    • Speaker for the Dead(9/11 tribute)

      6 years ago

      yograndaddy

      As few may know, due to my very unnoticed absence in this journal, I am very engulfed in the production of music and using that as an outlet for my feelings/stories instead of writing. I do know that I should still continue to write, because in the end that will be something I know I can always do well and that I know I can express myself the best, as I am the most comfortable with the idea of symbols being put together to make up semi-constructs of ideas and obscure, yet specific meanings, invoking emotions and relatable thoughts within the readers, if there be any. But for now I am trying to grasp the tools and skills I have learned, and am currently learning about the production of music, to express myself properly through it, as I know that a different level of emotion can be discovered or sparked within a person when they listen to music, though it be rare. I digress though, let me get back on track. Today, is a day, but 11 years ago it was an end to what we used to know here in America. Human nature demands that we remember the things we wish to forget the most, so to cope, we demonstrate feelings and love for people we may not have known personally, but known through the connection of heartbreak and death. We mask these actions with a simple word, "tribute". A few years ago, I had written a poem titled "Somber Heavens" in tribute for that country decimating day and the effects it's had on us. Today I produced a song in tribute, titled "Speaker for the Dead". Tribute, it's a traditional/cultural contribution towards something that has happened in the past. Tribute, more frequently a reminder of our most damaged times as human beings.

    • These Nights

      I feel the beat in her chest, unless, it's mine. If so, it's time, I go, we cry. Later we smile, we tear, we're alive. We can't get enough, of these, good times. I guess you could say we're exuberaphiles. I know that's not a word but who am I, to say what's not and what is. I look at the clock, my drink, its fizz. I say the word, love and we kiss. I never forget these nights.

    • Fear

      9 years ago

      yograndaddy

      My heart pounds with the beat of the drum that Death beats all to well. My brainstorms rage, not with thoughts and idea, but with pain and emotional swell. I do not fear my end but I fear what my end will do to others. I fear my end will deprive my brothers, my sisters, my fathers, my mothers. I fear it will deprive my friends and all I meet of the love I have for them. My only wish is that I be the last to die so everyone I’ve loved will be loved to death. If this wish is not fulfilled I will die with the content that love has been spoken and taught through my last breath. To know my fate about my state of mind eases all morbid thoughts of the end, but I worry that others do not know their fate as well. If we all knew our fate then all would be simple and chill. My heart pounds to the beat of the drum that Death beats all to well and I dance with Death with no fear but one. One is that others not know how to dance with me and Mr. Inevitable. My brainstorms rage, not with thoughts and idea, but with pain and emotional swell that will only calm when the moon becomes new with realization and acceptance. I do not fear my end, but what others will do with my end.

    • So....I miss Roosterteeth

      Sorry RT...I haven't even visited the site in over 2 months...I have excuses though! I'll list them and you can tell me whether or not they're good excuses or not. Ok, first excuse is I've been pretty occupied by end of the year finals and beginning of break. It's taken a huge chunk out of my time and I just really haven't been able to do much of anything. My second excuse is youtube. I've been trying to be a little more active in youtube now that I have an account and a decent amount of subscribers(though i'd love more). My third excuse is my friends. I've just been..trying to stray away from the internet world and hang with my IRL friends..ya know..cuz i guess it's healthy or something...idk...but in short those are reasons i've been gone...I miss you roosterteeth..i haven't even been watching your videos..i used to be ahead of the game(I just lost the game) now i'm just...way behind..i feel so bad. I honestly will be trying to catch up and spend some more time with you ok? alright, love you RT :)

    • Naka-Kon 2010 and Braces

      9 years ago

      yograndaddy

      So yeah I already talked alot about Naka-Kon but not alot about my braces. So basically my teeth were to close together and pushing some teeth outward and stuff so i had to get braces. I'm going to have to get a total of 6(maybe 8 if my other two wisdom teeth grow in) extractions before my braces come off. I'm getting all four of my pre molars removed and two(maybe 4) wisdom teeth pulled cause my wisdom teeth are growing in sideways :/. So because of the timing of these extractions and the timing of the start of track I won't be able to be in track this year because I won't be able to go to practice for a whole month...which sucks but my dad's training me for next year so i'll even be more beast by then :).

    • So much school so little life

      9 years ago

      yograndaddy

      So lately I've been kinda flooded with schoolwork which kinda sucks. My grades have been dropping which keep me from getting to do certain things like hang out with my friends or participate in a pep band. But luckily for me school itself has been quite interesting. We had spirit week a couple weeks ago and man did people have some spirit lol. Also there was a diversity assembly focused mainly on black people because of BHM. There was poetry, a step team, a marching band, and a thriller dance. It was all really fun. Hmm....let's see....oh yeah! I'm getting braces in a week and a half and I MIGHT get two extractions. I'll make sure to record it for your viewing pleasure. You'll find it here. Well I'll see you guys later, I've got a doctors appointment to go to. Peace.

    • Bleeding Effect

      9 years ago

      yograndaddy

      Hey guys sorry haven't been posting on here alot. It's just that i recently got off break, attended one day of school, and then went into a "five day weekend" thanks to the snow. I recently got a Flip UltraHD camera so i decided to start a vlog. I hope to make the topics somewhat similar to anything i post on here...or maybe give you guys a little extra for being readers :). I just hope it kicks off well. Go check it out here. On other news, I recently beat Assassin's Creed II(got it for Christmas along with L4D2 and COD6) and not too long after i beat it i subconsciously started taking everyday things like walking around like a normal person and changed it to wear i was skipping steps, light jogging all the time, and even free running around the house. I soon realized it and stopped myself of course...but I freaked out thinking that this so called "Bleeding Effect" is true...It'd be pretty cool though and make doing certain things alot easier, but i don't wanna go crazy after a while. I wanna stay as sane as i believe i am right now. I just can't wait for ACIII now, but while i have to wait i'll be playing COD6 alot so if you wanna play just let me know :). That's all for today, i'll try and post either later today or tomorrow after school alright. Peace!

      Oh and Happy New Year! 2K10!

    • Home, Sudoku, Party

      9 years ago

      yograndaddy

      Ok, we got home last night at about 11:45pm(central) and yet I didn't go to "sleep" till 4:30am. I woke up at like 8:15am and had no clue where I was and freaked out cause I couldn't feel my limbs. I finished my break homework today and did the programming extra credit. It was 2 medium sudoku puzzles front and back. It's officially my new obsession. I love brain teasers like sudoku and logic puzzles. After I finished the worksheet I started texting Pat(carnaf) and Claudia(tuckerbcbw) about a party we planned over Facebook a week ago. So far most votes for a movie are for couple's retreat. Well I'll update everyone about the party tomorrow. Peace.

      P.S. This was my second ZuneHD post...did much better than last time in my opinion.

    • Zune Type, Zune Pass, Funeral

      yograndaddy

      This is my first ZuneHD post on roosterteeth.....it feels weird. Well my Zune Pass expired last weekend and my Zune is just now realizing it. Just two days ago it started asking me if I wanted to "refresh my information" or delete my songs. What I'm gonna do is download every song I got on the Zune Pass then delete the other ones.....see my strategy? Yup. Oh, today was the first and last time I met my cousin Roderick Wynn. I learned so much today and will never take the present for granted.

      looks like youtube doesn't have the balls
      to take down knightwing01 also known as kwing my favorite video game reviewer
      because his primary account is still not closed
      i guess youtube is scared because the fans might go after them
      and spam the shit out of them and reinstate the account if closed

    • RvBVic

      10 years ago

      its not youtube its the youtube partners like ign
      and other game people like that because
      they know that his reviews are like a thousand times better
      because he knows how to correctly look at game
      and doesn't rant and rave and bitch about it
      unless the game puts him in really bad mood
      any way he is still on youtube his account is still up
      and so is his back up account

    • RvBVic

      10 years ago

      he made back up account so im not really worried

    • RvBVic

      10 years ago

      my favorite video game reviewer kwing
      is going balls to the wall with youtube
      reason why i said this is because youtube partners said
      if he post one more review he is suspended
      but he is currently on sugar rush from cupcakes
      so now he is going all out and posting 3 reviews any way
      i say thats really balls to the wall

      i got few people from game trailers commuinty to agree with my opinon
      slash my thoughts on sonic unleashed wii
      here is my complete wording of what i said on there

      what u people don't get is that u can't top nor remake something that was years ago because people expectations are different now u can't really tell me that its to the point where its unplayable i got it for christmas for this year
      but i don't think its as bad as everyone says it is plus they only reviewed the wii version but wii version isn't that bad when u compare it to sonic 06
      now tell me why are u u guys buying into what game trailers is saying a review is nothing more than opinions on a game when u look at reviews u are just looking at opinions unless the reviewer goes into the game u really don't see how good or bad it is.
