Oh Dear God.

I just heard Phantom (an amazing song by my idols, Justice) in a Cadillac Escalade commercial...and I have never been more offended in my life. I think I hate Cadillac even more than Hummer.


Phantom is way too glamorous for the Escalade. This commercial should be pulled and the PR people should be shot.

end biggotry.

Nothing But Love for IHMDJ!

So a few weeks ago I emailed IHMDJ (I Hate My Day Job) requesting some stickers. This is what I recieved in the mail the other day, 100% free of charge.


Condoms, Cool tissue paper, a SHIT LOAD of stickers, and

Cool Kids Sweatershirt

This sweatshirt retailing at $75. Let me reiterate the fact that I didn't pay anything for all of this. It's my dream come true!!

Fits perfectly into my collage!

Shit everyone, give that company business! They have some dope shit.

The password to Sarah Palin's YAHOO email account is "popcorn". Popcorn? Really Sarah? Apparently in addition to not having any regards towards human rights or the planet, she also is technologically stupid.

When she becomes president (read: The apocalypse) the password to nuke the whole world will probably be "go."

Nothing Good Ever Happens in the Keys

You'd think going to the Florida Keys would be a vacation. Look at it!

El Mar

But let me tell you, this place is NOT for the faint hearted. Every time (read: 3 times) I've gone to the Keys something bad has happened to me!

Trip 1: Key West
A field trip with my major allowed me to take my first visit to Key West. "AWESOME." I thought. "It's going to be the best field trip ever! How can it not be? IT'S KEY WEST!" Boy was I wrong.

After a 4 hour bus ride on a bus that averaged -15 degrees we finally got to Key West, where our self conscience teacher decided she's to stupid to walk us around Key West and let us enjoy ourselves and instead needs the loquacious program director to give us a walking tour.

"I'm Roberto Behar, YOU KNOW"
So we followed around the guy on the far right, with super stylish glasses I might add, and learned about seriously the BLANDEST buildings in Key West. He wouldn't stfu, but that isn't to say there weren't some hilarious moments. Like the times when we'd just walk right into the middle of the street to admire the buildings ignoring all oncoming traffic because looking at a building is more important. And also the time he sent someone to climb up some random people's porch column.

Clothing Optional

The highlight of my trip was the sign on this building, WHICH I had to take this picture as we sped past it to some Women's house or something that I don't care about. This trip was also wasted as I ate lunch at DENNY'S (read: POOP ON A PLATE) AND was charged twice the amount for my food BECAUSE the Denny's was in Key West.

Fuck Denny's and Fuck Key West.

Trip 2: Bahia Honda

I decided to try again, this time going to the Keys during Spring Break so I could swim in the beautiful water I saw on the bus ride to Key West. The destination: Bahia Honda Key. I'd done my research and the pictures from Bahia Honda were beautiful so I drove down there.

The drive was amazing. Some of the prettiest scenery I've ever seen. I ended the drive with a horrible short tan, but that's okay because the drive was so worth it.

So we have a merry time at the beach. Took naps, explored, found huge jellyfish washed ashore, lounged in the liquid like sand, swam to the coral reef, took lots of pictures. It was great!

So we pack up to leave, still on a high from how much fun it was. 45 minutes already into the trip on the way back I realize...Where is my cell phone?
Called it, didn't find anything. Looked all in my car. Didn't find anything...Fuck. SO beginning with the loss of my cell phone I endured a week of technology hell. And I blame it all on Bahia Honda and their noise absorbing sand.

Trip 3: Islamorada
So I took another trip to the Keys today, for another class project, this time to Islamorada (a significantly more boring place than Key West). However this time my field trip was actually fun.

I trespassed on private property.

Word on the Sidewalk: Surprise Concert

Guess who's giving a free concert at my school.....!

N.E.R.D!! I could be more excited if I hadn't already paid $50 for tickets.

My goal for the show: Get backstage and take a picture with Hot Boy Pharrell.

A Weekend in the Life

Okay so, one of the GREAT joys of being an architecture major is the amount of torture you put yourself through on a daily basis. My latest project was a map of some unimportant island in the Florida Keys.

SO seeing as it was due today, I spent my ENTIRE weekend working on this piece of shit. When I say entire, I mean ENTIRE. We're talking:
Friday: 5pm-5am (12 hours)
Saturday: 1pm-5am (16 hours)
Sunday: 2pm-1am (11 hours)

Anywho, to break the monotony that is stippling I brought my camera and took pictures during my breaks.

In total there are around 50 people in the architecture major here. And for our design classes we are divided into 6 groups of about 9. And that smaller group will be your studio, which you spend your entire life with and then you're all BFFs, etc. Good times good times.

But really, we work in this room. Everyone has a short desk (I can't cross my legs under the desk. My knees touch the bottom of the desk even sitting normally), a stool or two, some wall space, and a locker in their desk.

I sit in the desk that you can't see on the far left.


I decorated my locker with a sticker a la

So a lot of people think/assume architects make a lot of money, which they do make a fair paycheck, but they don't realize how expensive it is to actually produce the drawings. For example, in this picture of my desk the black ruler thing near the top costs $200, the translucent paper I'm putting my drawing on costs $3.50 per sheet, and the pen I'm drawing with is $20 each. And the pens break...often. Making it common to spend around $100 per project JUST on pens.

However, thank GOD for computers which have pretty much rendered hand drawing irrelevant in the professional world. If I had to hand draw for the rest of my life I'd probably kill myself or drop out of architecture.

Here's a better shot of the bain of my existence. Really, maps are BORING. Buildings are so much more fun. I don't think anyone could pay me to do cartography.

Stippling is another thorn in my side. My finger is shaped weird from drawing so much this weekend. =( I also had a severe crook in my neck 80% of the time from holding my head in akward positions for long periods of time.

3:30 AM, still trucking. Isn't my cell wallpaper hot though?

And that's all for now. THANK GOD I'm FINALLY out of the studio.

Gone on a sadistic sabbatical. Will be back Monday afternoon with updates.

PS. Whoever invented cartography should BE KILLED.

Those Prison Hooligans

Under normal circumstances I never want to be arrested, HOWEVER if I absolutely sure I was going to be sent to the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center in the Philippines I would 100% do everything in my power TO GET arrested.


I didn't even learn shit as cool as this in my dance schools! I love these guys.


However, arrested or not I AM going to learn this dance.

Celeb BBS

Call me cruel, but most of the time I don't think kids are cute. They are small, but small does not equal cute (read: Gary Coleman). And even putting appearances aside, kids are bad mother fuckers (read: Charles Manson).

However there are three children I find completely adorable!

1. Suri Cruise who just has the cutest haircut.
2. Jaden Smith who is adorable and was amazing in the Pursuit of Happiness



He has the best head of hair ever! SO CUTE!

Hear Hear: Estelle

I rarely listen to the radio, but I heard this on it the other day and fell in love with it. Kanye strikes again!

The UK really has the most soulful singers. I love it!


Is it just me, or are celebs coming out with fashion lines left and right?

Justin Timberlake expanded his denim line, William Rast, to be a full collection. He's debuted his Spring/Summer 2009 line at both New York AND Los Angles fashion week. According to Justin the line is "Tennessee."

William Rast Spring '09 RTW

Very Tennessee, indeed. There are a lot of tailored jackets. All in all I think the line is very Justin. As in, they took clothes from his closet and made a line. So the line is as stylish as Justin is.

If you can AFFORD it, you can buy something at William Rast. The website actually has this really fun graphic on the front page featuring different mug shots of Justin and the female model they used for the line.


Personally, I'm looking for to Diggy Simmon's "Space Age" line. A street clothing line FOR kids, BY kids. Sure to be an acid trip.

This kid is too cool for school.

Dayummmm! I love my school, but I have to admit this is a clever shirt. Props.

It still doesn't make UF a better place. Come on, Gainesville? Fuck that. Go back to your double wides and fry up some bacon.

Miami will ALWAYS be the better school.

Picture Post: SoBe

One of the many pluses to living in Miami is South Beach. vI brought my baby to South Beach and here are some highlights of my trip.

10:30 PM: A Lady was leaving her, what I assume to be bachelorette party (she was wearing a veil and she was incredibly wasted). Her friends tried to help her stumble along the sidewalk, unbeknownst to them she was hiking her skirt up the whole time...and she wasn't wearing underwear. Restaurant diners, workers, and people passing her were highly amused. They eventually realized she was showing her ass to the world and pulled her skirt back down every now and then.

If anyone ever watched that short-lived MTV reality television show about a modeling agency, 8th and Ocean, this is the agency it was set in. And yes, it is located at the intersection 8th Street and Ocean Ave. Didn't see any models =(, but I'm thinking if I had a job at Johnny Rockets I'd be making model friends left and right.

American Apparel love. This store has the creepiest mannequins standing outside of their door. I always think they're real people. The sketch, street rappers also choose this spot to hand out their demo tapes. In other cities this usually happens in the Walmart parking lot.

Before I continue to the next picture I have to explain about the joys of walking down the sidewalks on Ocean Avenue.


So basically this is the setting for the entire street. You walk down a narrow space, wide enough for just your body and maybe a dog, surrounded on both sides by restaurant chairs and diners. And each restaurant ALWAYS has some people set up ON THE SIDEWALK who block your path while your walking and shove their menu into your hands and then try to make you sit down. I really feel bad turning them down sometimes, but they are really fucking annoying. And SOMETIMES, the restaurants even have food displays on the sidewalk, trying to entice you in with how appealing the food looks.


They got me.
The food was delicious though. I'd only suggest going at lunch because 90% of the restaurants do 50% off the entire menu during lunch. It's like $20 for a plate of pasta vs. $10. But the food really is good.

Camera fail, lo siento.

While your eating, jailbait shoves a tray of cigarettes and cigars into your face and offers to sell you some. $2 for a Black and Mild.

There are also lots of people trying to make a dollar off the rich SoBe goers. This man was walking a dog that was loyally carrying a bucket in it's mouth. If you throw some money on the ground the dog does a neat little trick.

He picks it up IN HIS MOUTH
