PLEASANTON CAR SHOW

LAST SUNDAY THE LADIES AND I CHECKED OUT THE HOT ROD CAR SHOW IN PLEASANTON... IT WAS HELLA HOT, I COULDN'T STOP SWEATING! BUT I DID HAVE SOME DELICIOUS FAIR SNACKS LIKE CORN DOGS, KETTLE POPCORN, AND BEER... UMMM COLD BEER IS GOOD IN 100DEGREE WEATHER.

                         
MI JEFA (BOSS LADY) KIM AND I SITTING IN THE LOVELY SHADE ...
THE LADIES LOOKING HELLA CUTE... COMO SIEMPRE!
POSING NEXT TO SOME DOPE ASS CARS... MAN IF MY HOUSE HAD A GARAGE I WOULD BE SO DOWN TO GETTING AN OLD SCHOOL RANFLA AND FIXING IT UP... HELL YEAH, THEN CRUSE THE BOULEVARD WITH THE BREEZYS!!!  

ONE OF THESE DAYS I'M GONNA OWN ONE OF THESE CARS... I CAN'T WAIT IT'S GONNA BE HELLA DOPE!

CULTURE SKATE

CULTURE SKATE IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE SKATE SHOPS IN THE CITY (SF). THE HOMIES TERRY AND CHRIS WORK THERE, AND ARE ALWAYS KIND ENOUGH TO SMOKE ME OUT IN THEIR NICE BACK YARD. NOW THAT'S CUSTOMER SERVICE! BUT FOR REALS, THEY'RE ALL ABOUT THE GREEN... AND BY THAT I MEAN HEMP, ORGANIC, BAMBOO, RECYCLE, REDUCE, RE-USE. THEY ARE VERY ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIENCE, AND BELIEVE IN ENLIGHTENING  THE MIND, BODY AND SOUL. ALL THE CLOTHING SOLD THERE IS ORGANIC AND MADE FROM HEMP. MY FAVORITE PART OF THE STORE OTHER THAN THEIR CHILL BACKYARD IS THEIR DOPE REGGAE MUSIC SELECTION FOR SALE. 
THEY HAVE MONTHLY ART SHOWS AT THE SHOP... AND FOR THE AUGUST SHOW THEY ASKED MY BOO TO DO A GRAFF PIECE IN THEIR BACK YARD. I'M NOT SAYING THIS BECAUSE HE'S MY BOYFRIEND, BUT MY BOO IS HELLA TALENTED. HE HAS AMAZING CAN CONTROL AND CAN WHIP OUT A PIECE IN NO TIME... HE'S BEEN DOING THIS FOR YEARS, AND YEARS... AND IT SHOWS.
IT WAS LIKE A RAINBOW OF COLORS...
MY BOO (GERMS) DOING HIS THANG...
THE FINAL RESULT (BOTTOM PIECE).  

IF YOU'RE DOWN IN THE MISSION (VALENCIA @ DUBOCE) CHECK THEM OUT.. THEY'RE TOTALLY CHILL AND POSITIVE FOLKS. GO AHEAD CULTURE SKATE!!!

Delinquent Habits

( VIDEO ABOVE- DELINQUENT HABITS " LOWER EAST SIDE" 1996)

( VIDEO ABOVE- DELINQUENT HABITS "TRES DELINQUENTES" 1996 )

OH MAN, OH MAN, OH MAN... THIS WAS THE VERY FIRST ALBUM (DELINQUENT HABITS 1996) MY FOLKS TOOK AWAY FROM ME AND WOULD NOT GIVE BACK, THEY TREW IT AWAY! CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT? I WAS IN SIXTH GRADE AND TRYING TO SLOWLY EASE MY PARENTS INTO LETTING ME BUMP RAP/HIP-HOP IN THE HOUSE... THEY WERE USED TO ME LISTENING TO OLDIES, FUNK AND RANCHERAS. I WOULD BUMP THIS SHIT HELLA LOUD, AND  THE THING WAS THAT IT HAD SPANISH WORDS/LINGO AND MY PARENTS KNEW EXACTLY WHAT THEY WERE SAYING. IT WAS WEAK! THE FOLKS ARE COOL WITH IT NOW... THEY KINDA HAVE TO WITH FIVE YOUNG DAUGHTERS, AND YOU KNOW WE ALL LOVE THOSE DOPE BEATS!

MENTIROSA


I HAVE THE WORST MEMORY WHEN IT COMES TO MOVIES AND SONG LYRICS...MAYBE CUZ I'M SUCH A BREEZY... NAWWW, IT'S CUZ I'M SUCH A POTHEAD. ANYWAYS, THERE'S ONLY A FEW SONGS WHOSE LYRICS I KNOW WORD BY WORD. ONE OF THOSE SONGS IS "MENTIROSA" ( 1989), BY MELLOW MAN ACE (ULPIANO SERGIO REYES). HE IS ONE OF THE ORIGINAL MEMBERS OF THE RAP GROUP "CYPRESS HILL"... HE'S THE YOUNGER BROTHER OF CYPRES HILL'S  MEMBER "SEN DOG". THEY WERE BORN IN CUBA, BUT RAISED IN SOUTH GATE, LOS ANGELES. ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS I LOVE THIS SONG, AND WHY THE WORDS ARE EMBEDDED IN MY BRAIN IS BECAUSE THE LYRICS ARE IN MY LANGUAGE "SPANGLISH". I KNOW YOU REMEMBER THE LYRICS TOO... READY? IT GOES A LITTLE SOMETHINGS LIKE THIS... CHECK THIS OUT BABY, TENEMOS TREMENDO LIO... (CONTINUE TO VIDEO ABOVE)

SELENA




UMMM... I LOVE SELENA, HANDS DOWN... ALWAYS AND FOREVER! IT'S BEEN 13 YEARS SINCE SHE PASSED, AND SHE'S CONSTANTLY ON MY MIND... NOT ONLY BECAUSE SHE WAS ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS, BUT BECAUSE PEOPLE ALWAYS SAY I LOOK LIKE HER... FOR EXAMPLE, I HAD A DENTIST APPOINTMENT YESTERDAY, AND WHILE MY DENTIST CAREFULLY DRILLED THE FUCK OUT OF MY TOOTH, HE  COMPLIMENTED ME ON MY LIQUID EYELINER AND HUGE CHOLA EARRINGS... BUT ALSO SAID I LOOKED LIKE SELENA. I WAS LIKE "WHATTT?" CAN YOU PLEASE CONCENTRATE ON MY TOOTH AND  NOT MY MAKE-UP DUDE.  I DON'T CONSIDER MYSELF FUGLY BUT I DO NOT HAVE SELENA'S BOOTYLICIOUS BODY... I MEAN WHAT DID HER PARENTS FEED HER? ANYWAYS, IT'S AN HONOR TO BE COMPARED TO SELENA LOOK WISE. HERE ARE A FEW OF HER VIDEO PERFORMANCES TO REMIND US OF WHY SELENA IS, AND FOREVER WILL BE THE QUEEN OF TEX-MEX!!! R.I.P. SELENA!!!!

PS. WITH OUT SELENA THERE WOULD BE NO J.LO... BIATCH!!!
