understand his dream and his mom is basically telling him everyone has dreams but you have a family you need to take care of.  The reason why this young man pissed me off is because he is acting truly ignorant to how dire his situation is.  You are so busy wanting to fulfill your dream that you are not building marketable skills.  There are so many people who are working till their actual dream gets going. That is the adult thing to do and then the fact that he has a child, DUDE…… REALLY!!!?????!?!?! WTF . He reminded of an ex of mine who had dreams of becoming a big time fashion photographer and never wanted to work a day in his life and pretended like he wasn’t a father and did not have responsibilities.  And to top it off, his girlfriend, him and his child are all living in his mother’s house and he doesn’t have a car so his younger brother has to drive him around.   All he can think about is DJing and music.  Sorry Bro but you have bigger realities than you want to face.

 

The Persian man lives with his parents who have a very comfortable life and want to make sure his life has guaranteed comfort as well . His heart however is in writing and it seems to be in the satirical format. He has titled his book ” I used to be Persian”. This was a huge chagrin to his parents who almost died a small death from title to reading to the eventual book cover.  The issue that bothered me was his mom invading his privacy and calling his best friends to tell him no to publish the book.  Insane right?? I never understand why people never take the problem to the source. Talk to your son not his friends. They can’t control him as it seems as much as she can’t. What I appreciated about him though as that he stood by his convictions and moved out his parents house. He was afraid of being disowned but at the same time , he wanted to live his dream.

In this new millennium, most of us are drowning in debt ( educational or consumer). We cant find the jobs we need to in order to survive. We all have to be working no matter where we live.  But no matter what we still have to go after our dreams no matter how long it takes.  We are so inundated with celebrities and their big houses and such and we only know some stories about the struggles.

 

Life is a struggle. Not every we get will be easy. We have to work for it. The best thing is take the realities you face as what they are. You know you have bills and you know you have to live but if you want something bad enough , you will take the good with the bad till your dreams have manifested the way you want them too.

Protect and Serve… Yourself

I have noticed as of late that sometimes being strong is not so great. When you are your weakest moments, no one is around to help you because they think you are strong enough to get through it.

That double edge sword is a bitch. Reaching out to people is already a vulnerable position but to be shunned and not acknowledged hurts deeper than any cut that could ever be inflicted.

Basically people are telling you they don’t care and you are nothing to them. Now while that may not be the mentality, it is how it feels to the person being neglected.

What you can do in these situations are:

1) Take 5 deep breaths

2) Primal scream

3) Cry till your eyes are dry

4) Write down your thoughts

5) Find that one you trust and let them know.

When you are down, people will show that they care so move your focus from one person. Your network of caring people is probably bigger than the ones we always focus on . Open your eyes to your entire world.

Have a great day loves!!!Image
