The Explorer Reloaded, Part II

Yea, SO about that raw footage. You’d think that after I saw that red mist through my view finder several times that I’d jump into my car and break out of that place. But no, instead, I went on the other side where there was a dam, and took lots of photos.

I swear, I don’t know if it’s because I’m former Marine, where I think I’m untouchable. This was not my first time doing some shit like this, and I’m either going to need to stop, take advantage of the 11th amendment, or photograph ONLY in populated areas. People are crazy out here, you know?

The photos will be posted at a later time though.

The Explorer Reloaded

I’m always going outdoors somewhere taking photos. I wasn’t quite prepared for this particular adventure.

I had googled the terms “slave cabins in New Jersey.” Google then decided to show me a place called “The Solitude House” in a town called High Bridge. The Google results failed to show the ACTUAL status of the property. I thought I was on my way to a museum or something. I get to the town and immediately smelled “Republicans.” I sent two of my friends my current location, and told them that I was in a “KKK Town.”

Anyway, as you can see, the place was damn near desolate, not to mention winter can suck the life out of any environment.

Stay tuned for part 2, where I will post raw footage.

Remind me to always check with Yelp before I do Google.

Intuition & Dreams (Aaliyah)

We live in world, on a planet, in a place where were we taught by the false practices of society, to never trust instincts. If today you were to express yourself to another and say, “I don’t think that I should do this or that,” you will most likely be faced with, “You’re paranoid.” The following excerpt was taken from a German magazine, a few weeks before the death of Aaliyah. Pay attention to the details of her recurring dream:

The month before she died in a plane crash, singer Aaliyah said she had a recurring dream that she was flying away from her problems.

“It is dark in my favourite dream. Someone is following me. I don’t know why. I’m scared,” she said in an interview with German weekly Die Zeit, which was released yesterday.

“Then, suddenly, I lift off. Far away. How do I feel? As if I am swimming in the air. Free. Nobody can reach me. Nobody can touch me. It’s a wonderful feeling.”

The interview, in a Paris hotel, was one of the last given by the 22-year-old star, who died with eight others when her plane crashed after takeoff on Saturday in the Bahamas.

There were also reports that Aaliyah told her mother via phone that she didn’t want to get on the small plane, and that her mother told her that maybe she should not have gone.

In Loving Memory of Aaliyah

The following documentary gives a detailed account on the life and legacy of Aaliyah Dana Haughton. On what would have been her 39th birthday, we remember her on this day.

Born: January 1+6 = 7, 1979

Died: August 2+5 = 7, 2001

Rest in Peace Babygirl.

The number 7 is the seeker, the thinker, the searcher of Truth (notice the capital “T”). The 7 doesn’t take anything at face value — it is always trying to understand the underlying, hidden truths. The 7 knows that nothing is exactly as it seems and that reality is often hidden behind illusions.

Nigga

Nigga (/ˈnɪɡə/) is a colloquial term used in African American Vernacular English that began as an eye dialect form of the word nigger, an ethnic slur against black people. In some dialects of English, the word is pronounced the same as nigger, including where common speech is non-rhotic.

Whether you choose to acknowledge it or not, create your own reality to justify the use of the term, or simply don’t care, the fact remains that the term “Nigga” was birthed by “Nigger.” The word is charged with darkness and hate, and the use of it will continue to have its subconscious psychological effects, even if you are in denial of it. Let’s also keep in mind that this word, if used in the UK or South Africa, is an actual charge.
