March 13, 20150 Comments

 

We are now in week 3 of Ghetto Vocab now. It’s officially a thing.

I can tell you this: there are a lot of words left that we need to define. So if you have any suggestions that you would like to see featured, please do not hesitate to leave a comment down below.

We shoot two episodes at a time when we film these things. I know what’s in store. All I can say is…prepare for greatness.

Which words should be in the next episode?

VIDEO: Not About That Life 14

March 9, 20159 Comments

 

I’m not gonna lie, I feel like I’m starting to repeat myself a little bit in Not About That Life. To be fair, it has been fourteen episodes. I know for sure I repeated myself when talking about taking a picture with a baby, but that’s only because I wanted to have a full online dating segment.

The way I make these videos is I have a list on my phone. Anytime something foolish occurs, I write it down on my list. Sometimes I don’t use everything on the list, but then I think I did use it because it was on the list in the first place.

The point is, the list has been erased and re-started.

VIDEO: Ghetto Vocab – Bae, On Fleek, Bye Felicia

March 2, 20152 Comments

 

I’ve decided Ghetto Vocab will now be a weekly series. From now on, I’m switching to two videos every week, with Ghetto Vocab airing every Wednesday.  It’s about to get real.

This episode took way too long to edit, primarily because I noticed a dead pixel in the footage. I decided it would be a great idea to attempt to remove this in post-production. It took longer than anticipated AND at the conclusion, I noticed another dead pixel -_____-

Oh well.

Side note: I’m still getting used to sitting down and doing videos…it’s a little weird since I standup in almost EVERY other video I do. Baby steps.

Which words should be in the next episode?

VIDEO: Ghetto Vocab – Yolo, Yeet, Thot

So Ghetto Vocab has been an idea I’ve had for well over a year now. I randomly decided to make it this week. I like the idea of having a series like this because it takes the stress off me being so creative. I can share the load with my friends, most of whom are from my acting class.

Definitely let me know what you think of the new series. The goal is to put out one per week in addition to another original video like Not About That Life or a Top 100. We’ll see what happens.

I’m serious about this series though. I even bought the domain GhettoVocab.com so you know it’s real.

VIDEO: Top 100 Things Not to Say During a Job Interview

January 22, 201520 Comments

 

Let me start this off by saying, this is my favorite video I’ve ever made, replacing Top 100 Things Not to Say to a Cop. Coincidentally, it was also the video that took the longest to edit. Probably because I decided to alter my outro…in addition to shooting a lot of coverage.

As far as logistics, I shot this video at Purple Rock Scissors, a digital agency that a couple of my friends work at, using some friends from my acting class. It did feel a little weird saying some of these lines, however, if you knew some of the things that went on during our acting class, this was nothing in comparison.

If I learned anything through this experience, it’s that filmmaking is truly about relationships and connections. This video alone is a testament to that. Having a solid location and actors does wonders for a video.

Let me know which number you thought was the funniest! And what Top 100 video should I make next?

UPDATE: This video was featured on RightThisMinute, head over to the press page to watch it!

VIDEO: Not About That Life 13

New year, new me baby.

My New Year’s resolutions for this year? Make a video every single week. Also, go to church every single week.

I have other goals as well, but I figure if I do those two things, everything else will fall into order.

So far I was late for both, but in the mighty words of a great Greek philosopher “Better late than never, but never late is better”…jk that was Drake.

On a serious note though, I fully intend to make at least 51 more videos, preferably on time. So in the meantime sit back and enjoy Not About That Life 13!

What are your New Year’s Resolutions?

VIDEO: Not About That Life 12

October 19, 20140 Comments

 

In the latest installment of Not About That Life, I talk about relationship goals, eyebrow goals, and the advent of new words including fleek, thot, as well as the oh so popular yeet. If you’re confused as to what these terms mean, you’re not the only one. My spellcheck was also thoroughly bewildered.

On a side note, if you’re wondering why my posts have been sporadic yet again, it’s because I’ve been in London and Istanbul for the past week! Don’t worry though, you’ll learn more about that in an upcoming video!

Are your eyebrows on fleek doe? Do you have any idea what I’m talking about right now?

VIDEO: Not About That Life 11

Not About That Life is back and realer than ever. In this installment, I address issues ranging from topless men playing basketball to domestic abuse.

For those wanting more insight on my feelings in the video, let me just say A) There is a dude who always takes his shirt at the gym off B) I am always guarding him. There was no hyperbole in that statement.

As far as my stance on the domestic abuse issue with Ray Rice, the video was shocking, egregious, and disgusting. However, I still do not agree with people who say “A man should never hit a woman.”

Let me be clear, I have never hit a woman and was raised to never do so. I just feel the phrase cheapens the actions of women who abuse men, as well as puts guys into ethical dilemma when defending themselves.

Domestic abuse is not ok regardless of sex. Assault is not ok regardless of sex.  

This is not at all the situation in Ray Rice’s case, however, the sentiment has been echoed throughout social media and I wanted to put my two cents out there.

What do you think of the whole situation?

I’m back.

I know, I know. You’re wondering what DAHECK I’ve been up to? I promise all questions will be answered in due time, but in the meanwhile you can look forward to new videos EVERY SUNDAY. I know I’ve said this before and don’t want to be the Scoot-that-cried-wolf, but I’m dead serious this time.

In this episode of Talking to Myself, Da’Quann and Scootera share a secret as Lay-Lay struggles to understand the meaning of the friend zone. Have you ever been friendzoned?
