2011

Excited about 2011? I am, more or less. Things haven't turned out the way I expected, but that is the beauty of life's uncertainty.

SANTA'S SLAY

So as the Christmas season gets deeper and deeper, I've realized that many people like the holidays becasue of all the possible gifts that they might receive. How many people really are celebrating the birth of Christ?

YULETIDE

THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS IS APPROACHING AND THIS GRINCH IS IN FULL FORCE. STAY TUNED...

THE KIDS ARE NOT ALWAYS ALRIGHT

I know the title is a bit off my dear readers but maybe that is because I have been a bit "off" for the past couple weeks or so.

Show of hands all the people who get into a little state of depression on or around their birthday. Well, I do sometimes. And I really don't know the reason.

Going up in age comes with more responsibilities, and those add pressure from your personal goals and the expectancies that others have of you. "So when are you going to have kids?" is the inevitable question they ask of young women. Don't know they realize that getting pregnant is not even a quarter of the battle? The people who want you to have kids probably won't be there for you when you need a night out on the town to get rid of stress. But they'll show up to the birthday celebrations and still find time to critique your parenting abilities. TO HELL WITH THEM I SAY! Have your children on your own terms; however, if they happen to pop up before time, make the decision that is right for you and your partner only.

DO MORE

Some people just don't understand that doing things to the best of one's ability is different from being an overachiever. When did mediocrity become widely acceptable?

Following instrcutions isn't that hard... Or is it? We all make mistakes sometimes, after all we aren't programmed against them.

TIPS & TIDBITS

What can one do when they are desired by the fairer sex?: I'mm tell ya, just roll with the punches, laugh it off, don't get caught up in the hype, don't engage in faux lesbianism (if there is such a thing), or just ignore the advances.

How to handle Facebook gangsters?: Laugh at them and post stuff on their post that'll be sure to piss them off without being offensive. FB GANGSTERS ARE NOT COOL!

How can I get motivated?: Reading a poem a day keeps the demons away. Check this website for poetry in audio and text form www.poemhunter.com

I DRINK, THEREFORE I THINK

How necessary will it be to be able to travel back in time? I think most of us would only modify all the stuff we consider to be bad and allow the good ones to take place. But would modifying the bad alter the happening of the good? Sounds philosophical but I haven't read the Philosophy books that I own as yet, so all this wondering is coming from a random state of mind.

I would like to be similar to that famous author who sat on the beaches of Cuba sipping mojitos and just doing his thing but I am beginning to wonder if deep down I am afraid that I'll produce a masterpiece that will be part of the required semester reading in universities. Ambition much?

POSTWORTHY

Had to mention that Jigga Man is doing it big for the 2010. News outlets are reporting that a memoit that'll possibly be titled "Decoded" is slated to be released in November of this year. I hope so. Could it be in the same vane of the Wu Manual?

DRANK SOME HATERADE - AND IT WAS GOOD

DID YA MISS ME? I stayed away because I didn't wanna be the "Debbie Downer" of the blogosphere. I'm posting now because a disciple said said so. Here goes:

"The Insider" is a funny ass gossip show. WTF Niecey Nash is loud! And I love how dude is so straight-faced with his delivery.

I still don't get how Chelsea Clinton is newsworthy? She hasn't even done anything scandalous - hmmm, then again, we don't know that.

People should get their financial obligations in order and stop being selfish.

My relatives are the ones who are putting their personal ish on FB. Remind me not to piss any of them off. Crazy bastards!!

I think that Levi's dough from his Playgirl shoot is finished that's why he is trying to get back in with Bristol. Smart-ass move of the year... so far.

Andy Rooney's eyebrows are FIERCE!

STAGES AND THEN SOME

After finally getting the results for my exam I officially have my Bachelor's Degree in Journalism. It definitely feels good. So good, I want to get a new passport in which the profession will say - you guessed it, JOURNALIST :-) ***smiley face not included***

It has been such an eye-opening, interesting, magnificent and stressful experience spanned over four years. Who would of thought that it would have culminated into some of the best made friendships, amazing travel adventures, mindful and sometimes mindless booze soaked shenannigans that one could never have imagined.

"What's the next step?" they ask me. I reply "I'm taking it one day at a time and I will see where the wind blows me. There are more countries and cultures that I need to conquer dammit!"

Who's joining me for the ride?

WORLD CUP 2010... AND OTHER NEWS

I'm sure by now you have at least seen one World Cup match, if not, well you are missing out on the hype and the history that is World Cup 2010 in beautiful South Africa. I enjoyed the colourful inauguration entertainment. Shocker to see R. Kelly on the lineup! Who's idea was that?! WAKA WAKA!

I ended up randomly constructing a poem with a close friend of mine and neither of us wrote down the lines and we don't remember it. Sad thing is that it was a really great poem. The plan is to sit down again and do it all over again :-)

NO MORE GARRISONS IN JAMAICA?





Show me a selfless party leader and I will cast my vote.

By now most of you have heard or seen what has been happening in the Caribbean island of Jamaica. Is it a disaster incomparable to the earthquake that struck Haiti in January of this year? What I do know is that it is a catastrophe that was constructed over decades of politcal strongholds, greed, violence and mental slavery. Talk about the ignorance of a nation that has been upheld by those who have casted votes in elections throughout said time.

As a Jamaican I am free because I never voted nor am I a registered voter. "Why haven't you voted?", many have asked. I reply, "I can not vote for either political parties because I can not support a government who refuses to abolish garrison communities then make discourses against crime."

JUSTICE WILL BE SERVED!

THE PLEDGE

-I'll buy you chocolate covered raisins when I have to apologize for something

-I'll cook for you, and put my soul into it just because...

-I'll send you text messages whenever I think of you

-I'll respect and care for you

-You will occupy 80% of my daily thoughts

-You will be the love of my life

CLUB NIGHTS IS ONE OF THE REASONS I LOVE LIFE

I like going out clubbing; especially in the company of nice beautiful women who just love to cut a rug once in a while. It's even better when you add alcholic beverages to the mix and the token drunk girl who just gives you lots of laughter. How about the ones who end up speaking different languages when they are all liquored up? HAHAHAHA I LOOOOOOOOOVE IT!

WORKS IN PROGRESS

It is easier to reply to the email questions that you all have been asking me here, so that everyone can be aware of the upcoming and future projects that I am working on. These are in no particular order of importance.

1. Shop around screenplay for short film that I am co-writing with King Rey.

2. Advancing various literary works.

3. Create my own website.

4. Edit video footage of past events.

WHAT ABOUT JOURNALISTS?

Contributor: Renaldo "King Rey" Newry


Ellen Page is a cute girl but do we really care what she eats? I am not referring to how celebrity gossip has taken over Journalism, but why on earth do they think a celebrity's diet will change the way other people eat. Celebrities who are successful enough probably has personal chefs and nutritionists who cook for them so they don’t have to worry about grabbing some junk food on the go. The majority, or let's say 80% of headline news is what random garbage a celebrity did or a celebrity’s thoughts on an event. They aren’t even trained journalists who's opinion has any merit. For example, CBS will get the Kardashians to give their thoughts on another celeb's outfit. I can imagine how much they get paid to say some crap like "that does not work for her".

Do Americans suck and look to famous people for guidance? You be the judge.

DAMN U FARMVILLE

Farmville is addictive y'all!!! Anyone who is a member of the super famous social site Facebook has at least one contact in their list who uses the application Farmville. I dare you to prove otherwise.

Is it good or is it bad? Well, depends on how much time you spend playing it. Don't be idiotic, irresponsable douches like the couple who recently let their baby starve to death while they were glued to a game (google the news article).

ADDICTIVE PLAYER:
-You stay up all morning or all night rearranging you farm
-You get angry when you get the report "Game out of synch, click to refresh"
-If your crops wither it is the end of the world because you invested so much money planting them
-You use your real money to buy Farmville cash (believe me these people exist)


FUN PLAYER:
-You don't care if your crops wither
-Gaining extra coins, fuel, points are not necessary
-You don't have any neighbours
-You don't care about ribbons

DO'S & DON'TS

DO:
- Wash your hands before and after every meal.

- Cleanse yourself after a night, morning or day of passion before going into the kitchen.

- Brush your teeth after that long nap before you put food in your mouth (or at least do some rinsing out)

- Allow yourself to be celibate for a period of time when necessary

- Practice proper hygiene!

- Eat with your family whenever you can and don't let the hunger rule you (my dad taught me that)


DON'T:
- Talk to anyone while you are in the bathroom doing your bodily functions because it is a cleansing and private practice that should be regarded as sacred.

- (For women) Allow any and everyone to enter your body cavities just because you are horny. Treasure your body and personal space for crying out loud.

-Wait on someone else to keep you or your living space clean.

-Explain and tell everything, especially information about other people. Whatever happened to not disclosing personal and intimate information?


Note: YOU WON'T DEFINITELY DIE IF YOU DON'T FOLLOW THESE SUGGESTIONS, NEVERTHELESS TRY TO MAKE THESE PRACTICES A PART OF YOUR LIFE.

HAPPY 86TH GRAMS!



MY GRANDMA CINDERELLA IS CELEBRATING HER 86TH BIRTHDAY TODAY! SHE IS THE BEST. I LOVE HER WITH ALL MY HEART. HOPE SHE LIVES TO SEE MANY MANY MORE.


Spending Valentine's Day 2010 at Tepoztlan Carnival was fun. My friends and I danced with the chinelos, we drank beer, socialized and had some really delicious itacates. I even played Cupid and hooked up my buddy with a seemingly nice girl.
Hope you also had a fun day. Let's not forget that we should celebrate love and appreciation for each other daily.

Golden Globe Awards and Other Stuff

Yesterday I watched Sherlock Holmes and I was amazed at how brilliant every element of the movie is, ESPECIALLY THE DIRECTION, kudos to Guy Ritchie. Robert Downey Jr. definitely deserved the Golden Globe Award! Jude Law also did an amazing job.
Shocker though was that Gabourey Sidibe didn't win the category of Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama; mind you I still haven't seen the film "Precious" but just by watching clips and trailers I can tell that she deserves this award. Congratulations are in order for Mo'nique for her win in the category Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture.
OH YEAH "30 ROCK" RULES!!

2009 & BEYOND

2009 was a damn good year. I met the love of my life and reunited with a very special person.

Closed a certain stage of my life.

New business ventures are in the pipeline.


What will the 2010 bring?, will just have to wait and see.
