It's been a minute since I've mustered up the courage to write. The courage to write.. ? Is that right? The thing with most us people is that when we catch ourselves in contradiction, it's hard to go back to the things we contradicted. And proceed to contradict. Because it feels safer and maybe we'll come back full circle. I believe the fact that we have to learn about ourselves is that we're human. And being human causes us to make mistakes. Which makes us humans, imperfect. Which is, perfectly, fine. We're not perfect, we should understand that. God understands that. I've always felt that most us people feel we have to be at a certain, level, or state of self to come back to.. ourselves. But all we really have to do is say.. Hey, I'm human. Humans make mistakes. I'm not a perfect person and that's perfectly fine. Admit to our mistakes, lay them down on the ground, step over them and move on. Avoiding facing your mistakes, is avoiding love. He will always love you, no, matter, what. - God is Love

Here's a quick video I made the other day.
Track: James Blake "The Wilhelm Scream"
My friend Casandra texted me the other day saying that I remind her of James Blake, which led me to make this video. So thanks Cas, this is my favourite stop motion I've ever made. - God is Love

"Excuse me, what's 'sizzle'?.. and, this one? Filet?.. Filet, Sizzle, Sizzle, Sizzle, Sizzle, Sizzle, Filet, Filet, Filet" And she went on and on. Back and forth between those two words. Wearing a green sports pinny and a hood over her head and jeans that looked like she slid through home plate. Staring at the two signs on each side. Sizzle. Filet. She asked me "What's sizzle?". I was kind of stuck. I didn't know how to describe or define, sizzle. I can't even remember what I had told her but she understood. It was raining, it was windy, it was cold. She stood there, smiling, while everyone around looked at her as she repeated to herself.. "Sizzle, Filet, Sizzle, Filet...".
Sometimes we take for granted the life we're given in this country. And I hope we find little things like my encounter with an asian woman working as a garbage cleaner for public transit. Who was reading Mcdonalds advertisements at the train station to learn english with the biggest smile on her face to remind us of our fortune. With everything happening in Japan, we realize it. But it shouldn't take a world disaster to do so. - God is Love #prayforjapan

"Let the truth be told, I think I'm the only ?igga out here who let the truth be told" - Kanye West
Men who lack ambition, claim achievement to worthless things. In turn, achieve nothing and go, nowhere. Ambition and success all boil down to one classic saying, "If you're going to talk the talk, then walk the walk". If you're going to look the part, then act the part. BE the part. Your truth, isn't truth until it is tried to be confused with lies. You're love isn't love until it's come face to face with hatred. Real people, and superficial people look the same up front. Until they are both faced with their antithesis. One get's eaten up, and other, is left over. Standing firm, in the storm. Stop talkin'.. or you'll be left walkin'.. while the rest of us take off. Jets. - God is Love
