Lightbulb!

Ladies and gentleman, J Lee has another great idea. Last night I couldn't even sleep I'm so excited about this one. I don't want to talk about it too much, 'cause I just want to do it. Don't talk about it, be about it. But the whole point of my blogspot is to share my experiences and let others know about the journey.

If this goes through like I think it can, this will be a large step in the right direction for me.

Oh yeah..MARK YOUR CALENDARS. Feb 2nd and 3rd. The unveiling....

It's A Movement

It's a movement people and it's bigger than J Lee. We as people have the power to do great things. Why? Because we, also as people, put too much power into other people's hands. So the question is...with that power, what will you do with it?

You can do great things, bad things, or nothing, but you will do something. I feel that with my God given abilities, one day, I will be able to effect the masses. I will be able to use my 'celebrity' as a tool to effect thousands and thousands of people. Right now, actors such as Don Cheadle and Danny Glover are doing amazing work to help shape the future for our young black youth. I did Fight For Fame, and had a girl e-mail me from the Netherlands and said that I inspired her. And I haven't even really done shit. At one point in time, Michael Jordan was more popular world wide than Mickey Mouse. Now you tell me that's not power. And how many people has he inspired? How many people have hoop dreams to be the next MJ?

It's a movement. Do you know if you're going to be one of those people that sparks a movement? Man...ya'll don't feel me. I'm out....

I ain't got it I ain't got it

Sometimes, you just don't have it in you. I'm feeling kinda sick right now but I gotta keep pressing on. I'm working on a couple of spec scripts right now. Then, as far as writing goes, I'll have 2 features finished, 3 features started, a television show, and 2 spec scripts. And not to mention about 1000000 ideas. Anyway, just something I gotta work on. So my next move is to get these specs finished. Okay, that's it. I ain't got nothing else to talk about. Okay? Okay!

Oh yeah, mark your calendars. Feb 2nd and 3rd. J Lee's 1 man show comes to LA.

Holla at your boy.

The one

I might be the most demanding person I know. I think for me to be in this industry, I'm asking a lot of a woman. I'm asking for someone who is understanding, thoughtful, supportive, patient, and strong. Because I'm not going to lie, I'm a difficult person to be with. I'm busy, strong willed, determined, stubborn, and damn near moody. But I was blessed with someone who will put up with all my flaws and still love me for who I am. My baby girl, Carrie, AKA Booski.

I've said this before, but besides my mom, she is probably the most supportive person in my life. If I ever feel down or feel like I can't do it, she's right there to tell me I can. To tell me that I am a strong black man who will leave a mark on this world. And not only that, but she's got her own goals and aspirations, which I respect. But she's my opposite. My balance. Everyone needs balance in life, and I have that. And when you have that balance, and that person in your life, sometimes you have to let them know that their appreciated and loved. 'Cause if you don't, somebody else will. And I don't want that. lol. So baby girl, I love you, and I'm thankful that you're in my life. And thanks for putting me on to good food, and to enjoy the struggle. Because without struggle, there is no progress.

"She's WON-Der-FULLL"

Holla at your boy.

The Karate Kid

Man, "The Karate Kid" might be one of the best movies EVER. It was just a good movie all around. No big explosions and cool car chases. Just some great dialogue, good music, and some cheesy fights. But the movie was tight.

"Walk on road hmm...walk right side. Safe. Walk left side. Safe. Walk middle, sooner or later you get squished just like grape."

"In karate, you same thing. Either you do karate. Yes. Or you do karate. No. You karate do guess so...squish just like grape"

-Mr. Miyagi

That's deep. Now just in case you missed the important life lesson in these words, I'll break it down for you. You substitute the word 'life' for 'karate' and what do you have? Either you do something 100% or don't do it at all, 'cause doing it halfway doesn't work. Mr. Miyagi taught me that. I want you to either love my films or hate 'em. But I don't want, "it was okay". Because what is 'okay'? Okay is just good enough to forget in a week. LOVE or HATE, you remember that. Think of the last movie you LOVED. The last PERSON you loved. Think of the last person you HATED. Now think of the last person who you kind of dated but don't really remember. You can keep that. I don't want to live in the gray area. I'm trying to do 'Karate YES!" 'cause I ain't trying to get squished like a grape. No sir.
And yes, you can quote me on that. "J Lee is not trying to get squished like a grape"

I'm out, I'm about to watch Daniel son paint the fence.

BONZAI!!!!!

You've Got To Know, That You Know, That You Know

Your path is being set right now. As we speak, you are doing something that you are supposed to be doing in order to get you somewhere that you are supposed to be getting. Think about it. How many people in your life have you met, that turned out to be a best friend, an enemy, or a co-worker, or something. How many times have you encountered somebody from your past and sparked a new relationship. There are many times in my life, where I look back and wonder, had I NOT been in that place at that point in time at that point in my life, would I be the man I am today. Dig this, the only reason I'm writing THIS blog right now, is because I met some dude at a Mazda dealership in Bloomington, IN 2 years ago. Yep. And that meeting had been planned. Destined.

My point is, you've got to have a goal. You've got to have a clear cut thing that you strive towards. When you do, then all of a sudden, your actions and the people you meet, and the places you go, will all ultimately lead to you reaching your goal. You'll find yourself meeting people that can help you. People that will support you. And even people that will knock you down and hate on you, just to make you stronger. But if you don't have a goal. When the doors are opened for you, and you get that chance to meet the people you're supposed to meet, you won't be ready to step through them. And who knows when the next time you'll get that opportunity to meet that person who introduced you to that person who is now your future husband/wife? It may be a hard concept to grasp but I believe it's true.

I'm riding a wave people. I'm riding it until I'm washed on the shore of my destiny and I've got the sand of success all over my face. And I'll turn over and let the sun hit my face and smile. And thank God. And probably cry tears of joy. Because I know that I know that I know...I'm headed for greatness.
