To recap my last post (even though right below this one), I was invited to be a guest lecturer at Yale University for the 13th Annual Black Solidarity Conference on a panel called Politics Press and Propoganda.

Before I left...
I wanted to reflect on a few things in my usual fashion...

(I usually keep the blinds closed until Sunset, but, Sunshine provided for a better ambiance - yeah right?)

so anyway, I left Friday morning, flew all day, and night, and arrived here...

 do my thing on Saturday at the 11:30-1:30 pm panel.
I spoke to a little over 100 people in classroom and basically gave them my idealogy behind the infamous "READ A BOOK" video I directed for B.E.T. last summer.

I opened with some history about the early origins of the song (from, to how it arrived at B.E.T, to how I met Denys Cowan when he was a producer on "The Boondocks", and to how that same relationship paid dividends 2 years later when Denys Cowan and Reginald Hudlin started anew at B.E.T. respectively with Cowan as Vice President of Animation and Hudlin as President of Entertainment. In steps Tyree Dillihay to direct "READ A BOOK" and the nation throws a shit fit.

CNN appearance, couple of newspaper articles, radio, interviews, yada-yada-yada...all to say WHAT?

Basically...i just wanted to say "WAKE UP!!" Just like Slice in School Daze.

So, now that I've got your attention...and the fresh young minds at the Yale Conference...I whooped out my my fresh new film on 'em...
(Directed and Narrated by me/Produced by Six Point Harness/Voices by Jaeden Ball)

After the resounding "awwwwwwwwwww" from the crowd...nothing left to do than to watch my people do the ELECTRIC SLIDE!!

Later that night, the treat of all treats. Who graced the staged but none other than Lupe Fiascoe to rock Yale. At the end, an even more special treat...sorry for the photos...but, that's Lupe in the center with Matthew Santos on his right rockin SUPERSTAR. "Have no feeeeeaaaaaar"

after that, you know that frats and sorros had to battle it out:

Then, it was back to L.A. and back on the grind.

Art to come soon.

Wow, speaking at Yale! I can no longer call you Tyree, I must now call you "THE ESTEEMED MR. DILLIHAY."

Keep rocking on dude, sky is the limit.

Jeez! Yale! Man 'Read a Book' has really touched a lot of people. You must be so proud! You certainly deserve the fame that comes with it. You're work continues to blow my mind.

I like 'Differences.' Very sweet. That's really you narrating? You sound so different!

Can't wait to see new art!

Thanks all.
Yeah, READ A BOOK led me to Yale of all places...and trust...Yale is the LAST place I expected it to take me. I knew it was going to make some noise...but, the small sub-atomic blasts was a curve ball.

One of the things I said to those in attendance at the lecture was:
take every one opportunity and turn it into ten opportunities. I wanted attention as an artist and filmmaker. READ A BOOK provided the perfect vehicle and I whole-heartedly agree with the message. I took the hit and I'm still here...still eatin...still grindin'...

I have plenty of artwork, but, to take a moment to sound like a lot of poor saps in the industry, everything I make these days is not for public consumption and these companies will have my HEAD!!

Kinda like how I'm about to have a company's head for trying to take some of my ish...more on that later.

anywho, everybody, stay productive, get inspired, and keep creatin'!!

In 6 hours, you get the quest done, and are at level 15, as opposed to finishing the quest in 5 hours and still being at level 13. It’s so tempting to go for that mob boss who's three levels above you and finish your quest solo.

Doing quests 3 or more levels higher than you, or an elite quest solo may only take excess time, unless you are in a group, don’t attempt them. If you spend 5 hours trying to do a level 15 quest and you are at level 13, you may get it done. But in those same 5 hours, you could have made level 15 simply by killing stuff 2-3 levels beneath you. And then doing the quest in 1 hour.

术+术:可能是唯一有可能冲上2300的同职业组合,天赋一般选用双恶魔法+贼:控制+爆发型,法师的爆发力略胜术士,不过容错性非常小,游戏相似组合还有法+野D,法+暗牧法+法:双冰法控制,综合来说还不错,续战力也存活能力也很强。双奥法的秒杀流一经提出就被喷的面目全非,我本人其实尝试过这个组合,可惜装备只有S2,法伤最多也只能撑到102X(现在能高不少),魔兽队友情况也差不多。这样的组合容错性低的离谱,虽然有10000+HP 400+韧性,但是感觉一被打就瞬间死,而且跑还跑不掉,所以这个打法还是更适合高端副本装,反正一样死很快。组合上还是克死战士队,别和我提盾反,网络游戏那么明显的动画效果能吸到个火冲不错了。网游基本上能够硬顶过我们5秒的职业只有骑士,冰法,盗贼和恶魔SS了。打盗贼队伍,如果是盗贼+看的见,一律先把看的见的OOXX了,双盗贼很难打,2斗篷我们免费网络游戏直接去一人。最后被一个队恶魔SS+骑士卡住了,因为奥法的后续爆发几乎没有,开局秒恶魔SS和骑士都不成功。感觉装备足够猛的话,2000是没问题的,2000以后看能否连好沉默来秒SS了。法伤最好是NOBUFF 1200+以上,最新网游保证秒杀的成功率,可以不用考虑血和韧性,建议装备牛B的法师们平时娱乐使用,非常畅快的战斗贼+暗牧:爆发力非常强的组合,而且他们的视频里很不厚道的最新免费网络游戏吃了金童3场贼+野D:第一赛季闷+盲+消失补闷+飓风的完美控制秒杀型队伍,不过在徽章能解所有控制技能之后容错性大大降低了。
