The @OCWeekly calls @lupefiasco new track “Jonylah Forever” the most important song in #hiphop right now
“Rape, murder, torture, skulduggery, bestiality, cruelties to make you shiver in your dreams. Right now there are children all over the world dying of hunger. There are women going to bed in outright fear of the men they live with. There are people waking up on the other side of the world to a day of misery, hell, and godforsaken hatreds. Dogs are killed viciously in gambled fights for money and entertainment. Men are cowering in prison beds afraid of what is going to happen when they leave their cells. Cops are ripping off prostitutes and prostitutes are ripping off their Johns. Pimps are prowling the cities bus station looking for that young female runaway to help; to help himself. Car crashes are ripping lives apart and limbs and innocents. Drunks are beating on their kids and their wives. Women and men are stealing from the aged and the helpless and they are getting away with it for now. There are animals of human nature that are hunting their next victim to rape and to kill, and the victims don’t even know it yet. Grandmothers are thrown aside and siblings are scheming to steal away their inheritance before the old coot dies. Judges are putting innocents into jail knowing full well they don’t deserve it. And judges are crying for the mistakes they made and now realize it. Religion warfare terrorizes the populations with intimidation and shariah law. Children are sick with worry because for the third or fourth time they can’t do their homework that’s due tomorrow morning. Puppies are milled for the money and the dogs who gave birth to them have never in the last seven years known a kind touch, or more room than the four by four wire cage they’ve lived in all their lives. Tribal warfare in third world countries are ripping the blood out of their enemies and the world looks the other way while in South America thousands work in horror for drug cartels that do and will murder them if they don’t work hard enough. Hundreds of thousands throughout the world are in a state of drug induced euphoria or in a state of fear from the withdrawals of drugs. Petty thieves are now robbing hard working men and women with guns, knives, and clubs to get their money for themselves. Prison wards are being washed of the blood and the guts of some poor white collar criminal’s raping. Gangs are running rampant in the streets claiming territories they don’t deserve and mother’s are at their wits end as to how to protect their children. Someone in a bar somewhere is getting a beating; in Asia, Europe, Canada, United States or any where else you would find male congregations drunk. Drunkards are hopelessly slamming on the brakes and some one else is going to suffer for their stupidity. Fires are eating up someones house and home destroying everything they have and family members too. A bull moose is being ripped apart by a pack of wolves somewhere in the north countries and no one hears the cries of agony. A man is screaming the same agony right now in some godforsaken torture chamber the world doesn’t know about. Explosions are going on now, somewhere in this world an explosion is going off for one reason or another and people are getting hurt by it; all because of some mistake. Lovers have broken up and the tears are real in both the men and the women pain inflicts their emotions. Adult children are amazed that their mother is leaving their father for another woman. Cults and clubs are cheating and stealing from their members. Global companies are moving funds around illegally trying to get out of a bankrupt state; their stockholders are about to lose all their savings sometime soon. Sadistic men and women are planning a day of mental torture for their latest victim in the workforce. There are men who are leaving their families because it would be one less mouth to feed, and they can’t get another job anywhere. The homeless are bedding down to another night of fear and shivering and the dry and warm places are just too dangerous to go to. Men are widowed in the last two minutes, women will be widowed in the next two minutes. They all will grieve hard. A mother has lost her children somewhere and men have lost their wives to another man, the pain they feel constricts their hearts so bad .. it hurts.
These are some of the bad things going on in the world right now. There is much more than I can tell but what I have related is going across the world in a population of over six billion human beings.
Imagine the worse that could happen and it is happening right now on planet earth.
On another note …. you wouldn’t believe all the good things that are happening in this beautiful world today. They outrank the bad things by far I believe but then …. that’s another subject for another question now isn’t it?”
I just read this, i think the author did a good job writing this.
” Constrained by both budget and space, the design team at Synthesis enwrapped a series of prefabricated CNC milled birch plywood ribs atop all the necessary features any home workspace should include: a desk, sliding and hinged storage units, a printer and paper shredder, concealed paths for wires and cables and recesses for lighting - thereby eliminating all unnecessary clutter. ”
If my workspace looked like this, I just can’t imagine how creative I would be.
