Mark: Drake may be the David Brent of rap, poorly integrating bizarrely corny and outdated references into his flow and then immediately explaining them to you. Consider: “Bout to set it off/Set It Off, Jada Pinkett:; “I can teach you how to speak my language/Rosetta Stone”; “Two thumbs up/Ebert and Roeper.” I have friends who’ve spit iller rhymes about their Photoshop skills, and I’m not even kidding.
Ben: Drake’s tendency to reduce similies to bullet points irritates the hell out of me too, but in the doughy-eyed Canuck’s defense, at least he’s making light of his frightful lack of personality and style. He comes to halfway through the chorus and mumbles in an autotuned daze: “I just can’t remember at all/what am I doing?/What am I doing?/Oh yeah, that’s right, I’m doing me.” And then he does a riff on the stunning opening verse from Dead Prez’s seminal hit “Hip Hop.” Canadians, even the ones who are rap stars, are self-effacing to a fault.
are there any tumblr's you can recommend that post insightful content, as well as fun stuff?
Off the back I’d say Brainfood, but you’re probably following her already. Aside from that, I’d say xionone and ticketsandpassports…can’t think of any others off the top of my head who’re a good mix of both.
Disclaimer: I’m only referring to bisexual women because, I don’t really know if the situation is the same for bisexual men.
So I was reading this article today and it got me thinking….In a way, I’ve kind of been a hypocrite. On one side, I’ve always been cool with being with a bisexual woman and thought there was something wrong with dudes who had a problem with it…like, your girl wants a girl…of course that’s hawt. But then on the other side, I’m all for a monogamous relationship, and those two ideas really are contradicting.
It seems like bisexual women, well, not all, but those that do this, get the best deal because they can get a guy and then if they feel to, get a woman for their pleasure. It’s kinda weird cause a bisexual person has an attraction not based on a gender, yet when it comes down to having fun outside of the relationship, it completely becomes a matter of gender…because of course they wouldn’t dare ask to fool around with another guy…The situation is only considered because it’s another woman they’re talking about.
Iono, shyt just made me think. Of course I know that being bisexual is just an attraction to both sexes and shouldn’t entitle you to mulitple partners unless it’s agreed upon, I just found it interesting how being bisexual can kinda be a legitimate loophole to a monogamous relationship.
I look at sites like Hypebeast and the crazy following they have and marvel at how amazing that is. Something that started as a small community of people who shared common interests in the street wear scene at the time grew into something enormous. Or like music. You find some unheard of artist, like their stuff, mention it on a blog/twitter/to a friend, they dig it, and do the same thing. Next thing you know, they’re the next big thing. It’s crazy. Basically what I’m saying is, if you have a passion, pursue it and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Anything is possible, anything can happen. Don’t be discouraged because popularity isn’t poppin’ from the jump, creating a legitimate following takes time and persistence, hang in there, you got this.
Small step for Evangel, giant step for Evangel kind.
So just when I was at the end of my rope with school and all the crap entailed with it, my professor offers me a job. Apparently publications needs a photographer and he’s recommending me for the position. I still have to interview and everything but as far as my work goes, I’m all good. He said he didn’t really have anyone else he felt was good for the position in school, and even cooler I seem to be the youngest one offered the job, the other folks he was mentioning that had the position did it as grads, he himself doing it when he was in grad school. So pretty much, I feel other side of the pillow cool right now…though school is still a piece of crap. I’ll just have health benefits now.
