Slifer The Sky Dragon was a ferocious deity sealed away inside a stone tablet. Atem had this as his stead then to be inherited by Yugi Mutou on the search to gain back the pharaohs memories. This card having been introduced In the battle city arch, was seen as Yugi’s first god card. The original adaptation of Slifer The Sky Dragon was meant to be Osiris The Sky Dragon. Which is a pharaoh that was overseer of the Afterlife and underworld.
Osiris lead his people from great famine, creating fertility among the crops. People during this time believed in ritualistic children sacrifices. Heartache and confusion with people spirituality took a great toll on the land. Making it hard for their country men to prosper. The god Osiris risen, showing people how to take advantage of their soil. He single handily reverse curses of past rituals, stopping child killings. At the end of it all Osiris met an end. Only to be killed by Set. Jealousy took control of the heart, leading Osiris to an unfortunate end.
Slifer The Sky dragon is an adaptation of Osiris. The qualities that make up the character Osiris is an unique one. He only wanted to protect his people and is described as a protagonist in his story. Yugi Mutou has the same qualities that would make up a pharaoh looking after his people. Offering protection and guidance during the perils of battle. Only to turn out victor at the end of it all. Also the person that killed Osiris has a name familiar to Yugi’s main rival, Seto Kaiba. Both of them fight it out, only to fulfill their inner most desire, Being The King of Duels. Kaiba animosity toward Yu-Gi had no ends. As Kaiba would go through great length just to receive great power, only for Yu-Gi to be able to beat him in the end.
Darkseid was created by Jack Kirby for his New Gods series that aired in 1970. Darkseid is a god in Apokolips, controlling people eliminating the power of free will. Darkseid strength was able to go against Super-Man and The Holy Genesis. Darkseid rules with an iron fist over Apokolips. Even after being brutally beaten by Super-man and tossed down to his nation. The people mobbed around him looking like they we’re ready to attack. Instead Super-man exclaims, Darkseid is finish, you may do your will to him. Instead, they pick him up then carried him off into his kingdom. Only to halt his people, so he can tell Super-man that he is a god to his people. Darkseid has eyes that are melting to the flesh. No literally, he can stare at you and melt any human who stands in his way. Super-Man was almost killed because of Darkseid power. Instead, Super-man grabbed gravel off the ground then shoved it into Darkseid’s face until the room imploded from the two opposing power-forces.
Darkseid would be comparable to Madara. Both have special eye gifts that grant them unnatural abilities in their universes. Both characters have a will to control all of man kind. Believing that their control will make all of humanity better. The confidence inside of both characters come from many of hard battles. Darkseid battled against The New Genesis, waging war until a truce was finally called. Making alliance’s by exchanging their first born within their family heir. Madara has the same kind of method. Fight a bloody war until the last one victors out on top. The difference between the two, Madara’s intentions are completely passionate. With the loss of his little brother, Izuna , he lost all sanity. Both sides suffered causalities losing a family member of their own. Darkseid was purely ego, he wanted to rule all of the universes with his will. Darkseid is considered the God Of Evil in the DC Universe.
I first discovered Terra Lightfoot from the single, No Hurry. I was quite impressed by the songs up-beat tempo and vocals I find unique. The song has no consequences when you enjoy the powerful vocals passionately exclaiming there is No Hurry. The song lyrics remind you of a love ballad. Showing us a very troubled affair that can’t escape from your mind. The song claims that they have an eternity to spend together so it is no hurry. Enjoy the time that is spent with each other even though there are troubles on the path.
Their latest album “New Mistakes”, Terra Lightfoot release a video for their song, “Ruthless”. This single compared to No Hurry has more of a slowed tempo with elements of country. The lead singer hits a falsetto as she sings about her hard-core love she have for someone. The visuals for this song has her in a room by herself strumming a guitar. Walking through a snow-storm. The video shows her band members absent and she sits down as memories of them play on a dated B&W television. Could this song be expressing the love she has for her band members and them not being there.
It is a lost dream in a place where divorce happens quite frequently. We believe we are strong enough to bare so much weight on our own shoulders. Can you believe in a context within society that says if you are an a**hole, you are more attractive. The nerve of people right ? When in reality the law of attraction pays off and you attract more people that bleeds the same a**holeishness as you. Some people I had a conversation with say that they are jealous of the people that they been together with since high school. I was one of those people who shared the same sentiment.
Can you imagine living up to sixty-years. Old in the face and grey in the hair ? Not knowing the true definition of love in a stable foundation. Only to be left alone old and sick, without no support. Of course, you do not want someone there for you just so your needs can be taken care of. You want someone there for you because they chose to fight through the storm with you. I want a significant other who is willing to walk on my battles with me. A friend and a confidant who I can lean on. Someone who I can slow down the outside world with, cause our world is filled with kindness and infection. Who wants to have something unstable in their life ? In the end I know where this will lead me. Down a road with no one who does not really care. People who are here just to use, not utilizing each others full potential in order to succeed for an ultimate goal consistent of; happiness, financial security, for an successful outcome beyond eons of my generation.
With the corruption happening inside of the Republican party: Donald Trump continues to lose in public favor. MTV has had enough and decide for a political stance. Urging our younger demographics to rage out in the voting booth. As we have felt powerless for a long time, MTV as a media outlet chose to emphasis the control voting has. Although their stance is not bias, it is favoring Democrats efforts into alluring more young adults into voting. MTV plans to bring in about one-thousand people to take a vote. MTV even has support by people of political power, channeling investments into their pockets. This will also increase the strength of the stance they are taking.
With Donald Trump not giving a F**** about global issues and mining the world out of precious resources. While also, blaming immigrants for the reason America is losing, when some of had to work and they came here with nothing. Trump also added Salt in the womb. The Me Too movement that is happening right now, highlighted him as a president in the past downplaying woman as sexual objects. This man is the reason why we are failing as a country. We was outraged on social media and did not to take a stand to vote, in the end we failed. MTV wants this generations voice to be heard for an impact that will save us for the times of tomorrow. MTV as an outlet believes in people being their authentic selves. Embracing unity and diversity in our fifty-states we live in. This media company has always been the strength of what is popular. Take a stand with our countries favored media outlet and go vote today.
Bubblerap is an artist that hails from London. She garnered an audience in music after releasing songs that gave the internet a frenzy. Her sound is a mix of lo-fi with the skeletal body of Erykah Badu and Curtis Mayfield. I would put her music in a realm where Aquemini and Common’s Like Water For Chocolate had a baby then birthed her creations. Sprinkled in lo-fi mixes that would make a smoked out college dorm seem like heaven between two lovers. Bubblerap music is for the backdrop of a person that does not want to deal with useless rumination between partners. They simply want to enjoy a natural gift the universe has brought them together to enjoy: relaxing in a bed of Daffodils watching clouds pass them by.
The song that caught my attention of this artist was the song, “Other Side Of The Game”. The song remixes Erykahs Badu song, “Other Side Of The Game”. There are still noteable differences that separates her from contemporaries. With her Reverb soaked vocals that creates a vibe giving you imagery of water drops. Making a romantic condensation forming on your window seal. Her producer Eun makes sure to bring the elements of her vibe full circle. The slowed down production enunciating the keys played in the original sample, did this track justice. You can check the song out below and follow her on Instagram at demaemae.
