I put more thought into my Blogs than I do into my Videos. My videos are off the cuff and ad-lid pieces, in which I set up the camera, set up the lights turn the Camera on and begin to speak. What comes out, comes out. People seem to enjoy my casual comments and, I must admit, I enjoy doing them. I want them to be simple and home spun, after all I am not equipped nor do I have any desire to make a video of myself jumping The Snake River canyon on a motor cycle that is on fire. I would get many views, but I have no interest in doing such stunts,
My Blog is another matter. In my Blog, I want to be as provocative as possible within the constraints of good taste. I don’t see any advantage in crossing the line. So many people want to shock and disturb that it has become hackneyed to do so. Their are those who believe that my content is quite daring and I agree with then. So, I will begin.
I find the people who are desperately trying to be shockingly different boring. Because there are so many people doing it. I believe that wearing a jacket and tie to an event is much more daring than showing up in a “Goth” outfit with jet black hair, tattoos and facial piercing to be much less daring because there are so many people doing it, under the cloak of wanting to be different. You not being different, you are trying, desperately to it and blend in with a larger group. exactly opposite of your stated goal.
You show me a man in a jacket and tie or a woman in a nice dress, a string of pearls around her neck and and sensible heels and I’ll show you two people who are truly rebels!
So to all of you creature, out there with jet black hair, tattoos, piercings. and black nail polish, I pity you because you are the conformists. You are the conventional, you are the ones with no courage and you are the ones who blend in to the throng of would be avant guards who are truly the mundane!!
