“4,748 Self-Portraits and Counting: Jeff Harris”

It’s interesting to see any art form intertwined with real life experiences and struggles that we as humans learn to endure,over come or naturally adapt to. Jeff Harris documented his everyday life and his journey through out cancer & becoming paralyzed in one leg through the medium of photography. I applaud him for his courage to let strangers like us into his everyday life and most importantly show case how life is essentially supposed to be lived… “yolo” if you will (lol) I also enjoyed the role exchange between a regular person and a celebrity persona, it’s interesting to me. For some odd reason I’m always attracted to art that is engaged with cancer but it’s not meant to make me or others feel sorrow or sadness but more as a reminder that anything can happen and we as a human race believe that we are “untouchable” and that we can’t be affected by life altering experiences and to thank god & count your blessings. Being that my mother runs a breast cancer support group I see women in just about every stage of cancer & all of them seem to enjoy life more & it really keeps me going and makes it clear to me as to how minute my problems are. Enjoy the video viewers. -Duckz.

“R.I.P Steve Jobs”


“That’s been one of my mantras — focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”

“Always In My Ears”

Fitz and the Tantrums! I can’t wait to see & meet this band in October they are truly a breath of fresh air! Incredible! I’ll let the music speak for its self.

“Advice”

“I think we like to complicate things when it is really quite simple.Find what it is that makes you happy and who it is that makes you happy and you’re set. promise.”

"pound it"


The idea of simplicity revealed itself to me in the midst of total chaos & confusion & in that moment I began to ask myself, “Does doing this making you happy?” “Does being around this person make me happy?” & “Does the situation that Im in make me happy?” Being that most of the answers to these questions were no, I had to make a change & instill a sense of balance back into my life. I think that a lot of us get so caught up in things that we feel we “have” to do or we have to say yes to & we end up losing site of our own happiness. For me it was more of a “creative blockage” I remember the days where I couldn’t wait to do my post on here or I couldn’t wait to pick out something to sketch out & then my passion for it just diminished over time. I was focusing my energy on things I couldn’t change & after noticing this I just immediately began to remove things in my life that doesn’t make me happy or takes up that creative place in my mind. Now that Im going forward learning from this experience & moving on Im on a negativity blocking spree & Im striving to keep things simple & not overly complex.In a way I feel as if Im purifying, I know most of you are probably thinking this is a really personal post but reading this is a reminder to you guys to stay true to who you are & what makes you happy & don’t EVER give a person or a situation the chance to take your happiness from you. I’ve always gave you guys a glimpse of me on here & that won’t ever change & it sets my blog on a different platform…. A platform that only I can create.

“First Heartbreak: Doc Martens”

“Gut-wrenching isnt it?, then you’ve got to kind of… suppose it’s like ying and yang, you know?… And then you have to try and feel whole yourself again… because when you are in a relationship you are, like, quite enmeshed in a way…’ -Agyness Deyn

I found this video very interesting for the simple fact that everyone has experienced heartbreak & we can all relate to this project. We all have a different story to tell in dealing with heartbreak and its interesting to hear someone’s story because we all know that heartbreak can completely rip you apart or it can present a new path or new beginning. Though it’s an very emotional situation and process she has the courage to share her story and I respect that.

“Beauty Is In The Eye Of The Beholder”


“Ye’s Other Other Benz”

They ain’t seen me cause I pulled up in my other Benz.
Last week I was in my other other Benz.


Footage of the day in 2002 when Kanye got his “other other Benz” (G550 wagon). It was the same day that he recorded his verse for Jay-Z’s “The Bounce,” their first rapping collaboration.
Cheers!
