One of my fav functions of Siri is setting reminders throughout the day.
I set the most productive and relentless reminders daily. Keeps me on my toes and keeps my businesses growing. I also set the most hilariously inappropriate reminders too. Because life's too crazed & busy to take it all too serious. Thank you Siri.
Reposting my tattoo artist @nikkohurtado's insightful & grateful words below. I'd been searching for a few years now to find the right artist. Someone who could help create the image that reflects not the man I once was, but the man I am today. I'm a gut and instincts kinda guy and the second I saw Nikko's work (thank you Matt) I knew he was the one. The mana (spirit) is strong with him. Still have some work to do, so bring on the pain 🏾. #EvolutionOfTheBull #Repost@nikkohurtado ・・・
Through this experience I've learned a lot. Everyone always sees what is on the outside what is shown of our lives no one truly knows behind the scenes. @therock is a true gentleman how I came to tattoo him I do not know. I am a truly blessed human. (Thank you Matt) the process of tattooing a client starts with a meeting always finding out what it is they want. Tattoos are markings on the body that are with you for ever. Imagine choosing a birthmark. The tattoo has to represent you, who you are and what you feel, your image and your personality. @therock and I spend time going back and fourth showing him different ideas, different horns different mana. I always want to do what I want to do but I always have to remind myself that when I tattoo a client it is for them and theirs to wear the rest of their lives. I am excited to tweak and build this tattoo a little further after it heals. When I complete a tattoo in one sitting it is never finished my clients all know this to well. I let the tattoo heal, live, age a little before I come back to it and layer it see what it needs to give it the sculpting or life it requires to be abandoned because we all know art is never finished it is simply abandoned. I am grateful I am blessed I have been given the new gift of knowing about "Mana" thank you world your are nothing short of amazing. Thank you @therock till next time same channel same page! It's your friendly neighborhood tattoo artist.
Teamwork. #1 🏾 As social media continues to impact bottom line$, it's fun (and challenging) to stay ahead of and drive market trends.
It's also fascinating to us as a company to see how other major companies dissect my social footprint and articulate to their employees on "why" I'm successful. They always miss the mark on the key thing that drives my relationship with the people.
Thank you fans worldwide for being awesome. Waffles and tequila on me! 🏾♂️ DJ @sevenbucksprod@sevenbucksds
Officially kicking off DAY 1 of shooting our action thriller #SKYSCRAPER.
To my right, our director/writer @RawsonThurber. To my left, the real star of our movie, legendary cinematographer and Oscar winner, #RobertElswit.
From ROGUE NATION and GHOST PROTOCOL to MICHAEL CLAYTON to THE TOWN and to his Oscar win for one of my favorite films, THERE WILL BE BLOOD.
Robert's on the Mt. Rushmore of Cinematographers and I'm grateful and inspired to work with this legendary bad ass.
What a dream team and crew I'm honored to create and drop sweat with.
Day 1 and takin' it to new heights. Literally. #TallestBuildingInTheWorld#SKYSCRAPER#Day1#ThurberJohnsonElswit
And just like that my baby girl @simonegjohnson turns 16. 🏾
Feels like just yesterday I held her tiny body in my hands the day she was born as I whispered "I'm gonna love and take care of you for the rest of my life". She of course cried, which in newborn lingo translates to, "you're the best damn daddy on the planet". True story.
Happy Birthday honey! I'm so proud of the awesome young woman you've become. Keep your eyes on that prize, keep working hard and I got your back every step of the way. Now go have fun! #FatherDaughterBond#OurSnapPhilosophy 🏾🏾
TONIGHT on @HBO. "Ball out" is a lifestyle that reflects our culture & streets. It's also a metaphor for a much bigger thing. Because a true baller believes they can do anything. And they're right.. they can.
So can you.
And I need waffles. #Ballers 10pm on @HBO
Evolution of the bull. Blood, sweat & years.
After 3 sessions and 22hrs of tattooing with world renowned @NikkoHurtado, the story's almost done.. Every detail is a reflection of my own personal history.
From the cracks and heavy damage in the bone representing life's hard lessons I've learned over the years. Just like scars and wrinkles - I'm so grateful to have 'em because they're earned.
To the horns, not pointing up or out to the side, but pointing straight ahead representing relentless energy and forward progress.
The core and anchor of this image is in the eye. Look closely and you'll find the life, energy, power and you'll feel the MANA (spirit). The eye tells the story of a disruptive positive energy always ready to dent the universe.
Depending on the light and angle, sometimes the energy's subtle and sometimes it's glaring. But it's always alive and ready to disrupt the universe and love and protect my family and all things I love with intense passion and gratitude.
Cheers to living, learning, evolving and growing. And to the positive disrupters ready to dent the universe. #EvolutionOfTheBull#TheDisrupter#TheMana #NowLetsBreakOutTheTequila
Just me and Siri out in these streets speaking fluent Mandarin to the world.
This big fun spot airs in movie theaters all over CHINA.
I basically said, "Please put your phones on silent while watching my movie. Actually, I only care about this when I'm on screen. If I'm not on screen who cares right? I love you too CHINA and I can't wait to come back again next year!" I mean that's basically what I said. Sort of.
Thrilled and grateful you guys are loving our #Apple commercial all around the globe. As always, #DominateYourDay#ROCKxSIRI#XieXie
Sometimes the goal we've worked our ass off for years is never achieved.
Then years later we look back and realize, it's the best thing that NEVER happened.
Special request just came in from a very special and strong young boy.
12yr old Justin, from Lawton, Oklahoma.
Don't quite know what to write here, other than I love ya lil' buddy and Im so grateful you're such an AWESOME fan. We're all sending you endless love and positive energy.
Stay strong. Your big buddy, DJ. #HopeForJustin
Evolution of the bull begins w/ @nikkohurtado.
I've engrained this bull in my DNA for two decades. My core. Humbly, it's also become a symbol of strength, resilience, heart, power and defiance to so many people around the world.
I got this tattoo when I was just a kid. Now I need it to reflect me as a man.
All my ink is a rite of passage and spiritual and the MANA (power and spirit) has to be right before we begin.
Mana is strong with world renowned Nikko. We talked for hours about the man I am today, compared to who I once was. And who I'll always be.
We all desire to grow and evolve. The mana is right.. let the blood and pain begin. #EvolutionOfTheBull#WheresMyVicodin
Note the intense culinary focus from your boy..🏾
Two things I guaran-damn-tee will happen when you set SIRI's timer (cool function)
1) you'll get the job done.
2) one of the world's greatest chefs, @ChefLudo will join you and give you dap.
Ok, he won't do that, but it's makes for a dope commercial.
Watch our entire #Apple commercial in my bio. #UseSirisTimer#AndAlwaysSmellWhatImCookin#ROCKxSIRI
TONIGHT! The #Ballers hype is real.
Thank you for rockin' with us & diggin' the show. And making us set ratings records.
Enjoy the show 10pm on @HBO. 🏾🏾
I'm pulling for you #LaKreshaNorton!
Keep fighting, stay strong and hope you like this little surprise! I'm grateful you're a fan 🏾 ~ DJ
It's OFFICIAL: Visionary filmmaker Jaume-Collet Serra will direct our Disney's #JungleCruise.
I'm a "gut and instincts" guy and all I need is to get face to face with someone to know. After meeting with Jaume I knew he was our guy.
I feel Jaume (he last directed THE SHALLOWS) is going to bring this very cool vision and stylistic edge to our film. Heart and soul and fun romanticism for audiences around the world.
This is a massive beloved Disney property and theme park ride that I hold with boundless respect and love. Our @sevenbucksprod is grateful to have this opportunity to partner with Disney, Jaume, our producing partners Dany Garcia, Beau Flynn, John Davis and John Fox and deliver something epic and magical for the world to enjoy.
And finally, as your Jungle Cruise skipper, I'm going to need you to keep your arms, legs and head inside my boat. Trust me, you'll want to keep them inside my boat. Especially your head.
Pre production begins NOW to start shooting in the spring of 2018. #JungleCruise The cruise of a lifetime..
We all go thru it. Then raise the People's eyebrow.
When life gets tough, you get knocked down and you're going "thru the sludge".. you gotta have faith that if you just keep pushing thru it, on the other side is something greater.
Proud of and inspired by my guy @jonnybones for keeping the faith, pushing thru the sludge, rising up again to be a greater man and becoming new @UFC Light Heavyweight Champion of the world.
When we hugged after the fights he put his UFC title on my shoulder.. a beautiful gesture that I appreciate, but I respectfully gave it back because he's earned it... and the thought of me getting punched in the face in the octagon makes me want to just go eat waffles.
Congratulations champ to you, your family and Team Jones. #ItsNeverOver 🏾🏾
Had the best time at #UFC214 and great to see all of my @UFC friends and fam.
And the best part of the night was meeting the toughest and prettiest fighter in the arena. Ashlyn.
You stay strong honey and keep inspiring all those around you.. including myself.
What a fighter she is. 🏾🏾
I may be the hardest working man in Hollywood, but nothing gets in the way of leg day.
It's all part of me and Siri setting out to #DominateTheDay. Millions of views and counting - Cool to see you guys diggin' our #Apple commercial around the world and finding your own daily motivation. We all have the same hours in the day.. get it done.
Link to watch is in my bio. #ROCKxSIRI#AndDontSkipLegDay
Delivering a lil' package of gratitude. Thanks for rockin' w/ us and enjoyin' #Ballers.
When I get the happy calls from studios & networks, first thing I do I reach out to you guys.
Then I go have a shot of tequila. Or three.
Appreciate y'all and have a productive day 🏾🏾
TONIGHT at 10pm on @HBO. I'm not a gambler, but when it comes to my own two hands and effort... I'll always take that bet. #Ballers#Vegas#BuildIt Join us TONIGHT on @HBO
Killer workout in before heading down to Anaheim, for #UFC214.
Pumped I finally have a day off to go support the fighters & the company tonight.
I'll be sitting front row tonight living vicariously thru the fighters since years ago I fantasized about competing in the octagon. Training for years to hopefully, one day become UFC Heavyweight Champion.
Then reality smartened me up because remembered, I really really really really never liked being punched in the face.
As a matter of fact, I hate it.
Even if me and @charlizeafrica weren't good friends, I'd still love and respect the hell outta this amazing woman.
Best quality she has, is her heart of gold. The OTHER best quality she has, is she's tougher than a $2 dollar steak and will beat your ass like a Cherokee drum.
She's a rare gem and I'm rooting for her success big time this weekend with her new movie.
And after seeing how bad ass she is in #AtomicBlonde I think she's earned herself a shot at the title.
Rock vs Charlize. Winner take all. She ain't ready for.. Let me stop right now before she kicks my ass.
Enjoy #AtomicBlonde this weekend! 🏾
She had me at - I want to write a movie script that shows a raw, human side of you the world has never seen.
A pleasure to sit for hours with the creator of POWER and prolific writer, @courtneyakemp.
I was impressed at the deep dived research she did on my life and career before our meeting. She writes brilliantly flawed, edgy, exposed, vulnerable, intense characters and she had a take on my life in ways no writer ever has.
A fascinating POV from this woman, on what makes me the man I am today.
This is the first step of many and projects like this take time. Great initial meeting and can't wait to dig in with her.
Rage.. Rage against the dying of the light. #JohnsonKemp#Collaboration
Ayyye now that's how ya kick off a new season on @HBO!
