2014 Year in Review by Cocaineiagua
This year had hella lessons bout shit that don’t matter and shit that did.
Shoutout to going to my first bar this year losing my debit card and too scared to go back and get it cause it don’t match the info on the ID I used to get in. Wait shoutout to getting the fakest ID in all of McArthur Park, yo I only went there cause all my uncles got their fake green cards there in like 2001.
I probably have been less eager to take photos this year, enough to the point where I got to notice it. Also partly cause I’ve been witnessing some wild stunts to the point where the mental photo I kept was sufficient. Nick has asked me various times to get some shit together for nighted but I just recently let go… Like honestly let go of the idea that one day I might be a rapper. This is really me writing with a dead dream of “killin it” one day. Hopefully in the next life.
Work be eating my brain, please remember fam Art is life. It’s always around you and it’s a key to social discovery and progression. 2014 contained lots of friend vibes this year got to link w hella people Seattle, Santa Cruz, NY and back then getting to show LA to some homies from NY and Miami it was really lit and I fuck with them on all levels hope to see you soon friends. Shout out to people in general. Ily 2015 is around the corner I will be there, no pun intended.
NIGHTED Life Presents: Cocaineiagua
What does Cocaineiagua mean?
A friend of mine was really stoned and like was coming up with weird names Pan I agua is a common food to her or something, she’s Hispanic I had just done hella coke recently that weekend and uh she named me Cocaineiagua.
Ah word.. Yeah I I always pictured someone whose diet was just cocaine and water.
I guess you could say all of 2013 was like that.
So you just got off work? What’s your dayjob?
I work at a law firm bro. It’s so tight I always pictured myself doing office work growing up.
Whoah Cocaineiagua works at a law firm that’s cutty.
Yeah office life is chill tbh I fuck with it.
Have u considered going to school?
I’m actually in art school right now.
Oh tight what for?
Wow interesting.. NIGHTED should prob do more advertising or something.
Aye that’s all me, just give me 3 years.
So why do u shoot film? What got you interested?
It would probably be seeing a bunch of Dean’s stuff a couple years ago, I’d always been into photography and all but not like film now.
Yeeee s/o Deanskii! What’s ur favorite Drake song?
Hahah wow.. Question of the year. Started From the Bottom.
What’s your approach to taking photos? You have range but your shit is also very specific to your style.
I try to take eye level pics, make you feel like your there. Whatever catches my eye takes over, it sorta became an instinct.
You always keep your camera with you?
How important is the camera itself to you?
Not too much, but once a picture of mine is on a roll it becomes my daughter.
Whose shit are you following/ hyped on right now?
Damn this dude Neil Aline, I think from NY. Shoots a little more conceptual photography but sometimes I’m like “where the fuck was this dude”.. Which is what I try to do in some of my shots.
What’s important to you?
Wow that’s the realest.
Shouldn’t everybody’s priority be the same?
We are both libras right?
Someone was telling me that libras value their individuality way more than others and that they want other people to recognize that, like it’s important.
I feel like each and everyone of us has a brand- ha, nah mark Ecko said that but.. It’s definitely true.
So lets do that thing where u have to choose one of two options- Lose the ability to love or lose the ability to fuck?
Damn, breaking me down. Ok I’d rather be able to say I love you and mean it. As corny as that sounds.
Love is worldwide man I hope everybody feeling it.
Ok would u rather: Never go on the internet again or never be able to take another photo?
I know I’m having an anxiety attack thinking about it
My friend Chris said “the internet is useless” to me last year. So I’ll take his word for it.
Wow. What about your personal brand?
That won’t change at all, I’d just keep all my photos to myself. I’d be like Doom, no phone no internet.
Really MF Doom doesn’t have a phone?
I heard you have to know someone he knows to get in contact with him. Thought that was kinda tight.
Wow rethinking my personal brand.. S/O the internet tho amirite
Damn I heard you’re hella young. Confirm or deny?
You think you’ll ever get married and/ or have kids?
Yeah, not soon though.
Married to the game?
Are you with anyone or should we post your okcupid screen name with this interview?
Currently taken/off market/ busy /doing homework /twitter /Draking.
I was thinking today we should do an old school cut ‘n paste zine, B&W.
This why I fuck with Nighted.
Your photos and hand cut tweets..
Macaroni time. Let’s do it.
Any last words? Shout outs?
The other day, school asked my brother if he enjoys starting projects or finishing them. The kid is 12, I thought was a little intense for a kid. But I hope everybody out there is out to finish shit and moving towards a vision and a bigger picture… Peace & Love.
