Hello Tumblr, thought I’d check in for a second. 

I’ve just returned from spending some time with a group of Quebecois people, all very generous and lovely and better at English than I am at French. I met them in a park (parc) not far from where I’ve found myself staying, and they were wonderful hosts. 

On my way back, riding a sick cruiser (bike) from the 1970s, I gave the finger to a driver in a Mercedes who took a corner too fast and too wide. He stopped and backed up speedily and got out of his car to yell at me. I don’t know a lick of French so I kept saying “parlez vous anglais?” to be a dick. He kept going on in French, repeatedly thrusting his chest at me like we’re orangutans or something. I kept smirking and saying “parlez vous anglais?” to him to upset him. When he started walking back to his car I said, “Vas te faire encule salope”, which means “fuck you, bitch”. It felt good. I rode away laughing as he walked toward me yelling something. 

I’m glad he decided to not actually throw a punch, because I would have been shit out of luck. I definitely bested him in the asshole department, though, for which I feel very good about myself. 

Anyways, talk to everyone soon. Just wanted to let you all know I almost had the shit kicked out of me. Here’s a picture I took today:

Not bad, eh?

See y’all on the flip side.

PS. Do any of you even realize how many pretty girls ride bikes here? Like, all of them. It’s amazing. So many girls on bikes. Almost too many, if that was possible (it isn’t).

Going away for a little while for a “personal journey” (hopefully that doesn’t make me sound like a white person with dreadlocks). I’ll queue up some photographs, but I don’t know how long I’ll be without access to the Internet, so the queue might run out. 

I’ll be back with a fresh batch of photographs, and perhaps some stories to tell (but probably not because I’m boring), and hopefully a better state of mind and being (ugh, I do sound like a white person with dreadlocks). 

Feel free to put questions in my askhole for me to answer when I return. No question is off limits, feel free to use the “anonymous” feature, all questions answered with full, unbridled honesty. 

See you all on the flip side or whatever.

BREAKING: President Obama authorizes targeted strikes against Israel to protect Palestinians from further genocide. Aid Airdrops underway.

Anonymous asked: are you religious or spiritual???

As my brothers and I reign rebellious, changin’
the courses of time, devils no longer exist
as God Cypher Divine, all minds one no question
Now check it…
Perhaps we can go through Lessons
Or might shot me a pussy protestin’
Comin’ with that lip professin’, you must take
Allah for fool, where’s his Jewel?
Was he usin’ Mathematics as a tool?
Tell me, the struggle is God and I came to build
Shit is so real, inside you distilled
Back in the form of mist
You wishin’ you did the Knowledge before speakin’
Seekin’, where you went wrong
And why would I bring you such physical harm?
