Leap Year ¦ @jixifox

Not around much only of special occassions,
What memories do we aim for every situation?
I want it bad, I want it now, I deserve the chance,
I want it everyday, I want to be special, I want it to last.

Exciting “Green Shade Glow” Performance at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe – 2/27

I am so excited to say I had a blast at my performance at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, New York City for Open Mic Monday on February 27, 2012.  I had a game plan and went in and execute with a lot of fun.   I had the green shades on tonight getting live (reason I wore them, because their spotlight be super bright, to blind someone on stage), I also perform the 1st single off my upcoming Hip-Hop Ep album “The Burna Effect” in which I decided to go with a photo I already had as the album cover.

I performed a little warm up freestyle called, “Get Up” in which is just a joint I use or going to tend pick up once in a while to fill my 5 minute time slot at Open Mics I will be attending.  I almost forget, the song/freestyle will be on the album (silly me), and I also performed “Girls” which is the first single off the album in which this performance is the first time I performed an original song with a beat created and produced by myself, so I was extra proud of that fact.

Either way the performance went like clock work, even though minimal and simple, I felt I am warming up to stage performances.  I can’t wait to get better. I did happen to have a prop malfunction which was quite funny to me, but it didn’t hinder what I was doing, so the show went on.

I insert a few comedic lines and storytelling in between songs, which worked pretty well.  I think I am going to continue to test those out, as well as my witty stage introduction in which I try to get some laughs in quick by the audience, because overall I want everyone to have a good time.

Thanks, for taking the time to read my experience and I hope you come and see my perform one day soon.  I should be doing many more shows at the Nuyorican and other places throughout the year.  But you can always see and listen to my works via Soundcloud ReverbNation and Vimeo Youtube if you can’t make it to a show or in a different city or country.

Not On Deck | @jixifox

If things aint on DECK, people aint seen it YET,
They are too far gone (Drake), they need to open up their eyes (WAKE),
They not eating right (NO FOOD upon THEIR DINNER PLATE),
They can’t even keep up (they SLOW, LATE).

Real Life, Creative & Unscripted

I live life with crazy action pack sequences synced into a body of multiple characters that work hard all day everyday, and still look at life with a positive outlook.  I don’t need others to verify or validate what it is I do, the lack of sleep, how I prioritize my approach on life and/or getting things done, because I am the one doing them, not them.  I been in a confined area locked from opportunity half of my life (being too young, being dependent on others), and once I saw that to break free I had to be the true me and have everything comes from me, the quicker I learned and became a better me.

I know I have loved ones, family, friends, special people in my life that cares and look out for my best interests, but I feel they have not walked in my…

I keep my eyes on the prize,
I work hard everyday to survive,

Time after time I remind them I am still here.

such a awesome blog post…the things they never told us.

Doctor Quack

When I turned twenty, I was under the impression that life was going to be a party for the next ten years. I was sorely mistaken. You see… I was warned about a couple things: my metabolism will decrease, I’ll get fatter, academic work will get harder, I’ll have to pay taxes; but there are a lot of things no one warned me about.

So I have written this list, projecting my personal experiences onto my fellow twenty-something friends and colleagues who are themselves possibly struggling with the same things I struggle with in this deeply confusing decade we call our twenties.

1. Twenties are the new teens.

People in their thirties often tell me that the thirties are the new twenties, so what does that make us? Well, unfortunately, as if we didn’t already suffer enough in the confusing and disorienting teenage years, we have to do it all…

Happy Endings | @jixifox

It is so good after the deed is done,
It’s a good deed, happiness all around, lots of fun,
The end can bring joy, tears and even a smirk,
It is always good at the end, worth wild, oh what a worth. (yum)

Twitter Twisted | @jixifox

Recklessly posting, ranting being a hash tag fiend,
People confused and shocked can’t believe what they are seeing,
Drunk tweeting to a beat, the truth is up in the air,
So totally twisted, so whatever to it all, I don’t even care.  (until tomorrow lol)
