The wave

I truly believe that if you are not insulted by 99% of advertisements on T.V. and radio, even print advertisements, you may be a dumbshit. You see, it's an insult to my intelligence when someone trys selling me something by speaking using a certain tone, looking a certain way or using dramatic tunes. It is very much annoying. For this reason, on my 45 minute drive to work, I find myself alone with my thoughts. Sometimes it's boring but still much preferred (least by me) over listening to retarded radio hosts and their tepid ads. Again, I prefer to not be insulted by their overzealous attempts at influencing me. Now n then I'll put a good CD in and bump to that. I absolutely abhor these jerk offs trying to sell me poisonous energy drinks or fast food using deceitful tactics like slow flicker rates essentially hypnotizing you through your tube. I'd have not 1 issue placing all these marketing companies on an Island somewhere and nuking them.

Anyhoot, on a lighter note, work is ghuud, feeling appreciated is nice and rather new to me. I normally am anti working for others besides myself but for the folks for whom I currently do, I am pleased with the arrangement. Although it goes against much you'll find written on this blog, I'll probably be moving to Manhattan soon where I find I get along better with people. Sorta torn between saving money or living it up. I don't believe you only live once but do that life is short so the city, although it's always been my stomping ground, may soon be where I rest my head.

Under and in.

Way to work

Bout Competition

Never really appreciated NY much as I do these days. Most of the posts on this blog would give you a taste of how much I hate city life. Thing is this: Opportunity to live a ridiculously more privileged life than really anywhere else in the world is not only prevalent but abundant here. And, if you have the drive and ambition, if you are a fucking hustler, you can place yourself, put simply, in high positions. These days I am all about taking no prisoners. I live in the moment and don't fuck around. Not the hippyish dude I've been the past couple years. Unfortunately, worrying about the events that make the world a terrible place has been detrimental to my well being. So, to hell with that crap. Since being a seed we have endlessly competed and, when competing, to win is the goal. Whether to get into that womb or into that honors class, a competition its always been. For this reason, a hustler is, in my opinion, very much correct in the path he's chosen. And I don't mean a street hustler but a person who strives to win at whatever they do. To be the best, like they were when trying to enter their mommys womb.

Amazing advice from a cousin

 "The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company...a church...a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you...we are in charge of our Attitudes." ~ Jono
