WTF Moment: George Bush x Haiti.

So yeah, former Presidents Bill Clinton and George Bush visited the people of Haiti this past Tuesday.

Well, YOUR former President, the dumb one, goes in to shake the hands of Haitians, and wipes his hand on Clinton's shirt!

Peep that right hand:

Now, I won't lie, when I first saw it, I laughed. Not because it's funny, but because he has to be like the dumbest public figure ever.

Like, sir, do you NOT realize that you are in the public eye and cameras are rolling every minute? How ignorant can you be?! Like I said, that's YOUR former Prez, I can't claim that one.

The Spill: ANS x SXSW.

I can't even begin to describe the amount of fun I had down in ATX. You can't say that you have such a love for music [film and/or interactive] and NOT hit up SXSW.

I've always wanted to go and feel so blessed that I was able to experience it. These photos don't even show the half.

Check out my extremely dope time at South by Southwest 2010 in Austin, TX.

Shouts out to everyone I shared these moments with. MUAH!
