UPDATE ON THELOOKOUTDIARY

In Uncategorized on January 8, 2013 at 8:15 pm

To all my followers,

I am truly sorry I have quit blogging….I am kidding. Writing is my life. I will never stop writing.

I have a new website. It will be updated as often as a writer can keep writing. The focus is still the same. I will spread truth, honesty, love and compassion towards all my readers through my perception of life and the significant experiences that occur in my life. I swear to never write words with no reason or be pretentious but only pure and honest with every syllable, adjective, noun and pronoun that is published on my page.

If you want to follow me on my quest for greatness, meaning and growth, keep following. Bookmark my new website, and I’ll see you on the other side.

The Lovely Therapy Called Music

In Hip Hop on April 15, 2012 at 1:01 am

I have recently become addicted to music. I am lying on the internet. That is bad. I have been addicted to Hip Hop for quite while. It seems like music gives me therapy and a sense of peace. On a typical morning, I will start my day by playing something old school like The Blueprint – Jay Z. Something like this to get me in the mood for my day, regardless of the fact that Jay-Z ‘disses’ my favourite rapper Nas.

So, I realise that a lot of the music I listen to is absolute trash, but the production and flow takes me on a journey that educates me. Yeah, I get educated by rubbish, just like everyone else on this planet. So I switch it up to something raw, and intellectually challenging.

Afternoon comes, and I have been listening to a selection of albums from Nas, Jay-Z, Kanye West and Common. I take a breather, and release some energy with Dubstep, which also includes rap.

I can’t exactly be living my life, listening to deep and meaningful music all the time. Sometimes I want to let loose and just listen to rubbish like the rest of society. I then realise that I am in full control of what I listen to on the internet, radio, television and any other devices that transmit some sort of rhythm and flow. Knowing that I am in control, I feel like I can continue listening to it and still understand the underlying truth beyond music and the power of the industry and its ability to manipulate people’s ideas.

 

I still find it relaxing, but I still gotta say music is deep. Isn’t it?
