RANDOM | Old Write-ups From GIANT Mag
Looking thru some old boxes I found a folder full of of some interviews and write-ups I did while I was at GIANT mag that I had printed out to keep for memories lol. Do you know how excited I was to even get a opportunity like that, always gotta stay humble! Interviewing Pitlbull and The Knux was hella fun, miss those days…
I also got the chance to review some products and such, one that so happens to be one of my favorite brands now, Made Me, When they were first starting up. DOPE!

MUSIC | The Weeknd: House of Ballons
I’m a bit late on this one, but The Weeknd just released “House of Balloons” and after a few listens through, I understand why they’ve been getting so much buzz. Odd Future swag meets James Blake ambiance, this is a hazy R&B album that you’ll have on repeat for sure.

RANDOM | GIANT MAG: UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL
I recently went to the movies and watched “The Adjustment Bureau” with Matt Damon, Emily Blunt and Anthony Mackie. I haven’t seen Anthony Mackie in a movie since “Notorious” where he played Tupac and Iwas still interning at Giant Mag (which feels forever ago!) So I was really excited to see him in the Adjustment Bureau where he played a “angel”. Don’t want to give too much away but the movie was awesome, even brought some tears tomy eyes lol. But it did remind me about my little magazine clip I had of us from when I went along to a photoshoot for Giant for the movie “Notorious” where I got to meet the cast. It was pretty awesome, we thumb wrestled lol!
One night President Obama and his wife Michelle decided to do something out of routine and go for a casual dinner at a restaurant that wasn’t too luxurious. When they were seated, the owner of the restaurant asked the president’s secret service if he could please speak to the First Lady in private. They obliged and Michelle had a conversation with the owner. Following this conversation President Obama asked Michelle, “Why was he so interested in talking to you.” She mentioned that in her teenage years, he had been madly in love with her. President Obama then said, “So if you had married him, you would now be the owner of this lovely restaurant,” to which Michelle responded, “No. If I had married him, he would now be the President.”
It seems that love has become so hard to define
So I thought I’d help and give you some hints of mine.
To inspire you to create a script of your own
And to let you know you are not alone.
Love is an amazingly interesting thing
If served up properly, it can make your heart sing.
But somehow, it seems along the way
We lost love’s real meaning, you might say!
We forgot that love is an action-not a word
To think otherwise is really absurd.
We spend a lot of time not giving love a thought
Too busy buying things, when love cannot be bought.
Love is simply kindness,truth, respect and purity
Safely, enthusiasm, understanding and sincerity.
Remember, you always have an inside mentor
Because love is the core that lives in the center.
So come on, get going and write whatever you wish
How you love your friend, family, dog or even your fish.
Think about how everyone and everything makes you feel
Let your words pave the way to become heartfelt and real.
Write, draw or print what all that love honestly means to you
And then watch how your dreams will really come true.
Love is the ONLY answer you truly need to know
For you to be blissful and for your spirit to grow.
Then peace will be created in the world and all will be right
Finally, there will be no heaviness-there will only be light.
