Hey, I'm a big Fan

Aight so this one has been a long time comin'. What's goin' on folks?

So lately a lot of different people have been coming up to me and telling me that they enjoy, read, have read, or like my blog. Like I told my homie Hadassa, it's both appreciated and quite refreshing. It's actually refreshing because so often I feel "Pfft, I'm just writing to vent, because I'm sure no one is reading" but those days are no more, because I see now that I have a following... So to all of you who read and follow or just stop by periodically, thank you. I can't thank you enough, and I greatly appreciate your time spent with me.

On that same note I wanted to share my admiration for others with you. So by now I'm sure you know I am an up and coming photographer and like in any other industry there are millions of people who do it/have done it way before me. So naturally I am a fan of those who came before me and have paved the way for me to do what I know have a deep passion for.

That's the purpose of this blog post:
I wanted to share with ya'll the Photographers who I look up to and who's work I admire. Some day I hope to be as good as all these guys:

Chris (CFK Photography):
My mentor and partner, I wanna thank you for taking me under the wing homie, I've learned a lot of things from you that I will continue to appreciate til the end of my journey in this game. I love being your assistant because I see what the game is about from both perspectives, both the outsider and the actual insider. Plus we just getting started baby! The 250+ Boys bout to take over this game as if it were stolen from us!
I want ya to check out Chris' work, It's amazing!

Poppa Purp:
Yo man, I remember when I met you back in late 07 you were just the cool skinny nigga at work who didn't say much. lol Well I never been one to judge a book by a cover, In fact unless its a picture book I don't even look at it! So I knew "that Skinny, quite nigga got a story to tell" and boy was I right! You did/do have a story brother, and its being told through the lens of that Beautiful Canon you carry around! MUCH RESPECT to you my nigga, you say you just a nigga with a camera and a golden eye, either way I'm a fan bruh.
Check out my man's page

Josh:
Another one who I didn't know took pictures, lol you already know brother, I saw you and I thought: "this man has to be a fashion designer of some sort, and he got wild bread too" lmao. But I guess Real recognize real and it wasn't long before I realized that those Black and white image on your site were all yours. You never stop amazing me bruh, keep doin it, you already a problem, I can only imagine what you can do with more time and effort.
Josh doesn't have a Photographer site that I am aware of but ya NEED to check out his blog
http://streetetiquette.com/

Rich:
Lemme tell you a story.... back in the break room at work where/when I was testing my new Sony Digi Cam you took the camera out of my hands and started messing with the settings. Once you were done you placed the camera where you wanted it for the angle of your shot and took a pic of your 'Waterproof Air Forces' (Sneakers for those of you who are not aware of the lingo). It wasn't a big deal to you, but seeing the angle, and the final shot I thought: "If he can do that with this camera, I'm sure I can too" now a little over a year later that slight inspiration has grown to a bigger passion for photography. Plus ya self portraits be ILLMATIC! lol

Boogie:
Who know's if your reading this lol, but here's the deal. on August 15th, 2008 while walking around Soho with Rich I walked into a clothing store that just so happened to have a table of books. Amongst all the books with colorful covers the one that stood out the most was the one with a black and white cover depicting what many would call the "Gang Life" with a few young men on of which was pointing at the camera with a gun. Instantly I knew I had to have this book of pictures which all told stories. I didn't have the money on me that day but you better believe after a year of looking for it afterwords I found it. I loved it because it was so out of the ordinary. Til this day I go through it in amazement and I continue to love yor work and your style of Photography. I sent you an email one time and you wrote back, being written back showed me you were humble and I both appreciated it and Respected it, For that I thank you.
To see Boogie's work go to his site
http://www.artcoup.com/

Last but not Least

Tone:
I've been a fan of your work literally before I knew it was your work lol. See I would always see pictures of Poppa Purp at Sway.... I remember always thinking: "Who is taking all of these amazing clear, vivid perfectly colored pics?" lol Not long after I started doing my research and was left speechless. From the portraits of artist who I like and events that I wish I had made it out to, you have been there to capture moments in time and to me it's no different than watchin Micheal Jordan take flight. Dead ass. Another man who I haven't met personally (it's just you and boogie who I don't know personally) but I sent you a text the other day and I appreciated the fact that you took the time to text me back.... I know your work as well as the work of all the aforementioned men will only continue to get better. So thank you for being one of the best who I look up to in this game.
Tone's site is
http://www.photobytone.com/

So I wanna thank all of ya. As competitive as this game is I just look at ya'll as big brothers here to make sure I take the right path and remember to keep my heart in it. I can't think of anything else to say but thanks lol

Everyone else, I'm sure your aware i rarely if ever link other people's site on my blog, so if I'm doin it you know its for a reason, so check their links out Now! lol


Stay Up and Stay Tuned!

R.I.P Aaliyah

Baby Girl
Aaliyah

I just wanted to say a few words for Aaliyah. today marked 8 years since she passed. there's not much i can say that wasn't already said in my black history month post about her, just that I was a huge fan, and i loved her music. Til this day songs like '4 page letter' 'If your girl only Knew' still make get me, and I just feel she was gone too soon. Who knows where her career would be if she were still around. Well that's all I wanted to say.

R.I.P Baby Girl
you'll always be Missed.

The Calm before the Storm

What's good folks? I know I've been neglectful for the past couple of days, and I apologize to my followers for the slight drought. But as for my birthday and the past week, I will tell you: IT WAS DOPE! I gotta admit I expected a few people to flake but I was shown Love by 99% of the people invited. Even people that I didn't know showed up to support the kid. There's pics but I don't have any of em (I refused to take my camera) and I don't feel like copying and Pasting all the ones of me up on FaceBook lol.

But aside from that, my one year Blog Anniversary is coming up on the 24th! Needless to say I am excited, except I'm not sure what direction I wanna take the post in. So in the mean time I wanna leave ya with some deep words...

"Cannibalism is livin in my metabolism, givin em spasms and aneurysms at baby Baptisms!"

lol. 5 dollars to the first person to tell me where that quote is from. Folks it's obvious i'm saving the good for the anniversary. So please be patient and bare with me, I promise it's gonna be good.

Stay Up and Stay Tuned!

MY BIRTHDAY!

Nah, it's not today, but it's comin soon!

^^Be There or be Rhombus Baby!^^

Whats good ya'll? I'm sure your not aware of this because up until now my birthday hasn't been nearby for you to know, but my Birthday is a HUGE deal to me! lol

Since I was a kid August 14Th has meant more to me than most if not all holidays of the year! The reason for that being that it's the day that marks the anniversary of you leaving another body and entering this world. To me that's amazing and is something I can't really express with words. Anyway, this year I haven't been going in like I usually do: Signs all over the house hinting that my birthday is coming, text blasts telling everyone that I don't want to see their face, all I want is money! (I don;t really mean this, but really I do, feel me?) and other bizarre things of that nature. I guess the reason for me not being as excited as past years is because I've already been 21 years old for 363 days. Lemme tell you, I'm TIRED of clubbin lol. But it's my birthday nonetheless and you better believe I'm taking it serious.

Something always happens on my birthday, whether it be that it rains (happens every year, I can set my clock by it) or there's a Black Out (happened on my 16th Birthday -- 2003, Google it) but I don't care, this year like all others my intention is to go Balls Deep!

For my 22nd, I plan on partying with all the ones I Love: my friends and OF COURSE without a doubt my Family! We're gonna be at the China Club on Friday night, and we going to 6 Flags the next morning. It's gonna be dope, add in a few factors that shall not be mentioned and you can rest assured my 22nd is gonna be bigger than my 21st, and my 21st was BIG!

So if your in the city that night, come through and party with us! I'm posting this now because I don't know how many pictures are gonna be taken throughout the duration of the weekend festivities (I don't think I'm carrying the camera) , and I know I'm gonna be wasted throughout the whole thing, so I probably won't be in the condition to post till maybe Wednesday.... lol

With that said, BE THERE!
Stay up and Stay Tuned Folks!

Is this Politically Correct?

Welcome back Folks!

One thing you should know about your Host (myself) is that I am a firm believer in practicing discretion, but speaking my mind has always been encouraged by my mom.

Lately tho I've been thinking: Whats so wrong with saying certain things? See I was just sitting around on the stoop the other day when one of my boys (who shall remain nameless) asked a young lady from the neighborhood "Can I touch your Butt? I'm not gonna squeeze it or rub it, I just want to put my hand on It" She laughed hysterically but eventually caved in and said "Okay" and pointed her rump in the direction of my homeboy's hand. I jokingly asked "Whats up? Can, I get next?" she said yes, but that's neither here nor there! lol

The point of my post is simple. As people living in a new era, we shouldn't be so quickly offended by things so small as words... I mean think about it, they teach us the rhyme at an early age "Sticks and Stones may break my Bones, but words will never hurt me." This quote does today and always will stand to be true. My boy's question/statement led me to think a whole bunch of other things to say to women. With ALL due respect of course but taboo things nonetheless.

So I decided to take this to the streets (FaceBook) and asked the ladies: "Would it really be that bad if I said: 'I'd really like to see you naked?" This immediately struck fire and grew to something big lol. Today I posted another one of the same kind! It seems most people find it humorous but still would rather not hear certain things be said. My one and only question ladies, is "WHY?" C'mon people, words are just and always will be, Just words. If I said "I'd love to see you naked" I am not suggesting that you disrobe before me, nor am I saying I will see you naked, I'm just saying what I'm thinking. Not that that's always right either but I'm just saying that certain things should not be taken so serious nor taken too far.

At the end of the day, you should know that I am a respectful young man ho loves women and would never intentionally disrespect any one of them. Chances are I won't approach you and tell you or ask you the thing's I've said unless I already know you, but keep an open mind, sometimes its as simple as ignoring what someone says. Do you really want your day ruined by word?

Lemme know how you feel folks!
Stay Up, and Stay Tuned...

Lets Talk About Sex Baby! (The Survey)

Aight, so my homegirl Reese (http://sweetinsanityandsarcasm.blogspot.com/?zx=71c2f15e2fd7115b) who's blog I follow posted this last night and tagged me. I'm no stranger to online surveys but I rarely take part in them... But this one tickled my fancy, so I figured why not?

and it goes a lil something like this....

1. Is there any type of sexual act you're embarrassed to ask for? (If so, what? )
No there isn't. I feel once we're already doing the do, and its understood this is what we're here for there's no longer a reason for the shy guy act. Ya dig?




2. Have you ever dumped someone purely because of bad sexual performance?
Nah, the sex was great, but it wasn't often.... Take that how you want it!

3. Name something you would say no to if asked to do in bed.
I'm not eatin ya ass, you aint eatin mine, you tryna put a strap on and going to work on me is an automatic "GET THE F*&^ OUTTA MY HOUSE," there will be no fecal matter released on my bed, hittin me is fine but none of that tying me up and spankin me mess!

4. The three words that best describe you in bed are ____, ____, and ____.
Come on over here and find out!

5. Have you ever been so emotionally moved by a sexual experience (in a good way), that you cried?
Nah, lol, do guys cry after, during or from sex?

Bonus (as in optional): What could your partner bring to bed that would most turn you on?
Her Naked Ass! True Story

you know we like to have fun here on Tha Bull pen Folks, so keep comin back, I love all ya!
Stay Up, and Stay Tuned!

Men are Dogs (?)

Easy Fellas, you know I have a penis that I'm very proud of, I would never throw the gender under the bus like that!

Now ladies, this one is more so aimed towards you.

So today and many other days while I was walking Juno, I passed a few young ladies in the park. One of them looks at me and asks me as I walk passed her "Does he bite?" Naturally my first thought is to reply by saying "Yes she does, that's how she eats her food" but you and I know what she meant by that was 'will she bite (me)?'. So I then replied by sayin, "No SHE does not." Now this disturbs me, men and women do it alike, assume that my lovable little Pitbull is a male. But you see a guy assuming that my dog is a male is simply his macho side wanting to relate to the dogs masculinity, whereas a female.... now that's a different story.

Aight so I could be wrong, and please remember that this is just my opinion... but it seems to me that a female automatically assumes that any dog is a male because sub conscientiously for whatever reason, she feels men are dogs! Am I right or am I wrong? Is it really that bad ladies? I mean my dog is only different than you because she smells a lil funny and because she walks on all fours. But she is affectionate, she is caring, and one day she will bare offspring making her a giver of life, no different then you beautiful women out there. So all I'm asking is am I right or wrong? Do you assume that Juno is a male because the you feel men are dogs and so instantly make that connection, bottom line? Or is it just because at first glance you haven't realized that she doesn't have any junk? Please feel free to share your responses with me either via a comment or feel free to hit me up.
