* End of an era (Chase Bank)

Randomly brought me a $15 bike on the way to the bank. Out with the old (Dune Buggy) and in with the new.
Final Thoughts

On Saturday I made a transaction that represented the ending of an era. February of 2004 I opened a business bank account for Motown Maurice Productions, Inc. with WAMU (which has be bought over by Chase Bank since then). Upon moving to LA (September of 2010) I've maintained the account by paying costly services fee's. For the past 2 years and 7 months I've had no real use for the account but the pride and integrity of having an official business account. On Saturday I finally let it go. I closed it out. I can't afford to keep paying services fees anymore. I truly would prefer to keep it but at this point, now that I have bits of income flowing, I need to do my best to keep it steady. Within the next couple months I'm going to officially lose the incorporation status. It was a good run, an era is ending but its far from over. I will reestablish myself in the state of California in the near future.

R.I.P Business Account February 2004-April 2013. Don't worry you will rise again.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. - If You Didn't See Me (Then You Weren't On The Dancefloor)

I remember when people use to tell me that saw me in music videos before I even knew it was out. Have times changed. At the same time I don't think this video airs on television. I do wish the producers told me it was out. Its been posted since April 9th and I just searched and found it. The song is awesome. Check me out in it.

Scene Locations: 0:11, 0:38, 1:14, 1:53, 2:43 & 3:53

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

Thursday, April 11, 2013

Final Thoughts

I don't remember if I mentioned this in my video review but I had to dish out $660.00 to someone that I owed money since The Motown Maurice Show in 2010. Its a long story but I'm thankful the person never once harassed me about the money. Within the past 3 years he solely called to check on me. Thanks Karate Mac. Just a few more people to pay back. I'm truly looking forward to it.
