END OF THIS BLOG

So... I'm ending this blog... I finally gave into this Tumblr shit like I did Twitter... but I gotta admit it's a wayyyyy better route of promoting compared, plus I'm not gonna write anymore detailed shit anyway, less talk, more visuals, I don't think people appreciate my writing enough anyway, if at all, but I know they aint gonna hate on my work. I'm the fucking best!

Small World, Big Things

So Kreayshawn came to NYC for the first time to open up with Roxy Cottontail on her birthday for Andre Nickatina and you know I had to come see the Queen of Swag! The homie 40 Thousand was also opening with my bro Hood Chef. We had all the elite people in that place rockin' Wasted Talent Marijuana Medallions. Here's a video from Karmaloop of the event which you can see 40 Thousand stuntin' for the camera. I was gonna wait 'til the locos got all their footage edited and shit, but I came across these photos (below) of her from The Hundreds "Meow" blog that look so dope that I said fuck waiting. The first photo she is swaggin' out the purple version of Wasted Talent Marijuana Medallions which at the moment, only 10 exist in the whole world. The other two of her I threw in just for good measure... just for my Mom.

Note: Pharell Williams of The Neptunes is like the head art director or some shit for these Karmaloop videos... just saying.

2011 High Times Cannabis Cup

Yo, Denver reminded me of a slower Oakland. Crackheads bums and hookers everywhere, weed clinics, lots of diversity. I almost felt like I should of seen a familiar face, but long story short... I smoke crazy weed, some ear wax shit out of a bong that had me leave the event for 2 hours, almost had a threesome til I lost my star power, walked the streets dolo, got approached by hookers and crackheads which were kind of the same people, saw some junkie get smacked through a laundry matt window by some dealer, ate the best food, went to some metro sexual club that fit like 10,000 people in it and there was 2 more across the street which didn't let us in cause of Hood Chef's neck tattoo's, snuck into the High Times 20111 Cannabis Cup, saw some crazy art... we just had lots of fun. Wait for the movie to be released so you can get the full stories. Shit is gonna hilarious! 4FUN

HOME SWAG HOME

Just a random day at the funhouse. I produced the beat for the track that's playing in the video. I will not be a Wasted Talent. 4FUN


The Funhouse Cartoon Series

If ya'll didn't know, I moved into NYC's legendary Funhouse with Hood Chef.... and 45 + other locos. Shit is literally way too much fun though. I'm way too blessed to be living here.

We're starting a cartoon series. Every person you see is an actual person. Mostly everybody is doing their own voice. I produced the beat for the intro theme song which you will hear in future episodes as well as 90% of the background music through out the shows. I also recommend watching the other episodes too. Their fucking hilarious!


I will not be a Wasted Talent. 4FUN

BIG UP MY HATERS "KNOW YOUR PLACE"














Yo, since I was in middle school, people always thought of me as some naive dumb lil' white kid, maybe I give off that vibe cause that's how much I truly don't give a fuck about what anybody thinks about me... but with them just thinking that, whether they said it out loud or not... like the social genius I am, I can see right through their fakeness and could just automatically tell they think that about me. I'll go years letting you think I'm whatever you want me to be. I really don't care, cause I know in the long I won't even know half of these people anymore. I mentally prepared myself for all this shit when I was 14. I'm so ahead of my time. I think some people notice it, but I've been surrounded by so many people who don't keep it real all my life that I'm just used to suckas downing my vision. Having 50% telling me I'm the worst, the other 50% tellin' me I'm the best. I dunno who to believe, so I just say fuck it, and do "me".... whatever it is I do, I just keep it real and be "me" and just have fun doing it. In my mind, that makes me the fucking best. That's what I'm used too. Maybe that's why I seem like such a conceited asshole... cause I have the ability to separate fantasy from reality, cause like I said in a bunch of previous posts, I "KNOW MY PLACE". Which apparently most people lack the ability or have in a way almost tricked themselves to believe they can cause of that stupid childrens book with "The Lil' Train That Could" that taught great courage by making a baby train proceeding to "keep on going" and make it over a big hill, but that's just a book to make lil' kids motivate their newly developing feeble minds to at least to TRY and build you up to never give up on a dream, but everything still comes back down to "KNOW YOUR PLACE".


Anyway... I did this song with my Loco Life fam, now all my secret haters who pretended to be my friend for years and years and years talk shit about me for it. You know the type who at first said you weren't shit, than they tried riding your wave cause they realized you were onto something, whatever that is that you were onto and then they realized you weren't foolish enough to let them, so they dreaded the fact of being left behind by the same visionary they always secretly hated on which they played off for years as just friends "bustin' each others chops", now has a better chance of making a mark on this world through something cooler than a 9 to 5 job. Like these snakes truly think I'm so unintelligent I can't figure out they have alterior motives. I'll amuse them for the time being, but eventually they will learn just like I did, the hard way, to "KNOW YOUR PLACE". Some of these people, I know I went to school with them, but I have no fucking idea who they are, but they know me, cause I'm one of the few in this town that truly put forth effort to do something with my life. It was no real secret to me, cause dead ass, I know what people think about me just through how they communicate with me. You can smile in my face all day, but I'll know the truth. I got these cliche life forms calling ME corny! I'm assuming it's cause I'm white or my voice aint as deep as they want it to be, but either way, they hate on me soooo hard! It's a true display of the term "being hated on". I've always been hated on, but thought I really had my 1st true taste of REAL hate when I first started Wasted Talent. This year though, the hate has definitely risen very noticeably... and we're only 3 months into the year. I guess that's a good thing though... the negative things I been reading on Facebook about me literally have me cackling like a mad scientist. I literally spent the last 45 minutes just reading the hate over and over again and laughing to myself. They got me feeling myself hard. It's truly euphoric knowing that people hate on me cause they wish they were in my shoes. Even if I gave them the chance to be in my shoes, what the fuck would they really do with that chance? I'm willing to bet my right arm, absolutely nothing, cause they don't "KNOW THEIR PLACE".

(Just bare with me as I try and provide detail to explain how these clowns live in their suburban fantasies. I know I might be rambling, but in the end of this post it will all make sense)

So these people are hatin' on me cause I'm an artist who wanted to design clothes and make beats and now I DO all that. I'm also a lifer for customizing toys as by accident I found a secret niche hidden from myself by the likes of Paul Wall. Now I design clothes, make beats, make toys and now... I rap? I literally did one rap song... actually one verse on a rap song... just 4FUN... and I got these clowns around my way hatin'!!!!! I was in kitchen at the funhouse, Ricky Bobby comes in and said "yo, there's room on the track, you wanna do a verse?" I said "yeah, fuck it, why not?" Not knowing a video would be shot right after. Nobody even say "ok, where shooting the video now, they just did it". What you see was all done in like 6 1/2 hours. Not even telling me it's gonna be on the 4FUN Mixtape. Now Hood Chef is like "yo, Sky and Jerzey are coming down from Florida, all the Loco's are gonna be there and your performing at the 4FUN Fund Raiser". I replied with "I am?" I didn't ask to be a rapper, I'm not even pursuing it as a career... can you guess why? Cause I "KNOW MY PLACE". I literally just did it 4FUN, cause I can. I even fucked up my lines at the show last Thursday, but I don't care. I did it just 4FUN. Suckas telling me I'm "GARBAGE" cause I aint kickin' knowledge or some shit they would consider "real hip hop" on some seriously wack ass ol' school beats that they think is cool cause their stuck in 1993 when they thought they were down with the shit and used to still get pussy in highschool. Whether you think my rhymes are weak, I literally didn't spit any false shit on my verse, I didn't kill anybody on the track, I didn't sell crack, nothing like that. I simply rhymed about gettin' money, gettin' honey's and stylin' on them dummies! That's it. I kept it real as I can be.

So with that said, I'm almost positive I'm gonna have absolute nobody's dissin' me on a track to uhhhhh.... I assume to listen to it amongst their friends while taking blunt rides or whatever? I dunno? It's rather flattering though! And exciting at the same time! I might get a whole song about me just cause I spit a 16. That's how fucking awesome I am in this corny town I'm currently living in at the moment (thankfully for only one more day) that people think by dissin' me on a wack ass beat that they're gonna gain some shine or some shit. Like if I lent them my shoes, what the fuck would they do in 'em? Design clothes... how? They cant even draw a stick figure... not to mention, NONE OF THEM HAVE ANY SWAG! Type of niggas that still rock AF1's after they dropped so much money on those weak ass kicks 5 years ago, they never even bothered to upgrade themselves, Thanks Nelly! Make beats... sure, but whether my opinion matters or not, I'm positive it's gonna sound like formulated cliche bullshit. Make toys... how? They weren't able to draw a stick figure, what makes 'em think they can sculpt and paint now? Rap? I heard some of 'em rap, they can't even hold a beat, they wanna be Eminem, Lil' Wayne, you know... the biggest rap stars the worlds ever seen yet. Typical. Yeah, who wouldn't wanna be in their shoes, but be realistic... "KNOW YOUR PLACE". The cliche raps aint gonna get them anywhere, neither is their unoriginality. They can't even network over the internet, what the fuck makes 'em think their gonna make power moves face to face with industry people? They can't even spell, how could they conduct themselves in a professional manner? Their whole logic is so warped. It's cliche formulated gangsta rap that their simple minds were brainwashed by to believe that's what you had to become to "get on". The follower type... not leaders. "KNOW YOUR PLACE". Type of ignants who think life is all about poppin' bottles, speaking Ebonics, gaining street cred trying to become some type of "general of the streets" like we starring in some fucking drug lord movie or some shit. Get real. Get some logic. This is real life. I swear. I promise. But it's just stupid dumb living in denial shit like that I've been surrounded by fakeness all my life... I think more than the average person.

For example, I myself know I haven't even done shit with my life and to have my haters minds run incredibly wild like this with envy is kind of sad, cause it shows how pathetic their lives are that the lil' shit that I did do can upset them. I'm not even 30 yet, I literally got these fucking dudes who could quite possibly be 40 years old and never did shit with anything they wanted to pursue as dream career and they have the audacity to come out their face and down me. Typical. I'm the fucking best. I get it. It comes with the territory. I get it... But in the end, it will ALWAYS come back to this. "KNOW YOUR PLACE". I'm not even 30 yet and I've done things these faggots dreamed of doing since they were adolescents. Their literally gonna die townies while I experience life as I tour the world with my "real" friends. I'll be whatever you want me to be. Keep hatin', I fucking love it.

You can see more photos of the event here.

Toy Lords Of Chinatown episode 2

So finally, here it is... A few months back I blogged about me be invited to participate in the filming of Sucklord's second episode of "The Lords Of Chinatown. Just watching this makes me realize what an inpiration he is to me and should be to all nerds. Not saying we're nerds, but you know... in a sense, we are... and we embrace it like the fucking best! I used the word "nerd" cause I'm sure most people who aren't really into the toy world or art world in general, aren't gonna sit through the whole thing, most people probably aint even gonna read what I'm writing to even give themselves the idea to do so. For example most of my friends are rappers and are more likey to sit through a shitty music video than they are to sit down for 5 minutes and witness magic that has been created by such an intelligent talented hard working individual. If your not a sucka and your one of those people who KNOW "real recognize real"... watch this video! It's incredibly funny and if you knew the man himself, you'd understand his story line even more. It's pretty much an exaggerated version of his real life filled with tons of fun and imagination.

Note: If your down with the shit. You'll also see a lof of familiar faces that are also... down with the shit!

WE WILL NOT BE A WASTED TALENT.

Dem Bonez by SEEN

I'm honored to be participating in "The Reconstruction"... a group art show with the platform being an unreleased toy by the legendary graffiti writer SEEN called "Dem Bonez". The toy was originally an idea to get produced as a production piece, but he eventually decided to drop the idea and give the remaining 200 toys out to random artists from around the world to customize for the show. I was one of those lucky artists to be invited to participate in the legends show. The show will be on March 25th at ZAKKA which is in Brooklyn. The flyer will be done very soon. I'm also very excited and relieved to say this is the last group art show I will participate in, with that said, the name of this piece is "The Death Of Wasted Talent".

Big shout out to Mr. Den! God Bless.


Also, on a side note, I'm finally making power moves to Brooklyn. No more couch surfing through life with some super rare swag. I will have an official spot in the legendary Funhouse. This is gonna be a "fun" summer.

I will not be a Wasted Talent.

Marijuana Jewelry

I been slacking on the blog like a mutha fucka, but I swear I'm not slacking in real life! I figured I had 1 day left to the month to post at least one thing cool... so over the passed week I was making a set of Ms. Cupcakes in the midst of a 100 of projects, I'm customizing them to be "Organic Space Cakes". Each has a topping like a cherry for example, one with a hand sculpted mushroom, another with a hand sculpted bud of marijuana. I liked the way the bud came out so much that I decided to make wearable pendants, earrings for both men and woman and maybe some other shit as I go along. Also, my homie Mike "Nemo" Mendez brought it up to me that I should throw some arms, legs and eyes and make my first toy... and that's exactly what I'm gonna do! So expect one smoove character coming reallll soon! If everythign goes as planned, Wasted Talent will have its 1st official toy out by the end of the year. I'm almost positive I stumbled upon something amazing here. Below are some sneak peaks of my very first completed set of hand sculpted marijuana bud earrings and pendants.

Pancakes

I made the beat for this.

I just love this shit so much, cause I remember the fake hater faggots I grew up around always praying for my downfall saying nothing but negative shit about my beats and my whole artistic vision in general, instead of supporting a so called "friend". Only do that shit when you know the shit is truly wack! Don't just hate cause you aint in my shoes. Needless to say those faggot fucks have never made not even the slightest power move. The only thing they are best at is sucking at life. I hope you read this. You know who ya'll are. FUCK YOU! I'M THE BEST! SWAG!

Shout out to the loco PC for jumping on the track too!

Smoke Demon

Last night I was playing some of my beats at the funhouse. Hood Chef started flowing some funny ass shiiiiiiit! Like shit I couldn't stop laughing at, but knew it was kept so real that it would be a hit forever timeless like a version of "the electric slide", but for cool people. I was like "Yoooooooooooooo!!! This is a hit! You gotta do this track!" And he was all about it, so he busted out some quick phrases and BOOM, made a video for it all in one day. I'm gonna try and convince him to re-do and make it even better and make an even sicker music video. All in all, I'm not being biased cause it's my beat and Hood Chef is my bro, but this is one of my favorite songs to date. I can't listen to it without having fun. I can't get through this song without bursting out into laughter at least once!

p.s. To anybody who said my beats are wack, ya'll are just followers who walk the same line as everybody else thinking within that same stupid lil' box that only innovative talent think outside of. Ya'll don't have the skill, vision or even an ounce of swag to rock my instrumentals. You're beat!

p.p.s For ya'll who don't know, Smoke Demon is our homeboy who alone... smokes more than the whole funhouse put together, is ballin' outta control and funny as a hell! #4FUN

The Almighty Dunny Show Update

I just busted out this custom 3" Dunny today. My first custom I ever started and finished in one day. It's called "Dirty Rotten Scoundrel". Reminds me of the weasel characters they portray in cartoons as being you know... a "weasel"... a dirty rotten scoundrel. This is my third 3" custom Dunny for The Almighty Dunny Show. All customs will be for sale at the show and than for sale online at Halcyon and Genuine Artikle the next day.

I will also be bringing a bunch of left over 3" custom Dunny ornaments that I had for sale at Kidrobot NYC a few years ago to sell along with some other custom 3" Dunny ornaments that Zam and Ian Ziobrowski of Genuine Artikle are gonna do.














Sketch Cards

I finished my sketch cards. Only 20 will be inserted into random packs for The Art Hustle trading cards. I can't wait 'til I get my artist card. It's so sick that I got my own trading card. You might think to yourself, that aint shit, it's a stupid card, I can do that too... but ya didn't, ya most likely wont and yeah, I'm in the same trading card series with millionaire mastermind owner of Kidrobot "Paul Budnitz"... and to me... that's even cooler, because it was his toys that opened up the door to change my life. Shout out to everybody else who made the series too. I hope it gives you some type of euphoric feeling that it does me.

I did the same thing on every one of 'em. It was easier to do it that way. I tend to get caught up in artist block cause I hate to disappoint and by the time I've thought of something appealing enough for my OCD to deal with, I'm than being rushed by a dead line that's the next day. So, BOOM! Here it is. Done. I actually be done hella long, but I was just too lazy to update my blog. I need an assistant soooo bad. Anyway, To all ya collectors, if your lucky enough to snag one of these cards, I hope you enjoy my efforts. I will not be a Wasted Talent. Much love.

FAST/SWAG

These are two 3" Dunny's I did for The Almighty Dunny Show hosted by Genuine Artikle at Hacylon in Dumbo Brooklyn on Dec. 11th. Come come check out over there along with over 250 custom 3" Dunny's from talented artists all over the world.

The customs I did are called "Fast" and "Swag". I enjoyed creating the Swag Dunny so much, I think I'm gonna make a whole army of them. Since 2008 when I did my 1st custom 20" Dunny with the head upside down, I still haven't seen anyone do it, so I think I'm gonna fulfill that lil' niche and only do Dunny's with upside down heads giving the Dunny a whole new fresh look without really modifying it too much. So look out for a lot of Swag Dunny's for my solo show. Still will be lots of crazy monsters and innovative designs and other cool shit... I haven't mentioned anything about new Wasted Talent gear in a while, if your reading this and you've been patiently waiting for this one man army to push out some new product fresh off the boat. I was banking on my solo show to pay for my credit card bills and have more money to use towards my 1st true love... fashion, but because I myself waited so long, there will definitely be a limited edition tee released at my solo show. If anything happens before, you will know. My momentum is picking back up... I swear. And if you're one of those haters who personally pray for my downfall... just know I get extreme joy knowing that you personally pray for me.
