I’ve been waiting since 2001 for this movie to happen. I gotta go go back and read the book. I’m kinda freaking out cause I can’t remember anything from this trailer. I’m gonna get mooked as fuck and read the book. Then I’m gonna do mushrooms and watch the movie.
PS. NO SHOT I’M DOING MUSHROOMS AND WATCHING THIS SHIT.
When we were making Quarter Water Raised Me Vol. I, me and Bas knew nothing about the game other then create dope shit with dope people and good things will happen. When I was finishing up my degree at NYU I met a kid named Adam Saewitz. He was a film major who shot the Dollar and A Dream concert I hosted.
We decided to link up with him to see if was down to shoot a visual for one of the joints off QWRM1. He showed us a photo essay about a waitress and then we went to eat lunch and that waitress was our waitress. Some really trippy shit.
The photo essay stuck in my head. For two years I pitched different variations of that idea to every client I had. I wanted to create my own version. Tell people’s stories to the world through pictures and their own personal insights. Stories, parables … it’s what made society society. People learning from other people. When the team sat down to discuss how we could expand on Cole’s album, I brought up the idea of BornSinner.com to Adam Roy, my good friend and Dreamville’s Creative Director.
Adam took a mooked idea and helped cultivate it into BornSinner.com. It blows my mind that not only do I get to see our idea come to fruition, we partnered with Rolling Stone in the process. If it was not for me being bodied in a North Carolina backyard thinking about my future, I don’t hit up Quick about booking Cole at NYU. If I don’t hit up Quick about booking Cole at NYU, I don’t meet Saewitz. If I don’t meet Saewitz, I don’t see that photo essay. If I don’t see that photo essay, I’m not inspired to tell the story of people’s stories. All of that led to BornSinner.com.
I figured out another way to test my whole “Game of Cheeks” theory for Game of Thrones. We are gonna play a little game fiends.
Last night we were super mooked and trying to put on an episode of Game of Thrones on HBO GO that we missed a few weeks ago. Granted we were really, really mooked, but we were fucking dying laughing because nobody could figure out what episode was the right one based on the HBO GO episode descriptions.
From there we started to read the other episode descriptions. We realized based on the descriptions you can not guess a single episode. How fucking confusing are these HBO GO descriptions? I’ll give you a sample:
The Night’s Watch takes stock. Varys meets his better. Arya is taken to the commander of the Brotherhood. Dany exchanges a chain for a whip.
I can’t stop laughing reading them. It’s not only because they are awful, but because NO ONE KNOWS WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON. If you didn’t read the books you are a fucking liar if you think you know shit. You don’t know any of these names and you don’t know shit about what is going on.
People have been saying I’m giving this show too hard of a time. Bas and @Oakshades defend this shit on the reg. So I came up with a new game I like to call Game of Cheeks: Fiend Trivia. I took the following descriptions from HBO GO and mixed up the order of all 6 episodes for this season. I want you to see how many you can get right:
We used to bump The Warm Up to The Warm Up every night while we smoked blunts. Between this shit and my diatribe about the internet, I’m feeling nostalgic. Hold while I go text my ex and see if I can get her to send me some snapchats.
Yo fuck this nigga Nicholas Carr. I read his book The Shallows in 2010. I was writing an article for new iPad magazine called ‘Takeout’ when I decided to go ham on his POV. I’m pretty sure my argument still holds up today. It’s not a light read. Fuck with me tho so you can prove this nigga wrong. 2010 @oakshades wrote this ==> Read more ›
Quick thought I had on the L-train this morning. Does anyone else fucking HATE when they see someone reading on the subway?
Whenever I see this I just get unreasonably upset. I can’t figure it out, but that shit irks me like no other. Like am I crazy?
I understand if you are commuting from a far distance or something. But today I saw this motherfucker get on for one stop, read like a half page, and get off at the next stop. Like that book can’t be that interesting. I just refuse to believe that.
But it’s more than just the fact I feel like 60% of you are just reading because it looks like the cool thing to do. I’m not trying to be like ignorant here. I’m not trying to shit on reading or tell kids reading isn’t cool. I just think it’s twice as ignorant to be reading in a place as fucking hectic as the NYC subway. It is way too crowded for people to be engaging in activities that require you to take all your focus off your surroundings. Like my big ass has to get shoved in the back by some douche because you are too slow to react because you just HAD to read right now. You people are always blocking the exits and shit. You are basically telling me you don’t give a fuck about being considerate to others.
I’m not trying to be funny here. I’m just hoping I can find one other person on the entire internet that shares this pet peeve.
