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

Nocturnal Animals.

nocturnal

Holy hell. This movie was intense. The entire 2 hours was seriously, so intense. I loved it. Nocturnal Animals at 7:50pm at The Grove. Shout out to my homegirl who was super d for this, and had to deal with my tardy ass. Forever taking into account how long previews are, and even then I’m still late lmao.

So The Grove during the holidays DURING THE WEEKDAYS is just as bad as the weekend. Was literally here Saturday and it was oddly more crowded tn. Like at one point during the walk from the car to the theater, I was stopped. Literally, traffic jam. Unreal. I would normally not mind if I wasn’t late to the movie.

I literally think Jake Gyllenhaal deserves an Oscar for this one haha. He’s SO good man. So talented, and hot. This movie got super high ratings (90%) so I was widit. IMDB plot: An art gallery owner is haunted by her ex-husband’s novel, a violent thriller she interprets as a veiled threat and a symbolic revenge tale.

Damn leave it to IMDB for literally condensing an entire film into one sentence. It does it no justice haha. Pretty much, the movie goes back and forth between fiction and real life. Amy Adams, who is also bae, reads her ex-husband’s novel, which the movie brings to life. This novel is NUTS.

It’s labeled a thriller, and Jake is the star. You’ll have to see for yourself. The first 30 minutes of the movie are literally so nuts. It had us in our seats freaking out over how absurd the situation was. It also made me wish to God that it would never happen to me. Straight up a nightmare.

We got shushed. We sat right in the middle of a packed theater. I hate getting shushed. Don’t shush me… ever. Okay I’m done haha this movie is mad dope, go see it!

Shout out to The Grove being open until 11pm, I was totally able to get some goodies for Christmas gifts. I’ve decided to do something different this year. Instead of getting gifts for EVERYBODY, I’m just taking care of the people I really care about. I’m also broke, so that’s fun. Who let me travel right before Xmas lmao.

I’m excited for the New Year. I’m going to do things different. For the better.

TRACK OF THE DAY: On that Stoney tip. Post Malone’s album in rotation.

War Dogs.

Whooooaaaaa guys. This movie was super lit. And the fact that it’s a true story makes it that much cooler. Shoutout to Jonah Hill for doing the damn thang. My bro goes “I thought he lost weight” lmao. Def not for this film. He killed it though, and I have to mention how beautiful his blue eyes are haha. Miles Teller is the other star who’s name I was trying to figure out the entire movie.

War Dogs at The Grove at 4:35pm with my bros. Shout out to them I love them so much!!! Fr we had a good ass Sunday today. It was great and sad it’s over haha. The theater was pretty packed but we found seats to the side. This was the big movie opening this weekend besides Kubo (OMG I almost said Kabu again). It got pretty good ratings, like 75% ish. I actually think it deserves higher.

Here’s the plot: Based on the true story of two young men, David Packouz and Efraim Diveroli, who won a $300 million contract from the Pentagon to arm America’s allies in Afghanistan.

Hmmm, dunno if that did it justice haha. It takes place in the 2000s in Miami, which made me hella miss Miami haha. I was like…. wait. Could I live there? So beautiful. Basically Jonah and Miles get involved in a gun smuggling business which lands them hella money. But of course: mo money, mo problems.

It’s really good. It’s 2 hours long so prepare for that. My second bro said it’s one of those movies that keep you engaged the entire time, like you have to keep watching. My lit ass fell asleep for a little lmao and I was like sad about it. Like I was sad I missed shit when I woke up haha. I cannot blaze during the day guys haha. I just can’t. Can’t hang.

If you’re into drug movies like Pablo Escobar type shit, I’d recommend this for sure. Before the movie, me and my bros tried to hit the Kanye West pop up shop in LA. Well me, and I dragged them haha. FAIL AF. We at first drove by it because I had this grand idea of cutting the line, but then I legit felt bad bc kids were waiting for like 2 hours haha. 2 hours standing in the heat haha. I think I wanted to get in more for the challenge than the actual shop. Smh.

But yeah the lady at the front said there’s no media or press so I just walked away with my head down low lmao. But then! We saw a dope Kanye mural on the corner of Fairfax and Melrose, and it was right next to a gas station and I needed gas. Perf. It turns out this was an art gallery. The minute I walked in I saw Bape clothing on a rack and was like, I’m home lmao. It’s called Dom Gallery in case any of you guys want to check it out. Real small but super dope.

Before the movie I made a dispensary stop which turned into me buying a new piece. Which I haven’t done in sooooo long. This pipe only cost 12 bucks though and I seriously needed one bc I CAN’T ROLL FOR SHIT. But this means I’m gonna smoking a lot more smh. It’ll be at my side whenever I need haha.

Anyways. We were on a good one haha. And then we got a foot massage after at Wilshire Spa on the way home. Mine sucked this time haha I was so mad at my dude. He was so slow and took forever in between the transitions. I legit wanted to be like you’re wasting my money bro haha but I controlled myself. Ummm, what else.

I had my bro’s friend try to untangle my necklaces lmao sooo sad. He couldn’t haha. I think I’ma just throw them away haha. If you’re new, I spent a good portion of last night complaining about these hanger of necklaces that got tangled during my move, and then an hour wasted untangling them. There’s 3 left and it’s legit impossible and hurts my soul. I should just toss them. Yeah.

This week… is gonna suck. Ha. Meep. I’m future trippin. Tough.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Throwback. I fucking love this song.

Kubo and the Two Strings.

0

You guys. I’m so fucking irritated rn. Like I’m gonna cry haha. Dramatic, but I’m serious. So I haven’t fully moved in. Yes since July smh. But it’s legit just this last pile of jewelry that I’ve been meaning to go through to see if I can get rid of them. I legit don’t wear ANY of the jewelry I’ve hoarded throughout my 10 years of being a shopaholic. It’s so fucking sad. They’re nice too. And they’ve just collected dust the entire time.

But anyways. I legit spent an hour before the movie untangling these necklaces. They were all hanging on a hanger and the movers just fucking wrapped paper around it and taped it and threw it in the box. I guess what else are they gonna do but damn they fucked me over haha so frustrated. Not only did I waste an hour of my precious Saturday earlier, but now there are these 3 necklaces left that are SO fucking tangled that I can’t get. Like, not just one string necklaces too, multiple. Layers. I would legit pay someone to untangle these rn. No joke. I’m so sad haha.

ANYWAYSSSSSSS. Today was a fail lmao. I really cannot be smoking during the day unless I’m on vacation because I get NOTHING done. It was fun, but then you realize how much you failed and you’re just like damn haha. Like I was so on schedule with my laundry, and I went back to go switch it… come to find I never pressed start. WTF is that shit haha. Okay. Let’s talk about Kubo haha.

First of all, this movie got motherfucking 96% haha like WHAT. And it’s not even Disney. Idk what it is, but it’s lit haha. I was so mad cause my boss saw it with The Game and his daughter lmao like TFTI bro. Jk. Kinda. It was at my theater too haha AMC Century 15, which I hit tn.

I legit can’t get the name right lmao I have to keep referencing. Like I said Kabo earlier. Smh.

7pm showing. I thought it would be way crowded but it was like the opposite haha. The theater itself was actually crowded, but the movies not so much. We luckily copped three seats in the middle. I asked my two hgs to come. I love when my friends are d for movies haha <3. Shout out to them for coming.

Here’s the IMDB plot: A young boy named Kubo must locate a magical suit of armor worn by his late father in order to defeat a vengeful spirit from the past.

This is as simple as it gets bc that shit was HARD to understand. Fr, how do little kids follow this haha. Idk. I was also HELLA tired and distracted when I first sat down haha it hit me out of the blue. My hg actually turned to ask me a question and I had my eyes closed lmao I was like SHIT. But yeah, the story is a bit confusing. Also, just found out this was PG which is good bc there was def some violence haha. I was like there’s no way this is G.

Anyways. It was really cute haha and entertaining. Kubo is Asian too, shout out to my people lmao. It’s like an hour 40 minutes. Not bad at all. Idk. I don’t really see the appeal to little kids but my hg said they’re like a new generation haha and dif way of thinking. Makes sense. This goes back to my phobia of getting old haha. Speaking of…

Earlier today, we all hit our team member’s baby shower. I never know what to call him. I don’t like saying co-worker cause that’s too professional, team member just sounds off. Idk. Homie fits but I know him from work. Lmao who cares, moving on…

We were sitting at the table, my hg and her bf. My fav couple I love them haha. But yeah I straight up was going off about how I don’t want to live past 30 SMH haha. First of all, I pulled up dumb lit lmao. It was like at a church in Inglewood, and it was lit. Like decorations, party favors, food, setup, games, everything. I was like so in shock for some reason. It was my first baby shower and the reality of like grown up shit always trips me out. More than it should tbh.

Like my girl’s bridal party I recently hit was a trip. And then this. Too much. Honestly though, they’re so fucking cute haha. I’ve never met his fiance, and was super excited to. This dude (the baby’s father) is legit one of my fav people. Genuinely just so fucking lovable. I love those people man. So far from this, but I hope I can impact people in a positive way like this. It’s so great.

Guys I won the raffle! And I don’t win ANYTHING haha. It was a movie which I ended up giving away lmao bc I honestly would do nothing with it. Just excited I won something haha. I brought diapers to enter that damn raffle. It was so awkward copping them at the grocery store haha.

I’m so scattered rn haha but yeah anyways. I need to get my life together. Real. Talk.

Sorry for rambling. Muah.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Dom Kennedy dropped this last night and I about had a heart attack lmao. Love.

Vic Mensa.

IMG_2031

The perks of being social results in security letting you in VIP lmao. Real talk though haha. Shout out to them, me and my hg were able to post up away from the madness. Vic Mensa sold out show at The Roxy. Homeboy tore that shit down. He’s one of those artists that are worth it to see live. He definitely puts on for his fans.

I was sad bc he literally only played his new ish haha. But that’s not bad. His last EP There’s A Lot Going On was very heartfelt. And the song New Bae is bae haha. If you guys aren’t familiar, this is a rapper who really uses his voice and addresses all the terrible things going on in the world. He’s able to create really really good music while letting his feeling out. Idk, homeboy’s super talented. We were admiring how he can sing tn too.

We really wanted to hear Orange Soda though tear. He played 16 Shots twice tn. The crowd at that shit up. I mean, it does go hard. But he had The Roxy beyond lit. Crazy lights too, like an EDM show haha. I was blinded for a little bit. Man. Vic is a real one. He brought out Towkio and Raury, which was interesting haha. And Joey Purp opened for him, but I def missed his set. I know he’s dope though.

Vic’s set was so short! I was sad. He came on a little after 10 and played a little over an hour. Prob had to save his energy for the afterparty at OHM in Hollywood after. *eye roll* I was having this convo with my hg the other day, you will not find me at a club no more haha. Like I’m too old. Or a festival lmao. I feel bad. Tyler The Creator announced the lineup for his Camp Flog Gnaw Festival, which I’ve been the last 2 years. It’s honestly a great time. But I was so unmoved by it haha. Honestly just lazy man. Smh. My friends are stoked though.

What were we talking about lmao damn I get so damn distracted. Like legit will have 10 tabs up on my Google Chrome and forget what I started 5 tabs ago. Smh. Also my computer blows. Today it froze at the office and I almost had a panic attack haha. But really, it legit can’t keep up with how fast I work, or wanna work. Halp.

Okay so back to the show. Vic Mensa is signed to Roc Nation. And has a huge tattoo of the symbol on his neck. I legit think it’s so hot lmao. He also has a HUGE “save money” tattoo on his forearm, in the shape of a stamp. It’s amazing. Tn he wore this silk shirt… and had it unbuttoned. And then took it off. The shirt was sus though. I was like uhhhh.

So this one time…. apologies if I’ve told this story before. I saw him outside on Melrose when I was working at Joyrich. And I told him to come in. I wanted him to fuck with our shit, but he was NOT into it ha. So embarrassing. He looked around and then straight up left the other door lmao. I’ve interviewed him before too at a Roc Nation party, and he wasn’t into it. Sigh. At least he makes dope music. And cares about the world.

Not to talk shit, but he doesn’t look like someone fun to kick it with. What do I know though. He just seems mad serious at all times. Okay I’m done talking about him haha. Work was fun today. We had Mod Sun come through our music meeting. He just collabed with Dej Loah on a track and it’s seriously fire. It’s called We Do This Shit. A feel good turn up track for sure.

We then had TF come through, an LA rapper who was featured on ScHoolboy Q’s album. My hg’s boyfriend manages him. He’s def the definition of a street rapper. Just a raw flow. And yeah. That was dope but I was getting distracted. Felt like I had to get shit done and then my comp was dying. Fail.

I went to yoga for the first time in a minute and it was so great. Hot Power Fusion at Core Power is no joke guys. Yes, I’m probably sweating from the hot ass room and not my workout, but it works haha. And I always feel like I’m getting rid of all the bullshit from the day and… life. Anyone who struggles with anxiety or depression absolutely needs to go to yoga. It’s so mf healing.

Went home, showered, Uber pooled. No breaks. Ever. I didn’t want to park on Sunset tn haha. And #tandemparking. Pool is seriously so much cheaper tho. What a great invention fr. Salute to Uber on that one. Just don’t take it to the airport when you’re trynta catch a flight lmao. Learned my lesson the hard way… a good 3x.

The hype for Suicide Squad is too real. I heard it wasn’t as good as it shoulda been. We’ll see. FriYay tomorrow. Meep.

Should I renew my med card? Serious question…

TRACK OF THE DAY: <3.

Central Intelligence.

IMG_1233

I’ve said this a million times, but Kevin Hart is my spirit animal. Probably one of my fav comedians hands down. I literally love all his jokes and think he’s hilarious every time. Does anyone else? He’s just so great at what he does haha.

Central Intelligence featuring The Rock and Kevin Hart. Jk, I forget The Rock’s real name haha. Dwayne Johnson. So I’ve been learning to use Google better. I used to hate it (I know it makes no sense), but I just felt like it never produced the results I wanted. My bro bro says I need to be more competent in life. So I’m trying lmao.

We hit up the 2:20pm showing at Regal LA Live downtown. So my bro just moved to a new spot in Little Tokyo, and I’ve been meaning to check it out for weeks. Literally every time I map it, it’s 30 minute which is way too far haha. Today was the day. It was lit though. There’s a pool. It was hot as shit today. But I was out there for like 45 minutes. I miss being tan. I wanna be black haha.

We were late af. But we Uber-ed and it was hella convenient. I could never justify spending money on Uber but apparently the rest of the world doesn’t mind. Parking was a crazy bitch at his spot though. So Uber def comes in handy. The theater was PACKED. And we sat next to the most obnoxious lady known to mankind. She was legit so loud and like… laughing like a hyena. Idk man. She was with her pops too. Like how haha.

PS Happy Father’s Day to everyone. Currently halftime in game 7 of the NBA Finals. I love my brother’s computer. Huge ass monitor and actual keyboard. Sometimes I wish I had one, but that shit’s expensive. Wait the movie.

This shit was comedy. Plot: After he reunites with an old school pal through Facebook, a mild-mannered accountant is lured into the world of international espionage. Kevin Hart is the accountant, and Dwayne is the CIA dude. It’s literally mindless and just entertaining. The Rock was pretty funny too. Like they probably had so much fun on set filming. I woulda loved to be there haha. Me and my bro really enjoyed it. And it was better to be inside than outside haha.

Man I’ve been drinking this Chinese herbal tea like crazy. I hope it works haha. Before I mobbed here, I hit up the YG Still Brazy pop-up shop on Fairfax. Went with the hgs from SB. I love them. It was hella fun. I would def go check it out if you’re local. Legit look at this…

IMG_1215

Like how does YG think he can be president of the US lmao. Anyways. That album is all I’ve been listening too. It’s terrible. I was trying to hustle in the shop for free stickers. I failed lmao.


TRACK OF THE DAY: Theme for the weekend.

DRAKE PARTY.

Yo, it’s been a hell of a mf week. In the worst way possible haha. Idk, I hit a new low mayne. I was hiding from Saturday til now, so you know it’s real. I was sick again starting Saturday… then shit hit the fan when the week started. TWICE. I couldn’t handle it. If you’re close with me in life than you know the latter. But the first I didn’t tell a lotta people. Shit’s embarrassing. I completely shut down. Literally hid until tn and finally got out. It literally took a run for me to snap out of it. Endorphins ftw.

The run was through Beverly Hills, 90210. It was so glorious dude. Life goals. The houses are to die for. It cleared my head so much. And literally a million albums dropped today. I illegally dled Curren$y and Jeremih’s, and it broke my Mac lmao. NO JOKE. It gave it a virus. I laugh now but I was literally so upset earlier. ALSO. Making a Genius Bar apt for me takes a year bc I forget my Apple ID and password EVERY FUCKING TIME. I CANNOT.

Me and soulmate stepped out to this Drake ugly sweater party my friend invited me to. It was his friend’s friend’s friend’s bday lmao. It turned out to be this huge event in downtown LA at the Globe theater. Like… we pulled up and the line was seriously around the corner. Don’t hate me but I totally cut the damn thang. Legit pissed off a group of girls but fuck it. So worth it haha.

They tried to make us pay 20 dollar cover cause it was past 11pm. Um, no bitch. Finessed our way in real quick. The party was lit af. And by that I mean the music was poppppppin. Legit all my fav singles. And I heard they straight up played Drizzy for the first 2 hours. I love it. I loved the idea of this party. There were paper Drake heads floating around. Look I brought it home LMAO. Welcome to my room.

IMG_4813

I ran into a lotta my homies there surprisingly which was great. I love them all mayne. They were lit too. We all were. There was this dope photobooth there we were infatuated with. What else… the DJs were so dope haha. I loved it. They had a screen behind them too literally with Drake heads scrolling like a slot machine. So great.

Overall great night and so glad I snapped out of my funk. That shit is toxic.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Fireeeeeeeee.
