KungFu Panda is too cool- who would have ever thought you can learn so much about life from a turtle in kids movie. This maybe a personal favorite ( the fighting is good too)

Dont you just love being wrong?

I think in a song, a man (or women) once said, " If loving you is wrong, then I never want to be right".

"Though I speak with tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.
And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understanding all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing,
And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.
Love suffers long..."

The greatest performance

The piece was called "My Past",
The key was set without faith, creating no tonal center,
The time signature was the reoccurring
The constant pulse of things done wrong,
Though the piece started on the down beat, the performers look to the audience to perceive whether its music was aesthetically pleasing, yet ignoring the dynamics.
The conductor stood in front, trying to grab their attention, waving his arms, however, their heads were too embedded within the stand, trying to make since of the piece
and yet, when it seemed as if modulation
was present, there would only be repeat signs every few bars

The final cadence was deceptive

The performers stood to take to what they thought was an unconvincing bow, and were only met by a few hand clap from what was largely a packed house...

Though the concert of my life started with a piece that was given by the spur of the moment, - this performance was far from over and was eminent of being the greatest of concerts ever performed.

"Givin hope to all those senior citizens"

Sunday, November 16, 2008


If faith is the gas that keeps the car running,
then within the destination rests the hope of one day seeing
land as only the birds do

Without a destination, there may be no reason to go anywhere
Without hope, whats the point of having faith?

The Cosby's

Its funny, I use to love watching the Cosby show- and I still do when the re-runs come on. Something about it- yeah it may have been a little too perfect for some, but to me it just always put a smile on my face. I think maybe it was just the thought of what a good black family could look like; a father and mother who worked hard to make a living and created a family that they really loved. The kids, maybe not as real as today's standards, but it was still cool to see innocents. I think the fact that the show seem not to have any hidden motive but a honest belief in black family at it best was most appealing.
I would have to say that it was one of my all time favorite shows growing up. Yeah, some would say "far from reality", yet I think on some level most could say that the show was pretty cool- or maybe not (all depends on what vantage point you hold). Nowadays, there are a lot of family shows out, but nothing really like the Cosby show. Funny thing about the show is that it made many feel right at home and when it went off, it kinda left many feeling like, "what's next?"
The Reality is all things must come to an end (even in show business). For some, even though you know it many never air again with new episodes, I think for those who really loved it, it would be awesome to see just one more season.- call it a little wishful thinking

For some it was like watching a dream. For others,watching a reality and living a dream.

Realization of sound

Today and the last couple days, I have noticed some reoccurring themes- your talent/purpose/gift and God being the answer to all things.
At First at church, the pastor was talking about stuff like living your purpose, removing things that hinder you to that purpose and not giving up. Secondly, today I went to a really interesting seminar that was about under achievement and lost of motivation with school students. Thirdly, I talked to my mother this morning who gave me some really good advise about how God has to be an important aspect of my life in order to go anywhere. Finally Four, I had a conversation with Sam the the sushi man at the sushi bar. who I just met and was who was telling me how he gets a lot of music majors who wish and dream of doing something big with music, only to end up at red lobster trying to make ends meet.
Draw your own conclusions, but I see some things that seem to be a little more than arbitrary.

what color do you see?

About two days ago I had the chance to visit a special education class in an middle school. It was pretty cool because honesty I have always had this idea about special education class and students- Students that are hard to comprehend or possibly look a little different etc... (not to say that there are not those who may have a disability similar to that) but the kids at this school looked rather normal and the classroom like any other. To be quite honest one might not really be able to pick up on the children's disability at first glance. If they didn't know what they were looking for in this classroom they would miss the fact that every child in the class had some form of EBD-a emotional behavioral disorder- simply put: the issue has a lot to do with things coming from the inside; feeling, thoughts, etc... In essence, very fragile children emotionally- and it displays itself though a variety of ways- acting out, getting an very serious attitude, becoming very quite, yet all to an extreme level that a child without the disability might not show

I had an epiphany today (and this might sound a little strange because most probably have figured this out)....
People are different
Now you might ask, "Um, duh what took you so long?"
Well, as easy as it is to say, ( because I have said it may times) understanding that concept was ( and still is at times) a hard thing to really live with. The idea that people go through different experiences in there life I understood, but understanding how an experience effects someone is difficult, and probably impossible for most.
Its like trying to see a color you have never seen before. Yeah I experienced, the joys of orange and yellow, the sadness of blue, the loss of tan the anger/rage of red, the unknowns of black, the intense love of turquoise -and so on.
But what about those colors I haven't experienced? are there colors outside of this? what does ultraviolet feeling go through, and would I recognize Gama red if i saw it? or better yet can I see it for the human eye can only see a certain range of color?
I might be a certain shade ( or maybe "shades" depending on what you have seen) Lets call me a nice shade of blue (navy to be more specifically) and with a slight hint of crimson- because it there, but just very subtle. What this means possibly is that everything I see out of my color scope will be have either a tint of blueish quality or many be crimson. More specially, when it comes to people, I will only be able to relate to those to with the same or similar color and yet give every other color that's not those two colors, either a navy or crimson tint, ultimately changing the color together.

I guess it all boils down to perspective.

I guess this would be a begininng, right?

So I was definitely apprehensive to this whole blogging thing- Girlfriend has one, -she told me about it. Honesty, thought stuff like this was just for girls ( You know, gotta get their emotions out right?) No real man Blogs!! But now the more I think about it, this thing might do some good- maybe for others and for at least my self.
Funny thing is that I knew that somehow I would need an outlet, some platform to speak on- whether it be to a person or a notebook, or even a computer screen. I have way too many thoughts that wiz by and not enough time to process them ( you see, there goes one right well at least not right now, but you get my point- it sure did sound good though) But the point is, there are many things that go on in my mind, may thoughts, ideas etc... like a tv that continues to change the channel. having a way to stay on one channel might not be a bad thing. And a side note: we all think- dudes to, maybe girls just do better at finding the right medium to get it out before it crashes.
well we will see were this goes...
