Cuba.

Today was brutal lmao. In the sense that my family don’t play when it comes to being a tourist. Every time we touch down in new territory, it’s like all=in, balls to the wall, go HAM or go home. With … Continue reading

Moana.

0

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.

 

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.

Star Trek Beyond.

0

Yo, Star Trek Beyond was lit. Ha. Not but really, it was pretty entertaining. And idk shit about Star Trek. Literally nothing. I was super conflicted bc my bro came out of it saying it was BOMB, and then my hg said it was boring af, and she fell asleep. And to not go haha. But then my other hg loved it and said it was better than Star Wars haha. So I hit up my homeboy. Who was just saying he was gonna hit me up haha. We had a moment.

We hit the 6pm showing at The Grove. Fav spot <3. Packed per usual. I was happy cause I had to exchange some shit at Nordstrom, which was actually a huge struggle. I went to customer service and had to wait like 25 minutes to finally finish the transaction. They had to call the manager in charge to help me. I’m so annoying. I literally be trying to return something from years ago. It’s hard out here tho…

So we were a little late for the movie haha but literally didn’t miss anything. It’s 2 hours long and all action so you gucci if you’re late. We ended up just posting in the handicapped seats at the very bottom, so we were right front and center haha. The theater was def packed. People clapped in the end. That’s when you know it’s poppin haha.

Like I said, not a fan of any of the sci-fi shit and I liked it. So if you are a fan, you’ll prob really like it haha. It’s the third movie I believe? There’s two more before this. It got great ratings, like 85%.

Plot: Captain Kirk and the crew of the Enterprise encounter an alien warrior race when marooned on a distant planet after the destruction of their spaceship in this thrilling sequel directed by Fast & Furious director Justin Lin.

Hello Chris Pine haha. Hello Zoe Saldana. Hello Harold (from Harold and Kumar). Hello Spock. Lmao Spock is the only character I knew from Star Trek. I really didn’t follow the plot like at all. The movie is literally just action with jokes every 10 min. They were funny tho. I enjoyed it. Def found myself in my head for a good portion. But that’s normal for me.

DISTRACTED tho bc I got in a fight with my bro bro today and I’m so mad. Like I’m giving him the silent treatment haha. I’m literally so annoying. I annoy myself. But he pissed me off and I’m not letting it slide. I thought about blocking him but I wanna know how many times he hits me up lmao. I think that’s the story with everyone you consider blocking…

It’s way too hot in LA man. Literally way too hot. And I laid out at my girl’s pool today and didn’t even get tan. WTF. I’m so heated haha. Happy birthday to her tho.

Oh, after the movie, we went to say hi to my homie that works at Coach. He’s fucking hilarious and so was his co-worker/manager. Literally hilarious. We literally saw this one dude come in with a wad of cash trying to ask for a discount on a bag. And then he stormed out hella dramatic when she said no. There are crazy people in the world man. And I definitely question the source of that man’s income.

Got my girl tree on my way home. Then needed gas. Then needed to beat my roomie home. Still trynta get used to this tandem parking shit. It’s a buzzkill. Could be worse tho I guess. My homie actually gave me a little spiel on looking at the positive side of things tn. Much needed reminder.

Anyways……….. LIFE. I’m so mad at my brother haha. Someone text me something funny. Thanks.

TRACK OF THE DAY: I just love CB in this.

Finding Dory.

0.jpg

Just keep swimming…. just keep swimming <3. Finding Dory was everything. The hype is real. And I about died of cuteness. Disney and Pixar do not fail. I think what Finding Nemo was to our generation, is what Finding Dory is to the kids in this generation. Def a winner. It was adorable af, and I fucking cried lmao. I’m so soft, I can’t. Let me know if anyone else did haha.

I met my girls from work, they’re literally my fav. Shout out to them, they’re the sweetest. I feel bad, they tried to hit up YG’s Still Brazy pop up shop but it was closed. Which is super fucked bc the flier definitely says open til 9pm. I’d be so hot haha. But in all honesty, you can see everything from the outside lmao. Unless you’re really trynta get some 4 hunnid merch.

We hit up the 9:25pm showing at The Grove, my happy place. My hg’s bf actually just moved to LA, so that’s exciting. He’s dope. I don’t think he enjoyed the flick as much as us girls lmao. Females ftw. I was late af per usual, I just got out the shower and left with wet hair, per usual. It was in the big premiere theater, aka #1. That shit was legit crowded haha esp on a Monday night. There were some kids, but majority adults.

Off the bat, the short film BEFORE the movie had us dying. It was literally like 5 minutes long and showed birds on the beach. It was fucking adorable haha. If you aren’t familiar, every Pixar movie has a little short animated film beforehand. They’re always adorable.

You guys, Dory reminds me of me haha. Plot: The friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish reunites with her loved ones, and everyone learns a few things about the real meaning of family along the way.

Pretty sure it’s like a sequel to Finding Nemo, which I was telling my girl I remember absolutely about. Smh. 0. So Dory suffers from short-term memory loss, which I definitely feel I have. With that, comes some major ADD haha. So yeah, the film is basically her trying to find her parents. It really touched me. Especially not having a relationship with my parents and about to go on a 10-day cruise with them. #halp.

I just texted my bro I wanted to bring bud and he highly recommended not to. I usually check it in my luggage and it’s fine, but he’s all trippin cause it’s international. Whatever. If I get arrested, it was meant to be (joking).

Man, life is brazy. Been saying that all day haha. I’m seriously ODing on YG… but it’s the CD in my whip rn. Man, today was rough. Work’s been a little rough, and I had to go BACK to the iPhone repair shop cause my shit was still fucked. Lesson learned, always go to the Apple Store next time.

Today was unbelievably hot. But like… I honestly can’t handle the contrast between the heat outside and the FREEZING AC inside. Like, I am totally judged when I show up in a sweater and boots, but I get so cold inside haha. And the only time I’m outside is the walk to my car so, I’m golden haha.

I just want to take this moment to shit on LA Fitness one time haha. Sorry. But the one on La Cienega, no bueno. I snuck in, I know, smh, but yo. That smell, and that heat. Their AC was broken. Like HOW. I forced myself to stick it out through this Body Works Plus Abs class, but I dipped early. Even the instructor kept saying it was a sauna in there, and she proceeded to strip her shirt off lmao. LA fitness class instructors are mad entertaining. Pretty sure they’re all just retired and have nothing better to do haha.

I have so many errands to run tomorrow. Smh. And definitely need to fit in a massage.

Muahs.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Fire.

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.

 

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.

 

Snooooooze. Jk. I had fun with my boo. He’s the newest addition at my job and I adore him. Get ready though. I have so many random thoughts about this “scary” movie.

1

9:40 showing at The Grove. I got the Moviepass guys!!! Unlimited movies for 35 bucks a month. Snatch. There’s a 2 week trial too, y’ll should def hit that up. I honestly don’t know what took me so long. I coulda been rich by now. Oh well. Crimson Peak. I was over-prepared to be scared for this one. But it honestly wasn’t shit haha.

I said snooze bc it was long af. We were like…. okay. I mean, scary movies should never be longer than 1 hour 40 minutes imo. The first hour was mad slow. A lot of buildup. I honestly was scatter-brained and had no idea what was really going on. Good thing it didn’t matter much. The film is directed by Guillermo del Toro, who is known for his horror films. Okay the main white chick looked way too similar to Kate Hudson. I couldn’t handle it. Her name’s Mia Wasikowska btw.

The movie reminded me so much of Titanic. The costumes, particularly the extravagant dresses, and the era itself. But really, those dresses were insane. Is it necessary to have that big of ruffles on your sleeves? They were nice tho lmao. A+ for costumes/wardrobe. There’s an award for that right? Best costume?

Mia plays the daughter of a wealthy businessman, and is made out to be spoiled in the film. Honestly though… if you’re born into wealth, I feel like that label is hard to escape. Obviously you can be humble and generous and what not, but that way of life is all you know. #perspective. In the beginning, she is warned by her mother’s ghost to “beware of Crimson Peak.” Of course, where does she end up..

She’s a writer and writes a ghost story that is praised by many. That was actually one of the main points of the movie I got. Whether or not ghosts are real. It felt like we were pushed towards the thought that they are. Lmao at one point in the film, when Mia sees a crazy gory skeleton zombie / ghost / who knows what, I was like, I’d def kill myself at that point. No joke, her reactions to the creatures were so fucking calm. It pissed me off. Clearly ha.

Homeboy next to me literally predicated so much in the movie. I was like dang, you’re good haha. Jessica Chastain kills it tho. And by kills it, I mean she’s beautiful haha. The movie went from 0 to blood real quick. Fr. Red on the screen. Ummmm yeah. Halloween’s over. So maybe sit this one out haha.

I walked out of internship today literally freezing. This made me so sad. I’m literally not ready for winter. I’m not.

TRACK OF THE DAY: This track goes so hard. The lyircs and hook got me. Cyhi is dope. I think he almost got signed to Kanye’s G.O.O.D. label and there was some drama with that. I think.

CRIMSON PEAK.
