I’m not one to speculate other people’s issues and especially publicly BUT Kevin Powell wrote brilliantly and completely out of love… I think Chris should actually read this because Kevin is not pointing a finger, this guy is laying it all out on the table and really extending the “hand of mentorship” in a way that these yes men and pharisees aren’t. I hope more people RT this letter to him. I think it would help him on his journey of becoming a better man. I love this, I support him, and I wish Mr. Brown as much success and happiness as his heart can stand.
So many of you know that I’ve been SXSWing for the past week and I must say I had a ton of fun just kicking back. I really love Austin #sigh lol… Anywho I ended up at a resort in Lago Vista that was so far all we saw were hills, pavement, and deer.
We had to drive down this lovely street called Nameless Rd. just to get where we needed to go.
I know yall are like “how did you end up there” and let me just say it’s a long story but I will NEVER drive that far again lol… on a happy note, Alexis & I did an early check-out and relocated.
Lago Vista was beautiful but we had to hit up good ol 6th St.
I went to the annual Grammy Block Party
(Texas Chp. President Pall Wall)
I got my grub on quite a bit but my Tmobile service was so bad I couldn’t even Foursquare it all :(
Eventually between the eating, performing, partying, and show watching… I ended up at a random mansion for a private showcase and Wiz Khalifa video shoot. It was pretty crazy.
I have more pictures and video footage that I have to sort though to share with you guys but you get the gist. I did a lot of behind the scenes things this go round at SXSW and it was surely a good time :)
You ever feel like folks say they’re more spiritual than religious just to seem a bit more “hip” and open-minded… well sometimes I do lol. I was talking to a few friends of mine on the matter and I personally don’t see anything wrong with being a little religious if it adds to your spirituality and aura. Your religious choice is your belief system and your spirituality can be an application of that belief system. I think that the two can play well together. “Religious” people can get a bad rap, and I totally understand why. I’m not here to take up for judgmental, close-minded, radicals that feel their way of life is the only way anyone can live; I’m just wondering what’s wrong with being religious and spiritual? I feel like some people claim “spirituality” because they don’t like to do the work of the “religious” and that’s fine BUT if your spirit is that of a selfish, grudge-holding, vindictive, and pernicious person… why even say you’re spiritual? You pretty much sound like the religious nuts people despise anyway. And yeah you might hug trees, save baby whales, and even have one or two people that like you but your lighthearted lifestyle claim doesn’t match your actions. (That usually goes the same for the religious.) I think I’m just over folks always saying they’re spiritual as if it makes them better human beings than people that have an organized set of beliefs. I don’t think it should matter to tell you the truth but I wish people would realize the “spiritual” can be just as smug as the religious. I don’t really see a difference anymore.
