This is me celebrating our concrete canoe floating back to the surface after we failed the first time and had to tape floatation onto it. Our canoe was super heavy and had a crack when we got it out of the uhaul truck. After the first race where we almost sank I almost gave up but we kept going. We did a duct tape patch job that engineers everywhere would love and even kept going after a paddle broke in the 3rd race. Even though all this happened allhamdullilah the competition was a blast and we won spirit of the competition award. Can’t wait to do it again next year and inshallah do it better.

Content Vs. Viewership

davidsocomedyblog:

A little bit about me that I want all of you to understand:

Let me tell you about what I don’t do:

I don’t do pranks for views.
I don’t do fake P.S.A.’s
I don’t do bullshit love stories with fake expectations.
I don’t tell people everything’s gonna be ok.
I don’t get discouraged cause I don’t do what the world wants.
I don’t collaborate with people based on views and exposure.
I don’t sell out my culture or my soul.

Let me tell you what I am:

I am REAL.
I am no better no worse than any of you.
I am an average human being that want’s to create real content that rings true with who I am.

I have never looked at my videos and said, "what can I do to get MORE VIEWS and SUBSCRIBERS?"

Fuck that. I do me, and I do it the best I can.

Let’s clear up a two questions that you guys have been asking on the regular that I should clarify:

1. Why don’t you collaborate with more youtubers?

It’s going to be either a smash of all these answer or just one of them.
- I haven’t/can’t think of a written a part for them.
- I don’t like their content.
- I don’t think they can act.

As I said before, I don’t care about their exposure or what they can do for me viewership wise. That is not what I’m about. Think about it? How many major youtubers have I used in my sketches and videos? Not many right?

Just cause you do well on youtube, doesn’t mean you can do well with my sketches or my writing on my channel and it sure as fuck doesn’t mean you can act. I’m not that great of an actor, but doesn’t mean I want another bad actor on my channel to fuck it up further.

I don’t have kid content, and I don’t work with people who don’t care about the writing or acting behind my channel. Why do you think I’ve used REAL actors vs. popular you-tubers in my sketches? They are hungry and they care about the motive behind these sketches that I write. That skill level is what brings the sketch and piece to another level not views.

You-tuber does not automatically mean that you are someone with real talent. The same goes for me which is why I try to improve myself on the daily.

2. Why don’t you go out and do meet and greets?

I love meeting you guys! I truly do and if you ever see me out in the streets run up and say hi! BUT, I don’t think I’m anybody special. I know a lot of you kids want to do YouTube cause you love attention and spotlight, but I don’t give a shit about that.

I never did comedy because I wanted people to praise me. I did it because I wanted to make people laugh, that’s it. I’m not someone who really loves attention. I love myself but I don’t dig myself. I was never raised to think my shit doesn’t stink and if you meet these youtubers who think they’re the shit, they really aren’t. There’s a reason why 90 percent of you-tubers can’t get into real Hollywood or grab meeting with real executives, and production houses DESPITE their viewership. At the end of the day, THE TALENT AND DRIVE WILL SPEAK FOR ITSELF.

I can’t change and not only do I no want to, I am incapable of it. I can GROW, but I can not change who I am so do not expect it. I say shit that I think and feel whether people agree or disagree, that’s the fucken difference. I have real thoughts and opinions and I always stay true to myself. People create content based on what others want to hear and it’s sad because content like that doesn’t withstand the test of time. Content like that does not move you passed a child audience and to real entertainment.

People get older, wiser, and they can smell shit and garbage from a mile away. Real content creators know how limited you are with your lovely, overused, boring, heard a million times content like:

Black people love WATERMELON!
Asians love BOBA!
How to get an ASIAN GIRL!
Girls are mean on their PERIODS!

People like that disappear and they are forgotten. I’m not trying to be one of them. I live and die by my content and I can sleep well knowing that I’ve stayed true to who I am.

Integrity and art over views and stardom ANY DAY.
