S'goin on everybody? Chillin? Cool.
I want to talk about hurricanes, if you couldn't ascertain from the title of this piece.
Actually,more accurately,I want to talk about an urban legend regarding hurricanes.
I want to talk about the idea that the formation of, to the path of every hurricane...ever,is the same path that slave ships took so many hundreds of years ago. I see that some of you look puzzled,some of you even look troubled. Look I know nobody wants to talk about slavery because of all that guilt and shame but I am the one writing so suck it up stop your bitchin and keep reading!
Sorry for yelling but you don't make this easy,it's bad enough I have to bring this up in the first place. Listen I know that it might be a stretch but honestly it is way more plausible than some of the stories you've been told over the years, so loosen up.
There is a wide range of the general public that believe in many of the urban legends that have been told over the years and it seems that there is a new one everyday but this one is special.
I think it is special,especially in the climate of the nation (USA) and in some cosmic way the world,since we are all connected,even if we are too stoopud to see that.
I think it is special because it is visually stunning and is an astounding representation of the power of nature,of how powerless man can actually be held and held in check. The awesome and mind numbing destruction and it's aftermath,how lives of people are changed forever.
Then there is the super-natural aspect of what the legend adds to it. The souls of the enslaved who did not survive the long, painful, physically and emotionally torturous journey are now creating their own destruction. Destruction that in turn shows "we the people" just how important or unimportant we are deemed by our "government."
How is it you ask I can tie politics into this topic? Well I was not the first to do it I would answer. Remember Katrina? Well now there's a new hurricane in town and his name is Ike and Ike hit Texas. This has led to the largest search and rescue mission in the history of Texas,no such luck in New Orleans,a place I am sure was a port for slave ships. If you look at a map you will recognize where all such ports were back then. Once you realize that,then you can move on to the hurricanes' paths...see?
In the midst of a presidential election in which we have the first black candidate for the presidency, issues that have psychologically screwed this nation up for hundreds of years are still not being addressed. On the one hand the old guy (Mcain) has no reason what so ever to discuss these issues and on the other hand the black guy (Obama) has to be very careful how he treads.
Nonetheless it is still my belief that much like ghost hunters,ufo,Elvis,Tupac and Biggie sightings okay well maybe not the last three but many of these so called urban legends need more exploration. Why some of them are not is easy to answer. It is because of what the consequences entail. If it were widely accepted that hurricanes follow along the same path as slave ships then we the people would have some serious repairing to do on many levels,not that we don't already. Honestly I am still waiting for my forty acres...fuck the mule.
Okay so maybe hurricanes isn't really what I am talking this point I'm not even sure but what I do know for sure is that it is a fact that all hurricanes start on the coast of Africa approximately where all the ships started and when you consider the paths that they all take...isn't it ironic? Or maybe it's karma...or maybe it's the souls of those enslaved who did not make it here...or did they?

You are gonna die!!!!!

I'd like to start of by saying that like many of us who bother to put our thoughts into these magic boxes full of wires and electricity for whomever to see, this is my rehabilitation...welcome.
I have stated the obvious. You are in fact going to die. You just don't know when and it is this that we fear. The unknown of it all. As fuched up as life can be death must be a vacation because life is a bitch of a job. Even for those who are comfortable. I mean it must be very hard to keep other people from getting too anything that you want to keep them away from. After a while wouldn't it be almost impossible...eventually the dam has to break right?
Well I really feel like there is an irony in the way things are whizzing by us all...especially after 9/11..a subject that I don't really like talking about,honestly...honestly. But I feel like we all have been in a dream like state since then...just going about our daily lives in the midst of death all around us...the souls of those who lost there lives that day need to be fed and rested but the spectres of half truths,deceptions,misdirections,sidestepping and outright lies about the events of that day will not allow it...we pay for the death that we allow and each of those sacrifices demands justice and that justice is always another life.
What separates us in this "life" are the things that we create ourselves.
Everything else connects us but we are so busy fighting every war imaginable...crime,drugs,education,freedom (think about it) terror...the truth. The truth is that denial is also a state of America.
And all the creature comforts in the world will not help prepare you for the inevitable...sure they help you forget about the inevitable,deal with the living nightmare that is soften the harsh realities of the swirling man-made vortex of negativity and fear hanging over our heads that like ostriches we bury our heads and try to hide from.
I have good news though...there is a duality in it see,this much negativity could not grow with out hope being a result and a byproduct of that being action for change...the time is ripe for The Spiritual Evolution of Humanity...the time when we all begin to destroy our own fears and negativity from within,connecting and tapping into that universal energy that we all kill and destroy each other for in the first place...that power and connection to it all,so that you can release yourself and surrender with out fear into the unknown...the inevitable..
and if you can't or won't open your mind to it...well that's YI8Uuu.

Don't make me slap somebody!

Date: 2008-04-09, 12:54PM
Dear employers,
My name is Eric. I just go a call from a "talent agency".
The girl on the phone is named Chanel...sounds very much like she just got out of high school with absolutely no training in how to speak on a telephone like an adult doing a job for a business! Recently I had to visit a hospital,(Bellevue) the receptionist was also very much like Chanel no sensitivity training, no business decorum at all and this is a hospital!!!! I have more examples of the utter lack of business training, skills either social or even common these skills have been replaced by big boobs and pretty smiles..perhaps it is nepotism...maybe these girls are related to you point is simple,I sit here for what seems like weeks now looking for work..I see too many ads that require me to come into the city from Brooklyn when I could very easily send an electronic resume..but some of you are too lazy to check and answer your inbox,you'd rather have some hot chick walk in so you can stare at her boobs all day after you hire her no matter how little she is qualified. I am not saying that I am or have a Masters,BA or BFA,that I will make your business a fortune 500 over night but I can tell you that I am experienced in the workforce and my experience has taught me that I probably don't want to work for you're lazy,incompetent,arrogant and inconsiderate to think I have..nay..WE have the money to go traipsing around Manhattan everyday in the hopes to get hired on the spot... that is unless you got a nice rack..then you're guaranteed a job!!!
