I officially start off this semester as a Philosophy major, tooo excited about this and for what reasons? Here's a small glimpse as to why i decided to changed my major this late in the game:
● Philosophy, logic, and reason are of the most passionate topics I like to engage in, it offers different viewpoints, different ideas, it presents me with new ways of thinking
● Philosophy will prepare me for the LSATS that will ultimately help me...
● help me get into William & Mary Law School in VA, one of my dream schools
● I will know how to better represent myself when debating and arguing
● and i think, therefore i am lol
of course the obvious answer to returning from a hiatus is " i went on a hiatus", not so my case haha, My older molder macbook went dead on me, but I'm back and in a more so creative spill than normal, with a new spark in creative inquiry i will share my thoughts and views some funny, most random, some thought provoking, and others no so much
sorry i was gone, but i'm back
sorry i was gone, but i'm back
I've always wondered why artist sample beats or instruments into their songs, and at first I thought this is a sell out lol...but then i realized art is art; regardless of how its achieved, however there is a difference between copying and pasting someone's direct work and taking it and adding your own personal spin to it. I believe kanye does this effortlessly, using songs that are relevant to his songs and mashing them together or sampling from the other song is art,
another thing I noticed is most videos these days usually have the formula of "butt naked hoes", "ridiculously blinged out jewlery" "cars", and "drugs(alcohol or weed)"...seeing a video that quenches my thirst for art makes for a bomb ass song and also a great story line
sidenote (if you watch Ye's heartless video there's the Campbell soup portrait by Andy Warhol which stood for repetition during the post modernist period; i wonder if hype knew this and incorporated it in the video to show symbolism between it and how the song was sampled?
"you make me smile..with my heart"
People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered
love them anyway
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives
do good anyway
If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies
Honesty and frankness makes you vulnerable
be honest and frank anyway
The biggest mean and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds
think big anyway
People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs
fight for a few underdogs anyway
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight
People really need help but may attack you if you do help them
help people anyway
Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth
give the world the best you have anyway
What really constitutes as a hater?
1.) someone who doesn't like you?
2.) someone who talks about you?
3.) someone who doesn't respond when you say "what's up"
4.) someone who looks at you differently
5.) idk lol
I mean this is America and people are entitled to not like certain people that's natural, but what isn't natural is how malicious people can be in their efforts to try and destroy another individual. I mean there are people I look at and say "hhmmmmm I don't think I can actually get along with that person"...that doesn't give me the right to hate them..wait I could hate them...but that would belittle my soul..so I should chose not too. Hating someone means relentlessly trying to avoid that person, thinking/hoping about there mishaps, etc... If I "Hate on You/Hate You" why the hell would I want to be reminded about you consistently.? Still what constitutes as a hater? I'm sure everyone has them. Those one or two individuals that constantly watch your every move trying to evoke a sense of wrong doing? Like get a life...lol
but in the words of someone I look up to
"I realize that I've arrived when it takes more than a magazine to kill my vibe"-Kanye West
replace magazine with gossip, rumor, blog, facebook status lol, etc.
"Haters" as they are so respectively called are suppose to drive us to make sure we don't mess up and also give them something to talk/think about.
It's one thing to say your the truth or how real you are but to go and be false and be a hypocrite? hhhmmmmmm really? How unreal can you get?
but everyone is entitled to what he/she wants to do? I just don't understand the need for trying to destroy some else...be happy for you and stop worrying about the next person.
