Class Warfare

Posted in art, artists, Feminism, health, life, music, subculture by the consummate on September 22, 2011

What the Fuck? – Crass

“You built a factory out there? Good for you. But I want to be clear: you moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for; you hired workers the rest of us paid to educate; you were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did.

“Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea? God bless. Keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.”

– Elizabeth Warren on claims the Democrats are participating in “class warfare”

Mystical Mantra Energy

Apparently here in Europe there’s a Jesus holiday going on today. Something about the Holy Spirit. Obviously, I am not well versed but respectful. Posting this, my favorite version of Hare Krishna, in respect to the holiness of the day. But isn’t everyday holy?

A mantra is mystical energy encased in a sound structure and each mantra contains within its vibrations a certain power. But of all mantras, the maha-mantra (the Hare Krishna mantra) has been prescribed as the easiest and surest way for attaining God Realization in this present age.” 

George Harrison (1943-2001),
in his autobiography :’I, me and Mine’

Camus Quote

Posted in art, artists, beauty, Feminism, friendship, health, humor, life, love, music, new york, oldies, relationships, Uncategorized, vacation, WTF, yoga by the consummate on May 27, 2011

Camus and his existential thought patterns. His simplistic language has always captured me. I first read L’Étranger when I was about 14 years old, Robert Smith was my dream lover and The Cure’s KILLING AN ARAB inspired me to pick up the book. As an impressionable teen I felt akin to the narrator, Meursault’s, dilemma – not being able to fit in to the contradictory and oppressive rules of society. The outsider looking in – that is me. Things could be ever so simple if I agreed to follow the rules but alas, my wild heart cannot be tamed. The personal musings of my blog reflect my emotional and mental state at moments, but what I’d like to remind you readers is that however I am feeling, know, that I am stronger than I lead on to be and that I have begun to love myself more than my tendency to punish myself.

C’est Cauchemar

I have dreams with a recurring theme – they are all about me + you. I wish they would stop and we could talk. So get out of my dreams and into my car. Oh wait, I don’t have a car but you understand what I mean right?

Ikon Allah

If G-d wills it…

Is it possible that I am becoming more religious in a sense? My recent trip to Israel left me more proud of my heritage + culture but also with a profound sense of faith. I spent much time in Jaffa where there is a beautiful blend of Jews + Muslims living harmoniously with one another. One day, I found myself sitting on the rocks above waves crashing on the beach with strangers at 4 in the morning. We looked up at the stars and thanked G-d for the beauty we were experiencing. At that moment the Iman began his calls for prayers at the mosque. To hear this sound before dawn was eerie and other worldly. I felt as if I was having an out of body experience. The sound wasn’t unfamiliar, I’ve heard it before but I’ve changed.  As the vocalist Abdullahi sings “Ikon Allah” – Will of G-d, I too sing this tune. If certain things in my life are meant to be, it is the will of G-d and I leave it up to the higher powers that be. I know what I want but if it it is the will of G-d, it will come to be.

Cheers to my girlfriend whom I am traveling with. We’re “balling out” in Italy currently where we have a week of fun + games planned including celebrating at an Ambassador’s home, shopping (or for some window shopping) at the outlet mall, running through Villa Borghese, visiting sights, seeing music. It’s a good fucking life y’all, especially with friends.

Foolish Reminders

Misguided Angel

Posted in art, artists, beauty, health, life, love, music, new york, oldies, relationships, spirituality by the consummate on May 6, 2011

Will you love me ’til I’m dead? Even with my past discrepancies?

Nobody’s perfect. We have periods in our lives (or perhaps for some, like the subject of this song, an entire lifetime) of misguiding. But when you fall in love, it doesn’t matter what kinds of discrepancies a person has, you love to love. I feel like often we think we can accept a person and their misgivings but in reality we can’t handle these so we berate them for what they cannot change.  In this case, there are two options: #1) to walk away #2) to accept + perhaps, if we feel wronged, forgive.
