Thanks, i hope you enjoy it :)
The story goes like this,
I used to have a huge crush on this girl a few months ago, (i think i’ve written about her before…) the deal is that i sort of stayed away from her ever since that being by her side would just hurt me eventually. She had boyfriend and i would respect it.
On march 23rd i took her to a Foster The People show in order to make it up to her, somehow, for missing out her birthday. It didn’t end up as expected. Pretty much she made out with one of her “brother-esque” friends at the after party…
And, you know? I don’t blame it on the guy, believe me, i’m not mad at him. I don’t care what happened, really, but her? shit, man. I respected her and her speech of cheating on her boyfriend, i understood it and the times we dated subsequently i didn’t try to do anything, even though i was dying to do something; which was basically the reason why i was staying away at first.
I told myself i wouldn’t look for her anymore unless she came first. I never complained or showed any sign of anger that might have displayed my inconvenience. One day she probably took a hint and hit me up through facebook asking for my mobile number because she’d lost her phone; i gave it to her but added no extra word to the message. She wrote me the next morning saying i better put on the table my problem instead of acting so rude (?) because as far as she knew she didn’t do anything to me to make me act this way (how was i acting like? i had not even spoken to her for about a month), and that if i was not interested anymore i should better let her know because she’s sick and tired of looking for me like a fool…
Seemed like i had missed a big part of this conversation because i certainly had no idea of what i did or said to make her feel like that. I came across this girl a few weeks ago at a party i was working at and she took me outside the venue to talk, we agreed i would call her later that week because we didn’t finish talking; i didn’t. I haven’t called her yet to be more specific.
It doesn’t hurt, it just makes me think what would have happened, you know? basically the chances this time were my side of the balance, and if i would have really really wanted it, i could have pulled the strings myself but i didn’t.
It just feels like a “pale” taste in mouth.
Update: Right before posting this last friday (i’ve been hesitating for a while) i called her after reading she was moving out. She picked up and said indeed she’d just moved out.
It still feels “pale”.
This just came out right in time! When i did this re-edit i first thought of Tiger and Woods, the editainment chiefs. I remember i missed their show at Rex Club in Paris last year because i totally confused sunday with saturday.
So, yesterday i finally got to chill with Tiger and Woods at a pool party and also happens to be that ‘Delusion’ was finally released at Bad Pop’s “Materia Obscura”; a new compilation which features songs by Steffaloo and Miami Daze and some other cool acts as well. I recommend you to grab your copy from: http://releases.badpop.net/album/materia-obscura
It’s funny to know that Valerio and Marco actually remember that show back in Paris, (those are their real names, by the way, and yes! they are italians). Their set last night was huge, i totally felt shame for a girl that asked them for Tellier’s “Kilometer” to what they said “it’s live, we play our own stuff”, haha.
Unfortunately my friend got kicked out of the party and, as the good friend i am, i left right behind him. It ruined half my chances (if you know what i mean) of hooking with a brunette mamacita i was dancing with.
Make sure you download ‘Delusion’ from soundcloud as soon as you can that i am taking it down briefly in order to show respect to the guys at Bad Pop.
Jae Wheeler (who wrote and sang the lyrics for Damages off Pardo):
Imagine yourself sitting on top of an iceberg (that iceberg being your subconscious) with a paddle in the water staring at the goal you wish to achieve whatever that may be. You make some strides towards the goal but to no avail.
1) If you know anything about an iceberg you will know that the tip of the iceberg being observed is misleading for it does no justice in showing its colossal body of ice beneath the surface of the water.
Now consider this, the consciousness yes operates in response to images but moreso it responds to vocal and emotionally charged stimuli. Our subconscious however does not. It operates more along the lines of imagery and emotions thus images are tremendously powerful in bringing about changes. You don’t believe me just open a magazine, turn on the radio, go to your local abarrotes or any main street, turn on a t.v. and having a stopwatch running count the time that accrues and the number of commercials and/or advertisements you see flicker or flash on the screen over a course of a day. Trust me, imagery works.
So if my explanation has been clear maybe you will have already guessed about my next point which is what you truly believe, feel, sense, know, in the profundity of your subconsciousness you will express in your behavior and experience in the world of phenomenon. I know this sounds like that law of attraction, the secret bullshit, but it really has nothing to do with that.
Imagine that in the depths of your subconscious the images you hold of yourself are those of failure, repentance, disaster, misery, sadness, lost, feebleness, unhappiness, well that’s the life you will live because everytime something goes wrong it will just reaffirm to you that all those emotions and images lodged inside your subconscious are right and not only will it reaffirm those images, thoughts, and emotions but it will strengthen them and by strenghtening them produce a behavior that compliments these negative affirmations bringing about more and more similar situations.
The trick is to change the images and by changing the images change the emotions they produce in order to bring about the desired behavior you so desire.
There are also ways of testing this motif and you do it by creating new images. One way of carrying out this process is by finding images. I tried it out and it’s true. It may seem like such an easy thing but if you take it serious what you should discover is that you won’t choose just the first image you see but you are going to take a loooong time and if you don’t then you most likely chose the first image without having considered what that says about your imagination. (think about that)
You can give yourself anything you want. The only limit is you.
Lmao, imagine you standing in front of your own way. You should make way for yourself.
Man, print out the pictures of what kind of house you would like to have, where you would want to live, how many cars, friends, women you would want to have, how much money you would like to see in your bank account, how many bank accounts full of money you would like to have, all the places in the world you would travel to or what you would do with the money, and I guarantee it should not be an easy feat for if it is then it demonstrates your lack of imagination. You just have to visualize it man. Don’t envy others nor want what they have but just have yours.
I hope my words have been of use. Stay in there champ.
