director’s cut…

we all sit in front of the tv from time to time… some more often than others… as much as we shouldn’t pay attention to all the bullshit we are fed, we still watch the tv… i have been watching a bit too much these days… but i watch with a critical eye… since i have started editing montages, i watch the tube with more knowledge… things are never what they seem…

you watch interviews and listen to the media tell stories about things and people and so on… well, there are many things that are fabricated and twisted to make tv more entertaining… the more they entertain you, the more commercials you watch… the more commercials you watch, the more money and power they gain… it’s a lucrative (and rarely artistic) business…

i watch a ton of sports… this is probably the best way to experience the amount of corruption within every sport and media outlet… they seem to work together to attach people to their televisions… stories about athletes, reports about whatever, ridiculous statistics, and analysis of all things are warped and twisted to entertain us… to make us believe that they really matter… when in the grand scheme of things, they’re worthless…

i watch the way they edit things on tv… the way things are portrayed are never exactly how it occurred…

i then started thinking about how people portray themselves… i started realizing that we edit our lives for people to see what we want them to see to create an illusion or an idea… we are all existing and we all have the same problems, but we don’t want to show/face them… we hide behind a projection screen… we run from reality… but why?

i try to live my life as honest and truthful as i can… i keep my personal problems to myself to not burden/ stress others… but my life problems i share with the people who i care about… sharing/gaining new perspectives on purpose and existence is important to me… i want to know how people view the world… it’s exciting and eye-opening.

as the director of my life, there will be no cuts… there will be no “take 2’s”… it will all happen… and then it’ll be over.

no lights, no camera, but “action”!

peace and noLove…
