The Fox inside one of Toronto’s independent Game Studios, during the late hours – another story for another time.

I can’t reconcile the nature of 2018. I’m not the type of motherfucker who can sit idly while loudmouth idiots start citing their manifestos, broadcasting to countless dependents, begging for something to believe in. There’s nothing. That is all.

Our egocentric society has fools by the numbers, lining up like daft cattle willing the slaughter. “Blah, blah, blah,” all in the name of thyself. They must have lost themselves along the way… Giving way for the machine like behavioral programming onset by the over-exposure to The Medias, and handing control of the wheel over to status-quo.

How do we rebel in 2018, in a time where rebellion is the fashionable norm? Conformity? Absolutely not. The only thing to do is to remain ever elusive in the hands of man made Gods, and build. I don’t stand against my fellow humans, with whom I differ. Rather, I stand alongside him/her to develop a greater understanding, share stories, and continue to cultivate a perspective that extends beyond The Self, but reflects upon The Self, like new stars or Suns of inspiration. Life is, after all, a limited endeavor, and I’d love to see as much of it as I possibly can, even if it means seeing it through the eyes of my fellow people.

Go outside. Meet new people. Have new talks. Hear new ideas. For a moment, Close your mouth and open your mind.

Stay alive, Good People.

Sincerely,

RJ

  1. Are you seriously the same Ryan I met today while dropping off my old vhs tapes? I had no idea you did photography too! And you apparently write…I knew you were a deep thinker….old man. LoL…..wait…..Old Soul…much better. You look soooo young….its crazy…..because deep thinkers carry around alot of weight….you told me to hit you up if I wanted to talk old people stuff…so here I am. So nice to meet you….if indeed it is you I met.

    • Goodness, Karen! I am shocked you found my (mostly) inactive little space on the information superhighway. Yep that was me! It was nice to meet you as well.
      To be fair, I feel like an old man, but probably have a young soul – which could account for my affinity for foolishness.

      In regards to my age, thank you! Right? I just try to laugh, and not resist the struggles of humanity, surround myself with positive people. I hope that’s part of it. Unfortunately, it means I get ID’d for liquor. But I suppose I’d make a good candidate, should they ever have a need for a real life 21 Jump Street. Plus, when I met my wife, she likely wouldn’t have agreed to date me if she knew I was a few years her senior. At least not at her age, at the time.
