It's about the Money.

the idea of this chart is to look under your annual salary range. then you compare the tax decrease/increases. at least for me, i think, majority of my friends and family will have a higher tax decrease under obama's tax proposal than mccain(which means more money being able to put your own personal good use). if we were under mccain's tax proposal that just shows how fucking selfish fucking americans are! you make the money, help out the rest of us!

McCain vs Obama

I said my name is JEFF!

de la soul - me, myself, and i

The Joys.

even though i am 22 (almost 23), i still enjoy playing in the playground. these days it's all pvc and plastic coated monkeybars, i sorta miss the metal smelling/pinched/splintered hands i get after playing in the park.


all of that reminded me when i was just a kid playing on these weird metal sculpture. once i was doing some flips and i broke my jade necklace, damn was my dad pisted! HA!


i love puppies!

This Weekend

i had a realization again this weekend. i really don't like people. besides for those who truly understand me, the rest of them are just there for pure entertainment.

i now see why people have kids (besides to procreate), it's so they can TRY to mold that child that they have into someone that can really relates to them (because everyone is selfish and always thinks about only themselves). but it usually doesn't work because they expose that child into an open world that will fill their minds with odds and ends which causes them to think outside of their box, and to question their guide. and that is when parents start to disprize their child and try really really hard to mold them back into place, but it is too late. those children become the annoyingly irritating young and even old adults that i deal with today.

I Love You.

Green Mill, how i love your essences.

on a cold lonely night, you are always there to keep me warm, and your friends and family are there to keep me company. ohhh green mill, how i love you so.

Green Mill

last night i went to the green mill by myself. i was suppose to meet a friend there, but as usual this guy didn't get my texts or calls until about three hours after i got to gm. at least i got to meet bob, a lovely mumbling 73 year old man.

oh yes! I learn that big al has been playing the accordion since he was 5! this man is awesome! fucckk! i wish i didn't miss his bbq.. :(

The Tiger

last night i went over to bob's tattoo shop, insight studios, to get my tattoo finished by ryan. i must say this guy is talented. he gave my tattoo a totally different feel. even though it wasn't finished when i came in the first place, but it was nearly done. he retouched and added a more realistic feel on my piece. i am soooo grateful for this man.

Newsweek: Sarah Palin

are you serious?! they are debating whether or not an untouched photo is fair or unfair. who gives a fuck how these people look! it's about their capabilities of running this fucking country!

and what the fuck do you expect, it's a fat chick (that doesn't care about the untouching) vs and skinny bitch (that thinks it's 'horrifying').

Ohhh shoes...

i know with our financial crisis (my financial crisis), I should not be shopping as much, but i am. and look at these shoes. they are recycles from old car interior parts, bicycle tires, and other miscellaneous stuff.

to be found here


more issues on america.

below is a long youtube video of a chick, naomi wolf. and she is talking about her new book Give Me Liberity, explaining the shitty stuff about america and it's government.

then this dude is just reminding us that we are going to drown in our debt from today and scandals of yesterdays.

oh yes, and a link to "The End of America" trailer.

The World's Economy

so im pretty sure just about everybody knows about this subprime mortgage crisis/global credit crisis. if you are wondering how it started, NPR's This American Life has two episodes that dumbs it down for those that do not understand finance lingo.

Episode 355: Giant Pool of Money
Episode 365: Another Frightening Show About the Economy
Episode 355 has a transcript for those that really need to sink in and understand those words.

to those brokerage, what comes around goes around. fucking greedy assholes! that's what you get!!!

Robert Taylor's Neighborhood

along chicago's east-side between 39th and 54th are the robert taylor homes. project homes that are funded by the government for those who have low-income. folks that use to live in these homes probably paid about 50 bucks, maybe less, depending on financial rises. well these home have been torn down or getting torn down since 2007.

little facts of the robert taylor homes, they once were known to be the largest housing project in the world in 1962 at a 2 mile stretch that had a peak of 27,000 residents. of the 27,000 residents celebrities that were housed there are mr. t, kirby puckett, and massachusetts governor deval patrick.

for a photo assignment i had, we were suppose to take pictures of human absence or human intimacy. being unsocial as i am, i choose human absence and had carneyville/bronzeville (which is the neighborhood the robert taylor homes were located) as location of human absence. both neighborhood has a high amount of abandon homes, factories, and storefronts, so i thought it would be appropriate.

and one enlargement i got...
this photo was taken over by perishing and stewart. not too sure if this was a part of a factory, but i believe across the street was a public school. i could be wrong.

to see other photos i have not enlarged yet, i have my contact sheet below. click on the photo for a larger view.
