Isn't he pretty?

Can you... can you

speak English?

- Yes.

- What...?

- What day is it?

- "Yes, I like to move it, move it."

This is best day of my life!

- No, I'm asking...

- Ah, what the day?

- Yeah.

- Er, it's, er...

Wait a minute.

Stupid question. What day is it?

- Oh, sorry.

- OK.

It's 24 July.

And what a day it is.

It's the best day ever.

You might be wondering

why I'm up at this ungodly hour.

Like others, I believe that the time

between 3:
00am and 4:00am

is one where the veil between

this world and the next is the thinnest.

Often during this time of the day,

I hear the sound of my name

uttered by an unseen presence.

Good morning.

Wow!

And here we go

into the garage.

That's right.

We're going to ride the elevator.

All right. Let's ride it.

Here it is.

This is the elevator at the market

parking garage in Round Oak, Virginia.

This elevator has been made

famous right here. Here we go.

Here we are at 6

which is burned out.

Just your basic Dover elevator.

For all of those of you at Dover Elevators,

it's a good brand of elevator.

Now we're gonna go back down to 1.

All right. Now it's time

to go off to work.

Wasn't that fun?

You know how much strength

it takes to rebel? Huh?

So, this is a night in the life

of S Grey, man.

You know what I'm saying?

Sleeping on the couch.

With no bag.

Grinding my ass off every day.

'Shorties' not enjoying their mother.

Man not enjoying his wife

or his woman, his lady.

Just bullshit, man.

Alpha male...

...trapped in and locked in

through religion and politics.

Soon enough, man, my plans

will all come into perfection.

- I love you.

- I love you, too.

Today we're gonna videotape

Sasha doing his first ever shave.

- Oh, boy.

- All right, Sasha's how old now?

Er... 15.

Oh, good, good.

First thing Sasha's gonna do

is get the water hot

for the, er, hot cloth that

you're gonna put on your face.

Yes. So it'll warm up your face

and moisturise your skin.

Does he have like

a nice warm face now?

- It's always been hot!

- Whatever you say there, dude.

I think we should probably do

a close-up of those whiskers.

They're really long now.

Thank you.

You need to, like, really lather it up.

OK, I don't think you need

to put it on your nose!

Yeah...

A five-blade razor

which we got as a sample.

- Is it time?

- Go ahead.

OK, you're shaving for me.

This is embarrassing.

- I'm bleeding.

- Yes. Don't worry.

- You will survive it.

- Wow!

Don't worry, you'll be all right.

This is torture.

Does it hurt?

- Yes.

- It'll sting for a little while.

All right, dry yourself off and let's

take a look at the nice, clean shave.

Good job, buddy.

Here's what we do.

Hey, don't...

Face the camera here.

Put a little piece on there.

See, and it sticks to the bloody part.

And voil. He's done.

Hey, wait.

High five, buddy. You survived it.

We're documenting everything.

Bobby, let mommy sleep.

Are you feeling OK?

Oh, I just feel terrible, you know.

You feel weird?

OK, this is how you'll be weirder.

- OK, let's let mommy sleep.

- OK!

Bobby, get down.

- We're gonna let mommy sleep.

- Son of a cuz...

Oh, thank you, thank you.

Erm, I do have a question though,

cos I...

My biggest worry is, of course,

my bandages and stuff,

but I know I can take a shower,

but I haven't.

I thought maybe I could at least try

take a shower before you got here.

Is that OK if I just go ahead

and do that? Oh, good.

- Dad, can I come down?

- Bobby, can we have a talk though?

Please, please.

I just need to have a talk, OK?

Because grandma is telling me,
