An emoji can effect an entire mood when it come to conversation. No matter if it’s through text or social media the wrong emoji will make or break you when it comes to networking or communicating.
Bro, let me start with saying I don’t have a problem with anyone we all need love and life is to complex for me to judge. With that being said I made a huge mistake! so I am running a social marketing campaign with a dope app that I found, (I will write about the app later if you are looking for help with brand work) and I was programming it with people I know and actions blah blah blah. Anyway the app let a strange comment on a picture of a guy with his shirt off that I know. The good news is he said something so I could fine tune my attack but if you decide to use emoticons 😍 make sure they don’t rub someone the wrong way. Lol
🤯Fired🔥up about The Spire Studio?
Let me guess, you have been looking for a home studio setup and you keep coming across this little Spire thing. The company iZotope has a few videos for you to watch where they briefly explain how the studio in one hand actually works, but you're not quite sold.
Well, I'm not here to sell you on it. However if your a rapper like me and my boy ConeHead in this picture we could have used something like this back in the day instead of trying to cram a much larger set up ( laptop included) in a bathroom. Don't get me wrong I'm no expert on the Spire so you're not going to see a bunch of the geeky tech stuff but what I can bring to you is a practical use of the product from my standpoint (Timothy Westbrook II) as a Hip Hop artist and all around creator.
Let me give you the story on how I got my hands on the Spire. ConeHead and I were out in Peoria, IL on a work project and at the time I still had a lot of work to do on my new album ”Saving My Change”. At the time we had a recording setup and it was running Pro tools 12 so I was not at all concerned about our ability to produce. What was missing? The thing about being a young artist is you have all the creativity in the world and you would do anything to record something that you think is going to be a good song. Im talking about anything! I had become to routine. If you’re like me you’ll set up a recording both in the bathroom 🚽. I’ve also recorded on RadioShack microphones with my laptop and some pirated software that I have no idea how to work. Trust me I know what your going through. 😵 That’s why I believe the Spire studio is a perfect product for someone just starting out or somebody trying to bring back spontaneity when you’re recording.
Like I said I’m not going to have all of the geeky answers and different things like that, but take it from an independent artist that is just trying to record as much as possible. The Spire Studio is a good product for the price and I think you should definitely get one if it’s in your budget. Just keep in mind with the lack of videos on the product, You just better learn how to work it!
My 3rd Eye and Me
The 3rd eye is a growing topic in my everyday life and I notice a lot of people around me have no clue what it is or what it’s all about. The thing is if you know me then you know I’m not going to give a scientific breakdown of what the 3rd eye or pineal gland is but I will offer my experience with it.
It was about 2014 when I first started my journey with the 3rd eye. I was in Florida with some good friends and we decided to get LSD because a guy that was around at the moment could find us some. Long story short after a great trip and my mind thinking of perspective I never even considered I was on the comedown. Unlike everyone else, I decided that I would stay awake and smoke weed and play Acid Trip by Chance The Rapper. I can’t remember exactly what song was playing but Chance said something and out of nowhere I had this feeling that the back of my head was starting to open up. I will relate it to enlightenment because that’s what it felt like and the first thought that I had when I came to was everything was one and I was no different than an ant 🐜 or a tree 🌲.At the moment when I came to this, I had a fly trying to land on my leg and I noticed them was flying all around me. However, only this one wanted my attention, so reached out to him with the thought that if he knew what I was thinking he knows I want swat him. The fly not only stayed put but he gave me a high 5. (We are all equal parts important and nothing) At this moment I would feel a slight pressure on a scar that I have on my forehead from childhood.
That’s was the start of a lot of research, something I never did on my own before but the more I dove in the more I was able to figure out what I was feeling. I still do not fully understand but in the videos, I give examples of everything in more detail. I hope to learn more as my life goes on and anything new I will make a video on to keep updates available.
