We exist in this world.
We exist in this world with infinite hates, ignorance, injustices, and true negativity.
What do we do? Nothing…
We work and play video games. We start shitty trendy bands that just recycle and water down whatever mtv or those great clear channel stations keep feeding us. We pretend to not have dreams. We multiply ourselves to justify relationships with people we do not love. We gossip to ignore truths that hang in our spirits. We glorify filler and useless entertainment to divert the attention of our own daily perils. We buy useless and meaningless shit to dissimulate a life unfulfilled or under stimulated. We identify with subcultures that have been laid out for society by marketing teams somewhere in skyscrapers in far away cities. We play pawns. We look away from the things that disturb us. We fear the unknown. When confronted, our mouths hang without answer or conviction. We do not create; we die.
I know this; I have lived this. Despite the amazing instances I have day in and out, I am sorrowed to partake in a world of monotony and foolishness. It sickens me to the core. As I am criticizing myself for being just a little to cranked on the bitch mode, please consider this. We all are in this world and face similar challenges everyday in and out. As American children, we are taught that we all have equal positions and opportunities on our path. Still, despite all this, the richest man is still dismayed, and he has no answers. What is missing? What is everyone looking for? In all this, a question emerges. This question fills my head and swallows my heart whole.
What do we do with our lives?
This is my answer. This is my outcry to a society that has forgotten the beauty in art and writing. Almost every great human achievement has one thing in common- creativity. How did we get here? Who cares…. Why are we here? Lame, shut up and go to work… What do we do with our lives? We create.
Welcome to the blog/zine it’s NOT killer. This is a zine that focuses on the positivity and progression through creation and art. We have no agenda, no themes, or a uniform political bias. The zine will be a collection of writings taken from the blogs written by myself and a few others whom I believe to be inspirational, amazing writers as well as people. Also, each issue will be including art from a few local artists. The blog will be updated very often with probably at least one person contributing every day. Just to remove any confusion, this is a focus on the positivity of creating. These entries may be as negative as a stick in the mud, but this is purpose and art. Welcome to it’s NOT killer, my newest passion.
