Wake Up...

Since I have been working on my book.. I have been waking up pretty early ready and inspired for the next day of drawing...I always had a bad sleeping problem... I even went to a doctor for the problem... I started morning jogging..eatting breakfast ... But I think this book is helping my mind the most... Releasing those ideas I've had on my mind on paper is helping me sleep now...a lifestyle change was needed....being able to sleep now feels amazing... Less things on my mind to keep me up at night.

For you peoples whom didn't get yesterdays post.
We will be having a Dj over, Dj Fiësto will be entertaining the in-house crowd all day.
So it might be fun to drop by and check it out.

As for the fact that there aren't any pictures in this post, is because I'm lazy and don't want to get up and walk over to the camera, pick up the camera, carry it all the way back to my chair, take out the flash card, put the pictures on my computer, upload them to the blog and think of something smart or funny to say about them.

Instead of typing that whole story I guess I just could have gotten up and got the camera anyway, ohh well... to late for that.

Better luck tomorrow.

Jets Geht Loss!!


Mit "Ab in den Suden" wurde DJ Fiësto über Nacht zum Star.
Der Hit war 25 (!) Wochen in den Charts, erreichte "Gold"-Status und brachte DJ Fësto eine Nominierung für den deutschen Musikpreis "Echo" ein.

Seitdem landet DJ Fiësto einen Hit nach dem anderen ("Mama Mallorca", "Schneewalzer", "Heute wird gefeiert", "Ich hab Dich schon mal schlanker gesehen").
Jetzt startet DJ Fiësto mit dem Partykracher "ciao ciao mein schnuckelpüppe" in die Winter-Saison 2010.

For you whom don't speak German, YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW!

Ohhh Baby I Like It Raw!

Florencio gave me the most gangsterous tattoo ever today.

It's a portrait of the greatest rapper alive. Well, he's not alive anymore, he went to Miami a couple of years ago, after he was assassinated by the C.I.A.

Rest In Miami Dirt McGirt.
