New York, NY

New York, NY

As I stare out of the oversized window of my New York City studio apartment, gazing out at a vibrant, fantastical and energized civilization, it has finally hit me, I have changed. And not a change associated with monotony and persistence of time; real change.  On the eve of my departure from the “world’s capital” […]

What have you done?

What have you done?

It’s a simple question, what have you done? In a world in contention, so many people project their empty impressions on just about any and every situation, profession, conflict, and argument without having any REAL experience that relates to the subject matter. So again, what have you done? Blindly following what you have read from […]

Staying Relevant

Staying Relevant

One of the most important attributes for success in any path is the ability to stay relevant.   Relevance isn’t popularity. It isn’t dedication. And it isn’t knowledge.   Relevance is simply the concept of connection between topics, ideas, things or people. To be relevant, one must be connected or in association with the topic […]

Disstractions

Disstractions

Everything is a distraction. Every minute of every day you are bombarded with temptations, forced obligations, suggestions, peer related activities, family commitments and mindless entertainment. To the greatest eminence to the lowest nothingness, the world around presses you in every direction, keeping you from your purpose. The girls or guys you date. Your family. Your […]

The Feminist Myth

The Feminist Myth

(New) Feminism is bad. Any movement, group or organization which sets itself apart from the whole, to better their position within the whole without credit, merit or accomplishment is bad. Feminism is just one of many movements within the American society which doesn’t promote equality, but rather revenge, extortion and advancement beyond equality… Separatism. Where it […]

Genderr..

Genderr..

There are few foundational constructs by which societies and civilizations are created. These constructs persevere against religious, cultural and secular breakdowns. As a species, humans are very similar, and because of that similarity, societies from all around the world who have been isolated from each other have created similar, and in most cases, exact constructs […]

Opposing View Theory

Opposing View Theory

Opposing View Theory: When two or more opposite, conflicting and/or alternative ideas set themselves against a ‘subjective’ or ‘abstract’ (and sometimes objective) problem, puzzle and/or conflict which prevents any outcome, solution and/or progress to be obtained. The inability to advance. Digression. Usually, having two or more points of view increases efficiency and outcomes. Usually, there […]

Plastic and Puppies

Plastic and Puppies

Incredible. The blatant perversion of beauty and the abuse of man’s best friend to prop up this abomination has gone too far. Let’s get the puppies out of the way first. What kind of psycho buys a dog in order to look cute? The canine species have been referred to as “man’s best friend” since […]

Religism

Religism

Religion has done more good than harm in our world… This is not a debate. There is no inquisition or crusade or jihad or genocide that you can point to that will ever surpass the consistency of moral foundation obtained by humanity from which all religions are based. People decide not to kill each not […]

#Resolutions

#Resolutions

As 2014 comes to a close and we bid farewell to the year, many of us find ourselves reflecting on the past year and tallying up our wins and losses towards goals we had set forth to accomplish 12 months ago. Some of our unaccomplished goals will make our mental list of resolutions for 2015, […]

#somelivesdontmatter

#somelivesdontmatter

You have compromised truth for lawlessness, spewing verbigerations without check or fact. You have glorified the wicked and worn out hypocrisy, exchanging it for barbarism. You perpetuate the problem by becoming the problem, vernacularizing disobedience and ethnocentrism, showing the world that the great social experiment, America, is now just a farce. A dream that once […]

The Age of Ass

The Age of Ass

We have finally made it and we have come a long way to get here…   …A long way from the philosophies of antiquity, where men challenged the fabric of (un)known realities. A time when science and religion surged at the minds of the world, tempering the foundation of what we know today. Socrates once […]

(E)quality

(E)quality

  Equality does not exist.   There has never been a biological discovery, cognitive science experiment or intellectual movement that has EVER suggested any two people, are in fact, equal. None. Zero. Zilch. Yet, for some reason, society in recent history has directed its focus on making people believe they are equal. And whether it […]

More Crayons

More Crayons

Remember when we were little and all we wanted was the big box of crayons – you know, the box with 64 colors? We knew how much more we could do with all those colors – the things we could create, the pretty colors we could hold and draw with. I remember when I finally […]

Who are you?

Who are you?

Who are you? It’s a simple question, but all of us have different ways to define it within ourselves, and more importantly different ways to express it to others. Some of us use our careers and occupations to let others know who we are. Others use nationality, religion, sexual preference, academic achievements, athletic achievements, performing […]

Identity Left?

Identity Left?

Society is facing two huge sociotechnical dilemmas. The first (and least severe) dilemma is that we have out grown the Internet and the generations after us will be left with emails, domains (Internet Addresses), handles (Twitter, Instagram), usernames and online personas that have almost zero correlation to who they are because someone (or no one) […]

The Toilet Seat

The Toilet Seat

The last bastion of gender (in)equality doesn’t pertain to professional obstacles, access to health care, education attainment or political participation, but rather confines itself to a 15x18x19 inch white ceramic/porcelain cylindrical bowl containing approximately 1.6 gallons of water and a dual mode plastic seat that is manually opened and closed. On one hand, we have […]

Staying Connected

Staying Connected

We have the ability to connect with people ‘virtually’ anywhere and anytime we choose.  This advancement of communication has allowed us to follow friends, family, and even people we have never met through technology and social media sites like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. But somewhere along the way we have neglected the actual connection(s) between […]

Growing Up Loser

Growing Up Loser

Popularity, with its vast degrees of circumstance, subjectivity and chronology, at its basic state is an illusion which prevents, or hinders a person from achieving ‘actual’ success, if said success hasn’t already been obtained. Meaning, at the different stages of life, popularity only matters in the end game because at any stage before the end […]

Power of Failure

Power of Failure

Personal failure is the most underrated motivator in our society. The rite of passage to greatness is not only achieved by figuring out what it takes to win, but also figuring out what it doesn’t take. There are many powers, graces and misfortunes in our world that can be harnessed to improve one’s self, but […]
