I love her still

I am a little late on this, like maybe 2006 late. That's the last I heard of this girl, she got married, had a baby and her band was finished. I was heartbroken, because The Distillers were simply awesome and just like that everything was over.


Not quite, because she's back and like I mentioned earlier I am late on this since I have yet to own anything from her new band "Spinnerette". I am holding out hope that they don't sound remotely the same as The Distillers but then again anything from her I would love.

I have no good reason for posting this but I like the artwort. This is the cover for their first EP btw.

Does it not bother you...

That for the last few years that we've all turned against the men in the picture above and now that he's gone everybody is acting like he's our best friend. It's like all the MJ haters out there all of a sudden disappeared and now that he passed away they act like they've been on his shit all along. Now I get it you want to pay respects to the man but my god, it's just crazy how many people are acting like they've been on this man's side all of these years.

Another thing that bothers me is his family, I am sure we've all read stories about Joe Jackson and how he allegedly abused Michael when he was growing up. Well I don't need to go any further, just watch this.

This is borderline comical, you had to be reminded by a reporter to call Michael your "son". You have to get a publicist to read a statement. You even have the nerve to promote a record distribution label. Just listen to the grief in his voice. SMH.

OMFG I am gonn cry

I see this happen to people all the time, and I'd like to think (no I am) extremely careful with things that I care for. So when I picked this baby up and hit play and saw this blank screen of death featuring a huge motherfucking crack. I felt my heart drop, like I said in my previous post about my iPod, I love this baby to death. It's been with me everywhere, everyday, all the time, it's a part of me. I hear stories about how people's iPod break and stuff I never thought for a moment it would happen to me. What the fuck am I going to do now?! It's a good thing I have an iPhone, but still it will never be or come close to what this baby meant to me. This is really great, and the thing is I don't know how it got like that. I don't remember dropping it or anything. This is just an awesome way to end off the day. My team drafts the wrong guy (smfh) and now my iPod screen GGed on me GFG.

You gotta

Watch this

Freaks and Geeks

I was at Best Buy the other day wasting time, when I saw a boxset for "Freaks and Geeks" remember these guys?! Apparently a lot of people have never heard of "Freaks and Geeks", because this show is 10 years old and it was only around for one season. I remember when I was maybe 11 or 12 when this show was around, it was probably the first non family/kids show I've watched. I remember how I used to have a huge crush on Linda Cardellini's character Lindsey. It's just so strange how most of these guys have moved from doing a critically acclaimed show to big blockbusters. The real funny thing is that I hated Seth Rogen's character Ken because...well if you watch it you'll understand why. But now I am a huge fan of his work. Anyways I regretted not buying the boxset because I never watched all of the episode, so doing what I do best I downloaded the whole thing. Shhhhhhhhh. Alright, episode 3 let's go.

I forgot to mention how many cameos they had on the show, but then again nobody really has any idea who they were because they only choose lesser known actors. I am not sure who else was on it, I only remember Rashida Jones, Shia LeBeouf and Ben Stiller.

David Knows

I've been a fan of Levi Maestro's work for a minute. I remember a while back, I used to be like who the fuck is this dude. Then he started his show Maestro Knows and I've been a fan since. Above is his most recent Maestro Knows episode. He's in New York right now following Anthony Hamilton on tour and dudes just been skating from spot to spot. It reminds me of my trip to NYC last year and how much I want to go back. Anyways back on topic it's just really cool to see his interaction with people and it just seems like this guy is mad connected. If you're familiar with his show, it just seems like this guy knows everybody. I think it's gotten to a point where I want to pick up a camera and start shooting stuff. Just playing I know nothing about making videos and junk. But check him out either on his blog or his hypebeast blog.

I wanna get new shades

I've been feening for a pair of FLATOPS for a minute, but I don't want to get them because I will feel like I am cheating on my Way Farers.


I was really hesitant to go watch this movie in the theaters because I deemed it "was a watch it at home for free" type of movie. If you love action flicks then this one is definitely for you. The story was simple, fast pace and tons of ass kicking. I swear I am never seem so many people get decapitated in an movie or anything ever. Liam was chopping left and right, he took down everybody that was in his way. It was almost like watching a whole season of 24 in one compact 1 hour 30 minute film. If you don't mind some broken necks and gun shots and love action. This one is for you.

To all the Fathers on this Father's day

He leans back from his desk
Rubs the back of his neck, the stress takes effect
Grips the bridge of his noise
Squints while he's showing emotion he normally won't
At 56, he re-evaluates
Possibly regretting some decisions that he's made
Black is turning grey, patches of his age
Reflecting from the glasses of passive of every page
Passionately Dave reads, reading on occasion
Dreaming of the day when he can do the same thing
He's always wanted to write, that's all he's wanted in life
With two daughters, a son and a remarkable wife
He's in a bind, he has to provide
A family is relying on a millie to survive
His father died at 56
So he's well aware how vital a father figure is
How big of a responsibility it is
To be a good husband and care for your kids
Never miss an event, helping them with their homework
Discipline to prevent things when they're older
His only son is only 21
And focus as a poet has only just begun
Papa isn't dumb, he understands what this means
His dream is my dream, my dream is his dream

I close my eyes and I can see (His dream)
The sacrifices he made for me (His dream)
Put it aside for his family (His dream)
Yeah, so I'ma keep it alive, Yeah

And so he targeted to be the dream guardian
Guarding it from anything and anyone whose harming it
But in his heart, he knows the hardest thing about it is
Giving up on his dream to be all about his kids
As he kisses the lips of the misses
For 24 years going on the 25th
He thinks to himself, this alone is a wealth
It's greater than what's bought and then sold on the shelf
Sometimes a dream is all that we have
We have to continue to dream
Cause once it is lost amongst other thoughts
Then what really are we, what are we?

So he sits back at his desk
Cracking his knuckles and back of his neck
Faxing a paper displaying his name
On another application explaining the main
Things they should know but the things that they don't
Are the things that distinguish him as an adult
And over the phone, he can never expose
The role that he chose, the role in his home
And at home, he's a leader, a father
He'll prove it by using his son and his daughters
In their life, he'll be playing the part of
The one who inspires, the one we admire
His only son is only 21
And focus as a poet has only just begun
Papa isn't dumb, he understands what this means
His dream is my dream, my dream is his dream

Remember this guy?

I don't really "dig" JDiggz because I don't like his older records, but I came across this the other day on hustleGRL. It's kind of hella annoying at the beginning then it got better and better. Overall the song ain't bad, still don't like him though but I can fuck with this.

America's Most Wanted

Uhhh....Weezy, Jeezy, Drizzy oh my. Fuck Soulja Boy, August 4th at Molson Amphitheater. Who's with me?!?! =)

New Divide

I remember Kanye saying something about how he had to quickly release his "Welcome to Heartbreak" video with Cudi because he claims he had to since someone was going to release video with similar effects. Then Mr. Hudson came out with his video which I thought was the video Ye was referring to. But then he wouldn't stiff arm his own artist would he? Then LP dropped their video for "New Divide" from the new Transformers movie, maybe this was the video he was referring to....just a hunch.

This is phucking brilliant..chea?!

Now I know I have a tendency to over hype things, but this is truly brilliant. I know I am very late on this movie and I have put off watching this for the longest time. Without giving it away, Once is a modern-day musical about a busker and an immigrant and their eventful week in Dublin, as they write, rehearse and record songs that tell their love story. Aside from the music, the chemistry of the two co stars was what made the movie that much more enjoyable. Not to sound cheesed or anything, but I haven't felt so moved by a film since Before Sunset. This is just a timeless movie, and a beautiful story. Not the mention that the soundtrack is amazing. I am really glad I watched this and I am really thankful for my friend Teddy for recommending this.

Photoshop magic

I love to mess around with photoshop, I don't do it as much as I use to, before I would always have it open so I can play around with pictures. Nowadays I only use it when I have a purpose for using photoshop. So with that said, the other day I was asked by a friend to help restore an old picture. Her mom had removed it from the original frame and during the process a "good" portion of it was ripped off the surface of the photo. Therefore leaving rips and white patch(s) on the bottom of the photo. My job was basically to "fill in the blank". I was "iffy" on posting this since I don't have the permission to but it's nothing a little smiley face can't fix. I am only posting this because I am proud of the work I did fixing this. Here's what I did.

Now I am not a pro, so to speak, there are flaws on the final product so don't kill me for it.

I need to started watching Jimmy Kimmel again

Check me out on...

...on Tumblr. I've been on there for a minute now, actually longer than I have been on Blogger. I just haven't gotten the hang of Tumblr until now. For the longest time I didn't know what I wanted to do with my tumblr blog. I certainly don't want to make it like this blog, but since I want to keep Overdose On Life more personal and up to date. I hope to make my Tumblr page more about what inspires me because I am always looking to be inspired. Whether it's art, music or culture, whatever the case it's going to be on there. Let's see how long I can keep up this dual blog thing going.

This is borderline comical

EDC opens up to CNN about his sex scandal. This is must watch, got me laughing when dude said he "wants to direct and produce movies". Talk about irony impaired. Click HERE for the link to the interview.

I remained a Giant and you're Jeremy Shockey

I expected better for this video, it's not bad, song still hot, and this is one of those rare occasions where I thought Lady GaGa looked good without shades.

Tomorrow will be okay

And you, bring me to my knees
All the times,
That I could beg you please
In vain
All the times
That I felt insecure
For you
And I leave
My burdens at the door

But I'm on the outside
And I'm looking in
I can see through you
See your true colors
'Cause inside you're ugly
You're ugly like me
I can see through you
See to the real you

All this time
That I felt like this won't end
was for you
And I taste
What I could never have
was from you
All those times
That I've tried
My intentions
Were full of pride
And I waste
More time than anyone

But I'm on the outside
And I'm looking in
I can see through you
See your true colors
'Cause inside you're ugly
You're ugly like me
I can see through you
See to the real you

All the times
That I've cried
All this wasted
It's all inside
And I feel
All this pain
Stuffed it down
It's back again
And I lie
Here in bed
All alone
I can't mend
And I feel
Tomorrow will be okay

But I'm on the outside
And I'm looking in
I can see through you
See your true colors
'Cause inside you're ugly
You're ugly like me
I can see through you
See to the real you

5 Years later...this comes out

One of my favourite Kanye records, GLC blessed out by posting the full video on his blog. I am still a little puzzled by why they didn't release it back in 04. But Whatever this is crack.

I've been workin' this graveshift and I ain't made shit
I wish I could buy me a spaceship and fly past the sky
I've been workin' this graveshift and I ain't made shit
I wish I could buy me a spaceship and fly past the sky

You are my sunshine
