This is something I wrote last year and I just stumbled upon it while searching through some folders on my computer. It’s neither good nor bad, it’s just my sarcastic thoughts running wild.
Intergalactic void of cliché,
now that’s an oxymoron.
so futuristic, yet so past tense like homecoming jitters.
submissions for america’s next top model.
try your luck at america’s next kim kardashian.
No intellectual originality necessary,
only the superficial need apply.
test your skills at being perfectly flawless,
ditch your personality at the door.
mindless drones are the way of the future,
elevate your body, abandon your thoughts.
hints of originality are punishable by law.
you’ll be exiled light years away,
so keep an eye out for those ghastly black holes.
GOW: Ascension is the forthcoming game in the God of War franchise, and it brings Kratos back in action with insane combos, incredibly (might I add disgusting) enemies, and all the ingredients of action, mythology, and advanced weaponry that make Kratos one of the best characters to ever hit PS3.
In the new 30 minute gameplay, we get the chance to see the new title in action. The game starts off with this ugly chick with legs, one arm, and a minion of flies that can bring things to life. From the gist of the conversation, I’m assuming she might have dated Kratos or something, but he sure does plan on kicking her ass for what she puts him through.
Now of course, unless you want to be surprised when you first play the game, then I recommend you don’t watch this video (spoilers guaranteed.)But if you can’t wait and you’re curious what you will be getting your hands on, then grab some popcorn, push play, and enjoy Kratos kicking major ass!
So I was watching television with my mom last night, and she thought it would be a cool idea to talk about what I did this summer in sentences, as well as revelations I’ve discovered. Of course, some of the things I’ve experienced thus far require more than a sentence, but that’s the fun of putting this post together.
So….here we go! My summer thus far:
Went to the Smithsonian Natural Museum of History.
Drove 80mph trying to escape two semi-trucks that I was stuck between (truck sandwich!)
Saw a totally refurbished and working Delorean.
Interracial dating is beautiful, spread the love.
Realized I could be a good girlfriend, even when someone seriously couldn’t get their life together.
Took part in a long distance relationship.
Dumped my boyfriend, realizing I prefer to be single at the age of 21.
Took a Tequila shot (I promise, it was only one)
Saw a giant roach on the sidewalk face-off with a friend.
Met a random girl from an ivy league school (she read my blog) and invited her to party with me and my friends.
Kissed an El Salvadorian guy while it was 101 degrees outside.
Maceo Plex is amazing!
Conquered my addiction to Call of Duty, no need to play it every day, every other day will suffice.
Always saying too much on a date, but realizing my eccentric personality makes me beautiful.
I’m confident, not cocky…yet if that’s how some choose to label me, then fine by me.
Joined Planet Fitness.
New favorite color, electric blue.
Government job and corporate 9 to 5 isn’t for me.
I can’t stand pompous men, go somewhere else with your government job and designer threads.
Danced the night away with a tall African man (Red Fridays, I’m always there dancing.)
A nice DJ walked me all the way to my car after his set.
Made an amazing best friend (taking our first roadtrip together to NYC today.)
Reconnected with old friends, made new ones.
Realized that house is truly the love of my life.
House is the truth.
I can’t live without house.
While sitting in the car with my bestie, we saw a rat walk down the sidewalk with a piece of bread.
Okcupid isn’t too bad, fun for mingling. My profile: http://www.okcupid.com/profile/Jazei
I have huge thighs, but apparently (according to one of my dates) I have massive muscular quads, and that is surely sexy.
Ran outside in my bra and shorts while a massive storm was taking place.
Saw The Avengers twice, or was it three times?
Found a new favorite spot on sundays in DC, Sunglass Sundays.
Lastly, I cut off all my hair and decided it’s a new day and a new me.
Hmmm…that’s all I’ve got far. Needless to say, it’s been an interesting summer. I’ve truly enjoy the good house music, meeting tons of new people, and ending a relationship that just wasn’t right for me (luckily it was only for two months.)
At the end of the day, my summer might not have involved traveling the world or going to a theme park (summer isn’t over yet, so maybe I will get to go,) but my summer does involve finding true friendship, realizing what makes me beautiful, and learning not to care what anybody thinks.
Both producers have a knack for crafting house tracks that usually have an organic vibe (especially when they incorporate African vocals.) One of my favorite house songs that features that atmosphere of nature/native elements is “Warriors of Africa (DJ Le Saint Remix)” by Boddhi Satva & Fredy Massamba.
“Warriors of Africa (DJ Le Saint Remix)” is an awesome track worth checking out, but the latest track from Boddhi Satva features Osunlade & Athenai; a track that is worth listening to repeatedly. The song is called “Flesh of Your Flesh,” and it’s a house song that captures that organic vibe, yet is brought to life with beautiful spoken word (lyrics & notes for the soul.)
The track is such powerful message for the soul, especially when it comes to dealing with pain, regrets, and family ties. The song is about a woman who is addressing her father and admitting that she is the flesh of his flesh, but she is different. Her path is written by God, and her decisions are going to be hers to make.
When I listen to the track it just touches my soul. It makes me want to dance (of course, it’s house) but it also touches my soul. It makes me thing of my family and the ancestors before me; decisions made & and the things spoken & unspoken. Many people try to differentiate themselves from their parents, especially if they made bad decisions. But at the end of the day we are the flesh of our parents flesh, but that doesn’t mean we will make the same mistakes as them. Yet, even if we do make the same mistakes, we still have to remember that we still have to realize and admit that we are often of flesh of their flesh. So no matter what, we’ve got to proud of where we come from.
I’m proud of where I come from and I’m proud to be the flesh of my parent’s flesh, but at the end of the day I’ve got my own path, my own life, and my own journey to take. Luckily I look up to my parents and the path they have walked, but I’m still on my own journey of discovery. Yet the journey is copacetic because my parents gave me insight that I can hold onto years. So at the end of the day, I’m thankful for everything my parents have done for me thus far, and how they continue to inspire me daily to find my own path.
