3 of my fav Napoleon Hill quotes

"Man, alone, has the power to transform his thoughts into physical reality; man, alone, can dream and make his dreams come true."

"Action is the real measure of intelligence."

"Self-discipline begins with the mastery of your thoughts. If you don't control what you think, you can't control what you do. Simply, self-discipline enables you to think first and act afterward."

yup

janelle monae PT. 2

As an entertainer, she is like James Brown, but more jerky and futuristic. She even cites him as a major influence.

THIS MAN IZ FRESH...ROCK THE BELLS PICS NYC

Shame is a prison you know.
Yeah, well discretion is a fortress
You're starin and lookin too closely.
There's so much about me that I hide
That careful eyes will recognize.
Photobucket
If you look closely you'll notice
That the pattern on this soft cloth shirt
Is made of workin men's sweat
And prayin folk's tears.
If you look closer you'll notice
That this pattern resembles
Tenement row houses, project high rises,
Cell block tiers,
Discontinued stretches of elevated train tracks,
Slave ship gullies, acres of tombstones.
Photobucket
If you look closer, you'll notice
That this fabric has been carefully blended
With an advanced new age polymer (oh man, that's nice)
To make the fabric lightweight
Weatherproof, and durable.
All this to give some sort of posture and dignity
To a broken body that is a host for scars.
I am the new landmark. I am the museum of injury.
Soldiers visit me and admire me quietly,
Whispering amongst themselves. You're no soldier.
Your soft bright eyes never have to
Survey the battlefield,
Photobucket
Much less it's collected relics of which, I am one.
So, my flesh bullet-ridden remains hidden
Underneath these soft fabrics
Which I carefully select
That stand in for how I used to feel,
For how I remember feeling,
For how I dream about feeling,
For how I feel about you.
And now your curious fingers want to search
Beyond this tender armor.
I can't look at you right nowPhotobucket
dont really know the brand..but i think they kinda fresh and xtra..
Photobucket

Some Crazy Jews Protest Fresh Jive


JDL VS. FRESHJIVE. from Bobby Hundreds on VimeoThings seem to be heating up in Fairfax as recent pictures and videos produced by Bobby Hundreds feature a small group of protesters from the Jewish Defense League outside Freshjive’s Reserve store objecting to some recent t-shirt releases from Freshjive. The tees in question include the depiction of former Palestine leader and generally unpopular character Yasser Arafat and Palestinian children wielding AK-47s. On his blog, Freshjive founder Rick Klotz offers his own 2 cents on all the negativity surrounding his designs in a response that reveals his reasoning on why these designs should not be perceived as anti-Semitic (Rick Klotz himself is Jewish). However this whole situation shows the power of a graphic t-shirt as well as Freshjive’s continual brand philosophy of creating active discourse with his products.

R.I.P. Solve

Last Saturday night, on June 14th, the Chicago based street artist SOLVE was brutally - and senselessly - murdered in the city’s Logan Square neighborhood.

Brendon Scanlon (SOLVE) was much beloved and admired by the Chicago street art and graf community.

SOLVE had a big influence on the Chicago scene and helped a lot of young artists get their start.

Soulja Boy Vs. Ice T?

Okay..Im really not into rap beef, as I think its corny, unless it involves two lyrical people...but this is funny, so I had to post it...quick backstory...Ice T disses Soulja Boy...Soulja Boy responds and clowns him bad but towards the end, he makes some good points in my opinion...

Nike Id Expands...

Photobucket

As an extension of Nike iD, the footwear company has launched Nike PhotoiD, a mobile marketing campaign that allows consumers to customize their kicks with colors from the real world. Take a photo with a mobile phone, text message it to a designated number, and Nike will extract the two dominant colors from the scene to create a pair of classic 1985 Dunk high-top basketball sneakers.

The campaign, created by digital agency AKQA, is currently rolling out Europe-wide; no word on future availability in the US.

The Science of Getting Rich

Thinking in a Certain way does not require that you constantly repeat affirmations over and over again.

Or that you develop skills in concentration.

Thinking in a certain way does require that you imagine and put in your minds eye what you desire but it does not require to repeat over and over again in affirmations or to concentrate on it all the time.

Behind your clear vision must be the purpose to realize it; to bring it out in tangible expression.

And behind this purpose must be an invincible and unwavering FAITH that the thing is already yours; that it is “at hand” and you have only to take possession of it.

Live in the new house, be where you want in your career or passion, drive that new car ..mentally, until it takes form around you physically. In the mental realm, enter at once into full enjoyment of the things you want.
