DISCLAIMER: Like I always say, I write to entertain, but my writing is also part of me. So take it for what it’s meant to be “ENTERTAINMENT” and “MY WORDS.” Oh and it is ART too. I ❤ the arts! Enjoy 😉

“I’d rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.” -Kurt Cobain

How raw of a quote is that?

I’ll be honest and admit that I’m not the best person in this world. Actually I’m probably close to the opposite of what we think is a “Good Person.” I’m not understanding. I’m far from compassionate. And most of all I’m hyper critical. All core values that would make me a good shock-jock on the radio, but leaves me at a distance from some of the people who count on me as a confidante/friend at times. I see it more and more as some people start to distance themselves from me, but why?

I’m actually a nice guy and relatively harmless, besides having a sharp tongue, but what sets me apart from the rest of the “animals” I flock with in society is my “moral” standing. I don’t believe in perpetrating lies while in pursuit of some false “greater good.” Why live a lie to save face or to not hurt someone’s feelings when at the end of the day the truth really can set you free?

I know a lot of people who live a lie or give into things they feel will end some type of “drama” in their lives, but really is that benefiting anyone?

See…  I look at society as three sets. 1) Those who are scared of what’s different. 2) Those who want to be different, but are scared of the people who are scared to be different and 3) The non-conformists.

I’m proud to be #3 because the differences in me is what makes me unique. I like to say this, “I don’t conform. I reform.” People don’t get that about me sometimes and it’s cool. I don’t expect you to understand me right away, but through my writing I hope you get an idea…

Which brings me to The Lies…

I told a friend this once… “Tell someone the truth and they don’t believe you, but if you lie to them… They adore…” It’s so true and sad. We like to be lied to. Someone who’s blunt and honest with you, usually isn’t atop your friends list on FaceBook or Myspace and in most cases you would harbor a deep resentment for someone who keep it “real” with you all the time. Which to me is wack.

The TRUTH hurts, LIES kill…

When you lie to someone, like “Daam Hugh, you look like you’ve lost weight…” Right… Shit like that makes it more comfortable for me to eat more and get fatter and you thought you were being nice. NURP! YOU’RE HELPING TO KILL ME!!!! THANK YOU!

But for real, it’s shit like that, that makes this world fucked up. Who is that benefiting? Bending the truth about someone’s faults doesn’t help them or you much. So I try to be objective and real with people. Someone like myself makes that guilty feeling in you rise up and makes you think. In some cases makes you cry (Yes… I’ve made people cry). The truth hurts and I bask in it. I’m so trill and it doesn’t bother me to be honest because lies only hurt you in the long run.

That’s part of the big reason people confide in me. I’m probably the worst person to confide in overall because to me a lot of the shit people think are “problems” are a joke, when there’s real fucked up shit in society we should be more concerned about. Relationships, he say/she say and pillow talk are not things that are earth shattering…

Don’t get it twisted, I reveal in emotion myself, but I’ve learned that my heart and my mind work separately and that’s what kind of sets me apart from a lot of people. I’m not compassionate to the human cause. It sounds fucked up, but that’s just the way it is. I’m not saying I don’t give to charity or help people. That’s my goal in life, to help people, but we’ve got to see past the signs for help and cut through the bullshit to see who truly needs that help. Basically dead the lies and be honest with yourselves is what I’m saying. Ask yourself, “is this life I lead the life I truly always wanted? Or do I want more or something different?” Is the weight of the world on me or am I selfish and feel my “issues” out weigh the bigger picture?

Strive for #CHANGE…

So what’s the truth about me:

– I’m an ego maniac…

– I’m obsessed with Nina Sky’s music, but not them in particular. They’re cool people I guess, but overall I’d rather listen to them sing than hang out with them…

– I’m emotional… SMH… (._.)

– I flip flop on bad habits in my life… Drinking/Smoking weed. I do them and then I don’t. Currently I don’t and I’m good.

– Women… I ❤ them. 🙂  I see myself settling down with one some day. 😉

– Friends… Love/Hate relationship with all of them, but oddly enough the ones that appreciate my knowledge stick around because I’m usually right about 99.9999%.

– Family… They adore me. Even though I’m the biggest asshole in the fam… I’ll never understand that shit.

–  I’m insecure about my weight… I lost a lot of weight and with that I shed some confidence. It’s suppose to be the opposite way around (I know), but the more I see myself taking on my brother from another mother’s form (Brad Pitt), I find myself less open, which is so weird… I used to be way more confident as the jolly fat man.

– God… I believe in him. He’s pretty awesome.

– Love… I love everything about this world, except Hipsters, Dane Cook & Lupe Fiasco…

– Being in Love… I can honestly say I was in love for a few months last year and the feeling was good even though it wasn’t meant to be. Before or after that, I don’t think I’ve ever really felt it “for real,” but knowing how that felt for real, for real finally… Shit… I think I like it and I’ll know when it’s real when ever it comes around again.

– Money… I got rich, went broke and I’m on my way to being rich again. On that same shit again and all I can do now is STUNT HARD!

–  I’m cocky… If all the bullets I wrote didn’t clue you into that by now, then you’re RETARDED.

– I’m passionate… I go hard… I don’t play by rules…

– I cry… Haven’t cried in a long ass time, but I can admit to having cried.

– Indian women… YEP! 🙂 White girls… Why not! 🙂 Hispanic girls… Sure! 🙂 Middle Eastern women… Depends on how much body hair & nose they have. 🙂  Slanty Eyed Asian/Black girls… meh. 😦

– I’m racist… Yeah….. But not towards religions, cultures and people, but the stereotypes that we put on them. I kind of call out people who live up to stereotypes society puts on them. WE’RE IN AMERICA PEOPLE!!!

– I’m very open with strangers, which makes me pretty strange I guess, but it also makes me honest too. I’d rather be real than _________ <=== you fill in the blank.

I can go on for days with this shit about “me,” but I hope you get it. In this world of a lot of hate, I’ve chosen to not hate anyone. I’ll talk my shit of course, but it doesn’t mean I don’t particular want you to coexist with me. It just means that I don’t care what anyone thinks about me. I make a stunning first impression on people. In that first 10mins of talking to me, you’ve pretty much decided where I fit in your life. From there, it’s really up to you if you appreciate it or think that you’re better off without me. Either way, I’m always gonna be good because at least you know I kept it real.

So… That’s me and if you’re reading this and decided you don’t like what you see… Look in the mirror and ask yourself if anyone has ever seen the real you and would they like what they see?

I saw this quote by Grace Hansen and it reminded me of “The Life.” I almost forgot I had one 😉

2010 is less than 48 hours away. What you gonna do?

Live the Life or just ‘live…’ Remember we’re born to live a life or die… Live a little nigga… IT’S A NEW YEAR 🙂

“My life is all I have/ My rhymes, my pen, my pad/ And I done made it through the struggle, don’t judge me/ What you say now, won’t budge me/ Cuz where I come from, so often/ People you grew up with, layin in a coffin/ But I done made it through the pain in spite/ It’s my time now, my world, my life/ My life…”

“When the power of love overcomes the love for power, the world will know peace…”Sri Chinmoy Ghose

I’m a strong believer in the power of love… Love is what drives the weak to step up. Love is what makes us act passionately. Love is what makes us happy, sad and feel high all at the same time. Loves is what leads our emotions and our hearts forward. Love was the downfall of many great men/women (So I’ve heard…). I heard that Love conquers all…

But why hasn’t ‘Love’ conquered all???

See what’s fucked up about our world today is that no one is really motivated by ‘Love’… It’s not necessarily about ‘Power’ either. It’s more about the need to just ‘get by’ doing whatever it is we do to get by and dying knowing we did something. When in reality we didn’t do shit, but be part of a machine that subsequently helped shorten our existence.

I basically want to die knowing I LOVED someone and I’ll gladly exit this show with no curtain call. I just want to have that feeling… The feeling my parents still have to this day. The feeling I see when a mother and father look into a new born baby’s eyes… The feeling of comfort and security in the arms of someone who loves me and I love them. That’s all…

The rest of this shit… Yeah I’m good at it, but it’s not going to complete me (Real Talk).

So I guess Ghose is right, ‘Love’ needs to overcome ‘Power’ before people can honestly see what it means and how it can really change the way we look at the world… I just hope that day comes in my lifetime.

Footnote: Sri Chinmoy Ghose is a native of Indian, but spent his final days New York City and resided in QUEENS 🙂 my hometown. <=== How Real Is That

bobby_funke“Nobody’s misunderstood… That’s just what people say when they don’t like who they are.” – Bobby Funke (Assassination of a High School President)

As I continually write and brainstorm over my screenplay, I’ve started to watch obscure mainstream movies for inspirational dialog and techniques. I came across this movie called Assassination of a High School President and fell in love with the way this kids carry themselves and the witty almost apathetic noir of the way this movie was shot. It’s like a dark comedy and is shot in the same way the last Batman movie was shot… Grainy and dark…

I was taken in by the main character Bobby Funke because he reminds me of myself sort of… Someone who is in search of answers, love and his big break… Bobby wants to be an investigative reporter, while I’m on my way to some sort of (sorry for the cliche) “MOGUL STATUS,” but the passion is there and the drive is there. The kid is intelligent, weird, obnoxious and motivated by his search for the truth.

speak_your_mind_by_whuffe1I’m giving him/the writers of this movie my quote of the day because people who say, “You don’t understand me…” “You’ll never get me…” “I’m misunderstood…” are using that as a defense mechanism when people finally get them… I used to think along those lines myself… Maybe because of the attention factor involved, but now it’s like I’m SCREAMING OUT LOUD and I think most of you understand every word I’m saying fucking say…

What’s ironic is that people who hide behind the mask of “misunderstanding” usually become the most cut and dry people we see in society… The people who wake up and go to work and live like the robots most of society is slowly becoming… I can’t be like that and I’ll never accept it.

The other bunch of people are those who scream out for attention on a daily basis. To fill some void in their lives. I was admittedly one of these people myself. I’d justify the shit I’d say and do by hiding behind the shield of being “misunderstood.” When people pretty much read me loud and clear. I was misguided, reckless and defensive. People would ask why? And I’d say, “you just don’t get me.”

Nowadays I want people to understand me so what I do/say can maybe give someone else knowledge of self or some insight.  If I’m eating light bulbs dipped in BBQ sauce there’s a reason for it. Whether it’s for attention or because I like the way thin glass and BBQ sauce tastes, there’s reasoning behind it. Just like everything else we do.

Being misunderstood is not something to be proud of. It may look cool and sound cool to be “misunderstood,” but the greatest minds in this world spoke to us with a clear message and tone that made us listen. What “misunderstood” idiot have you listen to lately?

If I don’t get you… If you feel people won’t ever or don’t understand you. I ain’t gonna listen to you.

In short… If you feel you have the passion to do more with your life than the run of the mill, than do it! If you have the sense to speak clearly and stand behind every word you say, then do it! If you aren’t afraid to try and be something more than just be regular, be it. If you have a voice, use it!

We all my not get what you’re trying to say, but if you stand behind those words and try to make people understand… You’re well on your way to NOT being MISUNDERSTOOD and that feeling is pretty dope.

Oh yeah… There’s definitely exceptions to the rule… Like….. LIL WAYNE… ummm yeah, but I don’t think he’s human status anymore 🙂

Sometimes a kind word keeps my good vibes going in an up doo and up beat manner. Thanks French Tutor… I’m back in NYC the top of 2010 as I promised myself. No time like the present to do what I vowed to do for myself I’d do this year.

And thank you C.E. for the real talk that made me write that last blog (QUOTE OF THE DAY: Christina Evangeline).

Now it’s all about spending the time to make things work from now on instead of tearing shit down.

“Taking care of business yeah without a doubt/ And I’m ‘ma make a million dollars kid before I’m out/ Yeah I gotta give a shout to my peeps in Corona/ Going hand to hand gettin’ loot on the corner/ Life is full of stress and to rest my brain/ So I puff the buddha bless and destroy the pain/ I gotta a lot of things to do, a lot of money to make/ I got no time for you and all the moves you fake…”
