Kizzume — “Out Of Time”

Really loved this song produced by an internet peep I’ve been following for a few years now. This tune blew me away. Probably on my 5th re-listening in a row now. The lyrics follow.

Always a newer age
Only this time it’s somewhat newer than the rest
It won’t be long
We’ll be getting out champagne

That’s just a dream we have
Only this time it’s much much stronger than the rest
We scrape along
On the bottom of the tide

Nothing is for certain when you’re out of time
Nothing is forgotten when you’re on the line

Always a bigger stage
Only this time it’s somewhat bigger than the rest
We’ll act it out
As if to try and inflate

It’s just the team we have
Only this time it has more corruption than the rest
They can’t be wrong
They have Orwell on their hands

Nothing will reduce you to an empty space
Nothing will seduce you when you make your case

 

Super impressed over here. Knew he liked to mess around with the keyboard and music but had no idea how gifted he was until now. Kinda jealous, as one who cannot sing worth a damn.  lol  Either way though, he killed this. Great job, dude!  clap

“Aaron Swartz’s Top 10 Rules For Success”

Big fan of that young man. Very sad how it all ended for him, but am glad he existed and shared what he did with us.

True talent can make way for opportunities (videos of Anna Akana)

Wandering around the internet, as I commonly do since becoming a hermit (ha), and decided to check out a channel I subscribe to but hadn’t looked at in a minute. This being Anna Akana’s channel. The lady is truly talented, as an actress, a filmmaker, and a vlogger.

“I have a problem.”:

On that last one I’ve gotta say I could have easily said the same thing when about her age (in terms of feeling like the world was my oyster if I just put in the effort and hone my skills). Then shit changed. Fault and blame — runs and circles around. I know. Just sayin’. Shit can change in ways we never could’ve expected; for whatever reasons we drop the reins. Courage, motivation and vision. (My problem is a lack a vision beyond day-to-day life anymore. And apparently this isn’t too uncommon. Wasn’t always this way, but it’s crept up on me over over time. Actively resisting becoming jaded in my 20s… seems I proved unsuccessful. And that’s my obstacle to deal with. Be that as it may.

“How to Level Up”:

Anna is trying to make a name for herself, and I give her props. She’s undeniably talented. And she tries to keep it real at the base level. I respect that. Came across her channel a while back and appreciated it ever since, coming back around from time to time to check it out. Recommended youtuber.

These sort of people make me wish I was talented too.  ha  But life shakes how it does. Gotta each work with what we can.
