All future Mao Mozi posts will be published at my other blog, Outpost Zazzle. I find that I can be more efficient using Blogger as opposed to wordpress.com. Love platform. I really do. It just isn’t the best fit for what I’m trying to do right now.
Previously published posts will remain here for future reference.
The beauty of doing something you love for a long time, is that you will eventually come up with a plan that helps you finish and streamline your work.
I did this last week, and ended up with around 3000 new products in one of my Zazzle shops.
Then, I had another idea, that made the process of adding multiple products to Quick Create completely painless.
In two weeks, I can use all of the ideas I’ve got written down in my notebook for products, and have a healthy inventory in all of my public zazzle shops.
Now comes the part I loathe: I need to focus a bit more on promo so there will be an increase in sales overtime. Can’t stand building traffic manually. It’s ultra boring. ‘m hoping people who see my products via Zazzle’s marketplace, tweet or email the stuff they like to their friends. word of mouth is awesome. I like making stuff more than I like marketing it.
The slam dunk has been a major staple in the world of basketball for many years. Legends and modern day ballers alike are all connected by the act of jumping high enough to touch the rim for an easy two points. It used to be a great thing. Now it’s lame, and here’s why.
Pretty much anybody who knows how to walk and chew gum knows how to throw it down. I’m not at all impressed by Blade Griffin, or his silly Volleyball spike dunks. It’s just as lame as the traditional dunk everyone else can pull off.
The value in things drop once every Tom, Dick and Harry has access to it. This is true once a car leaves the lot, it’s true when expensive phones get into the hands of people who would rather have the latest tech, than pay their electricity bills, and it’s true with the dunk.
You have grade school kids throwing it down all the time. How am I supposed to watch the NBA dunk contest, and be wowed by the use of props? I could go out and wear clown makeup, while doing a windmill. I don’t want to, but I may as well video tape it, if people are actually interested in such a low rate spectacle.

Check it out:
- Popular rapper, who was the first in the genre to snag a Grammy
- Got his own television sitcom, that ran for 6 seasons.
- Went on to become a successful movie actor, who stared in Men in Black, Bad Boys, Independance Day, etc.
I could be mistaken, but Mr. Smith seems to be a very successful guy. You’ve other rappers try to mimic his career path. LL Cool J had a good tv show. I’d like to see Lupe Fiasco get a cheesy/campy sitcom, where he contantly breaks the forth wall, and points out how crappy the writing is. That would be pretty cool.
What I find interesting about Will Smith is the same thing I find interesting about legendary athletes. The man’s work ethic is obviously something that helped him get to where he is now.
Being the best is something you should aspire for. But going the extra mile, and putting in that much more work than the next man. That is something which is very attainable. Hard work pays off. Hustling to get what you want in life pays off. Go through the pain, experience the feeling of wanting the quit, and push yourself that much more to get through that initial shock.
You’ll become better/stronger for doing so.

Overrated Feats in Sports: Hockey Goals
Hockey is such a great sport.It’s playable outdoors, and indoors. It’s not hindered much by the elements(unseasonable warmth not withstanding.) and best of all, some of the worlds best athletes play it! Goalies, believe it or not, are not that athletic.
