I dont have a whole hell of a lot invested in this blog. It was simply a concept that I'd thought up and designed in my head. I was at a place in my life where I had a lot of free time. I was spending hours everyday surfing the web, consuming content and leaving comments on other peeps blogs. I was spending all day searching for new music, literature and other forms of art. I figured I might as well spend my time more constructively and try to contribute something to the blogosphere, instead of always taking. I thought I would translate my love for pop culture, art, music, politics, philosophy, ect. through the power of the blog. I wanted to collect all those subjects and spit out some social commentary. I thought maybe my point of view, opinions, and thoughts could offer up some entertaining and interesting insight into what is "hip." I dreamt of becoming an internet celebrity or starting a popular blog or relevant website. I really just wanted to get rich. Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined my blog would take me so far away from any monetary gain. Seriously Hip has become everything it wasn't suppose to be. Personal, neglected and far from hip. It's more like a journal. Or, "a place where I can gather my interests and express my thoughts." Eventually I would like to start a blog or website like I described. But for now, this is going to remain the place where I vent my frustrations, share my happiness and make an ass of myself. I am rebranding though. Changing a few things up. Its almost been a year and I hope you've enjoyed reading what I write as much as I've enjoyed writing it. Thanks!
Effing A....these breaks and spaces are starting to piss me off....seriously?!?! take this, it'll hold you over till I get everything switched up.
famous shame/shameless fame
i came here in search of something sacred.
something i could hold onto, something permanent.
attached to numbness
i cant feel my feet
walking barefoot down the city streets.
multiple revelations turn into suffering after hearing your, shhhhhhhhh.
in a life defined by beginnings and ends
in a place where your forgotten as quickly as your swept away
this time i'm doing it for real.
i'm leaving my mark upon your forehead.
if i fall
it will be without you.
sprawling downtown intersections with your loose frame and lanky limbs.
oh you lovely people
we cherish your existence
and your dedication to the preservation of our infrastructure and roads....(it's really quite impeccable)
just blessed I can be one with something
when grazing alleys
asking fellow walkers how far it was today that they walked
why did you even get out of bed
why are you walking when you should be running
forcefully into abandoned buildings overcome by rats and thieves lying in piles of garbage collected by the spirits of too many, 1:29 a.m. liquor store runz.
just to escape the house it took so many years to build.
my house is in order.
my lot is clean
my chin is up
leaning back into the soft hands kept around to comfort and let you know exactly how special you are
possessing a uniqueness that only a human individual can
a likeness just like hers
an image i portrayed in filth and corruption
plastered on power line poles
lying on a bed of hate and judgment
only left to self examination
leading to extermination.
