Get Out.

Ahhhhh. Fuck. I finally met Uncle Snoop tonight. And it was beyond chill lmao. Everyone was taking photos with him and I legit just wanted to meet him, but eventually was next to him so long I figured why not lmao. We … Continue reading

Gold.

Damn Matthew McConaughey, damn. One of the first shots in the movie were of his beer belly lmao. He must have had to gain a certain amount of weight for this film. I respect actors/actresses so much for that shit. … Continue reading

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 Accountant.

0

My poor brother lmao. My poor fucking brother. I drive him literally insane. One day bro, I’ll pay you back. I promise. Anyways. We caught the 8pm showing of The Accountant at The Grove, late af. That might have been why I was so confused the entire movie. But yo, this movie was lit. It was really intense. I think every accountant out there should watch it, just cause. Like their boss should take the company as an outing haha.

Wiki: Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is a mathematics savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Using a small-town CPA office as a cover, he makes his living as a freelance accountant for dangerous criminal organizations. With a Treasury agent (J.K. Simmons) hot on his heels, Christian takes on a state-of-the-art robotics company as a legitimate client. As Wolff gets closer to the truth about a discrepancy that involves millions of dollars, the body count starts to rise.

So Ben Affleck kills it per usual. And Anna Kendrick in the movie was tripping me out. I’ve only seen her play funny roles, like bizarre comedy roles haha. So seeing her all serious in a movie was weird. Plus kept noticing how tiny she was. Like I wonder how she is in person lmao. Okay I’ll stop. She did good.

This movie caught my eye particularly bc I used to be a math major. Like… I fucking loved that shit. Algebra was so fun to me lmao. I’m so sad. I always say I feel like I had so much potential but then I discovered partying and that was the end of that. My brain is fried. In reality, I transferred to UCLA as a math major but that shit was way too hard. It was a joke. Not that philosophy was much easier, but my ego wasn’t shot from getting back 30%’s on the midterms. This was AFTER I studied my ass off.

Wow anyways. What they don’t tell you in the plot is that Ben is autistic. It’s a crazy aspect of the film but it was extremely eye-opening. No spoiler alert, pretty sure it’s in the trailer haha. Definitely a solid movie. A little over 2 hours. I’d recommend it. Again, esp for you accountants. And I feel like a lot of my friends are. They work the craziest longest hours. Mad respect.

Today was a fucking Monday if it ever was one. I couldn’t sleep til late (stan) so work was a definite struggle. Took a nap in my car on my lunch. Please tell me other people do that. I feel like the minority.

Went straight to the dentist for a checkup. Went to the doctor to pick up my scripts. Went to Core Power Yoga 2. That shit had me sweating profusely. So necessary though.

Then went home to get my laptop because I had to go to Verizon to get a new iPhone. I completely shattered my screen last night, which is starting to feel like a damn curse. I had a free upgrade (my bro’s line, again, ty) and literally drove all the way home so I could back up my shit at the store.

BUT IT WOULDN’T BACK UP. LITERALLY. Kept saying “turn off Find my iPhone” when it was off on all devices. Verizon told me I had to go to Apple cause they were stumped. So of course, The Grove, which is the busiest Genius Bar in all of LA, verbatim from one of their workers. The dude was nice and tried to help me, but couldn’t. Cool. I had to come back in the AM right when they open. As if I have time for this.

Sorry guys. My blog is literally for me to complain about my unnecessarily dramatic life. It’s like, drama with myself. Lmao.

And then I fucked up and didn’t tell my bro I was at The Grove so he drove all the way to the Beverly Center cause that’s where Verizon was. Smh. So sorry bro. You hate me.

The popcorn at the movies was stale. Goodbye.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Friend put me on this track last night. FEELS.

 

The Birth of a Nation.

0

Wow. I’m honestly completely speechless. This movie was extremely heavy and left me at a loss for words. I hadn’t heard much about it, but people told me it was a slave movie. That’s a topic I definitely showed interested in growing up in high school. I hated history too. Martin Luther King was always an idol to me.

This picture captures the emotion in this film. I’m gonna hit you with the Wiki plot bc IMDB’s is pointless:

Nat Turner is an enslaved Baptist preacher who lives on a Virginia plantation owned by Samuel Turner. With rumors of insurrection in the air, a cleric convinces Samuel that Nate should sermonize to other slaves, thereby quelling any notions of an uprising. As Nate witnesses the horrific treatment of his fellow man, he realizes that he can no longer just stand by and preach. On Aug. 21, 1831, Turner’s quest for justice and freedom leads to a violent and historic rebellion in Southampton County.
Sorry if that was long. I guess this was the remake of the original one. My homeboy said it literally showed maybe 10-15% of the whole story, which tripped me out. Everything that took place in this film was a lot to take in.
Bringing light into the situation… what happened to us before the movie was so bizarre. Literally think back and laugh. I was late coming from Westwood, so my homeboy bought his ticket. 7:15pm at Arclight Culver City (yup was just here). He said J10. Cool.
Met my hg and tell the cashier dude the movie time and he asked us to pick our seats, but we see J10 is empty. Odd. Didn’t think anything of it… probably should have.
We walk into theater 4 bc that’s what our tickets said. You guys. We literally walked into the end of the movie, like literally we watched the last 7 minutes of Birth of a Nation. He put us in the wrong fucking theater and somehow, someway, we managed to catch the ending. HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN?
Of course I complained and we got free passes but still, we saw the fucking ending haha. The cashier gave us tickets to the 8:15pm showing, which was in the same theater as the 6:15, so we walked in for the end. I was literally wondering why it was so crazy too. SMH. If there ever was an SMH, it would be here.
Anyways, we finally get in and meet my friend who I yelled at saying he was in the wrong theater. LMAO. Sorry boo. Literal hot mess.
The movie is 2 hours long and I honestly say, only go see it if you can handle it. I had to look away many times. One scene honestly broke my heart. It really did and it’ll probably repeat in my head every time I think of this movie. Definitely need to be thick-boned for this one. I cried for sure.
Also, going with 2 of my African American friends, I really realize how many black friends I do have. Some are REALLY into the Black Lives Matter movement, some don’t say a word (making me wonder if they care as much). I just wanted to say I respect each and every one of my friends, regardless of race. Everyone has their own experiences with racism.
It was EXTREMELY slow at work today. You guys don’t know how I bad I wanted Colombus Day off lmao. This holiday doesn’t apply to most of us though. Definitely had a lot of chocolate and slept in my car on my lunch. Happy Monday right?
Went to Core Power Yoga Sculpt in Westwood after. Thank you, as always. Then had a dental procedure for my tooth that was pulled. I guess this was an implant? Idk but it was painful. My mouth is STILL numb.
And I had to get antibiotics and I literally choked when I tried to take it while driving on my way to the movies. I thought I was gonna die. Those pills are too big.
And my cheap ass passed on the Motrin cause I didn’t wanna pay and I had Advil at home. My mouth literally started throbbing in the movie. I was in pain.
I’m a joke.
Bye.

TRACK OF THE DAY: My girl hates this song and I find it hilarious. I like it haha.

HARD SUMMER DAY 2.

 

IMG_1917

Shoulda named this post Ty Dolla $ign but you get it haha. I love Ty. He was my first on camera interview 4 or 5 years ago, and it was lit. I was stoked to say wsup to him today bc every other time he’s surrounded by mad bitches haha. Really though.

I always said, anything Ty touches is gold. Now I say that about Jeremih lmao but still. I watched Ty come up as an artist and he’s so incredibly talented. Salute to him bc I actually really truly fuck with him as an artist and a person. You know some people be tripping with their shit personalities. Ty’s a real one. And today was all him haha.

So, I can’t tell if the mish today was worse than yesterday lmao. We went earlier this time which was probably why it was so bad. Literally hot af again. Sweating in my ass cheeks on the ride down lmao. Sorry no filter here. AND they blocked off all the exits and shit, making everyone’s lives incredibly difficult. It took us so mf long to get to the media room again haha. Fuck Auto Speed Runway.

But no one had confirmed interviews today minus Ty. Desiigner’s team rejected me I was sad haha. Ty was throwing a listening event for his upcoming project Campaign, at the Jagermeister building in the middle of the festival. The flier said 5-6pm and when did he come? After 6pm lmao. We found out he was stuck in traffic but nah. BPT is real haha.

I had a good time catching up with my girl during the wait though. Shout out to her and for listening to my problems lmao. I went deep. I’m going through some shit. And doubting my faith :(. It’s been really hard and I’ve kept it inside this whole time. I really need to figure out my ish. Cause I’m confused…

ANYWAYS. When he did show up it was mad lit. The best part was Ty DJing! He was seriously DJing haha and he played Timmy Turner which I thought was hilarious. Shoutout to his manager for hooking it up with a Campaign shirt too haha you know I love free shit.

Also need to take a moment to rag on all the dumb hoes freaking out trynta take Snaps with Ty. Any artist really. I definitely fan girl, so I can’t talk. But when I’m observing and seeing people so fucking desparate to get a selfie, it’s rough. I literally cringe.

So homeboy (dude on my team who I’ve come to love, shout out to him for driving) was supposed to get an interview before Ty’s set at 7:35pm but that didn’t happen. But it worked out beautifully bc we got to go on stage for his set haha. Seriously he had EVERYBODY at Hard turnt. It was dope af and he seriously had a turnout.

Also got to people watch the entire crowd so that was fun ha. He brought out Joe Moses. I turned to the dude next to me and was like, what percent of the crowd do you think knows who Joe Moses is lmaoooo.

IMG_1931

Me and my girl had a moment with the sunset. Ha. The little things. And shoutout to homeboy who copped the interview with Ty after. He was turnt so I think he talked a lot more than he normally would have. Also, he looked literally crazy when he jumped in the crowd ha. His eyes (beautiful eyes) were so big. It was kinda scary.

So tired rn haha and got some shit to do. Overall dope weekend. I will never attend another festival though (unless I’m covering) haha literally can’t do it. Oh, saw someone carry a huge sign that said “Dear world, please bring ratchet back.” That was epic.

Muah.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Coming soon.

HARD SUMMER.

IMG_1906

Flosstradamus has changed my life in more ways than I can describe haha. Only a few people will understand. But yeah. They are a DJ duo from the Midwest, I would say the kings of trap. Minus RL Grime. Interviewing them was beautiful. They’re the most chill artists to speak with. Super real and just down to earth .

They better be because we pushed the biggest mish to get this lmao. Literally got the media pass for work, and they were the only reasons I pushed to Fontana. Hard Summer is always the move, but this year at Auto Club Speedway… is NOT the move. First off, it’s like the worst heat wave rn. And worse down there. Also been having really bad nightmares driving. Literally almost died again the other day and got real real sad. The reality that I’m a terrible drive just really set in man.

So my co-worker drove. Shout out to him. I filled his tank though ha. Shout out to me. Joking. I was just so happy I didn’t have to drive. Literally the ride down was brutal because no AC (which I was used to) and there were so many accidents. We left a little before 4pm and barely walked in around 6pm.

AND THEN. The worst part… the actual venue. Fuck that venue man haha. It’s HUGE. Massive. Normally for Nascar racing, which makes sense. But yeah, my homies were all there, super fucked up. My bf from home literally made me laugh SO HARD (lawl get it). I was asking if he was at Travis Scott because we had walked by his set (lit per usual), and he goes “Ya he’s on next.” I was like BRO. He’s on now. LMAO. I was crying. Shit was mad funny.

But yeah so…. I had to write this post to highlight the crazy feelings I got walking into this damn festival. Like I was the biggest hater EVER. Ask my team lmao. I was hating sooo hard on everyone when I used to be one of them. So nuts. Idk, maybe I was jealous of their fun, but I was just so turned off by the rave scene. Everyone on drugs made me not miss it but I do miss the priceless memories I’ve made with my friends. I miss that part a lot.

It took us I swear like 40 minutes to find the media room. And my point of contact for Floss was giving me attitude and I was like bro, I pushed 3 hours to get here, don’t play me rn. Fr I thought they were gonna bail and I was about to be a raging bitch haha. Which I fully embraced getting… Literally no worker knew where anything was. EVEN PARKING. Like no one knew where media could park. It was about the most frustrating thing ever. Hard, or whoever put on the event, please be more organized. Shit is not cool.

The venue was just so rough. Literally maneuvering around took 5x the amount of time as it should have. Stairs and going all the way around something when it would just be so easy if there was no gate present. Sigh. I’m so beat haha. Had a venti white mocha frap on the way and literally had to pee so tough. Not complaining though. We literally kicked it in the media room and just chatted. They have water and wifi haha. Eseentials. We caught some of Ice Cube’s set after, which was lit. Literally couldn’t see shit on stage though. Stan.

On my way out I stepped right into a huge pile of mud. I literally almost had a heart attack bc I thot it was shit haha. Literally was about to give up in that moment if it was…But yeah my foot was soaked. And I wore sandals. WOW. Wtf Shirls. Wtf. Shout out to my girl who sacrificed her water bottle so I could clean it off. Shit was dramatic haha.

OMG and then on our way home, we saw a fucking high speed police chase on the other side of the freeway. It was the first time I seen that shit IRL. It was so crazy and scary and my girl was actually caught in it. So fucking crazy I would have a panic attack haha. Wonder what the dude is running from… or if it’s gonna be on the news.

My insomnia sucks bc it affects my day. And it’s gone. Le sigh. Also doing laundry now and my sheets and hate this shit haha. I’m sad I couldn’t meet up with anyone today. Ran into one person I knew, where I had a brain fart how I knew him. Smh. I hate when that happens :(. Ran into my other girl who was “working” the event lmao. We out here.

Super reflective rn haha. The long drive had us in deep convo about some shit. Life is crazy guys. And shouldn’t be harder than it needs to be. Fr.

I miss my brother lmao. Muahs.

TRACK OF THE DAY: New track alert.

Snakehips.

IMG_0278

Snakehips <3. Their song with Tinashe called “All My Friends” is literally my life. Me and my soulmate bought tickets to this show when they went on sale haha. April seemed so damn far away then… we were both at very different points in our lives too haha. Def a lot more mature meow.

Thank God for set times. Snakehips tweeted they’d be on at 10:30pm earlier. It was at NOVO downtown, my fav venue… EXCEPT when they don’t let us on the floor. Weak af. It’s so much more lit on the floor, but they were at capacity or some shit. Balcony is always chill but the floor makes you feel like you’re more involved haha. After climbing like 5 flights of stairs, we finally arrive. We caught some of Waveracer’s set. He was chill. I accidently said Waverunner lmao. Forever butchering names.

Soulmate ran into her friend whom I knew. What was about to happen is legit one of the most hilarious things to ever happen on a concert night lmao. So legit we wanted to somehow sneak our way down… to the floor. My ambitious ass lead us past these ropes and into an elevator. Smh af haha. We got STUCK.

Legit it took us to the first floor and we were lit. But then you step outside and it’s literally a door to exit the building. Womp womp. Like straight up no other option. And then we tried to go back up and it wouldn’t let us. You needed a key. Fucking crazy. Lmao. It was either we stand in the elevator or we leave and the night is over. There’s no way they’d let us back in after we scanned our tickets.

We contemplated life there for a second lmao. At least I did. I was like wow, what a mf fail haha. Anyways. Shoutout the hg who hit up her homeboy who was ON THE FLOOR, and left and got security for us haha. When they finally got us up, they were PISSED. This bitch security guard was legit chewing us out. I just kissed her ass and kept saying sorry lmao. I wasn’t sorry.

PS, Prince was found dead in an elevator today. The irony.

Snakehips came on around 10:45. Super lit. Two dudes from… the UK? Dunno but I love their remixes. Love when they go trap on us too haha. I miss that grimey shit. We obediently watched from up top haha.

My day was okay. Can’t complain. My client stood me up again this morning. So over that ish haha. My supervisor let me out early tho. Thank God, I legit had nothing to do if I stayed. He def gets the hint haha. Ran to Lil Yachty’s mixtape. It was hard af. Esp when you don’t run anymore. Even with good music, it’s just so…. bleh. Mundane. Idk haha. It felt good after tho that’s for sure.

My hg took me to the most lit dispensary today. It’s called Mecca on Washington Blvd by La Cienega. Idk. It was just poppin. And such good deals. They were playing the Warriors game on a huge screen inside too. They were down 😦 and they ended up losing. By 1. Tear. It’s funny cause now it’s awkward when they lose. When it used to be the other way around haha. Af.

Anywaysssssss. Fell asleep before the show and legit didn’t think I could get up. I did tho. TROPHIES.


TRACK OF THE DAY: The Weeknd always.

Midnight Special.

0

Yoooooooo, Midnight Special was definitely special. Lmao. This movie got way high ratings and I have no idea why. Okay it wasn’t terrible, but it was pretty pointless. I think my hg influenced me too cause she fucking hated it. I felt bad lmao. When you go with a non-Moviepasser…. jk. But really I kinda feel bad haha.

We got lit af too haha. 8:20pm showing at The Grove. She had to return something at Nordstrom, which I did earlier haha literally 2 hours before. Then we hit Dylan’s Candy Bar for me of course. The movie was a lot longer than I thought it would be… like 2 hours. I swear I was ready for it to end like 10x haha.

Plot: The government and a group of religious extremists pursue a man (Michael Shannon) and his son (Jaeden Lieberher), a young boy who possesses special powers.

The fuck right. Fucking random as shit haha it legit had no point…. MAN I’M SO INFLUENCED BY MY HG THO haha. Kirsten Dunst was in it rocking grandma sweaters in each scene haha. The movie low key creeped me out too. There was def scary jumpy parts. I freak out easily haha.

Case of the Mondays fr. Met a client this morning at Echo Park Lake, then had my internship all day. Good news, me and my supervisor were civil today. Like joking around and shit. V interesting haha. Maybe cause the other intern was there. He also praised me for my contribution in our last staff meeting. I was in shock.

Slow day for sure. I went to Yogaworks in Weho at 4:30pm and barely sweat. I was so sad haha I wanted a workout. Since I was in the area, I decided to see if Crossroads had a wait to sell back clothes. They did… an hour. Fuck that haha I did the 24 hour dropoff. But then you can’t see them going through your ish haha. Sigh.

Stopped by The Grove. Went home showered. Went back to The Grove. We had fun tho. Needed to do something cause today was Monday af. April’s moving. I’m happy haha.

TRACK OF THE DAY: My hg from the bay texted me this today because she wanted to get midnight donuts with me <3. Sho cute.

Waka Flocka Flame.

IMG_6194

Yo. Waka Flocka Flame never disappoints. I’d seen him before at The Observatory in the OC and it was honestly the most lit show I’ve ever been to. He is seriously SO good live. He turns it the fuck up. Someone got stabbed at that show tho 😦 no chill.

So this was advertised as a $5 show. Came out to $15 with fees ugh haha. Went with one of my really good homegirls. She bought like 6 extra and brought all her homies. We were literally having a convo about hating the world and then it went to having a squad and reevaluating our inner circle lmao. So damn emo. Fr though, my friends have been making me mad reflective. Anyways.

I called yday for set times lmao. They said Waka is on at 10:45pm, and I asked if they’re usually on time. She goes, “those shows….prolly not.” Lmao. Great response. She was right though. Waka came on at like 11:30pm, played til like 1am I think. FUCK I got work in 5 hours fml. I actually took a nap for the first time in a long time today too. That prob doesn’t help me tn haha.

I had a headache when I woke up. I didn’t think I could make it out haha. But damn mind over matter. PS, did you guys know Waka was vegan? Lmao.

Mmmm. I met all those fucks downtown. So Club Nokia is now called NOVO? Sure haha. I parked in LA Live it was chill. The Clippers game had just got out and they beat the Knicks. Woo. Second fav team in the NBA haha I need to hit another game soon. Anyways. We were instructed to go upstairs. YAS. I hate the view from dstairs haha can’t see shit.

The balcony is so legit. You get the best view from above and you can sit if you’re lazy haha. We were in like the second row. Everyone was so damn turnt haha I loved it. Successful ass night. Waka put on, as always.

The crowd was so fucking random yo haha all white kids I swear. Waka is known for mosh pits at his show but this time they were so fucking weak lmao. It was embarrassing. The crowd was super lit tho. Waka loves to go EDM on us for a good chunk of time haha and he loves to go in the crowd. Legit dunno how he maneuvers his way from one end to the other.

What else. OG Maco was there. Didn’t know they were such good buddies haha. He dropped “U Guessed It” of course. DX actually covered him recently. He’s got some fire coming. I’m excited. Shoutout to DJ Whoo Kid. He was rocking this Pink Dolphin hoodie. Automatic turn on lmao.

Was so rough today. I actually passed out for 2 hours in between classes lmao when I woke up I couldn’t believe it. Our professor let us out a little early tho that was heavenly. It was POURING this afternoon. The drive back on the 10 was so brutal. Everyone was going so fucking slow. I couldn’t deal.

But fr can we pray I make it to work tomorrow please and thank you.

TRACK OF THE DAY: My fav turn up song ever.
