My two most hated words in all of the English language when used in conjunction. To me that says " I don't want any part of your life or to help you in your endeavor whatsoever but good luck!" It's a total cop out disguised as a nice thing to say. Every time someone says it to me it puts a bad taste in my mouth and I instantly like that person much much less. The waiting game sucks, right now I'm waiting on the album to be mixed and the music video to be edited. I'm thinking too much and my train of thought has become rather negative, even meditating has become difficult this month. I've become too money minded recently, too caught up in the machine and it's depressing me. I've still been decently productive on the creative end which always makes me happy. Recording myself here at my place excites me, to be able to have everything exactly the way I want it with no pressure, not to mention the money I'm saving.
I've been working too much and it's been making me feel so empty but to remedy that I've been donating to the Free Tibet foundation. Donating to such a righteous cause makes me feel like I'm helping make a change instead saying"welp good luck guys!".At what point can we change luck? Instead of saying good luck maybe spread the word about a cause or actually do something to help whoever you are wishing good luck to. I hate the feeling that We are powerless pawns of luck, feathers in the wind hoping for the best. Maybe I'm naive but to me it's an ideal worth believing and fighting tooth and nail for.
I refuse to believe that and I refuse to let the future of things that I care about be determined by luck. I want no part of fair-weather spectators who throw two meaningless words at you to pretend they care. To those of you reading this think long and hard before you use these words and instead think of how you can help change luck. On a lighter note next month starts the promotion of Beyond the Plains i'll be giving updates as they are available as well as plans for my EP release show!
