Vintage EMPT. As you can see we haven’t changed much, we’re still those divergent kids who can’t be placed, still pushing the limits, testing things, exploring, traveling and challenging ourselves, unlearning and growing.
James Bond had a big impact on me for so many reasons. The vintage Bond films are aesthetically wonderful in how they capture culture, society and the world at large. The character was a man that didn’t hide behind cultural facades, everyone knows how he is and everyone accepts it. You see all these billionaires and successful men constantly getting caught doing what they’ve always done and it’s a big deal because they lied in the first place. Anyways, here’s a post from back in the day – New York City December 28, 2011
You only live twice or so it seems, one life for yourself and one for your dreams…”
Everybody is always talking about what they’re going to do, what they want to become. Every year we have resolutions, new plans and countless ambitions. We have these grand fantasies about the things we’d like to do sexually, we dream adventurous but take a moment to think about how many of these thoughts and ideas come actually come to fruition. What happens to those inspiring thoughts? For many of us they come and go, usually written off as something you would never dare do or whatever other lame excuse we can come up with. Then we wake up from our dream life, come back to “reality,” go to work, settle for the easily accessible, go home to our girlfriends/boyfriends and hold back on those fantasies and live out that second life…
You drift through the years and life seems tame…”
How often do we take advantage of the limitless nature of the universe? Sadly nowhere near enough. I could write a few books on this but what I’m trying to say is life the dream, I’m not talking about any standardized 1980’s bs rockstar interpretation of what the dream is supposed to be. I’m not talking about the ever ambiguous American Dream, I’m saying live your dream and do it now.
You could spend an entire lifetime waiting for that dream life to come true, waiting for the so called right person to live out your fantasies with, etc. Good things don’t come to those who wait, that’s a load of crap. Good things come to those who wait while diligently working for the things they want. So don’t sit around, actively pursue the things you want and love, forget the consequences – “And love is a stranger who’ll beckon you on, don’t think of the danger or the stranger is gone.”
We all live two lives but we don’t have to, make your life simpler and consolidate those thoughts baby. Reality is malleable, just look at all the marvelous technology around you as an example, someone thought of a wallet sized computer/phone before it became real. The same applies…
This dream is for you, so pay the price Make one dream come true, you only live twice…”
