Phoenix Forgotten.

Hey guys. It’s been a long while. My life has been a rollercoaster, with more lows than I’d like. In all honesty, I just want to get to a state of peace. I want to have peace of mind. I … Continue reading

Why Him?

Omg. This was the funniest movie I’ve seen in a long time. Honestly. Truly. The ratings don’t do it any justice. It got a 41% and a 63% percent. Nah. I’d give it over 75%. No joke, me and my bro … Continue reading

Moana.

Moana! I kept butchering the name. Literally calling it “Mona” lmao. I really honestly still can’t get it right. My homegirl who’s Hawaiian was like wtf Shirley. I love it haha. Seeing this movie with her was everything. I encourage all Hawaiians to go haha as well as all Disney lovers. Nothing hits the spot like Disney does. They are the shit.

I have successfully watched 4 movies in 4 days, every day I was home. Go me. Lmao. Luckily, the total would have been the price of 2 movies in LA. So def justifying it that way. The hype for this film was real, and it’s a cartoon! Like what haha. We were scoping out tickets for Century Cinema 16, which is the super luxurious theater in Mountain View with reclining theaters. Like literally, so comfortable, I had to shut my eyes for a sec…. and those 3D shades…

We had to get seats for the 12:35pm 3D showing the day prior, almost certain it would have been sold out if we waited. That’s nuts. All the times after that were pretty much all gone. Matinee ftw tho. My bro’s roomie was raving about how amazing 3D was, so I’m glad it happened. Shout out to the homies we rolled with! They are the shit ❤ I love my bay friends. So chill and down for the cause, always.

Plot: In Ancient Polynesia, when a terrible curse incurred by Maui reaches an impetuous Chieftain’s daughter’s island, she answers the Ocean’s call to seek out the demigod to set things right.

You know plots don’t matter for Disney movies though haha. They’re just a grand ole time. This movie reminded me a lot of Frozen, especially with the musical vibes. The song in the movie could definitely me the next “Let It Go.” That or Pocahontas haha. The girl in it is beautiful.

To start off, the short film in the beginning of all these movies are always to die for. So adorable. I love them. They are completely irrelevant to the main movie, which I’m sure confuses a lot of people, as it did me my first time. Man, these seats were way too comfy haha and I was in a hoodie and sweats so I was legit about to snooze. Homeboy next to me did for sure. And homeboy next to him was seeing this for the second time. I love it.

One of the highlights of the movie was my girl’s girl’s son coming to sit in between us. He’s 3. Literally, adorable. It made me want a kid haha I never ever want kids. He was eating popcorn and one piece fit inside his whole palm. Gush. I kept wondering if they knew what was happening in the movie. I don’t think they do haha. The visuals were actually scary at times. Like if I was a kid, I’d be like whoa.

Got out of the movie and it was raining. I hate rain. But I love it at the same time. Maybe I just hate driving in it haha. It’s scary in the minivan.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Dom Kennedy & Hit-Boy ayyyyy. Hate the video, love the track. Dom for life.

 

Bad Santa 2.

bad-santa-2-trailer

Yooooooo. This movie was fucking ridiculous lmao. Like, what. The prime example of no fucking filter. Bad Santa 2 at Century 20 Oakridge at 5:25pm. MATINEE FTW. Tickets were only 10 bucks. I needed this though haha. Wanted something funny and mindless today and this was perf.

Finally got to hang out with my best frannnnn. At his crib rn watching the Warriors kill the Lakers. You know. I literally force him to watch movies when I come home lmao. He loves me. Last time we saw Sausage Party, and this was very similar lmao.

IMDB plot: Fueled by cheap whiskey, greed and hatred, Willie teams up once again with his angry little sidekick, Marcus, to knock off a Chicago charity on Christmas Eve.

I’m pretty sure I saw the first one, but don’t remember shit. You don’t need to see it though. This shit was wild haha. So explicit. It was only an hour and a half. But it really got us in the mood for Christmas. I CAN’T WAIT FOR CHRISTMAS. Such good vibes always haha. An excuse to literally cuddle and kick back.

I have to vent right quick. I honestly have no fucking time for anyone who hits me with bullshit. Especially people I actually talk to and consider a homie. Like literally nothing pisses me off more, than bullshit. Advice to everyone. Cut the bullshit. If someone doesn’t deserve your time, let them go. Literally feels so much better.

K BYE. MUAH. GO DUBS.

TRACK OF THE DAY: THIS NEW YG MIXTAPE SLAPS. This single was released.

Arrival.

img_4977

Whoa. This movie was interesting. V interesting. And weird haha. First of all, HI. OMG. I haven’t seen a movie in so fucking long. Which means I haven’t been on here in so fucking long. Hi.

I was so looking forward to coming home and turning the fuck down, I can’t even tell you. My life has been brazy but no complaints. LA got me so stressed out. I almost didn’t come home too. So fucking glad I decided to. I wanted to hang with my brother even though we live by each other now haha. He just got a girl and doesn’t have time for me anymore. Tear.

Anyways. Almost missed my flight again this morning. Surprise surprise. My alarm fucking did not go off and it was my first time flying out of Burbank. IT’S SO CHILL. Fuck LAX, never going there again lmao. I took the 7am flight cause it was the only one I could afford. Of course, Southwest decided to sit on the runway for a hot 30 minutes before taking off. Sick.

I felt sick from not sleeping. But I had a bunch of errands to do when I got back so that kept me busy. Naps save lives guys. I was laughing because the only American food in my household was Cheeto puffs. Here for it.

My bro kept wanting to see the movie Arrival. I had been so busy, I don’t even know what movies are out anymore. I used to know them like the back of my hand. But it got like 90% so you know I’m widit. I was so fucking excited to be in sweats lmao. I actually went to my homegirl’s crib before but decided to go home to change into even better sweats before the movie lmao. Reckless.

10:20pm at AMC 16 Cupertino. Yassss I’m home. Also yas, 12 dollar movie tickets. Ftw. LA is ridiculous. I swear they’re gonna reach $20 soon., I was in a hoodie, sweatpants, and Uggs, and still freezing. Thermal underneath too. Hello Bay Area.

We walked in right as the movie started. Woot. And mama had Costco tickets so no money spent tonight. Halla. I literally saw my friend’s status calling it the movie of the year so I low key was expecting the best of the best. But was very disappointed lmao. Womp womp. Jk, not VERY. It was just hella slow. For someone like me who lives in the fast fucking lane of life, it was way too slow. The story was great, the plot was great, the cast, everything was dope. I just got bored and started fidgeting. 2 hour movie, ftl (for the loss).

Plot via Rotten Tomatoes: When mysterious spacecraft touch down across the globe, an elite team–lead by expert linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams)–are brought together to investigate. As mankind teeters on the verge of global war, Banks and the team race against time for answers–and to find them, she will take a chance that could threaten her life, and quite possibly humanity.

Amy Adams is the main character and she slays. She’s the chick from Superman. Forest Whitaker and Jeremy Renner were in it as well. I would say it’s an alien movie, or sci-fi, if you will. My bro felt bad and said we shoulda seen Moonlight because he could tell I was dying haha but it was honestly cool. Definitely interesting if you’re in a chill, think about life type mood lmao.

People clapped at the end, a good amount. Maybe being cold affected my patience too ha.

One line stuck out to me though: If you could see your life from start to finish, would you change it? DEEEEEP.

Happy Turkey Day guys! Be thankful, eat up, and be with your loved ones <3.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Saw bae last night. She’s legit so fucking good man. If you guys aren’t familiar with AlunaGeorge, she’s this pop singer from London, with a blend of EDM. She’s so talented.

The Magnificent 7.

img_3505

Holy hell. This movie was a trip haha. The Magnificent 7 at AMC Century City 15 at 9:30pm. I literally landed at LAX tn and was like “I’m bored” lmao. Texted my people. Shout out to my homegirl and homeboy for coming through. We all really enjoyed it. And that’s my homegirl’s beautiful nails in the pic above haha. Free poster ftw.

This movie stars Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke, and Chris Patt. You guys, Denzel is GOAT. Like literally, he’s so bomb haha. One of the best actors alive for sure. I was trying to tell my friend and he goes really? Yes. He is the definition of lit.

So I guess this movie is a remake of the original. To put it simply (via IMDB): Seven gun men in the old west gradually come together to help a poor village against savage thieves.

Literally, this had Django written all over it. We kept getting confused cause I thought it was a sequel or some shit. It’s basically 2 hours and 12 minutes of dopeness. The action gets real good at the end. I was kinda worried cause my homeboy def goes “I wanna get a gun.” Please don’t lmao. This movie def made me wanna hit the gun range though.

Idk if I told you guys, but my Moviepass got cancelled. I’m so sad. What else… there has been a fucking lot going on in my life. I just got back from being in a wedding which was so unbelievably surreal. I literally cried throughout the entire ceremony. My girl is literally so beautiful inside and out and she found her match. I can’t.

I guess I came back to a heat wave in LA. Everyone has been complaining. I have no AC guys. Don’t even haha.

This shit brazy.

TRACK OF THE DAY: This song is good for the soul.

Don’t Breathe.

I’m actually on the verge of tears rn haha. My laptop is broken. My mouse pad is all types of fucked up and it won’t read my hand touch. I legit just tried to get it to work for like 30 min. Just sitting there hoping it would miraculously heal itself. Unfortunately, not sure technology works that way :(. Man I’m so sad rn haha. Can’t afford a new comp man. That’s like straight up rent money right there.

o2sbbEoKa (1)

ANWYAYS. Let’s talk about this FUCKING crazy movie. Don’t Breathe. If you’re wondering how I’m writing this, I’m on the comp back home. YAS I’m in the bay. And yes I hate PC’s haha. I legit feel off rn. Another reason I don’t want a new Mac is cause there are no more CD drives on the new models. I need to make my mixes for the whip man. First world problems.

First off, I can’t talk about my night, because it was way too personal. It was probably one of the biggest reality checks I’ve had in a minute though. The truth can really hurt.  I shared with one of my hgs, and it didn’t feel too great. Like it’s something I’m very not proud of. Sigh.

Anyways, I was legit on a high after this movie haha. Shout out to my bay homeboy for rocking with me tonight. He brought his little sis who I fell in love with. I love family outings haha. It made me really miss my bro, who’s turning up in Chicago rn. His life man. Works hard, plays hard. That’s the motto.

I barely got back in town but I had to make the 10:25pm showing at Century Cinemas 16 on Shoreline in Mountain View. These theaters have been around forever but they recently remodeled and added reclining seats and a bar. Literally so lit up in there. I could barely find parking, and my big ass minivan don’t fit in most spots. SMH. I legit squeeze lmao. People prob hate me.

So, I thought all theaters in the bay were open seating. Not these ones. Shout out to tickets only being $13.25 though. Yo, tell me why my seat was broken. I was all super lit being on this super comfy leather couch, but then my seat wouldn’t recline. I wanted my money back. Jk. Kinda.

Okay so I purposely didn’t watch the trailer for this ha. All I know is that it scared off a lot of people. Super lit though, Cozz, the Dreamville rapper, does the theme song for it. It made me want to see the film more, obviously. It got 86%, super well deserved. I actually was expecting a horror movie with like zombies and shit but na haha. This was some real life ish.

Plot from Rotten Tomatoes: A trio of reckless thieves breaks into the house of a wealthy blind man, thinking they’ll get away with the perfect heist. They’re wrong.

I guess I coulda told you that haha. Premuch these kids break into a blind man’s house, and shit goes haywire. Like, do not underestimate a blind man. I always heard if you’re missing a sense, you make up for it in the other 4 sense. V interesting.

This movie was just bomb throughout. Hella action and hella plot twists. It’s about an hour and a half, perfect length for a scary movie. We really enjoyed it. Like we were talking about it all the way to our cars on the way out lmao. I’d def recommend it. It was well thought out, and not just another cheesy horror movie. There were some parts I jumped at, but that wasn’t even the point.

I’m excited to be home but my life is literally the hottest mess it’s been. I need to figure it out.

Question though, what is happiness? Is it subjective?

Thank goodness for movies.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Here ya go.

Young Dolph.

IMG_2239

It’s Dolphhhhhh! Okay this is gonna be hella quick cause I have hella shit to do haha. Young Dolph is one of my favorite ignant rappers lmao. Legit just fuck with his turn up/get money mentality. Dang I just saw he had over a million followers on IG, like did homeboy make it? He really living that lifestyle he rapping about lmao.

I thought he was more slept on. Most of you might know him from Cut It with OT Genasis, but he’s his own amazing self haha. I actually forgot who put me on… it’s always one of my homies that gets me stuck on an artist haha. I called him the King Of Memphis one time and my editor goes, is that self-titled? Lmao hater af. I guess Yo Gotti is the OG, but Dolph the new wave.

He legit has tracks like Get Paid and Its Going Down that I could blast in the whip ANY DAY and just be so turnt. Get Paid would get me through the work day when I hated my job ha. Sad. That’s that turn up though. Work out to Dolph and you golden.

I low key came back from the bay for this shit lmao. Dolph’s the one artist I actually haven’t seen live. And I invited my homeboy I haven’t seen in a minute so I was excited to see him. This was the first time I got all access to go backstage and shit so I had to get my homeboy a wristband so we could both mob. Finessed.

Shout out to his publicist for copping me a Pink Dolphin tee! He had a pop-up shop on Fairfax today but I couldn’t make up bc I was mobbing back from the bay. She said he only made 100 shirts so I was honored haha. That’s honestly a collab that should have happened years ago tho ha. So genius.

I’m so fucking sad haha but it’s time to get back to real life. Not that I didn’t work yesterday, but just hella shit to handle in LA :(. My to-do list and appointments this week will be the death of me. I truly enjoyed my time in the bay and miss my friends a lot. Also was very lit the entire time. I legit stopped blazing in LA before I left. When you stop for a little, you low key forget about that shit.

Idk if it’s a good thing I’m back on haha but whatever. The ride back actually wasn’t bad at all. We just listened to dope music and got lit af haha. Legit, bay kids are automatic fam haha. So much in common. But seriously shout out to my homeboy for letting me ride back with him. Truly truly grateful.

Anyways. Who fucks with Young Dolph? Taking a poll lmao.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Litty.

Sausage Party.

0

Ridiculous lmao. Absolutely speechless. Like wtf just happened haha. I thought this was a kids movie. Soooooo wrong haha. I legit had to check the rating of this movie like 5 min in. Yup Rated R. The dude next to me who was seriously an older man seeing it solo dolo, shout out to him, I saw him reach in his pocket to check the rating too lmao like 10 min after me.

But I guess what do you expect from Seth Rogen. Homeboy is lit af haha, literally. It was a cartoon, so in my mind, how bad could it be. Man. This was like sooooo explicit haha like crossing the boundary into porn. JK. Not really. I’m just awkward when it comes to sex in public lmao. This shit was fucking sexual man.

And perverted. Yet somehow genius. Haha honestly it was super fucking creative and well-made. To me at least haha. So much attention to detail and the jokes were extremely clever. I hate to say I recommend it bc homie hated it lmao. It made me sad. I didn’t LOVE it. But thought it was very different and interesting. Entertaining to say the least.

The IMDB plot gave you nothing, so here’s Wiki: Life is good for all the food items that occupy the shelves at the local supermarket. Frank (Seth Rogen) the sausage, Brenda (Kristen Wiig) the hot dog bun, Teresa Taco and Sammy Bagel Jr. (Edward Norton) can’t wait to go home with a happy customer. Soon, their world comes crashing down as poor Frank learns the horrifying truth that he will eventually become a meal. After warning his pals about their similar fate, the panicked perishables devise a plan to escape from their human enemies.

It’s literally the from the perspective of all the groceries in the store lmao. The whole time, I was trying to understand the life message. I think it’s just, this world is a fucked up place haha. Which Seth actually says verbatim in the film.

Shouts out to my best fran for coming though haha. I missed him so much. We met up at AMC Mercado 20 in Santa Clara, which is old stomping grounds. Hella used to hit that plaza up for lunch during King’s Academy days. Now there’s a Krispy Kreme. It’s lit fam. We hit the 9:20pm showing. Smh I moved the time up for my hg who bailed haha. I had hella returns at the mall I had to do.

Valley Fair is so lit man. They got ping pong tables just chillin. Like WHAT haha. But they also changed so much shit I couldn’t find anything.

I only got to one store. Victoria’s Secret was legit the spot to be. Literally the line for the cash register was out the door. Tf. It went by fairly quick though. The cashier lady was giving me SO much shit for returning without a receipt. I was like bruh, what’s it to you? Anyways, that was the only spot I could hit bc I had to dip.

We got lit. It was lit. Which is why I’m sad he didn’t like it lmao. But I soooo get it. The movie was honestly ridiculous haha. So much sex man haha. Just prepare yourself if you’re gonna go. And def blaze it. I was supposed to see it with my bro bro so I’m glad I dodged that bullet lmao.

I worked all day and then went to my dad’s person for one of those painful Asian massages. I wouldn’t even call it a massage haha just pain. Felt so sick at one point from not sleeping. I haven’t pulled an all-nighter in so long. Was so much more stronger in HS haha getting weaker as I get older. HALP.

Life.

TRACK OF THE DAY: SremmLife 2 dropped. These boys are NUTS.

Russ.

IMG_2126

Wow. I was too upset last night to write this haha. Idk if you guys notice, I usually write my reviews the night of. But man, shit had me weak yday haha.

ANYWAYS. Living off no sleep. Well maybe an hour or two. I decided to last minute hitch a ride home for the weekend. Got an Uber around 4am to go to Porter Ranch to meet my homeboy who was driving. The plan was to dip at 7am. Shout out to him for accommodating me last minute. Me and my big ass suitcase :/. I fucked up. I had no other bags. That shit was empty too I just had no smaller luggage. SMH.

My Uber driver was dope we talked about Hip Hop the entire time haha. I’ve never gotten an Uber that late… it’s crazy they’re around the clock. But anywho. Porter Ranch is fucking nice. Like wow the houses were beautiful I was like DANG MY BAD. Literally him and his 2 homies were up chillin bc they got turnt haha. They just DJed in Little Tokyo so we were just blazing. All of a sudden his friend goes, “wait, let’s leave.” I was like YAS. I fucks with you lmao. I was so d to dip. Weed makes me awake af and there was no way I could crash at 5am.

So we hit the road. I really felt so bad my luggage barely fit in the whip. It was a tight squeeze fasho. They were so fucking nice though. Bay kids are legit the shit haha. And we listened to lit music the entire ride. At first the kid did NOT let me sleep. I was so sad haha. I brought my airplane neck pillow and everything like I was so ready to PTFO haha so sad.

Anyways it’s weird being home, but I fucking love it. Just posted working rn but I got a busy day ahead. I love Sunnyvale though man. Makes me smile. Trying really hard to be civil with my mama but it’s not that easy.

Okay back to last night. The day started off with a beautiful root canal. Cried like a little bitch, but at least the pain went away. I’ve been out of commission man. Some shit went down Wednesday night that had me super fucked up in my head mentally. I need yoga. Sigh but can’t sneak in here haha.

I missed our music meeting. But met up with my crew at The Melt on Sunset for a Khleo Thomas event. If you don’t know, it’s a grilled cheese spot. And Khleo is Zero from Holes who is now rapping haha. No lie though, the event turned SO ratchet. They rented out the pool in the back and bitches were twerking. I was down for the cause man haha. If you saw my Snaps, you knew. Hella people hopped in the pool too. I was like WHAT haha. Shit sounds mad uncomfortable after haha and during. It was getting nippy out.

Afterwards I convinced my girl to go see Russ at El Rey. He started out with his hit single What They Want. She was an instant fan. He’s cute too. My homeboy works for Columbia Records who Russ just signed to, and guaranteed and interview with him after. He’s been independent for years so that was interesting. Low key the only reason I was down was to get the exclusive. I fuck with Russ but I was so tired. And hungry. Vicious combo.

I brought my other hg for my plus one. She’s super dope and down with dope music. His set was kinda long. He played from like 10:15 to 11:45. His fan base is unreal though. I’m talking… one race lmao. Middle Eastern and Hispanic. Super sold out show though. So I’m sitting here super lit for this dude, only to be completely chewed out after.

Note, he sold out like every show on his tour. And wears the appropriate jersey for each city. Ew to the Lakers but super dope how he does that. He’s been rapping for like 11 years and has a DIY mentality. Also learned he was heartbroken tn and puts his feelings in his music. Drake status.

Earlier that day, my homie hit me and asked DX to unblock Russ on Twitter, which I thought was fucking weird. When my boss checked, he wasn’t. So I thought that was that. But nope. Afterward, he legit went OFF when we met up with him backstage. Saying FUCK HIPHOPDX, blase blase. I was in shock. I’ve never met an artist who hated the site, let alone, hated haha. He completely aligned me with them, which I didn’t appreciate. As if I had something to do with the past.

No homie, I had nothing to do with whatever encounter you had with DX. That’s over now can we move forward with the interview? Nope. He pulled up emails on his phone from us from last year and 2014. It was a little extra but he was fucking pissed. I took it a little personal but I’m over it now. Legit if an artist is gonna act petty like that, I feel bad for him. We are only here to help him out. He’s prob just so into himself he feels like he’s made it.

Sucks though. The show was lit. It was sad af. I said hi to Snow Tha Product who was chilling in the back, hellllla low key. She barely remembered me lmao so sad. I be like that with people though…

Wow life is crazy. Just wanna hide under a rock like Patrick from Spongebob. Straight up.

Hiding bye.
