ARCHIVE : BALD HEADED CUTIE NAMED DANIELA

 

HI 

So I thought of starting an archive series on my blog. Because I never happened to post them but I did’nt want all these hours of scanning pictures go to waste. So why not bring a bit nostalgic vibes on my blog ?

This is Daniela. 

One day I was out with my sister and we saw her  and I was like “Damn this girl is pretty and a perfect photo model *insert crying emoji* .” ( I was not literally crying but I felt like this emoji was impersonating me perfectly in this very situation).

And my sister was just like ” Go and ask her. ” I have to admit, I get a bit nervous when randomly talking to strangers but I still did it ( and now I feel no shame in doing this).

So I walked up to her, at the underground station, and just casually asked her if she would like me to take her pictures. She said yes.

This way I got to know a lot of interesting people and I am truly hapy for that now.

 

 

These pictures were taken on a KodakGold200 film back in August.

BERLIN PT.2

Yo

Wassup? So I was in Berlin a few weeks ago (yes, again) and took some pics (as usual). This summer was indeed an all analouge summer. And Yes you are safe to assume that I am broke as hell now and that I spent hours scanning pictures. But yea that’s fun so whatever right? But I still don’t get why shooting film is so expensive, even though a lot of people started shooting film again. #makeshootingfilmgreatagain

So who them beautiful and cool people on those photos huh?

  “Hi can I take your picture?” “yea.” ( I sadly do not know his name )

Bild (209)Bild (210)

Don’t know his name either but he was just sitting there bumping his mixtape and being totaly happy with himself and his life. I aspire to reach this level of satisfaction. I bought his mixtape, because you should always support great artists.

   Just an ordinary man peing in the corner, nothing unusual.

And I don’t know his name either. I was too shy to ask him for his name but not shy enough to ask if I could take a pic (?).

I know his name. It’s Joshua. He sure got some sick skating skills. Check out his instagram.

Thanks for reading (and supporting) so far.

NRW on 35mm

HI

Everyone that knows me well knows that I hate Munich and would rather live anywhere else than in this city and that, in fact, I grew up in the North West of Germany and never stop making this clear whenever I meet new people, because I’m still reppin’ and representin’ North(R)West. So it’s a special kind of bound I have to this place. The “Block” I’m claiming to be from is Wuppertal, Elberfeld to be more precisely. That’s where I spent nearly my whole childhood and made the best experiences ( and then I moved to Munich lol). 

 A few weeks ago I decided to visit some friends there and spent some time and, of course, shoot. It’s been five years now since the last time I have visited my hometown so it’s really been bout damn time. It really was great coming back. 10/10 would do it again.

For me it was important to catch the vibe while chilling with cool people and having a good time. Most of the time this is what it’s all about, no further meaning or “message”. Not everything needs explanation. Just do what you want. Or what you feel like.

 

 

 

Special s/o to Adriano (visit his  tumblr ), Nick and my sistah Inas .

OG’S FINEST

Hi everybody fuego is back

I’m still alive and back with them new new film shots. So as you can tell this really is my first all analogue post. I finally got to see and scan these pictures I took  right before I left to visit my hometown (ofc I took some pics there too). And I still got a lot of analogue pictures from the time I was in Istanbul and Berlin I didn’t scan but since I got plenty of time on my hands right now, I know what I will be doing the next few weeks. Believe me this takes a lot of time but whilst you are scanning and analysing pictures you’ll forget about the time and suddenly it’s 4 AM and you catch yourself waking up from falling asleep infront of the open refrigerator next to your mom asking herself what she might did wrong.

Anyways,

I got to chill with the OG GANG and took some pictures of them casually strolling around in their neighborhood. They are all really cool people to hang out and shoot some good pictures with. Everyone of them is an individual and most of them are friends since like forever becaus they grew up together in this neighborhood. So the location was more meaningful this time I guess. I was really happy to shoot such authentic and cool people that just be themselves and chill in their hood, that create and stay together.

So stay true to your block and support some “real mothefuckin’ OGs”.

belated post with minimalistic pictures

Hi everyone.

How is y’all doing? So this time I won’t excuse myself because I had some school stuff to do the last few weeks (I didn’t do it lol). Anyways there is still a lot to come on this blog. There may be just 13-ish people that actually read this blog but I won’t disappoint my true and loyal readers. I do this for y’all.

Actually I don’t even know why I am doing this whole photography thing. I just want to share the stuff I do, with others and everyone that feels like having a look at my work and is interested in the things I be doing, when I’m not sleeping or binge watching any Netflix shows and sometimes (very rare, almost too rare) Animes.

yeah. I got told my blog is very authentic. This was what I was aiming for.

Anyways back to  the actual post this  was just a quick introduction to this post.

This shoot was a few weeks ago. With a dude called Lukas . He is a really kind and sweet person. Was really fun shooting with him. I have to admit that I did not plan anything for this shoot, but his whole outfit unintentionally matched the location and he was almost blending in with this grey metallic wall because of his grey GOSHA hoodie. 

I also shot some pictures on my analogue cam that day. This shit is starting to get really expensive damn I might need a second job. If a lifestyle/fashion/art magazine is tryna hire holla at your girl with the job info lol.

So I hope you enjoyed reading this post.

I’m out b.

Skate park session pt.2

Yo wassup people

So as you may tell I’m back from Istanbul, a few pounds heavier, but I’m here again and who tf actually cares bout weight ( the people weighing your baggage at the airport do lol ). 

Anyways I had a great time being there and was shooting film the whole time to capture the real feeling and atmosphere of the city, I just hope they turn out well. So stay tuned for the analogue madness ( I’m still working on the name ).

This skatepark is like one of the best locations I’ve ever came a cross. And I am slowly running out of good locatins so that was also a reason for me to pull up to the same spot again ( for the third time now ). This was a YOUNG PICASSOS x MOUBSEN session. Sadly the trio wasn’t there shooting together, it was just Kc and me. But we still managed to get some nice shots, even though the weather wasn’t playing along as usual.

We planned doing this session with Moubsen, the infamous munich streetstyle blogger, for a long time actually. But everytime you plan on doing something and already have some specific visions in your head it never turns out the way you expected it to be. But this is what it’s all about – the moment. Making the best out of your surroundings while using every bit of the moment you are given. ( I hope this don’t sound too corny lol).

Anyways I hope you enjoyed the post and the now following pictures.

Just make sure to check out his blog too and check out trulsblog.

As always, have a great and bessed day.

fuego is out.

Platonic love.

ATTENTION: USE OF RACIAL LANGUAGE AND STRONG LANGUAGE BUT I’M BLACK, MUSLIM AND ARABIAN SO I’M ALLOWED TO USE IT ALL CAUSE I’M HATED IN THREE LANES BY CONSERVATIVES AIGHT?

 

I totally fucked my schedule up. You see ? I’m not 100% organized yet but people in Qatar and Arabia in general aren’t really about sticking to a schedule and organisation, so I’ll just make the god damn “sandniggers” responsible for my personal fuck up cause I support the Republicans now and also where was Obama on 9/11 ? Nigga never in the oval office.

25-barack-obama-had-a-big-part-9-11-not-being-10073416

Well enough politics, we going deep today. Oh damn, we going really deep today ma ninja. Like we going deep beyond all the shit you and Lil Fuego might consider deep (and I tried to fill these brackets three times with something you guys might find deep but it was so stupid I just ended up writing this).

In celebration of my love’s birthday, June 11th, write it down nigga, we’ll be talking (Master Gelato talks, you listen) about platonic love. Now, brace yourself, cause this will be a long read.

What is platonic love ?

Google it. But basically it’s love without any sexual element to it. Your immature stupid ass prolly don’t get this but yes you can actually love a woman and not lose your mind for, wine for, dine for or spend time for, see no colored line for, doubleback handicapped and go blind for P. U. S. S. Y . Excuse me for the little reference but I thought this really is the perfect transition for addressing the problem.

 Relationships these days often have sex as one of the first sometimes even only and most important milestones. This makes attraction the big focus of relationships and frankly takes affection completely out of the importance. It isn’t about two souls connecting and forming a bond that isn’t a fleshly one (100% sure that word doesn’t exist) but it’s about when and how often y’all fucking. Meet in the club, have a drink or two, dance, make out, go home, fuck and if you like the sex you are more likely to repeat the process in some way or another but let’s just take a moment to analyse the situation:

 You meet in the club, the perfect setting to NOT have a conversation, you and your target of the night are inebriated, the perfect situation for you to NOT be yourself, then you dance, which you most likely can’t (that has absolutely nothing to do with the point I’m making but I just wanted to front your dancing skills) and this is all you did before having sex. Great. You and your partner in crime get ultimately intimate without knowing shit about each other but that he/she has your genital of choice and is willing to satisfy your uncontrollable urge to do the boogie. And then if an actual relationship results from that one encounter y’all crying or confused when shit goes down the drain.

Platonic love on the other hand is what happens when you recognize the importance of conversation, of character and are in contrary able to controll your horn-o-meter. Now I’m just a (better than Fuego) human and I won’t act like I’m the holy ghosts fleshly brother (this word rock), even the most platonic of my loves had one or two sexual moments but I knew who the fuck I was being with. I didn’t just know her name, what drink she preferred and how she responded to what type of game I used, no I actually knew her, her likes, her family history, what gets to her, most importantly her bad sides and what makes her who she is psychologically, adoring all that and that’s what makes the difference because our love is able to sustain all the things we’ve encountered up until now, us both being totally fine at the lack of the sexual element.

Think about it: You love a person, the idea of that person’s personality is a good one for you and I won’t say you love everything about her/him cause you always hate something about anyone you truly love. And you connect, experience feelings of joy and enlightenment from the sheer bond your souls share, believe me man, pussy just don’t is that important anymore. As a male: After you have your little porn (dat shit disgusting and bad for you) fantasy re-enactment and you climax your brain is wired to automatically throw in some of that less-interest-juice and maybe when your inner Gelato reads you this article in a millisecond (totally capable of that) resulting in the realization of “ugh this chick I just had a wrestling match with is actually not really my type/really annoying/plain weird/a Republican/a genuine Chris Brown fan (after he beat Rihanna)” maybe then you’ll wish that next time you do the deed  you do it with someone special. Unless of course you are most comfortable getting to know people when you’re sweaty and naked. And then you got a whole nother problem son.

Basically that’s why religions tell you to wait until marriage because then you can really enjoy the most intimate of things and believe me if you fall in love with someone platonically first before you bring the sexual element into it, you can avoid a lot of shit and actually experience the bond of two souls (also sex will most likely be better then, just saying(like a lot)).  Giving up sex, the highest of physical connections, fast makes me think “oh well physical element already here so the mental level probably ain’t too difficult either, what’s there to gain ?” or basically “She a cheap one”. If you’re not looking for only a fuck then that’s not the way to go I tell you.

Or you just keep hoeing around 😉

A week full of Ice Cream and Watermelown

In case Lil Fuego didn’t tell you privately, contrary to her promise of always keeping you up to date when she begged you to subscribe to her then (before the advent of Big Gelato) miserable blog, I’m gonna take over this blog for a week which will probably extend it’s life for another six months and make it resistant to all the lil fuego posts to come. My goal is to make about 3-4 posts. One about music, one about deep shit, one probably about some less deep shit and one about Qatar cause I be’s there now.

 

So I’m listening to Quasimoto and sitting in Qatar right now and wondering what I tell you youngens about today. Hm….. I just graduated high school (unofficially but fuck my prom/graduation ceremony (they had to put the two together cause they broke (which then again is because they suck at life))) and as you may or may not expect I’m all like FUCK EVERYBODY, NO MORE HOMEWORK ALTHOUGH I NEVER DONE IT ANYWAYS, I’M FREE, LIFE BEGINS NOOOOW. On the other hand though the way you conduct your social life might totally change for people whose social life was widely based on classmates and school in general. Now for me personally whenever I compile one of my dope ass outfits in the morning I won’t be thinking about how I will school these motherf***ers today (double entendre) or how I will impress my ex in math classes (of course not with my miserable math skills) and guess what, I kind of miss that. Like shit, this is some tradition you know ? Back in first grade when you got (or didn’t) them flashing shoes, made you feel like you had a cop car on your feet (cause that’s what cops are, under your feetACAB) like them original lil ones not the new ones for teenagers cause those are just embarrassing, and you’d be like “Imma walk in that class and show ALL of these guys whose got the most apple juice”. But for real for real ? This is all just something that comes down to the way you conduct your personal life and self essentially. So if you just reach the consciousness of self respect and not doing everything for the omnious “others” then the end of school is just a wonderful chance for you to FINALLY start designing the life you want to have for the next chapter “FULL TIME DRUG DEALING IS ON MA MAN”. You can decide wether or not you want to throw yourself into another commitment like university right away or if you wanna go travel the world, start a blog and become better than Lil Fuego (easy) or me (impossible), kickstart some new hobbies or interests, maybe even start making some serious mullah.

As a final word I wanna get serious and say that most of the stuff you want to do and people wanna give you hassle about, most of that stuff is fairly possible and achievable. Even traveling the world without having rich parents. Research it. The most important thing for you to do if you are taking a year off after skool is GET ORGANIZED. Watch seminars on how to get organized, how to manage money, write down your goals and dreams and learn to manage your time, remember education is not academic education but self education. Gettin an A+ don’t make you educated, it makes you hard working but not educated. If you want success in life or if you are trying to achieve something unusual e.g. your twisted dreams you must be willing to risk shit and go against everyone, get hurt, cry and bleed. So this was the first of a few Big Gelato posts, stay posted and enjoy.

 

Skate park session pt.1

HI

wassup people?

So this week I somehow managed to do like 3 shoots , that means I got content for days. Sadly I won’t be able to post for the next week because I will be in Istanbul, but I will be shooting a lot of film that week so stay tuned for that too. I got a lot of scanned pics from my last 35mm shoots so there will be a post about this too.

Before I show you these pics let me tell you how I got these people to stand infront of the camera.

One day me and Ilaaf was strolling around the streets of Schwabing West and saw Jayson, a dude with an incredible sense of style, walking past us. And we both was like “yo this guy got steez”.Then we went into Pick and weight (a vintage store in Munich) and saw him again there, so we decided that this must be faith and the universe wanted me to shoot with him. Like the random person I am I walked up to him and casually asked him if he woud like me to take a few pictures of him. At first he was a bit surprised and kinda sceptical but then he gave in and had a look at my instagram lol ( I hope I didn’t bother him too much or didn’t come of as too intrusive). A few weeks later we actually linked up and took some pics at a local skatepark. He was there with his friend Joel and we took some pics until it turned dark. While we was there shooting I saw a group of girls chillin that kinda seemed familiar to me, so I walked up to them and asked if they would be okay with me taking some pictures of them. Turns out that these girls also run a blog called trulsblogSometimes the universe works in some crazy ways lol.

Today we had another session at the skatepark  so there will be a part two next week.

I hope you enjoyed this post and the pictures included. Please check out their blog, it’s worth it.

Have a good night.

GUEST WRITING: YOUNG VISIONARY

My name is Alina aka YOUNGVISIONARY
I´m based in Berlin/Germany
I love any kind of creative stuff as long as there´s a vision/passion behind what you do.
I started writing down my own thoughts for a while now
Thoughts became texts 
Now I want to reach people with what I´m doing.
I want to encourage people to speak up their minds, do what they love and pursue their passion.
That´s why I started a movement called YOUNGVISIONARIESYOUTH 

You know the feeling of being misunderstood?

Of being mistreated…
When you just want to say something 
cause the pressure inside you is unstoppable 
Unstoppable enough? 
Doesn’t seem so…
The world, our society made us 
But remember the time 
U didn’t know bout all these things 
Remember the time when you got hope 
And when there was a solution to every problem 
When you saw the light at the end of every tunnel 
You were optimistic 
But now everything seems more difficult or even impossible 
That’s your mind playing tricks on you 
that’s just what they always told you 
Don’t ever let them dim your light
Don’t let yourself be subordinated
Be more than that 
If you feel the pressure to say something
SAY IT 
If you feel the pressure to do something 
DO IT
Don’t let anybody tell you YOU CAN’T 
Cause I know YOU CAN
Be a visionary 
Convince the people with you words 
Enchant them 
Show them things which seem impossible to them 
Show them that they aren’t impossible 
Change their minds 
Make moves and you’ll move something
We all have the opportunity to change something 
Every day is a new chance for every single one of us 
Don’t give up just because someone told u once 
Don’t be afraid, be brave 
Trust me and you’ll have wings and you’ll fly 
YOUNG VISIONARY
You enjoyed this text and want to know who this creative mind behind these motivational lines is?
Go and check out her instagram
Again, thanks for reading and supporting the movement.

YOUNG PICASSOS

wassup

You may already know that RamziKc and I shoot together most of the time and now we got a cool name (thanks to Kc’s creative mind).

There were some nice candids that haven’t been posted on social media yet so I decided to do that now.

These pictures were taken on two different days, the last session was with my super intelligent and super great friend Ilaaf (I hope she starts a blog soon too, you’d be impressed by her content) and Johanna .

On the first sessions our vision kinda failed lol.  We wanted to take pictures of Ramzi laying in the grass with flowers in his hair but this vision failed badly. This set of pictures turned out really funny looking . Ramzi prepare yourself to get these candids on a birthday card this year when you turn 20.

The second session on friday was planned not so well because of me being a bit overwhelmed with school and life rn lol. But we still made it work somehow thanks to Ilaaf’s genius mind.

Anyways I hope you still enjoy these pictures.

Bye for now and thanks for reading.

Spontaneous studio session and an open mic Hip-Hop event on an ordinary thursday, I actually wanted to spend studying

Hi my fellow procastinating people

This time my caption is a bit more creative(?)

Whatever.

So let’s #throwback to last thursday. I actually planned to spend that day studying for my maths exam and doing some other irrelevant school shit. Guess what I did not do that day. Well I tried to mentally prepare myself for my exam, that counts as studying.

After I did the bare minimum of studying Tito called me and told me to roll to the studio because they were recording a Track called “onelittahboy (mit nem one Liter Vittel)” by Akin and that they would be going to an Hip-Hop event later on, so I decided that this was way more interesting than what I had to do.

So I rolled to the studio, listened to the track, took some pictures of Tito’s beat producing and rapping cousin Wegar, because he planned on releasing an EP this year. I asked him and another friend of them, who is also aspiring to become a rapper, some questions about their music and how it all started. But just wait until the time arrives and you will get to know more about this all. Just be patient folks.

As we arrived at the Hip-Hop event there was a bunch of guys already perfoming. Later on I found out that it was a group called DSDNG. They consisted of a guy playing a trumpet, a beatboxer, and two other guys rapping. As I stood there in the crowd and appreciated their rapping skills I casually just shot some offguards of them perfoming and showed it Chab (that’s the guy with the crazy hair). He was very chill, I asked him a few questions about their group. He told me that it all started a few years ago and that the group is consisting of rappers, beatboxers, bboys/girls and a lotta more members. I thought that this was really cool. Chab also performed on RAP AM MITTWOCH once. I hope that there will be a lot more to come from them, they seriously got some skills.

GUEST WRITING: MICHAEL ON HIS CLOTHING AND ACTING CAREER PT.2

Like promised, here comes the second part. Enjoy.

ACTING -/PART 1

My acting career has been a ride so far but I feel like I’ve only really scratched the surface. There are many more experiences to be had. I started acting about four years ago when I applied to be in an acting school which is now shut down. It must be noted that the acting school I decided to go to after being accepted was so much money and I eventually left because it was so much. But before I left I was told about monologue slam which is an acting competition which takes place in east london, which is how I got signed to my current agency. The acting school wasn’t the best way to get into acting but whatever. It’s good to experience. I never “fail”, I just see it as a learning curve, an opportunity to improve and work on myself. I like to carry a positive mindset because I don’t actually know what will happen in the next nanosecond of my life here in this reality. I realize that this is all very temporary and deriving any sort of attachment to it all is futile. I don’t really know how everyone is downloading their recognition of the futility of your own individual existence here on planet earth and the interconnectivity of all consciousness and our oneness, but I personally believe that seeking attachment to anything here is very pointless. Everything is truly honoured and appreciated here in this life because life is beautiful but fundamentally, nothing truly matters to me.

Anyway, I went off topic. In regards to my acting career, I have met so many people and my experiences and direct interactions with those people has humbled me, to realize that there is a lot of talent out there. I got signed to my agency about 2 years ago thanks to a competition called MonologueSlamUK. They basically put me on. The audience was always packed. 400-500 people. I kept applying and auditioning and I got through a couple of times and won a few times. On the fourth time of me performing, my current agency approached the people at MonologueSlamUK and asked for my details. A few months later I went to their headquarters with my mother and I signed with them. The rest is history. I gotta thank MonologueSlamUK though because they really exposed me and gave me the opportunity to do auditions for shows and films. One time I was out with my mother in town and some people from MonologueSlam recognized me lmao. That was crazy af. What are the chances of that happening? Randomly seeing someone who saw you perform at MonologueSlam. It’s not coincidence though everything is connected. I wouldn’t of known about Monologue Slam if it wasn’t for this acting school I used to go to called CTA.

 My Dad took me to the auditions for that acting school but its kind of ironic because now he doesn’t support me in my acting career. There’s one meme which describes my Dad so well lmfao ezgi knows which one I’m talking about. The african Dad one.

I know that there are tons of aspiring actors out in LA and New York for example. Realists will say: “realistically, how do you think that you can compete with such a vast amount of competition? There’s a one in a million chance that you’ll make it” and me being an optimistic and a relativist, I say “everything is connected. Thoughts are magnetic. They have physical power. I always need to remember the laws of the universe and just see everything in a positive light. I believe this is my destiny. I already have it, I just need to actualise it. If it was easy, everyone would do it. I want to leave a legacy. this is what I want to do. The only person that can stop me, is me. I realize that there are other people trying to fulfill a similar perceived destiny but I need not think about those, for they are on their own individual path and relationship with truth. I need to make sure that what I’m doing is the focal point. Anything outside my family, friends, hobbies and my penultimate goal is a complete distraction. It’s cool to have fun along the way while I experiencing this reality but I need to lock back in once that “fun” is over.”

I’m really blessed to have such a good agency who provides me with plenty of auditions so that I can keep practicing and honing in on my craft. Nowadays when I go to auditions, I don’t get nervous because I’m used to the whole process of auditioning now. It’s only a matter of time before I’m on the billboards, cinema and television screens living my dreams.

To finish I would like to say this.

The spiritual journey is very individual, highly personal. It cannot be organized or regulated. It isn’t true that everyone should follow one path. Listen to your own truth. Speak your own truth. Be your own truth.

Life isn’t happening to you, it is responding to you. Thoughts and our perception create our reality. Nothing is determinisitic. Nothing is true. All is mind. All is perceptual. Enjoy the journey. Peace, love, light.

*note – all views expressed are my opinion and how I am perceiving this reality. What I am saying isn’t neccesarily true, as truth is relative.*

BIG ICE AKA BIG GELATO AKA TITO IDRIESS

So I am posting this from school rn because Tito has no talent for time management and could’nt finish this great document in 2 months, but here it is.

 

So here I am: Graduating high school and studying for my finals, running my own business, being part of a Start-up, holding a job and being promoted at it, even making music but there go this little brat Ezgi calling me unproductive.

You want your post? Here we go.

 

Hi, good citizens of the earth. Speaking to you is Big Gelato, more or less the antagonist of this blog but it’s kinda like a Batman-Joker or a Naruto-Madara type of situation, where people just adore me more than Lil Fuego cause essentially I’m taller than Lil Fuego, so if we happen to walk on the same street you CAN actually holla cause you see me. Another advantage I have over Lil Fuego is the fact that I’m capable to upload photos from a digital camera in under 15 minutes and without instructions of the great Tito Idriess. And finally you may or may have not noticed that I can write a blog post after five minutes from waking up, on my phone and have it be among the top texts on lilfuegofromtheblock with essentially no effort. (So if I ran a blog it’d have much more content that this one, do you see what I’m sayin?)

Since a lot of people or essentially the boys I introduced to Ezgi who are/were frequently featured on this blog have no taste in music or even life whatsoever, that’s what I’ll be taking care of. Don’t ask me to review the new YG album, matter of fact don’t ask me to review anything, cause I’ll just be speaking my own mind which is perfectly fine for taking you on a journey through the world of black music’s finest talents, my own perspective on politics, mindsets I have etc. ultimately resulting in you falling in love with me and if you happen to be a cute girl (preferably with green or blue eyes, so I can write poems about you, cause yeah I forgot to mention that I do that too) who knows you might be the one to help me get over my ex?

 

 

(THIS TEXT CONTAINED ELEMENTS OF CYNICISM, EXTREME ARROGANCE, RANTS AND OFFENSIVE LANGUAGE)

Just wanted to add that I speak three languages natively and one on a conversational level which makes me better than Lil Fuego too.

 

Guest writing: Michael on his acting career and clothing pt.1

HI

wassup?

So I once introduced guest writing on my blog, actually I wanted Tito to make the first guest appereance on here but apparently he is being a lazy and unproductive piece of shit ( sorry but dude send me that text). 

Anyways, Michael did a great job writing about his passion and it kinda turned into an essay. He put in a lot of work and effort in writing this, hope you appreciate it like I did.

So here it is :

PART 1-/ CLOTHING

Firstly, the fundamental reason why we all wear clothes is because I believe we eventually became conditioned and brainwashed to believe that wearing clothes is normal, through various information outlets, controlled by corporations, who are controlled by elites and globalists. At the very beginning when we were evolving, we may have worn things to keep us warm and eventually we may have discovered better ways to cover ourselves but I believe that the reason why the idea of clothing is so engrained in our society is because somewhere down the line, people conformed to the idea that clothing was a neccesity and a requirement for living, which is why if you go out on the streets naked today, you’ll get looked at to say the least. At the start when this, as well as many other societal norms have been created by the elites and kept alive by us, the consumers, the 99%, who continue to do as they say and want.

Anyway, since being conditioned and subconsciously programmed to believe that wearing clothes is normal, I have made the most of this immense conditioning through innovation and creativity with the clothes I decide to wear. I pick what I wanna wear just before I got out. I don’t plan anything. I don’t always like to plan. I like to let the present moment flow, manifest naturally and just observe what happens sometimes. I don’t think about what I want to wear too much because I might overthink it. I want the moment to be organic. I want the outcome to be natural when I create an outfit. To me, that’s the beauty of it. the present moment is the only real moment we can experience first hand. From a quantum physical perspective, you could say that the past, present and future are all happening simultaneously but what I mean is that we can only do stuff NOW, like right now.

I get inspired by everything for my clothing ideas. absolutely everything. From the people in my local town to the people at brick lane. I’d say I’m quite open-minded, so I won’t immediately dismiss a certain style I see. I try to think why the person decided to dress that way too. more recently I’ve been more innovative and creative with my fashion. 98% of the time I shop for clothes, it is at the charity/thrift shop or depop. the other 2% is designer shops. I do get designer from charity/thrift shops sometimes though but it’s usually vintage. Ebay is decent too. I like some designer clothes but I don’t really like supreme, palace, bape, stone island, gosha and brands of the sort because I believe there is too much hype surrounding them and people who wear these clothes appear quite judgemental and egocentric to me. I guess this might not be an accurate statement because I have rafs and gosha socks and I’m probably the least egocentric person you’ll come across. But anyway in terms of designer, I like comme des garçons, acne, p+f, raf simons, vetements, champion and that’s about it to be honest. My favourite designer is probably vetements or p+f. I sorta fuck with gosha, mainly because they made a “1984” t-shirt. “1984” is also a book written by George Orwell who I admire a lot. From his literary texts and quotes, he seemed like a very perceptive man. Anyway, a lot of the tops I wear are also oversized because I like oversized clothing. The only time I don’t wear oversized tops is when I go to school, weddings and other events which require me to wear a suit and sometimes when I go to a place which requires me to conform to society in order not embarass others I care about. In england we have to wear school uniform. I go to sixth form which is after year 11. Some sixth forms allow you to wear non-uniform but not mine. I prefer it because this prevents discrimination and allows equality to be established.

Also, I get laughed at & looked at a lot whenever it is non-uniform day at school, purely because my style is alien to the mainstream look. There are those that are myopic, there are those that don’t care and there are those that are open-minded. Our school is a uniform school so we have to wear a uniform on a regular basis. however, on non-uniform day, everyone basically gets to express themselves through clothing & I feel like the judging meter is at it’s maximum on this day. Everyone is looking at everyone else, trying to see how much those shoes were, what shirt that was & what trousers they were. For me, the reason I get laughed at a lot is for many reasons. the first reason is because the society I live is quite myopic to a certain style and their horizons haven’t been broadened enough to realize that people can wear other things, as opposed to nike tns, an adidas t-shirt, or a puma tracksuit. Secondly, I believe they laugh because subconsciously, they are jealous of the amount of freedom I have to be able to express myself however the hell I want. I believe that the more free you are, the happier you are. I believe that subconsciously, they want a taste of that kind of freedom because they know how much happiness that’ll bring them. Those laughing are always the trend followers or hypebeasts, who are just living according to other people’s perception & standards, which to me is absurd. I don’t believe that higher consciousness, God, Buddha, Allah, The Universe, whatever name is on the door for you, wanted us to live by other people’s according. it wants us to live by our own according & be our greatest version, not a version filtered & tainted by the society we are surrounded by.

PART 2 -/CLOTHING

I heavily respect those who can accept my style for what it is because to me they realize that everything is relative to a person’s perception, that there are no absolute truths and that all the rules that we are bound by, even the unofficial rules, are just aspects which have been agreed upon by society. In other words, I feel like the ones who laugh out loud at my dress sense are the ones most controlled and conditioned by the societal constructs surrounding our lives. It’s unfortunate because to me those type of people will continue to live their lives like that and won’t access other levels of freedom and happiness, because they are living by what other people around them deem to be correct or “cool”. Of course I too have to conform to society for the sake of my family (my mother mainly) and friends. for example, at a rwandan traditional event I will act in a certain way which society deems to be right, as I have been taught these aspects by my parents. Or another example; if my friend offers to gives me a lift home from school and his parents are taking us home, I conform to the actions of what society perceives as “normal” and “sane” so to speak, because I don’t want to embarrass my friends or family for living by my own according. That’s selfish in my eyes because I know what kind of effect that could have on them in the long run. So this is how I live. I conform when I feel it is necessary. I don’t care about respect from others I just do it because I’m not selfish.

“Truth is a pathless land. everyone is having their own individual journey and relationship with truth” 

 

This is the first part, the second part is about his acting career and will be up next soon so stay tuned and have a blessed night/day.

Who is Michael?

HI WASSUP

So actually I finished this post like 2 weeks ago but it failed to post lol, great job WordPress. Anyways this post really does come a bit late but I was busy binge watching Brooklyn 99 and Bob’s Burgers and procastinating and telling myself I had no form of schoolwork to do. But here it is. This the post I planned on writing 3 weeks ago. Enjoy it.

Michael is a cool dude living in London who spends his time dressing himself in fresh and extraordinary clothes and striving to become an actor. Never met such an inspiring soul as him, I am really glad we met up and took photos together. He will soon have an appereance on my blog too, because I will publish a text he wrote about his style and passion for acting ( It’s good you should read it).

So we strolled around Shoreditch and Brick Lane (now I get why everybody go there these streets are so artsy and cute) and took some pictures. When we got back to the underground station we met a few other cool dudes and I took some pics of them. I feel like all the people living in London are more spontaneously and open minded than the ones living in Germany. But I’m happy I got to know so much new people I can work with.

There is nothing left to say about this actually ( unbelievable that these few sentences took me so long, wow.). I’d be happy if  you’d just check out his instagram .

Like always thanks for reading and supporting the kiddo, also stay tuned I got a lot planned for the future and a lot of new people to work with, eventually starting an analouge photography series. Just stay tuned and enjoy the journey.

I’m out b

All about London

Hi

wassup?

This post is about my school trip to London last week. Again, I actually planned on writing this earlier and again: I was a lazy piece of shit.

But here it is.

So what happened in London?

On Monday we arrived at the “hotel” and started going around and doing some tourist shit. I had my analogue cam with me and also got myself  3 colored films, but unfortunatley my cam broke and I somehow managed breaking two films. Just don’t ask me how it happened. I really don’t know and I just want to forget about my own stupidness. Anyways besides these lost films I took a lot of other great shots in London that week.

That week I was living of cereal and air lol ( and wraps from tesco). The breakfast consisted of 4 pieces of toast and a muffin. But yeah I ain’t die so I guess it wasn’t that bad. I could have easily spent more money on food and could have treated myself that week with some nice food, but I rather spent all my money in thrift stores and on hair dye. So nearly starving to death was kinda my fault. But this is survival of the fittest, because “Who needs food when you can have three pairs of socks for the price of two.”. And now I can say that I know how to stretch 25 pounds  for three days and not die of starvation while looking fly.

Also we dyed my hair in the hotel room that week. That was really fun but the bed sheets, the floor and the towels ended up being blue (obv I had to take the towel with me because it had stains of blue hair dye on it and I didn’t want the employees to think “wtf?” ). If anyone from the Lord’s Hotel reads this, I am sorry for your towels and bed sheets.

Besides shooting with my friends ( s/o to Anna, Sofija and Felicia) I shooted with Michael on thursday. We went to Shoreditch and took some cool pics there and then we randomly met some cool dudes at the tube station and had a lil shoot there. I have no shame in asking strangers on the streets to shoot and most of the time it’s a great experience and you get to know cool people.

(Anna took some of these pics and they turned out real good so admire her work)

I’ll just share some pics with you to get a glimpse of that trip.

There will be two other posts up the next week so stay tuned and check it out.

Thanks for reading and have a blessed day.

fuego is out.

From the block

HI

before starting with the actual post:

People ask me a lot of questions about the name “lil fuego”. Why did I choose this? What does that mean and is there a story behind that? Yea but this is a topic for another post I planned on writing. And why “from the block”? Atually I got inspired by JLo’s “Jenny from the block” lol. That song is my theme song, my anthem, right after Princess Nokia’s “Tomboy” (exspecially that one line “My lil titties and my fat belly” lmao I love her). Besides that I really am from the block so this is not just an image I am trying to create it’s just me being proud of where I came from and I think everybody should. This is what I’m trying to capture in my pictures, the reality.

 

So this post is about that one sunday session two weeks ago. Why is this post coming so late? Because I’m a lazy piece of shit, that’s why. No seriously. I had like sooo much time but didn’t even bother writing this post lol. But now I will bless you with these pics.

Idk what to tell you about the pictures or the people on them. I’m shooting with the same people always so it doesn’t even matter. Just enjoy the art and the chill moments I tried to capture.

To not let this post end right here imma tell you something about my next post. It will be about my trip to London and what kind of crazy shit happened to me and my friends (with some artsy pictures included). Maybe a guide to thrifting will be published next too (but I won’t post a guide on how to spend money wisely because appaently I can’t manage this either and this is why I almost starved to death lol but more to that in my next post).

PS: Tito if you are reading this send me the text I am waiting don’t disappoint your loyal fans and readers

thanks for reading

have a blessed night everyone

Getting into the model business

Hi

Does anybody remember how I said I will get one of my friends signed in one of my last posts? No? Then go read it.

The time has come now lol, but seriously. The one friend I am talking about is Akin, he was featured in my last posts. Clearly he has the potential that will be needed in this business but there is still a lot to work on. But I (and the rest of us) will help him getting there soon. I can’t stress it enough : always support your friends. Help them to grow and to test their limits by going beyond them.

That day we didn’t only take portraits but some other cool shots, I’ll just put some of these pictures below. The other people may seem familiar to the ones following my blog, if not check out my previous posts and have a look on their intsagram too. Some photos might even have the potential to be featured in my portfolio for that one desgin school I am trying to get into after I finish school. But there will be another post about my portfolio and some good tips on what to pay attention to.

Again, thanks  to everyone for reading my posts and supporting me.

Have a blessed day/ night.
