If I ever, ever. Ever, say that I’ve purchased Folger’s coffee again, I give full permission to any of you out there to come over, and slap the sh*t out of me as if you’re a Pimp, and I’m your Ho. Or is it Hoe. Not sure, I only ever really say it, never type it. But you can slap me around as if I belong to you and I essentially messed up a trick or something, and you’re all pissed off at me for it, cause it’s probably going to ruin some repeat business, and I know that’s really key, cause there’s a lot of Hos out there, but there’s only a few good ones. Or at least that’s what I hear people (wearing fuzzy zoot suits, big hats, and lots of gold) on the subway saying.
Anyhoo. It’s gross, and they were out of my favorite awesome organic coffee. I’m literally trying not to puke.
2. I was mugged at gunpoint recently while walking home from the local market. And all I wanted from that point on was to find those responsible, and inflict the most extreme amounts of pain possible, as if I was Jigsaw, from the ever-popular ‘Saw’ franchise.
has conditioned you into thinking that all hearts are red and all spades are black because their shapes are similar. It’s easier for your mind to interpret them based on that past experience instead of being open to the idea they could be different. We see what we expect to see, not necessarily…
Currently writing a screenplay. No, more of an outline, of a movie based on this very monologue. All we are in life is a series of our moments. And all we can do is learn and grow. But as much as you learn from the way you experience these moments, I think it’s important to not get wrapped up in a self-centric view of it. There’s an entire universe out there, waiting to be explored….
“This existence of ours is as transient as autumn clouds.
To watch the birth and death of beings is like looking at the movements of a dance.
A lifetime is like a flash of lightning in the sky,
Rushing by, like a torrent down a steep mountain.”—Buddha (via rainbowsandwitheringwinters)
Just wanted to clear up a few things. I’m not an asshole. I’m a struggling artist just like a lot of you out there. I’d like to sum up my stance on the other states with Film Incentives, as I’m sure my view is very confusing to most, and comes off with a great deal of cynicism.
First, I don’t believe in the institution of money. This transparent ideology that the amount of money you have is a direct correlation to the type of person you are, your success level, and the infinite generalizations that also come from the amount of zeroes in your bank account, or safe, or shoebox.
I understand the free market society and what is supposedly founded on, but the fact that it was rigged from the get-go by programs and initiatives set up by venture capitalists, corporations, and the Governments of the world alike.
I also understand that we as a group of people are out of control, and our leaders have decided that you have to put something into place to control the mass populations of people, and prevent them from destroying themselves.
Unfortunately this has become a way of life for the vast majority of the world. Literally, nearly everyone has accepted that as the basis for the meaning to their lives, that money isn’t all that important, but you need it if you want to survive. And that isn’t true at all. Money is just what we’ve relied on as to life outside of those constructs puts you on the ‘outs’ with almost everyone that lives within them. It gives us a very skewed view of looking at life. Money was invented by some Freemasons a long time ago, because they didn’t trust people to become enlightened and live in harmony amongst one another, given our differences.
And so it’s become the lifeblood of everyone out there. Having to ‘make that money’ because that’s the only way.
I’m here to tell you it isn’t. You can become flustered over the state of the world today all you want. But until you step off your high horse and explore the bureaucracy at the very base, at the very root of the problem, you can begin to work from the ground up, shifting worldwide paradigms, bringing about a new level of awareness, so that we may actually have peace, logic, and love in the world.
The problem isn’t in the incentives themselves, but in the problems they were put into place to try and fix. The problem is that people believe they should screw other people over just for some extra $$ in their pocket. I watched it happen, many a time. Productions coming in, thinking they can pay someone $1000 for a months worth of 16 hour days. And then complaining about 2nd meal, or a full lunch time. This is where the problem is. How far are you willing to go for a $?
I ask this to all of you, artists or not.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned, Hollywood will turn you into a beast. It will make you screw your friends over, turn you into a cynical prick, basing your entire belief system on something you think you ‘need’.
It’s not a cure at all to any of the fiscal problems of the state, country, and world. It’s only wiping the poop off your hand, not actually washing your hands of and sanitizing them.
I urge you to check out populations of the world living without money. Living, based on the truest forms of spirituality, art, and love amongst human beings. After all that’s what it’s all about, right?
You may ask what I myself am doing. 4 years ago I started a grassroots movement, trying to put to sleep these falsifications placed on us by our leaders, perpetuating the corruption and greed of our world. It’s about putting love and the human condition first, setting aside selfishness, and replacing it with interconnectivity among the living world. We can all accomplish our goals, we can all be happy. But it’s going to take a different way of thinking to attain it.
Look around you. How selfish are you? The people around you? How important is a mansion, and a luxury lifestyle to making the world a happier, safer place.
How has money done anything to help us? How is wanting world dominating power going to solve any of our actual problems?
What do you really care about? And what are you doing about it?
Holy crap I know it’s going to be a good day today!
Getting ready to leave the house, I’m listening to some music to pump me up before hitting the streets of Hollywood on a Friday morning to do a little promotion at the upscale hotels, and all of a sudden, this song came on.
If there was ever a tune to make me stop whatever I’m doing and enjoy the moment, it’s that one. While strolling down Vermont in Los Feliz last night I heard a live band playing. Made me miss my friends back home. A LOT.
It is time to put some of these songs to the test. I’ve started rearranging some old songs I wrote in High School and college.
If you’re in LA, and you want to make some musical magic, hit me up.
I have a fever, and the only cure is more cowbell. And by cowbell I mean artistic self-expression through musical tones.
