ahh that's where you went out to last night (you looked muy bonita applebalm btw) so you enjoyed the show?
lol thank you.
I did enjoy it. I hated waiting in murder alley between HOB and Corner Alley though. I know that there’s tons of restaurants and stuff there but I still feel like I could be offed by Jack the Ripper there.
Last night, I went to see Childish Gambino at the House of Blues Cleveland. If you’ve been following me for a while, then you should know that I love Donald Glover. He’s been on my radar for since his Derrick Comedy Days. This was his first show in Cleveland so of course I had to be there.
The opening act was Danny Brown. I’d never listened to his music before but for some reason I enjoyed his set. Maybe because prior to it, I downed an apple martini and was almost instantly drunk. He started out with a song that began “she rubbin’ on dem titties” which made me laugh my fucking head off. He referenced his dick a lot. A LOT. Which made me deduce that it’s probably not that impressive. I don’t know how my brain landed there but that’s were it went. His delivery was okay and he interacted with the crowd though no one knew his songs. He was rather ridiculous from his appearance to his lyrics but he was just ratchet enough for me to like him. He performed for about thirty minutes then it was time for Donald.
Like I said before, I’d been waiting a while for him to come to Cleveland so I was super hype (and still kind of drunk) when he took the stage. He opened with Outside and had pretty cool visuals on a screen behind him (mostly wooded areas and sunrises and other Camp related images). He also had strobe lights that he used throughout the show which made me kinda glad my cousin who has seizures wasn’t able to make it. He performed songs from Camp along with most of Culdesac. Including So Fly which lead into Do Ya Like. If you follow me on Twitter (if you don’t, you should) then you probably know Do Ya Like is my shit. I think the following gif best sums up me while he performed that song:
Okay, so I wasn’t exactly vagina voguing like Ms. Fenty but I was definitely doing this:
Donald is a pretty good performer. He has this energy that makes for an exciting and fun show. And even though plans fell through and I had to go by myself, I had a blast. While the overall show was great there were a few aspects that didn’t really sit well with me. Once again, I was in the minority (it happens a lot with the type of music I enjoy). The crowd was a good 85-90% white and all of the “nigga”-laden lines it made for a side-eye spectacular. Which made me exceptionally uncomfortable during Bonfire where there’s the “gotta brand new whip for these niggas like slavery” line pops up. That uncomfortableness was expanded upon in the segway to his ode to Asian girls You See Me. The song itself makes me make this face whenever I listen to it and last night was no exception:
Before he performed it he did a roll call of sorts of all the ladies in the building. He started by asking how many black girls were in the building and…it was nearly quiet. I made noise (shit bitch I’m black and I’m proud) but there were only about 20 of us in a sold out crowd. He then asked if there were an Indian girls and it was silent. He made a quip and moved on to asking about White girls to which he commented “Cleveland definitely has no shortage of White girls” or something to that effect. He then asked about Asian girls and dedicated the song to them. If you’ve ever listened to You See Me, then you’d know why the song is so side-eye worthy. Mainly because it fetishizes Asian women which is not cool, bro. At all.
I’m aware that he has other problematic songs. I know. I know.
But anyway, he did a few freestyles including one to Rack City. He also performed Lights Turned On which is a song I really like. Overall, I really enjoyed myself and will probably see him again in the future.

Psychologists have long speculated about whether birth order influences personality. Research indicates that there are generalities that seem to be true in many families. The findings are based on a family of three, but can be adapted for other combinations, too. In summary:
1. First born children (only children, or children born after a long gap) tend to be independent, stubborn, strong-willed, driven, success oriented, efficient, organized and perfectionists. They make excellent leaders, politicians, entrepreneurs and managers. On the negative side, they tend to more anxious; have unrealistically high standards and expectations; be over achievers; and can be highly discouraged by perceived failures. Famous first born children include: Bill Cosby; Hillary Rodham Clinton; Oprah Winfrey; Winston Churchill; presidents Bush (George W.), Johnson, Carter and Truman; Saddam Hussein; Joseph Stalin; Mussolini; Sylvester Stallone, Sean Connery, Roger Moore and Timothy Dalton.
2. Second born children tend to be in competition with/ or to feel inadequate in comparison to their older sibling. As a general rule of thumb, middle children are often more problematic and rebellious than their siblings – either because they want to be seen separately from their older sibling or because they would like some of the attention that has now been diverted to their younger sibling(s). However, they also tend to be creative, witty, self-sufficient, adaptable, flexible, have lots of good friendships, and are comfortable in a variety of social situations. Famous second born children include: George Washington; Richard Nixon; Jack Kennedy; George Bush; Damon Hill; Cindy Crawford; Bill Gates; Madonna; Princess Diana; Jamie Lee Curtis and Brittney Spears.
3. Last born children are showered with attention, and are raise by parents who are more laid back than they were with their other children. They tend to be daring, less responsible, even tempered, creative, warm, affectionate, charming, relaxed and happy-go-lucky. Because they have often been over indulged, they can be manipulative in relationships, and expect the world to revolve around them. Many lack the desire to become independent and, usually, they’re not driven or competitive. Famous last born children include: Margaret Thatcher; George Michael; Sir Laurence Olivier; Eddie Murphy; Jim Carrey; Halle Berry and Cameron Diaz.
Seriously. The OP seems to know me and my oldest childness.
“Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.”—Susan Cain, Quiet (via sixteen-sixty-six)
