the new macbook pro.

one thing there is to know about me is that i'm constantly in the apple store checking my email and working on their computers. i love the fact that you can walk in and use their internet for free...

they recently came out with the new macbook pro. i know nothing about technical specs, but i do know that the screen is just like the "air" and the keypad is like the old macbooks just silver with black keys (oh and as all the djs point out, a backlit keyboard).

for the past days i've been irritated by how the button on the mouse works. sometimes it treats a click like a "right click". i looked down and realized what exactly is different about this trackpad/mouse. its all one piece! interesting. yet another thing that's different.

short dog in the house!

after "the clearing" i went to house of chicken and waffles with cam, h, adam & phil.

i noticed too short was there, so i made it a point to take a picture with him.

how it went down:

he was with his girl at the counter seating area, i tapped him on the shoulder and said, "this is super embarrassing, but can i take a picture with you?"

short replies, "yeah... aye, you know how to fight?"

ism (aka me) says, "nah, to tell you the truth... i'm sure i can, but i've never been in a fight."

short, "you look like a superhero. (aye, don't she look like a superhero?)"

ism, "oh werd? (smiles*)"

short, "aight, let's take this picture."

hello brooklyn.

i took a trip out to brooklyn, new york a few weeks ago that totally changed my outlook of the state. i used to travel there heavily when i worked in the corporate music industry. my previous experience of ny was always crowded, hectic and the weather sucked (hot and humid) and people were mean.

this time around i stayed for 7 days, the weather was perfect mid 70's with a cool breeze. i spent time with some chill, down to earth folks, ate some really great food and got to know new york in a different way. it was a great vacation... just what i needed to come back and get back on track in the midst of multiple projects.

the next few posts will be the images i've captured throughout the trip. hello brooklyn and what's good new york?
