Random Photos – NYC

Sorry I missed putting up random photos last night.  Our new couch gets to be very comfortable, especially after long days.  Anyway, I give you 3 shots, again from 2009, maybe 2010, but most likely 2009.  These were shot with my then brand new Nikon D700 with a 24mm F/2.8 Nikkor D lens.

Funny, when I say ‘then brand new Nikon D700’.  I can’t believe it’s been 9 years since I adopted into the Nikon system.  That’s another story for another post.  For now, please enjoy these shots.

 

Please leave us some feedback below, like our FB page, or just like this post.  It would be better too if you can follow us, so you won’t miss out on stuff you really can miss out on…lol.  But seriously, we’d like to know your thoughts, good or bad

Magna Carta Holy Shit.

No, I’m not calling Jay-Z’s newest album shit. In fact, it’s quite the opposite.

I have never been so hyped about a new hip-hop/rap album. Kanye’s recent Yeezus got me excited, but I’m calling it right now, Magna Carta Holy Grail will be rap album of the year. J Cole’s Born Sinner is of the same caliber, with great music as well, but MCHG… Damn.

Seen all those Samsung commercials promoting it? Heard the background music? Those teasers do not do this album justice. Of course, you get a glimpse of the production process. But once you hear the album, you’ll be blown away. I know I was.

Here’s the tracklisting for you.

  1. Holy Grail (feat. Justin Timberlake)
  2. Picasso Baby
  3. Tom Ford
  4. F*ckwithmeyouknowigotit (feat. Rick Ross)
  5. Oceans (feat. Frank Ocean)
  6. F.U.T.W.
  7. Somewhereinamerica
  8. Crown
  9. Heaven
  10. Versus
  11. Part II (On The Run) (Feat. Beyonce)
  12. Beach Is Better
  13. BBC
  14. Jay Z Blue
  15. La Familia
  16. Nickels and Dimes

Here’s my advice. Don’t hesitate to download this album. This is going to go down in history as one of the best rap albums of all time. Jay never disappoints.

 

I dislike schoolwork, but I’m looking at schools.

I apologize to any of you and all of you who are readers of my posts, specifically. Due to my load of schoolwork from AP classes, I have not had a chance to fulfill my duties as a contributing co-editor. I’ve been keeping updated with the blog, but need to make some edits on grammatical/spelling errors, not like anyone cares. I love you all.

Anyway, the point of this post was to inform people of the colleges I wish to attend and to pose a question, which will be asked at the end of the post and to be answered by you, the readers, in the comment section below.

I’m really looking towards two schools, both in the New York City area.
— School of Visual Arts (SVA),  Manhattan
— Pratt Institute, Brooklyn (with locations in Manhattan and Utica)

another college I may consider is the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). I might consider FIT, but that’s a very slim possibility.

The question(s) I wish to ask is(are)… Should I be following my dreams to become a graphic designer?
