"She [Blue] does like her mother’s music—she watches [Beyoncé’s concerts] on the computer every night. But my album came out and I don’t know if Blue ever heard any of my music prior to this album—she’s only 18 months old and I don’t play my music around the house. But this album was new, so we played it. And she loves all the songs. She plays a song and she goes, ‘More, Daddy, more … Daddy song.’ She’s my biggest fan. If no one bought the “Magna Carta”, the fact that she loves it so much, it gives me the greatest joy. And that’s not like a cliché. I’m really serious. Just to see her—‘Daddy song, more, Daddy.’ She’s genuine, she’s honest, because she doesn’t know it makes me happy. She just wants to hear it."

this is how cool, calm, and collected I really am on a roller coaster 😎 #VAstatefair #ionlydontriderollercoastersbecausewhowillwatchthebagsandprizes #Teeniel
I never really liked hearing this whenever someone would say this. With a new school year just about to start up tomorrow, it’s been prevalent.
I understand the notion and what people are trying to explain: clean slate, starting fresh, etc.
Yeah that sounds good and dandy, but why does it have to be a whole “new” you? The way I look at a new year is a - same me, but with improvements.
I”m going to be the same happy, loud, fun, sometimes funny (actually all the time) guy that people know me by. I’m going to that same being.. except I’m going to adapt to what I have learned this past year. I’m going to improve from the natural life lessons that living an extra year has given to me. For example, I (hopefully) will be eating healthier, become more organized for school, review for classes more often, etc.
I don’t necessarily want to just become a whole new person and be a totally “new me”.
I’d just rather be something like, “DANIEL 2.0”.. or how many other school years I’ve had in my life :).
Cheers to a great junior year!

I’ve been working on promotional Explosive Performance videos and had a lot of left over film. I wanted to play around with video editing again and decided to do a motivational-type of video to hopefully encourage others to do whatever they’re trying to change in their lives and do it. Like I said though I’m still messing around and learning this stuff but I hope you guys enjoy!!
Prayers to all of the people in that town. This is bullshit anyone is treated like this. It is fucking 2014 get ur shit together.
