Reverse Skydiving: Revenge Will Surely Come

Aug 17, 2018

A serious music insight by Muse’s song “Butterflies And Hurricanes” will help me give that blog the right direction. The importance of rivalry and vengeance?

Sometimes I get sick and tired. I don’t know why though but, when I think about my life (I’m an experienced man of 37 years now), I know I want to choose my battles. And fight for something that’s meaningful to me.

The battle of Los Angeles is a fantastic one. When I was 18 years old, I went to California to study astronomy. I got a B+ at the end of the 2-month program. Just before finishing high school, I got a mediocre 10-4 for my final exams.

How one can get such a mediocre grade and then, 2 months later, shine like a superstar? The more I think about it, the more my eyes start to hurt: someone at school decided to handicap me and falsify my grades.

Usual Fee, Plus Expenses: Confidential Information

Something strange happened when I was 14 years old. I was surprised by a vague incident. A friend of mine was being harassed at a party where I wasn’t invited and I could do nothing. That friend died shortly after.

To this day, I still wonder what I should do. Should I write about it openly on the Internet? Should I write a song about it because it will be much easier to understand? One thing for sure: I do not like to remain helpless and clueless.

The fact that I was the witness of an agression and didn’t do something still haunts me. Maybe that’s why I’m not moving an inch. Maybe that’s how I ended up in the worst place on Earth: Paris and its region.

True, Seattle also knows about this strange climate called oceanic degraded. Weird influences from communism.

Got To Change The World And Be Heard

I thought I shook myself free. Usually, I bounce back fast. But I’m half delirious. Too many women, too many pills.

When I was 30 years old, I changed the world. I didn’t do that alone though and I’m making sure to surround myself with a sea of wonderful people. La creme de la creme if I may say so.

Sometimes, I want to give up that stupid fight that cost me so much that God made an intervention as if he was my friend. I wonder if someone is replaying my wonderful achievement.

The lesson I remember from that ultimate experience was the following: if you can dignify it, then you will be paid. I repeat: it was dignified.

But now the conversation has run dry. And I’m left wandering my childhood neighbourhood looking for someone who died long ago. 90% of the time, dead people don’t come back. You heard me, there is a chance of coming back.

Now Is Synonymous Of Calm And Serenity

Sometimes I feel like a motherless child. I always liked that song but now I feel like my entourage has let me down. All they talk about is that prescription pill and that mission of mercy to the new frontier.

We’re in August and I decided to take a 1-month vacation. But I thought I would write once a week instead of 3/4 times a week. Just to make sure my blog doesn’t run dry. I wonder if any of you is getting out of here alive.

If you ask to me to turn water into wine, I might be able to do it. But only from a musical perspective. I’m a talented musician but my defences are being severely attacked on a daily basis by my neighbourhood.

This Is Crazy, My Number Was Called

I’ll remember the promise I made. And maybe I’ll remember the ones I forgot, like not being a jerk with my Facebook account because sometimes I feel it’s useless. It seems Facebook has decreased organic reach and I have spent 700$ to this day to advertise my blog.

Theoretically, I broke even because I made 3000$ in 9 months. But my bank account indicates zero. That’s because I forgot about my dignity promise.

I have met several persons who are interested in helping me with that blog. But I’m unable to pay them of course. 9 months: this blog is still a foetus or maybe he’s just a new born.

If I lose my woman, I will try not to lose my mind. When I was young, when I was down on my luck, I would go to a small shop and sell my records to make some money. Your first enemy is yourself, in case you’re asking questions about rivalry and vengeance.
