I wanted to change things up often. I've had Mario riding a dinosaur, cool electronic patterns, and other stupid stuff as a background. Currently, there's ice cream trucks, to fit the summer them. Who doesn't like ice cream trucks? Yeah, it might clash. But that's because I simply don't give a fuck. (Do you see a theme here?) I'm not making a blog to fit in and make it like everyone elses. Where's the fun in that?
Have you ever had a friend show you a song and after listening to it, you reply, "Oh yeah, that sounds like (mainstream band here)." Where's the fun in ripping off another's ideas? By putting whatever I want on here, it's a way of expressing one's self. One day, MAYBE this blog will become huge and take over the world. I wouldn't want people to say, "Have you checked out that mega huge blog that's fucking everywhere now? (referring to my badass setup I got going on here) Reminds me a lot of (another mainstream noun)." I DON'T WANT TO FOLLOW IN THE TRACKS OF EVERYONE. And not everyone should. If we did, then we'd all be stuck in monotonous routine that gets old real fast.
So what am I saying in the end? I simply do not care. I don't care if you read this and scoff, or applaud me as a genius. I simply do not care. I'm not in charge of your life, as you're not in charge of mine. Everyone gets so caught up in doing what others want us to do, or to do what is seen as "more traditional." If we always did that, then there would never be anything new produced, and the world would be a very, very boring place.
This dude is sad because he never branched off and thought on his own.
Don't be afraid to take a chance. Get the balls to talk to that hot chick you've been eyeing. Go out and try some new food. Do that thing you've been wanting to do, but just haven't done yet for whatever reason. By not caring, you shun out all those others that may judge you or look down at you. And honestly, they're fucking worthless. They have nothing better to do but bring you down.
Music is how it is today because people stopped giving a fuck about what others say and just tried something new. Eminem famously said in his song "Without Me" in 2006 that "no one listens to techno music." Now, don't me wrong, Eminem is the man. But people didn't listen to him, and now techno and electronic music is HUGE.
In conclusion, you just have to stop giving a fuck sometimes and do what you want, regardless of what others think. Do something different. Don't be afraid to put up tacky ice cream trucks as a background.... TO YOUR LIFE.
(that last sentence was deep, wasn't it?)
