“Motherfucking cock sucker motherfucking shit fucker, what am I doing? What am I doing? I don’t know what I’m doing. I’m doing the best that I can. I know that’s all I can ask of myself. Is that good enough? Is my work doing any good? Is anyone paying attention? Is it hopeless to try and change things? The african guy is a sign, right? Because if he isn’t, than nothing in this world makes any sense to me. I’m fucked. Maybe I should just quit. Don’t quit! Maybe I should just fucking quit. Don’t fucking quit! I’m fucked. I don’t know what the fuck to fucking do anymore. Fucker. Fuck, shit!”

I highly suggest seeing this movie, if you haven't already. It has a great message. I'm mega into existentialism, and that's what this movie is all about. If you don't get existentialism, you probably won't get much of this movie. It is very humorous though, regardless. Peep peep!

Bubbles!!!!!

Posted in do work, Funsies, love, Recipe, sharebear, wantwantwant, yumyumz by Jessica on December 23, 2009

I’ve been craving bubble tea like a muhfucka lately! Haven’t had it in like a year and it’s killing me. Taro, preferably. Need to pay a visit to Aki asaps. I wish I was still living in Brooklyn/Manhatt so I can go to St.’s Alp Teahouse every day of my life!

Found a recipe, and I think I’m going to attempt this soon!

Bubble Tea Recipe:

2.2 lbs bubble tea powder (approximately 45-50 (16oz.) bubble teas)

Taro bubble tea is also a top seller worldwide. Taro is a root similar to sweet potato. The purple color makes it a favorite “pretty” drink, but a “tasty” creamy drink with a hint of taro flavoring.

Preparation (16oz serving):
(Scoop is provided FREE of charge with purchase of this powder – $1.99 value)

16oz Bubble Tea Flavored Powder Drink
———————————
1 Scoop Bubble Tea Flavored Powder
1 Scoop Non-Dairy Powder or Refined Creamer powder
1 Scoop Sweetener (sugar syrup, fructose, Hawaiian cane sugar or sugar)
3/4 cup water
1 cup ice
2 fl. oz. of cooked Bubble Tea Tapioca Pearls

1) Put all ingredients except tapioca into shaker and shake it up.
2) Make sure that the flavored powder and creamer is mixed well.
3) Add bubble tea tapioca pearls to a cup, and pour your drink over.
4) Put in your big fat bubble tea straw and enjoy.

*Add more flavored powder and creamer for thicker drink.

16oz Ice-Blended Fresh Fruit Drink
———————————
1 Scoop Bubble Tea Flavored Powder
1 Scoop Non-Dairy Powder or Refined Creamer powder
1 Scoop Sweetener (sugar syrup, fructose, Hawaiian cane sugar or sugar)
1/2 cup fresh fruit
1/4 cup crushed ice
2 fl. oz. of cooked Bubble Tea Tapioca Pearls

1) Put bubble tea flavored powder, creamer, sweetener and fresh fruit into the blender for 20 seconds or until blended well.
2) Blend the drink less if you like little pieces of fruit.
3) Add tapioca pearls to a cup, and pour your drink over.
4) Put in your big fat bubble tea straw and enjoy.

CUSTOMIZE YOUR ORDER (and save)

Options:
1) Powder Only
2) Add 6.6lb bag of Award-Winning Tapioca Pearls and a pack of 45-50 Fat Bubble Tea Straws
3) Add 6.6lb bag of Award-Winning Tapioca Pearls
4) Add a pack of 45-50 Fat Bubble Tea Straws

Totally in love with this dude, Yuksek.
I might be a little late on this, but whatevs.
Haling from Reims, France, Yuksek has crafted some dirty ass remixes of songs og by Mika, The Kaiser Chefs, and Ghostface Killah. His new album, “Away From the Sea” features the love of my life, Amanda Blank, on the track “Extra Ball”. His other tracks are equally wonderful, and totally dance worthy!
CHECK HIM OUT!

Hellz x Reebok

Posted in dope, fashion, Hellz Bellz, love, Reebok, sexy, sharebear, sneakers, wantwantwant by Jessica on November 24, 2009

Photobucket

As Hellz continues to grow in the fashion industry, collaborating with some of the industries biggest moguls Hellz is extremely proud to present the Hellz x Reebok collaboration shoe, dropping Friday, November 27th.

This highly anticipated model features a fold-down flap which Hellz has utilized as a focal point with pixelated images on a clean black perforated leather upper. It comes with optional shoe string colors (black and neon yellow), stud detailing and a punk rock attitude to go along with it. Creating a bond between the women’s brand and one of the sneaker world’s timeless leaders has become a stepping stone for Hellz to branch off into footwear.
Although there is such a high demand for the collaboration, the shoe will only be available to the public at select retailers, as well as the Hellz soon-to-drop online shop. If purchased through the Hellz online shop, customers will receive a special gift.

Hellz is widely known for providing style savvy women with unique attire, and enthralling collaborations. The Hellz x Reebok shoe, being one, is sure to not disappoint; creating a much more enticing reason to wait for Black Friday.

Sharebear: Sweatheart

“Philadelphia-based filth-rock collective Sweatheart specializes in raunchy club/pop with titles like “Fingerbangin'” and “Dreambeaver.” Formed by visual artists Thom Lessner and Rose Luardo in 2005, Sweatheart’s debut album, So Cherri, was released on Tone Arm Records in the summer of 2006. The band further included Amanda Blank by this time, along with their backing band “The Toddlers.” ~ James Christopher Monger, All Music Guide

I’ve loved this band for awhile now. They’re so great. Dress-up bands are great fun and me and some of my broads actually have a project lined up… but that’s a secret for now.
Sweatheart has fun, dancey, vulgar songs. “Finger bangin'” being my favorite. They’ve always got great costume themes too.
Especially love that my future ex-girlfriend, Amanda Blank (rapper/singer), is in this band. she’s so talented. When I saw her live, i was in love. prettiest lady ever, in my opinion.

Here be some flicks and videos.

I’d rather be alone, then listen to the crowd.
Your voice spews louder than anyone else.
Your voice makes me want to vomit.
I would vomit up all the lies I took in from you.
I’d rub your face in it.
Then I’d feed you some of my lies.
Since you thought I was bullshit anyway, right?
If that’s what you expect from me, don’t worry… I won’t disappoint!

I love my best friend, Lauren aka Sneak, more than anyone in the whole world. We’ve known each other since we were 12, and she’s been there for me for literally all of my downfalls since then. Ups, downs, in betweens. This girl is my life.

so, i need tattoo work. specifically need my candyland sleeve worked on. it’s time to pay a visit to my Kyley soon!

she does great work, I suggest you get your ink done by her. You won’t be disappointed.

Another thing I want to do, is get extensions again.

One of my best friends, Shamsa, does them… so I’ll be forcing her to do so in the near future. I get so bored with my hair and need to change it constantly. Shamsa cut it into an asymmetrical style about a month ago, and it already grew out. my hair grows like a damn weed. After I let it grow for awhile, I think I’ll do something like this to it:

“Crank Heart” -Xiu Xiu (one of my favorite songs ever!)

“Xiu Xiu (pronounced “shew shew”) is an experimental band originally from San Jose, California and currently based in Oakland, California. The band is named after the main character of the 1998 Chinese film Tian yu (a.k.a. Xiu Xiu: The Sent-Down Girl).”

I highly suggest getting into all of their music. It’s definitely not for everyone, but for those who it is for, it will blow your mind!

“Wolf Like Me” – TV on the Radio

will never everevereverevereverever get sick of this song. it’s amazetits, and always will be.

Say, say, my playmate
wont you lay hands on me
mirror my malady
transfer my tragedy

Got a curse I cannot lift
shines when the sunset shifts
when the moon is round and full
gotta bust that box, gotta gut that fish

My mind’s aflame

We could jet in a stolen car
but I bet we wouldn’t get too far
before the transformation takes
and blood lust tanks and
crave gets slaked

My mind has changed
my body’s frame, but god I like it
my hearts aflame
my body’s strained, but god I like it

My mind has changed
my body’s frame, but god I like it
my hearts aflame
my body’s strained, but god I like it

Charge me your day rate
ill turn you out in kind
when the moon is round and full
gonna teach you tricks that’ll blow your
mongrel mind
baby doll I recognize
you’re a hideous thing inside
if ever there were a lucky kind it’s
you you you you

I know its strange another way to get to know you
you’ll never know unless we go so let me show you
I know its strange another way to get to know you
we’ve got till noon here comes the moon
so let it show you
show you now

Dream me, oh dreamer
down to the floor
open my hands and let them
weave onto yours

Feel me, completer
down to my core
open my heart and let it
bleed onto yours

Feeding on fever
down all fours
show you what all that
howl is for

Hey hey my playmate
let me lay waste to thee
burned down their hanging trees
it’s hot here hot here hot here hot here

Got a curse we cannot lift
shines when the sunset shifts
there’s a cure comes with a kiss
the bite that binds the gift that gives

now that we got gone for good
writhing under your riding hood
tell your gra’ma and your mama too
it’s true
we’re howling forever

Artist of the Week: Saul Williams

Posted in art, Artist of the Week, dope, love, music, my heart, Saul Williams, sharebear, video, youtube by Jessica on September 23, 2009

This dude has a way with words. He’s such a poet. One of my favorites. And his music is amazing. I suggest you take a listen, you’ll learn something.
I remember when I heard him for the first time, around 2004, i believe. I was in my friend’s car, when I lived in Florida. We were on our way home from the bar and he put this fucking beautiful song on. It was, “Tao of Now” by Saul Williams and featuring Esthero (who i love, as well), and I immediately fell head over heels in love with it. Been following his work ever since.
I even love his version of U2’s “Sunday Bloody Sunday”, and I loathe U2, as well as most covers. But this one done did it.
So in conclusion, get up on your Saul Williams knowledge.

“disco dance with you (remix)”- Teki Latex f/ Spank Rock & Amanda Blank

“Teki Latex, lead lothario of French electro-rap crew TTC and sonic proprietor of Institubes and Sound Pellegrino. Armed with a mission to “be innovative in this world of Elves dressed like The Strokes,” Teki tends towards ATL-gone-sci-fi, blending Ralph Lauren, Nikes, golf caps and edgier, textured embellishments—the odd Sixpack scarf or knitted socks from Henrik Vibskov. Our current favorite is a look he titles “Major Blazer,” a combo of cardinal blue deck shoes and tailored Lauren blazer flossed with a black silk Roc Star square as a shawl. It’s not stuffy prep so much as “classy in the club,” perfect for transitioning from daytime on Harvard yard to a nighttime rave on a boat.”

-via Fader

This song totally makes me want to dance my ass off. Even now, although I’m a sick puppy complete with swollen eyes, sore throat, stuffy nose, pounding headache, and a fever, to top it off.
But this brightens up my day.
And of course it helps that Spank & Amanda are in this remix.
