Views on everything from Lloyd States


Wow, aint life incredible?




I can’t believe that I haven’t put anything on here in almost two years. The really crazy thing about it is how much things have changed. Nizhoni is now almost three and is more awesome than ever! Our family is also doing great, still the three of us and the #1 pooch alive, Meelo aka Trobes aka Trobowitz aka Meelo Lowenstein. 

Things get hard a lot of the time with money and things like that, but my family is incredible. God is incredibly good even though I am so clearly undeserving of his grace. And oh yeah, today is my wedding anniversary! Eight years for Tonya and myself, and I really couldn’t ask for anything more.

Six months old

Tonight I was laying on the couch with Nizhoni and I kissed her left hand. After that she smiled big and touched my cheek with that same hand. She was close to falling asleep and I found myself wishing that I could have the same dreams as her so I could be with her even while sleeping. She’s just the sweetest little girl in the world and I am so blessed to have our little family of three.

The Finer Things in Life

I was all worked up to come on here and start spouting off about how disgusted I am with certain things, and then I see my last post. Over two months ago I posted a picture of our baby girl Nizhoni. Now she’s four month’s old and just getting bigger by the day. I can’t get enough of her; I wish that I could be home all day to hold her and talk to her. She’s the best thing that has happened to us and we’re so blessed to be with her and have the privilege of raising her, being her mommy and daddy.

The Marlboro Boy — Classic!

This is so wrong and yet so funny.


For those that don’t know, Aziz Ansari is the comedian taking America by storm. He is going on a comedy tour this summer and he needs to wake up and realize that the perfect opening act for him is….CHUM NECKLACE! That’s right, Chum Necklace, the greatest comedy/rock band of all time and Aziz Ansari together at the same venue. Aziz needs to take advantage of the opportunity now, because if he waits much longer he’ll need to open for them!  Try not to choke on the excitement, but let’s hope that the AZIZ ANSARI/CHUM NECKLACE tour becomes a reality.

Getting to work on the Beatdown

Right now me and my boy are crackin’ down on Cinema Beatdown. Hopefully we’ll have the podcast rollin’ out in the beginning of summer, but until then check out to see our reviews and thoughts on current entertainment news. Peace out playas!

The Web is Mine!!!

Just dropping by to let everyone know that Lloyd is here to throw it down and represent all day every day. Craig Ferguson is providing my background noise at the moment and at any time Van Morrison could appear and break into a Celtic classic.

Basically I work in the auto insurance industry, don’t really dig it, but am enjoying life with my wife, family and friends. I’ll be on here on a semi-regular basis to drop knowledge and some “REAL TALK” on all ya’ll unsuspecting fools. Keep living the superior life.
