Sergeant Buzzkill Reporting For Duty

So I’m extremely confident that I just stumbled upon one of the worst videos to ever be posted on social media… Watching it easily ranks in the top 5 most terrible experiences to happen in my life, amongst getting lost at Six Flags and having the cops called on me after I went through my neighbor’s garage to get my basketball that flew into their backyard.

I know it’s a bold accusation but I wholeheartedly believe it’s warranted. After finally getting through the whole video (because it took me a couple of tries to get myself to finish (that’s what she said)) I sat on my bed in disbelief, absolutely shook at what I had just witnessed.

“How could the internet betray me like this?” I muttered.

I was just casually scrolling through the Gram and I came across one of those blurred videos that said: “Sensitive Content”… I was thinking it could’ve been someone snapping their leg snowboarding, maybe a shark biting someone’s finger off, a penis… Idk, I would’ve taken any of those options if I knew what I was instead clicking on.

I wouldn’t have posted it if I didn’t want you to see for yourself but just know that it changes you as a person. (I recommend sound off)

 

Viewer Discretion Is Definitely Advised

I’m always a praying and forgiving person and in this instance all I can do is pray for these people and have faith that one day we can all coexist but damn man This one hurt man 😢😖🥺 I can’t believe what i just watched ! I’m so sick of seeing these videos and people just getting a slap on the wrist ,bullshit fines ,and minimal sentencing! The laws need to change on the way animals are treated not just in America but around the world 🌎 I was on the fence of posting this video but I wouldn’t be who I am if I didn’t spread the message weather it’s good or bad ! I VOWED TO BE THE VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS….shut up for one second and listen to our friends “mans best friend” in this video! And let me know what you think below …. Sorry for the graphic nature 🤬 please share to help end the way animals are treated ! @karmagawa #dogs #dog #news #nbc #cnn #trump #kimkardashian #arianagrande #pitbull #animal

If you aren’t extremely mad/sad/terrified/scarred/sobbing/etc, after seeing a portion of this video you might be clinically heartless. I hope I wasn’t underselling it prior but if you think I was, I’m not sorry that I have feelings and love dogs. Sue me.

I partially blame myself for not checking to see who posted the video before but this guy usually posts the most entertaining animal videos, like he’ll be swimming with tigers and chillin’ with monkeys and shit! Sure in the past he may have posted a similar “Sensitive Content” video of people poaching rhinos, but THEY WEREN’T THROWING DOGS IN A BOILING POT OF WATER OR LIGHTING THEM ON FIRE.

What purpose did that serve to post that, what mission was accomplished?! “I VOWED TO BE THE VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS!” What are we going to do, go to Asia and start a revolution? Sure, let’s caravan together and go stop a country of people from eating what they have been for the last probably ever. Maybe someone will start a GoFundMe page, or send over a boatload of chickens with a guy in a dog costume holding a Chick-fil-A “Eat Mor Chikin” sign. Idk, it’s just a thought – we’ll see what happens.

It’s like those people who would stand off Perryville near the mall with all those pictures of unborn babies in protest against abortions, exposing the ugly truths of fucked up situations isn’t going to do anything but kill whatever buzz someone has going for them.

I do apologize for probably ruining your night but I needed to release all of these emotions, and I exceeded my max characters for a tweet.

10/07/2018

Well, here we are. One month removed from Mac Miller’s existence.

The news of his death came out of right field and had social media, and even the day-to-day media, in a frenzy. I was informed by a 7 minute old TMZ post on Instagram stating Mac Miller was found dead and immediately sent it to my buddy Kevin wondering what kind of sick joke was happening.

Everyone was pretty shook about his passing. Several artists sent their condolences, including Chance who made several Tweets, Logic shared mad praises on YSIV, Karl Anthony Towns had some custom sneaks made to commemorate him, and I’ve seen a decent amount of Pennsylvania sports team pay their respects.

And Pitt with the dopest hype video I’ve ever laid eyes on

I still can’t believe this whole thing happened, there was a fluke in the universe or God had a hiccup because Malcom McCormick was not supposed to die. He was engulfed in positive energy and was stoked for the start of The Swimming Tour, title of the album he released in early August.

Tweeted a day before his death, a freaking day… Fuck, could’ve been a couple hours if they found him in the morning. Shit’s insane.

Mac is hands down my favorite rap artist but I never saw him live because I’m not much of a concert goer. If you add a couple of Summerfest visits, an REO Speedwagon/Styx concert when I was 12, and a lonesome T.I./Ludacris concert my freshman year of high school, you’ll find that my concert going experience is “pathetic.” I couldn’t agree more now let me live my life. I think I played a burned CD of KIDS in my car for 9 months straight, I love(d) that mixtape and I love(d) all the music he released during his time on Earth.

{Insert a sweet article about Mac and the direction he was on}

For the last month, there hasn’t been a day that I haven’t listened to his music. The phrase you don’t know what you have until it’s gone hasn’t been more true. Knowing that I won’t be able to listen to a new Mac Miller song makes me real life sad. I usually listen to music for the rhythm and beat of the song, as opposed to listening to the lyrics. I’ve listened to nothing but his lyrics and some of them make me think hard about how precious life is.

“Get ya money, fuck ’em all. Everything could be gone tomorrow. What if it’s gone tomorrow?”

“Now I’m in the clouds, come down when I run out of jet fuel, but I never run out of jet fuel.”

“Takin’ over piece by piece, startin’ from the core. It’s only been a year I can stick around a hundred more.”

Perfect Circle / God SpeedGO:OD AM

“Everybody saying I need rehab cause I’m speedin’ with a blindfold on and won’t be long until they watching me crash and they don’t wanna see that. They don’t want me to OD and have to talk to my mother. Tell her they could have done more to help me and she’d be crying that she’d do anything to have me back.”

One of the hardest deaths I’ve endured thus far and I never even met the guy, life is gonna be real fun when someone I’m close with passes. Mac, from the looks of it, you were a positive influence on everyone you met and you’re going to be truly missed and remembered. Rest easy, friend.

Smokes of The Office

The Office.

Everyone loves it.

Easily one of the top 5 comedy shows out there and rightfully so. I’m on my second run through of indulging and I have some friends that are easily on their 5th of 6th lap of rewatching this magnificent series. Trying to decipher which scenes were scripted and which were completely impromptu gives me all of the entertainment I need. Also, going back and watching the other actors try to keep a serious face is priceless. It’s just like Vegas, no matter how many times you go back, there’s always something new to look at.

There’s a lot of talent in this cast, and I’m not referring to ability to act. Well, maybe, everyone does a fantastic job and the show wouldn’t be what it is without the presence of every single one of them <3

but really, lot of beauts in this show and you’ll get a different answer from everyone you ask but try this sequence of most attractive characters on for size:

5. Erin Hannon

Sweet and genuine soul, with a pretty face – and that is all she wrote on this one… Her squeaky voice, super teethy smile, and past relations with Gabe are definite deal breakers. Not good Erin, minus 5.

4. Angela Martin

Not my most popular opinion but Angela’s got it going on, starting at like season 3. It could be my overlap of her character in New Girl but Dwight flipped a switch on this fox.

3. Jan Levinson

Jan freaking Levinson-Gould, you majestic goddess! The only reason you are not my number 1 is because of, in your exact words, your ability to be self destructive. We’d never make it.

.

.

.

But on the real, she could handcuff me.

2. Karen Filippelli

Karen, you’re a babe and you’ve already conquered my heart as Ann Perkins. Give someone else a chance, please.

1. Pam Beesly

LOOK AT HOW BEAUTIFUL SHE IS! Seriously, if Pam falls anywhere but number one on your list you need to seek medical attention for blindness. All around wifey material and is everything I could want in a woman. You can take this as my written proposal, I’ll be waiting patiently for your answer.

If my girl purse lady Katy stayed in the show a little longer and wasn’t just a treat for Jim to snack on, I can confidently say that she’d be in my top 5 (sorry not sorry, Erin).

As for the more frequent appearances, who knows what Meredith looked like in her younger days, I wouldn’t count her out completely. Kelly, Phyllis, Holly, and Nellie… Not a chance.

You All Over The Place Quez Baby

There’s nothing cooler to me than seeing someone who is out in the world doing something they’re passionate about. Whether it’s some lucky SOB who gets to play their favorite sport, musicians, or even someone who genuinely likes their full time job.

One of my friends landed a job at Honda Kawasaki working with motorcycle and dirt bike operations – not much of a motorcycle fanatic but this guy fucking loves motocross. He watched Disney’s OG, Motocrossed one time and was sold instantly; now I couldn’t be more ecstatic that he’s telling me he wakes up happy to go to work.

Nurses and teachers seem to love their jobs too. It has to be a rewarding feeling taking care of society’s medical needs, and molding the minds of youths. Getting summer vacation as an adult has to be a major selling point for teaching.

I’d say the hardest thing for me to adjust to, ya know being an adult and all, is not having a summer vacation. My sister got done last week and I’m thinking, “Great, you get three months of carefree-ness ahead of you while I’m sitting in an office when it’s 83 and there’s not a cloud in the sky.” We’ll eventually end up having the same amount of summer vacations so I can’t complain too much. What I’m getting at is

Scrolling through Instagram is always fun because people post shit about EVERYTHING. I dig pictures of puppies, new born babies are adorable, and seeing engagements are heart warming, but selfies and progress pictures are the absolute worst. Yeah, you’ve achieved summer 2K18 body status but it better not come with a mile long caption of how hard it is to stay motivated but hard work and perseverance will prevail. Duh, it’s exercising nobody wants to do it. You’re putting in work to stop your body from doing what it’s genetically designed to do.

One Instagram account I thoroughly enjoy seeing is my buddy from high school, Marquez {Quez} Beeks. Our lockers were hella close to each other all four years and I remember seeing him and then hearing him yell “YOU BETTER GET TO HOMEROOM MR BLAHUNKA!” Oh the good ol’ days, how we used to laugh.

Quez has been all over the map since graduation, six years ago. Not literally traveling the map but movin’ and groovin’ to his own beat. He started off playing some JUCO football at College of Dupage and then a couple more years at Fayetteville State. During his time away in North Carolina, he came up with a non-profit organization to help give back. Now, I recently saw a post that I should go listen to his newly released hit single on Spotify.

I slid in his DM’s and asked if I could hear his story on where he started and how he got to where he’s at now. I think it’s important for kids in high school, nearing the college mark of life, to be cognizant that the path they have paved is subject to change and life doesn’t follow the same agenda.

After graduation, he was all aboard the college athlete train. Started out in JUCO and worked his way up to playing D2 ball. Super athletic guy, he posted his speed and agility videos on Facebook that got me amped. I was ready to watch him catch a ball on the tail end of a back flip. With the help of his agent, Quez found himself in conversation with scouts from the Chicago Bears and Washington Redskins around the time of the draft.

“At the end of the day, it didn’t pan out but the whole process of being able to talk with NFL scouts was pretty dope.”

During his last semester of school, he came up with the idea for his non-profit organization, Touching Soles. His efforts started in his hometown of Rockford, at West Middle School, scattered throughout Illinois, and even in Miami for a minute. He attended a career day and gave away seven pairs of shoes and a couple of pairs at a local community center.

“I’ve always wanted to give back. That was one thing that I knew, whatever I did in life, I wanted to give back.”

Quez holds this as one of his highest priorities and has ambitions of starting a scholarship for students within the next five years. As for now, shoes ain’t cheap and all of them are coming out of his pocket so check out his site and donate to the betterment of mankind.

A couple weeks ago, I saw a post from Quez saying that he released his first single, Rock Out, and I can listen to it now on SoundCloud and Spotify… Damn, on Spotify? That’s legit – I use that shit everyday. Gave the song a gander and it was an instant vibe.

“I got the beat from a guy in London and I was sitting there listening to it and the lyrics just came to me. The whole thing with Rock Out is I just want to have a good time. I’ve got my crew behind me and we’re gonna rock out, that’s the vision. Team no sleep.”

Music video coming soon:

One of his big time motivators is, long time amigo, Fred VanVleet. They started playing basketball against each other around 5-6 years old and really began a friendship during their time at West Middle School. Growing up with someone and watching their dreams become a reality has to be a surreal feeling. Going from watching Lebron and Kobe games at 12 years old, to watching your homie square up with Lebron’s bitch ass is wild. #GoCeltics

Luke: “So you talk to Fred often?”
Quez: “Shit, I talk to him everyday. He’s on his way here now.”
Luke: “Seriously? Cool.”

Quez, it was truly a pleasure chatting with you and hearing your incredibly interesting story. You’re a role model to all and don’t stop grinding until you’re where you want to be. It’s a good story to hear because as much as you want to be able to plan every aspect of your life out, ya just can’t. Not 100% accurately, at least. Don’t let anyone stop you from pursuing what you want, follow your gut, and don’t be afraid to make a couple changes along the way.

You Had To Go With That One?

I would consider myself a pretty decent driver… I make complete stops at stop signs, always use my blinker, and I only Tweet when I’ve got a real good one cookin’ and I don’t want to forget. I’ve gotten a couple of warnings and I’ve been in one (not my fault) accident. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned about the ways of the road it’s that there’s a special place in hell for people who drive the same cars used for police vehicles.

Actually, this is a circumstantial statement… If you’re given a Crown Victorian or Chevy Impala for your first car, or it’s all you could afford, I respect the grind ✊🏼 . But if you wake up in the morning, brush your teeth, eat breakfast, take a half day of work to go to a dealership with the intent of purchasing a white Ford Explorer, get the fuck out of town. What kind of psychopath are you?

What joy does one get by fooling others into thinking you can pull them over at any second? A real sick individual, I’ll tell you what! Numerous times a car that looks like a law enforcer has pulled up behind me, but it always turns out to be a woman talking on her phone, or a middle aged man in a wife beater smoking a cigarette.

There has to be a billion different kinds of cars you can pick. If you subtract the % of cars for the people who drive on the opposite side of the road and smart cars, that still leaves a shit ton of cars you can choose from. There is nothing you can gain from having that specific kind of car, except to look like a wannabe cop and strike the fear of God into civilian drivers.

It’s safe to say that nobody likes driving when there are cops around. I appreciate the hell out of their services and for protecting us, but they scare the piss out of me on the road. I could be driving under the speed limit, behind a semi, as a school bus driver, and I would still slam on my breaks if I saw a cop sitting on the side of the road. It’s wild that red, white, and blue are the colors of freedom, unless they’re flashing in your rear view mirror.
