 “This partnership is a big sign of things to come,” says LorenzoTheGawd.

It is absolutely crucial in 2022 to push the envelope in your methods of exposure, to have your brand tied to other brands you resonate with, and to be putting out collaborative content with people or brands whose target market aligns with your own. Also, a little consistency always helps.

At this point, there are three things we really can’t deny about the current era we are living in:

  • Social Media influence is at an all-time high.
  • The fashion industry works in tandem with Hip-Hop culture.
  • Millennials & Gen Z are now the ones defining the culture.

“Our time is now and it’s easier than ever” – LorenzoTheGawd

Nobody gets anywhere completely alone. Yes, it is 100% up to us and us alone to achieve our goals, but whether they were good, bad, stuck around, or gone forever, we all have people on our path that influence our steps. It’s up to us to make sure that good or bad, those experiences skyrocket us into a new level of success and motivation.

One World Peace is a Clothing and Lifestyle Company Founded in 2014 by Marvin Pantaleon. The LA native has taken his brand coast-to-coast by styling in Fashion Week events in both Los Angeles and New York. OWP has had nearly one hundred fashion shows in North America, Europe, and Australia. Marvin personally cuts, sews, and prints many of his clothes and even works on custom projects with creators. His talent and ability to come up with and craft such amazing clothing and reach the continuous success points he has, serves as a beacon of hope for those of us creators who dream of stepping onto bigger and bigger stages in life.

See 12 Productions is a multifaceted production company that specializes in clothing and artwork. Omar Padilla founded See12 Productions in 2020 after being released from a prison sentence of almost 15 years. Once just a gang-banger and drug dealer, he knew he needed to change his life. Omar defied the odds, and now is an inspiration to a lot of people because of what he has gone through, and how he chose to change his life. Originally, all he knew he wanted to turn his life around and build something for his family instead of going back to the same lifestyle. With one thing on his mind, he took his experiences hustling on the corners of East LA and used those skills to start a legal, family business with his son to create something he can be proud and loud about selling. This is inspirational, especially in today’s culture where drug-dealing and gang-banging are so glorified, this serves as a powerful example that you can change your life for the better option, no matter the circumstances.

Marvin and Omar met each other through Instagram in 2021 and realized their mission, talent, and energy were a great match; so eventually, they opened a storefront and started pushing their brands in unison. Presently, See12 Productions and One World Peace have a storefront on 223 West 6th street, DTLA with clothing, shoes, hats, and more available for purchase.

Stop by if you are in the downtown area to meet the owners or get some new streetwear.

MP Presale: Early Access and The Mirror Launch Sequence



The Mirror Protocol (MP) has gained significant attention in the decentralized finance (DeFi) space, generating anticipation for its presale. However, unlike traditional presales that offer discounted token prices, MP adopts a unique approach. This article explores the rationale behind MP’s decision not to have discounted token prices during the presale and the various factors influencing this strategy.

Premium Company Image.

The decision not to offer discounted token prices during the presale aligns with MP’s positioning as a premium company. By maintaining the token price at a consistent level, MP emphasizes the value and quality of its ecosystem. This approach ensures that early participants perceive MP as a reliable and high-caliber project, building trust and attracting long-term supporters rather than short-term speculators.

Avoiding Massive Sell-Offs.

Discounted token prices during presales often attract participants solely interested in taking advantage of the discounted rates and selling off their tokens immediately after listing. This can result in significant price volatility and undermine the stability of the project. MP aims to discourage such early sell-offs and create a sustainable market environment by setting a fair token price during the presale.

MP Launch Sequence.

To manage the presale process effectively, MP implements a launch sequence that includes specific measures:

a) Sell Limit for the First 48 Hours.

During the initial 48 hours of the presale, MP implements a sell limit to regulate the volume of tokens that can be sold. This measure helps prevent any potential market manipulation or excessive token dumping, promoting a more controlled and stable market environment.

b) Presale Dashboard.

MP provides a dedicated presale dashboard where participants can track the progress and status of the presale in real-time. The dashboard offers transparency and enhances the user experience, enabling participants to make informed decisions and monitor the presale’s progression.


The Mirror Protocol’s decision not to offer discounted token prices during the presale reflects its commitment to maintaining a premium company image, avoiding malicious sell-offs, and serving its marketing objectives. By setting a fair token price, The Mirror Protocol attracts long-term supporters who believe in the project’s value and are invested in its success. The implementation of measures such as a sell limit during the initial phase and the provision of a presale dashboard enhances transparency and ensures a controlled presale process. Through this strategic approach, The Mirror Protocol sets the stage for a sustainable and thriving ecosystem in the decentralized finance space.

The Town of Kingstown in ‘Mayor of Kingstown’ Is Home to Seven Prisons — Is It a Real Place?



kingstown michigan

Imagine growing up in a place that is home to seven prisons. You can now picture ‘Mayor of Kingstown,’ but is Kingstown, Michigan real?

L.M. Montgomery, the author of Anne of Green Gables, once said in The Blue Castle, “That’s all the freedom we can hope for — the freedom to choose our prison.” In Kingstown, Mich. where Mayor of Kingstown takes place, you certainly have options in that regard.

In the show, there are seven prisons in the town, a town that needs them to survive. Is Kingstown, Mich. real or is it just another Hollywood fabrication?

Is Kingstown, Mich. real?

While Kingstown, Mich. is a fictional city, it’s actually based on a real town in Ontario, Canada. Taylor Sheridan, who is best known for Yellowstone, is focusing on something different with Mayor of Kingstown. While Yellowstone allows the viewers to drink in the gorgeous Montana mountains, Mayor of Kingstown does the opposite. In Kingstown, the sky is not limitless, but the prison sentences are.

Terry created the show with Hugh Dillon, who grew up in Kingston, Ontario. Kingston is called the prison capital of Canada, and it has certainly earned that title. There are nine prisons in the area, seven of which are located within the city’s municipal boundaries. In September 2013, its most famous prison shuttered its doors forever.

Kingston Penitentiary opened in 1835 and was even once on the receiving end of a touring Charles Dickens. This prison, much like the prisons in Mayor of Kingstown, is most known for the role its inmates played in building the city itself.

It was their job to toil in the nearby limestone quarry, breaking apart rocks that would eventually become buildings. Within its walls, men learned admirable trades such as furniture making.

Before we wax poetic about the prison, it was also an unkind place. In 1847, prisoners were subjected to a slew of cruel punishments, like The Box. The Box looked like a coffin, except it stood upright, as did the prisoner inside of it anywhere from six to nine hours.

The men were also beaten using cat-o’-nine-tails. Having this many prisons in one place really does something to a city, and you see that in Mayor of Kingstown.

Where is ‘Mayor of Kingstown’ filmed?

Believe it or not, Mayor of Kingstown is filmed all over Canada, and of course one of the locations is Kingston. They also shot in Brantford, and if you only learn one thing about this town, let it be that Alexander Graham Bell actually invented the telephone there, not in Boston. In a 1906 speech, he said, “the telephone problem was solved, and it was solved at my father’s home,” which was in Brantford.

You obviously cannot film in Canada without spending at least a little time in Toronto. Hamilton, Ontario was also a setting for the show. It’s most likely due to the fact that the local economy thrives under steel and heavy manufacturing industries, a perfect backdrop for the fictional working-class town of Kingstown, Mich.

The series is also a testament to the versatility of Canada and the ways in which it can lend itself to a project that doesn’t even take place there.

What does ONG mean on TikTok? The story behind the viral trend



ong meaning

Another week, another TikTok phrase…

Since its conception in 2016, TikTok has not only become a go-to destination for creative short-form video content, it’s also become a sort of cultural zeitgeist.

Beyond offering a platform for users to share their life hacks, parenting techniques, funny impressions and more, the social site spews out new phrases and trends like there’s no tomorrow.

From “cheugy” and “the CEO of”, to the recent “Adult Swim” challenge – there’s a plethora of language constantly being added to our everyday vocabulary.

The latest addition? ONG.

Here’s exactly what it means and how it’s being used on TikTok.

So, what does “ONG” stand for and what does it mean?

Nope, people aren’t accidentally misspelling “OMG” (Oh my God). “ONG” actually stands for “On God”.

Essentially, it just means you strongly agree with a statement or sentiment – sort of like “I swear to God”. For example, “Sour Patch Kids are the best sweets ONG.”

It’s usually added at the end of a sentence.

Where did the TikTok phrase come from?

A viral clip of 22-year-old social media star Tana Mongeau talking about YouTuber Bryce Hall recently became a meme.

In the video, Tana was discussing the upcoming Youtube vs TikTok boxing match when she was asked whose side she was on.

She replied saying she thought Bryce would win, commenting: “We team Bryce out here. Even the paparazzi’s team Bryce, on God.”
