Social Musings 101: Clean Slate

So as I awoke this morning I realized we all wake up and start each day with a clean slate, whoever you were yesterday can be different today. If we all did one thing everyday that would take us closer to the person that we want to be then soon you’d wake up being the person that you always wanted to be. So remember no matter where you’re at in life each day (just like this blank blogging interface) you have the power to start something new or take that one step more forward in the direction of your dream or goal.

Social Musings 101

The next creative person to cover that contributed and art by means of construction or idea creation are the men and women behind the idea of the toilet. Some call it the crapper believe it or not…….and no the inventor of the toiler wasn’t Thomas Crapper. Thomas just helped make the commercialization of the product more successful. In modern times Sir John Harington is credited with the invention of the toilet or perfection of the toilet system. He made a design and had it in his house and tried to get his godmother King Elizabeth the 1st to use it but she wouldn’t because it made too much noise. The most ancient civilization with the best water sewer irrigation technology was Indus Valley Civilization. Not only were these guys creative with their ideas and design they were finishers. They started projects and finished them. Did you know that in some cultures the norm is to squat on the toilet seat to use the bathroom? Did you know

that not all households had toilets, they were only for the wealthy…the rest of the people had to use community or communal bathrooms. So thank you to Mr. Harington and those before you and after you who came with the creative ideas that you did and your social contribution to art of human excrement.

Social Musings 101

In today’s session of people who have contributed to society……we discuss Seneca the Younger…as early dates put him on as the person who looked thru a glass filled with water and noticed that letters no matter how small could be magnified. It’s this magnification principle that eventually led to other creators coming up with and making eyeglasses. So some of you can’t read this type without glasses or contacts. Others that have had Lasik no longer need them. Well you can think the likes of Seneca and all the others after him who added to this concept and built on it. As a result of his discovery and telling others about it many people that would have been robbed from walking in the wrong area, swindled from not being able to read contracts, didn’t have these things happen. But on a lighter more positive note the same people have been able to fully enjoy the joys of life, seeing flowers bloom, seeing the sunset, seeing beauty in all it’s grandeur and physical form…some experiences can only be fully  felt by experiencing them from all five senses. If you have ever been to a concert or a theater or really been into a movie that you like you can experience this. If  you have ever been really happy or in LOVe and had a experience with your significant  other that involves heavy breathing……LOL….you know what I’m talking about….I think it’s those memories  and experiences that make life worth living and looking forward to…..so for all the creators, inventors, and entrepreneurs involved in the magnification of glasses, or eye glasses, or glass ware. Thank You. Click the links  to learn more about Seneca the Younger and glasses.

The History of Rolex

Hans Wilsdorf and his brother in law Alfred Davis started what would later be turned into Rolex as Wilsdorf and Davis. The company started off as an importer of Swiss watches. There are different rumors regarding where the name Rolex came from but the original owners of Rolex wanted the name short so that it could be said in any name and that people would remember.

Patience and Persistence by DJ Electramorhipism

Etiwanda Intermediate Graduation Party

So still tired last night from Djing for Jadah’s Graduation Party. This was the highest turn out for a graduation party that I’ve seen since I’ve been djing for these last 3 years. But fun was had by all. I messed up on some transitions as I was multi-tasking and needed to remind myself to refocus on the music. One new thing I learned. Play music and watch the dance floor, if there dancing then keep playing, if there not, change it, quick, fast, and in a hurry. Don’t be afraid to fail and stay on your toes. Near the end of the night the Dj Software failed but Life goes on, didn’t panic, used another method and all fun was had by all. As the youngsters say, “That party was turntup” Electramorhipism out.

DJ Chuckie One of the Most Engaging DJ’s I know

The reason I picked dj as an engaging dj is because he always makes you feel like its him and you on stage. I noticed that he does a lot of preparation time to construct his sets. If you listen to the intro, he calls out the city several times. So if you are a native new Yorker or you traveled to new York you feel apart of the moment. Then he takes you on these highs and lows with his build ups and drop offs again and again, almost as orgasmic as sex if you’re at venue and letting the music, energy, and feelings of the moment travel thru your body. Have you ever wondered why you see people doing the weirdest dances at EDC events. Yes because all those emotions that have been pent-up are finally released, spiritual blocks are removed as well, that’s why you see a lot of people going around hugging one another and what not. But back to dj chuckie. I really like the way he starts his sets off as well. They usually go something like this…you are listening to the sounds of DJ Chuckieeeeeeeeeee. So if you look at the program and don’t know anything about electronic music you say, oh yea, I remembered this guy called DJ Chuckie, and the way he made me feel and how much fun I had. Who ever is in charge of the marketing plan is a genius and if its you yourself I definitely take my hat off to you sir. Keep em coming sir. Until next time.

Hair Coloring is Fun by electramorhipism

So today at school we learned how to “”Tint” hair. We used shaving cream instead of real tint because we were working on mannequins but it was still pretty cool. Most of things just take repetition to learn but you can learn the things needed to be learned fairly easy. The class was having fun with everyone was helpful with one another. I really like the instructor to student ratio its about 10 students to 1 instructor. Looking forward to trying out some interesting hair styles this summer or this year. Well day by day times a going fast. LOL. No its not. But learning a new craft is always a good thing in this very complex and diverse marketplace that we live in today. Until next time Electramorhipism out.

Which Film Director would you want to work with for a day?

alfred hitchcock oliver stone
Alfred Hitchcock oliver stone

So the question is if you could be on the set of one of the legends. Which would you choose? Me personally, I probably would choose to work with Hitchcock. Then sneak the other half of the day to work with Stone. I really like Hitchcock creative way of looking a familiar concepts and things. But I like the storytelling narration of Stone. I really enjoyed his series that was recently on HBO or Showtime regarding the untold history of the United States. The history that wasn’t told by the main media outlets for whatever reasons. The series was very informative and even talked about the politicians that we have in office now and how they got there. So whoever choose everyway both are great men who inspire others to create, film, and connect with their audiences.
