Money Can Not Buy Community Respect

Do you guys ever notice how the election campaign is ran ? You go out and touch basis on what is going on in America. Getting to know different communities and how it is ran. The vices that set groups of people are faced with then you find a point to fix the problem. The power of communication and love are prevalent in most Campaigns that gives a killer sweep in elections. Understanding the voice of your people is a relevant thing that is missing in the hearts of people.  Although dollars are funded from big corporations, other politicians and so far. The money helps fuel a personality that is willing to inspire change within the world.

How would it look if I flaunt money in your face. Claiming I am some big shot coming here to save every one with no interaction or value of human life. I would be looked at as a target. The demonic devil who has no regard for life around me. Why would a community build their trust with me if I continued on doing this ? Instead it punishes people even more causing chaos in the hearts and mind of men. Money does not buy respect. Respect in my world is one of the strong foundations of building love. In order to succeed in the realm of business, I must build interaction within community. This holds true when we have to build trust. It is more than a campaign slogan or a fancy logo. We have to real life sit back and care for the place we inhabit. Stop to take our ear to listen then we give a solution on how we can bridge gaps on making what is wrong a better place. I think that is what makes Donald Trump not a respected figure head among people of economic decline, minority or people that celebrates liberalism. In fact he is the definition of someone who binds into the greed of money. Talking the power of a dollar and keeping the riches that “America” has build for it-self. Yeah it is a great talk for those that believe China is pimping us out of trade and immigrants are stealing from us.

Really the answer is bridging the gap in communities across an even keel so people can swim the shores of our economic rise we promise on our soil.

Stop And Re-word Depressed

More than forty-million adults suffer from depression according to Anxiety And Depression Association Of America.  Half of the people that have diagnoses of anxiety are left untreated. People that checks in the hospital due to high stress levels are often kept under diagnosis for psychiatric care. How many people are going to go through this epidemic we call depression ? With numbers that are daunting I personally found ways depression can be overcome through personal observation and experience.

I believe depression triggers from worrying inside our mind. Actually depression may be a sign of genius. Are brains are here for us to feel, see, and create. I believe it is all in how we channel thoughts for a positive out-come in our reality. Some Americans may feel stuck, waiting for that next success to break though. Maybe depression comes to finding a healing point from a traumatic experience we felt deeply. Depression is a sign of our mind working out realities we are unhappy with. I believe balancing out Depression is finding the root reason of why we are depressed first. You can not find a cure if you do not know what triggers this disease that attacks you.

As a doctor, I can diagnose all kind of medicines that will try and raise dopamine levels. A natural chemical in the brain that is suppose to come from natural stimulation. Now if you a n*gga in the hood going through stresses, like real life stresses. You often turn to unhealthy coping mechanisms or even let the pressures that surround you over take. When in reality depression can be eased by ridding of toxic people. Toxicity can be felt by those who are not willing to see you strive on the next goal you reach. People who down-play what you are doing, constantly judging with a magnifying glass with-out offering solutions on what can help you out. Being stuck inside of a hell-hole job with a boss that is over demanding. Doing daily routines just to make ends meet. A trap us as Americans do not have a choice but to fall into. Families not being valued at the utmost, leaving people feeling isolated and alone. This also applies for friend based relationships to. We live in such a fast paced world we often question ones self-identity on how to keep up.

Depression can be fixed in my opinion(if you are clinically sane), by changing the narrative of your story. The law of attraction is a very true statement. You ever felt like your soul has been so deeply poisoned, negative thoughts over-take your being. You felt so deeply poisoned you became the Squidward sitting behind your stationary work place waiting for that hour of excitement. In that case, attracting unfortunate circumstances with your deary outlook on life. Focus on your path and live out your desires to the fullest. No I would not say you are depressed. I think you may be unsatisfied with the situation of what is going on around you. Do not let money define you’r happiness because it sure in the hell will not buy self-respect. You want to wake up in the morning feeling fulfilled to accomplish what your heart desires. I believe that is why we mourn so deeply at a funeral. We never gave chances on how life would be if we embraced our hearts desire. We often give are will away a lot of the time, not knowing the full potential of what this fire holds. Knowing this, become the best person you can be then the human being that holds stability will follow.

Paying R-E-S-P-E-C-T To Iconic Singer Aretha Franklin

Aretha has a soulful sound that is defying to our human ears. I do not even think our current generation ears will be use to hearing a sound very pure and powerful. Her singing can command people as if she was to stand atop a mountain summit giving a speech of woman empowerment. When hearing people like her, you wonder where did the soul go in most of our people today. During the civil rights era that took place her break out record was recorded over Otis Redding Respect. People marched and riot to that song. The song she made reflected an out-cry that most African-Americans wanted during that time. Respect for our rights being here on US soil. She sung at Martin Luther King speeches, helping Doctor King raise the spirits of the people fighting the injustice they were going through at that time.

Being an artist bred out of Motown, she had a street named after her in our great city Detroit. Close to Detroit’s Music Hall of Performing Arts, where other acts perform at still on this day. She is an inspiration for people that are faced with trial and tribulations they had coming up. She let the gifts god gave her shine through on the day we reckon of riots and destroying community property in Detroit. She has been a great gift in the eyes of other people. She stood for being a woman of power. Fighting for the rights owed to you as a human being. Coming from a broken family home, she did not let that stop her in sharing who she was and what she stood for.

Culture Lab Detroit Brings A Fresh Air of Creativity To The City

Last year during 2017, Matthew Angelo Harrison brought together an exhibit that used 3D printing. He collected old artifices he found and had his homemade 3D printer recreate them. Culture Lab Detroit presented public work pieced together by Gary Simmons. His artwork consist of piecing together musical flyers of different genres that held a political message and context that is taken place on pop culture.  The creative energy that Culture Lab Detroit is offering for our city is inspiring for the youth that are creative entrepreneurs on the rise.

This year modern art renaissance became a forefront on Detroit’s Narrative as Culture Lab Detroit reveals new work for this up-coming year. October 11th-12th will highlight artist of different background having public discussion around the topic, “Crisis of Beauty”. The event will also be attended by Peter Weller, who had a lead role in the 1987s block buster Robo Cop. This event will also include many other panels that showcases progressive Detroit.

I am personally excited for this different kind of progression Detroit is seeing. Creative work is bursting like streams of light within the city’s recovering period we are seeing. It also gives the inner-city youth something positive to come and enjoy. Bringing great enlightenment in the young-minds that starve for great wisdom.

Soundcloud and Independent Artist

Soundcloud is one of the best platforms the music scene has been graced with. Allowing for independent acts to market themselves at a budget that is inexpensive. We have seen many acts blow in recent times thanks too the power of Soundcloud.  The major downside too Soundcloud is that it offers no powerhouse features that can help a person grow their rate. I think Soundcloud intention was to have a place for artist too drop their music on. Instead artist are choosing on the use of major streaming platforms. In the rat race of streams, Soundcloud decided to cater more toward an artist budget and connections. Also the way Soundcloud is set up, we ask ourselves, “why is the what is trending page on Soundcloud identical to the last five songs I heard on my radio station.”. This platform should sprinkle a little more to independent artist and not a record label.

I think artist these days are seeking interaction between one individual to another. If Soundcloud added a feature allowing other independent  artist to work with another independent artist in a project file. Fan bases would grow at a rapid rate, endorsing a open creative space and the middle finger too record label budgets. Also the app in it self  seems a bit clunky, it is not as intuitive as it can be and it is harder too find one of my favorite artist on the grind.

With music having a lot of variety and sub-genres. I think adding a sub genres page would be beneficial for a lot of artist. Right now, Soundcloud is over-filled with struggle bed room artist that has over one-hundred likes. It makes it hard for a talent scout too put together a project. Finding people that are even worth the time. The struggle artist I am talking about are over Youtube beats and no hopes of talent. I think if this platform can figure out a way for people to filter out good content, the independent scene will skyrocket for many artist. I do not think it is a good idea for me to be able to buy likes and follows for people to even consider my art good. When in reality it is over-inflated numbers doing the job for me.

I think the up-side too this platform is that it is great start for pushing yourself out there. It is a free outlet after-all. But if I am a consumer choosing too upgrade, I should have a marketing kit at my finger tip and more leads to other independents in my scene. Upgrading on this platform should help give artist a platform to push their talent out even further.

T / / E O is back at it again with another Trill mix

T / / E O brings us another Dj Mix that resonates on a different wave this time. This one starts out more percussion driven. Still it has a laid back atmosphere Bizniz starts off with. This vibe brings about a ride around and smoke box in your moms mini van. T / / E O always blends his music together perfectly. I would say the first half of this mix is more instrumental based. Sacrificing the vocals for more ambiance. This DJ Mix is for the person that lights their spliff. While they take a load off their mind as the music plays with their thoughts dialogue.

 

The Married Life Ain’t For Everyone

You ever heard the term why settle for less ? Being in a relationship is great. You can build a home together. Start a family and give each other economic support and comfort. You guys do not even have to worry about the stresses of life. You found the perfect person. Someone who is willing to help mold and build you’r dreams. Then you found out they are not happy. This person wants to explore the world and feel something different. They want to see a change.  They got tired of doing the same mundane everyday they wake up. A new experience is calling them. Tired of sharing the same things, they want to live life on the edge.

A person never got a chance for an experience of their lifetime. They still have not accomplished all their goals they been wanting to since high school. They feel an urge to do something different in their life. That is when you see wifey dressed up bout to hit the club everyday. That is when you bout to see the man that is the dream of your eyes get big purchases. You guys are in your early thirties already going through a midlife crisis.

When we are in our early twenties that is when you have to have the biggest adventures of your life. Why be happy with the person you are settling your life in with when there is different subsections to life you are willing to explore. You might miss out on certain life experiences if you choose to settle with this someone. Going through a harsh break up is not the end of the world people. It is a chance to re-define your soul so you can become a new person. Waiting to break out of the shell you was once in. Maybe that might make the relationship you was doing in the past; become stronger.
