About Me

United States
WRITER. ARTIST. THINKER. INVOLUNTARY RECLUSE. I work under my own name, Marque Terrynamahr Strickland, or my pen name, Wrinklegus PoisonTongue. I absolutely ADORE artistically brilliant people. I surround myself with them, as it is with them that I feel most comfortable. I owe everything to artistic people, for without you, I would be nothing. Be you a writer, painter, actor, musician, architect, or whatever, I thrive upon your efforts. You are the air I breath. My solace. My stronghold. My safety net. My sanity. My reason for living. I love you all. Childish. Creative. High maintenance. Sensitive. Insensitive. Insecure. Quick tempered. Loving. Loyal. Lustful. Incredibly horny (especially after 3 decades of involuntary celibacy). Mischievous. Bombastic. Slightly domineering, yet fair and easy to please. Talented to no end. Know-it-all. Chaste. Afraid of germs. Healthy. Insightful. Artist. Born on St. Patrick's Day, I am a PISCES with VIRGO rising, two signs of opposition, which complete me. By the Chinese Zodiac, I'm a DRAGON with ROOSTER rising. —The ‘f-bomb’ is my favourite swear word.

OMG! This is why I so seldom hang out with certain folks!

Jeezus, these people are something else! Just because I'm a good guy and single does not give you the right to try to offer me up to every single female that you're acquainted with! With my very first girlfriend, 5 years ago (yes, I'm a later bloomer), I learned... A REAL MAN DOES NOT TOY WITH THE EMOTIONS OF A SINGLE MOTHER! IF YOU HAVE HAVE NO INTENTION OF STICKING AROUND, DON'T EVEN ASK HER OUT! (I ended up making a real mess of that relationship.)

I know quite a few things about single mothers now, especially after having been raised by one. The most important thing is this: a good, single mother dates men very sparingly. So, if you even make it to the 3rd date, that means that she's looking at you as "long term" material! This is why you must be wary. If this isn't something that you want, STAY AWAY FROM HER. Real men, in my opinion, do not take advantage of something so precious. A good mother is a rarity these days (a mother that is actually raising her child and not club-hopping every night, simply because she's upset that she missed out on her youth from having a baby too soon), so don't lead them on! If you have no interest, let them know that...right up front.

Jeezus, I'm so pissed off.

And the thing is, the girl actually digs me. You all should have seen her...too cute. Good mom. Intelligent. Hard working. ...But even still, I have no interest in a future with her, and I'm not someone who believes in wasting my time or that of anyone else. That's why I didn't ask her out or leave with a phone number (and she was so hoping that I would! A woman will always make it clear when she's interested, sending every signal imaginable in your direction. That's why when I made it known that I was about to leave, she instantly struck up a conversation with me, asking about my interests and work. I kept trying to creep outta there, but every time I took a step backward, she asked another question. Bless her heart, she was adorable).
My work and my future are both VERY important to me, and I'm, plain and simply, not willing to give my time to a woman yet. In fact, just to be real...I don't even plan on living in America for the rest of my life. So why would I be stupid or selfish enough to ask this girl out, knowing damn good and well that it absolutely, positively cannot work out?
I swear, sometimes, it seems that I'm the only man on the face of the planet with a conscience.

My new character, Akiba! Created using "DEMON'S SOULS"

Normally, I'm a traditional tools type of guy (paintbrush/pencils/acrylic paint, etc...), but I just couldn't resist playing around with the character design of my game, "DEMON'S SOULS" (which, by the way, is one of the greatest things I've ever played. It's GENIUS, I kid you not!)

Anyways, this is a character from one of my stories. Her name will give you a hint at some of her abilities. FUN! FUN! FUN!

Nas cut them up! Every word is TRUE!

(This is a classic verbal ass whipping! ...Sounds like something I would write. Lol.)

Nas's Open Letter To L.A. Reid: 'I'M NOBODY'S SLAVE, PUT MY SHIT OUT!'

From: Nas
To: LA Reid, Steve Bartels, Steve Gawley, Michael Seltzer, Joseph Borrino, Chris Hicks
Subject: PUT MY SH*T OUT!
Peace to all,
With all do respect to you all, Nas is NOBODY’s slave. This is not the 1800′s, respect me and I will respect you.
I won’t even tap dance around in an email, I will get right into it. People connect to the Artist @ the end of the day, they don’t connect with the executives. Honestly, nobody even cares what label puts out a great record, they care about who recorded it. Yet time and time again its the executives who always stand in the way of a creative artist’s dream and aspirations. You don’t help draw the truth from my deepest and most inner soul, you don’t even do a great job @ selling it. The #1 problem with DEF JAM is pretty simple and obvious, the executives think they are the stars. You aren’t…. not even close. As a matter of fact, you wish you were, but it didn’t work out so you took a desk job. To the consumer, I COME FIRST. Stop trying to deprive them! I have a fan base that dies for my music and a RAP label that doesn’t understand RAP. Pretty fucked up situation
This isn’t the 90′s though. Beefing with record labels is so 15 years ago. @ this point I just need you all to be very clear where I stand and how I feel about “my label.” I could go on twitter or hot 97 tomorrow and get 100,000 protesters @ your building but I choose to walk my own path my own way because since day one I have been my own man. I did business with Tommy Mottola and Donnie Einer, two of the most psycho dudes this business ever created. I worked well with them for one major reason……. they believed in me. The didn’t give a f**k about what any radio station or magazine said….those dudes had me.
Lost Tapes is a movement and a very important set up piece for my career as it stands. I started this over 5 years ago @ Columbia and nobody knew what it was or what it did but the label put it out as an LP and the fans went crazy for it and I single handlely built a new brand of rap albums. It’s smart and after 5 years it’s still a head of the game. This feels great and you not feeling what I’m feeling is disturbing. Don’t get in the way of my creativity. We are aligned with the stars here, this is a movement. There is a thing called KARMA that comes to haunt you when you tamper with the aligning stars. WE ARE GIVING THE PEOPLE EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANT. Stop throwing dog s**ton a MAGICAL moment.
You don’t get another Nas recording that doesn’t count against my deal….PERIOD! Keep your bulls**t $200,000.00 fund. Open the REAL budget. This is a New York pioneers ALBUM, there ain’t many of us. I am ready to drop in the 4th quarter. You don’t even have s**tcoming out! Stop being your own worst enemy. Let’s get money!

New Goldilocks Planet, guys! Woohoo!

I have to say I'm pretty freakin' stoked about this new planet! We need more discoveries like this, because our planet is becoming vastly overpopulated (who knows, it may be already!). We will HAVE to colonize somewhere else eventually. It's the only way we'll survive!
