It Is Personal

BrockaMood RoomLeave a Comment

I was building a new song last week. I was/am working with a producer with a solid music theory background. We work similarly. We build linearly. I have never played an instrument. (minus the dumb recorder in 5th grade) The only reason i would want to play an instrument is to control every aspect of a songs production. To feel more badass? I know myself well. If I’m left alone to do it all, I both miss out on another trained creative input AND I find myself in yet another place where I may be too comfortable being alone. I love alone and self-sufficiency too much. That is personal. Running a business similarly isn’t a good idea. Fully controlling anything … Read More

Focus

Sunday evening. It is easy to reflect on, or feel overwhelmed by all the information our brains accumulate at the end of any given week. I rarely turn on my tv and when i do, yes, it is 1-3 news type channels for brief moments. This past week, I just wasn’t around to do so or in the mood for its repetitiveness on specific topics or coverage of one specific persons presidential run. As an aside, maybe a singular person would get less attention if you actually ignored them and stopped discussing them or their ridiculous policies via your social media channels. Ahem. Don’t you remember your mother telling you to ignore the bully or obtrusion? Eventually they get bored … Read More

Mainstream Media Inconsistency

BrockaPolitics, Technology, WorkLeave a Comment

I try to rarely rant on Facebook, because I don’t want to be *that person*, but dammit, this is worthy of more than sounding off. I want to give you some perspective -incase you give no shits about news, politics, media behavior… This is a microcosm example of a much larger problem. Trust me. Rant: The Chinese hacking of Federal Employees is the worst act of espionage in our history and the mainstream media is spending more time on this Ashley Madison website hack. The MSM are mainly immoral liberals who love throwing the lack of values or goodness or anything Christian ideal into the face of the public, further perpetuating their idea that America isn’t the perfect haven comparative … Read More

Honest to Goodness

BrockaMood Room, Relationships, TechnologyLeave a Comment

If this phrase-idiom isn’t both Christian and southern, I don’t what to say to ‘y’all’! “a real honest-to-god live cowboy”; “had us a high old time”; “went upriver to look at a sure-enough fish wheel” ((what the f*** is a fish wheel, seriously)) Colloquially, it is the preface to an exclamation. Instead of saying ‘Oh God!’ (or) ‘Oh my God!’, (oh G*d or Oh my G*d – if you are Jewish) -it is  both raw and without taking Jesus name in vain. I am neither church going or of this habit. I lean towards ‘mother f***’ truth be told, especially when driving. Maybe if I were making a pie and, ‘honest to goodness’ this fruit would be better than that fruit. 🙂 Every cliché has its place. What i love about it: It is literal. It isn’t just a … Read More

The Power of Sleep

BrockaBooks, Health & Wellness, Mood RoomLeave a Comment

I don’t even want to write this; probably means I should. Yesterday I started my day at 5 am. Today I attempted to function, not so well, with about 4 hours of inconsistent sleep. Thus, the deficit is REAL! I do not recommend this. I become very negative. my brain hovers over the ‘nots’ and the ‘don’ts’, from the short-fused and impatient place. Do you listen to yourself? Do you know when you are in the right place or the unhealthy place? This is the most extreme example. Sleep-deprivation is the oldest technique in interrogation; the Chinese have known this forever. Coincidentally, todays Delancey Place email is on sleep deprivation, an excerpt out of the book Dreamland: Adventures in the … Read More
