I’m climbing a never ending ladder.
It is a ladder of the highest quality.
But now, steps creak with every footfall.
and specks of paint seem to stain my hands.
It is two feet wide and who knows how long it is.
It also changes colors.
When I first looked at it, it was a bright, sunny shade of yellow.
But now it changes into different shades of humdrum blue.
Oh the things that have passed by as I climbed.
People, Trees, Buildings, Mountains
They seem to disappear with every inch I rise.
Normally the ladder stays straight; aimed squarely at the heavens.
But at times it sways.
And at times, it breaks.
The weather is pretty bad too.
Rain, Snow, Hail.
Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Lightning.
It also gets boring most of the time.
Climbing through clouds is not what I have in mind.
Sometimes birds poop in my hair.
And random things fall on my face.
From a playboy magazine to a freshly laced pair of wingtips.
The gum other people have chewed on and leave on the steps sometimes clings to my shoes.
The underside of my well-worn Tigers is stained in intricate rubber patterns of cinnamon red, spearmint green and bubblegum blue.
When its dark, being along can be a scary thing.
Jumping off could be a solution for all these things
But here’s a question I ask of you.
As I call this ladder synonymous to poo.
And continue to climb up
If you were stuck on this ladder too,
Would you give up when your halfway through?
(I should really be writing my stories but when you get brain farts you kinda get these visions of what life could be seen as, in an artsy way.)
I mean, Johnson is giving me 5 extra credit points because I went to some concert that she promoted.
I paid 5 bucks, saw her, wrote my name on the her list, and left.
and Channel/Backer is giving out ONE HUNDRED FREEKING POINTS if you recycle ONE HUNDRED plastic bottles or cans.
AND you have to give him the money from it too.
And unless I find an ad for the newspaper, I have to shell out FIFTY BUCKS or else I get a C for not getting “Advertisement Points”
I MEAN, THESE ARE SUCKER POINTS. IT’S LIKE A LEGAL BRIBE FOR YOUR GRADE.
I will gladly take them because my grades are at stake, but giving money for your grade is kind-of unethical, don’t you think?
But hey, it’s your choice fool, do what YOU want.
these have been my two cents for the day.
chris the loserfish.
Been a few days since I’ve made this tumblr.
and I’m determined to stuff it chock full of my nonsense.
No not your nonsense, MY nonsense.
So I’m going to talk about one of my most favorite hobbies.
right now, my iTunes is on repeat/shuffle, and I’m hearing some songs I’ve had for quite some time for the very first time. But when you’re a music downloading mogul, this is not a surprise.
My collection, which I am
damn proud of.
In the beginning, Life started off mainstream, went off the radar for a few years, came back slowly, reached enlightenment and now my ears listen to basically anything and everything.
A Gradual Expansion:
- Mainstream Rock and Pop (and Kpop)
- Hardcore, hxc, Punk, LOUD music
- Indie, Post-Hardcore, Acoustic
- Classical, 70’s 80’s 90’s, Hip-Hop
- Underground Hip-Hop, Electro, Instrumentals
- Trance & Remixes
Back then, I was even more immature than I am now, and Music had planted some strong roots in me.
Even today music is my life, but back in the day I became whatever it told me to.
So I nearly became a scene kid.
And a Fob…
Then I wanted to be in a band. (Still Do)
Now my ears crave something new everyday, so my collection will continue to expand. Or until the Media Police finally catches me for illegally downloading thousands of songs and albums.
But this hobby won’t die. It’ll stick on me like a parasite. Slowly feeding off me until I pass away.
Whether thats a good thing or not; only God (or Connie) knows.
But I sure hope I don’t end up looking like this old fart.
ehehe. But seriously, NO.
Why am I a loserfish?
Well today, after grabbin a bite to eat with Eddie, I bought one of those Visa gift card things at Wal-mart so I could buy stuff online.
Namely, a black version of Paul’s beanie:
Howeverz, This was NOT availible at the OBEY online store. (grrr, many expletives here…) Well, they had a blood red and a stale mustard yellow, but I saw those at the mall and they were downright expensive, not to mention ugly as
When I finally found it at ActiveRideShop, I almost crapped my pants. This color was out at every website I went to, and I almost gave up but lo and behold, it. was. here.
Price?: $20.00 + Shipping = $28.00
For a cheap ass asian who shops in the sale section of brand name stores + your local savings stores, (Shout out to Nordstrom Rack for nice kicks and Marshalls for cheap OBEY!) $28 dollars.. IS TOO MUCH FOR MEHZ.
BUT, AHAH, WHATS THIS?!?
ME: A PROMOTIONAL CODE!? I MUST FIND ONE ON THE INTERNET!!
Google produced ALOT of sites that had promotional codes, but most of them were either expired or for 20 - 50% off, so I settled for one that came with free shipping.
PROMO CODE: ACTIVERIDEFREE
$28.00 - 8.00 = $20.00 hallelujahpraisethelord
Saving eight bucks, I couldn’t help but grin.
UNTIL THE URBAN OUTFITTERS SALE SECTION WAS SELLING IT FOR $14.00 OH MY F%#$$#K^^%^*&G*%.
so now I can’t buy my New Desmond Readers and my grey Fingerless Gloves.
and I still haven’t done my homework.
woe is me.
(My version of NewYear’sResolutions)
the beginning of a
the decade is coming to a close; and Mayan prophecies loom over our heads, but when you believe in the son of the almighty, all powerful and jealous deity who died for your sins..
pfffffffft to everything else.
Mind Expansions and Realizations: Find your passion NOW before the system forces you to. So get off your lazy ass and do something you normally wouldn’t do. This could range from taking your surburban family vehicle off roading to eating a different type of jam with your toast. BUT IN DOING SO, THIS MAY HOPEFULLY INSPIRE YOU TO DO SOMETHING NEW WITH EVERY OPPORTUNITY.
Freshly Glued Paperbacks and Pickled Brains: If you are within the tender age of 11 - 20; Study. Study Study Study. Don’t ask me why I’m telling you to do this; you’ll thank me later when you drive around your flying automobile made by Italian/Japanese engineers and make 200K+ every year while owning numerous villas in places all over the world.
The Human Body, and it’s Fatal Flaws: Those dark circles under your eyes are not hot. Nor are they good for your health. So despite the irony that I should be sleeping instead of writing this, GO. TO. BED. (EXPLETIVE) you (EXPLETIVE).
durrDURRdahH: Use higher vocabulary. and stop mumbling. its not sexy.
Freshly Glued Paperbacks^2: To achieve the goal above, I suggest cracking open a few books, such as:
Let The Great World Spin by Colum McCann
Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides
The Interrogative Mood: A Novel? by Padgett Powell
Hebrews by Anonymous
truly good eatins’ for the mind.
For your own benefit: Please do your homework and stop annoying your parents, it’s not nice
This new year will be ferocious, because it’s the year of the Tiger.
