Four black teens in Philadelphia with nothing other than weekly tranpasses and opinions. Still, the criticism and general interpretation seem to change from day to day regardless of aforementioned teens consistency.
Whatever. We're not doing anyone some terrible injustice, and we don't claim to be changing the world or enlightening the folk beyond belief or recognition. Credences, food for thought, images, a few laughs here and there, and opinions are all that we can offer you. Whether you choose to accept or decline, you are here, as are we, daily.
To face the rain or sunshine, parade or riot, cookout or Saturday detention..We ride Septa.

I've had about thirty arguments defending his actions today.Yeah,he broke the shit out of their expensive ass cameras,yeah, he humiliated them and made them look like idiots,yeah,it probably wasn't a good career move..But I bet like five his next cd will still outsell 50's.Not that I have anything against 50, but it has to be said that at least Kanye can back up his arrogance. (Anyone remember 50's promise to retire if Mr. West outsold him?). I've got a point,don't worry I'm getting to it.In my eyes,what Kanye did was respectable,Paparazzi talk to celebrities any way that they feel like,and on top of that they harass them for hours on end in order to take pictures that the chosen celebrities will not make a cent on,while the paparazzi get thousands depending on the victim.So do I think what Kanye did was wrong? Not at all. I mean,following people around and taking pictures is not a fucking profession. That's called stalking in all 50 states.Stalkers get their asses beat.
Some of the things that people don't want anymore amaze me,everything pictured I got for $10..Yeah,$10 for all of it.
Eight (hopefully) SLR cameras.I need one for photography class this year,and was getting ready to drop a buck or 80 on one anyway,
Some hats for samir,the starter cap still had the tag on it.
and some books,
Excerpt from "Poetry for life."
"O,sweep of stars over harlem streets, O,little breath of oblivion that is night. A city building To a mother's song. A city dreaming To a lullaby. Reach up your hand, dark boy, and take a star. Out of the little breath of oblivion That is night, Take just One star." - Langston Hughes
"I know there's a first time for everything. The first time I let her in my bed she got wetter than the perfect storm,that we weatherin together,and this the first time that I ever considered wedding rings"
