A Day In the Life

Some times I like to get my hikikimori on and chill in the crib, but when it's over 80 degrees, the sun calls me and when I'm summoned, I just run through NYC till the wheels fall off..When I got out for 24 hours, there's just so much that happens..wardrobe changes, many, many friends and too many laughs.. I love life.. this is an account of how my life is a few days during the week.

This past weekend was 1 of the most amazing weekends.. The jumpstart to actually LIVE MY LIFE was sparked by MJ passing away. :-( I thought about all the songs he made and what they stood for. His concepts and songwriting is/was exceptional. In alignment with "music" in heneral... i knew I had a show this weekend. I was kind of bummed but after listening to MY all weekend long..and see how the people came together again.. cuz yes.. the loss of MJ is tragic, I decided to power up real fast and make sure I get to the show! I got to rock the mic for G.AME on the strength of the Go Green Hip Hop tour. G.A.ME put together the event to in the BX ..I think it was 167th between Gerard and Cromwell.



I got invited to do 2 more events and to get some FM radio spins so I'm really excited about that.





The bonus was I met NYOIL at the event too..which is really cool. My friend Eiko talks about him a lot and it was really great to meet him.

Later that night I linked up with MegaRan aka Random. It was ill because I haven't seen him in years but we got to kick it and party with his friends. Shouts to Liz, storyville, Solitaire, Vince, Russell, Jenna and Random.





We hit up a club.. and for some reason there was just nooooo MJ playing...i feel so weird about being in a club when I legend dies and the DJ does't go in!



I got to rest later after leaving Random and his friends around 3AM. It was good to see my dude...it's been years since I've chilled with Ran... The bonus was to get my copy of MM9 where I feature on song #5 called My Love :-)




I rested up...woke up Sunday AM and hit chinatown early for some great food. There's a malaysian restaurant there that is really good. I got to link with my fam, Mio.. she's an upcoming singer that's working hard here in NYC. Very talented.



The food was slamming. Orange chicken, veggie friend rice..& gyoza style dumplings ...yummm!







On my way back to Strong Island, and with clouded thoughts about losing the King of Pop.. i got to hear another below.. enjoy the steel drum below.. i got to mellow out real fast ;-)

Another Wrinkle In Time




Shocking, the King of Pop actually passed away. He died on 06/25/2009 and it took me about 3 days for it to really hit me. I regret never making my way to an MJ concert, but I'm happy my dad bought all of his vinyl. I still have the audio and my hearing, thank God.


(this is what the sky looked like on 06/26/2009..half the sky was pitch black and the other half looked like the above)

Friday people were going in on Mike... about the personal life crap with the boys, the beatles and everything. I was like, listen, just listen to all the songs dude has ever put out. Listen to the message. Mike had a consistent message of love. He music was kind. He made it cool to be human in his music. He was an amazing artist, lyricist, musician, dancer, and person.

Seriously MJ's passin is so surreal, like 100 years from now we all won't matter..but still.. Mike made noise throughout the universe and I actually feel, that Mike, might actually matter! I'm actually questioning again why? Why are we here? Why? I know it doesn't matter..I'm missing the point and not enjoying the gift of life known as the "present" time. I just want some assistance though

So many losses this past week..now i feel lost
:-T

The Ten Most Dangerous Mistakes
YOU Probably Make With Women—
And What To Do About It
by David DeAngelo


Here Are The Top Ten Reasons Why Men Fail With Women And How To Make Sure YOU Avoid Every One Of These Deadly Common Mistakes…
-By David DeAngelo, Author Of Double Your Dating

MISTAKE #1: Being
Too Much Of A Nice Guy

Have you ever noticed that the really attractive women never seem to be attracted to "nice" guys?

Of course you have.

Just like me, I'm sure you've had attractive female friends that always seemed to date "jerks"… but for some reason they were never romantically interested in YOU.

What's going on here?

It's actually very simple…

Women don't base their choices of men on how "nice" a guy is. They choose the men they do because they feel a powerful GUT LEVEL ATTRACTION for them.

And guess what?

Being nice doesn't make a woman FEEL that powerful ATTRACTION.

And being NICE doesn't make a woman CHOOSE you.

I realize that this doesn't make a lot of logical sense, and it's hard to ACCEPT… but GET OVER IT.

Until you accept this FACT and begin to act on it, you'll NEVER have the success with women that you want.

MISTAKE #2: Trying To
"Convince Her To Like You"

What do most guys do when they meet a woman that they REALLY like… but she's just not interested?

Right! They try to "convince" the woman to feel differently.

Well, I have news for you… YOU WILL NEVER CHANGE HOW A WOMAN "FEELS" WHEN IT COMES TO ATTRACTION!

Never, ever, EVER.

You cannot CONVINCE a woman to feel differently about you with "logic and reasoning".

Think about it.

If a woman doesn't "feel it" for you, how in the world do you expect to change that FEELING by being "reasonable" with her?

But we all do it.

When a woman just isn't interested, we beg, plead, chase, and do our best to change her mind.

Bad idea. One that will never work.

MISTAKE #3: Looking To Her
For Approval Or Permission

In our desire to please women (which we mistakenly think will make them like us), us guys are always doing things to get a woman's "approval" or "permission".


Another HORRIBLE idea.

Women are NEVER attracted to the types of men who kiss up to them… EVER.

Don't get me wrong here.

You don't have to treat women BADLY for them to like you.

But if you think that treating a woman well means "always getting her approval and permission for things", think again.

You will never succeed by looking for approval. Women actually get ANNOYED at men who seek their approval.

Doubt me? Just ask any attractive woman if Wussy guys who chase her around and want her approval annoy her…

MISTAKE #4: Trying To Buy Her
Affection With Food And Gifts

How many times have you taken a woman out to a nice dinner, bought her gifts and flowers, and had her REJECT you for someone who didn't treat her even HALF as well as you did?

If you're like me, then you've had it happen a LOT.

Well guess what?

It's only NATURAL when this happens…

That's right, I said NATURAL.

When you do these things, you send a clear message:

"I don't think you'll like me for who I am, so I'm going to try to buy your attention and affection".

Your good intentions usually come across to women as over-compensation for insecurity, and weak attempts at manipulation. That's right, I said that women see this as MANIPULATION.

MISTAKE #5: Sharing
How You Feel Too Early In
The Relationship With Her

Another huge and unfortunate mistake that most men make with women is sharing how they "feel" too early on.

Attractive women are rare.

And they get a LOT of attention from men.

Most men don't realize this, but attractive women are being approached in one way or another ALL THE TIME.

An attractive woman is often approached several times a DAY by men who are interested. This translates into dozens of times per week, and often HUNDREDS of times per month.

And guess what?

Attractive women have usually dated a LOT of men.

That's right. They have EXPERIENCE.

They know what to expect.

And one thing that turns an attractive women off and sends her running away faster than just about anything is a guy who starts saying "You know, I really, REALLY like you" after one or two dates.

This signals to the woman that you're just like all the other guys who fall for her too fast… and can't control themselves.

Don't do it. Lean back. Relax.

There's a much better way…

MISTAKE #6: Not Getting How
Attraction Works For Women

Women are VERY different from men when it comes to ATTRACTION.


You need to accept this fact, and deal with it.

When a man sees a beautiful, young, sexy woman, he INSTANTLY feels a sexual attraction.

But does the same apply for women?

Do women feel sexual attraction to men based mostly on looks? Or is something else going on?

Well, after studying this topic for over five full years now, I can tell you that women usually have their "attraction mechanisms" triggered by things OTHER than looks.

Have you ever noticed that you see a lot more average and unattractive men with beautiful women than the other way around?

Think about it.

Women are more attracted to certain qualities in men… and they're attracted to the way a man makes them FEEL than they are to looks alone.

If you know how to use your body language and communication correctly, you can make women feel the same kind of powerful sexual attraction to you that YOU feel when you see a hot, sexy young woman.

But it's not an accident. You have to LEARN how to do this.

And ANY guy can learn how…

MISTAKE #7: Thinking That It
Takes Money And Looks

One of the most common mistakes that guys make is giving up before they've even gotten started… because they think that attractive women are only interested in men who have looks and money… or guys who are a certain height… or guys who are a certain age.


And sure, there are some women who are only interested in these things.

But MOST women are far more interested in a man's personality than his wallet or his looks.

There are personality traits that attract women like a magnet…

And if you learn what they are and how to use them, YOU can be one of these guys.

YOU DO NOT have to "settle" for a woman just because you aren't rich, tall, or handsome.

Let me say this again: If you know how to use your body language and communication correctly,you can make women feel the same kind of powerful sexual attraction to you that YOU feel when you see a hot, sexy young woman.

MISTAKE #8: Giving Away
All Of Your Power To Women

Earlier I mentioned that it's a mistake to look to a woman for approval or permission.


Well, another similar tactic that a lot of guys use is GIVING AWAY THEIR POWER to women.

Said differently, guys try to get women to like them by doing whatever the woman wants.

Another bad idea…

Women are NEVER attracted to men that they can walk all over… Women aren't attracted to Wussies!

MISTAKE #9: Not Knowing EXACTLY What To Do In Each Type Of Situation With Women
Now I'm going to blow your mind…


A woman ALWAYS knows what you're thinking.

Women are approximately TEN TIMES better than men at reading body language. That's ten TIMES.

I know, it might be hard to believe. But for example, if you're out on a date with a woman, and you want to kiss her, she knows it.

And if you don't know exactly what to do and exactly HOW to kiss her, and you just sit there looking at her and getting nervous, she won't help!

And this goes for ALL aspects of women and dating…

Approaching a woman, getting her number, asking her out, kissing her, getting physical… everything.

If you don't know what to do in each situation, you will probably screw it up… and LOSE EVERYTHING.

And you KNOW it.

It is VITALLY important that you know EXACTLY how to go from one step to the next with a woman… from the first meeting, all the way to the bedroom.

MISTAKE #10: Not Getting HELP

This is the biggest mistake of all.

This is the mistake that keeps most men from EVER having the kind of success with women that they truly want.

I know, guys don't like to make themselves look weak or helpless. We don't like to ask for help.

Hey, I've been there myself.

Let me tell you a little about me and how I figured out how to be successful with women…

About five years ago I became fed up with the fact that I didn't know how to approach, meet, and get dates with women that I was attracted to.

It frustrated the hell out of me.

One night I was out with a friend, and I saw a woman I wanted to ask out, but I just couldn't get up the nerve to do it. I can still remember that night… right on the spot I made the decision to do whatever it took to learn how to be successful with women and dating.

Well, after a lot of hard work and trying all kinds of crazy things, I finally figured it all out.

I can now approach just about any woman and get her number almost instantly. I've dated models, I've dated actresses, and I've dated nice, normal, regular girls as well.

It has been a very rewarding experience. I no longer feel that sick, insecure feeling… like I don't know how to meet women… and I might wind up alone.

I know that anytime, anywhere, I can go out and meet attractive women.

I've written a book on the topic, and I've done seminars on both coasts of the United States… and taught tens of thousands of men all around the world.

I Now Have A FREE, Three-Times-A-Week Email Newsletter…
...But the REALLY GREAT news is that I now publish a free email newsletter three times a week that teaches any guy how to increase his success with women DRAMATICALLY.

Oh, And One More Thing…
In this day and age of "instant gratification", I realize that this might just sound like another late-night info-mercial promising to make you rich by next week.

Well, that's not the case.

How to live forever

peace to http://www.myspace.com/redeyesmcgee for posting this originally!
-RAVAGE

HOW TO LIVE FOREVER

1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay "them "

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.

3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. "An idle mind is the devil's workshop." And the devil's name is Alzheimer's.

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love, whether it's family, pets,keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable,improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER :

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

GOD PLEASE!

The theories about a magnetic pole shift only make sense. I'm basing that 1 statement on my actual life experience. Everytime something in the movies comes out...(like Nicolas Cage's more recent joint "Knowing") a few years later the events happen here in real time.

Anyways, I'm having a good day but very anxious about what my life is going to be like. What does the future hold? Thinking about that too much will make me not grateful for the present time, running, writing a lot of rhymes and making some artwork has allowed me to honor the present time more and be grateful.. simply by using what God gave me to create.

Here is the gist of what I'm writing about:

NASA Claims Earth Pole Shift 2012. Isaiah 24

The above blog quotes these 3 passages from the
Basic
Instructions
Before
Leaving
Earth

Revelation 13 - And Satan does great wonders, so that he makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.

Joel 2 - And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.

Isaiah 24 - Therefore has the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.

There are highlights though..and such a great reset that goes on in revelations.. even the apostles creed talks about a new world! But what I'd do to be healthy and alive and not succumb to the madness only to subsist in the goodness to come.. not to mention an angel named St. Michael (one closest) to God is supposed to make a special guest appearance..

seriously though.. i'm still scared as sh*t (pardon my language). There's some people that I love, a lot...the thought of them burning's gonna kill me...
thus I ask God now, God Please....

love
RAVAGE

dreams

Recently I had a dream that left me feeling happy!

I was with a group of people.. maybe it was like all of us were juniors in college and went on a class trip to someplace where the beach was really nice but not like Miami or anything.. It felt like maybe we were at jones beach minus all the chemical waste that washes up on shore.. anyways.. everyone kept losing their keys and I somehow kept finding them all!

shortly after finding keys for 2 groups of people..i thought 2 of my wise a$$ school mates stole my flip flops. Maybe they didn't steal them but they just tossed them in the garbage type of thing. I looked down and bong, my flip flops were right on my feet...as I saw them clowning around off in the distance I was releaved.

The last part of my dream featured my 2 newest dogs.. Max and Keno.. they are 9 weeks old now. The main feature of this dream was my dog that passed away years ago.. He died shortly after my dad came home from drinking too much.. my dog Jessie died about a year after that.. he was young but he was going crazy... anyways Jessie was playing with max and keno..and all of them were having fun...it was weird because when I woke up, it didn't hit me until like 2 hours after being awake that my dog that was dead was vividly in my dream having fun with my new dogs...i was expecting to go downstairs and see 3 dogs but I realized type late only 2 dogs are visually present right now!

Anyways...i know dreams have meanings, I have to figure this one out soon. I just overall had a good, good feeling about the entire dream.
