Ignorance is Bliss! #NameTheRapper @TopDawgEnt #TDE

And do I believe life is so sweet?
It will be even sweeter than a cherry tree

We’ll look back someday and realise today’s just a rehearsal, I see

Only joy and laughter to gauge me off the brink
Of this silly madness and fake smiles that we call beef

So I seek,
an oasis of indifference
to keep me away from these black and white militants
of hate or lack of love that still breathes

But if the moon takes the place of the sun in a day,
Would that pretend our hearts of gold into shades of grey?
I dunno, but I do know we were born ready-made,
so i need not a lame version of how to float in the sky for longer than a day

We’re guided safely ashore
The wind is calm, the water still
We’re firmer in pace but wary
Cos the unending turbulence still speaks

What moves us fearlessly? Faith!

An indelible mark of destiny;
A prolonged silence amidst troubles, doubt and worry

A reproach against feeble will that stifles all that it may; A cast set of patterns that holds stronger my will

A unique psyche that saves in the face of danger;
A random prefix to the individual character.

I hear you flow with the wind, I duck;
What wind? You call out to my ignorance. The wings you cling to, I respond.
So you snap out of oblivion and catch yourself before you fall.

Faith is no left-sided biggie, faith is no right-handed shortie. Faith is you tall on your feet against the wind and the tide only but to say with dignity that: Ignorance is bliss.

Resentment becomes Respect #WorldRefugeeDay

I remember when I first saw you
It was hate at first sight
Resentment and disregard brewed within me like a burning bush laced with whips and scorpions

But a chance still came through
A chance at redemption; to turn this resentment to a positive tree
However, you no even send me

Back and forth we went till we could no longer stand each other
Eventually destiny brought us back together
This time to know each other better; to see us gush with smiles while in harsh weather

It was then that I knew you, saw the real you, and respected you for being you
I knew, that I misjudged you

Why did I even hate you in the first place?
Y‎ou’re just like me. A mortal man.

Maybe the next time I see you,‎
I’ll pretend like it was just the evil ‎
A past tense never to brew so pitiful
That feel of pure resentment, never again will see through. ‎

Kim Kardashian’s Butt Is an Empty Promise

TIME

Last night Paper magazine released two of their latest covers, one featuring Kim Kardashian and the other one featuring an even more famous celebrity: Kim Kardashian’s butt. They were emblazoned with the words “Break the Internet,” and they certainly did. The images instantly shot to the highest currency in today’s media: they were trending. But that’s pretty much all they were. There is nothing behind that butt other than it being a really nice butt. That is the end–pun intended–of it.

This is not the first time that we have seen Kim Kardashian’s posterior. And it is not the first time that we have seen Kim Kardashian naked on the cover of a magazine. Strangely enough, she suggested back in 2010, the last time she was naked on a cover, that she wouldn’t pose nude again. She already broke that promise once this year, baring it all for British…

Free Banksy!

Early yesterday, fugitive graffiti artist, painter, film director, Oscar nominee, political activist who over the years has been known under the pseudonym Banksy was arrested by police and unmasked in his London art studio. He is being held without bail on charges of vandalism, money laundering, conspiracy, racketeering and counterfeiting which is believed to be politically motivated because of his contempt for the government as a critic.
Local residents and admirers of Banksy across the world call the arrest a waste of tax payers money and a plot against one who produces beautiful thought-provoking artwork.
In solidarity with the “Free Banksy” movement gaining strength across the world, I have decided to conceal the identity – as exposed by the London police – but instead prefer to leave you with one of his most memorable quotes:

“People are taking the piss out of you every day. They butt into your life, take a cheap shot at you and then disappear. They leer at you from tall buildings and make you feel small. They make flippant comments from buses that imply you’re not sexy enough and that all the fun is happening somewhere else. They are on TV making your girlfriend feel inadequate. They have access to the most sophisticated technology the world has ever seen and they bully you with it. They are the advertisers and they are laughing at you. You, however, are forbidden to touch them. Trademarks, intellectual property rights and copyright law mean advertisers can say what they like wherever they like with total impunity.
F*ck that. Any advert in a public space that gives you no choice whether you see it or not is yours. It’s yours to take, re-arrange and re-use. You can do whatever you like with it. Asking for permission is like asking to keep a rock someone just threw at your head. You owe the companies nothing. Less than nothing, you especially don’t owe them any courtesy. They owe you. They have re-arranged the world to put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission, don’t even start asking for theirs.”

“Gerda” (In memory of Carolyn Fizer 1924-2014)

Down the long curving walk you trudge to the street,
Stoop-shouldered in defeat, a cardboard suitcase
In each hand. Gerda, don’t leave! the child cries
From the porch, waving and weeping; her stony mother
Speaks again of the raise in salary
Denied. Gerda demands ten dollars more
Than the twenty-five a month she has been paid
To sew, cook, keep house, dress and undress the child,
Bathe the child with the rough scaly hands
she cleans in Clorox; sing to the child
In Swedish, teach her to pray, to count her toes
In Swedish. Forty years on, the child still knows how.

Tesla Motors’ New ‘D’ Cars Are All-Wheel-Drive, Not Self-Drive

TIME

Tesla Motors on Thursday night disappointed some auto-market watchers’ expectations that it would put out a self-driving car — but the electric car juggernaut did announce the release of a higher tech version of its Model S car, with all-wheel drive and rapid acceleration rivaling that of luxury vehicles, USA Today reports.

The tripped-out new Model S will have all-wheel drive, plus acceleration of 0-60 mph in just 3.2 seconds, says the newspaper. It can also reach a top speed of 155 mph, up from the Model S’s peak velocity of 130 mph.

“This car is nuts. It’s like taking off from a carrier deck,” Elon Musk, Tesla’s CEO, told press assembled at Los Angeles’ Hawthorne airport, where his commercial space travel company SpaceX is also based.

The “D” cars will also come with a package of new safety features, including the ability to read speed-limit signs and shift…
