Airports

I’m about to start a boycott of airports. I’m so utterly fed up with the hoops they force you to jump through that the archaic form of trains and even buses have become more attractive options to me.

First, the airlines operate in a way that allows them to delay a flight if they don’t have enough heads on board to produce a profit. I think that’s bullsh*t. If I pay to fly at a particular time I should be provided that service. I am buying the time slot along with the ticket, not just any time slot that the airline can throw me in to.

The prices in airports infuriate me. I’m not even going to go into detail, but paying four dollars for candy not worth more than $1.29 at your local pharmacy drives me insane. It’s like living in an undeveloped, corrupt economy run by a dictator. Who is the king of the airport who charges such ludicrous rent to vendors that they sell their wares for three times the price? He should be overthrown.

Security remains the least troublesome aspect of airplane travel. I am never stopped for further examination, all my bags always pass through seamlessly, and it’s never a hassle. It’s every other little thing associated with airports that drive me to the brink of changing my itinerary.

Growing

The Dream

I’ve become obsessed with the idea of growing my own marijuana. Just imagine smoking something you grew from seed. It would be so empowering to have proven yourself capable of producing that which you love so much.

The bitch of it is that it is expensive as f*ck to get a setup that will actually produce anything without being too much of a hassle for anyone with a full time schedule. But it’s a dream. Something I will put on my bucket list.

For now, cruising those grow journals on http://www.rollitup.com are enough to satiate me. The details of the grows and the experience some of those guys have is absolutely incredible.

The Unappreciated

The truth is, there are people in this world, and they happen to be the majority, who go about their lives every day performing the menial tasks that society requires with little or no recognition of their work. This is for the janitors, the grocery baggers, the taxi drivers, and whoever makes your coffee in the morning. This is for the unsung heroes of the world.

All the comforts we take for granted in this world are enough to make anyone with a conscience blush. There is a sense of determination that goes unnoticed that must be required to withstand not only that which you must do every day, but the fact that no one seems to notice.

Happiness is achieved through feeling successful, and people garner individual success much through others praise. It is through the eyes of others that we see ourselves, and because of this it is a sad, sad truth that so many people walk about each day feeling forsaken and unnoticed.

Smile at someone who you think doesn’t know how much you value the work they do. Even if you don’t know them, give them a smile of reassurance.

How To Make It In America

That theme song, “I Need a Dollar” by Aloe Blacc has got to be one of the catchiest song’s I’ve ever heard, and continues to be one of my absolute favorite aspects of the show.

Let me just say, this is the new show to watch. After Entourage ended there was a short period of grieving, but now ‘How to Make it in America’ has filled the void.

Based on two young men, one Dominican one Jewish, both born and raised in Brooklyn, the story follows these two on their attempts to succeed in a world determined to keep them down. Although not the most incredible acting, the plot alone is enough to captivate anyone’s attention.

The sex, drugs, and epic lifestyles that the characters in the series experience are riveting and inspiring. The do-it-yourself, come-up-from-nothing mentality of the pair make you want for them to succeed, but inevitably there is some issue along the way. Thank you Hollywood.

And finally, the guest starring of Kid Cudi complete this show for what it is: a perfect portrayal of todays most intriguing alternative lifestyle. He plays the part perfectly, looking exactly how we all wish we could go to New York City and live off odd jobs pulled off with friends, all while looking like a movie star.

420

Just felt the need to update viewers that we are, in fact, a mere 10 views away from having 420 all-time reads. This is monumental, a shining moment that will come and go all too quickly; luckily this blackberry kush can stop time.

 

I can’t get this song out of my head between Big Sean’s flow and the amazing chorus:

Where is Marcus Vick?

Marcus Vick, Center

Regardless of what we think of Michael at this point, there is something fundamentally wrong with the Vick family. After the elder brother’s well publicized stint in prison due to his dog fighting ventures, everyone was quick to label him the bad son.

So he graduates high school in a dream, offers from all the top programs, Virginia Tech, University of Miami, Virginia, NC State, the list goes on. After settling on Virginia Tech, he arrived on campus to the disappointment of being red shirted as a true freshman. Even so, he made his mark on the school athletically, grabbing peoples attention with his dual-weapon abilities, comprised of his running abilities as well as his passing skills.

In 2005, Marcus wowed fans by moving from third string quarterback to starter. Not just starter, but quarterback of a team that went 11-2 on the season, earning a spot at the ACC Championship Game, as well as winning the ACC Coastal Division title and the Gator Bowl. In 24 games, Marcus Vick recorded 2,868 passing yards for 19 touchdowns. On the ground he rushed 184 times for 492 yards and 6 touchdowns.

Despite his promising numbers on the field, Marcus Vick’s legal troubles soon began to show through and coaches took note of his terrible character. During his time at Virginia Tech, Vick had 9 motor vehicle violations which resulted first in a suspended license, but which later landed him in court when he was caught driving once again. On January 27, 2004, Vick was arrested for supposedly having sex with a 15-year old girl when he was 20. On field, Vick was punished for giving the crowd the finger during a game at West Virginia University. Everything culminated ┬áin the Gator Bowl of ’06 when Vick stomped on the leg of another player, future pro-bowler Elvis Dumervil, after the play had died. Although Vick claims to have apologized after the game, Dumervil maintains that he did no such thing. University of Louisville was astounded that Vick had maliciously attacked one of their players and filed a complaint with Virginia Tech which ultimately led to Marcus’ removal from the football team.

In response to his being kicked out of Virginia Tech, Vick stated, “It’s not a big deal. I’ll just move on to the next level, baby.”

But wait. Where is Marcus now? We haven’t seen him in the NFL since his short stint with the dolphins, and he hasn’t been in the news in a while. It should be noted that three days after Vick left Virginia Tech, he was arrested in the parking lot of a McDonalds for reportedly pointing a gun at three unarmed teenagers. When he was asked to provide his address, he indicated a mansion belonging to his brother, Michael.

So in closing, I think we should commend Michael Vick for working so hard to isolate his madness from humanity as it seems a genetic impulse to wreak havoc for these two brothers.
