Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

Hi guys. Happy Sunday. Today I made a conscious decision to take care of myself, and canceled the 2 events I had for the evening. I wanted to see Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie with my brother, so that’s what … Continue reading

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.

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.

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.

TRACK OF THE DAY: He’s so dope.

Café Society.

Café Society. Had to make sure I copy and pasted that é lmao. Pause, I just realized my Flixster app was wrong about the length of the movie. Not okay haha. It was an hour 40 not an hour 25!! I swear, an hour 30 is… the marker sometimes. Not saying this movie was long at all, bc it was actually really good. Really enjoyable and pretty to look at. I was trippin over the picture of this movie. I feel like that’s not the right film term haha. Whatever camera they used, was amazing haha.

The movie takes place between New York and Los Angeles. My future home and current home, jk haha. Or am I. It takes place in the 80’s I think, but the cast in this movie is LIT. Indie films are always the way to go. Fr. They’re way better than the mainstream ones. I always determine they’re indie if they’re only playing at select theaters, aka Landmark on Pico.

One of my fav theaters, but I never go bc my they don’t accept the Moviepass haha. 9:35pm showing. There were prob like ten people in the theater. Went with my homie I haven’t seen in a minute so it was great to catch up. He hit me up and I suggested a movie of course haha. He lives in Culver so this was perf. I just realized the film was very much a love story lmao. I’ma ask him if he thought so too.

Anyways, IMDB plot: Set in the 1930s, a young Bronx native moves to Hollywood where he falls in love with the secretary of his powerful uncle, an agent to the stars. After returning to New York he is swept up in the vibrant world of high society nightclub life.

LMAO I said 80’s. Idk shit about the eras. Someone asked me before if I could choose any era, which one would I live in. I was like, uh…. none haha. Jesse Eisenberg plays the young lad from NY, who tries to go to LA to work for his uncle Steve Carell, who is a big timer in the entertainment industry. Like I said before, the picture was amazing. Every venue they shot looked sooooo bomb haha. One of them I recognized as the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood, but back then there were no swarm of tourists at any given moment.

The first scene was at a Hollywood Hills party. Goals af haha. Fr, so nice.

Kristen Stewart, who I used to hate, plays the girl they both fall in love with. It’s a trip man, the age difference. Steve is like daddy status. And yeah, I’ll stop there haha. Jesse is a really good actor, but his character was just so damn nerdy haha. Wonder how he is in real life… Kirsten played her role real well. She’s super talented too. I asked my homeboy if she was really crying in the scenes and he said yes. Damn haha. I could NOT cry on demand.

Anyways, I really enjoyed the film. Def is evidence of the crazy shit that happens in life. Like, literally haha. Also, they had a pretty funny depiction of a Jewish family in NY. My homie’s Jewish ahaha.

Okay, I’d like to take this moment to say my lip hurts like a bitch. I bit it hard af after my mouth was numb at the dentist bc I didn’t wait to eat…. and then I bit it again last night!!!! In the same exact spot, so any progress it made healing goes out the door lmao. Really tho, wish there was a magic serum I could put on it so it heal right away. Come on scientists, step up.

Case of the Mondays af today. I tried to nap and it was just too damn hot in my room. My best from home actually unintentionally motivated me to workout haha. I snuck into LA fitness again. I hate the gym lmao but I had a solid sesh. Listened to a bomb playlist and then Logic’s new mixtape Bobby Tarantino. I love his flow.

AND THEN, I was in a rush bc I had to shower and get to the movie, but my hg wanted bud so being the amazing kind soul that I am, I told her to meet me at Mecca. Since my go-to dispensary got raided, this has become the one. It’s super lit and stays open til 2am. Which is why I’m sad. I got banned lmao. Legit sad about it. The security guard goes “you’re not allowed here ever again.”

I legit just dropped off the bag at my girl’s Lyft. The dude was patrolling outside and we literally just spoke, but I was in such a rush I wasn’t even thinking. Right after I turned around he legit threw a tantrum, and went off about how I could get the shop shut down. It was mad awkward. I literally just ran away and he followed me to see the car I was in. I can’t show face there anymore. Le sigh.

I get it though. It’s a business. Like I get it. I was pissed at first but after some thought, I realize it’s totally my fault. Le sigh again.

Busy day tomorrow, starting with a dentist appointment. Tear. Also, I’ve recently become addicted to grapes. But I always eat too many and my stomach hurts.

WAIT I ALMOST FORGOT. Blake Lively is in the film. She is damn fire man haha.

K bye.
