"I’m giving a presentation tomorrow on the experience of African American males growing up in America.""What’s the thesis?""Hundreds of interviews have been conducted, and we’ve found that not only do most African American males fail to acknowledge institutional racism, they mainly tend to blame themselves for their failures. They say things like they didn’t work hard enough, or made too many mistakes. They don’t understand that they weren’t afforded the same opportunities."

I’d like to see this study.

2013 - I invested in the future and myself. As such, I have established a structure for myself that will allow me to attain my goals and desires.

2014 - I plan to invest in the present and others. As such, I will create relationships and murder my ego.

Give Me A Chance - Beau Sia

if there is anyone
in the audience
in the entertainment industry
watching me perform,
I want you to keep in mind
that if you are casting any films
and need a Korean grocery store owner,
a computer expert or the random thug
of a yakuza gang,
i’m your man.
if you’re making Jackie Chan
knock-off films
and need a stunt double,
that stunt double is me.
if you need a Chinese jay-z,
a Japanese eminem,
or a Vietnames n’sync,
please consider me,
because I am all those things and more.
i come from the house that
step n’ fetchit built
and i will broken English my way
to sidekick status
if that’s what’s expected of me
make an Asian different strokes.
i’ll walk around on my knees yelling,
ahso, what you talk about wirris?!
because it’s been 23 months and 14 days
since my art has done anything for me,
and i would be noble and toil on,
i swear i would.
live for the art and the art alone,
and all that crapass.
but college loans are monthly up my ass,
my salmon teriyaki habit is getting way out of control,
and i want some
motherfucking cable!
so you can understand where i’m coming from.
when tight verse
exhibiting dynamics
within the text
falls by the wayside
rejoice in its
pretty, packaged, boygroup,
talentless twats
sent from florida
to make me puke
but i’m not preaching. none siree, boss.
i cannot stress how ready i am
to sell out,
wear jiggy clothes,
and yell from the top of my lungs
any hook i am told to sing.
if you want the caricature
of a caricature,
then i am that caricature.
if you want an exotic dragon lady
like lucy liu,
who fucks like a kama sutra
come to life,
just tell my ass where ya want it,
and i will bend over.
if you need a voice-over artist,
just tell me
where you want the,
hi-ya’s! to go
and i will be there,
because i am all that more,
i am a pop culture whore,
i an a co-sponsored world tour,
an i am
an appropriated culture at my core.
i’ve been noticed, acclaimed, and funny
and now all i want
is a beach front house to paint in
and a range rover
to listen to my music in,
cuz struggling fucking sucks hard
after the ninth package of ramen noodle soup.
i’m beau sia.
give me a chance,
and i’ll
change the world.

University of California-Irvine in Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1972)

William Pereira’s architecture apparently is fitting to double as an ape prison. View this on the map

That’s my alma mater!!!

Despite protests and lawsuits against them, Wal-Mart soft launched their Los Angeles Chinatown “Neighborhood Market” on Friday. Sigh.More on the launch and the fight against it in the LA Times.

shame. the capitalist race to the bottom continues at the expense of local small businesses and community welfare

At least they’ll have to pay their workers $10/hour bwahahah
