The 70s, 80s and the 90s are the most prolific and legendary eras when it comes to music. Each decade was the beginning of something new. This was the first time in music where we could see a direct correlation of progress in production. Political situations such as Reaganomics, the crack/cocaine epidemic, and the Gulf War also influenced the progression and direction that music took. So great bands, musicians, record labels, and producers birthed some of the most iconic sounds that can still be heard in music today in 2020.
The use of language is so particular and phenomenal. We give words to concepts that are nothing but a construct of what goes on inside our heads. We applaud and reward the ones who do it well. These are the people who understand how to use the sounds coming out of their mouths as more than a means of communication. These people give us a new thought process; it becomes guerrilla warfare in your head because what you have accepted as normal is now being challenged. We either accept it or we don't. Either way, we appreciate these people who seem to get the idea of language.
Amid the sweeping Black Lives Matter movement, many things have come to the forefront as public knowledge—one of those things being that systematic racism is widely recognized and acknowledged. The black community knows it stands at a disadvantage due to how this country built itself from the ground up and white people are finally starting to see the destruction this has caused within our communities. This current Black Lives Matter movement is the most widely supported movement for non-whites in the history of the United States. This is a significant stepping stone for us. We need to take advantage of it.
I adore love, in all forms that it comes in. Love is a beautiful, chaotic, and intense emotion. When you feel it in its purest form, it is like going on a crazy insightful psychedelic trip. It's a bit too much but also never enough all at once. When you can focus that intensity inward, then there is something special about it. We have all have our days though, where the self-love is lacking.
I find that I do things that I frown upon on another day or later on that same day. I have a particular perception that I want to give off about myself. Sometimes I am dead on the point of that perception. Other times I do things that I can not explain why I did it besides the fact that it felt right. When that happens, it usually means that I am allowing myself to succumb to my impulsiveness out of some form of desire to protect myself or to attain a certain feeling.
