Random and Weird Phone Shots – Black Pant(her)

What are you wearing today? Chances are, if you work in a standard office:

Obviously, it’s a cinema ticket for Black Panther (which I saw a week ago, but it was too late to post it on that day and dammit, I said Random and Weird Phone Shots are a Thursday thing). See what I have become? This shit post proves I have completely lost it.

Black Panther might be a candidate for the movie of the year and it’s only February. I just want to mention something that occurs, well, something he says at the end, so here is when I say spoiler, if you haven’t seen it and want to–stop reading now.

In the first post-credits scene T’Challa (aka Black Panther) speaks at the United Nations and has this to say–paraphrasing here, so it’s not 100% exact: “Wise man builds bridges, fool builds barriers.”

I am in agreement, Your Highness.

Now, let’s get hyped for Infinity War!

Random and Weird Phone Shots Is Back

Yeah, it’s been a while. Five months since the last RAWPS post–hoo, I didn’t realise it really.

I saw this sign outside the Scribbler shop in Manchester. If you’re not familiar with this retailer, they sell cards, hence the Valentine’s Day thing.

Actually, it’s not that stupid. You should love yourself most of all.

You can also date your own self if you want. Which I’m kinda doing.

Bonus

It’s been 18 months since the first Random and Weird Phone Shot entry so here’s an updated pic. The trainers are still hanging there. They survived many a stormy weather, they’ll probably still be there after the world ends.

But that is a different story altogether.

Random and Weird Phone Shots – Best Friends

This picture is cheesy as hell, but the only reason I took it like this is because I hate having my picture taken, I never have my picture taken–as a matter of fact and I run and hide if I see a camera lens approaching me–and the only part of myself I am willing to photograph are my hands. Hence this.

The kid whose hand is touching mine here (mine is the one with the khaki sleeve) is a boy who is very special to me. I first saw him a day after he was born; he’s nine now and has always been a part of my life and I have always been a part of his. Sadly, he lives in London with his mother, so I only get to meet him when he comes to visit his dad in Manchester. I will continue to refer to him as “nephew” even though that may not be the case in the future. (But that’s a different topic.)

I’ve been deliberating whether to post this picture. Posting would mean I would have to get a but personal and, like I said, it looks cheesy. But then I thought, what the hell, so I posted.

Too much shit is going down in the world today, so remember to spread the love.

How many of you have got the song stuck in your head now?

 

This is how we should resolve conflicts–with music! When rock met rap, or, if you can’t stop a wall being built, do a Steven Tyler and tear a hole in it. That part where he sings through the hole while Run and DMC give him that look is never not funny.

Legends.
