A new......

Bromance. I really hate that word. It is a stupid stupid made up word. But i don't know what to call it. There are certain dudes that i have an affection for, not in a gay way, but just an admiration for their ability to be awesome at something they are really good at and I am pretty sure if we knew each other in real life we would probably be best friends. If you have ever had this conversation with me you know that I think that this list includes: Andy Roddick, Brandon Flowers, Joseph Gordon-Leavitt, Chris Pratt, and the this new addition: Donald Glover aka the Childish Gambino aka Troy from the show Community. Actor, writer, comedian, and rapper. Its like we were twins separated at birth.....except that I am not any of those things. And he is black, and as much as I tell people that I am probably at least half black, no one believes me. So maybe not separated at birth twins, maybe just best friends who won't meet until heaven where we discovered we were totally best buddies before in heaven. Tangent over.

If you don't know who he is you should watch this show


Where he plays Troy

or listen to his amazing rapping skills. I would describe his skills as Kanye and Kid Cudi having a lovechild that is somehow raised by Lupe Fiasco or with a close family friend being Immortal Technique. His rapper name is Childish Gambino.

or you can listen to his rap. Warning this is explicit, i was too lazy to find an edited version, so if that is not your cup of tea just trust me he is awesome.

or this awesome remix to Rolling in the Deep

And now a friend showed me that he has a blog of his own that I spent the last 2.5 hours reading, and if I ever was to develop a tumbr account it would look exactly the same. I dig everything on it. His random videos, his art, the music, the journal entries, the love of minimalist architecture, the ladies, and the dudes fashion. If I could somehow lose 15 pounds and be able to pull off the clothes he puts on there i totally would. Luckily we both got a love of flannel and cardigans and the guy has a love for canvas shoes and nice dress shoes and cool looking tennis shoes that may even exceed my own. Seriously, all i want for Christmas is a sweet pea coat, a new pair of brown dress shoes, and another bright colored cardigan to add to the collection. Anyways, check it out for yourself and just know that I would have created something just as cool that would look very similar if I could allocate the time to do it and muster up any motivation.
