it confuses me, how do you manage to get pictures of YOURSELF? Are you taking along a camera man, or what?

dood, dont be fronting 66.

I'm not gonna lie but your pictures are hurting my eyes. Maybe because they are a little out of focus or maybe because there was an open bar last night and I've been on a plane all day.

Any way as long as your having fun it's all good.
