Best Justice Video EVER!, What'chu know bout STEPHEN SPROUSE!, & Blast from the Past: British Vogue 2002
This is dedicated to all my guy friends who are official haters! LMAO! This is the best video ever! ha ha ha! Than look at Pedro jumping around in the audience!?!?! He is such a big KID! HA! Xavier is really humble. Gaspar......
I LOVE IT!
It makes me feel like its really a Michael Jackson song or a song that all these people that are being impersonated, that they would really be into it if they heard the song.
This video clip is just pure 100 percent FUN! Makes me feel like a little kid with my Michael Jackson glove! 1,2,3,4 FIGHT! Get ready to IGNITE!
You can check this link out:
Than go to Rick's Slick Picks, Click on Justice in Miami.
Okay, Rick (from the skateboard world, he's New York hip hop head also) is someone I have known for years and the person who filmed it is a friend of mine named Ryan Monihan who finds this clip very funny. At first I did but then I was like, hey, those guys are really nice and that was kinda mean of you to tell Rick to ask those guys questions like that. Rick has no idea who Justice is and they don't know who he is and Ryan wanted to use them against each other. I guess its funny. See for yourself. If I didn't know the Justice guys I think I would think its pretty funny but, just for yourself.
Wow, Stephen was Andy Warhol's friend and first clothing designer collaborator. He did a line for Louis Vuitton years ago and now they just did a tribute to him this year. Seems like everyone is CRAZY for him now. Susan Kirschbaum wrote an article in 2003 about how Larry Clark and I were going to collaborate with Stephen on some scarves since Larry owns all of Warhol's original scarves. When most older gentlemen blow their noses on regular handkerchiefs, Clark used those Warhol scarves! I swear, it was a truly surreal thing to witness at film festivals! Larry pulling out a neon camouflaged scarf. But a few years later Benjamin Liu, another one of Warhol's confidants and mutual friend of Sprouse and I, told me he passed away when I went back to visit New York a few years ago. It was a shock to me. I didn't know he was ill. He seemed fine the last time I talked to him.
He was a cool dude.
I was surfing the internet and look at what I found? HA!
Patrick McMullan, New York's premiere paparazzi, well I wouldn't call him that because he is more than that, he was the only photographer that Warhol had around at the time and McMullan has had various books and saying that he is well respected within the community is a true understatement. I am going to order some of these prints from him as soon as I can. I don't know if you can see but there I am with Stephen and I was so delighted when I found this! I am wearing a Giorgio Sant Angelo blazer with Luella Bartley Vans & Chanel bag. Oh 2003 seems like yesterday! (Why am I looking so grim in the photos? Must have been cold outside?! ha!)
Once in a while I put a blast from the past on here. Here is the interview and photo from 2002. It was about "IT" girls! I think Bay Garnett, Amanda Harlech, and a few other great names were involved.
2. I live in 'Money Make'n Manhattan', Tribeca to be exact.
3. Actress, Creative Consultant, Photographer, and Screenwriter.
4. Career Highlighs
Films that I have starred in are Ken Park and Teenage Caveman. Ken Park is going to the Venice Film Festival, Telluride, Toronto, Vancouver, and Deauville film Festivals 2002. So that should be fun! Being on the cover of the FACE. Being on the cover of TRACE with a 10 page story written on me. Current Centerfold for Cheapdate Magazine. I have been featured in Self-Service, Paper, Face, I-D, V Magazine and Interview Magazine.
5. Future projects - There are film offers but nothing solid at the moment. Writing a book at the moment, that won't be finished until 2004. Working with Larry Clark, Nick Knight, Craig McDean, Mario Sorrenti, and Showtime Cable on various projects. Oh yeah, I can't wait until I start production for the scripts that I have written. The process is long and stressful but it will be worth the while.
6. What is your style - I admire Janis Joplin, Anita Pallenberg, and Lou Lou de la Falaise's styles but who doesn't! I am not into any random/trendy look. I just have my look. My own style. I love the store Resurrection in NYC/LA. I mainly own vintage and thrift pieces. I also own many rare Giorgio Sant Angelo pieces and an Yves Saint Laurent suit. Many, many vintage Chanel, Giorgio Sant Angelo, & YSL scarves.
A best buy would be to find a bra that fit well, I can never find one that does!
7. What is your artistic ethos - what are you trying to put out there? Something realistic?
Positivity. Self-security. Reassurance. Who cares what people think or say, do what YOU want to do. If they criticize you, then, so WHAT!

Brian and I used to work at Visionaire and the inception of V Magazine in the late 90's. Brian has always had impeccable style and has always been well groomed. I think he came out of his mother's womb that way?! Well now he does the PR for Rodarte. (please tell me you know who they are and if you don't do your homework, okay.) The company is framenoir.com. And he does a great job of promoting them!
Claudia Wu, the owner of Me Magazine, another Visionaire alum, and my homegirl put Rodarte on the cover of one of her issues.
We had a party at the Sub Mercer to celebrate the issue Fashion week 2008. (winter) To say the least, usual suspects were there. Anyone and everyone who is in the inner circle of fashion.
YEAH, I love that Reese and Natalie wore Rodarte. I dislike how all those actresses in Hollywood just go for the safe route. I don't get alot of their choices but I guess they pay their stylists alot of money to handle their attire since they are too busy doing other things. (??acting??) (HA!!!!!!!!!) I really hate that manufactured look alot of those actresses have! They pose on the red carpet with the same face as the girl before and they all stand the same. Jesus. Then there are those who just make weird faces all of the time. Then there are the actresses that are trying to look sexy all of the time. Things have changed since I was a teenager. I used to turn on the tv and watch fashion shows and Style with Elsa Klensch and etc. But now the red carpet is the NEW catwalk! Turn on the tv now and its saturated with tabloid tv, reality tv, and yes... drum roll... red carpet madness from every channel on tv. (Well hip hop took a backseat when I was in my teens and now its at the forefront and I love that. I feel music is a little bit more even now.)
Damn that Slumdog! DAMNIT! Best Screenplay went to Simon Beaufoy.
I really liked last year's Cinderella story of Diablo Cody, I was on the edge of my seat for that one. This year it was Slumdog, SLAMDUNK! It just couldn't be Slumdog one right after the other! SLAMDUNK!!!! (Congrats to Danny Boyle, he is a great person and a great director, he deserved it!)
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAhhhhhh last but not least guys and you all knew this was coming.
Larry Clark texted me that if Mickey wins to light a candle.
I waited all night last night for the end of the show and I got all teary eyed as Robert Deniro wondered how Sean Penn got all those straight roles all these years. HA! I was really getting teary eyed because the night was finally coming to a close and I was just so proud of Mickey that I felt very emotional. I always believed in him and I always thought he was just so great. Not just as a friend but as an artist. This business can be tough and that is an understatement. And if you are in this business you know what kind of conniving sharks we deal with. If someone like Mickey Rourke can get chewed up and spat out, you better believe it can happen to anyone! People had berated me for even wanting to work with the guy! But I held steadfast to my beliefs! Even when Quentin Tarantino sent me the Death Proof script to read, which was written for Mickey Rourke initially and there was some falling out, even when he had beef with my dearest colleagues I was always in his corner.
When Michael Douglas said Sean Penn's name I clenched my chest and I know that sounds dramatic but I just felt like Sean deserved it and MILK is Gus's movie and he is family so of course Sean should win it... and MILK is the bomb. And Gus never fails to amaze me with his tenacity making films year after year...
I just wanted Mickey to win so bad so it would just be a huge FUCK YOU to all the haters that hated on him! AND because he worked so hard to come back and he didn't have to. He could have just went off and died but he didn't. All those people on tv who were making fun of him and etc., Do you know what its like to be an addict or to live with one? Mickey made it. Mickey got clean, he went through it man, and now he is back? How insane is that? And to be at the fucking Oscars of all places!!!!!! Alot of people felt like Mickey was walking the walk for them. That's why I was emotional and why other people were too. Hey, people were telling me at the premiere of The Wrestler in NYC in December that he might not be nominated for any awards.
Boy, were they wrong.
And I loved the fact that Mickey loved his little dog and wore a photo of his dog around his neck! HA! My sister said that she thinks that is something that I would do and it probably is. That's one thing Mickey and I have in common is our love for our small dogs. I know how he feels. That poor guy had nothing but his little dog for a long time. Later came the priest and the therapist I suppose.
I felt he also deserved to win the Oscar this year.
Just look at his body of work!
Well, I am still going to light a candle. Why? For gratitude. I am grateful to know someone like Mickey because his life has taught me alot. He didn't give up. Even after all of his mistakes. He just didn't give up. He was relentless and ruthless. Most of all he had faith. He had faith in the script. He had faith in the director Darren Aronofsky.
Despite what other people thought of him.
He had faith in himself.

NEW YORK - FEBRUARY 12: Artist Andre and musician Andre 3000 attend the Belvedere IX Launch Party at The Bowery Hotel on February 12, 2009 in New York City. (Photo by Michael Buckner/Getty Images for Moet Hennessy USA)
Don't these two Andre's just make you want to be apart of their club? HA! (as 3000 would say) These Andre's from two Alien planets couldn't be more polar opposite and more similar at the same time!!! God I love my life.
Andre Saraiva the king of nightlife from France to Tokyo. I had my 25th birthday at his club Le Baron in Paris. That was the party that everyone from Daft Punk, Chloe Sevigny, Agnes B., Gaspar Noe, Michel Gondry, Gael Garcia Bernal to Elton John attended. Google him if you don't know who he is.
Both have been tested in their fields and have come out on top. Andre Saraiva, a little more obscure but well respected within my circle of friends, top artists, top musicians, luxury brands, and top fashion magazines around the world. He has slowly but surely conquered nightlife in ways that only others can dream of. He knows his history with art, he isn't just one person who sees something and judges on the superficial, he knows the history behind every little movement he makes. I appreciate a man, an artist like that.
Andre 3000 = God is always smiling down on that man, I swear. He will always be successful. Andre Benjamin GQ article.
J'adore Andre Saraiva!
J'taime Andre Benjamin!
Look out for a collaboration with Tiffany Limos, Larry Clark, and Andre Saraiva in the near future.
ANDRE SARAIVA WILL BE AT CLUB SUITE IN DALLAS THE WEEK OF SXSW. HE WILL BE DOING AN INSTALLATION. UFFIE WILL ALSO BE PERFORMING. MORE DETAILS ON THIS LATER WHEN I GET INFORMATION FROM THE OWNER AND DALLAS AMBASSADOR, MATTHEW GIESE.

of course its...
Diablo Cody's 2 CENTS!
I guess for you all who do not have myspace, here is the cut and pasted version.

My Bologna Has a First Name, It's PTSD
A few people have asked me if I am going to the You-Know-Whats. (N00bs: that's how we refer to a certain awards show around here. Otherwise I get a tic. That whole brouhaha was amazing, but it also scared the crap out of Your Fragile Narrator.)
I won't be at the actual show-- they don't do the "returning winner" schtick with writers-- so no legendary presenter swag bag for DC. Quel horreur! I needed a mink oven mitt.
I might go to the big party on Sunday, though. You know I'm gonna crash a few group photos like "LOOK, KATE WINSLET AND I ARE FRIENDS! I'M RELEVANT! LOOK AT ME!" Or I'm in the background doing high kicks like Kathie Lee on a Carnival cruise. I actually have a hilarious picture of me and Shirley MacLaine where you can tell I just sort of mashed myself into the frame.
Last year, my friends and I discovered that if you're physically clutching an Osc_r, you (and all your dirtbag pals) can get into any party that night. So we were like, "Next year, let's bring it out again and see if it works." How tragically hilarious would that be? Ma'am, may I check the year on that statuette? 2008? I'm sorry this is expired. Suck a few dicks and come back next year.
I'm definitely watching the show, though. As an Academy member*, I'm not sure I'm allowed to say who I'm rooting for, but I certainly have my darlings. Too bad Katy Perry's not performing on this telecast. I can just see them lowering her onto the stage in a giant papier mache Cecil B. DeMille head.
*This phrase-- casually dropped with annoying frequency-- has become my personal version of "As a retired model..."
Well Hot DAMN... and NOW DO WHAT???? AS THEY WOULD SAY IN TEXAS!!!!!!!!
I am allowed to say who I am rooting for and its Mickey Rourke and Kate Winslet!
AND Slumdog Millionaire!
AND because I love Gus Van Sant, not just because he is family to me but because I just love him and his films, I am also rooting for MILK!
Below is a photo of Yacine in Algeria (2008). Photo by his grandmother.
I will talk about the third reason in another blog when I have more time and explain what the whole charity is all about and who will be involved.
(And the name of the charity will be unveiled when things are finalized!)

The greatest thing I did when I turned 29 was reflect on my whole life.
The mistakes, failures, good, bad, accomplishments, deaths, births, and how grateful I should be to still be alive to grow from it all.
I am so blessed.
Many people don't get the chance to see their 29th birthday. I am very grateful.
I have forgiven myself for the mistakes I have made and I pray that people will forgive me for the mistakes that I have made as well.
All you can do in life is accept what is happening right now and move on. Change and grow but most of all LEARN.
I remember moving to LA when I was 23 years old but I actually started living in Los Angeles when I was 21 in the year 2001. So many things have happened to me since then and all I did was sit and think about my life on my birthday. I let the film of my life play out in my mind. The good, the sad, the ugly, the horrific, the happy times, the sweet times, and etc.
Its unbelievable that I am still in one piece.
There were some times in my life that I wished never happened! But now I am a better person because of it. There were a few deaths that changed me forever and a few births that did the same thing. There were a few people that I didn't like that taught me the most important lessons that a friend could never teach me. I thought about someone that taught me alot of life lessons and it touched me.
Seeing things in hindsight was overwhelming.
Being in LA and going to the old haunts really put things in perspective.
I remember what it was like living there and things haven't changed.
Well the only thing that has changed is this new technology boom with myspace, youtube, facebook, and etc. These internet stars Tila Tequila, Cassie, Lily Allen, Cory Kennedy, Soulja Boy, and the fact that everyone can make a movie, be a critic, say anything they want to say... as Elliot Mintz once told me, "Darling, its the black hole of media. If you censor it, it might as well be television." Now you have to know who this Elliot Mintz is? He is a genius! Still with those words, he is still sharp!
I thought to myself, I wondered if my life would have been any different if I were 21 years old right now? What in the world would have happened to me? I don't know if I would have been able to cope with the book of the internet. I thought it was out of control back then but its worse now. I look at the Wikipedias of other peoples' and they list all their articles and interviews. None of mine are listed. Alot of my interviews and television spots aren't listed. I guess it was before the era of Technology. I know girls my age that just started to become popular in 2006 who seem to have more press coverage than myself but I have tons of magazine covers from Asia and Europe but none are listed. So its pretty interesting. Its almost like if you don't list your interviews and your magazine covers/press it doesn't count! And its like this race to see who can market themselves better on the internet? It's definitely new but not really new. Its a whole new game just from a few years ago! When I was 23 I don't remember this kind of thing happening? When I was 23, I lived in LA and I had a Publicist. I did all kinds of photoshoots for all kinds of magazines i-D, British Vogue, V Magazine, and I went to all of the shows front row. That was never shown on the internet. I remember doing a photoshoot with Paris Hilton when I was 22 years old before she was famous and that was never shown. Ha! And I remember being with her in LA for fashion week and it just being like whatever. Now-a-days, its serious. People just going for it, going out to get scene, calling Paparazzi like the world is going to end and pretending like they didn't call them and calling gossip columns giving tips when its really them calling in! MY MY MY.
Also, I think you have to be pretty avid to be keep up and sometimes I don't care. But DAMN, Diablo Cody was discovered on the internet! AND I LOVE HER! Perez Hilton and Necole Bitchie have made names for themselves and it seems like you don't have to do anything these days to be famous and you don't have to have a degree to be an internet critic.
I try to keep up but I am still honing my writing craft and I just gather with other writers sometimes. We are just a bunch of boring nerds. We don't do anything but talk about writing and talk about books. I laughed to myself and I thought how boring I've become. I am so glad that I am not 21, 22, 23 anymore because I've had too many experiences to last me 50 lifetimes!
I am ready to settle in and just be domesticated!
Bring it on!
ONE MORE TIME...
My birthday was a true surprise this year. What happened to me, I never would have expected in a million years. HA! (As Andre 3000 would say.) I wasn't happy I will tell you that much but that situation did open a new door. Which was going to happen to me whether I wanted it to or not! Isn't that how life is sometimes?! Yeah.
I celebrated my 23rd birthday by moving to Los Angeles from New York, getting an apartment in Santa Monica and having Larry Clark shoot me for the cover of Rebel Magazine. A prestigious out of print magazine from France.
My 24th birthday was celebrated in Los Angeles. I remember being at the Standard Downtown... and than being in New York having dinner with Michel Gondry and Paul Gondry.
For my 25th birthday I was in Paris working with Michel on The Science of Sleep and we partied at Le Baron. Drinks on Agnes B. and everyone was there! Chloe Sevigny, Daft Punk, Elodie Bouchez, Pedro Winter, Gael Garcia Bernal, Gaspar Noe, my friend Gael Foucher, Michel Bernstein, Christophe Lemaire from Lacoste and Olivier Assayas met me the next day to take me to dinner for my birthday. Larry Clark and Spike Lee called to wish me well. It was a merry ole TIME! I rented The Dreamers by Bertolucci since Michel was letting me pick out something to rent since it was my birthday and he freaked out when I put the dvd in.... "Is this the kind of stuff you watch?!" He says that during the clip where Michael Pitt has Eva Green's photo on his penis! ha ha ha!!!!!!!! Unfortunately, I know Michael Pitt and I was there for his first audition for Larry Clark and when he got cast for the movie Bully so I was soooo not into that part but I still crack up thinking of Michel's reaction! ha ha ha.
My 26th birthday was great! I owe that to Sarajane Wilde, Dave Morrison, and Michel Gondry... and Sean Lennon.
I don't know who paid for the drinks and dinner at the Chateau Marmont but it was nice!!!!!!!!
I saw Andre 3000 for a coffee before-hand, he was off to get a massage. Fonzworth Bentley came with his two friends. I met this guy who was the lead singer to Autolux and I forget his name but he came. I met him at Meg from the White Stripes bday party. He was their opening act. Liv Tyler came with Victoria Clay and Tatiana Von Furstenberg and her husband. My assistant Nick Kerkhoff was there. Sean played on the piano and sang Benny and Jets and Money Mark played along. Scarlett Johansson was there in pajamas with Josh Hartnett... and I saw a girl I met from Sophia Rossi named Katherine there. Sam Spiegel was there and Steve Aoki came by to say hello. We were supposed to go to Cinespace afterwards but we all decided to go to Teddy's instead. I don't remember what happened after that though. I also remember laughing at Sean and telling him he was the funniest guy I know and he was like.. what about Fonzworth!? He has a lime green sweater on?!!!! ha ha ha ha
It was sort of surreal because I have one friend that is from Texas that is still alive that I talk to and she wasn't there. And I only have one neighborhood friend who is still alive that I talk to. Believe it or not, the rest are dead or in jail. Its sad. Its cool to have all these people at my birthday but its kind of weird since I did not grow up with them. But I guess I can't be complaining about my life.
When I turned 27... back track here... alright... when I was a kid my favorite director from the Philippines was Cirio H. Santiago, than it would be a tie between Eddie Romero and Lino Brocka. I realized that Cirio H. Santiago was one of Quentin Tarantino's favorite directors too! Quentin and I happen to be bosom buddies... and I heard from someone in New York that Cirio was in Los Angeles. I tracked him down like a bandit! I called Quentin squealing like a pig..... on his answering machine and what does he do? Calls me back squealing!!!!!!!!!!!! We both couldn't believe that THE Cirio H. Santiago was in LA! I arranged a meeting with him on MY birthday! Cirio wanted to meet at Nate-n-Al's! He told me it was an old Hollywood meeting place. I was the first to arrive and I was shaking all the way there. Ahhh lord... I was the only young person in the room... and it was so easy to spot him! And then a few moments later Quentin comes in with (I forget) something for Cirio to sign. Awe... I will never forget that birthday. Quentin was about to do press for his movie Death Proof and it was great that we got to meet our idol Cirio H. Santiago! Oh yeah, QT and TL's fav. Santiago flicks are The Muthers, Death Force, and Ebony, Ivory, and Jade!
When I turned 28, I was with my bestfriend Claudia Wu at the Coffee Shop in NY. I was a hostess there when I was a teenager, when I stopped modeling. The next day we met up with Andre 3000 at The Grammercy Hotel in some private area to celebrate. Than later we were joined by Damon Dash, Irina, Margarita Missoni, and Erin Fethersen... (not sure if these names are spelled right... I will check later.) That was fun because Andre never ever goes out and to see him was like seeing a fictional character come to life!
The great age.
The last year I will be in my twenties!
I am going to live everyday like its my last.
I am going to just go for it. (So should you!)
I lost my wallet and you can't rent a car or stay at a nice hotel without a credit card! I had loads of cash on me but that didn't matter one bit. I didn't worry about it though but that sort of stressed me out. Mitchell Gutman and I had food and drinks at this Thai restaurant called Toi. I always wanted to go there because Quentin told me that he used to write in there for hours and I wanted to see what this place was all about. It lived up to its promise and I saw that the Pulp Fiction poster was strategically positioned next to a Godard poster of Anna Karina... I know why. Do you? I will post the photo I took of it on this blog later. Than I went to Hyde to meet up with Yacine. Than to the Chateau Marmont for the sake of it and old memories... and Yacine, Mitchell, Yorgan, and I had a really nice time. Yacine and Yorgan left. Mitchell and I went to some bar in Silverlake and it smelled like vomit! I don't know the name of the place. HA!
I put medicine on my face and it burned my skin! There were two burn marks on my face. And scar marks from when I was sick! That was not good. It should have been the Omen for the night. I got dressed in my vintage white embroidered mini dress and wore black wedges. I ate Thai food, went to Happy Endings (which I thought was like the New York version but its not, its more like a frat bar.), and than called it a night.
My life changed that night though for many reasons.
My last year of my twenties, nothing is going to get me down.
I love it!
I love life.
So that is what happened. I know I didn't write about my birthday but I have been traveling all over the world in a short span of time and I haven't been able to blog. Just dealing with alot of things too. Upset with alot of things too! But in the end, Happy.
So now. After the Grammys! I had to leave town. In LA they did have the Cirio H. Santiago Tribute at the New Beverly Cinema on the 10th! Man I was kicking myself for not attending that but Brian from the theater just emailed me and told me that they might have another one in a few months. Quentin and I will be attending that one for certain!
So what did you do for Valentine's Day?
I felt sleepy!
I had a great Valentines.
OH yeah! Me Magazine's newest issue is out now!
I will blog about that later.
Now I am tired of writing here.

I couldn't and I still can't wrap my head around the whole Rihanna / Chris Brown debacle. Shit happens and I wish people would just stop persecuting Chris, you never know what went on in his childhood. You just can't judge people, help them. He needs to get professional help. Be positive people. I hope they both heal from this situation.
* That whole situation got me thinking about alot of things.
Usher...alright his wife was having plastic surgery in Brazil??????????
My favorite picture from the Grammys thanks to my homegirl Necole Bitchie at Necolebitchie.com...... what up gurlll?!!!!
I adored this little outfit and M.I.A. dancing on stage! I felt proud to see her because I know how far she has come. What a beautiful surprise. Shout out to Diplo too! Congrats! How funny was it when M.I.A. came out and people were so shocked by her outfit that they weren't really looking at Lil'Wayne, Jay-Z, Kanye, and T.I. posing on those steps?!!!!! LMAO! She showed them up. That was funny.
Where was Beyonce?
But I agree with this little blog right here:
I think Usher, Beyonce, Chris Brown, and Rihanna could have saved the Grammy's this year. I think that this was the worst Grammys I have ever seen!
YA'LL WEIGH IN.................
I was jumping up and down for Lil'Wayne and screaming when he won.
(happy for Play-n-Skillz)
By the way, I am in the happiest mood!!!!!!!!!!!
It feels good to be me.
Be grateful everyone.

He emailed me a few days ago and complimented me.
I've been speechless ever since.
This is my favorite movie that he has made.
Its called LE CLAN.
For Kanye its 3 weeks.
For Beyonce its 2 weeks.
For Nikki Reed its 6 days.
Stephen King talks about various authors taking from 2 days to ten years to finish a novel.
For me, I have too many projects piled up. I need to have just one or two and complete them fully one at a time. If I can't do the project justice and do my best work, than I should turn it down. One of my terrible habits is not being able to say no but this year will be different and it will be apparent. I have seen how much I have grown over the years. Thank goodness. I don't want to talk too much about this subject of projects. You will just have to wait and see.
Do the Work...
And as my friend Claudia says, "Baby steps."
My friend Aleta. She just reminded me that everything happens for a reason. To not force anything and that everything has to be on the same wave length.
I had a situation recently that made me think twice about my interactions with people. But I learned alot thinking about it. I learned to be more considerate (of this person's feelings) and I also learned to be more generous (with time apart and my precious time). This past situation also reminded me of a situation in 2005 that I went through. And in that situation things weren't going my way and I tried to force them to go my way and things just weren't working out. And when I resisted it I got slammed in the face pretty hard. I don't know why I hadn't understood this before but even when you fail and when things don't go your way you may not realize all of the valuable lessons that were in that situation. So with this situation I am in now, I realize that its a blessing and I accept it. There is obviously something better for me down the road. I am excited to see what that will be all about.
I am grateful for everyone that I have come across in my life. Good or bad.
I won't resist anymore.
Alright I am tired, my speech is slurred.
These paragraphs below were from a spiritual site, I don't know who but I found it interesting, maybe you will too?:
Every time we focus on something we are calling it towards us. With our thoughts and beliefs, we invite people, situations and material things into our life. Often we can use our energy in resistance. Many invoke this law without being aware of doing it.
Your conscious mind can discriminate between a negative and a positive instruction but your unconscious mind cannot tell the difference. The following words invokes this law: don't, can't, wont or not. You become what you resist.
Whatever you resist persists in your life and uses up your energy in struggle. Never resist failure or poverty. Instead attract success and wealth. Always embrace the positive rather than resist the negative. Releasing control frees energy.
One positive way of transforming negative thoughts is to write them down and then burn the piece of paper.
Then write down what you do want so as to attract that into your life instead. If you are in conflict you stay stuck.
If someone is blaming another for what is happening in his own life, he is a victim who is resisting taking responsibility for what he has created. Anything that you are resisting has a message for you. If you have recurring patterns of failure constantly picture yourself succeeding. Quit resisting. Decide what you do want in life and start to send out magnetic, excited, Enthusiastic energies to draw the positive to you. What you resist persists in your life and drains you of energy. Embrace what you do want and feel alive.
Law of Attraction
You have drawn towards you everything and everyone who is in your life. You send out into the ether the story of your patterns, emotional energy, mindsets, and denials, likes and dislikes. People who do not resonate on our frequency simple are not attracted to us. The vibration you emit is made up of your conscious and unconscious energy, some magnetic, some repellent and some neutral. Like attracts like Qualities such as love, kindness, delight or generosity transmit a high frequency and magnetize people with similar energy. The universe provides mirrors for us to look into. Our underlying beliefs attract people and situations to us. If you think negative thoughts you attract negative people and situations to you. Whenever something is not materializing, as you would like it, examine your underlying feelings and change them. The inner attracts the outer. If something in your outer world is not what you want it to be, look inside and shift how you feel about Yourself. You will automatically attract different people and experiences to you. Remind yourself of your good qualities. Send out positive light and wait for a miracle to be drawn towards you. You are a magnet: you attract like to you.
The Law of Request
Under spiritual law, if you want help, you must ask for it. It is better to help another only when they ask you for help.
If you feel you want to help someone else without their permission then you need to look at the part within yourself that feels the need to rescue them. A being of Light never interferes with your life. But they will save you from an accident or death if it is not your karma. They will also see you make mistakes so you can learn and grow. There are times when you may wish to ask for help. This is done calmly and with strength. As soon as you are ready to ask for help you are ready to receive it.
You are ready to accept the wisdom that goes with it. Then the higher powers will align themselves to help you.
The person who is steadfastly walking the spiritual path goes within to look for answers. As soon as you are ready to know something the teacher will appear to provide it. When you are ready to formulate the question, you are ready to receive the answer. When you need help first quiet and centre yourself. Meditate on what you really want and find clarity about it.
Then request help to your spiritual helpers. The answer lies in the question. The more clarity you have in your question, the fuller the help you will receive. They will always help you. The universe is waiting to help you. All you have to do is ask.
As Within so Without
Earth is a place of learning where our lessons are presented to us by making our outside world an exact reflection of our inner world. If you feel secure, loved, safe and happy inside you will have secure, safe and happy people in your life. If you feel angry, self-critical or feel rejected deep inside, you will have people who get angry at you, or put you down or who abandon you. The universe rearranges itself to reflect your reality. Literally as within so without.
Your body is a mirror of your deep, often unconscious, inner feelings. The left side of our body reflects our attitude to women and the past. The right side reflects our attitude to men and the future. The words we choose to use also reflect the condition of our bodies. So if you have a 'pain in the neck', who is being a 'pain in the neck' in your life. If you say or think it enough times, you will get a 'pain in the neck'. The kind of car we own is a deep inner reflection of who we are. Like wise, our home and our pets reflect our inner qualities. The higher beings who watch over us cause the material objects in our life to alter according to our inner state. So if we want to change something in our lives then we need to alter our beliefs and attitudes in order for our outer world to change. The universe rearranges itself to bring you what you believe.
As Above so Below
This is the first Law of the Universe. On Earth as it is in heaven. The Universe loves you and holds a vision of your future as an enlightened person no matter what mistakes you are making on Earth. God does not judge you, only encourages. You have free will to make your own choices in life. God will not force you to do his will. he Universe waits without judgment as we experience and learn. When we are ready it opens new doors. God wants us to be happy, fulfilled, prosperous and healthy.

Tonight Andre Saraiva and Justice are doing a show in Los Angeles for Belvedere. I am sure that will be fun.
I have some rewrites to do so I will be working on that.
I am excited to see what the outcome of this year's Grammy's are!?!?!?! I finally feel like my generation is up for alot of the awards this year! I am putting all my money on Lil'Wayne of course. I also have to say I loved Kanye West's song Heartless. I hope that song wins something. You just know Los Angeles is going to be raging with parties. Its only fun when you have invites and friends there. Otherwise, you aren't missing much.

Location: please drop off the $ at Natori Resturant
My friend Yuko Sueta (who you may known as Natori resturant waitress) is suffering from Stage IV breast cancer right now.
She has been fighting this disease for 4 years.
Unfortunately she has no family support and has been supporting herself. Luckily, she has few sincere friends who has been also helping her with living expenses. However, now that her condition has deteriorated and she can no longer work at Natori, making it difficult to even cover her living expenses.
Currently she is receiving treatment from NYC hospital but her condition hasn't improved.
Her hope is to go to a clinic in Mexico where she will try an alternative treatment.
I am trying to collect $23,000 for this Mexican clinic for Yuko.
Please kindly donate if you can. THANK YOU very much!
If you could drop off or mail out the check, money order or cash (any money will help) at Natori Resturant, that
would be wonderful.
please payable to: YUKO SUETA
