The evil’s of technology.

Checking our text messages, emails, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social networks in a deep sea of many

Always comes first before thanking God for allowing and giving us the honor of waking up to another day of life

 Saying grace before a meal has been replaced by taking a picture of it for likes on Instagram

We have forgotten that meals aren’t bragging rights they are blessings

That there are people in third world countries who go days without eating

Who will eventually die of hunger

And here we are taking pictures of our food instead of thanking God for an unappreciated blessing

We are letting technology raise our children

Electricity is beginning to run through their veins

Their tender developing minds know nothing more than what Google is teaching them

We buy our 5 year-old children iPad’s instead of the childhood books we learned to love at that innocent age

We buy our adolescents iPhones instead of bibles

We take them to the apple store more often than we take them to church

They are beginning to think with their fingers and thumbs instead of their brains

Kids are killing themselves due to the online taunting of their peers

Bullying has been made easier by the anonymity that comes with owning these human made devices

And we witness all of this but we do nothing to stop it

Social gatherings are no longer the same

We sit in a round table surrounded by friends

The sound of laughter and a good time

Has been replaced by the sound of incoming text messages

More focused on seeing what strangers are tweeting instead of listening to the stories of our life long friends

Making eye contact has become a thing of the past everyone is looking down at their phones their faces illuminated by the brightness of their cellphone screens

Online lovers overflowing like water in a cup under a running faucet

We’ve become so attached to these strangers making them our online significant others

Men chasing the digital skirts of women who they will most likely never meet

Women investing their time into men thousands of miles away from them

Lusting over the online images of these people not remembering that not everyone is who he or she claims to be

Dating has been made easier by registering for an eHarmony account

Yet we lack the common sense to realize that we are playing Russian roulette risking our lives

Because you can’t tell a rapist, serial killer, or mentally deranged person from a normal person just by a profile picture

Our lives are quickly melting into nothing under technology’s burning flame even Dali would be stunned

The story of our lives will be composed from a mixture of our emails and Facebook posts

The legacy we will leave behind will consists of nothing more than the amount of twitter followers we acquired

Unlike our cellphones and laptops we aren’t made of glass or plastic material

Our skin melanin infused and our body composed of cells, bones, and water

We have an expiration date and one day we will die

And reality is that the pearly gates of heaven wont be as accessible as our Wi-Fi

We will have to stand before God and explain to him why we doubted the bible but we never doubted anything that we read online

 

 

 

 

ENDEAVOUR Space Shuttle over LA

Im pretty sure you all seen pics, heard about it and probably sick and tired of it by now! This afternoon around 12 The Space Shuttle strapped to the back of a airplane took over the LA sky for a cool hour or so!

I was at home watching the shit on TV, the news was everywhere today! At the observatory, surrounding LAX, at USC, on top of sky scrapers in DTLA, at the airport hangin with real life astronauts and just on random streets…. EVERYBODY was outside! the news was on imperial and there was just people ontop of people.. looked like the crowd at the Lakers Parade! Shit was crazy!

and then that shit came cruising over Malibu then Santa Monica then all of a sudden that shit was over the City! Around the observatory, up to the Hollywood sign, around Downtown LA, then teased everybody by LAX and then swooping back around heading back to Downtown LA then shot down to the OC for a minute and looped around Disneyland then hit the Coast and cruised back up to the Queen Mary! and then that shit shot straight up the mothafuckin 110 Freeway! So you know i had to step outside for that shit! the 110? i was like nah, that shit aint cruisin over the inner city’s like that! and sure enough! shot back up the 110 and it looked like it made a left by the el segundo blvd exit and mashed back towards LAX and then i heard that shit rumbling…

and seen it, pretty far away tho! but you can see that shit and hear it! so i tried to snap some pics when it was headed back towards LAX

That little white spec between the top of that brown house and the telephone pole was the Shuttle…

Now the little spec is to the left of the brown house, right before that group of Palm Tree’s.. So i was like this shit is wack! its too far to catch a real pic im going back inside the house to make me a sandwich!

and then i see that shit making another U turn by santa monica on the news and its heading back… So i step outside again when i hear all that loud noise and…

Space Shuttle was cruising in GARDENA! That shit was dam there above the house!!! shit looked big as fuck and it was loud as shit! some other neighbors came out to snap some pics (fuckers i aint NEVER seen in my life before.. and i’ve lived in this area for a loooooooooong ass time) hahahaaa

So you know i had to jump on Instagram one time! hahahaaa

only got like 30 somethin likes but its cool! Dope shot of the Space Shuttle catchin a Piggy Back ride on a plane! When am i gona see some shit like that again? hahahahaaaa hit me on Instagram tho NONSTOP166

Well that shit hit another U Turn around USC or some shit and headed back to LAX to land around 1pm, so it was rollin around LA for a cool hour or so! shit was trippy to see!

Then Instagram went CRAZY!! everybody was posting pics! so i was gettin my LIKE on, you know! it was cool to see that other people was trippin out too… and then about 2 hours later! my timeline got flooded with the same dam pics back to back! The Copy and Pasters just killed me! To my understanding… I thought instagram was a social network that let people experiment with Cell Phone Photography, photo filters and try to push their creativity to new levels! You know snap a picture and then try to jazz it up with a filter and then post it so people can like it! But when i seen how many people were just copy and pasting other “COOL” pics that somebody else took, i just gave up! hahahahahaaaa! I swear i seen the SAME picture of the shuttle over the DTLA Sky Line like 13 times! Thats when you know the HYPE has officially set in and people just wanted to post something cuz everybody else was hahahahahahaaaa!

SInce the COPY and PASTERS were out in full force! I dropped this shit in circulation! hahahaaa

Seen it get ReTweeted and then just stolen… and then i even seen it later in the day with out the STILLANOBODY.COM on the bottom… somebody just cropped that shit out! hahahahahahahaaa!!!

But other than that! Shit was cool! Seen a fuckin Space Ship riding on the back of a fuckin Air Plane today! How dope is that! Not too many people can say that shit! hahahahahahaa

Stay Up Fuckers

STOP

ISLAND MADE

So if you know ME, you might have seen me rockin a hat that looks like this….

or one that looks like this…

Or if you DONT know ME, maybe you just seen me or one of my cousins rollin around wearing a hat just like that! I’ve made them in Black/White, Blue/White, Red/White, Green/White, Brown/Tan etc…

I started making these hats a few years ago to play off a shirt I also made that said “ISLAND MADE CALI RASIED” 

I hit up 80% of the Reggae shows in Southern California and 98% of the ISLAND Reggae shows out here! Most people who see the hat, look but dont want to stare but i can see them sounding out what it says and some people hit me up like “Dope Hat” or “that shit is HARD” or “Ho’ Brah! dat bugga mean ahhhhh” and thats cool! Just recently some people have been taking pictures of it, trying to figure out how i made it, want to know where i made it or where i got it and some people have offered me money for’em! hahahaaa and its all cool… But….

This past thursday i went to the Katchafire show at the Anaheim House of Blues and i seen a WHITE kid rockin a cheap version of my hat and he told somebody that he started that shit… I was dissapointed…

I had seen that same white kid at the J-Boog show last month in Redondo Beach at the Brixton and he took a picture of my hat cuz he said it was “DOPE”… So i guess he bought a Black and White LA hat, took it to some janky ass embroidery spot and tried to Re-Create my shit! But his hat was a fuckin SNAP BACK, His letters were way bigger than the LA logo, He got the wrong letters and this idiot colored the White LA logo yellow to make it look “Red Yellow and Green” hahahaaaa

Its cool if you like the hat and want to make one for yourself! But atleast do it right… and dont try to tell people that you MADE that shit up! Shout out to to this other cat who i seen at the J-Boog show and at the Katchafire show… Dude said he was gona make one too…. and had his Girlfriend snap a pic of it… hahaaa 

As far as i know… there is only a few of us rockin these hats.. Me and 5 of my cousins (T-OSO, Boog, Java, Snoop and Justin from ISLANDERS Car Club) and my little nephew Keanu… anybody else might be an imposter! hahahahahahahaaa and i made most of those hahahahaaa!

So if your gona do it? Do it RIGHT!

YOU SEEN IT HERE FIRST!!!!

NONSTOP

L.A SHIT

Alright so today i was just crusin at work minding my own business when i got a phone call from my homegirl. She told me to go to her office cuz she wanted to show me something. I get there and what does she show me??? a Mixtape Cover of her cousin and friend from Maine… The title of the Tape was called “Born in my CHUX” Yes! “CHUCKS was spelled CHUX” and it was a pic of a Black Dude in a loooong ass white shirt with some wrinkled ass tan dickies and some dusty ass chucks with black shoe strings in’em… and the black dude is standing next to a white dude in a white T with a drunk ass collar, Silver Chain and Cross, with low top chucks, saggin his dickies down to his knees with like a 3 inch cuff on his pants tucked behind the tongue of his chucks….. LOL

**I wanna post a pic of that shit on here but i dont wanna give these corn balls the promotion nor do i want to infect our site with that foolishness… But i might tweet that shit hahahaa @N0NST0P **

So after seeing that cover i HAD to listen to the tape, i told my homegirl to put it on her favorite track on the whole mixtape… She put its on #6 “only in my hood” which is a song these guys did over Ice Cubes “it was a good day” beat! and i dont know which guy said this but that shit just killed me… he said “Chucks on my feet, black toe socks, guns underneath, SMACK HOE ROCKS” hahahahahahaaaaaa… so after hearing that, i started rollin cuz my homegirl was dead serious that, that was her favorite record on that tape! and she was super proud of her cousin….

Now im not knockin these guys hustle and im not dissin their flow or choice of lyrics… what i am knockin is these bafoons took an iconic LA uniform and turned it into a fuckin circus outfit… Chucks, Dickies and White T’s is a Los Angeles STAPLE! and might i add ONLY Los Angeles cats know how to rock that shit! Now before you get all lame and say “who are you to say who can where what and what looks good” i am NOT the fuckin Fashion Police! But i do know what looks Crispy and what looks Lousy… and also i grew up seeing this outfit at BarBQ’s, Party’s, Crenshaw, Swap Meets, Malls, Car Shows, Church, Bus Stops, Car Washes… EVERY WHERE! i even rock that fit myself! its not rocket science to pull it off but if your not from around here you wont look right in it…

Being a fellow Los Angelino i grew up in this Lifestyle! Born and Rasied! Used to be able to hit the indoor swap meet with 50 bucks and come out with a full fit for your saturday activities…

20 on some High Top Chucks

20 on some brand new Khaki Dickies (OG’s with NO pleats and none of that “cell phone” pocket shit!)

5 for a brand new Pro Club White T (that tight neck collar shit… No Drunk Necks in LA)

and you take that last 5 and go get your chain and ear rings cleaned and shined up at the jewelry spot!

Now you take that $50 outfit home… Bust the tags off the Dickies and take the size stickers off and lay them shits on your ironing board… Not flat legged! you grab the pants by the button in the front and the back belt holes and you shake that bitch out once hard as shit! FLAPPP! now you lay it on the ironing board just like that, as if the pants are laying side ways on the ironing board! you fold up the top pant leg up to the crotch and then fold it at the knee to move it out the way.. now you can start ironing… give it a cool press then you hit it with the starch and press it again (if its black dickies you might wanna hit it with starch then lay a rag or something over it before you hit it with the iron or you’ll get white flakes from the starch on your pants! *HOOD SECRETS* LOL) Now you do both sides, front and back on both legs… Now you dont just throw’em on your bed after ironing… you gotta lay’em flat, grab’em by the front button and back belt loop and slide it off the board and onto your bed… you dont wanna fuck up that crispy ass crease….

Since your pants are done now you gotta iron out the fold marks on your new shirt! Now you gotta turn the steam down on the iron first because you dont want none of that iron build up in the holes to leak onto your new white T! and leave a brownish rust stain! that aint cool! hahahaaa so you press the shirt! if your a real LA OG you put a crease down the front and back of your white T! *OG SHIT*

after that you take your new chucks out of the box, unlace the factory lacing and start new. Start off the first holes and make sure your laces are even on both sides and the laces are flat going across then you start the cross lacing, gotta make sure you go Over and Under and then in true LA shit you get the Tongue on your high tops active and you fold that down! Most chucks that come from the swap meet got a factory fold in the tongue already! You can either lay it flat under the Crossed laces or you can tie your shoe lace over the folded tongue…

Now its time throw it all together… throw your pants on with that fresh ass crease (if you did it right, them shits could dam there stand up on their own lol) throw your chucks on, tie’em up and if you want you can cuff the bottom of your dickies up once! just that first part thats sewn. THATS IT! if you cuff it up a second time WE know dam well you aint from around here! Throw on that Wife Beater and then its time for your Pro Club…. BOOM! now your ready for your day… BARBQ, Cruising, Posted on the block… whatever! but you look and feel like a million bucks, even tho everybody knows that fit only cost 50 they cant front on that classic look! No Wrinkles, Chucks aint Dusty, and your White T aint drunk and leaning off your shoulder!

Now for my REAL L.A Hood cats…

If your a LA OG you had this label on the back of your pants or on the shirt pocket of your shirt! BEN DAVIS is some extra OG shit! hahahaaaaa

all im saying is that… Dont try and jack that Los Angeles lifestyle if your not gona do it right! You dont see LA cats rockin Army Fatigues, Timberland Boots, Bubble Jackets with Hoody’s underneath… thats a East Coast thing! and plus its too dam hot out here to dress like that! hahahahaa!!! So Stay in your Lane or you’ll get Ran over!

-STOP
