The Numbers Say It All!

As previously stated, the AUC is back and in full effect. When it comes to the Morehouse College Maroon Tiger football team.... They are in it to WIN it. The first football game of the season was LIVE, to say the very least. Stands were filled with students, families, and fans... and as for the field... the Maroon Tigers had absolutely NO MERCY!

In the AUC, the collegiate community in which the two makers of this Blog thrive, we are all about supporting one another and making it to the top of whatever game we play in life. We like to (as Ezekiel Phillips puts it) Feed off of each others energy. 'Man oh Man', were the Maroon Tigers able to Feed off of the enormous amount of positive energy coming from the stands at their first game of the season, and it brought nothing but SUCCESS!

With a win of number..... our team showed Atlanta how a season should be kicked off. . and YES as always, we were there to deliver. ON THE APPLE BOX had all cameras on deck, ready to show the world how we get down 'round these parts. So, as always.. Check out the hotness!

Back on the Block

The AUC is back and in full effect!!!
What better way to start off the year than with a Block Party?
And of course On The Apple Box captured it all.
With tons of Food, music, and fun, a "pre-academic" function was the perfect AUC Family Reunion! We all know that Atlanta University Center consists of a few of the top HBCUs in the country, so of course the GREEKS are definitely back on the yard and reppin' their organizations.

The excitement did not stop there. People hailing from all three institutions (Spelman College, Morehouse College, and Clark Atlanta University) were all dolled up and bringing their best "Macking" abilities to the table. With the AUC crowd you can expect nothing less.

As always, OTAB had to bring you all in for the Action, so that you can see how the AUC "gets down". Now don't forget the rule, that Time is Money, and time cannot be WASTED.
Check out the hotness:

The Taste from Abroad

After taking one of the most memorable dance classes of my life last winter to one of her fantastic songs... all I can say is one word.



One thing that cannot be denied is that London knows how to make 'em.. Especially when it comes to the music industry, and man have they blessed the world with this one! Adele's unique genre can hardly be explained in words, but I'd like to think it is a taste of Acoustic Pop, Jazz, and Ne-yo Soul, that appeals to the masses. She was also named the Best New Artist at the 2009 Grammy's based off of the Hotness found in her latest Album "19"


Here is a taste of her Lyrical Delight, one of my favorite songs on her album,
"Cold Shoulder"

Enjoy! Don't forget to check out her Myspace

Work HARD play Later! Casey Veggies WORKIG HARD!!!!

Yea my lil bro Casey Veggies gets a pass from me for going to sleep SUPER early around 9pm, because I dont think that there is another 16yr old out of Cali INGLEWOOD 2 B EXACT that works as HARD as he does in this Music Game!I was chopping it up with my boy before he fell asleep and he was telling me that not only was this music treating him right but that he was also ready for this semester to start back at Inglewood High School. His plans are to push his New MixTape thats dropping soon while staying FOCUSED on his books. Now thats what Im talking about!!!!! I cant lie, I wasnt that focused at his age because I was too busy in them streets. Check your boy's music out on his Myspace Page. Its dude like him that MOTIVATE me. It shows me on a DAILY that there is NO TIME 2 play around because you have young soldiers thats coming up right behind you and aint playing NO GAMES.

Now with me being a film maker and all, when I saw this Dudes music video for "Its All Good" I must have went BANANAS. This young brutha is very TALENTED and WISE. I have to say that Im loving what Im hearing and seeing from this young brotha Casey. I think people can stop asking when will REAL HIP HOP Come back, because YOU ARE NOW LOOKING AT THE FUTURE!!!!!!

Talk about a JOY RIDE

Well technically is was the First ride of my life. As most of you know, Ezekiel and I have had quite the summer. Handling what, at times, seems to be never-ending business. The good thing is that we LOVE what we do, and business equals pleasure. No matter the event, we always keep On The Apple Box in mind... and with this particular experience, we definitely brought OTAB along for the ride!


Horse back riding is something that I have always wanted to experience and never had the opportunity to do so. Therefore, while we were working out in LA, Ezekiel decided to show me what its all about! With an awesome mountain trail and a gorgeous view, the experience could not go without being captured. So, hold your breath, because the video will be coming soon, but for now... enjoy the pictures.

Another successful year at the Youth to Leaders Conference thats held annually across the united states.
I am so privileged to have come up out of this conference three years ago when it was held in Houston Texas @ Texas Southern University. Now three years later it was on my Coast which is the WEST COAST. The conference took place at UCLA for over a course of 4 days. The Youth to Leaders Conference is designed to help young people between the ages 13-18 male & females to find their Leader in themselves. TRUST ME the conference is very effective because before I came to the conference back in 06 as a Student Delegate, I thought that the streets was my Leader. After leaving that conference with so many educated young people from all across the states I just knew I needed to CHANGE the way I thought.

I have been extremely busy over the summer with filming and everything but there was no way I was going to miss the conference especially the Talent Show, Community Service Project, or the Closing Banquet!

Speaking of closing Banquet, the speaker of the night was on POINT! of course because she is my Big sister:) Ginene Lewis just graduated from Spelman College & now she is on her way to law school in the fall. She has been a Student delegate since she was 12 and was my counsel leader when I came into the Institute.

I had a GREAT Time & I enjoyed myself at the conference. As you know & can see in the picture with Tavis, I NEVER leave the house without my camera so as soon as Im done with the editing you will have access to it first!:) So until then continue to LEAD LOVE SAVE SERVE.. Because "You cant LEAD the people if you dont LOVE the people & you cant SAVE the people if you dont SERVE the people"-Dr.Cornel West

"The Life of Aaron Reid" Thanks for the Love. Also do me a favor and follow my boy AR on Twitter @Thearexperience let him know what you think about it.

One of a Kind


If anyone in the industry has their very own unique, unparalleled eye when it comes to filmmaking... it is none other than Mr. Tim Burton. Almost annually, he delivers mind blowing works that knock the socks off of the charts, critics, and viewers all across the world. His movies are known to take each person watching to a different place and time. A place that they can, usually, only visit in their dreams. Burton definitely has the ability to make dreams become realities. As a creator, he brings the best out of each script, writer, and actor that takes part in his projects. Oh, man!!! I HOPE that I can get on that level one day!


Right now, Burton is keeping everyone on their toes by slowly providing little bits of information on his up and coming film for 2010.. ALICE IN WONDERLAND! Check out the trailer, and keep your eyes and ears open and ready for this amazing piece of work!!

The group, out of Los Angeles, has what it takes, not just to make it in the music industry, but in the film industry as well. Yes"Crumbling Therapy" is a music video, and not a movie, but the concept will make you feel like your watching a short movie/music You guys all know whats been going on with music videos these days right? Well if you dont... people are running out of CREATIVE ideas so they feel like the only thing they can do is show The MONEY, CARS, CLOTHES, & The . . . . . Yeah you know the rest. Sorry to let some folks down but that is just not going to cut it for long, its time for NEW FRESH IDEAS, and thats exactly what my boy Mac Faulkner (Director of video) & I are bringing you with this new video.

We all know that Hope Harris runs this blog with me but what you all dont know is that she is apart of the TEAM 4 LIFE!!! For these past days in LA she has been with me every step of the way, and as we continue to GROW & LEARN the film Industry, I know that we will BUILD STRONGER & STRONGER each day!!! As much as I want 2 put up some of the behind the scenes footage, I cant do that JUST YET. . . BUT!!!! what I will do is give you the song "Crumbling Therapy" 2 Download!: Listen & give Feed Back.
