I Ate The Apple

I Ate The Apple

     Lots of people say that Adam ruined everything for humans when he ate the apple. I mean if it wasn’t for him, then we’d be able to see the goods of anyone who we secretly lust over without feeling ashamed; we’d just be seeing them in all their glory. Then again if it wasn’t for him we wouldn’t have sh*t like Retro Jordans, and Gucci flip flops…ok maybe the flip flops but you get my drift. With his debut album, “I Ate The AppleJon Oh hopes to drive this point home by giving you his many perspectives on life.
The album starts out with the track “Hi Young World” which is a message to the youth. Basically explaining to them that they can acquire anything that their mind conceives, but to be careful as to how you obtain it, cause it can be costly. As the album plays on Jon Oh delves deeper into his message by explaining what gave him these ‘perspectives’; each song teaching a different lesson. For example, one of the highlights of the album, “Tut” is a drug-induced explanation of the passion behind his music; while telling you why you should find yours as well. Most of IATA is completed in this fashion; wrapping life lessons up in witty, intoxicated, soliloquies about his journey through life. He made sure to cover the whole spectrum as he dropped jewels about love, abandonment, drug abuse, even about the racial tension brewing around the country on the track “March To Zion
The media’ll make you wanna go and kill whites/ but that ain’t in my demeanor/its the evil they tryna channel
By the end of the album, we find our dear narrator renouncing all of the vices he’s gained throughout the album in exchange for self-love. This album shapes up to be an interesting look into the transition of a street urchin turned backpack/street rapper. A few minutes short of an hour, by the end of it, you’ll easily run it back several times just to be sure you caught everything. You can stream IATA now on Tidal, Spotify, or buy it on iTunes and Google!

LOOKS LIKE THE END PRODUCT IS GONNA BE CRAZY!!  THE SONG “SING ABOUT ME” WAS ALWAYS DOPE ASF TO ME BUT I NEVER THOUGHT HE’D RELEASE A VIDEO FOR IT. CHECK THE GRAFITI MURAL AT THE END.

Really Macaulay????????

 

SO SURFING THE NET TODAY RESEARCHING CONTENT FOR MY #THROWBACKTHURSDAY POST AND I FOUND THIS.  I’M NOT REALLY SURE WHY ITS GOING VIRAL, BUT THE SIGNIFICANCE OF IT REFERS TO ANDY WARHOL WHO DID THE SAME EXACT VIDEO BASICALLY, BUT WITH A BURGER.  EVEN THO I’M TELLING YOU HE’S DOING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING BUT EATING A PIZZA, YOU’LL PROBABLY STILL WATCH IT FOR WHATEVER REASON(JUST LIKE I DID), & 2 MINUTES INTO IT, YOU’LL PROBABLY THINK TO YOURSELF, WHY AM I WATCHING THIS? CAUSE ITS MACAULAY CULKIN, YOUR FAVORITE CHILD STAR, THATS WHY

Bad Santa!!!

Since the day you were born, 9 times outta 10 Santa has been portrayed as a jolly, cookie loving, rosie cheek, benevolent fat guy, but what do you really know about Santa?  Well for starters lets get the fact that he was originally crafted from Odin, the norse Supreme God.  His horse was said to acquire 4 extra legs in the winter (which gave him 8), which is when he would fly around the world giving out gifts to good kids, and punishments to the bad ones

I guess this Santa was too cool, so around the time of the 4th Century they found a new model for Santa, St. Nicholas of Myra; A “trust-fund baby” who was said to be a devout follower of Christ, so he spent most of his wealth on helping out the needy, sick, and suffering. As good as this Sounds, since Christians were persecuted under the then Roman Emperor, Good Ole St. Nick was exiled, imprisoned, and tortured quite a bit.  Therefore  this Santa was no better in physical description,  but much closer personality-wise(with the exeption of the fact that he was a brawler  who barred none if need be).  He in fact was more known for being a Robin Hood like outlaw, who fought the rich, and protected & gave to the less fortunate.

Here our beloved Santa is pictured slapping a “Bishop” for saying something about Jesus that was not to his liking.  Good Ole St. Nick did so in front of a large group, including the Emperor Constatine, so the “event” is actually noted in history!!  (Actual Painting Still Resides In Turkey!!)

The man we know as Santa today is completely made up, and just about as fabricated as his outfit!!! One thing for sure though at least society has kept his two most important traits alive; his generousity, as well as his ‘rowdiness‘.  Every year there’s around 20,000 “Rent-a-Santas” hired around the US, and I’m guessing they all feel like there’s only room for 1 Santa, as it seems every year there’s a recoreded brawl of our favorite Holiday Icon(s) battling it out for Top Santa is my guess….

On the left we have footage from 2010′s “Santa Claus Brawl” that erupted at “Santacon” and on the right we’ve fast forwarded to  the current year, and as you could tell there’s been more contestants getting involved  every year, I hope that this problem gets sorted out before this escalates into war...

Well I’m hoping you found this blog as informing and interesting as I did.  Just in casw you wanted to learn more I left links to sites/pages where I pirated my info. Speaking of pirates, did you know a group of them took his remains in a raid and they’re now spread all across the world??? Guess thats why we feel holiday cheer far and wide………..
