Quick Art: Friday The 13th, Payday The 15th and Payday the 13th
Today is the 13th of Friday, a date considered to be bad luck in western countries.
Jason Voorhees is there to catch you and slit your throat. hahaha
Things to do this weekend:
1. Buy a new pair of sneakers. I’m still undecided whether to buy a pair of Vans authentic or plimsolls from Topman.
2. Haircut. Maybe, I’ll try to copy Adam Levine or David Beckham’s mohawk hairstyle for a change.
3. Buy a nice fitting jeans, a tank top, a snapback from Obey or The Hundreds
4. Window shopping with girlfriend
5. Take pictures
6. Eat burger and fries at McDonalds
7. Have a good time
We are experiencing another rainy day here in Manila, Philippines. Calling the attention of Thor, Zeus and Raden, the gods of thunder. Here is a special song for the gods of thunder. A clip from the movie Ted featuring Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis and Seth Mcfarlane as Ted.
The Thunder Song
"When you hear the sound of thunder, don’t you get too scared.
Just grab your thunder buddy and say these magic words:
Fuck you thunder, you can suck my dick.
You can’t get me thunder, cause you’re just God’s farts.”
