transferring mental and internal creativity into a tangible reality is what separates innovators from dreamer's (lost in the clouds). The question, we all, atleast those that are eclectically and creatively minded, must all seek to answer through our life(style) rather than rhetoric and thought.

Drew Stanton is a very talented young man trying to find his place in this world of entertainment. Recently Drew has denounced the normality of his locks, and I might say that it has literally sparked an outrage among his peers. Hair is hair in my book, unaware of the existences of other people’s thoughts and emotions Drew continues to do Drew. I’m excited about what’s in store for this man.
Keep in touch with Drew @

It's hard being a manBeing a bread winning man
Cause everybody takes
And never wishes to understand
It's hard being a man
Being their shoulder and their tissue
Cause once they've cried they don't wish to hear your issues
It's hard being a man
Being forced to hide your emotion
Cause if you break down
Then your considered weak in every notion
It's hard being a man
Being a pride bearing man
Cause when you really need help
You refuse the helping handIt's hard being a man
Being a God fearing man
Cause at the end of the day
It's hard to see his planIt's hard being a man
Cause at the end of the day
No one really understands
Just how hard it is
To really be a man

Steven Lopez and Erykah Badu collection

Steven Lopez has always been fond of art. He found himself drawn to murals, paintings, sculptures, music and other art forms at a very young age. He loved to draw as a child and loved to listen to inspirational music. After High School Lopez made a solo move to Oregon to attend college. He graduated in 2000 with a degree in Fine Arts.

The support that he received during college became the catalyst that would move his talents forward. With guidance and encouragement from friends, professors and classmates, Lopez began sharing his art with the public. He had his first opening in 1998 at the Cannibal Flower Gallery and has had continued success with several openings since. The amazing experiences and interactions during this period of his life cultivated life long relationships that still inspire his work.

Early on Lopez discovered that Jazz, Funk, Soul and Hip-Hop seemed to be ingrained into his very being. Not only did these influences release his creativity, they brought it to life. You can still see this in his respected graffiti art, as well as in his unique contemporary style that has become the “After Midnight Series”.

Lopez has had his art featured in Los Angeles at the Grind Gallery, Fenario Gallery, Nucleus Gallery and the Blue Bird Gallery. He has also worked with big names like Reebok, Nestle, X-Games, Coachella, Vans, Sims, United Way, Spy Optic and countless music videos and hotels. He has also made appearances on Fuel TV, BBC and the Discovery Channel.

Lopez’s work is still inspired by relationships he cultivates with people, music, and art. What he learns from people and life experience is the foundation of his work. His formula is and always will be story, substance and then style.

Copied straight from, This is Hilarious!!!!!

Gary Coleman was just quoted saying something about his marriage being in trouble because of his new role in a movie. He plays a porn mogul in the new role, people:


blames his demeaning new movie role as a ‘midget’ porn-mogul for putting a strain on his marriage, and he’s on the hunt for the agent who advised him to take the part. The pint-sized actor’s new film Midgets vs. Mascots is scheduled to premiere at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival this month April (09). Coleman stars as a miniature adult film mogul in the project but insists he only took the part to cope with mounting expenses during the worldwide credit crunch. The actor and wife Shannon Price appeared on U.S. TV show Divorce Court last April (08) to air their differences with intent to save their marriage. In a rant posted on video sharing
website, Coleman blames the film for causing strain in their relationship. And he’s issued a violent warning to the agent who helped him land the part. Coleman says, “It was worse than any film school project. I shouldn’t be in this movie in the first place, but the mortgage keeps coming. This movie almost cost me my relationship with my wife. It has caused me grief… I’m going to bash my fists right in my agent’s face.” Coleman and Price married in August 2007 after a five-month courtship.

Can't Fight The Fate

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.... Brilliant, sublime,eccentric yet necessary MOVIE!

The movie encompasses so much, you can watch it endlessly with a quest for deeper symbolism each time

Regret...why do people have regrets? The shoulda, coulda, woulda's and only if's, and the if I could only (take it back)- consume us so much that we are blinded by the inevitability of LIFE. We can't alter fate, run from it, hide or eradicate what is already written. The movie seeks to expose and encourage ppl about such a harsh yet honest truth and sublime reality. Reality, why can't we deal with our own individual reality's? The ability to erase from one's memory what we regret occured is cheating the challenge of life. And the Eternal Sunshine acknowledges destiny and reminisces on the reflection of a couples love as Jim Carey's character realizes he doesn't want to destroy his most fondest experiences, the good and the bad. The good tends to outweigh the bad, simply because the good is sooo .... (flippin) Good, so genuine and perfect for what it is, the good- are experiences that cant be replaced, moments you wish you could hold on to for eternity but instead you lock them in your mental cavities to reflect upon when in need of a smile or some light on the dark, cruel days. The bad memories, are so necessary, they are essential to the appreciation of the Good, (bittersweet). Clementine erased Jim Carey or Joe(?) Barish from her mind with the expectation of never commencing in a commitment with him again or even being aware of his existence and yet inevitably they end up back together again. Jim Carey enters his process of eliminating the very existence of Clementine and as he travels the course of their relationship from the beginning to end, he mentally battles to escape his great escape from remembering her. He realizes that Ignorance isnt bliss, To love and lose is better than to never love( r forget the love one experiences in this case) at all (so cleche!!!). They end up together regardless! We all strive to forget the bad but we lose the good when we forget the bad. How do we know what is good, unless we know what is bad to compare the two. We all have endeavors waiting for us to begin and we all have a past, a present and a future and they all work together and collaborate and exists interdependently to create what makes us who we are and create the life that is meant for us to live. Celebrate and jus deal with it! It is written, just let it be and when you look back on it all, you will say, It all makes since Now! It was worth it! God knew what he was doing with me! OhHHHHH, .... thats why that happened! The eternal sunshine of the spotless mind of a virgin complacent to not knowing the world and all it has to offer is not worthy enough to continue its existence on earth, because the virgin promotes mere stagnancy, complacency, doubt and fear for what has been intricately weaved and designed for them to travel through and become one with (harsh, when i say not worthy enough, but rather they take life or the possibility of it for granted). Life is finding Sunshine without a Spotless MInd, but a open heart and mind eager to be filled with the thoughts, lessons and experiences the Man above has in store for us. Don't Fight the Fate, it will transpire regardless, with or without your doing!

It’s the cycle of life.

Things move in cycles in life because humans haven’t learned how to get it right the first time.
So we all as humans have to look at earth as a whole
Or we’ll keep taking the same test….

It’s the cycle of life.

Random Eclectic-Ness

Stop being a Back seat rider, Get your own car and drive where you want to GO!



I was asked this question the other day in an interview, and I gave the first random answer that popped n2 my head, although genuine, it wasnt necessarily an accurate embodient of what truly inspires me.

I inspire myself! not in an arrogant way, no Kanye! lol but tHE realization that so much un manifested potential lies within me which has yet to evolve into a working idea or implemented plan. We all should embrace our potential and strive consistently and wholeheartedly to channel such possibilities within ourselves and let them resonate into a tangible reality. God woke me and alot of other people up this morning, he will most likely do the same tommorow, while others stay asleep never witnessing another day on earth again. Why? I think its because God gives each of us Purpose and it is our duty to fulfill that purpose. We must be inspired by the gifts planted within us from above and let that inspiration fuel us to realize our dreams. So, when we are bored, lost, without vision or purpose or motivation, let us be inspired by our own brilliance and inner eclectic-ness and thus edify our lives and the world we are IN until our purpose has been manifested. And we will know when that day comes because all that will be left of us ON PLANET EARTH is our legacy and the purpose rEALIZED for others to take advantage of and possibly carry on

SXSW 2009

Sxsw 2009 was definately better than the last year, hands down. Fisrt party up was the Fool's Gold After Dark Party at Palm Door. The line was wrapped around the building, down the street. Some friends I got in by mere luck. DJ A-Trak, Kid Sister, DJ Mehdi, Kid Cudi were a few of the artists that got everyone to get down! 88-Keys was in the building self promoting his new album produced by Kanye. After 2am, drinks were FREE!
Fader Fort was the place to be. Especially on Saturday, Diplo was in the house, Bun B was reppin the H, Bently came through, Common, and to top it off. Mr. West dropped in! This was probably the dopest show at sxsw with Free SoCo all day and night!

I watched people in the building fill up one by one. I sat aside Joe and I asked him a couple questions about the show.

-To bring a different type of Art to the University …something that’s not typical on campus.

-Improving on the clothing

Ummmmm….I thought the interview was going to be more interesting, but he was yet another man with a few words. Joe is working on a documentary with a few students from school there was a preview trailor shown at the art show. This Documentary was pretty cool it will be shown at the SIGMA TAU THETA art festival.
