I'm alive. I've been gone quite a while I know. But that's because I got all weird about writing blogs on the lostprophets web-site. I almost felt like I had to censor my opinions just incase they were taken as the opinion of the whole band. And such as I am not my brothers keeper, I don't wish them to be held responsible for my own ideas/opinions/insights/theories/artyfarty nonsense (which I must add, I am very capable of boring even the most polite and patient people with).
So, all in all, I am way more comfortable with this and hopefully, if I manage to pull my head from my own arse from time to time I will write something here. Not in the hope that anyone cares for what I think, nor because I have an agenda of any sort, simply because I can. And since everyone else is doing it, why the hell not. Its quite narcissistic in a sense, a way of putting yourself out there for someone in the secrecy and privacy of their room to see. Thats my take on it....a sort of "hey! check me out..I'm important aren't I!...aren't I?" Sad and ironic in a way, that nowadays people crave acceptance and attention from the solitude of a lonely room. They pull up a single chair and log on to see if anyone cares to want to know or hear them. Me...until now, I have tried to do all of that in the tangible world, but Tao can only lead me so far...and when the rest of the dudes (as I shall call them) are permanently logged in and logged on around me...well, I just follow suit.
.....and that is why I like this blog thingy as a link...haha. What a bunch of old pretentious bollocks...and thats ok though.... right? I mean I can write and say what the fuck I want. And It just falls back on me. That's pretty nifty.
SO, whats new in the life of me..the rapper from loztprofitz...um, well..I have been having some nice weekends away from the garage doing my own thing, mostly trying to get a bit of surf in, and riding my scooter up and down the coast. I went on my second rally yesterday with a bunch of scooterists from the Westside Scooter Club (that's the one I am in) and The Reflections society from up Hollywood way. We joined forces and did a run up along the Sunset strip all the way to the sea. It was a fairly big bunch of us and a few brave dudes, holding traffic so we could go along without stopping at lights etc. A fun day was had by all.
In the weekdays before going to the garage to write, Mike and I have been trying to get a few hours in the sea. The water is still a bit cold but getting warmer, and the San Diego waves are way better than up north...sorry, but its true. The days we have been out, we've had a ball and touch wood, so far no major injuries or runnings with local gangs..if that kinda shit still goes on...you can tell I've been geeking out on the whole Z-boys. I'm stoked (yeah..I said stoked..so what?) cos my short (slightly shorter) boarding is progressing slowly (very slowly). I did a few carves (by carves I mean turns..and by few I mean one) the other morning for the first time, and somewhere in my head a penny dropped and I thing I figures something out. All I have to do now is figure out what that thing is and how to use it.. voila!
Shit...I'm going on and on again. Have to get up in a few hours to have my ass handed to me by the ocean so best I get some rest. Hopefully, I'll try and write again tomorrow or the next, but.....what is it they say...don't hold your breath..whoever YOU happen to be.
Oh, yeah, if you are gonna comment, be nice, I'm new to this, cut me some slack, also don't take this or me too seriously..as its just a bit of fun. I don't wanna get into any pointless runnings with people, and get all hot headed and start ranting (like some people I know), basically if you don't like what I have to say or don't really agree... save that thought, log it, come say hi to me next time you see me in the street and we'll have it out...in the appropriate manner. until then see if you can suck it up and be all positive and polite like how your parents would like you to be. good.
