    This is pretty interesting. Took me a few secs… **patting myself on the back** :)

    I love Burgundy’s swag. But Bush has no swag. Still an idiot.

  • 5. Nicole  |  April 1st, 2008 at 11:26 AM

    LOL. You’re funny Sakiya but I cannot agree. Bush does not have any of the ’swagger’ Ron Burgundy had…after all Ron was able to learn from his mistakes. Can’t say the same about ol’ boy in office!

  • 6. Phatmike  |  April 3rd, 2008 at 11:09 AM

    Great video. I peeped it today on 106 & Park. Love the meaning of the song, great shots of the City (Chi-town). KanYe has a very unique style, that is good for Hip-Hop.
    Once again….. Great Video.

    Red in the nose and cheeks indicate a slight drinking problem – but I would too if I were a warmonger.

    You’d have to have a lower shot of bush for a real ron burgandy comparison

  • 8. Rick  |  April 4th, 2008 at 5:19 PM

    Great video for managers and leaders who act, react and over-react to assumptions and speculation. Stop and THINK about all the possibilites first, then move forward.


  • 9. Stephanie Alexander  |  April 4th, 2008 at 5:46 PM

    I must admit……I get it! George W. Bush is a weenie. No denying that one. However, there is something about him that is hysterical and makes me think I would have a ball if by any chance I found myself at a BBQ with him. He has this sort of hubristic swagger that is endearing. It still doesn’t mean he should have had a shot at two terms in office…….. BUT I admit I kind of secretly like him…..God forbid.

  • 10. Stephanie Alexander  |  April 4th, 2008 at 5:51 PM

    Nice find. Clever point. There as many ways of looking at things as your eyes will allow for. The question is what will your eyes allow for…..

    Great quote by Dell. I think that instinct comes with years of experience. For example, someone wanting to start something in the IT industry should have several years of experience first before that instinct really becomes reliable.

  • 24. K Dunson  |  May 12th, 2008 at 11:42 AM

    Met you at the “Glow in the Dark” Tour on Saturday in VA. I spoke very briefly of the “Missing Bannister Theory” from Thank You and You’re Welcome. The entire book is full of clever and not oversimplified statements and conundrums. Many of these are quick sources of inspiration to look on at any time. Very interested in the Thinker’s movement.

  • 25. Lisa  |  May 12th, 2008 at 3:39 PM

    so so true

  • 26. Young Mind  |  May 12th, 2008 at 7:48 PM

    Lol. Thats funny yo. I just got my hands on KANYE’s Thank You & You’re Welcome and Googled YOU…. and here I am. A subscriber to your Blog.

  • 27. Young Mind  |  May 12th, 2008 at 7:53 PM

    Wow…. that is Beautiful. I somehow can’t help but feel like we’re ALL just insects living on the back of Mother Nature when I see pictures like this…. and at any moment she could flick us off the Planet – like THAT!

  • 28. Young Mind  |  May 12th, 2008 at 7:56 PM

    I hope you don’t MEAN you learnt that – YOU were just an option on the TOUR?. Lol. Kidding…. I’m sure it came to you while ON the Tour – and NOT from BEING on the Tour. Lol. I LOVE that thought tho…. Great Advice!!

  • 29. Young Mind  |  May 12th, 2008 at 7:58 PM

    Yup… THIS is a Good one!! Sorry….. a GREAT one! Lol.

  • 30. Keisha  |  May 14th, 2008 at 4:36 AM

    Mike is a snake in the grass. I’m speechless! One suggestion you should create the option to email this link. That way people can publicize your site. I really want people to see this, but i’d have to send them to Youtube instead of your site. Just an idea. Don’t know if it’s possible.

  • 31. Keisha  |  May 14th, 2008 at 4:40 AM

    When we don’t see our purpose, we don’t have the desire. Who’s to blame when a child wants to die?

  • 32. Keisha  |  May 14th, 2008 at 4:54 AM

    i see the sun setting in a deserted place. Not to deep. For some reason i can’t stop focusing on the bright light and the contrasting darkness in spite of the light. Like the light is there but it’s not radiating. it’s not fulfilling it natural purpose, to over come darkness. I’ve always been taught, and have taught that light and darkness can not dwell in the same place at the same time, one must submit to the other. I guess, to me, it’s kind of spiritual. Is the light overcoming the darkness or is the darkness overcoming the light. what direction is the progression in? I guess i depends on the person and where they are. Let me stop because the more i look at this pic the deeper i go into my thoughts. No one will probably ever read this anyway, but i do like where this took me.

  • 51. SaRaH  |  May 25th, 2008 at 8:55 PM

    The bubble project is a WONDERFUL idea. I wish I had a still picture of Oprah in the beginning of this clip. She’s looking like “What the hell did I say to get this reaction?” while making a mental note to say it several times through out the show. But on the other hand I was thinking,”I see a bad performance and people still clap…I wonder if they’re clapping because they liked what they saw or because they’re happy it’s over?” – Kanye West snd Sakiya Sandifer “THANK YOU AND YOU’RE WELCOME”

  • 52. SaRaH  |  May 25th, 2008 at 8:59 PM

    Your message is powerful and I loved the Kanye West book. I have ordered you book “Think,Think,Think and Think again”. I can’t wait to read it. Your honest and driven and your extremely motivational. Keep writing and speaking.

  • 71. Ms Porcelain  |  June 3rd, 2008 at 7:34 AM

    I think it’s a great idea, but I dont think that it should be something reserved for children whose parents can afford it. That’s why I’m in the process of making sure that children in rural schools here in South Africa, also get healthy food at school (some of these kids walk long distances to get to school).

    Making sure these kids get it as good as rich kids is my mission.

  • 72. Knuckle  |  June 3rd, 2008 at 9:32 AM

    I absolutely agree with you on this thought. I did not have that protection and I am sure that if I had, it would have made a positive & significant difference in my life. I am glad they have your protection.

    Thats Derren Brown he is famous for employing “NLP” which is basically hypnotism..but for reason i think it would be much more interesting if he tried that on a black person..the reaction might be a little different!! lol

  • 76. Truth Be Told  |  June 4th, 2008 at 1:10 PM

    Honestly, I agree with Ms Porcelain about the whole rich kid and poor kid delema. Now, truthfuly, I don’t think the poor kid is worried about extra healthy food and robotics. I believe they much rather get an education so that they can move up in life.

    I’ve always admired Will. He has taken a beating from rap artists and actor critics countless times. Still, he keeps pushing foward and proving them all wrong. That quote really gives us a deeper look into his thoughts. The man is right, he knows it. Everyone else is just hating.

    i can tell you for sure that there is no city and no village named carioca in all of romania (i’m romanian AND i checked an index).

    I agree with Dr. David Hardman. When an individual feels that they have acquired any sort of knowledge it seems that it becomes sort of human nature for us to challenge anything in question. As we acquire more and more knowledge, the more qualified we feel we are to debate anything in question as long as we are against the masses. More or less what the Dr. said.

  • 127. Thinker Anonymous  |  June 19th, 2008 at 11:02 PM

    My answer to the quetsion is faith linked to intelligence is kind of wierd. I feel that our faith is not connected to what would probably be our academic intelligence, which seems to be discussed in this article. I feel that it has a connection to what could be called our observational intelligence. Things you don’t first see in books like situational right and wrong, or general human emotion, etc. Those types of things seem to have a huge affect on an individuals belief in God, or is it just me ???

  • 128. Johnathan "JDP" Pratt  |  June 20th, 2008 at 12:31 PM

    I found this site through the “Thank you and your welcome” book that you and Kanye put together because I figured that the man behind it must have other things worth while to talk about. Since then I’ve become a huge fan, and added your site to my everyday online routine. I received a copy of your book, and I appreciate the extra effort you put into it by personally signing it(and spelling my name right, no one does. lol) I just want to say thank you because like the comment above said, you make me actually want to think about things rather then settle for what’s spoon fed. People need people like you because many have forgotten what the “thinking” concept is. So again, thank you and keep up the good work.


  • 129. Young Mind  |  June 20th, 2008 at 1:48 PM

    There is nothing I can add – that hasn’t already been said by the comment above so… I’ll just say… Dido!. And It was KanYe’s “Thank You & You’re Welcome” book that lead me here as well. I must admit I had to google the author…. but who cares! I’m thankful that I did. In short… Thank You J. saKiya Sandifer… Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. : )

    Well, I’d definately go for A.

    I think she’s a way better conversational partner when stuck all alone on an island.

    Also, she might be able to catch some fish for me, food is good!

    … and she’s just way cuter than the rolly polly fishhead.

    It’s easy sometimes to forget to say simple things like “thank you,” especially within the media world. Thanks for reminding us to practice gratitude Rebecca. And after looking at the site for a while, I feel the need to say thank you as well. I feel enlightened :)

  • 134. Young Mind  |  June 23rd, 2008 at 12:32 PM

    I had that SAME thought too. It’s his EYES…. you see the look in his eyes and assume that he’s a threat.

    J. Sakiya,
    I come to your site everyday as I do Kanye’s Blog. “JDP” took the words out of my mouth. I too have been wanting to thank you and Kanye for giving me the pleasant surprise of having your Autographs on the cover. I was not expecting that at all, THANK YOU… I enjoyed the book greatly. Secondly, keep up the good work. I feel refreshed reading through your site because it opens my mind to a whole new world.

  • 164. Young Mind  |  June 30th, 2008 at 9:41 AM

    Sometimes these type a situations are unavoidable… especially in the work place. Dealing with people you don’t like is never easy… but when you have a mortgage to pay, sheeit… what you gon do?. Lol.

    AND…. they probably thinking:

    Javier: This Bitch!

  • 165. Young Mind  |  June 30th, 2008 at 9:53 AM

    I wonder how many of these activists eat SOME type of animal MEAT, or wear LEATHER Shoes?.

    Don’t get me wrong…. I’m against cruelty to ALL of God’s creatures – but DAMN man!!. If your just gonna protest for “Fur”…. and no OTHER animals?…. that just doesn’t make any sense to me?.

    And FYI… I’ve never worn Fur in my Life, and don’t plan too either. I’m just saying….

  • 166. Leandra  |  June 30th, 2008 at 10:58 AM

    Funny I should read this just after it was revealed to me (probably not for the first time) that the only person who should have to live up to my standards is me. This works for everyone. Often, I’m convicted that what I’m thinking/being/doing should be right for everyone simply because I’ve determined it to be right for me. Not the case.

    My question is what would activism look like if activists understood and lived by the principle that the only people who should have to live up to their standards is themselves, individually?

    To go even further, how would law change? How would societies that laws shape change? Doesn’t enacting that principle have far-reaching implications? Where do you draw the boundaries, especially with regard to ethics? Should child molestation only be legal for those who believe that it’s right as long as they have consent, regardless of age? Should slavery be legal for those who aren’t morally opposed to it?

    Aww, actually I think his innocence cute. This man maybe just thinks that people are inherently good natured. Though it is a bit nieve, he just believed that the stranger in need of help wouldn’t wrong him. The truth is, people ARE inherently good natured. We just think otherwise because of what Gerbner calls Mean World Syndrome created by the mass media. So maybe he WAS thinking.

    But who knows?! I’m just a college student who was raised in the suburbs.

    javier is like, “i don’t kiss women!”

    and that’s pretty much what’s going down in my book.

    [QUOTE=sakiya]I find it quite presumptuous for anyone to think that just because they’re not into something that no one else should be either.[/QUOTE]

    I think we all have a personal responsibility to voice our concerns and opinions to each other, if we want to influence the world we live in. I mean we are human biengs, and one of the things that should seperate us from the rest of the animal kingdom is our ability to reason with each other.

    As far as these activist being presumptuous, that may be the case, but ultimately WE the observers have to determine whether the message is valid or not, to discard of things we deem frivolous.

    I personally don’t appreciate people who abuse children . . . yes, I look down on people who are “in” to that. I don’t think anyone else should be “in” to that also.

    More than the belief that ther is a sucker born every minute, I can say thier is a heart being brocken and a person being rejected by love, a big chic getting turned down by a modeling agency,and a skinny chic who is trapped by self loathing. some people have really learned how to tap into the minds of the consumer with low self esteem.

    I believe that there was a similar restaurant in Hong Kong which serves food in the same sorts of bowls and you also get to sit on the same toilet chairs too if I remember correctly! The name of the place in Hong Kong is the modern toilet. It might be a restaurant chain! I think it probably started in Taiwan and spread around…

    What a pic. LOL.

    The red throughout the room pretty much symbolizes the outcome of this particular situation…I’m guessing it would be murderous.

    Butnow, I’m wondering if this situation is different than what is seems, because I can’t believe that guy laid in bed with what I’m assuming is another man’s woman, and didn’t second-guess himself with all of those knives on the wall. He must’ve come through a window, which is sort of a relief, because maybe he had an escape route.

    Or maybe, they were expecting him. Or maybe not, seeing as they only have two wine glasses. But maybe, the guy does drink wine to get in the mood. Hmm.

    Anyway, I digress.

    I know what I would do in this situation, but that’s top secret. No, really it’s so complicated an explanation that I don’t really feel like typing it out. ;o)

    SIDENOTE: Those are some really nice bedsheets that they’re getting frisky in, and you have a really nice blog.

    1). Quickly grab the wine bottle on the bed side table.
    2). Smash it against the wall
    3). Take the Wife hostage to secure my safe passage.

    It may come to seem that, as intelligence grows it is not a matter of belief or disbelief, but rather a situation that requires us to question all matters beyond the answer provided to us with a simple logic. Throughout human history our belief system has gone from natural gods, or polytheistic gods and titans, to singular ideas/gods, (which is no coincidence with the nature of our world; ie. politics, economics and general philosophical mindsets). With this in mind, notion that the more an intellectual advances his study of knowledge, the more he or she will question, ponder, or simply think about what is, or could be, an answer to the question of God.

    Having an unwavering faith; in anything, is comforting & all consuming if it is meant as your guiding beacon of light. This has always been a characteristic of those with lesser intelligence, simple minded and assuming people. Those who have though beyond the basic levels of simple thinking, who expand their mind, are going to discover that a belief system based on a notion of one is, respectfully, ludicrous.

  • 270. NT  |  July 11th, 2008 at 3:57 PM

    I’m thinking this is a joke, but if it’s not this commercial is not suprising. To my knowledge, there is an obsession among women in India with having lighter skin, because they deem it more beautiful (as you can see in this video, and I’m assuming this phenomenon is what you’re referring to when you say “preying on those who obviously have a negative image of themselves”). Now I can see why.

    This ad is crazy! “White beauty”? LMFAO! That other woman (playing the dumpee) was fuckin’ gorgeous. And what’s crazier is that she is much lighter than many Indian women (millions and millions and more millions of them), so imagine how they must feel by seeing something like that? Let’s just say that product is going to sell pretty well in India. The Man never ceases to enforce his plan.

    “White beauty to give you a radiant pinkish- white glow–pale white or pinkish white…you choose”. LMAO! I mean, it’s not funny, but it’s so ridiculous you can’t help but laugh. And then the sad, depressing music in the background. Wow.

  • 271. NT  |  July 11th, 2008 at 4:03 PM

    Oh yeah, and I agree with that last line about true love. And not only true love with someone else, but also true SELF-love. Which is a love everyone needs to find, because when you have the self-love, the fact that someone else doesn’t love you for who you are doesn’t have the same negative impact.

    Now, I’m quite sure if they were to say “Black Beauty” you mf’s would be applauding, but since it says “white beauty” it’s evil and destructive? And nobody sees a problem with that huh?

    The product is for those who want to achieve a certain look. They didn’t say this is how everyone needs to look…they didn’t say this is the standard of beauty…it’s a fucking Commerical…it’s marketing. if its not for you, then here’s a radical idea…don’t buy the shit.

    Everyone please think about what you’re saying..this is the “Think Movement� this isn’t Bossip or TMZ. let’s try to have a certain level of intelligence when commenting.

    Now, I’m quite sure if they were to say “Black Beauty� you mf’s would be applauding, but since it says “white beauty� it’s evil and destructive? And nobody sees a problem with that huh?

    Actually, I would only applaud a company that was marketing the idea “Black Beauty” to Black people because the idea then would be to promote a sense of pride, not of shame and inferiority. It is completely destructive and insensitive, as well as evil, to market the concept of White beauty being at the top of the hierarchy to people who are naturally darker complected.

    What’s being criticized isn’t the product alone. In that case, if the shoe doesn’t fit, don’t wear it. What is rightfully deserving of criticism, however, is the message being packaged with the commercial in order to obtain sales. The whole premise of that video was to indicate that if she were a white beauty and not a pink beauty, her man would’ve returned to her.

    Read anything about copywriting or marketing and you’ll understand that emotional impulses sell products. Why? Because emotions often times overrule logic. If you think that the emotional card Pond’s is pulling here is level and not underhanded, then think again.

    True, those being marketed should use critical thought when watching this commercial, but its important to understand the historical importance of complexion in India.

    Why is it that the only people/entities that get applauded for causing detriment to others are companies and then it’s written off as “smart business” if the venture is successful??

Especially if the tank was hot pink.

    But never mind that tank, that cow’s rockin’ a nice lil’ mohawk there.

I probably wouldn’t touch ANY of these masterpieces, for some reason they ALL seem like they’ll wake up and do something crazy, what I don’t know—maybe sing/dance/yell???…my imagination now uh lol.

  • 296. Tuesdai Noelle  |  July 14th, 2008 at 11:24 AM

    I saw the movie “Hancock” also, on this pass Independence Day, and if we’d been in the same movie theatre, same roll, and I glanced over and look at you…you would have saw the same “expression” on my face as you’ve described, for Hancock was a TOTAL flop. It was the kind of a simi-flop on a slide order of “The Wiz”, great casting, wonderful music, but terrible script…not even Michael Jackson and Diana Ross starring as MAIN CHARACTERS could save that movie. Hancock had all of the making in and out of scenes during the movie, to redeem itself…PLENTY of time to do so. Instead, the writer and director spended (in my eyes) half of the movie protraying Hancock as a cruel junkie, rather than someone who could ever possibly become anything close to a hero. I wish I could GOOOOO DEEP about a FEW scenes, that left and HAD question marks surrounding ALL around it, from beginning to the ending, that being sooooo imcomplete, but I’d spoil it lol, like you said for others. But I reallyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy want to do indepth with it lol. Bottom line the script was only slighty tight (if I can use that in that meaning) , but it wasn’t accurate enough for the direction they kept switching it back and forth from. Back to the drawing board Mr. Smith…I wonder if there’s a iRobot 2?
    Side Bar: I am very much intrigued in seeing what “Dark Knight” is going to be…it looked VERY promising YET kind of like it might slightly fall in the vain of “a brush of cliche”…but only a tad, we will see :)

  • 297. leandra  |  July 14th, 2008 at 12:06 PM

    Yeah…this movie just completely fell apart and was only successful in terms of box office figures, which I have to say are quite impressive. It seems as though the producers kind of knew they had a not-so-great film when you really examine the trailers, which did the job of generating interest and peaking curiosity, but had that kind of evasiveness you usually only find in bad film (think “The Forgotten” and Jackie Chan and Jet Li’s last film).

    The movie is really top-heavy in terms of being good. They spend the first third building up the plot and then it sharply falls apart to become a cheesy, cliche family superhero movie. It’s disheartening to think that someone with as many resources as Will Smith couldn’t find a good comic book writer to advise the script. This was kind of like a Vanilla Ice version of a comic book movie, although unfortunately for that genre, it’s just now beginning to gain its credibility as a respectable artifact that should be treated accordingly.

  • 298. Kevin Lucchino  |  July 14th, 2008 at 12:07 PM

    I for one thought Hancock was an excellent film. Original and unpredictable the movie had me after I fully understood the symbolic eagle throughout the film.

    Hancock symbolized America itself in the film, and I’m surprised many have not caught on to it.

    The omnipresent eagle, the bum who has superpower and the name itself John Hancock. US is a superpower, the eagle is one of it’s most symbolic figures and John Hancock is known for his confident flamboyant signature that was first to be written on the Declaration of Independence.

    So we have Hancock a superpower who feels it is his responsibility, because of his ability, to intervene in times of terror, but is perceived as arrogant, selfish and destructive, with no regard to anyone or anything. Huh….that sounds very familiar to the perception of the world on the U.S. and their foreign affairs.

    Now visa versa, Hancock can be looked at as a big brother. Looking out for the lesser privileged and keeping order in LA. If done right, this could be the perception of the U.S. on a global level.

    Any Rebuttals?

  • 299. B  |  July 14th, 2008 at 12:18 PM

  • 300. leandra  |  July 14th, 2008 at 1:23 PM

    Kevin, excellent point. I hadn’t thought of it that way. It’s a great perspective.

    In reference to what saKiya said about going to prison, especially with regard to your interpretation of the movie, him going to prison makes sense. The idea wasn’t about him just making a turn for the better, but taking responsibility for his missteps. The implicit idea is that accountability is necessary for reform. This is also applicable to the US.

    While the undercurrent of the film has a great message, still the execution of it missed the mark. I didn’t know what was going to happen, but what was happening was just hmmm…completely out of pocket.

    I actually liked the movie. After reading Kevin’s and Leandra responses, I can see how the movie could have been a subliminal message for our country. And now that i know that i like the movie even more… However the message I got out of the movie was more personal. It can be my growing pains or just my emotional side. But the message i got was more inspirational. Especially the scene when he was in prison and went to get the ball.. he could have easily flew out of there. But instead he flew back in and went through with the procedure to make him a better super hero.. He was ready for the change and tired of being Hate.. His thirst to change was his true Strength. Because a change for the best is much harder than picking up a car…??? Just my thoughts though.. I really can find many more inspirational moments in the movie that helped me think… Just wanted to shar that one!!

    i agree that intelligent people tend to question more, thus making them discover the “vagueness” of their belief.
    but people who believe are more special because they see beyond what is already there, they feel what “intelligent” people cannot.

    Morning :) Mmmmmmmm, I can’t 100% go along with the statement on the shirt “Today…I’m not a Ho” almost like completely
    because (to me) it basically indirectly stating; “I’m not a HO today, but I was one yesterday and could be one tomorrow”.

    It’s just got a tad of some questions marks for me, I do understand what the designer was trying to coney, when they created this shirt…but it’s just not adding up completely, if you see what I’m saying.

    In other words, the thought behind the statement is right, but the “Today” leaves a gap open somewhere in there. That’s just my interpretation…not to sound or be deep, but that’s how I’m viewing it.

    I doubt it, society as a whole would have to stop viewing the media, as their sole resevoir of information, ideas, and inspiration.

  • 332. Joy F  |  July 16th, 2008 at 9:20 AM

    I think so. Humans are extremely adaptable. After the initial shock and awe people usually fall in line and find ways to understand the world around them. Humans (as a whole) have been through so many changes – both good and bad – throughout our existence that I think this question has been answered time and time again.

  • 333. Tuesdai Noelle  |  July 16th, 2008 at 10:01 AM

    No. Society as I see it, is in a serious case of DENIAL in this season. Most people seem as though they are running from the truth, and the bad part is the “truth” may be the answer and their way OUT…as well as it being helpful to some these individuals.

    Though are only but a few who will receive this “relevation”, others out of pride, (I’ve witnessed) will RUN, HIDE, and won’t receive and rather GO the LONGGGGG way instead of a ” RIGHT” way that can be helpful, uplifting, encouraging and life changing for them.

    People want change I believe, but are in no way willing to work towards it in this season.

    well when would anyone, even the most sound individual let alone a confederacy of dunces, be READY for that? there may be times that would seem better than others but still there will never be a time when you are READY to have the foundation you’ve built your life upon collapse entirely…in regards to society’s capability, idk how much emphasis i’d put on whether or not anyones capable of dealing with that because a revelation like that is just the kind of thing you HAVE to deal with as in there is no other choice, capable or not truth, or rather doubt, would be staring them in the face. theres no way to avoid that so being incapable isnt really an option…i think

  • 338. NT  |  July 16th, 2008 at 2:26 PM

    A revelation that would force them to question everything? Are you kidding? Absolutely not.

    They say the truth hurts for a reason. And they say ignorance is bliss for the same reason. Nobody likes having their beliefs challenged, because it forces people out of their comfort zone, and people like to be comfortable. Revelations are life-changing, and people only like change if they see it benefitting them in some way. So, best believe, if the revelation, or truth, is ugly, most people are likely to reject it.

    If people are forced to deal with a truth they don’t want to accept, they will revolt.

    Why do you ask? You know somethin’ we don’t know? :P

  • 339. NT  |  July 16th, 2008 at 2:29 PM

    Maybe I’m reading too much into it… My best friend says that it makes her think that we all have our own unique energy around us and we leave a piece of it wherever we go. Makes you wanna be more discerning about where you go LOL.

    I’m intrigued by the thought behind it…clever as to how they’ve incoporated sandwiches from their value meals , to go along with this project :) But of course McDonald’s always comes up with some of the most brilliant ideas far as food goes…Target comes up with the other BRILLIANCE, far as marketing their projects (commericals etc :)

  • 357. Tuesdai Noelle  |  July 19th, 2008 at 2:47 PM

    This is simliar to a clock right?? I’m looking at the billboard again, wondering is my comment right…hmmmm. Seems like a concept to a clock far as telling when lunchtime, breakfast, dinner…hope I’m not too far off :)

  • 358. NT  |  July 19th, 2008 at 5:14 PM

    Okay, see, now that…that is what I call genius. It took me a minute to notice that it was actually displaying the time until I peeped the shadow being made on the billboard. This is the first time I can truly say “I’m lovin it” when referring to McDonalds. LOL. What a clever way to present a breakfast menu. This is the kind of science I like. That DNA maipulation stuff you posted about the other day…I can’t get with that.

    Anyway, from this picture, I can tell the photograph was taken looking North based on the angle of the shadow. The angle lets you know the position of the sun in the sky (if you pretend that the shadow extends as a line into the sky, following that line will lead you in the direction of the sun, right?). And if you know that the sun rises in the East, and sets in the West, then based on the angle of the shadow you could pretty much estimate what time of day it might be, which is what they’ve done here. Very cool.

    Nice post. :o )

    Maybe this painter is implying that Obama will be a revolutionary president in a way that no president has really been since Abe Lincoln, especially when it comes to matters of equality. Lincoln freed the slaves, as the story goes…perhaps Obama will free the American people. I dunno.

    I like the colors, though. :/

    i work in the financial services industry, and we already work at least ten hours a day for 5 days a week. this idea is practical, however, its probably best applied for those who are employed by the state or the government, or those who have the traditional “punch-in, punch-out” type of schedule. private companies and small business, and global companies like mine who deal with clients from other countries, would stand to lose too much.

    i agree with both posts… i worked at an architectural firm who used this monday-thursday method, but also worked for four hours on friday morning from eight to noon. this would obviously total a forty-four hour work week. i enjoyed this method, although at the same time i often found myself with others working on projects on those friday afternoons when business was good. we would have suffered obviously if we didn’t use that time… business never sleeps.

    My thoughts (keepin it real, with NO justifications, JUST saying it FLAT OUT!): First of all, “Living out dreams”?????, his dreams in that area fantasy or not (if I can BE real)have become “nightmares” and is liable to scare somebody to the MAX. Screen name or not, his days, thoughts, ideas, married of 2 years or 44 (as he is) with “THAT” are and HAVE been numbereddddddd. Let’s just keep it real at this point, He’s too old for this foolishness
    now, he should have GOT all of this stuff “really” out of his system before he got married (nah that’s real right there….even though “some” don’t, they TOO are SAD). Shame on him for being…married??? for 44 years, AND dragging others along with his old TIRED sick tale! Thank goodness it’s coming to an END. Old folk be trippin with stuff. At this Tokuda, needs to go home to be with this wife and daughter (whole heartedly) grab himselve a BIG bag of Dortios, a ice cold bottle of Cherry Coke, find a sofa and SEAT in it. I am erked when OLD folk still be actin up in these matters. Again my thoughts :)

    I remember reading this story last year, and my jaw just dropped. And my response to your question is this: “Followers follow and Leaders Lead”…A follow is basically going to go with the system, not necessarily based on their on facts and opinions, but 9 times out of 10, they’ll normally make their decision based off of another’s AND without having full knowlege sometimes of what they’re doing…sadly expecting others to follow them AS they follow. The Blind leading the Blind. Leaders on the other hand (most of the time) stand by they decision, knowing that whatever point and/or direction that they’ve chosen to go in, whether people are down with it, agree or disagree with it via; something they done or said…..they’re certain that’s the BEST one. They don’t shay or waver at all from it.

    I’ve also thought about this before, I agree with you, hearing and sight are the most important. I think its because these are needed for us to communicate, the other senses just let us experience our world in great ways.

    Initially I would say I wouldn’t want to live without my sense of hearing. I can always use what I hear to paint a picture of what I don’t see. But the narcissist in me says that I need to be sure that I’m looking my very best when others see me. Hard to say, I’m leaning more toward hearing though!

    Why can’t I think of anything that has improved my life???

    I have worked in the tech industry for 12 years and I often fantasize about leaving it all behind for a simplified life in a less-developed country.

    The joy of the fantasy comes from the abandonment of all things that I use and depend on day-to-day.

    I think the television has been a complete burden on society. It has the potential to be so much and yet we squandered the brilliance of the invention on reality shows.

    I don’t know if it has improved my life or not, but I do love my iPhone.

  • 433. rich  |  August 7th, 2008 at 4:45 PM

    i agree, the internet has had tremendous impact in so many ways…across so many fields
    it is indeed a double edged sword though…you can waste away many hours engaging in mindless banter…
    but its also an information highway…instant access to unlimited knowledge…
    i, myself have done countless hours of research with the net
    the main downfall i see with technology and the internet…is the loss of human touch…
    using devices to replace human interaction is becoming very prevalent in the upcoming generation…
    just think how many young people “cant” live without their cellphone attached to them

  • 434. NT  |  August 7th, 2008 at 7:16 PM

    Definitely the internet for me. There is probably some other technological advancement that has done more to impact my life, but I can’t readily think of it. So, the internet it is. And I say the internet because it’s the information highway. Just so much information (and porn, lol) at your fingertips…at the click of a few buttons (and it sure helps to have some skill with the “Googling” technique). So much to learn, not enough time. I love it. How do people live without it?

  • 435. NT  |  August 7th, 2008 at 7:27 PM

    I agree, Rich. Substituting face-to-face human interaction with communication via a virtual world isn’t exactly the best thing for humanity. While it might seem like an OK thing because we’re still being communicative even though we’re online, I do think that if you rely too heavily on the internet as your way of interacting with other people, it can hinder your ability to interact out in the real world. I will say though, that there’s a certain comfort you get knowing that you can exchange ideas with someone without them having to see your face, because what you bring to the table physically and other superficial things have a tendency to influence the way someone processes what you have to say, so it’s nice to not have the distraction there sometimes.

He might have had that laptop before he fell on hard times and became homeless,and that may be one of his last possesions (that he hasnt’t pawned or sold) that serve as a constant reminder that he still is a part of society. Apicture is worth a thousand words.

    I am living that relationship right now. My Ex Boyfriend broke up with me about a 1 1/2 ago due to our relationship getting “too complicated”. The funny thing is we are now the best of friends. We managed to stay close because of the honesty even though in the beginning it was so hard to be around him. The beautiful thing about this situation is that at first I felt hurt, confused and empty. Today, after getting to know him outside the “boyfriend” role, I know now I was too much woman for him. Meaning, I have many goals in life many by which I have accomplished. My Ex has zero goals and aspirations and I know now that being self motivated is an important asset I would want a partner to possess…Long story short, I have my shit together, he doesn’t. Not to sound cocky but I realized with this experience that I am too much for him. I would have never grown had we stayed together. This break up was a blessing in disguise because now I know that I am worth so much more than I was giving myself credit for during the relationship. Time and patience definitely heals all wounds.

    I used to have that same ‘I can do anything and will win at everything’ attitude until a member of my immediate family died earlier this year. I found myself entirely demotivated in the process.


    I’ll get it back though.

  • 529. neo-london ch1c syndrome  |  August 27th, 2008 at 6:56 PM

    Also, after watching the clip a second time, I can’t help thinking this guy became the character he played in ‘ The Pursuit Of Happiness’. You know, the same way people say Tupac ‘became’ Bishop from Juice?

    His costume is more um, interesting, than the position he’s in. I actually think this picture is a good show of athleticism and flexibility. I’m a woman though, so maybe this position might be a no-no in man culture and I don’t know it. Granted, it’s not often you see a man with his legs wide open that way. Just imagine there’s a bike between his legs and he’s doing a no-feet, mid-air bike trick.

    The news is literally the worst thing in the world. They share pointless information I could have went the day without knowing. The talk about over weight cats five times a day, or say something rediculous in one of 000’s of headlines to get you to continue watching. They did a story talking about organic foods, on how espensive they’re . They went on explaining that we “may” be wasting our money they didn’t say are, they know how to use words. They summed it up with the worst note of all saying, with these studies they found no trace of additional nutrients in organic foods. I nearly lossed it, being a person that loves organics. I yelled at the t.v. No duh (other word used) that’s not what organics are for, its for pesticides. Haha and at the very end they say “though the food was no tested for pesticides.” Oh my, are they serious?

    Great to hear your thoughts on this area.
    What a scary place to be though.

    To believe that truth can be identified and articulated amongst the myriad emotions and motivations of a man’s heart – that is a bold and foolhardy statement.

    It is said that a respect for the things that you do not understand is the true beginning of wisdom.
    Therefore – to position wisdom in the eye of the individual opens the door to a realm of floored multiplicity.

    There are as many opinions as there are voices – but truth has always been and will always be truth. That truth is truth to you is not truth.

    As for me? The older I get, the more I realize how little I know.

    What you saying is so real (as always). The mind is so powerful and if we as humans only knew how to use it. We can control our own destiny based off of our thought process. If we think negative things we get negative results, if we think positively then that’s what we bring off. Instead of embracing our thoughts and feelings, we become slaves to it leaving us trapped and failures. What you give off to the universe you get back. Thx for your great mind and sharing your positive thoughts with us.

It may not be tap water from your town but it is tap water from someone else’s! SURPRISE SURPRISE! [Even if that town is in FIJI] I stopped buying it a long time ago. I bought a plastic bottle and fill up my own tap water 4 free (kinda). This also cuts down on plastic and helps us go Green. Just something to think about.

    the more time you spend worrying about how someone else was given what you had deserved, or worked harder for, or was more qualified for, the less time you spend on finding out how to make yourself the person who does deserve, or who worked the hardest for, or is the most qualified.

    One night, I was surfing the tube and I came across a show called I Woke up In The Morgue. The people suffered from a medical condition known as catalepsy. Basically, they passed out and would have no signs of life, but they could feel and hear everything going on around them. One lady got taken to a morgue THREE different times because they thought she was dead!!! This lady was completely conscious of where she was and what was going on… one time she was in the morgue for THREE days with dead bodies and everything. It is amazing the kinds of conditions people can have that we don’t even know about.

    So dead????

    I started playing before reading your “explanation”. While playing I tried to draw parallels between tetris and life… one thing that struck me was that it begins going slow in the begining – as is life in the early years.. you want things to go faster, things to happen… only, when you get older it feels like life goes too fast and you have to make important decissions even faster – just like in the game.

  • 635. a-nat  |  October 13th, 2008 at 12:28 PM

    i also began playing before reading the explanation (i have a secret tetris fetish myself LOL). as i began to think about the correlation between the game and life, to me it seemed that as you go along, yes it starts slow, but for those prepared for what life throws at them, the faster it gets, the more one can rely on previous lessons learned to assist them in placing the pieces in the right spots. even when the pieces seem like they’re about to hit the ceiling, patience causes you to wait for that long 4 block piece to bring the walls down. so to me, with age and experience comes the ease of playing the game.

    Likely because its mostly true…. theres a large population of people who think they are being themselves but arent aware of the many things that influence us to conform with a norm that society dictates… standing out is so subliminally frowned upon that as much as i try to be aware of it i keep noticing how its affected me

    i just look it like our life experiences differ so much that if everyone was truly “themselves” they WOULD would be that different. (tho if that were the case, it wouldnt be seen as different)

    and i guess that the people that DO stand out, since they’re gonna be scrutinized anyway say f*** it and go balls to the wall with it…. like homeboy… lol

    I often ponder upon this idea on a daily basis. It’s like for ever incident that occurs in my life and other peoples lives, I try to comprehend various ways I could approach the event and the possible reactions to each way I approach the incident. (I think this is a run on sentance, so sorry for my horrible grammar.) Then afterward I would think about whether or not I’ve misused my time thinking about all that, when I could’ve been doing something sustantial with my time. But then like you said about putting what you’ve apprehended into action, I do that most of the time. So am I wasting my presious time?
    But who’s to determine whether what you do is a significent or an absurd way to expend time?

    You are only misusing your time if you are doing nothing with it, then by default you waste yourself. There are no accidents when you are aware. Only you can determine what’s valuable or worthy of your time, no one else. Always ask yourself this, “Where is this next decision likely to lead?” -you will save time by doing this.

    And if you don’t set a high bar for your time-self, no one will follow you towards greatness if you can’t navigate. What would make each breath you expend worth your effort toward something?

  • 697. Eli Velez  |  October 28th, 2008 at 9:57 PM

    Honesty makes you feel better because you know that you did the right thing by not sugar coating the situation in which the perosn might find themselves in be it good or bad. Being Supportive helps the person feel valid on their mistake (assuming it is a mistake) but the minute it goes wrong they say you should have been honest with them… So be honest if you want to be at peace with yourself and supportive if you fear what you might say could be taking out of context.

  • 698. Carol Ann  |  October 28th, 2008 at 10:07 PM

    I think it depends on the situation, and the person involved…in some cases it’s better to be supportive, things that ain’t that important, but sometimes you have to be honest to prevent the other person from getting hurt or making a fool of him/herself.

    Take for instance some people on “idol” they really get hurt when the jury tells them they can’t sing (and some really make a fool of themselves). And they don’t understand it, because everybody close to them told that he or she could sing very beautiful (they were being supportive). Maybe a stupid example:) but it was the first thing that i thought about…

    I’m sure theres a pretty nice number of people who just aren’t mature enough to think about the affect that word has, and mature enough to break a norm or go against the grain of their peers. That’s hard as shit for grade school kids, whose confidence is hinged on how well they fit in (for most, anyway).

    Realistically, I will go on living my life the way I have been. I will continue to set my career goals high and continue my quest for self improvement. The impact Obama would have on my life if he wins Presidency, is that I will have so much more confidence to where this country is headed, and that feeling would be priceless. I have faith that if Obama is elected President, he will always make decisions based on the well being of all Americans and that in itself will make me a happier person.

    Side Note:
    I have a theory that there are many Anti-Obama protestors as opposed to Pro-McCain supporters, there is a major difference between the two. One of the two is insinuating hate and I have refused to fall into the trap. Since day one I have never been an Anti-McCain ranter, I have been an Obama supporter. I have been a supporter by by getting Obama’s vision out there by talking to the people around me about his plans for a better America. Obama for President 2008 if you want America to Progress.

    My “HOPE” is that there will actually be “CHANGE”. It saddens me that every article written states race in the first paragraph. I understand race makes this a historic moment, however, his policies have also never really been tried here either; does that have historic meaning? I have read more posts saying nothing more than “Yes, a black president” then I have saying how proud people are of the policies they may see implemented. In turn, that only leaves me with more questions… Does his policies even matter or do people just want to see a black man in office? I’m kind of terrified to see exactly what happens from this point forward. In my opinion, it just seems that too many people still cannot look deeper then the pigment of ones skin.

    That just happened! – Sums it up perfectly. I stumbled upon your page through Kanye’s Univercity and I realy appreciate your thoughts and point of view. It’s refreshing. I’m an artist first, and my day job comes second, but I deal with mindless cubicle people most of my day for now and reading you page every now and then helps… A LOT. With that said, I agree with your post along with some of the first comment. I’m interested to see “CHANGE”. While I understand this is a milestone in history, I still am awaiting finding out how he plans to execute all his proposed change. He is hands down the greatest orator of our time. I am NOT blown away either, esspecially after I heard him be “FOR” and “AGAINST” gun control in the SAME SENTENCE. Any man that can speak in such context will gain the confidence of people on both sides of the coin. Also Mccain putting his whole campaign on Barack’s inexperience and then getting… well you know, Sarah “I wanna lay that pipeline” Palin. People do and did see past skin tone, the man made people believe. The election was a landslide, which means he did unite the country in a certain way. He had won the election with only 60 percent of the votes counted. He made people believe that change was going to come from us MAKING it happen. First time voters made up 11% of the votes. With that said you simply must have faith. Have faith in the people and have faith in him and that the people did make the right choice.

  • 726. Euro  |  November 6th, 2008 at 1:57 AM


    I shared with my family and friends the following: “It’s interesting how I’ve always imagined Obama as our next President. When he was officially elected last night, it felt completely natural, as if it were always going to be so.” Moreover, the media consistently communicates messages of apprehension with respect to Obama’s ability to deliver. I like to remain unbiased and believe in what my eyes and heart tell me. What the media and critics forget is that his “Newly acquired” responsibility has always been a responsibility to him. Think about that. What we care about so much as a people has always been engraved in the foundation of Obama’s every intent. The only difference now is that he has a higher, more visible, and a World embraced platform to follow through. Despite the media’s comments, it is very hard to look in his eyes and not see someone who is genuine and so serious about delivering. Like many of us, I believe Obama is poised and is “Prepared” to follow through with expectations of only success. Time will reveal the power of his true passion and dedication as a contributor in this lifetime and more importantly as our new President. They are all in for a warm surprise.

    [It's like Kanye or you for example Sakiya...You guys have always been talented leaders and superstars. It was just a matter of letting the world catch up to understanding that!]

    Also, please let me add that as a developing project manager (any success requires sound project management), I find it overwhelmingly rewarding that a power like the U.S. government who is normally so rigid in their efforts to advertise and portray themselves to the public, can innovate the way they conduct a campaign. Obama’s campaign was so well managed and marketed that it will be used in higher education and Corporate America as a benchmark for successful project management. The reason this means so much to me is because my innovative approaches have frequently been met with resistance to maintain the brand of the organization or party. I’ve always understood what they meant, however I also realized how much they were missing out by being so rigid and unwilling to embrace forward thinking approaches.

    My name is Euro and I’m proud to have shared my views and say that this is the first blog I have ever communicated on. In closing, I’d like to share my passion and summarize it in one sentence: “I have always been and always will be passionate about the way consumers experience media via emerging technology.”

    Back for the first time,

  • 727. arcitek  |  November 6th, 2008 at 8:02 AM

    As the president elect Obama’s speech came to a close last night, I could not help but sit and reflect, while trying to hide my tears for the others in the room.

    His words inspire all of us to be thinkers, dreamers, leaders, activists, opportunists, and most importantly, individuals. I was blessed with a family who taught me to see colorblind. I believe we can never deny or forget history, but we can decide that as a generation, it is time to start making our own history. I am so very proud to be an American today. Yes we can, yes we can.

The couples would be too busy laughing, while at the same time holding their breaths, as they sat there *giggles*. The mind of most inventors.

    a thing that has no boundaries always has a good and bad sides.

    the bad thing about some hip hop music though is that any kind of bad language can be used and accepted and listened to. by some artists and people.

    Let me also add that I love hip hop of all my heart. For me good hip hop is like poetry! Not that I read peoptry but compensate through hip hop artists like Common. or Lupe. or Kanye.

It makes me sad when I think about how bad people in third world countries have it and the lengths people of those countries are willing to take on, just to make it one day at a time… to survive? I feel that I don’t know how to react because I AM a spoiled American and I will be honest enough to say that I don’t do enough for those who are worst off than I am. What is the answer? What do you think we can do to make a direct impact?

    The way I see it, you can never take anything as fact from someone’s mouth.. It’s always a perspective which I guess would make it opinion. All you can do is view the world from your perspective and form your own opinion. Just make sure you THINK! Shout out Sakiya

  • 745. fatos  |  November 12th, 2008 at 4:25 PM

    you ask the person who is talking if – what he is saying – is his opinion or a fact! :)

    on the other hand, facts and opinions don’t have much in common (my opinion – not a fact :-) .

    I am the most uncomfortable being myself when speaking in public.

    My field of work is in Education, which means that I have to be professional at all times. I feel uncomfortable because I believe I have to “put on a face”. In my personal life, I am an extremely outspoken/silly person. In my career life, especially in public speaking, I have to come across as being confident and “professional”. I do realize that my lack of confidence in public speaking leads to the discomfort I feel, but I also believe that because I am not myself in a group setting, my level of discomfort is challenged that much more.

    I am the most uncomfortable when trying to be me, when I meet strangers and they look at me and think I must be a snob. So it is unnerving trying to prove that I am not judgmental or a snob, even though I look sophisticated and speak educated. I sometimes feel uncomfortable when going back to my hood because they don’t realize that is where I am from. I also feel uncomfortable around snobby people because they seem to take meekness for weakness and I have to let the hood impose my strength and swagger.

    The most important thing to me is love, having a husband and children. I have been single for four years and celebate the last year and I so don’t want to live like this the rest of my life. Don’t get me wrong singleness has peaks and vallies but my sex drive is like a trucker and it is torture being celebate, but I can not let anyone touch me. I basically need love. It is important for me to feel needed, desired, and loved and to give love. And last but not least is making it to heaven I so don’t want to miss that. But I am complex.

    “And I believe the best thing about an opinion is everybody has a right to one…”

    (Really?) Here, you are talking about right action and coming to the defense of someone? Either you allow or deny someone their opinion – how can you say that everyone is right but need to defend and clarify other people’s opinions?

    Just some thoughts further to what you were saying; There is no doubt about it – motivations at one point or another must manifest themselves through the actions of the individual.

    You will know someone’s heart – ie their motivations, by what comes out of their life.

    The oft quoted phrase rings true – the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

    Motives are one thing – but actions are the true defining aspect of a person. So intent or content? It doesn’t matter – they must be aligned for their to be any growth, fulfillment or value added to humanity

    You cannot separate intent from content. To think that everyone’s opinion and therefore actions are right is to walk a cliff edge to insanity. It seems that people have become so open minded that their brains are falling out.

    Question – how can you call someone to a higher level of living if you so easily justify the level on which they are on? Their is truth and falsity, right and wrong. If not, then there is no higher level and no need for a thinkers thoughts.

    This kinda coincides with the question that was raised in bible class last night. The question was.. hold on, let me get my notes so I can quote it correctly.. Back! ” What are the keys to greatness” God said,” He would make our name great” My opinion is theological and that’s what governs who I. To be a number one leader of whatever, you must first know how to serve, and how to be the least then you have the capacity to be great. I learned as a student in Early Childhood Education that it is not the product that is important but the process. Greatness often comes with a great price God often challenge us with the oppositions that we are appointed to help others overcome. In order to be great you have to find the one thing that you are really good at and work it. Some people forget that it is God that gives us power to get rich. As a student in Child and Family Life Education, I learned to be autonomous in decision making, and that trusting your instinct is important. So I guess that leads to my question, who, how, when, and what is stopping us from being number one?

    Love the interview, it allowed me to learn somethings. I liked the fact you are always over prepared, I would make sure I could answer any question but having three things to concert that problem is something I hadn’t though of before.

    This is just a little piece of criticism… maybe you should have three camera’s; one pointing at you, one at the interviewee and another on a wide showing both of you. I feel it would make the production better and look more professional, maybe its budget that stops you doing it but what is said in the interviews is really good, so surely it’s worth it. Also you could then sell the interviews on DVD..gaining back the money.

    Look forward to the other interviews

    aRCe, for a single cam shot its really good, its not like the camera is all over the place…it’s a pretty steady and consistent thru out…but I went to your blog and you’re majoring in Broadcast in school so of course you would have something to say…

    And plus it’s for a blog…not TV, I’m sure if it were for TV things would be different…and like Tothetop said…it’s a conversation. And Ronn does have that wise guy vibe to him…LOL! and what’s up with the cigar???

Ronn has his core values really defined and I guess people who don’t have any values themselves mistake trying to do anything to reach your goals as being unreasonable.

    Great Conversation. and whoeva was talking about the camera angles and such is buggin…have you eva seen a Consequence video…now that shit is crazy…I literally threw up from being dizzy watching one of his video…no diss, or is it? anyway..I like how this was captured. a very honest, raw conversation. Thanks.

  • 835. aRCe  |  December 8th, 2008 at 3:33 PM

    I wasn’t saying this is a bad interview, I liked it and for a single camera the camera guy did good. Maybe cause I’m a broadcast student it made a difference but I found all the camera moving annoying and thought that it would have been better if there were three cameras shooting it.
    I understand its a blog video and therefore it doesn’t have to be high budget or look good but I thought because the content was really good and people would buy this stuff Sakiya could up the production values and sell it.

    As for the Consequence videos I think they’re alright because they’re meant to look as if your in the room with these famous people. They’re less of interviews and more vox pops because they’re spurr of the moment stuff, unlike this interview which, although isn’t just simple answer questions is clearly set up (i.e. they decided to meet and talk about business)

    So yeah I understand that people think I was bugging for no reason but I was actually more praising but giving a little bit of creative criticism. Sakiya can take it which ever way he wants and I’m definitely gonna watch the next ones.

    I’ve been put in the position for a while now where my family seems to be in the outfield and my friends have no problem with stepping up to the plate to offer me a helping hand.
    I haven’t been able to visit your blog for weeks and now, as I’ve finally have the opportunity to get online, your site is the first I visited- hoping to be somewhat enlightened.
    That is exactly what I am.

    You never cease to amaze me.

  • 849. Mo  |  December 16th, 2008 at 9:11 PM

    Man.. I like that. But I think every family unit functions completely differently. Some families click, some don’t. I can’t imagine how many factors would affect it…

    My personal experience has taught me my family thinks they’re supporting me when they’re not… they want me to be financially secure skipping over being secure within myself, which has never really been addressed to me. They want me to live a comfortable life but I’ve kinda polarized against them and just went the personal fulfillment route. I honestly don’t know if their support is genuine or obligatory (our culture is much more family-oriented that American culture), but all I know is I’ve never really felt as if I fit in my family.

    I definitely feel like if there were no cultural obligations some families would disperse, but there is a certain something that you feel towards people that you grow up with or that raise you. Some people more than others.

  • 850. Et Cetera  |  December 17th, 2008 at 12:53 AM

    Families are definitely not biological. I’ve learned that I need a healthy balance of the two because sometimes friends will tell you what you want to hear rather than what you need to hear. I can count on my biological family to pretty much keep it real at all times. When it comes down to it though it takes time to find out who really has your back, related or not.

    Yea, final statement is money.

    I think doing what you want to do is the harder path most of the time. There’s so much pressure to make money first, happiness(a.k.a. comfort) later that its a risk, to stray off the beaten path.

    There’s a certain fear of failure, I think. I mean if you love something so much, and you don’t succeed at it, what do you do?

    Not to say that this fear is founded, but very often are our fears unfounded.

    Happiness is as such, a state of mind or being. Those three things are a large portion of ones life, however they do not account for all happiness. You have day to day occurances that would disturb any man based upon the morals or code in which he conducts his life by.
    With that said, is one ever truly happy? Or are those just blissful moments that mask the sadness by which one lives their life? Or is sadness just a temporary emotion that simply accentuates the beauty that is life?
    Can one really be happy without sadness or melancholy and vice versa?

  • 877. fladap  |  January 29th, 2009 at 1:42 PM

    I totally understand where your coming from with this idea, it reverts to Ghandis yearn for us to “question everything” and find truth in us and the world around us.

    But to not “believe in nothing” is the SAME as “believing in something” because in the end you hope that your decision to believe or not was right for “defining your life”. So there couldn’t be a drastic paradigm shift.

    “…I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else” c s lewis

  • 878. leandra  |  January 29th, 2009 at 2:52 PM

    fladap, i concur that believing in ‘nothing’ is believing in ’something,’ but it is definitely a dramatic paradigm shift.

    you go from “i think this is important” to “i don’t think necessarily think it is. why or why not?”

    it will be however dramatic you allow it to be. when you start to look at social conventions such as relationships and marriage, religion, social, economic and political structure, beauty, education, etc., you can get into some really deep things. and your mind MAY change about a lot.

    this is an interesting path to travel down because the hardest and most important part isn’t the releasing of what you formerly believed, but what you begin to believe after that process.

    it is totally freeing, yet ridiculously scary, to release your preconceived notions in order to define your own world. i’ve done it once before and i need to do it again.

    In cities, people are scared and so much nonsense goes on regularly that we do overlook things, sometimes as a way of protecting ourselves, but sometimes as a way of maintaining our self-involvement.

    I can’t say that if I saw a man sprawled out on the ground I’d call or help; I believe I might have the same sense of “what do you want me to do?” that these people had. HOWEVER, the people who should really be examined are the ones who were standing around LOOKING at the man, aware of what happened and what was happening. The passersby are really less at fault.

    This is merely an example of what happens when you’re in your own world. There are so many other examples of when we could reach out and help, but we choose not to intervene and give all that’s required: a little.

  • 888. leandra  |  January 30th, 2009 at 5:02 PM

    I don’t understand why people would want to know a lot of completely irrelevent yet personal information about others.
    I don’t want anybody to know where I am all the time, at what time, when I left, what I ate, whom I met etc. etc. And certainly I don’t want to know that about others either!!!

  • 901. moe  |  February 17th, 2009 at 5:22 PM

    Very difficult (general) question to answer…..

    Common sense i think is the logical clear headed analysis and reaction to a situation, based on the knowledge youve accumulated

    that being said, creating a top 5 would probably end up being very random without a particular topic and situation…

    but i’ll try

    salesmen are not to be trusted. because of the nature of the field, not because of particular individuals. i used to be a salesman…. they know how to play with words and make something sound real sweet. when talking to a salesman, you cant let their sensational style make you start seeing everything as an upside, you have to stay sober and objective

    speaking of sober, i just came back from court for a DUI. to me its common sense that the justice system is inherently flawed and cannot exist any other way. theres no way for it to be perfect without invasion of privacy. that being said its also common sense to me that police can often suffer from egotism. ‘absolute power corrupts absolutely’ and some people dont deserve authority. watch out for these guys

    its common sense to me that without a positive attitude you’re not going anywhere. and that fear, doubt, and worry are completely useless emotions (not to say i never experience them)

    its common sense to me that the only way to fight stereotypes is to stop allowing ourselves to be stereotypes… stop tailoring ourselves to the boxes society says we should fit into. whether its class, race, gender, or religious beliefs, if we ascribe wholly to any one man’s philosophies, we are indeed fools

    its common sense to me that ’sense’ automatically entails perspective. someone standing next to a fire senses its hotter than someone standing farther… and its common sense that that was probably a horrible analogy

    I completely agree that men shouldn’t stand by idly as though this is a woman’s only issue. One part of the reason women get exploited is because men exploit them.

    Another reason they get exploited is because they allow themselves to be. I’m happy that this girl was able to play her cards in such a way that she could leave unharmed. I’m happy that this man didn’t get the opportunity to show her an even darker side to his personality.

    But WHY did she leave with him? WHY did her friends cosign that decision? If they said nothing, they cosigned. Inaction is an action.

    So many young (and not so young) women are so caught up in this Hollywood fairytale that they can’t call a spade a spade. At 20, she’s young and that clouds her decision-making, but that was stupid. I’m not saying that from a place of judgment because I’ve made stupid decisions like that too; only I ended up at my destination safely.

    Women and men need to teach their daughters, sisters, female cousins and friends to stop going after men with money just because they have money. That allure, I think, is what ends up being harmful for so many more people than just the individual holding that ideology. Men who don’t drive sports cars or have wealth to flaunt have an enormous challenge in finding partners not because they’re not good men or because they can’t play the role as providers, but because they can’t play it as well as women like to think rich men can.

    It’s interesting that with all the opportunities that are available to women, at the end of the day, they tend to want that 1950s housewife role. “You make the money and take care of me.” Women can have their own now, but they either don’t want to work for it, or they mostly want to make that money solely based off their bodies…and then complain about exploitation and objectification.

    The ideological shift away from this can’t only come from the work and transformation of women; it has to be holistic and inclusive to men. When you seek to empower women by only building the esteem of women and educating them, there becomes an inevitable battle between men and women. So much of so-called “female empowerment” has been based around providing economic opportunity that is or is almost equal. All this has done is reinforce that a person’s value is rooted in finances, which is a huge mistake. The role of a housewife was never quantified. There was certainly a value, but it was more qualitative than quantitative. All that was known was that she didn’t have an income.

    It seems kind of off-topic to talk about housewives and pimping in the same conversation, but I say all that to highlight the fact that what we value in life doesn’t always have a price tag. In fact, much of what we value in life cannot be bought. Still, young women are constantly allured by fantasies of Prince Charming wifing them up and ridding them of any possible financial concern.

    It’s a hoax, especially when those young women don’t have any qualitative value to quantify in the first place.

  • 914. moe  |  February 25th, 2009 at 3:29 PM

    I’ve been trying to tell the ladies that for years, man. But logically, it’s difficult to actually expect someone to cash out their beliefs that easily. I mean, we’re talking about MILLENIA of social standards. Men are taught to be protectors and defenders, while women are the prize. Women are caretakers of the household who’s prize is security. To get a woman you usually have to demonstrate financial, physical, and mental security (not so much mental which is F*CKED up. See: Divorce rate). So if homeboy rolls up in a Maserati, its like:

    “Well damn! I heard [insert famous rapper] talking about a Maserati! You’re telling me I have a chance to get in one?”

    Done deal.

    And the worst part of all this, is that this paradigm is not even being left alone to live or die on its own. It’s being ADVERTISED on a daily, hourly, (minutely?) basis, reminding us CONSTANTLY what we’re supposed to think, want, be.

    Basically I think the world we live in is changing from the barbaric way it used to be. We are much more intelligent and we can use our brains for far greater things. With that change should come a change in what we search for in a mate. This is a social norm that’s got some serious catching up to do.

  • 915. moe  |  February 25th, 2009 at 3:46 PM

    You said it. People are limited by fear and uncertainty, which only we can allow in our heads

    limit is the opposite of freedom right? We have all the freedom in the world, its our choice what we do with it. and whatever we choose not to do with it is this manmade concept of ‘limit’

  • 918. fatos  |  February 26th, 2009 at 9:28 AM

  • 919. leandra  |  February 26th, 2009 at 1:14 PM

    The other day, I thought of this:

    If it doesn’t matter what others believe if you don’t believe it, then it shouldn’t matter what others believe if you DO believe it.

    That thought gives me the freedom and incentive to play and live in my own world, but, first, to create it. No limitations.

    As Tony Robbins likes to say, “I will not be denied!”

  • 920. sam204  |  March 1st, 2009 at 4:49 PM

    I think limits are placed because of the approach to conventional education, which views the mind as an empty box waiting to be filled. Maybe we should view education from a different perspective where skills we’ve “learned”, are really things that are already embedded in us – we just needed a teacher to pull it out of us. The same goes for achieving greatness. It’s already inside each and everyone of us; we just need to find something or someone to pull it out of us.

  • 921. rAWnYy  |  March 2nd, 2009 at 10:19 PM

    There are no limitations to the mind except those that we acknowledge – Napoleon Hill

    I believe we create our own limitations depending on how we feel about something or how someone else feels about it. I think sometimes we value other people opinion’s more then our own and that in itself can limit us. We are who we hang out with, which I believe is true, you have the power to uplift yourself or become influenced by your surroundings. Maybe the difference is do you know it or not.

Repeating that we are over and over again comes across heavy-handed and simple. Last note: many homo sapiens sapiens’ can be happy.

  • 925. elle  |  March 5th, 2009 at 11:52 PM

  • 926. elle  |  March 6th, 2009 at 12:05 AM

    the show was interesting. i look forward to tuning in in the future.

    i definitely agree with sakiya’s comment abt there being offenses to which one could (and likely should) expect an ass whooping– male and female both. do i think it’s right for a man to hit a woman? absolutely not, but in alignment with that belief is the belief that women should not hit men. it’s only fair. how one-sided and unrealistic for a woman to think that she can actually intentionally, with force, hit a man and there will be no recourse? i do feel that in that situation a man could, and for the sake of both parties probably should, just walk away, but that is being idealistic. there is a such thing as someone being pushed to behave a certain way, and once they are there, one shouldn’t put the blame on one party.

    on the other side of the same coin, i agree with leandra abt ppl behaving a certain way bc they’ve never been checked, so it is complicated. and yes, we are doing our children a disservice by not teaching them the realities of life. “no a man shouldn’t hit you, but don’t you hit a man and not expect to be hit.” that’s a more appropriate thing to say to your daughter.

  • 927. the open mind  |  March 6th, 2009 at 4:58 PM

    Hey, befor I asnswer your questions, I want to acknowledge the fact that you represented God as a women. I like that. Anyhow here are my thoughts on the above:

    I. I think that morality and judgement should come from oneself, but many people often take it from society. Most people will agree that something is morally wrong without even thinking if they truly agree with it but b/c society says it is and most individuals would rather fit the mold then think for themselves, I should say are too scared to think for themselves, they go with the know instead of questioning there own feelings about a subject. I don’t beleive an action can be morally wrong if it’s in private or if it is known, it is wrong if YOU think it is, but like I said most people don’t think for themselves. Wether they realize it or not they let society, God, and othere people think for them by the actions they take.

    I used to do the cross every time I passed a cemetary b/c it was what you did. I never once hesitated to not do it, until one day when me and my mother were driving and I caught myself in mid-cross and asked myself “Why am I doing this?”. Until that moment I would feel wrong and judged for not. I realized I am not going to do something I don’t beleive in or for that matter have a reason to do so. With that being said, I see no wrong in either or. It is up to you and only you to decide or let others decide for you wether something is wrong or right.

    Maybe self fulfilling prophecy a little? i’m not a big fan of creating terms like this one, because then you get a culture of people that want to fit in that box (i.e. gangsta, prep, b-boy, hippie, etc, etc.) and then it gets played out. the cool nerd catagory is fast growing. but hey, i guess theres enough positive results to being a cool nerd to justify this term!

  • 929. moe  |  March 12th, 2009 at 12:54 PM

    i think morality comes from that “outside source” you mentioned in question 1, but i also think it’s closely linked to the concept of God. I’m not sure if I believe in God or not, but I do believe there is somethingggg that connects all of us, and this ’something’ gives us hints at what we should and should not be doing. Let’s call it your ‘gut’ feeling for kicks.

    but cultures tend to define things for us. each person inherently has his or her own code of ethics, but it is overwritten by the code society gives us.

    basically im with the open mind (ha) that morality has to come from ourselves, but i just think that society power is so overwhelming the only way to break out of the very closed-minded thinking of culturally defined morals is leave remove yourself from that culture and start over

    i think thats how people ‘find themselves’

Simple because he has shown us the truth: “man is man and The Almighty is The Almighty”. Yes, there is a difference. His promotion of education as the first of all in this life is profound. and his manta: “obedience is better than sacrifice” … Every time.

    2) The persons who have single-handed contributed the most to the betterment of my life would be my father and mother. Without them there would be no me. Thank you!

  • 938. Dynamic  |  March 17th, 2009 at 6:55 PM

    A person’s sex drive can be constructed depending on their experiences. Take porno actresses for instance. They are developed to perform a certain way in order to satisfy viewers. It might seem as though their sex drive and energy level is at an all time high, but they are trained into that structure. That IS NOT their natural energy nor sex drive.

    Their inability to act based on their NATURAL sex drive causes the psychological formation of lack of conscious. The industry’s control of sexual behavior never allows the actresses to perform based on pure human behavior. This is why many of the actresses are subdued to changing their bodies. Breast size, weight, and looks are few of the many changes made by their inability to feel comfortable with themselves based on what “viewers” want in a female. Porno actresses lack self conscious as well as self confidence because of the controlled state.

    Confidence plays a huge part in sex drive. Without confidence an individuals performance may be low ranked, therefore, bringing the individuals sex drive at an all time low. Confidence is more powerful than sex itself. Confidence is paralleled to ones success in life and paralleled to ones sex drive.

    Sex with great confidence is just the icing of the cake. :)

    What do you think?

  • 939. elivelez  |  March 17th, 2009 at 7:32 PM

    1. I think the person who has contributed the most for the betterment of society has to be….. Im going to be honest i cannot think of anybody right now but I do have another answer which may or may not apply. The public person who has had the most impact in my life is Kanye West. I do not say this as a person who is awed by fame I say this as a person who appreciates the music and creative process behind his music. I feel as if i live through those songs… Those songs embody my life.. So yea thats my answer

    2. There are a couple of people who have had a huge role in the betterment of my life. My best friend Sharon, she taught me to always strive for more, never be close minded about other cultures, and to always keep the ones you love near and dear to you. The other person would be my cousin Dwayne, this man gave me guidance when needed the most. He taught me alot and now every move I make, I do it to make him proud of the man I have become.. Sorry the answer was kind of long but it was a good question.

    3. The person who has benefited the most from my betterment is and always will be my little sister Ashley. My sister means the world to me, I feel as if she looks up to me as a template for life. If i decide to become a better person so will she. So for this reason I tell my self….I will not lose

    Actually I’m in the process of reading a book called “Think and Grow Rich” (which I would recommend to ANYone that visits this blog). It’s by this guy hired by Carnegie to do a study on the underlying philosophies of about 500 highly successful people, and it took him around 25 years to complete the research.

    Anyway, coincidentally, the very chapter I’m on right now is dealing with sexual energy and how it is one of the most powerful forces in our lives (along with love, fear, etc. in a list of 10, most of which being positive). He dubbed the technique “Sex Transmutation” which essentially meant directing your sexual energy into other tasks. I’m not sure how yet, but I also haven’t finished the chapter. I just thought y’all would find that interesting.

    Check that book out!

    I’m at the point where I’m recognizing this truth. The only constant is change. Mistakes cause you to switch things up. A lot of the pain in our lives, I think, is attributed to us resisting change. You can’t fight the inevitable. Life is change. Deny it, but you will always lose.

    This humorous youtube preview is actually realistic in an animated process. Being 18 years of age, I notice the dependability of social networking systems of my generation. I happen to think that these social networks are greats ways to network, socialize, and continuing some sort of relationship with old friends, however, the need to express yourselves publicly on PERSONAL issues should not be displayed because their are many risk factors involved. Ex: Job interviewing

    Many jobs in today times GOOGLE individuals to get a better understanding of the interviewee. If there are disturbing comments, images, or any displays on the interviewee’s homepage, their is a possibility that their self expression will intrude in bettering your chances of receiving that job.

    Think about it.

    At the risk of not being able to receive a job and get that paycheck every week, I would rather conserve my personal issues.

    Overall, this video is HILARIOUS!

    Yo, Sakiya I’m listening to your blogtalkradio and I like how you touched on Napoleon Hills “Sexual transmutation” because I read his book “Think & grow rich” alot because it’s some good information and advice. I also recommend “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne. The Death subject was dope. My OPINION on death is, since everything is Energy and Matter and our body dies in the end maybe our energy or spirit whatever you wanna call it is transferred? In The Secret they talk about how we are energy and how we send out frequencys into the universe (what you think about or believe will happen, will happen) kinda like Napoleon Hill said that our brain is a broadcasting and recieving station. If energy never dies maybe when our body die’s our energy transfers to another life? because the space between (ether) like Napoleon Hill said vibrates at a rapid rate. It makes you wonder about deja vu’s, outer space, and dreams maybe we’re living our lives all over again? kinda like behavioral patterns. We are all human with commonalities and I think religions are guidelines to how to live your life thats why theres so many? but all relate to some type of ending and so called spirit, maybe this spirit is energy? Napoleon Hill talks about sexual transmutation and how you can stimulate your mind to think on the level of “Genius” to tap into your creative imagination. Meaning, we can inhance our energy. If genuis’s can inhance their energy maybe thats why everybody is in awe of their accomplishments because they dont think on their level of plain. Which brings me to my other thing I want to talk to you about, genuis’s. I was watching “A Beautiful mind” the other night and it made me wonder, is there really a thin line between genius and crazy? or is it because genius’s understand so much that normal people dont understand their train of thought and genius are misunderstood (Idiot savants?). I believe humans are lazy by nature, animals are born with instinct’s to do things, some people dont put forth the effort to think in depth or train their thoughts but humans are given the right to think which is why I like your movement. I am not an atheist I’m just undecided lol! Now I’m just rambling on but all this is just my beliefs and I just wanted to share. I dont mean to impose on others beliefs like I said this is just my opinion. If you can touch on “The Genius” subject that would be dope thanks, PEACE!

    One more question. If man has created everything he has thought of, if there is proof of life (us) is it safe to say that theres proof that there could be more life out there in outer space? I dont wanna be ignorant and say only we exist but if we exist are we proof that life is else where because we’re here.

    Personally, the things that I haven’t done in life to this point I regret the most. Decisions we’ve made in our lives we should never regret because they shape who we are, and once upon a time we truly believed in them.

  • 962. mikeyj  |  April 3rd, 2009 at 1:51 PM

    it is hard to regret those things we haven’t done, considering the fact that there is still time left to do them with. if you regret not doing something, what is preventing you from doing it? there are many many things i still wish to do and all it really takes from me is a real desire to do them. travel more. be with family more. read more. play more. so for me, i can only regret those things i have already done. i certainly regret many things i’ve done. generally things i’ve said or actions i’ve taken which were performed in haste or without incredible foresight. mistakes were never believed in. most of them were made, in fact, because of my ambivalence or inability to commit to something. hope that thought had enough think in it for you.

    I don’t know about sick. It’s money. It can’t buy happiness. A lot of media tries to keep people in this perpetual state of dissatisfaction. Telling them if they had x amount of money they would be free, happy, etc.., which is a lie. If everyone felt freedom and happiness was within their grasp, there would be a huge change.

    Also, I think a 90 year old who had one trillion would trade it all to be young again, which shows that youth is really priceless. A twenty-something who has minimal cash flow in that context could often be viewed as extremely wealthy.

    Insult. Obama is portrayed like a stereotype of a black male of the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, reducing him to a muscular animal. That is how slaveowners justified keeping slaves because to him they were only animals!

    So Basically Life is Simple but we (Humans) made it difficult (because of the seven deadly sins: jealousy, greed, pride, slothfulness, anger, gluttony, lust).

    Sidebar: I don’t think anger is a sin unless it affects your reaction.

    Example: I would be angry if someone stole something from me. Is that a sin?

    Now if I shot the person that stole it from me then here’s where I believe I’ve sinned. From my reaction out of anger.

  • 986. Eddie  |  April 14th, 2009 at 12:02 PM

    I agree with Ali…the quality of each post is great but you’re lacking in quantity.

    Honestly it’s annoying to check the blog (constantly) and not see anything new.

    Hire a ghost blogger to gain fluidity to the site. Let them be required to post at least three posts a day and you also could post like two a day.

    Five good quality post a day would do your site wonders imo.

    why particularly mosques?? ..of all of gods houses?? as if Muslims in particular, of all believers, “imprison” themselves in “house of god”… but not christians, not jews or other believers.

    that little detail, I don’t like! it says a lot somehow.

    This post speaks directly to situations that are going on in my life right now. It’s not that I am not doing anything, but it’s the people around me that like to knock what I am doing and my vision, simply because they do not have a vision that big. Thanks for posting this and reminding me to always do something and keep doing something no matter what. The thing that stood out most to me is “never let anything stop you from doing..even when you don’t know what you are doing.” So true. I believe that none of us truly know what we are doing, but it is those people who are not afraid of the unknown and not having all answers are those who really achieve. I see life as a never ending adventure and the best part of that is figuring your way through it. I wrote a lot, but I’m inspired.

  • 992. SkufL  |  April 15th, 2009 at 1:12 AM

    The Quote on that shirt is what has me thinking!Its very clever and deep! Personally I dont think dreamers sleep if they want to be successful(my opinon)because i dont sleep my damn knowing i have a vision and a expectation to meet in life. My friends think im crazy…i dont think i am yet and i’m only 18(usually adults dont sleep nd work harder than teens in a typical world!)but thats wrong. Its all about your drive….what your shooting for and knowing what it takes to get there! Its also funny because dreamers are supposed to sleep in order to dream..but how do u dream if u stay up righ?Well if u dream and want success…chances are ur dreams wont be in ur sleep no more…they’ll turn into reality!
    Besides that….i’ am also at a stage in life where i am driving blindly because i don’t know where i’m headed or whats in store for me! I just know what i’m doing is something i want! To me its the greatest feeling not knowing and just doing it! Its a rush with questions that leave you with a smile(once u knock ur fears away)!

    Great Post

    Man… I usually think of a true friend as someone I trust, someone that will stand by my side even if I’m MIA for a year, and act like nothing happened when I come back. Someone that allows me to grow in whichever direction I want to without negative criticism. Someone that supports me but won’t hesitate to call me out on some bullshit. A true friend to me is someone than effectively reflects who you are back at you, without any distortions.

    Put it this way… I don’t usually talk about what I consider a friend because feelings would be hurt!

    How can you not see the “good” in this?!
    The technology helps people who are suffering from disabilities or paralysis to control wheelchairs, play games, or type on a computer. Isn’t that beneficial in your opinion? Imagine yourself in the position of those people who desperately need this.

    Besides, some people are a bigger threat to other people and humanity, than technology or “iRobot” will ever be. (Bush & Cheney for example)

    Following is a response posted by Ketchum on behalf of The Clorox Company:

    On behalf of The Clorox Company, I would like to respond to Amy Tennery’s article titled “The Four Biggest Enviro-Scams,� in which she criticizes the Green Works brand. It is our belief that Ms. Tennery misinterpreted key product information about Green Works Natural Cleaners, and I would like to provide the following facts to put her conclusions into context.

    First of all, the Green Works brand is committed to using the highest level of natural ingredients in each product. The majority of Green Works natural products are recognized by the EPA’s Design for Environment program for using safe chemistry, and we are working with the EPA to get the remainder of our products in the program.

    Since our launch, the Green Works brand has been transparent in our labeling of ingredients, our definition of natural and the percentage of natural ingredients in our formulas (95+ percent). In fact, to the best of our knowledge, no other company making natural household cleaning products lists, on label, the percentage levels of natural ingredients in their natural products. In terms of transparency, the Green Works brand not only lists all our ingredients on labels and on our web site but we have broadly communicated our belief that natural products should:

    o Be made from plant- and mineral-based ingredients
    o Be made with biodegradable cleaning ingredients
    o Not be tested on animals

    Tennery is quick to dismiss the natural profile of an ingredient, implying that it’s more important to be environmentally sustainable. We believe both are important, which is why we are confident in the ingredient choices we have made for our formulas.

    Corn-based ethanol – Tennery states that the environmental community has targeted corn-based ethanol for being “neither cost effective nor eco-friendly,� but these complaints are for using corn-based ethanol as a fuel source. This has nothing to do with how we use corn-based ethanol in Green Works products. From our standpoint, we would rather use a plant-based ethanol in our products than a similar petrochemical-based ingredient.

    Sodium Lauryl Sulfate – Only Green Works Natural Dishwashing Liquid and Green Works Natural Dilutable Cleaner contain this ingredient. SLS can be an irritant at high concentration levels — similar to other natural ingredients, such as citric acid (lemons) or acetic acid (vinegar). As an ingredient in our dishwashing liquid and our dilutable cleaner, SLS is present at low levels and is safe for the consumer.

    We are actively continuing to evolve the Green Works brand – from the formulas (as natural options become more widely available), and to packaging (going towards 100% PCR).

    Finally, Tennery comments about our “perplexing� relationship with Sierra Club. From our standpoint, it’s pretty straightforward. The Green Works brand wanted to contribute to environmental conservation by supporting one of the largest, grassroots organizations in the U.S. We are proud to continue our financial support of Sierra Club today.

    The Green Works brand stands for powerful cleaning done naturally and we have stayed true to that promise. Our proposition is aimed at the mainstream consumer who is interested in natural products that clean, are affordable and easily accessible. We are achieving our goal to mainstream natural cleaning and are proud of our leadership position in the Natural Cleaning Category.

    a prostitute (save for certain extreme situations) is not a victim of anything but a defeatist attitude. Granted, that within the confines of the limits she may put on her own world, she has taken full advantage of the “tools” at her disposal* she has officially given up on any other possibilities.

    Seeking out these possibilities may be much more difficult, but that’s simply because someone in that degrading position may lack the confidence to believe its even possible. thus, its not a possibility.

    that being said, i applaud miss paglia for attempting to empower people who percieve they are powerless.

    * – I wanted to explore the use of “disposal” here and talk about what she’s throwing away.. but this comment is long enough as it is.

    That’s my 3 cents

    Too late to be forgiven? or too late for it to be legitimate?

    How about a situation where someone grows up, and apologizes, even when their act or misdeed is lost in memory? Is that not to be respected?

    Whether or not the apology is legit, to me, is the only consideration. Some people say sorry as a gut reaction, because they’re supposed to, not because they are SORRY

    Either way, assholes should be forgiven for their fuckups, even before they apologize. Not for them, but for your own peace of mind. Holding a grudge against someone just takes up space in your head. And its a negative emotion.. those just fester, nothing good comes from them. Let them deal with their own negative emotions, which guaranteed will result from their wrongdoings.

    Its much better to just avoid people who are not trustworthy.

    Always forgive, never forget

    Just in a nutshell the only reason drugs are illegal is because we live in such a capitalistic society that our government is hoarders of money. It would be merely impossible for the government to control the manufacturing of these drugs which in the end would would detrimental to their “money” minds because they wouldn’t be able to tax accordingly.

    As you’ve said before success doesn’t happen over night, it is a series of triumphs, a series of challenges to overcome. I think people fail to start on their journey because they can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. When the real beauty comes from walking blindly in the dark.

    I’m not sure about God. Many many many people believe that God is a gendered. They refer to him as a male. People say “I know he’s looking over me.” So if God is a guy, where did he come from?

    I’m not sure if I believe in God as an entity, but I believe in a force that has created life, and the environment we live within.

    To me this altercation relates the importance of acknowledging ones responsibility in a given situation. While the dogs actions were not within control of the woman, it was her responsibility because she was the catalyst that created the situation. Had the dog stayed in the car, or been on a leash, it would’ve been all good.

    Straight up, Kanye & Sakiya are inspiring a generation. The fact that you have become successful by following your hearts is incredibly inspiring to me.

    Eckhart Tolle focuses on this idea as well. I agree with it also. Every moment in life is a learning experience, it is our goal to take something away from it. From there, we can also choose our own destinies simply by the thoughts persist in our head.

    I don’t fully agree with you on your closing comment. Yes, a great idea without proper execution is worthless, but great execution with even a mediocre idea is still very valuable.

    As an example, think of stand-up comedy, you can give two people the same jokes/material which can be mediocre at best, the only difference is one person is Dan Rather and the other person happens to be Chris Rock. Who do you think will bring the jokes to life?? My bet is on Chris, why? because of his comic timing, his way with words, his body language…basically his approach and execution to the material/jokes.

    I really believe that great execution alone, can still generate acceptable if not exceptional results.

    Just my 2 cents. :)

  • 1130. Shawn  |  August 22nd, 2009 at 2:07 PM

    Couldn’t agree more with you Sakiya.

    Lately my friend and I have been getting into intense discussions on how everything we have come to know in our lives has been marketed to us in some way or another. Whether its expectations of having a wife, kids and a mortgage, how many hours a week you “should” work, how we define success, or even what is legal and illegal. These are all things that were decided by an individual(or group of) at some point and then ingrained into us over time.

    Its extremely refreshing once you begin to question and break down what is you’ve been taught, and almost “re-build” your life as you see fit. I have never felt so positive and optimistic knowing that my life and existence is mine to create.

    I own your books and enjoy reading your thoughts and views on life. Keep up the good work my friend! The sky’s the limit……or is it? lol

    Thanks again for the inspiration. I wouldn’t call you and Kanye my role models, however I do follow many of your beliefs and insight about how life should and can be lived.

    Although I’ve spent 16+ years in our educational system, I feel as though my creativity has been stifled by the formulaic life paths of those that have come before me.

    Nonetheless, I have an intense desire to share my thoughts with the world and go against the grain to leave my mark on people and leave a legacy.

    As I’ve mentioned on your site before, my site entitled Wine & Bowties, is my message to the world. It’s how I express myself, how I learn, how I share and how I grow.

    I thank you and I thank Kanye for your relentless desire to be creative and think for yourselves. If you do not hear it ever again from anyone else, know that your work has inspired me.

    Thank you.

  • 1141. leandra  |  October 3rd, 2009 at 2:05 AM

    Hmm…let’s further explore this Ku Klux Klan thing. Commend their think it, say it, do it-ness…? Hmm…how about commending the power of group thought? I can’t find any extraordinary reason to commend this particular hate group for finding a successful strategy.

    People who get together with similar goals and actively work towards them can achieve them. I don’t think the KKK is any different than any other mastermind group. The concept was introduced by Napoleon Hill in his “Think and Grow Rich”.

    “The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony….No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind.”

    For you to have an opinion, you should have a certain IQ.

    I love Armand for that one. Thanks, pal. Above average people still don’t think of everything. Everyone can serve a particular function in shaping the collective consciousness.

  • 1145. ShawnLight  |  October 12th, 2009 at 7:07 PM

    “A” is better than B by a mile IMO. It’s like one was taken by an artist and the other by someone who works at the Photo section at JC Pennys.

    Well, its not like “B” is a bad shot, but its just a girl with make-up on..nothing too impressive. “A” is thought-provoking..which I think a good picture should be…but both are better than I could do…its cool that you guys can challenge each other..there’s clearly a mutual respect for one another…

  • 1146. Lee Spence  |  October 13th, 2009 at 5:47 AM

    I love how your blogs influence people to take the time to process whats going on. They are really insightful.

    If you ever want to check my blog it mainly focuses on one topic or a quote, and then is complemented by a story thats actually happened or either symbolizes something real.

    As for my goals, I have list that wrote out which hangs right beside my bed. They’re goals that I will accomplish within the next 5 years.

    Sakiya -

    Have you read “Think and Grow Rich”?

    I automatically assume you have because it reflects some of your philosophies so strongly.

    Regardless, excellent read, whether it’s you or your followers I really believe anyone and everyone should take a look.

    I would have to agree that life is about free will, but let’s finish up God gave human free will to do whatever they want to do, but the will that we have is the will of God is suppose to be used to do what we need instead of what want. It not about us it’s about him that mindset got us in this mess since the very beginning.

    Anyway it did get my attention when I first saw it, but it doesn’t make me wanna buy CK clothing, just wonder why would someone advertise their clothing line by putting a naked man on a giant billboard. Can I buy abs like that over at CK or …? SMH

    man – advertising is such dangerous territory. in one sense a really good ad can be almost exhilirating. like this one (admittedly i didnt really get it at first, but once it hit me – WOW).

    but theres a potentially ugly side to it too. ads as effective as this do not speak to your conscious mind, they speak to your subconscious. theres no dialogue, the average person can’t question the authenticity of the claims the advertisement makes, so in a deep way, we accept whatever the ad is telling us. its scary because we have to trust the ethics of the people who are trying to SELL something to us, which just doesnt make sense to me.

    but man – thats a powerful image

    Hi Sakiya,
    I am writing this comment just as a blurb of my thoughts. Last night a close friend of mine (Charles) find himself in presence of you and a few others. As he was recapping the entire night, he happened to mention your name. It’s just funny how things work, I can still remember attending first TCML performance in NYC. Till this day whenever in doubt or hesitation I find myself reading over the notes i took when in attendance and reading your “a day of reflection” post. I read it because it mentions my name (haha)

    Anyway sorry, just wanted to let you know that what you do has provided inspiration to me and my circle of influence.

    I like this image. its dark, its clean and the composition of the 2 sides are well laid out… But once I read “controversial” it almost forced me into this mindset that I HAD to think wrongly about this image. It’s like had the word “controversial” not been associated with it then I would never have thought otherwise.

    When you put that word and the images together I instantly thought of the raw image of slavery and the progression to where a black man can now me in modern day society; a well dressed, suited man.

    But like I said, had “controversial” not been applied to it, then i would have never got to that conclusion.

    If imagination is the most powerful place, what are thoughts ? I live in my thoughts where I reflect using my imagination, so next time when what I was thinking about comes up, I already made the plan to succeed-in my imagination. I create a world where I can enjoy; giving the world what I want them to see. But when they get to know me, its like behind the scenes. Technically I’m on my own world tour, giving out tickets for free. It’s the worlds choice to enjoy it or not… Great Quote !

  • 1234. R  |  April 12th, 2010 at 1:09 PM

    Ehh… not really thought provoking at all.

    Firearms are inherently safe and being afraid of them is completely unnecessary and immature.

    People should want to educate themselves about firearms and take safety courses to get a better understanding of the responsibilities that revolve around guns.

    Automatically thinking that they are “bad” or that they are only used to murder people and spreading that message is just as bad as telling people that they should never talk about sex and abstinence is the only answer.
    - or that rap music makes you a bad person so don’t listen to it.
    - or that video games turn kids violent so don’t ever play them.
    - or that tv gives a false view of reality so don’t watch it.

    Instead of dismissing things, we should be trying to educate people so that they don’t make the wrong decisions when they inevitably come into contact with an unknown that they were told nothing about so that they can have a better understanding and make the right choices.

    The average person growing up is going to be exposed to many different things no matter how much the parents try to put them in a “bubble” so instead of letting our youth learn about things from television or other kids at school, we should be teaching them how to be safe, how to be responsible, and how to react in certain situations.

    A firearm is only as dangerous as the person who is handling it just as a motor vehicle is extremely dangerous to someone who doesn’t know how to operate one properly or had insufficient training/knowledge.

    This video does not want you to think or learn about anything, it wants you to embrace the fear of an unknown which is a terrible life lesson. Being scared and running away from things you may know little about won’t get anyone anywhere.

  • 1235. Leandra  |  April 16th, 2010 at 11:24 PM

    I’m in complete agreeance and support of the economic benefits of “going green” but I think that touting economics as the supreme virtue only further perpetuates the reason why people aren’t thinking or don’t think of the larger and signficantly more important reasons.

    We aren’t “saving the Earth”. This planet will and does take care of itself. All that we consider to be “problems” are inconveniences to our livelihood on this planet. Ninety-nine percent of all the species that ever inhabited Earth are extinct. The green movement is our chance to not join that number…for now at least. Any attempts made to live within the natural balance of this particular planet are truly to save US, not it.

    Our lives are patterned on a system of sheer parasitism, exploiting the host for all it has to offer with no forethought: if the host dies, what happens to us?

    The green movement is a capitalist attempt to correct some things, but it’s still mostly half-assed as truly living in sync with the Earth would require a lot more than metal water bottles, canvas shopping bags, organic food, and electric cars.

    Think bigger. Than yourselves. Than your money. The planet is in disarray because we are in disarray. We are disconnected from nature and what’s natural, and, subsequently, from ourselves.

    Having more money is always great. But there’s so much more and so much more to it. :)

    Life changes…We are blessed with a gift to control our own destiny. It can also be viewed as a curse if not nurtured properly. This site displays thoughts that I have found very useful in creating. Thank you and your Welcome!! Keep up the good work.

    COngrats! I can’t believe I missed this. This is my school too, I’ve always wanted to meet you! I hope you come back again!

    I agree 100%, sacrafice is necessary to make it to the finish line. Greatness isn’t achieved by sitting on the beach all summer or sipping hot cocoa all winter. It requires hard work, focus and dedication to one day be able to sit on the beach and look back at what you’ve done and plan your next bigger move!!!

    i think the “Woodstock” like concert is a sweet idea. i know a perfect place for it too. New Haven, Connecticut! by Yale University there is a large field, about 16 acres, with a stage already set. New Haven is the second largest municipality in Connecticut, and the sixth largest municipality in New England. With a core population of over 120,000, and more than 500,000 people in the immediate area im sure getting people to the event would be no problem. That coupled with the fact that “The Green” as we call it, is so close to the Yale campus, it’s an ideal spot for The Think Movement… just a thought.

    I think the one aspect that ties this topic together is passion.

    I think the common denominator of all mega successful individuals is that theyre totally consumed and passionate about their work. and its been said, that when you discover your passion you will never work another day in your life. so in theory, sacrifice and discipline to the motivated and passionate individual become almost unconcious habits that naturally develop.

    and i think its when you operate at this level that you no longer view those sacrifices as burdens. maybe this should be emphasized more. find your passion and simply do what you love. chances are the ones struggling to make those sacrifices dont have good enough reasons to want to commit in the first instance.

    Great interview! As far as your question, I think the man is paying more for her to leave afterwards. Messing with a prostitute, there are no strings attached.

    hey just wanted to finally say what’s up and tell you that I love what you’re doing and you have really inspired me in a lot of ways. i’m currently going to school and I am majoring in professional sales (william paterson university of new jersey… only school with a major in professional sales) and the things that I read here, your mentality, your interviews (especially the one with the CEO of that pr company… I forget what it was called) it’s all very inspiring. I purchased your books and have had other people read it in front of me and it always generates great conversation. I always appreciated good advice; it helped me get through tough times and I always will believe that we are put on this planet to genuinely help each other. so I put together a little blog of my own(http://todaymyopponentis.tumblr.com) and I myself have decided that I want to write and publish my own short book one day. anyways, just wanted to stop by and show my appreciation. by the way, thanks for shouting me out on your blog when I purchased your book. money well spent. I would have purchased it for 5x what I payed for it. keep up the good work. – Mike

    Thanks for coming out to Hunter College to share your story and numerous experiences. I only caught the end of your presentation but I’m sure your story was inspirational and informative. I was able to meet you and have you sign the books but the convo was brief.
    I would like to talk more because I am in the process of publishing my first poetry/spoken word book and i would like to run some ideas by you. I figured that since you have done it already, you could give me some pointers etc.
    My name is Stephen Beard and my contacts are :Stephencbeard@gmail.com and cell 646-660-0712.
    I look forward to speaking to you
    Peace Brother,

    The question that comes into my mind is: Do you hate to apologize or do you hate to acknowledge you made a mistake? Or do you hate to apologize when you believe that you made no mistake?

    Either way, an apology is a weak and exploitative form of gesture. To acknowledge having made a mistake should always be a rational thought process. An apology consists of destroying your self-esteem (the bite you feel?) either through guilt and the need for immediate compensation by the person that might have been damaged or through fear of being rejected for your mistake. Either way, you exploit the victim on a whim by expecting them to forget/forgive that you made an error and betray yourself by not allowing yourself to stay conscious of the consequences of your errors.

    The victim of your supposed error will take part in the ritual either out of the same fear of rejection or through indulging in commiseration for your guilt and possibly the joy that comes from the power that you grant them by destroying your self-esteem for them.

    In the end, it doesn’t make you a better person to apologize. It makes you a slave of everybody who witnesses you make a mistake, of your own guilt and of your fear, which lets other people control you. If you do it against your will, you are controlled by one of these emotions.

    It is morally superior not to apologize, because it gives other people the chance to judge you by what you are. And the corresponding feeling to that – to face the consequences of your actions – is courage. Also, there is no unspoken promise involved in the form of “I promise to change”. If you feel that you need to change because the consequences are either very severe or the decision that led to them was an honest mistake, you will become a better person much more than by apologizing and running away from the situation through forgiveness.
