indianboy_thanksgivingthat I’m afraid to be too personal.  There’s a mystique about being thought provoking and relatable, yet still remaining a mystery…do you agree? But isn’t that what a blog is for? getting personal and letting your ‘readers’ get to know you and your thoughts?  Perhaps you’re learning more about me in this own little reflective piece right here, without even me telling anything about myself?  Deep, huh.  Anyway, happy thanksgiving to all, I hope everyone has a most fantastic splendiferous lovely feastful enjoyable thanksgiving, as I’m about to have.

So now, I am thankful to those who have been reading and enjoying my own little very personal yet not too personal blog!

Our work is never over

banskyWhile there are many things I’d like to write about right now, I feel quite fixated on how real and epic the climate of our country is lately.  So very much, that I feel like in my lifetime, the weight of our outside world and need to survive has never felt so…heavy.  Sure, I’m only 23, so life’s weights have been lifted by other’s for the majority of my life (thank you mom and dad), but this is a tough “real world” to enter, even after a year or so within it.  

While times are tough, there is something quite romantic about it, and I find peace in that, in feeling so alive, in feeling the personal and collective struggle of gettin’ by and survivin’.  In fact, there’s no better time in the world than now to appreciate the good things we are fortunate enough to have.  Family that would help you in a time of need, your health, your friends – we are all in it together, we all feel it together, and I think there is something to really embrace as a society about that.  What hurts you only makes you stronger.

The talk of the town

dark-knightRemember when the one and only topic of mass media consumption was The Dark Knight?  When the only concern was how long you’d be willing to wait in line to see the best movie of all time?  When you’d see it four times to just make sure you caught every amazing moment, over and over again? Not only was it the utmost of obsessive behavior on a personal level, but it reached a national and international level as well.  For one month, curious audiences were held captive by the mystique of this film on screen, and the mystique of this film’s terrible luck off screen.  For one month, you could go up to anyone in the country and the question would be “have you seen it yet?” (And if you hadn’t at the time, you oughta soon).  For one month, Americans were obsessed.  And then, another month came along…people had seen the movie…people had heard the behind-the-scene stories….and BAM! A new focus!  The 2008 election!  We have found a new national trend!  obama4A new topic of discussion!  A new national obsession!  But this time, a race to the finish line of who will be the next president.  Everywhere you went signs line the streets…strangers arguing over who is easier on their taxes…people dressed as presidential candidates on Halloween.  Our country, saturated by this new fascinating commonality, just as much as they were once fascinated by the mystique of The Dark Knight.    So, there seems to be a trend here.  Americans, nation-wide, seem to be interested in the same things for roughly the same amounts of time.  Americans like to have one over-riding topic that the homeless guy in Harlem and the Financier in Mid-town can have an opinion on.  Americans appreciate the bond that is created by this phenomena, and Americans, subconsciously, will continue this pattern in order to get through the hussle and bussle of our everyday lives.  But, after about a month or so, we get bored.  I mean, I’ve been over The Dark Knight for quite some time now, and I’m just about over the whole electrion drama…so what’s next?  What will we all talk about next?  The economy? depressing.  The weather? drab.  I don’t know, soon enough well all know, because it will be the talk of the town….



Bumper stickers are classy and clever and passive aggressive

 My favorite is “I’m hung like Einstein and smart as a horse.”  Although, “take revenge, shit on a pigeon” has a nice ring.  Enjoy!
