A Million Little Pieces

"What is more important, fame or integrity. What is more valuable, money or happiness. What is more dangerous, success or failure. If you look to others for fulfillment, you will never be fulfilled. If your happiness depends on money, you will never be happy. Be content with what you have and take joy in the way things are. When you realize you have all you need, the World belongs to you."-James Frey

My good Friend Beenish out in Libya pass me along this quick food for thought. So I let you guys do the dishes and tell me what you think ?

Ganesha The Lord of Success


Ganesha has an elephantine countenance with a curved trunk and big ears, and a huge pot-bellied body of a human being. He is the Lord of success and destroyer of evils and obstacles. He is also worshipped as the god of education, knowledge, wisdom and wealth. In fact, Ganesha is one of the five prime Hindu deities (Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva and Durga being the other four) whose idolatry is glorified as the panchayatana puja. (

Lets start with Ganesha's head symbolizing the Atman or the soul. The ultimate supreme reality of human existence, and his human body signifies Maya or the earthly existence of human beings. The elephant head denotes wisdom and its trunk represents Om, the sound symbol of cosmic reality.


In his upper right hand Ganesha holds a goad, which helps him propel mankind forward on the eternal path and remove obstacles from the way. The noose in Ganesha's left hand is a gentle implement to capture all difficulties.

Ganesha is also the destroyer of vanity, selfishness and pride. He is the personification of material universe in all its various magnificent manifestations.

Long Live The 3

Parish Carter and His 4.0 music group did there thing and so did the artist Just Real. My man Sleek killed his set getting down once again. Much more to come this is just the beginning so every one stay tuned for another {Close Encounter from the 3rd_Kind} Check the video out under the pictures of 3rd_kind on the 1's and 2's!

Adult Swim

Chase and I decided to just go to my dude Tim's apartment complex and just set up and see who would come out and a decent number of people ended up coming out just out of suspicions of what was going on at the pool. We just had some pizza, drinks and music and it turned from a regular sunday into a sunday fun day.

Finally a decent pair of 3D glasses that don't make you look foolish! Now we can enjoy 3D movies and TV programs in style!


Orlando wasn't so Magic..........

Chase and I decided to go downtown and just watch the Magic get scraped by the Celtics. Not a very competitive game but being downtown was fun, we haven't been able to truly enjoy downtown Orlando since we aren't 21 yet but then again we've been to a couple spots. Looks like the Celtics will be sweeping the Magic, which means a rematch from 2 years ago, Lakers vs Celtics!

A Comic Shop

So today there was a party at a store across the street from our school called “A Comic Shop”. Now I must admit I am not a big comic book reader, I just never was really introduced to them when I was younger so I never really found it amusing but after being in the store and receiving a free comic book, I think I may have a new hobby! The owner of the comic shop is a film teacher at Full Sail and he was the coolest guy ever. The event was fun nothing too over the top but it was decent enough to bring out a good number of people. I advise anyone who isn’t into comic books to defiantly check these out. I also had my friend Tim Yager who I had class with before and is currently helping Chase and I with an event that we will be sharing soon. So stayed tuned!

Happy Birthday Malcolm X!

Malcolm X is one of my teachers, yes that may sound funny but I study his word and philosophy. This man is one of the reason why this site is up, he makes me strive harder in life and to help advance my brothers and sisters. Now I don't agree 100% with what he stood for but this man was so influential, he has left his mark on American history in a way many before and after him haven't. I will be reading his autobiography very soon because I hear its a must read! Malcolm X was a true revolutionary and his life should be celebrated and it is celebrated by many people across the world. So lets take sometime out of our day to celebrate the life of a great revolutionary and civil rights leader Malcolm X!

"Mad As Hell"

This is dialogue from the movie "Network" that came out in 1976. This video is really powerful but the funny thing is that 24 years later what was said is still relevant and 30 years from now (hopefully not) this video will still be accurate.

TVB Why Spot Now

This is a video from class and it surprise many of us in the room. Take a good look at the number in this video and really evaluate you relationship with Television. Men lie women lie but the numbers don't. This short clip will flood you with the statical numbers of television. Remember television is one of the largest influences of trends, themes and culture and these numbers seem to prove that statement.

Want a Revloution you Gotta Evolve

Change seems to slowly be approaching us. Dean and I have been seeing this commercial as we have been following the NBA Playoffs. It's been brought to us by Florida's very own Gatorade. I appose most commercial advertisements and their influence on consumers, but I'm glad to see some positive advertisements. Now when you get thirsty on these dog days of summer grab a Gatorade.

Why can't life always be this easy.......

Sunday mourning is such a beautiful time, getting up and not having school or any work to do just calls for relaxation. So we got up early and just went to the pool and just talked about are week and just bounced ideas for future endeavors. It’s always good to go by the pool and clear are head and just appreciate the weather and every other positive thing going on in our lives.

Video Shoot

So Chase, Anthony (also known as DJ Ricochet) and I went to a video shoot for an international artist (I can’t remember his name but it is something weird). Anthony knew someone who was affiliated with the artist and they needed extra people for the video so Chase and I decided to help out and be in it. This was my first time with an actual part in a video (nothing big but small role) or in a video in general. Chase and I had a meeting and were forced to leave the video early; hopefully our part stays in the video so we can show you the entire final project.

Date with a Shadow


"The meeting with oneself is, at first, the meeting with one's own shadow. The shadow is a tight passage, a narrow door, whose painful constriction no one is spared who goes down to the deep well. But one must learn to know oneself in order to know who one is. For what comes after the door is, surprisingly enough, a boundless expanse full of unprecedented uncertainty, with apparently no inside and no outside, no above or no below, no here and no there, no mine and no thine, no good and no bad. It is the world of water, where all life floats in suspension"

Will's Wisdom

"I know who I am, I know what I believe and I am willing to die for it!"

This guy is so awesome, this whole video is like religion to me, I watch this video every Sunday just to remind myself what I stand for and what I want out of life. Will Smith is such an inspiring person because he is a smart educated man who maximized his talents and uses them to create positive messages for people. He seeks to make the world around him better and that’s what I am set out to accomplish. This video is something that we all should watch and share with are friends and love ones.

The LeBron 2010 season over to soon...

So this is what was in store for the 25-year-old superstar, the heir to the throne, the chosen one, the king, Mr. Akron. The best player on the planet (IMO) lost in the 2nd round of the 2010 NBA playoffs, after having the best record for the 2nd consecutive season, the Cleveland Cavaliers fail to make it to the NBA Finals and anything short of that is not acceptable when you have the 2 time (back-back) NBA MVP, 1st Team All NBA, NBA 1st team for Defense, and All-Star. Yes, we are talking about LeBron James! Now I will admit he didn’t deliver in game 5, a game that was one of the most important in his career if not the most important. I have watched too many Cavalier games to come to a conclusion I’m just speech less. I can honestly say, Kobe would have never went into a game 5 situation like that, not be aggressive and willing his team (last year game 5 of the western conference finals, Kobe had 22 points and 8 assist and led the Lakers to a game 5 win at home to make the series 3-2 Lakers) or Jordan (series tied 2-2 with flu Jordan scores 38 points and gave the Bulls a 3-2 lead in the NBA Finals). Now one thing I will say is both Kobe and Jordan had better players and coaches throughout their career lets not mistake that. The Lakers do have the best team in the NBA and the best coach. Jordan had a better team and coach than LeBron. I still feel LeBron is better than both of those players at this stage of his career but this series will always be remembered, as the series were LeBron folded under pressure, yes I know the team didn’t help him either and yes despite the decent number Shaq is 38 and looked liked he was 48 out there. Antwan Jamison isn’t all that plus he is 33 years old going on 34. Anthony Parker is a good player but he couldn’t start on any other NBA team and MoWill is too much of a streaky player who plays no defense and chokes on the big stage. Mike Brown needs to be fired but I have to give him credit on the task he had this season with molding all these new players together. With the off-season approaching the question now lingers what will LeBron do this off season. Will he leave for New York to play in the big market and play in Mike D’Antoni’s fun run and gun offense? Or will he go to New Jersey (best choice IMO), were they have a very good young talented team, Devin Harris a all-star caliber point guard, Brook Lopez a young franchise center with superstar potential written all over him. A bunch of young players, a potential number 1 draft pick, cap room to sign two max free agents, a new stadium being built in downtown Brooklyn, a rich Russian owner, a potential big time coach and the X factor LeBrons cousin, mentor, favorite rapper and friends mogul Jay-Z. There is a chance he can go to Chicago and play along side Derrick Rose and Noah but with the play of Derrick Rose needing the ball in his hands can Lebron and Rose co-exist? And last but not least Miami were best friend D-Wade is begging for help and Lebron and Wade have had conversations about potentially being teammates (Yes, I’ve herd about the clippers rumors but I beg to differ). In all lets see how this off season plays out, for this is the best off season in sports history and we all are apart of it now lets sit back and see how things fold out. As much as I hate to say it, the Lakers will win the Championship.

Photos by Octavia Schofield

So Chase and I decided we needed a little photo shoot since we knew we were going to be releasing the blog in the up and coming days. These pictures were done by a fellow schoolmate of mine who did an awesome job (Octavia Schofield). We had a fun time taking these photos at Full Sail; We also stopped in the school store (Diesel Bean) and had a brief conversation with some students and took pictures also.

I go 110%

This quote hit me hard becuase all I do is strive to be the best at what ever I do. I can't see myself settling for less nor can I walk away knowing I didn't put all my possible effort. I use to try and dumb things down for people, but now I realized I am a talented individual and if I am not understood, what can I do? If I walk out the house, I will have something on that is Dope, if I go to school, I will do my work to the best of my ability basically any choice or action I chose, I am going for the impossible, do the unthinkable and reach the unreachable!

"All we Do is Win"


So about a week ago Dean, Sky and I had a night at The Roxy with my man Kerry B. and Dante. Just our luck Mr. We The Best was in the house Dj Khaled. It was real inspiring the energy was off the charts. He performed his new song with T-pain and Ludacris "All we Do is Win". Kerry B. had me up in V.i.P with the nights guest. 102 Jamz was out there supporting the Orlando Night Life. #Raw_Wisdom From The 3rd_Kind

A couple moths ago Full Sail University had a guess speaker and it was no other than Jonny Cupcakes. He spoke about how he built his company with no start up loans or help from any body, he strictly just did what he loved and invested his money into his own business and now he is a multi millionaire of a street brand called Jonny Cupcakes. His clothes are unique and very exclusive, which is good in this day and age were everyone is copying the latest trend, Cupcakes only makes a limited number of shirts when he makes a new design. His presentation and words were very inspiring and useful and chase and I will always remember this day because it was the day that we said we are going to be what we set out to be and nothing and no one is going to stop that or get in are way.

Since Chase and I only go home 4 times a year (we go to school all year round) we made the best of are 10 days, these pictures don't show half of what we did but these are the high lights of it. I always love going back home (Danbury, CT) I have all my friends and family back there and like they say, there is no place like home. My boy Steve and friends Susan and Christina came out with us for those who are wondering who are the people in the pictures.
