N.E.R.D. @ Livestock

Oh man...do I ever have a story for you tonight...its 442am...but man, this story needs to be told before I lose the hype and enthusiasm...lol

First of all shout outz to my home boy Skam, Andy, Auggie, Hektor, Carlos and Victoria (the Livestock crew).

So let me try to describe to how interesting the day was for me. First of all I had an assignment due today, but I skipped class and handed it straight to the department. And then I have a class where a group project is due; a 25 page paper thats split between 5 group members...let me tell you how I dont have a fuckin group yet! I think proposals are due next week and I dont even have a fuckin group! Im fuckin doomed!!! The professor asked who wasnt in a group last week and I didnt raise my hand cuz of pride issues. lmao

Anyhow now on to the Pharrell story, so Falesha and I get to Livestock around 4ish...its late considering that Pharrell was supposed to be there by 4 but didnt show til like 5ish. The line was pretty intense, running south on Spadina and then wrapping around and down King St. (I think i deleted the lineup pictures by accident...sorry.) But since I know 'Photo Falesha', we didnt have to line up with the 300 or so people...we just walked straight into the shop on some VIP shit (thanks Falesha). lol
So anyways, Skam asked me to be there today to take pictures. So one would assume, it was cool too and Mr. Williams wouldnt be bothered by it. Anyhow, Pharrell shows up...I snap...then again, snap...snap snap snap...snap snap...and then Pharrell turns around and says
"Can you PLEASE stop taking pictures...?"
Not knowing how to react except to be embarrassed, stick my chin into my neck and 'turtle'...I lowered my camera, lightly frowned, sat down and tucked my camera away. Falesha at that point didnt know what was going on yet.

So Falesha goes up to get my 3 album inserts signed.
"So sorry, I brought a few things for you to sign."
"Oh, thats fine." says Pharrell with his head down still, not knowing whose speaking. He then raises his head
Falesha blushes
"You're beautiful."
"Thank you." she says bashfully
"Whats your background?"
"German and Jamaican."
"Sorry, whats that?"
"Oh, German and Jamaican. Black and white."
"Oh, well you're beautiful." he says while smiling with stars glistening in his eyes.
"Thank you."
"Im sure you didnt need me to tell you that tho."
He stares at her during the awkward silent...he then signs the inserts.
"Thank you." she says shyly and walks away nervously back to me.

I laugh at her when she got back.
"OMG! That was so awkward."
and then she told me the story. lol

So basically he denies my photos and then tries to take my girlfriend away from me! Jeeze! Can an Asian dude get a chance?! lol

I aint mad tho, I would have been the same way if I was 'Pha Real' (I call him Pha Real cuz he's the truth).

Falesha says,
"I dont get what he sees. lol."
"Why not?"
"Its not like Im hot."
"It doesnt matter if you're hot or not. You're beautiful. Hot is a fad and only relative to a culture and time. Beautiful is timeless. Its nondebatable."

Anyways, moving on from the sap. lol

We stay there for the whole session in the store behind the cash counter. After awhile she decides and says,
"Im going to get another signiture for my brother. Im just gonna wait til the end."
"You mean wait til the end so you can talk to him with no rush of a line up behind you, you mean? lol"
(PS. I have no insecurity issues. Im joking)
"OMG Will! lol"
"Dont believe what he says. He's just a rich superstar with a lot of talent! He doesnt care about you! Just please dont accept the offer if he asks you to come back to the hotel with you. The last thing I wanna hear is you coming back to me and saying, you'll meet at the concert cuz your going back to the telley with Pharrell...I will cry! lol. I like listening to Pharrell, dont make stop listening to him ok?!"
"OMG Will! lmao. Relax."

Obviously, it woulda never happened, but had this been an alternate universe and Falesha did disappear with Pharrell, basically the day would consist of me skipping class and not finding a group for my 25 page paper, being told by Pharrell to stop taking pics of him, then him chopping my gf, and then him taking my girlfriend away! Wow! If i woulda just stayed in class this shit woulda never happened. like how much fuckin worse could life get! lmao

Thank god this is not an alternate universe...That would be one shitty day to say the least.

I might not sing songs, have my own clothing line or rich...but Drake does mention me in the 'Im Still Fly Remix'...lmao!!!

Fuck I kill myself.

PS. I dont care if you guys take these pictures. Im not a selfish dude..I only ask that you guys credit me or the blog with the photos. Leave a link for people to trail back here.

Peace and love and sorry for the damn long writing on the post. I thought it was funny.

Somehow, Lances eyes are still bigger than mine in this pic...wtf man!
Im gonna get a beard Bobby, you watch! Its being FEDEXed to me right now as a matter of fact.
Im on my Astro Boy shit...lol

Big ups to my fam, Skam.

Good job to Photo Falesha for taking this pic of Pharrell and the guys while I had to step out of the store. Bom bom!
Top Flight Security aka Andy...tired as a mofuckah after managing all the fans and the lineup. He also had 18 vitamin waters...vitamin crash I guess.
