Money, sex, drugs, material possessions… These are all things of the American dream, whether you wanna believe it or not just watch TV and actually pay attention to the message being burned into our brains.. but at the end of the day a good majority of us are on “moody stabilizers” or “anti-depressants” and for what. Because apparently money and “stuff” is supposed to make us all happy, or do we use these meds to hide from ourselves… So what is true happiness? These days I’m really not sure. I do know that sniffin on designer drugs, and sleeping around isnt going to help the underlaying problem, and yet we cant get enough of these things; these are the things were taught to like from the moment we are able to read. With the increase in promiscuity among todays generation the idea of “love” has disappeared also.. It’s almost as if human morals have completely withered away. or maybe I’m just not up with the times.
Opium and morphine are certainly dangerous, habit-forming drugs. But once the principle is admitted that it is the duty of government to protect the individual against his own foolishness, no serious objections can be advanced against further encroachments…And why limit the government’s benevolent providence to the protection of the individual’s body only?
Is not the harm a man can inflict on his mind and soul even more disastrous than any bodily evils? Why not prevent him from reading bad books and seeing bad plays, from looking at bad paintings and statues and from hearing bad music? The mischief done by bad ideologies, surely, is much more pernicious, both for the individual and for the whole society, than that done by narcotic drugs.
Is art school a waste of money? or would a degree actually help me get my art out there. I know theres alot of web sites that could me get my art career off the ground, but are they really going to get my name out there? As of now I’m just an unknown artist whose work has never been seen by the public, but I am told that my work is great from friends, family, etc. I just find it so difficult to because I don’t know where to start, and I fear most that my work wont stand up to the great stuff Ive been seeing here on tumblr, and other blog/art sites. Maybe I’m just scared of rejection, or I’m just lazy… Maybe I’ll put some of my work on my blog and see what happens. Who knows maybe I’ll be the next internet star. lol
Its been raining for 5 days straight in New England… Whats the sun like again?
