Social Musings 101 posted by Jamaal R. James

So in this posting of people who have contributed to society…..I want to discuss parents.

So many time in our lives we take a lot of things for granted. Now I’m talking about the fact that we can breathe or feel or talk. Most of the functions that we normally do we can and are grateful for. But many of the things we enjoy regularly such as toilet paper when using the restroom or a comb to comb our hair we take for granted and use it without thinking, “Hey, I can actually style my hair the way I want it because someone before me was frustrated that he/she couldn’t stylize their hair and invented this comb device. Now the comb isn’t what I am musings about on this wonderful day.

What’s on my mind today is our parents and for those of us who didn’t have parents your legal guardian. I don’t know what kind of kid you were growing up. But without parents a lot of us myself included would have probably gone down the wrong path. I can look back and remember the many times that friendship peer pressure loved to steer or pull me in the wrong direction and my parents would act as the gatekeeper. Not just any gatekeeper. But I a stern gatekeeper with hand raised, “Stop”. At the time of course we couldn’t see why our parents were being so mean to us and not hip. But now looking back, Man-o-man. I’m so glad they were there to stop the dumb actions that made crystal clear logical sense to us kids.

So what I’m saying is if your parents or guardians are still alive give them a call. Tell them how thankful and grateful you were that they steered you on the right path. If your not talking to your parents or legal guardian right now please make mends with them in the here and now. If they were to pass it would be sad that your weren’t speaking because a parent or legal guardian didn’t call you on your birthday but called your other sibling. Yes in spite of all the LOVE and affection we have received from our parents some of us can be quite selfish. But it’s not about us, as many of us wouldn’t have made it to this point without the parental guidance that we received. So take the time and call or visit your parents or legal guardian and give them a simple, thank you.

Lastly if your parents or legal guardian has passed. No worries. You can visit them at their gravesite. In my opinion it’s never too late to make it happen. On that note have a wonderful day, month, evening, or night where ever this article finds you.

How Schools Kill Creativity

http://www.ted.com/talks/ken_robinson_says_schools_kill_creativity

This is a very great video about how in school we are taught to think in a straight line and any deviation from that line is punished. So we tend to stay that way throughout life and then we wonder why kids don’t take creative risks and always play it safe.

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.
