Here’s a little Sunday humor for you. We have all have this issue. Some people just might not want to get off of their high horse and admit it. We’re not talking to them. I’m talking to you! There are just those things that we love to do but suck at doing. Like me for instance, I wish I could sing all of the songs I love but unfortunately I sound like a screeching dying cat when I attempt to. Or that I could play basketball like my mom or my brother because although I do well at other sports, I seem to have problem excelling in “the family sport”. What is something that you love to do but suck at doing?
Here’s something you photographers and artists might fall in love with. The pixelstick is a brand new light painting tool capable of everything from photo-real renders to amazing abstract ribbons. This thing interacts with it’s surrounding environment – throwing big swaths of glow on the ground, capturing reflections in windows, and hiding behind/snaking in and out of objects in the foreground. Production starts in 2014, I believe. Continue reading

On leaving the music business:
“The music business isn’t really real business. People have titles but they’re all fronts. You’re told that you’re something just so someone else can tell you what to do. Like so many people out here are bosses or suppose to be presidents or chairmans or whatever, and they always have to ask somebody to cut a check. Me, as a boss, I’ve never had to ask anybody one time in my life. I wanna do something, it’s done. There ain’t nobody I gotta ask. I’m the boss.”
“I’m not really trying to be in Hip-Hop at 42 and 3 and looking like the old man at the club. I never wanted to do that. I always wanted to do fashion. I always wanted to do movies. I enjoy business… of being an entrepreneur on every level. But I really enjoy it. Like I really enjoy my independence. I enjoy doing business without anyone’s help.”
On his infamous ego:
“That was a role. Me, the hip hop mogul, that was a ‘thing.’ It was funny to me. Not to say it was a joke but it was a part I was playing 100%.
“I feel like I push people to excellence no matter what and that’s undisputed. So everyone that was around me, the work ethic I instilled and the taste that I gave them, it’s all reflected in a very positive situation for people’s whole lives.”
“I don’t think there’s an issue with him. I just think we took different paths. I’m proud of everything that he’s done and I’m proud of everything I’ve done since then. I feel like I’ve done a lot and I feel like whatever his dreams are, he’s made his dreams come true, but my dreams aren’t the same as his.”
On people thinking he’s broke:
“My quality of living has never been compromised. I got galleries all over the world. I did start Rachel Roy and sell half of it to Jones New York and I don’t see anybody else doing that right now. I’ve done so many other things. I just haven’t tried to advertise it. So I guess people’s perceptions are different but I just don’t care.
“I know some businessmen that are never known for what they’re doing. I know billionaires that rock coach. Everyone that I know with real money is low-key. Me being an authentic businessman, I just wanted to be an authentic businessman. I’ve lived the Hip-Hop mogul dream. Shit is old. You can’t do it past 35.”
“For the first time in 40 years of surveys, a majority of Americans support legalizing pot. National polling on the issue of marijuana legalization began in 1969. While legalization has received growing support since the 1990s, 2013 marks the first time such support reached a majority.
The poll, conducted by the Pew Research Center from March 13-17, found that 52% of the 1,501 adults surveyed favored legalizing the use of pot while only 45% were opposed to legalization. The 1969 Gallup poll on the same subject revealed just 12% favored legalization, while 84% were opposed.” HT
