As usual, nothing special…
July 30, 2015
For the last couple of months I’ve been trying my best to really declutter my life. Selling, trashing and donating things that I honestly just have no need for. An over-abundance in clothes, sneakers, books, comics, art prints, dvd’s, cd’s, trading cards, toys, video games, random electronics, pay stubs, bank statements, etc…hell, I even sold my car and downgraded to an extremely base model car (it doesn’t even have power windows), that gets great gas mileage. Freeing myself of all of these things that I just really don’t need does wonders for my mind, stress levels and overall well-being.
Along with getting rid of most of my material possessions, I’m trying to cut down usage of the internet and social media. That, I can blog about another day because that is a whole different monster in itself. I will let you know a HUGE web declutter tip that will do wonders for your soul though…UNSUBSCRIBING FROM E-MAIL LISTS.
For the past 2 months, I’ve simply been unsubscribing from email lists that entice me to buy stuff. It was kind of hard at first, knowing that I will never ‘be the first’ to hear of a limited release date or ‘end of year’ sale, but what you never knew existed could wind up saving you tons of money in the long run. I’ve unsubscribed from all of my sneaker sites subscriptions, retail stores subscriptions (the H&M’s and Forever 21’s of the world), concert, music, art and ‘streetwear’ subscriptions, car rental subscriptions, college alumni subscriptions, travel site subscriptions, and so much other bullshit subscriptions. The only email lists I am apart of is Red Box, because I want to know what movies are coming out for me to rent (and I like the promo codes they send out every now and then) and stubhub.com (so I can go to sporting events cheaper).
If you sign up for these sites to receive promo codes, you can always go to a site like retailmenot.com to cop a promo code instead. Like I said, the feeling of unsubscribing from a e-mail list is AMAZING and it will do wonders for your life! I love checking my inbox now only to get a few emails from people that I actually know with subjects that are actually important matters.
Now I don’t want to be a hypocrite and tell you to unsubscribe from mailing lists while I have a Fur Face Boy mailing list, so if you ever get an email from my list and you just feel that it’s useless marketing fluff or just plain annoying, please unsubscribe! It’s all good with me.

Here are some shit panoramics I tried to take this weekend…
And there goes another weekend I’ll never get back.
July 24, 2015
So I was fuck’n around in Spotify yesterday and came across some songs from when I between the ages of 13 to 16. Damn, these tracks still good AF…
Matthew Sweet – Sick of Myself (1995)
The Posies – Flavor of the Month (1993)
Letters to Cleo – Awake (1995)
Ash – Girl From Mars (1996)
Smoking Popes – Mrs. You and Me (1994)
Man, I miss those days. How bout you?

Isn’t it weird how we all go to work every day, striving for the weekend, and then when the weekend comes you hang out with some friends, do a little drinking, eat at a restaurant, watch your movies, do a little shopping, this and that, blah, blah, blah, then Monday comes by again and you strive for the same thing…week in and week out. Then you pretty much just fade away.
I guess that’s life in a nutshell.
