When I first heard about Jack Osbourne and his MS diagnosis earlier last week I have to admit I couldn’t believe it. Jack has changed so much over the years as a person that I would have never expected anything like this to happen to a guy like him. He has really had to prove himself over the years to the point that by doing so he really did achieve this type of make over of a new and improved him which so many people were just amazed by! To sum it up he really did look like he just “grew up” where as going back to the beginning he wasn’t really all that young to begin with. You can tell however he just wanted to be looked at in a different light and a different way. This was one of the main reasons as to why my respect for him grew even more so when I saw the transformation he had made. The fact that he now has MS does not really make me think any less of him and I say that in regards to the fact that I don’t think something like this will hold him down or better yet just completely and utterly ruin his life forever. It is something which he will have to deal with but at the same time it does not mean that this is the end for him. I’m sorry that Jack has MS and I wish this never even happened, but at the same time Jack has been doing some pretty inspirational things with his life, his family, and now of course his new family! With that being said I think we will see Mr. Jack Osbourne once again show us all just what it takes in order to succeed and be prosperous in this world we live in! God bless you Jack and you will always have my humble support!





Senseless acts of violence on the rise.

21 06 2012

Houston as everyone knows has it fair share of violence as well as gang activity. Senseless acts of shootings as well as physical assaults have really been on the rise just within the last two years alone. This particular story however seemed to conjour up a bit more attention due to the fact it happened to involve a particular rapper who has been a part of the scene since ’98. “Trae Tha Truth” whose real name is Frazier Thompson III, is of course a Houston native who came up in a hard lifestyle in the city of Houston but has managed to build up his own type of credibility along with respect and reputation due to the fact that he speaks his mind from the heart along with his own personal experience. At the same time he has managed to keep his image, as well as his reputation, on the higher level of the recognition chain because he is such a strong advocate as well as a community youth supporter for his volunteering of at risk youth for the city of Houston. He has done so much that in 2006 Mayor Bill White went ahead and named July 22 as “Trae Day”. This is a good man people who will not let inner city violence get the best of him! He was wounded in this attack carried out on Wednesday morning, July 20th however don’t be fooled! This is a man who has lived around this type of lifestyle for quite a good number of years and he will keep moving on because that is what he does. He’s a survivor, and an experienced one at that. He already had one friend taken from him back in 2009 during his official day marking for the city which would have been a blow for anyone, but not for Trae. He believes in what he does which makes him stand out from the rest of the crowd, especially when you compare him to the rest of the City of Houston! If anyone out there has any information regarding this senseless act please don’t hesitate to call it in. It would only help to prevent this from happening again! The link below will take you to the Houston Chronicle website for this story.

An explanation of the Illuminate, and my last post.

24 05 2012

 

Adam Weishaupt, Illuminati

Hey everyone, what’s going on? I was just sitting here going over my last and most recent post when I figured I should probably explain some of my own thoughts on the subject I was talking about. In my last note I basically touched up on the fact of the modern day conspiracy secret society known only as the Illuminati as well as Lady Gaga.

To get started, I think an important question which should be asked is “Do I believe that there is a secret society which is so influential and so powerful that it has the ability to help change or alter world events? Or better yet make it so that our world as we know it operates and functions on a day to day basis the way in which they see fit?” Well, the answer to that question is both a yes and a no to me but let me say why.

For starters I don’t believe there is a one such society, which only the most powerful people are a part of spanning from all different parts of the globe who are all connected in to this one organization. It just doesn’t add up for me. In other words, it is almost too perfect to even think about it along those terms. However with that being said, everyday people talk about the problems in the world and the major issues at hand which are attributed to the major industries and almost God like, as well as surreal, corporations which function perfectly fine on any given day. We talk about how bad things are because of them, how much control they have and how they are always getting away with wrongful acts and deeds. But at the same time I don’t think we are even realizing if we really know what we are talking about in the first place given the fact that anything can be happening behind the big “corrupt and powerful curtain” of the modern day world as we know it. I mean all of this stuff that we see going on on any given day could just be a smoke screen for the real problems at hand, but which we do not even know about simply because it is just so well hidden. Kind of like a subconscious mind trick from the upper powers at hand to trick us in to seeing what is really going on. Hopefully though that is not the case!

But going back to my question of the Illuminate presence. I think it is safe to say that if the whole entire concept of the Illuminate is just a myth being brought back to life but only in our imagination through conspiracy theorist and such, then I think it is safe to say that the reason for this is not because paranoid activist running around trying to scare up everyone over some cult they have never seen or heard of, but because the actions of the said culprits whom I was describing before are really giving the impression as well as all the signals that something more must be going on. In other words they are making the evidence so obvious that it really does look like to the average free thinker that some type of organization secret organization, must be controlling all of this. That is what I think really does fuel this misconception of the group such as the Illuminate being alive and well today. It’s the magnitude of things not just happening right now, but of things to come.

Now one more interesting fact or note before I close this whole thing up. A different question to ask is “Did the Illuminate ever really exist at all?” And the answer to that question ladies and gentlemen is a very solid YES! The history of the shadowy group itself dates all the way back up until almost the late 1700’s in various parts of Europe. It was founded by a man named Adam Weishaupt who founded the Bavarian Illuminati, very first and original set. They even had all types of help as well as thoughts, ideas and also members from the legendary as well as iconic Freemasons. The history of this society really is interesting and also in depth, however I won’t bore you with all types of facts and opinions. If you really want to know more then just click on the link below. It is the Wikipedia page for the Illuminate. Well that’s about it for me! I hope you enjoyed my little behind the scenes view of what I think of this, let’s just say, very questionable organization. Good bye for now and thanks!

The Illuminati and the modern day reinvention.

24 05 2012

(The article this post is referring to is in the link at the very bottom)

Ok, first off I’m posting this little blog linked to this one site simply because I am not too fond of the Illuminati myth and legend. In fact if they really do exist and are not some made up myth, (or if it is maybe just a name given to cover to a bunch of deranged, filthy rich, know nothing  old geezers) then I think they are a pretty strange and creepy bunch. Not so much in a good old happy, joking, good friend, Addams Family style type of sense. I mean in a “they need to get the hell out of the USA” type of sense! Or better yet just be disbanded entirely altogether. Now I’m not going to go off the deep end with every singly conspiracy theory ever made or accusation but I will say this. If they think they have not only the authority but the overall God-given right to choose as well as decide what they think and feel is best for the human race then guess what, they are about to be proven so wrong! It just amazes me what super filthy deranged rich people who sit back in the dark and think they can not only get away with anything, but also that if they just pull the wool over everyone else’s eyes then low and behold they will eventually get their way. This train of thought is not right, it is unacceptable and it needs to stop! Otherwise they are just setting themselves up for failure.

Now this article was made a little while ago however it is still somewhat popular when it comes to Illuminati resistance. I simply like it because of the imagination along with the subject. This guy chose Lady Gaga as the supposed puppet for the whole organization which I thought was clever. I mean it makes sense to the point that for one, what the hell ever made Lady Gaga along with the modern day Corporate Entertainment World think that they could somehow conjure up some type of paper board cutout, incredibly bad copy of the mind wasted 1980’s or late ’70’s drug out Music Artist mind scene and make it become reborn  as well as universally accepted in today’s ultra conservative world? I mean seriously it’s a joke.

Now grant it the music along with the some of the videos are enough to make say the average middle to younger aged adult and teen kind of stop at least for a second and take notice, but aside from that come on. This little reinvention crusade and quest put into action by John Q Nobody up in the fiftieth floor of who gives a crap corporate whatever building with ties to so many other things besides music and TV is really beginning to fizzle out and just burn away completely like butter in a frying pan. And just because Mr. John Q has nothing but airheads around him, or her, all day anyways pretending that they too are all just so super smart and know exactly what the average person wants to see, hear, and do does not necessarily make it so! (by the way Gaga really is another term for airhead if you didn’t know that).

Look, all I’m trying to say is quit this baby style rip off routine of trying to reinvent anything that ever crawled or walk because to me in my point of view, Lady Gaga has got to be the worst attempt when it comes to trying to bring back a drug induced, crazy schizophrenic out of your mind music scene era. Watching her is like watching some adolescent teen walking out into the living room after raiding Mom’s early ultra cool hip style ’80’s days wardrobe from her drug induced club days and then walking around and pretending it’s her’s and always has been. It’s ridiculous! I just hope it stops and stops soon because you know what, lame ass dorks always get exposed hard when the truth comes out in the end.

Oh yeah and one more thing. If they really do exist, then screw the Illuminati!

Fog City Mavericks!

Cover of Fog City Mavericks (Starz Inside)

I was going through my Amazon list of movies and such to try and find something I was interested in and low and behold what did I come across! A documentary showing both the origins along with the masterminds and pioneers who not only helped build and shape The Bay Area of San Francisco in to the independent movie making scene that it is today, but also those same people who just simply call it home as well as the inspirations which helped them to create some of there most finest work to date. The title of the documentary is called ‘Fog City Mavericks”.

Now without going in to too much detail about the film itself, if you happen to know anything about the impact that the city has had on the modern day world of cinema along with the legendary names associated with it then you probably don’t need a run down of the list of people who take part in this film. However if you are not too familiar then don’t fret because I can assure you that the list of people who are interviewed in this documentary are one’s that just about everyone is familiar with. People such as Francis Ford Coppola, George Lucas, Clint Eastwood, Phillip Kaufman, Chris Columbus, producer Saul Zaentz, and Robin Williams are just a few of the names on the list. This documentary really is interesting in a way that it gives more background as to the impact San Francisco itself has had over the many years on not just so much the World of Arts and Entertainment, but also the American Culture itself in a whole.

I would definitely recommend this film for any up and coming or aspiring film student just for the pure and simple fact that it is the type of documentary that would help to motivate, inspire and educate the one’s who want to take on this line of work. Either that or at least give some more background of what it was like so many years ago in the independent film making scene and also some of the obstacles and what it took in order to make it in what was then considered such new and undiscovered territory.

Before I close this little post up I just wanted to mention that the link associated with it is the film itself in it’s entirety. It is located on Youtube of course but is not a pirated or rip off version. It is actually an official posting from Starzmedia and is posted for anyone who wishes to watch it for free! You can also watch it on IMDB and also HULU as well.

Kurt Cobain, the man we never knew.

(I started to just type in some quick personal thoughts in regards to this link for the Biography of Kurt Cobain. I’ve seen it before myself and for what it’s worth it’s good, just like all of the other one’s they have made. However while writing some things down I eventually turned this  in to all out nice sized little note/blog in regards to him taking his own life. So here is the link, since it is 1 day pass the anniversary of his death, to his Biography special. Also here is my note I wrote in regards to the whole thing as well! The link you will find at the bottom of this note.)

Call me old fashion but every time I think about Kurt Cobain and try to just reflect on his time here and all the great music he gave us, I always run in to this wall. That wall of course is the simple fact that he decided to end his own life. He just decided nothing and no one was even worth living for. Nevermind the fact he was a brand new father and nevermind the fact he had so many people who loved, admired and respected him. None of it mattered a thing.

Now I know his music along with the rest of Nirvana is being carried on to a next generation of alternative rock fans as well inspiring new artists to go out and create their own music, but to somebody like me, who was 13 years old at the time when he decided to take his own life, who first got my hands on the album Nevermind when I was 12 years old and living in a group home who from that point on decided that this was a perfect idea on how to view the world when it just takes the best it can from you. From somebody like me who would always try so hard to really stay in tuned with what Kurt was talking about and not caring about anything else, I just couldn’t believe what he had done.

However going back to when I was 12 and got my first copy of Nevermind, in as bad of a situation I was back when this album was released, you can believe me when I say this that this particular album along with this group and everything they did from that point on would just be a blue print for what at that time was considered modern day self destruction! A nice little album title now that I think about it, but the point is that if certain types of record and media company’s and outlets are going to try to start bringing back Kurt Cobain (besides the main reason and that is to make money) in a way so that newer generations can not only get a listen on him but also maybe be inspired to go out and create their own music ideas and such, then I guess that’s good. However no matter what type of sunshine ridiculous and lame anniversary promo sale they try to paint on this man who INTENTIONALLY AND ON PURPOSE decided to take his own life without giving any second thoughts about why he shouldn’t, then I’m just going to have to go ahead and object. The reason for this is because I can only take so much of the modern-day sales ad and marketing routine dance, which literally drives me to the point of just saying “I am not freaking stupid!”

Now I’d admit entire situation of when he killed himself was crazy and even sad, but ever since all of that happened and after talking to other people about it and growing up over the years while reflecting back on that day, it has become more clear than ever now that this selfish bastard really did hurt a lot of people, especially those close to him.

So with that all being said I hope somewhere, sometime and someplace Mr. Kurt Cobain really can help somebody become inspired to achieve their goals or to help them stay strong in their time of need because as far as the part of trying to make up for it goes, I personally do not think it can be done. He just hurt way too many people.

Girl With the Dragon Tattoo soundtrack review

4 04 2012

I thought I’d post this fan vid of the song “What if we could” by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross from the soundtrack “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”. I like a lot of the songs on this album, however this one in particular just stands out to me for some reason. I love the tone and melody to it.

In regards to the rest of the album I have to say that when it comes to the rest of the tracks, I pretty much like all of them. It’s kind of rare that I will find a movie soundtrack that will have so many tracks, or all of them, with the type of tone, style and mood which I prefer. In addition to that I think this truly is some of Trent’s finer work, the whole album of course. If you get a chance give it a listen.

Between being both a little up beat and artistic while at the same time maintaining that signature calm and smoothing sound, which I myself always traced back to Trent’s “FRAGILE” album days, really did in my opinion give the film the perfect touch. That along with the fact that the album also has on more characteristic or factor which was also really important and that is mysterious as well as an overall “stay away, dangerous” type of feeling and effect.

One more final note I wanted to add too before I go. If you haven’t read the books yet, or at least the first one, then I highly recommend you do. They are some of the most incredible pieces of work and if I had the chance, that is if it were at all possible, I would have loved to had meet Mr. Stieg Larsson either before he passed away or if he were still alive today. This is a man who not only dedicated himself to the idea of freedom of expression along with equality rights but also in so many ways incorporated it in to his work. I can only read about him and his achievements just like everyone else but I wonder if he were alive today what his current work might have reflected instead. This of course would be just something to ponder for now.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (OST by Trent Reznor – What If We Could)

If you happen to be a fan or admirer, here is the official site for Stieg Larsson. It’s an insightful little website giving just a little bit more of backdrop as to who the man was, what he has done and where he came from.
