This is random but it cracked me up

Mr. Sippy Sippy

First of all, I am not going to defend Kanye for his outburst at the VMA the other night, because he was wrong for ruining the moment for the talented Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech. But really, was this really that bad?! As shocked as I am to see what happened, I am just as shocked to see that people are surprised by his antics. Come on people, this is Kanye West, certify egomaniac and is no stranger for these type of outburst. Remember...the Bush bashing, MTV Europe, AMAs. What I am surprised is that MTV has not apologized to Taylor Swift for allowing this to happen. Why should they apologized? Well it's not the first time MTV has allowed these type of things to happen, not to mention other crazy shenanigans. In my opinion, they should have be alerted when Kanye was seen taking swigs out of a bottle of Hennessy on the red carpet. For a person with a history of stage crashing and random outburst (did I mention he was drunk) I wondered my nobody stopped him on his way to the stage. What was everybody thinking? "Oh there goes Kanye, he's heading to the stage during a middle of Taylor Swift's acceptance speech because he's sure to have something good to say". Let's not forget it happened again during Jay-Z's show closing performance when they let Lil' Mama walk on stage and crash the performance.

With that said, there's no way to spin this to say Kanye was not wrong, he was wrong. It's just funny to see everybody blast him for the incident. The only bad part to this was who he did it to, an innocent up and coming pop star. Remember when he crashed the acceptance speech for Justice and Simian at the MTV Europe Awards when that happened, people did the same judging of Kanye's character but no one felt bad for Justice and Simian? When it happens to a 19 year old pop star, they crucify him as if he just pummeled Rihanna face inside a Lamborghini. Just let it go, get over it. When he goes on his next tour, everybody will still be there. When he drops his next album, everybody will go out and cop. Just let it go.

Don't Quit

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,

When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest! if you must; but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up, though the pace seems slow;
You might succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup.
And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out;
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt;
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit;
It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.


Haven't been blogging for a bit, don't know if I lost the love for it or just I haven't had to deal with much or any bullshit this summer. Whatever it is, I am still here, I am back.

September is here which means summer is finally over and I am actually glad that its past us because for real this was one of the best summer I've had in a while. No bullshit, just fun, out and about having fun with friends.

On another note, darkmatters is hitting crunch time as we're trying to hit all of our deadlines for our debut project. I've been M.I.A. for a minute, but now I am back working on the website, and our brand designs. I need to create some samples to show the crew so we can get moving on promoting our brand and our project. The next two months is going to be huge and very important for us so look out for that.

Anyways got to get back to work, here are some of my favourite shots from my trip our east a few weeks ago. Play safe, deuces!
