“Everything happens for a reason; people change so that you learn to let go, you believe lies so that you eventually trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so that better things can fall together.”—Marilyn.
now you all know i’m down for promoting new music, but i’m extremely skeptical of the music i’m sent via twitter / email. before i click any links i usually turn down my speakers to just above audible because we all know if i’m going to hear some bullshit i don’t want it to be loud bullshit, plus i do not want to be associated with that kinda foolery. but this time was different. i braced myself and clicked the link and my ears were pleasantly surprised at the tunes coming out of my laptop. i turned up my speakers and actually took the time to listen to each song in depth. the hardwork and long hours enduring the creative process are palpable in the music. impressed the hell out of me, if you don’t know pleasee get familiar.
directly from Goose’s camp:“Homeless In Hollywood is being in a familiar place and unfamiliar place at the same time.” For Goose, this is the transition from striving to “making it.” The Syracuse born rapper relocated to Florida at a young age without the intentions of evolving into what he has become today. It wasn’t until after high school, where he developed enough confidence in himself to pursue the unthinkable. In 2006, he made his first appearance on the EA Sports’ Madden 2007 soundtrack. Enduring the last few years of personal experiences and early career woes, Homeless In Hollywood (Goose’s first full length mixtape/ EP) is the product of what this industry has made him. “All these new ideas and fresh sounds, is everything music is not supposed to be.” As Goose attempts to occasionally step out of the box, his goal in music is to always give the people something else and to continue developing as a rapper and as an artist.
am i hypocrite or a bad person because i have tattoos? does it make me less of a christian? do i somehow love god less because i have ink in my skin? am i all of a sudden a slut ? am i less of a woman? did my IQ just drop 50 points?
didn’t think so. i don’t understand how inking art (keyword: art) into my body somehow changes who i am as a person. my two tattoos mean a lot to me and if you don’t understand them then… oh well! i love my tattoos and will continue to get more until i feel that i don’t want anything else. end of story. i am still a lady and yes i will still look gorgeous in my wedding dress. its totally upsetting people would ask me do i feell manly / why did i get my tattoos? i just want to ask why did you cut your hair? why did you wear that shirt? why do you look like that?! well my tattoos express how i feel it doesn’t matter how you feel about them. i have one body and one life to live and will mark it if i please. i am still a good person. i don’t hurt anyone by anything i do. my body is still my temple. it’s 2010 GROW UP! ideals have changed. tattoos are beautiful, i went on a physical and spiritual journey to get and live with these tattoos, so please don’t judge me. go out ink your body, tell your story.
stay beautiful, tash.
p.s sorry for this random rant, it was just on my mind.
an amazing compilation of tunes. erick’s music has become an addition to my morning routine. all true music junkies know that what ever you start your day with sets the tone for the remainder of it. this is a true “set it & forget it” album. i don’t touch my iphone at all ! anyone who knows me knows that i have complete ADD when it comes to music, i’ll change my favorite song in a heartbeat. soooo basically, i’m in love. p.s he’s a totally cool dude. we talked about blogs. lol
