Get Back to Work!

Life is a compromise, is it not? I would venture to say that none of us would devote eight to twelve hours a day in pursuit of the almighty dollar if it wasn’t necessary for survival. Unfortunately, the world we live in revolves around profit, and unfortunately, profit is God. The question is do we allow ourselves to be defined by a society that values profit above all else? And if not, how do we live an authentic life? How do we draw the line? I realize it’s much easier to just give in and say the hell with it, and by doing so become what we detest the most, but that’s probably not the best choice. And to be honest, I’m not sure I understand the questions, much less have any real answers. But one things for certain, I kept your attention long enough to read this post, and that’s kinda cool! Now enough of this feel good, liberal, hippie dippy bullshit! Get your ass back to work! Your boss needs a new Porsche!

Styx queen of spades

I've loved Styx since I was a little kid. I saved my chore money to buy this album. I was rocking out on my little turntable. Love this song

Pretty Happy.

Ever since I was a little kid all I have ever really wanted to do was play music. While all my other friends were playing with their star wars and G.I Joe action figures, I was busy going through my brothers record collection and forming make believe bands. For some reason I was always the lead singer and rhythm guitarist, not sure why I didn’t fancy myself as a lead guitarist, but I didn’t and that’s okay. I mean we all have our little quirks, right? Still, it’s kind of strange. If your going to the trouble of forming a make believe band, and booking a make believe world tour, wouldn’t it make since to be the lead guitarist as well as the lead singer? Dream big, right? Today I am the lead singer and rhythm guitarist for a pretty good little band, and though we don’t go on world tours, or have legions of devoted fans, I’m still pretty happy with the whole thing.

What the hell, people?

Life is full of compromises, or so were told. I guess it really depends on your concept of what the word truly means. You see, it’s like this. Every weekday morning I get up and put on my company shirt, a nice pair of jeans and a pair of company mandated steel to shoes. I actually take a shower, shave and brush my teeth first, but I assumed that would be common knowledge, so I skipped that part. Now, would this be my attire of choice? Hell no! But If I want to get a paycheck from my company, I make that compromise. I even dislike the idea of paying bills! I know, right? You  thought you were the only one, but it turns out most people don’t. But I enjoy having food and shelter. So I make the compromise. Are you beginning to see a pattern here? We live in a structured society, and this society demands that we act and perform a certain way, because if we didn’t, and everybody did their own thing, the proverbial shit would hit the fan. Structured society stifles creativity and individuality. Creativity and individuality, however, are the corner stones of a strong society. What the hell, People?  Now I’m sure your reading this and wondering what my point is. And here’s the kicker, I don’t have a point to make. I’m just rattling this shit off as I go. It seems kinda pointless, doesn’t it?
