• enny is so goddamn talented. i’m always captivated when she’s on the screen because her wordplay and tone always has me leaning in. i love her writing and im gonna do a deep dive into her stuff. the cinematography of both this video and the original are so slick. it really has me inspired on how to light and capture black women on film. i also need this to be a series — this insight into their intimate jam sessions. amino also slid on this as always and again showing how versatile he is as an artist his inflections and cadence area always an exercise i love to listen to.

  • i missed blogging. the process of just getting thoughts out of my head and onto a site mixed with some customization is hard to come by on the web. being able to freely express onself online in a creative way is not a focus and quick timeline based info is. it seems fewer spaces are dedicated to preserving your long form thoughts. everything is falling into a feed and i don’t want that experience anymore. i don’t want to pivot to video and don’t need all my information delivered that way either.

    i like reading blogs and discovering and learning new things. i find people interesting and have been finding the social media focus of presentation and curated persona to be unrelatable. not every interest needs to be monetized and i find that even extended opinions are being placed behind a paywall. hobbies are important and i don’t want to focus on an audience or metrics of engagement.

    so i’m using this site to explore my interests and carve out a place online that i can update frequently and on my own terms. i also have some ideas i want to explore about creating more online tools for others cause this seems to be a space where others might be interested in the blogging tools i’m looking for as well.

  • i need this lighting

  • for someone not into violent horror movies i’m absolutely fascinated by all i’ve seen/heard about about in a violent nature.

  • i feel good going into this year. a slow and intentional start. i’ve had my quiet mornings to really contemplate how i want to engage with this year and i’m not putting pressure on myself to accomplish these any specific way.

    i told myself i’m going to travel — i will be in barcelona at some point within the next 6 months.

    i’m going to take more photos. candid, considered, and not too overthought. i’m going to enjoy using my cameras again and find other people to take photos with/of.

    the need to explore and try new things is high. i’m trying to see everyday as an opportunity to get out there and do other things.

    i’m going to produce an album this year and direct a short film and publish my zine. i feel comfortable in my ideas now and not afraid to just put my shit out there

  • i’ve been thinking of getting a steam deck mainly due to the community it has. the hackability and versatility fits into my tech boy dreams. i love the translucent limited edition version but also feel i could replicate it myself through customs mods.

    i will absolutely be playing the sims and farming games most of the time. to be able to get into cyberpunk 2077, no man’s sky, my time at sandrock, coral island, hopefully palia in this powerful handheld form excites me.

  • so i like the interface for wordpress already more than any other app i’ve used for blogging.

    the scrollable menu to edit text makes sense

  • this is a new journey for me.
