When it RAINS, it pours. So find some nice "CHICKS" to keep you dry.

Hey, I tried

Now normally I wouldn't do this but what's a blog if I cant
keep it real. For the longest I've wanted some nice "CHICKS"
I could show off in the rain, sleet, hail or snow. But no one has
been able to feed my cravings. ALife came close but I hated
her skin complexion. So I said to myself, "Self, why don't you
make your own"

About 7 months ago I decided to use Marc Jacob Men's
Rain Boot as my inspiration and template.

Then I took out my trusty sewing kit that's filled with all types
of gadgets and sharp objects and cut the boots down to a more
versatile and masculine cut that went with "MY VISION". I also
used the buckle that was originally on the upper side as a strap to
give it that sneaker feel.

(sidebar: yes that is my wall in my apt)

Being that I'm my biggest critic, I just wasn't satisfied with the
outcome. I felt as if it was missing something. Like whats Tofu
without any type of sauce to go with it? So I went back to my
trusty sewing kit and made eyelets for laces. I just knew my
shit didn't stink then, LOL

I was set and happy with what I created and it served its purpose.
But to my surprise and not my intention, on a rainy day I decided
to make my daily visit to the Marc Jacob boutique. When I walked
in, one of the managers walked up to me and said "OH SHIT, I'VE
"I made them". People in the store were breaking their necks,
employees were coming up from the stock room, security was trying
to keep everyone under control. Although I hate massive attention,
I must say it felt good.So long story short, the manager and I had
small talk and exchange info in the event that he would get me a
meeting with the Big Wigs over at The Marc Jacobs Corporate
office to show what I've done. He kept his end of the deal and its
a blessing that I am still very thankful for to this day. Nonetheless,
I felt I couldn't show them what I've made without showing what
I was capable of doing. So I went back to the drawing broad,
literally,and played with colors and design concepts just to
implement more ideas.

In the end, I was honored and grateful to have spoken with
and shared my vision with the Good Folk over in the Marc Jacobs
Corporate office. Everyone was really excited about the designs
and my passion for the brand itself. But they came up with the
decision that they weren't looking to change the current design
of their Original Rain Boot at the moment. I was still geeked to
even have my name mentioned in a creative design meeting.
It shows how far you can go if you believe and let determination
and will be your pilot. I am far from done and "This was only a test"

So Brain, what we'll we come up with next???

I would personally like to thank everyone associated at the Marc Jacobs Fashion
House. You have given me the boost and fuel to keep going at all my fashion goals.



Not for me, do it for your Mother and Grand Parents

who paved the way and tried to make a better "Days"
for you and I. We all chanted and screamed for "CHANGE"
so why not do a little changing within yourself. Now I'm
no Angel but C'mon enough is enough.

Homeboy, This isn't nice

Females too, leave something for the imagination.
Although it can be a major turn-on,

its still time for change.

And if you must "Bust A Sag" for the sake of
height restriction (i.e. I'm 6'4 and almost nobody
makes 31 waist by 36 length, so I'm stuck with 32
and 34 length.) or you just like the way it feels, make

sure your shirt is at a decent length where its covering
your business. Maybe even tucking it in shown here in Exhibit A.

Exhibit A

Tip For The Saggers: If something drops on the
floor or your shoelace is untied, just leave it be for. Save
us the sight of seeing your undergarments and private areas.

And as you all may know, in some places it is now a crime,
sad but true. So please be careful and smarten up.

Kanye is the leader of the FREE WORLD

This guy can even inspire a little girl in her PJs on a Saturday morning. Isn't she suppose to be watching Dora the Explorer or something.

I guess she rather "Put On"..... LMBO

"CHICKS" Of The Week


(sidebar) I'm being stingy with this "Chick", I'm not giving
any info on
her because I want to be the only one she sleeps
with at night so BACK OFF!!

These Boots are made for STOMPING, Thats just what they do...


*I wont even say where I got them from but they
were cheaper than a Fish & Chip dinner at Long John Silver
(Now you can't catch that with a Gordan Fisherman Hook)

"DAMN Homey, in High School you were the man homey"

Big Mike



I love these pants. When worn right, you set yourself far away from the Nay Sayers and Day Breakers.

Scandinavian Street Style!!!!


AIR OFF MY CHEST..... "God show me the way, the devils' trying to break me down.

I have to say
Since my parents passed away
Most you people don't even deserve a Hi from me
You see, if you ever wanted to ever be anything
There'd always be somebody that shoot down any dream
There'll always be haters, that's the way it is
Hater Guys marry hater Girls and have hater kids
But they're gonna have to take my life before they take my drive
Because when I was barely living, that's what kept me alive
Just the thought that maybe it could be better than what we at this time
Make it out of this grind, before I'm out of my mind
And get some leeway on the he say, she say
Some people hate me, but want to smile in my face
Spanish people saying "No hable inglés"
And everybody want to run to me for outfit
It's funny how these whack dudes need my help
Wasn't around when I couldn't feed myself
Dog, If I was you, I wouldn't feel myself
Dog, If I was you, I'd kill myself
Made a MAN myself, and I'm still myself
And I'ma look in the mirror if I need some help
Now I'll speak from the heart, you all fronting
Everybody feel a way about Ron but at least you all feel something, feel something...

I always knew that one day
They'd try to bring me down

"CHICKS" Of The Week

Everyone who knows me well knows that I have a crazed obsession with sneakers and shoes. Its got so bad that I call them "CHICKS" instead of kicks because they make my heart go BOOM, BOOM, BOOM like foxy young ladies.

HEY HEY HEY HEY, Dont' Say You Will......

The GREATEST Album Since Michael Jackson's Thriller.

Music saves my LIFE and this right here is my "MANIFESTO"

** Notice how I incorporated all the titles to each song in my Life's Manifest Untitled... now that's deep

Eight hundred and eight Heartbreaks happen every hour of everyday.
Some will grow and some will fade.
As you know love gets bottled up and desired like a small pill.
Peer pressure calling your name, screaming SAY YOU WILL.
Searching from coast-coast, state-state, finally the doors open up
So what happens now?
You enter the doors with fears, hopes and stress.
Just to find out that Love is HEARTLESS.
Now how can this be,
I was taught from birth that love was AMAZING.
But now that I’m getting older, Love just keep on fading, fading, fading.
Like my local supermarket I wish my LOVE LOCKDOWN around 8pm,
instead of staying open 24hrs letting in the ice cold wind.
Lord help me please, throw me something to fill this void,
because sadly I’m one doctor’s visit away from being PARANOID.
I dread those nights hearing my Miranda rights from that ROBOCOP.
I can’t even roam under the bright
STREET LIGHTS without being stopped.
Then suddenly my phone rings and in the background plays the blues.
My brother screaming, crying “Little bro, I have some BAD NEWS”.
Mommy is gone, never to return, my mind crashed and my heart burned.
So I hope you’re happy now Love, you’re starting to make it clear.
I’m so afraid of you I even SEE YOU IN MY NIGHTMARES.
I remember in 2006, it was October 15th to be exact.
Love finally decided to make a full comeback.
Then my papa was laid to rest, and that really made me bitter.
So now everyday when I wake up, it feels like the

Its Been A Long Time Coming, But I know A Change Has Come

Now that all Smoke is gone
And the Battle is finally won.
VICTORY is finally ours,
History so long, so long......
