Home Sweet Home – Devonte Smith and Mike James Return From The Great Soul Searching Excursion of 2009!

Hakuna Matata Motherfuckers!

Hakuna Matata Motherfuckers!

Well, well, well, what can I say except, we are back, and truly better than ever.

In the past few weeks, while you guys and gals have sat around pondering what to do without your weekly fix of And This Is My America, Mike James and myself left the fucking country.

When the going gets tough, we get going…

Plain and simple.

Now, I had a few ideas before we left about why we were leaving, but 14 bottles of tequila later I really fucking forgot.

So the trip essentially turned into, The Great Soul Searching Excursion of 2009.

A time for me and Mike to sit back, travel the world, and really think.

We discussed world peace, marijuana decriminalization, politics, sports, and gynecology.

And at the end, I think we emerged better men.

Fast forward through the plane ride back and we are back in New York City.

And back we are…

Impatiently awaiting the arrival of summer, or “Titty Season” as Mike likes to call it.

One thing I have noticed is, since we have been gone not a damn thing has changed.

We’re still broke.

Everyone else is still broke.

We’re still not as young as we used to be.

I still don’t have a job and Mike still hates his.

And the ocean is still a Somalian Pirates playground.

Go fucking figure.

Alright, I’m going to hit the hay for now, but check out these awesome pictures me and Mike took from our trip and stay tuned for more of our usual shenanigans…







Last And Certainly Not Least - South Africa!
