Sex, Drugs, Rock &Roll.
Those three things made MTV everything it was and is. Made it everything that our parents said should not exist. MTV glorified debauchery and the con-artist. Took everything that was wrong with the world and put it in your face and said it would liberate you. I am made to sigh heavy nowadays cause I think of all of my friends from my teenage years and wonder how they are getting along now. Are they stuck in some gutter or divorced from there wives and husbands, or are they living good lives and teaching there children to stay away from the pitfalls that seemed to entice and take up our lives as children. The canvas was always my way to reflect my thoughts and insights on paper.
Just the other day I was listening to a preacher go back and forth about what is expected of us as men and women. We are not to seek riches of this world or to do the things of this world that is evil. Evil being relative to offending ones neighbor, The rich man will not make it to heaven because he spent his life in pursuit of the three things MTV stood for, yet we all know our world has determined that these are the standards of success. You are considered, "saved when you live a moderated life." Only who determined that?
It was this dissatisfying standard of living that sent me on my journey in the first place. I had nothing and no one would assist me because I could not pay an offering. Only in having nothing did I realize my soul mattered, yet we are made to believe that in having anything we are greedy sinners. Is this right? A chemical romance does not solve anything yet how many have lived that way for ten plus years, even if they are addicts some shrink will call them that cause they allow it to take too much of there time. Some day someone will say my art and the time I spend on it, is from a deranged mind, much as the said Beethoven was deaf.
Follow my leading though...when you are on the path to something great don't allow even the preacher (whom is supposed to be the Voice of God) to dissuade you...instead everyday make sure they know your NAME!
