(Most) Modern Rap is bad?
(Note: whenever I say “rapper,” I am saying a majority, not all rappers) As a musician and fan of (most) music, it pains me to see, rather hear, poor musicianship in modern music. What I am about to say may cause you to desire to punch me in the face. Are you ready? Are you sure? Here we go. Modern rap music is bad. Ok, maybe not all of it, but MOST modern rap music is bad.
How “Life on Mars?” Changed My Life
A year ago I was in a dark time. Everything seemed to fall apart around me. The one thing I could never figure out was, why? Whenever something collapses, usually there is a physical reasoning behind it. I was lost in my thoughts until I discovered this song, “Life on Mars,” written by David Bowie for the album “Hunky Dory.” This dramatic, intense piece of music reflects upon how our lives become the world around us. It was after examining the lyrics of this song that I realized this was my reasoning; I had been taken by the modern world.
This photo shows the shoreline of the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland engulfed in fog in the early morning. At the time (about a week ago, week ago) I was camping in a cabin near the bay (it was in walking distance) and it was freezing. My inspiration behind this photo was a step into the unknown; a fear I have always possessed. Over the past year or so, I have been taking a series of photos with the same message to overcome this fear of mine.
