Keys To The City. I collect passes for the subway/metro rail system trains of each city I explore (if they have one). Wanted to see these cities since a kid and im hyped that as an adult I know my way around the biggest ones. 1st row: New York City // Chicago. 2nd row: Los Angeles // Detroit. 3rd row: Philadelphia // San Francisco. 🚉🎫
The neon green tape on the right side of Bill Cosby is the definition of passion. What would make you want to retire? once you earn enough money? Bill's net worth is more than Will Smith & Samuel L Jackson combined ($350M+). Maybe after you won enough awards? hows 4 Emmys and thanks to countless comedy albums 9 Grammys? How bout after you get the money, awards and recognition like when the president gave him the Presidential Medal of Freedom the highest award for an American civilian? After you earn every possible accolade maybe youd still stick with something if your body is healthy enough? Cosby had to be held onto all day & pushed by hand where to walk because he is almost completely blind now. So blind that he couldn't find a lone chair with a spotlight on it in the middle of a large empty floor on Arsenio's show so they put that neon green tape down so he could see something that would let him get to a chair without assistance. Think about this, you have $350million, too many Awards from your work to carry including the highest honor possible from the president, your health is falling apart so much that you cant find a chair with a spotlight on it on an empty stage, there's only one reason left to not retire, passion. Passion can trump money, awards, highest honors & even health. Pretty inspiring when I watched this in front of me that day. #BillCosby
used to collect bullet casings I'd find downtown. on my way to and from Berrics id find a new bullet shell on the sidewalk about once a week. found most of them on the 6th st bridge going over the LA river. mostly handgun casings but once found one for a high power rifle which was interesting. this bridge into Boyle Heights has seen a lot of action in its time unfortunately.
Me and my road trip Bull Whip part 2: I hit so many things with that whip. but my favorites might have been when I brought it into a museum in Texas and whipped a Mummy that was like 6 feet behind a fence (trick shot) and then I cracked the whip against a car hitler owned in the museum cause fork him. R.I.P. to the bull whip, tried to whip a bottle at the beach and accidentally threw it into the ocean.
snapped these pics when i saw this on the news a few years ago, I wish I had a video of it. So much to appreciate. "bird attack victim" probably cause of that bird nest ass haircut you got, also thanks for drawing the suspect too. If I see a bird that looks like that I won't call the police I'll call the men in black cause that bird dont exist on this planet ya dumb bitch.
In a comedy club not too long ago I ate the GREATEST COOKIE ever.. After years of putting it off due to the fear of what ifs I decided the day had come to start my dream of stand up comedy. Found a club outside LA with an open mic and went with the objective of seein if I had the guts to walk on a stage and tell a room of 200 strangers my thoughts. Any story I found online of other first times were all nightmarish bombing or straight choking. This only added to my anxiety. But here I was in the back of the room as names were called by lottery. after 4 comics the speakers say "everybody give a welcome to the next comic hitting the stage.. Donovan Strain" thats when it hit me. Every step I took my brain was going "youre walking to a stage?!" I stepped up & my stomach dropped as I pulled the mic out the stand. The lights 1000 times brighter than I imagined, I couldnt see anyones face past front row. But I began. And somehow... laughs came when Id hoped followed by a supportive applause as I walked off, but this wasnt even the end. The next comic wasted half their stage time talkin about how much they liked my last joke. Then a waitress sets a plate on my table & tells me "this is from the owner, great set, he sent you a fresh baked cookie from our kitchen" I ate that cookie slowly watching the rest of the comics while still in shock not just from the support from the crowd & comics but also apparently from the owner that I didnt know was present. Afterwards he pulled me aside, wanted me to repeat two of my bits for him & after a little "whats ya name? where ya from?" he looked thru a planner & offered to book me as an opening act.. off my first try at stand up! Why Im sharing is: I was terrified of the possible results of what would happen that I put it off for YEARS day dreaming and youll never ever know what the result could be if you dont ever try what you dream about. Whether that day wouldve turned out as unforgettable as it did for me or not Im glad Im not living a life wondering "what if" and if I can inspire you to do one thing in your life I hope you aggressively set out to end your what ifs as soon as possible.
while in Philly (enjoying ramen and fruit punch) I met the super rad homie @avacadomaine. He just started a new brand Terror Of Planet X (@terrorofplanetx) thats definitely not like any other. Their art direction is sick as fork, original and the team is a gang of raw fools out of Philadelphia, whats not to like? Right out the gate pulled off a Stan Lee collaboration and dropping a video, "NIBIRU CATACLYSM".. seriously you should Follow @terrorofplanetx because if @avacadomaine is behind this I guarantee it will be a juggernaut of carnage.
