While it’s still in flight.
So i’m at that point where my Personal Business has had it’s fair share of Exposure. So i suppose It’s time to re-position the posture…
So after much soul searching, on the quick note: i will be following my original goals and reducing the custom orders i take on this year. Sure it’ll be a major decrease in income for me - but i am risking it all for personal power over my personal place in the artistic industry.
So i guess, in short, i’m throwing away the cheesy title of being clothing customizer - and pulling out the heavyweight title of *drumroll*
I wouldn’t say Starving though. I would say, moreso, Self Serving - I follow Salvador Dali’s business mind way too much to become self-inflictingly malnourished.
So this, ladies and gentlepenises, means that i will be totally exclusive to what i sell and to who. My knowledge has always been that real artists never sell/produce a piece twice unless they are at gunpoint. And in truth, that is how i’ve always been. But i guess peer pressure of making a stable amount a week has fcukd with my beliefs.
so i guess i’ma be the same as i ever was.
I will be totally select with custom orders, unless i find that it is:
- for charity.
- necessary for my growth as an artist.
The stuff i will be selling on-site will all be vintage, exclusive, one-off pieces that will all be original pieces done by myself. No outer, external influences. Just strictly “me-pieces”.
I will, however, replicate a few Series under SNKPRVW and will be coming out with quite a few exclusive sub-brand/collabo’s with other talented artists in the year 2010.
So getcho’ 2-D glasses on and keep watchin’ this space.
Or outer space.
whatever suits you.
keep it correct hombre’s.
i think i’ve got morning glory.
…So maybe i think that spending time with you with no real intention to get inside your pants, almost beats being labelled as your official male handbag.
And i’ma let you find a few imitation labels, but i’m the real f***n deal babe. Good things are believed to take it’s time.
Oh, you didn’t know?
Well, In that case - you do now.
I stay badass like James Dean. yaaah’msayin?
Over you, I’m never Over, Over you. There’s something about you…It’s just the way you move…The way you move me.” —John Mayer
I’m scared of being close to you.
uh huh. yeah, you.
When i’m an arms width apart, i’m ok. I’m a man. I’m the epitome of masculine. I’m in my own lane. I’m perfectly at one with myself.
When i’m near you, i shrivel into something smaller. And i somewhat become half of what i am…
maybe, just maybe, your other half.
So i’m askin’, YO!
Is it s’posed to be this hard?
Am i supposed to feel like i’m more desireable if i were on the other side of the tennis court playing a totally different game like….basketball perhaps?
I think it’s a viscious cycle of cat and mouse sometimes.
she’d like me to chase-her down like a chaser after 10 rounds of bourbon..
But problem is…
I’m not a chaser by nature - I major in finishing 1st place…..er.
And i’d like to “Blame it on the a-a-a-a-a-alcohol”. Because as borderline as this sounds - i think i’m love-drunk. Or at least today, i thought i was.
Past-tense is my goal.
To Save this Pre-tentious Soul.
And when i start the role,
i patch up all the ho(l)es.
So like, do i have to go all Dr. Seuss on everyone’s ass every now and then?
the answer is YES.
DAMMIT, I AM SO SCARED OF YOU.
this could actually be worse than sleeping in the dark.
and that’s a pretty major problem.
I think i might actually go and piss my pants now.
actually, no, i can’t do that because i’m wearing my favorite boxers.
So, forgive me for feeling this way, but i never knew that love was such a boundary.
Maybe i should just ignore the fact that you flirt back with me..
Because you actually quite confuse my genitals.
Then the confusion possibly leads to higher places…
like the heart.
So maybe i’ll just act like nothing ever happened. And be a total male for a while.
vote YES for ignorance of onegina.
Because Today, Babydoll..
i’m externally over you.
You ask me why you’re different..
i tell you all the same.
you capture me like photographs
imprinted in your brain.
you ask me why i bother..
i tell you just because.
if love is on the other side
burnt bridges i will cross.
you ask me why you’re worth it…
i answer obviously
the simple thought of you and me
is where i want to be.
you ask me why i love you…
regardless of these blows
a lifetime by your side i’ll be
and then you’ll truly know.
- dedicated to you, you know who you are xxx
Life is funny like that.
just sitting back and observing people come and go with a click of a finger.
It’s interesting how people change and you just sorta, linger.
watching what’s in front of you, effortlessly point out flaws of others..
what ever happened to calling them our sisters, brothers?
segregation is the reason our ego’s hover.
so why do you bother to exclude the others?
mothers, daughters, sons and fathers…
daughters, fathers, sons and mothers…
you need to wake up
don’t sleep on the kindness
that others might give you
due to uneccesary blindness.
life is funny like that…
and i see you’ll change
just like the seasons
and maybe i shouldn’t think of you strange
when fame will never take the blame.
life is funny like that…
‘cause it’s all the same.

I will be hitting up the city to do a collaboration with my good friend, and fellow dancer Melanie Hitchcock to the new Omarion track “I Get It In”. I am personally quite disappointed with O’s new album because of the fact that the b*tch uses autotune in most of it. Why autotune when you’ve got the vocals? It’s ok in small doses but don’t mean you gotta go to the mall sounding like that. y’aahmsayin?
So like, i’d rather his “21” album. Why, you ask? Because it has that lowkey, loungin’ out, in the mood, let’s have sex right now in this elevator kinda Neptunes sound. And if you ask ANYONE, to me, Pharrell holds down the black keys like no one else in this game at the current moment. I know many might oppose, but yep, Skateboard P does it for me. Ever since “Right here” by SWV. If you don’t know that the man has been there since SWV in the early 90’s then you’re not really a fan.
And i don’t even want this dude’s autograph, nor do i want to win a competition to chill with him. I just wanna sit there and creatively brainstorm stuff with the guy. Digg?
So a mate (Narayan Holden) and i are re-joining to form a music partnership under the name “The Voyager II”. Abbreviated as TVII. Sorta sounds like some nasty TMNT sequel gone Star Trek, but yo on the real? there is plenty of meaning lying inside that name for us two space cadets. Ain’t got to explain really. Until we get an interview on MTV for that shit, of course ;)
Suspense is the best revenge.
but for now, it’s open for intepretation.
Less than 30 minutes. To come up with an official name and 2 draft logos:
Speedier than that mouse dude named Gonzales.
So these are just draft concepts. Meetups will be done on the regular to keep us musically excercised. Not excorcised. Narayan & i being on the beats - Me being on the vocals/songwriting, and vice versa. We plan to do something totally indie. In no way, shape or form, anything you hear being turned into a ringtone……….ok, well maybe 1 or 2 tracks just to play it smart on the mainground tip :)
I am writing all this because i believe anything written down has a 90% chance of working out. And if you don’t believe me? Ask that guy over there…
yeah, that guy.
so off i go to start my productive adventure.
word to ya mutha, brutha.
