I'm 22, Born in ABQ, raised in Cali. I've been in ABQ since May and diggin it. I'm a musician. www.myspace.com/youngwisdomtheiniot
Its been so long since I've felt like I knew what I was doing. My life is so unclear at times and for a split second it all makes sense before I'm out again. I've been reading scriptures from time to time trying to find some guidance from the One. I still feel at odds with the Holy Rollers of the world because they still use the book as a shield and the Devil as an excuse.
I used to be a smart but stupid motherfucka, you get me? I kinda miss it, I had fun laughin and jokin about the pain but eventually it began to hurt even to laugh. I feel like who I was is gone but who I am is nothing now. I'm still leaning on this bullshit and keepin my eyes on anything suspicious but I'm growing tired of playing the look out.
I think I'm looking for a new purpose in life but maybe the One Above just never showed me the original one yet. Am I jumpin the gun? Do I have to wait for a sign? If so for how long? How do I know I didn't miss my window of opportunity? Why the fuck do I got so many unanswered questions and STILL feel like thats how its supposed to be? Is this world we live in all a dream? Have you ever thought about life like that?
One thing I'm trying to bring to my music is that real side of myself. That one that won't bullshit himself and pretend Life is as easy and understood as we all seem to want to believe. I won't lie, sometimes I find comfort in "Everything will work out, Life is good" but thats only temporary before I come crashing down to "We are living in the Last Days. The Book of Revelations is playing out before our eyes"
Myspace is like a forbidden fruit to me. I love joking and bullshittin' and acting like life no more than gettin faded, fuckin' and talkin shit. I used to hate the "party pooper" talkin bout "God is watchin, would you do it in His presence?" until the moment I realized if He is watchin', then whatever the fuck we do IS in His presence. My world came crashing down.......
Everything we do without good, all the shit we think we're hiding from His eyes is the EXACT shit that He is watching you do. Thats when I realized all that 'hate' that I felt for that Godly one who 'rained on my parade', was all the hate I felt towards myself. We are all sinners, we're born that way......
When I attacked the most fearsome of opponents I struck hard and fast without warning in the name of.....IDK.....love, faith, Him, It, the One, Allah or whatever you wanna call it. It came to me one day that I would never be able to defeat this Foe of all Foes, not because I lacked confidence or ability, but because this shit is Chess it aint checkers and you play only against yourself under the watchful of eye of who or what it is you believe in. Life's a trip ain't it?
Anyway, I've spent all the spare time I've had, not much, devoting my energy to the keyboard. I don't want to make "Christian Music'. I have nothing against it. I just want to show that life is about the mixture between Good and Evil. No matter how Good you are, you will encounter Evil on a daily basis and vice versa.
So the point of all this is this.........I'm looking for somebody to chop game with on this subject. On one hand, this is all for the music. I plan on using these typed or written conversations as reference when I finally get into the studio again, for what I fear may be my last time. I really want to make this count. On the other hand I can't ignore the fact that we need to find that one thing that we're all searching for. We are here to help each other find it.
I'm not a preacher, I won't judge you. Hell I still cuss like a mufukkin sailor because thats the reality. What was once a "sin" is now common practice in the world we live in. I'm not afraid to talk about stupid shit, round here we call that 'shootin the shit', right? haha I'm very different from a year or two ago, but I'm still the same on the inside. If you wanna get down on this real grown man shit and search for peace with me I'm always up, but if not, lets just get high and reminisce on life when we thought it was easy :)
I don't know bout the political aim and the AT&T thing goin on but I know this. People shouldn't sleep on these 2 artists in particular. Public Enemy and Pearl Jam made timeless music.
Music should not be judged by time and Im not surprised at all that P.E. made another classic album today.
Bone thugs have been around 14 years and look at all the groupies jockin "I Tried" and "Lil Love". It ain't about where you from, its how you come. Time or place......
I don't know the article but Pearl Jam was censored for what reason? Im guessing it was politically motivated. I hope they get what they deserve.
That was actually the point I was trying to make. Joaquin Phoenix is an actor AND he's a vegan.....truly remarkable.
Damn, thats a real scary thought. I believe that what makes it so frightening is the fact that it's alot closer to reality then we want to think.
I grew up in the late 80's/early 90's so when I think World War, Cold War, International Conflict.....I think a Hollywood movie set or High School textbook, but never a legitimate news story.
I don't consider this war "real". I respect the military and human beings they're consisted of (my dad served in the USMC) but by the time this war reaches my attention its already been edited for entertainment value and profit (not to mention the stuff we're afraid to say). Its sad to say that this war we're in still makes me think "Hollywood movie set."
This Cold War idea just hits too cold. Its too close to reality. Could it be a Big counter-power is saying "Thats enough, you've gone to far"? I don't know bout any of you wanna-be gangstas or punk-posers but I ain't afraid to admit that this scares me. The real people in this country feel me.
Just my thoughts.
I don't know bout Posh's TV show, I'm not much on tv anyway.
I think Beckham will be a good thing for Soccer in this country. Its already the world's most popular sport. If nothing else at least we can turn it into a flashy, money driven, steroid pumpin', soda sellin' TELEVISION EVENT like our other sports.....
Oh shit, what have we done, Beckham....take this sport and run home. Its in danger in these parts.
That was great. Took me back in the day but.....different. haha.
I'd love to see King Koopa defendin his castle in this reality mode or somethin.
This is on some real shit. Alot like that Cold War thing going on, this one isn't too far from actually happening either.
Personally, I would hope that SOMEBODY in this country does grow the balls to spark the revolution in the event that its called for. What worries me is, will the people stand up and support it, or cling to their iPhone's and Starbucks and go home and watch it on TV? Its too convenient to make the world go away when you don't like what it is but what do you do when it comes to you?
"Whether you're for marijuana or against marijuana, I think we all have to be against patients having to risk their personal safety and liberty to try to do something the state was supposed to shoulder."
That quote right there sums it up nicely. I know politics is complex and bla, bla, bla, but sometimes you find more understanding in the simplest forms.
I'm not a "pot-head" per say, but I'm pro-Mary. So I can already feel the right-winged backlash when I say that; Its my opinion that the pro-mary's are looking out for the people who aren't abusing the plant. People that actually benefit medically from its use. While the anti-mary's are looking FOR the people who are abusing it.
I have keratoconus in my eyes (look it up) and I feel I would benefit from marijuana. I don't have a permit to grow, I don't know any dealers, I'm 22 years old and I'm from California.....I have to be honest when I say I wouldn't feel safe carrying bud, from a legal standpoint.Is that good or bad? Really?
My point is, when your scared you do what you must to "survive" or for "pleasure" whether its duckin' the police or sparkin a J to relieve your headaches, your gonna do what you have to do. Sometimes its not right in the eyes of God and sometimes its not right in the eyes of the law, but its closer to an animal instinct than anything. SO....when you have the anti-mary's opposing these types of laws I can't help but feel immobilized.
On one hand, they're right. It is a controlled substance, when money gets involved it can lead to violence, it can also be abused if not used correctly. As a community I suggest that the pro-mary's do what they can to legitimize the use FROM the streets, as well as in the buildings.
Don't abuse it if you use it. Be thankful to have it. Use it to relax and meditate. Find God. Write a rap album. Play the guitar. Write a letter to the Alibi! Don't drive or ride a bike unless your good at it, though....................Bottom line, Do Something Productive, it doesn't really matter. Don't act cool cuz you smoke and go fuck up the legal shit. Don't give them a reason to stop you, they already have their own. Keep it cool and take it easy on the dumbshit.
As long as we respect the plant and the laws of mankind equally we can move forward to whats really important in life......
Just my twisted opinions
Nice one. I want to hear Felix y Los Gato's now.
In my day, we got brainwashed by the next hot item and we like it!! haha
