I have 187 followers!

I doubt that’s a lot and I doubt that many of them are really interested in my blog, but it’s something. I just felt like this was the number to celebrate because it’s over one hundred and it’s such a common rap reference! Yay for police code for homicide being matched by my followers! Thanks again for following! Shoutout to my mutuals!

I realized I liked a bunch of tumblrs and that made me want to be a part of the community. I like the ability to maintain a level anonymity while expressing oneself. I’ve found that everyone’s polite in interacting with me on here and that only reinforces the original idea. As far as my blog’s content, I am just trying to give pieces of myself by displaying what I enjoy. I hope to make it more personal and consistent as time goes on. Thanks for the question!

Wiz Khalifa - In The Cut from Bill Paladino on Vimeo.

Wiz killed this mixtape. There was more than enough quality material for a debut. This song is my favorite because it’s so fun, but mainly because of the sample! Great instrumental, thanks to Cardo. It uses “Let Go” by Frou Frou. If you don’t love that song, I don’t want to know you. Again, I like it because it’s just Bill Paladino filming Wiz and his boys having a great time at a pool party.

SMOKE DZA - MARLEY AND ME from Creative Control on Vimeo.

This is probably the perfect collaboration packed with stoners. Smoke DZA, Devin the Dude, Curren$y, and Asher Roth all approach the song correctly while showcasing their individual styles. Coodie and Chike direct the video, I love it. Nipsey Hu$$le, Cory Gunz, Vashtie, and Dame Dash make cameos; which I thought was a nice touch.

Feel Free!

Ask me stuff, if you please. I may even answer it. I do believe stupid questions exist, but I’ll probably entertain more ideas than you’d think. I will also take requests, comments, and other thoughts into consideration. I’m not necessarily trying to coax anyone to go for it right now, I just wanted to encourage my followers. Also, thanks for following! I find it flattering that I have any followers at all, considering my lack of output on here.

Tumblr Issue

I dislike people who follow you only for a mutual follow. They irk me more than blogs that are fake, strictly for marketing, or even empty. They follow, hoping you’ll follow back, and unfollow when they realize you won’t reciprocate. What’s worse is that they will repeat this process, many times. In my experience it’s a lot of rappers. How about you focus on the SoundCloud, huh? If you’re going to tumblr, write some interesting shit or provide some dope visuals. I’m not good at this either, but at least I’m not that thirsty for a follow.

Curren$y - Daze of Thunder from Creative Control on Vimeo.

I could never stop listening to this. I like Curren$y’s take better than the original song. I really like Kanye’s use of sampling on the beat. I like the video because it’s just Curren$y doing something he would normally do. In this sense, it’s similar to the other video I posted. The rest of the mixtape is pretty decent, but Curren$y has much better projects, in my opinion.

Cooling Down

It’s been an eventful Summer. Maybe the Summer I’ve been waiting for. It was dominated by quality time with family and friends. I traveled and didn’t hate it. I went to South Carolina to see my parents. I spent the first and last months of it hanging with my boys as often as possible. I have a new home, and I’m actually making the best of it. I bitch and moan a lot, but it’s not that bad. Work is starting with a bunch of meetings. I’m enrolled in class, but school is still weeks away. I am excited to study again and have my limits tested by working as well. I’m sure training by giving therapy at a middle school will be interesting. Things are slowing up. I feel as if I’m cooling down only to get ready to overheat. I want to kill it this school year and thereafter. Wish me well, as I wish you.

Lucky

My aunts’ dog just tried to eat me. I am not delusional, I am certain. He tried to eat my fingers and toes. My hyperhidrosis kicked in, probably making my hands and feet salty from the sweat. At first, I thought he was trying to be cute; then he started nibbling, even biting. I’d flick my wrists and ankles to get him away from me, which made him mad. His aggression made me defensive, so I stomped a bit to scare him. The dog tried to eat me and now I want to eat him. Damn poodle-mix bastard! This little episode sums up the dog’s and my mutual hatred toward one another. Fortunately, Lucky usually avoids me.

Californication is on NetFlix!

It is one of my favorite shows ever and I just have to post about this because I love it so. I knew this would happen, but I was surprised at how soon. It’s not the sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll I like so much as the balance of comedy and drama. I never really stopped rooting for Hank Moody once I started watching it. While it is far from ideal, I wouldn’t mind going through a life like that of Hank Moody. The series is also far from perfect, if you really want to be objective, but so is most of the art and media that really resonates with me. I would recommend checking it out to anyone.
