JUST A SMALL TOWN WHELK TRYNA LIVE A BIG CITY DREAM

It’s Krismas!!!

Nearly Krismas, it is nearly Krismas. Which means eating in excess (guiltily), drinking in excess (not so guiltily), and listening to Mariah Carey’s ‘All I want for Krismas’ on repeat (no way guiltily). It also means the annual release of the Kardashian’s Krismas card. A Krismas event in itself. While I am a little bit far behind with the commentary, the card was revealed a little while ago now. I only managed to watch the Krismas Special Episode last night, prime Sunday night viewing. The card was shot by Dave LaChapelle, on his website it is titled a page of revelations/Black Friday, and boy is it a page of revelations. The dollar signs, the tabloid’s scattered throughout, an old broken and used mannequin placed cleverly beside a glass caged, old broken Bruce. A mix of popular culture, with the grim reality of it’s significance in this world. The Black Friday part bemused me, was it shot on Black Friday, is it referring to the black dresses, did the Kardashian’s black souls encompass the studio that day and was the experience an all around bleak and sordid affair for LaChapelle?

Kardashians

Who knows but it seems LaChapelle ┬áis completely disregarding the Kardashian’s, their lifestyle and celebrity culture as a whole yet clever enough to have them actually appear in his own artistic satire of their life! Oh well, it seemed to have swooped right over the Kardashian clans heads and LaChapelle is laughing all the way to the bank with a cool $250,000. All just pawns in the game I say. Besides the symbolism behind it all, there is also one pretty major other issue with the whole thing, it might be the worst looking Krismas card I have ever seen, where’s the Krismas tree, the Santa hats, the fake snow, the cheesy Krismas jumpers, SCOTT DISICK!?!! I’m no Dave LaChapelle but it’s just all wrong.

Life Lessons Kenny Powers Style

If you ask me, the secret to success is to have a diverse portfolio. Too much of any one thing is f***ing no bueno. Of course, sometimes, balancing can be hard. But all things worth having are worth fighting for. Sometimes hard work pays off. If a man doesn’t have a dream, well, guess what? His soul begins to die. So after you’ve accomplished your dreams, the best thing to do is to come up with new dreams. That way, as the years roll on, as they will do, you’ll always look to the future with hope. But of course the future’s sure to hold its fair share of miseries. All kinds of sh*tty sorrows. I find solace in the fact that from each sorrow comes a little bit of knowledge. And with knowledge comes wisdom. If you’re lucky, you get a second act in life. But sooner or later, death will come. Unannounced, Old Man Reaper comes to reclaim your soul. All you can hope for is that the people you love will cherish the time they spent with you. In the end, you judge a man by how he influenced the world. You judge him by the seeds he left behind. And you judge the seeds by the harvest. Kenny Powers’ harvest remains unknown, but I’m pretty goddamn proud of my seeds.Image

A great life mantra, Danny McBride can do no wrong!
