"Society has put up so many boundaries, so many limitations on what’s right and wrong that it’s almost impossible to get a pure thought out. It’s like a little kid, a little boy, looking at colors, and no one told him what colors are good, before somebody tells you you shouldn’t like pink because that’s for girls, or you’d instantly become a gay two-year-old. Why would anyone pick blue over pink? Pink is obviously a better color. Everyone’s born confident, and everything’s taken away from you" #adetroitfilm #detroit
I was drawing a picture the other day and realized I had nothing to color it. then realized I wanted a different background. so I took the photo and colored the characters on my MacBook. I'm no Zach Garland, that's for sure. but who is😊? I like it. i kept having the words "safeguard your heart" in my head literally the whole time I was making this. I think that's what it's about. #adetroitfilm
we had to shoot these "lifestyle" or B-roll photos, or whatever you want to call it for this magazine article one time, and this was one of the ones that didn't get used. ironically, it's my favorite photo of me I've ever had. Broadway is a wizard with the lens game. 360 with the wrist boyh! #adetroitfilm #skateboarding #detroit
as I was seeing on twitter how insane everything that is going on in ferguson is right now, I realized that though it's so tragic, Michael Browns life was a life that is a building block of history. with the attempts to cover it up, we've seen so many random celebrities and citizens and completely anonymous people tweet, instagram, whatever social media, we've seen posts showing how real and tragic the situation is. waking so many people up to what is actually occurring, and showing it can't be hidden. in doing so it's showed us that we make our own history and our own news now, because whatever we put out to the crazy world of internet, stays, and could be stumbled upon many moons from now. crazy. this pictures unrelated, and I try to avoid sky pics like the plague, but I think it looks cool. idk. much love to Michael brown, and his friends and family. keep your hearts. #ferguson
for the excess amount of white girls drunk at parties swearing that them and their friends need a tv show, I feel you. except for some reason I think only one of them would be cool. who knows. this was my 6am adventure, @dylanjaye attempted a caveman drop for all the golf course employees. #adetroitfilm #getbuckeveryday
can't be afraid to collaborate. can't be defeated by lack of opportunity. can't lose confidence when the opportunities you create fall through, or people try to prevent them. can't worry about people painting an incorrect picture and being so convinced they're right. EVERYTHING, good and bad, is tested by your character. with patience your character will set things right on it's own. worry about what you do and no one else, unless you can help them. if you feel it, it's real. if your hearts in the right place, you will stay on beat. and don't get caught in your feelings, especially negative ones. to: myself. but you can read. #adetroitfilm #detroit
Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete? Proving nature's law is wrong it learned to walk without having feet. Funny it seems, but by keeping it's dreams, it learned to breathe fresh air. Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else ever cared. #adetroitfilm
