1. everyone is a resource, steal knowledge whenever possible.
2. manipulation is not only an art form but an essential and invaluable life skill. practice helps you understand the human perspective.
3. experience as much as possible. you never know if you’ll like a finger in your ass until you try.
4. never finish your food. cleaning your plate is how your parents programmed you into over-eating, you tubby bastards.
5. question everything. never stop asking why. always question motives, cause we all have em.
6. let your guard down when you say ‘i love you’, its only fair.
7. pay attention. easy concept but then why do you get taken advantage of all the goddamn time? cause you werent paying attention.
8. hang out with people who you feel are morally superior than you. the better the people you hang with, the better you’ll become.
9. trust your friends opinions, collectively they know you better than you know yourself.
10. its not a matter or perspective: the glass IS half empty, but live like its half full.

My new business card got in today, and I like em allot!. Big ups to Print Giants aka JPEG Graphics. I guess I’ll use them as my new premiere printer, as the seem to be the cheapest and fastest quick printer in Atlanta. I was a little worried when I first called, as someone answered the phone, “YES!” Yes, what kind of business are you running there. The initial phone customer service was real jankey, but it seem to be $40-100 less than the local competitors, so I just rolled with it. http://printgiants.com/
I’m in the process of re-branding myself, and designing my web, blog and tumblr. I’ll keep you posted. Follow me on Tumblr. http://joshuahooper.tumblr.com/
I saw this image on tumblr and thought what a fucking crock of shit!. What’s so fucked up about this poster is there is no representative of the modern skinny, yet super buxom beauty. Are Maxim Cover models not human being worthy of being loved too? WTF! There appears to be a growing cult of insecurity coupled with a victimology complex that seem hell bent on tearing down hot, beautiful, skinny, big breasted women with hour glass figures and whore-like sexual appetites. It’s no longer enough to simply worship these god-like women on magazine covers, billboards and on the tv machine from a far, and live vicariously through them, but now its acceptable for any plain Jane to declare she too is equally beautiful if not better than them for being “real”. This whole notion that everyone is beautiful is inherently bullshit because it’s based on the assumption that in this universe Flava Flav and Brad Pitt are in some way equals.
What kind of persons demands their sense of self worth from external reassurances? Retards, that’s who? Ironically, there liberal counter culture that seem to dictate to people, namely women, by definition are “independent, confident, strong, and beautiful” conversely only succeed in making the very people it advocate for more fragile and dependent of external source for their own self-esteem. Do you think Flava Flav waited for someone to give him permission to be worthy enough to allow swarms of hot, desperate skanks to fight for the honor to be able to fuck him as the PRIZE?
I get the whole love your body, but it seem like so many people just pay lip service to this empty expressions they have real concept of. Suppose you love your car… You’re probably washing it regularly, putting premium gas in it, taking it for checkups, rotating the tires, and even throw some D’s on that bitch (preferably ones that spin). Well, you’re no different. When you value yourself – or at the very lease you don’t hate yourself – you’re going to make an effort to care for yourself. This generally manifest itself in actively putting balance and nutritious foods in it, exercising regularly and maintaining the minimum levels of fitness, practicing good hygiene, and try not to smoke too many crack rocks.
Beyond that, what you do for YOU is determined by just how much you value YOU. Here we move beyond simply caring for and maintaining yourself and into the realm of actively improving oneself. Things like adhering to a schedule, going to the gym, eating healthy breakfasts, pursuing activities that develop you physically, mentally, or spiritually. Taking classes, travelling, enriching your life. I’ll tell you, I honestly do not know a single person who holds themselves in high regard who does not engage in the above activities.
This is my new business card. A few week ago I set out to make the world’s most awesome’est business card. It was the bomb, as seen HERE But I thought I’d push things forward, and make this mofo Super Awesome Deluxe, and this is the end result. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. My goal was for it to not just be good, but AMAZING! Bright. Bold. Sexy and Fun, and make you saw WOW everytime! …while demostration my skills as a bad ass creative person. I try to look at what EVERYONE is doing, and then do the opposite. I’m open for comissions and creative jobs. JuicyJ@Pixel-Pimp.com Thanks!
